How do you measure the ‘outcomes’ of a family Sunday Roast? Is the nurturing, the connection, the security, the nutrition, the laughter, the sharing, mattering to someone, warmth, joy etc. able to be graphed or analysed? I am not sure!!!
I am putting together a “Goddess Within” workshop for my next trip to Japan, in response to the massive suppression of the Divine Feminine evident in the women we worked with over there. They are crying to be supported to open to who they really are!!
As I was writing the outline for the workshop a new topic came through and Spirit asked me to share this with everyone today, accompanied with a powerful healing activation (see below) on this Full Moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is a lot to do with the mystery, the hidden, particularly around the feminine so it all makes sense! I could feel the Lunar energies supporting us with this journey.
It is nice timing for Mother’s Day too!!
The ‘Results’ of Patriarchy
I have written and shared much though my teachings, on our patriarchal era. The result of this is a culture that is obsessed with productivity (glorified busyness!), results, outcomes, goals, the visible (i.e. perfect appearances), material possessions as signs of success.
The essence of the human masculine energy is the Hunter. They have a goal in mind and set forth with all their focus to make it happen. There is a visible result and an active process throughout.
The industrial revolution has morphed this energy into a more evolved counterpart but in it’s essence is the same. It’s all about productivity, stuff, & results that make up success. Compete or die!
Even in families, a mother’s success is judged on how successful her children are, not how much they are their true self and follow their heart and have inner peace and happiness. I declare that it is time to redefine success!!
Because there is no balance of the feminine, we are seeing disastrous results within the world, with our environment reflecting the impact of these energies as we rape our Mother Earth. People are experiencing higher levels of stress, anxiety, depression & suicide than ever before. There is no feminine to balance with the being, the inner world, the surrender, the emotions, the intuition, the receiving and so much more.
Because these things are not obviously measurable, is anyone counting the cost of the lost feminine?
Are you happy BEING you?
In my practice I see many women struggling to be valued and forcing themselves into ‘careers & businesses’ trying to fit into the current paradigm of success. I see so many women spending thousands on success coaches, trying to define themselves into an active career, and these are usually short-lived endeavours. They are listening to the outside voices and trying to fit into a construct, rather than connecting with who they are.
On the other side, I see SAHM’s (Stay at Home Mums) and housewives who say “I am just a mum” or “I am just a housewife” and don’t feel like they are contributing much to the world at all. They will often say this aloud to be but I can sense it in their vibration too!! People have a core fear of being useless and unproductive in our culture.
I am not advocating that women are not meant to work. I am advocating that you follow your heart and your authentic expression. Does your work feed your soul? Are you connected and flowing with who you really are? Or are you doing it for worth, recognition and value?
A good exercise:
A great way to get the answer is to imagine yourself stopping your work and seeing if you feel worthy and divine from within, simply for BEING you. This will show you the truth. I know for sure that I got my worth from working and I had to stop to reclaim who I really was. These days, I am ready and willing to let go of my ‘work’ whenever I feel called, as it doesn’t define me!!! I love myself for who I am. This has given me the feeling of freedom and loving life!
One of the biggest questions that is asked on the spiritual journey is “What is my purpose?” Remember your purpose is always to BE YOU. It is a BEING, not a DOING. Each soul has unique vibrations to bring forward through BEING themselves and if there are any actions, they will flow from that.
4 Lost Gifts of the Divine Feminine
Spirit has shown me 4 key aspects of the feminine energies that have been hidden as a result of the quest for ‘success’. They are ready to be embodied and valued for their important place in the balance of L.I.F.E.
Feminism taught us to value feminine empowerment from a more outward perspective (and we have got be careful we don’t move into the masculine there!) I feel that these gifts are the softer side of the feminine that have been missed!
There are so many examples I can share of how they can play out in your life, but I will try to keep it brief!
1. The Gatherer – the feminine in her essence doesn’t go out and make things happen and accumulate, she magnetizes and gathers to her what she needs! She brings community and circles of people together for a common cause to connect, share and collaborate.
When I was young, we would all gather at my Nan’s house for Sunday Roast. These are treasured memories and anchored a feeling of security, nourishment and support in me that is priceless.
Women’s circles are the TOP enquiry I get on my email list because women are CRAVING to gather once more. But spending time connecting with other people just sitting, connecting and sharing with no goal in mind is considered a lower priority these days!!
I feel that this is changing though with websites like Facebook groups, www.nabo.com.au, and community gardens. Everyone is realising the benefit that community brings. The feminine needs to step up right now and embrace the Gatherer.
2. The Space Holder – Creating a home, workspaces and community spaces and other spaces that feel safe, nurturing and loving is incredibly undervalued these days. Many homemakers I have worked with over the years (including myself when I stopped my corporate job) are constantly searching for other activities to feel they are contributing to the world. It is time to value what you contribute!!!
Having a safe, clean and welcoming space is proven to help people, particularly families and children. I feel like we have gone backward in this regards as this used to be something that was more valued in our history! Perhaps feminism had something to do with this!
It is time to and also remembers the ancient wisdom within you to bring a higher vibration to your spaces. (I feel that Feng Shui, Space Clearing, Colour Therapy etc. in spaces are all part of their reemergence).
3. The Nurturer/Supporter – this week rather than focusing on my work, I have listened to the call of my heart. I have supported a friend going through a challenging time, visited a friend in hospital and generally spent time connecting with people rather than being on my computer. I have also been lucky to have 2 different quilting groups come together this week!
I could palpably see and feel the impact of those connections and the flow on effect as each person took that loving energy into their lives.
In the Human experience, it all comes down to oxytocin. Oxytocin is a hormone that pumped into our bodies when we experience love. It promotes bonding, trust and attachment. It is most commonly known to flow with the bonding between mother and baby after childbirth.
In this article on Wake Up World linking low levels of Oxytocin to addiction, it says:
“Conversely levels of this chemical are diminished by isolation or loneliness, anxiety, depression, and chronic stress. When we are deficient in oxytocin, we are likely to have raised levels of the damaging stress hormone cortisol which, as well as negatively affecting our health, adds to the feeling of anxiety, disconnection and despondence.” Perhaps this is a way we can measure the impact of nurturing!!
One of the key issues I find with people is that they do not feel supported. Lower back problems can be a sign of this.
4. The Wisdom Keeper – each family and community has many stories. Indigenous cultures throughout the world teach the younger generation through story whereas many of our fairytales perpetuate the patriarchy, (e.g. Prince Charming) When I was a child, my Nan used to tell me so many stories about the family and it’s history and all the different relationships, connections and skeletons in the closet. This helps to give you a context, connection and foundation and also expands your awareness and acceptance of others. It prepares you for life.
All ancient and indigenous cultures connected with & honoured their ancestors!! Someone is the family needs to be the Keeper!

- How did your womb feel?
- Which lost gifts did you discover?
- Were you aware of them? Have they been trying to get your attention?
I would love for you to write to me and share at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is time that someone gives women (and the feminine within men) permission to use your less ‘visible’ feminine gifts, to express these gifts above and live them as your soul expression. You don’t have to create a career out of them!
Simply BE them.
I GIVE YOU THAT PERMISSION TODAY!!
