Sensuality is power.
Not domination. Not force.
It is something different. It is both more practical and more numinous.
Yesterday, I was traveling seven hours with my daughter, to have a weekend visit with my college chums on Cape Cod. The day before, I had packed up our beach house and moved us back to the city, after a week of hosting guests, and preparing for all the back-to-school activities at The School of Womanly Arts.
Maggie and I were exhausted. And I knew the only way to get through the day of planes and trains and automobiles would be to connect with my eternal power source—my sensuality.
I put on these ankle boots that make me feel hot. Tight white pants that make my legs looong. A scarf I got in Paris, and a shrunken jean jacket. The slightly tight clothes made me super aware of my body. I walked differently, knowing I was hot. And the focus of the day completely changed—it was not about the trains and planes and automobiles, it was about the pure privilege of being me (and Maggie being Maggie) and enjoying the challenging, ever changing experiences, as we travelled through New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.
We ended up having a great day. Laughing a lot. Flirting with everyone, and getting offered a ride on a motorcycle when we reached Cape Cod (which we did not accept—too dangerous… )
This is something that I want for all women.
Each of us has the propensity and the ability to connect to a deep, interior strength in pure service to ourselves. That is the gift of 8,000 nerve endings. The gift of being a woman.
Most women do not have any idea how to find that switch and keep it on.
The connection to our core fire is often tattered and torn.
We all have had such varied and difficult relationships with our sensuality. Abuse. Violence. Ignorance. Lack of education. No validation. Poor role models.
In today’s video, you are going to meet 3 women who have completely turned around their lives, by turning around their relationship to their sensuality. You will see what happens to a woman when her core power is used for her, rather than against her. The elixir of sensuality powers not only the woman, but her entire world.
It is our 4th and final video of this summer’s series, and we’ve saved the best for last.
