Sisterhood. What does this mean to you?
Much of my work is with women who desire to create a more loving and accepting relationship with themselves. I support them to connect with their own wisdom, learning how to read their bodies, their intuition and how to change beliefs that keep them feeling small, insignificant, weak, scared, undeserving, undervalued....the list goes on!
The beliefs we have adopted over the span of our lives happens through our families, communities, life experiences, gender roles modelled to us within all of those, in our cultural media, and collective psyche!
Our negative self-talk and low self-worth often leads to judgement, distrust, exaggeration, blame, and tearing down of others in order to feel bigger and better in some way. This is true for both men and women, of all genders and many cultures.
Speaking to the feminine collective, this insidious behaviour, whether conscious or unconscious, is toxic and breaks our kinship apart. It fragments us, weakens us and sends us out on the ice flows of isolation and apathy.
Our patriarchal history has nurtured this quite cleverly and purposefully through the centuries. "Divide and Conquer"; "Let them tear each other apart". We have been baited time and time again by the hands of capitalism, industrialization, advertising and marketing of all forms, as way to manipulate power and personal choice to the benefit of the corporate, social, and political machines.
Women have inherent tenacity, resilience, intuitive depths and deep instinctual nature - we have birthed this world, from the time of it's inception.
This is not about bashing men, or the masculine energy. We need a better balance of the masculine and feminine energies present within us all, men and women alike, and within our societies for our humanity to flourish and this planet to be saved.
However, historically there has been a great imbalance, whereby the much of the feminine has retreated out of fear and manipulation, and /or turned on itself for perceived "survival".
Why is this important?
Our awakening to our true worth, voices, choices comes along with awareness of how our beliefs have been molded, and how they influence how we show up in the world. Women have so much to offer each other an the world! A return to one's true essence and potential is crucial at this time on the planet.
When women support, love and celebrate each other the potency and potential is of such an incredible magnitude it shakes the literal foundations of our families, communities, and socio-cultural strongholds.
In a good way!!! Even if unfamiliar, and perhaps uncomfortable, for those not used to the beautiful force of the true feminine.
The divine feminine is both nurturing and fierce. Tender and wild. Knowing and focused!
We are NEEDED in all our techno-color and strength!
Sisters, we need each other now more than ever. To help heal our lineages of pain and loss. To guide and strengthen the generations of young men and women who will carry the torch of humanity forward.
Let our legacy be one of Sisterhood, not of toxicity.
Awaken. Step Out & Step Up!
Where can YOU start?
Below is my daughter's bedroom wall art she created recently! BAM!
From our hearts to yours! XO
We can choose to "do this life" alone, hiding all the raw real beautiful parts of ourselves and that is exactly how we will feel....ALONE. OR we can create Sisterhood, on purpose!
The old way of "going it alone", hiding and/or creating toxic vibes and environments for our women has done nothing but create loneliness, degenerate our joy, sense of worth and our potential.
WE NEED EACH OTHER!!!
It is time for the feminine to rise again in love and empowerment.
Like sisters let's offer love, acceptance of difference, truth telling, working though all the feels, helping each other up when we fall, holding each other tight, laughing with each other until it hurts and being the family for each other, perhaps the sisterhood we always wanted. Learn along the way, with each other.
Create safe, supportive, and playful space for yourself & your sisters!
A deep bow to all of you my SISTARS!
