Next week, I will travel to Florida for the purpose of taking over my 92-year old mom’s finances. Not because she really wants me to or that she’s not capable of continuing to handle them on her own. But with the realities of Covid-19, it seems the prudent thing to do.
Sadly, while there I won’t be able to be with her face to face. She lives in a retirement center that is under quarantine, with increased restrictions being implemented as cases in Florida are on the rise. I’ll get all of her paperwork and then stay in a nearby hotel.
In truth, she could leave her home and stay at my sister’s house where would be able to be together taking precautions by wearing masks and maintaining social distancing. But even with precautions there are no guarantees, and when she returns to her home she would be in quarantine for 14 days.
There are no easy answers anymore it seems. We all have to make the best decisions we can with the information we’ve been given.
But, despite the uncertainty, I am hopeful that this time of upheaval and chaos, this collective dark night of the soul, is an opening to vast possibilities we may have only imagined. One way of life may be over, but a new way of being and doing will be birthed from the turbulence. And it’s up to us to make that happen.
Women’s voices are needed now more than ever! Your voice!
The feminine naturally leads not from a place of competition, scarcity, and power over – but rather from a place of cooperation, abundance, and power with. From a place of love and compassion. But for centuries our voices have been suppressed and silenced. No more. The Divine Feminine is Rising and it’s time to speak our truth!
As Barbara Marx Hubbard said, “For the first time in thousands of years, women now have the opportunity to give birth to their authentic feminine “Self”, and to actively participate in the workings of the evolutionary process. The modern and postmodern rise of women into the role of evolutionary agents is an event of the highest significance.”
So how will you answer the call? What will you do? Where will you serve?
During the shutdown, I completed my research on Women’s Empowerment and the Divine Feminine. If you’d like to learn more, here’s a link to a short PowerPoint presentation…https://youtu.be/sygifA0i5eY
We’re all connected and the social issues that challenge us are inter-connected as well. When we come together in community to learn, grow, and serve, we strengthen our commitment and increase our impact ensuring that we effect the change we want to see in the world.
It doesn’t matter which pillar you choose to focus on…environmental sustainability, health & well-being, education, economic empowerment, freedom from violence, equality…it all matters! Choose a pillar and join with others to shift the paradigm from patriarchy and privilege to new systems that support the common good.
Regardless of our race, religion, age, or culture – we are all women. We are sisters. We are strong, courageous, and determined. And together, as Fierce Warrior Goddesses of Light, we will change the world!
Be bold. Be daring. Be AWE-dacious!
