The other day I read a write-up about a man who builds new homes for women in Fiji. I cried. I was so moved to hear that this man was willing to go to the other side of the world to help women in the midst of crisis whom he had never met .
Fast forward to last week when an email landed in my inbox. This was from Lynn Johnson who runs an organization called GoGirls! with her partner, Allison Kenney. GoGirls! is all about empowering young females through the theatre arts. (My older daughter got to live the GoGirls! experience when it was in its infancy. It was such a beautiful experience to see these girls embody the strength to speak up for themselves and to know that they can do what they set their minds to. You can check out GoGirls! here https://spotlightgirls.com/.)
The email talked about the Golden Globes speech that Oprah Winfrey gave on January 7, 2018. I clicked on the link and watched the replay on YouTube. With a box of tissues at my side I watched as Oprah showed all of us an image of the embodied female. She was strong, poised, non-violent, authentic and compassionate. Part way through the video as tears were streaming down my face my thirteen-year-old daughter saw me and said, I watched this four times last night! It went viral. (Here’s the link to watch Oprah’s speech https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fN5HV79_8B8. I’ve watched it several times now!)
When my daughter said she’d watched the speech, I beamed and cried even harder. Since I, and so many women I know, can authentically say, “Me too,” it touches my heart to know that young women have the opportunity to see history in the making here in 2018. There is a new energy among us: an energy that is helping to usher in the empowered feminine. The feminine is not just for women; it is also for men, as we all embody both feminine and masculine traits. What is happening right now is the opportunity for all of us to embrace those empowered feminine qualities that we each possess.
It is a beautiful time in our history. It may not feel easy, yet there is an opportunity here to change the way our planet views women and feminine energy and it is up to each of us, women and men, to do our own internal work so that we can usher in this energy with poise, compassion and strength.
