This painting developed over time from a series of waking dream images. With current women’s issues of reproductive rights, sexual slavery and general abuse of our planet, this image of Sekhmet as the Guardian of Women’s Knowing, Women’s Power and Women’s Rights hits the right tone for me. Embracing the knowing we can call upon in Earth and Moon, as well as our own wombs, we women have an enormous amount of inner support and reserves that have been disallowed, shunned and ridiculed.
Womb Power is the symbol for my apprenticeship program, Goddess Consciousness: dismantling the patriarchy, and is my choice of cover for my book by the same title.
I had a t-shirt made of this image. It is one of my favorite paintings.
