In the Western world, we define femininity as being girly, soft, sensitive, and fragile. Femininity is sometimes referred to as girlishness, marianismo, or womanhood. Toxic views on femininity have caused many problems for paternalistic culture over the years. They have even led to subjugation, rape, and cultural genocide through the destruction of the womb.
The masculine energy is motivated by survival. The feminine energy is motivated by creation. The Ancients knew that both were necessary aspects of ourselves and balance would be required to work in sync with Universal Law. However, there has been a long history of the masculine energy dominating, conquering, and destroying everything in its path.
During the Inquisition, said heretics were deprived of their estate and assets, which then became the property of the Catholic treasury. For over six centuries women were raped, tortured, sexually enslaved, and forced to give up their ability to provide for her family through systematic means, if not burned alive. Even nine-year-old girls were tortured with hot irons and pliers on their breasts and genitals. Accused women were tried without being told the nature of their charges, and condemning evidence was accepted into court from witnesses as young as 2 years old. Anyone who spoke against the accusations was also tried, and thus, no woman was ever found innocent. On top of that, these individuals were expected to pay for their own imprisonment, food, and torture. The lucky women were let out and reduced to housewives and servants, losing all social value and status. They were forced to recite a pledge absolving all men of wrongdoing that read, “I free all men, especially the ministers and magistrates, of the guilt of my blood; I take it wholly upon myself, my blood be upon my own head.” The Inquisition was the most elaborate extortion racket devised in modern history. Millions died, and 85% were women. The Inquisition was setup by the Roman Catholic Church to uncover and punish heresy… or so they teach us. However upon doing the research, we find that the Inquisition had two real purposes: it brought wealth to the Catholic Church, and it justified the mass elimination of the female sex to suppress the resurgence of feminine power in medieval Europe.

In Antiquity, 3000 years before Indo-European Christianity, was introduced, there were Shiva and Shakti. Taoists observed Yin and Yang. Hermetists studied the conscious and subconscious aspects of the mind. Prior to Western Judeo/Christianity, there was always a divine feminine “creator” counterpart to the divine masculine “survivor.” It was impossible for one to exist without the other.
Amanishakheto or Amanishaket was an extremely wealthy & powerful Queen in Ancient Nubia. She lived in a palace with 60 rooms, defeated the Roman army, and built pyramids at Wad Ban Naqa and in Meroë. Inside Amanishakheto’s grave, the Italian treasure hunter Ferlini discovered an amazing quantity of gold artifacts, armlets, necklaces, and pendants. Her treasures were stolen by Ferlini and are now on display at the Egyptian Museum of Berlin & Egyptian Museum of Munich. Her daughter Amanitore, who also became Queen of Nubia, was mentioned in the Bible (Acts 8:27).
Historic Female Kings
Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful women in ancient history. She was the fifth pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty, and ruled longer than any other woman in Egyptian history. Hatshepsut was married to Thutmose II, and when he died in 1479 BC, Hatshepsut continued to rule by herself. Hatshepsut was one of Ancient Egypt’s most successful monarchs, she commissioned many building projects and reestablished trade networks.
She was also a businesswoman and led a large-scale expedition to the Land of Punt – a wealthy, sophisticated country south of Egypt. Hatshepsut led successful military campaigns in Nubia, the Levant, and Syria during her reign, and restored many ancient statues and teachings. Her reign was one of the most successful, harmonious, and prosperous eras in Ancient Egypt. And upon her death, her step-son destroyed all her monuments, also destroying her legacy.
- In Central and South America, women were used for executing cultural genocide. They were raped and impregnated, or burned alive for being “non-believers in Christianity.”
- Slavery originated as a ‘substitute’ for killing war prisoners. It was first developed and perfected on female war captives, as no men were spared. After their husbands, brothers, and sons had been severely mutilated and left for dead, the female captives would be incorporated into Indo-European households as servants.
- In 1993, in Bangladesh, a 14-year-old girl was raped by a village elder. But since there were not four “good Muslim” witnesses that were male, the girl and her mother were sentenced to 100 lashes.
- 75% of the female prisoners in Pakistan are there on rape charges, as victims.
Divine Feminine Resurgence
These are the roots of today’s chauvinist; masculine dominated, war-torn, divided, male-centric society. By using brute force to disconnect women from their abilities to manifest through the non-physical, and terming it witchcraft, the masculine dominated church was able to annihilate true divine femininity. Generations later, male domination had taken to reconstructing femininity, in their eyes. All of the major corporations that control a woman’s self-image are male owned. Hair, makeup, weight loss, pharmaceutical, social media & broadcast industries are run by men.
Even plastic surgery is a male-dominated profession with a primarily female market.
The modern definition of Femininity is, “a set of attributes, behaviors, and roles, associated with female organisms, by both socially defined and biologically created factors.” Sounds like this was written from a masculine perspective, doesn’t it? I feel like what makes me feminine is so much more than what literally MAKES ME FEMININE.
I’m not feminine because I’m a wife, because I have boobs, or because I like soft, fuzzy blankets. I am and have those things because I’m in touch with my Divine Feminine Energy. This definition of femininity teaches us to associate being weak, submissive, and physically female with something that is totally beyond physical understanding. It is the subconscious aspect of ourselves, which is why some say women have a certain majestic quality you can’t define with words.
Solely physical associations are usually wrong anyway, but we’ve been taught to memorize & repeat, rather than think critically. Masculinity and Femininity are opposing poles of the same scale, and we all fall somewhere in between. The Divine Feminine has nothing to do with these lower level understandings of femininity; they should be viewed in correlation, rather than causation.
Alchemy of the Divine Feminine energy is the study and practice of mastering the metaphysical ability to create and manifest. As women, the physical manifestation of this energy, we have a responsibility to work with the unseen, unmanifest, and subconscious realms of reality to heal and protect our families. We can bring balance and harmony by consciously attracting more of what we desire and avoiding what we do not desire to experience before it’s even manifest.
Yes, this means women have superpowers. Our ancestors across many continents honored both the Divine Feminine and Masculine Energies as they are equally necessary for energetic transmutation. The masculine is the protector & provider, while the feminine is the creator & cultivator. Laws like Duality, Polarity, Gender, and Balance must be understood to work with the constant flow of goodness around us. In antiquity, the women were seen as Gods, in the flesh.
Men knew how valuable a woman was to the kingdom. Even today, rape & cultural genocide are the most commonly used weapons of war because they cause irreversible damage.
Divine Feminine Alchemy
Per Universal Law, feminity and masculinity are not opposite of one another. We all carry both feminine and masculine qualities, about a 70/30 split between the two. Typically we manifest our bodies to present the aspect we identify with the most. Yes, that means we’re all androgynous at a soul level and being transgender, or preferring neutrality isn’t crazy or a sign of mental illness.
Now you’re probably wondering why I incorporated the word ‘alchemy’ into the name of this community. Well let me set the stage, traditional alchemy is defined as “an ancient practice shrouded in mystery [where] practitioners sought to turn lead into gold.” According to LiveScience.com, it is “rooted in a complex spiritual worldview in which everything around us contains a sort of universal spirit… When a base, or common, metal such as lead was found, it was thought to simply be a spiritually and physically immature form of higher metals such as gold. To alchemists, metals were not the unique substances that populate the Periodic Table, but instead the same thing in different stages of development or refinement on their way to spiritual perfection.”
Through this interpretation, I have found a sort of analogy for feminine self-mastery. To heal our respective communities, we must learn to conjure the divine feminine energy. Like a dance. To exude femininity, we must use our higher faculties like creativity, intuition, willpower, clairvoyance, and clairsentience. The Universe works in subtleties and quaint symbolism. Unlike making progress in the physical realm, no amount of chanting, or hard work is going to help you understand how to work with Divine Feminine Energy.
I. AIR (Logic/Reason)
We must Master the ability to Balance our Feminine energy with the Masculine. To deal with reality AS IT IS and not as we would like it to be. Many women struggle with “surviving” (the Masculine aspect of the Neter) as we are always “creating” on another plane. We must learn to Balance our Metaphysical nature with surviving this physical reality.
III. EARTH (Health)
Without this element, the others will not be fully expressed. Poor health is a sign of disharmony in the subconscious. Decalcifying, removing toxins & acidity, and accumulating more sunlight/melanin/cosmic intelligence is crucial. The primary responsibility of The Divine Feminine is to Create. “The body is the house of God. That is why it is said, KNOW THYSELF”. Ancient Egyptian Proverb
II. FIRE (Emotion)
Our emotions are our greatest tool as the Divine Feminine, but we often use them to self-destruct. We must learn to first Observe them, then begin to guide and direct our emotions as they are the momentum behind what we physically manifest.
IV. WATER (Awareness/Spirit)
As we learn to observe, instead of reacting to sensation, we begin to choose what we focus on and what will expand in our lives. The key to this idealistic expansion is Awareness. That which we are unaware of, we cannot change. We must come out of ignorance and learn to view this existence with a greater Overstanding. Awareness is subtle, and cannot be conceptualized or forced in a certain direction. “Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate Mountains and Earth. This shows clearly the principle of softness overcoming hardness.” Lao Tzu
I’ve spent the last decade, asleep, buying into this Matrix in which we live. But I am awake now. And I have created this community as a resource to rehabilitate the feminine self-image. Whatever messages, inspiration or relationships you cultivate through this platform are a perfect step on your path to self-liberation. Not all things are good, but all things are perfect. Your own Knowing will be your greatest guide. This is a safe space, sis.
