This for the beautiful Sensitive Women in this tribe...
Do you get 'Pure Nourishment' from the connections you have with your Girlfriends, your Female Besties, your Sisters?
I know I sure do...
Having recently moved to Byron, and plunged myself into various women's dancing circles and workshops, I am witnessing the power that the connection of sisterhood really has. When powerful feminine energies, all come together and unite as one... the result is a truly remarkable experience! To say the least...
And while it is scary entering these new environments, where my own fears of connecting, belonging, and being accepted arise... I ALWAYS walk out of these arenas feeling healed... and Purely Nourished!
In saying this...
I went through a period in my younger years where I felt completely alone. I felt like I didn't belong. I felt like no one understood me. No one cared. I felt that who I really was, was unacceptable. And no matter how hard I tried to fit in with this group or that, I just couldn't connect.
And looking back on this now, I realise this was due to not knowing who I REALLY was, and what my needs ACTUALLY were as a unique individual, and as a Sensitive Soul...
Dear Sensitive Souls,
Do you sometimes find it hard to get the support you need and find yourself doing everything all on your own?
Then feel totally exhausted? Resentful? Frustrated perhaps?
If yes... then I hear you!!
From what I see & what I've studied in Sociology & Social Work, our modern, Western, social structures are predominantly separatist in nature. Rather than living in open, natural community settings, where fellow tribe members are consistently available to support one-another (as seen in the original tribal cultures of this land), we are living with our small, nuclear family, in small-boxed houses, on boxed-up land, using boxed-up cars, to drive in boxed-up cities, that take us to our boxed-up offices/workplaces.
Boxes, boxes, boxes...
No wonder so many in our society experience loneliness, isolation and depression!
I too have been feeling this of late... especially due to the fact that I've moved to a new State, Byron Bay, where I don't know many people. And even though it is highly community-minded up here, and I was open and flowing with it upon arrival, lately I've found that I'm beginning to 'box' myself in again... slowly retreating to what I know, back to my comfort zone...
While I think it's ok to stay in this place when needing a break, time-out from the world... if this retreat time is extended, I usually feel a staleness, a sadness and a feeling of disconnection wash over me... and when it hits, I just KNOW it's time to get back out there!!
A couple of weeks ago, this doom & gloom feeling arose, and I just KNEW I needed a love-injection from home, so a trip to Melbourne was booked!
Now for the part about energy & support...
