The Grandmothers explain why they have come.
“With culture so long dominated by Yang, the principle of masculine energy, Yin, the principle of feminine energy, has become deficient and weak. Woman is cut off from her own sense of power and purpose, which comprise her beauty, and feeling this lack, she seeks outer confirmation of her identity and worth. Women spend inordinate amounts of time and money in order to be confirmed from without.
“No matter how many “confirmation” of her beauty, her power and purpose, she receives, yet she feels the lack. This is because feminine energy cannot be conferred from the outside. Yin is. It exists for its own sake. Seeking it will only confuse the seeker.
“In order to confirm woman from within herself and awaken man to the comforting presence within himself, the Great Council of the Grandmothers has come. Each Grandmother is unique in her power and being and yet all are as One in this purpose-to restore Yin, the feminine energy, to full beauty/power so the world may once again come into balance. We will empower women and comfort men, awakening them both to the feminine principle.”
