The Ancient Gender Wounds Part 2: Atlantis


The Ancient Gender Wounds Part 2: Atlantis

The Story of the Abuse of Power in Atlantis (Wisdom/Consciousness)

Listen to these stories on Anaiya’s “Wounds of Love” album

Once upon a time there was an ancient land called Atlantis, a place of elegance, evolution and creative abundance. Where a group of highly advanced souls were beginning to radically exploring the boundaries of human understanding. Atlantis was fast becoming a place that was renown for its evolved and highly sophisticated free-thinkers who were on the edge of cutting edge discovery and experimental breakthroughs.


It was a time in earth’s history when the energies were naturally moving into a more masculine polarity.  However, for humankind this would be the first time that they experienced had one of these earthly cycles.  Little did they know that the shift from one polarity to the other was a natural and harmonious wave of energy that contained the opportunity to know and embody the Divine Masculine principles. In other words, to know the Truth of God and the laws of His universe.


Within Atlantis those that leaned more towards the masculine principle (both men and women) were entering a phase of development that was truly unchartered. There seemed to be a tremendous evolutionary spirit soaring through the fields of science, math’s and both the universal and biological laws of creation.


The groups involved in these pursuits seemed to almost be consumed with a spiritual fire that began to sustain them from the inside. There was almost no need to sleep, eat or do anything else, as their passion for radical thinking and experimentation was all that they lived for.  It was as if they had tapped into a new power that the rest of Atlantis had yet to discover.


As time passed this hunger for more and more wild experimentation took root. However, outside these circles there was this growing concern that the experiments and explorations were ungrounded and fears that there was no responsible authority guiding or over-seeing the work. From within the main scientific groups, radical offshoots were springing up in an attempt to take the experimentation to the next quantum level.  Often without permission these groups would simply take it upon themselves to fund and oversee their work until it came into full fruition. Doubts and fears were beginning to arouse from within the greater communities of Atlantis.  People were beginning to gather behind closed doors as they whispered their concerns and feelings of unease. The people wanted to know what exactly was going on within the walls of these ‘laboratories’, where no one seemed to be overseeing the progress of these now highly secretive groups.


The feminine principle in Atlantis, the people who worked with the land and found their spirituality within the elements of nature, began to look upon the masculine principle with a sense of dread and foreboding. They noticed how these people were abandoning their love for the earth and discarding their nature based spirituality for what they were calling a new form of spirituality – science.  These scientists were declaring that they were listening to the voice of God and that they had become his spokespeople, and that the old ways of spirituality were everyone was equal and able to speak and listen to God, no longer existed.


“God can no longer be found within nature. God, can now only be found within science.  It is God that is leading this experimentation. He has appointed us as his Priests to speak and act on his behalf” was the voice of the masculine.


These radical free thinkers were introducing a new form of spirituality and for the first time in human history, the idea of a spiritual hierarchy on earth was born. This new religion stated that God no longer could be accessed through the ‘old ways’ and that if you wanted to connect with him, you would have to go through a priest of Atlantis (masculine principle).


This was shocking and unnerving news to the rest of Atlantis.  It brought about a great deal of unrest and immediate divide between the masculine and feminine principles.  There was a growing distrust and yet rampant fear, as the very essence of the feminine principle was being questioned at a fundamental level. Those that carried the feminine principle within their hearts were being challenged to prove the need or place for the existence of the feminine in this brave new world that was being born.


It was a frightening time.  Dark clouds were beginning to gather, as the masculine principle began to reach distorted and destructive levels of power. Refusing to listen to the growing concerns of the people, the masculine turned his back and returned to his work, where he now admitted in many ways, he was playing God.


Rumors spread like wild fire through the streets and homes of Atlantis. There were stories of how mutant babies were being born that were half human and half animal, and how they were attempting to bend the laws of nature to produce a fifth element.  There was also talk of a brand new power being created that was being produced as a result of creating mini black holes and then exploding them.


This news created a deep-seated fear within the feminine, as she knew these types of experimentation should not be happening. This was acutely dangerous and had the power to destroy the whole of Atlantis and maybe even the entire earth. And yet, when it came to voicing her opinion she found that the evidence and clever calculating responses from the masculine undermined and humiliated her concerns.


“You know nothing about this woman, this does not concern you.  You are no longer needed, we have grown beyond your understandings and your power is obsolete. Go back to your house, and refrain from attempting to question our authority.  You have no voice here”.


She was not only ignored but ridiculed.  This open mockery left her feeling powerless and without expression.  She attempted again and again to look for ways into the heart of the masculine, with the hope that he would see sense and stop his misuse of power. The more she came forward the stronger and more arrogant he became. Over time She became silenced and in many ways seen as infertile, menopausal and not needed anymore.  Only a handful of people stayed true to the feminine and kept her ways alive, as for the majority of people in Atlantis they foolishly believed all that was being told to them, and gave their power away to the new priests of this new scientific god.


This handful of people powerlessly looked on, totally unable to speak out their concerns, as there was no one around who was willing to listen to them.  The people of Atlantis had become blind to the power that was manipulating them, imagining it to be this glorious new evolutionary spirit that promised the earth in more ways than one.  The feminine principle could see the distortion and the corruption but was unable to do anything about it, while the masculine basked in his own egoic glory.


The feminine principle sank to an all time low while the masculine spirit lifted to dizzying and macabre new heights. Atlantis was fast becoming a circus, a spectacle of twisted and wretched abuses of power and manipulation. This once glorious land had become a hotbed of corruption and arrogance.  A land of self appointed demi-gods that had developed a blood lust for their own glory.



For the healing and transformation of this soul wound, it is important to enter into the story and feel how it touches and unfolds inside of you.  This wound lives within the boundaries of the mind (consciousness) in both men and women. It is the guardian that stands before you, suggesting the need and desire to ‘protect yourself’ from the abuse of power from the masculine principle. It is important to remember that men can feel this wound if their woman has a strong masculine side.  As you move towards full conscious union, this will be the main wound that resurfaces. There will be a myriad of reasons, of why it’s wise to protect yourself, to not share your inner world, to not ‘give the whole truth’.  Be aware that the flavor of this wound orbits around distrust, suspicion, the inability to speak out or confront obvious corruption and distortion.  The feeling that it is only you that can see the truth and that everyone else is either blind or in denial. Fear of authority and/or a strong aggressive masculine energy are the ramifications of this wound.


These wounds from the abuse of power, and feminine dis-empowerment are still painfully alive today.  With this story of the original cause, we are being given the keys to heal this injury at its root and creation, so that the waves of healing have the ability to travel both forward into the present day and back into the past, to the root cause.
