The endeavor for equality and equity is real with the solution to transcend in love resting in each and every one of us.

The world needs more women to be alchemists; transmuting the pain and dissolving antiquated narratives of victimhood. To step into and fully embrace our individual feminine power so we can collectively create and participate in a gentler world.

We are not only more than capable of this quest, we are WOMAN. As we take leadership of ourselves and compassionately stand in our truth, we begin to free ourselves from the perceived and real limitations.

It means we might have to take a step back from the current approach and reevaluate. It means we must inspire and uplift each other in every moment. It means we must deeply honor ourselves and take the time to heal past traumas always seeking grace, so our inner compass is rock solid and aligned with Spirit.

It means we become more unified and stand together as comrades and not competitors, hand-in-hand, and march — into a gentler world, heads held high, truly knowing our collective worth as a coherent energy wave that can shift and awaken humanity.

It means when both WOMAN and MAN holistically balance their masculine and feminine energies, we experience an awakened dynamic, an equal give and take.

When enlightened men who have done the work of deeply healing their boyhood fears and life traumas, compassionately step up in solidarity and speak up; because they too have grandmothers, mothers, sisters, daughters, granddaughters, nieces, and aunties whom they love dearly without fear, without anger, without hate, without manipulation, without abuse.

The bottom line is, we all must recognize that half the world’s population of 8 billion is WOMAN - birthing and raising the other half.

So, every day when you see a WOMAN, make your heart smile and send blessings her way knowing, beyond a shadow of doubt, that God made WOMAN in his image and likeness with so much joy in his heart just as equally as he made MAN.
