Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.
Now is the time to understand more, so that you fear less.
Above all we should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is a peace within the souls of men: we all have something we are dying to get off of our chest.
I hold no secret knowledge as how to fix the mistakes of generations past and present. I only know that without compassion and respect for all earth’s inhabitants, none of us will survive, nor will we deserve to.
It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences.
Hence, in order to survive we all need a witch. But not everybody knows it.
We need more witches – women leaders, teachers, seekers, givers and protectors of all things. We need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. We want much, we need little – just some daily magic. So raise your standards & witch-up!
Nowadays, witches use different kind of tools–the newest technologies–and they embrace their creativity filled with good instincts and ageless knowing.
Bulletproof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers and laser printers were all invented by women. A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug. There will never be a new world order until women are a part of it. Peace agreements that include women are more durable. Equality for women means progress for all. 2% of women are in peace education and decision-making processes and that is clearly not enough. More witchy-techie-sassy women, please!
Women should be the creators, not just the consumers, of our increasingly digital future.
Women make up half the US workforce, but less than 25 percent of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professionals. Despite the fact that 80 percent of jobs in the next decade will require technology skills, only 0.4 percent of female college freshman intend to major in computer science. The lack of female participation in technology and engineering is already having consequences not just for the ability to continue to engage, but for the future of innovation.
Either way, the next generation of emerging technologies will have little chance of resonating with women or solving our problems… Each of us is born with unique gifts designed to be contributed to the larger cosmic pattern. We can exercise our free will and cultivate that inner power or we can choose to not develop those gifts. But if we choose the latter, it doesn’t erase or invalidate the larger pattern we exist in.
Become a witch! The one who lives with purpose, says courageous things, and celebrates simple gifts, like sunny days or storms, or chocolate.
Sometimes she doesn’t speak for days, for months, for years. You see, there is something about words. In her hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. These words wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside of you they work their magic…Let me see you grow. Feel into your future. It’s authentic, inspiring, captivating, enigmatic. Once you are a witch, you are all that.
They say, you become what you worship. I wanted to become a certain kind of woman. I became that kind of woman. I am chaos. Balagan. Dark forest. Whirl wind. What you burnt, broke and tore is still in my hands. I am a keeper of fragile things. Don’t you ever forget what I once told you. That I love you. That I love you. That I love. You witch.
