How to Embrace The Divine Feminine in Business

Learn how you can bring in more Divine Feminine energy to your business from spiritual entrepreneur Ayesha Hilton

“The Divine Feminine is an energy that has been with us since ancient times. Consciousness is basically divided up into the ‘masculine’ side and the ‘feminine’ side, and we need both to achieve our highest creative potential.”

-Suzanne Kingsbury

The Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine are the evolved and sacred expression of the feminine and masculine that we have access to. Yet very few people have experienced or witnessed the Divine Feminine or Divine Masculine.

Aside from growing up in patriarchy, where both the Divine Feminine and Masculine have had to hide, our current fast-paced, always on, constantly connected world, means that we have become even more disconnected from these aspects of ourselves.

In business, especially, we have seen the masculine take precedence over the feminine. In most work cultures, the feminine qualities are not appreciated and most women working in these environments have to take on the masculine qualities to get ahead.

That is why so many women are leaving corporates to create their own businesses that work for them. Women entrepreneurs and business owners are changing the world and one way they are doing this is through embracing the feminine in their businesses.

I fell into having a business because I was a single parent with a 3-week-old baby and I didn’t want to put my daughter into childcare at such a young age. I wanted to spend all my time with her. So I did work at night or when she was asleep and I grew a business that was able to support us.

Since then, I have noticed that much of the education and advice around business is led by Bro Marketers and it is easy to get swayed into doing things their way. But many of us have found out the hard way that these tactics don’t work for us because they are not in alignment with who we are and how we want to run our businesses.

By understanding the Divine Feminine and how we can express this more in our business, we really can change our own lives and the world! The Divine Feminine is the sacred expression of positive and powerful feminine energy that can exist in any gender.

The qualities of the Divine Feminine include:

  • Receptivity
  • Presence
  • Sacredness
  • Loving Kindness
  • Self-Compassion
  • Self-Nurturing
  • Allowing
  • Pleasure
  • Sensuality

Imagine what the world would be like if embraced these powerful and amazing Divine Feminine qualities for ourselves, our partners, our children, our communities, and the planet.

We can connect most easily to the Divine Feminine as women through our beautiful and precious bodies. Our bodies know far more than we give them credit for. Our bodies serve as an access point to most of the Divine Feminine qualities.

As women, we too often hate on our bodies and close down our knowing, our truth, and our sensuality. By truly appreciating, honoring, loving, and listening to our bodies, we can bring more of the Divine Feminine into our daily lives.

For our own enjoyment and success in life and business, we need the balance of the masculine and feminine. The masculine allows us to get stuff done in an orderly manner. The Divine Masculine provides a container for the Divine Feminine to flow.

But how do we do this?

Embracing the Divine Feminine, in our lives and businesses, can be done by:

  • Honoring our emotions and desires
  • Listening to our intuition and knowing
  • Honoring and caring for our bodies and paying attention to her messages
  • Speaking our truth and sharing our inner wisdom
  • Creating a sacred space and rituals
  • Collaborating with others
  • Connecting with others in community
  • Expressing gratitude and appreciation
  • Using our imaginations to help manifest what we desire
  • Honoring our sexuality
  • Expressing our creativity
  • Knowing ourselves (the shadows and light)
  • Living in alignment with the moon and our menstrual cycles

In business, this can mean having structures in place to support you while allowing yourself to fully feel your emotions without judgement, and listening to your gut response and your intuition when making decisions.

It’s about finding a balance between doing what needs to be done while tuning into what turns you on and doing that. Asking for help and support when you need it. And giving yourself time off when you’re menstruating or simply need rest.

You can also create scared rituals and routines that support the expression of the Divine Feminine. Every morning before I sit down at my desk, I have a ritual that starts my day in a sacred way. I light a candle, set an intention, turn on my essential oil burner, and play my Tibetan medicine healing bowls.

I also have a womb-space practice. By dropping into my womb-space, I tap into my feminine, sensual energy. I can bring this energy to my work and create amazing things. To do this, simply drop your awareness into your womb-space (this can be done regardless of whether you have a womb or not).

With this awareness on your womb-space, breathe deeply and exhale with a sound a few times. As you do so, you will become more present with your body and your feminine energy. You may also get turned on and feel juicy! What a way to start your work day.

I journal almost daily. Expressing my emotions and letting myself truly feel whatever is coming up for me (and trying not to judge those emotions – but sometimes I do). I have a gratitude practice that allows me to appreciate the goodness in my life. I also like to write my desired future in past tense as if it has already happened and express my gratitude for this. The simple act of writing can be transformative.

I am still learning how to fully embrace the Divicine Feminine in my business. Thus far, it feels great. I still fall into the old ways of doing things now and then, which often leaves me exhausted and feeling out of sorts. I take note now of how I feel as a barometer of when I need to do next, allowing rather than pushing.

Part of this learning is to remember to keep asking the question, “Does this feel good in my body?” My body knows more than my brain and I need to trust my body.

Next time you are doing something in your business, whether it be a strategy, offering, process, or an interaction with someone, ask yourself how it feels in your body. Listen. If it feels good, keep going. If it doesn’t feel good, what else could you do?

As you have seen, there are many ways we can embrace and express the Divine Feminine more in our lives and businesses. As we learn to express the Divine Feminine, it will have an impact on not only on us, but all those around us.

How can you honor and express the Divine Feminine more in your life and business?

Accessing Your Highest Self Through Tarot with Margaux Jones

Margaux Jones teaches us that tarot is a way for us to access our highest self.

Published

on

Margaux Jones in her studio creating beautiful art.

Margaux Jones, better known as MJ is an artist, creative, writer, and mother. Her tarot cards have seen a huge success globally, but like many of us her story begins off the path and away from her purpose.

In our interview MJ talks about how she has been artistic since she was a small girl, recounting a story of selling her art work in South Boston at the age of five and later in life attending Parsons School of Design. Her life led her to getting a job working in a software company in Seattle, all the while MJ continued to dream of a full time creative life that afforded all the simple luxuries of walking her child to school, working from home, and creating art work that uplifted the collective.

Tapping into her artistic gifts she began creating jewelry that found a space in heart of Seattle’s communities and she was able to transition to this work full time. Then she hit a snag, life tipped the tables upside down and her jewelry business began to wane. She encountered a handful of other personal set backs and challenges and was beginning to believe that her spirit guides had gone off on vacation, as she jokingly says in our interview.

MJ states: “The best art we make comes through difficulty, it’s how we express ourselves.”  Calling on Source and her Guides MJ sent a beacon to them to return, because she needed them, she needed help and she needed reconnect with inspiration. In the midst of that signal to the Universe the vision for her Crow Tarot deck hit her consciousness and she began working on creating what would become a global phenomenon and widely heralded deck, even winning the prestigious CARTA Award from the International Tarot Foundation in 2019. MJ says this moment was pivotal, “Crow Tarot was life changing. ” MJ was offered a major deal through a gaming company to produce the full deck of Crow Tarot to meet the demands of its popularity. She has produced six decks since the Crow Tarot came to market.

Her work is solely focused on creating tarot and oracle decks that are masterfully created through her artistic and intuitive process. MJ shares her process for creating a deck, card by card. She discusses setting out into nature, with a card in mind looking to connect with that cards specific energy and intention. Finding inspiration in the wild she begins to collect ideas from mother nature, curating the perfect card. Once she has pulled the image together, she then begins to think about the person who may be holding the card, looking for wisdom and direction in their life. She taps into that energy, carefully writing the guidance and words that will align the aspirant.

MJ says that when we work with tarot, we are working with our highest self. That we are reaching into the ether, compassionately holding ourselves along our journey and accessing our highest self to help us find the guidance and wisdom we need to change course. Like a loving friend, who finds just the right combination of words and sympathy, tarot gently teaches you how to change, evolve, and move forward without fear. We can trust tarot, if we trust ourselves.

MJ’s North Star remains art and her soul purpose is to create tarot cards that uplift, inspire, and guide the collective to their highest self.

The Divine Energies

Natalia Santos shares a poem about leaning into Divine Masculine and Feminine energies.

Divine Feminine, Divine Masculine

The essence of divine energies,

Allow yourself to feel the energies, allow yourself to be.

Do not tin the energetic energies. Do not judge them, let them be.

Explore and understand the flows and stillness of femininity.

Exercise and explore the actions of masculinity. Allow them to merge, grow together, blend and infuse.

Be the creator spirit that you desire to be.

Pour yourself that glass of tea,

Watch how it pours into your glass. The flow of the feminine. The cup of the masculine.

The watery trickle of imagination, daydreams, and creativity.

To the grounding of the cup which hits the root. Ravaging roots circling into the ground.

We watch in awe. As they work together.

THE MAGDA

Restoring the truth of Mary Magdalene, we set free the daughters of her female lineage.

Published

on

Photo by Krista Xiomara of Mary Magdalene Statue in Mission of Santa Barbara, CA

The image of this statue is a snap shot in time of a very famous Abrahamic moment before Christianity was Christ led. It sits in the chapel of the Mission of Santa Barbara. It is my very favorite.

The Magda represents something very different to me now, then she did in my youth. If you listen to my podcast you know that I spent years on my own spiritual expedition—mining for truth, historical facts, seeking to understand how we have come to believe what we believe, and a great deal of unlearning and unbecoming.

After following threads of truth and light, I found myself at the feet of The Magda’s origin story from the lens of historical fact instead of religious lore. Shuffling through pages of her gospel and the robust work of scholars and anthropologists who have diligently reconstructed her life.

In my expedition, I found a very loose and weakly worn thread tied to a shared story of who and what The Magda was.

You see Pope Gregory, who held the post of St. Peter’s chair during the middle of the 5th century most famously made a doubly deductive leap to infer The Magda was a woman of improper sexual behavior, known to many—during his 23rd homily.

Giving her a reputation that tainted her for thousands of years and when you taint one woman…

You taint us all.

This pivot point in Christianity for many young girls becomes both a cautionary tale AND a defining moment—where we begin to solidify our separation of self. From our femininity, our bodies, our desires, and our truth.  We are violently pushed into purity, whether we want to  comply or not.

It is an unspoken rite of passage where our religious institutions teach us how to judge ourselves and other women, consciously, unconsciously, and with fierce bias. We become suspicious and untrusting of ourselves.

We learn that God loves us most if we remain untouched and virginal in a world full of temptation and men who won’t take “no” for an answer.

And of course this moment is amplified by the pivot point: Eve in the garden (naked and desire-less I’m sure) who just couldn’t behave herself—ate an apple and doomed humanity with a crunch heard around the world (which mostly likely was a pomegranate {now that we know the perceived geographical location of Eden}).

Little lies, big lies, omissions, embellishments, and fabrications…these are the things that continue to suffocate humanity. First the pomegranate, then The Magda.

How strange no men in Abrahamic history ever needed redemption nor exorcism from their sexual encounters or their entire species fettered to an unflattering norm and unattainable expectation. Food for thought after all this talk about apples and pomegranates. All this truth makes me hungry.

The Magda had her reputation partially returned to its wholeness when in the 1960’s the Catholic Church recanted this damning interpretation.

However, the fullness of her restoration remains at humanities edge because the lie is allowed to be perpetuated through shared story telling and lack of course correction when the subject arises.

Her gospel was discovered in Egypt in 1896, being burned to keep a family warm nonetheless and almost went completely unearthed. What a miracle to have found it. I bet The Magda was dancing in the heavens that day.

I would consider her gospel to be the very most compelling and significant evidence that we are equal parts human and divine. That God is not only around us, but IS us.

In her gospel she shares with the twelve male disciples that Christ has shown her the source of God; found in the very breath that keeps our soul tethered to this human body. That if we want to align our very being with God all we must do is breathe and we touch the heart of God. Heart to heart.

We are never, nor have we ever been separated from the divine.

Wherever this l finds you, promise me this:

First, to tell the truth to yourself and the world around you.

Secondly, that you will remember The Magda was indeed a human being, most beloved by Christ. She was a deeply holy and spiritual person. She was NOT a woman of ill repute. There can be no such thing, without an equal and responsible male of ill repute and I for one, refuse to sentence any of my brothers and sisters to a prison of judgment. Instead choosing to hold them both in the light of love and highest esteem of their divinity and humanity.

Lastly, when we restore The Magda; we restore the entirety of her female lineage and resurrect the sacredness of our shared birthplace, in the womb of our women.
