Is it enough to sit around and talk about the way that things are? Does this really change anything? At an Esoteric Women’s Health event – Wellbeing for Women – in Melbourne this question was posed. The women in this group had been coming together for over a year and discussing what was going on for women, what was going on for ourselves, and we were loving it. Ultimately we were exploring the phenomena of holding back the true power of women.
Realising that everybody felt the same was important and had a very equalising effect. The honesty was a stepping-stone for the group to then be able to stop and look at the truth. The truth is that we, as women, are living so far from our natural beauty, our natural confidence and so very far from ourselves. It was felt in the group that night that we (women of all ages and stages of life reflecting women the world over) are living as a lesser version of who we really are and not from the true power of women.
We could see we are out in the world asking what it wants from us. Conforming, twisting, changing to whatever we can see the situation requires of us.
How much of our day is spent feeling absolutely comfortable in our own skin? How much of what we say and do comes from us and exactly what do we want to say and do? How much of what we really feel, do we hold back? At this meeting it became clear that sitting around talking about this isn’t enough. It is time for action, it is time for change, and it is time to stop holding back the incredible women we, each and every one of us, are.
Something inside of me changed on this night, something inside of me said enough. I will not hold back anymore. I will say how I feel, I will ask for what I need, I will share my wisdom, I will know my worth, I will definitely stop wondering if I am enough and I will just be myself.
This is powerful change and it is so needed. All I have to do is be myself, know that this is enough and confirm it with myself everyday in every way.
Women with this power are unshakable because they are real and they know who they are. They know what they bring and they love themselves for it. Esoteric Women’s Health and Wellbeing for women reignites this true power of women.

For further inspiration..
Being ourselves, opening up and letting one another in, as women.
From feeling unsure of herself to choosing to surrender to the true woman that she is.. one woman’s experience.
What happens when we peel back the layers of all that we do, and discover how it feels to simply be who we are?
