FEMININE JOURNEY TO SELF-LOVE AND EMPOWERMENT

Published November 18, 2020 by tindertender

She’s coming into her power…

The more she treated him like a king the more he treated her as his slave, She couldn’t understand this because she thought that if she gave him everything… putting him before her, he would crown her as his queen, but what she didn’t realize was that he wanted someone full of her “self” not emptied of her “self”, someone that would bring forth the hunter, the warrior and the hero in him, someone who’s respect needed to be earned. Instead she brought forth the exploiter, the betrayer and the abuser in him. She felt justified in feeling victimized and she wallowed in this murky swamp with her finger pointing in the wrong direction feeling falsely vilified in her suffering, feeling falsely supported by the sympathy of her friends…

It took her several rounds with different partners and a great deal of pain before she finally got it, “her external relationships were always mirroring back to her, her internal relationship with herself”. This was the relationship that she was being called to feed and nurture.

Her “Aha” moment came when she realized that it wasn’t the external king that she needed to bow down to but the royal queen within herself. She’s sitting on her throne now, it’s new and alien to her so she hasn’t quite relaxed completely into the sumptuous velvet cushion, but she’s aware of who she is and she’s determined to rule her own kingdom.

She now knows what she wants and she’s not willing to compromise…
She’s not willing to sell herself in order to be verified, She’s verifying herself…
She’s filling her own cup with self loving so she’s not ravenous for his…
She’s creating boundaries where they are needed and opening what was closed from fear…
She’s holding back some, she’s no longer so blindly eager to please…
She’s giving but keeping enough of herself to serve the queen that she is.

The suitors are lining up, they are respectful because her presence commands that respect…

She’s a woman who is discovering her royal, “Divine feminine” blood line and she’s stepping up to who she truly is.

Medusa

Published October 7, 2020 by tindertender

“Medusa teaches us that we have the right to defend ourselves. So often we are taught that we need to put up with the actions of others in a quiet way, demurely accepting what others would put upon us. She shows us that we need to stand our ground when someone would do us harm. We are not here to quietly accept the intentions of others. We have the right to be safe.

Medusa tells us to know our power and to honor the gifts that swim within our veins, even though sometimes it may feel like more of a curse than a blessing. She brings us the wisdom of the snake, of transformation and of rebirth. She asks that we too hold up the mirrored shield towards those that would wish us ill and reflect back upon them what they have created.

Medusa reminds us that there will always be those who will spit venom at us, in word and deed. That does not make them right. We are not here to be the plaything of others. We are Sacred Priestesses of the Divine. And we will not back down.”

A Woman

Published September 28, 2020 by tindertender

For all the ladies to remember & men to understand….

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…….

An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”

The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”

She must function on all kinds of situations,

She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time,

Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart,

She must do all this with only two hands,

“She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day”

THE ANGEL was impressed “Just two hands…..impossible!

“And this is the standard model?”

The Angel came closer and touched the woman

“But you have made her so soft, Lord”.

“She is soft”, said the Lord,

“But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.”

“Can she think?” The Angel asked…

The Lord answered. “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.”

The Angel touched her cheeks….”Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her”

“She is not leaking…it is a tear” The Lord corrected the Angel…

“What’s it for?” Asked the Angel….. .

The Lord said. “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”…

This made a big impression on the Angel,

“Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything.

A woman is indeed marvellous”

Lord said, “Indeed she is.

She has strength that amazes a man.

She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.

She holds happiness, love and opinions.

She smiles when she feels like screaming.

She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.

She fights for what she believes in.

Her love is unconditional.

Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life”

The Angel asked: “So she is a perfect being?”

The lord replied: “No. She has just one drawback

She often forgets what she is worth.”

SHE On The Tip Of Her Tongue

Published September 28, 2020 by tindertender

“It’s just that you’re not that feminine.”

I beg to differ.

I’m feminine like a thunderstorm.

Feminine like the glint of a falcon talon.

Feminine like an ancient redwood.

Feminine like the orange glow of a grizzly bear in the sunset.

Feminine like a wolf on the hunt.

Feminine like decaying bones.

Feminine like the eye of an old whale.

Feminine like a roaring river.

Feminine like a sheer cliff overlooking a forest.

Feminine like a wildfire.

Feminine like a desert wind.

Feminine like a battle cry.

And yes.

Within my stones and bark and fur and fierce slit irises … I am as soft and enveloping as any woman who’s blood ever beat red.

This is the Sovereigness.

I am her.

We are her.

We are an age of woman who has come in, representing the medicine of the Wilds.

We are not built to actualize your sense of masculinity through your traditional idea of femininity.

We are built to bring in the voice of our Mother.

Which is why Earth herself screams in our veins.

So, if what you really mean is, “Your femininity is overwhelming”,

Then I understand.

It is to me, too.
