    I first found you on the Raw Food Rehab WISH Summit. I am blow away by how long I’ve been denying myself. I look forward to reinvention!

    There is a lecture series by successful women here in Cincinnati, OH (Actresses, politicians, religious women, well known Doctors, sports figures, announcers, newscasters, etc.). The lecture series is called Smart Talk and is held in the beautiful Aranoff Theatre here in Cinci. It would be great to have you come here sometime and talk to the ladies of Cincinnati about your School of Womanly Arts. I lived in NH and have been wanting to do your Mastery Course for probably 6 years or so now but have not had the funds. Attending Mastery is still on my wish list and I’ve been contemplating whether to start a Mam Gena’s Book Study group!?

      SG Laura from Cincinnati- A Mama Gena book club/study group is a FANTASTIC idea. I’ve heard some off the charts brags from SG’s all over the world who have chosen to do this. What’s that saying? When two or more gather….Keep me posted on what you decide!

      With so much love and pleasure,
      Mama Gena

    Mama Mia: 1. Unhappy that I don’t get to see you daily. 2. Desire to reconnect in some extraordinary, mutually sock-off-blowing manner, in accordance with divine timing and OUR timing. 3. I forget step three because I was thinking what a hot, sexy genius YOU are. 4. Going to organize my closet in my flat so I can continue to dress the part and the party. 5. Forgot step five since again, I was pondering how great you look. 6. Bragging about being happy, finally, after many painful years, in the body and being of a woman. Thanks MG. Your everlovin’ Li.

  • SG Radically Rachel March 13, 2010, 4:25 pm

    Hello SG community and Mama!

    I am so grateful for this blog entry on Re-Invention! I have been struggling with so much doubt about my current relationship, my current career calling, my new job. You name it, I’m doubting it.

    I brag that when I feel these doubts coming up and all the incessant thoughts that follow, I am stopping the thoughts and having my way with them! I tell those thoughts, “Hey, I am one hot, sexy genius for creating this roller coaster relationship. It is teaching me how to take charge of caring for myself instead of relying on someone else! It has lead me to sign up for Mastery!” Damn, I AM a genius!

    IT IS WORKING LIKE A CHARM. The doubt thoughts subside and I am put back in the driver’s seat!

    Thank you for your goddess wisdom, Mama!

    • Mama Gena March 16, 2010, 9:46 am

      SG Radically Rachel-
      Throw those doubts in the trunk, buckle your seat belts, put the top down and take this life of yours for one helluva ride!
      You deserve it!
      With so much love and pleasure,
      Mama Gena

  • Leann March 10, 2010, 8:20 pm

    Thank you so much for the blog! It keeps my Mama Gena fabulousness fires going, even on the hardest days. After breaking up with my first real love, it’s taken me a while to even want to start reinventing. But now’s the time! I’m training for a 5K, applying to tons of jobs, and getting a sexy new haircut. As always, thank you for pink, sassy, feathery, supportive, inspiration.

  • Osunyoyin March 10, 2010, 2:22 pm

    thanks mama gena! i’m in the middle of a MAJOR overhaul…existential flux i call it…and that mantra suggestion was RIGHT on time!

  • Frokostordning March 9, 2010, 8:47 pm

    Hm hm.. that’s very interessting but to be honest i have a hard time determining it… wonder what others have to say..

  • Kelly March 9, 2010, 2:17 pm

    Love this blog because you gave us a challenge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You invited us to take action!!!!!!!!

  • Theresa Lombardi March 5, 2010, 8:29 am

    As always…amazing. I love that you admit that so much comes from despair. I have lived that. If I hadn’t been through the hellfire and brimstone of the last five years, I wouldn’t have been motivated to be such a pleasure bunny now. And wow, am I juicy these days! Watch out world and thank you, thank you, thank you Mama Gena!

  • Sandra March 4, 2010, 10:37 pm

    I am doing just what you recommend in the video. I went after that spark, that twinkle, of interest and am now taking golf lessons [after years of thinking I wasn’t coordinated enough!], working on feeling and looking more youthful through better eating habits and exercise [there’s a reason 50 is the new 40!], and not being afraid to show my fun side inspite of myself! Thank you, MG, for these video blogs!

  • Staceyface March 4, 2010, 3:22 am

    I was skeptical. But this was fabulous and you are lovely. Thank you!

  • Judith F--cing Pepper March 3, 2010, 9:18 am

    Oh Regena – I am loving your Blog! I am so using Mastery Tools to ReinVent My Fine Self and I am going to share a post here that I posted to the 4 SGS I remain in constant communication! Big smacks to YOU and SWA! I desire to attend Fall 2010 MasterY! again!

    I am one hot sexy Genius! Be sure and listen to Regena’s blog it has merit!!!!!

    I am One Hot Sexy Genius!
    I have capital B Bragging Rights!
    I Brag I have an interview today as CEO of the Harrington Regional Medical Center at 11:00 AM and it is schedule for 2.5 hours! I Brag the Regional Dean, Dr. Mike Hooten, of Allied Health Services at the medical school where I work, is on the board of the HRMC and knew I had applied last fall – he called and offered the interview! I Brag he invited me to ride with him to the interview and I Brag I declined as I knew immediately I would take this morning to be at home and prepare for my interview. That is a big fucking deal for the Interviewer to invite the candidate to ride with him to the interview! I was so flattered! I brag Mike called yesterday and asked what I wanted for lunch – I ordered a chicken salad and said “I’ve never had lunch during an interview!” I brag I remembered I have had lunch and that was in Ashville NC in Dec 2007 when I was being interviewed there! OMG – I am excited! I brag after I post this Bragging email I will prepare with reviewing the mission and purpose of the organization and then develop a list of questions I have………….I am feeling very positive and excited about this interview.

    I Brag I had a hair cut appointment for Wed at 5:00 before Mike Hooten called me for the interview! I am one, hot, sexy Genius!

    I Brag I have perfect and elegant timing! This offer comes after I owned my Power to reinvent mySelf on December 30, 2009 – I bought the Black Stallion Lincoln MKZ on that day, I decided to join Weight Watchers on Jan 4, I posted desires to meet new men and women in 2010, to date new men, to sell my house and be in my dream home and to marry in 2010. Well Darlings, I brag these desires being fulfilled as of today:
    1. new car
    2. 7lbs lighter with only 3 more to go!
    3. Meeting new women and men! More in the next brag!
    4. My house is on the market and will sell to the rightful buyer from Divine Mind!

    I Brag reinvention is a Powerful tool and I am a hot, sexy Genius with a magnetic field of sucking in my Desires!

    I Brag I have a date tonight with Dr. Harvie Richie, an internist! I Brag this is a blind date – I have not seen the man and I am so excited I have no preconceived ideas of who I am meeting! I Brag this is the first NEW man I have met after posting my desire to “meet new men!” I Brag when Harvie asked me to dinner and told me where he wanted to take me, Miss P was not pleased with his choice and said “I desire to enjoy our meeting at Las Brisas and have a fabulous dinner!” Harvie melted and said “well of course!” I Brag I am asking for my desires to be fulfilled!

    I desire the interview today to be fun, respectful, joyful, and purposeful! I desire to answer easily and effortlessly and when I need to pause to collect my thoughts to do so with flair and invention!

    I desire to look beautiful in my black and white suit with the black tulip skirt and short jacket with a tiny black belt! I desire my hair to be perfect, to choose the purrfect jewelry – to be understated in fashion with that flair of joi de vivie!

    I desire to WOW the interviewers with my poise, grace and Power!

    I desire the salary to be $6figures + benefits! If this is the job for me, I desire to begin April 15, 2010 – to give my notice at my current job as of March 30 and to have a fabulous island vacation before I begin my new job!

    I desire to have fun tonight with Harvie – to laugh, flirt and be open to new possibilities!

    Oh Darlings I am so grateful for these many things!
    1. For the job I have with all the funny quirks and the young doctor I have worked with for 2 years! This job has provided the avenue to reinvent mySelf financially, re enter AMA professional community, and to relax after 5 years of unknown!
    2. I have developed such a good, friendly working relationship with Dr. Mike Hooten, he really, really likes me!

    3. Desiring to Reinvent MySelf and taking the steps and actions to do so! Buying the new car, losing the 7 lbs, putting my house on the market and desiring to meet new people – both men and women – these actions began the energy moving and now VaVoom – Swoosh – the energy is swirling! OMG! Just like Mama Gena describes in her Blog!

    4. To realize I am the purrfect AGE! “I am who I am” Remember that song from Mastery! Oh, “I am who I am” and damn proud of it!

    5. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, I am excited for me and for YOU!

    So, Shall my desires be fulfilled or by something more than I can imagine!

    More will be revealed and I will remain Curious!

    JFP – Goddess of Self ReinVention!

    • Mama Gena March 4, 2010, 4:36 pm

      @Judith F–ckng Pepper- Hello you hot sexy thing! I’m on the floor with your brags honey- can’t wait to hear more about the date with the internist. And hey- don’t wait til Fall 2010 cause there ain’t one! Only one Mastery this year- and it kicks off in just 17 days! Not to mention- it’s just not right to make me wait ’til 2011!

  • margi March 3, 2010, 2:24 am

    wonderful wonderful reminders – i love this format!!!!!! love it thank you so much…and so timely…how did you know?

  • Luscious Lerga ;) March 3, 2010, 1:53 am

    Hi Mama!!!!
    Sg sandra here from my bed in Los Angeles. I love this blog access and wanted to thank you for not only the steps but you said to the effect of “sharing of oneself enthusiastically, proudly speak your genius” not verbatim but in that vein and thaaaannnk you.
    i just left a conversation with 3 men, yes i run in a pack wink wink.
    But seriously i find it mind boggling how some folks can’t shut the f*$# up and vomit their repetitive boast all over your pretty dress!!!! But i did keep dialoguing and holding my own but i was warring rather than sharing from my “shiny” place. I forgot to express myself from my place of self love, self jubilance. i forgot to be mesmerized by my own genius! Thank you for reminding!!!!
    Onward as a restored goddess 🙂
    Big Hug from L.A
    love to the palace

    • Mama Gena March 4, 2010, 4:37 pm

      @Luscious Lerga- ahhhh…there’s my girl! Restored Goddess is right…welcome home! hugs right back to you!

  • SG Rita March 2, 2010, 10:20 pm

    Thank you for this! I was a hot sexy genius for BEING at Reinvention night! And it was AWESOME! Never can get enough of yo Mama! What was the line you used-“throw your saddle on . . . .” I am so sorry I did not write it down that evening, but I was taking it all in. The women, the stories, your hot pink dress! I am grateful every day for you, and what you remind woman :our power is in our pleasure. Desire lists and gratitude all around! Tall hugs, SG Rita

  • Janine March 2, 2010, 8:04 pm

    Thank you for sharing your bold wisdom with the world. xo

  • White Chocolate March 2, 2010, 5:50 pm

    I flippin’ love this so MUCH! I make my husband use
    the hot sexy genius tool when we’re driving in the car. For instance I am one Hot, Sexy, Genius man for constantly feeling up my wife while she does the dishes. He’s really goin’ with it. Sometimes I hear him muttering it around the house when he’s not doing things the way I would do it. I must say that just the little amount of time I’ve spent in the Mama Gena classes has changed my relationship with my man soooo much! We’ve been married 23 years and it just keeps getting better! Each time I spend time around Mama, I come home with 1 more tool, 1 more piece of info that creates change. I’m inspired to leave you all with a little spur of the moment rap about the power of bringing women together.
    Let’s spin a web of Sisterhood
    Golden strands of love and good
    Wrapped like a hug around planet Mama Earth
    It’s a motherF%@kin’ matriarchal re-birth!
    Big Love, SG White Chocolate

      SG Carol- and all you other Goddesses from far and wide-
      I’m so glad this is adding even more juice to your days! It just thrills me to know that I am touching you all the way in South Africa. I might just have to go lie down!

  • Oceana March 2, 2010, 11:35 am

    I LOVE your video blogs! Fabulous way to stay connected! Thank you for doing them…you continue to inspire us with these mini refresher spritz blogs of MGSWA wisdom!
    Right now, I’m reinventing myself at 50…which will happen in May!!! I am so excited to recreate myself as better than ever, more fit than ever, wiser than I’ve ever been, and more successful in so many ways! I’m embarking on travelling with my work and selling a line of products that I haven’t offered before on my website.
    Also, I’m recreating my marriage into the most sizzlingly sexy, hott partnership EVER. We’re practicing deep intimacy skills and have so many fun adventures lined up!!!
    Thank you, MG, for being so much fun and for bringing empowerment to so many! Love you!!!

  • Anne Christner March 2, 2010, 11:09 am

    These video blogs are genius ~ thank you!! I LOVE your books and email updates, and now this! Yay! My thing for 2010 is to say YES to anything that lights me up & feels exciting with NO analyzing it. So far, I grabbed my daughter & drove down to Venice to take Shiva Rea’s Mojo Valentine’s Day yoga class (so FUN with live music, dancing & raw cocao at the end!), am going to Costa Rica for a week in April, and signed up for yoga teacher training in Bali for May!! Hmmm… I think I have the bragging thing down! 🙂
    I so appreciate this boost because fear does visit, and this really helps keep me moving forward to create a life that turns me on!
    PS The emails with the SG sharing in pink letters are so inspiring! I printed out one abour a SG selling her loft some time ago, and had it front & center when I sold my house recently. Thanks for all you do!

    • Mama Gena March 2, 2010, 3:01 pm

      SG Anne, you ARE one hot Sexy Genius! Here’s to your year of saying YES! GORGEOUS!
      So, what else are you desiring oh HOT one?

      With so much love and pleasure,
      Mama Gena

  • Leah March 2, 2010, 11:08 am

    I can always tell when I meet someone who has been in your program. They are on fire with their own lusciousness.
    It is cool to get to see you in the video. Seeing your energy really helps get your points across.

It’s a little scary a lot of mornings, but here I am, showing up. I’m working on bringing my sexy genius back. And thank you for being there. Love and the best of everything fantastic, SG Lisa Ann

    • Mama Gena March 2, 2010, 3:05 pm

  • Zan Packard - The Adventurous Introvert March 2, 2010, 9:58 am

    Mama Gena, this new format is GENIUS…you are so inspiring and I find myself asking that all important question “What would Mama Gena do?” as I begin to shift from everyday living to seeing the adventure everywhere. Thank you for your grand inspiration.

  • Eliza Duncan March 2, 2010, 9:56 am

    Mama Thank you so much for this inspiration for me down South. It truly comes at the perfect time on the perfect day. You continue to inspire me, push me and remind me to go for those desires that are still buried deep inside and just screaming to get out.
    Love SG Eliza

  • Alma McKinley March 2, 2010, 9:40 am

    Thanks for this Mama, it’s nice to have that list at our disposal. Muah!

    So good for those of us who live on the other side of the pond to have this up to date interaction with you, seeing you and hearing you, oh this has been such a joy. I turned 50 in November and am reinventing the way I look, the way I want to work and the way I want to be successful.
    Luv ya Mama! xx
