Have you ever asked yourself why women aren’t valued more and why we still aren’t treated equally in the 21st Century? I have. So in honor of International Women’s Day, I want to share my thoughts with you. You may not like them. They go against the grain of what the mainstream teaches us. But I’ve been cleaning up my own beliefs about feeling valued and equal for twenty years and I’ve worked with a lot of women on this issue, so I want to share with you what I’ve learned.
The tendency is to think that people de-value us and are “doing this to us.” We’ve bought into this disempowered belief because that’s what’s been handed down from generation to generation. But here’s what I see: The only reason we’re being treated as if we’re not valuable and equal to men is because this is how we treat ourselves.
The only reason women aren’t treated as valuable as men is because this is how we treat ourselves!
I’m sure that last statement may get some a little heated. I get it. But stay with me for a moment. It’s all about the vibration you hold.
For years, women have bought into the belief that to be equal to men, we had to be like men. So we jumped on the hamster wheel of stress and struggle to prove ourselves.
But here’s the truth: WE ARE NOT MEN. Nor do we really want to be! Our natural way of being is to be intuitive and receptive, and by using these unique gifts, we go within for guidance and then take action. But when we jumped on that battleground with men, we disconnected from our true Divine Feminine selves.
The Feminist movement served its purpose. Like anything, when you want to make change you often have to go to an extreme. It’s as if we’ve been swinging on a pendulum, and now it’s time to land at center.
Coming to center is where you decide to stop de-valuing yourself and get off of the hamster wheel of stress. You make a decision to see yourself as a gift, tapping into the divine, wise, intuitive woman you were created to be. Instead of feeling as if you need to compete to WIN, you take a stand for loving yourself just the way you are. You embrace the Feminine path and trust that everything you need will show up as you love yourself unconditionally and say no more to needing to prove anything to anyone.
Trying to prove yourself creates a very low vibration. Whatever vibration you hold is what you’ll attract to you. Your thoughts and feelings determine your vibration. Maybe in your conscious mind you believe you deserve to be treated as an equal to men. But if you have a hidden subconscious belief that says you are not enough, or that you have to be like a man to get ahead, or that you’re wrong for being the authority of your life, and on and on, you will energetically shut down to receiving what you want.
Trying to prove yourself creates a low vibration and shuts you down to the abundance you want!
This is true not only in the workplace, but also in your relationships. However you treat yourself is what is going to show up in your life!
To be treated as equals in our homes, society and the world, we women have to step off of the hamster wheel and go within to clean up the beliefs that cause us to de-value ourselves. It is only when me make a commitment to heal and embrace our unique gifts as women will the world mirror equality back to us.
