What is sparking in the hearts and souls of women, is the calling for us to claim our roles as the leaders of the Feminine Revolution. With the rising need of feminine leadership, there is a HUGE opportunity for women to step up as leaders in their communities and in the world.
This is not the kind of leader we think of now. The greatest gurus and authorities of the world are being taken down and are no longer valid. There is a calling to stake claim to Ghandi’s quote “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. We CAN make a difference.
But where do we start?
It is time to step into a new context of what we think “leadership” is.
Here is my definition of Feminine Leadership. Please note: That while I am gearing this message towards women, these traits and aspects would be perfect for a man who is looking to embody the new paradigm of leadership.
1. To thine own self be true: Knowing yourself and what you want. Understanding who you are for the world and know that nothing is going to keep you from your mission.
Being the change you wish to see has nothing to do with you: When we take the focus off of ourselves and what we will get out of it, and INSTEAD get connected to our commitment to others, we are more naturally inclined to operate from a place of abundance. In other words, we get out of our own way. You know when to shut up, because it is not always about you.
2. Walking your Talk: Understanding that YOU are the vessel from which transformation happens. When you are the kind of leader that does what she says through living by example, you are teaching integrity to others who walk the same path.
3. Being in tune with the cyclic energy of our bodies and of the Earth: In the real world this means knowing when to go into the void (to create), knowing when to take action (to gestate/give birth), knowing when to rest (to integrate) AND knowing when to let go (death/rebirth).
4. Community: You create a community of other leaders around you. You are not isolated. You know when to take a step back and let others lead. You know when to ask for help. Members of your community are inspired to take action by your example.
5. Embracing the Masculine within her: She understands the need for the Masculine in her. She can hold a sacred space, take action and direct her attention where it needs to go.
6. A Willingness to go deep: Understanding that you are a woman of range. And, to fully embody your leadership and power, you need to be able experience yourself in all of the aspects that make you a woman.
