EARTH is the Feminine Principle

EARTH is the feminine principle – love, creation, liquid movement, pure ecstasy.

In all my work with women across the planet, I have come to realize how many women despise being born into a female body. Growing up at the end of Patriarchy, we find ourselves where we have political and economic power and a right to choose. Many young women look at their fathers and see them as capable and skilful in the world, while at the same time having an experience of one or more female family members who appear to be emotional and weak, depressed or filled with resentment.

No wonder that many girls choose to follow in their father’s footsteps and deny the feminine in them. This model of the feminine that we grew up with – a woman who is excessively emotional, weak in her self-esteem and her capacity to help herself – is a creation of the collective unconscious. It may have been our experience of women, but it is not a true reflection of the feminine. This is the subconscious feminine.  In men the subconscious feminine similarly plays out as a waif-like dependency and indulgent emotionality.

When woman becomes more conscious, she starts to own her emotions and her power. She learns not to use her emotions to distract herself from what she is really feeling. She begins to feel and inhabit her body in ways that the subconscious feminine never could. She starts to drop into her heart. Lovemaking for her becomes truly an expression of love, and no longer just a desperate – and at time devious – attempt to get love, attention or acceptance. She discovers that she does not have to manipulate men to get power, and realizes that there is in fact tremendous power in her receptivity.  The same qualities of the conscious feminine – the capacity to love, to feel deeply and to be receptive – can awaken in a man’s feminine aspect.

Finally, the deep feminine begins to wake up in us. The deeper we open to feeling sensation, the more subtle our perception of the body becomes. Layer after layer of the body opens up, in lovemaking and in life. We discover that this body, that I thought was my body, is so much more. We start to viscerally experience our oneness with the body of life. The deep feminine has a hundred thousand faces. She takes the shape of every creature, and every experience, in existence. She is the principle of power, the great mother, who creates all of existence. She opens to feel it all – in her body and in her heart. Her capacity to love becomes immense, cosmic and profound.

The feminine principle embodies Earth, which symbolizes all of creation. In deep embrace with the masculine principle, she is penetrated by his consciousness. The golden seed inside of him impregnates her with consciousness that creates new forms and new realities. Lovemaking that happens in this way is a wild, ecstatic, unpredictable, cosmic act of creation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
