  • The Cervix Speaks

    The cervix is the mouth of the womb, the gateway to our precious feminine chamber; the only organ in a human body that can nourish the spark of life and grow it into an entire new being. The cervix sits neatly inside your beautiful vulva; the bridge between your internal and external reality. The fact you can actually touch your womb is profound! Think about it, you can’t touch your heart or lungs from the outside, but you can physically touch your womb – what an honor.  There is little in life more intimate than touching a cervix. This gateway has many roles in the body. It has the important job of keeping nasty…

  • What Does it Mean to be Sexy?

    Recently a beautiful colleague of mine, Jacqueline Ivory, wrote this post: “Please, ‘sir’, don’t get me wrong, just because I dance near you in ecstatic dance and connect with your energy, it does not mean I want you, just because I dance wild and free and sensual, it does not mean I am ‘up for it’, just because I smile at you it does not mean I fancy you, just because I am open with my energy around you and allow it to flow freely, it does not mean I am open to sex with you. I am simply a being in a woman’s body who desires to be free…

  • Reframing Endometriosis

    For most women menstruation is a time of heightened sensitivity, for women with endometriosis it can be disabling. With approximately 176 million women and girls suffering from endometriosis worldwide, it can now be seen as a global epidemic. What is Endometriosis? During normal menstruation the endometrial tissue (lining of the womb), which has been building up throughout the month, becomes swollen then breaks down and is eliminated as long as pregnancy has not occurred. Now imagine what it would be like if this endometrial tissue grew in places it shouldn’t? In women with endometriosis this tissue can be found between the uterine walls, in the fallopian tubes, on the outside…

  • Perfectly Imperfect – One of ‘those’ PMS moments…

    What if there are days when you wake up raging, when your rational mind wants to take a hike and your brain feels full of molten lava? What if you feel like the most unfeminine, ungraceful mess, dangerous to human contact in that moment? What if we as a women want to just be by ourselves with nature and feel free, or even just stay at home and feel free to simply stay home and listen to music. And what if that moment is just a moment when life, the planets, or a garden gnome are stirring up old stories in your body and your only job is to let…

  • Are You Having Vitality Orgasms?

    Most of us grew up in a society that values hard work and frowns upon play. Sex is so often just a moment of relief before getting on with the ‘should’s’ of life. But what if there was more to it?? What if deep profound earth moving orgasm was the golden elixir for our hormones, mental vitality and longevity? If you love live sex shows on cam then check out this web site where they have ratings for all of the top live nude cams so it’s just brilliant. The Vital Orgasm “Orgasm is vital and we have a huge lack of vitality in our culture,” says Dr Sara Gottfried, author…

  • The Delicious Dyanamics of the Jade Egg Practice

    The Taoist story of the jade egg practice came my way many years ago, but nothing about it called me. It https://buycbdproducts.com complicated and heady. I just didn’t have a sense that this practice was really for me. That was until I had a very interesting conversation with Juliet Terblanche of Yoni Eggs South Africa. Jade eggs were first used by the women of the royal courts in China 5,000 years ago. Even by the Empress herself. In those days women didn’t pass their knowledge on through the written word, they passed it on verbally, which means we don’t really know what techniques these ladies were using. I decided to dive into my own jade egg practice…

  • Does She Crave Sensuality?

    Women are deeply complex creatures to say the least. They can straddle and travel a multiplicity of streams, sometimes too many. Today, either by choice or by necessity, women are easily losing themselves in the multitiered vigilance of life. To reignite the feminine fire takes a moment of healthy surrender into her sensuality, either through creative expression, jade egg practice or making love. To intimately connect with your beloved woman starts with an invitation from her to pass through her gateways of sensuality. Neither need, nor will, nor demand can bulldoze her gates open. They succumb, layer by layer when she feels completely enveloped by your honest heart. When your are present, when you…

  • How to Nourish Your Hormone Harmony

    Today more and more women are suffering from symptoms of unhappy hormones. Whether it’s polycystic ovarian syndrome, infertility, or hot flushes, these problems all stem from the same culmination of stressors. In fact problems with adrenal stress, thyroid disorders, reproductive health and mental emotional health, all go hand in hand. There is no separation, the group of endocrine glands and neurotransmitters all function together in one beautiful orchestra. When we learn to listen to our internal signals, we hear the call of our hormones.

  • Finding the Energy to Heal

    Health challenges like adrenal fatigue, autoimmune diseases and cancer are increasing by the day. The messages screaming from our bodies are loud and clear. It’s time to lift the veil of naivety and take a good hard look at the cause and effect of life as we know it. For some, the fall happens so fast, it is hard to know what happened. Hitting the bottom of the barrel is excruciating and freeing in the same moment. It is a dichotomy, but the relief floods in when one realizes the only way left to go is up. This is the moment when you need to look beyond your https://buycbdproducts.com programming,…

  • Self-Obsession & Self-Nurturing: A Fine Line

    For many generations western principles have encouraged us to either strive for power and recognition, or to give of ourselves until we are depleted. Yet these concepts are clearly not working for us. Today life is no longer primitive, we are surrounded by high-tech gadgets and specialized health and beauty treatments. We no longer have to rely on our neighbors, we can simply pay for any services needed. We appear to be completely self reliant for the first time in history. Society has become so efficient that if one seeks help for depression, the doctor will hand you a little box of white pills to take your problems away. The same as a gynecologist will do…

  • Loving Your Body – Story and All

    We are born with one body; one beautiful, intelligent, dynamic, body that allows us to experience all the joyful sensations of this life. The body is more resilient than you could ever imagine. It can do processes that show miracles exist. The body is like a filing cabinet, it holds on to the story of our life, including all the unprocessed fear, guilt, shame, anger and resentment. We judge our body when: We have lost our inspiration for life. We have been judged by our loved ones. We feel a sense of shame. We feel we are not doing things the way they ‘should’ be.  We believe we should look like someone…

  • Trust, Intuition and the Gap…

    What is trust?  It is a sense of feeling safe, of leaning into something. So what happens when we trust something that we do not really understand, that we cannot measure and rationalize with our logical minds? This sense of deep trust holds the real magic in life.  It is the place that brings unexpected, joyful gifts, it is the place where we have access to a wisdom far and beyond any book, it is the place where our heart and soul reside. To truly trust, is freedom. So how do we do this? … Start with something simple.  How about trusting in your body? It is consistently with you throughout your life…

  • Are we Working from our Hearts?

    We are amazingly intelligent and adaptable beings. We are capable of learning any skill you can imagine. Our only real challenge is to release the hold of fear. We no longer have to fight for survival. We no longer have to grasp our way through life. We know how to grow food, collect natural water and harness energy from the sun, the wind and water. We can even build eco-friendly homes. So why are we still fearing survival? The only thing keeping us in survival is us. We are imprisoning ourselves in debt or hand to mouth living. Yet there are so many possibilities, so many ways to live free of survival. Allow your curiosity to make its way to…
