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...
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 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...
