When you take on the impossible

Darling,

I am so in it.
So deep.
And I want to take you inside.

Every thought I have, every step I take is in pure service to the event we are creating this weekend, called The Womanly Arts Experience. I am excited, nervous, and deeply, deeply engaged.

For me, right now, it’s all about what to wear, practicing the best songs for the entrances, polishing the perfect exercises, reviewing the pacing, and finalizing the most incredible venue for the party Saturday night.
It is the first time that the school has ever produced an event for 880 women, and we are sold out, with a huge waiting list.

But if we go back a few months, when I got this idea into my head, we had literally no idea that this would happen. We were going to be happy if 500 women came. Ecstatic if we got 600. Over the moon if 700 showed up. 880 wasn’t even a thought at the time.

But something happens when a woman engages. Truly engages. Heart mind body soul, engages. What she stands for on the inner, begins to shift the outer.

When you take on the impossible, the really big energies line up so that you attract the outrageous. (Click to tweet!)

Regena WompThe power of her desire sends an invisible hook out into the universe, which starts to draw in not only her greatest heart’s desire, but so much more besides.

Not only have we filled the house for the Womanly Arts Experience, but the Daily News came by and did a whole-page feature on me and the School, which generated so much traffic that our website kept toppling down all day. Next, the London Times came and did an interview with me. Talk about the power of attraction!! And the event has not even happened yet.

And this is what I will be teaching women, this weekend.
That each of us has the power to create anything we desire, when we know what we want, and go for it, dialed in to our deepest passion – for the pure raw fun of it.
The miraculous is only a risk away. (Click to tweet!)
Yup, you heard me.
Only a risk away.

What miraculous are you going to risk, for yourself, today?
Please share with me in the comments, below.
I want to know what your greatest passions are, and your greatest fears.
They can hold hands as we jump off the cliff, together. :-)

In so much love and pleasure,

I have a big presentation at work today, to try to convince our company owner to let us enter a new line of business, one that could put our company and all of our employees in a really, really good position. I’m envisioning the “yes” from the owner, and then our strategy for going out and kicking major ass in the industry! I want it so bad. I’m going to present the facts, then muster up as much passion as I have and ask for it. Your post came to me today to show me that when I want something this much, there is no way it won’t happen. Thank you, Mama Gena!

I just love reading your posts. They make me feel like flying high and a million bucks – realizing that YES! I CAN have my hearts desires. They also help me tap into that inner goddess and sexy & beautiful liveliness…wanting to bring her out fully in everyday life, all the time. Thank you for all you do! I cannot wait until this weekend to learn so much more!

MG, thank you for posting this incredible reminder of our power – it is so hard to believe sometimes, and so easy to forget!! As you know, I am in an extended push to overturn a legal ruling against my man that would have had him locked up for something he did not do – he should have been sentenced last August, yet he is still with me now and I KEEP SHOWING UP FOR HIM and for US, Keep putting my desire for justice out there, keep working the tools, conjuring money to pay the lawyer, and we are hopeful that this whole thing will be reversed and true justice served, something few people ever thought would be possible!!

I couldn’t have done it without the support of you and this community, trust and faith in my divine power, and knowing that I am right and I need to be fueled by pleasure, desire, and community. THANK YOU and I cannot wait to witness the amazing chain of events that will be unleashed in the world as a result of this amazing weekend!!!

What great mail, I really want to walk together with you wonderful women, and follow my desire and honor my talent. I am a singer, working on my first album with great great people; very skilled and very warm and very much in integrity. Just what I wanted. I got what I wanted. I wanted the best, the warm, with integrity. So the waiting and the saying of no to some other people asking has been so much worth it. I got what I wanted. I felt I deserved it. I got it.

I have been asked the last days several times, into my “inner” ear: What do you want? Say it; what you want. What do you choose? I´ve written it down, I´ve said it out loud, named it. And then I do what I´m told to do. Yes, I feel nervous, yes I feel a lot of things, yes I have to jump and sometimes I wait before I jump, but this morning I gave my life to the arts and to the love to and from people. The love from heart to heart in every form and the love of sound and the love of the stage and the love that I feel when I´m up there. THAT`S my life. That is my choice. That is who I am. I feel strength in my whole body when I write this; “”That is who I am”. Because it´s true. I have always known from my first time on stage; this is my second home. I love the stage, I love to share the sound. I love to pour it out and all the exciting work and preperations beforehand. I LOVE IT. I want to open my heart with you and celebrate life; the life we may choose. I need you, beloved sisters. I need your honesty, MamaGena. I love you back! Strength and love from Norway <3

My desire to rise above my circumstances is so large that there is no way I will back down. I have been provided with amazing opportunities to know myself better, heal, build my voice, and unleash a business that will provide so much value to my diabetic friends, known and unknown. I would not have been brought this far only to fall short. I see how everything has taken on perfectly feminine timing, one opportunity building on the next.
I desire to conjure the funds to pay for the resources to grow myself and my business and to truly show up full out in the world. I trust and desire that every door will open for me to inspire women in my local area get fit so I can inspire diabetics all over the world. I trust and desire that I will be in Mama Gena’s presence again on my birthday weekend in March and be able to brag about the progress of my life, vision, and calling in the world.

Muah!

I’m so deeply in it as well, MG. I know exactly what you’re talking about. As you know, I’m going back into practice, here in London, from scratch. It’s right there, my dream practice, and it’s happening. There’s so much buzz all around me, it’s my desires hooking everyone and the whole universe around me bringing it all to me. I love it! My desires are so clear and everything in my being is making it happen. I’ve got people coming to my new office and more people are asking to come to me to get adjusted. It’s awesome.

Thanks for this brilliant post!

Mama Gena you are the miracle that is happening to me now. I came to NY from London 3 weeks ago with the intention for a miracle to happen but that particular miracle didnt work out the way I wanted it to. I kept listening within and the voice said “stay”. My flight was booked for the 31st January.
I have always wanted to come to do class with you, not on the virtual but in the room with your energy present and all the other SG’s too. So when I got the call on Friday saying I had the chance to come after being on the waiting list, I jumped for joy. I took the risk and am changing my ticket home. I have no idea when to put the return date in as I have a list of miracles I want to happen before I go back and after this weekend I have a feeling my world may just have changed…
I am so excited to be there
Thank you Mama Gena and thank you Universe for the miracle of taking me on an adventure to my new life…

MG, you ARE so inspiring and though I won’t be with you in NYC this time, my good friend Deborah is making her way from Seattle to share in the juiciness of the event. My good, good wishes are there for all the goddesses!

My heart’s desire and deep longing is to step more fully, more boldly into my work as a poet and speaker. I’ve built a successful training and development company that now has wings, and I need help to summon the courage to do what’s mine to do. I know in my heart that my work and art as a poet is deeply needed, that stillness, presence, noticing and connection can heal and strengthen people, families, businesses and communities. I KNOW this, and yet I need to silence those voices ( mostly inside) that choosing a life of the artist is choosing struggle and scarcity.

Thank you for the example that you and all the SGs provide. We all get to stand on your shoulders!

Love and blessings,
Libby

Thank you Mama Gena, and Sister Goddesses.
Today, with your motivation, I am marching through my to-do list. I’m in the process of starting my own business which supports women, and men, but mostly women in the kitchen. I want to encourage more people to enjoy the many benefits of cooking a meal with love at home. As a personal chef I’ve come up with a system to make your time in the kitchen fun and productive. It’s taking a lot of self discipline to keep focused, as I’m used to going off to work and completing tasks on “auto pilot”. In order to achieve what feels impossible today, requires TRUST AND FAITH IN MY DIVINE POWER. That’s my mantra for the day. I’m determined to make it work. Thanks again to all of you beautiful women. Have a great weekend! Send that powerful goddess energy out into the world.

Mama Gena, first, I want to humbly & great-FULLy thank you for the enormous generosity you are blessing upon over 880 Women, and truly, with the profound ripple effect of what we each will go forth & become, for taking an enormous RISK yourself to Change the World!
I have never been to your events yet & AM super excited to explore deep within my desires, and look directly into the face of whatever “stuckness” lies in the way of living passionately! What am I willing to risk, you ask? I am willing to risk failure, ridicule, looking like a fool, greater fortunes, job opportunities, status quo….in order to start a non-profit that opens the doorway to greater unity and peace. I know in my heart that this is right, and many, countless doors will open to me as a result. The only thing in the way is every miniscule excuse, fear, procrastination, hesitation to choose or trust in myself, in the power of God. But I am leaving ALL that behind. I am packing a huge dose of courage & playfulness in my bags. I am ready to jump off the cliff, dive into trust, become crystal clear about who I AM and what I AM doing.
I want to blow the lid off of feeling pleasure in pursuing my dreams….for me! And what a glorious delicious gift that will then be to my kids, my family, my husband, my community…OUR World! BRING IT ON! I AM Ready!!!!
THANK YOU Mama G! Can’t wait to meet you & hundreds of Sister Goddesses!
Diane

Regena, my body was tingling from this post…YES! It is happening. And I can’t wait for this major event this weekend. Like Miami, you will rock the house! And here is my big desire…I have done a series of keynote speeches on women living their dreams. Then I wrote/produced/performed my solo comedy, Hot Mama Mahatma, on women finding their voice and their sensuality. Now there is my show, The Goddess Revue, playing again in NYC at the Metropolitan Room on March 9th! But here is the biggest of them all. I have desired to get this message out to the world in a BIG way, into entertainment and media. Well, this summer, I will be doing a webinar for Hay House, and they are excited! So am I…and nervous as hell. But I keep walking through the fear…taking the RISK…and it just keeps getting better!!! So keep modeling for us, Mama, just watching you walk this sets us all up to step out. Go REGENA!!!

My deepest desire is to be a successful voiceover artist; highly sought after. Booked up. Can’t take another booking because I’m booked. The one with the ‘voice’ that draws in people to the companies i’m representing in unprecedented fashion. Running right beneath that is a desire to go back to school and study forensic psychology.

AND I want to be free and satisfied in Love and in Relationship, at the same time, and have that joy and satisfaction fuel me as I do this work of transformation. I want the rest of my life to be lived from a place of Pleasure, Freedom, and Connection — to my own Heart and to
Others, and to have the freedom to express my love fully and reciprocally. I want to continue to learn and grow, and to enjoy financial and relationship abundance so I can experience the riches and pleasures of this life fully, and live with balance, harmony, ease, joy, pleasure, and satisfaction, while I create transformation and build beauty and offer rich and satisfying experience to others. I want to break down barriers between people, and be a force for healing.

Everything about my life, except my work, changed 4 years ago. I chose to leave my 20 yr marriage, saw my daughter graduate HS and head off to Spain for 10 months, sold the house we had worked so hard to renovate, rehomed our beloved pets, and retired from teaching yoga. 8 months ago, I envisioned working for myself, wrote down my intention, put the Universe on notice, and tucked that under my pillow. 5 months ago, I was laid off from my , job with 4 months severence pay. 3 months ago I opened my private practice, and met my expenses in the 1st month, then my revenue tripled in my second month (Dec.), and increased by an additional 25% in my 3rd month. I have decided to do what I love, seeing the kind of clients I love to work with, and charge what I’m worth. In addition I plan to offer mindfulness coaching for golfers, stressing the importance of mental fitness. I’ve never been more scared, more juiced, or more full of gratitude for this kick in the pants suddenly supplied by our benevolent universe. This is the “work” that does not feel like work. It just flows and delights me at every turn.
I am making friends with the fear and self-doubt, and moving forward. I enjoy every part of this scary process: envisioning, marketing, seeing clients, writing and researching. It is quite an awakening. Thank you for inviting us to share, and for your beautiful example of pleasure-centered leadership. Mahalo nui.

From a personal experience, you might want to think about it this way, “I am the only person that I need to answer to” then remove all emotions from the equation. Once I started thinking that way, justification was a lot easier because I had already accepted myself and my decisions.

SG Debra AKA NILE January 29, 2014 at 8:11 am

It has been 15 years since I first went to a MG intro but 14 years later I realized it is what had been missing from my life the whole time. After VPBC and the Miami weekend I knew I was on a path that would take me closer to being the Goddess I was born to be.
In Miami I was infatuated with a man I had recently met yet afraid to be naked as I had a breast cancer diagnosis and my breasts had been altered. Shortly after the new year I reconnected with this man and we quickly became lovers…the first time in over 12 years since my wicked divorce. Sex was amazing and while I am still enamored, I am not clear that he is worthy of my passion and devotion. As he talks about his dad and how he is with his kids, it is clear that his business is his first love. He is modeling his dad and I am not clear he has the first clue about how to really be with a woman.
I am so looking forward to this weekend and MASTERY 2014 because I know I will learn to unravel what I desire and then how to create it. Lucky man if I choose to teach him what I will learn
You have created an unparalleled community Mama Gena. I am so deeply grateful that I have finally found my sisters in this life. I love you all..each and every one of you

About four years ago, I became a dancer at age 47. After a lifetime of “there’s no time; there’s no money” messages from others and some doubts within, the dream deferred came true when I started ballroom dance lessons. I got some traction, some momentum and trained my a** off! With teachers and on my own. I totally transformed my body and my spirit burst through. I never felt more myself. During this cocoon shedding, I lost my 20+ years marriage to a man with an anxiety disorder and a deep-rooted compulsion to act out and lie about it when upset. Oh, I did ask for support and understanding, I did stand up for myself, but he was unwilling to cope with change in a positive way. The end of that relationship freed me from the little box I had put myself in to help him feel safe. I completed my training to teach ballroom, and I danced and danced and competed in pro-am events all over the country. I got certified as a personal trainer, thinking it would help support this, yes, expensive habit. So far, no, it doesn’t. And a series of no’s from loved ones and others has me reeling and trying to figure out how to stay a dancer, to keep it at the center of my time and energy. I’ve been drifting back and forth for about six months now, dancing less and less. Financial fears loom very large. My boyfriend has surprised me by strongly implying I’ve screwed this up big time and need to downsize my expectations. I need a miracle. My usual optimism hasn’t rallied. My focus is wrecked. I put my need for a dance partner and for students out there, but I guess the missing ingredient is belief. Not just, “Please give me this, oh god, I’m in trouble, I’m afraid and alone with this.” Rather the attitude should be, “I will have this and soon and here’s how it will look and feel and here’s how I’ll be grateful and pay it forward.” Starting today, I BELIEVE. To-do: Vision board, scheduling practices, pushing away distractions, asking my teacher for specific help finding a dance partner, not just general advice. To-be: the Chita Rivera of ballroom! (Note to non-dancers, Ms. Rivera, the original Anita in “West Side Story” and star of a host of productions, was still on Broadway dancing up a storm in her 70s.)

You inspired me to dream bigger and I found my voice to step up and start my blog and weekly meetings, I launched my first test program and planning the proper launch on March 2014. You made me feel proud of what I do, as I was shamed and shy before. I did small steps and saw the results. I love them and I want more. I want a successfully launch of 50-100 people.

Regena, you’ve gone viral!!!
I can’t wait to be in that room you’ve conjured ~ it’s been too too long since I’ve felt the Juice that is an SWA event & this one is clearly going to be the juiciest SWA event yet! I’m with Karen, my whole body is tingling with the energy you are summoning from “the greatest untapped resource on the planet!” This is gonna be HUGE!

I was checking train tickect prices online daily since last week to see if the prices would go down in my commute from DC to NYC but they did not. So, I decided to go into the train station to speak with someone with the intention of flirting my way to a cheaper tickect price. I was totally successful…not only were the prices cheaper than expected but I was able to find a closer train station to my house, cheaper overnight parking and had a cute guy that offer me a wealth of safety information while in NYC.

I took the time today to post (first timer) and I also read/ replied to other posts. There are some great women out there with extraordinary experiences. If this is any indication of how this weekend in NYC will be, I am super excited to meet be apart of it and to meet everyone!!!

Regena,
I love the leaping off the cliff together. You are so fun. I want to leap off the cliff with you for horses! I want to have a top notch dressage horse and rescue mustangs–even turn them into competition horses. I want a state of the art efficient house with barns and a cool place to entertain goddesses and other cool friends, In it I want an indoor/outdoor styling center. I want a husband I respect and with whom I have a hot sex life. I’d like a new relationship to money and time to play music and write.

Also, I’m bringing three new women to you. I’m finally creating community for myself here in the North Country.
Thank you so much.
Kate

Dearest Mama Gena! 880?! Wow. Congratulations! I’m thrilled for you and them! I believe my spring mastery just two years ago was 200+ so that is one helluva increase! I’m so excited for you and for all those future Sister Goddesses. (I can actually still remember doing my first class w/ you in your UWS living room!)

What is the impossible that I’m taking on? Encouraging more consciousness on Wall Street! How’s that for big?!

For three years I’ve been at work on a book that will feature interviews with 50 conscious capitalists on Wall Street. This book will share how they built their fortunes without compromising their integrity. I thought it was time that we began a dialogue about what we want FOR and FROM Wall Street instead of what we did not.

And as you said, “When you take on the impossible, the really big energies line up so that you attract the outrageous.” Would you like to know what I attracted in the midst of this project? A year worth of house sitting in Hawaii so that I could really focus on finishing it! And that’s where I am right now! In Hawaii! Me, little Miss NYC herself is sitting here in paradise finishing this opus of a book.

It’s my intention that this book not only becomes a NY Time’s Bestseller (and that Jon Stewart interviews me!) but that it will truly encourage more conscious capitalism on Wall Street and beyond.

Hopefully Mama, you’ll agree I’m playing big enough. :) Love & miss you, Kim

I’m a life coach and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how you get women to tap into their desires, what is true for them, what lights them up, what makes them happy! There is so much of what you do that I see in my coaching practice as well. Women come to me wanting to make a change in their life, to be bold, audacious, and follow their dreams; write that book, find their man, travel, etc. One of the first things I work with them on is how to be their Essence, their best self, and you bring this out with so many of the practices you do. It’s really inspiring to see another way of living one’s best life. :)

Hello Mama Gena, wow what an amazing achievement …. Totally love your work. I’ve done lots of coaching myself here in Europe…. And have discovered my passions and desires again…. Often we have lost touch with them over the years…. It’s about what lights you up! So I now teach women through sensual dance classes/ workshops how to reconnect to their femininity and coach them to live life to the full and empower them to follow their dreams. It’s neo-Burlesque style and the women LOVE it. It strips away their shyness of their bodies and makes them fall in love with themselves…. A gift for me to see happy women walk out of the door again. Falling my passion took courageous steps but it’s well worth it…. I JUMPED and have been following my path for several years now. Have my own business and FB page called Fabulously Feminine and I love inspiring women too. Let’s rock the world all together and spread more LOVE, HAPPINESS, LIFE & PEACE so our planet becomes an even more beautiful place to live on.

Hello Lusciously Lovely, Wildly Wonderful, Sister Goddesses!
WHAT A RIDE!
Two years ago, March 2012, I heard Mama Gena speak as part of my life coaching course with Crystal Andrus’ S.W.A.T. Institute (Simply Women Accredited Training). Crystal had chosen Mama Gena as “Woman Of The Year” for 2012. At that time I knew that one day I would meet Mama Gena and take one, some, or all of her courses, so I could tap into all she spoke of during that call.
And I was one of the 880 women who rocked the Skirball Centre this past weekend. I had stepped into the magic of Mama Gena’s message of living life from embodied pleasure, saying YES!
To top it all off I decorated my entry ballot with hearts and THANK YOU’S, as every cell in my being resonated and tingled with the deep joy and pleasure of having already won for having spent this weekend surrounded with love from so many Sister Goddesses.
And then I WON, AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am the TURN ON TOURNAMENT WINNER!!!

The certificate reads:
The WOMANLY ARTS EXPERIENCE
TURN ON TOURNAMENT WINNER!!!
“A woman turned on is a woman in her highest power.”
This certificate entitles me to one free seat in Mastery 2014!

THANK YOU MAMA GENA!
THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOUR AMAZING WOMANLY ARTS STAFF! EACH OF YOU EXUDE ENTHUSIASM AND LOVE.
THANK YOU TO EVERY WOMAN WHO ATTENDED!
THANK YOU TO EVERY WOMAN ON THE PLANET FOR OUR COLLECTIVE LIFE ENHANCING LOVING CONNECTION!

WOW! What a ride, and it’s only just begun.
Cheers!
Lucy Beiler

I’ve been excited about doing film school next year for a while and have told everyone this and gotten my family really excited about it (and they hate when I change my mind about anything) so now I’ve just realized, and with such emotion that I want to scream or cry or laugh or all of those things, that I have wanted to be a burlesque dancer, cabaret singer/dancer or circus performer with a sensual side (have you seen Cirque Du Soleil’s “Zumanity”?) for close to four years now. It is always made me feel so mysterious, divine, electric… I don’t know what to do or say now. Could I both attend film school and learn to to do burlesque/circus/cabaret? I’m scared out of my wits about this and I don’t know why. Since I’ve begun changing my life with these tools you give us, Mama, I have been able to identify desires and even when they are scary or risky go out and try for them. But this scares me because I don’t even know if it’s a really good desire, like will anything good come out of it? Isn’t it kind of stupid or frivolous? I can’t believe I’m saying that about a desire but I can just hear people saying that to me. What should I do? I feel like I’m already close to the edge of cliff, or can at least see it from here. Usually with desires I’m scared about doing what it takes to get it, or ending up not getting it, but with this I’m scared of getting it. What if it doesn’t make me happy or what if it messes up my life?? What if my life is totally different than I ever imagined it would be? Oh my goddess…
