HOLY WOMEN

The Pearl Beyond Price

(A Prayer)

Oh, Divine Bringer of the People. You reign in the worlds above and below.

You who manifests the stellar life through the many forms of Divine Light such and in the many who have come in the past, present, and future. We bow and honor all Your forms.

Your compassion is endless and inexhaustible.

We pray forever-lasting energy, courage, and wisdom. May we harmlessly fulfill Your mighty task of complete surrender to the  Divine Creator and shatter every obstacle with love.

When my heart yearns to unite, it is Your attraction.

When my eyes shine, it is Your cosmic vastness.

When my soul breathes, it is Your Divine law.

When my body dies, it is Your everlasting presence that remains.

Oh, Powerful Cosmic-walker, shower us with eternal starlight that we may know our Divine origin in You.

Purify us and set us free from the conditioned wheel of forgetfulness.

Make us your lucid instruments of peace and protectors of the Feminine and the innocence of the world.

Brighten our indwelling Shekinah, Chisti and Ruh.

Cast forth Your uniting web of beneficence within the depths of the earth and into the infinite galaxies.

Blessing to All

Introduction to my new book, Sweet Reign-Fourth Wave Feminism Principles

(Copyright 2020 Dr. Perez-Chisti)

Hidden in Holy Women’s intuitive actions are the seeds for the spiritual potential that opens a harmonious direction toward understanding Fourth Wave Feminism. Women who are spiritually motivated and socially responsive in their service to humanity draw us closer to ourselves because their insights and actions have manifested clear tracks into how we might understand our spiritual experiences. These Holy Women are archetype forerunners of our human potential. How they confronted the circumstances of their particular challenges while here on earth, gives us a window into choices sometimes unknown to us as we come face to face with ourselves. While writing this book and while absorbing their teachings, my experiences leap together with theirs, and consilience is confirmed, a theophanic connection to the mystical source of Oneness, who is the Holy Mother of the World-Gaia, converges and Fourth Wave Feminine Principles are born. Doubt vanishes and one can sense through the subtle awareness and deep knowing in our hearts, the Divine connection with Source.

In this book, I present the stories of Eight Holy Women from many religious belief systems and show how their lives modeled five examination techniques such as transcendental phenomenology, hermeneutics, Sufi esoteric principles, and sociological considerations to bring forward Fourth Wave Feminine awareness, not as a methodology but as a combined progression for illuminating my own experiences and I align with theirs. As a Sufi and transpersonal, postmodern mystic, I therefore include my own experiences as a source of collaborative information and I become the ninth woman in the text. I hope this kind of association will offer insight within the reader’s somatic sensing as an example of how one can reveal a natural integration of body/mind/soul through Fourth Wave Feminine Principles that regard other and self as one. Fourth Wave Feminine Principles will teach us how to read ourselves as we are reading others. With the guiding principles of participatory synchronicity, pairing, consilience, and correlation found in “our lived experiences,” one can activate the celestial climate that reveals the ever-living teacher, the great Holy Mother of the World-Gaia, who abides in all beings at all times.
