38247527Women, Meditation, and Power

Genre: Non-Fiction/ Women’s Studies

Publication Date: January 7, 2020 (New Edition)

Women are the power species on the planet. Why? Because life force or kundalini flows through women more strongly than in men. The primary aspect of the female person is power. The primary aspect of the male person is love and humility. Somewhere back in time, the roles got switched.

Men in charge have unwittingly created a heavy, inflexible power structure that lurches towards destruction. Now is the time for the woman in all of us to up-end the confusion, unravel the deep-rooted lines of misunderstanding, and make it right.

MY REVIEW:

3.5 rating
Women Meditation and Power isn’t exactly what I thought it would be going in. When I first saw the cover and read the blurb I practically jumped up and down with excitement… ready to dive in at the first chance I got. I’m a regular meditator, and believe very profoundly in the strength of spirituality, and individualism as a woman. I also have a real soft spot for self help books. Anything that looks unique and promising for growth – both as a woman and as a human in general – that I’ve yet to read elsewhere, isn’t something that I take lightly.
Liz Lewinson has a real way with words. There are a few scenes here and there that paint such a gorgeous picture. I’d be really interested in reading anything fictional that she might ever decide to put together, that is IF she decides to write anything of such nature. The way she words things is absolutely beautiful.
As for the content as a whole, I was a little hit and miss. Some of the meditation practice techniques are helpful, and deep rooted, definitely worth indulging in. There are some quite interesting and powerful ways to look at growth and spirituality as a potentially powerhouse woman, as we all have the inner workings for. These things alone, to me, make the whole book worth reading.
There is also a lot of opinion as far as politics and women in position of power is concerned that is stamped as fact, and quite a bit of it I didn’t really agree with. I also felt like there is a lot of opinion based stuff that lump all men as one way and all women as another. Some of those opinions made complete sense to me, and some just didn’t quite settle right. There’s a lot of stuff revolving around repression and oppression in society, again stamped as fact, that I have my own strong view of, that didn’t line up exactly paralleled to Liz’s view. Which is perfectly fine, as this book was still very lovely.
A special thanks to the author as well as Reads and Reels for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

Excerpt

Lewinson WMP Quote Twitter 1

Women are the power species on planet Earth. We are the leaders, the strategists, the negotiators, the collaborators, the seers, the matriarchs. We are naturally excellent at experiencing inner stillness—the ultimate nexus and balancing center of life power.

Women today are rising from thousands of years of repression. Women are shattering glass ceilings and previous perceptions of what women can and should accomplish. The women shattering glass ceilings are those who find a way to express their power and energy, fighting to achieve this all the way. They bring a peerless power and energy to their tasks.

The adolescent girls of today are the leaders of tomorrow. But if their education is neglected, if they are given inappropriate knowledge about their own abilities and potential, then the results are disastrous for the planet. Girls in so-called liberated nations often face a crisis in their teen years. It’s when being sexually and physically attractive to boys or other girls often trumps becoming educated and powerful.

Westernized teens, with all that built-in energy and power that come with a strong, young nervous system, often weaken it with destructive and unfulfilling sex, bullying, violence, drugs, and overfocus on what others are doing instead of building confidence in self. The result is a long confusion period, especially for women, in which it takes years to regain the state of energy and assuredness that was lost in the teen years. Some women never regain it and instead make poor choices that burden them for the rest of their lives.

Regaining or understanding for the first time their full, unlimited power is, for most women, a journey of identifying and overcoming past restraints.
