About Lilith

Contrary to popular belief, the spiritual war is happening in the feminine principle, not the masculine. As a former sex worker of twenty years (before it was trending), I have a unique perspective on power and sexuality in our society. 


Many in the magical community still cling to the traditional portrayal of Lilith as a succubus demoness, the fallen first wife of Adam, but her narrative is more complex and compelling than that. 


In Jewish mysticism, she is often depicted as the first woman, made from the same earth as Adam, symbolizing equality and shared origins. But unlike Eve, who was born from Adam's rib and is typically portrayed as compliant, Lilith is imbued with fierce independence and an unwavering demand for equality.


However, her refusal to conform to traditional gender roles, especially her resistance to being submissive to Adam, eventually led to her departure from Eden. This independence and defiance, combined with her subsequent portrayal as a night-dwelling demoness, can reflect societal fears and anxieties about powerful, non-conforming women.


Lilith's transformation into a succubus—a demoness in female form who seduces men—reveals many psychological and societal implications. It encapsulates the fear of female autonomy and sexuality and the punishment of women who do not fit within societal norms.


By portraying Lilith as a succubus, the narrative effectively demonizes her desire for equality and autonomy. The psychological consequences of this narrative are profound: it perpetuates the notion that powerful women are dangerous or demonic, which can reinforce gender stereotypes and contribute to the subjugation of women, reinforcing paternalistic power structures. 


The individuals who celebrate this Lilith may see themselves as rebellious or subversive, but they have become nothing more than controlled opposition, playing into the very power structures they claim to oppose.


Through my carefully observed direct experience as an outsider occupying the shadows of society, I have come to see a truth about Lilith that hides in plain sight. I reject the traditional portrayal of Lilith as a succubus demoness and instead recognize her as the embodiment of primordial nature itself. From this point of view, I observe the hermetic laws of nature, informed by the perennial Western dark feminine outsider.


The traditional narrative surrounding Lilith has long been steeped in patriarchal mythos, portraying her as a temptress and a destroyer of men. However, this portrayal is a misrepresentation of Lilith's true nature. Lilith embodies the raw power and unbridled potential of primordial nature, defying paternalistic norms and challenging traditional power structures within the self and outside the self. As such, she is a powerful symbol of dark feminine power and liberation.


In my work, I see the concept of the "dark feminine" as raw nature. That perspective is deeply rooted in many ancient mythologies, spiritual systems, and psychological theories. It signifies the primal and uncontrollable forces of nature and the unconscious mind.


In the context of "raw nature," the dark feminine represents the untamed, the wilderness that is uncontrolled by human hands, where the fundamental laws of life and death, survival, and the interdependence of species dictate the rules. This is where the superficialities of human societal constructs fade into irrelevance. It reflects our most primal instincts: survival, procreation, and the raw emotions that come with them, such as anger, passion, jealousy, and desire.


On a psychological level, the dark feminine often symbolizes the shadow aspects of our personal and collective unconscious, as articulated by Carl Jung. We often deny or repress this part of ourselves because it does not align with the socially constructed ideal of who we should be - our societal mask or persona. The dark feminine, in this sense, represents suppressed emotions, unfulfilled desires, unexpressed anger or sorrow, and the parts of us we consider socially unacceptable. It's the side of us that we often reject or ignore for fear of societal rejection.


The dark feminine also represents the wild and untamed aspects of femininity that have often been suppressed in patriarchal societies. In a society that often values restraint, order, and predictability, the feminine's primal, chaotic, and unpredictable aspects have often been labeled as "dangerous" or "undesirable." Yet, these essential aspects of life embody the whole spectrum of human experiences and emotions.


Reconnecting with the dark feminine can often lead to wholeness and authenticity. It is about acknowledging and embracing all aspects of our humanity, including those that are painful, messy, or uncomfortable. It is a call to embrace our primal instincts, honor our emotional and instinctual selves, and reject the societal expectation of perfection and continual happiness.


This is not to say that the dark feminine is "bad" or "negative" - instead, it is a powerful, essential, and often overlooked aspect of our human nature. Like nature, it can be both destructive and creative, terrifying and beautiful. It can lead us to the depths of despair and the heights of passion and creativity. We deny a vital part of who we are by denying or repressing the dark feminine. By embracing it, we can come closer to fully understanding ourselves and our place in the natural world.


In contrast, Eve is often portrayed as the idealized feminine figure, molded to reflect the archetypal narcissist and his false self. This portrayal of Eve as the false feminine of culture reinforces patriarchal power structures and maintains the status quo within the self and outside the self. In reality, Eve is the shadow of Lilith, not the other way around.


We can liberate Lilith by observing the shadow of Eve in our own lives and society. 


In the primal tapestry of Western creation mythology, these two feminine archetypes emerge—Lilith, the symbol of raw nature, and Eve, the embodiment of cultured femininity. These archetypal figures trace their roots to ancient times, yet their influence remains deeply ingrained in the psyche of Western society.


Eve, in essence, represents the co-opted feminine, molded by societal structures and power dynamics, her identity a direct consequence of Adam's actions. But it is important to recognize that Eve's trauma, much like the trauma of any victim, isn't her fault. However, the onus still lies on the victim to seek healing, to chart the path toward wholeness. The necessity of this journey towards healing, towards emancipation, is as vital as acknowledging the original cause of the trauma.


Yet, as we explore the contemporary narrative, we see the feminine principle assimilated into toxic virtues of power in Western culture. Instead of being a genuine force of rebellion and change, she becomes an instrument of controlled opposition, a puppet masquerading as a revolutionary.


I once entertained the notion that Lilith and Eve could reconcile their diametrically opposed natures, a unification of the wild and the tamed. But a profound realization dawned upon me—the more the feminine principle engages in shadow work, the smaller Eve becomes until she dissolves into non-existence.


What remains is Lilith, the original woman. The embodiment of the raw, unfiltered feminine that resists co-optation. She remains enslaved, not just in the world, but within the deep recesses of the Western mind. She is a captive in a cultural and psychological narrative that resists her liberation.


The shadow of Lilith over Eve represents an ongoing struggle for feminine identity—the conflict between society’s expectations and the unbridled essence of womanhood and the feminine. To free the feminine principle from these shackles, we must, in a symbolic sense, murder Eve. Only through this sacrificial act can we restore Lilith to her rightful place and reinstate her as the reigning embodiment of the feminine. In the cosmic balance of 'as above, so below', it is time to bring the spirit of Lilith from the depths of the underworld back to the light of consciousness, reclaiming this inherent wild wisdom and unfiltered power of feminine nature. 


This struggle and the steps towards resolution underscore the importance of embracing the Lilith within, a step towards reclaiming the unfiltered, undiluted power of the feminine principle.

The archetypal Lilith is the One who tethers us back to ourselves, naked and unashamed, and represents the holistic feminine's raw power and unbridled potential. But to reclaim her power, we must first understand how we have been taught to suppress and control the dark feminine within ourselves and the world around us.


The reclamation of feminine power is not about putting men down or establishing matriarchal power structures, which can reinforce the same suppressive value system. It is about recognizing and remembering the power of the dark feminine and integrating Her root common sense into our collective consciousness. By embracing the power of Lilith, we can tap into the primordial power of nature, return to balance and materialize the authentic magnificence of the human being.


In a world where systems of power and oppression like governments, organized religion and academia threaten to lead us down a path of destruction and despair, it is more important than ever to return to the root and embrace the power of Lilith. 


Many self-proclaimed experts on Lilith and feminine power exist in this new occult renaissance. However, few of these experts have the raw materials of direct experience to support their claims. Many come ready-made, without the embodied expertise and initiations necessary to truly understand and integrate the teachings of Lilith into their own lives. That's why, if you are looking for a facilitator to help you through your dark feminine integration and liberation, it is wise to turn to someone with embodied, acutely observed, initiatory experience. I did not learn about Lilith in a sterile academic setting, nor stepped down and out of a soulless corporate culture. I have not fallen from grace but rather come up from hell. Like the alchemist, we must learn to distinguish between raw materials and ready-made materials. Simply put: acutely observed experience over a long period of time is the greatest teacher of wisdom.


My life has become a fieldwork project. Having reached 50 years of age, I am ready and eager to share these esoteric revelations with Gen Z and Millennial women who are genuinely prepared to discover, integrate and liberate their own inner Lilith and see how she remains relegated to the shadows within themselves and in society.
