Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, pg 7: The Divine Feminine

“If you don’t know what to do, maybe you shouldn’t do anything and just wait for clarity; wait for the impulse to act.”  — Charles Eisenstein, Time of the Sixth Sun Movie

FIERCE LOVE is one of the chief gifts of the Divine Feminine working through the hearts of both men and women.  Other gifts are resilience and an empathic capacity to embrace pain and bring healing to old wounds in the heart.  From my own experience, some of her greatest needs are honesty, affection, unconditional love, finding her voice and being heard. 

A prophetic promise from the Book of Genesis is unfolding as the head of the serpent of the human intellect is being stepped on and “bruised” by the “heel” of the Feminine.  The masculine destroyer of Mother Nature’s creations for monetary gain is being told by the Great Mother through her rising spirit in womankind: “THAT’S ENOUGH! STOP! THUS FAR AND NO FURTHER!  The news media are not bringing it to us, but it’s happening everywhere the world over.  

Take time to view this brief movie trailer of Time of the Sixth Sun.  It’s happening.  We are moving into the Golden Age of a quantum new world where things are happening as fast as thought, and love and joy are bursting out all over.  The speakers all speak from out of a balanced field of Masculine and Feminine energy.  This is a turning point in the evolution of the human race and of the Earth.  As one speaker summed it up,

“During this time of change we don’t have to do anything to protect ourselves. Going to a secret place somewhere, or hiding food in the ground or guns and stuff, and trying to protect ourselves, it’s not going to work. It’s simply about being in your heart, being connected to the Mother Earth and Father Sky, being directly connected to the Great Spirit.  This is simple. Anybody can do it.”  (Drunvalo Melchizadek)

Excerpt from SACRED ANATOMY:

The Divine Feminine

The Divine Feminine is the negatively charged body of response of Mother God to the positively charged radiance of Father God. This is not a passive receptivity but a very actively charged energy that rushes to meet the positive radiation of love through the Divine Masculine, not to serve him, nor to be at his beck and call, but to empower and dance with him. For the dance to be enjoyable and creative, the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine must both be present on the dance floor of life and engaged with one another.  The commonly known animalistic male-female relationship is not sufficient, and dissolves with the revelation of Divine Man and Divine Woman on earth.

The Feminine Principle produces the alchemy that unites us with God and then draws to us the circumstances in which we find ourselves throughout our lives in and through which we may fulfill our mission and purpose for incarnating, which is to bring the things of God, the gifts of spirit, into the world.  In the Biblical story of the wedding feast at Cana, for example, which is believed to be a celebration of the sacred marriage of Jesus and Mary of Bethany, it is Mary of Bethany who arranges for the vessels of water to be brought to Jesus to be made into wine, bringing to him as well their life’s shared mission and destiny—echoing and rectifying that event in the Genesis story of the Fall wherein reportedly Eve brought Adam the “forbidden fruit,” and with it their life’s work of creating a world on Earth without their Creator but only with their own judgements of what feels good and what is deemed evil.  By turning the water into wine Jesus made the Truth of Life once more available to Man.  

In the story of the Grail Quest, the Feminine Principle, which operates through the heart realm, can be seen as being represented by the Grail itself—the chalice out of which Jesus drank at the Last Supper.  She is the chalice, the cup, for the life blood—the substance of one’s living symbolized by the wine—from which the Lord of the Sacred Dance partakes of life with us. The cup can thus be seen as the cupped hand of Divine Providence that brings to us each moment’s task, be it large or small.

Jesus is recorded to have asked his Father from the deep passion of his heart to take the “cup” of his betrayal and ignominious execution from him.  Sometimes the Feminine brings great challenges to us that will, if accepted courageously and met with a victorious spirit, bring us closer to our core quest in life, that of union with Source. “Thy will be done” was the attitude of the Master in this seemingly impossible situation that ultimately led to his resurrection from the tomb and ascension into the arms of his heavenly Father from whence he came—from whence we all came.

Containment being her very nature, the substance of the feminine energy provides a container filled with the water of truth that turns into the wine of life when she is allowed to embrace—spiritually as well as physically—the hot and fully erected vertical shaft of radiant masculine light. She is as the water surrounding the rod of plutonium in an atomic reactor that allows it to yield its power without burning a hole in the earth, to use a modern-day energy metaphor. If he will let her, she will ground him but not smother his fire nor use it all up loving her.   They both must come clean of their shadow side for this dance to be fun and generative of the essential substance of pneumaplasm that connects them both with the Divine and with each other.  At this level of intimacy, where there is accord between a man and a woman, is found the secrets to the creation of abundance.  In The Gospel of Thomas, Jesus is recorded as saying: “If two can make peace between themselves in a single house, they can say to a mountain, ‘Move!’ and it will move.”

In no way do I imply here that she is nice and sweet and agreeable at all times.  She can be that, but she can also be fierce and tenacious when it comes to exposing and putting down the lie, which she does with equal passion as she pushes forward to uncover and lift up the truth in any given situation in life.  There is nothing quite as exhilarating in the life of a relationship than to dance in the fierce fire of the passionate woman who sees you in the places you would rather not be seen. In the Arthurian legend she is represented by the “Hag.”  Diana Durham portrays the “Hag” as:

An old woman who visits Perceval at Arthur’s court during a banquet in his honor; she lists all his faults, chief among them his failure to ask the question [Whom does the Grail serve?] when in the Grail Castle and thus relieve the king and land from suffering. She is the truth-telling aspect of the deep feminine, and can also be said to represent here withered Mother Earth herself. (Return of King Arthur, page 13)

There is interesting and controversial history associated with this principle of the Feminine aspect of Man, actually spanning all the way back to Adam and Eve in the drama of Eden at the very beginnings of human existence on earth. It is significant that the Feminine is described as a “Principle,”which literally means “beginning.” She was present with God in the Beginning.  In the Latin Mass, the opening words of St. John’s Gospel are: “In principio [my emphasis] erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deus, et Verbum erat Deus.”  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The Word is the Feminine Principle out of which all of Creation springs forth.  She was called “Eve…mother of all the living…” and She is found not only to be with God in the beginning but is God.  She, the Divine Feminine, is God creating the flesh of all living things.

This ancient story, re-written by the great patriarch Moses, may well be fraught with bias.  It is said that the serpent beguiled the woman and that the woman led the man down the garden path which took them both out of Eden.  Who knows what really constituted the so-called “Fall of man?”  This we do know, women have been blamed for the Fall all down through the ages, a stigma that has caused them unwarranted deprivation and persecution. Women have been greatly feared and therefore suppressed by men in a male-dominated world.  Not understood by men, especially when their emotions take over their expression and their wrath becomes a force with which to be reckoned, women have been kept subdued by men and have been forced to withdraw into a state of obedience and subjection to them and to adopt what is considered to be “appropriate behavior” in order to keep emotions under raps.

On her darker side, woman has been a manipulator and a seducer as well, perhaps in an attempt to reclaim some of her power and control over her life. Historically, she was burned at the stake for her sorcery during the “witch-hunts” in sixteenth and seventeenth century Europe, when forty to sixty thousand people were executed and as many more tortured and imprisoned. This violence against the feminine has left a scar in the collective heart of womankind which overshadows and impacts male-female relationships even to this day.  Deep healing is needed in the heart of Mother God.

The world has not always been dominated by the male of the human species. There were periods of history when the feminine dominated life on this planet, when the Goddess was worshiped as Creator and revered as the Supreme Giver of life.  As I said earlier, in the ancient East, Elat, the feminine gender of the word Allah, was the name used to call upon deity.  In more recent history, however, since the male has dominated the scene, the importance of the role of the feminine in life has gone from one extreme to the other in some religious cultures.

There has been a masculine bias throughout the early history of Christianity, with the feminine principle all but eliminated entirely from the face of the Earth. For example, in the fourth century the early Church Fathers declared women to be “not worthy of life”—certainly not fit to serve as priestesses and bishops as they had been accustomed—and degraded the sexual act from the “ultimate sacrament” to a necessary function to propagate the human race. Before that, sex was a sacred ritual in which the alchemy of the Feminine Principle was engaged as a means of ecstatic union with the Divine.   The secrets of this ritualistic ceremony were held in safekeeping by many groups and organizations—such as the Freemasons, the Knights Templar, the Cathars, the Priory of Sion, the Essenes and the Egyptian cult of Isis and Osiris—until just recently.

Several books have been written and continue to emerge exploring these secrets.  Research-authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince have collaborated together in a most provocative book, The Templar Revelation. According to their exhaustive research, it was by way of this sacred sex ritual of “undefiled intercourse” that kings, emperors and pharaohs, as well as messiahs and saviors of mankind, fused with the Divine and became gods themselves, earning the title of Christ, or the Anointed One.

Jesus himself is reported to have become one with the Father within through the anointing by Mary of Bethany, his cosmic mate and partner in this sacred rite of passage, first from humanity to divinity and then back to humanity as God in the flesh.  This anointing was apparently not limited to pouring precious oils (spikenard) over the feet and into the hair, but included sacred sex wherein the two penetrated the veil between heaven and earth to fuse with the Divine.  Sex was called the “ultimate sacrament” because it was through this sacred ritual that sovereign rulers could come to know union with God and release the creative power that would bless and preserve their kingdom—the land and all their subjects—making them fertile and productive.

My next post will once again feature my favorite Arthurian legend author, Diana Durham, in her masterful consideration and interpretation of the legendary Holy Grail.  Until then, I bid you good day and pray health and happiness for you.          -Anthony (tpal70@gmail.com)

 

Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, page 5: From Patriarchy to Partnership

Since the time I wrote SACRED ANATOMY 25 years ago, much has changrd in the area of relationships between men and women.  For example, the “war between the sexes” has transformed into a partnering paradigm as women have taken back their power and arisen to assume their rightful place as equals in co-creation alongside men — and men have rediscovered their nurturing feminine side. Actually, that transformation was already underway when I was writing my book.  Here’s an excerpt from the chapter entitled “Sacred Sex.”

From Patriarchy to Partnership                  

  HUMAN CIVILIZTION today is dominated by the masculine energy of achieving, characterized as Martian by John Gray in his best-selling books on the theme of men being “from Mars” and women “from Venus.”  Our health care system, for example, has been based on fixing what is broken through manipulation of the laws of physics and chemistry on the physical plane by physicians and chemists. This differs from the more feminine role of facilitating the healing process, a spiritual or vibrational process, the nurturing approach of the healer who sees disease as a process to be assisted toward completion rather than aborted by intervention, only to surface again and again until it can complete itself—often in what is called “terminal illness” and ultimately in death. 

The masculine in us generally wants the results of its efforts now. The feminine, on the other hand, is more accustomed to waiting patiently for the cycles of creation to work through and unfold in their natural seasons.  In a word, the masculine in us is more concerned with setting the agenda and promoting it so as to obtain the results it needs in order to feel “successful” and “productive,”  while the feminine is more concerned with processing feelings and thoughts that form the subconscious terrain which  resources the ultimate fruition of the creation in progress.  She is concerned, as we saw earlier, in making a home for being and family, and in creating a safe space for love to be shared in all its many facets and experiences.  In healing, she knows how to empower the person to take charge of his/her healing process and participate in it fully.  The wise masculine honors her natural capabilities in these areas. 

In my office, the “doctor” has given way to the healer, who is the authentic Self.  He no longer prides himself in having an answer for every ill brought to him, nor thinks of himself as inadequate for not having one to give on the spot.  This transformation has introduced a bit of confusion among some patients who, understandably, expect precisely that kind of traditional “fix-me” passive care.  I have found that when I start out with “I don’t rightly know,” and say it audibly so that the patient can hear it, the innate wisdom of the patient’s body begins speaking with me. This kind of communication with the innate intelligence of the body-temple is at a vibrational level and is, for me, an experience of direct conversation with Source. What I do know, and share with the patient, is that as we both hold the dis-ease process in a nurturing atmosphere, one that is void of fears and impatience but filled with unconditional love, absolute assurance and complete acceptance, the right things to say and to do come to us in the quiet, unconcerned and worry-free atmosphere of spirit. “Be still and know” is Mother Nature’s guiding principle.  

In a refreshing way, the Martian masculine, who is good at fixing things, is giving space to the Venusian feminine who seeks to rejoin the parts that have become disconnected, knowing that the currents of life, once again flowing through and between the parts, will bring about health in them—and, by reason of their vibrational alignment, will bring wholeness in the body-mind-spirit.  The person is made whole once the misaligned and disconnected parts are re-joined to one another, and that is the role of the feminine, the home and family builder.

The parts that need to be healed the most are the inner and outer aspects of the person, one’s spirit with one’s form. It is the healing of this fracture at the very core of one’s being that brings forth the healing current, what I have also referred to as the “attunement current,” from within with full force and penetration in the body tissues and organs. This constitutes the core essence of the attunement service Uranda brought through his ministry.

Speaking of attunement, those who work in the field of subtle energies find themselves in the presence of the Divine Feminine out of which the healing current arises. Working with spirit-substance for any period of time at all, one finds one’s masculine and feminine energies naturally and easily coming into balance with one another. 

A colleague, friend and master practitioner-teacher in the attunement field, Paul Price, demonstrates such a balance in his healing ministry. Paul has worked in the attunement field for thirty-five years. He has an attunement center up in King City, Ontario, in a pastoral setting as part of a small farm, spiritual community and retreat center called “King View,” where he also offers classes in Attunement.  In a recent article Paul writes of his experience working with cancer patients over the past twenty years and some of the factors he has seen consistently arising in their consciousness. He writes:

    Almost without exception, when I begin to work with clients and friends who have cancer, they ask, “What have I done wrong?” I also find that people who are on a spiritual path often express a sense of guilt and shame with respect to why they have cancer. There are many theories surrounding causes for cancer and I have looked into a number of them.  In some situations, they seem to fit. But I personally feel that there are complexities here in the larger energetic, or vibrational, field.

I have worked with children and young people who have had the perfect diet since birth, lived in a home where meditation and spiritual awareness were present from Day One, and a malignant melanoma appears.  I have worked with individuals who have lived an amazing spiritual life, and cancer seemingly beats them.  I have worked with others who could care less about anybody but themselves, and miracles have occurred for them. I have stopped trying to figure this out.

From an Attunement practitioner’s standpoint, it is important that we work in a complementary way with our clients, marrying our talents with traditional and other natural modalities.  I endeavor to nurture a sense of joy and passion for living in those I work with, reminding them that their spirit does not have cancer, and that no matter what modality they use, it is this joy and appreciation for life that allows their internal body chemistry to participate more fully in the healing process.

In this way I encourage them to participate in their own healing, challenging the attitude of relying solely on external factors.  Cancer, like all other diseases, is part of a larger vibrational pattern which we all need to work with. In order to work creatively with cancer, we as practitioners have to come to a place that doesn’t see “that person over there with cancer” and “I’m safe over here.”  It is a collective vibrational pattern which we all work with.  And although I am presently blessed with cancer not manifest in form in my body, it is in fact in the larger body of which I am a part.  My creative work with the fears and foibles surrounding this allows me to work from a clearer vibrational stance in my Attunement care.

Only as we all work together creatively with this will we actually begin to alter the vibration to a point where cancer can no longer exist. These days I do see more remission occurring, but still not what I would call a lot of miraculous changes.  I think those of us who work with these more intense situations need to know within our own hearts that we make a difference.  We often feel a sense of failure when the outcome in a situation is the passing away of the form.

I feel it is important that we not continue to add to the vibration of failure when, in fact, we have played a creative part in changing the vibration to a point where miracles actually do occur.  These miracles are a result of individuals holding sacred the work they have done in themselves, regardless of the seeming outcome.  If we can inspire in ourselves, and then in others, a sense of freedom in circumstance, rather than bondage to circumstance, we are contributing toward true healing. (Attunement Guild Newsletter, April 2004)

Paul’s words strike a resonant chord within the heart where these matters of spirit are understood at deeper levels.  The mind, by giving up its vain attempts to understand disease and figure things out, makes space available for the heart to have her own thoughts, the intuitive thoughts of spirit, to speak her truth and to articulate finer essences—along with encompassing the person while focusing the healing currents of love and compassion.  By honoring the feminine in healthcare, we take on the authentic role of a healer more fully. 

Paul’s comments are addressed with his colleagues in the Attunement field in mind, but they apply to all of us physicians and practitioners of the healing arts, who work with peoples’ lives in our care for their bodies, and there is no way to avoid it.  Their bodies are inhabited by people, angels all, who come to us for assistance in healing their fractures—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  They are looking for much more than a quick fix for their pain, although they want that too.  Chronic pain takes its toll on the human nervous system.  While we’re helping relieve their pains with our masculine technology of science, we can lead them in the path of healing with our feminine technology of love, compassion and understanding.

This is the role of the feminine in us, and she is rising to take back her power and play that role alongside her masculine partner.  She does not want to take over his job, or to replace him.  “Alternative” healthcare is perhaps a misnomer in that the word itself implies “instead of.” The words “complementary” and “integrative” are perhaps more accurate—although there are many instances where natural healing modalities are being used instead of drugs and surgery. 

The point I wish to focus here is that both can work together in the same arena without either the “fixer,” on the one hand, feeling threatened, or the “healer,” on the other, feeling she is more, or less, important. These two are already working together beautifully in many clinics and hospitals throughout America, as well as abroad. Alternative health care is coming into its own, and in many cases replacing some of the tools and methods of traditional medicine—and that is how it should work out in a society on the move toward real progress and growth.

I can envision a future where we live in a state of health rather than dis-ease, where our bodies do not break down and need fixing. The “fixer,” while still present and available for crisis intervention—and there is going to be a lot of that needed for quite some time—is being invited by life itself, the sheer power of spirit finding expression through fierce passion, to play a partnership role with the emerging feminine. She is not asking him to change what he is or what he does.  She is merely asking him to move over a bit and give her equal space alongside him to bring her gifts of healing—and they are many. 

As I indicated, this is occurring throughout the Western world presently as alternative healthcare takes its place alongside mainstream medicine.  The unhealed human masculine, which is a substitute for the Divine Masculine, is decreasing in force and authority as the authentic Self in healthcare practitioners, both male and female, is emerging from within to take charge of stewarding the healing process, a service sorely needed in today’s world of radical and invasive drug-based disease management practices.

In my next post I will consider further the role of the Divine Feminine and the quality of being “sensitive” to the finer vibrational frequencies of the feminine energies. Blessings of peace and joy to you on this beautiful Easter weekend.
