As women we
have been conditioned to focus on the external instead of the internal. We are
in a constant search for perfection that does not exist. Perfection has become
synonymous with sameness. The purpose of the products created by FemniVison
Products is to give women something more spiritual in nature to focus on. The
first goal will be one of placing value on the whole person and realizing that
time must be set aside to regroup, recharge and become reconnected with a
higher source of energy, strength and guidance.
mediums of music, movies, and television have reduced women to the level of
believing that we are commodities and that physical beauty validates our worth.
Women are subjecting themselves to elective surgical procedures to alter their
God given differences in order to become homogenized clones of one another.
Women have been led to believe that they are only creatures of pleasure and
that they will be rewarded with a life of ease if they conform. Even more
alarming, is the number of women who are now willing to tolerate mental,
physical and spiritual abuse in record numbers and at earlier ages.
The number of women with self-esteem problems is staggering.
According to The Center for Mental Health Services,
95% of those who have eating disorders are women between
the ages of 12 and 25. In addition to eating disorders,
all cosmetic procedures tracked in 1997 by the American
Society of Plastic Surgeons increased in number by
at least 50% over the last 5 years, with breast augmentation
and liposuction more than tripling. Promoting diets
and diet products is a major industry in the U.S. According
to Advertising Age (2/2008),
the annual revenue for the weight loss industry generates
$60 billion annually.
The evidence of what we believe as women is apparent in what we
produce from our wombs. Children are shallow, lost and confused in a sea of
overwhelming information without a foundation from which to direct their course
of action. Women need rites of passage or celebrations designed to unlock and
manifest their spirit of love and creativity. In order to move women from
concentrating on the physical to the spiritual I have created a 30-minute spa
bath celebration. Each celebration is an incremental step that requires the
conscious effort for self-empowerment. As women we have to learn to embrace our
words as a bond between the spirit and external world and then our words must
be followed by actions.
