The Divine Masculine is the power within you to be a source of loving provision and protection for yourself and for those in our care. The Divine Masculine is part of your original nature as one who haa been created in the image of the Divine. While some have been conditioned to think of the masculine as strictly related to male, the Divine Masculine is inherent within all of us regardless of our gender identification. When the Divine Masculine is fully embodied, you are able to harness the energies within you related to action, provision, protection, setting boundaries, getting needs met, and building (to name a few). Under the reign of the Divine Masculine, absent societies conditioning of fear, power and control, you move toward your original state which is peace, contentment and joy where you find yourself living in harmony with others in beloved partnership and cooperative engagement.
In this course we turn to the Western model of the Divine Masculine as it was lived out through Jesus of Nazareth who became Christ. Piercing through the religious dogma and doctrine that has imprisoned Jesus’ message of love, partnership and equality, we find the original Jesus – a human being who came to know and understand his true Divine nature, thus embodying his full divinity. In doing so, he became both fully Divine and fully human, the ultimate intention of the human experience. To use the language of modern psychology, Jesus became self-actualized – knowing who he was, what his gifts were, and how he was called to share these gifts. He was able to live for the sake of his own fulfillment and in service to the betterment of the world. Jesus then sought to guide his disciples in doing the same.
Our goal then is to follow the example set forth by Jesus- to create an opportunity to welcome the Divine Masculine within and to embody it fully in your live. In this, you will realize your full Divine nature as present within your human form and where you will find fulfillment, contentment and peace. Through this you are then able to be “the change you want to see in the world.”
Scripture Disclaimer: You will notice that scripture plays a predominant role in my writing and in most of my local and online courses. Please note that my approach to scripture is unlike any you have likely experienced before! I do not approach scripture from a dogmatic or doctrinal perspective. Neither do I use it as a way to instill fear or manipulate specific actions or behaviors. Instead, I approach scripture as the ancients did – as a collection of stories which have the opportunity to reflect back to us aspects of ourselves. In this way, scripture becomes a vehicle through which our highest self can speak to us – providing guidance, support, inspiration, nourishment and even healing. When we pierce through the veil of other people’s interpretations and allow the Divine to speak to us personally and directly through these ancient texts, we discover the transformational power of The Word as it was originally intended – as a tool to guide and sustain us on the path of love.
