You are light.
Updated: Oct 14
In our gathering with Sierra Bender last night, we embarked on a journey of healing, resilience, and empowerment. Sierra's words touched the deep well of stories that reside within each of us – stories of hurt and power, stories that shape our lives.
Each of us carries a unique narrative, and for Sierra, her path was one of reclaiming her femininity amidst a backdrop of limited role models. She harnessed the powerful force of her righteous anger to propel her forward before a near-death experience and conversation with higher consciousness awakened her to the deeper truth of who she (always) was and the work she came here to do.
Our collective experience led us to explore the profound concept that sometimes, we disconnect from the source of love and hold onto feelings of unworthiness.
Yet, Sierra's wisdom reminded us that our pain can be our greatest teacher, unveiling the stories hidden beneath the surface.
The healing journey is a deeply personal one, with its own rhythm and pace. As we align with our core and make choices in harmony with our nervous system's needs, we find clarity, safety, and intimacy with life. Sierra's teachings illuminated the path to self-attunement, making our healing journey less overwhelming and painful and more empowering and enriching.
We reflected on the importance of reconnecting with our bodies, where much of our pain is held.
Sierra left us with a powerful challenge: to boldly reflect our light.
She encouraged us to embrace this light, even if it upsets others (adults can cope with being disappointed)– for our unique radiance holds immense power.
Our collective journey was a mirror of each other's strengths and gifts, a testament to the beauty of diversity and the wisdom we shared.
Sending heartfelt gratitude to everyone who joined us in this profound experience, and we leave you with the knowledge that you are all lights that the world needs.
