The Goddess Rebellion: A SACRED SPACE FOR ALL THINGS FEMALE
I believe in promoting female empowerment I run a little community named The Goddess Rebellion (or TGR for short). You won't find before/after photos, posts about what I'm eating (or not eating), pictures showcasing a perfect life, or anything else of the sort because "perfection" doesn't exist.
With TGR, you'll only find real words, real thoughts, and real experiences. And that's it.
1. It’s a pivotal moment when you finally get tired of your own shit. 2. Stop being what’s stopping you. 3. You have the right to change your story. 4. To the healers and feelers of the world: be kind to yourself first. 5. There is nothing romantic about someone who doesn't show up. 6. You cannot control how someone else heals. 7. There is a purpose to our heartache. 8. Letting it go means letting it be. 9. The only way to get through it is to go through it.
Indeed, 2016 has been one hell of a year. As a community, we have collectively seen so many ups and downs. Yet we persist in spite of the struggle, continuously support our sisters, and fight on. The fact that these were the most popular posts, as chosen by you, gives us all hope for increased wisdom and enlightenment for the coming year. These are such empowering, powerful words that enable us all to take responsibility for our actions. We are not passive bystanders, we are integral pieces of the puzzle. We believe in ourselves enough to know that we can and we will evoke change. We have within us the spirit of the wild, untamable woman and we will treat our sisters like the goddesses that they are.
This year, @thegoddessrebellion community has amassed over 10.9K followers on Instagram alone, and its posts have garnered over 60K likes. For all of this, I thank each and every one of you profoundly. Cheers to a fresh new year, full of strong wild women working cohesively to change and wake up the world.
HAND LETTERED WALLPAPER DOWNLOAD - GODDESS MAGIC
We seek to help others because we care for their well-being and because we know what it feels like to be in dire straights. We are communal creatures who can feel pain vicariously when someone we care for is in pain. We have been healers from the very start. We have the magic of female intuition to help guide us with every situation and person we face in our lives. We are also akin to mythical creatures, able to embody vulnerability and compassion. We are wild women.
The word vulnerable is derived from the Latin noun “vulnus” which means “wound”. It defines a state where we are opening ourselves up to the capacity to be wounded.
Similarly, the word compassion is derived from the Latin noun “compassus”, meaning “to suffer together with”. Compassion, therefore, does not mean taking on the pain of someone else, but rather sitting with them through their pain and being able to relate to them through our own pain.
We need to be both compassionate and vulnerable in order to approach others empathetically — these two states work in tandem. We have to be both open to pain, and able to reach the part of us that shares a similar pain, in order to feel WITH the person and not FOR them.
With that, women have the ability to powerfully alter and heal the world. We are witches who can craft potions and balms to ease others' pain. We are mothers who care for our children and equip them with the skills to conquer the world. We are sisters, supportive of our siblings and authentically embodying sisterhood. We are daughters who empower our parents yet always strive for our own independence. We are partners, equal yet different and distinct, wild in our feminine ways and masterfully owning our power.
We are MAGIC.
If we use our powers wisely, we can cast a spell on those around us - infusing their lives with creativity and love. We are powerful beyond belief, and capable of anything our heart desires. We must never forget about the magic inside of us. Like the flame of a candle, it empowers and reinforces the light inside of others, too.
