Imagine A Woman

Imagine a woman
who believes it is right and good she is woman.
A woman who honors her experience
and tells her stories.
Who refuses to carry the sins of others within her body and life.
Imagine a woman
who believes she is good.
A woman who trusts and respects herself.
Who listens to her needs and desires
and meets them with tenderness and grace.
Imagine a woman
who has acknowledged the past's influence on the present.
A woman who has walked through her past.
Who has healed into the present.
Imagine a woman
who authors her own life.
A woman who exerts, initiates,
and moves on her own behalf.
Who refuses to surrender
except to her truest self and to her wisest voice.
Imagine a woman
who names her own gods.
A woman who imagines the divine
in heritage and likeness.
Who designs her own spirituality
and allows it to inform her daily life.
Imagine a woman
in love with her own body.
A woman who believes her body is enough,
just as it is.
Who celebrates her body and its rhythms and cycles
as an exquisite resource.
Imagine a woman
who honors the face of the Goddess in her changing face.
A woman who celebrates the accumulation
of her years and her wisdom.
Who refuses to use her precious life energy
disguising the changes in her body and life.
Imagine a woman
who values the women in her life.
A woman who sits in circles of women.
Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.
And dear friends
Imagine yourself as this woman
A woman who always stands strong in her Powers

Just envision what you want to be, and believe it, and you will create it. You may even discover it is already you.
