I have been debating writing this piece. I feel as if I am dealing with such a touchy subject but I have somehow discovered the courage to write it. I am of course referring to the Pro-Life / Pro-Choice debate. When you look at it at face value in the world we live in today it seems perfectly normal that a woman should have the right to choose based on whatever criteria is important to her whether it be her own health, health of the fetus, economic circumstances, age or that she just doesn’t want to have or raise a child.
I think my own view is probably more in alignment with Pro-Life but I will never judge the very difficult choice some women have to make, some alone and some with their partners to terminate a pregnancy. Advances in medicine have given us the tools to ensure that healthy humans are born and to me that is a gift that allows us to make better choices. However I still imagine that even then there is a careful consideration of all the facts before abortion is decided upon. I never imagine it to be a careless or reckless choice but one that is made with sobriety and care.
However this is not what I want to write about, what I want to address is the legislation that is being brought to remove a woman’s right to choose. For me this is a dangerous and slippery slope we are standing on and frankly have nothing to do with fetuses but everything to do with ensuring the Sacred Feminine does not rise.
We are all aware of the women’s movements that have sprouted up at grassroots level and have been building momentum over time. Were we really that naïve to think that the Patriarchal system would not fight back with any and all means at their disposal? These men still hold the power and they will wield it ruthlessly.
One simply has to look at the wording of the Bill put forth in Alabama to realize that this actually has nothing to do with the unborn but rather with the subjugation of women. Who in their right minds would conceive that having a woman carry a rapist’s child to full term was a good idea, or worse still one of incest? The fact is that the Bill will most likely not come into effect in the near future but it doesn’t have to. It is a ploy that we must not be deceived by. They are making the Bill as incongruous as possible to get it in front of the Supreme Court which is heavily stacked in the favour of the Patriarchy.
For the better part of eight hundred years the Patriarchy systematically stripped all women of their rights and burned those who would not go quietly at the stake. Picture a time, not so long ago (1900’s) when as a woman you could not own property, had no right to vote and once married you were not even regarded as a person. As a matter of fact you weren’t even able to gain salvation and a place in heaven.
Can you imagine going to a bank to open an account and being refused as a married woman because you would need your husbands’ signature? I don’t have to imagine, that has actually happened to me. In many countries that is still a requirement and it is impossible for us to wrap our heads around. I remember being angry and humiliated but I still had to get my husband to sign, there was no alternative.
It is going to get worse before it gets better. We should ready ourselves for pushback on a grand scale because the only recourse the Patriarchy has in this day and age is legislation and as I said they are going to use it. It also doesn’t help that women still don’t see themselves as equal to their male counterparts some even go as far as to repress themselves. I don’t know how many times I hear comments from women, usually older women, about the “Good Ole Days” and how much simpler life was. Make no mistake those days sucked big time for women and was the heyday of the Patriarchy. We were barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen catering to every whim of the Masculine and that was never the intention of any God.
What I do know is that the Patriarchal Masculine energy will no longer be tolerated in the Universe. Earth is being pushed to make strides forward in raising its awareness and consciousness. To do this we need to strike a balance between the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine, neither one should be subjugated.
I know that the older generations laugh at the Millennials because they seem to be blurring the lines between the genders but that is exactly the energy needed to start propelling us into the new consciousness. Yes to some of us it may look ridiculous but any change is considered such in the beginning. Just think back to when women started to wear slacks, they were ridiculed but now everyone finds it quite normal, a simple example but one of great significance.
We also are seeing an increase in men that are taking up the daunting task of healing their emotional pain, not just stuffing it down to fester into anger or drinking it into oblivion. In doing so they are healing their generational masculine lineage a task that is by no means easy or insignificant. The women are doing the same, in greater numbers at this time, but my dream is that we will soon be one for one. What I do know is that when a woman heals she gently guides her mate to his healing and once we have balanced our own relationships with our partners, sons and daughters we are healing seven generations forward and seven back. Just consider the ripple effect that can have on the vibration of the Earth!
To all of us who are healing and doing whatever we can to raise our own vibrations I say “A’Ho Awanestika”! You have been heard and your healing is the greatest gift you can give us…
Love & Light
