“Spiritual communion with the Divine Feminine is an invitation to listen for Her message whispering in your ear the truth of who you are and why you are here.” The Path of Mended Wing: The Journey to Welcome the Divine Feminine into Your Life“, p.3 (Free E-Book)
The other night, as I was drifting off to sleep, that quote popped into my head and I thought, “That isn’t accurate! It is poetic, yes, but that’s not helpful if those reading this book are taking it literally.” So here is my clarification based on what I know to be true for me.
The presence of the Divine Feminine is experienced as a feeling, meaning it comes from within you. It is a heartfelt sense of knowing, of recognizing signs She is with you, showing you the way that’s best for you. Learning to recognize that “feeling” is key to trusting Her guidance.
The Divine Feminine Speaks Through Your Heart
To hear Her Wisdom, Divine Wisdom, you stop, look, and listen! When something is signaling you to pay attention:
- Give yourself time to sit a few minutes (stop),
- Ponder (look) at what is going on. Center yourself in your heart by opening to a feeling of love toward the situation. Invite an insight to see the circumstances from a different perspective.
- Then quiet your mind by focusing on your breath, inhaling and exhaling slowly. This is listening. Trust that you will receive direction on what is best for you and all concerned.
That being said, the key is to connect with the feeling of that “aha!” moment when the light goes on and you see the true picture. It may be during the time you sit listening, or later when you suddenly see an aspect of the situation you hadn’t noticed before. That is the Divine Feminine offering greater clarity. She speaks from your heart and you “sense” your next step with a confident inner knowing. It is a subtle shift within and that change in perspective makes all the difference. So yes, subtle, like a whisper, but emerging from your heart, not your ear.
The more you practice listening to your heart and recognizing the shift to greater clarity, the more you will encounter the presence of the Divine Feminine offering Her guidance. In my book, The ABC Path toward True Wisdom, I offer stories, reflections, and personal rituals to engage you in trusting your heart for the truth.
