Dear sisters, I would like to share with you a special invitation. As we look around, we can see that the heat is on…in our climate, in our politics, and in the way we relate with each other. Yet this same fire is also within all of us. Imagine what we can change in our world when we remember and accept the power that the element of Fire gifts us, and we redirect this power to heal, ignite, and enlighten our world with our love, passion, and compassion.
Fire is gifted to us as a creative power for our evolutionary unfolding. Fire gives us warmth, vision, and helps us to purify, transmute, and rise up in consciousness. That is why in many of our indigenous wisdom traditions, the element of Fire is also called the Sacred Flame of Life and Love.
If we had fully understood this, and had worked respectfully with the power that the element of Fire gifts us, our world would be very different right now. Instead, we externalized these powers through our technologies.
As women, being so close to the creative Source, we have a special responsibility for how we hold, embody, and share this Sacred Fire. It is time that we lovingly take our responsibility for our relationship with the element of Fire and how this manifests in our relationships with each other. And as mothers we also have a responsibility to teach our children about the purpose of this Fire in them.
The heat is on. Let’s work with this to ignite our Vision, passion and Love to bring forth a new civilization that is born through partnership, in all dimensions. This partnership also includes our brothers. Let us honor also their role and purpose. This same feminine wisdom lives in them as well. As a woman and a mother this is my commitment and my gift to my children and our world. The Future Generations are always within me, in my heart and in all that I do.
Will you join us on this Quest to actualize our feminine wisdom powers as Custodians for the Sacred Flame? The WOMENwise Quest is about this journey! To learn how you can join, click here.
I was born and raised in the Netherlands. Ever since I was a little girl, I was closely attuned to the spiritual dimensions of Life with a great interest in Alchemy and the exploration of higher consciousness dimensions. At the age of 22, I moved to South Africa to study the new democracy making in South Africa, as part of my Masters Degree in International Law and Political Science. During my time in South Africa, my intuitive powers activated fully through a series of unusual events that almost costed my life. My spiritual powers accelerated quickly yet I had no context or personal wisdom support for how to move through this, other than my direct access to the cosmic dimensions that had always been open for me.
I went to Australia where I connected with teachers from various wisdom traditions, including the Australian Aborigines, to find support for the Quest that had activated within me. Several teachers came on my path who initiated me into the Buddhist Heart Sutra & Dzogchen teachings, Kriya Yoga, the Usui & Karuna Reiki Master Teacher Training, homeopathy, herbalism, vibrational medicines, shamanic visioning and healing, and Australian Aboriginal womanhood initiations. By exploring these teachings I started to better understand my own spiritual powers, and learned how to balance myself through these profound activation times. I also realized, however, that these teachings were not able to guide me to where I needed to go myself.
There was a deeper Call within me, that led me back to ancient primordial codes and memories that seemed to have been forgotten in our worlds today. Before I was able to share this with others I needed time to be present to my own awakening from these primordial dimensions that precede this world and Universe. Through a process of 7 years of inner reflection, purification, meditation, healing, and spending solitary time in Nature, I started to understand and embrace my calling into WOMENwise Custodianship. In 2006, I moved from Australia to Mauritius and in 2008 gave birth to my first son, followed by my second son in 2010. This activated my inner Priestess, and I was called back to explore my ancestral roots and spiritual heritage in Europe. I was then initiated into High Priestesshood through an ancient initiation rite, which opened me fully to my Cosmic Womanhood and our Cosmic Mother. During that same period, I founded EARTHwise Centre to provide the systemic evolutionary support for planetary wisdom-based governance and conscious leadership for our collective thrivability & flourishing, in community with others.
Over a process of several years, while also writing Love Letters from Mother Earth, I was then shown how to bring back these ancient initiation rites for our Planetary and Cosmic Womanhood. As an indigenous woman of Europe, I am also part of the European Circle of Indigenous Women, supported by Chief Phil Lane, the Four Worlds International Institue, and Four Worlds Europe.
