Now, I’m not a big fan of the word “better”, but in reality we all have aspirations of where we’d like to be with something–and to us, that is “better” than where we are right now.
I’m always striving to be a more patient, understanding, peaceful and resilient mother. Even though I do my best, and have compassion that it’s not an easy task to guide another human being, I do try to improve. As I continuously learn to have compassion and love for myself, I can model this for my children and develop wickedly good “guide” skills.
So, the topic of sexuality and motherhood isn’t commonly strewn across popular magazines. I talk about it in my work as a women’s sexuality coach and previously as a Certified Nurse-Midwife, but in the mainstream, it’s pretty underground.
Often, we put things into priority lists as women, and especially as mothers. Sometimes my post it notes can pile up into a post-it extravaganza with the things I have to remember–permission slips, girl scout meetings, football practices, and shopping list essentials.
Where does our sexuality go on the priority list? Often to the gosh darn bottom! Why? Because we’re not seeing the value in it? Because we’re don’t think we deserve it? Because it’s selfish to think self pleasure and sex is a priority?
I’d like to turn that on its head. Right here. Right now.
We’ve separated our lives into “me doing my life” and “me being sexual.” It’s a highly charged subject, but it doesn’t need to be.
How about if we call sexual energy LIFE FORCE ENERGY?
Would you say you could use a little more life force energy? More vitality? More energy period to feel like a functioning, no, let’s go there—a THRIVING human being?
If you’re like most women, you’re probably answering YES.
I invite you to think on how your life might look differently if you had more of this life force energy pulsing through you on a daily basis.
Could you get more of your to-do list done?
Could you rock your work?
Could you be more patient, more understanding, and have the space to really be there for yourself, your partner, your kids?
I’m not promising it’s going to look peachy every minute of every day. Let’s be real right? It’s like a constant ebb and flow of emotions when you’re a mama–both from your kids themselves, within your family unit, and with yourself.
That’s the deal. It’s like a roller coaster of life we get to ride on every day. And it’s a gift.
But it doesn’t feel like a gift when we’re exhausted. “Over-gived.” Running on empty.
Luckily for us, 2 ancient traditions figured out how to cultivate, circulate, and generate more of this life force energy for us. Though thousands of years of observation, practice, and working with the energy.
Phew! And you thought you’d have to figure it out yourself.
Nope, we have the gift of this right here and ready for us to tap into. It is through the tapping in with our sexual energy that we generate this life force energy. It is one and the same.
I’ve been immersed in the study and self-practice of these practices for the past year and a half as a personal quest to feel more vital, turned on and to enjoy my life more fully.
At the turn of the year, 2018, I’ll be leading a group of women who would like to cultivate a deeper connection with their sexuality, bodies, and their sexual (life force) energy in an experiential program. This is for ALL women, not just mothers.
Nope, you can’t just watch some videos and binge watch it to bring it in. You’re going to have to dive in. But, here’s the thing, we do better when we have accountability. We are more successful at achieving our dreams when we have people right there doing it with us, having the same struggles, and cheering each other on.
It’s something that’s just brimming inside me to lead, and I will be sharing more details over the coming weeks.
I can’t wait for you to experience it with me!!
