She posted this on Facebook yesterday, and I HAD to share it:
The further I dive into Goddess Worship the less I speak about the Divine Feminine & Divine Masculine.
I’m still working all of this out in my head and within myself.
I’m all about primordial energy, archetypes, and deities.
I don’t see energy as black and white.
I personally identify as a Woman, Goddess, and KING.
Those are how I feel…lol.
I also don’t see my logical thinking as masculine or feminine… it’s just me. Some would like to put it in a box and many have used it as a way to shame me.
For example, in relationships, I’ve been accused of having a lot of masculine energy and that was said in an attempt to shame me back into “femininity” as if femininity is docile.
Sekhmet is extremely feminine to me and she’s a Warrior Goddess. Every aspect of her nature screams WOMAN to me… it screams SOVEREIGN.
Everyone has their own harmonious version of where they fall on that “feminine/masculine” spectrum and I feel that the sooner we honor everyone’s self-expression and respect that this self-expression is forever changing.. the better.
I say all of this to say… BE YOU.
Don’t obsess over the label and don’t feel that you have to be more or less of anything just because of your sex or gender.
What makes you happy? What feels good? That’s all that matters.

This reminded me so much of some of the writing I’ve done on seeing problems with the feminine/masculine spectrum. I asked Je Tuan if she’d be down to jam on this topic with me in my Facebook Group The Curious Witches Quantum Circle and she said YES!
You’ll need to join the facebook group to watch it live and interact, but I’ll post it on the website after!
About Je Tuan Jones:
I’m Je Tuan Jones, High Priestess and Spiritual Advisor.
One day I decided I wanted more from my life and I didn’t care what it took to get it. I wanted my own happiness more than I wanted anything else and that was the day my life changed forever.
Today, I am an Ordained Metaphysical Minister, Master Reiki Healer, Clairvoyant, NLP Life Coach, and Metaphysics Doctoral Candidate.
This hasn’t always been my life. At one point I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stick it out in this realm anymore.
I’m an ex-church girl. I have a very religious background and was raised to fear God. I saw God more as an opposing force who wanted to impose his will onto me. Yet, I followed those practices even when they didn’t feel good.
I was diagnosed with Chronic Depression, an Anxiety Disorder, and PTSD, when I was 19 years old although I’d had those feelings since I was a very young child.
Those alone were more than enough to drive me off the edge but I’m also an emotional/verbal abuse, and multiple rape survivor.
After going through major depressive episodes, developing several unhealthy addictions, and no longer recognizing who I was, I went on a journey of self discovery. I’ve been on this journey for 8 years and it’s shifted my entire life. Along this journey, I found a new form of spirituality.
I started with meditation and yoga and it was the best thing that ever happened to me.
I discovered the path of the Goddess.
Goddess Worship is something every woman should try. There’s NOTHING like discovering the power of the Divine Feminine. As you get to know Sekhmet, Durga, Kuan Yin, and more, you will discover your own power.
I’m on a mission to help Goddesses like you tap into their own power. There’s nothing you can’t overcome, but it takes grit and grace.
Working with me is like eating at a luxury spiritual buffet with a private dining option. Because of my eclectic background in metaphysics, I’m able to pull from different spiritual practices and I use a plethora of healing modalities. While I honor sacred practices and tradition, I’m not bound by them. I believe in doing what works and what feels good. So what works for me, may not work for you and I’m comfortable with giving you access to a different path.
