Carolyn McGee reads Chapter 20: Own Your Battle Goddess of Compassion: Using Voice Dialogue to Tap into Your Divine Feminine Power from the #1 best-selling book in several categories on Amazon The Wellness Universe Guide to Complete Self-Care, 25 Tools for Goddesses.
This excerpt from her reading shares Carolyn’s personal experience and introduces you to what she overcame through her self-care tools, which she shares in her video.
“What did I mess up this time? was the pervasive thought that ran through my mind when something didn’t go right in business or life. It flowed so quickly in and out of my consciousness that I wasn’t aware of it half the time. Even after I did a lot of self-development work, it still lurked in the background.
I grew up ultra-responsible and often took on obligations that weren’t mine under the guise of being helpful, which did bring me joy. Unfortunately, there were emotional attachments to giving and receiving for my family and me. Nothing was ever free. I felt this underlying string of expectations when I received anything. I eventually realized I also had an expectation when giving; perhaps it was that the person would love me or accept me if I did something for them. I got my validation and love externally by doing for others.
Part of my external validation was not following my passion for helping others by going into healing or social work. I’m blessed to have a highly logical and analytical brain, and I followed the family’s encouragement to go to engineering school. I excelled and worked for 25 years plus in high-tech manufacturing. I was very successful but never fulfilled.
I overdeveloped the masculine producing energy. The women I worked with were competitive instead of collaborative, and it was every person for themselves. Living and working in this energy reinforced that it’s not safe to receive. There was always a condition to receiving any support. It was also not safe to be seen as feminine. Being nurturing, feminine, or cooperative brought unwanted attention and sexual harassment.”
