Hey ladies, did you watch the 2017 movie WonderWoman with Gal Gadot? Well it was one of our top movies of last year and it had Olyinka HQ all up in our feelings. We came out of that movie empowered, wanting to break down walls and conquer mountains, basically it brought out our inner goddess. This movie was seriously amazing. We wanted every woman and girl to see it and every man to watch and take notes. We believe, the essence of whom Wonderwoman represents - courage, strength and power are characteristics we all have, we just need to activate it. So, we thought it would be fun to compile seven steps to activate your inner goddess and please note we do not accept or acknowledge any responsibility for the woman you may become once you've activated these steps... Just letting y'all know. Enjoy!
1. Your femininity is your divine superpower
As women we tend to underestimate our divine and feminine power and at worst ignore it. Lets think abut this for a minute... We can produce human beings, our bodies are human incubators, our brains can do a thousand things at once and as a result we can multitask with ease. We are nurturers and fighters. There's a phrase that says "it takes a woman to build a home..." and its absolutely true, if there are no women, there is no home and no future. So we need to acknowledge our power and activate it.
2. Know your power and activate it daily
Your superpower needs to be activated daily. even when you don't feel like it but please note, just knowing who you are is enough for activation to occur. Triggering your feminine superpower is a must if want to conquer the world so switch it on and switch it up! If you are a mother, tap into your energy to look after your city, your home, your babies and your partner. If you are an entrepreneur look after your business girl and if you are sister, mother, daughter, active your power in these areas, but whatever you, don't allow your power to lie dormant.
3. Surround yourself with other goddesses
This should have been no. 1 on our list but we didn't want you to rush out to find other goddesses until you activated your own goddess power. Surrounding yourself with other goddesses is a must. They will give you the necessary support and ammunition for you to be your best self, to power you up when you are not feeling yourself and supercharge your divine power. Again, please note, be very choosy with whom you select, they should be at your level or above and are willing you pull you up, be your ride or die, be loyal and committed for the goddess cause.
4. Remove people who dampen your shine
Now that you've recognised and activated your goddess power, there will be some people that will try and stop you from using your power. These people wont be so obvious to you at the start, but there are a few tips on how to recognise them, for example, when you say something empowering and you notice their face starts to screw up... Keep note! And if they continue to produce screw-face every time you do something empowering or amazing and even go as far as to say that you are being silly - remove them from your life with immediate effect.
5. Remove self sabotage
(negative self talk)
There will be days when you will have doubts about who you are what what you doing on this planet earth. This is normal, it's OK and please don't beat yourself up for thinking like this. It's a given that once you have decided to operate in your power, the naysayers, haters the doubters will operate against you and no i'm not talking about people i'm talking about the voices in your head. " Really Kathy , do you think your business will really work?... Now really???..." "Don't speak out, people will laugh at you...." and it goes on. When these voices appear your job is to SHUT THEM UP! Push past these voices and overcome these thoughts with positive affirmations, speak them out loud so those negative voices are subdued. These voices will be loud at first but continue to speak positivty over your life and you will find that they will eventually shut up.
6. Do not be controlled or subservient
What I loved about this movie was Wonder Woman's love interest, an American pilot played by Chris Pine, who was not intimidated by her power but wholly embraced it. He operated in his strength and she in hers and together they made a great partnership. Unfortunately we live in a world dominated by men who have managed to control and subdue women into subservient positions or situations. If you are in a relationship or a role where you feel you are being dominated. controlled or abused then please try remove yourself from that environment. There are organisations and movements you can connect to that will help you. You don't need to be silent, speak up! Your goal is to be in an relationship, friendship, organisation that will help you to operate at you highest and brightest. So do so without delay. Your future vibrant self will thank you for it.
7. Whatever you do, do it with confidence and boldness
