I want to swear loudly, long and without curtailing myself for fear of disapproval. I want to throw a majestic level tantrum that registers on the richter scale, and to which the Gods really get the message ‘she means it!’ I want to gather up all the perceived inadequacy in the world (the stuff that gnaws and claws at our creative innards, and sneers successfully at our tentative self belief) and burn it, yelling and dancing naked with wild cellulite, ignoring abandon whilst I’m at it.
ENOUGH with being stopped in our tracks by our fear of others judgment, I’m just sick of it; sick of feeling the insta-limitation of projected self- rejection, the acidic crawl of old shame with its fingers around my throat and its feet in my heart. For God’s sake! How many of us can grow so far into our fullness, only to be tripped, side swiped or denounced by voices, feelings, learnt patterns or totally unhelpful misplaced memories from the past that inform us that disaster is imminent if we dare to believe in ourselves. Well, f*^k it.
Beloved TreeSisters, the gift given to me in this lifetime is to drop my awareness down into my womb and bring through the spirits and knowing of the Earth – I am honoured to be sharing myself with you here. Feeling every part of my vulnerability and my edges at this. Sometimes quaking at being seen, sometimes walking with a smile ocean wide.
Let’s talk about why the Womb…
The Earth is Mother Nature's Womb.
Once, we listened to Her, we honoured Her.
We honoured her fierce power, her spirit, her unconditional love, her nourishment.
Just over four years ago, three words came to me: Truth and Dare. It was the period in my life when I hit my personal high limit switch for both the illusion of my own making and the illusion of our collective making. I had reached a turning point, and began to wake up, with a vengeance...
On this day of courage, I want to share my own story on how the Treesisters Map of 5 Choices has helped me connect with mine so that I can practice expressing my feminine power in this world without fear.
About 5 years ago, I started breaking up inside. I underwent what felt like a rapid transition from mostly happy and successful business owner into what I judged as an emotional, spiritual, mental and physical train wreck of a human being.
