First, we must realize what we are as women. We are sensual and spiritual. We can be emotional and be good at business. We can be kind and experience anger. In a society that breeds either/or, right/wrong thinking, it is easy to get trapped in wearing one mask and judging the sexy, passionate, vulnerable shadow selves we ALL have. One of the most important things women can do is come together to heal. It is in sharing our stories. It is in speaking of our fears and our doubts that we heal our shame and embrace our shadow. While silence and isolation feed the cycle of shame, speaking up and out heals the wound. When one woman shares her truth, it allows others to do the same. SADNESS AND SURRENDER
There are tons of women’s groups and communities created to contain a space of sisterhood. I am blessed to run The Goddess Collective chapter in Los Angeles. I have witnessed so much growth and expansion in our members. In a society where women are actually taught competition, circles like The Goddess Collective (http://www.meetup.com/Goddesscollectivela/) nourish the spirit and model a different way—one where we are in harmony with our bodies and each other. As we heal on a deep level, we are able to lead, to create the careers and the money, and attract the love that we deserve. As we share and collaborate and support one another, we birth the red, hot, leader within. More and more women are finding the sisterhood and support they need to honor their wisdom, cherish their bodies, find their voice and heal the shame that has silenced them for too long.
