The past two weeks has left me amazed and in awe. Why? I have been surrounded by powerful women at every turn and the lessons they have taught me, the A-Ha moments I have experienced and the overwhelming unconditional love I have felt, have filled me with gratitude and inspiration.
This morning, I had to take a minute, and just breath it all in. I wanted to figure out exactly what I had experienced as the ‘power’ that each of these women possessed. They are all so different. They come from different backgrounds, different cultures, they have different careers and are all in different stages of their lives. But they all share one thing, and that is POWER.
I met women who are in business together, working with each other to strengthen their own individual businesses by spreading the word about clean, pure, healthy products which do not damage our bodies and the environment. What made them shine was their passion for health, their passion for the empowerment of women and their passion for life itself!
I spent time with gorgeous women, learning about energy and how we are able to heal our lives, our bodies and our very Being with the beautiful energy the Universe/God bestows on us abundantly. What I experienced here was a gentle power filled with love and compassion and a longing and willingness, to love ourselves unconditionally and to live our purpose to the fullest.
I met women who’s yearning to make a difference is so powerful, that I’m super excited to watch their journeys unfold and their passion take form.
What I have come to realise is that the world is ready for our message. We are all born with a message for this world and the world is ready for your voice! We are not all comfortable with teaching and speaking in front of thousands of people. You might be more comfortable sharing your message one on one by being a comfort to a friend who needs you, teaching your daughter to love herself more than anything or anyone and honour her journey here on Earth by living her passion, or you might be destined for the world stage. Whatever your comfort level is, know that you have an incredible message to share.
The answer I came up with was that they are all joyfully living in gratitude. It really does come down to that. Gratitude raises your vibration, it attracts more of what you are grateful for and it fuels your passion for life. Most often it is gratitude that leads us to uncover our life’s purpose and brings joy and abundance.
So here’s what you can do to strengthen your awesome power:
- Say thank-you for EVERYTHING in your life. Write it down, say it out loud, sing your thank-yous, whatever it takes, be thankful.
- Figure out what brings you joy and allow yourself time to do those things. The world and your family needs you to live joyfully, so doing those things that bring you joy, are by no means selfish acts. Not allowing yourself the time to engage in activities that bring you joy, will keep joy and passion from your life and from those you love, and that would be selfish.
- Make peace with yourself and your body. If you find it difficult, then change the aspects you don’t like, BUT start living as if you are perfect in your own eyes, today. You will be amazed at the miracles that will show up in your life when you do.
- Smile. A smile can break down any negative situation, it can show love, it can show commitment, it can show passion, it can bring comfort, it can start or sustain a friendship, it shows you are living purposefully and it can be switched on by YOU at any time, anywhere and in any situation. It costs nothing and it can change everything.
To all the wonderful, powerful women I have met these past few weeks, the powerful women of my past and the powerful women that I will still get to meet, this quote by Wilfred Peterson sums up my experience with and of you:
“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it…”
I have walked with you and you have inspired me and I am grateful for it.
Powerful women live with passion, with purpose, with love for themselves and they smile!
