There is an awakening happening and it is gathering pace and momentum as the Divine Feminine shows herself more and more. It has been building up for many years and is a transition that has long since been predicted.
Unfortunately, when huge changes remain only in "alternative" circles they don't snowball enough and don't reach the tipping point of the penny drop. Which is why sometimes things go mainstream.
The mainstream "face" of a movement is never the whole picture, just like the most wonderful of houses have quite humble looking front doors. As with a door, it is just a "way in", a "threshold", so that you take hold of where this movement is taking you.
50 Shades of Grey is a trilogy of books that I inhaled in a week on my Kindle, years ago. I think I read them February time 2012. What's interesting is some people say that the books weren't sexy enough, yet others say they only read books 1 and 2 as the third one wasn't. The third one was the marriage. Which showed the wholeness that a divine union can bring, so I think they are books that should be read in their entirety or not at all if they're not your bag.
But to dismiss the books is to miss a trick. Do you know how many hundreds of thousands of women went on to read other books in that niche, as a result of that mainstream introduction? I even know someone who WROTE an erotica book as a result of reading the trilogy. Female sexual expression has been suppressed for thousands of years. For a controlling reason. This current awakening is one that is necessary. If we are to reach the stage of enlightenment and elevation that we need to as a planet and race.
There are women who have been part of this divine feminine movement, who luckily for me, I have personally met, as I used to be an active Kundalini Yoga Teacher, as are both of them.
Anaiya Sophia has written Sacred Sexual Union. She sent it to me a year ago, but I have only read it in recent weeks. It explains so much. It also explains the source and origins of the current sexual dysfunction we see all around us. That took place in Atlantis. Divine sacred sexual union can be like a prayer, that elevates the couple and all around them. This ability has been suppressed but it is making a comeback. It begins with women, remembering who they are, becoming whole, and getting in touch with the divine feminine within them.
If you don't yet want to buy the book, you can watch some of her You Tube videos.
I know some of my readers will be more interested in the real life aspects of this, rather than the more esoteric elements. If you like regular people who call a spade a spade, then let me introduce you to Guru Kaur who is the second person I mentioned. She started the website Be The Woman You Were Born to Be. I have purposefully linked to the part of her website that has a podcast on it, because it is FREE and a really really good listen. Too many marriages break up because the woman is looking for the man to change. In that podcast, you can hear of changes that you yourself can make, that transform the situation you are in. Simply, because, the energy in the home is like a bowl, like a cradle, and it is us as women who hold, nurture and define that space. We set the "tone". So the changes we want to see, have to begin with us. Yes, it takes energy and guts and resolve. But we are the gender who can MAKE a baby. We CAN do this!
Just look at Elsa, with all of this in mind. Look at her clothes and posture at the beginning of the below video, and compare her to the end. Watch, sing along and LET IT GO!
Let's get back to 50 Shades. People's biggest criticism is that she was "controlled" but think of it a different way. She controlled him, by putting him firmly under her spell. She quite literally captivated him, and just like in Frozen, magic is banned! So Ana is controlled by Christian and Elsa is controlled in Frozen. Just like in Frozen, the transformation that Ana goes through via Christian means: "that perfect girl is gone" (a line from Let it Go).
Being subservient and perfect stops us from expressing who we are. Unleash the magic, and see what is inside ready to be tapped into. Your creative potential? Your inner magic? Your inner divine? Perhaps even your inner Goddess.
Speaking of Goddess, number 13 is a feminine Goddess number and a patriarchal society has us convinced it is unlucky. Yet another way of controlling the magic. Get in touch with "13". Today is the day to do it. It's Friday too! Double trouble supposedly. And no coincidence the movie is released today. Big things happen always on energetically charged dates! After all, it could have been released on Valentine's Day, but no!

- This is the post that inspired me to write the blog post you are reading now. A post by Mummy Barrow who hasn't read the books, but has written them off, and the movie, and the bandwagon: 50 Shades of Meh
- If you have time on your hands and want to have a long and considered read, that covers so many elements of this book and the years since and before, then read: Consent Isn't Enough: The Troubling Sex of Fifty Shades.

This is THE YEAR to celebrate our inner and outer power as women, whether we jiggle or not. Personally, I do
