I grew up feeling pretty isolated.
I was homeschooled for a good part of my life (at a time when NO ONE was homeschooled) and often felt like I couldn’t connect with others. Once I started down a path of spiritual study I then really felt like I couldn’t fully express myself with my peers.
In fact, more often than not it was either mis-understood or shut down when I tried to discuss it with friends or members of my community.
I think this is where social media and the internet has been such a powerful gift for me, as I now get to connect with like-minded people from around the world, who also had felt isolated within their local communities.
When my family and I worldschooled in Spain in 2018 I was invited to my first “Women’s Circle”.
It was a group of about 15 women and I was surprised at how comfortable I felt. Even if we shared different beliefs and opinions around somethings, the group still seemed to surround me in love. It was a beautiful 2 hour space in time filled with warmth and connection.
I felt free to be myself, there was no pressure to conform, rather just hold space for each other which I’d only experienced in 1;1 spaces.
Like-minded communities can actually be as fluid as being focused only on support, love, compassion and holding space.
That’s why I was so touched when a member of the The Breathing Space referred to the program as an online Women’s Circle.
“I just wish you could see inside my heart and soul to see how blessed I feel to have found you and the sacred space you've created. I feel like the group is my sacred space, a circle of women I wish I had in my 'real life' .
What I appreciate most about The Breathing Space is that the space feels so safe and that even though we may have different beliefs, we all seem to be coming from the same space, from love, respecting, supporting and encouraging each other.”
If there’s anything we can all attest to it’s that 2020-21 have been an isolating time.
It’s not just been about lockdowns and social distancing, but even on social media and the feeling free to state what you truly feel and think.
I am so proud of the Breathing Space members and honoured to be able to hold space with them through that.
I’m also thrilled that they find it as exhilarating place as I do.
Each Thursday whatever members can come into our hour Office Time, join me for a lively talk about anything.
Cup of coffee or tea in hand, we’ve covered supporting individual members through crisis’s all the way to discussing philosophy, all while children wander in and out of the camera frame. I’ll admit it, we even had a quick chat about the best food for cats through to juice fasting, but I also always make sure that, by the end of the hour we’ve found our way back to spiritual alignment and grounding.
March is Manifestation Month for members.
Our focus in the Facebook Group (We went back to Facebook as Mighty Networks just didn’t flow the same) will be a 21 day Manifestation Challenge based on the book “How to Unleash Your Inner Money Babe”. The goal… manifesting $1000.
(Your brain loves numbers and manifesting some extra money is a great way of stretching the manifesting muscle. The book provides such a fun and light way of seeing manifestation show up in your daily life… and I really don’t align to the idea that money and spirituality can’t flow together. Money is simply an energy exchange, right?)
The Challenge isn’t challenging.
Daily posts with exercises that take 2-10 minutes each I would say and you don’t have to do them all. It’s fun and creates new flow in your life.
And then of course Breathing Space members get FREE access to the Manifesting Joyful Parenting Workshop at the end of the month.
I want to invite you to join me in The Breathing Space;
An online women’s circle where you can feel held and supported to speak your truth, feel the love and take part in some fun, vibrant experiences, as well as healing sessions and resources, in a chaotic world.
I hope you consider joining us before then, in time to dive into some manifesting fun.
Love and Light
