Aleut Native Elder Larry Merculieff speaks in this 15-minute video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en4TKmldjrM on bringing back the sacred feminine. He describes how the tribal women would dance on the outside of the circle forming for sacred work in order to move the Cosmic Womb Energy present in their wombs into the center of the circle, so the formation work could be done to go into the future in a good way.
He also talks about the Stillness and its role in the sacred creation work. In the Stillness, there is no thought or emotion, and it is there where you make a decision with your whole being. In the Stillness, we become aware of subtle energies or patterns. He wondered who would make the masks, as all their Aleut mask makers were gone. He brought this question into the Stillness, and with his whole being intention seeking an answer, he received images of masks in his mind. He asked a elder in his tribe, and the elder said that he had come into consciousness of the Cosmic Womb. It is the cauldron where creation is “cooked” into manifestation.
We need a balancing in our world. We each have belly button to remind us of our umbilical connection through our mother, her mother, and her mother’s mother back to the original Mama. How were we ever satisfied with referring to God as he, when nature shows us that all species require the feminine, she. We did through belief of male priestly authorities instead of trusting our direct experience.
We can see how far away we are from truth by noticing that more women in the USA were killed through domestic violence of their husbands than the total women killed in the USA wars against Iraq and Afghanistan during the same period of time.
Remember your navel. Are you grateful you have one? Remember your mother, are you grateful for her. Remember the Mother of all the Cosmos. Enter into the great fullness of her to continue birthing creation.
