6 Steps To Self-Care Through Self-Compassion

Are you harder on yourself than anybody else?

Do you find it hard to forgive your mistakes?

Do you take things personally?

Self compassion is, in a lot of ways, the foundation for real self care. I’d call it the most inner way to provide care for yourself…and subsequently others.

Here’s why

I’ve always been the type of person who takes things very personally. You know… Someone’s short with me, or aggressive or over reacting to something. I think that I’ve done something wrong.

Most of the time, they’re just having a shitty day or hitting their own stuff.

The amount of stress this causes me is over the top, so I’ve learned to stop, take a breath and realize that they are human and having a bad moment or day.

It has ultimately lead to me being able to be more gentle and compassionate with others too.

How To Get Into Your “Feminine Vs. Feminist Power”

This weeks video answers a question from a YouTube subscriber “What are your opinions on being a feminist?”

Great question!

Well, in this video I cover the difference between the Feminine Power movement and what it is evolving from; the feminist movement.

I honor our sister forbears from the feminist movement, but make clear that what the world needs now is feminine power and that this is different from what the early feminists were fighting for.

8 Tips For How To Receive More In Your Life

According to nature, the feminine is all about receiving. Just have a peek down there if you need more convincing!

Unlike the visible, external expression of male genitals, our pussy has a hidden, internal expression.

To receive is to take in, to take in is to receive…

Like the inner pull of the ocean’s tide, as the water rolls in [think yin] your ocean is receiving back from the efforts of the outward flow.

 

Think about it

How often do you really receive?

When someone sends you a compliment is your natural instinct to accept it graciously, or to dodge and hide away from the praise?

In this week’s video, I am giving you 8 juicy tips on how to receive more in your life, because when you are receiving you are connected to your feminine essence.

 

Here’s a sneak preview of the tips!

Receive praise!

When someone extends a compliment to you, I encourage you to step into your feminine by fully embracing the praise.

Perhaps a stranger told you how much she likes your blouse, or a work superior highlighted you for your excellent work on a presentation.

Do not reject these simple words by making a self-deprecating statement on how “this old blouse doesn’t even fit me nicely anymore,” or saying “oh no, no, I stuttered over my words and completely messed up my last slide.”

What if…

…Instead

…you practice receiving praise by:

  1. Taking a breath
  2. Thanking them gracefully and graciously with a simple “Thank you.”

How To Soften Into Your Feminine Power

Did you know that softening is one of the greatest paths to true inner strength?

And yes, you read those words correctly…

…softening leads to strength.

This belief is certainly not what society wants us to adopt and accept, however for a woman who presents herself to the world through her flowing, feminine essence, one of our greatest superpowers is in the softening.

Softening puts you on a plush path to opening, and opening is like the budding flower blossoming into full pedals of feminine power.

 

How so?

Learning to soften our body, our voice and our mental chatter are 3 feminine keys for how to soften.

Maybe you can relate to my previous beliefs of thinking that strength came from being hard, self-assured and forthright.

A bit closed even.

I was taught..

How strength was equated to the amount of intensity in our efforts and actions.

How much can you push every fiber of your being forward to get as many things done in a certain period of time? How much can you produce?

How strong and assertive can you be in the corporate work-place, a field dominated by men and masculinity?

 

Sound like anyone you know?

It felt like whenever the word strength or success came up, a picture of a really macho, masculine man would appear in my mind, and I would funnel all of my actions through this image.

I didn’t hear strength or success in the same sentence as femininity, and the word softness was on a different page altogether!

If anything, my perspective on the world was that strength meant hardness and being tough.

My poor body and voice would then carry that strength and rigidity in my communication with people, friends and lovers.

 

The result…

The more I lived life like this, worked like this and conducted relationships like this, the more pain I felt inside, and the more “separate” I felt and the less like my authentic self.

The more I lived life like this…the less I attracted truly masculine men toward me…in fact, usually the opposite…but that’s a story for another day.

I invite you to watch this weeks video: 3 Keys For “How To Soften Into Your Feminine Power” where I answer a question from a subscriber about “How To Soften The Voice…”

Pro tip!  This one goes a loooong way when it comes to communicating with men in relationships too.

How To Receive More In Your Life

Be honest.

What’s your first response when somebody compliments you?

“You look great!”

“Job well done!”

“Delicious cake!”

I know, I used to push it away and say “Oh, no I don’t; I didn’t;  I can do better…”

Ouch.

When you praise someone and they don’t receive it, it hurts, right?

So, I learned to receive praise….gracefully, gratefully and graciously. Receiving praise and compliments is one of the eight tips for how to receive more in your life.
