Daughters , I AM .

I am the daughter of a daughter.


Who is the daughterof a daughter.


Who is also the daughterof a daughter.


Some of us are mothersbut all of us are daughters,all

birthed through linesthat weave back tothat First

Mother.


All connected fromthe very beginning.All connected in

the now.


Mothers,Daughters,Grandmothers,Great

Grandmothers,Great Great Grandmothers.All daughters

born fromOne. Original. Egg.fromOne. Original. Woman.


So why the separation?Why the animosity toward each

other?Why the arguing and fighting,back-stabbing and

lack of support?


The next time you see another woman,look in her eyes

and see theAncestral Lines – the lines of women –that

lead back to you.


Where are we going Mother?And how will we get there

Sister?By staying connected Daughterand allowing for

difference.


For we are each one,after all,all Daughtersof Daughters

Of Daughtersof ourOne Mother.

Woman’s Rights

“Rather than fighting for every woman’s right to feel beautiful, I would like to see the return of a kind of feminism that tells women and girls everywhere that maybe it’s all right not to be pretty and perfectly well behaved. That maybe women who are plain, or large, or old, or differently abled, or who simply don’t give a damn what they look like because they’re too busy saving the world or rearranging their sock drawer, have as much right to take up space as anyone else.
I think if we want to take care of the next generation of girls we should reassure them that power, strength and character are more important than beauty and always will be, and that even if they aren’t thin and pretty, they are still worthy of respect. That feeling is the birthright of men everywhere. It’s about time we claimed it for ourselves.” -Laurie Penny

Witches -WiseWoman

It was not witches who burned.It was women.Women who were seen as-Too beautifulToo outspokenHad too much water in the well (yes, seriously)Who had a birthmarkWomen who were too skilled with herbal medicineToo loudToo quietToo much red in her hairWomen who had a strong nature connectionWomen who dancedWomen who sungor anything else, really.
ANY WOMAN WAS AT RISK OF BURNING IN THE SIXTEEN HUNDREDSSisters testified and turned on each other when their babies were held under ice.Children were tortured to confess their experiences with “witches” by being fake executed in ovens.Women were held under water and if they floated, they were guilty and executed.If they sunk and drowned, they were innocent.Women were thrown off cliffs.Women were put in deep holes in the ground.
The start of this madness was years of famine, war between religions, and lots of fear. The churches said that witches, demons, and the devil did exist, and women were nothing but trouble. As we see even today, there is often a scapegoat created, and the chaos escalated in Sweden when the Bible became law and everything that did not line up with what the church said became lethal. The Bible fanaticism killed thousands of women. Everything connected to a woman became feared, especially her sexuality. It became labeled as dark and dangerous and was the core of the witch trials throughout the world.
Why do I write this?Because I think the usage of words are important, especially when we are doing the work to pull these murky, repressed and forgotten about stories to the surface. Because knowing our history is important when we are building the new world. When we are doing the healing work of our lineages and as women. To give the women who were slaughtered a voice, to give them redress and a chance of peace.
It was not witches who burned.It was women.

Age, Looks and Character

“Don’t prioritise your looks my friend,they won’t last the journey.Your sense of humour though, will only get better.Your intuition will grow and expand like a majestic cloak of wisdom.Your ability to choose your battles, will be fine-tuned to perfection.Your capacity for stillness, for living in the moment, will blossom.And your desire to live each and every moment will transcend all other wants.Your instinct for knowing what (and who) is worth your time, will grow and flourish like ivy on a castle wall.Don’t prioritise your looks my friend,they will change forevermore,that pursuit is one of much sadness and disappointment.Prioritise the uniqueness that make you you, and the invisible magnet that draws in other like-minded souls to dance in your orbit.These are the things which will only get better.”

Matriarchies Are Not Just a Reversal of Patriarchies: A Structural Analysis by Heide Goettner-Abendroth

“”Matriarchies are not just a reversal of patriarchies, with women ruling over men – as the usual misinterpretation would have it. Matriarchies are mother-centered societies. They are based on maternal values: care-taking, nurturing, mothering. This holds for everybody: for mothers and those who are not mothers, for women and men alike.

Matriarchal societies are consciously built upon maternal values and motherly work, and this is why they are much more realistic than patriarchies. They are, on principle, need-oriented. They aim to meet everyone’s needs with the greatest benefit. So, in matriarchies, mothering – which originates as a biological fact – is transformed into a cultural model. This model is much more appropriate to the human condition than the patriarchal conception of motherhood which is used to make women, and especially mothers, into slaves.”
