The Grand Fears of a Tortured Heretic

 The Grand Fears of the Tortured Heretic.

This is a big deal for me to talk about. I’ve been kind of putting this off over the last couple of weeks because it has felt scary for me to come forward with this, but as usual, my bigger mission pushes me through the fears so I can be of service to you.

The reason why I want to talk to you about this is because I think this is one of those invisible conversations that needs to come out more in the “seen” world.

I know a lot of women — clients, colleagues, friends and myself included — who have suffered in one way or another from trying to come out or come more forward in their visibility and leadership, but for some reason they keep tripping up on it. They come forward. Then they go back. They come forward. Then they go back. Forward. Back. Forward. Back. Like a little turtle going into her shell for safety and retreat. Sound familiar?

I notice for these women that there can be a lot of confusion around what’s going on, and also massive self-judgment. Why do I keep getting stuck? What is wrong with me? Why is this taking me so long? Why am I so scared to become visible and be that feminine leader I know I am meant to be?

If this is all too familiar to you, I invite you to watch the video up top to learn about the truth of what may actually be going on for you, hear about some of my own experience with this, and learn some ways you can move through this so you can come forward in your leadership with more ease and grace … because we are waiting for you!

    Love seeing you on video Tabby! What touched me specifically about this particular video is your acknowledgement of how women are treated as second-class citizens in some religions. I felt this even as a child, but it seems so taboo to mention it in public.

      Hi Michele, It’s great to hear from you. I appreciate your reflection about the video, and specifically my comments about how women are treated as second-class citizens in all of the world’s major religions. It is something that has gone unacknowledged for way too long. It is not even subtle. But I think we have been so de-sensitized to it because we have been living in a masculine culture, with a masculine lens that honors and reveres masculine values. And we women have not been able to name this because frankly, we didn’t even know if we had the right to name it. For so long it felt taboo for me to talk about this in public, but at this point I can’t imagine not talking about it because I feel it is key to the betterment of our planet. I appreciate you sharing how you felt this even as a child, but it has seemed taboo to talk about it. My guess is that the more we women give voice to this, the less taboo it will become.

      Thank you for your encouragement Prema. I’m curious … as a woman who puts the Divine Feminine in the center of your writing work, what is your experience with this?
