I held a Goddess Circle yesterday at the Hay festival 🔥

It was beautiful to see women feeling safe allowing themselves to express whatever their bodies need to express.

.

It’s an interesting experience for me when I give workshop in different spaces without seeing the space. I worry a little about how the space is, if its warm, will the door be open or closed etc. Then I show up and find out its all good 😃 This time it was in a dome tent. I loved it though, it allows me to adjust to different situations on the spot and improvise a little ✨
.
Festival here is a mixture of loads of talks about meaning of life, meditation, research studies, circus, bands, food and a wellbeing area where Amanda and I are giving workshops and sessions.
.
My expectation was to have a sunny weekend laying on the grass. That happened for like 3 hours yesterday when this photo was taken and now we’re back to pouring rain and I’m back in my warmest sweatshirt walking around attached to my umbrella 😍
.
Next workshop I’ll be holding here will be tomorrow at 12pm, a breathwork journey for men and women. Come along if you’re around Hay-on-Wye. Message me if you’re interested 💙
.
Sending you loads of love 💛✨

💗 A REMINDER FOR WOMEN 💗

Today being the International Women’s Day, I wanted to write a reminder for women, for today and every day. I feel blessed and honoured to know so many beautiful, unique, powerful, raw, real and honest women in my life. I dedicate this to all women who inspire me daily by showing up and being themselves ✨

.

Your power as a woman is your courage. To open yourself up to limitless possibilities, to stand right infront of the unknown no matter how you feel and say, 'I'm ready, show me.'
.
Your power as a woman is your ability to feel. To feel someone so deeply that they don’t have to explain themselves, they feel heard and seen like they’ve never had before.
.
Your power as a woman is your vulnerability. To be vulnerable in a way that no one can stand infront of you holding their mask up to their face, they drop their stories in your presence by you just being you.
.
Your power as a woman is your intuition. To know the truth without needing any logical backup, to trust and follow that voice that says, ‘Yes, go for it!’.
.
Your power as a woman is your creativity. To imagine, to plant a seed, to nurture it and to allow it to blossom into a masterpiece. To realise that whatever you imagine, you can have it.
.
Your power as a woman is your sensuality and sexuality. To connect deeply with your body, to express your ecstasy, your pleasure freely and unapologetically.
.
Your power as a woman is your ‘no’. To know what feels true for you, and what doesn’t, to respect and honour your boundaries without any compromise and without any need to justify.
.
Your power as a woman is your voice. To speak your truth as it is, without conforming to societal norms, without a rundown version of it. To share your wisdom, your experience, your feelings, your life as you wish to express.
.
Your power as a woman is your sisterhood. To support and cheer women as if every woman is your sister. To know that it’s not a competition, that we move forward together, that we are in this together. To know that you are connected to all the women who came before you and will come after you.
.
Receive this. Take it and don’t let anyone tell you, ‘don’t rock the boat’, ‘keep quiet’, ‘you’re too emotional’ etc. Live your truth no matter how insane life gets sometimes, knowing that you living your truth is for you and it benefits everyone in the long run. Show others your truth rather than explaining it 😉
.
I celebrate you today and every day ❤️ Love you 💛
.
Wishing you a gorgeous evening 🌙

⚪️ ❤️ SOVEREIGNTY & LOVE ❤️ ⚪️

sovereignty & love.jpg

This has been the main theme in my life in the last 2 weeks, so time to write about it 🙏🏼

.

What does it mean, to be sovereign?
.
It's being whole and complete within yourself, being in your power and not needing something external to complete you or make you feel good. Its being your own lover, treating your body like it belongs to someone you love. Its not needing that person to love you because you feel that love towards yourself anyway.
.
When you're sovereign, you love someone for who they are, not because they fix the incompleteness in you or they fulfill how you want to be.
.
You don't need that person, but you want them. You want to connect and share intimacy with them just because of that, no other motives. Rather than saying 'I choose you because you complete me', its freedom to say 'I choose you because I love you'.
.
You're able to love all parts of them. Because it doesn't threaten you anymore. Its doesn't mean anything about you and it doesn't trigger your incompleteness anymore. Because now you're whole. This is the shift from dependancy to sovereignty, two complete people coming together ✨
.
Also there's a fine line between being sovereign and being super independant where you can create distance, push people away and go one man band. So just watch out for that 😃
.
There is a beautiful Osho card, 'The Creator', my favourite one.. It says, there are two types of creators in the world: one type of creator works with objects - a poet, a painter etc. The other type of creator works on himself. He doesn't work with objects, he works on his own being. He makes himself into a masterpiece.
.
It's about dropping the idea of becoming someone and surrendering to who you are, because you already are a masterpiece. Then you know yourself and you know you have everything you need..
.
When you feel like you need to get something from someone, follow these steps to come back to your sovereignty:
- Notice how you feel, name how you feel.
- Notice what it means about you if you don't get that thing.
- Notice what that need is telling you to do.
- Close your eyes, take in a deep breath and imagine you're empty in pure bliss and presence.
- Ask 'What's the truth?' and allow anything to come up.
.
The more you make this shift, the more it'll become an effortless habit where you just naturally in love and freedom..
.
Let me know your thoughts below ☺️💛

Loads of love! 💞
