Imagine A Woman

A therapist friend shared this poem with me.

Private Yoga Instructor Catherine Tingey Santa Monica Brentwood Pacific Palisades Los Angeles

Imagine a Woman

Imagine a woman

who believes it is right and good that she is woman.

A woman who honors her experience and tells her stories.

Who refuses to carry the sins of others within her body and life.

Imagine a woman

who believes she is good.

A woman who trusts and respects herself.

Who listens to her needs and desire and meets them with tenderness and grace.

Imagine a woman

who has acknowledged the past’s influence on the present.

A woman who has walked through her past

Who has healed into the present.

Imagine a woman

who authors her own life.

A woman who exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf.

Who refuses to surrender except to her truest self and to her wisest voice.

Imagine a woman

who names her own gods.

A woman who imagines the divine in her image and likeness.
Who designs her spirituality and allows it to inform her daily life.

Imagine a woman

in love with her own body.

A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is.

Who celebrates her body and its rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.

Imagine a woman

who honors the face of the Goddess in her changing face.

A woman who celebrates the accumulation of her years and her wisdom.

Who refuses to use her previous life energy disguising the changes in her body and life.

Imagine a woman

who values the women in her life.

A woman who sits in circles of women

Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.

Imagine yourself as this woman.

–Patricia Lynn Reilly, M. Div.
