Every action we take can be an action of service and love. We built the We The Women community as a conscious and intentional action of service and love. In times when many have lost their connection to community, it is vital to join together. It is in this joining together, in this sharing of medicine, sharing of service that we elevate the human society. We are all related in the circle of life.
To stand together, to cooperate with one another, to co-create with one another is a return to our ancient teachings. It is through intentional focused energy of community that we begin t change society - change for a reality of peace.
It was shared with me long ago that to change anything one must engage, one must take focused action. Any change begins with a single ordinary action. It was also shared with me "to do the pictures". In December of 2011, we gathered together for the first time. We are Shaman, Priestess, Alchemist and Medicine Women whose sole purpose is to collectively work for the Cosmic and Earthly tribe of one. We gathered together in a sacred lodge. Our Circle of the Sacred Feminine energy had the focused intention of always being open with no boundaries, to unify and add our collective energetic flow to the world and beyond the sacred web of life.
While our gatherings remain private, as we use this time to celebrate and envision the future of tomorrow; we share the collective messages that are gifted to We the Women during our journeys and fires. We are of diverse paths, crossing boundaries and cultures, to create a circle that supports our communities.
Each of the Sacred Lodge Sisters is from different backgrounds and traditions. This circle of women is a divine orchestration of Spirit and our connection is strong in Spirit and synchronicity to truly build bridges between traditions in order to have a collective energy.
Through this divine orchestration of women, we uplift and carry each other's messages and medicines. This has clearly shown each of us it is a time of interdependence. It is a time of coming together as individuals to work for the collective - for there is power in community.
The times we live in allow us to connect across global, cultural, ethnic and spiritual borders. In some ways our paradigms of community are changing. Our ideas of time and space are changing. It is a time of prophecy when Eagle and Condor will fly in the sky together. A time when Eagle, modern day ways, flies with Condor, ancient wisdom.
Already in these four short months after birthing, we have brought the despacho ceremony online, bringing Shaman fire ceremonies, Priestess gatherings, and building of additional Peace Chambers in the physical realm. There are a multitude of collaborative efforts happening, from joint workshops and journeys to Peru to collaborative books being birthed. They said it wouldn’t work. They said it could not be done.
Community gathered with focused intent of creating bridges through love and service. With Your love. With Your service. With Your intention. With Your gifts. WE are changing the world one ripple at a time. I know I speak for each of the Sacred Lodge Sisters when I say ..... For this, We thank you. We are in humble honor and awe of this journey.
