Restore the Balance of the Feminine on the Planet

Women’s Role in the Shift:


Indigenous prophecies about women; and women’s voices in the planetary awakening


We are living at a time in history when the responsibility for the stewardship of humanity and the planet is shifting from the masculine to the feminine. this is resulting in increased leadership from women and increased heart based grounding in men.

As we face the challenges of the future, it is clear that women’s wisdom, values and voices are sorely needed. There is a global need for women to lead.  And women are leading in unique waysNot only is the evidence of women’s influence showing up all over the planet in an accelerating manner, but I have discovered profound historic and prophetic contexts setting the stage for this occurrence.

Here is the historical context for this transfer of planetary stewardship into the hands of the feminine consciousness of the heart as women step into their leadership:

More women than ever in history now have the education, freedom, resources, power and will to harness our attention beyond mere survival issues, and to shift toward the transformation of ourselves and our world.

This emergence into women’s freedom and self-expression was a long time in coming. But there is no turning back now. Over 5,200 years of patriarchal culture’s prescribing and limiting women’s lives--- to be dependent upon a man, and stifling women’s voices-- is coming to an end. It is coming to an end through women, as they reclaim their voices.

Those women born in the 1940’s and 1950’s are the first generation of women under this long patriarchal part of human history that have established self-generated economic autonomy and power. This new autonomy was supported by the ongoing breakthroughs born of the Women’s Movement that made pathways for women in all realms of politics and the workforce.

This breakthrough generation of women is now postmenopausal. Postmenopausal women now comprise the largest demographic group in America. And this cohort of women has found their voice. I am part of this cohort.

As women become freer from the demands of mothering and caregiving within our families, we are turning our caregiving to the human family and to Mother Earth. Women are choosing to invest in the greater good, propelled by our increased education, increased lifespan, economic autonomy and influence. And younger women are being inspired and supported to follow along, finding their feminine essence and making their contributions too.

In America and globally, women of all ages and in large numbers are becoming empowered to assist in transforming the prevailing consciousness of greed, exploitive power and separation, which is the fallout of over 5,200 years of patriarchy. We are doing this in whatever immediate and small ways possible. And sometimes these inspirations turn into large ways.

Here is the prophetic context for this transfer of planetary stewardship into the hands of women:

The first prophetic context is Mayan-- as in the Mayan 2012 prophecies and the Mayan Calendar. Nicaraguan Mayan Grandmother Flordemayo, of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, sent me the Mayan glyph, or pictogram, from their ancient Mayan “Story of Creation” (see image below) that depicts the transfer of the staff of power from the masculine to the feminine at this timeframe in history. This power transfer includes that “power” is being redefined—by women. Power is being redefined as “power to protect and serve all life,” and as “power with,” rather than as domination and “power-over others,” which has been the norm under patriarchy. 

Flordemayo sent the glyph to me in preparation for a teleconference call for the women in Pittsburgh, PA, after her 2007 visit here. She wanted to discuss “The Re-Awakening of the Spirit of the Feminine.”  She said that this reawakening and this transfer of the staff of power are occurring now, as we move through the 2012 calendar timeframe and beyond, to accelerate our evolutionary shift of consciousness. At the end of December 2012, Don Alejandro (Grand Elder of Guatemalan Council of Elders) formally transferred in ceremony this staff of leadership to Flordemayo symbolizing this shift from the masculine consciousness to the feminine consciousness. Other indigenous cultures conducted similar ceremonies across the world acknowledging the rebalancing of the feminine. The 13 Indigenous Grandmothers are an example of this shift. Their work is to "awaken people to create a new way of life that will bring the planet back into balance before it is too late." A frequently heard Native American prophecy attributed to the Hopi is "when the grandmothers speak, the world will heal". The Thirteen Grandmothers' work is a potent catalyst for this planetary healing.

The other profound, previously hidden prophecy I recently learned about is that every 13,000 years, there are spiritually trained planetary guardians who transfer the guardianship of planetary evolution between the genders.  And this responsibility has just been transferred in several locations, via several cultural ceremonies, from the masculine to the feminine. With this transfer of power, the life force energy of the Earth—Earth’s Kundalini— was also transferred. It was moved from its previous 13,000 year location in Tibet, to its new location in the area of Chile and Peru, by these same planetary guardians. (See Drunvalo Melchezedik’s book, Serpent of Light Beyond 2012: The Movement of the Earth’s Kundalini and the Rise of the Female Light, 1949-2013).

Does this completed prophetic 13,000 year cycle have anything to do with why the Dalai Lama made a stunning statement at a September 2009 Vancouver peace conference, about women saving the world? (see “Wake Up Call to Action” below). Synchronistically, several global male leaders in addition to the Dalai Lama are responding in support of this process of transferring stewardship from the Masculine to the Feminine… whether or not they consciously know about this amazing historical and prophetic context of the global need for women to lead.

To understand what I mean, I invite you to read below, the following “Wake Up Call to Action.” It says it all. I received it as a spirit-inspired  “download,” as we at Women Waking the World were finalizing our website launch. It connects the dots of all the amazing pieces of information that have been coming together. Please go to www.womenwakingtheworld.com to see the “portal” that that connects the work of many amazing visionary women who are emerging globally to assist the great awakening of humanity, and who are bringing balance and sacred partnership between the Feminine and Masculine.

The Wake Up Call to Action for Women Waking the World



The sacred responsibility of guiding and protecting our planetary evolution is now being transferred from the masculine to the feminine. Ancient prophecies actually foretold of such a time, as depicted in the Mayan glyph showing the transfer of the Staff of Power to the Spirit of the Feminine at this time in history.

Many male global leaders are committed to this process and in fact state that the role of men at this time in history is to protect women as we take up this vital work. Here are some of their words:

It has been said: “Our planet, Mother Earth, is dying. It is women who are needed to activate the world soul.”  ~Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee

It has been said: “Women and the Earth are inseparable. The fate of one is the fate of the other”~Thomas Berr

It has been said: It is through women that the future will be insured. ~Indigenous prophecy

It has been said: “Women have within their bodies a pure and incorruptible power, of the creation of life, of oneness. Nothing new can be born without full participation of the feminine.” ~Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee

It has been said: “We men have had our turn and made a proper mess of things. We need women to save us. Time is running out.” ~Archbishop Desmond Tutu

It has been said: “The world will be saved by the Western woman.”

~His Holiness the Dalai Lama


As a woman waking up in behalf of myself and all life, I acknowledge this transition of responsibility. I join in claiming my personal power and authentic voice in this vital time of planetary awakening.

So now, we the undersigned, as Women Waking the World, say in response:

I say: I acknowledge the centuries of imbalance that have occurred through a left-brain patriarchal consciousness of separation and domination, which resulted in devaluing the feminine.


I say: I acknowledge the polarization and pain generated by this devaluing of the feminine, and the ongoing impact it has in myself, my global sisters and brothers, and the Earth.


I say: I commit to taking action to reclaim feminine wisdom, values and influence in the service of addressing this planetary imbalance, understanding that no problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it.


I say: I commit to taking action to reclaim my own wholeness. I know that in healing myself, I contribute to the healing of my sisters, brothers and the Earth. I begin with the act of deep listening and a willingness to speak my truth.


NOW is the time for women on the planet.

I invite you to join this amazing global transformation led by inspired women…perhaps you are a part of it already and didn’t even know it.

I want to leave you with this poem, “The Ancient Ones,” by Patricia Reis, excerpted from her book, Through the Goddess: A Woman’s Way of Healing:

We say the time of waiting is over.

We say the silence has been broken.

We say there can be no forgetting now.

We say,



We are the bones

of your grandmothers’ grandmothers.

We have returned now.

We say you cannot forget us now.

We say we are with you


And you are us.
