The beautiful centrality of pure opposites

 May she find
in all this
day or night
the beautiful
centrality
of pure opposites
David Whyte
This is the journal page that I created while guiding my workshop "Journaling as Sacred Container" in Virginia for SoulFire Retreats. A lot of my trip, and especially my time in Virginia, was centered around the relationship between masculine and feminine energy. Every card I pulled, all the signs and messages I was given and even this page, all seemed centered around this dynamic. When I was painting this page it presented with a very strong female seed as the basis or strength from which the masculine energy could grow and flow out of, and that masculine energy then seemed to come back down to embrace and protect that female energy out of which it originated, a very nurturing and symbiotic relationship. The next day I noticed my page in reverse and here I saw that as a result of this relationship, the feminine energy was able to rise up and flourish, emerging grounded in her own power yet supported fully by the male energy. It seems no coincidence that the phoenix also asked to be placed within this feminine/masculine energy dynamic.

What messages do you find in your journal pages?
What is called in her rises from the ground
and is found in her body,
what she is given is secret even from her.
