(Lilith part IV By Elohim Yael)
The tale of Abraham, Hagar, Sarah brings us straight to the heart of the inner feminine struggle – as explained in the former article ‘the heart of the Feminine struggle’. Their figures tell us about sacrificing, victimizing and being offended and show us a pattern of protection at the same time. When facing the underlying behavior and emotions of this pattern and when reconnecting with these, we can make peace with the inner feminine struggle. Only then we become aware of these wounded parts, bring them back into our conscious and start healing them. This will bring back ownership of the feminine and empower the feminine, inside and collectively.
The pattern of protection
The article on the heart of the feminine struggle captures how Hagar and Sarah struggle with their position of wife and mother. It also clarifies how in her struggle with the masculine oriented system Lilith felt restricted in her freedom and chose to escape this reality, and as a consequence limits her connection with the masculine and other part of the feminine (as the feminine has two parts). The choices and behavior of both Lilith, Sarah and Hagar show how somehow they felt the only way out of the wrong done, was to set conditions. They believed these to be necessary to secure their position and their experience of freedom.
Unable to recognize that despite a different position or experience they could still be who they in essence were, they stepped out of the wholeness of the feminine. They furthermore did not realize it was themselves, the feminine, that brought a condition to the table in being together with the masculine. In a way their choices reflect fear to be left alone or fear of losing their position and essence. This indicates somehow they did not trust there was enough room or love to still feel safe and it reveals a lack of confidence in both themselves and the masculine. The inability to see this drama and step out of it, caused both parts of the feminine to stay in the comfort zone of being victimized.
Coming clean with it
As time passed and the masculine predominating the (social) system and structures, it became harder and harder to see what truly caused the appeared distance. In the current times of bringing back clarity and transparency by throwing light on deeper layers we are now in the position to set things straight again and take back ownership of the feminine where it was lost. For this we have to take responsibility for all aspects that are part of the feminine, the good, the lesser and the sorrow. We have to see through all that happened, face this - deep inner Shadow - and come clean with it.
Exposing the pattern of protection against the wrong done, the tale of Hagar and Sarah also enables us to see the underlying emotions and other layers of this pattern and reconnect with these. And Hagar and Sarah symbolizing the digesting of the effects of the turn the feminine brought upon herself, invite us to face this deeper layer within our inner feminine. This layer reflects anger and sorrow and involves Self-condemnation about her own responsibility for the removal with both the masculine and herself. By acknowledging and allowing these deeper emotions back in ourselves our inner feminine can be healed, also collectively.
When the feminine (part in us) is truly able to face her Shadow and reconnect with all its deeper emotions, this will reveal the true and Sacred Wisdom of Creation. Which will be explained in the final article 'The Divine Feminine and the return of Sacred Wisdom of Creation'.
