Today’s blackboards wisdom is:
“Everything we see in the world is the creative work of women” – Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Today I would like to really celebrate women and the ‘sisterhood’ that bonds the feminine together on this lovely planet…..
The Wellbeing Centre seems to be a meeting place of so many extraordinary women – all with a wonderfully unique contribution to make to the whole. There’s the friendly breastfeeding group that meets on a friday morning here – Newbury Breast Friends – and a lively support group for Asian Women on Monday mornings. And then there’s the general network of the therapists here – many of whom are women – supporting each other and the visitors to the centre. I feel blessed to be supported by this lovely energy and see it rippling out into the community in such a beneficial way.
As women embrace the fullness of who they are as individuals, they may find themselves supporting other women, helping others to reach the level of inner comfort and outer freedom that they themselves have found. Among those who are less sure of themselves and their place in the world, it may be more common to criticize other women than to seek their help. But there are things that a woman can only learn from another woman, as there are things about being a man that can only be learned from other men. We all recognise that we have much to learn from each other regardless of gender, and sometimes we could all use a supportive role model that gives us a more precise example of what and who we can become.
There was a time when women stood together in a bond of sisterhood, women supporting women. It is only natural that the pendulum swings out of balance for a while so that we may have the experience of what we do not want. It is up to women to bring the pendulum back into balance and bring back the sacred sisterhood we yearn for at our core.
If we envision a world where women support each other and help each other find their place in an ever-changing world, then we can become the change we want to see. Jealousy, envy, criticism, and judgment are refuges for the insecure. As we help others to become self-assured, we create a world in which all people help each other, regardless of gender. Only women can make the change in how women are seen and understood, not just by other women but by the world at large. The way we speak about each other to other women and to the men in our lives informs everyone to treat us with the respect that all women, and all people, deserve.
Think of three women who are special in your life – who embody ‘the Goddess’ energy we love so much – and know that they are in your life as a reflection, a resonance…….mirroring that which you are too……..Namaste Sister…;-)
