I believe we sell ourselves short, and we have a tendency to live down to our expectations. We’re capable of much more than we realise.
Yesterday was International Women’s Day. Back some years ago, I’d had a little awakening. I’ll preface it with this: I can barely articulate what it’s like to be me, let alone understand what it’s like to be someone else.
I realised that there were a lot of women in my life who were, quite frankly, extraordinary. Running a household, a partner, children, job, with little credit and recognition given by others but little credit from themselves.
So, I wrote a little MindSpa piece about giving oneself credit, valuing ourselves. I rewrote it last year to be gender non-specific. (Most of us could use a little more self-worth, and you don’t need to be a woman to enjoy having an inner goddess!)
I usually start a little nervous when offering the Inner Goddess experience. I don’t know what it’s like to be a woman – hell, I barely know what it’s like to be me. It’s a bit more specific and directed than the other MindSpa Adventures. The feedback, however, has been consistently favourable and excellent.
On the Adventure, we meet a shaman, explore the difference between the surface us we’re conscious of, the depth and breadth of experience and knowledge that lies beneath it, and hint at what lies beyond. And then we head to the MindSpa to meet the Inner Goddess…
The Inner Goddess holds a gift, something valuable, for you. It could be: a message; something to see, hear or feel; an experience; or something else.
I don’t know what the answers were. I did see a lot of people smiling and taking their time reorienting.
