WHAT IS HERSTORY, YOU ASK?
Herstory is a label for the feminine perspective of our collective stories. We have been ingrained with the masculine perspective of reality – polarized so far out of our natural intuitions with subjective dogmas such as good and bad, right and wrong – that we have nearly lost our connection to not only the Divine Mother, but to the Divinity in our own Sacred Right of motherhood. Each mother has been initiated into the mysteries of Life and Death through the state of Love. And it is she that is most apt to accurately recognize and re-birth this story through her very being. What will the feminine energy of The Age of Aquarius hold for humanity? What will be revealed through the rising awareness of Herstory and the archetypes that connect us through Time?
Herstory can no longer be ignored. Yes, this is that part of the story that we did not learn in school. That part of our story that occurred before the phrase: “Let there be Light” even existed in scripture. Long before the idea of History was even developed. We are going back to before the times of writing and record keeping, when we shared traditions orally, etching the stories deeply into our cellular memory courtesy of the fires we gathered ’round.
We have been taught who the winners of wars are, and the reasons that dictate this as so. We have been influenced by advertising and marketing campaigns, distracting us from just how close we are to reaching our greatest potentials – from within each one of us. Herstory inspires us to go within; to be not only impeccable, but self responsible with what we have created. Where one loses – we have all lost.
UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL
Not only am I an individual – I am also a link within my family, my community, my city, my country, my continent and any other label or box you can find. I am suggesting that we take our unified thought processes and stretch them across this globe we call Earth. I am ALL of those things – and you are too. We are many things. When you were born you were given your name, which is consequently your tool kit through this experience of Life. To your mother and father you are a daughter or a son, to your siblings you are a sister or a brother, to a teacher you are a student – we are always changing our roles in our moment to moment interactions with others. Each of those are meaningful in a different way – and you are all of them – and more!
We are all nested within a myriad of scripts and roles we have chosen to enact – as it should be for the greatest breadth of experience and potential Mastery in any given incarnation. You are ALL of these and you carry the potential to consciously or unconsciously fill in a gap and act in anyone’s stories, in any given moment. We truly are dynamic beings. When we realize that we actually exist within many boxes, we may see that we often shift in and out of them so seamlessly that we don’t even realize that we are doing it. This is something we are constantly doing without trying to do anything at all. We call this kind of Knowing “second nature”.
There exists an untold ‘magic’ we all possess that is so inherent that we don’t even recognize it for what it is worth. Magic. We are magical Beings. Shapeshifters extraordinaire. Take a deep breath and let that really sink in. We are magical Be-ings. This is why it is so important to remain authentic within the changing momentum of Time. Otherwise, just what kind of magic are you creating?
“Shapeshifting requires the ability to transcend your attachments, in particular your ego attachments to identity, and to who you are. If you can get over your attachment to labeling yourself and your cherishing of your identity, you can be virtually anybody. You can slip in and out of different shells, even different animal forms or deity forms.”
There are so many ways I can dream up to benevolently use this tool that we have now identified as shapeshifting. We can use this awareness to achieve greatness! Let’s explore this idea a little bit.
Have you put yourself in the shoes of The Other? Have you put yourself in the position of those that you were taught were the ‘bad guy’? And if you have, are they really that bad? As bad as you have been told, or as bad as you have told yourself? What can you find in common with The Other? Perhaps if we were looking at this particular perspective of Truth, wars would have been bi-passed and a plethora of innocent people would still be alive today. However, we are where we are. Everything is as it is. As it should be. A perfect reflection for where we collectively stand right now. If we ask ourselves these questions and take these leaps of awareness and allow ourselves to shapeshift to even momentarily become The Other, I know we can tell entirely new stories and create benevolent outcomes – together. Could this be what Herstory is all about? New perspectives open new pathways and allow us to live in and experience new paradigms. Why have we not done this before? Universally it seems to be known – THE TIME IS NOW!
All too often it just hurts too much to become The Other, and we a-void and divide ourselves in order to self preserve our own ego. But self preserving is not the same as Self preserving. In self preserving we tend to judge and use judgment to shift the focus of that pain onto someone or something else. I identify Self preserving as something a bit more refined and rather than the use judgment which opens the door to gossip about others, I would offer that discernment is used. I am speaking about shifting yourself, rather than shifting the focus when it is not convenient to your own agenda – an acquired art I am still attaining Mastery within. We truly are ALL things and In Self preserving you are going to use your awareness to allow yourself To Be that which you know in the future you will judge (based on your patterns – ancestrally and otherwise), rather than wasting your energy by fighting your actual becoming of all that is. If we are to become god-like; truly balanced beings, you must Allow yourself to become it rather than resist it by ‘Doing’ something. You can see on a larger scale, just why wars have broken out and why we have attempted to eliminate what hurts us. We want to Do something about it so we don’t realize just how much it hurts. Overall we don’t even want to understand why, leaving ourselves crippled with regards to changing the actual pattern. We never really tune into the frequency of our pain, nor that of The Other. In feeling this hurt of The Other, consequently you are provided with the gateway to attaining the freedom from having to continuously carry it unknowingly within ourselves. Rest assured it is always there until we learn to Love it within ourselves, and therefore within The Other – whichever may come first. Remember: Doing is masculine. Being is Feminine. We have been human doings long enough, it truly is time to learn to be a human being – for this is what our label is and most of us don’t live up to it very well. If at this time we are to see and know things from a different perspective, don’t we have stop and Be The Change, as Ghandi said? This involves shapeshifting consciously!
Whenever I limit myself to existing inside of any one box, without allowing any room to fully immerse within another box even if just for a moment of Time, I become limited by experience. If we are limiting ourselves, don’t be fooled by illusion, it is never ‘just us’ we bring limitation to. We are limiting the entire collective as well. For As Within, So Without. How you feel inside is automatically the pattern you perpetuate. When I was a young child I remember people being proud of having one career and working hard at that one thing for their entire lives. Even as a young child this seemed like a cage to me. Why would anyone want to do that? What if you changed your mind? Or wanted to try something else? Life seemed so limiting and boring at this rate of growth! Apparently I was not the only child asking these questions because as I grew up into a teen in high school, I remember hearing that people averaged a total of 2.4 careers in the span of a given lifetime. As a collective, in a matter of 10 years we had changed A LOT. And the next 15 years after that has of course increased yet again. People are able to take in and process more information in each day, and naturally they begin to crave more experience to create balance in their own lives. Instead of being so single-minded in focus (a product of dualistic thinking), we are becoming unified in focus which allows for any and all experience to become yours in any given moment. No veil exists within Unity Consciousness – The One IS The Other, and The Other IS The One. The Age of Limitation is breaking open to herald the abundant tidings of the Rising Dawn. Herstory will now be told. It is rising within all of us. New choices and new options that we never imagined possible will appear to just fall together. When we let go of resistance and learn how to allow our own becoming, things tend to fall together. When we allow our ego to dictate what needs to be done, things tend to fall apart faster than you are able to put them back together. In contrast, within the simple receptivity of being, we become One again.
In these moments of Time that we refer to as Ascension, you would think that these particular sentiments would hit home for many. As we compare our present explosion of information to previous moments in Time, we may notice some repeating patterns. This is where we, as a collective we can make our mark as a planet within a cosmic frame of reference. One must know both sides of the collective story in order not to repeat it. We can take stories like Atlantis, Rome, Egypt, etc. and other great and mythical civilizations, and compare them to the point we are at on Earth today. It has been said that Atlantis is rising again! We are well into The Age of Information now, and I ask, why did these ancient civilizations fall? Were there any commonalities between them? Unless we alter the content of the patterns by consciously making changes – the same will come of us.
