I spent years learning how to love and understand myself—to honor who I am and what I believe in without making apologies for it.
This process of awakening to the spiritual experience of being a woman was not always well-received by others. However, I’ve also seen how this process of unfolding has propelled others’ transformation and growth—both women and men.
While I acknowledge that these words reflect mostly my own perspective, they also reflect what I’ve witnessed in other women and men who have awakened to the experience of loving and being loved. For this purpose, I humbly share my experience as an awakened woman. Honoring you all in the unique pace and rhythm of your souls, I offer these words as prayers for transformation:
An awakened woman can bring you to your highest destiny, because she knows the majesty of her whole being.
People may be profoundly intimidated by her, because she knows the depth of her soul, and is therefore not afraid to delve into her core—into the heart of issues as they arise.
A woman with such clarity won’t accept a lie, she’ll simply smile into your duality and face you. Her love and wisdom bringing about your own truth.
A woman with such compassion will hold your heart as she would hold a child. She knows the ways of love, as she has learned to caress and cradle her own being.
A strong-hearted woman will challenge you to stay attuned to your present. If you trust her wisdom, she’ll reflect back the best of you, like the moon to the sun.
You can try to fool her, but she will always be ahead of you—not to compete, but to meet you where you’re at and elevate you. Gracefully, she’ll take your hand and walk with you through darkness. You’ll be astounded by her trust. She’ll follow her own light and illuminate the path that is your way out.
She’s a seeker, a lover, a keeper.
She’s unstoppable because she flows soft and penetrating like water.
If you honor her, she’ll keep you nourished. If you hurt her, your foolishness will be reflected back at you, freezing your heart and evaporating the trust that was placed in you. This is not born out of vengeance or meant as a command. This is the feminine nature of energy, that mirrors back the trust and care given to her.
Sometimes, she’ll be of service as a magnifying glass: enhancing or constricting, expanding or limiting. Ultimately, she reflects what is given. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
To love an awakened woman, you’ll have to lose yourself. Give in. This does not mean you must abandon who you are, but instead surrender your ego, your habits, your wounds. Under the warmth of her being you’ll melt like honey under a blue sky.
Her ways are subtle and stark, simple and complex, sweet and bitter, soft and firm. Can you acknowledge the paradox of her essence? She wanes and waxes like the moon, constantly adjusting with the ever-changing phases of life.
If you don’t understand this, then learn to “stand under” her. Support her and witness how your soundness and steadiness make her flourish, at the same time as she supports you and helps you realize your highest potential.
She is a mirror, a warrior, a saint.
She will stand by your side, enhancing your relationship with yourself, helping you to nourish your own self-worth. Like a mystery, she’ll open doors to the unknown, encouraging you to grow in your faith. You’ll find in your deepest, most intimate meditations, that she reminds you of Spirit. She’s there to bless you, as you’re there to bless her from your own awakened being.
If you love an awakened woman, life’s journey will be like a smooth caress. You’ll find yourself doubting less as you become steady, calm, patient and wise. The stability and integrity of an awakened man serves as a blessing for her, like a kiss from The Divine.
Over time, your intuition will naturally reveal to you both when to be silent and when to speak. You’ll rise with the understanding that commitment is a state of being, like a light of remembrance whenever you feel lost.
An awakened woman and an awakened man both know that the most supreme experience of love is to feel whole. Only from this wholeness is it possible to sacrifice, to expect nothing in return and to share your being just for the joy of giving.
Love an awakened woman and you’ll find there are no real barriers to change, only the sweet ache of transformation that inadvertently turns carbon into diamond.
An awakened woman will propel you towards freedom, and paradoxically, you might find yourself searching for an anchor and longing to go “home” after a long challenging day.
An awakened woman is a never-ending wake up call. Her light will ignite your being, her compassion will cradle your fears and her love will be a gift from the Universe.
Are you ready to love an awakened woman?
And you…are you ready to be an awakened woman?
