Derek Lamar speaks about Diana’s healing force in her expression of femaleness and how, at her death, “our sense of loss was also finding something that we didn’t know was there…the female aspect within ourselves.” This nurturing, more compassionate feminine dimension has been missing in action for the world as a whole, as well as within men and women individually. Diana’s death became a universal recognition of “what we thought we lost was our moment of finding ourselves.”
After her divorce and a year or so before her death, Diana was searching for a greater sense of freedom: for love and relationship, for a place to live to have a safe and more private life as well as to be able to explore a deeper relationship with herself. She may not have found such personal freedom, yet we see results of her influence in the more authentic lives her ex-husband and two sons are living, including Charles’ and William’s relationships with their wives.
So whether we’re under the influence of the Age of Aquarius, or the energies of planet Venus, or some new world order shaped by a beautiful princess—or whether you only trust and believe what you can see, hear, taste, smell or physically feel—whatever you believe or don’t believe, once you’ve looked deep into your on heart, it’d be hard to deny that the world is indeed dancing to a new tune! And although the naysayers and complainers and mean-spirited pundits out there may be really loud and forceful, and equality and cooperation may seem like a distant dream, “nothing changes the environment,” as Neale Donald Walsch wrote, “like one person deciding to love another, no matter what.”
