The Divine Feminine. Our nurturing, caring, championing Goddess force lives within all of us, beating as a beautiful source of warmth and love throughout our veins. She is wisdom. She is timeless. And she is present within all of us.
The Divine Masculine. Our protection. Our valor. Our wisdom that grants calm and gravitas through all of us, pulsing as divine light throughout our neurons. He too is wisdom. He too is timeless. And he is present within us all.
All of us have the ability to tap into our Divine Masculinity and Femininity. How? Perhaps by first seeing who among us has brought their own Divine Masculine or Feminine to the forefront. Let’s follow the path of those who radiate divinity.
Here are some examples of those that emanate these qualities.
Malala Yousafzai is a tireless advocate for women’s education, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and a survivor. Raised in Pakistan, she chronicled her experiences living under the Taliban for the BBC – a fierce and brave voice against a repressive force of darkness. As she raised her voice, and with it the disinfectant of sunlight, darkness against her rose. Death threats became frequent. She remained undeterred. In 2012, she was shot after taking an exam. She was treated in Peshawar and the United Kingdom, where multiple surgeries saved her life.
After the attack, she doubled down on her activism, opening schools for young women and creating education initiatives such as “books, not bullets.” For her activism, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. Malala radiates the nurturing, empathetic drive to educate that is the hallmark of the Divine Feminine. And she carries the lion’s strength of the Divine Masculine. She is a tenacious and remarkable woman.
Playwright, actor, musician, activist – Miranda is a multi-dimensional artist who uses his voice to raise up those who are underserved. His mega-musical Hamilton retold the story of America’s Founding fathers through contemporary rap and hip-hop music, casting minority actors in roles historically held by white men and women. Through this transformative act, Lin-Manuel Miranda allowed Black and Latino Americans of all ages to see their part in the American story.
Additionally, Miranda has been a tireless activist for Puerto Rico, raising millions of dollars to help the island rebuild after hurricanes Maria and Irma. It’s clear that the fire of the Divine Masculine, and the wisdom of both divine energies flows through him, galvanizing him to champion those who need championing.
MacKenzie Scott is a philanthropist. Perhaps best known as the ex-wife of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, MacKenzie Scott has committed to giving away the majority of her wealth.
What makes MacKenzie’s philanthropy remarkable is the speed at which she has initiated her philanthropy. In a single year, she donated 5.8 billion dollars to over 400 individual charities, partnering directly with these organizations to disburse much-needed funds. This stands in contrast with slower, more bureaucratic giving foundations which dole out funds slowly and publicly. MacKenzie, on the other hand, has shown that she will use her gifts for good, and she will do so with speed. Her zeal for philanthropy and fire of empathy are beautiful hallmarks of the Divine Feminine. I am excited to see what good she will continue to do!
This woman is a fighter. She is a fierce, relentless voice for climate activism in a world that would rather drag its feet on the subject. She challenges politicians directly, shaming their attempts to conduct business as usual rather than face the existential threat that a changing climate presents. And she walks the walk – or sails the seas. Instead of flying, Ms. Thunberg has committed to climate-neutral transportation, using solar-powered sailing craft to cross the Atlantic.
Her spirit reflects the Lion’s heart of the Divine Masculine, and also the urgent nurturing instinct of the Divine Feminine. She urges us to tend to the wounds of our mother – Mother Earth. And we should heed her words. Gaia, our Mother Earth, bears our scars. To reconnect with the light, we must heal the wounds we have wrought upon her.
The Great Divinities, Masculine and Feminine, are present in each of us in different proportions. We can all call upon their strengths and attributes to help us navigate our own tumultuous waters. More than that, we can call upon their strengths to help us help others. Just as the Divine shows us the way, we too can share the light to our brothers and sisters, helping the whole of humanity move forward into the light.
