Since I was a little girl, I have always been proud to be female and this feeling just increased as I grew older. I was born in the late ’60s so I have already witnessed several changes in society, even if they have been slower than I was thinking they would be.
Since we entered the 21st century though, it seems that something must have sped up the process a bit, especially in this last decade. The #metoo movement is just an example of what is slowly happening on the planet thanks to the Goddess or whoever the higher entity is helping us to evolve along the way.
Albeit more women are taking seats in parliaments of different countries and some have even been appointed either prime ministers or presidents, the majority of places of power are still held by men following the old way of conducting business.
Women Taking the Lead
Every time I read something regarding women advancing in their status, either politically, socially, or financially, my heart rejoices. It is not a question of defeating men, prevailing over or controlling the other sex — as it happened with the coming into power of the patriarchal system a few thousands of years ago — but of reinstating balance so that we can survive and hopefully thrive as a species.
To me, living in the feminine way means to give voice to both genders and anything in between, meaning that any person and creature should be appreciated and respected. I think women are naturally endowed for nurturing and protecting. Therefore, with more women in power, maybe the planet might stand a better chance to keep nurturing us all as it has done so far. By the way, Mother Earth will survive for sure, but whether we will too as a species…that is debatable.
I am sure that you might have come across this subject many times on many different platforms and media, but what I am really concerned about and want to talk about is to share something of meaning that might open people up to a new way of seeing things and a new way of living.
I think we are at a point in time when it is important to share what we feel strongly about, it is not time to be shy anymore, it is time to act!
As a woman, I feel strongly wounded whenever I see another woman being mistreated or silenced. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of examples of this filling the headlines of newspapers every day.
My question though is: “Are we ready for change?”
I am not sure we are.
I think that, as women, we can change things simply by being ourselves every day and by keeping our guard high which means letting our voice be heard whenever we see something infringing on our ethos and values. The offense doesn’t have to be massive, it can be anything that we see that we don’t agree with.
By noticing it, we exercise our awareness muscle and stay alert to what is going on around us, which in itself has a major influence on an energetic level and affects the energy field which will impact everybody. It might seem a bit “out there” or “woo woo” but in fact, it is not.
If collectively all women did this on a regular basis, things would shift much quicker than they are doing now. I firmly believe that we can affect anybody that comes into our vicinity or sphere of influence by simply being who we are, nothing more or less than this — simple!
The fact of being alert and conscious all the time, or at least in our awakened hours, requires a lot of energy and presence. You can understand if you have been meditating or been in contact with people who are much more spiritually “advanced” than you are to know what I mean.
This presence is something so tangible and strong that it can’t go unrecognized, but it can only happen if you are alert or “awake” too. I am very aware that this might seem too “airy-fairy,” but I don’t think it is and I believe that this is the only way to contribute to the process of mass awakening that is happening on the planet. To be able to become a so-called “peaceful warrior” of the peaceful revolution of consciousness one has to start playing what I call “the freedom game.” What the hell is this?
The Freedom Game
Well, it is an inner game that we can all play as much or as little as we want and we are free to choose. No one is compelling us to do anything and nothing major will happen until the majority of us might willingly decide to take part in this.
The first thing to do is to be aware that as sentient beings, we are powerful beyond belief and the effect that we can have on the whole is only for us to decide. This also means that we have to stop feeling or behaving as victims and deeply decide that we can change whatever we want or need in our life.
Deciding this on a deep psychologically and emotional level is the “conditio sine qua non” (an indispensable condition) to fully open the gate of our power. This deep conviction that we feel inside, a point of no return, a feeling of enough is enough, this changes us forever.
If one has been behaving like a victim either consciously or unconsciously, it might be difficult to eliminate quickly this pattern of behavior. But becoming aware that we are powerful can start opening up our consciousness and have an impact on the collective. By allowing this thought to pervade us at all levels, psychologically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, without opposing it as something crazy, is the first step to freedom.
Do you really want to be free? Or are you happy to just trotting along and keep the status quo in place?
The prize at stake is humongous and worth at least a five minutes’ reflection.
I personally have decided to play “the freedom game” a while ago and do my best to stay alert as much as I can and observe quite closely what is going on in my mind and heart on a daily basis.
To decide to live a life of freedom is really tough and the implications are countless. It is more demanding than you might think.
First things first though, how would you like to be and behave as a woman of the “new era”?
We have been conditioned for so many millennia to be passive and to conform, that it is difficult even to conceive that there is another way and we can choose which way we want to be!
We don’t have to be “good girls” anymore and we can rattle the cage of the status quo as much as we want. When we start expanding our consciousness, slowly, slowly, we realize that there is no limit. This game is, in fact, not a game, but it is our reality: the reality that we can choose to create together with our sisters.
How do you want to be as a woman?
How do you want to be considered or treated or perceived?
Anything that you do, think, wear, say, and feel will impact other people. It is never a simple conversation, we can express ourselves in every breath we take, in every word we say, in every thought we think and in every emotion we feel in every moment of our life. It is a lot!
There are many, many aspects of this and I can’t explore them all here, but let’s start with one of them, maybe the most obvious.
Women As Sexual Objects
Women have been treated as sexual objects by men in all societies to a bigger or lesser extent for a very long time, wouldn’t it be time to stop this once and for all?
The first thing to do as women to reverse this trend is to become super aware of our sexual power and influence and start using it consciously.
I remember being young and completely driven by this force and being barely aware of it. With time, and by becoming older, I have become more and more aware of this sexual game, but why wasn’t I as aware when I was younger?
I was never taught anything in this respect.
Well, there is a reason why women have been kept in ignorance — men didn’t have any interest in dealing with aware women. It is so much easier to deal with powerless women, they are much more manageable and controllable!
A woman who is conscious of her sexual energy and controls it at her will won’t give in to anything in the world, as simple as that!
My question to all women out there is: do we want to keep going down this path? Or do we want to take our power back and use it to create a peaceful and friendlier world where everybody is respected?
Aren’t we fed up with being treated as sexual objects?
I certainly am and won’t stop waking as many women as I possibly can!
The Night of the Oscars
One event where it is easy to check where we are at with this is watching the night of the Oscars. I am aware that this might be representative of the Western world only, but unfortunately or fortunately, the Western world has still such a strong influence on the rest of the world that I think I can say it is a good window to check how we are doing on a bigger scale.
Well, this year, like all the previous ones, have shown a plethora of examples of how women are perceived or considered in contrast to how men are seen.
Male actors, directors, or any other male professionals in the film industry tend to be considered and rewarded for their skills and intellectual power, whereas women tend to be considered still to these days mainly for their appearance. Why do men wear suits and women tend to wear dresses that show more than they cover?
Why, when actresses dare to walk on the red carpet without make-up, do they tend to be criticized wildly as if they had committed a crime?
Why do we still feel compelled to look in a certain way rather than just as we want to be?
How many of those women who work in the film industry really want to go around half-naked? Or they do it because they feel compelled to do it to attract more work?
Isn’t it time to change all of this?
As a matter of fact, this doesn’t happen only in the film industry, but in most all other industries but it is simply better disguised, rather than being so much in our face!
My dear sisters, it is time to wake up and change this sexist way of doing business. It is time to take back our power and use our powerful sexual energy to our advantage and for good purposes rather than just to foster our working careers!
Am I alone in thinking and feeling in this way?
When I just quickly browse the media every February to find out which films have been selected and won an Oscar, my heart bleeds. Why are we still showcasing and using our beautiful female bodies to be noticed and please men rather than ourselves?
I am not saying this lightly and because I am a prude or bigot. I was born a free spirit and will die as such — a free bird.
Together we can change the status quo with just a little bit more awareness every day. A little change goes a long way.
Happy flying high to all my powerful and awakened sisters around the world! Whether you share the same feeling or not, I would like to hear from you, please make your voice heard as it is important.
May grace and power be our companion along our journey and may we all, men and women together, create a new way of living for us and future generations.
