Divine Work

Hey Sistahs!
I feel lately like I am the mother of a new baby - in that space where she is trying to keep a balance between her other children and this new baby that needs a lot of her attention in the beginning. Well, I don't have a baby but a new project - a new mission called Wombyn Studies. She is sooo beautiful and powerful - and she has me fascinated. The Goddess Mother truly gifted me with a service to her - a portal that uplifts her name and all Sistahs. I am proud to say that over 100 Wombyn have joined the site and it continues to grow.

Last week, I was up in the Redwoods and sitting in nature I realized that service is a necessary part in the cycle of manifestation. Often we are praying, doing ceremony for what we desire and the thought does not enter on how to give back. The Mama is sending us strong messages that she can no longer be abused - her waters disrespected, her land littered, her skies polluted and her children subjugated...To solve the problems of today and heal the wounds of today you have to step out of the 'man-made' mind - the mind that says you rule over the womb - man or woman, these thought patterns have come close to destroying the very entity that keeps us alive.
Kola Boof said, "No one respects a person that would kill their own Mother." It is true...I don't think you can respect yourself if you do nothing to save the Divine Feminine.

Lately, I have been researching for the Wombyn Studies site and I enjoy the opportunity to focus on reading again. There is such good information out there - people doing the work to help us all re-remember and there is also those who still seek to confuse the issues and focus on hate. I decided this year that I was going to focus on those things that empower me most - the work of the Mother.

If you have not joined Wombyn Studies and you are a Wombyn (Woman) then join us! It is the first collaborative, cooperative, online university for Wombyn dedicated to the self-study, research and upliftment of the Divine Feminine. It is a site made for and by Wombyn. We are unveiling a research center soon and more great opportunities to share and collaborate.

Peace and Hugs,
Sis. Camara

Controlling Your Own Destiny...

Sistahs, for a woman it is important to fine tune your hearing to your intuition - the small voice inside. There are many people who are gifted with all types of insight however they are not ever really equipped to give you 100 percent accuracy because you are the direct link to your destiny. If you are told that outcome A, B and C will happen in your life and you disdain the thought of outcome C then you change it - immediately!

I am convinced that the human soul lives on several different energy planes at one time. We have many realities taking place at one time - a waking life (fire), a walking life (earth), a flying life (air) and a swimming life (water). In every element our lives are seeking to balance - coming together in just the right way so we can be at peace. When an element becomes too dominant then our lives out picture in a particular way...too much air and we are not grounded; too much water and we can feel depressed/moody; too much fire and we are angry/impatient; and too much earth we are too rigid/uncompromising...

If we look to nature then we see how the delicate balance works AND we also see when it does not work. Humans interfere a lot with nature because they too are a part of it. The biggest environmental problem the earth faces is the disconnection that humans have with the rest of nature - people do not think of themselves as just another element on the earth...Two weeks ago I kept getting this Shrine message..."when they first came upon you they did not see any difference between you and nature - you were that close to nature that you resembled spoke the language of the animals - you spoke with were that close - this is why...because you were nature..." I knew the Shrine was speaking about the historical past - and now...indigenous people treated just like the earth - something to use - very little respect, very little reciprocity...

It kept coming in my mind, this Shrine message because it was linking together all of what I knew from the past and was answering the question - "how did we get here?" If we come from greatness, how did we get here? Separation of self from nature. Our nature includes our sacred sexual force - the energy that connects us to the Great Mother. So, we have to come back to all those places that we have been told are primitive, dirty and unholy...

In a prayer say...

I trust the Creator, Mother,Father, Goddess, God
I honor and respect all creations of this Divine Spirit
I know that I am made by the Creator
My knowledge of self affirms my Divinity because I was created by
the Creator/Mother/Father/Goddess/God
I am no mistake
Nothing created by the Creator upon my body is a sin
I am not a sin
My true nature is holy
of all earthly riches and heavenly blessings
I commit to living the life the Creator gave me
I am at peace, I feel love, I feel calm
as the the realization of Spirit washes over me.
Ashe', AWombyn, Amen, And So It Is!

Sistahs,true awareness brings balance. After a while destiny is simply what you desire.

I am grateful.

Peace and Hugs,
Sis. Camara

Something Magical...

Do you ever in the middle of it all - the mundane everyday stuff get a spark? Your walking down the street and the way the sun peeks through the shadows makes you look up and suddenly you are aware of the sky AND from the sky you think "how beautiful" as if it was the first time you have seen something so phenomenal AND you FEEL the miracle of your life. You witness you are a being among millions AND you ARE unique - no one in the world has the same set of fingerprints you have, no one in the world has a mole in the shape of heart resting in the center of their palm. You say, "I AM" and suddenly all those worries that you had about something someone said earlier seem trivial. Instantly, you are grateful for this one moment because you SEE you truly SEE...Re-Remember, Re-Remember, Re-Remember...

A Time To Move Forward

Sistahs, I decided recently to work with the idea of stretching beyond what I have conceptualized for my life at the present moment. Yes, I am happy however, I know this is not my resting place - this is not the place where I prop up my feet and say my work is done. I was thinking the other day that I want to move forward into uncharted territory as a Wombyn of Afrikan descent. I no longer wish to collude with the small boxes that have been conveniently made for me - for I am a Goddess - a SistahGoddess and it is with great pride and honor that I continue to work.

I find lately with the creation of Wombyn Studies that people are curious as to why I do the work I do - they may not see the worth of Wombyn's work. Some people are even scared to participate because of the "because"...The other day a Brotha wrote me and thanked me for the work on this blog and said that he has pass this blog on to the Wombyn in his life. I thought this was really the first time a Brotha has verbalized this to me. It meant a lot because he understood where my energy comes from...It is not to separate but to bring together. As long as Wombyn are afraid or tentative about their true Creator Given Power then communities remain torn and we are on a treadmill going nowhere. All Wombyn (not just a token few) have the ability to provide insights, intuition, knowledge and wisdom. I will continue my work until all Wombyn NATURALLY, organically feel that it is ok to be interested in themselves and to think HIGHLY of themselves.

In reference to the picture above:
I was commenting on bread a few week ago and wanted to know who invented it. Max Dashu who is a BRILLIANT Wombyn's Historian commented that it was Wombyn. She went on to say (paraphrase) that Wombyn where known to be early expert scientists because of the use of yeast as a leavening agent. Wombyn also invented canning, pickling and fermented foods and beverages such as beer. Other books I am reading lately speak of Wombyn being experts at growing crops through the use of their menstrual cycles/blood -when Wombyn were free to use the information of their bodies towards food science their communities never starved. (Her Blood Is Gold by Laura Owen).

I give thanks.

Peace and Hugs,
Sis. Camara
