On Friday, I saw the news. I sat with my daughters as we watched President Biden address the fact that the Supreme Court had taken rights and autonomy away from women. I answered their questions about what this means for women and girls in our country. I sat in my car and cried.
And then I put on something sparkly and coached women who were also reeling from this news, women preparing to march and women determined to fight back.
When something like this happens, the goal of coaching isn't to feel better or good. It's not about finding silver linings or staying positive. The goal is to act from our emotions is a useful, constructive way.
On Saturday, I put on my lawyer hat and read the full majority opinion. I read that the Court thinks banning abortion is no big deal because "babies can be adopted or given up at fire stations". The complete disregard for women woven throughout the opinion was frightening. I cried again.
On Sunday, I charged a garnet (red for feminine power) and spent time thinking about how I could use my emotions to do the most good.
On Monday, I donated to the National Abortion Access Fund for Survivors, signed up for Operation Save Abortion, and checked out volunteer opportunities with Midwest Access Coalition. And then I put on something sparkly and coached women on living their purpose.
Today I coached more women. Times like this reinforce my belief that as women we must use our gifts and live out our purpose in the world. This is how we become more powerful.
This is how "women's rights" and "women's issues" become permanent rights and everyone's responsibility.
What is your purpose in the world? Mine is coaching. I help women find their purpose using Human Design and then coach them on how to make it the reality of their lives. Yours might be writing, politics, teaching, healing... the possibilities are endless.
Today is the day you stop selling yourself short. Stop believing the lie that what you want isn't important or doesn't make a difference. It is. It does. It changes you and it changes the world.
Not sure where to start? I can help you discover and live out your purpose. Now is the time to start living the life you're designed to have! Schedule a consult to learn more about how you can use your Human Design to enjoy your life without the pressure.
During the consult we'll talk about what's missing for you, where you want to be, and the process to get you there. You'll also get a copy of your Human Design chart along with some insights from me that you can start using right away.
