How to Listen to your Intuition (by rocking your hips!!!)

How to Listen to your Intuition (by rocking your hips!!!)

On listening to the soul-voice: Your ideas and creations are gestated inside of the creative center in your body. And you KNOW what energy is needed to nourish your ideas even if you can’t articulate with words what you need or your idea fully is. This is part of the creative process. There is a period where you don’t know, you know it’s essence, but to put words to it too early would put it inside a box too early, stifle it’s potential. One morning in client session, we both remembered how much our pelvic space gives us information in regards to the seeds we are nourishing. “I’m not sure if this person is someone I should collaborate with or not. What if I’m not ready? What if I can’t handle it? ” Those are the sounds of the fearful mental body. The soul voice, your wombspace, your vagina, sound a lot different; they don’t speak in frantic fear. “I don’t know what I should do” Said my client So I guided her to close her eyes, put her hands on her vagina, and start rocking her hips. “Ask your wombspace” I said. After a few minutes she opened her eyes and shared with me ” It feels like this person just saw a pretty flower and got excited and wants to play with it, just wants to dance, but doesn’t get the full essence of my project. It feels like she just wants to play and just saw a great idea and wants to just ride along. That’s not what my project is about. It’s not aligned. Her...
How to Tend to your Natural Creative Energy as a Woman

How to Tend to your Natural Creative Energy as a Woman

I want to talk to you about natural cycles, rhythms, and the creative capacity of your feminine energy. It’s something many women have been far removed from or have a narrow understanding of. Our natural rhythms for rest, creation, exertion, clearing, celebration and more are in essence an art form in the tending to and a journey of discovering your own wild nature.   This week I’ve been using my jade egg a LOT, my mentor Denise Byron reminded me that it’s a powerful tool for clearing energy in my Pelvic bowl and I’ve been re-reading Wild Feminine by Tami Lynn Kent, continuing my love affair with Women Who Run With the Wolves, beginning new explorations with new clients, and surrendering to the end of a particular love relationship, wondering what new growth is waiting for us. It’s been a big week 🙂   Through all of this, I’m really recognizing the importance of cycles and honoring our natural rhythm…   By now, I don’t think it’s arrogant of me to say that I know I’ve found my rhythm and my cycles and live in connected way with nature, my body, and the cosmos. It’s taken me a long time and a lot of deep inner work to surrender to that.   I wonder about you all…   How do you feel about cycles, your natural rhythms, your connection to your own energy and creative resource…   For example for me this month I have a lot of unknowns, lots of options for things I’d like to do, can do, but don’t have the funds for yet, am not...
Initiation: Re-Wilding in the Red Rock Canyon

Initiation: Re-Wilding in the Red Rock Canyon

“I’m here for initiation,” I said as the fire roared and 7 other women listen in the sacred space of the bright full moon, the stars, the red rock canyon and the truth. I spoke for several minutes and finally heard myself say, “I want my Sovereignty.” Those words trickled out of my mouth in a stutter because I was honestly afraid of what asking for that might mean in my life. But we were here for truth, and that was what came out of me. Among other words, I asked to learn to receive, that I was here to just receive. I didn’t know what that meant for me either. The best part about not knowing what I’m really asking for, is that I get to learn what I mean through the asking and then the life experience that comes to me. That’s how I like to live life, ask and receive. Experience and respond. Ingest, digest, integrate and learn.  What happened during my 4 days camping deep inside the belly of this Red Rock Canyon ( I’m fondly calling it the Vagina Temple, more than one cave in this canyon is literally like walking into a sacred yoni of the earth),  is a story worth telling and lessons worth sharing. I THOUGHT I was there to LEARN from the Canyon. But what I actually did was receive from the canyon. She didn’t “teach” me. She held me. She rocked me. She gave to me. She reminded me. She took me in and had her way.  I asked and she gave and I received. She infused my bones...
Your Worth isn’t even on the Table

Your Worth isn’t even on the Table

Try this on for size. Your WORTH isn’t up for questioning. Your WORTH isn’t even on the table. It’s non negotiable. It’s not even a THING! The last month or so I’ve personally been grappling with this nasty energy of unworthiness, self doubt, and not enoughness. It’s been more present than usual, more up in the air and showing up in all of my client conversations. In fact part of my own marketing, part of my own message has been about self value and worth and that our feminine essence helps us know our own inherent value. There is a subtle flaw here I want to transform. And that is this: I no longer want to use my feminine energy or essence as a bargaining tool for my own value as a human. I no longer want to use anything as a bargaining tool for my inherent worthiness or existence. How many actions do you take, words you speak, thoughts you think, deals and agreements you make, relationships you stay in because they are somehow a bargaining chip for your own value? NO MORE I SAY. When I really got this, I started to see everywhere that I was still attaching my value out in the world as something that could be questioned and how that was creating a vicious cycle of self imprisonment. Everything in my world was a question of my own value and that was painful and heavy. When you make your value something that’s not questionable, you can start to get down to the real deal about what’s really going on, what you really want,...
The evolved man: A brief look into what he won’t do, will do, and needs from you

The evolved man: A brief look into what he won’t do, will do, and needs from you

The evolved man: A brief look into what he won’t do, will do, and needs from you What he won’t do: Coddle you Agree with everything you do and say Make it safe and secure for you Make it comfortable for you Make it easy for you Let you hide behind him… for very long Entertain the ways you try to consciously or unconsciously manipulate him Play into unconscious power struggles At some point, you realize that he is SAFE because he is real and because of all that he won’t do. What he has been known to do: Stay up all night with you helping you unravel your shame, repressed anger and guilt Encourage you to get angry at him and tell him exactly how you feel Call you on your bullshit and your stories and let you work it out on your own Give you presence and attention that is like water to your rose buds Want you to blossom and succeed more than he wants that for himself Provide you with a wide open space of freedom to roam the world in ( which if you don’t want to be free inside somewhere is really hard to receive) Commit himself to helping you grow into your full potential Help you go very deep into your core wounds so that you can clear them out Keep sex very sacred and whole with you Be Generally more private and contained with his sexuality and choice of sexual partners (I said private not prude) At some point, you realize that he is much more than you ever gave him...
How Candace Came out of hiding

How Candace Came out of hiding

It’s often difficult to explain what I do and how I do it to people. To be honest, I still stumble with my words a lot. The best way I know how to share about what I do and the results that come from it is to share it from the words of the women that I work with. Enter: Candace Photographer of Families and Women Entrepreneurs www.candacesmithphotography.com I have watched and witnessed Candace pull herself out of the trenches post breakup, through home transition, and career transition and I have been with her through it all. It was almost like a hurricane hit her life and then she hired me, and we’ve been cleaning up the debris and guiding her into what she really wants to create in her life, helping her integrate, assimilate, feel supported, and have consistency in her life as she re-builds foundations and grows into her womanhood. You might see yourself in Candace even if you’re in a different place in life. Listen to her story as her and I share what it’s like working together and how it’s helped her navigate her life and lighten her load. Candace Says: On Lauren as a teacher and mentor “Lauren is a game changer. From the first session, I noticed things about myself that I didn’t pay attention to before and that changed how I see myself and pretty much everyone and everything else in my life. She see’s through my bullshit and I’ve been able to breakthrough patterns in my life that have been sabotaging me for years. I need consistency and love knowing that...
How to Harness your Feminine Presence without Intimidating Others

How to Harness your Feminine Presence without Intimidating Others

It’s almost 2015 and that means you’re thinking about your plans for the year and how you want to set the tone for it all. As you’re doing this, I want to chime in with a feminine presence tool that will help you make sure your 2015 plans are not wilted, limp, and flacid, coming from a stance that is a version of you that is so 2014, two thousand and late…. If you want your 2015 goals with soul and plans for your life and biz to start FEELING more in alignment with who you want to become, you’ve got to bring in the INNER TIGER. We want you to be soft, flowing, and surrendered, which is different than limp and apatheitc. We want the tension and the meltyness in the middle. This is wholeness: masculine AND feminine together. The title of this video is actually “How to harness your feminine presence without intimidating others” and comes from a question that was from Kendall and the survey I sent out recently. I picked this question first because I have personally struggled with this question my whole life, feeling like people are always telling me I intimidated them upon first meeting AND because many women also feel that they hold back their own beauty, power, and joy because it might be *too much* for others. I’ve been reading a book lately called “Straight Line Leadership” and one of the big concepts is on what STANCE you are taking in life and that your stance (i.e. the stance of a CEO of a company vs an employee, the stance of...

Ressurection: Unearthing a childhood dream

When I stopped thinking about my legacy and started appreciating each little moment. When I stopped thinking about what I want to be known for in my work and started asking myself how I WANT TO KNOW MYSELF When I stopped thinking I needed to be a spiritual guru, teacher, channel, business chick, cool entrepreneur… When I realized that it’s about the experience of life that I’d LOVE to have this time around. When I realized that running women’s circles and talking about the feminine isn’t the ultimate goal of my life. When I grieved and grieved the loss of something so existential from my childhood and the choices I have made, the way I’ve circled around my own joy. Avoiding it. When I stopped feeling responsible for healing the burdens of my lineage. When I started to put my time and energy into something that brings me joy. When I started to make movement my priority. Training my body a priority. Caring for my body so I can get in my 10,000 hours. When I heard the universe asking me “WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE? you get to decide. That is what this year is about for you.” Inside I hear myself screaming. I’m a dancer. I’m a fucking dancer. I choose...
How to Survive your Family During the Holidays ( And stay centered and joyful instead)

How to Survive your Family During the Holidays ( And stay centered and joyful instead)

Ok lets face it. Family is a challenge. As amazing as it is, it’s our greatest teacher. And sometimes our teachers don’t feel so great. And every time I spend time with my family, I brace myself a little. I learn every time how to be more myself, let myself go, and how to let go of the stories I play out so I can just relax, have fun, and access gratitude and acceptance. On top of that, the holiday time and the entrance of winter time in the northern hemisphere, brings up lots of emotions and old wounds for people along with all its nostalgia, cheer, tradition and joy. I wish that I could say I’ve perfected my family relationships or that I don’t regress back to a cocktail of 8 years old mixed with repressed teenage angst…. But alas, I still do and this video was made POST 20 hours in the car with my parents, aunt and uncle, and after arriving to my other aunts home in southern California where the other 10 members of the clan were already settled for an epic week of Thanksgiving. What I’m already seeing, is just how much I’m willing to slide right back into the shadows and sulk instead od stnd for my own needs ad desires. And so I’m using this week as a place to practice asking for what I want without apologizing, making myself smaller, or making my needs less important to avoid conflict. So enjoy this diddy on the things I do to help myself be in the moment and stay connected. As always, it’s...
What you DON’T need when you are stuck (dancing involved)

What you DON’T need when you are stuck (dancing involved)

There is an epidemic happening: It’s called Information Overload.  What I hear often from women I work with is “I feel like I have so much information, TOO much information, so much so that I don’t even know what to do with it all”. They say to me “I just feel frustrated, I can see all my patterns, what I need to change or do, but I just can’t do it, and I am stuck.” At this point, most of us (including me) get caught in a cycle of seeking outside for answers. The next book, the next teacher, the next workshop, the next thing that will help you move forward. But here’s the thing: Most often at this place in your cycle, what’s happening is not that you need more information, it’s that you are too full and havn’t digested anything. You are avoiding feeling something, avoiding your body, avoiding being present. And nothing, NOTHING, else will help you move forward until you understand how to come back home, get connected, and realize that the clarity you really want comes after you’ve returned to yourself, not after you buy that next course. This video is about how to gain your own insight by going within BEFORE you go outside to take action. Because nothing you do outside is ever gonna feel good if you don’t feel connected to yourself. It’s also a video that was created on two levels. This weekend I happened to record myself freestyle dancing in my new house and when I started to edit this particular words of wisdom, I though to myself, I...
What to do when you don’t know what to say…

What to do when you don’t know what to say…

On Monday I walked into a networking event, and a woman met my eyes and said hello, and I just started balling my eyes out. I was feeling tons of pressure and emotions.  I was having one of those “why are we here, is this what life is about, what is the point of all this” moments.   I immediately questioned myself about why the F I was even at the meeting if I was feeling so inadequate at the time. Having just moved, just finished my Feminine Presence class , not having any clear offerings at the moment and exploring working with several different groups of people (Personal Branding, Message Clarity and emotional resilience/confidence building with women, mentoring teen girls, and helping men understand how their energy can support powerful women) ,  I just didn’t feel  like I could do that damned 30 second commercial about who I am, what I do and who I help.   So when it was my turn, I stood up, put my hand on my lower belly, took a breath, turned my heart light on and just started speaking loud and clear. “The most powerful part of you is the most vulnerable…” and from there some other words came out of my mouth, I don’t remember what they were.   I had no idea what I would say, but what I did know was this: What I lacked in clarity of words, I made up for in my own trusting that whatever I said would guide me.   I’ve been jamming lately with clients about personal branding and doing work on my...
Throw Away your Feminine Archetypes….and Be Yourself.

Throw Away your Feminine Archetypes….and Be Yourself.

What would you say if I asked you to throw out all your archetypes, goddesses, and inspirational females you try to model yourself after? I started my first Art of Feminine Presence class in boulder this week and the theme of the series is DEFINE YOUR OWN FEMININE ARCHETYPE. I encouraged my ladies to throw away goddesses, inspirational leaders, and other feminine inspirations OUT THERE for the duration of our series to give themselves the space to feel and receive their own core essence. Kinda radical I suppose, but you know me. Do archetypes help us embody aspects of ourselves, yes. They can. AND they can also leave those aspects right were we found them, in the archetypes never to be integrated. Here’s my experience, not theory.  At first, the archetypes and inspirations are a muse, an inspiration. They are the INITIATION, the way shower. But when you want to bring it into YOUR BODY, YOUR VOICE,  YOUR MOVEMENT, when you’re looking to females OUT THERE for this, the best you’re gonna get is still feeling like there is something missing inside of you, because what you want is perpetually OUT THERE. Until you go within and discover the visceral , tangible, sense and feeling of your own essence, and then begin the process of bringing the inside out so you can have your own impact and presence reflected back to you, you will always feel like you don’t know your own value. This last year has been pivotal for me because I used it to digest what I had learned, and it was not always easy or painless....
The Decent: My Sensual Meditation Practice

The Decent: My Sensual Meditation Practice

I am standing. It is 7am. I ground my feet, imagine roots from my feet into the floor. I stick my toungue out my mouth and breath out swiftly like a dog in heat and feel my pelvic floor relex. I relax my heart, soften my heart and shoulders, my legs are like tree trunks. I begin to imagine a glowing light in the center of my pelvis, 2 or 3 inches below my belly button, physically inside my pelvis. I breath this light; expansion and contraction, expansion and contraction. I imagine a warm dollop of honey at the base of my pelvis. Begin. Deep and moving music begins to play. I start to rock my hips forward and backward ever so slowly. My attention flows from my head, swirling and buzzing, down into the rocking of my hips. I feel the resistance as my forehead clenches and my eyes squint, it’s as if my third eye has it’s own eyelid and it wants to stay shut. I continue rocking my pelvis forward and backward, slowly, fluidly, pleasurably, as though I’m standing in a jar of honey. I soften my heart, I soften my jaw. The tension from the evenings sleep and the pain in jaw begin to melt away. I feel my energy in my throat and heart, my pelvis beckons my attention down down down. 2 Minutes: A thought pops into my mind and I’m back in the buzzing between my eyes. Ok Womb, I’m coming back down, I hear you. I think. God I’m terrible at getting out of my head, damn this gemini mind…. inner...
Supporting a Culture of Evolving Men: The Emerging Feminine Responsibility

Supporting a Culture of Evolving Men: The Emerging Feminine Responsibility

We want to support a culture of evolving men who don’t only see problems and try to fix them. We want to support a culture of evolving men who can see what IS right now, see the perfection in all the working parts good and “bad”, not throw a tantrum about it, and see their way through the issues of the world to the other side, to the solution, to the solution for the greater good of humanity. We support men who are on purpose and who will stay on purpose, prioritize their purpose even over our own agendas, and willingly give their gifts to the world. We take care in the men around us and use our intuition and gifts to help them become the best versions of themselves. We give what we can to help them grow and learn to be better stewards of our families, communities, and the planet. We face the wounds we have with our fathers and understand how we have emasculated ourselves as well as the men around us. We face our anger and rage and we learn to move into conflict and tension with courage, so that we may come out in forgiveness and be transformed. We have to get to a place where we can be responsible for our choices and our emotions so that we can stop presenting men with the problems of our own doing, asking them to hold space for us where we are unwilling to hold space for them, and asking them to stay small so that we can feel safe and powerful. We can and will...
Two keys of Feminine Presence: The Womb-Heart Connection

Two keys of Feminine Presence: The Womb-Heart Connection

After a year off of teaching the Art of Feminine Presence, I’ve been feeling the call to teach again very very strongly. I spent 4.5 years teaching this work and through it all I cultivated a very strong practice in connecting to my feminine energy, my sexuality, and my pelvic bowl. Over the weekend a friend of mine had a ‘come to jesus’ talk with me about my own wisdom and as he guided me through my body, I had a revelation about my womb center, trusting myself, and my heart. I realized that I had been ignoring my womb in favor of my heart and it was causing my heart to go into a sort of ‘cardiac arrest’; my heart felt alone and exhausted.  What I realized is that the womb and heart have a symbiotic relationship and I’ve been trying for so long to figure out how to connect the two, but have simply been over-functioning in one or the other. And this weekend something clicked: The womb is the root and the heart is the flower, and when the womb is “turned on” the heart can blossom freely without feeling exhausted. And this has more implications than I’m going to speak about in this ONE post, but know that when your womb and heart are out of whack and not speaking to each other, it effects everything in your life; the choices you make, the people you attract, and the things that come to you. Now as I say this, I must tell you that I have heard this before. Rachael Jayne who created The Art...
