Blogging has definitely been on my mind for some time now. The only thing is I have been feeling very ADD with all that’s happening in the world today. I wrote a few pieces and never got around to finishing them. Between the situation in Syria, ISIS, the recent US elections, the North Dakota pipeline, and today’s headline story in Ohio, it is no wonder I have been feeling so scattered. I am sure I am not alone.
I finally realized that there is just this one issue that has been front, and center for me that brings up really strong emotions in a variety of ways. Not that I have no feelings about the other issues, because I do. This is the pipeline I am talking about. I feel strongly about clean water for sure, and more than that I feel strongly about hurting humans let alone who are peacefully protesting for a simple human right. Not only this I feel strongly about the fact that water is a basic human need. I feel strongly that the ancient wisdom of all Native tribes is worth much more than a pipeline. Mostly, I feel strongly that there is definitely a more peaceful way to resolve this situation. Aggression is never the answer. Yet sadly, this is mostly how our world functions today. There’s more to this…
As I write this piece I realize that there is a deeper reason for why I am gravitating towards this issue. This is not because all the other issues are minor, on the contrary. I think they are all deserving of attention. No, it’s not that in a past life I was Native American (although that would surely be an honor), nor is it that I feel obligated to stand with Standing Rock because it’s the cool thing to do ( I suppose it is in a way). Rather it seems that the reason is much deeper, and has something to do with my being human with a strong connection to the power of my Sacred Womb. I am a human who is done with the outdated ways of the patriarchy and is hopeful for a new world order built on something like Riane Eisler’s model of partnership. I want Riane for president.
Since I am so much into learning about the unseen worlds, I am trying to grasp the situation from a metaphysical perspective. I probably will need more time to figure it all out, but what I do know is that water is associated with womb energy. The womb is feminine energy, and the womb creates life. The main ingredient for life in the womb is water. Water is life. Water is the feminine.
I made a conscious decision a few days ago that the best thing I can do in the place I find myself in is to tend to my own sacred womb. I am being the change I want to see in the world. Strengthening, blessing, purifying, and grounding myself in my divine feminine essence. My center of power. This is certainly not just a practice for women. I encourage all humanity to develop such a practice. It seems to me to be a great first step out of our outdated patriarchal programs.
Even if you are male, you have a womb presence as part of your subtle body. It is the center of all creativity. It is the place where we “bake” all our dreams, imaginings, and wants in life. It is not only a place of creation but the womb is also like a sponge. It absorbs energies from all over the place and therefore requires a lot of attention and care. The womb correlates with three of our chakras the root, navel, and solar plexus chakras are all a part of the womb. Physically it is the entire pelvic cavity. For anyone who may have had surgery in this part of their body, you would be happy to know that you still possess that creative ability with or without the physical aspect. You still have a Sacred Womb.
Like everything else in this universe, there are certainly metaphysical layers to the situation in North Dakota that I have been reflecting on, and maybe more that will emerge later.
The first layer is the underlying universal laws that control this universe which Mahayana Buddhism would call “mystic” or “myoho”, Muslims would say this is “mawaraiyat” or “that which is hidden from human sight”. There are correlates in all mystical traditions which I will most likely be blogging about in future posts.
The second layer is that we are a mini reflection of the earth mother. Her womb energy lives in us. It always comes back to doing our own self work so it can reflect back to us through the larger perspective.
The third layer is that this is most definitely yet another sign of the Divine Feminine attempting to rise. Just a day ago, the women came together at Standing Rock to show how it is possible to lead from a heart centered place of PEACE, and that there is no reason to resort to violence. All it really takes is standing in the powerful sacred womb space. This can be everyone, not just women. Everyone can connect to that space. It is “myoho” in and of itself.
I leave you with grace to reflect on this, and perhaps more layers will be revealed to you.
