What if I told you power is something you surrender into rather than obtain?
That nothing and no one outside of you can grant you power. It is up to you to claim it.
Or that any attempt to have power over another stems from a place of disempowerment?
This inner, sensual, wise power has long been forbidden, hidden, and buried away.
Yet, it lies within your very own body waiting – I dare say begging – to be unlocked.
It will set you free.
Next week, during the online Activate your Feminine Power event, I will invite you into the cavern of your body so you can begin to taste wait awaits when you fully open the door.
As women, we have been shunned from the halls of power and cast aside as weak while being taught to deny the very essence of our being. By finding out why, you can begin to cast off the chains of invisibility and reclaim the three crucial components of feminine power: your body, voice & sexuality.
Below are three self-inquiry practices you can add to your New Year celebrations over the coming week to begin the process of opening up to your power. Choose the one that excites you most (or do all 3!). Set aside sacred time to delve within.
- What kind of relationship do you desire to have with your body? Don’t answer simply with your mind. Let your imagination roam. How do you talk with your body? How do you look at yourself in the mirror? What do you adorn yourself with? Write a letter to your body. Make an invitation. Devote to this new level of intimacy.
- What unspoken words are lodged within you? Perhaps they are filled with the repressed rage of self-denial, feelings of invisibility, or the grief of being ignored. Give them space. Let them be heard by you. Decide, once and for all, what you will NOT tolerate moving forward into 2022. Write it down. Make a list. To add an element of ritual, burn it and commit to honoring your right to be here – no matter what.
- Where are you lacking pleasure in your life? Is it in your relationship with food? Your partner? At work? With your body? Take ownership by creating pleasure rituals to bring back the life, the joy, the play. For example, if your food routine feels boring, light a candle every night before you eat. Set the table with beautiful dishes and a cloth napkin. Bless the food and the land from whence it came. The hands that pulled it from the earth. The energy it took to arrive on your plate. Close your eyes as you take the first delectable bit and taste every morsel. Let your senses fully engage. Treasure every sacred moment. Feel how incredible it is: You are ingesting life.
I would love to know how these rituals feel for you. What beautiful revelations do you have? Feel free to share in the comments below.
Following next week’s event to Activate your Feminine Power, those who desire to continue the transformation with weekly guided practices, inner journeys, and energetic activations can join an upcoming group program to Unleash your Sovereign Power. We begin in February 2022.
If you have been waiting for permission from someone else to take your rightful place – and be seen – it’s time to give yourself permission. Let the magic of 2022 guide you fully back to you.
