These are the words that came to me today when I saw the word “Feminine” for today’s prompt for the May Magick 2019 that I’m participating in.
I didn’t always see myself as feminine and having worth and being special.
I didn’t always honor myself, love myself, create sacred space for me. I didn’t know about angels and spirit guides and animal spirits, faeries and Gaia. Or, ritual and prayer. And I didn’t know about Her. I didn’t know about the Divine Feminine.
I didn’t know that I can ask for myself, and that it’s ok to receive, give myself permission, and forgive myself. That I don’t have to feel guilty, or make myself small to let others feel good about themselves. I didn’t always know that I don’t have to carry shame around with me like a suit of armor, or live from a place of fear. And I didn’t know that I don’t have to hide myself away, I didn’t always know that there is another way, that I’m allowed to think a different way or that the universe is not against me.
I wasn’t always proud of who I am. The truth is that I didn’t know who I am.
I didn’t know my own feminine worth, my own beauty, my own desires. I didn’t have dreams, I didn’t know I was creative, and loving, that I had wisdom and beauty and joy all inside of me just waiting for me to wake up to my own self and unearth out my hidden treasures.
I didn’t always know that I am Divine Mother incarnate. That She is in me, as me, and through me. She is me and I am Her.
I didn’t know – I am all that – Divine Feminine!
