Tonight I was made to feel like a Queen. Or to be more specific - like Pacha Mama - who is of course the mother of all mothers and the queen of all queens. In fact, she is everything.
I returned to the Andes after 10 days in Mexico on Tuesday and tonight was my first outing since being home. It was such a beautiful welcome to walk into the sunny garden of the Wilkamayu cervezeria and be greeted by the shining faces of my Andean Family, warmly welcoming me home as if I'd been away for years. It was heart warming to say the least and I was happy as a pig in poo.
I have to say that some of the Brothers I have here in the Andes just astound me some times with their gentleness and reverence to the feminine. A few of them in particular just bring me to tears with their genuine adoration of women.
And tonight one of them did. Literally.
I was chatting with my friend Isaac. He has just been to France to visit family and he was sharing with me how blessed he feels that he has had the opportunity in his life to grow up in the Andes and develop such a deep and unwavering connection with the Apu's (Mountain Spirits) and Pacha Mama. He shared with me that he never ever feels alone because he knows he always has his guardians, allies and the divine mother supporting him, loving him and guiding him wherever he goes.
He went on to say how grateful he is for women. For the feminine. How he has come to realise that we are 'everything' and he humbly surrenders himself to our power and our grace. How humanity couldn't exist without us and how he adores us whether it be mother, sister, daughter, wife, friend or lover like we are pacha mama herself. Because we ARE pacha mama herself.
Ps - he wears a gold wedding band - he has married himself to pacha mama. Like really, he has taken a vow to our Mother Earth.
This man is divine.
Now I am surrounded by some pretty awake men, super committed to the healing and union of the divine masculine and feminine, but still in a lot of interactions and conversations I have had with men I know (and of course there are some incredible exceptions to this rule) have been more about the need for us to balance the polarities than to totally surrender themselves in adoration and love and fully celebrate the power of the divine feminine. For women themselves. Just because they want too.
I actually found myself almost excusing myself to Isaac saying 'well you guys are amazing too, we also wouldn't be here without you. And we do have both polarities within us, so you have this essence too..' At which point he stopped me and basically insisted that I accept my magnificence and my power and not to down play it (in his own words). To embrace and know that we are everything, and without us there would be nothing much at all. That we must realise how important we are.
He went on to say in his gorgeous broken English that men are awesome but they run around like headless chickens (again in his words - actually it was more of a hand motion... 🤣) from one thing to the next, distracted by too many things, not able to commit, chasing things that don't mean much and it's the women, the powerful pacha mamas, that know how to hold the shit down!! And show their men how to do the same.. 😉
Right on Brother!!!
I've learned to become gracious at accepting compliments but this one was surprisingly hard for me to take! It was a complete unadulterated, uncensored, unapologetic honouring of the feminine. He wasn't for a second trying to come onto me or tell me what I wanted to hear. This was a genuine man with a genuine heart reverently sharing his wisdom on what he has genuinely come to know.
A man has to really know himself, and be super solid in himself to have the humility to 'bow at the foot of the goddess' in this way. It takes strength, groundedness, open heartedness, authenticity and a huge absence of ego.
My friend Isaac really embodies the divine masculine in the most beautiful and powerful ways. Oh and ps - this is a man who makes K'intus (an offering of 3 coca leaves always given to something or somewhere Sacred) and gives them to women as they walk in the door with his prayers and blessings infused into the leaves for her. Tonight he gathered a hat full of sweet smelling night jasmine and went around gifting every woman some for her hair.
He remembers every conversation he has had with you because he listens intently to everything that you say. With his heart not with his ears. He will wrap his manta (blanket) around you if you are cold after he has sealed it with a blessing and a kiss. He is present and interested in hearing your perspective and reviving your wisdom and acknowledges your intuitive gifts as a woman.
And he isn't the only one. I have many brothers here that embody these same qualities. And across the world. It's just that Isacc strikes me as so authentic and genuine. Probably because he has never done a course in tantra or conscious communication. He wouldn't even know what that is. And he doesn't need too.
What he has is connection. He understands the power and beauty and nourishment of Mother Earth because he has spent time with her. He is grateful to her for his very life. He knows without her, we would not be here. He knows she nourishes him, provides for him and holds him in her loving embrace. He knows she is creation herself and he sees that 'she' in every women he meets. And he honours us with immense gratitude and respect in the way he does our Pacha Mama.
That's all. Simple but profound.
I think Isaac could teach us all a thing or two.
Thankyou brother for allowing me to really feel what it is to be completely adored, respected and revered and loved. It was just the medicine I needed. I really did feel like a queen.
