Reclaiming the feminine = Reclaiming sisterhood
It's time. It's time to make this change.
It's time to healing the hurt we woman have done to each other.
I sit here, perched on a New England rock, surrounded by shoreline grasses, at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.
I feel the power of the tide as it rushes closer and closer. I feel its magnitude. A power so much bigger than me.
As I watch the ripple affect of the tide rolling in on the shoreline and I think of my own power and the ripple affect my power has on the world around me.
And even though, I am a small part of this great world, my power affects others. Deeply.
And as I re-enter the world (from all my traveling and adventures) I am aware of all the major things happening in the news around the feminine. I am reading all the touching post of the abuse caused by men. Watching clips of the crazy trial. I have felt anger, sadness, and torn apart. It has also spurred me on to do my work, to stand tall for the feminine by helping women be more visible with their powerful gifts.
AND I sit here so sad, I sit here with a heavy heart.
As julie and in where up late last night talking, after an amazing epic day of sisterhood.
Julie turns to me and says "we are not just healing from the patriarchy we are healing the wounds caused by other women."
A full body chills ran access my skin. I felt the power of hers words so deeply.
The only way to make change is to heal sisterhood, to heal from our past and to stop hurting each other.
In that moment I felt all the harms done to me by other women.
Betrayal, judgment, and being outcast.
Then I almost started crying thinking about the harms I have done other woman. Like the my best friend in elementary school who I ostracized so I could be friends with popular girls.
So we have come all this way to a city that is known for its harm done to women, by the patriarchy during the Salem witch trials.... but to learned that women's betrayal of each other played a huge part in the persecution.
This has got to stop.
We need to heal. We need to stop judging, to putting each other down, stop not listening, punishing, behaving badly because we are jealous.
How so we do this? I don't know the full answer.
But I am committed to leaning into sisterhood to find out.
I am committed to uplift and to support the woman in my life. To stop judging, to stop talking behind another woman back. To be all inclusive.
What woman's life can you make better today? How can we heal?
