Why She’s Worth More Than Rubies

RubyHave you ever heard of the saying that “The heart of the home is in the kitchen”? Well, my Mother was always the heart of our home. And  now that I am a Mother, I know that the kitchen is just the kitchen. Add a Woman…and now you’ve got a home. It’s the spirit and energy of a Woman that is the heart of the home. The kitchen comes alive with her in it creating love…nurturing. Her heart is at work in every crack and crevice.

I AM IN LOVE!

imagesCALM4F43Often times I am overwhelmed with the love I have for my children. I value them and motherhood so much and I hope that loving energy flows to them, unfiltered, just as I feel it. Being a mother has given me an outlet for loving that is so endearing. And the love that you see in a child’s eyes draws upon that love even more. I AM IN LOVE!

Children allow you to love as you’ve always wanted to, but were afraid to for fear of being rejected and hurt. But, that won’t happen with children. They love you back, even when you’re not the best parent, they love you anyway.

As a Counselor, I am a witness to the resiliency of neglected and abused children. They still love! They continue to seek the acceptance and love of their abusive and neglectful parents. CHILDREN ARE MANIFESTED LOVE and I AM IN LOVE…with LOVE.

Sitting here today, I am thankful that God has blessed me twice with the experience of carrying and nurturing life. I am in awe of the fullness of the blessings God has bestowed upon me. I wish that everyone could see children for the blessings that they are, an opportunity to love and be loved; to teach and be taught; to nurture and be nurtured.

I AM IN LOVE!

Woman…Man’s Achilles Heel and His Healing

Legend has it that Achilles was the bravest hero of the Trojan war, according to Greek mythology. When Achilles was born, his mother, Thetis, tried to make him immortal by dipping him in the river Styx. As she immersed him, she held him by one heel and forgot to dip him a second time so the heel she held could get wet too. Therefore, the place where she held him remained untouched by the magic water of the Styx and that part stayed mortal or vulnerable. Achilles fought heroically against the Trojans, but was killed by Paris,  who shot him in the heel with an arrow from behind.  To this day, any weak point is called an “Achilles Heel”. We also refer to the strong tendon that connects the muscles of the calf of the leg with the heel bone as the “achilles tendon”.

WOMAN POWER! MAN’S FALL???

WOMAN POWER  ~  MAN-HATING  ~  WOMANIFESTING  ~  BRA BURNING  ~  LESBIAN ~  FEMINISTA

These are some terms used to describe attributes of feminists and the feminist movement.  And to be honest, I had never really given it much thought. I never thought enough about it to be for it or against. Maybe it is because I’m not really big on putting myself in boxes; of tying myself to one belief, one religion or another. I tend to look for truth anywhere, in all people, movements and religions.

However, a couple of weeks ago I found myself in the midst of what felt like a “feminine wrath”. I made a comment that seemed to take the side or support of patriarchy and its history of abuse and or neglect of women. And that really wasn’t my intention. But, never the less, my comment was met with “passionate advocacy” for the plight of women. The reaction that I received from my comment provoked deep thoughts within me about what feminism is and what it means to be a feminist. If felt weird being in that position. Afterall, I’m a woman too and I’ve experienced the double standards as well. Women have had a hard way to go and our oppressors, unfortunately, have been our fathers, our brothers and our lovers. But somehow, I don’t feel the same way. I mean, I don’t feel contempt as many feminist seem to feel towards men.

With a bit of research into the feminist movement, its history and various classifications and characteristics, I’ve found that the expression of feminist beliefs and temperament are diverse. Continue reading “WOMAN POWER! MAN’S FALL???”

Why Balanced Male Female Energy Is Important

Image Source: http://aaaummm.wordpress.com/category/practical-exercises/

This symbolism or concept of complementary opposites continues to present itself to me, making the significance and importance of the male/female energies evident. It is becoming very clear to me that these energies complement each other and depend upon the other for balance and creating a harmony that flows with the energetic flow of the universe. The more that I learn, the more in love I am with this magnificent duo! The fact that the male and female counterparts’ strength lies within their bond is so powerful and amazing, Divine and Godly. Apart, we are powerful, together we become a dynamic force!

In Western Philosophy, the concept of male female connectedness and complementary energy is found in the King James Bible, Genesis 2:21 -25, God takes one of Adams ribs and with it “made he a woman” and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man”. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

In Eastern Philosophy, the concept of pinyin, or yin yang as referred to in western society, literally means dark and light. It describes how polar opposites or contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent, giving rise to each other. Yes, exalting each other! This concepts of the interdependence of polar opposites lies at the origins of classical chinese science and philosophies; guides traditional chinese medicine and is the central principle for various chinese martial arts.
