"The Sword of Truth does not draw itself to battle men with the same consciousness that creates their illusion. Instead it cuts through the density of the false so one can see the light that lives within it"
- Siobhan Nicolaou
My speech at The Billy De Frank LGBT Center, 2015
As a woman, I am not saying the battle up until now has not been necessary, or important for it has brought to the attention of the world a reflection of their own separation and opportunity for wholeness like never ever before.
It has shone a bright light on what is not only unfair, but what seeks to oppress and control. It has expanded the truth beyond GAY rights to the fact that they are HUMAN RIGHTS and opened the door for all spirits of humans to be free in their unique expression.
The voices of women and men who have had the courage to be themselves are helping destroy the barriers for every human that they may express their rainbow souls fully.
It is a great time for all spirits as gender takes a back seat.
The consciousness and the system we have been forced to work within is CHANGING more now than ever.
The old structures will not be able to sustain that which is taking place in the evolution of human consciousness.
The fight has been about the liberation of the female spirit, much more than the female body, God’s most beautiful vessel.
I am saying we are now moving beyond that fight.
Women are finally becoming or “coming into being “ the truth of Spirit which blurrs, levels, dissolves all barriers that mother, father, society and religion have previously kept her contained wthin.
Taking the higher road of wholeness we become that for ourselves, our children our communities our country as the Spirit of Woman in the western world leads the rest to freedom.
"The nature of woman is for the essence of spirit to work through her heart and in her heart is the power to address all that is man".
It is not in celebrating diversity we will find acceptance, but rather in the celebration of our sameness.
Spirit of Woman is not one thing she is everything. Not one color of god’s rainbow, but every single color. We are growing beyond the limiting concept of gender which seeks to limit and separate from that which is not separate from any one thing.
One must not forget the truth of the spirit they are, or they will forever be fighting on the battlefield of duality and ignorance.
Nature itself is showing us how to get over the differences and suspicions of each other and love. Did you ever stop to think that maybe it was “the human perspective of separation” imposed upon them that made us believe they didn’t get along in the first place???
It is the limited human consciousness that says men are from mars women are from venus. Today is my daughters 25th Birthday and I stand here today doubly empowered in her mention. Her father encourages her not to speak or articulate her political insight with his family because she is a woman.
This man is not an asshole, this man is not a pig, this man was programmed deeply and fearfully when he was small by his parents and his culture. He couldn’t muster the strength to find the courage to break away from others beliefs and come to his own truth at that time. I pray for his awakening and all men like him, for they believe they have found certain freedom from their pain by hearing nothing in their words. I bless all in their ignorance,
I came into my compassion through my own healing and raising my girl to love and see it for what it is and see it through the eyes of compassion and truth even when it broke her heart.My daughter, this being of infinite intelligence and wisdom encased in the form of Spirit’s most ancient classic beauty is working her way up the ranks of politics to be what her Spirit is, not the bitter feminine against the man, but a wise force that can navigate her way around it seeing the whole picture not just her piece of the puzzle.
Its time to heal and learn to lead from the altar of your undivided heart and the world will change reflecting your wholeness.
The only way to lead anything out the darkness is by reflecting the light unto to it, not in opposition to what you judge its stands for, for the spirit of man is also the spirit of you. It is everywhere, un definable, cannot be contained or confined. It is the courage and the freedom that leads with no barriers in the confidence of its knowing ness. Senator Wendy Davis is a great example of The Spirit of Woman standing in pink tennis shoes speaking her truth with respect and grace to the super sized men of the old way who sought to knock her off her mark with comments and facial gestures for an eleven hour fillibuster. Not pushing back from her pain or judgement but leading from Spirit in her heart.
As the paradigm continues to shift, men will serve supporting through the heart and service of the women, rather than the women serving with their heart through the ego of the man. When the paradigm shifts completely and one aligns with the sovereign self, there will be no more role playing of any kind accept among those whose choose to cling to their outdated identity.
I chose Queen Elizabeth Rex to be the image of what represents the power and the peace a woman can sustain in her life and the lives of others with her undying connection to her in dwelling Spirit. It is your Sovereign self your only true self that rules all that is The Spirit of Woman.
"Learn to see the difference in no thing,, for it is within your capacity to see beyond the symbology, the colours, the outer appearances even the vibrational interpretation of that you then decide you dislike or like and then give it meaning. Dispel all separation by loving the self and recognize the perfection living within ALL things." . .Prepare now for what you will inevitably meet face to face. For it is not about the part of yourself you will discover, but your ability to respond when it looks you in the eye."
Gender does not create competition or resentment among others. Ones unconscious or conscious struggle to break free from self imposed limitation creates this conflict. All conflict begins and ends from within.
Only those who love can stand and observe, stand and be whole.
It is within your wholeness that others are whole. In your division they are condemned. We are coming into a time where we must learn to lead from the intelligence and wisdom of Spirit and not from the wounded ego. Love yourself, heal yourself . . . don’t just begin anew . . . .become anew .
New pathways to the heart cannot be created with old words from the mind.
Do not look outside yourself for approval, acceptance and validation but in your heart. Your external focus leaves your heart empty and your search for love ending. You are enough. . . the Spirt of you is enough.
Parents are wise to raise their children as the souls they are instead of the children they want them to be.
Unfortunately with many of us this was not the case. But when you learn to parent the child within you, nurture the wounded one with the spirit within that she really is, you become the divine expression of the rainbow soul that dwells within.
See beneath projections of love and you cannot be fooled by the fear residing within it. For it is not the actions from which one professes love, but from the source from which one extends it. For he who loves others is loving He who loves himself is whole. Thank You.
