Heart and soul

“Heart and Soul”

Josephine Wall

For your consideration…….

Today speaks to the “heart and soul” of women. We have all heard and perhaps many have read Men Are From Mars and Women From Venus, a book that speaks to the difference between men and women. Women and men think differently, decision make differently and often prioritize differently, in general, because they are “hard-wired” differently.

We need to remember that unto everything there is a purpose. Today we are asked to focus on the purpose of women. Do we really think it is simply to birth mankind? Do we really think that these differences do not carry the same weight as that of men?

Men and women are of equal value and equal purpose. Yet that is not reflected in the reality of the world. Change in the world can not happen until the balance is righted…..not shifted…..righted.

Women or the feminine is more likely to listen to their body, mind and spirit. They are more likely to listen to their “women’s instinct”. Sometimes this is honored and accepted. Sometimes it is the brunt of jokes.

Priorities for women are often very different. Given the same pot of information, women and men will often assess it differently. This is not a bad thing. It offers up the opportunity to negotiate for the best.

Success for women today is often defined when she dismisses her natural instincts and is able to fit in and operate as men do and the world goes on. Or success is defined as women assume “women roles” and know “their place”.

The world will not change unless the masculine and feminine are balanced and honored. It is very unusual for anyone with power to voluntarily give it up. That means that women….the feminine…..have to stand up, own and take control of their power. It is not stolen. It has been given away. We are not victims. We are survivors.

It has been said here before and we are reminded again today….the world will not change until the other half of the population (women) stand up and assume full control of their power. This is a call to action.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take……

-Meditate/pray……listen to your authentic self. Feel its power.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Pay attention using all of your senses. Do not allow anyone to take your power. Do not be a pawn.

What made me smile yesterday…….

-Funny texts.

-Sun and fairly clear roads.

-Great pictures from Michelle and her family having fun in the snow in North Carolina.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
