The Divine Feminine: Why Is It So Important To Explore Now?
The process of exploring the Divine Feminine begins by examining the multifaceted archetype energies that inspire us, and to identify our unique personal expression and influence that each archetype has on our beings.
Although there are many archetypes, I focus on six that seem to represent the strongest impact on our psycho-spiritual evolution. As you acknowledge the characteristics of the archetypes, you can identify where you embody these same characteristics. And, as you strengthen the awareness of what is already there, these characteristics will begin to emerge in your awareness, behavior and ability.
The Goddess is the archetype that provides transcendent experience, a re-connecting with source, and nurturing of divine essence. The Goddess embodies the deep inspirational spark of life, flowing energy of creation and evolution. She represents the mystery of the unknown and she ignites Eros, the desire and vital force to seek new experience, new associations, new possibilities and connections.
She resonates transpersonal, harmonious love for everyone and all beings. She is the domain of spirituality, mystical experience and intuition. Her presence is inspiring and causes one to feel renewed stimulated and revitalized. She seeks solutions, collaboration and consensus.
The Queen is perhaps the strongest archetype representing duty, authority and caregiver. To give life to another is the most profound accomplishment one can experience. The Queen archetype brings order, blessings, benevolence, fertility, balance, compassion and unconditional love.
She is the domain of material manifestation, family, kingdom and also material wealth and abundance. Her demeanor carries wisdom --not impulsiveness. She rejoices in the success and happiness of those who enjoy her care and selfless loving.
The Priestess archetype is possibly the least known and understood. She is the domain of intuitive awareness and insight, of secret knowledge of the unknown, spirit realm. The priestess has a magical connection to the great mystery of the pregnant void, mother of all creation, source energy.
She is a connector and master of her spiritual and material realities showing a confidence of knowing how to call forth and transform energies. She is grounded in her own depth and intellect and knows how to connect to deep inner truths and resources. She moves with grace and Insight.
The Warrioress is decisive and has clarity of thought, genuine humility, and the courage to do what is right even when it is a personal challenge to do so. She recognizes and supports causes that are for the greater good. She is selfless and maintains a warm connection to those that she serves. She is full of confidence, and her strength of stature is evident and unheralded. The woman who embodies the qualities of the warrioress makes you feel safe without being oppressed.
The Lover archetype has been contorted into a selfish expression of lust and erotic expression. However, the lover archetype actually contains a much fuller divine expression.
She is the energy of passion, exquisite engagement with life and the ecstatic being, alive and vivid. She is the epitome of sensuality in her mood, look, walk, bearing and engagement. She is intimately interested in all forms of sensory contact, experiencing the world in all its splendor. She is the archetype of play and healthy erotic embodiment without shame. She engages through her body with the vital energy of dance, yoga, or movement.
The Wise Woman
The shaman is the vision of the Wise Woman. She knows her self, mines her intuitive wisdom, and produces solutions that forward the advancement of resolution of opposites and difficult circumstances. She is the essential archetype for the survival of her clan community, family and human species. She is the expression of the Ego in service to the higher self. She quietly orchestrates wise counsel and supports the wisdom of others. She is thoughtful and reflective and rests in her connection with spirit and the earth.
By tuning in to your Divine Feminine Energy, you will be able to build stronger relationships with colleagues, friends, significant others, and yourselves. Imagine the impact on your personal and professional success when you channel this energy in your day-to-day life.
