Talofa lava sisters,
I am honored and inspired to share this blog with you all as I have noticed a lot of women feeling the call to host their own women's circle. It is such a beautiful time we are in, 'The great awakening". Apart of this collective awakening involves the rise of the Divine feminine and women's wisdom.
Women have been gathering in circle for millennia. This ancient practice of coming together is vital for our spiritual, emotional and mental well-being. We as Sacred Women of the Earth are the embodiment of the divine feminine. Our essence and nature is to care, nurture and sustain life. With this responsibility comes deep sensitivity, intuition and empathic gifts.
Gathering in circle is an opportunity to open our hearts to one another. To share in a vulnerable way, being seen, witnessed and held in unconditional love by our fellow sisters. There could be laughter, tears, different traumas, emotions or celebrations that arise in circle. This offers us insight, inspiration and empowerment in our life as we are all but reflections of each other.
Another reason why we are being called to gather in circle is to reclaim and restore the village. We have been living in a culture and society of separation and isolation. Now we are remembering the importance of community and deep human connection.
We are healing the sisterhood wound. The belief that we need to compete with each other and not trust each other. We are uplifting, empowering & supporting each other on our path in reclaiming our full power and divinity. We each have a unique mission and purpose that only we can accomplish. There is no space to keep judging externally, we must go within ourselves and dedicate ourselves fully to our own life & purpose.
I have been holding my own women's circles for the last year as my work. It has been the most beautiful, fulfilling, humbling, amazing journey connecting with so many different women from all walks of life.
I will share a step by step process on how you can start and run your own womens circle from my own experience & what has worked for me.
STEP 1- Set your intention. Write down the reasons why you want to start a women's circle. Writing down the reasons you want to start a circle gives you your 'why'. It's important to have this clear & remember your 'why' throughout your journey. It takes courage to hold space and put yourself out there & sometimes it can be easy for doubt to creep in. As long as you can come back to your 'why' you will always be inspired and encouraged to keep going! Trust that this desire has been planted in your heart for a reason.
STEp 2- Knowing your role as a circle keeper. There are some qualities and attributes that are important to have when holding space and inviting others into this space-being warm, welcoming & able to create a safe vibe for others.
It will require you to cultivate a deep trust in yourself and the guidance you receive.
Although you are organizing and putting together the circle, it's not your job to feel like you need to 'fix' anyone.
A women's circle is a sacred & healing space. It is a place for stories, unexpressed feelings, and emotions to be heard and released.
Your role is to offer deep listening, presence, understanding, non-judgment & compassion. It's also not necessary to offer any type of solution or advice unless of course it is asked for.
When a woman shares whatever is arising for her sometimes just having that safe space to be heard and witnessed is healing in itself.
It is important to create safety by making sure that everyone understands it is a confidential space. So everyone feels assured whatever is shared in circl
