Really listening to your body – tune into, and tap into your female animal body. This is such a lush and rich place – a quiet place where we really are called collectively.

It’s about knowing of beauty in our bodies as women – feeling it as its own frequency, as its own energy. It’s the beginning, it’s the origin, it’s our wholeness, it’s about our unity with all that is. Tune into this frequency of beauty – this inner beauty and unity with all that is. Tune into the feminine face of God.

When we’re listening and tuning into our female animal body we are really looking at this feminine paradigm of life. A paradigm that embraces that it’s all related. This unknowable mystery of the unity of all life inside of the wholeness is the whole spectrum of what we might call the good stuff and the bad stuff; the pretty stuff and the “ugly” stuff.

Feel into this wholeness, this whole spectrum as you explore your relationship with beauty and what happens inside of your body. For me, it’s a feeling almost of suspension – a falling in love experience. What touches us deeply and what we call beauty is that which makes us feel that sense of being whole, and in the unity of all of life. We have a heart-opening experience: we fall in love. We may also experience a suspension of our thought process – an ah (we might even gasp like that). We might feel a sense of grace – this feeling that all is right with the world.

Simone de Beauvoir said, “To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in one’s self.”

As women awakening to our Shakti, it is important that we be in a state of inquiry about what beauty really is, and that we stay awake to the messages and the programming that is so prevalent in the world around us. It is far too easy to find ourselves in a state of hating on our bodies or deciding that we are not beautiful according to some program or some other definition of beauty.

Feel into this word “beauty”, even say it out loud to yourself a couple of times. “Beauty” actually comes from the Greek word that means hora, or hour. There’s an energy inside of the origin of this word that’s about being of one’s hour, and it points to the place of being ripe and full.

A consequence of female self-love is that a woman grows convinced of social worth. Her love for her body will be unqualified, which is the basis of female identification. If a woman loves her own body, she does not begrudge what other women do with theirs; if she loves femaleness, she champions its rights.

When we start to really listen to this intelligence inside of the body, what I find is that it knows the answers. This can be a great access point for us to start moving towards what the animal body is really craving, what it’s really wanting.

Thank you for all you do in your life and the ways you honor the feminine. It makes a difference. I feel so honored to be in this circle and in this conversation with you.
