    Body Love Series Episode 4: You Are The Ritual

    Body Love Series Episode 4: You Are The Ritual

    What is your self love language?



    I believe it begins with making choices that are in alignment with who you are and building trust with yourself. We must be full in ourselves in order to find the love we desire, and by getting to know our inner selves deeply we can begin this process of cultivating self-love.






    Easier said than done, right?
    Realistically, living in self love can be as simple as embracing mundane moments and allowing yourself to become something new. It looks like loving yourself even when you feel stuck or messy. In truth, every small and simple action can be a ritual in itself.



    In this episode, I invite you to explore your own self-love language, whether that be yoga, lighting candles, praying or meditating, or any other everyday activity that you allow yourself to relish in. Ultimately it is about letting your inner self know that you are listening to it.

    Body Love Series Episode 3: Cultivating Safety in the Body

    Body Love Series Episode 3: Cultivating Safety in the Body

    Do you know how to create safety and cultivate it in the body?Society often intellectualizes safety, while neglecting the importance of feeling safe first in the body. Feeling safe in the body involves physical, emotional, and energetic experiences of safety. And you get to define what that means to you.In this episode of the Body Love Series, I share my personal experiences of feeling safe and practicing hypervigilance, particularly in new environments. We get to reflect on the importance of setting boundaries, knowing when and how to communicate boundaries, and prioritizing one's well-being even if it means disappointing others.
    No is a complete sentence, being in the right relationship with yourself will allow your inner wisdom to lead the way.

    Body Love Series Episode 2: How to Feel More Deeply in Your Body

    Body Love Series Episode 2: How to Feel More Deeply in Your Body

    How can you deepen your connection with your body and better understand its language?
    In this second episode of the Body Love series, How to Feel More Deeply in Your Body, we discuss the importance of listening to our bodies and understanding the signals they send us.
    In my own health journey, I came to the realization that I hadn't been taking care of myself in a way that prioritizes my vitality and well-being. Like so many of us do, I was coping with burnout through unhealthy habits.
    The reality is health encompasses more than just physical well-being – it also extends to the emotional, spiritual, and energetic. In this episode, I offer techniques for understanding what causes energy drain and stress in our lives, and how to address those issues through pleasure and embodiment practices.
    You're invited to try the body scan practice, a tool that I have used to tune into the messages my body is trying to send. By focusing on simple sensations rather than attaching emotions or stories, you can better understand how your body communicates and deeply heal your relationship with self.

    Body Love Series Episode 1: How Body Love Leads to Better Sex

    Body Love Series Episode 1: How Body Love Leads to Better Sex

    In this first episode of the Body Love series, we explore one of my favorite topics - how to have better sex! And the answer lies in developing a deep, loving relationship to our body.Having a strong relationship with one's body has a direct impact on sexual experiences, intimacy, and connection. As we expand our understanding of pleasure through the body, we discover the key to experiencing and embracing pleasure in other facets of life. Feeling comfortable in one's body allows for complete surrender and reception during intimate moments.
    It is so important to question negative thoughts about your body, to challenge societal standards and unrealistic expectations. Appreciating how the body feels, rather than solely focusing on physical appearance, cultivates a more loving and intimate relationship with one's body. In a society that emphasizes the mind over the body, I encourage you to tap into your bodies' deep wisdom and intuition, acknowledging the transformative power of emotions and feelings.

    Healing Burnout and Cultivating Pleasure as a Mother

    Healing Burnout and Cultivating Pleasure as a Mother

    The societal pressure placed on mothers to be perfect, do it all, and prioritize everyone else's needs above their own is enormous. That's why it's essential to recognize and normalize talking about burnout, as many mothers often dismiss their exhaustion and disconnection as a part of the journey they have to manage alone.
    In this episode, I discuss the signs of burnout and offer valuable strategies to navigate and overcome it. This looks like asking for support, acknowledging the need for self-care beyond superficial practices, and reconnecting with one's sexuality and life force. I encourage you to let go of guilt and shame associated with prioritizing your well-being and reclaim the power to feel vibrant, alive, and turned on in your life.
    I hope you can use the practical techniques I share to process and transform the overwhelming energy of burnout. Conscious breathing, physical movement, and grounding practices have been essential to my own journey. By becoming present and addressing your feelings, you can begin your journey towards reclaiming your pleasure and the joy of motherhood.
    Burnout is not a permanent state mama, and it is possible to experience vitality and orgasmic pleasure on your path to healing.
    In this episode:

    1:49: Addressing the prevalence of motherhood burnout and its impact.
    5:27: Balancing multiple responsibilities and societal expectations postpartum.
    6:41: Losing connection, creativity, and feeling overwhelmed.
    08:06: Signs of mommy burnout: difficulty asking for support, feeling disconnected, loss of sex drive, neglecting self-care, and running on empty.
    16:02: Acknowledging burnout and overcoming guilt and shame.
    18:57: Techniques for processing and transmuting burnout energy - deep breathing, movement, and grounding.

It’s an important topic and one that affects many of us. Whether you’ve been in a relationship for a few months or several years, it’s natural for the intensity of passion to shift over time.

    The importance of knowing what sexual season you’re in.
    Understanding what brings you pleasure in and out of the bedroom.
    How to explore your sexual desires.
    How to have powerful and transformative conversations about sex with your partner.

    So, let’s explore some practical tips and advice that can help you maintain the passion and intimacy that is essential for any loving, long-term relationship.
