My wish, my plea with the universe is for all women everywhere to know their minds and to move in the direction of forward momentum and self-actualization, no matter the naysayers.
To me, being an Audacious Badass Mama is about finding or returning to a radical self-love that will then guide you to create more in your life. The kind of self-love that will rejuvenate and regenerate, to co-create with the universe the life that you want to lead. To reinvent ourselves, if need be, in order to find the love that we need IN ourselves.
Women lead with our hearts until we’re hurt, and then we’re afraid of losing our hearts and getting hurt again. So we forget joy, we forget intuition, and we fall into obligation and expectation and masks. If we can get back to our hearts, to acting with love and kindness and intention, then we can drop the fear and step back into love. And that’s a radical act these days. To step into love. To love on the people around us. To not only FIND joy but to BE joy.
Life and love are based on connection. On relationship. And we can’t do either of those when we’re coming from fear. When we ARE fear. There’s a huge connection here to essential oils. Essential oils are absolutely pure distillations of the earth. Their chemistry, their energy, shifts our vibration to one of hope and heart and love and release. They are the vibration of pure LOVE in a bottle, and they can IGNITE that radical self love that we’ve lost. Yes, they’re brilliant for wellness care. Yes, you can clean your house and make lotions and salves. But it’s their energetic VIBRATION that is so transformative.
I love Marianne Williamson’s quote that was used in Nelson Mandela’s inauguration. The last two lines are freaking brilliant. “And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” So when women return to self-love, to self-actualization, we give every other woman around us permission to do the same.
This is why, when women are in fear and anger and resentment and obligation and expectation and overwhelm, it feels like the oxygen is literally being sucked out of the room and the walls are caving in. Because we are so OUT of alignment with the flow of energy in the universe in those times that we’re literally killing ourselves.
Peter and I speak with people all the time about stepping out of self-judgement and self-flagellation, and loving the self who is feeling those feelings. If you have a small child in front of you having a meltdown, screaming your head off at them generally doesn’t resolve the situation. But loving them does. At some point, we’ve been so badly wounded that we’re incapable of providing the same for ourselves.
So, my Audacious Badass Mamas, do you agree? Are you literally sick and tired of living from a place of fear? Are you ready for something different? To live from a place of love? To share your light and your love with everyone around you, and give them permission to do the same? Will you join me in this prayer to the universe?
Share this with all the Audacious Badass Mamas in your life.
