Awakening to the Goddess

By Arielle Giordano

How to dance in your heart and inspire the world!

Your inner goddess, which I call the real and deeper womaness, lives in your heart and is your deeper beingness. The opening of your heart and the surface levels of your being are feminine, while the deeper levels are masculine and must move through the feminine to express. In other words, the meaning of the masculine is the feminine within the masculine.

When you rest in your heart and relax your body, your heart becomes quiet in the first movement of being, which is feminine. A woman’s mystery is her essence of being moving in her humanness, and this mystery has the qualities of openness, softness, surrender, innocence and vulnerability.

The identity of a woman does not come from her female body, but from the earning of real womanness—the awareness within her being. Her being resonates with nature, and, when you are connected in nature, nature knows what you really are and then reflects it back to you.  

Your feminine power surrenders to knowing the truth in your heart, which is the release of masculinity. When you are surrendering and relating from an open and soft heart, you will use your mind, emotions and will in a new way.

By shifting out of the “self”, you let go of the base of yourself as you know it. You—as awareness—are now on a deeper level and able to integrate the principles of being within the feminine aspect to become an integrated woman. The real woman that you have now become embraces the qualities of love, kindness, gentleness, surrender and loveliness.

“Surrendering to the feminine power means really listening. You are listening with an open heart for the truth. If you like listening, that is feminine and does not disempower you. Real listening means you are open and available to know the truth of what you hear. Real listening does not mean that you believe what you are listening to. It means that you are present to the truth in what someone else is saying to you”—John De Ruiter
