Powerful Speaking for Powerful Women

I don’t say this lightly: Experiencing Julie Daley speak is like sitting at the feet of a High Priestess.

Julie is deep and sensual.  Intense and oh-so glorious.  Soft and profound.  Her words issue a fierce alert:  Pay attention.  Listen.  You need to hear this.

  1. Great to here you talk Julie! I liked what you said about forgiveness. I am not sure I totally agree that forgiveness is a “power over.” But I do think that maybe forgiveness toward someone who has done a horrible thing to us can be giving up one’s power. I think as women we tend more toward forgiveness than we should. Sometimes we have experienced something that someone has done that we would have more of our own power if we were just mad and walked away. I agree that getting rid of the attachment to the “perpetrator” is super important. But isn’t it possible that we as women need to get in touch with healthy anger too? Sometimes forgiving someone inappropriate can be like apologizing for something we haven’t done. Curious to know what you think.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Shelley. Yes, we absolutely must feel everything, including the anger and rage. In the example I spoke of, I’ve done much work to feel that rage and anger, to move all the way through it in order to feel the peace I spoke of. I tried to bypass it. That doesn’t work. Yes, sometimes we ‘forgive’ because it feels like something we should do. True forgiveness eventually frees everyone…at least that has been my experience. It doesn’t mean you have to have anything to do with that person, but ultimately when we feel everything there is to feel, we can arrive at a place of peace…that’s been my experience.

  3. Such an interesting conversation. There’s a surface level of forgiveness, I think, where we believe we have forgiven but actually haven’t touched the deeper parts of our experience. What you describe, Julie, of feeling all the emotions present until you reached a state of peace is where the power of real forgiveness lies. It seems to me that what you were saying was that being in a position to forgive or not forgive is a place of having “power over,” and that the underlying feeling of that is sometimes one of dominance or control. To truly forgive, to get to that place of peace you describe, is where we reclaim a more nourishing sort of power. A power that is sourced in love and benefits everyone. Was I understanding that correctly?
