At this place in our conscious evolution, (ascension, self-actualization) one of our critical tasks is to set down what has been “unholy” and unbalanced within us, specifically, the unholy masculine (fear, power and control) and the unholy feminine (victimhood, weakness, helplessness, co-dependency). As we relinquish the unholy, the holy aspects of ourselves have an opportunity to emerge from within and take root in us. For women, perhaps the most challenging part of this journey is discovering the holy masculine within us (and not confusing it with the unholy masculine) and allowing it to be lived through us. In this, we can take some lessons from (healthy) men:
In women, the embodiment of the Divine Masculine is about understanding our worth.
It is about standing up for ourselves and not only insisting, but expecting, even assuming that our needs will be met.
It is about knowing that the work we do in the world has value and expecting, insisting on appropriate compensation for our contribution to the world – whether it be as wife, mother, employer, employee, artist or business owner.
Embodying the Divine Masculine is about having our own backs – setting boundaries where appropriate, naming and claiming our needs, making sure they are getting met and NEVER having to apologize for doing what is right for ourselves.
Embodying the Divine Masculine is about NEVER having to make accommodations that our male brethren would never think of making for another – so much so that others would never even think to ask.
Embodying the Divine Masculine is about never questioning the fact that our needs come first and never even thinking to ask – we simply do it.
Embodying the Divine Masculine is about loving ourselves – knowing our greatness and never settling for less than what we deserve.
