For months I have been writing and speaking about the great shift in human consciousness and giving examples of how it is emerging. Another important issue that has surfaced for humanity to deal with in order to make that great leap in consciousness is acknowledging and taking action to balance the male and female principle that has come imbalanced throughout the ages. At one time the female and male energies were equal. However, due to a shift in consciousness that happens approximately every 25,000 years,-precession of the equinoxes- an imbalance was created. Both female and male energy wanted to experience being the dominant energy.
I can’t say that the female energy was the first to dominate the planet because we don’t have that history. However, there is much about the Goddess myths of females dominating the planet. They were revered for their intuition, creativity and nurturing. As souls became more enmeshed into the materialism of the planet they forgot about the divine pact that was made at a higher level to experience power.
As time passed, men became envious of women because they could give birth and were considered divine. Many called it the “womb envy.” Joseph Campbell in an interview with Bill Moyers said, “The human woman gives birth just as the earth gives birth to the plants...so woman magic and earth magic are the same. They are related. And the personification of the energy that gives birth to forms and nourishes forms is properly female. It is in the agricultural world of ancient Mesopotamia Egyptian Nile and in the earlier planting-culture systems that the Goddess is the dominant mythic form.”
Two thousand years ago when another great cycle of 25,000 years took place, the consciousness of logic, aggression and control moved through the universe, with men taking over the domination the world. The reverse happened; women were now subservient to men. The Roman Catholic Church rose up against woman and defiled them. Mary Magdalene was called a harlot and slut, terms we know that have been hurled at women for decades. The real story of Mary Magdalene’s life is found in the Gospel of Mary, an apocryphal book that is not Canonical or even considered a gospel by some scholars. Of course, these scholars were men. One of my favorite books is the Red Tent by Anita Diament. Although it is a fictional tale, the stories of the daily life of Biblical women come alive with truth.
December 21, 2012 is the end of another 25,000 cycle and a new consciousness is coming in. Many souls have reincarnated at this time to play a major role in waking up humanity. Both Sandra Fluke, the young Georgetown Law student and Rush Limbaugh, the radio personality, are major players in this shift. I think of them as pawns on a chess board in the biggest game of all-Life.
Sandra Fluke testified before a House Democratic panel in support of the HHS contraception mandate- http://bit.ly/yObkrl. Because of her testimony, she was belittled and ridiculed my some members of the Press, especially, Rush Limbaugh who used such terms as “slut” and “prostitute” to demean her as a woman and her credibility. Does this sound familiar? The imbalance of male and female energy is now on the table and the game is on. It’s not going away.
More and more incidents regarding women’s rights will surface until humanity changes its collective consciousness. The shifting back and forth of male or female domination is part of a spiritual evolution process. I believe that since both energies have experienced power over each other the consciousness will shift back to balance in the coming cycle.
