Am going to stick my neck out here on a controversial subject. It makes me feel very uncomfortable as I prefer to stay away from the media AND drama. However, something landed so hard this morning and it wouldn’t go away. I literally feel compelled to write!
Most of us are aware that the World is run by a highly toxic, patriarchal system and what that has done to everyday men and women, to our communities, our family dynamics and society over the Centuries. The Age of Aquarius is asking millions of women all over the World to heal the Mother Wound, the Witch Wound, the generational and ancestral wounds, so that the divine feminine can rise and rebalance our World in a better way that serves everyone, not just a select few in ivory towers.
What came through intuitively this morning is how the current system is now doing it’s best to spread their toxicity to the rising matriarchy ~ a passing of the baton so to speak. I can see the tendrils of poisonous energy that are moving through society and it’s not only frightening ~ the woman in me is shouting HELL NO!!!! We need a HEALTHY and well balanced society going forwards. I, for one, have had enough of the conflict, separation, division and toxicity in men OR women that is currently running rampant. It HAS to stop!
So here goes and please hear me out to the end……. as there is a fine line between toxic Patriarchy and toxic Matriarchy!
I have tried very hard to ignore the media coverage in the UK surrounding Russell Brand. However, seeing the number of women that are calling for the blood of a man they do not know and have never met…… based purely on a television program and some ‘news’ articles…… makes me feel ill.
These very same women are outraged by the fact that our female ancestors were hunted down and burned at the stake due to the fear and ignorance of a toxic patriarchy. This created the Witch Wound that still runs through generations today as those witch-hunts murdered 1000s of wives and mothers, permanently destroying families and communities across the UK .
Ohhhhhhhh how easily the ‘witch-hunted’ now become the hunters. What makes the women baying for Russell Brand’s blood any different to those men from centuries ago? They’re basing their opinions on the words of others, are unaware of the law or police procedure and are forming a mob mentality to destroy a man ~ when there isn’t even enough hard evidence to arrest, let alone charge him or the police would already have done so!
In my humble opinion, this is insanity and toxicity that is on a par with what men did to women in the 1600s ~ only this is worse, as it’s the modern day version and hasn’t history taught us anything?
Are women not aware that it’s on us to show the World a different way to be after centuries of toxic, patriarchal greed, control, division and fear? Right now, the media and Channel 4 (who are owned by the patriarchy) are enraging and goading women all over the World to attack, judge and condemn men ~ based only on stories! The patriarchy KNOWS it is losing its grip on society and so now, they’ve set their sights on women and are turning them into the men we’ve spent 100s of years trying to hold to account for endless atrocities against us. If we’re not careful, toxic patriarchy will soon become toxic matriarchy and as women, we become no better than the men we’ve lamented for centuries.
As a sexual & domestic abuse victim (ie. am not a sympathiser of sexual predators or wounded men who don’t take responsibility for themselves) AND ex paralegal ~ I do NOT believe in trial by social media or television. In truth, NONE OF US KNOWS whether this man is guilty or not as we do not know him or the women who are accusing him. Personally, as a Sovereign woman, I prefer NOT to be emotionally manipulated by the patriarchy that owns & controls the media.
What I do know, through experience, is when a case is sensationalised like this, it means there isn’t any hard evidence available ~ despite what the telly says. If there has been a deep investigation going on for three years (according to the Channel 4 program), there should be enough evidence by now. Yet there has been no arrest or charge. This is the UK, not America. The judicial system may be corrupt and sometimes, the police can be incompetent ~ yet they are duty bound to investigate if a crime is reported. Yes, some women are sadly failed by the system and it is notoriously hard to bring a rape allegation to trial ~ however, the fact still remains that people report crimes to the police, not newspapers.
On a practical note, if there were enough evidence, this case would not be plastered all over the media as it would influence potential jurors, making it impossible to gain an impartial judgement. If there were enough evidence, they wouldn’t need to find or wait for any other women to come forward as only one case, that is proven beyond a reasonable doubt, is needed for a conviction.
You’ll never hear about a definitive sexual abuse case until after it has been through court. Everything is kept quiet and protected to ensure the case doesn’t get thrown out on technicalities that come about due to information being leaked.
I’ve seen men who’s families and careers have been destroyed by false allegations and despite my own abuse experienced at the hands of wounded men, would NEVER want to see that happen to anyone. I want the truth and irrefutable evidence that leads to a solid prosecution. If, after three years of ‘investigation’, they don’t have enough evidence to even arrest this man, let alone charge him, what does that say?
If they can provide such evidence, by all means, throw the book at him. If not, they’ve just destroyed a man’s entire life and career for nothing and that is not OK.
Women being emotionally manipulated by the media into becoming the very thing they have fought against for 100s of years is NOT OK! Witch-hunt/man-hunt, there is no difference ~ it’s an ugly, mob mentality bent on destroying people on the hearsay of others. It’s why we have a legal system, as corrupt as it is, as we cannot condemn people to death ~ or in modern culture as we’re more ‘civilised’ now ~ ‘cancel’ them based on stories.
I’ve met women whom have taken payment from the media (one to to the tune of £20k!) to show up in a certain way and tell a highly embellished story. So anyone thinking a woman would never do that, please think again. If it’s a choice between an acting role and big pay-out that feeds the kids and puts a roof over their head or signing on for government handouts, absolutely there are many people out there who would take the money and play the part. As Shakespeare wisely said ‘All the World is a stage and all the men and women merely players’.
There are also women whom have suffered horrific abuse at the hands of men that have been silenced or had to fight tooth and nail to get their time in court. The system is corrupt and broken ~ yet for the moment, it’s all we have and some form of procedure has to be followed or it could be your father, brother, husband, son or male friend who is being accused next. How would you feel if they were destroyed and ‘cancelled’ with no proper judicial procedure? If it were the 1600s, would you feel OK watching them burn at the stake or being drowned?
Am not a fan of Russell Brand or any celebrity. I have no idea if he is innocent or guilty, so am remaining neutral until further evidence comes to light and the proper police and then criminal procedures are carried out.
I am, however, a fan of truth, of justice and of empowering women to become self aware enough NOT to be manipulated by the patriarchal media any more! We need to learn from the past. We MUST DO BETTER than the men who came before us or in my humble opinion, we’re going to end up in a far worse place than we are now.
With Brightest of Blessings
