Learning to love oneself can be challenging for those of us who have been taught the opposite. I thought self-care was selfish. My self-talk to describe myself was cynical, mean, and sarcastic. I thought that was normal. No one told me that I could be strong and how to fight my own demons. So I became excellent at blaming and ultimately became a victim of all I was taught was done wrong to me.
Know this, my sisters: self-love--the ultimate relationship you have with yourself--is pivotal. It is possible to embody self-love.
As we approach the end of another year, I feel like it’s a perfect opportunity to look ahead. I am motivated by the emergence of the #MeToo movement. I am energized by the growing awareness among women and men regarding the abuses that have been perpetrated on females around the world. I feel like I need to step up and back at the same time and consider the misguided and misogynistic ideas about how women should look and be in the world and consider “what if...”
For the last two weeks, the internet has been flooded with #MeToo. Our voices are rising with stories of abuse, trauma, and persistent inequality. The stories aren’t new. They aren’t surprising.
Sisters, we are embarking on a revolution. This #MeToo movement offers us an enormous opportunity for change. Countless conversations, speeches, demonstrations, and other efforts are underway. And this is just the beginning. Let us harken in a turning of the tide.
Some of us may have looked for approval and love in the wrong places, with the wrong people. Others may have soothed our insecurities with food, drugs, or alcohol. We acquired a pattern of either putting ourselves second and doing what was asked of us – or feeling guilty that we couldn’t – followed up with a profuse apology.
Can you think of the times you’ve said sorry and take the blame for, just being you?
Sisters, do you find yourself worrying over every detail? Does the thought of not knowing every nitty-gritty point cause your anxiety to grow? What if I told you there was a way you could move forward and stop worrying…
I spoke with internationally known worry management expert, Denise Marek. Author of CALM – A Proven Four Step Process Designed Specifically for Women Who Worry. In her book and in her coaching, Denise reveals a proven four-step process designed specifically for women who worry.
Ever feel you’re not worthy of something? Not worthy of good luck, a healthy body, a good job, a joyful life… even love!
Worthiness is an internal feeling. It’s the confident knowledge of how you appear to yourself and others. It is of vital importance in any endeavor because your presence, your opinion and the way you present yourself matters greatly in all you do.
This month we’re celebrating Mother’s Day. This brings to mind how female role models in our lives - our mothers, aunts, grandmothers, and other females - from early childhood on have helped (or hurt as sometimes happens) shape and influence our body image. We, as Divine Moms and role models for young girls, can bring to an end to this idea of “looking perfect.”
Have you ever worried about your biological clock running out of time? Have you been told that women should give up on the dream of having children if they have not achieved it by the age of 35?
Join us on Divine Renewal Radio where my guest will be holistic fertility expert Claudia Spahr. We’ll be talking about fertility in women over 40, and how you can take greater control of your fertility through connecting to your Divine Feminine with natural techniques like yoga, wellness, retreats, mindset shifts, spiritual reconnection and holding space for yourself.
Truth: Our bodies are sacred temples. Self-compassion teaches us to treat ourselves with tender love and a deeper understanding of our true hungers. To be truly “turned on” is to live a life you love in a body you love!
Neglect Her, and she’ll take you out... with shame, stress, addictions... Work with Her, and you will discover the power you were born to embody!
How do we do it? Join me on Divine Renewal Radio, when I’ll be talking with Maria Therase Cucinotta, CEO and Founder of Femme International, about practical methods of self care and reclaiming your feminine power.
Our shadow sides are here to help us. Only by making friends with our darkness do we reclaim the wisdom and power they have to share. Getting to know your darkness isn’t about beating yourself up, it’s about opening the space so that you can finally, truly love your whole self and feel authentic and better.
Join me for an exciting conversation about what this really looks like and practical ways to get there! My guest for the podcast will be the one and only Monica Pelayo, she is a Shadow Coach Expert, a brilliant and intuitive sister who’s learned the road by living it. LISTEN NOW →
