Women are amazing.
(I type these words with a baby girl kicking around in my swollen belly, weeks away from giving birth to my daughter.)
We are the gatekeepers to this world. Within us lies the power of the generations, of life and of evolution. Ancient wisdom passes down to us the powerful statement, “As Above, So Below.” How could it be that the feminine plays such an impressive role in the success of the physical world, yet we are raised in our modern society to believe that she has no place in spirituality?
The difference I admired most was their belief that God could be a woman. I devoured the stories of powerful females like Isis, Athena and Diana. They were women like me. My religion had taught me that women who seek out knowledge are evil, destructive and something to fear.
I felt my mind and passionate spirit was an asset - yet I had been taught it was a sin.
Yet drawn beautifully on the walls of burial chambers, and sculpted into slabs of marble – were reminders that humanity was once very different. There had been a time when women were not only respected for their strength and intelligence, but these qualities had been deemed worthy of worship.
As I grew into adulthood, my academic study of the Goddess developed into a personal spiritual relationship with Her. I have embraced the role of Priestess and dedicated myself to the task of sharing the Sacred Feminine to a new generation. I have been working on a few books, and several friends have curiously asked what I was writing about. When I replied “the Sacred Feminine” – I almost always got a blank stare followed by awkward silence.
That's when I realized just how successfully the Goddess has been suppressed, even in this modern age of feminism and equal rights.
It is because of this that I feel called to begin teaching others about the Goddess as well as Sacred Feminism. For those of you who are interested in learning more, I encourage you to follow my blog over the next few months. I will be publishing a series of posts on Sacred Feminism, the Goddess and awakening your spiritual connection to Her. I am also hard at work putting together my first online Workshop for those of you who want to dive a little deeper. This subject is such a great passion of mine and I can't wait to share it with all of you!
