It can be difficult to know when to speak up and when our silence is most powerful. Here is the meditation from January 16th to assist in discernment around women's oppression, injustice and how to make a difference.
There is a time to speak and a time for quiet. Come to us and we will guide you from within.
Wisdom of Mary Magdalene
Sometimes I ponder the challenge of women in spiritual leadership in our culture. The shadows and conditions around gender oppression that say, “Women should be quiet, nice and not cause trouble. A woman who speaks her mind likes drama and is considered a bitch.” I bring this to Mary and my guides. Mary says,
“Yes, you are right. There are additional challenges to bringing the Feminine Power into view for all to see, to taste and to grasp. As you are called to be one of these messengers, you have a fire to walk thru and are a target of projections and anger of others; those not yet ready to take responsibility for their own shadows and projections around feminine power and voice. This is your sacramental rite of passage. You will find many challenges and you will navigate through different situations in order to be heard and not persecuted in the process. You are learning which battles to choose.
You are learning when to speak and when your silence will make the greatest difference. You are learning how to speak from power sourced by the Divine and you are letting go of your own ego. This will influence and shake up the tightness of people’s beliefs and thoughts.
Your wisdom comes from allowing the fire walking of your journey to light the way for discernment.
You are trusting the guidance from within and though there may be some burns from past choices, you are learning how to walk the journey with our protection and guidance.
Come to us. We will guide you on your rite of passage and let you know which principles shall be spoken aloud and which must be allowed to mature more on their own. Honor our nudging and trust our guidance. We will teach you how and when to speak, how and when to watch and how and when to shine a light.”
