As a Priestess who has heard the call to help empower the Divine Feminine, when I came across this beautiful piece from Sophie Bashford, my heart soared. As women, we have heard the call to awaken to our truth and to embrace our light. Going forth, we stand our ground with confidence and conviction. We know our worth and we are fully aware that we deserve the same amount of love we put out into the world. We understand that the road is never easy, but wow is it worth the ride.
As we walk our path, we can’t help but to empower and inspire those to whom we cross paths. We refuse to settle, especially when it comes to relationships. We are wild women. We are here to make a stance and to reclaim our power. We won’t heed because we know what is right. We believe in standing up for truth and to live our lives embracing all facets of the human experience. We are here to Awaken the Goddess within. We are here to anchor in the Divine Feminine and to help restore humanity and the planet as we know it. We are here to honor our sisters and to support our brothers. We are here to help transform our men and our lovers. We are here to unleash and heal the Wild Woman once and for all. Rise Goddess Rise.
“If you choose to love an awakened woman, understand that you are entering into new, radical and challenging territory. If you choose to love an awakened woman, you cannot stay asleep. If you choose to love an awakened woman, every part of your Soul will be aroused, not just your sexual organs or even your heart. Frankly, if you prefer a normal life, stick with a normal girl. If you want a tame life, seek only a woman who has allowed herself to be tamed. If you only want to dip your toe into the flowing waters of Shakti, stay with the safe, tamed woman who has not yet plunged into the wildness of the Sacred Feminine ocean.
It is comfortable to love a woman who has not yet activated her inner sacred powers, because she does not push your buttons. She will not challenge you. She will not press you into becoming your highest Self. She will not awaken the forgotten and numbed-out parts of your Spirit that urge you to remember that there is more to your Life here than this. She will not look into your weary eyes and send a lightning bolt of Truth through your body, jolting you awake and stirring long-lost desires for Soul Love within you. A safe, unawakened woman will be wonderfully satisfying and soothing to your ego, heart, and body. She will walk quietly beside you and make you feel needed, responsible, like you are fulfilling your manly role.
If this is enough for you then accept it, love her with all your heart, remain faithful to her and thank her daily for the gift of her mild, unthreatening feminine presence in your life. If this is not enough for you – if your heart, body and spirit is only craving the ‘other kind of woman’, the Wild One – then know that you are on the cusp of Soul-Shifting transformation. Know that you are making a serious choice with karmic consequences. If you choose to step into the aura and body of a woman whose spiritual fires are blazing, you are accepting that you need a certain level of danger and risk in order to grow.
Once you begin to love a woman of this nature, you must accept total responsibility for the life-changes that will then ensue. Your life will not be sleepily comfortable all the time. Your life will not allow you to stay stuck in old ruts and stagnant routines. Your life will take on a radically-new flavour and scent. You will be ignited by the presence of the Wild Feminine, and it will begin to send electric shockwaves of spiritual Light through your entire chakra system, attuning you to the Call of the Divine. Choosing to be sexually and romantically-intimate with an awakened woman takes masculine courage to walk fearlessly into the Unknown. But it will reap rewards beyond your mind’s comprehension.
She will take you into undiscovered worlds of mystery and magic. She will lead you, mesmerised and half-drunk with love, into the wild forests of sensual ecstasy and wonder. She will show you sacred skies so full and burning with stars that you will start to wonder if you are still living on the same planet that you were born on. She will break and tear you open so that your fierce, passionate heart drives you half-mad with longing. You will want to consume and penetrate her on every level so that your Masculine Essence can consume and penetrate the world – illuminating the Universe with your devoted Love. She will see you like you’ve never been seen before. She will trust you. She will appreciate you. She will acknowledge your efforts to make her happy. She will value everything good that you do, and everything good that you are. She will not run from your darkness, because your darkness does not scare her. She will embrace, kiss, caress and love you back to Life. She will speak words that your Soul understands. She will not punish you for your mistakes.
It is a monumental risk to love an awakened woman, because there is suddenly no place to hide. She sees everything, therefore she can love you with a depth and presence that your heart and body have yearned for so hard, so long, so fiercely…that you wonder whether you have actually been alive for all the time that she has been away. Loving a woman like this is a choice you make to start living with your Soul on fire. Your life will never be the same again once you’ve invited her energy in. Take this risk on yourself, or step back, stay with the normal girl and accept a different, safer, more comfortable and somewhat calmer life. Just make sure that if you choose the latter, you don’t spend the rest of your days with your eyes looking back over your shoulder, straining to see once again the hazy vision of Feminine Mystery that has now disappeared from view. She has long gone..spiralling back up to the Stars, the distant Galaxies and the Heavens…from where She came.”
