Forward is the Motion

Nestled in a mountain cabin, somewhere between books and dialogue, I find comfort in the stillness of unfamiliar surroundings. Last years fever breaks and my exhale, finally, feels natural. In this safe haven, my reflection is recognizable, time passes gently and tea never grows cold. Head-to-toe in something super soft by Cotton On Body, I dip in and out of sleep. Waking up on love’s shoulder only to spend time playing scrabble by the fire and drink rye before noon. Here, I am reminded that happiness is our birthright and this kind of freedom, something worth fighting for.

It is a New Year and I’m shifting the paradigm. Changing the way I think and interact with
self. To go through the stages of my existence and ask What On Earth Am I Here For? The longing for a purpose driven life. Learning how-to extend kindness, grace, humility, and love always in all-ways.  Letting go of the idea that there are many things to be resolute about and committing further to staying open-hearted because every day is new.

I’m starting to think that maybe it takes more than resolutions. It takes resilience.

Desert Hot Springs

There are times when the days will not feel long enough. You'll wish that there were more hours to read, bathe, be held. Light a candle, drink gin before noon, and root your bare feet into the earth. It feels evolutionary to sit in stillness and breathe each morning in deeply, knowing who you are and how it is you want to move through the world, today. On this day, giving feels natural and using more than words does, too. Some girls, some days, aren't meant to withhold. Some of us, are meant to stay untamed. Rising, growing more wild, and beautiful. Under the deserts yellow moon, we howl for the truth. Turn to one another and whisper,

Be brave. Your quality of life
and love,

depends on it.

Rest awhile and listen, as I tell you of the great powers resting there in your hips, on your breast, in the fibers that twist and twine within your flesh. Of the greatness you possess of which I think you need to be reminded.

Beyond the image of external beauty you so diligently work to tend, beyond the idea that your external beauty holds great value and importance lives something far more wondrously wild and uniquely yours. A beauty of no standard, just your raw and unfeathered self. Beyond the idea that your appearance is acquainted with your worth, thrives a tremendous depth. Let me remind you of your softness, your abilities to heal, to transform, to nurture the world around you.

Let me remind you of the natural gifts that come packaged alongside you when you were born into this world as woman. Let me remind you that your gifts of feeling, empathy, and love are not weaknesses to sever yourself from. They are not wasted on you. They are not something to run from. To feel ashamed or deceitful. So much of being woman means to be fierce-feelers; to see the way you so naturally do. To feel and touch and nurture the life that is both conceived in your womb and swimming around you.

If I could tell you one thing you must somehow learn to remember it’s that your sensitivities were meant to be used for greatness. To Feed and nurture the world into proper order. The softness you possess was meant to be taught, shared, showered.

Let me remind you of the ocean of strength that lives within you. Let me remind you of the constellations that swirl in continuous orbit around your heart center. Let me remind you of the connection you have with the divine, the source from which woman was born. You have within you the most frightening power of all. The power to love without condition. To nurture without thought. To breathe life back into broken and scared places in others. You must always remember these are your gifts. You must always remember the ocean of strength that lives within you.

Reconnect with your most untamed version of you. Who looks not into the mirror to find her power but travels into the uncharted waters that thrash around her and brings peace and tenderness on her back. I want to remind you the vastness of your being before we got lost in the small box of what we’ve been taught as women. Before we were taught to stop crying so often. Before we were taught to toughen our skins. Before we were taught to be hard. Before we were distracted into thinking the roundness of our eyes and plumpness of our lips somehow held value and importance. Before we forgot that we are the portals of life for great reason, that we have throughout history been the soft light in which all life grows.  At what point did we get so lost to the value and importance of these very things.

These qualities and inclinations humming in your background require your attention and nurturing. They are what the world is in need of. They are to be cultivated with great care. If you find yourself feeling lost, disconnected from source, alienated from yourself. You must work to journey back into your wildness. Sit with yourself. Place your feet bare against the earth. Breathe back into the little girl you once were. The little girl who led with her heart. The little girl who led with all the joy in the world and all the pain, too. Feel back into the little girl who became afraid of all her abilities to see and feel so much. Who decided it was safer to close than to open to. To the little girl who listened to the people around her. Criticizing her sensitivities. Calling her too soft. Travel back to that little girl and offer your hand now, from your grounded root. From your place of woman, or mother, or lover. Show her the way back, into her most fulfilling form. Into her place as the divine feminine.
