After recent events in my life, I was left thinking about what it means to be powerful. Does it mean being in control or having specific things in your life? Does it mean being positive and happy with where you are? What does the word power actually mean? These are questions that have been living in my mind of late.
Sometimes no matter how hard you try or how positive you try to be, life just happens and takes you by surprise. Often this is not in the way we hope or like but nevertheless it is what it is and it’s up to each of us to make the best of the situation we find ourselves in, even if it is forced upon us.
It has been a difficult few weeks but I feel such gratitude for my life and the people around me. I truly am blessed and I know that no matter what happens there is always love. Material things come and go but who we are and our connection to Source will always stay.
It is about owning who we are and how we feel in each moment. It is about being honest and true with ourselves. That is not always an easy place to be but it is authentic and I believe that is what it really means to be powerful. Truth is power and within that power to love and forgive, healing can begin.
“Recovery is realising that the fullness of life awaits you,
and that the difficult struggle will turn into the divine path.”
In love and light,
There is beauty
in so many unrecognised places.
It’s a different beauty than
what you find in magazines,
where the faces all become the same
page after page.
Neither is about shapes or fabrics
or cut or colour.
Beauty is how you invite people
into your life and your heart no matter what;
it’s when you laugh or cry with your whole self
just because that’s how you feel.
Beauty is the way you move
when you think no one is watching
and you forget the shadows
of “should” and “supposed to”.
Beauty is courage, energy, hope, and grace.
Beauty is you –
just the way you are.

I came across this poem and I think it speaks for itself. I wanted to share it with you and follow on from last week’s post in dedication to all women. There are so many facets to a woman that is far greater and richer to what is portrayed in the media. It is a place where there is no competition or rivalry; only support and connection. It is place that exists beyond time and space, where you are able access more of who you are.
When you receive the love of a woman, you allow the Divine mystery to melt your heart. You become open to all there is and life is never the same again. You find strength in places you never thought possible. You find magic in vulnerability and tap into an energy that let’s your true power shine. Centred in the feminine, it is a place of empowerment and YOU shall remain.
In love and light,
