Many prophecies have surfaced during these challenging times. One of the common themes is the breakdown of the patriarchal system and the rise of the Divine Feminine.
Being a child of the ’60s, I jumped right in thinking, I’ve got this. Gloria Steinem was my hero. I wore pantsuits instead of skirts. I took the attitude that I could do it all. I didn’t need a man to help me.
I’ve gathered a few rough edges over the years, especially raising two children on my own, as my thinking charged full steam ahead. I had adopted a feminist attitude yet I pushed away the delicate, graceful sides of me with a harder, masculine edge.
My hair was short. I protected my energy. I fought to bring equality to my life, personally and professionally.
As the buzz began about the rise of the Aquarian Age, the energy of the Divine Feminine, I started to wonder how was I really showing up.
I have to confess, I wasn’t totally showing up in all my energy. I was pushing down the intuitive side of me, defending my inner guidance, afraid to show any emotions, especially in the business world.
I was guarding my emotions at work. I wasn’t speaking up in the conference room meetings.
I was holding to boundaries that blocked my ability to see both sides within me which also meant around me.
Digging a little deeper, and working with my teachers, I began broadening my energy to open up to new concepts. I began exploring what Divine Feminine really meant,
I was constantly experiencing what the patriarchal society was about with the male-dominated power structure throughout our society.
I seem to be fighting that every day as I searched for a better balance.
One of these concepts I came upon in my studies was the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor. A prophecy of the Amazon that speaks of the path of the condor as the path of the heart, of intuition, and of the feminine, and the path of the Eagle is the path of the mind, of the industrial, and of the masculine.
My assumption became one of not allowing for this full expression of both of these energies thinking one was at the exclusion of another.
Could there possibly be a way to express my sensitive female qualities and still find the ability to be assertive and strong in a man’s world?
Through teachers and ceremonies, plant medicines, and fire circles, I was shown how we always need to find a balance in both male and female energies that go beyond sexual identification and open up into a way of living fully.
To go deeper into this concept, I speak with Itzhak Beery, a leading shamanic teacher, healer, speaker, and community activist on this episode of the Empowered Spirit Show podcast.
Itzhak helps to clarify this prophecy stating that during the next 500-year period, beginning in 1990, the potential would arise for the Eagle and the Condor to come together, fly in the same sky, and create a new level of consciousness for humanity.
It’s not about one of the other but both energies coming together.
It’s about me showing up fully as a woman and being able to embrace the feminine and masculine. And for me to show up fully to embrace the masculine and feminine qualities as well.
Open up this dance.
Know when to lead and when to follow.
Allow for the balance of these energies.
