As soon as I read these words, it hit me.
I am not alone.
I am exactly where I need to be, doing exactly what I need to be doing.
For years, women have been dreaming of what my sisters and I know and can feel is happening.
WE are not alone.
The revolution is underway.
This is cause for a celebration!
I am here to tell my story.
The truth is that I did not plan on becoming a voice for the feminine spiritual revolution. In fact, I thought for sure there is something else I am here to do, something more marketable that fits neatly into a business plan, like weight-loss.
The harder I fought to "find" my perfect business proposition, my target market, the more resistance I felt. I was in my head and something was missing, nagging at me.
"There is something bigger."
"Get to the core of what women and the world truly need."
"Don't be scared. It's time. Women are ready for this."
There is no cookie-cutter business model to follow. There is no "for sure." But this is a risk worth taking because I believe in it more deeply than anything. This is what motivates and excites me, makes my heart beat faster and sends chills in waves through my body. It is time to stop "trying" and start "being." This is what I and we have been waiting for.
This is what wants to flow through me.
Well shit. That means getting really fucking honest, real, vulnerable about what is happening for me and the women I call sisters. That also means seriously trusting in myself and my abilities to make a greater vision for life on this planet a bonafide reality.
The parts of me that were self-conscious or worried about being judged have dissipated into fully accepting my responsibility.
I recently found myself on a rooftop here in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, alone, under the stars, peering out over the jungle with the orchestra of the waves, speaking out loud, witnessed only by earth and sky, saying,
"YES. I accept. I accept the challenge."
It is up to me to listen to my own inner wisdom and speak my truth in service to other women and the world. It is up to me to get out of my own way.
It is time for women to return to ourselves, our natural rhythms and each other, remember how we used to be revered, and reclaim our femininity and the value of our gifts.
The knowledge we are reviving is not the type taught in schools, churches or company retreats. This is not a thing of the ego or the intellect. In fact, it is quite the opposite.
The wisdom and power that lies waiting for women is visceral.
vis·cer·al /vis(ə)rəl/ adjective: relating to deep inward feelings rather than to the intellect; synonyms: instinctive, instinctual, gut, deep-down, deep-seated, deep-rooted, inward
We are here to reclaim what is ours to know, love, trust and express...
And so it is.
