“The female being has been chosen by the creator to be the portal between the spiritual realm and this physical realm. The only force on earth powerful enough to navigate unborn spirits onto this planet. So tell me, why do we not treat her as such?”
That portal is the yoni.
The Yoni Yantra or triangle, the sign of the vulva, was known as the Primordial Image, representing the Great Mother as source of all life. This is the feminine principle, the activating power and energy.
This symbol has spanned across many ancient cultures, from the Egyptian hieroglyphics to the Greek alphabet where the delta stood for the Holy Door, vulva of the Greek Goddess Demeter also known as “Mother Delta”.
You are a representation of the great mother, the source of all life.
What this means is that you have infinite power in your ability to create, to birth, to give life.
Whether or not you want to or are physically able to give birth to another human being, doesn’t matter. You have magic inside your yoni and womb space. It’s your shakti, your life force, your empowerment.
Your female form, your body, is your access to being a conscious woman. It’s in the part of you that has been shamed the most.
You have the holy grail within you. You have all the power. You can create anything YOU want, not what our culture tells you is the good and right thing.
But we have been cut off from this source of power.
For centuries, women have been carrying oppression, denial, shame and judgment this part of their bodies.
You were not taught how to love, cherish, honor and revere this part of yourself. You were taught to disconnect from its power and to see it as a burden to keep you small and feeling insignificant.
LiYana Silver, in her book Feminine Genius, shares the nauseating statistics of what has happened as a result from women disconnected from their power source.
Although women make up 51 percent of the population, we hold only about 11 percent of decision-making and policy-setting positions in media, government, and education.
Eighty-one percent of ten-year-olds worry about becoming too fat.
A woman is 70 percent more likely than a man to experience depression during her lifetime.
One in four women takes antidepressants, and women use anti anxiety medications at almost twice the rate of men.
Sixty-five percent of American women have an eating disorder.
Ninety-seven percent of women admit to having at least one “I hate my body” moment each day, although for most it’s thirty-five, fifty, or even one hundred; which means that for every waking hour, the average woman will hurl between one and eight cruel insults at herself.
During her lifetime, one in three women will experience sexual or physical abuse.
One in five women will be raped.
One in four girls will be sexually abused before the age of eighteen.
There are 220 words for a sexually promiscuous woman but only twenty for a sexually promiscuous man.
Globally, there are an estimated 4.5 million people trapped in forced sexual exploitation.
Twenty-six percent of women between ages eighteen and twenty-four have been stalked online, and another 25 percent have been the target of online sexual harassment.
31% of all births in the US are Cesarean.
Up to 40% of women say they have trouble orgasming.
The wounding has been passed down from womb to womb, perpetuated by more violence.
We have been taught that there is something wrong with us – something inherently wrong with our bodies – and that our yonis are dirty and disgusting – we lose touch with our most vital life force.
When we get caught in the trap of proving ourselves, doing too much, overexerting ourselves to keep up – we lose touch with our most vital life force.
We’ve disconnected from the cycles and rhythms of being a woman.
We’ve disconnected from our inherent self-worth.
So we work when we should be resting. We get overwhelmed. We burn out.
Then we numb ourselves with food and intoxicants to not feel the heavy weight of that disconnection.
We cover ourselves and hide. We dim and shrink.
We don’t want to bring too much attention to ourselves by being too vibrant and sexy as it will attract unwanted attention.
We tame our wildness, we cage ourselves.
And we chop ourselves off at the knees from standing too tall, too much in the light — before someone can criticize, ostracize or minimize our existence.
The demands of modern Patriarchy have us believing that we need to be super women, and that our energy must be high and steady all the time. We are expected to do, do, do all the time. Essentially, to glorify the masculine and deny our feminine.
It is time for us to shift these beliefs, to heal these intergenerational wounds, and reclaim our feminine power.
You carry the keys to LIBERATION for yourself AND for the next seven generations. And once WE ALL become conscious to this power, once we awaken this energy, this fire, that lies dormant in so many women, we will create a whole new world.
This is why you stepping into your feminine leadership and holding circle for women is mission critical.
So we need to unlock this power by identifying what has been holding us back, keeping us grey instead of vibrant.
We need to unleash our ecstatic joy and dance in our pleasure.
Can you feel that desire rising up in your belly?
Can you hear her whispering your name, beckoning you to come alive?
Now is the time.
