Who are You not to shine?
I know, I have been there. Gradually we slipped into the invisibility cloak.
It took decades, maybe, of our lustre and radiance to be buried under the grime of daily drifting away from our glorious essence, the duties, the soul sucking activities (jobs), the pretending to be "fine" (don't we wear that mask well??!!) ...
Then one day we kinda wake up, be it a divorce, a disaster, a health crisis, or whatever.
All of a sudden we remember what we were like, before ... Then, some of us decide to jump back on the train we used to be on. After all, heck! We're still sexy, are we not? So, it's being a teenager again, or what we were like in our 20's ... behaving and dressing the part.
Then we realise, actually that does not work either. We have grown and changed under that cloak, we hide our scars under that cloak. Following the dictates of media pretend-I-am-young game. Wearing a sexy mini skirt over that cloak becomes a pathetic joke, no matter how we convince ourselves that it is ok.
We mourn our youthfulness and try to run as fast and powerfully as we were then, trying to show the younger generation that we 'still got it!' ...
My glorious sisters of a certain age,
let us come fully out of hiding, authentically redefining ourselves,
awaken and embody the wise, beautiful, loving, sensuous mature women that we are.
Let us embrace conscious positive ageing with radiant agelessness.
We are healers, my sisters, medicine women, skilfully weaving life experience, and spirituality, masterfully into loving, leading and guiding this world … not defined by greed, but by compassion, not torn apart by patriarchal competition, but by collaborating with one another, honouring the divine feminine and the divine masculine.
You have known it deeply inside of you for a very long time. You may have done the soul work, you may have done the inner stuff, the healing, the courses, it is time to step out and shine.
It’s time to break out of the cultural conditioning of self sacrifice and being invisible – never really having chosen yourself.
It’s time to break out of limiting scarcity mindset and into financial autonomy, and step by step become the sovereign sage elder you were created to be for such a time as this!
It is also time to step into the higher art and magic of your soul’s mojo and get your unique sage feminine joie de vivre to flourish, even as a successful older business woman entrepreneur ... if you so desire ...
"As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson
Much love to you
