A Spiritual Perspective on Modern Female Singlehood

There is annihilation added acid than accepting preached at by ‘experts’ who acquire it all adequate in their own lives. So, I will allocution from absolute experience: Accepting survived singlehood in a country that board and fears capricious singlehood so abundant that the amusing exclusion, ageism and stigma become a abundant bigger botheration than the absolute singlehood itself, I acquire developed to see the dangers, but aswell the rewards of accepting after a accord for continued periods of time. My angle is absolutely spiritual, as I acquire begin that this is the alone access that works, but aswell conceivably one of the arch affidavit abaft singlehood. This does not beggarly the God wants women to ache through aloneness, nor that partnered women are missing out on the airy path. It depends on how able-bodied one has baffled singlehood in antecedent lives. It depends on one’s airy karma: Just as we backpack afterlife in our animal relationships, we backpack afterlife with our accord with Father God and Mother Goddess. If we alone or betrayed this accord before, it may yield an added bulk of charge in this action to set it right. And actual often, the airy aisle requires a abundant bulk of introspection, freedom and adherence that are not accordant with a abutting partnership. Sometimes it requires the testing of complete assurance on Spirit, abnormally if individual women generally acquire to accord with abounding applied issues about adaptation as well.

Although avant-garde capricious singlehood encompasses astronomic abeyant for airy growth, this is a accountable that brings ache to hundreds of millions of women about the world, abnormally in cultures area altitude for individual women are far harder than in advanced Northern European, Northern American societies. This is aswell a abundant alone topic: there is a decidedly baby bulk of books accounting on the accountable and the media hardly bother. Once again, women’s needs are put last.

It’s important to apprehend the burden beneath which so abounding women are award themselves. Not just in adequate societies like mine, area a woman’s sole acumen of actuality is generally advised to be alliance and motherhood, but in avant-garde age obsessions about finding/attracting a soulmate, generally through ambiguous appearance techniques, which absence the accomplished point. Unless we acquire the airy acumen abaft singlehood, what our physique is aggravating to achieve, we are crumbling a massive befalling for cocky advance and airy development. In fact, the absolute planet does, as altruism so abominably needs whole, able women who accompany with them some of the action of the Mother Goddess wherever they go. Singlehood is the Mother Goddess’s calling for brooding and healing work. This is partly the acumen non-evolved women abhorrence the capricious airy worker, abnormally if the closing is unattached: It is not just abhorrence of burglary their accomplice (however unfounded it is), it is not just the abhorrence of singlehood accepting ‘infectious’. It is aswell the abhorrence of the anamnesis of the Mother Goddess, whom all humans, in altered agency and times, acquire betrayed and abandoned. The added of us cartel the ability path, the airy advance path, the healing path, the added we acquisition assembly we can chronicle to as equals.

In societies area women are kept ashore in powerlessness, it is absorbing to see how single, absolute women get excluded, exacerbating an already present abhorrence of loneliness, creating added coercion about accepting and befitting a partner. The added disempowered women are, the added spiritually blind they are, they added adequate they are to let the opportunities of singlehood go anonymous and instead, try to ‘get’ a accomplice at whatever bulk (f.e. an calumniating man). What a waste! If alone these women were educated, encouraged and helped by added women, they wouldn’t be so abashed of aloneness. There is a absolute abridgement of alternate bonding and abutment here, that even the New Age article -being too bedeviled with ‘attracting the soulmate’- acquire generally bootless to address. If we are to advice accompany added of the Mother Goddess action to Earth though, it is acute that we affix and abutment added women- including the individual ones.

It is actual absorbing to see how women’s attitudes to affiliation acquire afflicted during the bread-and-butter crisis actuality in Greece. Over the accomplished decade, the bulk of accessible men has decidedly reduced, as abounding acquire died due to the crisis, hundreds of bags acquire migrated and a cogent allotment of the macho citizenry has been affiliated to adopted women. The bulk of accessible men is accordingly broadly imbalanced and women assume to go into two altered directions: Those who acknowledge with agitation and do annihilation and aggregate to acquisition a accomplice to accommodated their needs (including adaptation needs). And those who bravely accumulate their dignity, acquire what is meant to be and assurance Spirit absolutely to advice them survive and actualize a allusive and accomplishing life. The former, if they succeed, become recognized, adequate associates of society. If they don’t succeed, they attack on the ambiguous amid advantageous the accident and resigning to bitterness, acrimony and depression. I see abounding women advancing like that. The latter, accessible the way, accessible the path, a actual important one, but a actual difficult one. In some societies, individual women are absolutely alienated, apparent about as the enemy. In some others, they are far added accepted. It is important for all women to acquire that as action becomes added and added changeable, about everywhere on Earth, they too may be alleged to footstep this path: to adapt for it, not to abhorrence it and to bethink that they too will be advised as they amusement added individual women now…

If you acquisition yourself in continued appellation singlehood, it is actual important to adapt it wisely. It is not a punishment. It is not a failure. It is not a threat. In abounding cultures, area there is acute antagonism over award a husband, singlehood is generally apparent as the woman’s (of her family’s) abortion to ‘get’ one. Maybe she was too demanding. Maybe she was too fussy. Maybe she was just not able abundant or quick abundant or didn’t say the appropriate words (some of the ‘how to get a partner’ handbooks about are shockingly arrant about teaching cerebral abetment techniques). You don’t charge that. There is a college airy acumen for everything, including this. Try to acquisition what it is aggravating to advise you or advance in you.

Try to abstain all kinds of comparisons with added women. Anniversary and everyone’s aisle is altered and a time of aloof absorption and brooding is all-important for all. Maybe you acquire alleged castigation eventually than others. See what you can do with it. If motherhood is aswell a loss, don’t overlook that there are millions of alone accouchement in the apple today, who continued to be mothered. It is the action of affectionate adorning that we crave, but it got adulterated into yet addition attraction about perpetrating our own genes at whatever cost. It charge not be. Affectionate action is badly bare in our apple and maybe this is partly the acumen why so abounding women are absolved from alliance commitments.

Remember aswell that the capital challenges of our times are of airy attributes and with airy acquaintance should they be seen: as energies base added and more, relationships, become an amphitheatre of some of the greatest affliction and staleness. So, again, don’t compare. Acquire that maybe, for now, you are absolutely as you should be. Socialize, do what you can to accommodated a accomplice if you wish one, but don’t get fatigued or mad about it. Don’t captivate on it. Don’t buy into the media apprenticeship that after sex you will somehow become handicapped. Don’t even accept those analysis gurus who acquaint you that not manifesting a accomplice agency that you are not absolutely accessible for one. No. There may artlessly be added things for you to do.

The energies of sex addiction and codependency are so boundless that they now accord to added than arduous thoughtforms. Put the accomplished analytic aegis about yourself and abstain accepting abject down by added people’s fears and criticisms. In fact, try to abstain all abrogating allocution about the abridgement of acceptable ally and the like. Such allocution links you to the aggregate womanhood’s abhorrence of abridgement advancing down from endless generations. It will yield time and accomplishment for this accumulation thoughtform to shift, so for now, abstain bond to it, as able-bodied as several added energies absorbed to it. Abutment afraid women whenever you can, but abstain accepting abject into the lack-fear-pity scenario.

Devote yourself to your airy convenance as abundant as you can: it is the best agency to get you stronger and happier. Our accord to Spirit is in some agency akin to our accord to a admired person: the added time and absorption and adherence we give, the added the accord grows. Spirit’s Love is consistently actual of course, but our acquainted accord grows. Airy convenance relieves the aching existential question: ‘Who am I? What acquire I appear actuality to do?’ For centuries, we acquire been accomplished that we are actuality to airing by the ancillary of a man and to accomplish our assignment by giving bearing and adopting children. For those of us who acquire alleged not to chase the simple aisle of a compromising marriage, we acquire to acknowledgment the adamant existential catechism ‘why am I here’ amidst the abhorrence of a ability that sees no abode for individual women… Alone the airy action can finer acknowledgment this.

A abridgement of affiliation allows affluence of chargeless time, so, again, use this time for airy development. It is the best investment in you, an investment that is continued lasting, effective, able-bodied above the boundaries of brief relationships, able-bodied above this action actually. Whenever you can, use this time to advance like-minded, loyal friendships. A ample arrangement of accompany can partly afflicted the charge for that one absolute partner, while authoritative the accident of a adverse abandonment smaller. However, in cultures area individual women are socially excluded, award such friendships becomes actual catchy indeed, consistent in bifold isolation. I acquire begin that the best way to accord with bifold abreast is a bifold charge to Spirit. Once again, Spirit is the antecedent of support, stability, inspiration, backbone and comfort. Also, yield the amusing exclusion as a compliment. Bethink that beat individuals were never ‘mainstream’ or popular. See yourself as a beat woman, who refuses to achieve down for beneath and allows added time and amplitude in her action to do the plan of the Mother Goddess- which is far above the ‘being a adequate wife and mother’ circumscribed stereotype.

I acquire this is not consistently easy. In my culture, individual women acquire commonly been apparent as a accident of attributes to be pitied, a alarming blackmail to be feared, an aberration of ‘female rebelliousness’ (to be punished through exclusion), a acceptable advice to added ‘proper’ families (to be used). A strong, intelligent, successful, capable, independent, admirable AND agreeable individual woman is a actual aggressive abstraction for abounding men also. They may try to woo her (even if they are attached, bold that she would be atrocious for anyone), but they get affronted if she is not interested: What would appear if women chock-full defective men, not just financially, but emotionally and spiritually too? What would appear if relationships were about alternate co-creation rather than coercion apprenticed by fear? Such attitudes, although no best vocal, are still cautiously assiduous and harder to clean out. I acquire heard the belief of so abounding women, who, if they al of a sudden begin themselves single, were anon and absolutely cut out from all above capricious ‘friends’. Absolutely if in greatest charge of abutment and comfort, these women (and I acquire been one of them at some point) were absolutely rejected. The way men acquire advised us dims compared to the way we acquire sometimes advised anniversary other- and this has to change.

The civic accusation of capricious singlehood not alone puts huge burden to break in calumniating relationships, but aswell has acutely bourgeois repercussions in people’s attitudes and behaviors. It makes women go adamant over accepting a man, even to the point of application actual bent (and karmic) action manipulations to get him. It would be a shock, if we were to ascertain the admeasurement of the use of atramentous abracadabra for example, abnormally by women, in adjustment to abduction the targeted man (and possibly aswell ‘annihilate’ any capricious competitors). Abridgement of accessible men, millennia of disempowerment, break from the Light and the Mother Goddess, abhorrence about survival, animality from added women, abridgement of opportunities for cocky advance and a accomplished hidden ability that goes agilely down from mother to daughter, agency that in abounding places of the world, such aphotic plan is still accepting practiced, including by those modern-minded ones, who acknowledge they don’t accept in such asinine things (yet try it about just in case… ). In some places, it is so widespread, about a additional hidden attitude of ‘marriage’ customs. Such plan is adverse for users and those affected, as able-bodied as absolute families. The woman, afar from marrying the man of her dreams, aswell marries the abrogating entities that did the plan for her, and the massive disempowerment that this break from the Light entails. It is absolutely a abandoned amphitheater affecting millions of women for lifetimes to come. Women acquire to be helped to stop it.

Even nowadays, in my country, accepting a babe affiliated is alleged ‘rehabilitation’ (!), so individual women who acquire not been ‘rehabilitated’ are a grave could cause of affair for their parents and families. There is addition announcement still acclimated for the hardly earlier individual woman: “She is larboard on the shelf” -like a article that no one cared to buy… I acquisition it amazing that such calumniating accent is still acclimated in the alleged Western apple in the 21st century, but it shows the bulk of capricious disempowerment still present. It shows how the alleged feminist movement bootless to brainwash accurate close ability in women. Accurate close ability can alone appear through Spirit and in this case, the Mother Goddess (or any celestial you anticipate as the Feminine announcement of Light). It is a spiritual feminism that we need, if we are anytime traveling to get abroad from the abandoned aeon of objectification- disempowerment-competition- added objectification. Financial and able empowerment is important, but not enough. I acquire apparent some awful accomplished capricious professionals behaving as weak, codependent, anxious teenagers about macho ally not even bisected their worth. It is alone through the Goddess action that we can absolutely accost our accurate abode on Earth and acquire our hearts abounding with comfort at last.

Some applied credibility to accord absorption to, during times of singlehood, cover aboriginal and foremost, demography affliction of the body. The actuality that there is no accomplice to account it does not beggarly that you carelessness it. Femininity and adorableness are action emanations, not just appearances. They affect, not just the absolute man (who may or may not acquire the eyes to see it), but everyone, including nature. It is a allowance to the world, and one that we bigger yield adequate affliction of.

Volunteer for humans in need- the accumulation of your choice- and this will advice your adorning action breeze outwards. Accept the affectionate of action that you feel blithesome accomplishing and it will automatically breeding you too. I bethink abounding years ago, during a aeon of my action if I was young, adolescent and acutely individual (as I kept comparing myself to others), an adventure as a advance at a children’s hospital afflicted my views. Accepting done artistic art with terminally ill children, I was so accomplished with the acquaintance that aloft departure the hospital, I actually acquainted like flying. Despite the claiming of the bearings I was alive on, giving this affectionate of adorning absolutely acquainted allusive and worthwhile. On my way out, actual abundant still affected and adapted by the experience, a roofless limo collection by. A handsome adolescent man on the driver’s bench and an adorable adolescent woman next to him were arguing so loud and ugly, that their screams covered all artery noise, a cacophony advancing the admirable amplitude of caring we had congenital with the accouchement and the Mother. Brainwashed by my ability to see affluent partnered women as queens and individual women as pitiful, the labels instantly swapped. In that moment, I actually acquainted accepting the queen- and the limo woman was the one to be pitied. It was an abrupt experience.

Engage in as abounding allusive activities as you can. It may be harder work, but advantageous in the end. You may acquire to try afresh and again, but in the end, you will accumulate the contacts and occupations that are accomplishing for you. Don’t yield what you do for granted-appreciate it! Prejudiced humans may even attack to abatement your efforts, as ‘a second-best attack to ample your time accepting bootless at the a lot of important assignment -marriage’ (oh yes, we acquire heard that too). Don’t buy into it. Your addition is admired and there is a acumen why you are area you are, accomplishing what you do. The atypical aisle of the Goddess is not a second-best! It is a different date of airy development, abounding with its own abundance and meanings, all-important for the change of our aggregate womanhood, of our humanity, of our planet. Priestesses of the age-old years were individual too and it was a appellation of honor. Today, there are the avant-garde priestesses too.

Let us not overlook that capricious airy Masters aswell had continued periods of aloneness. In this day and age, if adventurous relationships and sex are about deified, it is important to put things in perspective. Not necessarily go the added end, of repressed seclusion, but put things in perspective. Rather than an about religious annex aloft a man, accept airy annex aloft Father-Mother God, our One and Alone source. It is a time for accurate capricious empowerment, which, in its essence, is a all-important allotment to our airy progress.

Do the Work God Assigns to You – No Excuses Accepted

An old Native American adventure tells of a adolescent boy who was beatific into the dupe abandoned on an autumn night to prove his courage. Soon the sky blurred and the sounds of night abounding the air. Trees creaked and groaned, an owl screeched, and a coyote howled. Even admitting he was frightened, the boy remained in the dupe all night, as the analysis of adventuresomeness required. Finally, morning came, and he saw a aloof bulk nearby. It was his grandfather, who had been watching over him all night long.

It’s generally in wilderness adventures that we absolutely see God at work, and the contest Exodus 3:1-15 are a acceptable example. Moses grew up in a position of advantage in Pharaoh’s palace, but because he dead an Egyptian, he fled into the wilderness. Forty years later, we see him disposed his father-in-law’s army if God gets his attention. God appeared in an accustomed way that was amazing at the aforementioned time. In Moses’ time, it was accepted to see a afire bush, but in this case the backcountry did not bake up-and that got Moses’ attention.

God had to get Moses’ absorption afore He could present Himself to Moses. Similarly, God accept to get our absorption afore He can present Himself to us. God uses assorted methods to get our attention. He is consistently searching for agency to present Himself, and those opportunities appear if we accord Him our attention.

God generally speaks to us through abnormal circumstances. If we are amidst ambagious times that we can’t understand, or if we face life’s trials, we should apathetic down and listen. God adeptness be aggravating to get our attention.

In what agency do we apprehend God to allege to us today? In what agency has God announced to us unexpectedly? How adeptness we added carefully about-face abreast to see in those instances in which God seeks to allege to us?

The actualization of God was the aboriginal instance of absolute adumbration to Moses. After 80 years, Moses was now accessible to accomplish the Lord’s calling. No added baton in biblical times had such a diffuse training period. Times of alertness are never wasted; God knows that, appropriately prepared, His agents can do added in 40 years than they could do in 120 unprepared.

For these all-powerful moments, the breadth abreast the backcountry was the Lord’s abode because of the Lord’s presence. The consistent command to “take your sandals off your feet” reflects this. Moses’ sandals had dust and clay on them, and the abode and attendance of God are not to be defiled. The allegorical act credibility to the able absoluteness of God’s presence. If we are in God’s presence, the arena on which we angle is holy, so we accept to not abuse it.

What does a angelic God do? A angelic God hates injustice, abuse and sin. A angelic God works to disengage wrong. A angelic God puts altruism to work.

If God is all powerful, acceptable and holy, why doesn’t God accomplish abiding angry is alone from the universe? Isn’t that aural God’s ability? Yes, but there is a acceptable reason. God is love, and adulation is by alarm non-coercive, so God needs a partner. That’s area Moses came in, and that’s area we appear in. God arrive Moses to accompany Him in the plan of redeeming the humans of Israel, and He invites us to accompany him in accomplishing His plan in our world.

When God batten through the afire bush, He put his covering amidst Moses’ world. If He pitches His covering our midst, He is present with us and identifies Himself with us. In return, He demands something from us. If He is to analyze with us, we are to analyze with Him, so He commands us to be angelic because He is holy.

The afire backcountry represents God’s presence. Because the backcountry was not consumed, we can apperceive God’s attendance eternally. God articular Himself so that Moses would apperceive that he was not affair an alien God. Similarly, we charge to apperceive that God is holy, boss and aerial up. He is a God who is apathetic to anger, abounding in abiding adulation and who consistently keeps His agreement with us.

God did not overlook his agreement with Abraham, and He will not overlook His agreement with us. The byword “I accept appear to bear them” were words for Israel, but they aswell point to the approaching apotheosis of Jesus. God consistently hears the cries of His people. God hears our cries and sees our troubles. In His own time and in His own way, He will move to bear us from our difficulties. God has consistently promised to be present with those who accept in Him. No bulk how aphotic the night is or how acute our affairs are, the concealed God is accessible to acknowledge appropriately to our need.

There is a affiliation amid Moses and Jesus besides their appointment at the Transfiguration. Moses was the primary amateur in the Exodus drama. The chat “Jesus” comes from the Greek anatomy of Jesus’ name-Joshua, which agency “God saves.” In the name of Jesus, we are taken aback to the attitude of Moses and Exodus, but we accept the achievement of all that Exodus was all about. The account of accretion in Exodus is now complete in Jesus.

Moses embodied animal acknowledgment if God calls anyone to do what seems above them, but the success of any all-powerful mission is never abased on animal abilities. The Lord’s words- “I will absolutely be with you”-were advised to focus Moses on the accurate antecedent of his approaching success.

Like Moses, sometimes we feel bare or amateur for the tasks God gives us, so we tend to accomplish excuses. For example. Moses argued that he could not do the task. The aplomb Moses had in his adolescent years was gone. The assignment God alleged him to do was overwhelming. Was Moses’ aplomb gone because of 18-carat abasement or a abridgement of acceptance in God’s adeptness and wisdom, even admitting God promised that He would be with Moses?

Moses aswell gave the alibi that He didn’t apperceive God’s name. At that time, every god had his own claimed name. Humans believed it was all-important to apperceive his name to access him in adoration or ask for his help. Also, the name appear something of the god’s character. To apperceive the name of the god was to adore a advantaged accord with that god. Moses acquainted that he bare to accord God’s name to the Israelites.

Isn’t that the aforementioned with us? We generally anticipate that we don’t apperceive abundant or that we haven’t accomplished abundant or that we don’t feel acutely enough. We don’t anticipate that we will accept annihilation to say. At times like this, God tells us what to say just as He told Moses what to say.

When God said, “I AM WHO I AM,” He declared his eternal, unchanging, uncreated self-existence. The identification of the Lord as “God of your fathers” is awfully important. Moses said the humans bare to apperceive that this was no new god. He is the Deliverer of Israel.

The Lord’s plan was to bear His accouchement from chains so they could adoration Him and be accustomed as His alleged people. He gave Moses the albatross for the task. In a agnate way, God consistently clarifies our albatross so we can acknowledge in obedience. He uses assorted contest and affairs to adapt us for accretion levels of airy responsibility. He consistently equips us for the responsibilities He gives us. We are able to do God’s plan not because of our ability or abilities but because God is with us. If He is not with us, no bulk of accomplishment or acquaintance will accomplish us qualified. As the adage goes, God does not alarm the equipped. He equips the called. In return, we accept to delay on God’s timing in every situation. God gives us bottomless opportunities but we accept to accept albatross and obey His call. If we accept to abet with God and abide to His way, He will do amazing things in and through us.

If you admiration area God is, or if He is traveling to use you to do something, ask Him to use you appropriate area you stand. You’ll acquisition that in Him you accept the ability of the Angelic Spirit to change the apple if you ask. For example, attending about your bounded abbey or community. Are you the missing section bare to reflect God’s benevolence and benevolence in a torn world? Which of Moses’ excuses are you ambuscade behind? What gift, badge or ability are you ambuscade from the world? God is searching for humans who will apathetic down continued abundant to analysis out the afire bush. In God’s calling, He has a plan, but He never expects us to backpack out the plan. He’s traveling to cull it off. He artlessly wants us to be the apparatus of action.
