Positive Affirmations for Women

5 Comments

(This is an excerpt from my next book, based on women’s spirituality and the feminine divine, a brief  “sneak peek”, if you will.)

The Physical Aspect

1.  This is my body…No one shall touch this body without my express permission; no one shall impose upon my body a physical action, intention, criteria, procedure, or judgment, that I have not expressly approved.  This is my body, created by the Mother Goddess in all the glory of her likeness.  Whether this body be large or small, fit or weak, whether this  body align with the cultural views and norms of my society or not; my body is beautiful and will be respected as such.

The Spiritual Aspect

1.  I will connect with the universe through the Divine Feminine, and through that connection with my ancestors and the root of all that is me…For centuries the Divine Feminine has been ripped from the heart and soul of womanhood, shrouded in stories of evil encompassing snakes and apples, betrayal and guilt. Womanhood needs to wrestle its freedom from this lie, to regain its strength and equilibrium through the power of the Mother Goddess.

Through the youthful exuberance of the Maiden, the fertility of the Mother, and the wisdom of the Crone, we have to pass on to our daughters the beauty of the feminine mystique, impressing upon them the reverence and respect that is its due. While the world still revolves around the decisions of men, it is women who harvest its bounty through their children, their art, their writing, their dreams, and their strong sense of nurturing. It is woman who builds up; and through her spirituality and connection with the Goddess, woman can repair the damage of previous generations, building new futures and opportunities for her children.

With our strong and renewed sense of connection to the Feminine Divine, the most important thing we can do is to impart upon our fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons the strength, beauty, wisdom, and power of womanhood at its most pure. We can lead them back to the Goddess, who is, after all, their Mother too.

The Mental Aspect

1.  I will not allow other people’s opinions to form the image I carry of myself…Whether these opinions are formed and passed on to me by friends, family, or foe; if these opinions are filled with negativity, if these opinions are laced with jealousy, spite, judgmental prejudice, ambiguity, cruelty, or ignorance, I will disregard these opinions.  These opinions will be shed as a snake sheds its skin, leaving renewed vitality and beauty beneath, exposing my true nature, in tune with the Goddess and a healthy ego.

  2. Beautifully written, something I shall read daily. Can’t wait for the new book!!! Thank you for the fabulous sneak peek.

  3. I am so very glad to have “tripped over” this post from last year. Where you state: “If we don’t travel the same spiritual path, apparently, we cannot travel together at all.” Unfortunately, I understand this comment all too well. My own family seems to feel this way and it has begun manifesting in the last two or three years, even though they have known my path for the better part of 20 years now. All I can do is let them know I am always here for them regardless. Sadly, it is my adopted family who follow various non-standard paths who accept me though our paths are divergent from one another. I think all we can do is remind people we are here for them whenever they come back around out of pain and loss. To treat them the same as they treat us is not worthy of our path, IMO.
