A New Dawn: The Divine Feminine
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
~John Lenon

After witnessing the extraordinary display of passion and purpose around the globe for womenkind and our rights–really for all human rights, announcing our strength to the new (you’ll excuse the expression) President, I thought I would offer up some writing –an excerpt I wrote last year from my upcoming Harper Collins release, Waking Energy …. because all of Waking Energy is about the energy of love.

And when you come from love, anything is possible …

I feel like singing Imagine right now. Though we have started to wake up in fundamental ways, we have a long way to go. The utter insanity of humanity and the destruction and violence we have wreaked against nature, one another, our wild life, and our natural world provokes rage inside me, and brings me to tears. Our continued unconscious actions threaten life on this planet. We have arrived at a place where the wounds of this conflict are a reflection of our individual and collective disconnection from the very source of all life.

We are being called into an era of conscious evolution, to collectively heal the discord and disharmony and to reconnect to ourselves and each other, to actively participate in creating a new earth, centered in the awareness of our inherent oneness— to finally acknowledge that we are connected with all that is.

Oracle and insight, wisdom, intuition, love, the Divine Feminine is the force of love and unity that flows within our individual and collective psyche, male and female alike.
In early history, people of the earth revered the Goddess. They celebrated a heart centered and vibrant connection to nature and their bodies, enjoying rich creativity and a pouring forth of light and love. Even during the Dark Ages, the ancient wisdom traditions, from Tantra to Taoism rejected formal, puritanical missives, always opening new doors, inviting women to share their expansive knowledge, often deferring to them, studying under their tutelage, and above all, honoring them for their intuition, insight and strengths. Recognizing themselves in one another, with the Taiji, female and male co-creative energies of the universe, responsible for all life—the yin-yang balance an ever-presence in their consciousness and the way they lived their lives, they made no class distinctions between their own male and female aspects. Seeing them as separate parts of a greater whole, they sought to abolish derisive differences, and instead embraced their mutual gifts, profiting in ways their Western counterparts could never imagine.
