I create a safe space for clients, men and women alike, to cry, and assure them that the tears are healthy and will eventually stop. They may start again at another time, once the armor that has been created around the heart has been softened, but they will not go on forever. Christine Blasey-Ford for coming forward and conducting herself with dignity and self-respect during the hearings.
The feeling of having been kicked in the gut, and the deep ache that remains that in my heart after the roller coaster of raw emotions, is hard to shake or ignore. I trust that it will shift but right now I must give voice to the raw truth of my feelings. Clarissa Pinkola Estes speaks to the connection between secrets and shame. In my work and in my life I have come to see the relationship of secrets and shame to rape, sexual abuse and assault in all its forms, from single inappropriate sexual comments or threats to years of incest and cult abuse.
Silence and secrecy, by both the abuser and the abused, allows the abuse and resulting shame to continue. As women, we surely carry the generational secrets and shame of our mothers, our grandmothers and out great-grandmothers, as well as our own.
I ran for office, chaired committees, organized protests and spoke out for the respect, dignity, worth and freedom from all kinds of oppression. My first act of resistance was announcing to the Sister who taught my 2 nd grade class at Our Lady of the Valley, that I was going to be a priest. So much for the priest thing. I pulled back from my activism for many years, as I dove more deeply into my study of spirituality and metaphysics. Over the last few years I have been very consciously deciding where and how to contribute my energy to create a world that is more peaceful, harmonious and loving.
Marrying my inner activist and my Spiritual Peacemaker is no small task and one that I take seriously. I do my best to be aware of my thoughts, words and actions, recognizing that everything is creative, whether I intend it to be or not. And yet, I feel called to do more, to find a new way that honors both of these sacred aspects of my Self. How do I, how do we…create this new world, without falling back onto the old ways of separation, division, finger pointing, hatred and violence? These learnings are equal parts pain and wisdom. The having lived through it is a triumph of the deep and wild spirit.
Women have been opening the secret for some time now, speaking out individually and as parts of groups, such as those in the movie and TV industry and our young gymnasts. Each time a single woman speaks her truth it empowers and emboldens other women to do the same. There is a swelling, a movement that will not be denied any longer.
Each woman, and the men who love and respect them, will find their own way to support this movement. We can create another ending, one more in alignment with the just and beautiful world we envision. I would like to offer an opportunity for women to gather in circle, in person or virtually, to share our stories, be supported and step into our own expressions of the beautiful, empowered beings that we are.
