I've been meeting and connecting with LOTS of creative women lately. It's been SO affirming of my intention to move out of solitude into a community of kindreds that are aligned to nourish and empowers each other's process. I love how my life kickstarts into high gear when I surround myself with creative, soulful women.
The women I've met and resonated with recently are special because they're each perfectly imperfect. They're willing to be authentic, real, vulnerable and honest about who they are, and that includes the messy, unhealed stuff--the stuff they're dealing with personally, with their families, with their careers, with their bodies and so on. It's rare for me to see anyone holding back and hiding behind the mask of perfection these days. Instead, we're exposing our flaws and quirks and wounds without hesitation and discovering that doing so opens us to the flow of love.
The old ideas of perfection are fading along with lots of other outdated overly masculine ways of thinking and behaving. The divine feminine is emerging and with it are new ways of moving, new ways of relating and new ways of creating. The world is a mess and women are gathering in kindred tribes to intuit solutions that offer creative, collaborative and cooperative alternatives to our dog-eat-dog competitive world.
An intuitive, heart-centered, right-brained, spiritually driven energy is spreading through many parts of women's lives as we reach deeper into our souls for meaning and nourishment. We're not solitary beings, we enjoy communing, sharing, listening and holding space and many of us are being led to seek that out above and beyond everything else we're doing. It's a return to our primal roots and we're adamant about grounding ourselves in what works and what serves the whole, not just the select few.
Love is who we are and women seem to be leading the way back to our natural state by way of acceptance of our perfectly imperfect selves. Being REAL brings aliveness, joy, trust, peace and radiance to our being. No more pretending or putting a good face on things. No more people pleasing and stuffing our feelings. No more self-betrayal or heavy compromise. Only love, just unconditional love that covers our sacred wounds with a healing balm soothing and holding them so that we have the courage to embrace and integrate them as unique and beautiful expressions.
The mirror of the divine feminine is showing us that to heal people and planet, we must become warriors of truth, dropping the lies, games and manipulation so that we can commune again and honor each other as sacred sovereign beings.
So gather the women. Find your tribe. And peels those layers that keep you from shining your radiance to the world. You matter and dammit, we need you.
