This is an invitation for a deeper reflection on how we function as sensitive, caring and independent women, and how I experience this personally.
I am amazed, on a daily basis, about the kindness, generosity, and power of the women I meet. It is a privilege and an honour to know you, and even more exciting to bring you together to feel the vibrant field that we co-create; the love, respect and support we share; and what happens when we realise we no longer need to go it alone.
I have always been a quite shy and introverted person. I have a deep emotional inner world, very quick to pick up on energy and emotions around me, and super sensitive in my heart. It takes a lot for me to go out in the world and to share myself. Yes, I do it, and I also need plenty of rest and time to process, care for my heart, and clear my energetic-emotional field.
I have always functioned in quite an independent and solitary way. In a positive sense I...
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.
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,...
It’s a little difficult to describe to the outside world exactly what happens when we go into the Temple of Sacred Womanhood. You see we take together a mystical journey deep into the dark creative depths of the womb.
It is by its very nature a unique journey into the unknown every single time. There is nothing we can do to prepare ourselves, and yet everything that has come before has prepared us exactly for this moment.
We experience something that is so far beyond what we could do alone, and what our limited minds could imagine and plan.
The perfect constellation of hearts appears as our medicine.
We are called to release our fearful grip of control, attachment and resistance, in the presence of such unconditional love, presence, acceptance and safety. Our fight is futile. We are met again and again with compassion.
With so much fierce love and gentleness, everything that is ready to be healed and integrated into wholeness emerges to be seen, heard and felt. Not even our...
To life and love, I surrender. I open my body to the infinite love-making dance of Shiva-Shakti. This is the purpose of creating time and space for embodiment practices!!!
Breath • Movement • Sound • Touch.
Nothing feels more important than this – being in my body and experiencing life flow through me as emotion, energy, sensation, sound, vibrations…. LOVE
My practice is simply to open the energy channels in my body and then surrender to LIFE force and how she wants to move and be expressed.
I make myself available to love, health, vitality and abundance.
Filling up on juicy life-force in Bali! My practice is to open my body to receive and be fully available for life’s abundance. It is not me who has to generate energy. My job is to let go, open up and expand the container for life to flow through me.
So many of us are concerned with our energy levels and the (predominantly western) conditions of burnout, chronic exhaustion and fatigue. So many people use sugar, caffeine, drugs, sport and doing more, to push through and get more out of their bodies!
Ever since I burned out in 2010 and experienced such a devastating sense of depletion, I have been on a mission to recuperate and better understand my body’s wisdom, energy and life-force. There is no one quick fix answer.
The answers come from truly listening to the wisdom of my body or rather I should say ‘bodies’. Recovery and maintaining wellness comes from being aware of my physical, emotional-energetic, psychological, intuitive and spiritual bodies.
I choose to experience this lifetime as a journey, as a sacred pilgrimage, as an adventure deeper into the unknown, into the wilderness, with no fixed destination in mind as this would only limit my journey to that which I already know.
I wish to experience the journey with open heart and open mind and open senses so as to be fully available to the wisdom revealing itself to me and the guidance emerging for each next step.
I choose to feel my vulnerability as this journey unfolds and to meet it all with courage and humility.
The more I let go of the ‘me’ and ‘mine’, the more I open to ‘we’ and ‘us’, the more I am touched and humbled by the wings of Grace embracing and guiding all that is part of this magnificent voyage.
May we all find our joyful travel mates and always see the hand reaching out in support.
May we take our turn to courageously and wholeheartedly lead the way.
May we always remember to look back and to wait patiently...
So I’ve been in my personal rest cave for a few days and today as I emerge out of my cave I can really feel the benefits. Ah, my heart is open to receive and share with joy, compassion and love. My mind is more clear and I can discern more easily what is my truth, what is good for me and what not. What is a “no” and what is a “hell yes!”. I can see more clearly the vibrant colours of Life.
I am filled with creativity, hope and optimism. I envision limitless potential. Self-worth, inner knowing and courage have taken the place of fear, doubt and anxiety. I feel soft in my body, with a deep sense of trust in life.
I realise that these moments of withdrawal, deep rest and letting go are so essential for me to stay aligned with my truth, in-tune with my body, and the rhythms of Nature that are affecting me.
Anyone else feeling this need for regular retreat? It seems to me to be the only way to navigate this fast-moving, over-stimulated, externally-focused...
Here we are in 2018! A new beginning invites curiosity, hope, inspiration, and dreaming….. and maybe some hidden anxiety ?
I notice that if I am not careful, I fall into old patterns of over-planning and planning to do too much.
How about you?
When I stop to notice, I realise that this over-planning and setting resolutions that require more doing is driven by my head and the fear of ‘lack’ or not being enough already.
It’s also the desire to have everything under control and fear of the unknown outside the edges of my comfort zone.
However, this creates an underlying, often unconscious, low vibration anxiety that affects my nervous system, my digestive system, my sleep, and my organs, especially my liver, and therefore I start to get muscle tension.
Isn’t it fascinating?!!
What once seemed like positive thinking was actually keeping me locked in old patriarchal ways.
These old ways also...
