Doing our heart work

Love the smell of lavender
and rose-scented geraniums

For a woman to claim her power,
  she has to look at herself deeply. 
  Though it can be daunting process,   
courage ensures her success.

There are things she must do; 
lessons to master, tests she must pass,
wrongs that need to be made right,
grief, anger, and forgiveness work.
She must let her guard down, 
making friends with her heart.

In the beginning, 
she will fall to her knees and weep
when she sees how she has hurt others
and how she has abandoned herself.
But only upon awakening to truth,
does her life begin to shift...

When she has faced her past, 
all that will remain are the lessons 
she learned and the gifts that 
each one has given her;
wisdom, compassion, strength...

Again she will come to her knees,
not because she is sad, 
but because she finally sees how 
beautiful the world really is.
