Healing came for me as I integrated images of a strong, powerful, compassionate Feminine Being, one who was creating the universe, creating Herself, birthing new life, and holding everything in being. For me this was the most significant factor in creating a restoration of feminine value, dignity, and power inside—seeing female as imago dei, the image of the Divine, revealed now through women just as it had been revealed all these centuries through men. It was the return of my feminine birthright.
