Don’t blame the planets

Did you notice ?

Mercury is retrograde.

Saturn is also retrograde.

Pluto, and Jupiter are also retrograde!

And oh so many are using the movements of the planets to push around things, put on hold choices to be made, feel the feelings than have been long suppressed… before the excuses where time, money, kids, work, activities… now we can blame the planets, as we have more information about them !

But here is the thing. 

What if this way of looking at the planetary movement is old ?

What if planets are direct or retrograde, as they always have been BTW, to serve you ?

Not for you to put your life on hold, rather to actively engage in creating the life you want to live ?

How would you enter the dance of the planets with a CREATRIX attitude ?

Once you awaken to your creatrix powers, you know that you are always, seating in the drivers seat of your life.

You are being served by the signs and directions. Yet there is one thing : to receive and discern, you must be present in your body. You must leave behind the mind, the concepts, the definitions that in the old paradigm were your excuse, your story, your circumstances.

Once you claim your creatrix powers, you are bigger than your circumstances. As you have always been. The difference is that now you know how to consciously access and use your power.

Radical Self Love & Sensuality Practices

Imagine for a second, what would this world be if every woman loved and respected herself so much that she is first in her priorities  ? What if every woman would take care of herself first, in order for her to have more resources to contribute her gifts, beauty and love to the world ?

This is a practice for those women who have claimed the first position on the daily list of tasks – without asking for permission !

Radical Self Love : 

Before going out of bed : with a hand in your belly and one in your heart : be grateful for this day. You are awake ! When we stop taking life for granted, we start seeing the magic of it all.

Before breakfast : light a candle (see below for scented candles) – what do you intent to experience yourself today?

Breakfast : what is your favourite breakfast? Croissant and Hot Chocolate? A Healthy Smoothy ? Go for it ! Indulge yourself, mindfully.

Shower : Notice the water on your skin. Which temperature feels just PERFECT and DELICIOUS to you today ?

Get dressed : When getting dressed, focus on that part of your body that you LOVE the most. Really proud, and make you feel like a — WOW ! A Glowing Woman ! Yep, it can be the colour of your eyes ! If so, chose a color that makes your eyes sparkle !

Make a date with YOURSELF today : take yourself for lunch and have some quality SOLO time. Share with yourself your wildest dreams. Your deepest longings. Listen to that part of you that is dreaming with an incredible glowing life, relationships, career, family, house, car, anything ! Be fully present for yourself, this dates is minimum one hour ! Give yourself the attention and love that you deserve. That only you can give to yourself.

And then, look at your dreams. Believe in their beauty. Fully embrace and receive that vision of yourself.

If you can dream it , you can create it.  Be there, for you. Everything changes. Expect Magic when you open up to yourself !

Claim your Sensuality :

Sensuality : coming back to our senses. Since long time ago we have left home, our bodies, to give all the power to our intellect, most women have lost the capacity to FEEL.

The need to CONTROL our bodies so we could focus on our minds contributed to the creation of a world of pills, treatments and practices to reinforce that split.

While massages and spa treats are totally delicious from time to time, they do not build up the confidence and love in our bodies and life that we need to cultivate if we really want to experience love, connection and soul beauty – that one that moves you to tears.

Coming Back to your Senses:

SEE

EYE GAZE. “When eye contact between two people is initiated and maintained, an invisible energetic circuit is established between the two participants, dissolving the barriers that ordinarily separate them from each other, drawing them ever closer into a shared awareness of union.”  Will Johnson Read more practices here

SMELL

Do you know your favourite perfume or scent ? Have you taken the time to really discover what is the scent that you really love on your skin, your bed linen, your home ? Take time to smell flowers, essential oil, or natural scented candles and body lotions and surround yourself with this perfume.

HEAR

Which songs crack your heart wide open ? Which songs invite your body to a sensual dance ? Make a play list, and dance them away (if possible, naked!)

TOUCH

The feminine touch is extremely sensual and powerfully healing. Feminine touch with no hidden agenda – just enjoying the sensations as they come. Without a pre-conceived idea of how it should be, or where to move next. Practice the art of feminine touch . Take a few deep breaths and make yourself comfortable . Close your eyes and bring your full awareness into your body. Notice, which parts of your body need caring touch right now ? Is there a sensation of pain, tension or anything else that needs touch ? Place your hand. Breathe. ahhh..

TASTE

On your next meal, pay close attention what is in your plate . Do you notice textures and flavours ? Take the time to feel them a bit deeper : which flavours are your favourite ? Which sensations are triggered in your body ? Practice Mindful Eating with beautiful Hiba, founder of HealthWise and contributor to the Glowing Woman Journey Online Experience. 

FEEL

How does sensuality feel to you ?  Try different clothes and pay attention how different fabrics touch your skin and evoke a certain feeling in your body.

Most importantly, enjoy the process of discovery while claiming back your sensuality. It is a deep transformative practice.

The feminine beauty, flow and strength is found in the practice of being in touch with our deepest truth and daring to follow it until is manifested in our world.

Do you dare to experience it ?

Finding Balance : ask your Archetypes

The number #1 question my clients bring to Dare To Glow is “How do I find balance in my life, when I feel pulled in so many directions ?”

After so many generations cultivating our intellectual knowledge and developing our mind powers, we have constructed a dismembered image of ourselves, and our lives. Hence, the pull.

The journey of the Glowing Woman , she who sets herself on a quest for balance, creativity and freedom, starts with the initiation and integration of the four feminine archetypes : The Wise Old Woman, The Maiden, The Mother and The Enchantress. There are two of them, who “work” intimately together creating balance, that are the ones calling you back home.

Yes. Home. Your own Body-Home.

The two archetypes that restore Balance are :

The Mother : 

This archetype is embodied when a woman is ovulating.

She is the one who nurtures, who creates harmony and enjoys emotional balance.

She restores balance inviting you to nurture yourself before others.

In order to achieve this, it is necessary to release guilt and shame.

Observe in yourself : what are your believes (in form of excuses, stories, internal narratives) around the idea of taking time for yourself first ?

She invites you to connect with : selfless love and contribution.

Observe in yourself : how do you relate to these two aspects of her ? How do you practice selfless love to yourself and others ? How much do you feel you are contributing with your presence, work, words … ?

Her ways of helping you restore balance are body care, healthy eating (specially cooking it yourself), developing your creativity allowing your energies to flow and manifest into the world, spending time in nature (with no phones or headsets, please), and exercising developing physical strength.

“If your compassion does not include yourself – it is not complete.” – Buddha

The Wise Old Woman :

Opposite to the mother, this archetype is embodied when a woman is actually bleeding.  As polarities, they attract and work together towards the same goal : balance.

The Wise Old Woman, or the Shaman, Medicine Woman, invites you to find stillness to access a deeper place of knowing.

She invites you, every month, to release guilt and shame around your menstruation and around the need to slow down.

Observe in yourself : what are your beliefs around your menstruation (normally imprinted with your first period) ? and what does it mean to have the need to “slow down”? (are you less professional, not dynamic, not smart… and so on …

She invites you to connect with your truth to restore clarity and confidence. Now your empowerment as a glowing woman means that you are able to step in your truth, your intuition and vision and follow up with actions.

Observe in yourself : how do you experience clarity ? How much do you trust and follow your intuition?

As a wise woman, she knows that in order for you to connect with your truth, you need to reach stillness and practice inner listening.

Her ways to help you restore balance is by showing you the way home : to that body wisdom that will clearly show you what you need to remove and restore every month. She asks though body pain and discomfort, for quiet time for herself, as a precious luxury in our busy, busy lives.

“Cultivation of the intellect and its amazing potential is as important as reconnecting with the source. The problem lies in the belief that (intellectual knowledge and body wisdom) are antagonistic, that they can only be developed at the expense of the other; the belief that thinking and control take precedence over feeling and flowing, intelligence over intuition. Both need be nurtured equally and integrated for our coming into wholeness.” ~ The Sage explains to Maya, in The Heart of the Labyrinth, by Nicole Schwab.

There is a price that women are paying for not being in touch with these archetypes.

Women feel disconnected : they are unable to establish meaningful relationships, or contribute to the word their gifts and creativity.

Attracting money and experiencing trust feels more like a struggle that something that comes naturally.

Women feel the need to control their bodies and emotions to perform in a consistent way thought the month, reaching a dead point of feeling “empty” despite all the achievements.

We left our home for too long. Many generations of women have lived as the disembodied feminine. And that way of being is imprinted in our DNA.

At this point of time, we are all invited to transmute these experiences, and reinvent the feminine archetypes as they are evolving with us all.

“As within. So without.”

Ultimately, balance is not found by reorganising the external aspects of our lives.

Sustainable, long lasting balance is created by exploring, understanding and integrating the inner landscapes. Your body knows. When your body makes you feel unbalanced, it is time to come back home. To re-member all part of yourself.

To recognise that you are not broken. That there is nothing to be fixed, or a new skill that you need to learn.

Mother yourself back to alignment, and you will find yourself safe and comfortable back home. When you make yourself a priority, balance is restored.

THE HEART OF THE LABYRINTH

by Nicole Schwab , Author of THE HEART OF THE LABYRINTH

” As everything she thought she knew about herself disintegrates: her health, career, family and identity, Maya embarks on a journey of discovery to the land of her ancestors. There, a mysterious Sage guides her through dreams, visions and lifetimes, to the heart of the labyrinth.

Coming face-to-face with her subconscious belief that being a woman is a threat, she understands that to step into wholeness she will have to reclaim the sacred feminine fire burning in her soul.

But what is at stake far exceeds her individual life: with it sits the fate of the Earth herself, waiting for the Priestess to be reborn.

A grand, soul-shifting answer to the hungry soul’s question: who am I? Maya’s story calls us back to a sacred, personal connection with the Earth.

Nicole Schwab is a mesmerising new voice for our times, offering a message of Earth-centered wisdom reuniting us with the divine feminine.”

Synopsis : The Heart of the Labyrinth

~~~

Excerpt from Chapter IX Willakuti: The Return of the Sun

Saywa – “In the depth of the night, I arrived at the ruins. There was no moon and the sky was adorned with crisp stars twinkling through the icy cold of the vast plains. The Southern Cross magnificently parted the sky, right above the extensive temple grounds. A small group of men and women sat around a fire, most of them dressed in ceremonial clothing. They welcomed me in my native language and invited me to join them. I walked up the few steps leading into the main precinct and stopped before the eerie silhouettes of the ancient monoliths stoically holding on to their secrets, defying the passing of time. I marveled at the mysterious gate of the sun, a chiseled stone arch dancing in the glow of the crackling flames. It seemingly invited us to step into another dimension and leave behind all limitations imposed by our delusional minds.

More and more people kept coming throughout the night, drawn by a mysterious pull they could neither explain nor understand. They had simply followed their bodies, gathering around our fire with the unspoken faith of those who know they are about to witness something spectacular. I did not see them, but felt the growing human presence around me, and the bubbling energy of joint anticipation. My eyes were closed. As the fire slowly burned to the ground, I sat absorbed by the process of my purification from the past, shedding layer after layer of confusion, being led effortlessly into the deep dark void of pure creative potential. There, surrendered to the longest and blackest of nights, in the silent circle of our prayers, we waited. We waited for the return of the light.

Time stopped. There was no movement, no breath, no sign of life. Only the intense cold and the mute indifference of the stones mocking our impatience in the face of eternity. We held the void with all our courage, willing to hold it forever, trusting life to spring forth once again from the creative miracle of our minds. …”

The Heart of the Labyrinth,  by Nicole Schwab

The best accessory you can ever wear

The best accessory of a self-actualised woman is peace.

When you carry peace within you, you become beautifully present.

You are gracefully visible. It is easy to fill up a room.

Effortlessly you attract the people that resonates with your Soul.

Your posture is tall and lean you stand still, you seat tall, and walk slowly.

You are magnetic.

You glow beauty from the inside out.

You listen You are listened

Peace creates grace and grace gives peace.
