Following my intuition into the desert to reunite with sisters, with whom I have always felt connection in my heart. Dancing barefoot under the desert stars. Falling asleep with sand and dust all over my naked body. Peeing under the clear sky. Feeding the thirsty Mother Earth with my blood and tears. Crying from happiness. Crying because I care. Crying because finally I dare. Crying from the strong love that came out of my chest. It ached; it burnt my chest and watered my lips with salted tears. But I had never felt so powerful before.
We walk the Earth together. We breathe the Wind together. We sing around the Fire. And we let it all out. Together. We were strong before, but now we have found new strength in sharing. We, women, are about sharing. Our knowledge, our skills and our love. And we come together and weave it all together. Two hundred fifty women sitting around the fire sending their love out. And is just the beginning…
It took me some ten years to understand and two more to accept that being a model or a writer is just side projects. Your and my essential task in this life is to be a loving woman. A woman who loves herself. A woman who honours her body. A woman who gives love with every touch she does. A woman who empowers her man. A woman who creates family and warmth at home. A woman who stands strong on the ground. A woman who talks with plants and runs with the wind. She can give birth. She is peace. She has the lap he will put his head down. She has the hands their kids will fall asleep in. She has the whole universe shining through her. She just needs to open her heart and let that light out.
Let the love shine through you, my dear!
You don’t need to become someone. You don’t need to reach anything. There is no higher diploma or certificate. There is no bigger carrier waiting for you. This is it. And it’s huge! Your biggest gift is that space in your belly that can carry a new life and give sense to live.Photo by Renata Chebel
