Provocative times call for provocative choices. This is one of those times.
In a recent post, I shared a TEDtalk re COVID-19. What stood out for me is that this particular virus transforms (attacks is one way of thinking of it – transforming is quite another) the lungs. In my world, from a CODE Model™ perspective, the lungs are the 4th Chakra (AIR element) and the Level of Thinking of Beliefs/Values/Attitudes. That 4th Level of Thinking speaks to our culturally conditioned beliefs, values and attitudes… and without doubt, ours are significantly overdue for a major overhaul!
That same 4th Level – from an energetic perspective – represents the Air Element. It is the essence of Air to move – it is not supposed to be fixed and static. Like air, our beliefs/values/attitudes are intended to shift and change; are supposed to make way for us to grow and evolve and become more of our own potential. When Air ceases to move, our environment becomes musty and dank; becomes stifling and leaves us gasping to breathe. Such is the state of the world we have created for ourselves… and we need something massive to make way for our own potential. Our complacency and mindless habituation are under attack.
The future of the world is in the hands of women… and the Cultural Crones are the ones who can become the invitation to others to claim their full potential, now. When a Cultural Crone awakens to and takes back the immensity of her own power, she ceases to be ‘an enforcer’ for the status quo; a ‘keeper’ of the traditions that have robbed us of our birthright of creativity, individuality and powerful Self-expression.
When a Cultural Crone awakens into the reclaiming and declaring of her own authentic presence, and draws that jagged line in the sand, she becomes the permission… the welcoming and provocative safe space… for others to free themselves from the bondage of cultural habits, and emerge into their own creative expression of Being. When a Cultural Crone awakens, a Space opens up and beckons to voices raised in support of our birthright of knowing we are Whole, we are Unique and we are Essential to our world.
Cultural Crones need not create change directly – we are the invitational Space within which change can occur. We can be that which holds the chaos and allows new visions to take form. We no longer need be the batter for the cake. We are the bowl which makes its creation possible.
We do not use force/aggression/pressure – we use presence, conversation, provocation, new thoughts, interconnection. The touch of a Cultural Crone is light… both in terms of weight and brightness. With wisdom comes the willingness to trust the power to invite and allow… and let go; to know that whatever the outcome, it is part of the journey. It may be the moment when our physicality hovers at the edge of the material and the ethereal…offering clear views of what has been and what might become!
Some time ago, I had the great honour of spending four days in exploration with a number of women ‘of a certain age’… women we would consider to be Cultural Crones… deeply committed to their own evolution, as a way of Life. From that came an audio program comprised of six CD’s. Provocative! Irreverent! Compelling! We laughed a lot and we cried a lot. We let go of some things and laid claim to others. And through it all, we knew – for each of us – that we could be part of the status quo or we could carve out a new reality. In our time together, we reaffirmed: we become what we talk about.
A Cultural Crone is not defined by her chronological age but by her willingness and ability to become the Space within which potential can unfold. ( See Sexual, Sensual and Spiritual Beings to lay the groundwork.) Unflinching. Unapologetic. A Seasoned Watcher, knowing that from chaos new worlds can emerge.
We have moved through the gateway into The Great Reset. We are being pressed… compressed… forced into slowing down in anticipation of a great turning. At this time in our collective reality, I know the Cultural Crones are to play a huge part in bridging to a New World. For this reason, I am choosing to make the full audio program available to anyone who desires it.
May you find a pathway through to your own genius!
