Have You Ever Wondered What Is Behind the Oppression of Our Feminine Side? Inelia Benz

In case you missed it, here is my latest article. You can also share it or read it online here:

Have you wondered what is behind the oppression of our feminine side?
image

It’s easy to fall into the victim/aggressor cycle when we think about the oppression of our feminine side. Not only the suppression of our own, personal feminine traits, whether we are men or women, but the physical and often brutal oppression of women and feminine men around the world.

It’s easy to fall into rage, anger, frustration, fear and hopelessness when we open our eyes and look around to what is happening all around us. How we tell our boys to “be men”, and not cry, run, laugh, play “like a girl”. How we program our girls to be passive, helpless, submissive, beautiful, and compete for the attention of men (which until recently, and in many countries still, is vital to their physical survival and the survival of their children).

The oppression of women did not come about coincidentally, or through the survival of the fittest. It is a program that has been brutally imposed by all of us, on all of us, for thousands of years now. And it’s coming to an end.

If you are familiar with my work, you will know that I will tell you “you are an eternal divine being, powerful beyond measure, the Creator of this reality”. Know that this is true. At this time, we are, some of us are, on a bridge between a reality where the suppression of women was necessary to keep a certain light/dark paradigm alive, and a reality where that paradigm, the old paradigm, is no longer in existence. All we need to do, is become conscious of various key aspects, or anchors, that keep the old paradigm real, and decide to dissolve them.

By becoming conscious of where we hold those anchors in our own energy fields, our own minds, our own bodies, our own belief systems, we become the pioneers, the path-makers, for the collective dissolution of one of the most insidious and enslaving programs known to man.

We can recognize these programs, which are usually related to our beliefs about men or women and in particular sex, when we feel, think or sense an emotion, thought or feeling that is “not allowed”. Something we automatically suppress. Something we have been taught is evil, bad, naughty, not allowed. Something which, at the same time, has been placed in our bodies of energy by exposure, design, or purpose. It keeps us from expressing our full power, because we become afraid that this particular thing will surface when we are powerful and cannot be stopped.

But here’s the thing: humans are one of the few animals on the planet that do not react from programs alone. We are one of the few species that can want, think, feel, desire, and be programmed to do something in reaction to an external stimuli, but CAN CHOOSE to do something else instead.

And when we allow ourselves to feel, think, sense, desire, or fear, whatever it is, but not react to it, and instead simply OBSERVE that energy in ourselves, the program DISSOLVES.

I invite you to observe yourself in the mirror, and imagine, believe and know, that you are the opposite sex to which your physical body is presently in, for at least 10 minutes every day for a week. I also invite you to observe someone close to you, whether a spouse, work mate, family member, or friend, and for at least ten minutes KNOW they are the opposite sex to what their body is. You may need to start with a couple of seconds to begin with, and build it up to ten minutes in both instances.

Another exercise is to read the next sentence and watch your reaction to it: “Inelia Benz is a powerful, highly influential, and fearless woman”. What do you feel? Think? Sense?

What about these combination of words: “powerful woman”, “highly influential woman”, “fearless woman”.

Now read the following and watch the difference (if any) “The Dalai Lama is a powerful, highly influential and fearless man”. Any differences?

Now the word combinations: “powerful man”, “highly influential man”, “fearless man”.

Interesting huh?

As you do these exercises, watch and observe your reactions, whether emotional, mental, egoic, physical, or energetic. Keep a journal and be amazed.

When we move out of the programming, we can take action at a social level. The oppression of our feminine side results in more than the subjugation of women, it is also in part the reason why the majority of human beings accept war, abuse of animals and lack of empathy toward living beings and the planet as a whole by men and women alike.

When one awake individual (YOU) dissolves his or her programs of oppression, she or he creates an energetic map, a resonance, that starts activating the feminine side of hundreds of other individuals. And when we act at a social level in the redefinition and treatment of women, animals, and other brutalized beings, we do it from a place of fearlessness and impeccable integrity which is undefeatable. We no longer “save” them, or add to their victimhood by feeling they are victims. Yet we literally stop what is happening because it does not fit into our chosen reality. How we do this? It’s up to us! We rally and organize with others, and use the social and personal tools at our disposal. But FIRST we liberate our own selves, our own bodies, energy field, minds and emotional bodies of those enslaving programs.

Let’s put our egoic survival instincts on hold for the next few months, and lets dare to act in breaking this link in the chain of enslavement. Let’s let our feminine side out of her cage! What do you say? Are you game?

In joylightlove,

Balsamic Moon Phase: release, transform, heal, forgive, renew

Moon in Capricorn

Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi

A re-enchantment of the world transpires today! Early this morning the Sun released one of it’s most powerful flares of the solar cycle – an X4.9 class flare. Interestingly, this flare is courtesy of one of the longest-running sunspots. Sunspots usually last a couple of weeks, but this sunspot has been active since January! It was first named 1944, then 1967, and now 1990. (Each time it transits the Sun it is re-numbered.)

This massive blast serves to close-out the past astrological year like melting a wax seal over a letter or a lead seal over a box. At the same time, it ushers in brand new energy. But the wise Sabian (Gnostic) symbols describe the energy much better than I ever could. The position of the Sun when the flare was released is the degree that says “illuminated by a shaft of light, a large cross lies on rocks surrounded by sea and mist.”

The flare is the shaft of light. It is up to each of us to determine what “a large cross lies on rocks surrounded by sea and mist” means for us. Ultimately, are your hopes dashed or do you see a hopeful sign? Is it both?

The energy from this flare will produce dramatic, out-of-the ordinary events today. We want to remain centered and let cool heads prevail. It may be difficult to just sit back and observe. Action may be required, so do the right thing. Remember that the Moon will be on the move to line up in sky exactly opposite the Black Moon. So shadow sides are inclined to come out today, especially since this is the last contact the Moon will make with the Black Moon during the Black Moon’s last few days in Cancer.

Themes of self-worthiness or unworthiness, rejection and acceptance flow through the energy. There is a certain energy signature that can cause us turn to away from “the matrix” (the illusory world) in disgust.

The Balsamic Moon phase does not enter until later this evening, so we still have time to close-out the old energy. Lingering feelings of regret, grief, failure, and disappointment belong there. We can use the extreme light of today’s solar flare to burn it away.

Sabaoth (the Sun) and Sophia (the Earth) are in the final throes of a great plan to correct matters. Today’s solar blast is a great gift of rectification. Sometimes being corrected hurts. Sometimes it is a great relief. Sometimes it is both. The question today is what is being illuminated for you from this shaft of light?

BREAKING: Earth First! Disrupts Florida Power and Light Company

Thank you for posting this! And much thanks and gratitude to those brave souls involved in the lockdown as well! We have better, cleaner energy technology that is being suppressed in irder to maintain profit margins. People should not have to get arrested to stop these filthy dinosaurs being built. Check out Nicola Tesla for 100year old stuff and my recent reblog from Hopegirl for the latest tech now being released as open source plans to prevent the standard suppression tactics. Carbon loading in a state that will be underwater due to it is mind boggling level of stupid!

Encanta la Ciudad Vieja de San Juan~

Thank you Cindy! If a travel magazine is not paying you to be there-they **should be**!!! I get more than enough hot weather here in St Petersburg but these luscious images make me want to jump on a plane:-) I am seriously going to print these out and refer to them when I get past the primer coat stage in painting my house. Coming home to that sort of cheery colour would be ideal:-)

Love the Old City of San Juan Puerto Rico!

It reminds me of an old walled European city.

But with larger American cars,

Old San Juan was founded in 1506 by Spain and some of the old buildings, need to be rennovated, which would be so much fun to do!

Others are meticulously well maintained.

When I come home everything looks beige by comparison.

Sometimes Resting IS Progress!

Thank you! So true and so often forgotten!

Cauldrons and Cupcakes

Image from 1ms.net Image from 1ms.net

“Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness. They grow in rest.”
~ Mark Buchanan

I’ve slept away another day.

Perhaps I’ll do the same with this day too.

But that’s okay.

Resting begets healing. In repose we consolidate knowledge and even our muscles use the time to store memories. Resting rebuilds strength. It allows us to rally so that we may press on with renewed vigour. Rest creates that quiet receptive space where we can pay attention to our Muse when she whispers wisdoms and inspirations in our ear. It is while we rest that we more easily hear the voices of Guides and Angels.

How long have you been fighting this urge to slow down, to pace yourself, to stop for a moment and catch your breath?

Pushing on when you are exhausted just leads to more chances of…
