The other day we had a friend over for lunch.
He is a minister and officiates wedding ceremonies based on Judeo Christianity.
He showed us some pictures from one of ceremonies he officiated and we asked him to recite us the prayer of wedding ceremony, which was very moving.
I noticed during his prayer he used the words ‘God’ and ‘Father’ quite a lot.
I asked out of curiosity if he sees God as male or female energy.
He answered “God is God, we cannot talk about gender when we talk about God”.
Then I asked about the word Father he was using in the prayer and asked if he referred to God. He answered ‘Yes’.
Then I asked if he sees ‘Father’ as a masculine figure and if God is not associated with gender why he doesn’t use the word Mother in his prayer alongside the word Father.
My questions were asked out of sincere curiosity so I didn’t look for a challenge or an argument. His answer was “good question”… and I made him think about...
So why am I sharing this?
The whole idea is not to create an argument but to think deeply and see what’s going on in the world. In positions of so called ‘power’, like politics, religion or other systems, we still don’t see many women leaders. And I am not talking about women who are dressed in a man’s suit and wear a tie (this being a metaphor for women who are using mostly masculine energy).
It’s about women who are well balanced in their feminine/masculine qualities.
I am glad I asked my friend these questions because I believe a seed was planted.
And from this seed fruits will grow.
It is our duty if we are aware of our masculine/feminine balance to first work on it, honor it and also share with others but not in a confrontational way, instead in a wise peaceful way.
Sacred Feminine is being reinstated alongside sacred masculine to create a beautiful peaceful world. The time has come for humanity to recognize and develop the feminine side in order to accomplish balance between feminine and masculine.
Feminine side is extremely valuable to create peace in individual life as well as in the world.
During a spiritual ceremony in Peru with Shamans I got this strong message:
If we want peace in our lives we need to balance the feminine qualities with the masculine ones, the heart with the mind, yin and yang.
Otherwise we tip the balance again in favor of femininity and feminism and we find ourselves in trouble.
So we need equanimity and harmony with both aspects of ourselves. Developing feminine qualities will help us on our evolution to bring balance in our lives.
And if you are reading this you are probably aware of this harmony of masculine/feminine and you have a sacred duty: to share it with the world and teach others about it.

Prayer by Maya Angelou
“Father, Mother, God, Thank you for your presence during the hard and mean days.
For then we have you to lean upon.
Thank you for your presence during the bright and sunny days, for then we can share that which we have with those who have less.
And thank you for your presence during the Holy Days, for then we are able to celebrate you and our families and our friends.
For those who have no voice, we ask you to speak.
For those who feel unworthy, we ask you to pour your love out in waterfalls of tenderness.
For those who live in pain, we ask you to bathe them in the river of your healing.
For those who are lonely, we ask you to keep them company.
For those who are depressed, we ask you to shower upon them the light of hope.
Dear Creator, You, the borderless sea of substance, we ask you to give to all the world that which we need most—Peace.” ~Maya Angelou
