The Divine Feminine has been a huge part of my journey, and I have been called to write a series of blog posts about my experience, as many more people are finding themselves called to this path now. If you have found this post, then this is probably for you. There are no coincidences, so please read on, and take what resonates. If some of this makes sense for you, you may like to check out my events and services, including my free monthly Crystal Wellbeing Meditation. You may also like to bookmark this page. As you read on, my best advice is to feel the energy of the words here – trying to process them logically may fry your brain! Feel them, and you will feel the truth that resonates with you and your soul’s experience.
For the last 14 years I have been healing my own inner Divine Feminine energy. It started with counselling and more “normal” ways of healing, before becoming a full-on spiritual experience. This healing journey is not for the faint of heart, but it is highly rewarding. For those on this path, please know, you are a Spiritual Warrior! Divine Feminine energy, for me, is not about flowing skirts and being all “love and light”. It can be, sometimes, but more often, it is about hard work, determination, truth, integrity and finding an inner power and strength you had no idea you had. THAT is what we came here for. Everything I share is my own experience, and I use that experience to support others on their journeys.
Over the years, I have seen “patterns” in wounding – Divine Feminine energy people (not always female) tend to carry similar wounding, which manifest in their current lifetime. These issues often stem from past lifetime issues and inner child trauma. These wounds play out, over and over, until we stop them. This blog post will focus on one of those wounds.
One common and fundamental wound is related to our intuition. Intuition is a Divine Feminine gift. Developing this gift is our path to wholeness. However, when we have wounding around our intuition, we block it – perhaps even unconsciously – and we mistrust it. In order to feel content in our lives, we need to be whole, which means the healing of such wounds is vital for our happiness and well-being.
Intuition is connected to our Third Eye, and both allow us to access our Divine Feminine wisdom. At some point, most Divine Feminine energy souls either block their own Third Eye, or someone else does it for them. Let’s look at why that happens – because understanding that alone, can start to unblock things.
Why Divine Feminine energy has been suppressed
Most often Divine Feminine energy has been suppressed or blocked through misunderstanding. Where there is misunderstanding, fear usually follows.
Some people did not understand how Divine Feminines could “just know” things. They feared the wisdom that seemed to be accessed from nowhere. They did not understand us, it did not make “logical” sense, and so they shunned, punished, ostracised, you name it. As a result, Divine Feminines suffered rejection and abandonment for simply being ourselves.
Some Divine Feminines decided it was safer to shut down our energy, to ensure that we were accepted by society. We hid our true nature, to have the security of the clan – people often needed their tribe or community as a matter of life or death. Even though our wisdom would have been beneficial for everyone, we mistakenly believed that it was better to suppress it for our protection.
This kind of mistaken thinking compounded over time, passed down through generations, suppressing and blocking other Divine Feminine traits as well. That will be the topic for future blog posts.
Being “Socially Acceptable”
There has been a lot of shame around Divine Feminine energy. We were made to feel “bad”, “evil”, “ill”, “wrong” – I am sure you have heard of witch trials, people being put into psychiatric care for being “crazy”, or simply being criticised for being “too sensitive”. We have absorbed those false beliefs about ourselves, so that they have become unconscious – we may not remember, but it is still there in our energy, dominating our behaviour and the reality we live in. These kinds of false beliefs are the very reason we can struggle to accept, embrace and trust our Divine Feminine gifts. We have been conditioned to avoid using our gift, so that we can be a “good” person. This kind of pretence takes a lot of energy to maintain. It is exhausting to be so inauthentic!
Where it was not possible to hide our Divine Feminine energy, we were forced to use it in unhealthy and unhelpful ways. We may have used our gift for “dark” purposes – as a way of fitting in, to keep ourselves safe and to be accepted. Those who were power hungry wanted to manipulate Divine Feminine energy to further their own cause – they distorted it, abused it, controlled it, to suit their agenda. Many were jealous of those with Divine Feminine energy. We may have had to be subservient to these people, in order to stay out of “trouble”. It literally was fight for survival.
All of this has taught us to unconsciously associate our innate gift, our natural way of being, and our Divine birth right, with things like:
It is ridiculously common to begin your spiritual journey, to start to work with your gifts, only to be confronted with rising fear. This is actually our sign to show we are in fact on the RIGHT path. It is our responsibility to heal ourselves of each “layer” of fear as it comes up. And to continue on our Divine path. Indeed, this is what we came here to do. Our Divine Feminine energy is needed right now, this will heal the planet.
Things are different now. The old fear and power structures that once dominated this planet have been crumbling for a long time, and will indeed come crashing down. As we each do our own healing work, we heal on behalf of Mother Earth and all her inhabitants. We are fully supported in our healing work, and while it may feel scary, there really is nothing to fear now.
It absolutely is 100% possible to heal and clear those blocks, and for you to free yourself from misunderstandings of the past. Your efforts are needed and appreciated. Thank you for being here.
