When I was a very young woman I had my girl-friends and I enjoyed being in their presence. But what I really looked forward to was exploring and diving into the universe to experience all the new things for myself. I truly didn’t feel need to be a part of any close-knit group and I was often a loner, and that made me happy. As I was growing older and collecting more experience along the way I started to appreciate more good connections with other people, especially women.
But it wasn’t until I hit my forties when I truly felt a powerful and irresistible urge to connect with other women and form heart-felt relationships. Perhaps it was a Capricorn aspect of me that felt happy to be alone all those years but all of a sudden being always independent and solitary wasn’t enough. Perhaps it was also a coincidence that at that time in my life I was finally able to come across women who were meant for me to embrace me for who I was and accept me without judgement.
Luckily for me, I managed to forge life-long friendships with wise and spiritual women that happened to be on my path just at the right moment. Interestingly, my life took me on a roller-coaster of sorts and without them and their steady support I would be struggling so much more. Only now, from my current perspective I can tell how important it is for us women to have a sisterhood, to share our lives with each other. For many it is probably plain and obvious but for me it wasn’t until now. I feel so incredibly happy just knowing they are there for me. I guess, I finally found my own tribe.
What makes me even more amazed is the fact how the sisterhood works. Many of us experienced similar problems along the path and we know what other women are going through. Our bodies remember and know the pain, the bliss and ecstasy of birth, the joys of motherhood. We don’t need to use the words because at the core of our femininity is the understanding of these. Even unknowingly, we form a sorority where we hear for each other and support each other. I have experienced this amazing and powerful energy that connects woman to woman on many levels of being. The understanding and even quiet words of support mean sometimes so much to us. As we whisper encouragement into ears of our sister friends we give them not only hope but also love and sense of belonging in this world. The essence of that incredible connection can only be explained by unconscious feminine that is deep within each of us. The part of it is always there to support the sisters along their journey.
Having understood how important it is I am going to share it with my daughters and celebrate my friendships even more.
I am truly blessed to have found my sisters!
