June is the Month when we Honor Fathers in the United States. The Masculine energy figures prominently in the heavens now, as the Sun is activating the Pluto/Uranus square, and Saturn prepares to end its retrograde. The Sacred Feminine has penetrated the Sacred Masculine with the Venus Transit.
We Honor your struggle as men in this world, and we call you with voices of Love to open your hearts. Stand beside us in Sacred Union, hear our cries. Reclaim your true masculinity, your wholeness, your heart!
To those of you who answer the call of your Intuition, we honor you in this Big Shift. We honor you for the risks you have taken. For as far back as we can remember in society, we have broken the spirit of our children the way we break a horse in, and we called that parenting. In this day and age when women rise in their strength, we wish to honor you for following your HEART. For as a society, we have trained our boys so well from such a fragile age to toughen up, work themselves into the ground, and join the ranks. We have made men “disposable” in doing so and compromised our own human integrity.
A man raised in 20th century American society is traumatized by the culture. How well you can steel yourself against trauma and keep going is a measure of your manhood. Stuffing your emotions, self-denial, and self-sacrifice are masculine virtues. Your sexuality is considered dangerous and must be controlled, and yet, everyone agrees: ‘boys will be boys.”
Is that working for you? Trading off the richness of intimacy and deep erotic satisfaction for a pendulum swinging between control and self-denial and a quest for youthful horniness.
What price are you paying in failed or dysfunctional relationships with the ones closest to you: lovers, partners, children?
What legacy of pain are you leaving your children -- the next generation?
What great work are you failing to launch?
Women have their time now; everything is shifting, and now is our Moment. We are prepared, equipped for ALL THINGS. More than this, we are beginning to unite into ONE body, seeking growth and wellness at all cost. As the Dalai Lama has said, The world will be saved by the Western Woman.
Only if you Men Unite with us as ONE body!
We the Women NEED you MEN, awakened Warrior-Kings. Together we are committed to the Great Work of healing, preparing, and creating the New World that is already here.
We must learn to live in it! Let go of the past, the ways we learned, and Unite in Creative Service to the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine.
Together we stand as Sacred Masculine/Warrior -Kings and Sacred Feminine Women of Light
Protectors, Defenders, Creators, and Lovers of the Earth and all her Children,
Remembering the Old Ways, the Ancient Ways of our Ancestors, and Teaching them as if they are New Ways, for a New Time, FULL CIRCLE.
All My Relations.
In Service we offer
A Sun Ritual for Men:
The man who sat on the ground in his tipi meditating on life and its meaning, accepting the kinship of all creatures and acknowledging unity with the universe of things was infusing into his being the true essence of civilization. - Luther Standing Bear, Lakota
"This sun ritual was given to relations at dearbrutus to help open hearts. It is one that is well-known by many traditions.
Stand facing the sun with your chest bare and your palms open to the sunlight. Feel the sun’s rays on your left-side chest area warming up your heart. If you like, imagine the sun’s warmth is filling your heart with every in-drawn breath.
You should do this exercise for a few minutes every day. Semi-cloudy conditions also permit doing the exercise so long as there is some shadow. At the end of the ritual do an obeisance to the sun and thank it for its help.
We The Women" is a gathering of Shaman, Priestess, and Medicine Women who collectively work for the Cosmic and Earthly tribe of one. We gather together in a sacred lodge, a Circle of the Sacred Feminine unbroken and always open with no boundaries, to unify and add our collective energetic flow to the world and beyond the sacred web of life.
