As the tide swells and intensifies in this time of upheaval, it becomes more and more urgent to tend to the Feminine.
After centuries of patriarchy, we women are in process of gathering lost fragments of our bodies, hearts, and souls and knitting ourselves back together.
The Feminine… as women are in dire need of:
- and awakening.
Because of patriarchy, so much of who you are as a woman has been cut out and dismembered. Your voice. Your body. Your power. Your sacredness.
And your womb — the living well of your femininity, fertility, and creativity.
When a woman’s womb isn’t healed, she can have physical and emotional health issues. She may not be able to access pleasure and desire. She may not be able to create — and this is not only children. She may not truly know and embody who she is as a woman.
Women’s wombs have the same energies of fertility as Mother Earth. Your womb is a portal to Shakti—the creative Force of the Universe. Ironically (or not so ironically), the most hallowed place in our bodies is the most violated.
Women have huge amounts of wounding, shame, fear, guilt, and taboo on a cellular level in their wombs, and about their sensuality and sexuality. Whether or not they’ve experienced sexual trauma. In ancient times of the Goddess, it was commonly known that our wombs and vaginas were honored places of great pleasure, ecstasy, mystery, and connection to the Divine. Yes, sexuality and sacredness was integrated then. We need to rediscover and embody this ancient wisdom for ourselves.
I will be offering a 4-month “Womb and Sexual Healing” Program next month.
In preparation, I asked Mother Mary: What is sensuality?
Here’s what she said.
What is sensuality?
Sensuality is the deliciousness of your body. The most important language your body knows is sensuality. You are animal. You have an animal body and you must get in touch with that to love yourself.
There are so many who are religious or spiritual but hate their bodies. This separation causes disease, causes emotional sickness. You see animals don’t get depressed unless we expose them to human conditions like caging. When you are wild in your body, sensual in your body, your energy moves and you can process the stresses of life quicker. Your sensuality is as divine as a flower, as supple as the movement of a cat, as natural as flowing water. Why would you deny it? Why would you deny a flower? A wild animal? A stream? Their simple naturalness and beauty.
When you are sensual, you are in touch with your life force, with shakti, and you are not in your mind but in the sacredness of your being, of your body. So many people think they must separate body from Spirit, that Spirit is sacred and body is to be denied or is unholy. Nothing can be further from the truth.
Your body is the temple of your Soul. If your body is not made temple, your Soul will not enter. Your temple must be beautiful, clean, fresh, alive, with the elements, and must enjoy itself, and love itself, and have every pleasure and physical beauty. Just as any space you go to, whether it’s your home, a spa, a store, any place that is beautifully decorated makes you feel different. And that is how you need to be with it.
Decorate it. Decorating from the inside for no other reason than to enjoy. And yes, this too, for there are so many different kinds of sensuality. This is essential for a woman and for any person. The sickness is to go into your mind and leave your body. The sickness is to betray your body, the pleasure of sensuality, and beautiful grace and movement. The betrayal is to not enjoy yourself.
You get there in many ways. Through your breath, the sensuality of your breath. Through movement. Through bringing your attention into your body, especially the places you hate, deny, that have been shut down. When you bring pleasure into your body you’re alive. You have the ease and grace of an animal, the magnetism of power. Your sensuality is the Divine Feminine.
Know me in this way, and you will know God and the Goddess. Claim your body. Claim your beauty. Claim your sensual desires and pleasures. They are holy. No less holy than the God in a church, an idol in a temple, a slab in the mosque, or whatever you pray to.
So put your sensuality up on the altar. Until you know me in this way you are not yet fully whole.
