The fall of the patriarchy isn't about women rising up and overturning men, it is about the patriarchal programming that runs deep within all of us. It affects us all and keeps us all stuck in deep suffering, pain and separation (men included). It is suppression, isolation, hierarchy, abuse, and so much more.
Having an insight about who you are, your past, your current situation, past lives, the world around you, etc, is not the work. It is most definitely an important step, yes, even an essential one. But many stop here, thinking the work is done. And this is a shadow side of light work.
I just came across this as a sponsored post in my newsfeed and I just want to call BULLSHIT.
I synchronistically just started a book on spiritual discernment yesterday and the author talks about the dark underbelly of spirituality in the West (and everywhere), where it has become popular to be spiritual, increasing the Big Business potential as well as abuse, manipulation, bypassing, and lots of other shittie ways to distort spirituality. Some (or many) of us go through this kind of distortion and in order to dive deep into our shadows and uproot things that may have been overlooked on a less challenging path. However, discernment is a key tool in a spiritual path.
A glimmer in her eyes
A knowing in her being
The presence of the Queen Mother
Brings the gift of seeing
...until she couldn't anymore
And contrary to popular belief
This wasn't a step backwards
But a victory
Yesterday we were invited to Canada's Wonderland for a sweet friend's birthday party!
While very excited, I was also a bit uneasy.
My 6 yo has a hard time in crowds. Most trips we have been on that involve big crowds have not ended up being fun. Usually, and pretty immediately, his cheeks will get flushed, his eyes dilate, he gets spacey and often very (illogically) emotional. Meltdown central.
Lately I have been been questioning whether I "have what it takes to be an entrepreneur and run my own business".
I have no doubt in my mind that I am here to serve, hold space for healing and remembrance, to share my immense knowledge and wisdom and tools that I have learned, experienced and gathered over the last 10 years + lifetimes before.
I also have no doubt in my mind that the voice running through my head is not ME, but fear. Oh sweet fucking fear that thinks it is keeping me safe, but in reality it debilitates me.
