Someone in our Level 2 program asked me this question. It is a very good one that has been asked many times, sometimes with a charge, and sometimes simply with curiosity.
Many Archangels and Masters appear with names such Metatron, Uriel Michael, Kuthumi and El Morya. These are all masculine sounding names and are often accompanied by male images in the books in which they are mentioned. However, they are not only of a male energy. The countenance humans have assigned them is male because that is what we could relate to at the time. In other words, these huge, dynamic beings of light have a masculine expression because, until now, that's all humans could accept. Let me explain:
At the time of the Fall of Consciousness, it was necessary to create an energetic field or structure to hold and prevent the Earth from falling into a complete elimination. That structure became known as the third dimension, and it was very dense, conditional and rigid. To guide the Earth back into its intended brilliance, a very powerful aspect of Creator known as the Divine Feminine was brought to the Earth and to Her inhabitants. You see, before the Fall of Consciousness, Earth was a very rarified consciousness of Light, not the physical form you know it as today.
The Divine Feminine’s guidance took on the role of the matriarch. Its purpose was very clear and focused, yet it operated within the very rigid and fear-based structure of the third dimension. The Divine Feminine’s purpose was the survival of Earth and humanity.
At the time, those in female form ruled, protected, and helped humanity to survive. It was a matriarchal global culture for a very long time. The focus was on the continuation of life. And while this goal was accomplished, the global culture that survived was very much out of balance with regard to the masculine nature. As the matriarchal domination, rigidity, rules and control continued, the masculine could tolerate no more and eventually rose up, revolted, protested, and took their power. The tables turned and the global culture shifted from female dominated to male dominated. Of course, there are still the rare subcultures on the planet today that are of a matriarchal nature.
In that transition into patriarchy there was third dimensional resentment, resistance, anger and retaliation. The patriarchy took command and the feminine was dominated and subjugated. When great beings such as Yeshua and Buddha came to the planet, they had to speak through male forms and with a masculine point of view because of the male domination of the culture and society. The family and culture did what the males demanded. Businesses were run by men. The religions and educational systems were also dominated by the patriarchy. Look at the Middle East today; it hasn't changed much. Countries such as Egypt and Turkey are going through tremendous change and they are all of a male dominated energy. I once asked Yeshua, “Why did you say ‘I and the Father are one.’ Why not the Mother?” He explained that at the time he walked the Earth that was the only way he could be heard. On your path, you probably have seen illustrations of the Ascended Masters. Most are men—white men.
My partner, Roxane has a phrase for this, “The Harry Potter Syndrome.” She heard an interview with J.K. Rowling awhile back. Apparently, the main character of that book series was originally a girl but when Rowling took the manuscript to publishers, they strongly suggested she change the character into a boy. She was told the books would sell better that way. Girls could relate to stories about boys, but boys couldn’t relate to stories where the protagonist was a girl.
And it isn’t just the men and boys who have, until now, been unready to embrace a balanced, strong, female character. Many women have felt safer hiding behind their men, giving their seniority over to the masculine energy and not stepping up to create their own dreams. Or they may have gone in the opposite direction and rejected anything male. Many have even had the habit of blaming the male when their plans fall through.
This is now changing. As the critical mass of balanced feminine and masculine creative energy is restored in both men and women, and personal power is taken back into our own lives, we will see non-gendered images of these beings of light.
The Masters and Archangels are neither male nor female. They are gendered only because of our limitations. You walk beside these great beings of light who love you beyond your wildest imagination. They are your friends and co-creators. They can only accomplish their plans if each one of us steps up to the plate too. Only those with a human body can place the final puzzle pieces into this grand creation. These beings are thrilled because you came here and said, “I will change this.” And it was the big ones who stepped up and said, “Send me!” And here you are.
You will be astonished as you learn the tools to step into some of these balanced energies, and remember how to merge with your Soul, creating a balanced masculine and feminine energetic form. You are easing into that space very rapidly, and you will be thrilled as you start to realize who you are.
