I leave more intentional offerings at the lap of the sacred feminine of late.

Milk and honey, a song, and some sweets nestled at the rooted altar of my favorite Oak. Sometimes chocolate, a lullaby, or an empty bird's nest filled with bits of sea shells, rose petals, or a handful of sparkling stones.

As I contemplate the threads that brought me here, I untangle the yarn of an ancient story. It’s wound with wisps and bits of ancestral memory, bound up with other lifetimes of lost and found.

Revelations disrobe themselves in layers, flowering open, then closing, from bud to bloom to ground, and then back to the cosmic womb. A cyclical erotic dance of creation, serpentine energy shedding primordial skin, yoni mythologies crown, and archetypes of the Goddess are re-born.

The trance is breaking. Slowly women of the world are awakening. Unearthing the buried feminine from the inner tomb of their sacred second chakras. I feel an imminent shift somewhere on this horizon - a birth quake of epic proportions will bring us back to life.

The most oppressive spells cast by patriarchy cast the feminine out, shattering her in a thousand parts and banishing her to the darkest places, deep within our psyches.

These spells were cast through words, deeds, and stories- curses that dismissed her presence and relevance, denying her divinity. The defiling of her sanctuary temples including those of her own human form- reduced her to a shadow, her body uninhabitable- a long, cold, winter of mourning.

She disintegrated and disassociated, exiled parts of her, ghosted, for thousands of years. Through violations and defamation and a meteoric campaign of lies, violence, and propaganda - to survive, so wise, she fell deep into trance.

The spring of our human evolution rises with her resurrection, and the murmuring mythic hives hidden deep in the caves are stockpiled full of honeycomb, as the bee's hum again, leading her back home.

Each part I remember, as I run to greet her at the threshold, with a dandelion crown in my hair. My arms are full of love spilling over with succulents, bouquets of Ranunculus, joy, roses, and gratitude. I cover her flushed cheeks with kisses, my tears are salted with sweetness as I welcome each part in.

Happy Easter!
