Feminism vs. Sacred Feminine – Male Chauvinism vs. Sacred Masculine
Posted by Lada Ray
On March 8, I published a very positive, complete with nice pics, article entitled: Dear Women! Happy International Women’s Day! This article on Lada Ray Blog received quite a resonance, with lots of reblogs and social media shares. While most readers enjoyed it, I also saw that it confused some men to the point that we had to delete one or two angry comments.
One of my long-time supporters Emil Resmann wrote | March 9, 2015 at 2:26 pm
The readers on both of my blogs FuturisTrendcast and Lada Ray Blog are approximately 50% men and 50% women. Similarly, when I wrote my novels, I also didn’t discriminate, like some writers do, by targeting exclusively women or men. The readership for my books was always both men and women. When both sexes resonate with the truth of what I say equally, this denotes a true yin-yang balance, crucial for making peace with our 3D world.
There is a lot of talk about Ascension, which means ascending spiritually and physically into 5D – the Fifth dimension. What most people have to understand (and this includes those who consider themselves spiritual) is that in order to ascend to 5D, we have to SETTLE ALL the karma associated with 3D. This effectively means we have to raise our vibration through wisdom, understanding, knowledge, truth and forgiveness. We have to make peace with everything that bothers us in 3D. This, however, is not the same as wearing rosy glasses or closing our eyes to the ugliness that goes on around us. It means just the opposite: opening our eyes and actively participating in changing the ugliness into beauty.
Some will ask, what happens if you are dealing with ugliness – and it rubs off? What if you yourself become bitter and angry, what if you yourself lose the way? This has happened to some people; this fear is real for a large number of spiritual seekers. This is why so many prefer not to look at the dark side of things, fearing they won’t be able to hold on to the light in them. I met such people, who, in my opinion are only doing themselves disservice by closing their eyes to one half of their reality. We discussed how this works in The Energy is Shifting! Together, We Have Averted the Worst Outcome!
The actual solution is just the opposite: we need to DIVE deeply into the actual situation that causes us distress or trouble, be it internally or externally. This is why I spend so much time writing and speaking about the profound issues, bringing the most hidden secrets and predictions to light. The purpose is to help us all understand what and why is happening around us.
Let’s just say this is the opposite of muddying waters even further with sensationalist fantasies and conspiracy theories not based on true knowledge of circumstances (not to be confused with true conspiracies that do exist around us). When you understand the underlying issues behind any event or behavior, you will not look the same way at it ever again. Such deep understanding, which I usually explain on psychological, historic, geopolitical, karmic (cosmic) and mystical levels, will lead to compassion and forgiveness, which may in turn lead to exalting your Calibration (quantum energy vibration) to the levels of mastery and magic: LOVE and above.

For those spiritual people who believe that it’s possible to ascend in a small group, when Earth clones itself, while leaving the rest of the unascended humanity behind: this isn’t going to happen. Such belief is akin to the beliefs of some religious sects, who think they will be saved, while the rest of the sinners on the planet will go to hell (or stay in it, if you consider hell what’s going on on the planet today). This is the attitude of escapism. The process of Ascension is something our human world has to actively achieve together.
This is why people like myself are here to write and speak about it, in order to help those who are ready to understand the truth, make peace with it. This is called Wayshowing and people who do this are called Wayshowers.
All this is very important, and we’ll get to all the intricacies of it on this blog eventually. At this time, let’s get back to the issue forming an important part in understanding of what I have said above:
FEMINISM VS SACRED FEMININE – MALE CHAUVINISM VS SACRED MASCULINE
is the actualized in 3D enlightened side of the female nature: creative, nurturing, feminine. It has highly balanced yin-yang in a very productive way. Positive, happy, valuing others and herself highly; taking full responsiblity for resolving problems in her own life, but not rejecting help and support, in fact, asking for help and support when needed, while gratefully accepting it.
is the darker, and at times destructive, side of female nature; it is rebellious, angry, protesting – oftentimes rightfully so against injustices, but usually going too far in such protest, or putting the responsibility of such injustices on the wrong shoulders. It is oftentimes a backlash against the historic victimization of women, thus making women unduly masculine. It may accompany a certain gender confusion and it always represents one-sided or unbalanced yin-yang.
As always, the coin has two sides:
(alas, rare on our planet so far) is representative of a fully actualized in 3D enlightened male; this is a courageous, heroic, protective of all life and justice, nurturing and loving in a masculine way, self-sacrificing and yin-yang balanced side of the male nature. None of this has to be flashy, and it can manifest in the everyday reality in a very quiet and unassuming way. In my above-referenced video about Life Creating Calibrations – under Calibration 480-499: Humanity and Compassion – I give an example of a dashcam image of a Russian officer helping an old lady across the street. This, to me, is one of the manifestations of the Sacred Masculine in everyday life.
is the dark and yin-yang unbalanced side of the Masculine duality, based on fear, anger, ignorance and confusion of what this soul is doing on Earth. Survival fear gone berserk is at the root of the problem. Instead of being the guardian responsible for others, such person becomes oppressive or destructive, believing this is the only way to preserve his power, which to him is equated with his very survival. That primal unenlightened belief that it’s kill or be killed taken to the extreme, had caused terrible things to manifest in human history. Male chauvinism is destructive, angry, aggressive, arrogant and disregarding of anyone else’s interests, or life itself.
The interesting thing is that both manifestations of both genders are equally important and necessary, as they both reflect our today’s polarized 3D reality on Planet Earth – its light and dark sides. Another interesting thing is that we, as a human race must learn how to reconcile these differences, in order for this human civilization to survive and move forward.
While men and women do differ biologically and emotionally, it is crucial that we expand our consciousness to include the acceptance of another sex, another species and another point of view – fully, including its darker manifestations. This is the evolved approach.
How this works in practice: the Vibrational Ascension Process
The first step is having the COURAGE (calibration 200) to look the truth in the eye. The next is to be WILLING (calibration 310) to understand the underlying reasons for a certain type of behavior. This leads to ACCEPTANCE (calibration 350). Once you accept another’s point of view, it is important to analyze it in-depth and understand the truth, which is always multilayered, including physical, emotional, historic, societal, economic and geopolitical reasons (calibration 400 – reason). You can then proceed to the next step: FORGIVENESS and COMPASSION (calibration 480). Once compassion occurs, the very next step is the miracle of LOVE (calibration 500), JOY (calibration 540), CREATION (580) and PEACE (calibration 600).
All these wonderfully high calibrations completely dissolve any anger, hatred and destruction. I call the process I just described the Vibrational Ascension Process. It is part of my Quantum Calibration System. It applies to everything on our planet, including the relations between sexes.
How these differences developed
They developed historically due to biological differences between men and women: women gave birth, while men hunted. This division of labor, necessary in the olden days, gradually made men stronger physically. Eventually, historic processes took over. Women stayed home, tended to children, making them even weaker physically, while shrinking their entire world to the small space of their own home. In some societies, women never went out other than accompanied by men, and never exercised. It was in fact considered the sign of prosperity and royalty when a woman in a household could afford not to go out or do any work.
An example is the foot binding in China, which made female feet so tiny that the woman could hardly walk. The so called lotus feet were like little stubs – very ugly – but they were considered beautiful locally as they denoted the coveted life of leisure, therefore trumpeting to the whole world that the prideful man who could afford to OWN such woman, was truly rich.
Such distortions developed to varying degrees in various patriarchal societies based on Male Chauvinism, but equally reinforced by women perceiving themselves more and more as victims. The basis was the general understanding of a patriarchal society that a woman has to be weak and dumb.
In German it is expressed by the well-known 3K: Kinder, Küche, Kirche (German: [ˈkɪndɐ ˈkʏçə ˈkɪʁçə]) – “children, kitchen, church”. Granted, part of the reason for restrictions was to prevent defenceless women from being raped or kidnapped if they went out alone; yet, it was only protection from the standpoint of a woman being a man’s property. Therefore, protecting a woman from rape equaled protecting your property. Of course rape is one of the clear manifestations of the yin-yang unbalanced male chauvinism.
Incidentally, rape can only happen when there is a vibrational match between the perpetrator and a victim. In other words one side – the victim – vibrates at the level of victim, and another side – the perpetrator – however paradoxical it may sound, also vibrates at the level of a victim, albeit the violent one.
Male Chauvinism gradually developed from the times when males became hunters. They began bearing arms. This made them not only ‘bacon-bringers,’ but also protectors of the tribe against any invaders. Eventually, knowing how to use arms made males a threat to women themselves. Men could easily make any woman submit to their will, threatening her with arms, or with their bigger muscles. Later this discrepancy grew, as men became stronger physically, spent more and more time outdoors, thus gaining more physical strength, better health, and more life’s satisfaction. Men branched out to master various professions, conquered new worlds, and became leaders of society. Men’s world was expanding, while women’s world was contracting.
While we have biological differences, we are still the same species, with the same aspirations and ways of perceiving the world. Same things make us happy or sad, we need the same for our developement. What does it tell us when the 19th century’s celebrated author such as Jane Austen had to publish her novels as Anon, because it was believed that books written by a woman wouldn’t sell? What does this do to a person’s psyche? How does the young generation grow up knowing they will be locked up for life once they get married?
I’ll tell you more: should we still live in the same sad and gruesome world as described above, you would have never heard from me, and perhaps, you would have never known the truths I reveal through my writing. Just imagine how much duller and smaller our world would have been if we were deprived from so many beautiful and important things the actualized Sacred Feminine can bring to our lives.
The old patriarchal world had to go.
Here is how revolutions in our 3D world work: anything that is outmoded has to either leave peacefully, or it will be thrown out through violent change. When the 20th century brought us the rise in revolutionary changes of all sorts, the Russian revolutions being at the forefront, women’s rights also went to the forefront of such fight. International Women’s Day, March 8th, started out as women’s movement for equal rights and also against war. In Russia it grew into annual celebration of women, quickly becoming international. Women on most continents now celebrate March 8th as their holiday.
It has to be noted that USA was one of the last countries to recognize women’s equality.
When I first arrived in the US in 1990, I was shocked to hear stories by corporate women about how much discrimination exists in the work place. To me these stories seemed like a twilight zone. Although the USSR wasn’t perfect, in Russia there was no such discrimination. My mother made more than my father, had a bigger office and generally was more visible. It wasn’t the case everywhere, but Soviet society was very liberal and progressive – in a good sense.
At my first corporate US job a young colleague told me that she was the first female in her family to graduate college because before that it was considered a waste to educate women (and we are talking the end of the 20th century!); another older woman added that she was always very bright, but in her generation women could only become secretaries. That’s what she became. At her ripe age, she still was a secretary to our MALE boss. I listened to all that, my eyes wide. I simply couldn’t grasp why these women kept complaining; so it was like that before, but it isn’t so any more. Go ahead, change your life – become anyone you want. Yet, they still held on to their pain and steeped in their resentment. Mind you, the women I’d described were nothing like the rampant feminists Emil described in his comment. They really wanted to fit in and were law-abiding corporate slaves. But the above just demonstrates how deeply this resentment runs in Western society.
Sometimes it receives its outlet in the active denial of anything to do with being feminine, such as hating the color pink. It also becomes a denial of the other side of our yin-yang equation, men, while blaming men for any problems, past, present and future. But let’s not throw the baby out with bath water. All this notwithstanding, there are still legitimate situations in the world when it is necessary to speak up for women’s rights where they get abused. All the above is called feminism.
The West created the monster called feminism through its historic distortions and denial. This phenomenon hardly makes a dent in other parts of the world.
And it goes much further. For most of the 20th century for GEOPOLITICAL REASONS US and some other Western countries, such as Sweden, tried to suppress and deny to women March 8 as the official international women’s holiday. As we know, US still doesn’t recognize March 8, celebrating a ‘Mother’s day’ in may, which denotes domesticity as opposed to the Sacred Feminine balance. The same happened with another important international day: May 1, or May Day, considered throughout the world The Day of Workers (Labor Day). Both holidays were introduced by Russia/USSR. As the old Russian joke goes: To spite my enemy, I will kill my goat so my children would have no milk. This is exactly what USA has done by transferring labor day from May to September.
If you deny something exists, it won’t vanish. If you suppress something, it will eventually come out in ugly forms. That’s how feminism happened in the West. It was an angry and rebellious response to past injustices and the suppression of rights.
The reason there was no feminism in the USSR was this: USSR was the very first country in the world to afford women equal rights. In 1918 one of the first decrees by Lenin was to allow women equal voting rights. For years after, women were denied voting rights in the West. Moreover, the West had to start liberalizing women’s rights, allowing women to vote specifically because of Russia/USSR example. For the survival of their system, they couldn’t afford to seem less progressive than the USSR.
Therefore, feminism appeared and remains in societies, in which there are still a lot of unresolved historic and geopolitical issues relative to justice, equality and women’s rights.
It is important to also understand that human minds play awful tricks on us. In the 19th century England Luddites were destroying factory machines because they blamed machines for their disenfranchisement and impoverishment. They couldn’t understand that machines were just a tool in the hands of the few capitalists who exploited them. Some women see the sorry state of the world full of wars, conflict and injustice, and assume (only partially correctly) that men are behind it all. From thereon a faulty conclusion is made that men are the source of all evil. I have to say that Catholic church for centuries embedded in human psyche that women were the source of temptation and all evil (with all priests again being male).
Is it any surprise that there is a backlash against past and present injustices in the form of extreme feminism?
Male chauvinism is the opposite side of the same spectrum: it has developed not because of suppression. It is an unevolved, low-level-soul response to the fact that men were too free and were allowed too much. This is a response to the all-permissivenes of one class as opposed to another class. The unevolved among men would perceive that as a confirmation that they were superior compared to women, and therefore, they owned women.
Another two reasons for male chauvinism are: 1. primal survival fear gone berserk, as described above; 2. panic, confusion and feeling overwhelmed by taking responsibility, which creates a backlash in the form of lashing out and oppressing the very people a male is responsible for.
The evolved men would think just the opposite: that they are responsible for women and children, that it is on them that others rely for protection and support. They choose to give and serve, rather than take and abuse.
The times have changed; battles for the equality of the sexes seem to be a thing of the past. Yet, I still find with great surprise that old resentments die hard. All this moldy karma needs to be resolved.
The faster we as a human species understand that we are destined to find a sacred balance between two equally important parts of ourselves, one being yin and another yang, the sooner we will be able to move forward.
Below, we will explore the true mystical essence of the Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine. We will also look into the unique role of Russia in all this.
This vintage Soviet poster reads: March 8, Happy Holiday to our Moms
Let’s define yin and yang:
Yin is: female, nurturing, process-oriented, creating, continuing, cooperative, deliberate, wise, deep.
Yang is: male, forward-looking, result-oriented, assertive, light, fire, aggressive, initiating, fast, superficial.
Sacred Feminine constitutes the highest and most harmonious manifestation of the yin on our planet. But it’s not just any yin. It’s the fully self-aware and balanced yin, the one that confidently and organically incorporates just enough yang to be complete and harmonious.
The two definitions that come to mind when thinking about Sacred Feminine are: 1. integrity and 2. effortless royalty. This will manifest in a woman no matter what she does and what she looks like. Incidentally, the same two definitions are true equally for the actualized Sacred Masculine, and again, it has nothing to do with looks, but rather deeds and general energy.
Personal issues may range from a childhood trauma by some women who grew up in an abusive patriarchal household, to dissatisfaction with own life. In either case, it is a reaction to the ills of society, albeit immature and misguided.
Again, what I am describing isn’t the same as protesting the legitimate injustices of our world, which are plenty, and raising your voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves.
Feminism, as described by Emil, is the case of a pendulum swinging too far to the side of patriarchy, and subsequently, as a consequence – too far to the opposite side. Confrontational approach towards March 8th by some embattled feminists in the US or Sweden will never make this into a holiday to celebrate, but rather into an unplesant day to forget. I personally haven’t met such angry feminists, but if they do exist, they only hurt their cause.
By contrast, my post Dear Women! Happy International Women’s Day!, as well as my approach to March 8 calibrates on the level of 580 (high creation/joy) with Chi of 510 (love). Knowing all that, everyone in the world can make a choice – to follow the light… or to stay in the darkness.
The idea is NOT to pit the two genders against each other. Instead of constant nonsensical conflict, we need to move to the future in which both genders are treated as equals and are equally respected not only as humans, but for their unique contribution to society. Both males and females have their own, unique and precious gifts to give. Males are more yang and females are more yin. It is in the unity of both, creating the fully evolved and fully manifest yin-yang union, that we as humanity have a future.
Our 3D reality is built as a contrast, but simultaneously as a dream of re-uniting our yin and yang powers.
We as humanity now have an absolutely unique opportunity to reconcile the two parts of the whole. I often talk about the yin and yang nations and parts of the world. See more in PREDICTIONS. When we all work productively together, when all various cultures’ contributions are appreciated, we can move to the new, very promising era for humanity.
Globally speaking, men and women are already reconciling their differences and work productively together on the levels from home and family, to work and society in general.
Mutual blame game won’t help. I personally have zero problems with either gender, as my readers, who are equally male and female would attest. However, looking around, I see that not everyone is like that. Just like in situations when different countries have to extend a hand and listen to each other in order to create peace, males and females have to do the same.
As someone who regularly makes predictions that have a habit of coming true, I can tell you that this is the only way for humanity to move forward. If humanity fails to create a cooperative society on all levels, it may signify the end of the human experiment as we know it (consider this a warning and a blueprint for action).
Incidentally, as my readers know, per my Earth Shift system, Russia is the global historic and karmic balancer and the only fully manifest yin-yang culture on the planet. But that unique culture was almost destroyed in 1990s, when Russia went through the painful dismantling of the USSR and robber baron privatization and when people were left without jobs. Males started drinking themselves to death, thus weakening the male/yang energy of the country. Females, whose yin energy life creation requires a strong man with whom to have children and who would provide security, stopped giving birth. Many women also started looking for husbands abroad, creating the ‘Russian mail order bride’ phenomenon.
When Putin came to power, Russia quickly grew out of that period, which lasted a mere 8-10 years. What happened in the ’90s is all but a memory now. Russian society has already rebalanced itself and the common to the Russian world yin-yang harmony has been restored. However, in Ukraine, Moldova and some other republics the period of drastic crisis and change is only now maturing, denoting big shake-ups in present and future. You all know my prediction for these changes in Moldova and Ukraine.
Therefore, when the country experiences a distortion and crisis, both men and women start displaying distorted behavior. Back to Emil’s observation about Sweden. Sorry, Emil and my other Nordic readers, but Sweden, along with other Nordic countries is at a very difficult crisis threshold. Sweden is impacted the most. It is evident in how people behave on many levels. Sweden should get ready for some nasty shocks in the next 5-10 years.
When sacred feminine is actualized in the earthly 3D realm, the woman becomes a goddess. She is perceived as a goddess, regardless of her appearance, because this is the light she emanates from within and the beauty she shares with the world. She can be an admired public figure with an important message, or a mother – or both.
Examples of the actualized Sacred Feminine (these are some people who come to my mind – you may think of different examples):
1. Dr. Sahra Vagenknecht, German politician, co-chair of the Die Linke party. On FT I gave examples of her passionate, but well-argumented speeches in Bundestag to oppose Angela Merkel’s policies.
2. Michele Knight, popular astrologer from the UK, lovingly takes care of a large number of animals on her farm, from donkeys and horses, to parrots, peacocks and dogs. Looks don’t matter – energy does. Michele is very large and beautiful. She had a difficult and abusive childhood, which is the case with most earth angels. Despite that, she rose to create a dream life for herself, preserving her cheerful and loving nature.
3. Doreen Virtue, accomplished spiritual author, speaker and business woman, used to be a single mother of 3, now happily married, adopted a large number of shelter animals. I mentioned her in my Calibrations videos.
3. Elena Isinbaeva, one of the world’s most accomplished athletes, multiple Olympic and world gold medalist, 7-time world record holder and model. Also one of my Calibration videos examples. Elena Isinbayeva rocks the Russian anthem (Russian anthem rock-style by Nikolay Rastorguev and Lyube)
5. Valentina Tereshkova, first woman cosmonaut, First Woman in Space (1963). On takeoff, she famously said: ‘Hey, the Sky, take off your hat.’
Examples of the actualized unified Sacred Feminine & Sacred Masculine (like before, you may think of entirely different examples, but this is what comes to my mind)
6. Lyudmila Zykina, her son Yulian and the Russian Army Choir performing Mother and Son (by Pachmutova and her husband, poet Dobronravov)
Song was written in late 90s especially for the great Russian singer Zykina and her son, who embody all the passion, love, talent and trials Russia had gone through. It seemed at the time that all was lost, but the song boldly proclaimed a spiritual, truly yin-yang-balanced hope and faith. It is the song of awakening and prophecy.
It’s beautiful and dramatic as everything larger than life Zykina and Yulian tended to sing. Alas, found no half-decent translation of this song, so I’ve decided to translate the refrain myself, to give you all some idea.
The land of our ancestors, save our faith.
The only way to live is by taking the truth in with our every breath.
With us always are the Mother and Son and the Sacred Soul – the holy trinity of the eternal Rus.
Only the temple of the ultimate truth with stand the test of time –
We will return to our source,
And for as long as Russia is alive, we are destined to sing and cry together.
And for as long as Russia is alive, we are destined to sing and cry together.
2. Alexandra Pakhmutova – called “the woman, whom people sing.” Tiny, less than 5 foot tall, one of the most famous composers of the USSR and Russia’s most celebrated song writer of the past 50 years. I give a lot of examples of her songs in my awesome Soviet Songs compilation: Raising Chi Against Hatred: The Suppressed Story of Russian Songs that Unite World Cultures. Bubbly, very approachable, happily married to the life-time partner in song writing, lyricist Dobronravov. This tiny woman and her other half, managed together to express in their songs the hopes and dreams of several generations of Russians.
Check out the unlikely looks of this goddess of song and her divine creations in the beginning of this documentary.
Gorgeous song by Pakhmutova and Dobronravov The Russian Waltz. Also performed by Yulian. The whole composition is a poetic representation of the yin-yang unity and balance. The actualized Sacred Feminine-Masculine unity in song and dance:
3. I have noticed that the subscription to FuturisTrendcast is half men and half women. This is how you know if the Sacred Feminine has been actualized in its most balanced form. It is always a spectacular balance between the yin (feminine) and yang (masculine), visible in the energy of a person. Both men and women are drawn toward such energy.
