Sometimes women get stuck in their toxic masculine energy. This can be because of many factors but it all comes down to our fast paced lifestyle, being out of sync with the moon cycles, lack of community and not using our hands (aka holding a tiny black screen all day!).
Which manifests for some women as:
feeling stressed all the time
being in flight or fight mode for years
operating from a point of fear
the need to control everything
But it’s very easy for us women to return to our natural state and divine feminine energy.
Here are 3 ways to nurture your Divine Feminine and call back your natural receiving energy.
Be creative – This means making something with you hands. Can be art, can be a meal, knitting, writing/journaling, doing your make up/hair
Spend time in nature – Being within the trees, walking barefoot in the grass, try to aim for 10-30 minutes in the sun and within the trees. We need to do a more concerted effort to reconnect with mother nature.
Learn to say no – As women we often obligated to do things for others, take care of others and put ourselves last on the priority list. We often feel bad saying no and feel like we need to handle more than we can – it creates bitterness and resentment. Start practicing saying no today. It will be the first step in healing the the wounded feminine.
I know its this time of year when everyone is gearing up for 2024. Goals/resolutions, vision boards, planning planning planning. Here’s your reminder that along with these activities you should take every opportunity be mindful about your journey…
Practice Gratitude: Having genuine gratitude for what you have now!
Visualize: Imagine your life as if if you have achieved your goals. What you want, where you want to be, down to ever. last. detail.
Adjust your thoughts: Think about what you want everyday and act like you already have it. This trains your mind to see more opportunities to get you closer to what you want.
Transform: everyday, every minute you need to SHOW up as the person who has what you want and has achieved the goal you are going to achieve. This will be the most challenging part, but you have to push through and do it.
Journalling is a form of therapy. It offers a mental and emotional release that you may not even know you need. Furthermore, using journal prompts offers a quiet reflection and forces us to be honest and thoughtful.
For my birthday this year, I chose a few birthday journal prompts to get me to both intentionally reflect on the past 12 months and refocus on the year ahead.
How are you celebrating your birthday (today, this weekend, later this week/month)?
When you think about the last 12 months, what is 1 word that immediately comes to mind? why?
What happened this year that you are so grateful for?
How have you stepped out of your comfort zone this year?
If you could speak to yourself 10 years from, what would you say to yourself? What would Older Self say to you?
Do you use Journal Prompts? Which journal prompts do you love to use?
Self talk can be both constructive or positive. Maybe it’s age and the wisdom that comes with it but I’m able to intercept the no so positive self talk dialogues. Interestingly enough I also find that my self awareness has increased so much that even when I’m dealing with certain situations I can usually insert more positive self talk like: “you are tougher than this”, “this is nothing compared to that” or “it’s time to set you intentions, create a plan and get to where you need to be”.

Have you heard of the “Human Design Chart”? (aka Human Design, HDC, Body Graph). Looking at the picture you may think it’s some sort of robotic humanoid. Well it’s not robotic, but it does have everything to do with being human and how to understand our whole human system so we can live our best life.
The best definition I’ve heard is that Human Design is equal parts practical and woowoo. Human Design can be used as a target operating model for a person on how they can live in alignment with their truest self, how they make decisions and what gifts they are meant to give to the world. It’s both helpful to the self but also to people you work and live with (think business teams and families). Interestingly, the only pieces of information required to build your body graph are your birth date, time and location.
I’ve been learning more about my HDC for the last 2 years and I think I’m ready to share more about what I’ve learned about my own chart. Check back soon to learn more!
Google what b-roll is and you’ll see that “it is essential in narrative features to create a sense of time and place and to add layers of meaning to a story.”
When we think about life, we think mainly about the starting points and accomplishments. But we hear so very often to “enjoy the ride”. The ride could be any combination of the daily mundane, errands, simple pleasures and maybe even stumbles. And it’s the ride that is b-roll. As someone who is a creative and who is constantly documenting life – I know that b-roll is life.
