The Powerful Feminine Conduit of Change: Transforming Fear into Courage

December 10, 2008

The discussion of the Divine Feminine is a topic on the tip of everyone’s tongue these days.  But the question is why?  Why is it women?  Why now?
At this time in history, the feminine conduit is far more open and poised to make a shift. In many ways women are now “bi-lingual”, speaking from both energies – the masculine and the feminine.  Women have learned how to speak the language of men via business, now seated in positions of power and influence more than any other time in history. They also have a tangible platform of commerce to work with in exhibiting and demonstrating the feminine principles in a way that generates money, wields power, influence and recognition.
It is from the business platform that the biggest, most far-reaching results for changing the current competitive business model will be seen.  The bottom line for the ego (which is all about getting) is “Money Talks”.  When your bank account is hit hard, as it has been today, you’re ready to hearreform is on it’s way.  These are the times when people have had enough and are open to doing business in a very different manner because the current fear-based model filled with lack simply does not work any longer.  
The stats are staggering!
Women are 50% of business owners in this country, which accounts for 10.1 million businesses that employ more than 13 million people.  Women will contribute $1.9 trillion in sales by the end of 2008.  15% of all Fortune 500 CEO seats are occupied by women.  These staggering statistics show the influence women have in the world today purely from positioning. 
As the feminine energy influence grows, so does a shift in consciousness in how we work, purchase and interact with others.  The power of the purse is no joke.  The Law of Economy is the wise and thoughtful use of resources.   Resources that are being lead by women who embrace the divine feminine within them selves will facilitate massive changes in business. 
There is an unspoken movement happening.  Women are leveraging their leadership to make great changes:  new health care plans, more creative flexible work schedules and supporting charities of their choice to give back to the community.  They are abandoning the self-serving narcissistic intentions that have run many companies into the ground.  And, where they cannot gain satisfaction in the corporate arena, they are turning toward entrepreneurship to create the kind of work-life-community balance they have not been able to realize in the current model.
Women are taking value stands for their lives more and more.  They have awakened to the fact that fearlessness, compassion and generosity are not weak attributes of the female leader but a necessity for success.  It is this softer expression that is needed in the world and in business today.  And it is what is emerging.
