Touch and physical intimacy.
Physical intimacy is one of the most basic human needs. Lack of touch and physical intimacy can make us ill and depressed. I’m not talking about s🌸xual intimacy, but rather touch, hugs, sleeping next to someone etc.
... rarely looks like this in reality. But it almost always looks like this in social media. The precious moments that are just filled with gold. Laughter. Pure joy.
But what about all the pulling of mothers in every imaginable direction.... physically, mentally and emotionally? The kid(s) needs to eat, poop, take a shower, get dressed... S(he) demands the iPad or otherwise there’s a food strike. Your husband/partner needs a time out to breath or to create (something)… You need to deliver something ASAP for work. Your friend is in a relationship crises and you need to be there for her.... You can feel your heart racing just reading this… BUT WAIT a minute. Stop. Breath....
Today I’m honoring you with one of your favorite flowers. Thank you for holding me. For loving me abundantly (but not unconditionally ;)). For teaching me to be a child of nature. For teaching me to be proud of who I am. To stand up for myself. To be in my power. Thank you for teaching me to love my body and to be proud of it.
One of the most powerful sets of words I know. Unbelievably enough it’s a line I’ve said and been told twice the past weeks. In two of my most treasured and important relationships. The amount of pain associated with this week is tremendous. But the healing that is taking place and that I am taking myself through is even bigger.
Mmm, what is the big sweet secret around attracting what you REALLY want?
So many women I know and many of my clients are NOT COMPLETELY satisfied with where they are in life and they want to attract something better, newer, more joyful into their lives. They basically want to feel more happy. But they are actually not CLEAR on what it is they really want to attract.
Yes my beautiful wild woman (and man) – it’s true. Dive deep. Merge with your pain. Listen to your wise body and how it wants you to liberate. If you say you want a life of ecstasy and full body orgasm – this is the other side of the coin.
So far in my life, I haven’t gone through one single relationship without facing the ugly face of rejection. Feeling rejected is something that my system is hyper sensitive to. It takes all kinds of silly and not so silly forms. The feeling of being the one that wants to spend more time together, the feeling of wanting more sex than the one I’m sharing bed with, the need of physical closeness...
This post is for those of you who suffer. For those of you who are not feeling so bloody jolly right now. For those of you who feel that rather than having a light, fun and cozy time coming up in your life, you feel heavier and heavier each day Xmas is getting closer.
So I dare you to be a bit vulnerable to just see how it feels. It’s the hardest thing for a lot of people. It’s even something that is completely unimaginable for most. What would other people think, how would that make me look, to be human in public – what a taboo…
