I am stepping into my Sacred Feminine.
This week, I was called to create a new Mala for myself. My former one was comprised of Sandalwood, bookended in equal parts of Moonstone and Sunstone. A beautiful balance of Yin and Yang energy. But in the light of this new way of being, I felt it time to focus more on the Yin.
I've always been a provider. A do-er. For the majority of my adult life, I worked 2-3 jobs at a time, doing what I needed to maintain my independence and then, in later years, provide for my family. I am certainly more comfortable in my Yang energy.
The transition brought on by COVID-19 has called me to settle into the Yin, the sacred feminine energy that exists in each of us. To explore her, to get comfortable, to lean in and let go, trusting that I will be provided for. And, while it is taking me out of my comfort zone, I am also excited by the opportunity and possibility that exists here.
I am looking forward to home schooling my son and finding adventure in the everyday. I am excited to play in the kitchen, and feel the leisure and enjoyment of it. I am feeling so inspired by potential projects and new ways of conducting my business. I'm anticipating tapping further into my inner nurturer and deeper into the true essence of me.
I've created this Moonstone Mala, knowing it will call forth my inner Goddess. It will assist me in releasing into the flow of the days ahead, allowing me to shrug off the fear that seems so eager to infiltrate my mind. It will inspire a new level of creativity and open my mind to the infinite possibilities that lie ahead.
I'd like to offer this snippet from a recent offering of the Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers:
“As you move through these changing times… be easy on yourself and be easy on one another. You are at the beginning of something new. You are learning a new way of being. You will find that you are working less in the yang modes that you are used to.
You will stop working so hard at getting from point A to point B the way you have in the past, but instead, will spend more time experiencing yourself in the whole, and your place in it.
Instead of traveling to a goal out there, you will voyage deeper into yourself. Your mother’s grandmother knew how to do this. Your ancestors from long ago knew how to do this. They knew the power of the feminine principle… and because you carry their DNA in your body, this wisdom and this way of being is within you.
Call on it. Call it up. Invite your ancestors in. As the yang based habits and the decaying institutions on our planet begin to crumble, look up. A breeze is stirring. Feel the sun on your wings.”
