“Please don’t take this question as a criticism or a negative in any way. I’m only curious, so asking is the only way to understand. Why do you limit your ‘mission’ to only helping women?” wrote John in his email.
After thanking him for asking his question in such a positive way, I responded, explaining that I don’t exclude men, but my calling is to create a space of healing for women together with other women.
John was very understanding. He wrote me back to say that he got it. He knows that women speak a different language and truly open up when they are present with other women.
The following week, I hosted a special live event for women in Atlanta. I don’t know if you can feel it when you look at the picture, but there was an amazing energy in the room and a true sense of connection and healing together.
Are men and women different species?
In his book, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, John Gray, Ph.D., shines a light on ways to build better relationships by exploring differences in men and women’s communication styles, emotional needs, and behaviors—and how these differences affect the way men and women “give and receive love.”
I’m usually against labeling, generalizing, and excluding. No, I don’t exclude men. But I am passionate about working with women. I have been helping people heal for over 20 years. In the last few years, it has become clear to me that women need to be in sisterhood with women.
Healing together is like oxygen to women. We can’t breathe unless we share our hopes, struggles, and successes with other women.
Here is what I came to realize:
- Men think the truth. Women feel the truth in their hearts.
- Men heal in silence. Women heal in community.
- For women, healing together outshines healing alone.
Are you isolating, beloved?
“We are each of us angels with only one wing,
and we can only fly by embracing one another.”
—Luciano De Crescenzo
A lot of good sharing happens when I hold my women’s circles and live events. There is always a moment when one woman raises her hand and says:
“I need this sisterhood. I don’t want to isolate anymore!” And when I look around the room, I see many other women nodding their heads in agreement.
I get it! I tend to isolate myself. Big time. I am so comfortable wearing the “mentor hat” and taking women under my wings. I love seeing the admiration in their faces when I speak my wisdom, and it warms my heart to be part of their transformations. But when I have a difficult moment, I try to stay strong and convince myself that I have the tools to handle it by myself. That’s BS! Maybe I have the tools, but none of them can give me the gift of understanding and validation that I receive from connecting with other women who have been there and done that!
Healing together is the only way!
The world is intense right now, and we are being stretched out of our comfort zones! I am ready to take my mission more seriously than ever before and create a sisterhood for healing together. I hold the vision for you, sister, to grow, expand, transform, connect with your divine feminine power, and join me and your soul-sisters in living at full power.
We are truly all in this together, and our togetherness touches each other, heart to heart, and carries us in our journeys!
If you are ready to live at full power as part of this special global sisterhood and want to be the first one to know when we accept new members, click here and claim your seat!
