Welcome to the final installment of our 8-week summer series, The Womanly Arts Unplugged, in honor of our upcoming course, Virtual Pleasure Boot Camp! This week, Satya, a Mastery Grad from New York City, joins us to teach about the Womanly Art of Inviting Abundance!
Satya, Age 31 – Fashion Entrepreneur & Creative Director
This has single handedly been the hardest thing for me to grasp and practice. For a long time, I actually thought I was practicing it. I was raised in a progressive spiritual thinking family, and my Dad taught us to visualize as kids. My understanding was to get what you desired, you just need to see it, smell it exactly as you want it…then it will show up as planned.
The limitation with this approach to Abundance insinuates that I have 100% control and I can get anything I want, as long as I know exactly what it is and go after it. I had many successes thanks to this strategy.
At Mama Gena’s, when a woman states a desire, the response is, “And so it shall be, or something even better.”
As I see it, The Art of Inviting Abundance lies in the “or something even better”. For me, the “even better” has been about letting go, listening and receiving. This goes for every area of my life, not just money.
I’ve learned that The Art of Inviting Abundance is actually about allowing the divine to take the lead. Practicing this Art allows me to experience all that comes to me with love, gratitude, and of course (in my case) a PARTY HAT.
I came to the School of Womanly Arts feeling just fine (thank you very much), but deep down knowing there could be so much MORE. I actually didn’t sign up because I felt I needed to change my life. I came in skeptical, ready to network, and learn a few tricks. I thought I would meet some great gals who’d love what I do (hats & hosiery).
Feathers boas? No thank you. That’s for that girl over there… Anger, resentment? me? No. Thank you. Desires? Yes but I’m really focused on being grateful for what I have, so thank you but I’m okay and perfectly happy where I am. And Men? Well I already have a great guy, and I adore men, thanks!
The things that have shifted since I began the program have rocked me to my core. Little did I know my studies at SWA would shake up my foundation so profoundly, and bring me things that I didn’t even know I desired.
