How do I claim my power in the Sacred Feminine?

In the early days of Women’s Liberation, we claimed our power by protesting, burning our bras, and by actively addressing the inequalities that women were experiencing at work, at home, an in government. We demanded that we be listened to. We demanded what we needed.

But what does it mean today to claim our power?

The Sacred Feminine is an energy that can transform the world, but it is a powerfully subtle energy.

With respect to the choices that earlier generations felt they needed to make in order to ensure fairness and equality for women—claiming our power, within the spiritual context of the Sacred Feminine, is something that takes place prior to taking action in the world.

Because Sacred Feminine energy lovingly holds all of life in its suchness, holding our struggles before choosing to take action, gives us an opportunity to heal some of the emotional pain or trauma connected to our struggles.

When the pain and frustrations have softened, we are in a better position to then hold the pain and struggles of others. As the struggle dissolves, choices become clearer and right action is more likely to emerge.

Basically, we stop blaming ourselves or others. We stop judging ourselves and those that have wronged us. We stop condemning ourselves and others for our short-comings and short-sightedness.

Instead, by embracing our struggles in unconditional love, we set the stage for communicating compassionately with others, while simultaneously lovingly setting boundaries for own self-care.

When the internal struggle within you is finally laid to rest, you are able to help others end their own internal struggles. In the field of compassion that you create through the limitless love of the Sacred Feminine, you have claimed the ultimate state of power through which new ideas, perspectives and solutions can arise.

Imagine the world that women can give birth to through the power of the Sacred Feminine?
