A few days ago I started going through some of the older articles posted on Talk2Momz. I wanted to see what was on my mind a couple of years ago, and whether I would still offer the same message. We do learn from experience, and sometimes a lot of change and a lot of experience will take place in a day or a month, much less two years.
In the past few months change has come quickly, and I think a lot of us have felt this. These changes may not be in the practical circumstances of our lives, but in the inner world, in how we experience things. There could be a shift in what we feel is tolerable; we might be eliminating whatever doesn’t sit right, quietly waiting for clarity, listening to the heart, or any number of things. We are a part of the global collective mind: it’s our mind too, so of course we’re dealing with what is ours and what is not ours, and this is experienced on a feeling level.
For a long time we have lived in the knowledge that everything is energy – from the most dense to the most refined. Our entire spiritual journey is to embody more and more of the refined energy – truth, love – and to anchor ourselves higher, as we call it, in a more liberated, open heart. ‘Raise your energy’ can be done, but no one is raised out of being here.
This world, as we have known it, is facing collapse, and veil of illusion or not, we came here to experience it as real. For one person ‘I’m here’ will mean something entirely different than for another, but we are each here to do our part, with knowledge of the human and earth crisis we’re facing. We are always accountable, because we are always connected, so when I talk about raising energy, it means, ultimately, being accountable within the awareness that I am Us.
With that said, let’s go to the old Momz articles: I found one from exactly two years ago on the archetypical wise woman, the grandmother, the crone or the elder woman. I was commenting on how the elder woman in Western culture has historically been seen as unpleasant, bitter, a witch, a hag, extremely ugly. I also talked about how Indigenous and Eastern cultures see the elder woman quite differently. As we know, some Indigenous cultures hold the elders in high regard, giving the Grandmothers final say on the most vital decisions affecting the ongoing existence of the tribe.
These cultural differences are not surprising, considering that a long-time patriarchy has tipped the West far out of balance. In the U.S. our effort, as women, has been to come to a more balanced position with men. Unfortunately, I see what we’ve done is succumb to confusion… with some in leadership having sought power, to be like men in power, believing that this ‘being like’ is advancement, and we, not knowing an alternative way, simply were taken along.
Sometimes our predicament really stands out. Just a few days ago I saw that Glamour magazine had named Caitlyn Jenner as a “Woman of the Year.” Now, I’m into trans people being able to live their lives openly, freely and happily, without suffering hatred and discrimination of any sort. But I’m not into cheering when a brick hits my head. Do you recall a few years ago when a trans man conceived a baby, the headlines declared, “A Man is Pregnant,” as if a long-awaited miracle had occurred?
Why does this world have such a hard time uplifting the life-giver, co-creator, soul mate to the man?
There is a reason. In another older article I talked about the careless destruction and exploitation of the earth as mirroring the disdain for and exploitation of the life-giver. Is what I said still true today? Of course it is. The earth is the Mother… reproducing and transforming life in the most incredibly glorious ways. Up until recently at least, all life began in the same way. The Physical, the Mental, the Spiritual: a spark is received and comes to life in the darkness of the womb… but now we have the petri dish and ‘reasoning’ robots.
