Once upon a time, before the patriarchal society, there were the High Priestesses. Women. Viewed as Goddesses and not only were valued, but were worshiped. The Woman, a direct connection to the moon was known to be sacred. Her cycles; a physical manifestation of the moon cycles, the ocean tides...were thought to be nothing short of magic. This time that she goes through was celebrated every month, not hidden or shamed. The embodiment of Earth Mother, she brings life into the world. Wild, free, unapologetic. The Sanskrit word, "Yoni," represents the womb, vagina, uterus. It literally translates to "sacred space."
How have we drifted so far from this?
The priestesses were wild. Celebrated for their sexuality. Years after this time fear took over in the hearts of men. The women were stoned, burned, shamed for their feminine powers and called witches. Generation after generation suppressed and conditioned to hide their free nature. To feel embarrassed about their bodies. To blend in and fit the mold of a new image. Tame, quiet, obedient, submissive, powerless.
I am starting to feel a shift. Women are waking up. I am waking up. Men are waking up too. To my sisters, you have the right reclaim your power. Connect back to your High Priestess. To my brothers, you have the right to reclaim your power. Which is not misogynistic in nature.. your masculinity is just as divine. We all have the solar and lunar within us. Embrace both the masculine and feminine and come back to balance. Fear is the creator of all suffering. Let's practice coming back to love. Love every inch. Celebrate one another and nurture the Divine Feminine in all beings. We are ALL sacred.
