Breaking Bad – Empowerment from Betrayal

“I was appreciated and admired only for what I was to him, not for who I was and who I might be in my own right, and that (unconsciously) created a raging battle within me. I had become dependant on his attention. It makes me cringe just to think of it. I have to face very uncomfortable places in myself to own this. The bottom line is he showed up all of the places I already felt valueless and insignificant.”

Resurrecting the Innocent Heart.

I have memories of my early childhood. One was when I wandered into the neighbour’s garden.. I must have been very young because I discovered a plot of different coloured daisies that towered way above me.  I was mesmerized and enchanted by such beauty and wonder. In my child’s heart, I had found a magical…

The Great Divide – A Tantric Perspective

Men and boys grow up in our culture walking on eggshells. The idea that masculinity is something to fear permeates the psyches of men and women alike.  To tend toward aggression, violence, domination, and exploitation, is almost expected of men. We expect them to be guilty before proven innocent. We expect them to ‘step up’ and ‘man up’. The effect of these unspoken assumptions is a heavy burden to bear.

Deep Defiance

Originally posted on Joyous Woman! with Sukhvinder Sircar:
She’s redefining Deep Defiance. It comes from her roots going deep into the earth. There are too many happenings in her world wanting to break her down. Her rootedness makes her unshakable. That is defiance enough. It does not necessarily show up as a fist in the…

Breaking the Cycle of Abuse ~ Avalon Darnesh

Holy shit. I’m having a smack in the face at the insanely unacceptable levels of abuse that women still suffer on our planet. I’m not finger pointing at men, because the whole culture is totally screwed up and it’s a domino effect. Those men were raised by women, and if those women were in their…

Dear Men

Dear Men, There may be some empathy and healing for humanity to access when we realise that women not only feel their individual pain but also are affected by the collective feminine energy field… Depending on a woman’s sensitivity and the place in her cycle, her receptivity and how she is affected by this changes….

Diving for Pearls

The downside to the transcendence paradigm is that it all too often does not acknowledge the wholeness of the exquisite blessing that is our humanity. In fact, if we are not careful it can reinforce the damaging rift between the thinking and feeling parts of us. so that we end up (unconsciously) judging, editing, marginalising or suppressing our true urges and feelings (essentially the feminine aspect of our being)… sound familiar? Breathe into that for a bit…

False Idols and True Grit

There is a woman I know who really pushes my buttons, she looks like Barbie, which in itself is neither here nor there… It’s just the way she flaunts her beauty… as if it automatically elevates her to the status of ‘goddess’.and qualifies her to be a representative of divine feminine ‘spirituality…   I’ve embarked on honest self-inquiry around…

The Muse

  She is…        the hungry tension in the string that calls the bow. All fertile,  open spaces, pulsing with Her tones… Succumbing to Her rhythm… The power of Her flow…. I’m dancing…         In the twilight Between broken and composed.

Trauma, Victimhood and Denial

Recently, I read a post by a popular spiritual leader where he picks apart and condemns the new age movement and accuses it’s exponents of judgement, spiritual bypassing and denial of victimhood. While I haven’t been much of a fan of the new age movement myself, I feel compelled to speak up (as I do) about…
