Hildegard of Bingen: The Sacred Feminine
Benedictine Abbey of St. Hildegard, Ebingen, Germany.
The Sacred Feminine, the energy of creation
that succors, nurtures, and fuels cosmic growth.
Ann: I hear the words, The Sacred Feminine, and know that someone wants to speak with me. Miriam?
Mary Magdalene: Yes, of course, but I am not the only one.
Ann: St Hildegard?*
Hildegard of Bingen: Yes. I worship the Lady Mother, the Mary of Christendom, the one who showed us the fullness of creation, the one who came with light so true as to shine through the darkest times.
She knew, she inspired, and she carried the Sacred Feminine which she passed on to her Son, the Light of the Creator through the light channel of her body to the light in his own, the Son, the Saviour, the One in All, the Christos who holds light and dark in holy equilibrium.
Mary Magdalene was the other half of the light force of the Christ, and the sacred feminine was not in one but in both, for each could hold the disparity, the building energies, and release them into the creating whole.
I brought the Sacred Feminine in to my part of the world through their offices, through the poetry, song, and radical devotion of a gathering of women who understood their own power and helplessness, always in service to the Great Unifier.
We were seen as a threat, and in time were essentially shut down, but our voices remain strong. Today the threat to the Sacred Feminine is once again real, and we are feared even as panic sounds the death knell to those who would claim power for themselves over half of creation. They are lost because, in so doing, they deny themselves the essential blessings of the Sacred Feminine, blessings necessary to sustain life in any form.
When you gesture loudly, when you proclaim your rights above others, when you try to feed your own soul at the expense of your fellows, you deny the Sacred Feminine, and the result is depletion and rabid aggression in service to an insatiable appetite which only what you seek to destroy can fill.
The falsity of this war on upon our brothers and sisters by those who seek only their own replication in power is coming to an end, and the death throes of this once might construct is fearsome as the scales are ripped from our eyes, and we begin to understand that the emperor and his cohorts, feared for so long, has no clothes.
At this time we pray for the blessing of forgiveness for ourselves and for all who have given credence to the illusion that some of us are better than others by virtue of gender, colour, position, or creed.
Truth be told, the fight is over though the suffering is not. Once again we see the forces of destruction let loose upon the world by those who have chosen to abandon the Sacred Feminine, the energy of creation that succors, nurtures, and fuels cosmic growth.
We are all in one and one in all. We cannot separate ourselves from the whole without destroying our own souls. This time we are seeing that our differences, the many-shaped facets of a multicolored, infinite, and evolving crystal, generate the living cosmos.
We will grow together or not at all until even the most forlorn among us is forced to recognize that there is no hierarchy in souls. This time we turn the corner.

*Hildegard of Bingen (also known as Hildegarde von Bingen, (1098-1179 CE) was a Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, and polymath proficient in philosophy, musical composition, herbology, medieval literature, cosmology, medicine, biology, theology, and natural history. She refused to be defined by the patriarchal hierarchy of the church and, although she abided by its strictures, pushed the established boundaries for women almost past their limits.
