Sacredness – The Truth Available to all Women

For many years I lived with depression, feeling totally hopeless and at the world’s mercy. But more recently, through attending Universal Medicine presentations and the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom I have come to rediscover that all I require is already living within me and the more I connect to and live from this space the more beautiful life becomes for me. I now love living, and working, where as I used to dread each day upon waking.

I have recently become aware of the feeling of sacredness that all women hold within. I am amazed that we live most, if not all our life, unaware that we carry such power and authority within. I feel like we have chosen to be led astray from knowing what is there to connect to and build a deepening relationship with, yet this is the very base of who we are as girls and women. 

What we offer to ourselves and those around us, simply by connecting to this sacredness, is a beauty and strength that is lacking in the world, yet it is living inside us just waiting to be connected to and then expressed from.

There is such a simplicity and clarity available when living from this connection. The connection I have offers so much support to those around me on an energetic level and I am amazed at the expansion I witness in both myself and them. When walking the other day, fully claiming my power and sacredness as a woman, I observed a 10 year old girl stop dead in her tracks and watch me, then she walked away quite tall and open in her own posture. This is amazing, she claimed herself as a woman.

Sacredness is an innate knowing and rhythm that lives inside all women, it is her connection to divinity and all the glory this comes with. It can be her guiding light throughout life if she so chooses.

I am slowly building and learning more about this natural, yet new way of being. The grace I feel within when I am aware of this connection is like nothing I have experienced before. I feel like nothing can touch me, that I am living in a life that is ready for me before I even walk through the door, the joy I feel is explosive and I love connecting to others.

I get to enjoy my body on a whole new level. I enjoy the sensations I feel within my body and the harmony and space that is forever growing and getting stronger. This supports me to enjoy any activity I am doing because I am doing it with and from this connection. This even includes scrubbing toilets and having raw conversations with others.

I am learning how to function with such a delicate feeling. I can work in quite a physical job with this connection, although I am slowly tweaking how I do this.  I work as a house cleaner and I work quite quickly. It is not the speed I work in that is changing but more my feeling of just being 100% in both my mind and body with what I am doing so as not to get flustered or caught up in what there is to do and the time I have available.

I’m not perfect, simply a student who’s forever learning. I can now truly appreciate those moments when I’m able to stay connected to that sacredness within during my working day, connected to me – a truth available to all women.

  1. “The connection I have offers so much support to those around me on an energetic level” Nothing may physically, visually happen but changes can also be felt and sometimes not. But that doesn’t mean that nothing has changed. It may just take longer to materialise.

  2. When we see ourselves as forever learning life becomes a playground that we can be loving in whilst we are not afraid to make mistakes.

  3. When I first heard the word sacredness I had know idea what it truly meant though I now know though observing those women who walk and talk this ultimate power.

    From reflection we learn so much from one and other.

  4. True scacredness is I feel, something I have just touched the very tip upon, although this is something that is held innately within us all we seem to know very little about it. There is so much more for us to re-connect to, feel and truly know and as others have shared this comes all from within our body.

  5. It is not just women that are playing small big time on this planet, so to are the men, we have been running from who we are both male and female for far too long.

  6. Yes a truth available to all women and we are reminded of it by the reflection of others who walk it in our lives. Sometimes it is a ‘chance’ meeting on the side of a road, other times it is in our families. What I know now is that we cannot wait for another to be that reflection for us but we must recognise that this sacredness lives within us all and it is for us to re-connect to and live.

  7. ‘I have recently become aware of the feeling of sacredness that all women hold within. I am amazed that we live most, if not all our life, unaware that we carry such power and authority within.’ Being ignorant of this feeling there was still a knowing on some level that I was missing something, even though I didn’t know what it was carrying around a tension and a sadness, of which I didn’t know the source. The tension I put down to feeling misunderstood and not liking the world as it is, and in my discontent didn’t compute the depth of the sadness at the feeling of having lost something most loved, burying it under a layer of function. Re-connecting to that sacredness for me was like unwrapping a present but the gift felt familiar, like I had come home.

  8. ‘When walking the other day, fully claiming my power and sacredness as a woman, I observed a 10 year old girl stop dead in her tracks and watch me, then she walked away quite tall and open in her own posture. This is amazing, she claimed herself as a woman.’ This alone shows how we observe others and are observed by others all throughout our day. Just being without even saying anything and the quality we are in is a responsibility we all have.

    1. Yes so tru, we have eyes and a body that receives pictures 24 hours a day, we would be wise to make this an experiment for ourselves so we can understand the impact of that.

  9. It is sad that we have to be reminded of our innate qualities, that we don’t live them naturally. It is sad that we have young women growing up thinking that they have to compete with men and be like men in order to achieve anything. True power is to live in a world in connection to these qualities, not achieving a goal at any cost.

  10. ‘Sacredness is an innate knowing and rhythm that lives inside all women, it is her connection to divinity and all the glory this comes with’. This is beautiful to deeply feel in our bodies Toni, and is something that can be built on throughout our lives.

  11. “Sacredness is an innate knowing and rhythm that lives inside all women, it is her connection to divinity and all the glory this comes with. ” Deeply holding and precious to feel the potential that is within us all.

  12. What a testimony! To consider that you have been no less committed to your life and work but now approach it in a very different way that offers you more space and grace is inspiring.

  13. From my own lived experience, I know the futility and the exhaustion that comes with trying to be perfect, so how refreshing it is to read your words “I’m not perfect, simply a student who’s forever learning”. Knowing this does away with right and wrong, and making mistakes, and in turn lets us know that life is a classroom, we are the forever students and there’s not an ounce of perfection in sight.

  14. So many of us women live a diminished life. We do not allow ourselves to feel our power and express it in the world. We are mostly frightened of this power in case it might be too much for people or even hurt people. It cannot hurt anyone lest we are confusing force with power. If there is any control in there it is not true power. True Power is in our Sacredness.

    1. I am starting to feel the sacredness of life but don’t really have words to describe it. There are words that I could use but I feel that their use diminishes the very thing that I am trying to describe. Putting words to formlessness is something that we’ve done for eons but it can’t possibly work because it attempts to tether formlessness onto the world of form and the world of formlessness is beyond our human comprehension.

  15. Toni your words about sacredness being the base of who we are as girls and women says much about society that so few of us are even aware of our sacredness. I know for me I am deepening into my sacredness with the support of Sacred Movement, and by reconnecting to my inner heart throughout the day when I don’t feel connected to it. It’s truly amazing to return to sacredness, there is much to be appreciated and celebrated.

    1. There is so much we haven’t been told or encouraged to treasure. Our sacredness is something that has to be felt from the body as you have shared here and then moved rather than discussed as a theory.
