Survival Mode: Survival techniques that have been carried over from our ancestors and past lives that we have lived are needing healing and love so that women can thrive and not just survive. The conditioning of women has been influenced by our parents, religions and cultures. It is important to recognize the divinity within ourselves and to love all aspects of our journey through compassion and empathy in order to move out of a survival mode that is no longer necessary.

Witch Wound:

Constantine was the first Roman Emperor to convert to Christianity. He sent armies out to kill anyone who was not of the same belief system. Women at the time were treated as second class citizens. After many of their husbands were killed, the women started to brew beer and sell it on the street corners. They wore pointy hats to be seen in the crowds. This is where we see the image of the “Witch” start to form with their pointy hats, stirring a cauldron. The word “witch” meant “she who gathers sticks or herbs.”

During Witch trials, many women started judging and criticizing other women. They turned on each other for fear of being killed. Humanity can benefit when we heal through divine feminine empowerment energy.

Collective Consciousness:

The big shift happened 6000 years ago when we moved from a matrilineal society to a patrilineal society with the introduction of Zoroastrianism and monotheism. This is when the shift of power started between the feminine and the masculine. The energy in the collective consciousness holds vibrations of different layers of consciousness. There is a thread that connects everyone. We saw this consciousness thread during the Witch trials. Even without modern technology such as phones and internet, witch trials were happening at the same time in many different parts of the world. Our energetics feed the thread that connects the mass consciousness. If we all start connecting and embracing the divine feminine and resourcing ourselves with thoughts of equality, we can shift the collective consciousness. Having reverence for the Earth also helps us to appreciate Mother Earth and our physical bodies.
