Let’s love men

man-alone

A male friend commented on a recent post I did on “One Billion Rising” – a movement acting to stop and raise awareness on violence against women and girls – saying that he HATES MEN. Through an emoticon he then expressed his sadness about the behavior of (some) men. This is my answer:

Beautiful friend, please LOVE MEN and thus – love yourself. I do as well, as much as I can, more and more every day. I honor and cherish every man who has the courage to dive into their emotions and other spaces that has been just as prohibited for them as, for example, political power has been for women in our history.

So many men are exposed to violence every day, most often (even if not always), men are and have been the vast majority of soldiers in every war since at least 6000 years. On top of that, they have been, and – globally – often still are, kept from having deep and meaningful relationships with their children.

More than often, men have also carried the role of enforcing our strange laws and cultural habits, themselves forced by social contracts and the pressure to provide food, shelter, money – not for only themselves but also for their families, tribes, wider community, country… How often have not priests, lawyers, kings, knights, noblemen, politicians, chiefs, husbands, fathers been (felt…) forced to act against their own hearts, against their inner child, against their intuition – against the very things that make us human – to do their job.

Men also suffer greatly under expectations. We often talk about how many roles a modern woman is expected to fulfill – what about the men? There are expectations on them to be that strong warrior, the gentleman (but not too much, it can be considered provocative), have a well trained body, have a well-paid job that preferably also should be exiting and impressive, travel (preferably to exiting places doing smth dangerous) AND take care of their children, spend a lot of time with their significant other, etc etc.

I could go on but I am tired…. (I wrote this just before going to sleep).

But I wanted to write this, to myself and to you, to just say – lets LOVE MEN. Lets forgive and forget. Lets release our old stories and write new ones. Lets discover – beneath our stories and cultural interpretations – what it really means to be a man and what it means to be a woman.

I think that the disrespect and aggression that some men show towards women, as well as their own children, only mirrors their inner pain and the aggression and disrespect that they are shown and have been exposed to themselves.

I deeply honor all the amazing men in my life, so many of which are in a deep, courageous, conscious and heartfelt process of healing their patterns and themselves. You are one of them.

Love yourself 🙂 ❀
Big hug!

(The text above was written after One Billion Rising 2016, just found it today as a “memory” reminder generated by Facebook. Below a quote from a good article about men and feelings.)

“Just because men aren’t adept at expressing their feelings, don’t for a minute think they don’t feel, and feel deeply. Many times, men express their feelings using a secret code—a code that even they can’t decipher.

Men may convert one feeling into another. Men may convert stereotypically feminine feelings, such as sadness or vulnerability, into feelings like anger or pride—feelings more socially acceptable for them to experience.”

En Saga: Drakarnas fĂ€rd över RegnbĂ„gshavet

en_saga_facebook.jpg
EN SAGA Àr i grund och botten en berÀttelse om hur vi lever för att möta och Àlska varandra. Den föddes som en kort historia pÄ Ätta meningar, vilka fortfarande utgör Sagans grundstomme. Inspirerad av vÄrt eviga sökande efter mening, syfte och sammanhang, samt allt ifrÄn andra sagor till teoretisk fysik, har Sagan vuxit till ett aldrig sinande Àventyr som kan berÀttas pÄ en mÀngd olika sÀtt pÄ allt ifrÄn frÄn tvÄ minuter till flera timmar. Den kan vara underhÄllande, sorgsam, djup och berörande, den utvecklas hela tiden och den har aldrig berÀttats pÄ samma sÀtt tvÄ gÄnger.
InnehĂ„llet i Sagan improviseras, men jag kan redan avslöja att temat vid detta tillfĂ€lle kommer att vara Drakarnas fĂ€rd över Skapelsens RegnbĂ„gshav

Åldersrekommendation: 10 – 111 Ă„r
Ditt bidrag: 150 – 300 kronor
SprĂ„k: Oftast berĂ€ttar jag Sagan pĂ„ engelska, men denna gĂ„ng blir det svenska. Men om gruppen vill och det kĂ€nns rĂ€tt sĂ„ kör vi pĂ„ engelska 🙂
 
BLOM MEDITATION
Vi börjar och avslutar eftermiddagen med en Blom Mediation, en metod som jag erhöll i en vision efter 10 Ärs arbete med frÄgan:
Hur hanterar man projektioner och ovÀlkomna energier med minsta möjliga anstrÀngning?
Igenom Blom Mediationen planterar vi vackra, kraftfulla flerdimensionella blommor som tar hand om arbetet med detta och mycket annat Ă„t dig…
SHAMANSKT BERÄTTANDE
KĂ€rnan i shamanskt arbete Ă€r befrielsen det som ibland kallas “the assemblage point” – en punkt i din energikropp dĂ€r uppmĂ€rksamheten Ă€r samlad, och dĂ€r information samlas och fördelas. NĂ€r denna punkt blir flytande börjar vi verkligen leva. I chakra mediation förknippar man detta med aktivering av det 8e chakrat, vilket ibland beskrivs som ett chakra utan en fast punkt, ett slags quantum chakra. Oavsett beskrivning och placering handlar det om att aktivera kommunikationen med ens flerdimensionella jag, dansa lĂ€ngs och igenom medvetandets olika tillstĂ„nd – att expandera det egna jaget samtidigt som man blir mer och mer ett “hollow bone” – ett öppen kanal för anden att flöda igenom.
Verktyg för att uppnĂ„ detta varierar, men avgörande Ă€r rekapitulation av berĂ€ttelser, befrielsen av sinnet, lĂ€kning av hjĂ€rtat samt underlĂ€ttande av sann förbindelse. Shamansk berĂ€ttande tr med det inre barnet pĂ„ en resa igenom tid och rum, inspirerar fantasi och insikt, förbinder sjĂ€l och sinne samt öppnar för nĂ€rande, kĂ€rleksfull energi att flöda igenom ditt varas helhet…
En Saga öppnar vÀgar till uppleva shamanskt berÀttande och helande pÄ ett mjukt och humoristiskt sÀtt. Den kombinerar improvisation och magi inom en fast ram som har vuxit fram ur en kombination av samtida tÀnkesÀtt och tidlös visdom. Sagans form överbygger dessa tankesÀtt med det som Àr bortom ord, samt lÄter varje deltagare vara en del av dess innehÄll. Genom att anpassa sig till varje grupp aktiverar Sagan Àven gruppintelligensen, vilket underlÀttar multidimensionellt utbyte och individuell frigörelse.
