A Living Being of Feminine Energy
For as long as we have been alive, we have heard the term “Mother Nature.” At WomenServe, we emphatically believe that Earth is a manifestation of feminine energy. But we would like to take this a step further. We are declaring our home, Earth, to be a woman of power. And this woman, she is a strong yet gentle goddess.
Mother Earth – The Creator of Life
Everything that is living today was created from organic matter. From the tiniest cell to the most complex humans, we are born from the Earth.
So let us start with the most basic of feminine traits, the creation of life. Yes, male energies such as the Sun are required to make this happen. But the womb of creation is all in the Mother. The seeds are planted within her rich and fertile soil. If she does not produce fruit, she is barren. If she has never been sown pon before, she is a virgin.
Mother Earth is indeed the giver of life. She gives us oxygen to breathe, water to sustain our bodies, and food for energy. Without these essential elements, life is not possible.
Yes, Earth is a creator and sustainer of life and a woman of power indeed.
A woman of power that holds wisdom.
Indigenous people have been using the wisdom found in plants to heal as long as they have walked the Earth’s wise soil. Before the pharmaceutical industry’s birth, herbs as medicinals were the natural way to heal our bodies. Medicine men and women knew and respected this powerful wisdom.
In modern times we have moved away from this natural feminine wisdom. But we are returning to more natural ways of healing through the rise of traditional herbalism. Acclaimed herbalist Rosemary Gladstar practices this Earth wisdom.
A woman of power that heals.
No doubt you have heard the term “the healing power of nature.” But, how does the Earth do this? She grows herbs to help heal our bodies. We dig clay from below her surface, which heals cuts and scrapes. Serenity of mind is found on long walks through the forest. Yes, nature, this woman of power we call Earth, can heal.
There is a subtle yet powerful intelligence that runs through every living thing, humans included. If we listen to this intelligence, miracles unfold.
Earth is an empowered woman, taking back her power.
The most common similarity between women and the Earth is the oppression that we share. Women everywhere have been seen as being less than. They have been disrespected simply for being women. We have had to fight for our rights and safety.
As a society, are we not doing this to our Earth as well? The landfills are overflowing, the climate is in crisis, and we are still moving in the wrong direction. But Mother Earth is slowly taking back her power. In the end, we see her restored to her bountiful beauty. Will we be here to see it? Perhaps.
In 1907 Leo Baekeland invented the first fully synthetic plastic, meaning no molecules were found in nature. Just 100 years later, we have seen plastics take over our planet, kill our wildlife, and create havoc on a global scale.
Leaders in the natural products industry are now rapidly looking for (and finding) solutions to our plastic problem. Where are they finding them? Within our own Earth.
A Selfless Call to Service
Today, what many view as powerful is often masqueraded as people with huge egos wanting to control, dominate and step on others to get ahead. But this is not the way of true power.
Real strength comes from stepping back, doing good, being of service, and not caring for the praise that comes with it. Our planet provides for us without asking for anything in return. Earth, this living being, gives unconditionally and does so quietly. This woman of power doesn’t ask for credit.
The goddess loves us fiercely, continuing to create even though she knows many do not love her in return. The Mother in her quietly eases our fears on our walks through her trees. She graces our presence through the bounty of beauty we call “nature” while silently reveling in our enjoyment and peace.
Earth is a true woman of power.
Yes, the Earth is a True Woman of Power. As we enter the age of Aquarius, the divine feminine age, we see the strength of this powerful force. But she will not display her power by yelling, screaming, or punishing others. No. She will softly whisper in our ears with love. And as faithful stewards, we will love, serve and nurture her in return, grateful to belong. That is the essence of true power. To gracefully lead, with her head held high, reminding us all that we are all connected.
