As I reflected on this topic and pondered how I would bring this message to women, I had to go deep into my own heart. What is spiritual health and how do I translate the many years of deep exploration and seeking of my own truth and health on all levels, body, mind, soul and spirit.
There has always been a calling, a desire to know who I was from a very young age. Due to a birth trauma I almost died from, it would make sense to want to understand why I chose life. When someone faces death at any age, it usually becomes part of their life’s work or purpose; to guide others to help them connect to their own divine essential nature.
The common thread that runs through all of creation is our spirit. As we grow older we begin to lose that divine connection, and we start looking outside of ourselves turning to the world. By the time we are about eight years old our ego is already formed. From there we continue to cover our spirit and block ourselves because of our desire nature and lack of connection. In addition, most of us, if not all of us, have had some sort of childhood trauma. This trauma also plays a huge role in contributing to us feeling cut off and separated.
In the last year we have been challenged in ways like never before; our core has been shaken and old ways of being don’t seem to fit anymore. As I questioned these things and look deeper to understand, I ask myself what is the wisdom we need to know at this time.
We have fallen asleep, and our spirits are calling us to wake up, to go deeper, to know who we are and why we are here in these unprecedented times. It is a time to ask ourselves what is missing and what is needed to fulfill our lives in a way that brings more joy, love, connection and to know who we are in the deepest way.
Just like any tools or practices we do on a day-to-day basis to keep ourselves healthy, we also can learn ways that nourish our spirit and soul.
When we strengthen our spiritual connection, it builds resilience and spiritual backbone, which is so important when faced with challenges, personal and collectively. So how do we strengthen this backbone? First, we have to love ourselves, connect to our innate wisdom, develop inner strength, self-awareness, daily spiritual practice, igniting our creativity and knowing who we are and most important to develop a deeper connection to the divine essence that lives inside each one of us.
Women carry a certain light that is part of creation. It is different than the light men carry. Women can tend the garden, cook a meal, heal a wound and wipe a tear while holding the hearts of her loved ones. A woman knows how to do this innately and yet there comes a time when she burns out, loses her patience, or doesn’t feel fulfilled and is running on empty.
How can we live a life that is in more alignment of with who we are? To become better mothers, partners, friends, sisters and daughters? First, we have to tend to our own garden, our own wounds and feed our spirit to receive the nourishment that it needs to heal. We need to be honest and look at all areas of our life to find balance, wholeness and truth.
The time is here and the time is now for us to step up and heal the wounds we have been carrying for our whole lives, for our ancestors and for the generations to come after us. It is time to realize our true nature is not outside of us but inside of us. We have to listen deeper so we can hear the call and respond with reverence and an understanding of what is being asked of us in this moment, in this breath, in these times. Are we listening?
Please take my hand and let’s breathe this breath together as one heart. As we hold the heart of the world we form a sisterhood, a new beginning, a way to support each other as we journey through this life. The world needs healing and most of all love for ourselves, for our children, our planet and each other. Women are the mothers,wisdomkeepers, guardians, crones, sages, medicine women and healers. We are being called to heal ourselves and return to who we were created to be, and from this place we can heal Mother Earth and all of her creation.
