Our world is ruled by men's power and ways of doing all things. These ways are wonderful for them and production but don't seem to create fulfillment or health in woman. Woman being in the world of business, need to find our way to be in it, our way to participate while also bringing honor to our feminine nature. Not only will this enhance our individual success but also the success of all business and the world at large.
There is a call for woman to be woman in all things. Stepping into the business world not really so long ago with rules and ways of competition, efficiency, production and logic ruling, needs our flexible wisdom of softer intuitive and collaborative energy. As the world has gotten larger in connection of all humanity, woman, the master communicators and collaborators are needed to support the evolving interconnectedness. We began our journey adapting to masculine ways, adapting ourselves ( which we are masters at) to the way it was done. Now as times change, our influence and presence in greater numbers, our collective energy and unique gifts can support a greater business world becoming.
I will never forget when one of the Himalayan Masters came to my farm and spoke of woman in the business world and how our way of using masculine energy was hindering our health. I was a bit blown away. It seemed so strange to me that a man, was explaining eloquently about woman what seemed to be such wisdom I should of known or atleast heard of before. All the woman in business events and lectures I had attended and no one had addressed me so deeply as a woman my role in business and explained the dissatisfaction I was experiencing. I was a bit surprised for as he spoke it seemed so clear and almost a no brainer yet I never heard our role or power put in that way.
He spoke of how we were working in production, logical thinking which we can but that it was not the best use of our skills. He spoke of how we belong in fields that inspire our innate gifts and unique way so that we have greater health. Using our collaboration, our negotiating which is a great skill of woman, our intuitive way with others was so needed. Doing things that inspire our heart and our connected ways that involve choices made from our heart would expand business in ways that men can not. Our creativity and out of the box thinking in a moments notice to solve problems was masterfully feminine. Our adaptability and way to see the greater picture including the larger group, part of our community gift were brilliant skills much needed today in business.
He listed such easy thoughts that I had never heard put that way that captured the essence and brilliance of woman. He also spoke of the greatest hindrance to our health and well being was the way we don't attend to our own needs and refuel ourselves. Generally that when woman took more time to develop their feminine self and spirit, our health. our productivity and happiness would expand for we are not caring for ourselves in the ways that inspire our femininity. All of this was so clear and rang so true for me and all the woman I knew. It truly inspired me to change my ways of being and consciously seek to put into practice the honoring of my skills and cultivation of myself in ways that worked.
Often when I speak of Sacred Femininity, woman wonder just what I am speaking of. I am not sure if the word Sacred stumps them or femininity. Yet there is no other way for me to describe this learning I got from Master Perun. He gave me a pride and honor of being a woman and truly being in my ways of that and how needed and sacred being feminine was. Rather than adapt to men's ways, he inspired me to be the unique creative woman I am and bring that fully to the world. His words allowed me to really revel in the gifts that woman have in just being woman and bring them to all parts of my life.
This I had not heard for it seems most are in the adaptive phase and pushing themselves beyond their limits. He shifted that all around by sharing exactly what woman uniquely bring to the world that men are not so good at. That was a monumental shift that inspired we to write, teach and share these ideas to other woman. He truly showed me how to honor being a woman and be more of a woman in all things. It seems funny that it happened to be a man who pointed it out rather than a woman!
So I invite you to take inventory of yourself and your unique skill set as a woman. Our feminine community seminars and talks with other woman should be centered and geared about these gifts. Maybe woman wouldn't feel so forced to get into the "Me too" activities if we collectively supported each other to be feminine in all things.. Allowing these types of behaviors to take place is something in a man ruled world. It just wouldn't be found so frequently if woman stood strong in their power and united to claim it together. We see this happening now, this banding of woman, this collective force growing to honor ourselves and each other in a community way that is our nature.
It is time to really embrace what we as woman bring to all parts of the world. We don't need to adapt to a system that is not set up to support our gifts or health. We need to be the change makers we are in groups and support business to grow in unique ways that only true feminine energy can bring. We also support our health, our way of moving and expansion at the same time making business more creative and adaptive. It is no longer about fitting in, it is about changing the ways things are done for we are here and involved and offer great collaboration that men are not so good at. I am all about this Sacred Femininity and so thankful a man shared the honor of it!
