Happy International Women’s Week!
I love being a woman.
I love my hormones and my cycles.
I love my intuition, creative potential, and ability to flow with life.
For several years, I falsely believed I was inferior because I was a woman.
I was told that some people in my family were disappointed because I wasn’t born a boy.
I was told some of our ancestors believed that the birth of a girl didn’t call for as much celebration as the birth of a boy.
As a young adult, I was looked down upon because I chose a more nurturing profession and asserted that becoming a high-flying career woman was not my calling.
I have shed tears over these hurtful revelations and judgments – not just for me, but for women at large. However, I was able to let all the pain go when I set foot on the healing path.
I was also able to forgive everyone who I allowed to hurt me. They must have had their reasons for adopting such beliefs. If they were given an opportunity to explore the depths of womanhood or manhood, they most likely would not have taken on such limiting beliefs.
Becoming a healer and learning from several spiritual teachers along the way helped me realise how blessed I am to be born a woman! Not to say that men aren’t blessed. The Divine Masculine is equally unique too.
As a woman, I now see how beautiful it is to be an intuitive, a creator, and a nurturer.
I marvel at the womb space within my body and the fact that it feels like a miniature creative powerhouse of the Universe.
I have learnt to celebrate my hormones and the roller coaster ride they kickstart every month.
I have learnt to honour my cycles rather than groan about how terrible they feel.
I experience great delight in being a channel for creative inspiration and projects.
I experience the subtle sweetness of the Divine Feminine in my roles as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, healer, and teacher.
I celebrate every aspect of my womanhood today and feel proud to be a woman.
I wish you a very happy International Women’s Week and Women’s Day on March 8th !
Remember – You are beautiful, powerful, and magical in more ways than one.
You are a living breathing embodiment of the Divine Feminine!
