Today I am opening up something fun that will become a series about THE EMPOWERED WOMAN.
Who is she? What does she look like?
Let’s begin with a definition from the Oxford Dictionaries.
“the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.”
This reminds me of the Goddess Sekhmet and her message as written by Doreen Virtue. She says: “You’re the embodiment of strength, not victimhood. As you rise above old tendencies and see yourself in the new light of beautiful feminine strength, your life will automatically shift in miraculous ways. You’ll attract new opportunities, forms of abundance, and relationships to help you manifest your highest potential. Being strong means seeing yourself in the most favourable light you can imagine.”
I was so struck when I read this message. Particularly the last sentence which places all the power in our own hands and requiring, as all true miracles do, simply a shift in our perception. Same body, same person, same problems - different experience.
I could be strong, simply by seeing myself in the most favourable light I could imagine?!
I felt like I had again discovered “the secret” that I continually find myself learning, forgetting & rediscovering over and over again.
Life becomes a different experience, simply in the way we perceive it!
And with that I hope it lands that everything I write from here on is available to you, simply with a shift in perception.
So, what does empowerment mean to me?
Empowerment means living & embracing the full extent of our power. Finding our inner strength to live & consciously create the life & experiences we desire.
To show up fully & authentically as ourselves.
Who is the Empowered Woman?
The Empowered Woman lives as a full expression of her truth.
She embraces all aspects of herself.
She takes responsibility for her life.
She is confident in herself, she knows her power.
She sets boundaries that support her.
She speaks her mind & embodies her truth.
She uses her voice as inspired & expresses herself fully.
She prioritises her health & fulfilment above all else.
She embodies love, facing fear head on with courage.
She decides, she knows her strength.
She feels her feelings fully, listening to the wisdom they provide her.
She communicates consciously and confidently.
She expresses herself emotionally, spiritually, sexually, physically.
She partners with people who respect her, who uplift her, who value her and she them.
She gives without expectation.
She does not fear time or age.
She makes her own rules.
She is connected to herself & trusts the inner wisdom she receives.
She knows what she wants and she creates it.
She honours her body & her cyclical nature.
She believes in her equality.
She is authentic.
She is love, kindness & compassion.
She is grounded & flowing.
She belongs, because she accepts herself completely.
She is centred, in alignment with her higher self.
She recognises her limitations & ensures she is supported as she needs.
She asks & receives without guilt.
She loves without reservation, without games, without scarcity.
She knows her rights.
She sees her beauty inside and out.
She is connected to her body, her heart & understands her mind.
She gives without diminution of her power.
She draws from her masculine & feminine energy as she needs.
She does what she loves.
She follows her passions, her curiosities, her inspirations. She takes them seriously.
She stands up for what she believes.
She supports, empowers & inspires others.
She values her pleasure.
She is a conscious creator.
She knows who she is, what she needs & she moves through life in that power.
The power of knowing who she is.
She is not a victor because she holds no prisoners. And she certainly is not a victim because she is not imprisoned.
SHE IS FREE.
The Empowered Woman represents freedom.
Take a moment to breath that in. To taste it, to feel it - The Empowered Woman is FREE to be herself.
Isn’t that what we are searching for? Freedom to live the life we want to live. Freedom to feel the way we feel. Freedom to express ourselves fully. Freedom to show up completely as ourselves and to be accepted.
Remember the shift in perception. This freedom is available to you at any given moment - all it takes is a conscious shift in your perception. I’m a prisoner or I’m free.
