"Today, the reason we haven't found our grail, the key to who we are as women, is because we look for it in worlds of false power, the very worlds that took it away from us in the first place. Neither men nor work can restore our lost scepter. Nothing in this world can take us home. Only the radar in our hearts can do that, and when it does, ... 'We will light up like lamps, and the world will never be the same again.' "~Marianne Williamson Our key lies in our ability to walk in grace as women; confident in our presence, aware that our essence heals, knowing that our wisdom comes from within - not from outside, and that our souls carry the vibration of the worlds, all the worlds and we can call forth the birthing of what this world needs now. We are ready to be of service with our gifts and callings!
Our power as women burns in every ember, it flows through the waters of the land, it is shed in the tears of the weary and we know this, we know this. It is time for us as women to take the stand that it is our time to be no longer the shrinking violet, to be no longer the suit clad woman of business jockeying her way through the corporations…they don’t deserve us! We claim our right to our seeds of this earth, to the right to get dirty and be strong, the right to be beautiful by standards of truth, not impossibilities and to breathe life back into the dreams of our children and the lessons of our ancestors.
We have not forgotten, we have not lost sight of and we have not stopped dancing. We drum with the rainstorms, we rage with the thunder, we listen in the silence of the falling snow, and we sweat in the heat of the sun. We remember. We have not forgotten. And we will not back down, be moved, step away or crawl from. No. We only know how to stride forward, pause to listen, hold with grace, embrace with might and push with intention. We no longer look to false power or imitation hopes. We know the darkness, we embrace the shadows, and we have made friends with the night and its energies and made them our own.
When one knows the darkness this well, then the light is ever ready. The fires burn bright in the heart of every woman and she is ready, ready to blaze the path that connects the worlds of all, to inspire those who struggle and to be the presence needed for the change to begin. We are ready. We are ready to model for those who are still learning. We are ready to be the teachers, the healers, the midwives, the shamans, the dancers, the poets, and the visionaries of now.
