Stop and Be in the Beauty – Reconnecting to the Sacred Feminine

Stop and Be in the Beauty – Reconnecting to the Sacred Feminine

The Sacred Feminine comes as a gentle touch upon our shoulder inviting us to stop and simply be in the magic of the present moment. She holds us as we transition from the night dreams to the day dreams creating space for us to be in the yearning, the desire to learn and grow. She fills us with love and awe as we wander the woods connecting to our sisters and brothers.  She reminds us to be aware of their Beauty everywhere; moss clinging to tree-trunks, the play of light and shadow on leaves, buzzing honey bees drinking from the flowers, stones revealing healing patterns.  We are with all of them, our senses expanded in intimate connection, appreciating each one and open to receive information.

Then from Her depths there is a whisper, ‘Come. It is time.”

Following that call one day, I found myself sitting on the towpath next to a swan’s nest, watching as a cygnet pecked its way from the darkness of the egg to the light of this world. A miracle of the dance of the NotTwo. What an honour to be invited to witness such an intimate moment. To share in the joy of another Spirit Being coming into form.

At the time I didn’t fully appreciate what I was experiencing. I had forgotten the truth – that all things are born out of the Sacred Feminine and that it is the dance of the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine, that creates everything. That it begins with the Sacred Feminine; the silence of the Mystery in which anything is possible and nothing has yet come into form. Until that moment when the urge to create becomes an imperative and the Sacred Masculine, the Light, the Sound, bursts forth from the Void and something is formed.

Indeed I spent many years denying this understanding. Preferring to consider myself as a ‘human’ rather than being a female. Not appreciating my unique gifts as a woman nor recognizing which aspects of me were from the Sacred Feminine and which were from the Sacred Masculine.  Rebelling against the inequalities I experienced as a woman in the workplace and elsewhere. Better to ignore the subtleties of this dance, than to be treated with disdain because I was female.

It was the Origin Teachings of the Delicate Lodge that finally brought me home to Wholeness. Learning that the Women hold the centre and the Men guard the perimeter. Remembering how both reside in me. Spending time in the darkness and the silence, Being.  Then manifesting through the energy of the Sacred Masculine. It required a deep listening and a practice of getting out of the way, anything that was stopping me from living into my Sacred Dream.

In that remembering, I recognised that the Mother Earth and all her children have always been my first love. The Teachings deepened that love, a love of the utter magic of this world.  They fueled a curiosity to explore, to be in intimate relationship with Life. The natural world is a portal for me into the Mystery, to the Sacred Feminine. And my expression of that relationship found its voice through Photography. Oftentimes when I am taking photographs I feel like I am falling into whatever it is I am seeing and literally becoming One with. I experience the everchanging moment, the dance of all the elements, seen and unseen, that come together to create that unique moment; a moment that will never be repeated.

Sometimes I don’t even fully ‘see’ everything that is before me and it is not until I take the time later to look at the image on my computer that I see what was hidden; I see the energy that was tapping on my shoulder and saying, “Look, look this way. See me”. The invitation from the Other to meet them in their Essence, an Essence born of their StarSeed potential, that first yearning in the darkness of No Thing. It truly is a journey to perceive in a different way. How the opportunity to listen for that voice from the Sacred Feminine, to let her grow inside and to hear that whisper (sometimes it’s even a shout or a clamour of multiple voices) from the stone, or the tree, the swan, or the water, saying “See me, I’m here, over here. Come and say hello. Be with me a while.” It is an opportunity to come into deep relationship with the animals, and the plants, the sky nation and the water, the ThunderBeings and the ants; all Life.

My invitation this day to you is to stop and watch the video below. Simply immerse yourself in the Sacred Feminine.  Then let your senses open to my Essence Reflections that come through Her.

Accalia is a Council Guide, a Photographer, a Swan Rescuer and, at heart she is a Nomad

Having experienced the power of the Origin Teachings of the Delicate Lodge in her own life about ten years ago she stepped forward as a Guide to support WhiteEagle Woman on her Medicine training programmes. In following the words of the Chiefs to ‘Breathe these teachings into the world. It is time and maybe some good will come of this“, she has shared this Ancient Wisdom across Europe and the US.

Her passion is photography – a creative expression of her relationship with Mother Life and this world in which we live. She explores the interweaving of essence-energies that forge each moment and captures this as a moment of magic. Her images tell stories of the dance between the seen and the unseen and her deepest desire is that these ‘moments’ help people reconnect to their thread in this weave. 

When back home in England, Accalia is involved with the charity Swan Support and spends many hours picking up injured swans and transporting them to the treatment centre. She has developed a very intimate relationship with the Swan Nation as evidenced by some of her imagery.

Accalia moves around the planet, being curious about the world and its people, adventures that often lead to the delight of striking up conversations with people to learn more of who they are.
