Have you heard about the "Pussy Dialogues"? Its a space I opened, I guess a year or so ago, for women to talk consciously about our bodies, our cycles, our relationships and our sexuality, without any judgement or advice.
Within the Temple of Sacred Womanhood it's also a space for learning from each other and exploring practices that enhance our radiance, confidence and love of life.
Each time I open the Pussy Dialogues it's super lively and fun. I get the feedback that it brings so much relief to finally have these conversations.
It seems to take some emotional charge out of where we might otherwise be feeling frustrated, confused, sad, ashamed or lonely.
Through sharing and connection we realise we are not alone, there is nothing to be ashamed of, we are all so similar and we are definitely very loveable. Oh my goddess, we realise how absolutely incredible we are as women, in these amazing bodies.
Welcome friends, to a Community Grieving and Loving space, supported by ceremonial Cacao on 1 September 2019 in Rolle, Switzerland. It will be a space for us to come together to open our hearts to FEEL all that it means to be alive on this planet today. Please see full details at the bottom of this article.
There is so much pain and suffering, personal and collective, near and far, and it can feel unbearable to feel it, and even moreso to feel it alone.
I recently returned from the wild nature of Sweden and a deeply transformative experience of empowering the masculine within. One of the most important gifts of growth that I received during this retreat with Estera Saraswati and our team was to feel the pain of my heart opening.
My personal intention was to open the heart of my inner warrior, for my masculine to have the courage to really see and feel more, and take action from a place of love, to show how much he cares, standing up for...
It has a strong pull on me, the zombie state
It’s so easy to belong
Such a generous welcome into accepted norms
Succumbing to distractions I got tricked
By my own mind
I thought it was my own choice
Betrayed, manipulated by an invisible force
At first it didn’t feel good, discomfort in my body
The weight of a heavy cloak
Aggressions of a modern kind
I contracted, angry, fighting, flames burning within
Ah, but the bliss of numbness called
It lured me in, slowly, like an incoming fog
I hardly noticed myself falling asleep
The part of me that was so willing to give up
Release all responsibility, not answer to any call
It’s all too much, the world is a mess, why bother
Ah it’s oh so welcoming this sleepiness
Watching the world pass by, corrupt, destruct
Nothing can touch me here
I see and I hear but I do not feel
I play the game
Cement has hardened around my heart
Like the cement that suffocates life all around me
Disgust and despair
Dear ones, Wow! More intense times! Solar and lunar eclipses, five planets in retrograde….. full moon today.... I have waves of tiredness, bursts of energy to let-go and transform everything, my mind moving from anxiety to confusion to blissful spaciousness, and a range of emotions washing through. Fun!
Whether you're getting downloads or upgrades, shifts in evolutionary consciousness, feeling like you know nothing at all, your life is stuck, your world is falling apart, you're on the brink of the change you've been dreaming of.... or you're just chilling on a beach somewhere.... my advice for awakened living right now is ....
'stay calm - keep cool'!
Act like a buddhist monk or wise old witch, with an all-knowing, compassionate and fearless sense of humour, giggling as you watch the crazy wisdom of the universe unfold and do her thing to wake us all up.
Take a few breaths. Lie in the grass. Fall asleep. Meditate. Eat some water melon. Be...
With the ecstatic force of life bursting open all around us, Spring can have you exploding with energy, overwhelmed with anxiety, swimming in emotions, or wiped out with exhaustion.
Isn't that interesting?! It all comes from the same source of energy and natural cycle of life. However, your experience at any moment depends on how you receive, direct and manage energy in the container of your body, and whether your energy channels are open for the flow of life through you.
Respecting and surrendering to the cycles of nature and laws of energy (outside and inside of you), and learning to navigate the emotional-energetic 'language' or intelligence of your body, will allow you to surf the waves of life, and flow with more joy, ease and vitality.
Emotion = Energy in Motion (or not if you don't allow it!)
Unfortunately our societal norms tend to be built on conquering, suppressing, managing and denying the natural...
Your body is a Temple. You are a sacred portal of Life. You hold the wisdom of the Universe within you.
You are an absolutely magnificent expression of the Divine. You are sooooooo sooooooo sooooooo worthy of Love. Oh my goddess, why on Earth wouldn't you be?!
Please, please honour and allow to be honoured this incredible vessel of Love, your body Temple.
I want every woman to turn-on her inner fire
and be a blazing glory of feminine wisdom rising on this planet for the benefit of all.
It hurts me deeply to feel a girl or woman holding shame around her body and her womanhood.
It makes me very angry to see any disrespect toward a woman's body (girl, boy or man's too for that matter).
The vulnerability and beauty of the body is something I hold sacred.
Why so? Because I know that the body is our portal to the Divine. It is through our bodies that we access incredible wisdom, connection, intimacy, power and love. Our bodies are perfect expressions...
Sister, Have you experienced what it feels like to be celebrated by other women?
Have you felt the power of being seen, felt, heard and unconditionally loved by other women, no matter how messy, broken, successful or radiant you are?
Do you have a group of women who are there to hold you, support you and uplift you through the highs and lows of life?
I know many of you here locally, and we've shared some pretty powerful and intimate moments. I know you are warriors and superheroes, driven by a core belief of love.
You are fabulous and deserve to be celebrated!
You are juggling careers, families, relationships and self-care on a daily basis.
You are caring for children, partners, friends, clients and ageing parents.
You are birthing and caring for new life, mothering the process of evolution, and championing your kids to spread their own wings to fly.
You are sensitive to the moods,...
Dear Ones, One month in to 2019, already a dark moon and partial solar eclipse, a full moon and lunar eclipse. Ouf! Many of us are charged and exhausted.
Some say that in 2018 we completed a 7 year cycle, and here we are at the dawning of a whole new cycle. Perhaps not quite knowing who we are becoming. Perhaps a little nervous, resistant or sad to let go of the old, even if it's no longer serving us, because we know it. We've created an intimate relationship for many years with the old versions of ourselves.
I find it helps me to create a ritual or ceremony - an intimate moment where I focus my intention to consciously cross this new threshold.
The Tibetan New Year starts on the 5 February, so if you feel like you've been paused in some transition chamber these last weeks and / or you just fancy starting again, this will be your chance to mark the new era opening with clear intention!
The 2nd February also...
"It takes courage to live in this world and it takes courage to love in this world."
A quote from Dan Millman
I agree. It takes a warrior spirit to keep choosing to open our hearts and dive into our vulnerability in order to be an expression of compassion for change.
My inner dialogue might go something like this:
I feel a surge of disappointment rising. Like a dark cloud passing in front of the sun, I am plunged into the darkness. I know this place. I don't like this place. Oh no! not again. I feel my rib-cage tightening and my heart closing as my thoughts get heavy and the whole world - out there - seems dull and disappointing through these darkened lenses. I feel bad so my mind thinks I am bad. I feel worthless and unloveable, so I judge and push everyone away. I resist. I fight. But I'm firmly stuck here in the mud and it feels ugly.
"My love. Be gentle with yourself," says my inner Warrior of Compassion. "How human of you to feel this....
Yep, you will see quite a few posts and programmes here for women. This one is only for you because you are important. At the core of all I do, the deepest longing in my heart, is that we come together, consciously, compassionately and support each other as human beings, beyond gender, to bring out the most potent, vibrant, healthy versions of ourselves.
This was text I included in my recent message to the women in the Living Sacred Womanhood project:
What about the Men ?
We acknowledge the real challenges and honour the greatness of men, our brothers. We, as women, come together to do our work to heal and cultivate that which is uniquely female, in order to be better prepared to initiate our brothers, bow at their feet, receive their gifts, meet heart to heart, and stand side by side, in equal measure.
We respect and are grateful to the men that do their own work together to heal and cultivate that which is...
