Lilith part II By Elohim Yael
Lilith representing everything the ‘role of mother and wife’ does not, fell into Shadow within the feminine as a result of a sense of obligation towards the masculine. Thus we saw in the first clarification ‘Lilith, shadowing the feminine dilemma’. However she entails another Shadow part for humanity as well. She stands as metaphor for the inner constraint of freedom in general which was the result of the patriarchal system and its masculine focus on the form and its tangibility. Her deeper meaning makes us aware of a deeper layer for experiencing more (inner) freedom.
During the rise of the patriarchal traditions one part of the feminine chose to support the masculine approach and its designing style of creation out of a sense of obligation, and while doing so she retreated. The other part, that Lilith represents, felt restrained in her freedom and felt forced into escaping reality. Leading to her wandering. Deep down inside this created a struggle within the feminine, as the first clarification explained.
The masculine focus on form and its tangibility led to something else as well. The own-form, the own race or color and the individual identification were put above the others. The outer perception – the outside – was disconnected from the inner perception – the inside. All perceived to be tangible and visible oppressed the non-tangible or non-visible towards the background into the Shadow. It ‘disappeared’ and was forgotten. One wasn’t conscious of it anymore, leading into inner wandering.
Throwing light onto Shadow
Fallen into Shadow Lilith and her qualities ‘disappeared’, literally and figuratively being covered up by both the feminine and the masculine. This suppression enlarged the dark side of Lilith’s fire such as her anger and eagerness for wanting to be free from ties (independence). Reconciliation between both parts of the feminine and with the masculine is initiated by bringing Lilith’s qualities out of the Shadow, throwing light onto them and reconnecting them.
Only through awareness we bring these wounded parts back into our conscious and start the process of healing.
However Lilith represents more Shadow. As her wandering can be compared with the ‘inner wandering' humanity went through in general during the earthly experience of duality and disharmony, the period following paradise. Becoming aware (again) of one’s inner Shadow parts is an important key for freeing ourselves from restrictions within that reinforce the experience of duality.
Making Lilith visible again
One can achieve this by accepting all inner Shadow – both aspects within oneself, the sunny or fun sides, the dark or lesser sides and conscious and unconscious parts – ànd by taking responsibility for these aspects. However this inner shadow does not need to be tamed. Its needs recognition, embracement and rocking; it IS to BE (present). This process will make us aware of a deeper layer of inner freedom. Lilith’s deeper meaning contributes to this in general.
Lilith therefore represents an important aspect of realization and contemplation
in renewed inner experience of oneness and wholeness.
In other words one could say that her return is vital for the ‘Return of Paradise on Earth’. Lilith is liberated in oneself, ànd collectively, by giving her a voice and making her visible. Her voice brings the soft cradling of feminine empowerment. This will be explained in the coming three clarifications on Lilith and the important role she has in re-harmonizing the masculine and feminine. Those feeling connected to Lilith and her energy feed this process additionally and have a pioneering role.
