How to Embody your feminine power and pleasure!
Give yourself permission to receive
I know how much you love giving. It feels natural and good to give to others. How much do you give to yourself in proportion to how much you give to those around you? If it seems that you are giving more than you receive, then something is out of balance and it’s time to take a look at what needs to change. Receiving is the essence of the divine feminine. Giving is the essence of the divine masculine. In order to remain in balance, it is important to be aware of these two aspects and to keep them in check. Receiving is vital to your daily life and is the fuel that will keep you going when you feel like you have nothing left to give. Receiving can come in small ways everyday, from taking a break to breathe deeply, to getting a massage. Let yourself receive compliments, gifts and random acts of kindness from friends and strangers and see how your pleasure increases.
Just say NO to over-achievement, supermom syndrome and being a workaholic
It’s easy to get wrapped up in achieving, working, goals and doing doing and doing more stuff. Life isn’t about stuff; it’s about being happy, or at least content and connecting to love. Loving yourself, loving others, loving your life. When we take on projects, jobs and stuff just because we think it will make us look better or is something we have to do, it loses meaning and ends up meaning nothing. Take a look at your life. Where and how do you spend most of your time? Does it fulfill you? Does it make you feel good? If you answered no to any of those questions, it’s time to take a close look at how you are spending your life’s energy, time you can never get back. If you’re not living a life of fulfillment, it’s okay, just take stock and see where you can eliminate, shift or delegate tasks and activities to lighten your load and allow more peace and joy into your world.
Dance like everyone’s watching
Own it girl! Maybe you feel shy or self-conscious or really out of your comfort zone, it’s okay, usually no one is watching. If you are feeling awkward, that might draw attention to you in a way you don’t like because people will be looking at you for different reasons. Any way that you can move your body, do it. Get comfortable in your own skin, whether that means dancing, walking, or swimming, feeling good in your body will radiate out to those around you, creating an attractive and magnetic energy around you. Take time to care for your precious body and see how your life and energy levels shift.
Listen twice as much (or more) than you talk
This is a big one. It seems easy for some people to carry on about anything and everything, but they’re not really saying much. Start noticing how much you speak and how much you listen. Are you always the shoulder people cry on, or do you never shut up? Listening is another form of presence, a very important aspect of relating. How do you feel when you are in the presence of someone who is truly listening? Do you feel like they really understand you or can empathize with what you’re going through? Doesn’t it feel good when someone is giving you her full attention? Like you’ve finally been heard and now you feel better. Listening is a valuable skill that I think has been rather underrated in our culture of non-stop media and fast-paced living. It’s time we stop talking and start listening, for in the stillness we find peace, compassion and wisdom.
Take out your tampon… forever
Tampons are a form of modern torture for women. Sure, we tend to think they’re convenient because they allow us to carry on with life as if nothing is happening, but what is really going on down there? You’re getting plugged up, that’s what. Your bloody power is being stifled and silenced by this simple act of sticking a man-made pesticide ridden piece of cotton up your vagina. You’re not a bitch, you just have a tampon up your vagina and you feel miserable. So do yourself a favor and take the tampon out, for good. Switch to pads and reconnect with your monthly cycle by slowing down, taking time away from work, school, family and to-do lists. This is your power time; the period when you’re most connected to the source of creation, life and renewal. Take advantage of this opportunity and change your pace during this time of the month. Let go and see how differently you feel.
Be fearless and free, sassy girl!
