Russia: Men go to great lengths to make her smile on International Women’s Day

Every year between March 6 and 9, Russia turns into a huge and fragrant flower market. It smells like spring everywhere, even if the stubborn snow has neglected to melt just yet.

 

Remember my previous post: Happy March 8! Russian policeman stops vehicles to sing a love song to women drivers.

In that case it wasn’t an actual cop but Russian singer Yaroslav Sumishevsky, with his song. However, real policemen aren’t far behind. This is happening today in Kaliningrad, Russia. Actual traffic policemen stop women drivers to present them with flowers and March 8 gifts:

 

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!

Putin congratulates First Woman in Space

Just before the International Women’s Day on March 8, Putin presented with flowers and gifts the First Woman in Space, Valentina Tereshkova, who has turned 80 on March 6.

I also found it interesting that Putin gave Tereshkova as a gift a statue of Chaika, in other words, a seagul. Chaika was her callsign.

It’s also interesting that Tereshkova’s 1963 Vostok-6 maiden flight was kept a complete secret and even her parents had no idea where she was. They learned what their 26-year-old daughter was really up to from TV, together with the rest of the world, upon her return.

Valentina Tereshkova remains in great physical shape despite her age. Speaking about the proposed Russian expedition to Mars, she pointed out her absolute readiness to go to Mars on moment’s notice. Ever a pioneer and researcher, this fascinating woman has been proposing this for years: she’s been trying to convince authorities to dispatch her to the ISS, as well as to deep space in order to test how the aging human body would respond.

Watch till the end for unique 1963 footage!

 

P.S. No sooner did I publish this post that I got attacked by a troll on Twitter, who told me that ‘no man, woman, nor monkey ever flew into space because God’s earth is flat.’ And he was a follower of mine.
So we are absolutely clear, of course that person’s limited world is FLAT – no surprise there.

My world is holographic and multidimensional.

Happy March 8! Russian policeman stops vehicles to sing a love song to women drivers

The International Women’s Day on March 8 is approaching. To me it has always been a light, smiley and happy holiday. Those who know me have probably read my posts about March 8, its history and lore, and how it’s celebrated in Russia and the USSR. Those who are visual, I’m sure you’ll enjoy all those awesome spring pics. I’ll have the article links below.

This year, I’ve decided to post this charming episode.

In the run-up to the March 8 holiday, in a Moscow suburb, a traffic cop has been seen stopping women drivers. When asked what the purpose of the detention was, he would say, ‘I’m Traffic Inspector Yaroslav Sumishevsky. Just checking drivers licenses as part of the operation My Beloved Woman. Have you heard about it?’ After the drivers replied in the negative, he would begin singing a song, My Beloved Woman, and present each female driver with a rose. On the video below watch women’s faces alight with smiles, and also watch the kids’ reaction.

This unusual flash mob happened during the February 23, 2017 holiday. I thought it was lovely to tie the two holidays together in one event.

To digress a bit into history and lore: February 23 was previously called the Day of the Soviet Army, and is presently called The Day of the Defender (or Protector) of the Fatherland.  On this day, big concerts and other celebrations are held in Moscow and all over Russia. Commemorative events take place and flowers are brought to the Monuments of the Unknown Soldier or Sailor. February 23, The Day of the Defender of the Fatherland, is celebrated equally widely all over post-Soviet space and some other countries. Even in countries which are not exactly pro-Russian on this day people come to lay flowers to monuments to Soviet and Russian soldiers. All over post-Soviet space people still give gifts to men, hold rallies and lavish free concerts on this day. This is one of those holidays that is refusing to go away, uniting people of different views, ethnicities and races, no matter how much a particular country’s elite tries to erase it. This happens even in today’s fascist Ukraine, despite prosecution and violence.

February 23 is widely celebrated in Russia and beyond as a general Men’s Day, since in Russia men at large are encouraged to become protectors – gentlemen-knights, if you will – of the motherland. Russians really love balance and justice. For balance, if all women have their day, all men should have a proper holiday as well, right? Gifts are given to men on February 23 regardless of age, and in turn, gifts and lots of flowers are given to women on March 8.

Now back to our Moscow gentleman cop. A couple of drivers asked the man in the uniform why he looked so familiar, to which he replied, ‘All of us GAI (Russian Traffic Police) inspectors look alike.’ Only one person recognized who he really was…

And the clincher? It was a well-known Russian singer Yaroslav Sumishevsky, with his song, My Beloved Woman.

The video below is in Russian, but I think my explanation is sufficient to allow you to follow. Watch women’s reactions. In the end one of the women, who never recognized him, asked if he was at this post often. “I will make it a point to drive through here often, just to say hello to you,” said the lady.

And what a promo for the Russian Traffic Police!

Watch and may it put a smile on your face!

HAPPY MARCH 8, DEAR WOMEN!

MARCH 8 TREAT IS COMING!

For March 8 I’m preparing a real treat for you all, my male and female followers and readers alike! In the post to come I’ll combine the Women’s Day essence with two of the most popular questions I’ve ever received:

1. Forbidden vs. True History

AND

2. The mystery of Lada and her name. 

Stay tuned!

Feminism vs. Sacred Feminine – Male Chauvinism vs. Sacred Masculine

earth_angel

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 

“Dear Lada, Thank you for reminding me that Women’s Day can and should be something positive!
Sadly in Sweden it is not. Sweden, next to the US, is probably the country worst poisoned by distorted feminism! Swedish society is slowly being destroyed by feminists fighting against men! Every day in the newspaper there is at least one article about how women are being mistreated by, raped or beaten by, or discriminated against by men or by the system! There is almost never a word about the difficulties facing males. Obviously International Men’s Day is unknown in Sweden, as according to Swedish feminists every day is “Men’s Day”!
Having a Thai wife, and one foot in Thailand, some aspects of Swedish society are becoming unbearable to me.
Well, Lada, enough of negativity from my part! Maybe you have some interesting thoughts about western distorted feminism?”

The importance of understanding and making peace with 3D issues

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

SACRED FEMININE

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.

FEMINISM

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:

SACRED MASCULINE

(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.

MALE CHAUVINISM

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.

Feminism vs. Sacred Feminine

Let’s just get something very straight: there is a galaxy of difference between ‘Sacred Feminine” and ”Western feminism.” In fact they are opposites not just in form, but also in energetic vibration and spiritual essence. The Sacred Feminine is the exalted, high energetically and spiritually, manifestation of the female energy. It is the receptive and open energy of the nurturing Mother Earth,  its beauty, love and understanding. It is the energy of creation, manifestation and cooperation.

MARCH 8 as a holiday celebrating the contemporary version of the Sacred Feminine

To me personally, International Women’s Day on March 8 embodies the contemporary, assertive and sovereign side of the Sacred Feminine. If we are talking specifically that holiday, it is about a working, socially active woman, but the kind of woman that doesn’t forget her feminine side, who can successfully balance work and home, work and play, work and sexy beauty. It’s also about women as mothers, wives, companions. It’s also about the young maidens, who are just starting to discover what it’s about to be a woman. It is so important for the young women to receive a healthy right of passage, which will give them dignity and foundation to be true to themselves for the rest of their life. (As opposed to that, the imbalanced situation in Sweden, described in Emil’s comment, destroys the fragile psyche of young women, causing huge harm. Those who grow up in such environment will become the lost generation.)

A woman I described above may look like this, Soviet style (from the March 8 vintage Soviet poster)

In Russia, on March 8, men usually take on all the chores and allow women to relax, treating them as goddesses. I can tell you that it sets the psyche of both young girls and young boys in the right direction, giving them correct foundation of how to live their lives, as they observe their mothers and grandmothers treated with such respect, as they see their mothers showered with attention. Later these boys grow up to be that officer who was helping the old lady across the street. The young girls also receive flowers, often from their brothers, or other boys. They also get lavished with treats. At least that was the case in my day. I hope Russians never lose the sense of how to properly celebrate this holiday.

HOLIDAYS

This vintage Soviet poster reads: March 8, Happy Holiday to our Moms

This kind of celebration imprints on the consciousness of individual people and entire cultures. This is a healthy way of celebrating women’s day.

FEBRUARY 23 and the forgotten Sacred Masculine

On the other hand, since we are talking contemporary holidays, the day that is traditionally celebrated in Russia as Men’s Day is February 23, called officially the Day of the Defender of the Fatherland (formerly, the Day of the Soviet Army). As seen from the name, this day initially started as a holiday for the military and anyone who at any point had served in the army. Very quickly during Soviet times it transformed into the countrywide Men’s Day (now celebrated as such in the entire Russian world, including Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, All of Central Asia; Mongolia, believe it or not; and yes – Ukraine as well).

Tri Bogatiria

The Russian tradition of the protector of the motherland is thousands of years old.

THE THREE BOGATYRS – famous painting by 19th century artist Viktor Vasnetsov, 

depicting the 10th century mythical Russian knights (Bogatyrs) Dobrynya Nikitich, Ilya MurometsAlyosha Popovich

Russia’s karmic role on our Planet Earth is to be the Great Balancer. Therefore, everything Russians do will always lead, or strive, to balancing itself.  These two holidays are that kind of example. If there was only a Women’s Day, men would feel left out. Therefore, Men’s Day was necessary to balance it out. Since in Russia being a defender of the Motherland (Fatherland) was always considered the most important male duty, and practically all men were subject to draft or served at one point in the army, it was logical to unite the two in one. On February 23rd all men, even little boys, usually receive presents from women.

Russians celebrate both holidays lavishly, with lots of concerts, including the official Kremlin, Red Square and the Poklonnaya Gora events; parties, flowers, gifts and fireworks.

Having two holidays, one following another, establishes a wise balance, where no one in society feels left out and everyone has a sense of belonging. At the same time, it prevents the Western lopsidedness Emil is talking about, when one group is always in the news, while the rest feel neglected and maligned.

To me, the biggest achievement of the Russian holidays such as February 23 and March 8 is this: it celebrates the suppressed by human society Sacred Yin and Yang. While March 8 is about SACRED FENININE, February 23 encourages and reminds us about the forgotten and denied SACRED MASCULINE on our planet.

Oh no, Russians don’t use these words, they don’t call their holidays the ‘celebration of the sacred this or that.’ Do you know why? Because they don’t need to intellectualize it – they simply live it. To them it’s not something to achieve or debate – it exists as a natural and logical part of their lives.

It’s in the West that we intellectualize everything. Do you know why? Because we don’t have it in our lives, and therefore, crave it.

Among many other things, Russia is here to teach us how to naturally integrate that coveted balance between yin and yang, that unattainable, it appears for those who live in the West, seamless blend of the Sacred Feminine and Masculine.

The topic of the Sacred Masculine requires a separate discussion. But do you know what Sacred Masculine looks like? There are three most prominent features I always think of. These are:

1. Man as the ultimate protector of life and love, be it his country, the innocent, the weak, the voiceless, or the higher good. The mythical Bogatyrs (or Vytiaz’s) as depicted on the painting above, represent these ultimate protectors.

2. Man as a courageous truthteller, even if it requires self-sacrifice on his part. The medieval scientist Copernicus comes to mind, who was ready to burn, but held on to his truth.

3. At the same time, Sacred Masculine to me is ALWAYS and without exception, a respectful and very tender and protective attitude towards women, as well as animals and Mother Earth. Men who do not respect women can never achieve the mastery that is Sacred Masculine. For example, the theme of a compassionate and gentle to all life hero is very prominent in ancient Russian fairytales.

Similarly, women who do not respect men, are also far and away from the Sacred Feminine.

I have given the example of a contemporary Sacred Masculine manifested in the Russian policeman, who recently threw his car at the incoming vehicle to protect the nine busses full of children from an imminent collision. See post: Russian hero cop rams into incoming car to save children’s lives.

Another manifestation of the Sacred Masculine is Eldad Hagar, a man from  LA, who daily gets into sewers to rescue abandoned and scared dogs, for whom he finds loving homes. I sometimes tweet and post videos of his rescues on Lada Ray Blog. Here are a few of them.

To me, some of the other examples of the manifest Sacred Masculine are: Julian Assange and the truthtellers/whistleblowers of this world; Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR, Donbass, Novorossia) Alexandr Zakharchenko, in whom both the protective Bogatyr and the truthteller sides have manifested. A very similar example is the former Mayor of Sevastopol and one of the men behind the Sevastopol/Crimea uprising against the Kiev junta: Valery Chaliy. Chaliy is a successful electronics entrepreneur, who personally financed alternative school books during Ukraine ‘occupation,’ which ensured that Crimean children didn’t succumb to Soros anti-Russian propaganda. When Vladimir Putin announced that Crimea was officially part of the Russian Federation, this man, who spent 23 years trying to preserve local heritage, who headed the peaceful Sevastopol uprising and referendum, stood on stage next to Putin and cried for all to see.

Some of the other manifestations of the Sacred Masculine are two Russian politicians: Vladimir Putin and Sergey Lavrov.

Alexandr Zakharchenko

Alexandr Zakharchenko, first head of DNR

Calibrations always add much more clarity to the issue and put things in perspective:

Alexandr Zakharchenko, DNR head: calibration 410 – reason, Chi 285 – neutrality/friendliness

Valery Chaliy, Sevastopol head: calibration 400 – reason, Chi 489 – humanity/compassion

Sergey Lavrov, Russian FM: calibration 580 – high creation, Chi 400 – reason

Sacred Feminine

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.

I’m sure any man met such women. They are attractive and sexy without any visible effort. They don’t need to impose themselves on others. Both men and women hang on their every word or applaud their actions. They emanate the air of confidence without being pushy or confrontational. They can compete when necessary, but with grace, and they are most happy cooperating. They can achieve great success, but without forgetting to stop along the way to smell the roses. They can have families and still manage to have a great career, fame, visibility, or whatever lifestyle they choose. They take responsibility, they don’t complain and they don’t blame others for their problems.

Such woman is a sovereign individual. However, these are usually also women who can have balanced and happy marriages, if they choose to marry.

What’s interesting is that some men get scared of the power such women hold. That is because some men are afraid (rightly so) that they are not a match for them. Certainly, this is a man’s own insecurity talking. A smart and aware man, if something like this should happen, will look deep inside to see what’s causing this fear and insecurity. The idea is always to look deep within. That’s where you’ll find your answers.

Men who are fully in touch with their inner world and who are well-adjusted in the outer world, will be drawn to such women on a variety of levels, from romantic to intellectual, friendly, cooperative, etc.

Similarly, such women, especially when young, tend to draw a lot jealousy from other unevolved women, regardless of who they are and regardless of how well-to-do they are or aren’t. Eventually, such women’s deeds and accomplishments start speaking for themselves, and any jealousy is replaced with admiration.

To me, this is how Sacred Feminine is manifesting today in our society. The women I just described are usually very far from what in the West are called ‘feminists.’

Feminism

It’s not by accident that it was born in the West. Just like any distortion, angry feminism has nothing to do with reality and is just a knee-jerk reaction of a small part of women to unresolved personal and societal issues. Fear and Anger are the basis for that: calibrations 100 and 150.

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.

Refrain:

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.

Dear Women! Happy International Women’s Day!

Reblogged from Lada Ray Blog:

tulips 7

There are lots of beautiful holidays in the world. March 8 is one of my personal favorites. To me it’s associated with spring, smiles, and the intoxicating fragrance of tulips, delicate bells of the lily of the valley and sweetness of the mimosa flowers.

On March 8 the world celebrates the International Women’s Day. This holiday started over 100 years ago in Russia as a celebration of women’s rights and anti-war movement. Years later it became popular the world over as a holiday for women of all ages, when mothers, wives and daughters can kick back and allow themselves to be treated as pampered goddesses, letting men do the chores, bring them flowers, lavish them with massages and tickets to sold-out shows.

Find out how this holiday is celebrated in Russia and beyond from my eternally popular piece on Lada Ray Blog, combining history, reflections, memories and rare images: March 8, Happy International Women’s Day! (Note, as the International Women’s Day has been maligned and misinterpreted terribly in the US and some other Western countries, I highly recommend you read the above piece. It will put lots of things in perspective. Also read comments, in which people from various countries relay their experiences.)

To me, March 8 is the contemporary way of honoring the sacred feminine. But first and foremost, this is the holiday of the awakening of spring and the celebration of beauty and peace.

I don’t know about you, but on March 8, my house will be full of my favorite tulips, despite the dreary cold and snow piles outside. Too bad lily of the valley isn’t available in North America. But who is to say we can’t have a virtual March 8 celebration right here, on my blog!

Dear women,

I am wishing you lots of joy and flowers, love and beauty, and happy smiles this spring and always. 

More than anything, I wish you PEACE. I wish you inner peace and strength to be yourself in all that life presents to you. Shine your light, love and understanding – today, the world needs it more than ever.

I also wish peace to your home, especially, if you live in an area stricken by a gruesome war. 

Dear women, please enjoy all the flowers in the world!
