As our world undergoes immense shifts and changes we, as women, are being asked to “step up to the plate” so to speak. Many of us know what it is that we are passionate about and are taking heart based action in that direction, and many more are simply entertaining which path (or paths) they desire to walk down.
What is it that calls to us from within? That call we often ignore while being so busy putting out fires, “making a living”, or being Wonder Woman on all the levels that women actively engage in. There is something called intuition which feels to me to be the soft whisper (and sometimes loud yell) of that essential nature or Divine self that guides, protects, and attempts to inform us of the next steps to take along our unique paths.
I came across an article the other day called Intuition by Danielle Boonstra in which she beautifully and vulnerably addresses the power of intuition by giving an example of when she was at a crossroads in her own life. Within a few days of reading this I was given the opportunity to listen in to my own essential nature who has been attempting to get my full undivided attention for months now.
Attention has certainly been given in measured doses here and there, but it wasn’t until a dear friend Lea Bayles did what is called a Discovery session with me that I realized what belief was sitting on top of the me that is so magnificent that I literally had to put sunglasses on to see her. A blog post arose from this experience entitled “Resistance is Futile and A Doorway to Freedom”.
The point here is that sometimes there are underlying beliefs or patterns that keep us stuck in a “smaller ego self” than who we really are in our fullest expressions. The discovery of these beliefs and patterns appears to be part of our waking up and the journey that we are here for.
The next question is, are we willing to take the next step by showing up in a way that is not only our natural “birth path”, but are we willing to reach out a hand to the woman next to us, or even across the world, to support her in doing the same thing.
Following is a video of women that have taken a step into there fullest selves and given the “smaller ego self” a vacation to a far away place. Yes, it is a journey and one with challenges and pitfalls along the way. However, are we willing to say YES! in any moment to that intuition that says “Go for it!” in the presence of risk and vulnerability?
I, for one, live within those types of moments every single day and it isn’t always easy to get out of your own “smaller self” way. Are you willing to reach out a hand, step back into the circle of your life in the fullest way possible, and bring at least one other woman with you?
We are innately interconnected. Let’s use that very web of life to support each other in lighting up the world within our own lives….. and change our personal and global futures.
