Lilith is an ancient Sumerian Queen of Heaven. She represents feminine power. Below is a poem by Amy Sophia Marashinsky that describes her and some thoughts on feminine power. There is a negative sense of feminine power especially when it comes to our beauty, our sexual nature, our creative energy. Often we are taught that to use allure, beauty, the sweet smile or big eyes is not fair or appropriate in business and life. Yet animals do it, children do it so why can't woman. We all use our ways to get what we want and need in life. I am not so sure that any of it is wrong or unfair if we are not hurting others.
Sexual, creative, spiritual and healing energy are all the same thing. It is just a matter of the ends used with this energy and where we put it. There are many ways to use creativity to get our end goals met. I get tired of the battle between woman about using beauty, allure, our feminine collaborative ways, our enticing voicing, our beauty to attract, our smile to lift and lighten others, what is wrong with all this? Why do we have to use mental processes, thinking ways, intelligence and know it all mindsets to be considered powerful? That is great use of masculine power and we use it. But we can also use our feminine power and in fact it gets us farther than the other for we are woman. Using all tools and gifts seems more brilliant.
Sexual energy, creative energy is a gift of woman. We have an allure, we seduce for biological reasons. Men have physical power for biological reasons. They use that for themselves. We can use our way for ourselves as well. It is different for men and woman. It is perfect that way and I am tired of all the movements that constantly bombard us with mental ways of improvement and growth that are very masculine. Feminine ways of growth and improvement are equally important for the end goal is for a different gender. We can cultivate nourishing energy and men can cultivate power energy. It is different and supposed to be that way. We can cultivate both. It is important that we do for our blend is unique and important. I am bored with all this cultivation of masculine and rarely any feminine.
It is exhausting as a woman. Constantly being told to do things in a way that often in counter intuitive and counter productive to our body. Our true power is in embracing ourselves, our gifts unique to us as woman and cultivating them. It is not mental ladies. Yes we have mental but we are emotional and intuitive. We learn the world, move in it and use this energy in more health and flowingness. This is feminine power and it is equally powerful and equally fair. Lets get on board with this together. It is our genders gift to humanity!
I dance my life for myself.
I am whole
I am complete
I say what I mean
and I mean what I say
I dance the dark and the light
the conscious and the unconscious
the sane and insane
and I speak for myself
with total conviction
without regard for how I might look
all the parts of myself
flow into the whole
all my divergent selves unite as one
I listen to what needs to be heard
I never make excuses
I feel my feelings deeply and profoundly
I never hide
I live my sexuality to please myself and pleasure others
I express it as it needs to be expressed
from the core of myself
from the wholeness of my dance
I am female
I am sexual
I am power
I am greatly feared.
