Embodiment: A new theme we are hearing more often these days,
Has become the next mindfulness perhaps?
We are hearing embodiment as embodiment dance, or embodiment as a dance or being in the body, but it is so much more than that.
Watch this episode that I created about Embodiment.
Embodiment has been in my life for a few years now and I began to look into this term from that spark of inspiration.
It was a time when I had enough of minimizing my own intelligence and began to seek other gifts within me.
I realised My body is where I discover all of my gifts.
My body is how I express.
My body loves.
My body is how I share my love and emotions,
My body is the place for where I heal.
When I began this journey of really listening intentionally, I discovered how deep this work of embodiment actually went.
This was more than just listening to my body’s wisdom. This was more than just doing an embodiment dance, this work of embodiment was the true healing I required.
This was about attuning to my inner cycles and with that how i was so lovingly attuned to the cycles of the Great mother.
I began to go deeper, into my heart, into my womb, into my yoni. And the further I went in, the further I felt a sense of relief. It was here all along, my healing, my place of freedom.
No wonder I was left feeling drained and exhausted, lost and confused with my life really.. I was disconnected to these potent, powerful places of knowing.
I was pretending.
Living in separation.
Not honouring my own desires and truth, my reason for being here, that were not in my head, but right here in my body, womb and heart.
I was listening to the needs of everyone, the standards of everyone. I was listening to my own self doubts and fears instead of resting in this place of knowing.
When I moved to Mexico 7 years ago, the Universe knew I was ready for big things, but with that meant, she had to put me in a situation where I had to really strip away from everything I knew.
I was in a new country, no one I knew, a new relationship, no money, everything robbed from us. It was scary as hell back then but also I could feel this great weight lifted off me, like I could breathe again, a chance to start a new canvas.
It sparked an inner joy.
I realised a great resilience within me .An inner strength we all women have.
I re-found my sexuality, in a sacred way and through this, I remembered my voice, that didn’t have to walk around harshly but I could speak with love.The love and grace this world is so needing.
My energy was speaking for itself. Through my sensuality, I was placing boundaries in ways I didn’t know I could.
I began to do things only if it was feeling like a hell yes, hence I went on a path of unlayering myself from people pleasing for approval.
I began to shift through all the old conditions of what I thought I wanted and realized exactly what I desired in my life.
I slowed down.
I surrendered and lived in the moment.
I could breathe again.
I danced but not in the way I knew, this was more to reconnect with my spirit, my queen self.
And here I realised that my pleasure saved me.
My pleasure healed me
I learned to let go.
I received messages from my highest self.. I was listening.. She was getting louder.
She told me to slow down, told me when to listen to this opportunity and I sometimes didn’t listen, so this led me down those old roads of self doubt and old patterns with people until I listened..
Until I reset and re listened again through my connection to her- through my beautiful body, through the opening and loving heart, through my womb.
My Queen was being heard. And I could feel her smiling through me.
But I realised the more I did this work, the more pain that moved through me, pain that had to move through me, in order for me to see more of this beautiful soul within me, that i am.
That’s the thing that people don’t talk about, with the feminine work, it is painful, it is dark, it is mysterious, it is unknown.
But…. With that comes so much life, so much growth, so much magic, so many opportunities, so much love, so much flow.
Because when you listen to Her, in your flow, in you just being with her, listening, feeling, moving, embracing… she blossoms more. And you begin to see yourself closer and more connected and as one with the Divine. You stop listening to the thoughts and noise of your mind and around you.
You stop relying on the external to tell you how beautiful or worthy you are.
You stop floating around, lost and confused with life, and begin to anchor in.
Instead you soften into this deep, held container that you build in your body for your inner Queen to continue flourishing, feeling nourished, so she can shine and thrive in a way that nurtures her soul and heart.
You see everything around you as this reflection of that- as beautiful, as loving, as happy.
What a blessing life is.
