Small groups of women gathering. It has been happening for centuries, sometimes it’s seen as good, sometimes it’s not, all of the time it’s necessary. Louise has said it often enough, “Women are the key.” I had an extraordinary experience last week-end and it has taken a few days for me to find a quiet moment to reflect and absorb what took place.
9 women gathered at a cottage for 2 days to talk about moving an initiative forward, and in the end it was we who were moved forward, hence the initiative will flow. 9 women, not all known to one another came together to have a conversation. And it was real. Real in the sense that there were no barriers, there was no hiding. Each was magnificent in what she brought, whether in her silence or by her words. Each magnificent in just being. In allowing herSELF to be seen. There were moments of laughter and moments of tears as we struggled through to find ourselves, to create our purpose. And there was another who was in our midst, seen by one, thus enabling her to be heard, who confirmed we’ve have been here before doing the exact same thing.
We were connected, in a way that is not often experienced. I am finding that more and more I am connecting to people, women, on this level. There is a hunger for these conversations, where no one has to be afraid that they will be judged, because, as we all know to judge, another is only to judge ourselves.
My SELF was in full bloom, patient, engaged, intrigued, curious, at times agitated and it was all good. I allowed mySELF to be present, and, to show my presence in the midst of these wonderful women. I know I made a difference, everyone did, and all we had to do was show up. I no longer have to ‘do’ being, I just have to be. It is effortless, no need to get all tangled up inside, unless I choose to.
We are all connected to ‘everything’, it was so apparent, day one was snowy, windy, rainy, the second day was clear, sunny and brilliant, the weather mirrored what was going on in me, in us as a collective and I now know I am connected to everything and everyone.
There has been a message coming into my awareness more and more. My reality is what I make of it, and it’s only because I stop myself from believing that fully when my life does not change.
To embrace all truths, not just mine is where the key lies. Imagine embracing the truth of everyone in a room, to ‘let go’ of all preconceptions in order the shape reality moment by moment. To experience more of mySELF moment by moment, to embrace whatever experience my soul desires or needs to help me see what I need to see, to know what I need to know. To unfold and decloak my entire being for all to see, all the time.
That is the power of women gathering in small groups, talking, having real conversations
©. It will change the world. I know it has changed mine. All I have to do is show up AND allow my presence, mySELF to be seen and heard. I have to let go.
