I have known in my heart for some time now that it is the power of the feminine collective that will ultimately create the greatest change in this world.
To see this an action on a large scale throughout my recent trip to Fiji at the Ultimate Girls Week Away retreat was mind blowing.
During the first day as everyone arrived I could see that they were unsure of themselves and uncertain as to what their place amongst the group would be.
Women had come from all over the world and many of them had travelled on their own.
As I met and spoke to each one hearing their stories of where they had come from and why they were there I noticed several things.
Many had never given themselves permission to go on such a journey before and they had to go through a lot just to be there.
Some were there with friends or family and were exited for whatever transformations were going to occur for them.
Others were so out of their comfort zones that they felt that perhaps they didn’t really belong there.
Of course all of what they were feeling was completely natural.
This however was not to last for long.
As each day arrived I witnessed the opening of the hearts of many.
Women fast became friends and bonded over the sharing of their stories.
Women worked together in groups and shared intuitive movement of the body, creativity and facing fears.
Women meditated together and tuned into the voice of their own intuition.
Women supported each other with hugs, shoulders to cry on, tissues, words of encouragement and a collective bubble of unconditional love was formed.
I watched as women voiced their deepest desires and gave themselves permission to do whatever that may be.
We as a collective have been brainwashed with competition and comparison from the day that we are born.
We are told through media and our own experiences that we cannot trust women to have our backs.
We are taught that women will be jealous of us if we are successful.
We are taught that our partners are not safe if we befriend a woman who embraces her divine feminine and is comfortable in her own skin and sexuality.
We are taught that we won’t get ahead if we are not attractive enough therefore we unconsciously are mistrusting of an attractive woman.
We are taught that it is not attractive to be overly confident so we dim our light.
We are conditioned that unless we look a certain way we can never be happy or loved.
We are brainwashed that it is the survival of the fittest out there and therefore collaboration of any form will only weaken you and prevent you from succeeding.
We are fed so much bullshit from the marketing world that we should buy this, eat that, drink this, weight this much, wear this thing, have this coloured hair, have this perfume, use this product, have this treatment, don’t do this do that.
The list is actually endless and it is all designed to keep us feeling less than which only results in us remaining separated and isolated from the collective.
Women have been told for a millennia that we are bad, dangerous, untrustworthy and unworthy just so that we can be kept separate and keep our mouths shut.
This is a belief that is dying by the minute as women around the world unite together in support of each other.
What I have experienced first hand throughout my week away with women from all over the world, from all walks of life, from all backgrounds is this.
Women thrive on community connection.
When women feel supported they give themselves the permission they need to step into their own truths.
When women are surrounded by loving support they shine brighter than the Milky Way.
When women come together in unity there is a sisterhood that is formed that no outside influence can diminish.
When women come together magic truly does happen.
We are all so hardwired for connection, in fact we will wither and die without it.
There was a love revolution that I believe was started in Fiji.
Every single day I was so filled with joy and love that I felt that my heart would surely burst.
Women all around me were open, smiling, warm and ready to support anyone around them who was in need.
We chanted together, we worked together, we ate together, we danced, we laughed, we sang, we swam, we healed and we loved.
There is no mistaking the fact that traditionally it was women to ran the tribes.
I am also aware that this too was flawed on some level as we cannot deny either the feminine or the masculine aspect of ourselves.
In embodying both the divine feminine and the divine masculine and come together in unity women can absolutely change the world.
I was on my way to breakfast one morning feeling so much love, joy and gratitude in my heart.
As I was reflecting on how incredible it was to see each woman shining from within with self love it instantly dawned on me.
We traditionally do not think lovingly or supportively of ourselves, in fact if we were to be completely honest the way that we treat ourselves really is abusive.
On this morning In this moment of clarity I saw a world where every single woman appreciated, accepted and loved herself for exactly who she was.
It was a wondrous moment because what was revealed to me was that if this in fact happened it would end all violence against women, we would all live in a world of peace, harmony love and unity.
This is how powerful the Divine Feminine Collective is.
So lets begin today by creating a ripple effect in this world that creates lasting and positive change in our world.
Start today by accepting all of who you are.
Start today by supporting a sister or creating your own sister circle.
Start today by daring to love yourself like no other has before
Start today by giving yourself permission to do whatever it is that your heart desires.
Start today by being brave enough to step out of your comfort zone.
Start today by choosing to fully live this life
Start today by knowing that you are worthy of all that life has to offer you
Start today by embracing your divine feminine.
