Reflects the unique bond women share with Earth. Both have inherent wisdom, an astounding capacity to heal, and the ability to bring life into the world. This imbues a sacred connection to Spirit and an understanding of the interconnectedness of all things, all relatives.
Both have also faced harm and abuse; having their gifts and resources forcibly taken by those in a self-serving state of consciousness. When the views towards one change, the attitude towards the other will follow. Therefore by respecting the women in our families, communities, nations, world, we respect Earth and all of her many gifts and vice versa.
