Some time ago, I went for a family constellation session to resolve an issue that was very significant to me.
At some point in the process, I needed my mother to see me, so I could move on with my life, but when I stood in front of her, in front of the felt that represented her, she could not see me.
She told me she did not have the support of her female tribe, so she could not support me.
The "female tribe" that my mother talked about was her female family lineage (and mine): her mother, her grandmother, her great-grandmother, and so on.
So as part of my healing process, we reconnected my mother with her female tribe, and we healed that aspect so she could get support and support me.
Every woman needs the support of her female lineage.
This support helps her move forward, strengthens her, and allows her to feel whole with who she is.
Most of us do not have this support, in part because women have been oppressed and separated from themselves over the centuries, and tribal support has crumbled.
And so, we must heal within ourselves that disconnection from the female tribe, from the feminine-maternal essence.
So that we can fully experience ourselves;
So that we can be ourselves, live life to the fullest, and, most importantly -
To pass this notion of the female tribe on to our children, boys and girls, so that it may support them in their journey of life.
