This work of women!
Yes. It is time for a revolution of women and path,
women and money,
women and business,
women and art,
women and marketplace.
We do not choose to give our works away for nothing.
We are not starving artists. We are not frivolous.
We are creators whose creations save lives, mend wounds, change the world.
This work of priestesses and practitioners of every kind is VISIONARY WORK.
Our work is vital. Essential. Needed.
This work of women must include creating livelihood.
This is not easy, quick, fun, or likely.
This may not be accepted or encouraged.
But this is what we must do.
Create an abundance revolution!
We are creating our own path.
We are creating our own marketplace.
We are creating our own money.
We create art. We work from the heart.
We deserve to be compensated.
We are creating our own
mystical cosmic luminous overflowing BANK.
A bank that does not cause, contribute to or condone
the suffering of others for profit.
A Women’s Bank. Believe it. Create it. Deposit into it.
Draw from it. Invite other women into it.
Enter the income stream in your little golden boat
and dream and work and pray and play and prosper.
Do not stop. Keep going. It will almost always seem impossible.
But we make miracles. Believe in you. In us.
Miracles are organizing themselves right now.
Around our dreams, our work, our visions.
Let us go out, armed with what matters
And with the prayers of our Grandmothers, shining!
