the Sacred Masculine with Divine
I've been noticing a craving for deep stillness coming from
within my body. It arises from my low body and inhabits my
heart. In my mind, I see an image of me being absolutely
still. I move into a state that I experience as being near
to not even breathing. The stillness and silence are
profound in this state. The process of breathing moves past
quieting the mind . The body, mind and heart are so silent
that the mere act of breathing feels loud.
This is the state that my body goes to when I must listen
deeply. This is not my only listening mode, but here is
where I find change. The kind of change that simply happens,
and you don't realize it happened until months later.
Anchoring ourselves into our bodies allows our souls fly
more freely out during mediations, sleep or healings. Funny
isn't it, that by going down we are more able to go up and
out? By anchoring more deeply into what is, we can
I have posted a sound healing that I sang in this state of
deep stillness online.

The chant invokes the Divine Feminine qualities of Mary,
held within the Earth herself,. One might say that these
qualities then arise up into the room and the awareness of
those who listen to the chant. I believe that rather than
rising up, the chant welcomes your body and awareness to
stillness, so that you feel the connections your body, male
or female, already has within itself to Mary's energy within
the Earth. It is only when your body becomes quiet, that you
become aware of the connections that already, and have
always existed, between you, the Earth, and the Divine

Starting about July 23-24 our solar system begins its annual
alignment with the Sirius system. These two powerful stars
and their related celestial orbs flood our system with
Sacred Masculine energy. This energy fills the Divine
Feminine container that all humans are building together.
This energy also fills each of our own personal chalices,
giving us the 'doing' and 'achieving' strength in proportion
to out ability to master the Divine Masculine energies and
hold them safely within our personal Divine Feminine
chalice. To be clear, both men and women have this challenge
handed to them. Each of us experiences the flowing (and
possibly overflowing) of this energy into our lives each
year at this time.
The alignment with the Sirius system begins about July
23-24, and lasts until mid-September. What I notice each
year is an upshot of 'doing' and 'achieving' towards the end
of this time period. Oftentimes by September there is a
sense of going so fast that life becomes a whirlwind.
People's schedules become so full that they don't take care
of themselves. This is the effect of the 'overflowing' of
the Sacred Masculine energies.
When these same Sacred energies are held within our personal
and communal chalice of Divine Feminine, wonderful
accomplishments and physical forms result. If you want to
see this for yourself, look at some online timelines that
give the month, day and year of historical events. There is
an interesting surge in early and mid-September of a certain
type of event. The founding of organizations, particularly
those that uplift or honor humanity, as well as significant
births and deaths and historical events excelerate into
September. I feel that humans working with spirit use this
Sacred Masculine energy to bring new sacredness into the
Let me bring this into practical application for this year.
We in the USA are asking ourselves "What is masculine?" Many
have considered and found some aspects of the Divine
Feminine. But we (the USA) have not re-considered what
Sacred Masculine looks like, and if it is different from the
profane or day-to-day masculine.
From my travels outside of the USA, I know many people are
watching the USA elections. This topic seems so far from the
idea of deep stillness that I began this article with, and
yet here is the parallel.
When I feel undermined, unsteady and unsure, my mind is the
great decider. My heart and emotions tend to be all over the
place, and so noisy that I shut them out. My body may be
speaking to my mind, and my guides may be speaking to me,
but I perceive only chaos outside of my mind. In these
moments I can bear to hear just my mind. I can not listen to
the chaos. And my mind 'sees' in straight lines. It likes
simple, clean and clear actions. And because of the chaos in
my heart and body, I long for a fast, direct solution to
releasing the chaos.
This state of being in our minds is where, I believe, most
Americans live. The experience of deep stillness, of being
so at ease and at rest that the action of breathing feels
disruptive is rarely or never experienced. The unresolved
chaos in the emotions and body is habitually normal. Fear
comes not from an outside source, but from the realization
that this chaos might be listened to. It seems overwhelming.
And yet, in each instance where there is even a tiny
tip-toeing toward inner quiet, this chaos is heard.
And in that moment, there is a knowing that the chaos must
be listened to, if even for a moment, in order to sort it
out and let it resolve. Loud sounds tend to startle me. And
the chaos held for a lifetime must be deafening. So no
wonder people would prefer quick solutions in a noisy world
rather than periods of reflective silence. When the outer
world is quieter than the internal world, the internal chaos
becomes audible. And it can seem overwhelming.
Last week I decided it was time to create change in my
garden space outdoors. I ordered the bricks for a small
patio, and a build-it-yourself garden shed. These arrived,
filling my driveway and overflowing onto the frontyard,
sideyard and backyard. I quickly realized I was over my
head, way over my head, both in expertise and in sheer
It took a couple of hours for me to hear my body, beyond it
saying NO! to doing all of the work necessary to complete
these projects. My first step was to listen to my heart. I
was re-playing old emotions. And most of them resolved the
moment I asked if they were really mine. Several waves of
'no one will help me' came and went. A few thought-emotions
of 'I'm all alone' came and went. And each time I realized
that these were not my true emotions. My true emotion was
simply 'help, I need help'.
As soon as I felt this emotion clearly, the emotional
energies in my heart and around my body became stable. I
felt my body relax. The connection from my mind to my navel
strengthened. I called a friend, who referred me to another
friend, and a week later the projects are nearly done.
Getting myself to a point where I could listen let me hear
who to call, and how to proceed. And of course, my friends
heard my need, and balanced it with what they were able to
offer &endash; in this case, a bit of supervision to start
the project off, and a referral to someone else who could
see it through.
In moments of chaos, no one thinks clearly unless the body
and emotions are clear. Here in the USA, our society puts an
emphasis on 'doing' and 'achieving', but not on the
underlying qualities of stillness and contemplation that let
us choose how to 'do' and 'achieve'.
As we move into this season of receiving the influx of
Sacred Masculine energy from Sirius, my desire is to use
this energy in a manner that reflects its sacred origins.
May this Sacred Masculine energy form within my life, and
within your life, more that is truly sacred in our external
world. May the forms that arise, be they institutions,
businesses, creative undertakings, new careers, or inner
personal gardens, reflect the sacredness within each human
moving out into the physical world we share.
My blessings and love to all who read this.
