There is a beautiful wave rising around the world at the moment.
She is picking up … gaining momentum.
It is a wave propelled forward by love, a wave that once you start riding, you cannot get enough of, a wave like a drug.
I have fallen back off, and I couldn’t wait to jump back on and raise my vibes back up to the level of the wave.
It is the wave of sisterhood.
Our society has brought us up to believe that other women are a threat. We should try and be Cindy Crawford, Elle McPherson or Kate Moss. And if we weren’t, the man we so desired would not love us, want us, NEED us.
For women who did not look like this the best option was to compare and judge others, as this surely led to us being ‘better than’ the other person.
We were brought up with the underlying notion that women are good for sex. And sometimes, little upstart women would make a difference to the world, but that was against the odds. Of course our mothers and fathers didn’t tell us these things. They told us we could be anything we wanted to be, yet had we said we wanted to be a fireman ~ “oh there are better jobs for you than that. Be a lawyer, doctor, the world is your oyster, we fought so hard to get you here.”
Our society tells us differently EVERY SINGLE DAY. There is a fine line between a woman owning her sexuality and a woman playing into the hands of society to get more publicity. And yet a woman who chooses to own her sexuality by staying modest is thought of as being oppressed.
This all keeps us playing small. Women are more than 50% of the population, yet we control less that 2% of the power. Having said that, women aren’t really interested in power… not the way men are, it would seem.
In the old days women had each other, men fought in wars, or tended the farm, or worked in the cities and women had each other. I am sure there was bitching, and we know there were classes to contend with, but the dire necessity of needing each other won out.
I am quite cynical of society, I know this, maybe I shouldn’t be, I know many women who were raised in this society and turned out okay, in fact, I meet more and more every day. Women who choose to lift each other up, not knock each other down. Women who are loving and kind to each other, not harsh and controlling. Women who choose love over fear.
Our sisterhood is a wave rising across the nations, and we can thank social media in a big way for this wave’s momentum. The connections that have been forged, the friendships made and the way we have connected is incredible and has the opportunity to be enlightening in its own way. And yet it can also be cripplingly alienating and soul destroying.
Sisters, we have a chance to change how society is. Stop buying into it. Start working on ways to live in love and look to lifting each other, not dragging each other through the mud. By this, I mean, actively DON’T judge another woman. Yes even if she feeds her daughter Doritos in the morning for breakfast. We don’t know her path, we don’t know where she has been and we certainly don’t know her lessons.
It is true that the day I gave up judging other women was the best day of my life. My ego began to take a backseat and my Soul could really speak. I stopped trying to be someone I was not, and suddenly I knew people liked me for how I am. And if they don’t, our paths were not meant to be walked together.
Recently I went to a festival, one which many people have called a ‘hippy festival’. And in a way it was. But whatever it was, it was pure bliss. Every woman there was there with an open heart, an open mind and wanted to connect, love and be loved. And the vibes that came from that day continued to reverberate through my life for weeks. The bliss that comes when you find people like you is magical. (You know I love magic!)
It is my dream to bring these types of connection nights to my local area, too many women are feeling they are on this journey alone, when there are truly so many of us and connection only helps and makes us stronger inside. I am blessed to be drawing my tribe to me as we speak, and I know that there are many more beautiful souls out there that I can connect with.
So as we move forward into an even more loving and supportive society, how can we be even more supportive of each other? What can you do today to help bring our society be based on love?
