I have conversations with the universe sometimes and lately I’ve been in this mode of “What the fuck?” Politically, socially, economically and environmentally it seems we are in a big vacuum of choas. Women’s rights, climate change, program cuts, rising violence, mass homophobia. It’s terrifying.
In honour of moving from the principle of trusting in the universe, I do my best to stay focused on the fact that all these things happen for a reason but I will admit its hard as hell. Especially when genocide, injustice and terror are literally everywhere I look.
The universe responds and says, it has to get worse before it gets better. And then proceeded to say this.
As feminine rises to bring about this much needed change, it brings with it vulnerability, Which means we collectively will be challenged to open up so much more. Masculine unfortunately has not been allowed to do this very much and so there will be resistance. As feminine rises, toxic masculine will be fearful of this change and attempt to snuff it out. Very much like the ego being afraid of what it means to change, toxic masculine will aggressively protect what it has created in order to save itself. We must be compassionate and understand that we still must move forward. We must heal toxic masculine and allow all masculine to be vulnerable. To cry. To feel. To speak to what is happening. To remind them that they are needed and necessary. That we create together. That masculine protects and is a powerful force for making many beautiful things happen. That it is safe.
We must also check toxic feminine, that we are in fact meant to move from a place of being equal. On a level playing field. That no one is meant to dominate the other, but that we are meant to move and work together. To compliment each other. That we must hold space for love and support, even in our darkest moments.
All these things that are occurring right now are happening so we can heal. We must must MUST hold space for our men. We must love them. We must check ourselves, our egos and understand how much trauma all of this energy is unraveling. We must listen. Because that is what we are asking for from them. And in order for that to happen we must create space for men to open up. So they don’t feel afraid.
All of this stuff is happening because it is linked back to fear. Now the work is to step in to our own, lean in to the discomfort. Make no mistake, feminine is rising, even if it is under fire. It is a necessary change and one we have the power to bare and to move through. As women we need to stay focused, ask for support and also speak our truth. At times we will need to be fierce and stand up for what we believe. I see that in you sisters, make no mistake. In order for this to work, we must work together. There is no other way.
So I say, trust. Even though it’s hard. Change is happening. Speak up. Just because we are under fire right now does not mean we should hide and wait it out. We must be willing to get uncomfortable, maybe even more than we ever have before. Love as much as you can. Take care of yourself. Step into vulnerability. We must now. In order for us all to heal.
