Fierce Feminine Rising

Heal from Predatory Relationships and Recenter Your Personal Power

A guide for embodying the courage of the Fierce Feminine, or Dark Mother, to heal yourself and the world at large

  • Describes how to embody the Sacred Rage of the Fierce Feminine and channel the universal outrage collectively rising in many of us to seek justice for those who can't defend themselves
  • Details constructive energetic and spiritual practices to help heal from predatory relationships and traumatic experiences, recenter your personal power, and gain control of your Sacred Rage rather than allowing it to control you
  • Explains how to gain access to primordial female wisdom within the brain, embrace your Inner Kali, and personally deal with sorrow and anger

After millennia of suppression, the Fierce Feminine, or Dark Mother, is making a dramatic resurgence to express our universal outrage. She is rising collectively now, and many women—and men—are feeling a welling up of Sacred Rage inside, a calling to set things right in our own lives and seek justice for those who can't defend themselves.

Offering much-needed perspective, advice, and tools for channeling the righteous energy and Sacred Rage of the Divine Feminine, Anaiya Sophia explains how to distinguish the Fierce Feminine from personal anger and reveals how it is not a feminist movement set to publically condemn all that is masculine, but a collective spiritual uprising for the greater good of humanity. She shares constructive practices drawn from Eastern tradition to help you embody the courage of the Fierce Feminine to heal from predatory relationships and traumatic experiences, recenter your personal power, and gain control of your Sacred Rage rather than allowing it to control you. She details sacred sexuality exercises, including those with a yoni egg to clear the womb after love-making and dispel any energetic imprint left by an ex-partner. She provides instructions to gain access to the primordial wisdom within the untapped portion of the female brain, embrace your Inner Kali, and personally deal with sorrow and anger.

Through this passionate step-by-step guide to comfort your spiritual anguish and dispel the helplessness of not knowing what to do, Anaiya Sophia encourages those who feel the call of the Fierce Feminine to embrace their sacred mission and allow it to rebalance the powers that govern the planet, as well as harmonize our minds. When we allow the justice of the Fierce Feminine to flow within us, we each become an active participant in the embodiment of change.

Never has such a book been so necessary or so timely for an endangered species–humanity. Our planet and all life on Earth are in peril. Why? Because we have fallen under the illusion of a set of values that have nothing to do with the truth. We have separated ourselves from nature, from our intuition, and from trusting our own hearts, allowing ourselves to be carried away on a current of patriarchal values that pretend they are for our own good. Now the voice of truth is screaming to be heard, and if we do not listen, we will become extinct.
    In blazing terms, Anaiya Sophia describes the cultural overlay of misogynistic beliefs that have etched damaging patterns into our view of who we are. As a species, we are sick. We have fouled our own backyards, we kill without remorse, and we are infused with false beliefs that lead to a continual competition in and for everything–even love. The belief systems that haunt us have been seeded within us by what the author calls the Dark Agenda, a power of patriarchal control that completely and totally dismisses anything of feminine value. Patriarchal contamination is endemic; we have lost the ability to see the truth or to think for ourselves, thereby giving all of our power to the in-humane machine of greed and control that governs every aspect of our lives.
    As Anaiya Sophia speaks of the Dark Agenda and the blood cartel that dominate the world economy, we can see how they have pirated our very souls. Even the spirituality so many of us embrace is full of false and narcissistic teachers and harmful ideas that lead to feelings of entitlement or specialness–a type of separation that only divides us more, allowing the Dark Agenda to more easily conquer and control us. Will we continue to allow this small group of manipulators to lull us to sleep with their lies, carrying us into the oblivion of the unawakened? Will we allow the digital technology that has been thrust upon us to steal our spirituality, our sense of cooperation, our natural abundance, or our very souls? Or will we learn to listen to the inner voice that calls us to remember our connection to one another, leading us to expel the competitive vigilance for survival that pressures our every waking moment and tortures our dreams? Will we accept our own extinction, or will we allow the Fierce Feminine to flush the contamination of the patriarchy from our minds?  It takes courage to do the right thing, for as the author points out, by speaking the truth, we will be challenging the core beliefs of everyone around us.
    Explaining the falsities we have been fed by the Dark Agenda as spiritual truth, Anaiya Sophia exposes the lies by explaining just how such themes as "we are all one" and "it's all love" have deeper underlying meanings that must be faced and included for us to completely comprehend reality. She explains that we have been led to believe that we are facing the light, while we are actually searching for the light in abysmal darkness. But that does not mean light is not available; it is waiting for us to turn around and face it. We hold the real truth in our own hearts, and we can access it by listening to (not discounting) our intuition, for our intuition is aligned with nature and the larger cosmic reality.
    Calling for integrity, accountability, and honor, (and I would add transparency), the feminine force as described by Anaiya Sopha invites us to annihilate our shared enemy of the Dark Agenda through fierce love for ourselves, for each other, and for our planet. We can no longer keep pace with an artificial sense of time and duties that have nothing to do with the natural world. The journey we must take is daunting, but less so when we realize that the hurdles we must cross are in our mind. Anaiya Sophia provides a step-by-step guideline in the last of her thirteen (a potent energy I recognize in my own work) chapters for regaining our courage and choosing actions to clear us from past traumas and take the responsible and necessary steps to move forward into a balanced world. This may, perhaps, be one of the most important books ever written. It most certainly is a necessary read for all–women and men–who wish to deeply enter reality, change themselves, and help to create a better world.

An Excerpt

Chapter 1.
What Is the Fierce Feminine
(and What Is Not)?

Allowing the Fierce, Fierce Feminine to have Her voice creates a lot of waves and surprises! We must realize that by speaking Her voice we will be challenging the core of those around us. The Fierce, Fierce Feminine has this ability to get past defenses and strike at the nervous systems of those holding old positions of power or false goodness. Like a powerful young horse who has been released from the quiet confines of the paddock, we must give Her her head. We must let Her go - speak freely, chose wisely, act steadfastly, and initiate the things we never would have dreamt of doing before.

But how do we know if this is the Divine Will of the Fierce, Fierce Feminine, and not our own personal anger looking for a fight? Well, I believe there’s a hallmark; a clear and easy to spot situation that marks Her good works as Her own. When we speak and act on behalf of the Fierce, Fierce Feminine it will most likely have nothing to do with our own personal gain. The situation and the reason why we’re speaking out will be on behalf of those who cannot. I believe it to be that clean of an energy. And should we find ourselves in a place that requires defense and protection of our own Light, it will be because that position defends others - many, many others at the same time.

When we allow the justice of the Fierce Feminine to flow within us, we will feel it in our hearts that we're doing the right thing. There will be a buoyant upsurge of courageous goodness, like a victory cry that rallies tremendous resources and resilience. When She speaks it feels clean and triumphant. There’s no venom, no vitriol, and no rhetoric. When you let go, there is no argument, no fight, and no conflict – there is only Truth. There may be a denial of that Truth, but the usual ways that humans solve their differences, via fighting, does not happen. The Fierce Feminine does not enter the fight. She is working on and in realms where physical brawling is a thing of the past.

In the times I have allowed the Fierce Feminine to rise, She has put me in contact with a third and unknown power, that is neither good nor bad. It just is. This part of me can see all sides of the situation quickly. Even before everyone has stated their positions, it’s clear to me who stands where. I can see the bullshit, the tactics deployed, the lies, the hidden emotion and a sense of what’s not being said. Without thought, a swift and direct action, voice or response emerges. The narrow window of possible outcomes from my own narrative on life melts down in surrender as a brilliant flash of response is born.

This enlivening experience of an altered state of reality restores and recalibrates when we give of ourselves on Her behalf. And that is the Truth. We take a Leap of Faith on Her behalf, and simultaneously, She powers Herself through our being birthing within us a wholly new operating system.

As exciting and wonderful as this sounds, we will most likely get met by resistance and angry accusations from those that we challenge. This is to be expected, so there is no need to worry. All we do is ground ourselves in Her beingness and do our best not to take any of it personally. We must remember, it’s not so much a person that opposes us, but a system, a heavy, deeply enmeshed dense way of living alongside old values, old beliefs, and old ideas. That’s what we’re challenging and that’s why there will be tremendous resistance. But if we know that in advance, we will be prepared and ready for it.


Sacred Action

Come into a comfortable lying down position with your feet flopped open and your palms face up. Take this time to disengage with the exterior world, leaving behind all your worries, daily concerns, and thoughts and feelings concerning others. Come into yourself. Use your breath to transport your awareness from out there, to inside yourself. Feel your familiar inner space and rest there awhile in the dark warmth of your sovereign being.

Start to see the natural world, the animal kingdom, the flora and fauna, the rivers, mountains, forests and deserts. Feel the goodness of life and the innocent and delicate ways we depend on one another. Now, see the matrix. The artificial world of control, fear, otherworldly influences, war and oppression. See how the matrix attempts to overlay the natural world, dimming the beauty of life from our vision. Coercing us into a world of impossible goals, unmet expectations and a complete inability to open, trust and connect.

What does She the Fierce, Fierce Feminine have to say about that?

Should you allow this in, what next step could you take to fully contribute on behalf of Her authentic voice? What deep wisdom rests in your bones? What daring new dimension could you operate on? What innovative and fresh new territory could you guide others into? How else, what else could come through you?

Remember, Her way is not to oppose the Dark Agenda, but to bring it into balance with nature.

Once you have seen your next new step you must write it down, better still, speak it to another (or record your own voice speaking Her words). Don't discard it or forget what you have been shown. This glimpse is between you and Her and has been revealed by your own wisdom. She has prepared and opened your evolution and will bring you every resource needed along the way.

And that is the Truth.

There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
