Drop of water

Each lesson life offers us can lead us further down the road to richer self-awareness and better living if we choose to listen, integrate the learning and accept the journey as an essential part of reaching our final destination. But do most of us take the time to see the ariel view- the full picture of what is really unfolding? Many say there is no time for that: it is hard enough keeping up with the day to day. Having set up The Essential Feminine ® Company over the past 2 years I recently felt the need to slow down and have a sabbatical – a regrouping. I took time over the past 8 months to journey to Boulder Colorado – at the foothills of the great Rocky Mountains. Nature has always been a great teacher for me and during this break it has been the most amazing gift. It taught me so much. I learned that I need to take time to reflect- daily on what is most important to me and where on each day- I need to place my precious life force and attention.  I learned that I hear more when I am still and I learned that the richness of family and close friends is something I cannot live without.

The biggest lesson of all has been around the daily practices and care that I allow myself- when I am going slow enough to listen I can hear what I really need. For me it is essential to have a daily rhythm and balance or I spin out. I guess you could say that sometimes when we create our dreams we experience a birth and after birth even though we adore our baby – we still need to come home to ourselves. So what does all this mean to you and your life? I think you have to answer this question for yourself .Here are a few questions I had to ask myself to put many of the pieces back together in my own life.

  • Where are things working for me now?
  • What needs to change or be different?
  • How well am I taking care of my self- body mind and spirit?
  • Does the work I do satisfy me and align with my values?
  • What is next for me?
  • What is most important to me right now- is it in my life?

The time I took in nature and contemplation – gave me the reflection time I need to write a course that reflects an amazing journey- the one I have just completed myself- I call it the Elixir Course. If it resonates with you let me know- I would like to take you on this journey with a small group of women.

Do join me on – if the time is right for you- take a look- http://theessentialfeminine.com/shop#life-elixir

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.
