This is for you women. You women who have it all, or want it all.

This is for you women. You women who have it all, or want it all.

Working In A fabulous career can be demanding and rewarding. Being in a marriage has it’s ups and downs. Raising children can be challenging and joyful.

Each of these areas of your life bring about polarity. The key is navigating and coordinating the polarity so it ebbs and flows, and dances. Dances in harmony with the joy & pleasure in your life.

That’s right Pleasure in your life. You stepped into a career ambitious, married the love of your life and created the miracle of life. You deserve pleasure.

The feeling and experience of pleasure. It’s not so fleeting moments or experiences found in a vacation, a workout a green juice or a girls night out. Those fall short of the true level of pleasure your heart is quenching for. Yes, your heart. The part of you that loves so big, there is no job, task, or other persons need to small your not willing to step in for.

Your pleasures matter, from the inside out. You see you can’t buy pleasure. It’s not found in the handbag, the car, or the shoes. It’s found through your own inner knowing, and commitments toward your hearts desires. The place between the polarity where you show up and settle in. Where you ask for support and trust in the process, allowing receiving as you surrender to your truth. The depth with you that desires, passion, intensity, focus, sensuality and this incredible freedom to express yourself all of you. Whether in the bedroom or the boardroom, this lioness, who is the master of her domain with beauty grace, elegance and class. Unapologetically perfect in her choice to live free while maintaining it all. A career, a great relationships and raising her children.

This is a new breed of women. Why? Because our generation has better access to our natural skills. We have learned how to stand firm, svelt and confident while detaching from an outcome. We know how to speak with the men while owning our own feminine spotlight, and yes, she; you, deserve the spotlight.

Today, we as women can identify having it all takes work and we’re willing to do it. Now with that checked off the list, pleasure is the piece where we bridge what we have done and accomplished with what is possible for us and, how we manage, strategize and move the pieces on our boards for more pleasure and joy.

A few delicious facts about pleasure;

1. It asks you to expand. You must grow, stretch and open into the next level. It comes through a version of success as birth, and the love factor is the same, the radiant self love you give to yourself. Pleasure is felt through self acceptance and surrender

2. Pleasure is a visceral experience through a series of intuitive guidance, inner knowing, and a feeling that takes your breath away at the delight. It asks you to slow down, turn in, ignite your inner desire, with focus and attention act, action from your place of power your creative sacral womb and your heart. It speaks from seduction and leaves a trace of intoxication.

3. Pleasure, when in your flow, will make your head spin so fast in sheer ecstasy, you’ll need assistance, help, support which can also be the feminine way of being, open, ready to receive, in intimacy with her partner through sex, even or especially when it feels or looks like you must take control.  It’s this support, help, assistance, which is surrender. Surrender to the pleasure , to being so practical and luxurious. Surrender to the polarity. Allow your lover to see this divine woman you are, the one you created who has it all. Allow him in, in a way that reveals every ounce of you to let go release and settle into the next level of you.

You are a Divine Feminine Woman, and you are here to Have it all and lead the next generation of young woman how it’s done.

Being a woman, Business Owner, Fitness Athlete and living the lifestyle I choose

Being a woman as a business owner, an athlete and taking care of my own health and well being is intriguing to some.  I find understanding my work as a business, being in business is no different than anyone else.  I hold a great deal of discipline focus and passion for my work, just like my workouts.  I found a way to maximize my workouts, eat smart and clean and have a business and work I love.

Why am I deciding to share this?

How many of you have a career you love?  How many of you are in a business that you find joy, success and pleasure? How many of you can go to the gym ready? Ready to get your workout in, focused, strong and committed.  How many of you go to the gym, eat clean AND get the results you are looking for?

I DO.  So in this case what makes me special?  I understand and have built success in my fitness and nutrition for over 20 years, because it’s the foundation I chose to build.  I love my workouts, because I know how to stimulate my mind and my body from a point of excitement and success.

I created this.  That’s right.  I created a business and career I love, a fitness, nutrition and body I love and I choose to be around people, community, friends and clients that appreciate and value the same things.

I created the communities by investing in myself.  Finding the right avenues to spend my time, energy and money.  From Fitness Centers, Coaching Programs, Lifestyle Events and relationships.

I’m opening up about this because it’s who I choose to be.  I choose to live life on my terms. I choose to excite myself with passion joy and pleasure. And, passion, joy and pleasure comes through the way I spend my time and energy.  And so does yours.

 

I maximize my joy, passion and pleasure.  With focus and discipline, I set aim on a target, that feels right for me.  Something that offers me growth and development, and inspires me.  You see, I know, my spirit loves to feel and be inspired- it fuels me and moves me to action.  Action being the catalyst for change growth and new.  You must be willing to take actions to have changes.  I mean you can not be doing the same thing and expect different results.  For me, since my work is creating changes, transformation, taking the lead, charging forward is my normal.  I throw myself into the fire of change.  I look around for my next step to leap.  I take action in alignment with my goals and I am not afraid to invest in myself. In fact, I love it.

If you want to know one of the secrets for my energy, my body, workouts and business, it’s change.  My desire to grow, to learn, to take actions that offer me opportunity to be fresh, inspired and in my joy.  This is my gift. My gift to cultivate my radiant, vibrant energy and generate success in life and with my clients.

Being an athlete is my heart and soul.  I love the ability to express myself through the stage and movement.  I just connect so profoundly to challenging myself body mind and spirit which comes through effortlessly as I train.  Effortlessly in the sense of I bring on the work as a way to practice excellence, consistent and dedication.

What are you ready to change?  What are you ready to have greater passion, joy, pleasure, commitment and discipline with?  These are all areas my work, my business teaches you and creates a plan that matches your lifestyle. It becomes an investment to move you where you want to be. And, it becomes up to you.  Just like me.

 

I set it up this way.  I set up having the career, business, body, and lifestyle I want to have.

 

Are you ready?

Commitment and the Power in Finding Your Passion

Commitment, the path home

What does commitment mean to you? Does it mean sticking to your goals and plans no matter what? As challenging and difficult as things may look, staying the course to follow through, even though you don’t know how it ends? Or does it mean, finding a different route a different path to get to your end goal?

The truth is who’s path are you following?

There comes a point in your life, when you understand what your commitments look like. I mean what holds the most meaning to you. The depth of the passion in your soul and the fire in your heart to blaze your way towards your desires. Desires, passion, fire- they are all the source needed, necessary, non-negotiable, in going after your desires. So where did or do you sell out?

Where do you stick to the plan others told you to take to get there?

Where do you stay safe in the commitments you made, which have little to do with the true desire, fire and passion of the commitments that hold meaning to you?

Commitments are an unspoken word, an agreement and arrangement with the Universe. It’s a channel a source and path that resources and currency flow through. If you are challenged by your time, energy or money- your commitments are out of alignment with your true desires, your truth and plan. The plan that is in the message of your heart. When you stop and look at what brings you passion, are you doing that? Are you creating relationships, work, successes that fuel and embrace your passion? No?

Then, your commitments are off target.

You see, we are all born with the gift to embrace, enjoy and live our passions. It’s up to you to uncover, expose and explore your passions, even if the ideas seem crazy and outside the box. Finding the truth of your commitments comes from a deep passionate love affair with how your resources are being spent, outgoing. If you followed the path laid out for you, if you succumbed to the idea that having these things would make you happy and commit to this lifestyle and you’re missing happiness and pleasure, depleting your joy, time, energy and money, then you are not on your truest path.

Take a sigh of relief. Now you know. Now you know your happiness had been committed to the ideas and version of life other people told you would give you something or make you happy.

Now, to re-establish your commitments on your own terms. This will look completely crazy and illogical. You’ll show up, embracing places, activities, people and things- activities that will cost you- money, people, relationships and most importantly- the old stuck and stagnant lifestyle you had been living. You will decide that your passion, your deepest desires on your own terms brings you greater freedom and joy than you could have ever imagined. And that is exactly what you have been seeking. Greater freedom and joy. A level of self expression that asks for nothing in return and is grounded and rooted in deep satisfaction in self.

Now re-routing, staying on your path, re-committing to your passion, is exactly what you are asked to do.

Are you up for it? Are you up for connecting so deeply and passionately with yourself that you step into the fears that leave you shaking at your knees and heart pounding?

I know you can do it. I’ve been there. It’s a conscious choice. It holds you powerful. It hold you in command of your life. It speaks to the Universe, Yes. Yes I am ready for the good in my life that I desire. The way I choose to live and embrace living.

It releases, removes and discords all the past programming that held you in the false happiness, ideas and beliefs others thrusted at you, manipulated you into, and pushed on you- even if it was in a loving kind way.

This is your time. You hold the power, your efforts are clear and solid. Now it’s up to you to follow your path, trust in your journey and step forward. There is a whole world waiting for you based on your own passion.

If you’re ready for your journey back home, to your true passion, connect with me at monica@priestessofpassion.com or click on Priestess of Passion to begin your Journey today

With love

Embraced by a larger love, moving from ambition to meaning

 

Bacons-stained-glass-window-4-largeMoving from ambition to meaning

There comes a point in your life, whether you stop and wonder,  look around you questioning what you have and what you’re doing, or just recognize and acknowledge your life is not everything you want. I’m talking about want from an inner perspective. You see all the things you’ve acquired, the degrees earned, titles held, the way you spend your time energy and money, really hold no meaning to you.  They’re not aligned with your true values. Once you reach this level of consciousness, a whole new world opens up to you, literally and figuratively.

This consciousness brings with it a new level of risk. A risk where you begin trusting in the unseen, you become the observer, peeling back the layers that once held power over you.  It requires humility, compassion and most importantly, self love. This level of risk is a vulnerability to the aspects of your life that you built which held meaning and power to you and for the life you built.

Moving to meaning.  In this new choice, meaning is everything that you value from your heart, body and mind.  It asks for you to listen to the message within your heart, feeling the truth in your body which sets you free.  The feeling of ease, simplicity, grace and flow. It asks your mind to let go, release and surrender to the opening.  It’s only through the crack in the darkness can the light enter.  Like stained glass windows and décor, the effects of the light, sunlight reflecting light can your true beauty shine.  This is your journey through the darkness into the light, where your sense of identity is broken- you transcend into the next phase of your growth. Your truth. Where things hold no meaning over you.

Where you claim your power. The power you hold within, to make conscious choices and decisions, to act from faith and belief in yourself, and to stand your ground for what you believe in.

Empowerment. The true gift in empowerment is you choose where you invest ( I choose not to use the word spend here), your time, energy and money.  When you are empowered the choices you make with your resources, time, energy and money, will add increase to your life and to those you touch.  The resources exchanged will be an asset on both sides, adding to growth.

Let me elaborate.  In ambition, you are looking to get a bigger home, a fancier car, a better body, more of the external with the spending of your resources to get something that you believe will make you have or feel a certain way.  Moving to meaning, you decide to invest your money in a home that makes you feel safe, secure and provides you a temple, a sanctuary to rest your head.  It may still be a big home, yet the meaning behind it is what it provides you.  In that safety and security you make better choices and decisions.  When in meaning, rather than complaining about how much the fitness program costs, the gym, private training, the fresh foods, the time it takes to workout, being to busy, not having any energy, you decide to look at the overall lifestyle of having health, you recognize the investment you are making towards your health which will pay generously as you grow and mature.  You are consciously investing in your health today, so later you’re not at the mercy of the Dr.s and medical system.  In ambition you are looking for doing it all, showing up for everyone.  You want to be seen as successful, only doing it all leaves you unfulfilled on the inside.  In meaning you leave that all behind.  You choose to say, “what makes me happy.  What can I do to be of service that gives to me that which I give to others?”  You decide to find peace, grounding and stability in trusting yourself, your gifts, your OWN INHERENT WORTH, which has nothing to do with a title, money or status.  In this you find Freedom.

You Thrive.

While in meaning you choose habits, patterns, places and experiences that nourish you.  You choose to leave the realm of excuses, problems and difficulties to stand in your place of power in the realm of solutions, gratitude, trust, compassion, and the present moment, a consciousness of richness found within that supersedes anything external.

It is here, You give meaning to your greatest gifts, your values, and power flow through you, from a place of love.

Sensuality, the most intimate part of yourself

While I believe many in society have lost touch with the inner most intimate part of themselves, I don’t believe it was intentional. I see it as a lack of tools, support, programs and a model for society to not pay attention to that aspect of themselves.

 

That in and of itself has caused a disconnect, a separation of self.  

What I have found is within this inner most intimate part of yourself is the richness, fullness, satisfaction and joy you have been looking for.  One of the most intimate parts of yourself is your sensuality. Sensuality gives you the pleasure to experience things from a very powerful place, touching the aspects of yourself that feel, see, hear, taste and touch. How would your world change if you understood how essential your sensuality is for quality of living?

So why would anyone choose to turn that aspect of themselves off? I don’t believe we have consciously made that choice, and I know, we have the power to turn it back on to fuel our lives, when we understand the power it holds for us.

When we come from a place of nourishing our sensuality, your senses, you release the power, money, time and lack have over you.  You step into a world where your experiences hold meaning, keeping your focus and bringing you pleasure, including your feelings and emotions let loose into more freedom, passion and ecstasy.

You see, if the focus has always been on the pain, the struggle, competition, or getting more, you close yourself off to finding the entryway, the pathway to pleasure.  Sure, things may get uncomfortable, even painful, yet that’s your cue to find your sensuality. Where have you been holding back, pretending, feeling guilty, or shame, or expecting things to be easy about wanting what you want, about being so open, receptive in your sensuality.

To ask for what you want and Know, what you want is important, validated and true.

Sensuality asks you nourish your senses through environment, relationship, foods, clothing, sex, movement, and self love. Self Love means putting yourself first.  For me, sensuality is a feeling that touches my spirit from head to toe, opening me up, caressing my skin, bathing my energy in sunlight and seducing me into actions that feel good.

Let go. Find freedom. Sensuality invites you to explore, to let go of expectations and to revel in the moment.

The first step to Self Love through Sensuality is stop the self inflicted pain.  Here are 5 Tools to begin delighting in your Sensuality:

  1. Find some quiet space, settle into yourself.  Notice your feelings, your emotions.  Be present to them, allow them to be.  Set out small pieces of different tastes, textures and colors of food.  As you take one small piece at a time, chew slowly, notice your feelings and emotions. Feel them. What nourishes feelings of pleasure?  What are you open to receiving? Can you appreciate feeling free? Can you let go, allowing joy, pleasure and ecstasy to embrace your whole body?
  2. Take time to write out your vision or goal.  Look at it. Feel it.  How do you need to feel to accomplish your goal? That require you to let go of putting other people first. To achieve your vision you must feel worthy. You must feel capable of accomplishment.  You must be true to yourself.  Honor your self worth.
  3. Start a fitness plan.  Find a fitness program that will encourage all of you, mind body spirit.  A fitness program which steadies your mind, fuels your spirit and opens your body, all connecting to your heart.  I choose yoga as my fitness program.  It grounds me into my present, while channeling my spirit. I can feel all of me, allowing my sensuality of movement to be an expression of me.
  4. Stop following the crowds.  Take time to find out what you want.  Spend time in nature, let go of having everything everyone else has. Find beauty in your uniqueness.
  5. Luxuriate your body. Find natural simple products, less is more.  Have a massage, indulge in a spa day, schedule a full day unplugged with your significant other. Find the beauty, joy and pleasure of you.

 Sensuality, the aspect of you that says,

YES I LOVE MYSELF

Change as an act of Power

Times of Change: The Inner World and the Outer World find Balance, Peace and Flow

We’ve asked for it.

Some of us have prepared for it in our habits, choices, actions and work.

We wanted change. We wanted change, where what we want, feel and believe in our hearts matches what we receive in our outer world.

Change can be subtle as we take the actions forward, with new plans, ideas, habits and feelings. And, believe it or not, often times these changes will be challenged by the old ways. “Are you sure you want to change?” “Are you completely committed to this new change?” Do you believe?, Do you believe in the new changes”?

 

It always looks good on paper, and it feels good when taking the actions. Yet when confronted with the old, do you have the courage to say Yes to the new. Do you have the courage, strength and wholeheartedness to allow the old ways showing up in the form of chaos, destruction, disruption, pain and despair to circle around you, praying on you to be vulnerable.

It is time for change and many of you have been doing your personal work to make it happen.  Aligning your values with your actions and words. Listening to your gut and intuition, trusting decisions, making good choices. You’ve placed what matters most, from the people you love, to your health first, the reason behind your happiness, your most valuable resources, as opposed to placing time, energy and money as the recipient of what matters most. You, my dear friends are willing to take self responsibility for your living and everything that holds value to you within the World. That is the power and passion of living life courageous and wholeheartedly.

 

Willing to let go of the status quo, bold and brave to say yes to accomplishing goals and dreams that ask you to continuously show up, stretch, learn, give, trust and believe.

Your actions, dedication, commitment set in motions by your emotions of joy, pleasure, happiness and success, because that is what you choose to believe.  With that contagious attitude you inspire others to find the light within, to rise up and be the change they wish to be.  For other to take a stand for hope, to liberate there soul to freedom, making new choices and decisions that reflect the values they hold near and dear to their hearts.

An Act of Power.  Yes, change is an act of Power, and one only you can do for yourself.

Now, more than ever, celebrate, appreciate the changes you’ve made, the people you’ve inspired, and where you are going. This is a time Great Power is available to us as a collective, one that is based on your heart & soul, one that will set the foundation for our children’s future.  There is no greater Force than this Energy~ building, setting new systems and structures, creating a new path for our children to live in a world that values the power of Love, where health, prosperity, fun, joy and happiness are their way of living.

How Powerful is it knowing your actions, intentions, values, choices and way of living; authentic and with self responsibility is building a new world right now.

Yes, you are the change. How grateful, my heart full,  to see so many of you in your dedication to that which you value most~ yourself, your family, your work, your community.

Blessings often come disguised as problems, chaos and trouble…..

Keep up the good work, You are moving in the right direction!

New Growth; Investment in your resources

 

Invest in Your Growth ~ Body Mind Spirit

Growth. The ability to support something in development, a natural process.  We all have the ability to grow and change, develop.  It’s a choice. It requires an investment in your resources, time, energy and money. You may say, “I want to lose weight”, or “I want to get a new job”, the truth is, if you are not choosing to invest your resources, into making it happen, you’re not showing up for yourself, your growth and development to the next stage of your life.

Money, by itself is energy, a tool.   It’s used to invest in goods and services and create change.  You could decide you don’t want to “spend” money on a weight loss program, a gym membership, learning new skills, or a headhunter.  The flip side to that is you really don’t want to “invest” in yourself to lose weight or get a new job.

The Truth is, The greatest Investment you can make, is in Yourself, Body, Mind, Spirit

When you decide, having the body you want, having a job you love is more important than “not spending money”, you remove your limitations, your obstacles and choose from a place of self worth, a place where your vision and your goal is set in motion, and you invest in moving forward.

A decision and action are necessary for you to achieve the results you want.  A decision and action demand a different course. Once again, that requires change, an openness, a willingness and a positive belief in yourself to achieve the goals you desire. You plant the seeds and nourish them with your time, energy and money.

So let’s be real here.  Fear, projects limits. Fear see’s things one way. Fear closes you off to investment in yourself. You can see fear around you in the ways you stop yourself, the way you negotiate and the way you perpetuate cycles of lack and limitation.

Investments on the other hand, asks you to stop, check in.  Investments asks you to find peace, clarity, trust and belief in your vision, yourself, and the present moment.  Sure, their will be people who don’t understand your vision, or your desires. They’ll talk negative about it, put you down, and have a way to squash your vision. And that, my love, has nothing to do with you.  That is their view point of the world, their own journey through self doubt and their own projected fear.

When you recognize, investing and putting money, time and energy towards those things you hold near and dear to you, things that matter and that which you desire, you change your perspective, you open the flow to everything that supports you, to have ~.  You must listen. Listen to that which is like in words, thoughts and actions. Free of judgments, free of shame, blame and guilt.  Free.  Free in feeling, free in energy and free in being.

Free to be exactly as is.

Find your voice.

Follow your joy, your passion.

Trust your vision.

Invest your resources, your gifts, your heart energy into those that will move you forward.  It may not be those who have what you want.  It will be those who understand you are empowered to your desires and goals, those who understand the power you have over your vision. And those who believe in the beauty of investing in body mind and spirit.

Growth happens when you give more power to yourself.   Your visions, while taking right actions for those visions to grow, and manifest. Investment time, money, energy ~ body, mind, spirit
