Welcome back to our sacred community of womxn.
You are here today because you are free.
We live in a world with divine beings who have successfully taken control of their subconsciousness amidst their high performing lives. We have have been told that these incredible beings are titled; WOMXN.
As womxn, we have hid our powers for too long.
We have a responsibility to enlighten and encourage our sisters with bravery to adopt a new way of living; a life where their voices pave the path for our future sisterhood. The current continuation of dialogue surrounding empathy, compassion and intuition have been trending like pop culture. We must remember that these are not modern day elements, which suddenly have been created and rendered into our modern day beliefs. These are our values, our sacred gemstones and offerings from our ancestors and beloved mother earth.
The journey of the divine began centuries ago with our ancestors and their alignment in the stars. As the sun and moon hold wisdom and truth to our eternal powers, guidance also comes from learned experiences and community. My journey with the Love Letter Community developed in the early stages of my teenage years. I developed an uneasy distance to the teachings of my own cultural upbringings. I had many questions because I was never a conventional thinker. My participation in society was bold, full of passion & all my friends were boys. I maintained a distance with womxn for so long till we traveled closer to Toronto.
Meeting women like Mita Patel out of sheer delight and curiosity for one another's work, we built our relationship in an intimate setting without any foundation except that we were both inquisitive. Mita is my WCW for our workshop this week along with an incredible writer. Her blog 'She comes undone' is a publication of wonder and growth; learnings and great values. This week, I want you to encourage yourself to meet someone new, build a new connection and dive into a deep conversation without any barriers.
We are an ever growing community of womxn who are built from strength, compassion and have the capacity to adapt to change. As we enter the nineteeth week of quarantine, I would like to suggest that we all take a moment to appreciate how far we have come. Let us face the patriarchal routines with our feminine powers and decipher new challenges with solutions for our betterment. We must remember that there is a force inside us that has been waiting in our hearts with unconditional love and she has been patient. Let us hear her speak.
The problem wasn't in not finding the right womxn, but to learn how to trust (we moved quite a bit throughout Ontario as Abu was transferred). Trust, loyalty and respect help build admiration in a relationship, a friendship and it was difficult for me stay connected to those who I shared a year of time with till my adulthood.
What I've learned from my past experiences; having traveled often in my youth is that we don't find people to fill in our voids, but we learn how to build a home within our own paths of uncertainty. In the end, all of us have a story and we are grateful for the transformation that has taken place. The greatest adventure lies in the relationships we build with ourselves; those who we meet. The celebration will continue. Mita and I will be sharing why choosing the right words and writing your story is of value to bettering your mental and emotional health.
Join us as we connect with our sisterhood to reclaim the feelings when celebrating our individual journeys. I will be opening the floor for sisters to join us and share their achievements these past 5 months. You being here is an achievement. I will be announcing the winner of our incredible SELF-LOVE bundle with 20 other magical womxn. Thank you for all of your participation.
