I have been sharing Sacred Femininity for years and it is so familiar to me that I often forget that others have no understanding or awareness of the power of being a woman. They know not of energy well of Shakti. I hadn't either yet the sound of Sacred Femininity called me. It is important that I find those who are seeking the wisdom I am sharing. It is a niche market so I continue on my mission to find my tribe. You can only know by putting it out there and seeing the response
In an effort to make connections, promote the Room and its spiritual workshops as well as my own work, I went to the usual business woman meeting yesterday. A lovely group of woman that seemed to have great sisterhood. As I was listening to each and what they do, which is in 10 seconds, the elevator speech, I felt this anxiety. The quick energy that each spoke, the businessy vibe of things and my own discomfort of sorts for this is not really the way woman empower each other as I know it, I left the meeting feeling kind of stressed with this uncomfortable energy. I know when I spoke of myself saying I support woman to embody the Inner Goddess Glow, an energy of not understanding pervaded the room. Many have clever phrases so I tried to do that with my work. Many don't even consider themselves a Goddess so maybe not so clever.
We only have 10 seconds to share our work and how do I describe myself and my unique work in 10 seconds? It is the way business is done yet I am not sure just throwing out a quick word can describe the essence of Sacred Femininity. I am not a normal business coach or seller of products or have a retail store. I work with woman regarding their inner essence, their essential nature of being a woman, an art lost in our culture of business and life. You can do all the business you want, take courses to increase productivity, learn how to's yet none of this will create as much success as embracing yourself inwardly.
After I left, I fortunately had a Svaroopa Yoga Class and that recentered me back to my calm oxytocin state. In the interum, I really had to check within to see if this static, this anxiety was fear coming forward from expanding in new ways and groups or was it a sign that I am in the wrong tribe. This is the point of self awareness, checking in with yourself to learn what the message of your feeling nature is. It is a guidance system that supports you to know what or where to be involved. Many miss the importance of the emotional nature. It is an indicator of the world around you and gives you information on how to move.
I determined that this group just wasn't my tribe. I reached out and put forth my work and it just isn't the group for me. I know that what I teach and how I teach it is not common or something all woman want to embrace at this time. Sacred Femininity stirs many of our outdated belief systems. When I wanted to call my book that years ago, the publisher thought it wouldn't sell as easy. She thought many woman haven't been taught the Sacredness of being a woman and they would unconsciously not get it for that title. So I am looking for woman wanting to expand beyond the belief systems we have regarding being a woman and open to being sacred as one.
It is good learning to know your tribe. It is like selling sneakers to someone with no feet. They have no use or interest in footwear. As one of my teachers said, how can you share the magic of the womb and its creative power with woman who are blocked from their womb, don't know and don't want to know. So it was a good day of business for me to realize, through my own experience of how I felt and was received, that I am in the wrong place. This way you avoid feeling rejected or bad about yourself when you are just not in a place that resonates with what you are offering. Whether business or pleasure. Rejection is protection. Being rejected is guidance of "dont go there. Staying in places where we don't feel good to be yourself can cause more issue than realizing we just don't belong there. It is not good or bad it just is an indicator of where you feel safe and good.
We all have gifts that can awaken others to new things. Not all are on the same level and vibration so you can never please everyone. There is a discernment about your work that is very important. In my ministerial blessing there is a line that says, " and those that are in that ray are easily and openly reminded of the light and joy of spirit." The key is "in that ray". So there are other rays that I will not easily inspire. It is important that I don't take that as rejection but know when I am not inspiring, I am in the wrong tribe I learned of that this morning. It is a blessing and guidance.. I will keep going, for they are out there as I am inspired to find and share what helped me. I will just keep going!
