Daughters of the Earth,

I greet you in peace, stand with you in solidarity as we collectively celebrate our feminine power. I thank each one of you for your presence here today.

 The truth is that there is a significant amount girls and women that do not have basic knowledge about the art of being a woman. A serious lack of knowledge of self. On top of this women and girls the world over are stereotyped, abused, and marginalized.

The wisdom teachings of girlhood, womanhood, and elder womanhood have laid dormant on this planet for quite some time. The link of grandmother to mother, mother to daughter wisdom has been severed in many of our families. Through adversity and hardship we have forged on and presently there is a flowering of and a release of elevated, rooted, and universal feminine energy on this planet. Women and men are using it to create the new and release the old. We want every girl, woman and elder woman to learn, claim and defend their feminine birthright, and to restore the link of this forgotten wisdom.

I am here today to remind you to shine bright in your beauty, full of value.   Do not allow society to diminish you. Stand in your full light. It is an honor to be a woman something that we should not take lightly or misuse in anyway.

Every day you have to fight.  You have to fight to live in your authentic self. For some of us, we fight to discover who we are and fight to live as who we are. One of my favorite quotes from Maya Angelou goes like this. “A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself”.

Mother Maya broke it down for us right there.  The average North American girl will watch 5,000 hours of television, including 80,000 ads, before she starts kindergarten’’. And we wonder why our children are confused. She is being bombarded with messages that say what you have is not enough, you need this, there is something wrong with you get that, you are at your best when you trust me and not yourself. But even though our children receive so many messages that tell them they are not good enough the truth always remains that we are united in our uniqueness. There is no one else on the planet exactly like you. Therefore you are literally a living miracle. I would like to invite you to take advantage of all the wonderful resources have here at Sanctum.
