You are a Powerful Woman

So you have more cellulite and carry more weight than before, and your skin may be losing its elasticity and wrinkles may form. Your eyes may be sunken and bags beneath your eyes become darker. And outer influences pressure you on how you should look, parent, and be in relationship… How a woman should look like in the world, but it falls short…. What about how we should ‘be’ in the world. So we try, try to keep up appearances, smile despite screaming on the inside, take on more than we can handle, feel guilty when we want to do something for ourselves. There is something more…. If only you could see the gaze from your eyes and the power they now hold- the essence and the power of a woman that says ‘I know myself and I see things as they are’. The power of a woman that is prepared to have her heart broken to see truth. The power of a woman who is so vulnerable because she knows it to be pure strength bringing suppleness, opening her connection to All….. The power of a woman who accepts things as they are first, really feels everything…. And then, with openness, with compassion she steps up and allows the energy within to guide her as she surrenders over to becoming a channel of grace that is so needed now in this world. The power of a woman can connect tribes, can love barriers and bring them down, can nourish those who thirst for more by her mere presence and embodiment of that ‘more’ directing them back to themselves, can heal old wounds which never have a chance to scab and become a scar by simply witnessing, loving and validating them all. The power of a woman is needed, do not forget that. So please, cellulite may be present, wrinkles, saggy skin, bags underneath the eyes, please remember one thing: You are a powerful woman, we need more of THAT in the world.

With all my love and loads of hope,

Reclaiming the Integrity of Being a ‘Witch’

Something to ponder….

What is a ‘witch’? Where is the truth in this? Is it supposed to LOOK a certain way? BE a certain way?

Is a witch not simply a woman living in her authenticity, living fully, HER OWN WAY? A woman who disregards the ‘rules’ and obligations of the society in which she finds herself? With the living, breathing beauty of ancient myths pulsing through her veins, merging the polar opposites found in everything, and not fitting into any preconceived notion?

The term ‘witch’ has been derogatory for too long!! Let’s reclaim the ‘witch’ and open it to mean ‘wise one’. To do this, we need to trace back where we, yes we, perhaps misused our powers in ways that didn’t exactly assist people on their paths… used them out of greed, jealousy, desire. Now is the time to rise up within self… to own our own SHIT! Be clean, be honest, really put ourselves to the test and have the courage to see our shadows and smell our own stench.

You will not unlock all of your gifts unless you face ALL of this.

Furthermore, I can’t hold back any longer! Too often the modern-day ‘witch’ is so far off the mark – full of rebellion, ego, “magic” that the mind conjures up. This is surface-level shit, attached to the term ‘witch’ and what we’ve been TOLD it should LOOK like.

Where is the authenticity? The honouring, clearing, being in service to and authentically birthing truth of the wise woman in a dying world. We have a responsibility! Heed it and live in freedom, in love, in power, and shift the entire consciousness of the world around you….
