Many of us find ourselves swirling in a sea of confusion—deciding how to respond to all of the disturbing changes around us. Do I fight this (fill in the blank)? How do I hold a loving space for something new to emerge? What on earth do I do?
How do we experience a joyful, peaceful, loving, hopeful, serene world? We feed that world—with our highest and best thoughts, words, and actions. That is the world we will actualize—and we are almost there.
If focusing on all the bad news we keep hearing in our country and in our world would help and make things better, then I would focus on it all day long! But keeping attention on the negative, dishonorable, and fearful does not make anything better; it actually makes its influence expand. We have the power within us to shift the energy from fear to love, and it's simpler than we may think.
In our lives, some bridge crossings will return us home, yet changed. Other times we may traverse one bridge and then another and another, inspiring more and more transformation. We may choose not to return to our original destination (or selves). The key to any transformation is choosing a destination, making the journey, and using inner awareness as our trusted GPS.
Women's voices, ways, actions, and the feminine divine perspective are especially necessary now--because women are equipped and ready to heal the pain of injustice, disrespect, and inequality, and intentionally apply a soothing balm of kindness, compassion, non-judgment, and love. And now women are awakening to the idea that their own personal transformationfirst is key and women's circles and gatherings support them in that quest.
