Encountering Lilith: Empowerment Through Meditation

Throughout history, Lilith has emerged as a goddess, a demoness, and a symbol of rebellion against the constraints of the patriarchy. Her story transcends time, weaving through cultures and civilizations, always embodying the essence of fierce empowerment.

She is not a passive figure. She is the embodiment of the Divine Feminine in its rawest form. She defied societal norms, refused to be subservient, and chose freedom over conformity. Lilith’s story is a testament to the unyielding spirit of those who have faced oppression and injustice, and it serves as an enduring source of inspiration for those seeking empowerment and liberation.

Use this meditation to tap into the reservoir of strength within yourself, shedding the constraints imposed by societal norms and embracing your authentic, powerful self.

The Preparation:

  1. Find a quiet and comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed.
  2. Light a candle and some incense to create a sacred atmosphere.
  3. Sit or lie down in a relaxed position, ensuring your spine is straight and your body is comfortable.

The Meditation:

Close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply, in through the nose, out through the mouth. Take as much time as you need to clear your mind.

Feel your body grounding into the Earth beneath you. Imagine roots extending from your feet, deep into the ground. Visualize the energy of the Earth rising up through these roots, filling you with stability and vitality.

When it feels organic, conjure a bright, powerful light surrounding you, protecting you, and filling you with courage and strength. As this happens, focus on your intention to connect with Lilith and to step into your own power; to confront and transcend patriarchal influences.

Take yourself to a wide open desert at night time. The sky is full of stars and the light of the moon touches the sand and the rocks. As you move around you come across a cave entrance.

A figure emerges from the shadows – it is Lilith, the ancient goddess of independence and strength. She stands tall and powerful, radiating confidence and wisdom.

Extend your hand toward Lilith. Feel her energy and presence. As you touch her, a surge of empowerment flows through you. You are connected with the fierce, untamed energy of the Divine Feminine.

Now, speak with her. Share your experiences and frustrations with patriarchal influences in your life. Talk about the challenges you’ve faced and the changes you wish to bring about.

Listen as Lilith imparts her wisdom. She tells you that you possess the strength and resilience to overcome these challenges. She encourages you to embrace your inner power, your desires, and your unique voice. Let her tell you everything you need to know about stepping into your true power.

You begin to feel a transformation taking place within you. As you connect with Lilith’s energy, you shed the limitations and doubts imposed by the patriarchy. Visualize these constraints dropping into the sand, turning to dust, leaving you free and unburdened.

Feeling the newfound strength and determination coursing through your veins, you stand taller. You are no longer a victim of patriarchal norms; you are a force to be reckoned with.

Repeat the following words, out loud:

“I am powerful. I am free. I am unapologetically me.”

Spend as much time as you need with Lilith. When it’s time to bring your transformed self back to the physical realm, thank Lilith for her guidance and strength. Watch as she fades back into the shadows, knowing that her energy is always within you.

Slowly bring your awareness back to the physical space around you. Wiggle your fingers and toes, and when you’re ready, open your eyes.

This meditation is a powerful way to connect with the energy of Lilith and tap into your inner strength to confront and transcend patriarchal influences in your life. You just need to remember that you are a fierce force of nature, capable of incredible transformation and empowerment.
