Healing Sisterhood Shadows
Sisterhood isn’t just “love and light” all the time.
It is an opportunity to go deep and get real.
Do you walk with us in our quest to explore these depths and liberate these ancient stories for ourselves, and all our sisters?
Even in our deepest emotion and heartache, we are never truly alone. Let’s pull up our sleeves and do this sacred work, together.
We can explore ourselves in many ways.
Each time we unearth a new realization within, we find a rock we can polish until it becomes a jewel.
These realizations aren’t always pretty.
For example, you may realize that you are jealous of a friend, and this jealousy is holding you back.
You may realize you have been comparing yourself to another woman in your life.
Perhaps you have been judging her, thinking you are better in some way… or perhaps you see her as being absolutely radiant in her talents and gifts, and you put yourself down for not having the same strengths, or for not being as lovable.
Whatever your current feelings are, keep them flowing.
There is much to work with here.
Sometimes, the work can be challenging and deeply confronting.
At times, it takes fierceness and devotion to looking at the parts of ourselves we often bypass because, quite frankly, it can be really uncomfortable.
Other times, we can explore ourselves playfully and gently, with grace and love.
The breakthroughs come in whatever form they are meant to come in. We can explore what feels most nourishing for us.
It is up to us to walk the path of transformation keeping our self-love and self-compassion at the center.
This brings hope and inner-knowing to our hearts, even in the darkest hour.
As women alive at this time on Planet Earth, it is, in a way, our duty to be present with all that arises and continue humbling ourselves so that the transformation can move through us…
Not just for ourselves, but for all of mankind, for future generations, and for the earth herself.
If this is resonating, or if you feel triggered or emotional, follow the sensations in your body.
Allow them to teach you.
Allow them to unfurl through you and find a way through your heart and out into the light.
Dynamics in sisterhood can sometimes be challenging to navigate.
If you are experiencing even the most subtle jealousy, comparison, or competition… you are not alone.
Even open-hearted women with the best intentions feel these feelings. It is completely normal, and it is completely okay.
It doesn’t need to be taboo to talk about.
In fact, voicing these feelings is a part of healing them.
When we speak about our inner process in a safe space, we shed the shame and self-judgment.
Sharing, in itself, can be the release of tension.
It is our responsibility as sisters devoted to doing the work, to look deeply within and choose to see that anything we are triggered by in another sister is truly a reflection of ourselves.
And further… It is an invitation for us to step up into our greatness, and embrace the parts of ourselves that feel petty, unworthy, or unloved.
We are here to learn from one another, and to offer our wisdom from a place that is deeply embodied and rooted in true love and compassion… not just the shell of it.
When we support one another from this place of clear intentions and open, honest hearts, something shifts.
Hope is born.
Hope emerges from a place of trusting that we are in integrity, or that we are walking towards integrity.
We become a deeper part of the solution… and we know and can feel in our bodies that this is what the world needs.
This is part of the revolution which is the rising of the feminine. Together, we process through our shadows and reclaim any power hiding there that we are ready to transform into potent gifts.
If you are feeling any sisterhood shadows such as jealousy, competition, or comparison, consider looking within and seeing where you have work to do.
Additionally, if you are feeling courageous, we encourage you to share your feelings with a sister in a way that is open for communication and healing.
Go deep. Get real. Trust yourself. Trust the journey.
We are with you, breathing beside you on this incredible, deepening path.
We believe in your ability to transform yourself… and together, we transform the world!
