You Don’t Have to Choose Between Success & Your Soul
On this day after the Full Moon in Leo, I invite you to spend some time thinking about what you desire and what brings you pleasure.
Most ambitious, caring women, tend to put off pleasure and desire as something they need to earn by working hard, or a “nice to have” when they’ve checked everything of their to-do list.
This brainwashing is a tool the patriarchy uses to keep women in a constant state of depletion so we are easily manipulated.
Pleasure filled, rested, happy women have a lot of energy to change the status quo.
Your pleasure is a form of activism.
This is important: You don’t need to earn pleasure. You don’t need to look a certain way, or make a certain amount of money to claim what you desire. Pleasure is your birthright, and one of the main reasons you chose to incarnate in a body!
Today, can you gently tell your inner voice that you don’t need to earn pleasure, that you can make time for it right now?
The first step is knowing what you want.
I sometimes think it’s fun to imagine an alternative universe where someone hands me a couple million dollars and I go to a place where no one has an opinion on how I’m spending my time.
What would the most luxurious, incredible day look like?
What would you eat?
How would you eat it?
Who would you spend time with?
What would you talk about?
How would you take care of your body?
What would be so fun?
Design the most epic day in the life.
And then do it again.
Imagine a day in Paris… and a day at the beach… and a day in your dream home.
Then notice the patterns and elements. How can you create a version of that in your life now?
If there are baths, can you buy a few extra candles and plants for your bath at home?
Can you make more time for cooking gorgeous meals?
Can you plan a day trip with your girlfriends?
Can you ask your partner for a massage?
Can you spend an hour outside tomorrow?
Pleasures nurture your system, they fill your tank, heal your body, and your central nervous system. It is such a great use of your time.
This is the week we celebrate love. Take some time to love yourself.
Happy Full Moon and Valentine’s Day.
Simple actions to take your life back, know your worth & feel alive no matter how drained, overwhelmed and far gone you feel.
