Change is in the Air - Is it Chaos or Light?
By Barbara Ponce on August 08, 2012
The headline in Monday’s USA Today says it all: “In Historic Shift, Women Take Lead Role in Olympics.”
As I read this, the synchronicity of this message hit me. I’m hearing it in education, from my children’s principal, who says the new core competencies are collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking.
I’m reading about it in business publications, which state that the best leaders are the best listeners.
I’m hearing about it in my work, as I meet spiritual teachers, and I seek to share their wisdom through my own company Pranatude.
Now is the time of the divine feminine. We’ve ignored and suppressed our feminine traits far too long.
We have a lot to learn from our children. They get it. They live in a global world where diversity is the natural order. They live in a conscious world, where our connection to the planet requires respect for the earth’s resources. They live in a world where questions are more important than answers, and where learning is about experiences – not just reading.
I welcome this new world with open arms and open heart!
And as I’ve done this, my life has become chaotic. You can’t change that. We’ve always done it this way. That’s not how you sell. Do it my way or you’re outta here! That’s not how you raise children? They need to know who’s in charge! What’s wrong with you? Why can’t you just do it the way you used to, when everything was fine?
I’m using my voice now. It’s the voice of the divine feminine inside of me. It hungers to share, to be creative, to love, to understand, and to raise the vibration in my world and the world around me.
At the same time, I’m scared, worried, confused, and sometimes I fall back into my old ways.
And when I do, I take a deep breath and find strength in the growing community of the divine feminine. I’m grateful for places like BlogHer, where my sisters and I can share our deepest feelings and listen to and support each other.
