We all have a divine masculine and feminine aspect of self. We carry the capacity for these qualities to exist in sacred union within our core. Like an inner marriage, or a spiral of light the two qualities of our being combine to create a central power source that feeds and fuels our life experience, past lives and future incarnations.
This aspect of being on the internal level, the etheric union of self, is mirrored and explored through the relationships that we encounter on the physical plane. Seeking to find a balanced level of divine masculine or feminine self, we will often attract partners, relationships and connections that offer learning and growth. Our highest level of being, our Soul, seeks to filter our natural divine light into our consciousness in a number of ways. Sometimes our relationship experiences seek to spark our protective, self sustaining, fierce or courageous qualities. Other times we are sent opportunities to explore vulnerabilities, softness, gentleness or humour.
We each have an infinite number of qualities, gifts and experiences we are able to attract during the course of several lifetimes. With the gift of clairvoyance, when working alongside others, and exploring my own previous lives, I often see the ways we are each pass alongside previous soul encounters, past life loves, in our current lifetime. The chords of light that connect us to one another and through time and space, carry the resonance and echoes from past lifetimes. How we approach the interactions in our current lifetimes, will renegotiate the energy exchange both in the present and into future encounters, should we incarnate alongside once more. As a teen/young adult I felt bombarded by past life connections. People who I had died alongside, loved or felt hurt by, appearing in this present life with no ‘memory’ of me. Those learning opportunities, many painful, eventually helped me to clearly create boundaries of what I sought to learn as an adult. Many people experience intense connections throughout the course of their present lives, that are deeply impacted by the past life resonance the two individuals share.
With devotion to self awareness, we are offered ample chances to notice the way the divine masculine self, or feminine aspects of being were encouraged, distracted, or depleted through particular combinations. In adult relationships, many people seek to find their soulmate to experience divine and sacred union. Yet it is in connecting and fostering a union of self, that the wholeness of being, that some attribute to an outside source, is truly celebrated. Once this inner marriage occurs, the Soulmate that help to amplify the inner union of self, is more easily attracted into tones energy field.
Through a union of self, the tone of all other relationships will shift. Through discovering the unique qualities of being that are ones own strengths and nurturing qualities, we are each able to identify the ways other people can encourage, support and be celebrated in their own ways for meaningful and lasting relationships. Marriages of all kinds take constant determination by both parties to be growing, recommitting, and honestly exploring the ways the inner marriage of self, the core power source is radiant or feeling depleted of light. A person may have a fierce inner warrior masculine energy that attracts several partners who seek to explore their own warrior self, yet in all honesty, when finding the mate that is most likely to amplify the balanced self, the person may choose someone with a gentle and healing divine masculine attribute. Together the two energies create a balance of light exchange in union, and with the world at large. In another circumstance, the divine feminine aspect of being may have a powerful knowledge or energy for rebirth, death and regeneration, and attract fiery qualities in relationship that help to feed this intense emotional level of being. Yet in balanced partnership the partner who is most suited to amplifying those gifts may carry a grounded divine feminine light who has gifts for patience instead of fire.
Partners, romantic relationships, and marriages all amplify qualities within the two parties in some way. We may choose on a soul level to wade through the intensity of feeling that comes from exploring imbalance for several years, or lifetimes. Yet we always have the power to choose to devote honest exploration of soul path as individuals and to encourage growth and soul development in the beloved. To honour our need for years or lifetimes alone, or those times in which partnership is most aligned with our being. Some relationships last an eternity, through several lifetimes. The resonance of love and union resurfacing to offer gifts through a casual encounter in one life or a union of decades in another. Yet, through each interaction we can ask ourselves courageously, does being with this person bring forth the gifts I have to share with this planet? In a way that provides space and energy for my partner to also amplify their gifts?
The following are two prayers I often use in committed relationship, in the eternal endeavour to balance a unified self and in honouring my beloved husband:
For union of Divine masculine and feminine qualities in the self:
“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please send your angels to assist me in uncovering the aspects of self that are in need of the most Love and attention for empowered balance. Please help me to clearly identify the gifts I carry as an individual in a unification of Divine masculine and feminine qualities, to share with this beautiful world. I ask for the assistance of the Archangel Micheal, to cut through chords of fear, as I explore the ways I empower or disempower myself with current life choices. Thank you for the sending the gentle energy of the Divine Feminine in the aspect of Parvati to help me assimilate the ways I am able to nourish and sustain myself through healing, strengthening, self compassion or transformation. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”
For renegotiating energy exchange with the beloved:
“Dear Divine Source, God/dess of Creation, please help a balanced energy of Love and well being on all levels, flow between myself and my partner. Please send the Archangels most attuned to our soul paths at this time, to assist us as individuals in union as we seek to better support one another with the highest vibrations of Love. May we each have the courage, the grace and the compassion to bring out the divine light we foster, for the good of our marriage, our community and the world at large. Thank you, Amen, OM and Aho.”
The power of words when prayed, affirmed or spoken aloud, carry the resonance of our intent. If it is with a faith and pure intention that we seek to know ourselves as individuals and to honour the individual journey of our partners, we are better equipped to identify what needs to shift in relationship, either with ourselves or one another to bring about a more balanced flow of energy on the physical, emotional, mental or spiritual plane. If one quality of being or one person in relationship is always the dominant energy, the imbalance will amplify energy that is perhaps not for the highest good of any. It is a constant renegotiation of ones light, core seIf, soul purpose and feelings of deservedness for joy, that we each must navigate. Yet we are all multidimensional beings, capable of balance, of investment and diversity of energy. We can be honest about where our focus must be for partnership balance and health. We are all capable of amplifying our own and one anthers light. May we each choose to find balance within ourselves, and to help create balance in the world at large through relationship.
