Holay, Woman! It is time to rise up!
I've had this feeling for years. And the more I observe what is happening with my family and friends, my community, my city, country, and the world, the more I know this to be true.
And with the rhythms of Mother Nature, the pull of the Moon Cycles, and the unveiling of Spring, I feel it even more.
As women, womxn, femmes, insert whatever words feels good to you here, we are needed. We are part of the balance. Part of the healing. Part of the Love that we are all searching for.
Here are three ways to begin. To rise up and share who you are with the world.
1. Express you.
Close your eyes. Imagine expressing yourself freely, authentically, without concern for what other people think. What are you doing? Are you moving or still? Are you putting energy out or receiving? Are you creating or taking in creation? Where are you? Are you talking, singing, humming, or silent? Are you alone or with someone? What feels good? What do you feel in your body? What feels like you?
2. Connect to Mama Nature.
She is you. You are her. That connection is there all the time. If you don't feel it right now, what would help you feel it? Where would you go to feel it? What surrounds you when you feel connected to nature? How do you feel when you have that connection? How do you feel when you breathe in her air? Drink her water? Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin? Walk on her earth? How does she want to connect with you?
3. Step into who you are.
Get your journal out or invite a friend over for tea and chat this one over.
What does being a woman, femme, womxn, mean to you?
It's open. There are no rules.
Soft or strong.
Vulnerable or defensive.
Big or small.
Wise or not.
Busy or not.
Loving or not.
Maybe all of these.
Without the pressure of what you been taught, what the media presents, and what your peers say, who are you?
Maybe even without the label of woman/femme/womxn, who are you?
I can't wait to meet you.
Listen to you.
Share with you.
Hold space for you to be who you are.
Hold space for your authentic expansion.
