Sekhmet, divinity and female power

Sekhmet is the name of a female deity from ancient Egypt. With the slender body of a young woman and head of a lion, she represented the most fierce and powerful aspect of women, not the domesticated cat (Bastet) and not the nurturing cow (hathor) and not the sacred mother - (That's Isis, ECD!!) But the phusical, raw and strong woman. The wild beast in the feminine nature, the part inside us that urges us to protect our young with our life.

The famous female pharaoh Hatshepsut knew the power of woman. She wore a lions' tail as part of her regalia. Why shouldn't she, as well as any man, be able to wear the title "Divine ruler of the two lands?? (Upper and lower Egypt).

Woman, know that you as well have the right to the title "Divine ruler of your own life". Never see yourself as weak, because you are not. Never see yourself as small, you are not!

Take control. And keep Sekhmet in your hearts, as a reminder of your true nature.

In the universe,nothing is more powerful, more awesome, more amazing than Woman, when She is informed, when She is united with Her Sisters.

The strategy of Her enemy has been to divide Her, to isolate Her, to make Her doubt Her power or to prevent Her from discovering it in the first place - and for much of human history,that has worked -- to the loss and detriment of civilization.

We all lose out when Cinderella is cleaning ashes from the hovel fireplace instead of overseeing the kingdom alongside Prince Charming.
