The Power of Sisterhood by Lauren Lee

Now, more than ever, we are being called to stand up, speak our truths and live with compassion, authenticity and fearless hearts. Many of us are feeling a call to live more sustainably and protect the earth, to learn/share integrated practices which help us to live from a place of love and not fear. Our individual efforts are 100% needed for a collective shift…

This is why I teach yoga and meditation.

I know that these teachings have given me tools to step out of my personal addictions, and help me to make better decisions daily. And with my own healing, I can offer more support and love to those around me. I can live a life of service and have the most positive impact in the world.

Most importantly, I know that these practices bring people together in community and that ideas become more powerful when shared…

This shift in consciousness is the rise of the Divine Feminine. The energy of the female is potent — She gifts us the qualities of creativity, intuition, protection, holistic thought, collaboration, empathy and unconditional love…all of which have been ignored and abused within our society for far too long.

While men have an equally important role to play, it is women’s time to gather in sisterhood to encourage mass collaboration and love as the qualities our society will recognise and hold sacred moving forwards.

This is why I share the practices of yoga and mindfulness through retreat immersions around the world. I want EVERY human to first treat themselves with the love and respect they deserve through heathy lifestyle habits: high vibe nourishment through diet, sleep patterns, physical movement and time for reflection and relaxation to bring awareness to the parts of us we need to nourish (or begin to nourish) daily. I want women to learn to accept themselves exactly as they are, to see themselves as a beautiful and unique Goddess and live with more sweetness. Most important, I want everyone to experience the gift of sacred community: what it feels like to be seen, heard and felt from a place of neutrality. When we feel nourished from within and supported from those around us, we naturally rise into our highest selfs.

This is the power of Divine Sisterhood. Our sisters provide the platform for loving-kindness and a safe haven of support. Our sisters help shape-shift us into better partners, mothers and daughters. They remind us of our power and responsibilities as women of the world. They hold us accountable without shame or blame. They honour our uniqueness and help us integrate with tenderness. The power of sisterhood is fierce, creative, loving and a change-maker…and this energy resides within each one of us.

As we are all a direct mirror reflection of one another, it is imperative we take initiative and become mentors for the world. Women must celebrate and collaborate with one another in order to encourage those around us to follow suit.

And when enough of us support one another to take action, the system will naturally adapt to support us. There is a ripple effect which will spread far and wide.

But it begins on an individual level…

It is our birth right to step into our highest selves — to be happy, healthy and give back to the entire eco-system that is our global family. This is a call to action to create more Divine Sisterhood in our lives. Together, women can change the world. I feel it. I believe it with every single cell in my being. Things are just getting good and I am so honoured to be here, right now, alongside you.

The Divine Goddess within me, recognises the Divine Goddess within each and every one of you.

What if you woke up one morning to find that your world had completely transformed?  Imagine that everything you once believed in simply makes no sense anymore: your luxurious life, your successful career, your loving partner — all of it now feels like a never-ending dream that you’ve somehow been trapped in. It’s as if you’ve been desperately trying to wake up, to swim to the surface of the water, and just cannot break through. The dream, which had originally looked as though it would be comfortable and appealing, has now become a monotonous, endless nightmare. And then, as if by magic, the ground opens, and… a hole appears. You can take the plunge and escape, not knowing where your leap will lead. Or you can choose to remain stuck in the comfortable nightmare, in familiar territory.   

This happened to me, in London. Like Alice I chose to go into Wonderland, down the rabbit hole, diving deep into my inner world. I didn’t know whether or where, when or how I would emerge on the other side (or even who would emerge). And by choosing to leap I embarked on the most thrilling, enchanting, challenging, expanding, romantic adventure I could possibly imagine. It has been and continues to be the adventure of a lifetime.

My personal spiritual journey has been full of its own dynamic twists and turns. It began in Bali, where I reconnected with my Source, my unique mastery; this is the essence of who I am and what I bring to the world.  Each of us has this mastery. My own journey has enabled me to create my 7 pillars to living an extraordinary life with ease, grace and joy, where all aspects of my life can, and do, coexist.

Putting these pillars into practice, my physical world changed dramatically. I was drawn to the ancient rocks and expansive skies of Western Australia.  This in turn connected me to the spirits of nature and to the Milky Way galaxy.  The kangaroos, emus, dolphins, mongoose, spiders, snakes and sharks, all of them became my teachers.  I started communicating with the beings of the animal and plant kingdoms and began writing down the wisdom that started to flow through me. The hardiness of the Australian bush and the deep blue oceans supported me, and gave me the courage to implement what I’d received through my writings, applying the lessons in my own life.

I understood that we are all magnificent beings in human disguise and that it is the human disguise that gets fractured (not the human being). All we have to do in order to connect to the magnificence in ourselves and in others is to embrace those fractures unconditionally.

In my rabbit hole, I shaved my head, was headhunted to lead a global women’s network in the USA and returned to Bali via Mount Shasta in California, knowing that I was ready to receive and bring into fruition the calling of my soul.   

It was on Mount Shasta, on 11/11/11, that I was gifted a surprising entry into the metaphysical world of ascended masters (a world of which I was completely unaware at the time). It is a world that is now as real to me as the swimming pool I am looking at as I write these words. St. Germain, Swami Yogananda, Goddess Saraswati, Lord Shiva, Vishnu, Mother Theresa, the many Archangels and many, many other energies became regular visitors to my meditations and shared a whole new depth of wisdom with me. They gave me the practical processes, steps and actions to take to transform, heal and release all that is no longer in service to our highest good.  

My health transformed within a very short time. Parasites were gone, thyroid function returned to normal, irregular heartbeats normalized, high blood pressure was no longer an issue, type 2 diabetes disappeared, hormonal imbalance normalized and all other related disorders settled down.

I received a series of practices, meditations and vibration recalibration games that brought my world into alignment.

When I arrived in Bali along with my entourage of friends, guides and mentors from the metaphysical world, I received the mission of my soul. It is: “To expect and accept miracles, and to have them become the norm.”  I also received that a miracle is when something beautiful occurs that makes my heart sing. 

As I remained true to my Source, implementing the calling of my soul, I entered my own Palace of Extraordinary Miracles, The PoEM.  Miracles take place with the click of a finger, in the blink of an eye — that is the divine blessing I experience now. The miracles are there, in each moment. 

Now is the time to complete all that heals the past, because what is required as the planet activates into its new planetary grid has different frequencies, different healing vibrations and different resonances that werent available or accessible to us before.

As healers, weve already stepped into the calling of our souls, to play our part in the healing of humanity, of the beings on this planet, and of the planet itself. And weve done it, it has been achieved, mission accomplished! The planet is now in its new frequency. And that new frequency now requires that we shut off any attachment to the ways we knew.

So my invitation is to begin with your own self-healing, releasing yourself from attachments, reclaiming your original intention for becoming a healer in the first place, and stepping forth with a resolve to provide your unique capacity to heal, recalibrate and retune.

Weve moved for the first time into the energies of the New Earth. Weve shifted from the energies of command, control and competition into the 2016 vibrations of collaboration, cooperation, co-creation, coexistence, certainty, choice and charm. I invite you to leap up onto your surfboard and ride this wave! And I willingly and openly make myself available to support you, with grace and in collaboration with masters from this plane and beyond.

About Mynoo Maryel

Formerly a high-flying executive and pragmatic serial entrepreneur in Europe, Asia and Australia, beginning in 2010 Mynoo Maryel (fka Mynoo Blackbyrn) experienced a series of spiritual awakenings and connected with the true mission of her soul. She entered periods of silence, during which what she now calls “downloads” — profound wisdom about restoring miracles, childlike wonder and sublime well-being to our lives — were revealed to her. She then undertook for herself what has now become The Journey Into Miracles(sm), actively applied the received wisdom to her own life and transformed, almost beyond recognition. Her own inner guidance has become her guru and guidestar, and her Journeys, for herself and with others, have been expanding ever since.

Mynoo is now the founder and visionary for The PoEM (The Palace of Extraordinary Miracles), a movement dedicated to making miracles the new norm. The PoEM’s initiatives include transformational media, vitality and wellness programming, lifestyle products and services and eco-luxury resort and retreat development.

 It is Mynoo’s great joy to share what she has learned with the world, inspiring others to discover and refine their own inner guidance and trust that it is their best teacher ever, the “guru” they have long been waiting for. That trust in turn opens the way to a life full of miracles — those beautiful and awe-inspiring experiences that make our hearts sing, fill us with gratitude, and bring us truly alive.
