Deactivated My Facebook Account and Midwest Herbal Conference Thoughts

Just got back from a fantastic time at the Midwest Herbal Conference in Wisconsin.  So good to be back there!  Had a table at the event and met so many incredible women not only herbalists but also those doing Circle/Spiritual work.  All in all, the conference seemed to have an increased ‘spiritual side’ to it, and I am glad to see that as I feel it is so needed.

I did a pop-up workshop on creating recurring Sacred Circles where I met a woman who met me back in 2016 at the conference.  She had kept the divine feminine app on her phone this entire time but had not used it.  Just a few months back, she opened it and realized we had done new smartphone apps.  She found out that the Midwest Herbal was going on through the divine feminine app.

Nice!  I love it when I hear it is working!

I had fantastic days at the conference, learning so much and meeting so many incredible women.  And then I would return to my tent and go to Facebook and other online sites.  I had this realization that my Facebook use is not balanced and is too tied up in my ego.  It had become one way:  advertising me and the divine feminine app.  And then I would check the popularity of the posts and see the nice things my friends had said.  Shot of dopamine.  Feel good = 25 seconds.  Then gone.

Not real.  Not healthy.  Not balanced.

I would like to say that it is goodbye forever Facebook, but who knows.  In general, I look at Facebook and other social media as a necessary evil that I needed to advertise the divine feminine app. 

I also started to worry how would I stay in touch with my friends? But here’s the wild thing, ever since I deactivated it, more of my friends have reached out to me via text and phone calls. Well, I knew that! When you release one thing, you make room for something else.

Right now I am looking at the divine feminine app the same way I look at Sacred Circle attendance, those it is meant for, will find it.

It is time to Gather in person. And it is time to balance the world.

  1. Me, me, its me I am the woman who had the app on my phone all this time. I was so inspired by the popup I have already been working on creating a local group of women in my area and will have our Facebook group up and going next week. Thank you for the class and inspiration. I look to hopefully connecting more.
