We are at a time in our collective story when many of us are reinventing, or what I like to call re-creating ourselves. In this re-creation of ourselves we are re-creating our world. I have been invited to share my story at the Women’s Reinvention Summit. I get to share the stage with some amazing messengers who are helping men and women find their true passion and purpose. It’s open to the public so check it out here. http://womensreinventionsummit.com/victoriamreynolds/2.
On to the rest of my post.
WARNING! At first appearance this may look like a man bashing post. It is not and you will need to read all the way to the end to understand why. It’s time to put on your big girl panties (or big boy underwear) and grow up.
Okay, now that we are all grown-ups let’s get down to business.
The age of man is over and its time we all get used to it. As the time of Mankind fades away and the time of Humankind emerges, women are coming out of the woodwork and embracing ALL of who we are. We are no longer willing, or able, to be kept behind doors and under wraps.
We are so much more than just the caregivers we have been told for countless centuries is our reason for existence. At the core of every woman is an urge to birth something new within ourselves and for the whole of humanity. It has always been there, for as long as human beings have existed, but in caring for children and homes we have never had the time to care for ourselves, and out of fear we have been unable to follow our gifts and passions. The more children we had the less time we had to think about ourselves and many women resigned to live their lives is woeful sacrifice to everyone else. We were kept barefoot and pregnant on purpose…
In this emergence we are reawakening our gifts, our magic, our original medicine.
Women have always been the holders of spiritual gifts. Our gifts were taken away from us by the masculine uprising that occurred thousands of years ago when humanity lost its balance and we collectively lost our footing. Prior to the rise of man we lived in a sanctuary of peace, in a symbiotic relationship with each other and the earth. That is the true story behind the Garden of Eden. As the masculine rose up he put woman down. He created the God of Man and reduced the Divine Feminine to dirt. There She has waited restlessly until man grew up and we all learned the lesson that both masculine and feminine are necessary for creation and wellbeing.
In the rise of man, feminine gifts were deemed dirty and evil until women were murdered for using their spiritual gifts. Any feminine gifts were seen worthy of keeping alive were claimed by the masculine for their own usage – gifts such as inspiration, healing, writing, painting, designing, music, sensuality…. – all for the glorification of men. If women talked to spirits they were murdered as witches and if men talked to spirits they were dignified as prophets. Women were limited to sharing their talents with other women behind closed doors and forced to give their services for free. Any women who desired to create anything other than babies were shunned and forced to use men’s names if they wanted to openly share their gifts. In these man-made beliefs, God forbid women to share their gifts with the world – and certainly precluded from making money with their gifts.
This belief that women and their gifts are not worthy of money and that money must be feared in the hands of women, has collectedly held women in a position of beneath-ness and less-ness. Until now!
We are coming out from behind closed doors, taking off the layers of wraps end exposing our gifts to the world. We are reclaiming our gifts and using them to heal the damage that has been done to humanity and to our planet in the belief that men rule the world. Mother is coming out and cleaning up the mess the boys have made and freeing Her daughters to work their magic. We are re-creating everything we touch with our gifts as we embrace our ability to connect directly with inspiration – no middle-man necessary. We are making money with love and loving what money has the ability to do in the hands of creative, compassionate, collaborative women.
The true meaning behind “being fruitful and replenishing the earth” has nothing to do with making babies and everything to do with creating trees of life that feed humanity. It mean’s planting our inspired seeds, cultivating our gifts and giving them the freedom to grow and expand, upward and outward as evidence of what is possible. Yes, money does grow on trees, the trees that we plant and nurture with love and as they bloom into magnificent reality. We women are so much more than the caretakers of children; we are the creators of worlds.
Women and money go together like butter and honey.
As this sweet golden deliciousness flows in our our hands we are able to use it for the betterment of ALL of humanity. Without the masculine ego we are able to see clearly the work that needs to be done to heal the earth and create a new reality where true love conquers all. After all, love is the most powerful force in the universe, and it is feminine.
As I said in the beginning that this is not a man-bashing post. It is so important for people to understand that “masculine” and “men” are not synonymous. Masculine is energy while men are men. Every one of us has both masculine and feminine energy, both masculine and feminine qualities, which make up the whole of who we are. The masculine dominance of humanity has also hurt men and prevented men from fully being who they have the ability to be. It fed men with the belief that they needed to control and dominate, and in the need for domination, they have been living lives based in fear rather than love, just as we women have. The emerging feminine allows men to embrace the feminine aspects of who they are and see them as strengths instead of weaknesses. It allows men to hug each other without shame and give money to projects that tug at their heart. It gives men the ability to support woman as women learn how to fly. It also allows women to no longer shun their own feminine aspects as weakness in a world where we have been attempting to be more like men. Embracing the Mother energy found in all of creation provides us with the ability to finally love the WHOLE of who we are. And, the Divine Feminine can finally take Her rightful place in balance and equality with the Divine Masculine, as is should be. I don’t say this to be all woo woo – I’m about as far from religious as you can get without being a complete atheist. How you see God/Goddess is an individual experience and only you know what is true for you.
As we enter this new phase in our evolution we can choose to be part of the solution that helps nurture balance or be part of the resistance.
We can choose to see the beauty of the emerging tree of love, or cling desperately to fundamentalist ways of fear and control. Each of us in our own personal evolution is a part of the greater consciousness. We can try to battle evolution or decide to be part of its magic.
