I think it was when the Wonder Woman movie came out that I started engaging with the word “unapologetic”. That was how Wonder Woman was being described as she stood forward in her truth: unafraid to be who she really was regardless of adversity or the status quo.

What needs to happen for us women to own a little bit of that? I see many women in my life apologizing for themselves in one way or another. “Oh, excuse me, I’m sorry.” When did this apology thing begin?

I’m not saying this to be rude. I am simply observing this pattern of how we, as women especially, often undermine ourselves. We make ourselves “less than”. We negate our point, opinion, perspective or way of being when we go around apologizing all the time.

Why do we make ourselves wrong?

I have examined guilt as this is a prevalent emotion that surfaces when people begin to take their power back. As they put themselves at the top of their own priority list (by the way, in the fleeting nanosecond that is your life, let me be the reminder that the most important person in your life experience… is you).

Dr. David Hawkins has proven through kinesiology that all of our emotions vibrate at a particular frequency. Guilt, as explained by Hawkins in his Map of Consciousness, is a lower frequency emotion. It vibrates at a low resonance. Whereas, love and joy vibrate at a high frequency.

This is important because your essential nature – your Soul – is the energy of love. It vibrates on the high end of the scale. When you are swimming around in lower frequency emotions these are just covering up the love that you are.

Guilt is a derivative of fear. It’s associated with wrongness. If something outside of us isn’t making us wrong, guilt is a way we make ourselves wrong. Women have been doing this over eons of time. It’s a form of self-punishment. Hawkins says, “guilt is really self-condemnation and self-invalidation of our worth and value as human beings.”

The pattern is that whatever we are doing, we “should” be doing something else. Or if we are doing something that feels okay, then we should be doing it better. Deep down, guilt is connected to the loss of joy and aliveness, two qualities representative of your true nature.

So, unapologetically, I invite you to be you. Take up more space, breathe as much air as you want, speak your truth, stand in your power. And, please, let’s stop apologizing!
