I talked about surrendering to love at LOVEx Talks Sex and Relationships on Tuesday 😍

.

Standing up and talking vulnerably and openly infront of 50 people felt like the scariest thing I’ve done in a long time. I’ve been avoiding talking and it was about time.
.
I want to tell how this came about as it was a great lesson for me.
.
Some of you read my β€˜I want to surrender’, the post about lovemaking. Here it is if you haven’t :

3 weeks ago, the organizer of LOVEx Talks Scott, read it and reached out to me saying he loved the way i wrote it, geniune, open and beautiful and would love me to speak at the event.
.
So I said yes, I’d love to 😍
.
I gave a Goddess Circle workshop the day before so I was focusing on that up until then. When the day came, I was pretty nervous, my thoughts were going in loops and I was forgetting to eat.
.
Anyway, the day went by, arrived at the venue, went up there, feeling super nervous. I talked about letting go of the need to control, being vulnerable, surrender in relationships and also in lovemaking.
.
It’s easy to sit and watch speakers and judge them but it’s a whole another reality when you go up there yourself. It’s pretty surreal, I can’t even remember what I said. Later on, I found out as I was speaking, a guy outside on the street was playing Imagine by John Lennon. It made me teary, that song literally is the world I want to live in.
.
One of the many things that touched me afterwards was that 2 Turkish women came up to me saying, its inspiring to see someone from the same sexually repressed background putting herself out there sharing about these topics. They thanked me, I felt so grateful 😍 (I am Turkish, I grew up in Istanbul then moved to UK when I was 18.)
.
A part of me always believed I have to go to networking events, do webinars etc, do all these things to be visible. But actually, I just have to write.
.
Writing is my medicine, its how I realise, let go, forgive, feel, grieve, integrate, complete and move on. The bonus side of it is when I share, I find that so many people resonate with them. So when I just write and share, all these magical things come to me as a confirmation of what I’m doing is true. An opportunity to speak, to write in a magazine as a monthly columnist and to collaborate to run a women’s retreat ❀️ (Will share more on the last one soon πŸ˜‰)
.
It took me few days to digest, integrate what happened but I feel like now I adjusted to this new energy. Ready for the next level 😍
.
This showed me, once again, always do what’s true and the rest will take care of itself ✨
.
Sending you love πŸ’›
