You're creativity isn't art, or even being artistic...it is who and what you are. And learning to trust it means learning to trust your very nature...it all comes from within you!

There are many ways to tell of the journey going within. This is but one. The Red is Strong. Like Blood. Alive.

"Perfection is simply the seed growing into what it is meant to be. Perfection in creativity is the process of midwifing this seed into being."

"It is here, when we are connected deeply to life, that this knowing can be expressed through language.

Language is a way of communicating, and we have so many ways and layers with which to do this. Sometimes, our touch speaks volumes, our eyes pierce hearts, our radiance infuses wordless conversation.

When words come forth, so much else does, too. Our bodies ‘sing’ something into being, an accompaniment to the words, making them more full, more real, and more alive."

Why would non-masculinized expression be any less valuable or honorable? Only because someone, somewhere decided it was so…and we’ve adopted that belief.

If we’ve been educated and conditioned in a masculine-centric world, then what is our mother tongue as women? What I’ve come to discover is that it lies outside of this masculine-centric conditioning – and because it does, it holds a source of wisdom, creativity, and power that could bring about a radical shift in our culture. 

Perhaps this is why the Dalai Lama said that Western women would save the world – because there is a deep, untapped well of creativity and wisdom waiting to be expressed through women.

Happening right now...
 
New York City, NY -- This Tuesday, May 6th at 12pm EST, Girl Rising and Amy Poehler's Smart Girls initiative will be co-organizing a "Call to Action" Google Hangout in response to the abducted Nigerian school girls.

What's happening in Nigeria?

Tuesday marks three weeks since dozens of gunmen stormed the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria and abducted more than 200 girls who were asleep in their dormitories. Even as global media coverage grows, so do the fears of the families and communities of the missing girls.

#Bringbackourgirls

With every passing day, the crisis intensifies: where are these girls and what will it take to bring them home? Mounting outrage around the world is matched by an escalating desire to do something  anything  to bring these girls to safety and their captors to justice.

Inspired by the passion of our community, Girl Rising and Smart Girls will co-host an open forum: a meeting of experts, organizers and passionate global citizens to discuss what's happening and what we can do to help.

To that end, we'll also be sharing an "action pack" of tools so anyone can raise visibility about the unfolding situation -- and help build the momentum needed to get these girls home.

Go to www.girlrising.com or www.amysmartgirls.com for more information.

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls is a rapidly expanding online network and community movement whose aim is to help young women and the young at heart with the process of cultivating their authentic selves.

Girl Rising is a feature film and a global action campaign for girls’ education that uses the power of storytelling to spread the message that educating girls can transform societies.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Amy Poehler's Smart Girls. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

"Strip me bare of everything that hides my nature, that hides who I really am, like concrete laid out in large archaic patches across Mother Earth, keeping her bound, her bosoms unable to rise and fall with those magnificent in-breaths and out-breaths she takes as she prepares meals for her children."

"When we know we have something profoundly alive inside and important to express into the world, it is our responsibility to our own Soul to do that. That is the most important relationship that we can honor. It might be that ultimately no one understands what we say. It might be that people judge and shame. It’s no fun when that happens, yet the feeling of trusting yourself, your Soul, and your own voice, and standing tall in the expression of that trust is much more full and ultimately nourishing than the pain of any negative feedback we could receive.

The Mother Tongue is where we women ‘know what we know’. It is outside of cultural conditioning. This is a very important place. It is here we are able to see and know what is true for ourselves, and to hear our own voice, the voice of the Soul. Here we know. Here we see. Here we come to feel the power of our own being, and our own creativity, sexuality and vitality."

"Speaking to self in the mother tongue begins to replenish our own well of dignity.

We are wired to long for connection, to be heard and seen, to be understood. To be seen for who we truly are is food to the soul. It would make sense, then, that we would try to find the way to ensure these would happen – to be understood, to be valued, to be heard and seen.

But if we translate, and lose truth and self in the translation, we aren’t truly being heard or understood, because we aren’t truly being ourselves."

The first post in a five-part series on our Mother Tongue:

We don’t have access to the depth of wisdom our human culture could bring into the world as long as all people are translating rather than expressing their unique wisdom and genius.

We cannot be truly creative, we cannot be authentic leaders, and we cannot speak from the depths of our heart if we put our focus and energy into ‘translating’ what we say and how we say it rather than being authentic and vulnerable in our expression.

That’s not to say we should not utilize our ability to be fluid with our language depending on context and relationship. But rather, if a certain way to speak is idealized and held up to be the only ‘right’ form of communicating, then we all lose out because of what is being lost in translation.
