Every Day Is Women’s Day

March 8, 2020
March 8 is recognized as Women’s Day, and while I applaud its existence, this symbolic gesture is a long way from the ideal: every day is women’s day.

Commemorating this day causes me to reflect on the meaning of the Divine Feminine and how I got separated from mine at an early age. I didn’t realize until many years later that my body is a sacred vessel and that I need to honor it through various self-love and self-care habits and actions.

No, when I was young I was consumed by anger and shame. My mother and I had escaped a war-torn Colombia and settled in Canada, where I was an outcast. I felt shame, anger, and judged by my peers. These feelings took over my spirit and mind, so I turned to food to take away the hurt.

For me, food was the only thing I felt I could control, so I carefully counted every calorie I consumed and had very rigid rules about what I could and could not eat. From rigid control I went to binging, trying to fill the emptiness inside of me.

This way of handling my emotions was very masculine; that is, very cool and without feeling. I lived this way for decades, and I got along. However, I had no connection with my Divine Inner Feminine self.
I was functioning, but not living. 
All of us hunger for loving relationships, validation from others, tenderness and compassion, and something to distract us from not achieving these goals. When we distract ourselves, our hunger is pushed aside rather than satisfied.

Whether we use food, alcohol, drugs, gambling, shopping, or some other distraction, we are not nourishing our body, mind, or spirit. Instead, we fill our lives and minds with shallow and often harmful activities. We lose sight of the Divine Feminine focus.
Every woman is born with a Divine Feminine birthright. 
You are a sacred being who is enough just as you are.
Who you are is a creative, energetic, loving, compassionate, nurturing, sensual, powerful, courageous woman. While you are here on Mother Earth, you should be manifesting these innate qualities.
 
Somewhere along the way, however, and often very early in our lives, family, friends, and society squash those qualities. We are told we are less than and not enough. Our Divine Feminine nature is pushed further and further into our very being until we have difficulty retrieving it.

But you can retrieve it, reclaim it, and restore it. How?

Open your mind and heart. The voice of the Divine Feminine is calling out to you, but the only way you can hear it is to be still and listen. You need to put aside the noise from the world, the people and circumstances trying to convince you to doubt yourself or that you’re not worthy of achieving your dreams and goals.

When you listen to the outside world, you disconnect from your Sacred self, your personal, unique story. If you want to be one with your sacred Divine Feminine, you need to open your mind and heart and heal the part of you that has believed the noise.
 
One effective way to listen to the voice of the Divine Feminine is to meditate. I strongly encourage you to meditate daily for at least 10 to 15 minutes. I know that my meditation is one of the most important parts of my day. It’s a time to “check in” with my Sacred self and restore my commitment to follow the healing path of the Divine Feminine.

Another technique is journaling. If you are resistant to writing down your thoughts, all I can say is, so was I. But once I got down those first few words, the rest poured out of me. It’s truly amazing how healing seeing your thoughts and dreams on paper can be. It’s a powerful way to reconnect with your Sacred self and restore confidence in yourself.

Move. The human body is made to move, and there’s something special about moving to music. Music is often called a universal language because it speaks to everyone. It is a language of freedom, of emotion, and of connection. When you move your body to music, you connect with spirit and your Sacred self. Whether you dance fast or slow, whether or not you have rhythm, just let yourself be a child again and dance to the language of the heart.

Practice self-care. The essence of the Divine Feminine is sensual and intimate. Yet in today’s fast-moving world, we rarely take time to connect with our senses and take care of ourselves. Two reasons we often neglect ourselves is that we don’t believe we deserve it or we think it’s selfish to take time for ourselves. These are both myths we’ve been taught to believe.

It’s time to put those myths out of your life. You need and deserve to nourish yourself and all of your senses—smell, touch, taste, hearing, and sight—every day. When you allow yourself to embrace these God-given gifts, your heart gates open fully. You cannot love and give fully to others until you love and give fully to yourself.
How can you accept and participate in these gifts?
Take time for yourself every day to do something that nourishes your soul and allows you to relish your senses. 
For example:
  • Take a bubble bath
  • ​Do dry brushing
  • ​Take a walk in nature and listen to her sounds, smell her aromas
  • ​​Dance to your favorite music
  • ​Sing your favorite songs
  • ​Get a massage
  • ​​Walk and play with your dog or your friend’s dog
  • ​Watch a funny movie or video
  • ​Paint, sculpt, knit, or do other creative artwork
The point is to reconnect with your Divine Feminine self and restore your faith in yourself and your dreams. They are your birthright.
You can make every day women’s day. Why not start now? How will you celebrate Women’s Day? What are going to do to make every day your day? I’d love to hear what you do!

Blessings to all
