Choice is a powerful thing, isn’t it?
It’s amazing to me that everyday when we wake up, we have a choice of how we experience our day. We may not have control over many factors – like the time our children get up, or whether they wake up with a smile or a scream, but we have control over how we interpret and react to them. When we choose how to respond – we become response-able for our lives. We start living out our sovereignty, our power to craft our life the way we want. Making conscious choices is about wearing our crown and acting like our life is truly ours.
For women, choosing our power has so much to do with staying in our body and connecting with our womb space. The womb space is a woman’s center. It’s is where we house our creative capacity and sovereign power, where our deepest desires spring forth. It is the womb, not the heart that is the wellspring of life for women. We want to root our choices from this place, this deep body knowing.
When we make daily choices primarily based on the tug-strings that pull on our hearts: a.k.a. the relationships that matter to us without rooting them in our womb space, we end up constantly say yes to relationships over our deep innate desires. Over time, we lose connection with what we truly want as an individual/woman. We then end up losing that vitality that comes from our core because we are not honoring the deep longings of our being. We start to feel adrift, out of touch with our true self and we begin to sense that something is missing.
If that is you, know that it’s ok. We’ve all been there. It’s easy to get into the habit of choosing relationships over ourselves. It’s actually not even about choosing between helping meet others’ needs OR ours. (Life is rarely about either/or choices, I think.) It’s about choosing to live the life we want first, and then creating relationships in alignment with those desires. It’s not a selfish way to live, it’s an authentic way to be. Our choices on how to spend our time, money and basically our life will begin to feel amazing because it’s aligned to who we truly are and who we want to be.
If the life we live is the sum of all our choices, then every single choice we make is a powerful one.
So choose yourself today.
Not because it makes you into a better mom or sister or wife. Simply because it is your birthright and responsibility as a human being. And when you make choices from your center, you shine brighter, love harder…naturally.
