Woman are rising! Do you hear them? We are roaring on many issues.
The Woman’s March on Washington in January 2017 sparked a movement that we have not seen since the 1960s. This march was in direct response to the new president who was just inaugurated.
We were, are, and will continue to make our voices be heard on many issues. Not just issues that pertain to women, but all people.
Too bad this response was not seen at the polls in November 2017. We shall see what happens in the next elections since more woman than ever are deciding to run for political office.
Then, the sexual allegations of politicians started one after the other, followed by one actress after the other telling their stories on sexual assault in the movie industry. The #metoo movement has escalated to all women telling their stories. It is a crazy time.
Was I the only one wondering what the hell was going on? I was all on board until the sex came up.
I mean, yeah, these things happen and have always happened. But, why now and in such large numbers? Why was this bothering me so much? I am having a very hard time understanding my being triggered by this. So, I have waited and thought endlessly about this problem of mine. Why am I discrediting these woman and thinking they are being whinny weaklings?
I’m still not sure. But, like all things, there are many layers to issues and unfortunately it takes years to uncover all of them. Just when you think you have things cleared up, down the line, another layer of it resurfaces and the process starts all over.
This last Friday, a friend posted a video by a numerologist that I have never heard of, Natsnumbers. I’m glad that I clicked on that link because that led me to her other videos which explained why we had such a tumultuous time in 2017 and what is in store for 2018. Then things about the above issues made more sense to me.
To loosely paraphrase, she explained that 2017 added up to be a 1 year. The number 1 is a new beginning, or a fresh start. The main theme was to remember who we were and are.
I took this to mean that now that we are seeing such contrast in the world, whether it be good or bad, we now have a visual of how we really want to be and grow as a society. You might have thought you knew, but it has now been apparent that what you got is not what you wanted after all. Which is what we all learn eventually. So remember who and what you want to be and start being that. Who are we as woman and what do we want to pass on to our daughters and granddaughters?
Nat also explained that 2018 is an 11. The number eleven is a master number. It is meant to awaken something in us. It’s an independent drive to connect with the world in a different way. The way we connect is going to be our life purpose. What is your life purpose? What fires you up? What do you want to share with the world.
According to Nat, “the most selfish thing that we have been doing is sacrificing ourselves for other people.” That statement knocked me down when I heard that. My goodness, that is so true. Women have sacrificed ourselves time and again throughout the dawn of time and have been silenced at every turn.
So, who are we? Who do we want to be? What gifts do we have that we need to share with the world? How do we want to shape the world for the future? We woman once had a say in the world. We are remembering that and are rising up.
Upon exploring Nat’s website, I see she is offering a course on Super Power Initiation. Yeah. Woman are standing up and fighting. We are not lying down being quite and submissive anymore. That made me feel better. Let’s kick some ass.
Also, Elen of the Ways, has let herself be known to me. I have heard mention of her before but never paid much attention. This time she will not get out of my head. I bought a book about her and am so intrigued. I think I am learning my purpose. I am learning the nature of things. Like it or not, you can’t fight nature.
This weekend has been enlightening and has answered many questions I have had. I have urges to write but I am not a writer by any means. I hem and haw and procrastinate. I think way too much about a subject and then get very bored with it. I wait, and then guess what, someone else has written the same thing I was thinking.
The Earth Mother has been revealing her secrets to me for a while now and I am inspired to speak up. But, I haven’t. I’ve held back because, “who am I?”. I have been thinking that the cry of women is in fact a larger cry of the Earth Mother. Another “happen chance” thing is I ran into another shared blog post that said what I have been thinking.
This was a weekend of great insight to women’s issues, current events, numerology, and The Ways of Elen. The links are all at the bottom for you to read for yourself. Enjoy!
I have learned that our collective mother, Mother Earth, is crying out for us to listen to her. She is using us women for the world to finally hear us. She wants us to finally listen to her. To stop taking advantage of her and raping and pillaging her. Not only are the men doing this but women, her progeny, are doing this to her. We must stop. Take care of her. Love her. Listen to her.
When we do this, then we as women will naturally be nurtured also. When we teach the men how to take care of the earth and us, then the shift will happen. And a new world will be born.
Oh, it is not as simple as that, you say. Maybe not, but often times, the simplest answer is the right one.
So, yes, have your meetings and discussions on consent. That is a good thing. Let’s teach the current and future generation to ask instead of taking.
Ask, check in, love, nurture, care for one another, and listen. Do not judge and critque every word and word that was left out. Man, woman, child, different races, colors, religions, genders. You know, people!
And don’t forget the Earth Mother! She provides everything for you freely. Remember her!
