Lets start with the word "Divine", what does it mean? Well if you google it, the first definition that comes up is this... Divine, definition; of or relating to "a god", especially the "Supreme Being". In this definition you will see that relating to "a god" (not capitalized), reflects that there could be more than one "god", perhaps even "gods AND goddess's"... or, on the contrary, that there is only one God or what is called a "Supreme Being". And even then, God or Supreme Being is capitalized, where the idea that there is more then one god is not.
So, with that being said, where does "Divine Femininity" even come into play? For so long, even since the dawn of time, we have been conditioned to believe that there is nothing divine about the feminine whatsoever, and that only the masculine can be denoted as divine. It is also believed that women were solely created in order to serve men in this existence. However, that could only work in a realm where we only live on/in a plane of "duality": (ie, right/wrong, up/down, day/night, etc...) however, being that there are "many dimensions" in our "multi-dimensional universe", this concept doesn't work out so well. So for someone (men) to try and force it to work, makes it even more difficult to manifest into actual reality.
Lets put it this way, we are "humans" first and foremost, not just men and/or women. We encompass both male and female hormones and therefore are NOT just one or the other gender. This is where "sex" comes into play... because most people feel the NEED to connect sexually with the "perceived" opposite sex in order to feel the connection that they believe they are lacking in themselves. We unknowingly long for, desire, and yearn for "UNION" between the masculine and the feminine energies so that we can feel “at one” with the universe, the place in which (y)our soul or spirit came from in the first place. And that is why having sex is like "going home" to the Divine Source of ALL Creation. So to make one gender "less-then" or "inferior" to the other is a dangerous game for those who choose to partake in that illusion.
Conditioning runs DEEP in the entire world, not just here in America. There are probably not to many places where "humans" can just be "humans" and are not expected to fulfill their traditional gender roles. According to wikipedia, "a gender role, also known as a sex role, is a social role encompassing a range of behaviors and attitudes that are generally considered acceptable, appropriate, or desirable for people based on their actual or perceived sex. Gender roles are usually centered on conceptions of femininity and masculinity, although there are exceptions and variations. The specifics regarding these gendered expectations may vary substantially among cultures, while other characteristics may be common throughout a range of cultures. There is ongoing debate as to what extent gender roles and their variations are biologically determined, and to what extent they are socially constructed.
So lets take a look at some of the "perceived" roles of a girl, woman, lady, female. Generally speaking, from day one, females are conditioned to dress, talk, act and live their lives according to the stereotype's of that of a female. Females are taught to behave in certain ways that make them distinctively feminine, such as not talking to loudly, only speaking when spoken to, doing as they are told and not questioning a males authority, wearing their hair long as apposed to men who wear their hair short, wearing a dress, as apposed to men, who wear pants (thus the saying, "who wears the pants in the family"?)... and on and on it goes. Though these gender norms are shifting and changing as humanity grows and evolves, there is still an undercurrent that can be felt far and wide. And especially in today's society where social media platforms such as the #metoo movement and other feminist movements are making it quite clear that women no longer wish to be treated as submissive, subservient, sexual objects, only put upon this earth to serve men's wants, desires, fantasies, longings and needs.
However, because we are creatures of habit and because we don't always know how to move out of, or away from these, “stereotypes”, "gender role's" and "societal norms", we tend to stay in them and act them out to the best of our abilities, not always knowing or even understanding why we do it. We just blindly go about our business, doing what our parents, teachers and religious institutions, taught us to do. And as well, are we not also influenced by television, movies, magazines, news papers and advertising? Its very difficult to find "OURSELVES" when we are constantly being bombarded by outside stimuli telling us how we “should be”. So as human women, we do whatever we have to do in this world in order to survive. We wear makeup, style our hair, put on sexy clothes (including low cut dresses, stockings, lingerie, and high heels) in order to attract a mate to procreate with, because, THAT, after-all is what were supposed to be doing, right? The answer to that question (in my humble opinion) is NO!!! However, being that we have this undeniable biological need to survive, most women have learned to utilize this power in order to get what they think they want. This is what I call “TOXIC FEMININITY”! But using our sexuality to manipulate others into getting what we think want is NOT a healthy pattern to adopt. Its nothing less the selling our souls to the devil.
We have betrayed our own hearts, souls and spirits in order to survive. We have lost touch with our purpose and the meaning of life in general. We have given in, given up, and given our power away for way to long. We don't even know how to "feel our own feelings" anymore, let alone "ask for what we need" in order to “thrive”... not just survive. You can tell the difference between “Divine Femininity” and “Toxic Femininity” just by observing her actions, listening to her words and feeling her energy. Toxic Femininity is usually very shallow and only concerned with things like material possessions, financial security, physical appearance, power over others, ego gratification, status, competition, winning, jealousy, etc.. you get the picture right? Divine Femininity is only concerned with things like self-love and self-care in the form of diet, exercise, and taking care of her health and well-being in oder to “feel” good: mentally, emotionally, and psychologically as well as physically. Divine Femininity is also concerned with the health and well-being of others as well as her own. She is kind, caring, loving, nurturing, empathic and compassionate. She is tender yet, stern in her convictions. She is determined to make the world a better place though displaying the feminine qualities of love, kindness, tenderness, compassion and concern for herself AND others. Yet, she also has a strong sense of self that she is not willing to discard in order to please others or fulfill others needs without sacrificing her own. She is humble and vulnerable and has the ability to open her heart as well as her mind to understand herself and others. She is a force to be recked with. She is unwavering when it comes to things like justice, balance, and harmony... not only in “her world” but in the “WHOLE world”. She see's humanity as her family and wants to heal it, love it, and nurture it back to the wholeness that is was always meant to be. She is a “GOD-DESS” in the truest sense of the word. She is Divine Femininity personified!
