The Wild & Untamed Temptress: The 21st Century Woman & Her Power

0_67c5c_cb10ec91_XL

As time continues on and change remains as life’s only constant, it is more and more evident that the feminine energy of the world is being unleashed.  A very strong femininity that dominates and controls through her innate power of intuition and her mantra of “heart over mind”.

It seems to me as if many, many women around the world are connecting back to a deeper side of themselves.  Some may call it a “dark side”, but it has more to do with ancient feminine wisdom.  Special secrets and orders that tap into another realm of womanhood, that has been suppressed for hundreds and thousands of years.  Certain taboos, if you will, that the masses have been involuntarily ignorant of, due to the rewriting of history and faulty social constructs.

From Beyonce’s recent performance at the 2014 Video Music Awards show to her latest album, having more of a sexual and gritty overtone compared to her previous work.  Or even Nicki Minaj’s overt mandates of what kind of man she wants in her lyrics, to your average woman in everyday life searching and trying to figure out how to express herself in all aspects and facets of her true nature.  I see it happening, everywhere, and it certainly makes you sit back and ponder; What does it mean to be a woman in the 21st century?

And we all love sex, right?  Then why is it a problem when a woman wants to express herself in a forthcoming way?  Or maybe, even in a subtle way;  we have come to consciously accept the theory that a woman’s sexuality is her own, as long as she “controls it” or puts some kind of cap on it.  Fuck that.  Those days are O-V-E-R.  And men WILL deal, the church WILL deal, the government and media will certainly have to deal with this surge of carefreeness that women are learning to step into and flow with.  Especially those, whom innately are meant to live in such a passionate and instinctively driven manner.

In conclusion, it’s all about balance.  If things were truly in a Ying and Yang form within society, everyone’s lives would be a lot easier and people would be much more happier.  That is why this hot, sexual and over-bearing energy is beginning to rise.  Everything that appears on the surface is a reflection of something deep within.  Women have had enough.  Generations before us had enough, and now, it is time to own and hone our nature as beautiful, feminine goddesses and tenacious warriors.

There is no need to feel threatened, prideful or angered.  It’s just in a woman’s nature to always know how to stir the pot and get what she wants.  And it’s all in the name of love.

Love and Relationships According to Eartha Kitt

    “I [want to] fall in love with myself, and I want someone to share it with me.
I want someone to share me…..  with me.”

I saw a clip from Ms. Kitt’s 1982, All By Myself, bio-documentary a couple of years ago with my sister.  And since then, I had totally forgotten about it.  It was not until recently that I went onto Tumblr and saw some of the quotes from this clip being re-posted that I instinctively remembered it.  Quotes that related to Eartha’s views on being in love and sharing your love in a relationship.  And I find every one of her replies that she rebuttals back to the interviewer concerning this topic to be very mysterious, yet consciously penetrating, because I understand where she is coming from.

For years, I always thought that love was more about compromising some of yourself and sacrificing old habits and ways in order to coexist in a well-balanced relationship with another person.  And to a certain extent, I still do believe that.  But to hear Ms. Kitt say that she does not believe that to be true at all, kind of blew me back.  But her reasoning for disagreeing made purr-fect sense.

And although, I do understand how some people may interpret what she is saying to be slightly self-centered and ego-tripish, but she really isn’t trying to sound that way at all.  From what she stated, I find that she believes more in being in love with who you are first and knowing yourself.  And when you become comfortable enough with yourself, then you will find someone who can share that freedom with you; the freedom of self-acceptance and self-love.  And when you have mastered that, then you will find someone who will understand that power and want to share that experience…as they have mastered loving themself, too.

I mean, forreal, 4real….. Eartha drops some jewels in this video.  You just really have to open up your ears, intellect and heart in order to really understand what she is saying.  Ms. Kitt was SO deep…. As deep as love.

P.S. Don’t you just love how dramatic, she was?  It’s no surprise that I would name this blog after one of her many one-liners.  Miss her much!

What are your thoughts on love and compromise?
Do you agree or disagree with Eartha’s point of view?
