How is the month of love going for you? I’ve been filling my cup, detoxing winter from my body and home space to make room for spring and enjoying food, music and dance. If you’ve been following me on Facebook or Instagram, then you probably saw what an amazing time I had in Las Vegas at the JLO concert! She was the best Valentine ever!
I danced and felt so good for multiple reasons. 3 reasons in particular that I want to share with you…
1. Living in my power takes me high
When I was a young girl I was in love with life – traveling the world, living in different cities, soaking up cultures, falling in love with new experiences in Greece, Egypt, Europe, Australia, NZ, China, Japan Tibet and India. I was whole, my own woman. After my divorce, my definition of being a woman and my definition of life changed. I let the experience of a divorce and of failure define me. Since 2010 no matter how much life I’ve been living or any amount of re-inventing myself or success has never made me fly as high as I wanted to go because I was carrying the heavy burden and belief that my success depended on being in a successful and lasting relationship with a man.
How did watching JLO change that belief for me? Her show was nothing short of magnificent. She put her heart soul and joy into the dances, lighting, choreography and she brought joy to everyone in the theater. She was a lightning rod channeling power through her!
“I want to feel and look and be doing that,” I said to myself at one moment in the concert.
Yes she’s had a few different husbands, multiple lovers and boyfriends but how many people in safe, comfortable relationships are creating the way she’s creating? She can look back on her life and say, “I lived out my destiny.”
So I’ve changed my belief that no man wants to be with a woman of power. He will come when he comes. And if he doesn’t come that’s cool too. I’m not waiting for it. I’ve got a new inspiring life to live that requires me to be on fire, in my passion, traveling all over the world spreading joy. And until then – yes lovers are welcome!
2. Joy makes me fly
I went to see the JLO experience with my friend from Ibiza. Her mother just passed away and she has been grieving for the last several months When I asked her what she was going to do this year she surprised me. She said, “I want to know what I’m capable of. I’ve just lost everything and death has shown her power. Now I want life to show me her power.” Wow! This girl is 30 and she was kicking some serious wisdom to this 40-year-old priestess. She was flying across the room, in her joy, getting inspired, creating, being unstoppable. And I thought, she’s completely in her joy. And it’s cleansing her. The way it cleansed me when I lost everything and moved to Ibiza and started dancing.
I’ve been a little jaded from New York lately and Sascha made me see that joy was waiting for me if I would just let it in. So we acted like teenagers, hugged, cried, made plans to celebrate life and celebrate women. I booked my tickets to Ibiza with one suitcase in my hand ready to fly from one retreat to another..and another and another! So we begin in April with Feminine Awakening in Ibiza and and I’m sending it out the Universe to keep doing this across Italy, Greece, France, Bali, NYC, Hawaii and anywhere else that needs me!
3. Connecting & creating with love makes me feel alive
JLO is not married. She’s not in a relationship. In social media I see a lot of images and messages around dating, and relationships that feel forced. They reflect people fulfilling society’s expectations of them. Not all those images feel real and authentic, of love and joy coming from the heart.
Where are the lightning rods living their lives on fire? Where are the joy bringers? Where are these templates of power and love?
And how many people are really living in their joy, in complete freedom of what the outside world expects from them? Not many. We need more people living their true passion coming alive to love.
So this year I’m going to experiment with how much I can create and with how many people I can connect with deeply, with how many countries I can dance in and spread joy, with how many women I can teach and train to embody joy, dancing in a waterfall of feminine power and feminine light with them, creating something more beautiful and magical with them than I could ever create on my own!
“The moment you feel you are no longer dependent on anyone, a deep coolness and a deep silence settles inside, a relaxed let-go. It does not mean you stop loving. On the contrary, for the first time you know a new quality, a new dimension of love – a love that is no longer biological, a love that is closer to friendliness than any relationship. That’s why I am not even using the word friendship, because that ‘ship’ has drowned so many people.”
The deeper you can feel, love and connect with intimacy – the higher you can fly into bliss, ecstasy and freedom. Joy brings you all of this and more!
This is a moment of rebirth for all of us. For me it will manifest like this…
I want to see Life reflect back my soul’s power, beauty and passion. I’m ready to see myself in my full glory and shine that light out to the world. I’m ready to taste the light of my own ecstasy. I’m ready to walk in total freedom making love to life.
I am a bride walking up to an altar of stars, ready for life to unveil her holy face.
I want to see how high I can feel, how far I can fly and how deep I can connect with love.
I want to celebrate life and I want to celebrate her NOW! Are you with me?
