I was rereading a blog that one of our most prolific bloggers Judie Fouchaux did a while back and was inspired by it. I guess because I have myself fully re-submerged myself in my own– Awakening the Essential Feminine Claiming your Influential Power. I have just completed designing our new course –The Essential Feminine Facilitator Training- http://theessentialfeminine.com/events. I am so excited as the course has within it –the very ability to transform the world as we know it today!
The facilitator Training is designed for therapists, counselor’s doctors and women who serve women and for women who want to create circles where women can learn about specific assets that we naturally have — that are very much needed in our world. Join us for a four week certified training beginning on March 15th…. You may never see the world in the same way again!
Judie blog that I mentioned – quite inspiring!:
Often we live our lives busy with the details and overlooking the big picture. We are making things happen, taking care of business, ourselves, our families. We overlook some things in favor of what appears the next necessary thing to do. In this way, important parts of us can fall asleep or can hide rather like dust bunnies in the corners of our nature. These are the parts of ourselves that Maureen Simon addresses in her new book “Awakening The Essential Feminine: Claiming Your Influential Power.”
Impossible! Not so. As bright young women fairly sure of ourselves we move out into a world which is dominated by a masculine mind set. Sometimes we are actually told, “You don’t think the way I do, with the implication that the way “I do” is the superior way to think. After all it is “logical”. Looking around at society it does seem to be the preferred way of thinking. With that influence around us, it is no wonder that we have devalued our gifts, our natural way of being in the world to take on a costume that all too soon becomes our reality.
However, by going in that direction, we are leaving behind valuable gifts that were meant to be a balance in the world, a balance we need now more than ever. As Maureen points out, these gifts were given to us in greater proportion as women. They are as important to our being women as the other attributes that differentiate us from men. They include our way of thinking.
Women’s thinking is naturally collaborative, inclusive, interconnected, intuitive, empathetic, and flexible. Her brain makes it so. When Professor Higgins asks, “Why can’t women think like a man?” he overlooks a basic fact. They weren’t meant to think like men. We were meant to think like women and bring balance and harmony in the world.
Now with the world in such chaos it is time to awaken our dormant attributes. By awakening The Essential Feminine within we can begin Claiming Our Influential Power.
