You Have Permission
This book, at its core, is about finding and maintaining balance, both as individual and as part of the collective. This is especially needed for women, for we give so much of ourselves (often too much) because we have internalized the belief that it is through our sacrifice that we do good in the world.
I, however, am starting to believe it’s quite the opposite. What we are really doing with all this sacrifice is creating an imbalance.
Everything is energy and energy requires balance. For us humans, that energy is represented in the masculine and the feminine. The masculine side manifests as the tendency to create and protect; the feminine side is intuition (or “knowing”) and allowing. Somewhere along the line we have forgotten how to create and maintain that balance, and this is what we must remember if we ever hope to heal ourselves and the world.
