This post is important. Important because women are being called to step up into their full expressions as the awakening on our planet spirals out globally, and as we build a new world with very different foundations. We as women have an important purpose in all of this – to foster collaboration from the heart and soul; to speak out on behalf of the planet, our children, communities, and each other; and to express every bit of the creative genius that we are holding onto inside letting go of the fear that no one will recognize it for what it is – wisdom much needed right now!
Given all of this we cannot proceed, or pass GO as the game of monopoly states, until we heal the relationships with the women in our lives. I believe that if we do not have closure or understanding with those that we have had challenges or break down of relationship with, then we are bringing our wounds to the table, and not releasing those that have been close to us, and ourselves, into fullest expression.
As women we bond easily, fiercely, deeply, and often tenderly. Relationships with other women are at the core of our thriving and full acceptance of ourselves. Without healthy relationships with women we fall apart within and without. Our culture, community, and world suffers…and so do we.
This week, as many of you know, there was a repairing of a relationship that took place
between two very powerful women – Oprah Winfrey and Iyanla Vanzant. Feminine Power hosted that very same day a conversation with Iyanla on “Woman to Woman: How to Heal Our Relationship Breakdowns with Each Other”.
I bring you the link here to listen to the conversation as I feel that it is vitally important that we do this work with each other first!
Late in 2010 I lost a friend that was very dear to me. She simply stopped communicating with me after 2 years of a meaningful friendship and many adventures. At first I attempted to create story – in other words think of the ways in which I might had offended her, or figure out why she did not want to relate any longer. I left phone messages, wrote e-mails and left a letter at her doorstep at Christmas time…but no response.
Then I realized that she was not going to respond, and that it was time to do my own internal healing around the loss, move out of any story, recognize that there was no longer a resonance which kept the relationship alive and growing, forgive myself and her, and let go. There was of course sadness around the loss of the relationship…but what really hurt was that we could not come together, face our fears, and deeply listen to each other with an open heart and mind – either for closure, or for expansion of relationship with each other or with ourselves.
This is what Iyanla speaks to in the conversation on this link. Take the time to listen in and reflect on whether there are any relationships with women in your life right now that require letting go of the fear that you carry and with courage (action taken from the heart) telling your truth.
