The Dalai Lama opened the Vancouver Peace Summit in 2009 with the following words “The world will be saved by the western woman.” Such a powerful statement from a true leader in peace but what exactly does that mean? What about all other women in other parts of the world? Perhaps in 2009 our western women needed a spiritual nudge from the Dalai Lama to courageously stand up and embrace their full potential. This spiritual nudge has not been for a select group of women but for all women worldwide. I believe all of us have felt the call deep down in our heart to contribute to the healing of our planet.
There has been a rising of the feminine energy for years now and I believe we are reaching an essential tipping point. More and more women are standing up and shining their light brighter and brighter in this world. We simply need to take a look at the courageous work of Malala Yousafzai who received the Noble Peace Prize for taking a stand for the right to education for all children. And of course there is Emma Watson’s speech to the UN on gender equality which created a huge wave of support and upheaval at the same time. Women all over the world are creating waves.
It is not one signal woman or one man who will make the greatest difference but the collaboration of all. We all need to stand up and share our message of love with the world. The world needs all of us to shine bright and be the lighthouse for others so that they can find their path and purpose. It is a time of awakening and we are all being called to wake up.
Let’s continue to encourage other women to stand in their power and share the love and light with others. Let’s continue to create events and opportunities to empower others to do the same. As we do we create a ripple effect that will defy all geographical boundaries and reach the heart of every woman and girl all around the globe.
If you are in the Vancouver area, join us on Thursday Nov 20th for the Women of Influence event. The 7 women are authors who are determined to make a difference in this world. We are all passionate and listening deep to the calling in our heart.
Let’s join our hearts, tap into our divine courage, expand our networks and contribute to this global healing movement. If you are not able to attend please share this event with others. The vision behind this event is so much bigger than we can imagine. It takes a village, a global village to heal our precious planet and we need you NOW more than ever.
Ways you can contribute:
- Follow your heart and create an event the inspires and empowers women and girls in your area
- Realize that you matter. Your message, your book, your song, your sacred gift matters to the world and will contribute to the healing of our planet. Shine bright in whatever way you can.
Thank you for being YOU! As you become a full expression of self, you become a full expression of LOVE and LOVE is the brightest light and purest energy to extend to another. It has the power to heal more than we can ever imagine. Thank you so much for spreading the word and sharing the love.
Namaste, Sue xo
