When you know.
On the table this week for marination and dissection has been the topic of inner knowing... You know, the knowing, when you know. Ya know?!
All jokes aside... When we don't listen to that inner voice, when we don't slow down long enough to even hear that voice — that's when struggles happen.
Life can be easy. And simple. And free.
If we let it.
If we stop pushing through. If we stop and listen. If we let go, and let God.
That line use to bother me. "I make my own destiny!" I would think, when I heard Wayne Dyer say in his slow, deliberate voice, "Let go, and let God."
But the older we get, the less we push, pull, tug, demand, question, beg, grasp, etc. all the things that push us out of alignment.
When we are in alignment, we can thrive. We're in the flow, it's all working out.
And so, when we don't trust that inner voice fully, when we doubt ourselves and our Source, when we move too fast through life, we trip and fall.
Walk softly, they say.
And carry a big stick?
I say: walk softly, and carry nothing that doesn't serve you.
Let go and let God.
And above all, listen. Deeply. Slowly. Deliberately. For the messages that will guide you to your destiny.
Leave the stick for a dog;
Unfamiliar with Caturday? I first heard of Caturday in the music festival world, where on the second of a 3-day music festival, everyone wears something with cats on it in honor of Caturday! Not that I do this every week, but when I think of it I do, and I give my furry feline babies an extra squeeze.

Men and the Divine Feminine
For thousands of years, we have resided in a world of masculine dominance. The disparity caused by the polarity and the lack of balance has contributed to a world of turmoil. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the divine feminine movement seeks to counterbalance the inequality.
Instead of focusing on power and dominance, the divine feminine celebrates the strengths intuition, harmony, creativity and healing. It honors the goddess and encourages reconnecting with Source, nature, and beauty. The divine feminine movement is not about female dominance. That concept is not even a recognizable attribute of the female archetype. In fact, the divine feminine reveres all life. It's about choreographing a sacred dance of equality, tolerance, and justice.
Stereotypical masculine behavior is hardly consistent with the divine feminine movement. Those stereotypes include assertiveness, courage and independence. Many men may have their identity buried in the depths of dominance, control and leadership. As the divine feminine rises, the masculine may feel like their realities are crumbling. The perceived loss of control may cause feelings of uneasiness and inadequacy. A few reminders and shifts in perspective may help the masculine welcome the feminine and assist in the transformation:
First, by recognizing the need for the perfect balance of yin and yang, or masculine and feminine, they can assist with the merging together of a symbiotic union.
It's empowering to move from fear of losing control and feeling powerless into embracing the strength required to facilitate change. It's helpful for the masculine to realize that the movement of the divine feminine is not about female supremacy. Her goals are women standing in their peaceful power, celebrating and embracing the attributes of quiet strength, and speaking their truth from the depths of their souls.
The masculine have an opportunity to help orchestrate a beautiful symphony of conscious evolution by celebrating and supporting the sacred feminine. When the divine masculine remember their authentic selves and the duality that exits within all of us, a true synergy between the sexes is made possible.
The masculine have an opportunity to expand their soul's growth during these extraordinary times. One of the main factors in this expansion is the masculine (and feminine) remembering their soul contract to participate in this shift. This journey may be challenging. Change is never easy, and the very foundation of what the masculine believe about their place in society is being shaken to the core. The feminine can help ease these fears and resistance, and must also remember to embrace compassion, understanding and appreciation for the changes the masculine around them are undergoing.
The Spiritual Law of Gender is in place to assist both divine feminine and masculine. The key to mastering this Universal Law is to have an equal balance of yin and yang. We are slowly moving out of a masculine dominated world into a more divine feminine expression. The perfect symbiotic union between the two is, however, still our goal. As we begin to understand this sacred merger, the closer we are to understanding the Law of Divine Oneness.
