Why am I still here? Glad you asked.
Because I want to help shift the way women feel about themselves. And the way they end up acting because of the way they feel about themselves.
Too many women are still feeling that they are not free to be themselves. So they are playing it safe, some more than others. I won’t go into why that is, since I have covered it extensively in this blog.
My desire is fueled by what I see going on not only here in the United States of America, but in many places across the globe. The patriarchy is doubling down in its attempt to silence women. To push women’s basic human rights back in time.
What’s interesting is that it’s not the majority of people who feel this way, but there are enough that do, and those are the ones that are working hard to maintain control, or at least the illusion of control on the world stage.
So it’s time for woman to recognize who she really is. To see how she has played into the patriarchy. And to walk away from that story for good. It’s time for her to recognize that she does not owe anything to her male counterparts, that she has nothing to feel shame or guilt about.
That she is not required to carry the burdens of others on her shoulders, in her heart or in her body.
That she is not here to satisfy anyone’s sexual or emotional needs. That she is not here as a scapegoat for anyone’s anger
It is time she recognizes that she and only she has the right to be in control of her own body. That no one, no man, no woman, no entity, government, religion, or god gets to decide for her, anything to do with something so personal and so intimate and sacred as her own physical vessel.
Whether it has to do with her weight, how she dresses, how she carries herself, how she expresses herself, or her reproductive choices.
It is time she knows that hers is the ultimate voice. When it comes to her life, and her body, that voice must be trusted above all else.
She must understand that she is no longer being asked to sacrifice or compromise her own joy. Or her own sensuality. She can wear what she wants, and she can be as loud as she wants. She can eat what she wants, as much as she wants. She can feel joy, the orgasmic aspects of this physical reality and of her body, without guilt.
She deserves to be heard, and to be believed.
Her freedom relies upon her love and acceptance of herself first. The only masculine she truly needs is her divine masculine within. She can depend upon him and upon her soul to navigate her safely in a world that has not embraced her presence for a very long time.
She can take a deep breath now. And she can exhale.
She will probably lose a few friends along the way, and most likely be scorned now and then by others, especially other women, who resent her freedom. Her presence will make some people uncomfortable. But she is willing to pay that small price for her sovereignty.
It’s time for women to be free.
