A WOMAN’S SURRENDER TO HER SOUL IS HER POWER
“Your intuition is your biggest gift. You have to know this as a woman.”
I wrote this to a VIP client of mine earlier today.
Hearing her words to me as she births herself into a phase of her beautiful existence reminds me of all the mini deaths of myself that I have been through and how my fear rises up.
How my little girl wants to cling to everything that she believes to be safe and she holds dear.
I hear in my head the wild woman screaming mad that she has to alter who she is again, feeling as though these changes that life is requesting are actually demands and insults against who I have worked so hard at becoming.
My inner voice, as I like to believe it to be, rants and spouts out how I am not good enough, how I am exhausted and how no one cares.
The inner terror of transformation with the calm face that we women put on for our world, our family, our men.
We so often stay quiet.
We hide from our pain and fear.
We pride ourselves in our resilience.
We know that we are strong.
But in order to remain this way and to hold it all together,
We also know that we must armor our hearts.
Hide our wounds.
Keep dormant our truth and desires.
This world has never supported who we are. This world that is run by mind and logic. It condemns intuition, heart and emotion. And it leaves both women and men alike, empty in its wake. And so, I wrote to my beautiful female client:
“I cannot say this loud enough or repeat it enough. We women do not understand how powerful of a source our intuition is and the reality is that our ego and the ego of the world around us has trained us to have more faith in fear and doubt, to try to over think and rationalize everything and in turn this causes us to step away from our core and get out of alignment with what our next best step of action is.
Your sharing of the witnessing of how your lover is experiencing so much and your wonder around how you can still remain so open and yet armored up is eye opening. It shows your desire and therefore that all you crave is on the brink of happening for you, but what do you have to do to achieve it?
This is where you are getting hung up. You are thinking too much and thus not surrendering.Your desire to have your little girl cared for and guided is your divine feminine nature that understands that it is too fluid and needs a protector.
You are coming into a space of your life as a woman now where you are learning how to be your perfect balance of masculine and feminine.
Leader and creator.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with needing or wanting guidance, a hand, support, etc. we all need this in life, and we need it to be successful. As you learn how to hold the container that you are building for yourself.
You will need multiple guideposts on the journey. From these sources you will learn what feels right and good and what is not in alignment.
As for the prompts: They are designed to make you pause and sit with the discomfort of your soul, the monkey brain screaming at you that you need to answer and to get it “right” to know. The voices that are coming through the strongest as you ponder a prompt are your ego. Your soul will be calm and hard to hear. But asking these prompts of yourself and then choosing to listen to the clammer of the ego and to wait for the soul’s answer to slowly rise up will bring you so many blessings.
You will tap back into you, your heart and learn how to hear your intuition again, thus surrender as well. “
The surrender of a woman to her intuition.
To her heart.
We so often do not honor this power.
I am blessed to have a partner in my life that values my intuition and is a constant in my day and life reminding me of my power. He will say,
“No, we listen to your intuition.”
Every time he encourages and supports my listening, he is being the guidepost that I need. He is honoring my divine nature as a woman and having emotions. When he takes my hand, looks me in the eyes and says,
“Listen to what you feel.”
I feel the universe, I feel God move through this man and say, “Babe, I got you. I got your back.”
But sometimes, we don’t have a physical person to be our guidepost. I have been here too. It is scary. It is frightening. All we have then is ourselves, and we have done such a good job in recent years of past to prove how we cannot trust who we are.
Our thoughts. Our feelings.
I tell you that it is not true, however.
You were not listening to how you feel or what your intuition was saying, you were listening to the clammer and getting lost in the chaos. Lost in your own human drama. Believing that it was you. Your emotions. The one thing that all my mini deaths and rebirths have taught me, is that anything that is based in fear and anxiety is not of soul.
Is not of God. And should not be acted upon. These are opportunities to learn to pause and sit with the murmuring of discomfort. For when the soul of God speaks, when you hear your truth, your divine inner being. It will be faint at first. It will ask for you to settle into self, to listen with intent and to be patient. It will draw you in and demand your presence. Soul will never demand in a loud voice to act or listen. Soul will only offer an opportunity.
A good feeling.
And it will keep offering.
Your free will decides if you take it or ignore it. A woman is a fluid beautiful creature. A powerful source of love. She knows what her next best step is when she feels what is right and good. Listen, beautiful woman. Listen not to anything but that space of peace within. Here you will surrender. Here you will discover. Here you will have everything that your heart desires and your soul knows is already yours.
