Thank you to all the Men in my life!

I used to think men were the problem. Then, I woke up spiritually and realized, that every man I had met or was to meet during the course of my life was mirroring something inside of me that I needed to either heal, transform or acknowledge. Every experience I had, whether I deemed it negative or positive was actually guiding me towards my own awakening as an empowered woman.
If I continued to blame men and not forgive them, I would actually hinder my own personal and spiritual growth. It was then, I knew that the only way through was by forgiving ALL the men who had negatively affected my life in some way and to be grateful for every experience not just the pleasant ones. I was to see the gift no matter how much pain or sorrow I had endured.  Being grateful to all the men who have crossed my path opened my heart to a higher love, a love I call, enlightened love.  Today,  I give gratitude to the men in my life. 
Thank you to all the men in my life who have supported me in becoming the woman I am today.
Thank you to the men who awakened me spiritually to remind me that I am much more than my physical body, my circumstances and conditions.
Thank you to the men who never listened to me as you reminded me that I was not listening to my own inner wisdom.
Thank you to the men who have purpose, passion and a vision for a better world as you awakened the fire within me to ignite and create my own reality.
Thank you to all the men who have dared to be the leaders of the consciousness men’s movement and stand for women even when there are no women in the room.
Thank you to the men who did not believe in me as you showed me all that matters is how much I believe in myself and to only focus on those who do believe in me.
Thank you to the men who trusted me enough to fall to their knees in tears and to feel the depth of their pain so they could become the best version of themselves.
Thank you to the men who chose not to love me, as you reminded me to stop looking for love outside of myself and to focus on my own self worth. 
Thank you to the men who were bullies, as you made me see the truth, that when I was aggressive, or unkind I needed to go within to nurture and heal the wounds of my inner child.
Thank you to the men in my life who called me a bitch, for now I am passionate about reminding women to no longer tolerate being called a “female dog”.
Thank you to the men who raped me even though you violated and disrespected my body, you showed me that the hatred I carried towards men years later would only bring more pain  and suffering. I would not allow these moments to define my future. You showed me how to forgive the cruelty of the “collective masculine” and in so doing, I reclaimed my own feminine power.
Thank you to the men who abused me as you gave me the courage to finally face, heal and transform my own inner abuser and self hate into self-acceptance, self-compassion and self-love. You showed me what I will no longer tolerate in my life. 
Thank you to the men who called me a slut as you reminded me who I did not want to be and to value my body as it is a temple that houses my soul.
Thank you to the men who were thoughtful and kind, as you paved the path for me to believe in men again.
Thank you to the men who spoke their truth as you showed me the highest level of courage that lives within a man.
Thank you to the men who were brave enough to have uncomfortable conversations as you showed me that most arguments are misunderstanding and we can agree to disagree.
Thank you to the men who sincerely apologized for their wrongful actions or unkind words as you showed me how to have a compassionate heart.
Thank you to the men who showed me the path to enlightenment even when I was afraid of my own light.
Thank you to the men who fed my inner demons with alcohol and drugs, as I know that to the degree I could experience my darkness is the degree I can now experience my light.
Thank you to the men who have opened their heart to me as you have shown me how worthy I am and that love is the greatest power in the universe.
Thank you to the men for all the ways you showed up, as you shaped and molded me into becoming the unstoppable and brilliant woman I am today.
 
Forgiveness and gratitude is a journey and it took me many years to get to this point. Many years of deep emotional and spiritual work which has transformed my life completely. The power of Gratitude can actually stop the cycle of negative experiences from reoccurring. This is why, I am so passionate about empowering those who are ready to become the best version of themselves. 
In reading the words above, let me know in the comments below what it triggers for you and where you are on your forgiveness journey towards the masculine. This is a powerful time for all of us. 
Together we rise!

Thanks for sharing so directly and openly……you are so right that we truly are the person we see our selves to be! I am sure that it was not easy to share so freely, but also very liberating! Sharing your darkest time so openly and the positive things you have gained from those experiences shows us that it is possible to learn from the past and use it to become the person that we want to be!
