Women know the cycle of death and rebirth. This is what the masculine originally found threatening and so the wise feminine removed from its community became silenced, it went underground! Witches burned whether men or women. The voice of femininity lay dormant held within the crevices and shadows of the earth. Not daring to speak too soon lest it be called a fool, lest it be dominated and ridiculed. Lest its tongue be cut out!
The authentic femnine voice/medicine went underground, afraid that the medicine would be harmed further, it has laid dormant and unheard until now in preparation for these changing times, it begins to emerge. Woman will return to their essence and their soul and awaken and speak out, without fear of suffocation and silencing
The death and birth cycle remains strong in women through their menses and child-birthing (whether they have birthed babies or not) We ‘re-member’ our mothers and grandmothers stories in our bodies.
We know the process of the journey to go inwards – into our womb space and the deep surrender that then has to unfold, where we cannot resist nature and her calling, we know the deep pain and primal scream that reminds us of our deepest and most vulnerable state. The child will be born through us and we will then have to let go of that part of ourselves and witness the innocence take form, supporting it to grow up in the world. Allowing it to rise as a new existence on the earth.
As the masculine matrix becomes more and more fractured and falls apart, the feminine circle will hold that energy taking it back down to the depths where the internal fire lies within the center of the earth. Here it will be consumed and given new life, like the phoenix rising. The feminine, taking this life will nurture it and bring it into its circle connecting all that is spiritual and embodied, thus bringing together the yin and yang, the masculine & feminine in order to create wholeness between each other.
The dance of life will continue held by circles of feminine wisdom that has been carried through the ages and delivered to us through mediums of the modern world.
Many of us have been meditating and finding new ways to tap into the art of dreaming ourselves awake. Our everyday masculine energy (whether we are men or women) will release its tension through mediums that little was known about before. Now we start to question how we might take this a step further and tap into a deeper connection to our own soul and the soul of our communities and the planet. This means re-examining our lives and our own histories.
The feminine wisdom that has largely been denied will seduce us into her arms and hold us while we explore the mystery that we are. There is no knowing what we may find there, but for sure we will need to fall apart and find ourselves in our own darkness, amidst our own shadows. If we can trust the circle of the feminine ways, we will find the gateway into a deeper understanding of what it means to live in these times.
Emerging with values and ideals now discovered to begin a new dream for society, we will be able to tap into our own resourcefulness and remember how to survive by using our instincts our imagination and our intuition.
These are the gifts that we will receive once we can surrender fully and let go of what has become too familiar.
Dear Caroline, thank you for these powerful, poetic words. It resonates so deeply with the menstrual work I am doing with woman and feels very aligned with my hearts calling. Good to know you are out there doing your thing!
Thank you Sjanie, powerful times for the feminine voice I feel, love to you
This sentence of yours feels to me the real key “we will need to fall apart and find ourselves in our own darkness” , that holds it all for me. Thank you it’s bold, prescient writing.
Thank you Alexandra it feels really valuable to be understood in my writing and what I am saying, I feel we know these things on a soul and gut level, not always easy to express it
well said, thank you.
