Empowering Vulnerability (The Divine Diva’s Birthplace of Creativity)
I have been interested a lot lately in the topic of vulnerability. Perhaps it because I am taking a bold step and expanding my coaching business, making decisions, being more transparent, being bold. And in a world in which I was supposed to be nice and was complimented on being quiet, being bold and authentic and transparent is being very vulnerable.
Also, I am becoming acutely aware that many women I work with struggle with vulnerability. It is at the core of all defenses. In order to not feel vulnerable, I see women avoiding sadness, anger or rage, shame, fear, or disconnection. They avoid being successful, being big, being bold and loud and taking up space. However, when you chose to not feel the “negative” emotions, you also stifle the “positive” emotions. That is just how it works.
Vulnerability is defined as: ‘susceptible to physical or emotional attack or harm.’ And I thought, “Wow!” No wonder we don’t want to feel vulnerable! However, there is another way to view being vulnerable. It is the birthplace of our inner Divine Diva. (Yay!!)
Vulnerability allows us to have an open heart and be susceptible to love, joy, creativity, and feelings of connection and belonging. Vulnerability is a very beautiful, sweet thing to be in the presence of. I see it when someone softens a little bit more into their grief, or when someone gently reaches out for connection in a new sort of trust, or when someone makes a decision to claim a new, more powerful story for themselves and have the courage to start living it. I witnessed it when I was present at a birth; vulnerability and courage in one moment.
Vulnerability is beautiful. It is scary. It is messy. It is necessary for connection. It is courageous. It is a part of your Divine Diva, so let it shine out.
And it has absolutely everything to do with prosperity for women. Because prosperity it not just about acquiring. It is also about softening into receiving and allowing in the good.
I invite you to allow yourself to soften into vulnerability in one way, even a small way, today. Allow in the good. Allow in prosperity.
In my upcoming teleseminar that begins in June, 5 KEYS to Manifesting Prosperity in Mind, Body, Spirit, and Money, we will be discussing how to be empoweringly vulnerable in ways that will create more prosperity in your mind, body, spirit, and finances.
