A 13 moon initiation course started this month;
I have started this before, but life took over, as oft it does, and I didn’t complete. I feel I’m in a new place now. A very different place. I am moving to a place of understanding myself as I never have before, and I feel alot more open than I have been. There is more vulnerability, but there is also more acceptance. The acceptance that the person I am is hidden behind many layers, and gradually I am removing those layers and opening myself up to freedom. It is not without risk, pain and loneliness. I think any transformation has to hurt. We are creatures of habit, we hold on to that which is familiar, but that which is familiar is not always good for us.
I noticed a funny thing happen this week. I began to like my double chin, or atleast, accept it. For as long as I care to remember I have looked in the mirror and despised my chin, the lack of sculpting. But this week, I looked and appreciated the shape and softness and curves. Maybe I’m actually coming to a point where embracing myself as I am now will enable me to live in more freedom. Maybe it really is true that when we finally love what and who we are we are in a place where change is a happy, positive event? One thing I do know, is that fighting myself hasn’t brought me happiness. Self degradation hasn’t led to a positive improvement in my life.
I’m looking forward to my Goddess Initiation, with a group of ladies who are equally keen to find their passion, sensuality and power. I’m looking forward to becoming the Phenomenal Woman. No longer will I shy away from myself and from life.
Join me, ladies! Embrace the woman! Celebrate the feminine!
