3-star review? I’m so Happy!!

star-3789708_640

I recently saw that my podcastthe Art & Science of Feminity, has a 3 star review. When I looked closely to discover why I received that rating, I discovered I had one:

finger-3530353_640

and the other:

criticism-3083101_640

I was so elated!!

This meant I did not have two 3-star ratings!

I did not have two people that said ‘I feel lukewarm about her‘.

Instead, I had two very passionate people saying two different things:

I really love her material and feel it has value my life!

&

I really do not vibe with her content at all.

Whew! That is so much better than being labelled as lukewarm. I rather have people love me or hate me, but never so-so or lukewarm about me 🙂 Those raters made my day!!

Although….if I’m not feeling someone’s show, if I know it’s not for me, I just click off or find one that is. Personally I do not want to hurt someone’s online presence, even if I feel they are wrong, because I know it’s gold to others trusting in you and their info might be for someone else out there.

So I don’t understand the reason I received a one star? Especially when I pour my time talent and heart into everything I do, unless that rater may be a Feminist. If so, I don’t understand why they’d tune in to listen to my show, unless they are ready to go Feminine! But we currently have freedom of choice, so I digress….I’m just so relieved that someone does connect with my show and that I didn’t get 3 stars from two people.

What’s your opinion on this?

Keeping Yourself Sane (in pandemics)

, , , , ,

With all the talk about being isolated, stuck and quarantined, I think one needs to stay mentally healthy during this time as equal to, if not more than, one’s physical health. 
Here are some ways to do that:
woman-wearing-blue-jacket-sitting-on-chair-near-table-1326947
1. Study a topic you’ve always wanted to learn more about. They’re are now numerous online FREE classes you can take from universities, apps, and organizations. Take advantage while it’s available. Do a search online to find the perfect one for you.

2. Make your environment more excellent by keeping everything cleaned deeply, organized well, and neatly designed. Maybe do some low cost redecorating to make your space more suitable for full time at home living. Look on Pinterest or Youtube for ideas.
photo-of-man-and-woman-having-fun-with-their-child-3820065
3. Take time to be present with your immediate family, to fully experience their presence, and engage in their lives. Research ways to spend unique time with them.
woman-in-white-tank-top-while-looking-herself-at-a-mirror-3811809
4. Develop & invest in yourself and character. Do you need to forgive anyone? Are you envious of someone you know? Have you purposely done any one harm, whether great or small? Time to purify yourself of any evil within & have God cleanse you with His goodness. Prayer, mediation, and reading HIs Word will help you do this, as well as asking the Holy Spirit to bring to your attention things you need to perfect in yourself.

5. Make new friends online. Humans were created for social connections and need them more so during this time. Find the best social media outlet for you and befriend someone or many!

The Classic Prophetess

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Amidst all of the Male Prophets we grow up learning about, did you know that there were also Women recorded in history as Prophets? That’s right! Among the Major & Minor Prophets as Recorded in their Self-Named Books, like Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, & Daniel, we have EIGHT Female Prophetesses. Gives new thought to women not speaking up in a religious atmosphere, doesn’t it??

Even though 1-4 “verses” or lines were written about each one, we can learn much from those few words about their character, as well as the historical time they lived in.

But first test – Can you guess who they were?

  1. Who was the sister of a major Old Testament Prophet that was also the first recorded Praise Team Leader?
  2. Who were the four unnamed Woman Prophets?
  3. Which female Prophetess was also a Judge in Israel?
  4. Which Prophetess from the tribe of A’ser, spoke over the child Jesus?

Answers at the bottom!

Exodus 15:20-21 – Miriam – we know her as a dancer, a singer, and an instrumentalist (she played the Tamborine), she also also prone to jealously over her brother, but most of the time obeyed the Lord’s authority

Judges 4:4 – Deborah – this woman was know for the place she dwelled, under a tree, as people came to her continually for judgement in Israel, and she led the people in a victorious war over their enemies and sung about it afterward

II Kings 22:14 – Huldah – while dwelling in a college, she had connections in constant conversations with high level people, like the priests & the wardrobe keeper’s wife and she was well-respected

Luke 2:36-38 – Anna – it is said she as a older woman of great virtue, served God by fasting and prayers ever day and night, so she could see the Lord clearly when he arrived in Jerusalem

Acts 21:8-9 – 4 Virgin Daughters – as some of the disciples with Paul lodged temporarily with Philip, known as the evangelist, it was noted that his daughters were reputed to be not only chaste but prophetic in their role in the region

These woman are historical proof that the female gender was also respected in the role of a Prophet. The Lord Himself, whom sent them to proclaim, announce, and expose things, was with them. He spoke to them and did not let one of their prophecies be untrue.

Those, usually men whom are very religious and strict by ancient law, already fulfilled (not eradicated, but fulfilled), who said a woman cannot and should not speak in the ‘church’ in quoting one Scripture, not with full knowledge of the culture, custom, and answers to a concern at one time in history, should realize that before there was a ‘church building or religious gathering‘, God sent WOMEN to SPEAK on HIS BEHALF to PROCLAIM very important matters of direction, truth, & encouragement over a NATION, the children of Israel. God Bless the Women..

The Ancient Dance ~ the 1st Triple Threat

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON MY PREVIOUS SITE (DANCERFORADONAI.COM) on 6.3.16, Modified today:

I believe ancient dances to be more feminine, more flexible, & more spiritually connected than today’s modern dances.

Let me explain:

More Feminine..

All the modern dances created in the past 2000 years, have elements of masculinity and abnormal gravity defying movements, which is also a masculine trait. Women don’t naturally move in the ways of modern dance, which is why they must be trained in that particular dance.

adult-art-ballerina-ballet-209948

Hip Hop is aggressively masculine, Jazz is the birth of spunky, & Ballet uses a number of damaging alignments to the body in the appearance of gracefulness. They are all unique and have their place, but they are also a few illustrations of the non-natural femininity in dance.

light-woman-art-girl-40186

In ancient times, before and up to the arrival & death of Christ, the way women moved naturally were easily incorporated into their dances, which made learning & doing them easy & simple. Imitation was the teaching method with the way of observance, made the dances remain alive in the culture of those generations.

More Flexible..

It appear we have evidence that all ancient dance incorporated two or more of the following elements:

~the dance itself (lovely body movements)

~props (instruments or other)

~songs (sung by singers reflecting their current, but now historical, news)

woman-raising-her-hands-2506776

Today, many dancers solo dance to the music, in which is a great feat, BUT most ancient dancers sung  & played an instrument when they danced, creating rhythm with their movements. In addition, their dances were beautiful, use various levels of rhythmic space, and were often done in groups.

Remember when Miriam danced? She sung & played the tambourine simultaneously while leading others in the celebration. And what about the dancers who praised David & Saul? They chanted as they danced with tabrets &various instruments of music. These women recorded in our history books of Exodus (15:20-21) & I Samuel (18:6-7), were the first triple threats!!

woman-wearing-white-minidress-3568546

More Spiritually Connected..

Ancient dancers of all races, ethnicities, & nations danced. And when they danced it was often in connection of worship to their deity. For the Israelites, is was/and still is for the Most High God: I AM / the Lord Almighty, for the Greeks is was to act out legends for their gods, for the Canaanites it was to dance around their idols & different forces of nature, while the Baal priests wildly & violently danced around their erected alters.

All dancing was consciously connected to worship of a spirit. Although there is only One Spirit, which is the Most High & beside Him there is no other, these diverse people recognized dance as a sacred act of worship to a spirit that they felt were governing their lives. I do not advocate demonic dancing’ dancing to any god except Our Creator, Yahweh. I solely support honoring the dance to Him as the true Lord. Yet, I point out these other ancient dancers to reveal their awareness of the power in dance & their understanding that it should be offered up as a sweet sacrifice in worship to the Lord.

celebration-ceremony-costume-culture-1149632

We as a whole people do not have this vast awareness today. Yet the spirit realm has not lost its knowledge of its power. It perceives each dancer whether their dance belongs to the Holy One or given to the other one (the enemy), (see Acts 19:15), even though the average dancer is unaware of it. Many don’t realize they are dancing for some deity that influences their movement, whether it is for the Lord or some idol. If we restore this awareness, we can change our commitment to move for & only for God.

Will you return to the triple threat dancing for the Lord of this Dance? Or will you continue to allow our precious customs to lie dormant unknown in books, movies, and songs?

High Level Femininity, Patterned in Hebraic Temples

Tags

, , , , ,

I was meditating one evening, as often biblical characters have done before great significance occurs in their lives, & asked the Lord what He could show me regarding the Tabernacle of Moses and the Temples of Solomon, Zerubbabel, & Herod’s in regards to Femininity.

Did they really have anything to do with femininity at all?” I wondered. These great structures of Worship and Intercession, where functions and performance were dominated by the men set apart by God. Masculinity oozed from the Temples.

8A1AD033-9090-427A-800B-820617909BB8

Still, I secretly believed that femininity could be perceived in all the duties of the court. This unexplainable assurance was birthed in me months ago; I just didn’t have the evidence. Last week, I asked the Lord if my theory was true. And then, He opened my eyes:

Remember the book I wrote on the 3 Levels of Femininity? If you haven’t heard of it, I categorize all the nuances and characteristics of Femininity in three distinct levels.

He recently showed me how each level relates to a particular glory of the Temples and what they symbolize. Then he showed me how a woman desiring to attain the highest level can do so by going through a simulation of an actual Temple ritual. I detail and describe this exact course a woman needs to take, to become totally and completely surrendered to Christ in Femininity. I also share what each function and furnishing symbolizes to the feminine girl. Here’s a digital copy of it.

Below are the associations He gave me for each level of Femininity:

15BAA3C7-DB4D-43A0-9C8E-8A487A2B57F3

1. Level One Girliness – relates to Solomon’s Temple

The first Temple to be built was done so by a experienced youth that had a heart to fulfill his purpose as role as king and judge with wisdom. Immature yet glorious, the king Solomon built this structure that many were impressed with. The Girly stage of Femininity, is the also first stage and is immature in its nature of being innocent, naive, and inexperienced. It’s pure desire is only to exist to reflect its own glory of loveliness.

2. Level Two Sensuality – relates to Zerubbabel’s Temple

This is the Temple that Ezra and Nehemiah records being rebuilt (by Joshua, Zerubbabel, and prophets of God), after the captivity of Israel. They did their best to resurrect what they formally had, while returning the people to the worship of their God, but it did not match the previous Temple’s riches. This is the nature of Sensuality. It tries to create something, but is not as pure as the former or later layers of Femininity. It’s purpose is for gain, whether selfish or altruistic.

3. Level Three Spirituality – relates to Herod’s Temple

The non-covenant king, Herod wanted to expand on Zerubbabel’s Temple adding luxury, treasure, & opulence to it. It was revered before its destruction. Never again was a Temple of this particular structure and elements were built. This imitates the highest level of Femininity as it has been matured by the other two levels, taking lessons from them, yet now creating a pure form of Femininity. It is the final stage of Femininity. Full of wealth, riches, and treasures of grace, sweetness, and beauty, this level of Femininity is connected to God.

1D399790-DD20-4608-A86A-3AEEBA288A5B

The revelation the Lord shared with me waa just amazing! To know not only the Temples had an general association with Femininity; but to learn the rituals within the Temple could be applied to Femininity really astounded me! When I experienced it, it was life-changing. The kind where no other type of Femininity (goddess, sacred, divine, etc..) expressed by the world could offer. Feminine energy is all things things, but not The Thing. This is how we own our Femininity, experiencing one that is life altering for us – but who owns Femininity?

Are You a “Princess”?

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

And why I call myself the Feminine Princess. All those who associate and connect with this quest are also Feminine Princesses 🙂

pexels-photo-2921424

There’s four types of Princesses:

  1. the ‘Disney Princess’
  2. a Nickname someone gives you
  3. the self proclaimed Princesses (illustration: Youtube)
  4. and then there’s the Real Princess

How does one qualify for each?

 

pexels-photo-2062542

The ‘Disney Princess’ (about 14 total)

  • be Female
  • be Human (or humanish)
  • star in a Disney animated film
  • be an actual Princess (see real Princess below)
  • *note: almost all of them never perform a heroistic act

A Nickname

  • a Female likened to a princess, but is not an actual princess
  • can be used as a Compliment or an Insult
  • a Girl or Woman having the characteristics of one
  • or One called such for being a high ranking person in her sphere

The Self-proclaimed Princesses

  • Women and Girls whom label themselves as a Princess
  • a Gal usually living a lusher life than the average person
  • She commonly dresses like her ideal of princess’ garb, which could be based on Disney’s wardrobes or other garments generally accepted for a princess

Real Princess (either of these conditions)

  • a Woman, being the daughter of a King or granddaughter of a Sovereign, birthed into royalty
  • or a Woman whom marries a Prince
  • or a Female member of a royal family that does not reign
  • or a Woman whom has sovereign power and does a noble and great deed

Real Princess have extensive training and grooming to adjust them to their high level functionality and role in life. They are highly educated, know several languages, involved in multiple rare hobbies, learn proper etiquette, have great manners, understand various forms of address, always look impeccable, are good role models, support a cause or charity, know how to converse well in any situation, and are interested in arts & culture. Whew!

pexels-photo-2562497

Do you consider yourself a princess? if so, which one?

This is why I call myself a Feminine princess:

  1. as a Believer:
    • I belong to a Spiritual Royal Family (The Father has made his son King of Kings seen in Deuteronomy 10:17 & I Timothy 6:14-15 ) and heir to Abraham, one of the first richest men on this planet (see Genesis 13:2 & Romans 4:13)
  2. in Femininity:
    • I perfect and polish my art & science that I might become high ranking in this sphere
  3. as His Anointed Maid-Servant:
    • this is my assignment from God, and He Himself bestowed this title upon me, before I was yet one ( I Samuel 9:16, 10:1, 16:1,3, 12-13 & I Kings 19:16)

Are you a Feminine Princess too? Join us!

Why Mary was Chosen by God..

Tags

, , , , , ,

woman-wearing-black-off-shoulder-dress-3257052

Women are special. I mean really special.

We are the only gender and species on the planet that was made from ANOTHER LIVING BEING. Everything else was made and formed from elements that weren’t alive. Animals, Plants, Flowers, even Men were formed / created from all types natural substances. But women? We were formed from Man.

What does that have to do with Mary? I find it interesting that the LORD approached her, via an angel, with a proposition that was scientifically is the opposite direction of the initial creation flow.

The Angel says that the Lord’s Spirit will come upon her, a woman, to produce a Child, whom ‘shall be called the Son of God’ ~Luke 1:35. Consider that for a moment. Now God is using a Woman to make a Man, without any other man’s assistance. Man is now being created by a living thing.

dna-163466_640

Why did God chose a woman instead of just creating Jesus from the earth like He did Adam? I believe it’s because of our unique characteristics. We have more genes than men (1000 on each of our two X chromosomes, while men have 45 on their one Y chromosome). Yet I don’t think we were chosen for our genes alone, but also for our spirit. Since we have two X chromosomes, indicating our femaleness, womanhood, & femininity, I think we were chosen because we were the counterpart to God’s own Spirit.

Think about it. If His spirit wasn’t pure masculinity, then He would need to mix with maleness on the earth to be reproduced here. Being that He choose a feminine spirit, He is / was enough masculine to produce a baby.

This makes me feel….wonderful. Knowing that Mary, her spirit, her femininity, her chromosomes, rest in me. And it’s potent enough to get me noticed….by God. Women, feel that truth the next time you feel unworthy. God notices and loves you so much, He chose to have a Child with your gender ♡

Redefining Your Period or What to do When You’re Bleeding

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

I had a close friend of mine reference my special time of the month as ‘icky’. Fortunately for me, I don’t see nor experience it that way. I may be one in 3 billion women in this earth, ok 3.838 billion to be exact, at the moment I wrote this, covering 49.6% of the humans on the planet, but as a feminine woman, I don’t actually feel any negative emotions about my menstrual cycle at all. Some women get all worked up about the consequences of Eve’s actions, but no woman can say for certainty that she would not have done the same thing.

earth-11015_640

But that’s another post..

Anyway, back to the monthly cycle, period, or the ‘time of visitation‘ as we call it in my family. We’ve always warned each other that ‘our visitor is here‘ when referring to our periods.

tampon-495739_640

I may be one of the few that feel this way but I would also challenge you to reconsider your menstrual. Having your cycle is actually very symbolic. God always works good out of evil, doesn’t He? So it should no longer be looked at as a curse of Eve, but a blessing for women.

Your cycle is a period of rest, renewal, and release. Let me explain more…

women-936549_640

REST. what female doesn’t like another excuse to rest? Due to one fact: often, we do a lot. I mean a lot. I won’t exhaust you with a long list of just surface things we take care of. but if you’re a female, you know. And we usually put others before ourselves, which means we may not have scheduled time for ourselves. Our period gives us an immediate pass to relax and focus on ourselves, that we may be at our best for others and ourselves.

RENEWAL. a predetermined cycle that restarts every 30 or so days, neatly fitting into each month, gives us an opportunity to renewal ourselves. Just as the moon has a 30 day phase of fully appearing and disappearing symbolizing rebirth, the woman is comparable. You have your preference on how you want to spend your time being restored and revived, but as a feminine woman, I choose to transform to unchartered areas of my life towards feminine excellence.

RELEASE. as the blood flows from our inner most private and sacred part of our nature, it’s a signal to allow any part of ourselves that we no longer desire to keep, currently have no need of, or want to disassociate from, to go. We willing let it part from our souls, spirits, and bodies. We feel lighter. Only retaining what we desire, need, and want in our lives. This helps us grow and evolve, while experiencing a fuller life of our true selves.

Will you welcome your special time each month, as a designated divine time for your flourishing?

Here is a video of “8 Things to do When You’re on IT” and need relief & comfort. let me know your thoughts and what you do when you’re on your period.

Rather read the list? See below!

What do you do when you’re on your period?

 

8 Things to do when You’re on IT

1. Rub a blend of essential oils that targets female hormonal balance for women onto my belly.

2. Drink Raspberry Tea. It’s known for being good to induce or regulate your period.

3.  Watching an emotionally charged movie. This is excellent for releasing emotions that are usually generated during this time that may be felt deeply and intensely.  Recently, I watched a 1979 Aramaic film of Jesus and was crying when they took him!

4. Rest. Laying down in the bed under the comfort of warm and security is a great  rejuvenator during  this time.

5. Read or listen to a love story. What a great way to liberate your passions!

6. Journal.  It’s so much easier when your body slows you down for you to think about things you want to express on paper then when you’re in a flurry of things appear “normal”.

7. Search for pins for your Pinterest board.  It was amazing that I have never understood the hype around smoothie bowls! I know it’s been around for 10 years with the birthing out the Acai bowl, but I just preferred sipping my smoothies rather than eating them. But the last time I was on my period, I got a craving for a cool dessert with a snack twist to it. I looked on Pinterest and found smoothie bowls and fell in love. Nine years later I finally embraced the trend. But this is what my first one looked like on that day of my period:

8. Take a walk in nature. Just walking my dog or digging my feet in the wet sand, puts my spirit and soul in the perspective of a world outside of what’s happening within mine. Breathing fresh air re-grounds me to my connection on this earth, as opposed to being enclosed with the thousand rapid dynamic changes are occurring within my body and soul.

*disclaimer: I’m not prescribing treatment as a doctor would. I’m only sharing what I do on my period.
