so here's the real tea..
when you go back to your roots of being a woman, when you become one with yourself again with mindful practice, you can create magic.
There is no stronger force than a circle of women. When we uphold, account for and work together we are unstoppable. Look at the #metoo and #timesup movements, look at the Hidden Figures behind the first moon landing, look at how you feel after an afternoon with your soul sisters. When we come together and congregate, our vibration is raised and we are as such elevated to a higher level of being.
That feeling after a good cry to one of your best friends, or when you call your mum or grandmother just to catch up, that's The Power of She at work. As women, we are stronger together than any other force, and even writing this I have goosebumps at the thought of the love I feel for all my earth sisters.
Women used to be leaders of the tribe. Wise women, at one with the earth, would be the healers, the carers and the providers for their community. Even today in tribes inhabiting the far reaches of the globe, women are the goddess' of their villages.
For centuries now we have been suppressed. Instead of holding our feminine power in our emotional maturity, our connection to Mother Earth and Moon, empathy and strength, we have been told a number of conflicting things of 'how to be'.
any of these ring a bell?
"You're being too emotional."
"You throw like a girl."
"Are you on your period?"
"We should get a man in to fix that."
"Jeez, no need to be a bitch."
"You're too bossy."
"Show us a smile."
"We need to get you laid."
You are exhausted. Exhausted of trying to live your truth in living out your dreams but also trying to hold down the household, your marriage, your work/life balance, cook dinner, clean, be a friend, a sister, a mother, a wife, a girlfriend, a woman. For too long you have been trying to do it all and you've reached a point where you're living for others, not indulging in your desires, losing touch with yourself, not allowing yourself to just be.
You're going through the motions. You're existing. You aren't living.
