6: The Dark Divine Feminine


Is the Dark Divine Feminine just about desire, being more assertive about your sexual needs and taking a prominent stand in power and leadership versus the Light Feminine, assuming that is the mother archetype; the nurturing energy?

9.25 “Divinity is about understanding and embracing who we really are; and then embracing that and living that every day.” (Naomi)

13:20 Clay asserts that women have forgotten the power that they have and shares a story from Herodotus, The Histories, that shows the power of women: Candaules, a Greek King, insists that his second-in-command, Gyges, secretly sees his wife, the queen, naked so that he can admire her beauty. The Queen reveals her power and intelligence when she summons Gyges to her.
Femininity, masculinity, sexuality, gender – we begin to explore definitions and Ayurvedic representation. We discuss how all aspects can reflect the whole. Empathy, gentleness, humility are posed as traits of being a woman; but we discuss that they are simply human qualities.

25:04 “To deny our own impulses is to deny the very thing that makes us human.” from The Matrix film.
We agree that the Dark Divine Feminine to us is a way of embracing our masculine traits. Ultimately it’s all about balance and using appropriate characteristics in the appropriate manner at the appropriate time. We are all about embracing the whole of ourselves.
