Lee Harris: Loving the Feminine Road Less Traveled

You can watch Lee Harris’ June Energy Forecast below. As always, Lee expresses so much of what I’ve been sensing, feeling and honoring in client sessions and in my own life. That return of the goddess energy just keeps amplifying on our planet, surrounding and permeating our world. I do notice that some people have become so divorced from the idea of the Divine Feminine that much misunderstanding exists. As Lee mentions in this month’s forecast, June’s energy shift is about balance. In a world that has suppressed the Divine Feminine into the Shadow, that energy may rise in what initially appear as scary or painful ways:

“There is a great grace and heart energy coming into our world in June, which will allow the emotional movements to be fast and deep if you are willing to let them go. Conversely, if you resist or insist on sticking to ‘the story’ of your pain or suffering, things will feel chronic to you until you start to feel rather than ‘think’ your way through.”

Here in Madison, the day after Walker survived a virulent Recall attempt that seems to have emboldened his political attack on unions, minorities, education, the middle class and especially women, it would be easy for people to play the victim or insist on “‘the story’ of your pain or suffering.” I am personally not surprised by the election results, though, because I’ve been sensing that Dark Goddess energy for a long time, particularly in politics. The appearance of the goddess rarely means immediate or easy success. Sometimes the goddess tests for courage; often she invokes pain or humiliation in order to help us regain our strength. She employs unfair tricks, grand illusions and even mockery. She’s fickle — aiding and abetting both sides at different times.

Sound harsh? Sometimes it is! And yet, there’s a playfulness, toughness and unconditional love behind her actions. We might want to think of her more like a Mr. Miyagi from Karate Kid. A gorgeous, terrifying, Mommy Dearest, sword wielding and spell casting Mr. Miyagi — but also a birthing, rejuvenating, fecund, fertile, creative and empowering coach, who helps us grow in ways we don’t appreciate until we recognize our newfound awareness, strength and skill. When we start reclaiming these gifts of the Shadow feminine, we can finally reclaim her most precious gifts: sovereignty and protection of the land. We learn to see through the illusions of this world as we come to know this aspect of ourselves. We also begin to find that elusive balance, so that we can integrate both the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine, together, becoming fully empowered and evolved humans.

The less we sideline these increasing feminine energies, the more we can utilize them to our own advantage. In the Irish story of Cuchulain, the Morrigan (triple Dark Goddess) tries to help the hero in so many ways. Again and again, he rejects her help, disrespecting her and preferring to do everything on his own. He suffers much pain as a result, for the Morrigan appears in disguise, sometimes attempting to give him strength or guidance, sometimes seeking her vengeance. Each time, his stubborn pride rejects her until — too late — he sees it’s her. Each time, he says, “If I had known it was you, I would have acted differently.”

Sometimes he would have fought her harder; sometimes he would have softened. The specific reaction matters less than his sense of regret at not recognizing with whom he was dealing. Information helps us to respond appropriately in each moment. We need to clear our perspective in order to see clearly in the Shadow. As we invite more of the Divine Feminine into our lives, we learn to befriend that energy. We learn to trust forgotten, yet powerfully loving parts of ourselves. Only then does the terrifying Crone transform into the Divine Mother capable of birthing our beautiful Virgin world.

Here’s Lee:

    Ohhh, patriarchy, you have had your day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gIec4NVPOUk#!

    Illinois Rep explodes on House floor … sad thing is watching the other Reps, who are either smug, uncomfortable or asleep. Wake up, world … Sovereignty is coming…… will we welcome it, or have so many “bad” things forced on us that we finally claim it for ourselves?

    We can have the loving feminine, or we can have the monster Shadow Feminine … which do we choose? How much do we love ourselves? Do we love ourselves enough to allow a peaceful transmutation, or will we “force” more chaos on ourselves as cleansing? Interesting times, indeed.

    Thank you for this post! Do you have any thoughts or suggestions about how to know when it’s time to be softer and when it’s time to fight harder so as to honor and not disrespect this dark goddess energy? How do we effectively clear our perspective?

    You’re welcome! I will be writing more about this in coming weeks. I am presently “translating” some of the deepest, darkest, scariest fears our world faces at this moment into “practical,” “symbolic” yet also tangible steps people can take in daily life in order to engage those Shadow energies in safe, effective ways, so that the nightmares don’t play out externally. It’s taking awhile to come up with the list, which includes things like drone killings, dictatorships, indefinite detention, the decay of Western civilization, nuclear war, RFID chipping for “health”care … you get the drift … 😉 The challenge is how to bring elements of this energy back into a place of honor so that it doesn’t need to be experienced as “Fate” disguised as the Dark Goddess dancing on her dead … Fun times, eh?
