The stories we tell become the lives we live. Some stories help us actualize our dreams and embody our power. Some make us feel stuck or uncertain. When we lack confidence or centeredness, when we are afraid or anxious about the future, it is usually a sign we need to pay attention to the story we are creating. What story are you telling? What story do you wish to live?
These are the questions that led me to explore the stories of women through time, our myths and archetypes. Last year I began a Ph.D. program in philosophy and religion that focuses on women's spirituality and dove into ancient stories of feminine power.
There are stories rooted in history that can help us ground ourselves in strength and grow into our full potential. From these stories, whole cultures can shift. One story I wish every woman could know, practice, and live in day by day begins with these words:
You are a goddess.
There is a secret I wish every woman could know, a golden key that unlocks the doors to our personal power. This secret wisdom emboldens us to live our dreams, release people and situations that no longer serve us, and create life transformation. Discovery of this secret is the reason I wrote The Moon Divas Guidebook, and I am in debt to generations who preserved this knowledge so that we can share it now together.
