Growing up as the only girl in a family with 3 boys was no mean task. I learnt to play rough as I joined my brothers in all manner of games that boys play. I had to shed some of my femininity in order to belong. This coupled with incidents of sexual, physical and verbal abuse that I suffered at the hands of family, relatives and those I thought were acting in my interest and so should have protected me caused me to develop certain survival patterns. Some of these patterns involved my feminine side freezing while my masculine side went into flight. I could not blossom as a woman as I adopted masculine patterns of surviving. I became so unbalanced that at one time I felt that I could identify less with women and more with men. I went through a large part of my life in this maze but deep inside my soul was crying to be freed, I needed to heal from the trauma I had suffered earlier in my life as a little girl and later as a married woman facing abuse in my own home.
It took the breakdown of my marriage more than 10 years ago for me to begin to awaken to what was happening to me and the need to search for clues as to what my Soul’s Highest Expression (SHE) was saying. I went through a period of soul searching, ritual of prayer and research and discovered a lot of information, all leading me to begin a process of personal and internal healing. Through the soul searching process, I got connected to what I am convinced is my global purpose. I also got to understand that perhaps I could use my past to heal my future and also assist other women to do the same. Thus, the idea of creating an environment where women who have suffered traumas from abuse, a life of lack or just discrimination on the basis of their gender , can begin to heal was born. As women heal, they get connected to their purpose and so they become empowered to create a full and fulfilling life for themselves which brings harmony to their families and the world at large.
This web space is the tool I wish to use to share with the world and like-minded people my thoughts and ideas of how women can recover, heal and be empowered both in their spiritual and physical bodies to prosper beyond measure. Women can rise from ashes and regain their beauty regardless of what they have suffered. Please join me here in advocating for the healing, collaboration and empowerment of women.
Looking around and talking to women at different levels in society reveals a deep seated pain and suffering that begs for an outlet in a safe environment. It is that safe , empowering and supportive environment that I feel called upon to create.
The Women’s Healing and Empowerment Centres project is underway and needs your support. The harmony circles are our free tool as women to begin to see the beauty in ourselves and others, promoting healing and harmony. All women are encouraged to seek out a circle near you and to join in the fun. Those women who need help with navigating their lives and relationships can benefit from Life and Relationship Coaching. Of course mature single women or women starting over and looking for love and partnerships can benefit from the free dating services and dating tips. All in all, this portal will expand with time to become a virtual centre for women’s healing and empowerment.
Resources are required to set up the first Women's Healing and Empowerment Centre in my local community here in Harare, Zimbabwe, Africa. To this end , I am pledging to use my talent in the first Fundraising Initiative for this project.

As a woman , I believe that UNITED we stand and DIVIDED we fall. Thus I am encouraging other women to join me in this new global community of women collaborating together with a global purpose and for the highest good.
