Isis is an ancient Egyptian goddess known for her support and inspiration of women. Below is a message from Isis for all women on International Women’s Day.

Beloved goddesses, please know that you are powerful beyond belief, gifted beyond words.

Your time has come to rise and to be whom you are meant to be.

The time has come for you to stop questioning your worth and who you are and instead embody your purpose.

There will always be questions and concerns. There will always be those who don’t believe. You have the opportunity in this lifetime, however, to step aside and to follow your own path. This isn’t like the other lifetimes in which you were silenced and harmed for speaking your mind. This is a lifetime in which you can be whom you wish to be and be unapologetic for it in most cases.

I recognize that some of you are not in situations where you are able to be who you want to be outwardly. I am with you, and I will protect you if you ask for my protection. I ask that no matter your circumstances, you remain true to yourself, at the very least inwardly. It is too important for you to honor your needs and your truth – it is too much of a cost if you change for another’s expectations or desires.

There is much to be seen in the coming months. Your strength will be tested. But you will have the opportunity to rise and to become better, stronger, and more fulfilled. Do not sacrifice this opportunity, but instead take advantage of it. Time and energy are on your side. I am on your side. And your fellow women are on your side.

Remain steadfast and focused, and you will go far.

Take care of yourselves first. Take care of others only when warranted, and do not sacrifice yourself in the process. Women have been doing that for too long – it is no longer sustainable.

I love you.
