Now, more than ever, we are being called to stand up, speak our truths and live with compassion, authenticity and fearless hearts. Many of us are feeling a call to live more sustainably and protect the earth, to learn/share integrated practices which help us to live from a place of love and not fear. Our individual efforts are 100% needed for a collective shift...
This is why I teach yoga and meditation.
I know that these teachings have given me tools to step out of my personal addictions, and help me to make better decisions daily.
And with my own healing, I can offer more support and love to those around me. I can live a life of service and have the most positive impact in the world.
Most importantly, I know that these practices bring people together in community and that ideas become more powerful when shared...
This shift in consciousness is the rise of the Divine Feminine. The energy of the female is potent -- She gifts us the qualities of creativity, intuition, protection, holistic thought, collaboration, empathy and unconditional love...all of which have been ignored and abused within our society for far too long.
While men have an equally important role to play, it is women's time to gather in sisterhood to encourage mass collaboration and love as the qualities our society will recognize and hold sacred moving forwards.
This is why I share the practices of yoga and mindfulness through retreat immersions around the world. I want EVERY human to first treat themselves with the love and respect they deserve through heathy lifestyle habits: high vibe nourishment through diet, sleep patterns, physical movement and time for reflection and relaxation to bring awareness to the parts of us we need to nourish (or begin to nourish) daily. I want women to learn to accept themselves exactly as they are, to see themselves as a beautiful and unique Goddess and live with more sweetness. Most important, I want everyone to experience the gift of sacred community: what it feels like to be seen, heard and felt from a place of neutrality. When we feel nourished from within and supported from those around us, we naturally rise into our highest selfs.
This is the power of Divine Sisterhood. Our sisters provide the platform for loving-kindness and a safe haven of support. Our sisters help shape-shift us into better partners, mothers and daughters. They remind us of our power and responsibilities as women of the world. They hold us accountable without shame or blame. They honor our uniqueness and help us integrate with tenderness. The power of sisterhood is fierce, creative, loving and a change-maker...and this energy resides within each one of us.
As we are all a direct mirror reflection of one another, it is imperative we take initiative and become mentors for the world. Women must celebrate and collaborate with one another in order to encourage those around us to follow suit.
And when enough of us support one another to take action, the system will naturally adapt to support us. There is a ripple effect which will spread far and wide.
But it begins on an individual level...
It is our birth right to step into our highest selves -- to be happy, healthy and give back to the entire eco-system that is our global family. This is a call to action to create more Divine Sisterhood in our lives. Together, women can change the world. I feel it. I believe it with every single cell in my being. Things are just getting good and I am so honored to be here, right now, alongside you.
The Divine Goddess within me, recognizes the Divine Goddess within each and every one of you.
