How to Feel More Authentic & Empowered

Generations of feminine suppression have left an indelible impact on the psyche of women, shaping their perceptions of self-worth, identity, and their place in society. The historical subjugation, discrimination, and marginalization of women have created a pervasive sense of powerlessness and inferiority.


Women have been conditioned to believe that their voices, desires, and ambitions should be secondary to those of men. This long-standing oppression has resulted in internalized beliefs of inadequacy, self-doubt, and a constant battle for validation.


Women may struggle with asserting themselves, setting boundaries, and embracing their authentic selves due to the deep-rooted conditioning that has permeated their psyche. Healing from generations of feminine suppression requires a collective effort to dismantle patriarchal systems, redefine gender roles, and provide platforms for women to reclaim their autonomy, confidence, and agency.



Factors that Hinder Women's Authentic Power


5 common factors that can potentially block women's ability to be authentically in their power. Please note that these factors are based on common observations and discussions around the topic.

  1. Gender Stereotypes and Societal Expectations: Deeply ingrained gender stereotypes and societal expectations often restrict women's ability to fully embrace their power. Cultural norms and societal pressures can perpetuate the idea that women should be submissive, nurturing, or deferential. Such expectations can limit women's self-expression and confidence in asserting their authentic selves.

  2. Systemic Discrimination and Gender Bias: Women face systemic discrimination and gender bias in various spheres of life, including the workplace, education, and public spaces. This discrimination can undermine their sense of worth and hinder their ability to access positions of power and leadership. Research has highlighted the persistent gender pay gap, lack of representation in decision-making roles, and biases in performance evaluations that disadvantage women.

  3. Internalized Beliefs and Self-Doubt: Years of societal conditioning can lead women to internalize beliefs of inferiority and self-doubt. These self-limiting beliefs can erode their confidence and prevent them from fully embracing their power. Research suggests that women may experience the "imposter syndrome," feeling unworthy or doubting their abilities even in the face of success.

  4. Lack of Supportive Networks and Mentorship: Inadequate support systems and a lack of mentorship opportunities can hinder women's ability to access guidance, resources, and role models. Research has shown that women often face barriers in finding mentors, sponsors, and communities that can provide guidance and support in their professional and personal development.

  5. Balancing Multiple Roles and Expectations: Women often face the challenge of balancing multiple roles and expectations, such as caregiving responsibilities, household duties, and professional aspirations. These competing demands can lead to burnout and a sense of being overwhelmed, making it difficult for women to prioritize their own power and authentic self-expression.


The Impact of Unresolved Maternal Trauma on Women's Ability to Embrace Authentic Power

Maternal trauma, when left unresolved, casts a long shadow on women's journey towards embracing their authentic power. The bond between mother and child is foundational, shaping a woman's understanding of love, self-worth, and her place in the world. However, when maternal trauma remains unaddressed, it can infiltrate a woman's psyche, impeding her ability to fully step into her power. The wounds of unresolved maternal trauma may manifest as feelings of unworthiness, self-doubt, fear of rejection, or difficulty in establishing healthy boundaries. Unhealed maternal trauma can create a perpetual cycle, passed down from one generation to the next, further entangling women in the web of suppressed emotions and limited self-expression. By shedding light on this intricate dynamic and fostering spaces for healing, women can begin to unravel the impact of unresolved maternal trauma, reclaim their personal power, and forge a path towards authenticity, resilience, and self-empowerment.
