In the past few years, I have praised sisterhood & craved more of it. My Honor The Feminine Podcast was established through “sisterhood.” So why then Fuck Sisterhood?
Sisterhood, as it is playing out today, comes from a reaction to the wounded masculine & wounded feminine energies that have swirled around us for centuries. The idea of sisterhood was to call in the divine feminine energy & to rise up together. The pendulum swung from the wounded energies to a love & light sisterhood as a reaction to the wounds women have faced for millennial…wounds that we carry in our cells. The rise of sisterhood is a reaction to this deep wounding & an overcorrection. Perhaps, a necessary overcorrection to usher in a truer, more powerful balance on the horizon.
We are in a time of rapid expansion. So, copy I wrote even back in July no longer is aligned or rings true for me today.
I am a no to love & light sisterhood.
I am a no to the spiritual bypassing of sitting in a circle & swaying and calling that healing.
I am a no to calling women into circle to make flower crowns & then when real issues arise out of our wounds not creating space to truly clear that wounding.
I am a no to pretending that all is roses & butterflies in sisterhood & that there is no place for the shadow & to truly open ourselves up to the pain & messiness of each other.
I am a no to brushing the pickliness of our human relationships, our friendships with women, under the rug just so everyone can leave circle feeling lighter on the surface.
I am a yes to powerful women coming together to support each other.
I am a yes to each woman stepping more fully into her true power & her gifts.
I am a yes to coming together & addressing the true, messy feelings that come up as an avenue to clearing.
I am a yes to clearing our old stories to create space for more of our divine essence to shine through.
I am a yes to facing each other & loving each other through truth.
As women, we have been scratching the surface of our true power. There may have been a time where just coming together was enough to create a shift. Now, we are called to more. We are called to excavate our wounds so they can become scars, instead of masking our wounds in flowers & rainbows.
This is a call for all of us…women & men…to heal together. It is a call to feel into the divine feminine & sacred masculine polarity of energies that lives within each of us & begin weaving them together.
It is a call to speak your truth…to shine your unique gifts…to play big.
The women that have come & stayed in my life are not afraid to remind me of my gifts & how far I have come. They are also not afraid to turn me toward my shadow, my old stories & tell me the truth.
I have watched as we together grow, change & expand rapidly. I want more of this!
