|| As they stood in solidarity around the burning fire, offering up their prayers for purification, her internal voice spoke from within. || “Divine Mother” she said, “I have a confession to make, I don’t trust women”. “How am I to serve the medicine of sister circle if I have a deep mistrust of women? Who am I to hold such sacred space? “ “Divine Mother, I ask for your support in healing this”. || She stood as witness to the courageous women around her, each one voicing their deepest fears as an offering to the flames . || Her time to speak out was fast approaching and she felt her heart beat begin to quicken in her chest. Her breath became shallow and her mouth became dry with fear of sharing her truth. Then she felt it, a warmth washed through her as a voice began to speak from within. “Be at peace my child. You have a deep calling to this sacred practice. You see my dear, it is through the sharing of circle medicine your sister wounds will heal, not only within you, but all women who gather.” || And with this she felt the flames ignite the fires within. Her courage arose as she stepped forward. She opened herself and shared her vulnerabilities, truths and fears with her fellow sisters. They each bared witness and held space for her as she released all to the sacred flames. || This was the beginning of her initiation into her role as medicine woman, in service of the divine feminine and the rebirth of the Goddess within us all. || This is my story..... this is our story Let us walk side by side, Hearts opened wide, In unity, Healing, reclaiming, remembering and reconnecting through sacred sisterhood. || Sincerely Serena Nicole xxx || . .
