The chalice


A woman who is maternal, nurturing, or creative in these ways does not live in her head. There is an innate feminine quality to what she does and how she does what she does, or knows what she knows.

Just as a woman may surrender her body to be a vessel in pregnancy, in some similar invisible way mediumistic women can become the chalice through which consciousness may emerge. The sibyls, Delphic Oracles, and Native American women who had dreams of the tribe functioned in this way. These psychic women commonly had to lose consciousness for the dream of information to come through them […]. 

Both experiences change when consciousness is not surrendered, and a woman is aware of the awesomeness and privilege of what she does. 

She is now a chosen vessel and she herself has made the choice of what she is doing with her body or psyche. She taps into archetypal depths or biological depths that mysteriously come together in soul experiences and is conscious of being this chalice through which life or vision emerges. 

At this particular time, many women are birthing Goddess consciousness.
