Feeling anxious? Check your pelvic floor tension

Feeling anxious? Check your pelvic floor tension

Pelvic floor tip: Are your pants too tight? Tight pants that don’t allow for relaxed belly breathing and the belly to just be, cause tension inside the pelvic floor muscles. Your pelvic floor muscles are the root and floor of your body and when the muscles disengage and go into fight or flight (I.e. Chronic tension or myofascial numbness) you feel more anxious, nervous, insecure… This leads to increased heart rate, increased adrenal stress hormone release, and increased heart rate. This leads to collapsed low back and heart, making the posture limp and weak. This leads to feeling out of control, ungrounded, not confident, needing to “get” from everyone else, to dominate and compare. Scarcity. Fear. If you’d like to shift your energetic patterns and begin to live from a different energy, a different way of being that invites love, acceptance, joy, harmony, and community, ease… Start with the root. Plain old Kegals won’t do it. In order to create harmony and balance in your pelvic ecosystem, you need to understand how the whole ecosystem works together. And what it responds to… More self beating and hatred adds to the tension. Feeling anxious? Check your pelvic floor tension. Now breath. And breath some more. And feel your root. Hear her voice. And let it be ok. And if you’re in Colorado, join us in October for a one day workshop; Feminine Rhythm Foundations, An Introduction into the Arts of Feminine Presence, Power, and Self...

Feminine Rhythm Toolbox: Re-Rhythm-ing, Fennel Bulb Pesto, and What is a Mala?

What a week! My personal theme has been Re-Rhythm-ing and  I have gifts for you that reflect this. 1) A peak into how to follow your own womb rhythm 2) A delicious recipe that will soothe your digestive system and excite your taste buds 3) I am Strong Mala + What is a Mala? 4) A look inside one of my journal pages on Re-Rhythm-ing. I’ve been posting more frequently and making videos inside our FB group as I’ve been inside my womb cave doing my practices, healing, resting, and gathering my energy. To join us there instructions are at the end of this blog. Womb Rhythms: The rhythm of your body, your womb, inside your pelvic space will speak to you in vibrations. She will tell you how she wants to live, how she wants to be. She will guide you into living and structuring your day based on her rhythms and cycles. What a beautiful terrifying thing to surrender to! Listen deeply sisters. Listen deeply. Its in the quiet conversations that you have with your self and your body and your surroundings that you hear whats really going on, and you can begin to slough off what is not truly you. It feels like shaking. Internal shaking. Let it shake. You get still. Breath. AHhhhhhhhhhh. Cry. Ahhhhhhhhhhh Laugh. Rage. Joy. And the world will spin around you until you feel your center. And YOU will not be inside the hampster wheel feeling taken from and obligated. Running. Running. Running. You will no longer be running. You will be blossoming in the dark quiet stillness of your own...
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...

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...
