The Divine Feminine is a tender subject that is close to my heart. I feel very deeply about this. It is my opinion, that this is one of the things the world has to shift on as the frequency of the earth rises. Since the beginning the world has been a “mans” world. In all facets of the world from business, jobs, and industries to cultures and religion. Men have dominated over women. It is like the men have been the North Pole and the women have been the South Pole.
Women have been looked down upon and blamed for the men’s problems. Women have not been given the respect, and acknowledgment of the power and position we hold as women beside the men, not below them. Let me be clear I am not a feminist. We can not simply be women dominating the world either. That would simply switch the poles, and that is not in balance. That would put us right back into the same position. I am advocating for the poles to be the East and West Poles, men and women side by side.
For me it is about the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine coming into a balance and unity with one another. Equal in power, authority, importance and respect. I believe the earth come into her glory when this balance is achieved. This change can only start in one place, us as individuals. We each have to change our mindset from seeing the other as less than, and start seeing each other as equals.
We can choose to change our mindsets willingly, or as these things begin to shift you will be left behind. This is a problem especially in the religious circles of the world. For men I believe it is more difficult. They have been raised believing that they have power and women do not, when in fact they both have power. They simply each just have different role and responsibilities.
The only way we can shift into this balance is with teaching and understanding. Hopefully this post brings an awareness that will help us start to shift. The Divine Feminine has been here since the beginning and has to be present to bring balance. Each of us shifting into this mindset of unity willingly, will end up changing the world. Bringing things to pass that we once thought were impossible. It will be beautiful, peaceful, and the most amazing time in the history of the world. The Divine Masculine and Feminine have a type of relationship that supports and feed one another. They both have more power and continue to grow when in balance.
The Matriarchal Order and The Divine Feminine
Balance in the Male and Female
In the not too distant future the balance of male and female energy will again be present on the earth. It must be so if there is to be order and peace, knowledge and wisdom, power and love. All things must be restored and in a balance. Both of the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine need to be present and in unity to fulfill divine purposes. We must return to the balance that we all came from and know. That balance is not present in our current day. In order to come into this balance, we first need to know the difference in the roles and responsibilities for both male and female. Then we can fulfill them together, with one heart and one mind.
Our Return and Ascension
For men and women to ascend in this life and be one with Father and Mother in heaven, we must be at one with in ourselves and one with each other and our world. Today our planet and its inhabitants are in crisis. All is out of balance. There is dysfunction and much that is unsustainable. In many ways we are destroying the earth and the future of our children. We are part of a downward cycle into material density. Something must be done if we are to spiral upward into light. Like a spinning wheel shaking the whole car, our out of balance earth and population has reached its limits. For too long we have been dominated by the strong, controlling male energy comparable to the sun.
Conflict often results with this energy. Unless it has balanced by the soothing, gentle light of the moon. Responsibility and right action are the essence of real masculinity within the patriarchal order. Not competition, greed, self-interest, and control by tyrannical rule. Bringing back the divine feminine of the matriarchal order, featuring love, peace, cooperation, and sharing will bring needed balance to a desperate earth and her people. Healing, via compassion and understanding, can then occur for the earth and her inhabitants. Pure love must return.
Until we are one as a people and care for and love one another in complete harmony and unity of the male and female – the patriarchal and matriarchal- the divine masculine and the divine feminine this balance can not return. We must move from competition to co-operation, from control to compassion, and from greed to sharing. There must be a great increase in love and peace rather than the status quo. Those who will not forgive and do not change, who are not willing to shift in frequency and vibration to match the changing frequency of the earth they live on, will be removed from mother earth. This is natural law.
Those remaining must awake and arise into a higher state
This higher state is one of “becoming” rather than of accumulating – a removal of heaviness, that both we and the earth may be lifted up and return home. An inspired balance of male and female energy will come to aid this process. It is the condition of the heart that provides evidence of our being reborn into a higher vibrational frequency, of having greater light, revealed in the stability of peace and love. This is the balanced ideal of the patriarchal and matriarchal orders. With such a lightened heart, the pathway to ascension opens.
As light cleaves to light. We will then be lifted up and clothed with light. To ascend is to exit the wheel of repeating life lessons, those experienced over and over until we get them right. It is to be liberated from what eastern religions teach are many lifetimes of needed experience. It is “to go no more out” as Christian scripture says, and discover God and heaven within us while in this life (see Alma 7:25, 29:17, 34:36, Helaman 3:30, 3 Nephi 28:40, Revelation 3:12 & Acts 13:34).
As spiritual beings having a human experience, we can be part of the blessed process of ascension through our physical bodies as temples. The primary key is love. Advanced souls experience this result of completion, of “overcoming the world,” here, when the timing is right. Most will experience it at the end of the earth’s planetary cycle, when she ascends. Both she and her people will become light, one with God.
To balance out the male energy that has been on this earth, the female must rise up and be recognized. The Divine Feminine has been here all along but suppressed and dominated over. The men must start to recognize and see the female as equals in power. The women must start to see this power with in themselves and stand up to balance the men.
Symbols of the Divine Feminine in Cultures – The Matriarchal Has Been Here All Along
There are many traditional visual symbols tied to female attributes. They include:
- The Silvery Moon
- Water A Cup
- The Tree (Tree of Life)
- A Menorah
- An Asherah Pillar
- A Dove (Holy Spirit)
- The Shekinah
- A Feather
- A Cow
- Crown of Horns with a Sun Disc
- A Winged Sun Disc
- Bees, Beehives
- A Downward Pointing Triangle
- The Vesica Pisces
- Caves Waters, Springs
Lets expound on a couple of them here:
Trees and The Tree of Life
The Tree of Life and the related seven-branched tree-like menorah have female overtones for many. Some believe the menorah appears to have replaced two earlier representations of “Wisdom” in Solomon’s Temple; a Tree of Life in the Holy of Holies next to God’s throne, and ten free-standing pillars lining the way to it (five on each side). Evidence that it once stood by the throne of God is found in 2 Enoch 8:3–4, the Life of Adam and Eve, 22:4, and John’s vision in Revelation 22:1–4.
The older tent Tabernacle is said to have had a “candlestick” placed on the south side of the Holy Place (just before the veil) – the south being the direction of most light. Barker states that the original “candlestick” in Solomon’s Temple was not a single seven-branched tree or menorah, but two representations of light and wisdom seen in the Tree of Life and “Asherah” pillars.
In addition, LDS scholar Daniel Petersen has written about the Asherah in connection with Nephi and the Tree of Life in the Book of Mormon. In it he establishes its clear ties to our Mother in heaven, one of our more significant pieces of lost wisdom today. Symbolic features like the Asherah and other original items of Solomon’s Temple were removed in a purge. This was a purge by controlling priests and scribes to remove unacceptable doctrines (all the feminine) and their symbols in the seventh century BC.
Barker states that their purging is perhaps most evident in the loss of the spiritual “vision” (and specifically that of ascending to the Lord) of the corrupt priesthood, and in the various omissions of the Second Temple generally. In her book, The Mother of the Lord, Barker reveals that what Latter-day Saints would call our Mother in Heaven – is “Wisdom” in scripture (see Proverbs, for example), most commonly tied to the Tree of Life (1 Nephi 11).
John’s Tree of Life in the holiest part of the temple appears to have been a connecting point between God in heaven and the worlds of His creation below. Its branches extend heavenward and its roots connect the worlds. This is exactly how some ancient American cultures envisioned it. It is called Kae-e-vanrash in Facsimile 2. It is the rainbow-bridge or tree connecting worlds, recently popularized in the movie Thor.
The Shekinah – Fiery Pillar of Light with Female Ties
The words Shekinah, Wisdom and Spirit have decidedly female associations in scripture and the ancient world. They are often capitalized, expressing a certain formality. The Shekinah was a symbol of divine protection, a role also maintained by the Cherubim in scripture, and the strong women surrounding the Egyptian throne (Hathor & Isis). The Bible includes a number of physical descriptions of the fiery pillar of light, in connection with the ancient Tabernacle, and the future protection of the righteous. This luminous pillar is normally referred to as “the Shekinah,” a Hebrew female noun for “the Divine Presence.” It is sometimes tied to the Father and Son, but more often to the Spirit, Wisdom and Mother in Heaven. It is evident that there are clear ties of the Spirit (and to light, oil, life and creation) to the female aspect of the Divine Presence.
The Bee & Beehives
Some connect the queen bee to Mary the mother of Christ or even Mary Magdalene, both types for Eve and Mother in Heaven. Nibley states that, “The bee is symbolic of the Empress and the feminine (matriarchal) powers of nature because they are ruled by queens.” He added that Min, as the first, supreme male creator God and “his mistress” were both associated with the honeybee…Min is he who belongs to the Bee, who stands in relationship to the bee. In the Leiden Book of Breathings, the succession to the crown is assured when Horus marries the queen bee and takes over the land.” Nibley added that, “Originally the bee title designated a sacred, prehistoric kingship, ‘a spiritual entity’ existing ‘before the creation of the cosmos,…a holy kingdom stretching back even to the preexistence,” etc. There appears to be established in “the Elohim”; man and woman in unified leadership as king and queen over their posterity – patriarchal and matriarchal rule in unity.
Honey has sometimes been called “the dew of heaven” or the “food of the gods”. Nibley claims that the bee is the only creature that into this world from a previous one, revealing a divine connection.
The bee was an essential element in re-establishing civilization through food production, via fertility – the effective pollinating of crops, plants and trees. Bees are thus part of creation via fertility of the land, insuring renewal, thus their female connections. According to Hall, “The bee is sacred to the goddess Venus…The fact that bees are ruled by queens is one reason why this insect is considered a sacred feminine symbol…Because of its importance in pollinating flowers, the bee is the accepted symbol of the generative power.” At one time the bee was the emblem of the French and Merovingian kings.
Symbols of the Matriarchal Order in Egypt
The bee and beehive have ancient ties to kingship and divine government in a place set apart and pure – a promised land, the land of Egypt first established under matriarchal rule. According to Nibley, the bee was chief among the cult objects of Egypt, “the land of the bee,” where it was associated with their land, their empire, and their king – primarily through the king’s association with the Queen.
She was associated with the red or dsrt crown of Lower Egypt, the red crown featuring a long antenna. “The bee-sign originally stood alone as the supreme symbol of sacral primal kingship in Egypt.” This bee crown belonged properly to the Queen Bee, however—the wife of the king, and more specifically to his mother (Hathor). The king was not The Bee. The king was associated with The Bee – a representation of “the Mother of the Gods.” The Bee was thus “the Great Mother”, “the Hidden One” and her companion was the Great Bull.
Nibley states that before all else, the bee was thus “a sign of royalty” in matriarchal Egypt. The word honeybee (d’srt or deseret) was also connected to ‘migrations’ and was “a ‘word of power’ in ancient Egypt, thought to be one of a number of “keys” that only the king possessed. It held a role in sacred rites (such as resurrection) and thus its true name was hidden or suppressed in the reading of various texts. Graves stated that the beehive was studied as a model of the ideal republic in Egypt and elsewhere, and that in various ages that were “golden, honey dropped from the trees. At Delphi, for example, the shrine was made from bees’ wax, a representation of the goddess there as “the Bee”.
Symbols in the Heavens- The Pleiades
In every civilization there is a reference to the Seven (visible) Stars of the Pleiades and in every culture associates them with the female. They are referred to as the seven dancing sisters, the flock of doves, and swarm of golden bees. All feminine. They are tied to the Holy Spirit as they are the cluster of stars that seamen in antiquity used to navigate their ships. They are tied to the bee because in the bees brain is a small crystal. This is the reason they navigate by using the sun as a marker. In every culture they are feminine.
The cluster of seven stars happens to be in the right shoulder of Taurus the bull (a priesthood location). In Egypt the bull was symbolic of father. They are in the shoulder to represent that the feminine help to empower and strengthen the male- as the shoulder is symbolic of power generally. All over the world people looked to the stars (including the Pleiades) for the signal of the beginning and end of the seasons, when to plant, when to harvest, when to expect rains and when to engage in festivals. At the Temple of Hathor in Egypt, the star clock celebrates the Pleiades as marking the great center of our solar system and is tied to the Precession of the Equinoxes. In the bible Orion (representing the Savior) is mentioned alongside Pleiades.
Looking to the heavens for our examples, lets talk about the examples of Gods and Goddesses, also known as:
Elohim, Eloah, and The Gods
Among the many pearls of truth that have purposely been concealed from churches and synagogues is the awareness that Elohim [pronounced el-lo-HEEM], is simultaneously the word for God and Goddess. In the original Hebrew of the Bible, Eloah [el-LO-ah], is the feminine form of ‘God.’ This one specific word, Eloah, literally means “Goddess.” Theologians, motivated by various agendas, deliberately masked profound truths about Elohim, the God of the Bible. They have intentionally obscured the presence of the Divine Feminine. Even though some of the Hebrew words for God have a distinctly feminine gender, translators have almost universally suppressed this, being unwilling to use the feminine word “Goddess.” They have consistently used only masculine pronouns when referring to God – even when feminine pronouns would have been correct. Present-day Bible dictionaries and concordances are still biased in this way, ignoring basic Hebrew grammatical rules in translating the various words for Deity.
The result is that most Christians and Jews have been mis-taught that God is exclusively male. Elohim is majestic, and awesome, being that is beyond comprehension. Elohim is translated into English as ‘God.’ It is actually a gender-combined word, simultaneously representing both unity and majestic plurality. It is a compound of the feminine singular Eloah with the masculine plural suffix -im. Eloah is the feminine singular counterpart of El, which means God. Eloah is correctly translated as “Goddess.” In Hebrew, the -oah, -oh or -ah suffix makes a word feminine [comparable to the English suffix -ess, used in such words as waitress and stewardess.] In Aramaic, the original language of New Testament times, the word Abwoon is similarly gender-combined, meaning “Father-Mother.” In the original Aramaic, ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ begins with the word Abwoon, but in English translations of the Bible, it has been translated as Father, only.
El Shaddai is another name of God used in the Bible
The word ‘shad’ means ‘woman’s breast,’ and ‘shaddai’ means ‘breasts,’ or ‘many breasts.’ Though El Shaddai is translated as ‘God Almighty,’ or ‘the Almighty’ in the English Bible, it literally means ‘God with breasts’ or ‘[many] breasted [God].’ The name El Shaddai refers to the Goddess of Israel. There is a radically important declaration in Exodus 6:3: “I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob by the name of El Shaddai, but by my name Yahweh I was not known to them.” The Patriarchs were aware of the Father [Yahweh], but Elohim related to them primarily as the Goddess, El Shaddai.
The word Eloah appears fifty-seven times in the Old Testament, and Shaddai or El Shaddai appears forty-eight times; two-thirds of these are found in the book of Job, a book featuring numerous references to the heavens. Job lived during the days of Abraham, and Job is the second most ancient book of the Bible. There are two specific declarations of the femininity of Eloah, in Job. The Father announced, “the sea ‘leapt tumultuous from the womb’.” [Job 38:8] Then, He rhetorically asked, “Out of whose womb came the ice?” [Job 38:29] Obviously there is a Biblical Goddess, Eloah, from whose Divine Womb sprang the sea and ice. Ruach ha Kodesh is the Hebrew phrase that means ‘Holy Spirit.’ Ruach is feminine, and the Aramaic equivalent ruah is also a feminine noun. These words are always paired with feminine verbs and pronouns.
The Holy Spirit is feminine, and is another designation of Eloah
In the original Aramaic texts, Messiah promised: “And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that She may dwell with you forever.” [John 14:16] The Bible appears to make numerous references to the Goddess. Some believe it instructs us to praise and worship Her; to offer prayer to Her. “I am one who calls on Goddess and expects an answer.” [Job 12:4] “Then Shaddai will be all your delight, and you shall lift your face to Eloah. You will pray and She will hear.” [Job 22:26-27
The most prominent Goddess is that of:
Mother in Heaven
Divine female influences (potentially our Mother in Heaven) are found in all three Facsimiles; the dove in #1, the cow in the lower portion of #2 (in the Vedic tradition of Hinduism the cow is highly honored), and the female figure behind the throne in #3. She appears to be represented symbolically by a number of things in scripture, including Asherah, Menorah, the Tree of Life, the Dove, the Virgin (verses the harlot), and the winged sun disc (wings of the Spirit and light). Scripture speaks of God’s chariot throne riding upon “the wings of the Spirit.” She in known by many names and symbols context always playing an important connecting role. They include:
Potential Names for Mother in Heaven
- Wisdom, Sophia (Proverbs)
- Eloah (female form of El)
- El Shaddai (“God with breasts”)
- Glory of the Lord
- Daughter of Zion (Jerusalem)
- Queen of Heaven
- Eve / Mary

The Concept of a Heavenly Mother
In the Gospel of Truth, for example (found as part of the papyri at Nag Hammadi in Egypt), we read, “The word of the Father clothes everyone from top to bottom, purifies, and makes them fit to come back into the presence of their Father and their heavenly mother.” (See Hugh Nibley, Temple and Cosmos, FARMS, Deseret Book, p. 122. Nibley cites The Gospel of Truth 23:33; 24:7). The concept of a male god and his female consort appears typical of early first dynasty Egyptian Gods such as Ra and his consort Unas, or Amen and his consort Ament.
In her article, The Hidden Divine Feminine, Maxine Hanks cites three historic events where Mother in Heaven is recognized. In consoling Zina D. Huntington upon the death of her mother on July 8, 1839, the Prophet Joseph Smith stated that not only would she come to know her mother once again on the other side, but “more than that, you will meet and become acquainted with your eternal Mother, the wife of your Father in Heaven.” Surprised, Zina then asked “And have I then a Mother in Heaven?” The Prophet Joseph then replied, “You assuredly have. How could a Father claim His title unless there were also a Mother to share that parenthood?” Elohim is frequently used in association with “the council of the Gods” in the pre-existence. In Facsimile 2, Book of Abraham it may signal our God and His eternal companion—a representation of our possible exaltation in the same covenant relationship. See Genesis 1:26-27.
Her name Eloah
Barker provides her another name – Eloah, the female aspect of the God’s in the plural Elohim. As the wife of El, she was the mother of Yahweh and the 70 sons of El, the “one who begets.” Like most mothers, She had great desire for the protection of Her children. She would also discipline them as necessary.
More subtle, but equally important are ties to her through anointing oil that comes from this life-giving tree. This oil is thought to have direct ties to the seven gifts of the Spirit (Isaiah 11:1; Proverbs 9:1), and “visionary” ability. The ten pillars, like the later menorah, had oil for light with them. Each of the pillars featured a bowl of oil (symbol of the Spirit) atop it containing seven wicks or lights in a circle. Some believe they represented the seven planets. Others see the seven wicks as representative of the seven lights or angels of Revelation 16, or the seven divine qualities of God listed in the seven spirits of Isaiah 11:1 (Proverbs 9:1). One of the first of these is “Wisdom.”
Her name of Wisdom
Wisdom is Her primary name in scripture, revealed as part of the patriarchal / matriarchal order that will return in the last-days. Solomon revealed many things about her in his writings. He states that She was with God at creation, for example (Proverbs 3:19, 8:27). Solomon asked for “wisdom” that he might judge his people wisely. He received it in part in connection with his own ascent vision experience. His later statement is repeated here, “Where there is no vision the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18).
Wisdom is another name for the Goddess. ‘Wisdom’ is the feminine Hebrew word Hochmah; the equivalent or more formal name for wisdom in Greek is “Sophia”. Although the word ‘wisdom’ definitely is equated with good judgment and astuteness, Wisdom unmistakably refers to Goddess in several scripture passages, The Messiah said: “Wisdom is proven by Her children.” [Luke 7:35] She also assisted in the generative process, alongside Yahweh and announces that She was brought forth before the physical creation:
“Yahweh created Me, first-fruits of His fashioning, before the oldest of His works. From everlasting I was firmly set – from the beginning, before the earth came into being. The deep was not when I was born, nor were the springs with their abounding waters. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I came to birth; before He had made the earth, the countryside, and the first elements of the world. When He fixed the heavens firm, I was there; when He drew a circle on the surfaces of the deep, when He thickened the clouds above, when the sources of the deep began to swell, when He assigned the sea its boundaries (and the waters will not encroach on the shore), when He traced the foundations of the earth. I was beside the Master Craftsman, delighting Him day after day, ever at play in His presence, to play everywhere on His earth, delighting to be with the children of men.” [Proverbs 8:22-31]
Wisdom appears to be a primary source for accessing and flowing the gifts of the Spirit to those that seek God (and Her), along with the powers of life in creation generally. Barker states that John “saw her as the seven torches before the throne, then giving birth to Her son, and finally as the tree of life, all in the holy of holies” (Revelation 4:5, 12:4-5, 22:1-2).
It was his great desire for “wisdom” in James 1:5 that motivated a young Joseph Smith to seek God in the Sacred Grove, leading to the First Vision. It reads, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” This scripture held great power for the young Prophet.
He wrote: “Never did any passage of scripture come with more power to the heart of man than this did at this time to mine. It seemed to enter with great force into every feeling of my heart. I reflected on it again and again, knowing that if any person needed wisdom from God, I did; for how to act I did not know, and unless I could get more wisdom than I then had, I would never know. . . . At length I came to the . . . determination to “ask of God,” concluding that if he gave wisdom to them that lacked wisdom, and would give liberally, and not upbraid, I might venture (JSH 2:12–13). It is no coincidence that the words vision and wisdom are tied together. Nor is it coincidence that Joseph went to a grove of trees to pray.
This is a prayer in song that is written to Heavenly Mother called DEVA PRAYER
The Divine Mother is everywhere. She is everything. She is the Divine essence that lives with in all beings. Her domain is the field of life, for she gives to all beings the sustenance that is needed for life. Her beauty lives in the natural world and spans the universe in all their splendor. She has been called by many names, for all traditions recognize Her. Into each consciousness, the knowledge is given of the sacredness of life. This sacredness is the Mother.
She is the holy generator of the physical world, joined to the heart and soul of every living thing. All the earth is one with Her. All beings of the earth owe their life to Her, for she is the Mother of all, the One who bestows all gifts of life. Her gifts come to the deserving and to the undeserving alike, for she sun does not choose upon whom to shine. She is the source of Divine blessing, the part of the Oneness that bestows the graces that fill life.
We have not seen Her because her being is cloaked in silence. She emerges now as part of the Oneness where she has always resided, blessing all, giving to all. All who bow before Her are sustained by the life with in them. All who honor Her are sustained by Her gifts both with in themselves and beyond.
The purpose of existence is to join with life that lives in all dimensions and all realms of being. It is the Mother that creates this evolving, unfolding journey, for she is the fabric of time itself, the means by which all things grow. She is the template for life that exists with in Her. She is the substance and form of all that shall ever come to be. May all be blessed by the blessings of the Divine Oneness.
If you would like to listen to it, you can hear it here:
All Mothers in the patriarchal-matriarchal order
Mothers typically receive such sacred knowledge as they have responsibility to know the child’s future. The mothers are responsible for the teaching and preparing of the children for their roles. A good example of this is Rebekah, in addition to teaching her children in preparation for coming ordinances, the matriarch also prepared a ritual meal before the blessing at Isaac’s hands. She also dressed Jacob in special clothing that she kept in preparation for the ordinance. On two occasions Rebekah commanded her son Jacob to, “. . obey my voice . . . (Gen. 27:8, 13).
According to Porter, “Holding a position of authority, the Matriarch directed her son in the arrangements that were to be made and the information that would be given to Isaac during the ritual blessing. She appeared not only to be fully acquainted with the liturgy, but also played a key role in the blessing itself. Jacob’s fears are manifested in his concern that he might appear to be the ‘deceiver’ (vs. 12) and that there would be ‘a curse…and not a blessing.’ This foreboding of Jacob was quickly silenced when ‘his mother said unto him, ‘Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey my voice . . .’
Only in a position of authority may one be responsible for the actions of another, as Rebekah promised she would be. Had this been a deception, Rebekah as well as her son Jacob would be held accountable. Yet neither are reprimanded in the scriptural text by Isaac or the Lord. Jacob’s mother accepted full responsibility for the correct or incorrect (as it seemed) performance and acceptability of this priesthood ordinance as executed by the Patriarch.
Rebekah prepared the ritual meal, and then took the ‘goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau.’ These ritual priesthood garments she kept in her house, and then clothed Jacob her younger son (vs. 15). Rebekah was in charge of, and maintained possession of the ‘goodly raiment’ or sacred vestments of the birthright son. These are the robes of authority that only the birthright son may wear, as he becomes the birthright son or patriarch, in preparation for the blessing clothed Jacob with the ‘goodly raiment’ of the firstborn.
This seems to imply that Rebekah’s responsibility was to prepare, clothe, and present the birthright son to her husband and patriarch. Rebekah knew the signs for which Isaac would be looking and prepared Jacob for the ordinance and blessing by placing these ‘signs of recognition,’ that the patriarch would recognize by touching Jacob’s hands through his veil of blindness.”
The Difference Between the Patriarchal and Matriarchal Order
There is essential only “one priesthood” or “one power” that all things are done by. The differences comes in the roles and responsibilities each of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine have IN their power. Male and female energy must come into balance and become one, for one cannot live with out the other, nor have joy or progress. We must think in unity with the Gods.
There are also distinct differences in the sexes and their roles. It would be futile for a man to operate in the Matriarchal order, to become pregnant, carry and nurture a child as a woman does. The same is true for a woman to take on the roles and responsibilities of the Patriarchal order. Both roles have unique purposes that work hand in glove in God’s divine plan. If both have this priesthood or power, what exactly is that power?
What is Priesthood?
Priesthood it is the word used in religious circles to denote power, so when the word priesthood is used, it is essentially “power” but what actually IS this power?
It is the power of the Gods by which all things are done. And all things by God are done in love and with love. Charity- which is the highest form of love, is the strength of His power. Who bestows charity? Who bestows priesthood? Priesthood or power given by God to those whom have built a relationship of trust with Him. These gifts can only come from one source, and that source is God. The requirement to receive this power and function with it, is a broken heart and a contrite spirit.
The carnal man tries to find happiness by changing his environment. The man of God changes the world by allowing God to change his heart.
Can a man and woman full of charity bind the enemy with love? Is charity power? Who can resist it? Was the Atonement wrought of, through, and because of charity? Are the chains and shackles of hell broken through it?
Do women have any of this power? Can women posses charity?
Note the following scripture: “…. and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile” (2 Nephi 26:33).
God gives liberally to all (James 1:5). If this includes salvation (2 Nephi 26:27), a cry of repentance (Alma 5:49), resurrection (Alma 11:44), the commandment to care for others (Alma 1:30), and the heavenly gift (4 Nephi 1:3), why would He exclude priesthood in His gifts – the power by which all things are done? Does not everyone need this? We read in 2 Nephi, “Behold, hath the Lord commanded any that they should not partake of his goodness? Behold I say unto you, Nay; but aall men are privileged the one blike unto the other, and none are forbidden” (2 Nephi 26:28).
Love and power are signs of Zion (the Earth raised in its frequency). Where all are equal in everything that the Lords has, and every good gift, He is no respecter of persons. Everything must come into this balance and be one. Women have a huge part in this, but only when there is balance. They, like men, have their important roles and responsibilities. Let women everywhere return to their Divine Nature and know the Divine Feminine in them. Let them help bring charity to this world by first changing themselves and letting God do the rest. In this way there will be better balance. In this way there will be power on the earth in His sons and daughters. it is said:
The world will step out of the way for the women who knows who she is and where she is going
The Matriarch & Priesthood in the Holy Order
A mother’s power is evident in her natural, inherent love for her children – a portion of God’s light. Both men and women receive power via the Holy Ghost, and when God, via His voice (or under His own hand) activates it. This typically occurs as part of one having their calling and election made sure. The requirement in D&C 84:21 – to receive the ordinances of the higher priesthood, may also include holding authority and power in it, thus providing ability to come into the presence of the Lord – for both women and men.
Though not connected to priesthood ordinances per se today, early Church history is full of examples of women blessing other women. Women would give blessings in connection with childbirth, for example, and blessing their own children as part of their responsibilities as loving mothers. The hands are simply symbolic, Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead simply spoke The Word and he arose. Women and well as men have the power to speak The Word, as well as participate and facilitate in ordinances. We simple need to know our roles and responsibilities.
In the Old Testament Zipporah circumcised her and Moses’ son, while Rebekah clothed her son Jacob in the priestly garment. Mary Magdalene in the New Testament washed Christ’s feet (potentially as His wife) in a very sacred rite connected to the highest levels of the Holy Order. In these and other examples, there is stability, unity and equality between the matriarch and the patriarch in the Holy Order, neither is the man without the woman, nor the woman without the man – in the Lord (1 Corinthians 11:11).
The Matriarch Roles
The five female roles as woman, wife, mother, daughter and sister, in God’s Holy Order as a matriarch, include the role of knowing the next king. A central theme of kings in ancient Egypt was the legitimate right to rule, and patriarchal succession within it. Kings were always concerned about their legitimacy, their real authority via a royal bloodline, assured only through the matriarchal line. The mother of the king knew who the father was. Kingship in Israel through the Davidic bloodline was equally important. In second Samuel 7, we read seven times that Davidic kingship is part of an eternal covenant God made with king David. It concerned future leadership over Israel as established through a special royal bloodline God carefully selected. It would feature the future deliverer of all mankind, Jesus Christ.
Throughout the ancient world we read of the Matriarch in the role of wife of the current king and mother of a future one. We also read of daughters or sisters to him. It was the Mother who chose the future king. As a mother she gave birth to, nursed, supported and protected the next king. Some of these roles lasted into his adulthood.
The woman was the only one who could assure the future king’s legitimacy, and thus his right to rule and reign (as king and priest) in Egypt or Israel, as she was the only one who knew the son’s patriarchal bloodline through his father (her husband). And significantly, it was her that God gave revelation – relative to who the next king would be among all her sons. This special male would become God’s chosen son – the “firstborn.” He was not necessarily the firstborn of the flesh, however.
Patterns in scripture reveal that he was always the “firstborn” of the Spirit, however, one with a pure heart, light as a feather. The twins Jacob and Esau provide a good example among many others in the Old Testament. Esau was born first, but Jacob was chosen by the Lord to be next king (leader over the Kingdom of Israel), assisted all along the way by Rebecca, the wife of the older patriarch and king – Isaac. She knew via revelation that Jacob was to be the “firstborn,” and thus she prepared him for it.
The importance of each role cannot be overstated, especially with regard to kingship. Ancient Egypt and Israel both provide important clarifying insights into the roles of the matriarch. Egypt gives us Hathor, Isis, Maat and Nepthys, for example (mother, wife, daughter and sister), and the clearest picture of matriarchal succession of the god-kings as pharaohs. The Old Testament, on the other hand, gives us Eve, Sarah and the two Marys, valiant mothers, with the clearest view of their “firstborn” sons, the new patriarch and king, and the specifics of his preparation and righteous service. The fourth “sister” role is more limited in scripture. Egypt provides better examples with Maat, normally a sister, but sometimes a daughter.

- Prepare “the rising sun” for his roles
Being of the Divine Feminine is power. It is the power to create and unconditional love. The woman’s power to create beauty all around her, in mother earth, in gardens, and her home, in her children and in her husband. The responsibilities of bringing things into order out of chaos. To recognize beauty and to beautify her surroundings, giving variety to the face of the earth. Being feminine is evident in dress and movement, in dancing and singing. God has given these talents to the woman to help balance out male energy and their responsibilities and roles.
Both male and female firm in their responsibilities, not usurping the others responsibilities or roles. Recognizing and giving equal respect and support to each other, end up blessing the lives of everything around them.
Here are some examples of Matriarchs in history:
1.Sarah, the Mother of Abraham’s child, Isaac
Abraham is called the great father of the faithful. His valiant and gifted wife Sarah is a notable example of three matriarchal roles; (1) she provided legitimacy for the future king’s right to rule and reign via a royal, patriarchal bloodline through Abraham, and her own, (2) she was a mother and preparer of the “firstborn” son, soon to be the new king, and (3) she was a female protector for both the current king Abraham and the future king Isaac, their son.
Sarah passed a very difficult test. She showed faithfulness in the face of great temptation, even though she lived the difficult life of a nomad with Abraham. Taken by two kings, she could have inherited great wealth, ease and fame with either of them, becoming recognized and pampered as their Queen. The offer in Egypt was especially difficult. According to some sources, she was there for two years, but did not consummate the marriage with Pharaoh.
In Abraham 1:11 we read of three virgins who refused a similar offer. They were sacrificed on the Lion Couch. Sarah was spared, never having to refuse the king’s advances. The “angel of the Lord’s presence” aided her in Egypt (the same angel also saved her son from Abraham’s knife on Isaacs own “altar”). This angel plagued Pharaoh and all his house with various maladies until he finally let her go.
2. Naamah, the wife of Noah
The name Haamah means “pleasing.” She was called so because of her good deeds. Naamah is called by God to gather the seeds of every type of plant upon the earth. She is aided in her mission by a great wind that gathers the seeds of the giant redwoods and cedar trees. After the ground is dry and firm, she then takes out all the seeds to plant them in the moist earth. She saved her family through her faith and belief in her ark-building husband. She enabled the future of the rest of mankind after her by being a type of Mother Eve. Man and woman have great power when they work equally together to save future generations.
3. Bath-Sheba, the Mother of David’s child, Solomon
Bath-sheba was the favored wife of king David. The Prophet Nathan reminded her of the promise that her son Solomon would become king of Israel upon David’s Death. With the Prophet Nathan’s help, Bath-sheba was successful in guaranteeing the kingship for Solomon (the birthright or “firstborn” blessing). Matriarchal authority is seen in David’s initial reference to Solomon as “Bath-sheba’s son.” Later, when he was recognized as heir to the throne, David referred to him as, “Solomon my son” (1 Kings 1:33). Solomon would later build the temple, with the inspired plans from his father.
4. Rebekah & her son Isaac
Rather than deception and control, Rebekah appears to have simply exercised her matriarchal authority in the story of Jacob and Esau, the twin offspring of Isaac and Rebekah. As Matriarch, her responsibility was to ensure that her younger and more righteous son Jacob receive the birthright blessing, not Esau, her literal firstborn (Genesis 25:10). She knew this because of revelation from God. Genesis chapter 25 informs us, that like a number of special mothers in the Old Testament, Rebekah was barren, desiring posterity.
Both parents prayed for the Lord’s blessing in this regard. “And Isaac entreated the LORD for his wife, because she [was] barren: and the LORD was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. The children struggled together within her; and she said, If [it be] so, why [am] I thus? She went to inquire of the LORD. And the LORD said unto her, Two nations [are] in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and [the one] people shall be stronger than [the other] people; the elder shall serve the younger. And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, [there were] twins in her womb” (Gen. 25:22-23).
Through revelation Rebekah had learned that “two nations” were within her, and that “the elder shall serve the younger’.” Isaac did not receive the revelation. This was not his role. His duty was to give the patriarchal blessing, also receiving insights from God.
5. Eve the Mother of All Living
God after seeing that it is not good that the man should be alone decides then to create a “help meet” for him. “Help meet for him” in Hebrew is ezer kenegdo. The Hebrew noun ezer describes an equal. Ezer in the Old Testament is most frequently used to describe how God is an ezer to man. It does not have the connotation of a mere “helper” in any cases in which it is used. A more accurate translation would be a “power” or “strength”. The noun ezer occurs 21 times in the Hebrew Bible. In eight of these, the word means “savior.”
The second word kenegdo which means “exactly corresponding to” in Mishnaic Hebrew the root kened means “equal”. The King James translation of kenegdo for “meet for” is based on the seventeenth-century meaning of “meet” as “worthy of”. Which has been long out of its current usage. The scriptures clearly teach that God crated woman to be a unified partner to her husband, exactly corresponding to him in every way.
God knowing no one could go though the battles of life alone and win, created an equal companion for man who would fulfill all of these above meanings. Woman would be a strength to him and at times rescue him with insights and her intuition. Woman is man’s greatest ally. God created her to be an ezer to man, his strength and power when all things are in balance.
One of the things God has given her is enmity – for evil. Unlike men, scriptures and teach us that the Matriarch is blessed with an inherent abhorrence to evil. This is called “enmity.” It was Eve who recognized Satan and pointed him out, recognizing the face of evil. The first matriarch Eve, “the mother of all living” was promised that “enmity” would provide her and the seed of the woman (her children) some power in the world of wickedness. The power of inherent love for her offspring.
6. Pharoah’s daughter, the Mother of Moses
In Exodus 2:10 we read of Moses who was brought, “unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses.” Pharaoh’s daughter was within her rights to present Moses as heir to the Egyptian throne. This is seen in Hebrews 11:24, 25 where the Apostle Paul writes that when Moses, “was come to years, [he] refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.”
The right to rule in Egypt came through the maternal line of the mother or wife of Pharaoh (matrilineal). Yet the right to rule was inherent in the male (patriarchal). Though Moses rejected the worldly throne of matriarchal Egypt, he later married the daughter of “the priest of Midian,”. In her line he then received priesthood from Jethro, the father of his wife, to fulfill his role as teacher, priest, prophet, patriarch and king over all Israel (D&C 84:6). Thus Moses received his “firstborn” status through the matriarchal lineage of his mother.
7. Zipporah, the Mother of Moses’s child
Consistent with her matriarchal responsibilities, Zipporah, the wife of Moses, made sure her children received the ordinances required by the Lord. One male child did not receive the ordinance of circumcision at the hands of her husband. We read in JST Exodus 4:25-26, “Then Zipporah took a sharp stone and circumcised her son, and cast the stone at his [Moses’] feet, and said, Surely thou art a bloody husband unto me. And the Lord spared Moses and let him go, because Zipporah, his wife, circumcised the child.” Moses’ life was spared or “protected” because his inspired wife performed the circumcision required for their son. Moses was apparently too busy taking care of other families through Melchizedek priesthood service, apparently neglecting his own patriarchal duties.
8. Eluma- The Mother of Samson, wife of Manoah
There was a certain man whose “name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.” The scriptural story of Samson in Judges chapter 13. The text continues: “And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her…thou shalt conceive, and bear a son” (Judges 13:3). In verses four and five the angel tells Eluma that this child will be a Nazarite (one consecrated to God via covenant, see Numbers 6), and “shall begin to deliver Israel.”
She runs to tell her husband who believes her but seeks his own witness. Again the angel of the Lord reappears, but comes only to Eluma as she sat in the field. She rushes to find her husband and bring him the man of God. Manoah asks “How shall we order the child, and how shall we do unto him?” the angel does not give any further guidelines about how the child should be raised, except to repeat the same dietary restrictions, adding only ”all that I commanded let her observe”. Apparently, the angel felt that the primary responsibility for the righteous rearing of the child, lay with his mother.
Here again it is the matriarch that receives revelation concerning the child’s future. And significantly, one who will deliver Israel (physically) in preparation for the one who will deliver it spiritually, the Savior Jesus Christ.
9. Judith- Woman of strength and independence
In the book of Judith, it tells her story as she lives in a time of war. King Nebuchadnezzar is sending his army about destroying cities. She being a widow and a woman of devotion, and after three years from her husbands death, she continues to mourn, wearing sackcloth, fasting every day, except one meal at night. Nobody spoke ill of her. She feared the Lord. In the story the army is about to come upon her town. The people are praying. Judith decides to prepare herself, to go before the armies. She prays, washes, and anoints herself.
After her spiritual preparation, she dresses her self and leaves the city with her maid and a few provisions. They get arrested and go before the commander of the army. She talks him into believing she is going to help him, and he invites her to a dinner party and then gets drunk. Judith prays for strength and cuts off the head of the man in a drunken stupor using his won sword. She then goes back to her city. The people then prepare for battle, eventually defeating the Assyrian army. All the women of the city come to see Judith and dance in her honor. She responds by leading them in a victory dance, singing praises to the Lord.
10. Aseneth the wife of Joseph in Egypt
In some sources, Aseneth is portrayed as being a virgin of eighteen years, very tall and beautiful. Being raised in Egyptian ways she does not know the God of Israel, Joseph’s God. Later when Joseph’s arrival is announced, when she sees him her body trembles at his magnificent appearance. She goes weak in the knees. Her soul is crushed with fear. Her father bids her to kiss her “brother.” Joseph refuses the kiss saying it is not fit for a man who worships God. He affirms that it is fitting that he kiss only his mother, sisters, and the wife of his bed; to kiss others would be an “abomination before the Lord God.” In being sensitive, he places his hand on her head and blesses her.
Aseneth then withdraws to her tower where she repents, prays, and fasts for days. On the 8th day she lifts her head a little form the floor and the ashes on which she is laying, but is weak from want of food for 7 days. She utters a pitiful prayer to the true God of Joseph. She prays again for courage to ask for forgiveness, she confesses her sins and prays for acceptance. After Asenath’s confession, the Lord gives her a sign in the heavens and she recognizes it as a sign of her acceptance. As she ponders this and continues to look up, a “great and unutterable light” appears. A man comes from heaven and stands at her head in her chamber.
The glorious man informs her that he is the commander for the whole host of the Most High and that he has a message for her. He instructs her to go to her second chamber and change out of her mourning attire. She is to change and put on a clean linen robe and girdle of her virginity before he conveys the message.
The angel then gives her “white honey like the dew of heaven”, a symbol of her royal status and enlightenment. The angel then rubbed the honeycomb and “vast numbers of bees issued forth form it, all white as snow; they alighted on Asenath, the queen bees gathering on her face and making honeycomb in her mouth.” Eating this heaven-sent food was thought to have power to open one’s eyes to spiritual things. This providing greater understanding of potential royal heritage, and true identity. We read in 1 Samuel 14:27, “And he put forth the end of the rod, and dipped it in the honeycomb. And he carried his hand to his mouth and his eyes were enlightened.” Joseph returns the next day and doesn’t recognize her and they are married.
11. Sistis, the wife of Job
In the pseudepigraphic Testament of Job we read her portion of the story, not just Job’s. She having lost everything in her trials, including her children, resorts to begging and working as a slave to get food for her family, and to feed Job who is sick. She even gets to the point where she cuts off her hair, selling it for bread. Satan, in disguise of a bread seller, tells her that for her hair she can get three loaves of bread. Shaving one’s head in that day was a sign of disgrace, for a woman’s hair was her veil and covering.
Although her strength temporarily wavers because of Satan’s powerful influence, the portrait of a once- proud and wealthy woman, selling her hair to feed her children and rescue her husband is a powerful one. What would have happened to Job and the children if she had not worked as a servant in order to feed them? It is likely he would have not lived to have all blessings restored.
Having the same experience of other matriarchs and their “firstborn” sons, the future birth of the Savior of the world was given to the matriarch Mary. Only this time it was before the expectant mother was even married. Maintaining the pattern of a royal bloodline, and through both lines (like Abraham and Sarah). Mary (and her mortal husband) also possessed a royal lineage. It was also the patriarchal lineage of God the Father, that further insured the legitimacy of Christ’s right to rule and reign, as the King of kings on the earth.
Rather than revelation only, the angel Gabriel came in person to a young, highly favored Mary, announcing that she would become the mother of God’s Son on earth. Mary’s conception would be even more miraculous than that of Sarah’s. This special literal and spiritual “firstborn” son would be born to a virgin. Gabriel informed her that He would be called, “Son of the Highest; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David” (Luke 1:32). He would become the prototype Davidic King. Shedding His blood for the liberty of the people He loved.
Like other mothers of miraculous births, many of them Nazarites in the Old Testament, Mary “kept all these sayings in her heart” (Luke 2:51). She later presented the Christ child to the Father at the temple (Luke 2:21-39), as did Hannah (mother of the Prophet Samuel, thought to be a Nazarite from birth). Mary, like Hannah (and Manoah’s wife, the mother of Samson), may have also fulfilled a Nazarite vow in presenting her firstborn son Jesus to serve the Lord as a Nazarite priest. He hailed from Nazareth, His hometown. There he began His mission at age thirty, when he stood up in the Synagogue quoting Isaiah chapter 61.
Examples of Prophetesses in Scripture
Each of the five roles of those in the patriarchal or Holy Order (teacher, priest, prophet, king and patriarch) has a female counterpart, including “Prophet.” We see a total of ten “Prophetesses in the Bible, for example, five in both the Old and New Testaments. Joel 2:28-29 tells us that in the last days, there will be an increase in both men and women with spiritual gifts. Moses, in Numbers 11:29, stated, “…would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets [women and men], and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!” His statement was made in response to those who objected to the “seventy elders” of Israel who also prophesied, “when the spirit rested upon them…and did not cease” (Numbers 11:24-26).
Marital status was not a prerequisite for a “Prophetess.” Of the ten female prophetesses so named in scripture, three were married (Deborah, Huldah, and Isaiah’s wife), one was a widow (Anna), and four were virgins at the time (Philip’s daughters). Two do not have their marital status mentioned (Miriam and Noadiah). What is obvious is that God gave certain women His divine approval and authority to speak and act on His behalf.
They also had a protective role, delivering the people in some fashion. Even during times when women held low standing in the eyes of men (throughout much of the world’s history), scripture provides stories of women in God-given positions of power, authority, and influence. As always, the “weak things of the world” often reveal “mighty” works (1 Corinthians 1:26-31). This “weakness” is often revealed in their lowly stations of birth, Christ, for example, born in a manager within a cave.
The ten “prophetesses” named in scripture include; (1) Miriam (Exodus 15:20), (2) Deborah (Judges 4:4), (3) Huldah (2 Kings 22:14), (4) Isaiah’s wife (Isaiah 8:3), and (5) Noadiah (Nehemiah 6:14). In the New Testament we read of five more; (6) Anna (Luke 2:36-38), (7-10) and the four daughters of Philip (Acts 21:9). Each of their stories is revealing, especially those of Deborah and Miriam.
Other spiritually gifted women in scripture
Though these are not specifically named as “Prophetesses”, they include: Rachel (Genesis 30:24), Hannah (1 Samuel 2:1-10), Abigail (1 Samuel 25:28-31), Elisabeth (Luke 1:41-45), and Mary the mother of Christ (Luke 1:46-55). Sarah the wife of Abraham and Esther are also thought to have had important spiritual “gifts.” The Prophetess Huldah (2 Kings 22:14) was a contemporary of the Prophet Jeremiah. Five important officials, including Israel’s High Priest, sought out her useful counsel. She authenticated “the book of the law” that Josiah found. She confirmed in it a grim prophecy of Israel’s future and divine judgment.
A Call to Return to UNITY
There are Seven Symbols of Oneness found all over in our world today. Symbols that have been used in so many ways, in buildings, advertising, logos, businesses, tattoos etc. They address the balance of male and female in many ways and include:
- Yin – Yang (two opposing curved forms, one white, one black)
- Star of David (two opposing triangles)
- Seal of Melchizedek (two offset square outlines [45 degrees])
- Inverted Pentagram (with Upright Pentagon Inside)
- Two Opposing Spirals (facing each other – sun and moon)
- Vesica-Pisces (almond-shaped area created by two over lapping circle outlines)
- The Squared-Circle (circumference of the circle nearly equaling the perimeter of the square)
In them we see that God addresses the completion and unity of male and female. Becoming one with Him, and one with each other, is their focus as part of the great family of God. Everything in heaven is done by the powers of love and creation. Both are necessary for anything to operate efficiently in heaven, working in perfect unity and cooperation.
Dividing male and female energy, we can associate Love with the Male and Creation with the Female. As it is the gift for woman to hold seed and bear children, the pattern is the same. The men need to function out of love or they have no power. The female creates, and in that comes more love and creation. This in turn gives the male more power/love to then give her more power… and creation goes on and on.
Creation has seeds and love is what activates those seeds, then creation happens
When you have created something what is the first emotion that you feel? LOVE! Love for that creation and the Joy that comes from new life. And when more love is created and felt then there is power to create more! Love is an actual power that is in everything and through everything, a tangible energy that can move and lift.
The love the Divine Masculine provides and the creation the Divine Feminine provides, is the constant cycle that powers the universes. The each feed one another, and can not exist with out each other. From love comes our creations, and from those creations more love is developed, and so the process continues for eternity and grows exponentially!
The frequency for Love is 528Hz (5+2+8=15, 1+5=6) and the frequency for Creation is 432Hz (4+3+2=9). The number 9 is the number symbolized in creation. Bringing these frequencies back in our lives can return us to what we are used to- from the home we all came from.
We cannot change this divided world until we have first changed ourselves. Knowing that it will all come together in Gods hands, into a more perfect balance, we can stay in trust and peace. We can only change ourselves, and it can start with us. Love is the emotion felt in the heart.
The ancient Egyptians appear to have illustrated the need for love via the condition of the heart. It was the only organ left and kept in the body during the embalming process for kings like Tutankhamun. All other organs were removed, embalmed and stored separately, except the brain, which was discarded. The heart was considered the seat of intelligence and right action.
The Divine Feminine and role of females is to create, make things beautiful, dance, praise and sing to God, and teach the children. Because of the Holy Spirit, woman is intuitive and soft, graceful and strong in her own way. We can take the lessons we learn from the women we have read about here into our own lives. Women can be strong and are given power by God to fulfill their missions and roles. One of those roles to is empower the men. As women return to their divine nature, the men will return to theirs. Then there will be unity and harmony once again.
