BUILDING A CULTURE OF FEMININE EMPOWERMENT

A Seven Step Personal Transformation

Greetings, Poestess here, Cultural Transformation Catalyst, Educator & Poet on a mission to build a “Culture of Feminine Empowerment”, based on The Seven Keys to Life.

The Seven Keys unlock the feminine aspect of life. They are for the woman who has lived in the shadows of society who want to step into the light fully matured and co-create a “Culture of Feminine Empowerment” that regenerates society.

It is an inescapable tragedy to live in American under chauvinism, oppression, hostilities, and the current American educational system.

The best of us are hardened on a daily basis by the barrage of negativity we take into our lives. Our mental health has taken a battering. We hide the emotional scars behind anger, rage and brazen behavior. The Keys will empower you to heal the hurt not fully attended to in the inner recess of your mind.

We are the mothers in our community. Our undeveloped mental health often result in broken homes and high crime rate. Where does the anger and rage go, how is it expressed?

There was a time when I had nowhere to express my rage. It was unacceptable to express so I buried it in the inner recesses of my life. Left unchecked it festered in my mind. My talk today addresses the mental health of women. The story I tell resounds from the depths of my soul.

What needs to change in the world, what’s philosophically wrong with the world? It is the world of ideas and social relations that my talk today will come from.

It is a universal message of love that flows through me. That drives me into the darkest places, the unknown, the vast inner realm of human life. The unexplored territory where the source of life comes from; what you may call God and outside of yourself. I believe God lives in me. I have the power to access its’ wisdom and love.

I am a seeker after truth, knowledge and wisdom. Many generations before me left their trail. It is on their footprints that I now journey on. Join me as we elevate our lives and journey on ideas whose time has now come.

It is time to usher in a Culture of Feminine Empowerment and replace the dominant American culture of fear that leads to violence, separation and war.

I have spent the last twenty years of my life as an educator in public schools. The place I thought where ideas and freedom could live. What an illusion I now wake from. It is through poetry that I have found my voice smothered in the noise of the world.

We women are the foundation of society. It is upon our shoulders that humanity stand. We have the power to transform the world when we step into our full power as women. We know the power of the woman to hold together the family and community.

We have an obligation and responsibility to guide the world, from the deepest place within. It is here we can begin to build a strong inner life. I will guide you to that place with Seven Keys that unlock the unlimited feminine potential in your life.

I have discovered secrets as I walked through pages of books, sat with masters and learned of their ways. In quiet meditation the vast inner door opened to me. I walked in gently as a witness and like a child revealed all its’ secrets to me.

Years of compressing pain I held created a darkness that threatened to destroy me. But courage and faith was the light that helped me to look into the darkness and make it my friend. The anger and rage was where I hide my pain. I had to transform the pain into something of value or it would destroy me.

When I looked into the inner realm of my life, there was a light that revealed wounds in my life that I needed to heal. And like shadows they disappeared when I turned the light on.

The power of spirit can transform the pain in your life and heal with love and light. I have been to the darkest places and returned stronger and more confident of who I am and what I am to be in the world.

The last twenty-five years of my life were spent exploring ways to create value and discover how I was going to make a difference in the world. What I discovered about myself was hidden behind walls of anger and mistrust.

I made a decision as an eight year old child to stay home from church one Sunday morning. I asked my mother if my younger brother could stay with me. She told me no and if I stayed home I would be by myself.

When my mother left out the door, I felt abandoned and unloved, worthless and alone and felt no one cared. That one decision shaped my life. I felt like a victim. Anger was the wall I erected around myself to protect me from an imagined perpetrator.

Feeling like a victim, was the shadow that has haunted me for countless years. It is also the engine that drove me to discover the truth about my life.  It was a lonely path, but one that caused me to look inward for answers.

Through numerous self-help programs and over twenty years of introspection, I have learned to love myself and value my own voice which I found through Poetry.

I am formerly trained in Guidance and Counseling. I bring a love for Buddhist Psychology, a study of the mind and a gift for understanding the human spirit. I have a strong belief in the feminine spirit of love and compassion and the vast inner life yet to be opened to the world. I am committed to building a Culture of Feminine Empowerment based on The Seven Keys to Life.

As an educator for over twenty year. I have taught young children and adults; written curriculums and cultural arts programs. I have published two books of poetry and currently working on my third.

I have lead small groups and workshops, trained Camp Counselors and served five years in the Army Reserves where I was commissioned a Second Lieutenant. During those days in the military I gained a tremendous amount of training and experience in how to lead and inspire hope and courage.

This current book I am working one will put forward my Seven Keys to Life that will help you discover a source of Feminine Power. Life is a journey filled with hope, wonder and awe.

SOCIAL CONSTRUCT

A Seven Step Personal Transformation

I live with the idea that the world we live in thrives on the spoken word.

A social construct someone built with lies.

A male model of domination that does not work for me.

It is archaic and out of date.

Creating separation, violence and hate.

To separate people by race and sex is a manufactured way to rule.

A structure for human relationship that cannot hold.

Thin lines of lies expanded,

Now cracks have turned into gaping holes.

That include the whole of state.

Might and power worked in the past.

It no longer fulfills the need of a genuine community.

The Twenty-First Century demands another way.

A movement that surges towards a unified whole.

Receiving and expressing,

Dancing works, domination does not.

The Rhythm of Life.

A new model for Humanity.

A paradigm through which we can truly view life.

Built upon a shared partnership with life,

Instead of domination and unjust rule!

A VISION OF FEMININE EMPOWERMENT

A Seven Step Personal Transformation

Develop a new source of power!  

A latent potential in you !

The feminine aspect of life seeks peace and harmony, unlike masculine power that needs to control.

Feminine Power is fluid, like rushing water.That travels over rocks through cracks finding its’ way to the sea.

Not scheming, but flowing on its’ path, creating peace and harmony as it streams.

So the story goes; there was a time when women sat with one another and shared their visions and dreams…

Empowering and supporting one another as they realize their roles in community.

Women earned respected as living embodiments of beauty & creativity.

Deeply in tune with the inner world, women valued the outer forces of nature undeniably.

Women gathered and shared their practices and gifts, directed their skills into teachings that taught women to focus and increase their sensitivities.

Women knew that their responsibility was to maintain peace and balance in their homes and community…

That every thought and action had an impact upon…

Not only their life but the world that they found themselves in.                                                                                     Women reflect light and influence and maintain order for humanity.

Part of the training was to guide the community, develop, encourage and increase the feminine gifts of understanding, wisdom and transformation.

Women spent most of their time reading and writing and creating works of art that reflected their thoughts and dreams.

Modern women today are too caught up in the patriarchal mindset and suspicion to attend to the the inner world of being.

Women became alienated one from the other due to the pressures of a consumer culture and the outward measures of success.

Women lost touch with their purpose and power and so the decline of society.                                                             Today we restore the true meaning of what it is to be Feminine.

There is a power within that can break old pattern of relating; the quiet gentle strength that show up when you look in.

You can learn new ways to relate, first with yourself then the totality of humanity.                                                       Nurture yourself, the inner child that may not have been loved completely.                                                                  Take care of her. Return to a deeper part of thee.

Control your thoughts and evolve past old patterns of being, get rid of them like a worn out shoe, learn positive self-talk that generates a new reality.

There is another aspect of power; one that co-creates. STEP into an equal partnership with life3 and realize your destiny.

Trust life and align with the power within. BE at ease with not knowing, it’s quite impossible to know all the endless possibilities.

Connect with your inner guide and your deepest dreams.

You have power that can change the world, when you realize your mission in the larger scheme of things co-create as a partner with life.

ACTIVATE the support you have been missing.

Women empower one another and Co-create a Shared idea for Humanity.

Democracy in Action

AUTHENTIC SELF

New Millennium Poetry

AUTHENTIC SELF

There is this self-waiting to be discovered,

Wanting to reveal it-self to you.

There is this self,

Covered over by skin enclosed within you.

Beneath matter and time.

And the story you tell yourself.

There is this self-separate from the identity you cling to;

The wife, the mother, the doctor, the nurse,

The outer self that needs to control and feel superior to.

There is this powerful presence

Inside the tree,

With the potential to reach the sky,

Encoded in its’ DNA

The plan to grow, produce food and shelter humanity.

In the jungle, where ever it may be.

The tree needs sunlight and rain to grow.

If you fail to nourish the tree

It may never bear fruit.

Not fully reaching maturity.

You are a tree!!!

With a little love you will grow.

Because of the evolution of time

Your parents and society may not have

Been able to help you be free.

Everything that happened to bring you to the place.

A place where you are self-sufficient,

Able to take care of you.

What do you need to grow?

Love, faith and truth;

Healing that helps you to let go of things that

Stunt your growth.

That keep you from being that mighty tree.

Those limiting beliefs,

The poison you take into your body.

The evil that gnaw in your belly,

The pain you hold onto.

That which has hardened your heart

You show to the world.

Dig through the layers of the self,

To find the Diamond like self,

With its many facets that sparkle in the light.

You must step into the light,

Detach from the outer layer.

Let the sun illuminate all darkness in your life

You will discover

Your Authentic Self.

Building a Powerful Society of Women

Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, New Millennium Poetry

We sat around the fire, embers lighting the night sky, we crawled inside the lodge built of stone. Steam filled the air as water was poured on hot rocks. Our heart and sweat intermingled in the intense heat. Out poured emotions that had been bottled up. Each tear that flowed carried away a small measure of pain the body and emotion had been spent. Left was a clarity of mind, heart and soul. We could begin to fill life with the new story we would create.

Poetry: The Hope of Humankind

New Millennium Poetry

A paper by Wickrasinghe–
The Rhythm of Life
“Poetry can be defined as the state of mind that links the individual, society and the Universe.”
The invisible laws of the Universe, the laws of the ever-changing real world called human society, and the principles of the human heart all intermingle and Pulse together, unfolding a grand drama of life against the backdrop of infinite time and space.
He believes the Poetic Spirit opens the door into a world throbbing with the profound rhythms of this universal life and presses in on the very source of creative energy.
