Approximately 1600 years ago, there came a turning point for women. The first Christian Roman Emperor, Constantine, wanted to spread Christianity worldwide. To do this, he formed the Council of Nicaea. At this council, many changes were made to the teachings of Jesus Christ, as well as to the role women played. Much was lost. As time passed, women with holy mystical powers were demonized, and later burned at the stake, thus diminishing the role of women in our society and our spirituality.
In the last 100+ years, The Divine Feminine Energy of God has made itself more prevalent than ever. Some very powerful women have blessed us with their presence and allowed us to see the Feminine Energy of God through them. Here are just a few:
Mother Frances Cabrini (1850-1917). She is credited with many miracles while she was on the earth and even after her passing, miracles were attributed to her.
Then there was Therese Neumann (1898-1962), a Catholic mystic, stigmatist and miracle women from Germany, who transformed her remarkable sufferings into means of helping and healing others.
Mother Maria Skobtsova (1891-1945), a Russian socialist intellectual who later sacrificed herself to help Russians and Jews in Paris during the 1930s and 1940s, courageously died a martyr’s death in the Nazi concentration camps on behalf of her fellow inmates.
Hazrat Babajan (? – 1931), was an Afghani Muslim princess in her youth, but left home to trek through India, where she studied from Muslim and Hindu teachers. She lived in solitude and later gained renown as a Sufi sage and enigmatic wonder-worker of tremendous blessing force. When she died in 1931, she was alleged to be 130 or even 140 years old.
Anandamayi Ma (1892-1982), known as the “Blissful Mother” and guru to gurus, was an illustrious mystic and sage who was hailed as a Divine Incarnation. Her mother had a number of auspicious dreams of gods and goddesses before Ma’s birth; a sign usually indicating the presence of an imminent mahatma (Great Soul). The infant Ma did not cry at birth and throughout her childhood was remarkably serene. It is said that nobody could fail to understand her, for she addressed herself to all as if they were at the same level as children of God.
This list is by no means all-inclusive. Next week, more remarkable stories of remarkable women.
