The Journey of Woman expresses within the Infinite Universe. It is an intense love affair. As we grow and nurture that which is us truly, we awaken to our miraculous feminine strength and passion, to our profound softness, and to our own divinity.
The warm chakra colors speak of our connection to Mother Earth, our ability to create and passionately engage in being beautifully Human. We are magnificent powerhouses!
Our other half, our ethereal Self is expressed as cool blues and greens. These colors represent the heavens and the heart, the counterpart to our earthly expression. Together they merge in love. The affair is quite literally within us.
The merging of these two culminates in the yellow, which opens and reveals our true selves. As we release that which does not serve us, the pure white in the center brings forth strength, where the crystal, our Knowing resides.
The gold cord represents our journey, individually and collectively to this place of Knowing.
Each hand-sewn stitch along it was lovingly placed to represent a woman, in fact every woman who ever has or will step upon this earth. Whether we travel this road in groups or individually, we are never truly alone. We walk together united as one.
YOU are represented here. I bow to your courage, to your beauty, to the feminine wisdom that has guided you here and to this place, right now. I bow to All that will forever travel beside and within you.
