The Emerging Power and Grace of the Feminine for Healing a Planet in Crisis by Karen Rae Wilson

 Karen Rae Wilson, Spiritual Visionary, Singer and  International Leadership and Purpose Consultant

What does it mean to be a spiritual and empowered feminine presence in the world today?

What is the role of women in transforming the world?

How do we include what is ancient, mystical and mysterious in our lives and be a force for change in the world?

How do we balance work, family and creativity in the fast paced lives most of us are living?

In ancient times women would gather at the well to commune with each other and to draw forth the living waters from the Earth. The well served as a chalice for the community. It was there that the rhythm and ritual of the community was inspired and created. Through prophecy and vision the spiritual guidance for Creation was shared.

The role of the feminine in its most elevated presence has always been to inspire the highest ideals of society.
Now, more than ever it is essential to restore the power and beauty of the Feminine Vibration on Earth…and within ourselves - to bring back a sense of love, caring and compassion for the human family as we navigate the coming times of transformation and change.

We must begin to develop a global paradigm based on caring not only for what is profitable but for what is right – for ourselves, our children and the Earth – to invest in what has long term value for all the children and the generations to come. 2014 will call us into planetary service and alignment – to create more equality for all races and cultures.

Many of the issues that are facing us are profound and far reaching – global warming, ice caps melting, entire cultures being lost to war and aggression – with the preservation of the Great Mother, our Earth hanging in the balance.

We have a whole generation of young people wondering whether they still have a future to invest in. What an incredible time to use our giftedness to light up the world – to be come leaders in the emerging global ethics for humanity.

 This coming decade will mark a change in our definition of success and power. We have been given a unique opportunity to rise above the chaos of our times and be energized and defined not by what we "do" but by "what gifts we can give.”

The prophecies of the Great Medicine Traditions of every indigenous culture call forth the honoring of the feminine as an absolute necessity if we are to save the world from destruction.

There is a beautiful Navajo prophecy woven into a blanket called the Blanket of Hope. The prophecy says,  "The world is like a great bird that has two wings - one wing is too strong - that is the masculine while the other wing is too weak -that is the feminine and that the world will not come back into balance until the feminine grows stronger until the corn maidens stand up."

I have had the honor of sitting with this blanket and being in ceremony with the woman who holds it. It is always life changing to be in the middle of a greater mythology – to be part of a living moving prophecy – to discover that our story has meaning and is woven into a greater tapestry than any of us can imagine. Now is the time we to have courage to stand up for things that really matter.

We have a profound opportunity as first world women with our privilege of education and political freedom to synthesize our knowledge and skills. We can create solutions that will benefit and uplift the thousands of impoverished indigenous women and children around the world. We only have to want to be impassioned by the ingenuity of love in action as a force to be reaconed with.

 Over half of the children in Africa are being cared for by their Grandmothers. Aids and drought in war torn areas have left thousands of orphans without parents.

Perhaps it is no coincidence one of the symbols of the feminine essence has always been water – Water has the ability to carve away great boulders over time with its gentle but unceasing and unstoppable waves. When water meets resistance it always finds a way to flow around the obstacle in its path.

In that sense we as women are a mighty wave of unstoppable power for change and healing.

Collectively we have the ability to ensure that all children around the world have access to clean water – water that is safe to drink. We just need to set the intention that it matters more than shopping for another pair of shoes -  to begin to feel the reverberations of our unified consciousness and breathe into a new planetary perspective.

Women are used to breathing through the pains of labor with the expectation that what is being born will make it all worthwhile.

In closing I would like to include a quote from my One Woman Show: "Many Women, One Voice "

“A woman with vision has the ability to create a whole new civilization in the palm of her hand.”

The Sweetness of the Ancient Ones

The Sweetness of The Ancient Ones

I spent last night with an Oromo elder from Ethiopia and a Guatemalan Elder as well as a dancer and painter from Oaxaca and a few others...a small gathering to see the slides of their recent journey to Guatemala “for healing the waters” and share a meal. We sang and laughed and laughed...It is always so healing to be with the ancient ones. Such sweetness! What a contrast to the western ways. We are received with such welcome and recognition of spirit and the way of the Heart. What a gift! It makes it so much easier to be in this world. The old one from Africa is very special...now he lives in Kenya. He doesn't speak the language so has to have a translator but there are a thousand languages...even ones we haven't heard that keep us dancing in the night. The one from Oaxaca tells us about his visions of Jaguars and flying up with fire - passionate love songs springing from his lips as he plays my Gibson guitar.

I sing a song I have written for the People of the Rainforest and my melodies and lyrics transport us to these ancient people of the Earth. Then I sing the song I wrote about being born part Cherokee and black and having to hide their Native American roots. Now people’s eyes fill with tears as we sit all together - this group from so many lands, this coat of many colors for we know that even now these old sorrows run like a river through the children of this land and sometimes haunt our dreams a night.

I am doing a grail circle tomorrow with about twelve people. The cycle continues. There will be red roses and someone is bringing a sword  - images and metaphors that keep us connected to spirit of beauty and courage of the carriers of the light. They are already writing songs and gathering poems and rounding up their drums...wanting to create a better story in this silly mess we are in. It is a good thing.

Yesterday I heard Coleman Barkes sharing Rumi...falling madly in love with the beloved...Robert Bly talking about the importance of grief - the thing we are so afraid to express. The Sufis were spinning in the background. The moon was a bright and full with the aching of new life...new directions torn from the ashes of this last lunar eclipse.
Someone asked me last night what tradition I had studied? I looked at her quizzically and said hmm now that is a longer conversation!

Last week I held a small circle with a woman who was visiting us from Hawaii who is Cherokee, Ethiopian and Hawaiian...we drummed and sang and shared a few blessings. She put her hands on my head and sang an ancient chant in Hawaiian and my skull is filled with diamonds. She told us stories about her marriage to a Muslim man and their journey to his family and the tribal people of Timbuktu...where the night sky is blazing with stars and the babies are dying from lack of medicine.

Sometimes the light shines bright in our lives and some times we get taken into the dark of night. Soul and personality are knitting together the golden tapestry and the old shoes. The ancient ones are dancing with that which is yet unborn.

Now I will go to the ashram to chant the songs of the siddhas and drink chai with the locals and listen to their stories of navigating this American dream while polishing the emerald of the inner world.

“When you know who you are and how your essential gifts and talents contribute to the community at large you become a natural leader of love and inspiration in this world." 

@Karen Rae Wilson


Karen Rae Wilson – Business and Career Intuitive – Creative Catalyst 

Wisdom Culture Consulting

Perhaps you are in the midst of a career shift or feeling the call to live into a dream that has been waiting for you to be inspired into action.

I have been gifted with the intuition and ability to see more deeply into your spiritual blueprint and to help you clearly formulate what steps you can take on a daily basis to begin to help this vision emerge.

Many of us are being asked to come up with entirely new structures and formats for work that have never existed before. The days of plugging into a secure nine to five job for many people are over.

Instead, finding the adventure of creating your own team and becoming a social entrepreneur is fast upon us. Scary? Yes, but downright exciting and a brand new adventure. This is your chance to do the thing you have always wanted to do/be and become.

The opportunity for a “New Renaissance “is at hand. Necessity is the mother of invention and this economy is the birthing ground for new vision, new ideas and more community enlivening and life giving endeavors. Each of us has a unique part to play that is the resonant tone that is being sounded.

New work endeavors that hold integrity and ethics are the order of the day. Besides it just feels better to be doing something that contributes to the whole.

Through the blessing of this gift I can literally see pictures of what wants to unfold in your life. I call this your divine blueprint.

Where are you being called to grow and change?

I would love to help you give birth to a higher octave of your essential nature and the expression of your true purpose.

There has never been a better time for you to shine!

“Wonderful to experience your work! I enjoyed the session. Then, today was the day I have been waiting for. Working on my book for 10 years - and it working wonderfully on me, of course - and today I sat down and did it, created the whole outline, chapter flow - all released by your seeing the vision. A thanks does not say enough! “ Indu Kline
