Unplugging the Patriarchy – A Mystical Journey into the Heart of a New Age by Lucia Rene – is a book given to me by a friend for Christmas.
I had a very negative reaction to it when I opened the package. Ugh. I didn’t like the cover colors, didn’t like the title, didn’t like the meditative figure. I did not like it, Sam-I-Am. Not one thing.
Luckily, my friend lives on the other side of the country, so she didn’t see the faces I was making. I showed it to a friend who came by, who suggested I might give it to yet another friend, who needed to unplug from the patriarchy, since it seemed like a self-help personal empowerment book.
I finally decided a couple of weeks ago that, having had such an adverse reaction, I likely needed to actually read it myself. I really liked it even less as I started to read, though the writing isn’t bad. It’s a conspiracy theory book, set from 2002 through about 2005, published in 2009.
It seems that thousands of years ago, we were seeded here on this planet. Time went on. Then some of the seed-ers and seed-ees got mixed up together. Time went on. The seed-ers left. The male-dominated patriarchy began to oppress the females. Then it was organized into a system to capture all the wealth and power of the planet, to turn the chakras counter-clockwise, and turn what looks like freedom into oppression.
And the author of this fictionalized memoir and 2 of her friends, plus her boyfriend, are involved, directed by her no-longer-on-the-planet teacher and the Lineage (a group entity – I know those exist), in unhooking, destabilizing and taking apart all these systems, so the planet and we can be free again.
Since I’m a mystic myself, I can certainly attest to some of their experiences in meditation, how those experiences feel, and how one can feel later. And I certainly agree that energy is flooding into our world, as more of us wake up and draw it in. To me, change is definitely in the air, we have crossed the paradigm shift halfway point, and the arc of history is finally bending toward beauty and justice.
But my experience in politics has always made me leery of conspiracy theories. People cannot keep secrets. And all of these mystical layers and rings and the world tree and….
You get my drift. I think I am glad I read it, just to know that folks like these are out there. But you can just take my word for it, and don’t have to read it yourselves.
