As I post this I will be on a plane heading back from the USA where I will have met all of my sisters from the Sistership Circle Facilitators workshop/retreat. I was asked by one of these gorgeous women to write about what Awakening to the Feminine meant to me and I'd like to share with you what I wrote....
"Awakening to the Feminine for me has been a gradual process followed by a massive push from the universe!! I can honestly say that it is the gift of Motherhood that has brought me to this awakening process I’m receiving by being a part of the Sistership Circle.
The gradual part has been growing up experiencing life as a female with all of the ups and downs it brings, the growing awareness of my soul within and connection to my higher-self.
It's been a big day! My baby boy Billy had his first day of school today. He's not even 5 yet! Another 3 weeks and he will be, my little Piscean prince. He is the youngest of our 3 boys, the eldest being Jordan at 14, then Sampson at 9 and our Billy-boy at 4 (almost 5).
To all of you mothers out there that watched your little babe go off to school today, I feel you. I didn't think it would be that hard but there you go.
You know it really hit me last night as I watched him fall asleep, he's my last one and he's moved into a completely new stage of life. I posted about it on Facebook saying that I was feeling very emotional and that I was soaking up his preciousness as I gave him Reiki energy and watched him fall asleep. He had gone to bed but then came out and said I think I need some Reiki mum - he's such a babe, tells me "I love you all around my body and in my heart and all around my chakras"!!
Today is the New Moon in Aquarius and tomorrow we start a stage of Mercury in Retrograde (refer to my Facebook post share of Mystic Mamma for more info) so I felt called to tell you this story now.
I spoke in my last blog a little about workplace bullying that I had experienced. To help myself heal from this I wrote a story about it from the third person perspective on a couple of pieces of paper and for whatever reason I kept it. As so often happens the universe has managed to deliver these pages back to me as I was sorting through some stuff last week. Here is what I wrote....
Are you tired of not feeling good enough?
Are you sick of being last on the list?
Are you asking yourself "What about me? Where have I gone?"
Are you feeling spiritually bankrupt?
As a woman it's in your nature and it is part of your feminine essence to love, support, nurture and care for others. You are always giving. But what about receiving? That is part of your feminine essence too. When is the last time you received love and support? When is the last time YOU put yourself first?
"It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life...and I'm feeling FREE!"
I always find the New Year so refreshing, this year is no exception, however I have approached this new year in a different way.
2014 to me, was a year of Transformation. I went deep within my cocoon, peeled back the layers, had a good look around, then accepted and loved the real, authentic me - all of me. The shadow and the light. I accepted there is nothing wrong with me, nothing to fix, nothing to make better. Sure I've got stories that try to limit me just like you, only now I stare them straight in the face and say "I see you" and you don't scare me anymore. So as I was journaling my reflection and review of 2014 I wrote this line that I feel really proud of:
Hey! How are you? I love sharing, I love talking, I love connected from that honest raw place of truth that's within all of us - know what I mean? Yes? Well babe you're gonna love checking in with this blog.
