Today the topic of feminine collaboration was at the forefront. I journaled and the subject was top priority as the words flowed. Posts on Facebook, an email with a friend, conversations on the phone, through it all the topic continued to rise to the surface. On this day of a New Moon, it appears feminine collaboration is on the rise. In timely synchronicity, I also openly shared from my heart two potent messages in a group of women I value. This included a vulnerable newer level of authentic transparency I had not offered of myself to them before today. It was at first unnerving to be that open, but before I pressed the ‘return’ button to share it, I breathed inward to the center of my Being. I trusted myself to speak my truth and did it. The experience was empowering, and it did foster a collaborative essence among those women. When we are authentic, we truly do create the space for others to be the same.
In my collaborative work with Sacred Circle Retreats, this topic was right there today too. We have been planning an Awakening Woman series for a long while, and those plans have now materialized in a 5 week course being offered in early 2014. The registration just went live this weekend. http://bit.ly/AwakeningWoman
We are readying ourselves to collaborate at a whole new level.
All around me I see this collaboration, or the challenge to achieve it, unfolding. We are birthing a new paradigm. And today, this ‘birthing’ theme was evident too. As all these exchanges took place among women in my circles, a dear friend gave birth to her long-awaited dream-come-true baby girl. Another friend announced the birth of her granddaughter. The births were twenty minutes apart.
The simultaneous unfolding of all of these events today was awe-inspiring and even a bit energetically overwhelming. I found myself continuing to trust, open up, breathe and allow what wants to be born ~~~ in me, through me, among those I interact with, and in concert with those I collaborate often. More and more I find myself trusting and allowing it all to come to life in the world. That was my additional birthing lesson today. What an extraordinary time we are living in now. Much is being born. Many are awakening to their power to create, and their ability to collaborate.
The day, for me, was full of momentous messages of many kinds, phone calls, conversations, announcements and deep open sharing among many women in my life. I spoke with, wrote to or messaged with a wondrous array of friends today amidst much news and awareness. One friend spoke of having a cold. I was reminded of my own process the past two weeks. The parallels were there. I mentioned having had strange shoulder pain and difficulty sleeping last night. She gasped and relayed that she had experienced the very same thing with the same shoulder and sleep issues as well. I can’t say I understand everything that transpired today, but it was quite something. To add to the synchronicities, my dear friend Jackie L. Robinson shared this timely post at Sacred Circle Retreats, the virtual retreat forum where she and I collaborate with several wondrous women to offer a safe sanctuary for sharing, transformation and personal evolution. Here is her post. It was all about feminine collaboration:

I walked from the computer after sharing Jackie’s Sacred Circle Retreats message to see a Hawk perched on the wall behind our house eating her dinner. The sunset’s light was cascading, the mountain was colored behind her and she was illuminated.
Oh my goodness….. The hawk is symbolic of the messenger. Yes, I definitely received the message today, and I am taking it in. And this too was yet another synchronicity, one of my dear friends shared on Facebook earlier that a red-tailed hawk had swooped close over her head hours earlier. She was overcome by the close encounter. I felt the same with my sunset friend and had yet another magical bird encounter earlier. That one came via a text from one of my closest friends. She had a visit from a roadrunner just as we began sharing our text conversation. The last time a roadrunner had come to the window of her Texas home was exactly two weeks ago today when she and I were having a Skype conversation. She hadn’t seen one since then and here it returned again as we conversed. She and I marveled at it’s appearance. Hawks and a roadrunner… feathered friends of all kinds are making significant appearances. Native Americans and many cultures speak of animal encounters bringing teachings, lessons and messages.
So, yes, Winged Ones….of all kinds… I am listening… I am paying attention. I am open to the messages you bring. I am thankful, and I am in awe…… The message today was to give birth to collaboration.
YES. LET US ALL COLLABORATE NOW.
