Yikes! It’s a Man!!!

§ Filed under The Divine Feminine, What's Up With Christine Marie and Julie § Tagged § 1 Comment

I haven’t had much to say lately.  Don’t know why.  I’ve been swimming in the flow of things, seeking my own truth, and seeing the beauty in things.  The Divine Feminine has been my deep love, my abiding joy, and the whisperer of secrets in my ear. 

And a couple of weeks ago she whispered something to me that, well, sort of shocked me.  She wanted me to set about on the journey of activating and inviting in my Divine Masculine a bit further.  My first reaction was, “Huh?” And I simply put it on something called the back burner of my todo list.  Not to be denied, she asked again..and a little more assertively this time. 

All right, I’ve got a hard noggin but I finally listened to her.  So, this year I have a coach/mentor that is a MAN.  A real flesh and blood Man that is full of testosterone and spit and vinegar and is wonderful and uncomfortable for me all at the same time.  

If you knew me you would know that I am so very comfortable in the feminine. I love the flow of things, the softness of things, I love to feel embraced by the Divine in all her aspects–the mother, the crone, the goddess, the movie star.. (It’s starting to sound like the theme song to Gilligan’s Island here)  But I have to say I’m enjoying this new experience.  I’m not loving it as of yet.  But I’m enjoying it.

He sees the world through the perspective of a martial artist…which he is.  In that respect he keeps me on my toes and always a bit off balance.  So far, I’ve yet to figure out his strategy.  (Damn) He wants me to release my lioness..wild and untamed and instinctual…and..in the midst of that to be able to lean on and count on my discipline. 

Honestly, I had to carve out a space in my brain to hold that one.  But I’ve been sitting with it awhile and I’m doing just fine.  And now I simply feel pretty darn lucky to have him as a mentor and my clients and students will benefit from my newer perspective as well…and, yes, “I feel like I won the Lottery” with him. 

I’ve met three aspects of my inner Divine Masculine so far…one is named Ricky..just kidding.  I don’t know what his name is yet but he is somewhat dangerous and maybe a little reckless and he doesn’t care at all about social conventions…he’s got some growing up to do..but he doesn’t give a damn about that.  I’m pretty sure he is hot, passionate, and would not be caught dead in a men’s drumming circle reading poetry.  To get to know him a little bit better  I have found that he resides somewhere in this song……to be continued..;o)   Enjoy~ I know I certainly did.
