A letter from your guide:
This is a little Ode I wrote about what being a woman means to me. It is a great honor to run these retreats and I believe they have the power to change not only our own lives, but raise the energetic frequency of the collective consciousness. I look forward to getting to know you ladies in the wild of Cambodia and having a truly transformative experience.
The Divine Feminine in all humankind loves to make things better and loves to beautify that which is around us. We like to create solutions. We like to share and learn from each other. We are persistent at fostering growth and prosperity in those we love. Our Divine Feminine is powered by an undeniable connection to source. Awareness and protection of this part of ourselves allows a primal force of love to move though us. The archetypes of the Divine Feminine reside within us all. There is the Goddess, Queen Mother, Priestess, Warrioress, Lover and Wise Woman.
The Goddess connects to Source. She nurtures and cares for the young, sick, elderly and vulnerable. She sees the Divine in all of life and her passion is a primal force that leads to creation. She is inspiring with dynamic energy that is born of intuitive wisdom that knows that we are connected to everything. She whispers in your ear that we don’t have to worry but simply surrender to the flow. She reminds us to trust in our abilities and in the inner workings of the Divine Plan. She seeks to pull everyone together through collaboration where all who are involved will succeed. She is the Goddess archetype and she lives in me and she lives in you.
The Queen Mother is exquisite in her authority. She knows when to be strong and when to be gentle. She nurtures those in her care to self-sufficiency. She creates a stability and calm through the chaos and teaches us how to find it in ourselves. She’s caring, calm and persistent; she’s always there when you need her. She is the Queen Mother archetype and she lives in me and she lives in you.
The Priestess is an intuitive lifeforce that connects the material realm to the unconscious realm of spirit. She reminds us where we came from, why we are here and who we have been. She can access our ancient records when we get too involved in the physical world, so we remember the simple truths of why we’ve come in to these bodies. She holds the knowledge of infinity and imparts her wisdom to truth seekers. She remains connected to source and a facilitator for those who cannot see the whole picture. She’s a medium who communicates with the eternal magic that runs through all of life. She remains grateful and humble as a beautiful example to us all. She helps us learn to transmit the poisons of the physical world and detach a bit from the conditioned values that keep us unsatisfied. She downloads the big picture and broadcasts it across the mundane. She is the Priestess archetype and she lives in me and she lives in you.
The Warrioress is fierce and direct. She slices through veils of self-deception and stands firm in her truth. What she’s fighting for cuts to the root of all that plagues us, so we may be of service to ourselves. She is a brave protector of the ultimate truth, she holds dear to her heart. She is a fierce servant of the good in all. She’s fought many battles and has grown compassion for her allies and her losses. She knows her work must be done. She has the courage to confront her own inner weaknesses and love her wounds. Experience has made her strong and she’s loyal to the greater good. She fights against injustice with each day being better than she was the day before. She doesn’t look to others for competition but for the strength in energy that is multiplied. She’s skillful and decisive. She is the Warrioress and she lives in me and she lives in you.
The Divine Feminine is a Lover. An image of sexuality has been forced upon her by the patriarchy with simple labels of virgin or whore. She doesn’t care because she’s playfully and sensually who she is, with absolutely no shame. She will dance naked in the fields and not pay any mind to what they will call her. She’s a muse, moved by beauty and a joyous interpretation of the environment around her. She dances like no one is watching. She honors her urge to bond and unite in the physical realm. Her sensuality is enticing. Her expression of love on a physical level is everything intoxication wishes it could be. Primal passion erupts from her core and flows through her limbs and out through her eyes. She honors the senses, with no hesitation or guilt for her pleasure. She knows what she deserves and she’s happy to have it all. She tempts you to have a life of connection beyond ego. She is the Lover, she lives in me and she lives in you.
She is a Wise Woman, a saint, a shaman a holistic healer. Intuitive wisdom outpours in her every movement from the depths of her being. She sees the innerworkings of each situation. She knows all things have their place and time. She reminds us to hold the vision and trust the process of our lives. She holds the vision for our tribe. She believes in our potential, while allowing for emotionally tainted judgment. She doesn’t judge us yet always reminds us of who we truly are. She gives us direction and wise counsel. She observes and she monitors, carefully picking her battles. She gently asks us to raise our consciousness and see from a different perspective. She knows how to compromise; she is humble and she supports the unity of the tribe. She is the wise woman, she lives and me and she lives in you.
May we all reconnect to these parts of ourselves.
