While conducting one of my teaching sessions this afternoon (on my A Book of Spiritual Wisdom for all days) I had a realization I want to share with everyone.
I have mentioned before that now is a time of deepening change. We are going from a materialistic existence to a more spiritual existence. This is bringing up much fear.
It has been my assumption for several years that the masculine energies (seeking control to keep things running, trying to protect, etc.) have been on top of us all for quite a long time now, and that time is ending. Feminine energies (healing, creativity, mothering, etc.) are now rising. We need both, of course, but we need both of these energies to be BALANCED. Not only within the world but within ourselves as well. The only way for these energies to balance now is for the masculine energies to fall downward and the feminine energies to rise upward - so that there can be a meeting and blending and balancing.
This is what is happening.

Not only is there fear coming from the falling of the masculine energies, there is also fear rising as the feminine energies rise: fear is what has kept the masculine energies in control and fear is what has kept the feminine energies held down.

Think about this....

Fear manifests its energy in many ways: physical sickness, emotional problems, abandonment issues, loss of material properties, and on and on. We have to REMIND ourselves on a daily basis that during this time, fear is all around and we have to DEAL WITH OUR OWN in ways that will make us stronger.
Seek the source of your fear- talk about it - write about it - replace it with spiritual faith that all is as it should be - and all is changing. Do not fear change - it is one of the certainities of our human lives.
Pray daily that all is working toward the good of the WHOLE. Never forget we are all interconnected.


  1. I like that writing Mari Jo. The only thing I would add is that the opposite of fear is love and as we learn to love ourselves and others we let go more and more of the fear. It's a process as you say.

  2. Thank you, Helen, for this important addition!

  3. Great post. Fear can do two things--it can motivate change or it can immobilize. As a country, I feel that right now we are immobilized because of fear of a new direction. I believe the new direction would be a positive one, as a whole, and this manifests as the feminine recognizing her power and knowledge that we are not an inferior gender. I could go on and on....

  4. I agree with you, Tammy. Thanks for sharing!!
