The Holding

The most ancient form of Sacred Feminine Prayer is Holding…and it is what the world most needs from us today as we awaken our true potential and balance.

–Reverend Misa

Remembering The Holding

Holding is the most ancient form of feminine-based prayer, and yet, few of us understand how to do it, and even fewer of us understand its power.

It is both the practice and energy of the Sacred Feminine. In its essence “Holding” holds everything (good, bad, wonderful and terrible) with unconditional love and without intention. In the experience of unconditional, or all-accepting love, we remember our original intent—to be the experience of love expressing itself, and we are born anew in that loving intention.

Guided MeditationHolding trusts that you and I were perfectly created and if you return to awareness that you are loved just as you are, you will be reborn in the light of that awareness once again.

You Hold in such a way that your emotions are actually doorways to spiritual freedom.

By Holding in love we offer Creation a gift from our feminine essence–a gift that has the power to transform the pain of this world into its potential for healing and peace!

This Holding guided meditation was lost for over 100 years and was given to Reverend Misa to give to all of us at this time. Here, you can learn more about how this meditation practice was awakened.

The Guided Meditation

healing, love, compassionFind a quiet moment. Turn off the phone, the TV, the stereo, and commit to not answering the door. This your time—your sacred time. Tell the children, your spouse, or your room-mate to leave you undisturbed for a while. You have sacred work to do.

You might want to light a candle or place a bowl of water near you, but most of all, what you need most is your solitude.

Breathe gently and sweetly, accepting the nourishment of the air, the day, or Spirit—whatever fills you with peace. Breathe into the space between your breaths and your thoughts.

Remember some moment in your life when you felt love and allow yourself to be that feeling of love from head to toe. Let it fill the space of you.

Then focus on your energetic womb (both women and men). Allow all your attention to connect to the womb within you. Feel/know/sense/see/hear its darkness, its vastness, its sacred nature, and its ability to enfold all possibilities in love and compassion.

Guided Meditation Allow your awareness (do not force this, but rather allow) to bring you something you feel limited about. Perhaps it is a fear you have, a concern or doubt, or a feeling that is uncomfortable for you. Be present to that limit in the sacredness of your womb.

Do not try to fix or change it for that would dishonor the wisdom that lives within the limit. Simply be with the feeling of this limit. As you hold it, feel your compassion swell within you, just as you would feel compassion for a child who was struggling with her or his limits. Simply be in compassion. Do nothing, except be with it.

Guided MeditationIt will, in its own time, transform into a peaceful freedom. It might transform the first time you hold the limit in this way. It might take several or many times, but it will transform—on its own—in the presence of your compassion.

Remember, your womb and the primordial sacred womb of life are one. Go to your womb and there see/sense the belief that limits you. Hold it, forgive it, love it within your womb so that it can die a peaceful death.

Here you can read about some of the miracles people have experienced using The Holding.

The Nature of your yin Energy

sacred feminineThe Sacred Feminine, or yin, energy is the spacious stillness that lives within each one of us. From this dark, womb-like space all life was born—the first sound and the first ray of white light—the Sacred Masculine expressing itself from the desire to know itself.

The Feminine is the limitless potential of our existence. We experience that potential through our intuition, creativity and compassion. Our emotions, if we attend to them, lead us back to the silence where we can be reborn in compassion and intuitive wisdom, able to express our creativity from the root of limitless love.

    I just wanted to thank you for putting what I have sensed about this sacred holding into words. I have been on an inner journey for a while and healed myself from a persistent illness (anorexia). In looking at my own journey, I also became aware of the power of holding. I continue to practice and share. I just wanted to thank you for your sharing. With love — Laurie

      Laurie, Holding is indeed in our DNA, isn’t it? It is part of our ancient wisdom being born anew for our healing and our awakening. It has been my privilege to put into words the deep and sacred work of this beautiful energy awakening within us once again. Thank you for your lovely acknowledgment. -Misa

    I was recently guided to “find” your work again and have been journeying with your Holding guided meditation. It is a most sacred and whole journey. I feel I am beginning to find my sacred feminine and birth my sacred and Divine I AM of Joy. I am most grateful to you Misa. Thank you.
