Last night I was with my Dream Girls – these ladies from 8 Women Dream – awesome women who do awesome things.
We watched a documentary called, WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?
I can’t get the movie out of my mind.
It brought up all my old feminist BS that I carry. I no longer thrive on man-bashing, so I had to re-think my feelings before I started my post. My sister and I were the first two women in the Laborers Union in Sonoma County, California. We got in because my Dad hired us on his road crew.
The men hated us.
We were screamed at, spit on and referred to as the “flag cun_s.” (yes, THAT word).
Now fast forward 30 years, and here we are again in this movie:
- still fighting for our place in the sun.
- still choosing to live from the creative feminine source, because, well because we are women and that’s how we roll.
I woke up this morning with Wayne Dyer rolling around in my head. Does this mean I want him rolling around in my bed?
Maybe . . .
But like my girl Oprah says,
This is what I know for sure.” Wayne is right-on when he says, “Always return to softness and kindness – stay low like water, slowly wearing down the barriers.
I have a painting in my home that I bought on vacation.
It is a curvy, beautiful woman sitting on a rock with some feathers around her body. The name of it is Strong Like A Mountain, Soft As A Feather. It deeply resonates with how I feel as a woman.
I’m thrilled women are connecting and gathering in groups to do work that needs to be done. I encourage you to do the same. Our daughters (and sons) will greatly benefit from the steps we take now.
There is a matriarchal re-birth happening and I am psyched to be part of it. Order the movie, Who Does She Think She Is, gather your girlfriends and watch it. You’ll be surprised at the strength it gives you.
Please comment on how you are involved in this movement of Divine Femininity. We want to hear from you!
And remember. . .

I don’t quite have a rap for this yet, but I’ll think of one this week.
Oh and one more thing – let’s have a vote on who’s hotter, Wayne Dyer or Anthony Robbins – just for fun. Don’t mince words, I want some spicy insight on your vote.
Keep on dreamin!
