Remember, Ignite, Become

Over the last five years I have been fortunate enough to stumble across some absolutely life changing books, each one falling into my lap at exactly the right time, when I was ready to receive the messages they contained. There is such an abundance of ancient wisdom out there connected to the Divine Feminine and the Goddess, and once on this path I have discovered just how much magic there is within the realms of feminine awakening and empowerment.

I have reviewed five of my favourite feminine books – the ones that have most ignited my essence and activated the ancient knowledge within. Enjoy!

 

1. The Spiral Dance by StarHawk

 


The image of the Goddess inspires women to see ourselves as divine, our bodies as sacred, the changing phases of our lives as holy, our aggression as healthy, our anger as purifying, and our power to nurture and create, but also to limit and destroy when necessary, as the very force that sustains all life. Through the Goddess, we can discover our strength, enlighten our minds, own our bodies and celebrate our emotions. We can move beyond narrow, constricting roles and become whole”

Incredibly this book was originally published in 1979 and then was republished and updated in 1989 and 1999. This book is one of those must-read books for anyone who is interested in the Goddess tradition, spiritual feminism and witchcraft.

Starhawk’s radical and revolutionary book brought me home to my mystical self and helped me remember the ancient traditions of magic and ritual. Thank Goddess for this book!

My Rating: 4 Stars

2. The Inner Goddess Makeover by Tanishka

This book combines ancient women’s wisdom with fun experimental processes, interesting facts and autobiographical accounts, making it ideal for women wanting to awaken their full feminine potential. Presented in seven steps to meet and understand the seven universal feminine aspects.

Tanishka is also known as the moon woman and has a fabulous website and holds online trainings and retreats.

3. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

“In the red tent, the truth is known. In the red tent, where days pass like a gentle stream, as the gift of Innana courses through us, cleansing the body of last month’s life, women give thanks – for repose and restoration, for the knowledge that life comes from between our legs, and that life costs blood.”

 The oldest love story never told. This book is an absolute classic. It had me in tears many times. Tears of joy, remembrance, sadness. I could not put it down. It tells the story of Dinah- daughter of Jacob and Leah, sister of Joseph. I felt such a strong remembering whilst reading this book, a reminder of the Red tent. Where the wisdom of the Goddess echoed in our bones and we shared our truths and our worries. This book flows like the divine blood the tale speaks of. Must read.

My Rating: 5 Stars!!

 

4. Women who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes

To find the Wild Woman, it is necessary for women to return to their instinctive lives, their deeper knowing. Let us remember ourselves back to the Wild Woman soul. Let us sing her flesh back onto our bones. Shed any false coats we have been given. Don the true coat of powerful instinct and knowing. Infiltrate the psychic lands that once belonged to us. Unfurl the bandages, ready the medicine. Let us return now, wild women howling, laughing, singing up The One who loves us so.”

 When I first started reading this book a friend said to me – “this book will stir your soul.” It did just that indeed. This is my favourite book of all time. That I read and re-read over again. Reflecting on particular chapters and teachings. This book is radical, a gift of profound wisdom. Every human on earth would benefit from reading this wild power. The depth in this book is like deep deep oceans. Taking us down into the wisdom within each of us. The wisdom of the Wild Woman.

My Rating: 5 Stars!!

 

5. Womb Awakening by Azra Bertrand and Seren Bertrand

Initiatory wisdom from the Creatrix of all life.

 

“Paradise is within us; Eden is the mother matrix of our life-coded primordial feminine biology. The Great Womb that birthed All is pregnant with magical possibilities; we can weave with these infinite creative threads to receive new strands of wisdom. We are still connected by a special umbilical cord to the placenta of the Void and can draw upon sustenance, nourishment and support from her Cosmic Womb”

 This book is an absolute masterpiece. Created by a beautiful couple, the wisdom in this book is exceptional. It’s had me screaming yes yes yes! And grabbing my highlighter to underline profound paragraphs. This book is a journey back to the Womb. The pictures, the writing, the journey – exquisite. This book is just full of essential Womb Wisdom.
