Yin Yang, masculine and feminine, is the energy of a whole being expressing itself. Whether you are male or female, it is contained within you and this is not about, as always, labels. You were born out of an explosion of sexual energy, you are the end result of a meeting of a woman and a man, and therefore you carry the energy of both of them, just like they do. Suppressing one of the two aspects doesn't make you healthy. For example if you are a woman and you are not strong in your power, allowing anyone to treat you as they please, then you are not expressing the masculine within you. In the same way, if you are a man and you can not express in a healthy way your emotions, then you are not healthy at all and you are suppressing your feminine. The point is that in our society the Goddess, the feminine energy of Creation, has been suppressed. Religions took over the spiritual aspect of life in order to establish a caste to have the monopoly of the teachings of the great masters of the past, whom didn't found any religion. This was done to manipulate what they taught, so that the masses would be kept away to experience expanded states of consciousness: our power has been suppressed. Indeed for each religion we have a correspondent spiritual group: for the Christians we have the Gnostics, for the Islam we have the Sufis, Judaism and Kabbalah. All of this are non canonical, non recognized by religions, they indeed do not respond to religions, and they talk about the Divine Feminine. Sophia Gaia, the Goddess, wanted to experience creation so a part of her consciousness, took the body of a planet, planet Earth. One of the characteristics of the feminine archetype is indeed the Mother. She indeed nurtures us as the Earth does: she is conscious and alive and she gives us a shelter, a place to have fun, food, water: she nurtures us. She keeps us alive! Woman is the creatrix, she is the one that gives birth to this physical reality we live in. The womb of the woman, along with her sexual organs, is so sacred and yet today can be rented. Why? Because the womb is a stargate, literally. It is what a soul uses to come into a physical body to experience the physical dimension. Once again, through the merging of masculine and feminine energy!
Divine Feminine is also linked to water, which is the element of the emotional world. Women are known to be very well connected to their emotions, which is great because are the fuel of life. Love is what makes you push toward your dreams. Especially men, have been taught that expressing emotions is a sign of weakness, that is why we have so much trouble in our relationships. Expressing emotions is a sign of maturity, since we don't have anything to hide, moreover they are the very reason we are here: without them we act like robots. Another attribute is intuition: indeed it is linked to what the heart tells and it doesn't follow any logic reasoning. The feminine is also linked with healing: woman are the healers of the world because they are capable to awaken the greatest force within themselves and within others: love. And love is the highest healing energy aviable.
Another reason why the Divine Feminine has been suppressed is because women have been stripped of their power. Through history they have been always subjugated by men treating them as objects (still today through marriage which is a contract - no love there!) and denying their basic rights. This, in turn, acted as an impediment for men to express their Divinity, the Divine Masculine, because if you try to steal power from another you are just expressing how powerless you are. Taking something that is not yours from another, doesn't give you more, it makes you less than what you were in the beginning, because you are giving yourself away in doing that. This is why the revolution of consciousness is resulting in women awakening and taking back their power, they know their worth and they know they have nothing to fear.
Since the Goddess is the creative force, guess what, creativity is her signature! Oh yes, any creative work involving art, music, photography, creative content, spirituality is a good way to awaken this force in you. Also please consider the fact that seeing women, and this energy, as weak, or less than us men, is a program we need to clear. They are not inferior beings, they are not stupid -indeed they are super smart- and, in my experience, I have seen how they can handle a lot more than a men. Their reaction to difficulties is very different, and they can go through troubles a lot easier than us. Creativity is also connected with sensuality and sexuality. Women can wake up men to their vulnerability and openness in order to let them express the creative force -sexual energy- they have inside in a healthy and scared way. Yes they are amazing. I really believe this.
To awaken the Goddess, connect with your spiritual side. Go out in nature and walk barefoot on the grass. Listen to the wind, look at the stars: be a witness of beauty. Celebrate your own and see beauty everywhere. Do what you love, unleash your creativity and do something crazy! Learn how to express your emotions, how to listen and speak to and from the heart. Take care of your body and yourself on all levels.
The Goddess is the catalyst, the muse, the drive and the ispiration of man. She is the awakening force that leads you to have your own experience of what this Universe is all about. She is what allows you to stand in your real power because it helps you to find it within not to take it from others. Her symbol is the Moon, a calming shooting energy.
