Can you feel the difference when you speak your truth? Do you feel the fibers of your being stretch in recognition? Do you feel your soul expand within at the possibilities that your truth will bring? Do you feel the Universe respond with appreciation and blessings? When you speak your truth, do you hear your ancestors applauding and celebrating throughout time? Do you see your spirit guides shine brighter? When others hear your truth do you see them awaken and come to attention? Do you see how it calls to their truth? Over time and perhaps in some of our childhoods we have been told to play a role. We are often typecast as women to be less of who we are and are meant to be. We find ourselves scripting our words, our songs and our messages to fit this role and our truth is stifled and restrained. In some relationships we dare not speak our truth, for fear it will split it apart. In some situations we hold back from our truth out of fear that it will be shunned. In some lives the truth is so hidden, so unspoken and so unwelcome that it is forgotten.
But to empower a woman to share her truth is one of the most gracious gifts we can share. We can model, we can celebrate and we can support another’s truth, even when it differs from ours. That is not the point. The point is that personal power and beauty are embraced when the truth is shared. The point is wisdom and gifts are offered when we reveal the truth. The point is lives are saved when the truth is allowed. Helping a woman find her truth aligns the planets, brightens the stars, and welcomes the healing of time to all.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes shares, “It is that holy poetry and singing we are after. We want powerful words and songs that can be heard underwater and over land. It is the wild singing we are after, our chance to use the wild language we are learning by heart under the sea. When a woman speaks her truth, fires up her intention and feeling, staying tight with the instinctive nature, she is singing, she is living in the wild breath-stream of the soul. To live this way is a cycle in itself, one meant to go on, go on, go on.”
Bring the truth to your soul, witness the truth of others, celebrate the differences of our truths and recognize the power that is always within the truth. Encourage your daughter’s truth, welcome your sister’s truth, share your mother’s truth, embrace the truth of your grandmothers and great grandmothers and celebrate your truth as often and as proudly as you can.
