Welcome to my new category Divine Feminine Power. I am going through another awakening period and it focuses on matriarchal vs patriarchal power. Why can’t it be equal? Most of my healing work is about balancing the masculine and feminine energy. However, there is so much more that we as women need to do for ourselves. From the earliest moments of life, most of us are told stories of patriarchal greatness. Subconsciously, we adopt the philosophy that the matriarchal role is of less importance and femininity is ultimately inferior. This kind of thinking binds us. It diminishes our self worth. It shackles our minds and our spirits. I invite you to release these debilitating thought patterns and beliefs and embrace ones that empower women as mothers, daughters, lovers, healers, teachers, and creators.
The following five healing affirmations, by Dr. Anjana Love Dixon D.DIV, helps to reflect on the wild woman that lies dormant by retrieving and unleashing your Divine Feminine Power:
My body is a miracle and giving birth is a blessing. The birthing process, no matter how it plays out for me, is a testament of my strength. It is a beautiful experience that ensures the survival of our species or creative works.
- I am free to love fearlessly and ferociously. I am an emotional and sexual being with the natural desire to share my affection or my love for my passion.
My monthly flow is a blessing. As a younger woman, I bleed from my sacred space and accept that this is a physically and spiritually cleansing process and welcome it each month. As an older woman through with menses, I reflect upon my life and listen to my intuition monthly.
My body is my own and I love it unconditionally. Every wrinkle, scar, stretch mark, and dimple on my body tells a story. Like with any story, there are parts that harbor sadness or pain, but I embrace these parts of myself as well. I understand that I write my own stories and can change them as I feel the need.
I am Divine by nature. I go inward to connect with ancient wisdom for the modern woman. I choose to honor myself as a powerful matriarchal being.
