It’s time to Get Free

It’s time to Get Free

What is it to be free? I like to say that sovereignty is finding ok-ness within that requires no one or no thing to change without. I believe that we came here to play. And part of how we access that play is through ending the war. Ending the war with the system, with each other, and of course, within ourselves. In this terrain of controversy-less living, we find complementary, domains, and power with rather than power over. We explore polarities and our inner masculine and feminine energies. We harmonize in compatible relationships, and we contact the divine through our sensual bodies.

"Holding the dark feminine, the wildness, the rawness, the hugeness, the primordial—whether publicly or privately—can be a deep part of your reclamation journey."

When you are committed to ending the wars in your life, you know that the war started within. It begins and ends with you and the reclamation of your power of choice. But what does taking radical responsibility look like? It looks a lot like the bubble of laughter when you finally see that you were the one holding yourself under the water and screaming that you were drowning. It looks like the lighthearted shrug of owning something you thought was so shameful, it might have killed you to acknowledge. It looks like a committed and sacred practice of appreciating what is, trusting what is wanted, and knowing that all is well and getting better…

Explore ways to deepen your self-inquiry, support practices, and to accelerate your transformation into embodiment, pleasure, and a desire-driven life in one of my Featured Masterclasses.

The feminine essence is playful, creative, and dynamic. And she wants to feel seen, understood, approved of, and protected. I’m creating a masculine container where adult women and their child-selves both have free reign to play. Even at the same time! It’s time to get free and say YES to every little creative impulse, even if your container has to hold the voice of your inner critic trying to preempt and protect you from imagined feedback.

"Holding the dark feminine, the wildness, the rawness, the hugeness, the primordial - whether publicly or privately - can be a deep part of your reclamation journey."

When we are in trauma patterns and associated victim consciousness, we can vacillate between compliance and obedience and caretaking, and the subtle and secret and wishful expectation that we will get our needs met if we are a good girl. And then we begin to experience the dissatisfaction and disillusionment and frustration. And we start to rebel against the system.

Podcast: Voice Reclamation

In this episode, I talk all about reclaiming our voice, literally and figuratively, through examining our internal family systems. We may ask ourselves what emotions, thoughts or expressions within us are in polarity with one another, with the hopes of liberating our inner child. I tell a story about how reclaiming my literal voice through singing lessons, alongside mentors, has changed my life by allowing myself to examine my “performer parts” and dive into exquisite discomfort. Listen Now > >

Podcast: Wear Your Villain Crown

Are you comfortable with being the villain? I do a deep dive into shame and how we transcend the “good girl” archetype through balancing our nervous system and spending time with our deepest fears, and also when it may be appropriate to lay our villain crown down when it comes to parenting.
