The days when women could be homemakers and mothers OR business women are over. Anything and everything is possible now as the mental boundaries we have set are dissolving.
Innate in all women is this extraordinary power that I called Sacred Feminine Power of Creation, and in the previous article I promised to share five practices you can apply immediately to reawaken and express that Sacred Power.
1) Stop looking for solutions to problems that never existed; and the most common ‘problem’ is ‘I’m not good enough’. This is a problem that has never existed so it seems a futile mission to look for the solution. You, Goddess woman; are, were and always have been ENOUGH. An immediate way to apply this practice is to stop comparing yourself to others. You cannot express your Sacred Power of Creation while holding the belief ‘I am not good enough’. When you catch yourself comparing, ask “What would I do or be if this weren’t true?”
2) Beware the words you speak. One of my all-time favourite books is “Mists of Avalon” by Marion Zimmer Bradley, and in one scene Merlin says “Beware the words you speak, for they make shadows of that which is to come. By speaking them we bring them to pass.” Words have great power; use them with awareness of what you are creating.
3) Take time for silence and sit with Goddess energy. State your intention to express your Sacred Feminine Power more consciously and notice the feelings that come up. Do you feel shame, unworthiness, excitement or disbelief? Simply allow the feelings to be there. The body quickly moves towards balance when we stop blocking our feelings.
4) Open to receiving. Your Sacred Feminine Power is magnetic and attractive; it draws your desires to you. This requires you to receive, which is not the same as accepting. Receiving requires an openness and vulnerability that accepting does not. Start small, perhaps a compliment or a small gift. Whatever your first reaction, simply say thank you to accept the gift.
5) Practice self-love. Self-love is a verb, a doing word. ‘I love myself’ are not merely words you repeat when putting on your makeup. Make a short list to answer the question “What do I need/want for me to thrive each day?” It can be as simple as getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, making sure you connect to the Divine each day, moving your body every hour. Then commit to implementing at least 3-4 each day and watch the difference it makes to how you feel about yourself and what shows up in your world.
All of these practices are designed to honour, respect and love YOU, and in turn, allows you to honour, respect and love The Goddess! I would love to hear your ideas and practices.
