Surrender yourself into the Temple Fires
that all untruths of mind, body, heart and spirit
may be burned away
alchemically purifying and dissolving illusion
until you remember yourself as Divine
The Divine Feminine
We are at a new threshold for humanity as the Divine Feminine energy is fully rising on the earth in a way that hasn’t happened for thousands of years.
The ancient spiritual practise of Tantra honours women, as the embodiment of the Divine Feminine. The Divine Feminine is integral to us all because we are composed of both masculine and feminine energy. In Tantra these energies are known as Shiva, the Divine Masculine and Shakti, the Divine Feminine. The left side of the body relating to the feminine and the right side, the masculine.
The Divine Feminine or sacred feminine or Christed Feminine is also referred to as Mother Earth, the Great Godess of many names and many qualities – Isis, Ishtar, Sekhmet, Kali, Durga, Mother Mary, Bridgid, Hathor and many more. Many ancient Matriarchal cultures believed and still do, that Mother Earth gave birth to the whole of existence and continues to create, giving birth to ideas, inspiration, projects and life itself with every breath we take. The Divine Feminine energy in the aspect of Mother is unconditionally loving, nurturing, nourishing, grounding and eternal. In her aspect of Warrioress the Sacred Feminine is fiery, powerful, untamed, creatress and destroyer of life as witnessed in the monthly life and death cycle of the menstrual cycle. In her aspect of Lover she is sensual, sexual, erotic, sexy, playful and juicy.
It takes the pure presence of the Divine Masculine to hold space, witness without judgement, provide protection, safety and security for the Divine Feminine to fully dance in her power.
Ancient cultures were often Matriarchal, which was overthrown and became patriarchal for many thousands of years. What is needed is a balance between both of these poles for the earth to come into balance as is happening now. In ancient history when both these poles come into balance Tantra was born, which explains why Tantra is flowering and growing now. The Divine Feminine is the primary force and is being supported by the Divine Masculine.
The Temple Priestess is the embodiment of the Sacred Feminine and the Divine Goddess. Her calling is to serve love and the highest good of all. She radiates love, light and magnetic energy and her path is to awaken and initiate others in the path of love. Traditionally the Temple Priestess is an initiator, a catalyst for those on the spiritual path, connecting the human to the sacred, and teaching how the union of sex and meditation can be a gateway to enlightenment.
The Temple Priestess works in a sacred and honouring way, as a channel for the divine principle of love and a conduit for the sacred fire of Kundalini. Alchemically stoking this inner fire in the temple of our bodies she burns away conditioning, untruths, misperceptions and false beliefs we have about ourselves, and our bodies, and realigns us to our deepest truth, were we know ourselves as divine. She offers opportunities for initiates to experience a state of inner communion where body, heart, soul and spirit are in harmony within the individual and with the Divine.
The Temple Priestess honours the natural cycles, the life-giving power, and the deep intuition of her body. She treats her body as a temple of the soul, feeding it nourishing, healthy foods and anointing it with healing, sensual oils, cleansing it energetically to stay in alignment with the Divine.
Called to this work by a longing to be of service, the Temple Priestess has trained in the Tantric sensual arts and deep meditation in this lifetime and previous lifetimes. In many ancient cultures, there were temples devoted to worship and honouring of the goddess of love, where sacred temple fires burned with prayers, healing herbs and offerings. In these temples, sacred priestesses gave healing, transformation, and spiritual guidance to seekers. These Temple Priestesses were honoured and revered as the embodiment of the Divine Feminine, emissaries of the Goddess, and held the potential for the spiritual liberation of seekers. Access to the feminine mysteries was a sacred journey, entered into with great respect and honouring. These priestesses were a holy conduit for those seeking enlightenment.
The Temple Priestess follows guidance from her intuition, spirit guides, the divine, and her body and senses and may journey for an answer to your concern. She embraces all desires, needs, and longings and transforms confusion in to clarity, pain into healing, and problems into understanding and learning. She helps us uncover the deepest truth of ourselves which transcend the mind and delve into the inner world of feeling, intuition, unconscious beliefs and the deeper dimensions of life.
