One of the benefits of joining the Art of Feminine Marketing Magic Sistermind is a sacred photoshoot with the amazing Lindsay A. Miller.
Lindsay has the ability to elevate her subjects so their Divine Essence shines through the photos.
For my clients, Lindsay and I decided we would provide a full marketing deck: photos that represent both the “Away From” and the “Toward” motivators that their prospects feel when deciding to hire them.
The “Away From” photos are taken when each woman allows her deep wounds to rise to the surface. There are often tears of betrayal and bitterness, angry cursing, and raised fists.
Then, an amazing thing happens. As long held emotions pour out, the wound begins to heal. Having given its gifts in both words and images, the wound no longer holds the power to hurt. It becomes, instead, a reminder of how far each woman has come in her own healing journey. The photographed image becomes an important symbol of the healing that is possible for her tribe.
Without the emotion of the wound holding them back, each woman is able to fully step into her Divine Feminine Essence: The Goddess, High Priestess, Wild Witch.
These photos will then grace her marketing, highlighting the promise of what she can do for her clients. The photos are also a touchstone, reminding each woman of her Highest Self, the Creatrix who crafts her results in partnership with Source energy, manifesting her deepest desires into reality.
This is brave work for those who take part. In honor of these women, I’ll be re-sharing their stories with you over the next few weeks.
First up (more later): Alice
The wound for Alice is being insane, a liar, and a useless woman. Her fear of being thought of as crazy kept her hidden and silent as she pushed her magic deeply into the shadows so others couldn’t use it against her.
Years of being called insane by an ex-husband and a family history of strong women being sent to asylums, made her hold her tongue, kept her message locked in her throat.
“Seriously,” she told us, “a part of me is terrified of being locked up”.
Even showing up in our small, safe bubble was difficult. Alice was willing, yet her wounded self was afraid. As she tenderly, with the smallest of tantrums, tiptoed around the shoot site, I called to her, “Think of your children, your grandchildren. Think of them inheriting your pain and your lack. Think of them flailing themselves because that is the family pattern you are modeling.”
Alice sat in such stillness as the pain of this vision washed over her.
Stillness is not generally good for a photographer, but in Alice’s case, the sadness that crossed her face stirred us all. Lindsay focused and shot.
And then Alice was done with hiding. She sat stunned for a moment with empty space inside of her where the wound had previously lived.
“Oh wow,” She said, “Oh, I feel so light.”
Then the power poured in. Alice felt it, we felt it. The light of being a magical being filled her.
“Oh YES,” she said.
By the Goddess photoshoot the next day, the power in Alice had intensified.
Her hair whipped around her in a glorious cascade of a woman set free. She raised her arms and called the Divine Feminine to her, filling her.
In that moment, Alice remembered who she is, a wise and powerful Goddess standing in a human body to heal those whose lives she touches.
We witnessed her and were called into our own divinity, our own Goddess.
Thank you Alice!
