Im not much of an activist and I don’t usually go onto the streets to protest or anything like that. But I respect the people who do that, because I think they are strong and courageous for wanting to express something or call for change. However I think true change comes from an individual place, deep within. And for something to happen deep within, we have to start developing a sensitivity in order to actually feel what is happening within.
Of course there are different ways of doing this. For me my yoga journey has helped, and my teachers have helped also, guiding me to go deeper within myself. Whether it be meditation, yoga, walks on the beach, rock climbing, becoming a mother or father, there are all kinds of ways that we start learning about ourselves and get to a place where we can actually just be ourselves.
If I can just give a small reflection…everyone and everything that happens in your life is there to help and guide you go more withing. Try to remember this, and be open to all experiences and people that come into your life. They are usually teachers that bring you closer to yourself.
That said, the text I am sharing below is such a wonderfull description of a woman being in touch with herself, or her essence. It inspires me and maybe it can do the same for you.
The Ecstatically Awakening Woman is a woman in metamorphosis. She is changing woman, leaving behind the constructs that have bound her. She no longer fit’s into the mould of the cultural status quo, she lives aligned to her unique soul design.
She is creatively on fire and connected to her deeper soul desires. She lives inside the inspirational stream of her creative dreams. She lives a life of passion and purpose, knowing that her imagination is her greatest gift for creating the highest possibilities for her life.
She has slipped into the abundance stream of creation, she trusts that there is always enough, love, food or wealth. She loves her body as the temple of her soul and can heal an injury in her body at least three times faster than most.
She honours her sexuality as sacred, and knows how to cultivate this force for awakening and healing. She is sexually sovereign and claims her sexuality as her own. She no longer needs a man or lover to complete her yet shares intimately and deeply from an overflowing place in her heart and from this place of giving she bonds deeply. She embraces her soft, sensuous nature and moves with grace out of her hiding place and lets her juicy feminine essence be seen.
She is omni orgasmic and has full bodied ecstatic orgasms, while smelling a rose or on her early morning walks while breathing in the prana of the trees. She is playful as a child and wise as the ancient mother that guides her life.
She is inclined towards regular bursts of spontaneous expression, like wrapping her body in vines of jasmine while singing and dancing under the stars. She lives in gratitude and appreciates the beauty that surrounds her and gives thanks daily.
She is emotionally agile, when emotions arise she does not collapse or suppress, but surrenders to the river of Shakti’s love and lets them flow. She is in touch with her wild woman, courageous, untamed and free.
She is becoming slowly luminous, as with every ecstatic star burst she is switching on new DNA and lighting up new pathways in her brain. She is ecstatically awakening her super human powers and creative potentials, she is limitless, fearless and free.
She knows love is her true power and cultivates her heart as her source. Her inner fire glows golden and radiant like the sun. Her energy does not leak in need of no one. She does not compromise her self to be liked. She loves and accepts herself as she is.
Her heart is golden, the centre of her radiant source, and she lives in the spirit of devotion, of love and service in motion.
Anchored in true power she follows her inner authority. She is a powerful co creator, collaborator, team player, she has moved from independence to interdependence.
She lives guided by her intuition, her body her felt sense leading the way. Her mind, her rational would be the secondary guide not the first.
She lives in balance with the masculine and feminine polarities of her being. She lives in peace with men and woman, peace with all beings. She honours all life is sacred and walks in beauty, and lives in grace.
