The Opposite Of Power Is Not Weakness

As we’ve seen already, Womanity is defined as a woman’s true nature.

If you simply take a stroll down the street, have coffee with girlfriends or simple chat with someone at work, you’ll witness women exercising their natural powers in daily life.

You’ve seen the girl saying “no” to a man trying to seduce her when she wasn’t interested.

You’ve seen the woman risking everything and following her dreams as she launches her own business.

You’ve seen the woman going through the incredible changes that pregnancy and childbirth bring to her life and body.

A woman’s true nature is made of deep forces that generate creation in many forms.

And creation is brought to life by action.

So what happens when a woman lets her powers fade?

Well, firstly, realise that she doesn’t become weak.

That’s because her powers are not over people but come from within herself.

And her inner-self isn’t changing, only her behaviours, emotions, and life-circumstances may change.

Every that is independent to who she is as a person deep-inside tricks us into perceiving weakness.

But a woman’s natural powers are innate, which means that they live inside of her. I view this as a universal birth right to all women. And men also have their own version of it too.

No matter what happens to you, the status of who you are remains powerful throughout your life.

When she isn’t powerful in her way of handling life, she experiences paralysis, not weakness.

Definition by Erich Fromm (renowned sociologist):

Power: The main task in life is to give birth to our self to become what we actually are.

It’s almost like we need to “birth” our own selves and our own inner-powers to become who we really are.

Here’s a story of what happened to me recently in witnessing a dangerous lack of Womanity powers:

“I was canoeing on a little river in the south of France with my husband and children. It was a very easy family friendly ride with only one real difficulty.

After an hour, we reached the tricky area with fast currents. Once in the current, we had to take a very sharp left turn. This required two technical paddle moves from the person at the back of the boat, “the leader”. Our guide had taught these moves to everyone before leaving in anticipation for this moment.

We were about ten boats going down the river. And we had to queue and wait a little before the speedy area so the canoes could be monitored and go one by one. Being the last canoe, we got to watch everyone float through this passage quite well.

And just as we began to launch into the current, the woman in front of us missed the turn and got carried out of control into branches on the other side of the river.

It all happened very fast and in a few seconds, her boat had tipped over. As she fell into the water with her two young daughters, we instinctively directed our boat in her direction.

Her little girls were about 3 and 9 years old. In canoeing terms, she was very much alone and very much in charge of navigating it.”

Just this image of her falling into the water reflects how many women often live their lives…

A woman alone, in charge of the “boat”, often feeling out of control with the overwhelm of challenging life tasks while taking care of multiple children single-handedly.

That’s a very familiar sight in our society and everyone can relate to this one way or another.

“The danger was minimal. We all wore life vests, the water current was generally not too strong (except for that little area) and the water was only chest high for an adult in most places.

Except for the fact that the youngest little girl didn’t immediately come back up to the surface.

The frightened mother was holding her older girl and turned her back to the river screaming in total panic and unable to do anything.

As I watched her, I was instantly struck and bewildered by the fact that she didn’t dive in to look for her baby girl, but instead chose to scream.

It might be a little bit of a harsh assessment, but her daughter’s life was in danger. If things were going to turn bad, there would be no coming back from this for her. This is every mother’s worst nightmare.

She had to take action, but not any action… the right action.

The thing is…

She wasn’t being weak.

And she definitely wasn’t being powerful either.

She was paralysed.

By fear.

By lack of self-confidence.

By lack of fitness and control of her own body (and I strongly suspect that she couldn’t swim…).

By a constructed habit of relying on others to fix her problems for her.

Despite her good motherly intentions, she was completely lacking practice in tapping into her natural powers. And now her daughter’s life was in danger and she had no clue what to do, she showed up completely unprepared.

The thing is, as I was watching the situation unfold itself, I was also very scared.

I was quite certain that I was witnessing the drowning of a three year old. But I’ve made a habit in my life to face my fears, doing the uncomfortable things for me and switch into problem solving before asking for help.

So I was able to naturally get into “action-mode” and jumped into the 13 degree water without hesitation to go rescue that little girl.”

In terms of Womanity powers diagnosis is a serious lack of power of creation, self-acceptance and wisdom. More might be out of balance as well, but this short interaction is all I had to observe her.

“Luckily, the waters had pushed that baby girl under the branches and canoe.

Our guide was able to catch her a dozen meters downstream once she resurfaced.

It all ended well and safely. But it could have turned into the exact opposite in a second. She got very, very lucky.”

So how ready are you? Are you prepared to take a chance on your own life and the one of your loved ones?
