Awakening requires no permission.

This is for all of the lovelies in my life...this is for my daughter who was told that "Girls can't change the world" by a boy at school...this is for every woman who feels the need to play small so that others don't think she's getting "too big for her britches"...for every woman who's been called "pushy" for stepping into uncharted waters...for those of us who know the suffering of being brutalized emotionally, sexually, physically and spiritually simply because we have a vagina and that is perceived as WEAK.

Awakening requires no permission.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Marianne Williamson
