Painting – “Isis – The Goddess of Magick and Healing” by Jessica Dao
The Venus transit of June 2004 and 2012 both ushered with Divine Feminine Energies – The Goddess Energies – to our planet and has brought forth spiritual evolution and transformation.
All goddesses are representative of the universal cosmic energy, a symbol of the divine part within each of us which is innate and total perfection!
Throughout the centuries, every culture worshiped a Goddess in some form, especially the ancient cultures. Isis, Nuit, Artemis, Aphrodite, Venus, Athena, Quan Yin, Kali, Lakshmi, Shakti, Devi; and Gaia are amongst the many Goddesses. They are forces of Mother Nature, the moon, the earth and the stars.
Archeological finds have suggested that the earliest known shamans were female working with the Goddess energies. Indeed, many powerful healers of ancient Egypt were Priests/ Priestesses of Isis and Sekhmet.
In the last millennium, many modern male-dominant cultures have taken over the worship of the Goddess and replaced it with male God figures. The “witch hunt” of the Middle Ages and the treatment “women as second-class citizens” throughout many cultures were attempts to suppress the power of the Goddess; resulting in the current masculine dominated influence on the physical world in many societies.
The 2012 energy shift is a return of the Divine Feminine Energy, the Goddess, to the physical world bringing balance and harmony to individuals and the collective consciousness. Drunvalo Melchizedek and many lightworkers around the globe have prepared the ground work for the return of this Divine Feminine Energy since 1990s. Elisabeth Jensen’s article “Awakening to The Divine Feminine” written for Sphere Magazine June 2004 gave much insight to the return of Isis energy and her healing power, assisting humanity in the transition into the Golden Age.
There exists many misconceptions and resentment about the “Return of the Feminine Energy”. Many fear that this return will create an up rise where females are taking over the world, overrunning and controlling the male population!
As the physical world has been out of balance, for at least the last millennium, the return of the Divine Feminine Energy is much needed! We are all interconnected, our thoughts, our emotions, our actions; and thus the manifestation of the physical world! The quest for harmony with Mother Nature and the cosmos starts with each and everyone.
Understanding the bi-polar nature of the energies and being conscious of these extremes is important! By embracing all aspects of the bi-polar we learn to truly accept who we are thus make way for personal growth and transformation. Certainly it is a challenging task for societies with fixed gender expectations!
The Kabbalah’s tree of life, the heart of Jewish mysticism contains the principles of polarity, the divine masculine Chokmah (wisdom and intuitive), opposite yet co-independent on the divine feminine energy Binah (understanding and perception). Similarly, the Taoism’s Yin and Yang acknowledged the eternal coexistence of these bi-polar energies.
Masculinity, the Divine God self, gives us the strength, power, stability, growth, evolution, wisdom, dynamism, activeness, initiative, and courage. Too little we could become weak, passive, no progress in life and on the other hand, too much can result in aggressiveness and ruthlessness.
Femininity, the Inner Goddess, brings compassion, flexibility, communication, understanding, loving and kindness, Gentleness, empathy, sensitivity, caring, sweetness, tolerance, nurturance, deference, fertility, perception, passiveness. The many qualities if lacking can create chaos, aggression and heartlessness.
Like angels we are all androgynous in nature, our innate divine self. We contain both feminine and masculine energies, intertwining deep within our soul and our being. It’s the Yin and Yang, the dance and coexistence of creation.
With this awareness we strive to embrace and maintain a balance within ourselves. Our inner balance and harmony then reflect on to those around us, the situations we are in and the world at large.
I work closely with the Goddess Isis, the Principal Egyptian Goddess, the mother of all creation, the Goddess of Ten Thousand Names. All Goddesses are aspects of Isis! She is associated with love, compassion, motherhood, marital devotion, magic, healing, eternal life, strength, courage, endurance. Although she is a Goddess, she is the embodiment of a perfect balance between the Divine Masculine and Feminine energies.
Isis has awakened my inner Goddess and has transformed my life and others around me in wondrous ways! We all can awake our inner Goddess either by working with the Goddess archetypes, the Angels, creative meditation, crystals, astrology, numerology, essential oils and remedies; or by simply going within to realise our innate Divine perfection, be a God/Goddess in everyday life, and see the same quality in everyone and every living creation!
