How to Connect With The Sacred Feminine
In today’s society, patriarchy and feminism are big issues. But the sacred feminine should be too. It’s very easy to forget what this is, why it exists, and what it means to our culture and society today. So what is it, and how can you connect with it?
WHAT IS THE SACRED FEMININE?
In a nutshell, the sacred feminine is an ancient concept of a type of consciousness that transcends current notions of society, religion, and thinking. It conveys the spirit and nature of human awareness that embodies empathy, compassion, intuition, and nature. It can also be said to be most like the yin aspect of the masculine/feminine duality system developed by the ancient Chinese. However you choose to define it, it remains as a mysterious feminine aspect of our lives.One that directly impacts our everyday decisions and actions as conscious beings on this planet.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE CONNECTED AND HOW WOULD IT APPEAR?
To be connected with the sacred feminine means to be in connection with your highest self, that intuitive part of your being that is out of the grasp of scientific reasoning and the thought processes that are highly glorified in today’s society. In other words, to be fully connected to the sacred feminine means that you are fully connected to your higher self or inner voice; or the Buddha or Christ consciousness. It means that your actions, thoughts, speech, and choices are aligned with the supreme good of not only the planet, but also other beings and our collective purpose.
PRACTICES TO NURTURE THE SACRED FEMININE
The thing about the sacred feminine is that it is an all-knowing force, symbolic of life and the universe and that it transcends preconceived notions. Thus, in listening to it, you will develop a strong mind, body, and soul connection, that will overcome the propaganda of today’s world via conditioning and patriarchy (beliefs held by current power systems). Here are just a few ways to nurture the sacred feminine in your life:
- FEEL YOUR FEELINGS
A big part of nurturing the sacred feminine is accepting one’s self and purpose, which is why feeling and being aware of one’s emotions is an essential practice for anyone wishing to be in tune with the sacred feminine. Keeping up with this practice, one may become more aware of what they are feeling and, instead of reacting, learn to align it positively with his or her actions and words.
- CONNECT WITH YOUR BODY
Along with understanding one’s emotions, connecting and opening channels in your body is a practice that goes hand-in-hand with improving one’s intuition. As the mystery of the sacred feminine encompasses all aspects of your life, it is important to become aware of what you may be internalizing, challenging emotions in your body, so that with practice you can learn to love yourself more fully – flaws and all. For example, have you ever suffered from a tight jaw or sore throat after holding back from expressing anger? When you become clearer internally, you can learn to better sense perceptions and cultivate awareness that will align you with the light and love of the world. For many, stretching and a regular yoga practice is a good start.
- FIND A QUIET SPACE
In today’s bustling environment filled with unending digital distractions, the practice of silence is necessary in order to clear one’s mind. In nurturing the sacred feminine, finding and creating a quiet space, in which you can ground yourself and get back to the good intentions of your supreme purpose, is important. By creating and revering such a place, one may be able to rid oneself of other feelings, emotions, and patterns that may have been collected through other people, circumstances and events that do not align with the supreme purpose of our collective being.
In learning about the sacred intuition and harnessing your own intuition, it is Ecofeminist Magazine’s belief that you will not only go on to make yourself a better human being, but also be able to complete your journey as a human being on this planet for those around you, your environment, and yourself.
