Five years ago, Lindsay A Miller and I came up with an idea.
We would create a magical “container” where women could experience the lost, hidden shadow parts of themselves, bring these parts back into the light and heal.
I knew that this would allow them to bring more of their true selves into their work, raising their magnetic ability to manifest and attract more money.
We wove the work into my Art of Feminine Marketing Sistermind program by hosting retreats that combined deep inner work, business building strategy, and transformational photo shoots.
And it was good.
Then 2020 hit and we wondered, “How the f*%k do we do this and keep everyone safe??” Like the rest of the world we wrestled with how to deliver our magic, in a world now totally virtual…
… and waited
… the answer
… the freaking simple answer arrived one afternoon as we chatted on the phone.
“You know,” said Lindsay, “I’m more than 6 feet away when I shoot. We can do a social distance photo shoot and do the rest on Zoom.”
We booked it and brought this year’s Sistermind together on Zoom. Each woman bravely dove into her deep, core wound. In the wound she discovered her custom marketing language, words woven into her marketing that will act as love spells attracting the right clients and positioning herself as unique and rare in the marketplace.
And then, we honored the wounded part with a photo shoot.
She experienced the wound again. But this time, with the group beaming love at her, she softened. She began to fall in love with herself.
“The wound is the place where the light enters” said Rumi.
As the light entered her, each woman remembered the truth. She is Goddess created of Source energy, made for a purpose.
We gathered for the second day of photos and each woman stepped into her most powerful, glorious self. This is often more difficult than the wound. As Marianne Williamson said, “It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.”
But our container is strong, her essence refused to stay hidden. She shone.
Next week, I’ll be sharing the photos with you. I invite you to join me in celebrating these brave, beautiful, amazing women.
With all my heart,
