“Sisterhood is the Sacred bond that only Women know and share. It is the unseen power that we can choose to acknowledge, love, cultivate, and use to nourish and fuel our lives as Women in the world. When we experience the immense power of Sisterhood, we feel alive, safe and recognized…”
–Tara Isis Gerris from her book, Moon Circles
Over the past few years, I have been feeling “the call”; the call to Mother Nature, to the divine feminine and to the oneness that connects us all. I started to explore this through various means, through my already developed yoga practice, traveling through Asia and meeting with learned people, researching the Wiccan religion, and reading about our connection to the Moon, the Mother, each other, and the tradition of Sisterhood and Women’s Circles. All of this has brought me down an incredible path where I have met and built relationships with incredible women, who have helped me to search inside myself and start to make my dreams a reality. To start to look beyond fear and go for what I want, to follow my path and trust in myself and the universe. These are my Sisters and I am so very blessed.
The ancient tradition of Sisterhood and Women’s Circles has been lost for many centuries; women and men were persecuted and murdered for practicing Goddess worship, Witchcraft and honouring Mother Nature. More recently, women and men have been feeling “the call” and returning to this beautiful and much needed tradition. This tradition brings us back to our roots. I can only speak from personal experience; the support of my Sisters has been one of the most heart opening, soul awakening and spiritual experiences I have had.
My Sisterhood journey so far, has taught me to practice self love, radical, unconditional self love and from this, I hope to offer the same support to the Souls in my life. I have been experiencing my connection to the Moon; in her fullness she fills me with complete joy and ecstasy. This connection to my Sisters and to nature has brought me to myself, uncompromising, raw and complete just as I am. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is a practice, it is not easy and sometimes I make mistakes, don’t give myself credit and judge myself harshly. I must not waver; I must continue to move forward and to keep up with this practice. In this practice, I must make mistakes so that I can pick myself up and move forward. It is a journey to me, to my full potential, towards being fearlessly authentic at all times.
“Wouldn’t it be powerful if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that you would do just about anything if you knew it would make you happy? This is precisely how much life loves you and wants you to nurture yourself. The deeper you love yourself, the more the universe will affirm your worth”- Alan Cohen
If you are living your truth and following your divine path, the universe will do all possible to assist you in reaching your goals. Keep moving forward, making mistakes is how we learn.
I am in deep gratitude to all my Sisters and Brothers, some who I have not met yet, to my Mother, to my teachers, my family and my Love, thank you for all your support so far on this life long journey.
May all our wildest dreams come true!
With Love from Soulshine
