Women’s collective energy
‘Sisters in the sisterhood understand. To share the thoughts and feelings of your honest, authentic self is one of the best benefits of sisterhood. Our sisterhood is our safe space to share and heal, especially useful when it feels like the world is against you. To call another woman a sister is to say, “I trust you”, “I have your back”, “Your feelings are valid”, and “I believe in you.” As Angela D. Coleman
We women belong as a sisterhood, we always have, we have always had this connection but I think this hasn’t been as strong in recent years. Women used to have regular circles (meet ups), where they would sing, pray, dance together, connect to each other and nature, share energy and wisdom, in all generations. Going back in history women used to gather in caves, paint on the walls and pray. There has always been some sort of singing/praying together, expressing gratitude to spirits, to the unknown, to the creator – universe and women know very well, that energy and power of collectiveness is a lot stronger than one individual, so it felt right thing to do – to gather on a regular basis.
The format and activities of women circles has changed throughout the time but it is still there. With all of this technology, we find various women communities online, for example Wild Women Sisterhood (Facebook) or Meet up (I come across this for women in social meetings, spiritual, empowerment, ceremonial and the list goes on). A lot of them have regular meet ups in nature. Our online community ‘Rising her’ is one of the online platform for women to share information, exchange, learn and get inspired, find support and likeminded sisters.
So do your research, what’s going on in your neighbourhood? Find your women circle or maybe create one yourself! Inn your living room, in the park, at a community centre etc!
“We’re connected, as women. It’s like a spiderweb. If one part of that web vibrates, if there’s trouble, we all know it, but most of the time we’re just too scared, or selfish, or insecure to help. But if we don’t help each other, who will?”
