This month in our SISTERHIVE® community our pillar from “The Sacred Art of Sparkling Shamelessly” is Deep Nourishment for ALL and our theme is Earth Mother’s Abundance. There’s so much to be said on this powerful topic (including on the podcast this month with herbalist Liz Neves), that I wanted to create a 3 part vlog series to share the wealth of spiritual teaching and resources with you;) Enjoy Part 1, Beloved!
The LIE OF SCARCITY VS the Truth of SUFFICIENCY
An old Native American saying goes: ‘Only after the last tree has been cut down, only after the last river has been poisoned, only after the last fish has been caught, only then will we realize that we cannot eat money.’
There is enough for our need but not for our greed. The current bottom line is of greed, money, profit, it needs to transform to love. Love or perish.
We must shift from the expectation to consume, to the ability to stand in our power and just BE enough just as we are. We don’t need another phone or dress or lover. This excess of choices from toothpaste to netflix shows to food has made us distracted and unable to focus on what matters most. It has kept us from our power and our devotion. The noise on the outside world of consumerist culture and social media and excessive apps has separated us from our souls and disconnected us from our essence.
“Seduced by materialism and worldly authority, women’s minds have been manipulated in such a way that they distrust their own innate insight, clarity and wisdom.” Sharon Rose
We have been suppressed from reaching our full (r)evolutionary potential by patriarchal structures keeping us weak and stuck in a feedback loop of “I’m not good enough, attractive enough, thin enough, I don’t have enough strong enough to do, x, y, z (insert here: start that business, find true love, write my book, follow my dreams...).”
This age of separation and scarcity is also closely related to our alienation from nature, our own bodies, and the Sacred Feminine.
The vast majority of us have also forgotten the sacredness of life. We’ve forgotten how to love and are consumed by fear instead. We’ve lost respect for each other and our Great Mother Earth. Life has been disregarded in favor of profit, greed, and personal agendas. Just in America alone, despite enjoying a level of prosperity that would have been unthinkable to our ancestors, many of us are still plagued by delusions of scarcity, competitive mindsets, rampant greed and self-centeredness. This has also disconnected us from deep financial nourishment as well…
