I'd like to share something that happened when our baby girl came Earth side and how it changed me as a being. I won't be necessarily talking about motherhood though.
Since we decided not to know the sex before the birth of our baby, nobody really let loose on stereotypes but as soon as she was born, we had the weirdest comments coming from so many people based on her sex.
There's so much conditioning that happens from our early childhood throughout our teenage years into adulthood that quite frankly we are a lot of the time living a false reality. Wearing clothes we don't feel comfortable in, dieting, applying toxic chemicals on our skin and hair... The norm is fake, made to have us contribute to consumerism, having us feel insecure as we follow blindly.
With E's womb-days/birth came so much light and power, which lead me to questions, questions that I had never thought about asking myself. And naturally without questions we don't often have answers... What was my truth?
Before asking many of these questions, I was acting, many of my movements were not connected to my inner and most powerful being. Myself a divine goddess had just given birth to another, a little girl that before she had made any choices had already all of the expectancies of society of what a woman is supposed to do, act like, look like and be. Why was I acting in certain ways, doing certain things? Feeling unsure I made some changes. I stopped wearing makeup, stopped shaving, stopped reading magazines, and surrounded myself by real things and people that inspired me. Nature grounded me, it filled my soul like no materialistic thing ever did. This gave me so much confidence, something so important I'd like to be transmitted to my best friend, this new found balance and harmony have been guiding me ever since. Now when I do decide to wear makeup or shave I know I'm doing it consciously and not because it's a rule to follow to be considered sexy or feminine. I have embraced my femininity by accepting myself exactly how I am as well as my choices and I want my daughter, my sisters all around the world to be empowered and not be put down for not fitting the mold.
