Solomonic Decisions and the Sacred Feminine

Do you believe that diseases are a result of emotional imbalances? If so, read on…
I don’t normally write directly about my dreams on my blog, but I feel like these dreams are important.
I feel like they belong to the collective and not just to me so I thought I would share them.
To keep a long winded dream story short, I was told in a dream that Thyroid Disorders are a result of women not speaking up when their creative or private space is not being honored. We often don’t speak up because we feel guilty for ignoring the other person.
Whether that other person is a male or a female partner we don’t want to hurt their feelings so we say nothing, we hope they will get the message, but when they don’t we cave and give in. We dishonor ourselves.
There is something very sacred about this feminine space. Perhaps sacred enough to cause disease. (Thyroid Disorder is on the rise and seems to be more common in women than men.)
Today I came across this video. It is a short fourteen minute video about honoring the sacred feminine space and the masculine/feminine imbalance we are being faced with. Watch it when you get a chance.
I had another dream that clued me in to the pain I have been holding mainly in my left hip. I have been asking my dreams for help with this for a while now. In the dream there were two balanced discs held up by an axle in the middle. It was clear to me that it was a representation of the way our hips work.
I often have dreams that play out like stories. They don’t always feel like they are my dreams and this was on of them. Maybe I was pulling it from that collective feminine pool.
In this dream their was a lady who lived in a small apartment with her children. The apartment was broken into by three men. Two of the men left and one stayed behind to assault the lady. He threatened to kill or hurt the children if she did not go along with what he wanted. So instead of screaming she played friendly with him and went along with his sexual requests in order to protect her children. She did not want her children harmed so she diffused the situation by pretending to like the man. In the dream the man came back over and over again and she again pretended in order to protect her children.
We may not do this on such extreme levels in our lives, but have you ever been in a situation where you went along with the requests of others to keep the situation under control or even to protect others?
If you were in this situation what would you do? Write your own ending to this dream.
If this lady lived in another country she might eventually be deemed a whore and killed. Her children would grow up believing the stories. They would grow up with little respect for a woman who simply did what she had to do to protect her den. Would it have been better for her to go down kicking and screaming and risk the safety of her children? Where is the balance?
In the visual of the discs and axle I could feel the energy of protecting the children lived in my right hip (on the right side of the axle) and the energy of protecting the self lived in my left hip (the left axle). To make the dream even more surreal, as I was waking I could feel a tingling in my right hip as if it had been asleep. It felt as though forgiveness has been found allowing me the conviction to now honor my own space. Something had been cleared.
In our dreams (as well as our lives) we can be all people. I was playing the part of the children, witnessing in order to grant forgiveness to the mother. I was the mother finally able to speak that I was simply offering protection at the expense of my self. I was the man who brought the difficult lesson to this woman allowing her to finally heal.
She made A Solomonic Decision, but one that is still alive in society today manifesting as an imbalance.
I respect any woman who can move and work from her hips. Any woman who has found that balance. Any woman who speaks up when her space is not being honored. And most of all any man who understands the sanctity of that space.
I would love to get your feedback on this. Have you ever caved to the needs of another because you felt like you owed them something? Maybe you felt like you owed them your time and affection at the expense of your own?
Have you ever felt like you dishonored yourself in order to protect others? Kept your mouth shut to diffuse a situation?
These are not just issues of the feminine. They belong to the feminine/masculine imbalance we are experiencing today.
Leave me a comment below. I would love to get some conversations started on how to deal with these situations when they arise. Conversations centered around solutions.
How do we ask for that space to be honored?
If you are a mother what would you have done in the situation of the dream?
