Fearless

What if “impossible” is a wall
YOU build around your dreams?

Would you be willing to tear it down?

-Tammy Vitale

I love what Tammy says in the quote above!  Seeing “impossible” as something that is self created inside by our minds is very possibly exactly what happens.

There are many women that have lived before us, and are living now, that have either torn the barrier down or never built it in the first place.  Perhaps the wall was built of others expectations?!

Take some time to investigate what you are calling impossible today and imagine that you have indeed built a fence around it.  Is it a dream that burns inside of you, or keeps coming back to divinely nudge you one more time?

Are you willing to take the pieces of the barrier down one by one, or even with fierce passion all at once….to reveal what your heart knew all along – that “impossible” is a construct dressed in fear, void of self love,  and two letters too many.  Take the “im” away and become fearless in taking the first step towards the dream that has called you here.  It is time….

Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek & find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~Rumi

Two Resources For Practicing Being Fearless:

http://5wcw.org/  SIGN THE PETITION AND BECOME INVOLVED!!
“UN Women and a 5th UN World Conference on Women is a natural fit, a synergy between the two that would raise consciousness and funds for the benefit of women and the development of women’s leadership at every level of society. Since it takes 3 years to organize, a target date of 2015 would be the 20th anniversary of the Beijing conference, the first since the internet and globalization, a time to network a new generation of women leaders. Reaching a tipping point would make it possible to carry out the Beijing Platform for Action, the Millennium Development Goals, and the Security Council resolutions on Women, Peace, and Security. A world that is safe and sustainable would become possible.”  -Jean Shinoda Bolen, speaking for 5WCW.

Strength Of A Woman

I came across this video yesterday and wanted to pass it on today to all women as it is a fun way to celebrate all that it is to be a woman, not just a mother!  Catchy tune that I immediately started to sing and dance to!!

So many strengths in being a woman!  If we will daily remember our worth, act out of that embodied space,  and remind each other of our strengths….the world would shift in a moment!

You were once wild here.

                      Don’t let them tame you!

Women and Power

Maya Angelou

This video speaks for itself!  As you listen to each woman, remember that you too have a part to play in this global transformational shift.   We are being invited as women to examine the powerful creative expressions that we are holding inside and are being asked NOW to take action in whatever form is wanting to be birthed through us.

I invite you to go to Omega’s website as well to see other videos of keynote talks by some distinguished faculty at Omega Women’s Institute.  We all inspire and inform each other!!

http://www.eomega.org/omega/womens-institute/

Omega’s annual Women & Power conference is one of the most celebrated women’s gatherings in the world, unique in its rich diversity of speakers, performers, and participants. The conference is dedicated to empowering women to bring hope, healing, and change into their own lives and to the world around them.

Last year, the conference was a call-out to women of all ages and backgrounds to become the leaders we have been waiting for. Whether you are a professional, activist, volunteer, student, artist, mother, spiritual seeker, or social visionary, it is time for us to dig deep, retrieve our authentic voice and values, and lead with courage and heart—at home, work, and in the world.”
