Our assignment as 21st century change makers
If you watch the news these days it is easy to be overcome with fear, anxiety, and confusion. Yet something that transcends the politics and conflicts of our times is arising.
A great awakening is unfolding and I'm thrilled to speak to this on International Women's Day.
While our anxieties may be rising about the great complexities we face politically, technologically, societally, and environmentally, our consciousness and resolve to DO something is also elevating.
I believe that by virtue of being alive at this time, we have been given an assignment to be peacefully powerful stewards for our children, families, communities, and planet.
I am holding the third of four calls later today with an intimate circle of women who are on what I'm calling the Awakened Warrior Journey. We are currently exploring self-healing practices and rituals that are designed to help each woman fill herself up with the energy, vision, courage, and resolve to stand strong for the change she wishes to see in the world.
This looks different for every one of us. For some it's personal. For others it's professional. And for others it's political.
What matters most to me is that we are AWAKE and living with courage.
I shared a few weeks back that my Word of the Year is FREEDOM.
And when I feel into what it's going to take to live with sovereignty, peace, and freedom in the turbulent world we're navigating right now, I believe that our own inner healing and awakening is at the forefront of HOW to move forward.
I believe that the inner work of facing our own shadows, fears, prejudices, anxieties, and feelings of helplessness is a nonnegotiable part of our responsibility and potential moving forward.
I believe that a fierce and continuous devotion to eradicating our doubts that we aren't "smart enough," "powerful enough," or "tough enough" to make a difference is nonnegotiable.
I believe that the mystical, magical parts of us that we were so awake to as children must come alive again so that we may bolster ourselves with the awe, wonder, and gratitude that sustains us.
I believe that we must dare to transcend into higher levels of consciousness and move with our fear so that we may access the creativity and innovation that allows us to envision a NEW WAY.
I believe that we must live in devotion to coming home to ourselves so that we can relocate true freedom, peace and safety, the kind that is untouchable and uninfluenced by religion or regime.
Because when we're in continuous devotion to the freedom, peace, and safety that resides in our sovereign souls, we untether ourselves from our presupposed delusions of safety, comfort, and complacency that we got by with when we were sleeping.
It is time to be AWAKE. It is time to be a soulful WARRIOR for our people and our planet.
Never before have I more potently felt how much our ability to fight for freedom FOR ALL depends on the freedom we feel WITHIN.
We have the right and responsibility, right here right now, to do the inner work and SHOW UP for the collective.
It's not always pretty or pleasing to speak the truth, but it is the way of the change maker.
May we be peaceful, awakened warriors and continue the legacy of change work that we've been assigned to in the 21st century.
From the bottom of my heart, I believe that you are here to be a part of this powerful, peaceful movement.
With warmth & light,
P.S. I would love to hear from you. What do you sense is holding you back, what do you most desire to stand for in these times, and what healing are you ready to receive so that you can be awake and on cause in your life moving forward? Now is the time is now to live your truth!
