How You Block Your Power

Turning to sadness or powerlessness instead of anger, when anger is the natural state Exercising an excessive amount or, on the contrary, never getting into your body at all Deprivation or control: imposing your will or mental rules on your eating or sexual habits ("why am I so hungry/eating so much" / "I need to...")...

Feminism Requires Opening

Have you seen this kind of woman? Brilliant and gorgeous and deep inside she has no idea about it. Flawless face and smile but look again and there is a sadness... She was taught she is more attractive when she stays elusive. Pretty but a run-away deer, a doe... Hunted. She became a feminist but... Continue Reading →

Men & Women: Healing the Divide

Dear masculine / men: We long to receive without "commerce, transaction, fairness or integrity." Every time you say or even think in the backest of your minds, I'll trade this for that, our vigilance (alertness) goes up.

Sensitive

I see very sensitive people around me not wanting to fully come to Earth or inhabit their bodies. "I have too much compassion, sensitivity, sadness, darkness, trauma, or -fill in the blank- for this Earth. It does not have the space for me." It's as if they have not made the decision that they want... Continue Reading →

Disruptive

Every woman is disruptive. Ideally, she's disruptive to what is not real, not helpful, outdated -- outside and inside of her. A woman who refuses to be disruptive is a woman who loses touch with her power. * * * The princess and the pea. She can feel a pea twenty mattresses underneath. Can't she... Continue Reading →
