The role of women has been greatly suppressed and undermined.
As a consequence, we have forgotten and been denied the sacred power of the divine feminine.
As a woman growing up here in Ireland I was taught that God was male and women were subservient at all times to the male.
The role of the feminine was diminished at all levels of society.
I recall my mother having to endure a ceremony called, “being churched,” after childbirth.
The RC church regarded my mother and all like her as being “dirty,” following childbirth and that only a male priest could cleanse her and make her fit for the world in which she lived.
Mother was not allowed to attend church until this ceremony had been conducted.
Imagine a world where giving birth to a sacred human being made one unclean in the eyes of God?
Without the divine feminine in our lives, we impoverish ourselves of the sacred meaning and divine purpose of being alive.
Without the divine feminine in our lives we lose our ability to heal, understand, nourish and empower ourselves and our world.
We allow the ignorance of patriarchy to diminish what we know to be sacred and special.
Without the understanding of the divine feminine we submit to chaos and fear.
The Earth and her inhabitants have had enough of chaos and fear…
