When it comes to luxuries we all enjoy the experience of the finer things life has to offer. The joy of succeeding, generosity and feeling freedom naturally flow through you with passion. Yet, sometimes you feel a deep desire, a feeling that you just can’t place your attention on how to fulfill.  This desire is like an aching need, feeling as if nothing in the world can fulfill it. This pure, deep desire is the most intimate part of yourself, it’s found within you.  Being so full of yourself from the inside, by letting go of attachments, releasing criticism, judgment and  insecurities sweeps you off your feet.  It’s the presence of this space within, the world around you stands still, calm, serenity and peace wash over you. Fulfillment, a force so powerful bringing pleasure, joy, beauty and grace that can only be experienced from within.  Luxury so exotic and unique in self expression, passion and personal power.

The journey to fulfillment begins within you.

Here are some action steps towards greater fulfillment in your life:

Be true to yourself. Set healthy boundaries that are true to who you are, say no when you mean no, yes when you mean yes. Clean up and get rid of everything that no longer brings you joy or nourishes your life. Take up activities you have always wanted to do, allow yourself to feel so free in your self expression through art, cooking, gardening or music. Indulge your senses in beauty and delicacy through taste, smell, feel, sound and sight.

Focus on what you really want in your own intimate space.  Take time to slow yourself down within your mind and body. Your outer world needs your inner world to slow down, stop the chatter and feel the stillness. This means intimate personal space is a must.  Taking time daily for yourself by meditation, journaling, walking in nature or baths, will allow you to cultivate a relationship with your intimate self, your inner desires. Allow for clearing your head of the negative, self-sabotaging beliefs, the judgments and comparisons.  Listen to the voice within, feeling into gratitude, love and compassion.

Take up a personal practice of your values. What qualities do you value most? A few examples of values are~ integrity, community, truth, trust, success  Act within your life in accordance to the values most important to you. Everything you do is in alignment with your personal values. Begin your day clear on your values and with precision act through them in all of your interactions, relationships and transactions.

Own it. Let your wealth from within be the true riches. If everything in your world was gone tomorrow, know your inner riches never leave you.  Own your true wealth from within, through kindness, humility, authenticity, generosity, loving, sharing, giving and receiving, courageous, and reaching your limitless potential. Own the fullness of who you are.

The path to fulfillment is a journey, not a destination. It’s a consistent practice of the ebbs, flow and dance within life.  Illuminating the riches within.

Career Women and Her True Power ⭐

Career Women have been put to the test. Stepping up when needed, being present when others are in need.

Playing roles of wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, committee member, and the list goes on.

Add to that her own agenda to stay healthy and fit, feel and look sexy~ expressing her true identity and her own sense of self love.

Where does a woman go from here?

It becomes her negative self or critical self talk which has spiraled her down as opposed to up.

Women are designed to support each other through process. Through letting go, releasing and stepping into the new. This is the truth of a woman.

A woman’s True Power comes from this depth of her own identity, her self expression

As career women, recognize the way words, actions, feelings, behaviors and patterns ~ are either filling you up or draining you.

These are the 2 polarities. Masculine and Feminine

Negative self talk, critical self talk vs. self love and truth.

YOU. ARE. A. WOMAN.

AND…. you have the right to be; seen heard valued appreciated loved successful worthy. You have the right to feel beautiful to look sexy to be too big too much too full of yourself. This requires a shift in perspective and owning your true power.

Now how do you implement, flow and embrace this way of experiencing your True Power?

You Trust.

You Allow.

You Give and You Receive.

You create all of this from a space of seeing yourself, all of you, and you look, listen, feel and touch a place~ deep within your soul, Your Spirit.

The parts of you which are sensual, joyful, playful, seductive, receptive, open and free.

It doesn’t happen overnight and neither did your career. It takes practice, vulnerability and trust in yourself like no other. The rewards it pays off are greater than you could imagine.

More intimacy, deeper connection with your significant other/lover, an ability to let things go, to release in a way that allows you to feel, without any attachment, no blame, judgement, shame, accountability or responsibility.

Your True Power as a Career Woman asks you to take off all of the hats, to put on your Crown and Lead as the Woman you are.

This is the beginning of something wonderful. Let your Light Shine from the Inside Out.

How do you create lasting soul filling transformation and what benefits does it bring you?

What exactly is Transformation and a  Safe Space?

In this context a safe space is a place where a woman or a man is free to feel their feelings. As the old systems fall away of false power or misuse of power, control or compartmentalizing. Within this space, there is a force created to release judgments, shame, old identities and beliefs which had been stored in the body. Stored in the body to protect one’s self from the pain of being seen, hear and expressing one’s own truth.

These old wounds stemmed from the past, from family, culture, beliefs and an environment set in motion to conquer and divide. Now, to have the peace, freedom and happiness you desire and need to find and define your own success, health and happiness these feeling need an outlet a way to be expressed.

Transformation happens in this safe space. Just like The safe space of a cocoon for a caterpillar to transform into a butterfly,  a piece of coal acts as a safe space for a diamond to be transformed through pressure and the shell of an is the safe space the oyster provides a pearl to be formed with a parasite or sand.

Notice, there is pressure or a liquid state in order to transform, just as our emotions are represented by water. There is a release which occurs for transformation.

This safe space allows for you to shine as you release limiting beliefs, feelings and emotions which have held you in fear, anger, despair and pain, to name a few.

Now a safe space is an incubator. They’re often used in new business to protect the project before it’s released. In transformation, those of us who have grounded, found depth within ourselves, to allow our emotions to flow, stand firm and tall. We are bright and bold.

We wear our hearts on our sleeve.

What makes us unique as space holders is, we were to big, to bright, to passionate in something other than the system which had been created. We held steadfast to our hearts.

As healers, shamans, priestesses, oracles, alchemists, the space we hold allows for the expansion of energy~ e~motions, energy in motion.

You see, your energy when it’s contracted or contracting by nature is getting smaller, not bigger, not fuller, or more life. When your energy expands you are getting bigger, brighter, fuller and more life moves through you. Your life force, your personal power.

This is the space we hold. Why? Because as women, we are designed to let go, heal, restore, repair and bring to balance. We are designed to expand, flow and surrender~ let go and we are skilled at allowing others to feel and experience these shifts, we have embraced on our journey.

Within a safe space, you find emotional freedom.

Within a safe space you reclaim your personal power.

Within a safe space you find what you need, and allow your energy to rise up and meet it.

The difference with Spirituality from Traditional Education

Creating and implementing Spirituality is very much like going to school and then applying what you’ve learned out in the everyday world. Where some people view Spirituality and everyday living, career, work, family, fitness, finances as separate, they are not.

Learning to understand Spirituality takes a practice, discipline and a process. The difference with Spirituality from traditional education is, Spirituality has you uncover, reveal and bring to light aspects of you, aspects of life and living which had been hidden from you, missing, actually moved from your path of growth. It’s an uncovering of personal truths, that feel good, add value to your life and bring to you love, abundance which in turn builds and creates success, happiness and fulfillment. Just as the tree, which can bear fruits of its labor, so too can you, when understanding this natural order.

Places in your life where you feel drained, depleted, stuck, stagnant, repeating cycles and patterns, unstable, these are ways Spirituality provides an influence, greater awareness and the tools and skills to repair, restore and rebalance you, your life and the world you live in.

Spirituality has a foundation in the natural order of things, growth, expansion, harvest. A birth, death, rebirth cycle that is the ebbs and flows of life.

What I find throws people off the track with Spirituality is not having a foundation to understand the principles, practices and how to apply them without creating disruption in one’s own life.

It requires Endings that with grace flow into New Beginnings.

So how does one go about implementing Spirituality without disrupting their life, work and foundation, while choosing to grow, expand and create the changes they desire?

I believe the first thing is understanding your own foundation, your strengths. Usually strengths revolve around career/work, fitness/health, home/family, relationship/ connection in community, things in your life that create stability. For me, my strength has revolved around health and fitness. Health and fitness has always provided me a stable ground to build on, trust in myself and settle in.

Spirituality involves your relationship and connection to yourself in many ways, from your inner child, masculine & feminine to the environment you find yourself in and the people you’re around.

Holding and understanding your foundation, which is the root chakra through the heart chakra, can remove alot of stress in your life over the struggle and contemplation of what to do next.

As you learn the ebbs and flows, cycles and the ending into new beginnings, you can navigate your life with greater ease. You can enjoy your beloved with deeper and greater love, and you can show up more powerfully and fully as the man or woman you desire to be.

You see with Spirituality, there is no reward, or something to earn. There is no achievement or need to look good or get. With Spirituality you have alignment, the place where your true destiny, your path coincides with the choices, actions, decision and, Trust & Faith you hold.

This give you, the essence of your truth and desires a place, a space to show up. You see, it’s not rewards, recognition, or achievement you truly desire. What you desire is the Truth of you, your desires and your path of excellence and contribution to be expressed to come into your life, to come alive through you.

Spirituality in the presence of practice brings this to you. It’s grounded in your truth and nourished and nurtured by your thoughts actions and beliefs. It comes to light, through the dark and unknown with the ability to apply your skills and tools, your practices to the aspects of you which have been buried, hidden and out of alignment. The ones as I mentioned, you struggle with.

In this you find, happiness, health, healing, vitality, prosperity, joy, pleasure, and all of the aspects of you, you believed were missing. You believed you needed to find or get outside of yourself or didn’t know how to grow and tend to.

Spirituality when implemented into your everyday life offers you this gift. This gift of transformation, of the fruits of your labor, from pain to pleasure, from sadness/despair to joy, from poor to wealth. To see the world through the lens of growth.

Non Attachment

It’s very simple to speak and say, well detach from it- hold no attachment, it’s another thing to actually be able to apply this skill set.

Non-attachment at its foundation holds you in faith, strength, courage and trust.  It’s a magical place to stand. What occurs in order to be in non- attachment is a power from within and without so strong, there is nothing to stand in your way of the desired outcome.

Now, for many people the idea of detaching, brings up the exact issue that creates the attachment. So for example, fear of money- has people afraid of letting go, releasing, give of money. Fear of safety and security has people holding onto things, homes, people, money because of the feelings and emotions that are associated with the idea of losing safety and security.

These are the real issues, programming and patterns to clear- to find a sense of peace, clarity and freedom.

So how does one go about doing this?

First, identify what the fear is?  I mean look at the fear- not judge it, or label it, just look at what brings up fear- loss of what?  Now once you have identified the fear, be present with it. No action required. No emotions required.  Go about your living, and begin to notice each time a thought, feeling, emotion or experience comes up and triggers this fear. Good.  All you are set to do here is identify it and observe as it comes up.

Now that you know what brings up the fear, you see the trigger. Be patient.  What often is a thorn in the side with non- attachment is the fighting, the grip, the will, and determination to change something to get out of the pain, chaos, trauma.  This holds a charge and power.  Patience is the salve to igniting the trigger.  With patience you can defuse the charge.  Stay in patience. Center, breath, and find stillness.  These are a new experience.  This begin to settle the ground beneath you, the one that shakes everytime the trigger blows up.

What your next step here is to look for what you want.  What experiences feelings emotions and outcomes do you want.  No- attachment, just what are they.  Then ask youself why these triggers affect you.  Why at this point in your life are you being triggered by something that occurred when you were a child and what truth do they hold now? What traumas were there, what chaos erupted, what pain, saddness, vicitimization and lack or scarcity did you see or were exposed to.

Here is where you my love must show up in your power.  If you saw witnessed or experienced a trauma, you most likely did everything you could to protect yourself and overcome it.  Settle in to this with me.  Look around you.  Do you have the love, security, safety, money, food and relationship (whether with yourself or a partner) you desire.  Did you create the environment now as an adult you needed to get yourself out of the situation or circumstance that held you in pain, chaos and trauma?

I bet you did.

So now, the body, your emotions are still running the program.  They are being triggered by the patterns that show up in your life.  See you did a great job remove and growing from the experience physically, yet emotionally those wounds must be released- non- attachment, for you to truly be free.

You’re essentially still holding the fear pattern within through your thoughts actions and behaviors.  Now, non-attachment will ask of you to step into courage, to be the adult, the responsible adult you were always looking for to show up, to step in and take action, to protect you through creating a safe space.  This space gives your emotions, feelings and inner child, inner feminine a space to be safe.  In this safety you have the freedom to be, to express yourself, your truth- to feel to speak to be heard seen and validated.  You are given the space to open and let go, relax and find peace.  This continues to evolve into non-attachment.  That’s right, you are no longer attached to the story or the way others, adults in your life, showed up projecting and intimidating their issues on you.

You find a new sense of peace joy and happiness.  It is here you are free.

Your emotions hold the power to transform your life, are you ready.

Busting Open the Beliefs of Yoga. Connecting to your true Source of Personal Power

The depth of connection we have through our bodies is profound, penetrating through ever aspect of how we choose to live and in every thought, action, movement and feeling. 

inner compass 2

Let’s bust open some myths or outdated beliefs here, about the practice of yoga. Practice, is a series of actions, disciplines that create shifts, and gives you a formula for growth and development. Where yoga has an exceptional plan for focus and discipline in practice, it’s method of connecting one’s spirit to it’s own innate inner knowing, which includes opening channels that connect the ground below and the heavens above is archaic, built on a philosophy that held others in power and control.

There is another way. It is the way of the Priestess

From a time when women, with her beautiful ability to surrender, receive and allow had access to Divine Wisdom for the prosperity and abundance of all. Before the darkness. When the light was a representation of individuality, fertility, expansion, and all the joys and pleasure this connection brought to the people. There was no one leader. There was no one to follow. What transpired was the unique self expression of people through play, arts, creativity, music, sex, dance, food from the land and community connection.

Yoga, in it’s actions, closes off the channel. As a woman leader, one of the Priestess with a Divine Channel, my energy and ability to connect, like my sisters, is my greatest asset. This ability to connect my energy source to the earth below and the heaven above flows through the Divine Channel that opens with my pubic bone tilted and held forward, my coccyx bone tilted back and sits bones extended left to right. This Diamond shape, is the channel and connection that allows for a free flowing source energy to move through me. It is a place of personal power.

What this relationship creates within the body is extraordinary. It holds the lumbar spine, the lower back in a neutral position which is an arch. This arch, the design is for the connection of spiritual energy, rich, fertile, creative, and self expressive to move through this channel. It is the spirit in action. It is YOU. It is how you create and express your unique self in this world.

The current model and teachings of yoga, has not acknowledged nor chooses to recognize this essential action step in opening the channel which connects one’s spirit to their inner knowing.

Yoga, in it’s practice and philosophy teaches to tuck the tailbone- which is a submissive position. It creates a domination. It has someone’s own sense of personal safety and security look toward outward teaching. And looking in at the naval or solar plexus, has someone giving up their power to something or someone other than themselves.

Let’s put this in perspective with the true Natural order of the Divine, the animal Kingdom which thrives through a food chain model. A jaguar does not tuck it’s tailbone. She stands strong in her center, present. The curves of her svelte body the epitome of strength and beauty. When this majestic beauty decides it’s time to take action and look at the world around her, she sits looking out, observing with clarity on her next steps, which are divinely guided by her intuition. In situations where she finds herself in trouble, after the experience, she shakes herself off. She is clear on her power. And, no where does she give it away.

The exquisite nature of our senses are to experience the richness and fullness of life. Sights, sounds, feel, touch, smells all bring greater joy and evoke the feeling of pleasure. If you are not experiencing pleasure, the opposite is pain, or no feeling connection apathy. Neither one produces a positive Flow state. It’s easy to become stuck and stagnant here.

Yoga has a philosophy to turn off your senses, not be attached to the feelings. My feelings as a Divine Being are a gift from Heaven and my compass- the compass of my heart, spirit and passion, which drive and move me forward. And, isn’t that the same thing they teach about Law of Attraction, get into the feelings? My senses are a map, directing me in the direction to go. With each piece of pleasure I receive through sight, sound, touch, feel and smell, the experience of it, I find peace, joy and happiness. I open, I connect, I feel and I love. I FLOW. I receive, I open, I give and I celebrate the richness that moves through my life.

This is the path, the channel and source of the 2nd chakra flow~ sensuality, joy and pleasure. Your deepest connection to pleasure. Sure their are false pleasures to get you out of pain, and that is for you to reconcile. Money, sex, food all travel through the 2nd chakra. These 3 connect us to the physical and a sense of true safety and security. When we get into right relationships with our flow, our Selves, they flow freely. Opening your channel, connecting to your inner knowing, reclaims your personal power, and sense of identity that only you can have, it is your unique genius through your senses, feelings, thoughts and emotions, which comes from a high vibe state of pleasure and feeling, individual to you. Your blueprint, your identity.

Money, Food, Sex. These are the areas people and society have a hard time identifying themselves, your own personal power, your own blueprint, your own identity without a group, tribal or other people’s beliefs, ideas, judgments and philosophies. Taking a stand for your own personal philosophy. Just as I choose to do here. Without your own identity and personal power, what do you think happens? You give it away to others. You give it to others and you receive what they give, their ideas, beliefs and philosophies. The energy of the 2nd chakra is giving and receiving and creative or destructive. What do you think happens when the channel and flow is closed? Pain or apathy sets in. What do you think happens when you don’t have a sense of identity or feeling of personal power? You feel weak, vulnerable, unworthy. Do you think the Jaguar ever feels that way or gives her power away.

The depth of connection we have through our bodies is profound, penetrating through ever aspect of how we choose to live and in every thought, action, movement and feeling.

Make no mistake the practice of yoga has helped me, as a guide and a tool, a practice of focus and discipline, where like the jaguar I thrive in the environment. I took matters into my own hands. I consistently apply my own philosophy, inner wisdom, strength and personal power. I consistently trust my inner knowing, I choose to act from a place of power with my intimate intelligent inner wisdom as a Priestess.

This is the way we create change.

We allow, we give way to each person to connect into their own inner wisdom. We guide lead, model and teach how to keep this flow, this connection through the 2nd chakra of sensuality and the significant values of personal power exemplified by the jaguar.

This is they way of the Priestess
