I am not an expert on this area, but hey, I am a woman. Due to past experiences, that I now apreciate and acknowledge, I started exploring my feminine side and femininity more deeply a few years ago. I am still learning and exploring this every day and I love it.

Starting this exploration helped me realize that we as women carry in our womb, our uterus, our sacred space of creation, alot of memories, sometimes treasures, sometimes scars. And on top of that, not only ours, but those of our mothers, grandmothers and female ancestors. Therefore it is important to accept, acknowledge and apreciate all the women in and before your life. Most important is to do the same with the girl, mother, sister, grandmother and woman you are.

As modern women we sometimes lose touch of our feminine side. At least I did. And I had to remember and find out exactly what that means. This brought me to pay more attention to my Yoga teachings with regard to feminine/musculine energy. Feminine, lunar energy attributes are creativity, receiving, feeling,  collaboration, emotional, flexible and intuitive. I am not saying that we need to become only feminine women. As a woman (or a man) we need to balance our masculine and feminine energies. But what I am saying, is that maybe not all women (such as me) are as in contact with their feminine side as they could be.

If that is not enough to completely love and respect yourself (and all other women for that matter), then I do not know what is.


To start my exploration this prayer helped me. Honour yourself, honour your ancestors, feeling infinite respect towards them for coming before you to this life.

You can read it, repeat it, rewrite it…whatever you feel suits you. Here I have translated it from the spanish version that I learned.

If you feel like it, you can put your right hand on your heart, and your left hand on your lower belly (uterus).

I recognize the girl inside me.
I recognize the woman inside me.
I recognize the woman that is my mother.
I recognize the woman that is my grandmother.
I recognize all the women who pervade in me. 

I apologize to the girl inside me.
I apologize to the woman inside me.
I apologize to the woman that is my mother.
I apologize to the woman that is my grandmother.
I apologize to all the women who pervade in me. 

I forgive the girl inside me.
I forgive the woman inside me.
I forgive the woman that is my mother.
I forgive the woman that is my grandmother.
I forgive all the women who pervade in me. 

I thank the girl inside me.
I thank the woman inside me.
I thank the woman that is my mother.
I thank the woman that is my grandmother.
I thank all the women who pervade in me. 

I love the girl inside me.
I love the woman inside me.
I love the woman that is my mother.
I love the woman that is my grandmother.
I love all the women who pervade in me. 

I honour the girl inside me.
I honour the woman inside me.
I honour the woman that is my mother.
I honour the woman that is my grandmother.
I honour all the women who pervade in me. 

If you like you can then bring your hands together before your chest (heart centre) and bow down to yourself and the Female Goddess  (inside yourself and all women).
