Being empowered is to take ownership of and celebrate the pairs of complimentary forces that sustain my life: The Earth and Sky; The Sun and Moon; The Light and Shadow; Harmony and Conflict; Blessings and Challenges; Freedom and Limiting circumstances; Love and Fear… It is knowing that if I should be careless, that part of me that confuses me and steers me to be lost will take the helm. While I maintain my commitment to move with care and focus then that aspect of me that fills me with peace and joy will take the helm.
Being empowered is accepting and owning who we are, with all my Light and all my Shadow. That I resound with what I resonate and desire and yearn for what I desire and yearn. And it is good to have my own tune and not mimic the false resonance and whims that trend.
Being empowered is to remember who I am … and choose to be faithful to my own identity, my own pulse, my own criteria, understanding, sensations and perceptions, with my own values and my own life sense.
Being empowered is to recognize and tend to my own needs in lieu of waiting for someone to guess at and then provide them for me. It is to honor my capabilities as I do my limitations, it is being grateful for the degree of autonomy I have achieved, the joy of reminding myself that independence is always relative because I am intricately a part of the whole, along with all other sentient beings. Being empowered is to embrace the humility, which allows me to ask and to receive.
Being empowered is to take charge of my inner little girl, inner princess, inner mother, inner warrior, inner sage, inner magician. It is to know and accept that my inner archetypes gift me with their healing wisdom as they are their deep wounds, achievements and those to come. It is to know that these are not only inside of me, but recognize that they are in all women and like a mirror, reflect back to me who I am.
Being empowered is to recognize that I am an atom of a wondrous molecule called the Human Race, which in turn is part of a cell called the Terrestrial Animal Kingdom. Which in turn is part of the tissue called Pachamama, our beloved Blue Planet, beloved Earth. Which is part of the indivisible pulse of the system that governs our Father Star, our beloved Sun. Which belongs to the vastness of the powerful Milky Way, the visible face of a little corner of the infinite Universe in which my Being is navigating its emotional training.
Being empowered is to feel that I am, that we are a part of the Mother Goddess and her Creation, that she exists in the love from Mother Earth, in the wisdom of the Elements, in the strength of Mother Nature. And beyond the names that I choose to name her or the concepts I choose to maintain to comprehend the essential conscience. It is to marvel, love, honor and to respect my home that is Earth in which I have been engendered.
Being empowered is to know that my body is a part of our Mother Earth and is given to my care with full trust and complete love.
Being empowered is to be female, driven by the pure wisdom of instinct, which rejoices in the sacred red elixir that confirms that I am the guardian of life. Being empowered is to accept that I am on this blessed Earth to accept and model myself on the sacred art of joy. To be empowered is to be a woman, supported by my ability to differentiate, recognize and integrate. This gives me the freedom and courage to choose to integrate (unite) rather than disintegrate, move forward in lieu of stagnating. To be empowered is to gather the threads of my instinct, emotions and reason, to weave the beautiful mandala of my intuition. To be empowered is toward co-creating, together with fertile, loving Mother Earth so that my feminine-female-goddess-consciousness flourishes.
Be that for yourself
