Nature: Time of a Feminine Age

Image by Josephine Walls

According to the indigenous grandmothers, we are moving into a different time of new beginnings when everything will work in a new way. Feminine energy will preside in this new era, replacing many aspects of the masculine, which required constant action and “push” in the physical world. It emphasizes “feeling” the way into right action as opposed to the old mantra of “just do it”.
Indigenous cultures were based on feminine principles and involved connection with the earth. (Simple exercises such as meditating while focusing on a landscape or tree were used to bring in a desire.) There is a strong focus on sensation and emotion, including the necessity of “knowing” if a step resonated with the heart, particularly when taking an action.
I learned about this method from wolves. They often spent an entire day focusing on a desire until it took form, or an opportunity occurred. (It works well for humans, too.) The earth supports putting thoughts in creative form. It’s an ancient, beautiful way of being, which is likely genetically encoded. It’s a state of oneness with the earth and sky. Beyond this, it’s a slower way of being that involves time spent looking at trees and skies while learning to love what is within us—or as the Native Americans call it, “walking like a living prayer.”
Part of the motion into the feminine comes from the placement of 7 of the 10 planets (astrology includes the moon) are placed in earth and water signs, which are feminine. Stillness, connection with nature, and meditative states are associated with indigenous cultures. By lifting our minds and emotions to a specific frequency, we heighten the likelihood of manifesting a desire. The desired result is harmonious and uplifting.
Personal Lessons from Nature the Current Time
1) I don’t need to travel into the world — or to do as much as I thought.  (I’m also happier this way, and I have more time for walks and higher thoughts.)
2) I can buy most of what I need on the internet. Without driving or flying, we help the earth.  (Staying home made a huge difference in the natural world in only a few weeks.)
3) The natural world is slower and more beautiful than I remembered (before the shut-down.)
4) I can’t see my friends or family, but I can send love and light to them every day. It’s a wonderful practice that I plan to continue.
5) Without diversions, I am much happier and focused. Nature is showing us a new way of life.
Here are a few, simple ways of tapping into the feminine.
1) Think of the generous aspects of nature and the universe. See the universal energies as a force that wants to fulfill your desires. Reflect on the good parts of your life and see more pouring into your life.
2) Sit by a tree. Focus on sending out thoughts about your happiness, how you could feel better in the present moment, and a better future. Ask the tree to extend the feelings into the future.  (Trees also help with intuitive communication with loved ones and friends.)
3) Meditate outdoors. Feel the sunlight moving through you like universal light. Hold a visual and ask nature to correct it. While in this process, notice the beauty and sounds in the world. They help with harmony and balance.
4) Go for a walk. Notice how your thoughts and feelings change with the landscape. Notice the colors and shapes that are uplifting for you.
5)  Thank the earth for her goodness and express gratitude for the physical body. Notice how your body works and functions well. Take joy in it.

    Thank you for the time you take to reach out to each and everyone of us and write some beautiful inspiring words to reflect on and bring in our daily life to think about. To remember to do and to send the love and light to all. That is what I have been doing since Feb.23.

    Its been quite the journey for all of us. A very great time and a challenging one. I am taking care of me through it all. My industry is saying it will not be back till September, I am not aligning and agreeing with that one!!! Cancel cancel.

    I am sure we are going through the biggest shift of our time. Working on meditation, prayer, yoga, walks and all I can do to make the vibration higher and calm.
