Thank you for joining us at Shakti Stories!
Shakti Stories is a mission to Empower Feminine Bliss for all people to flower and thrive.
For centuries, womxn have been twisting and contorting themselves in various ways to fit into the norms & expectations of the world.
Womxn are now waking up to the ways that they’ve been limiting their self-expression or hiding aspects of their whole truth.
Expressing more of our essence is not just about wearing long dresses or dancing ecstatically in Bali. It’s about becoming aware of the true healing potential that we have in the female body we reside in.
Today’s greatest threat to womxn’s freedom is what Marion Woodman called the “addiction to perfection”. This “never good enough” mentality means that no matter how much we do, it is never enough.
Inspired by the greats in the field of Feminine Psychology such as Marion Woodman, and my teachers Ana Mozol, Jalaja Bonheim, Leslie Ellis and Toko-pa, I have created this podcast with the hopes of broadening our understanding of feminine psychology and growing together in our embodiment of purpose, passion and pleasure.
I invite you to always use your own intuitive felt-sense with any idea offered to you and run it through your own body to decide whether a certain practice is of value for you at any given time. This podcast is not for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. It's for informational purposes and is not a substitute for professional medical or mental health advice, examination, diagnosis, or treatment.
What if You're Not in the Mood for Sex (and much more)
In this Shakti Story I ask Blaire Lindsay, the founder of the Embodied Feminine Power Coaching certification, how she defines The Feminine. Blaire is a Feminine embodiment coach who helps women go from doubting themselves to feeling confident and sexy. In her online programs and in-person trainings, Blaire draws from a background in classical and neo-Tantra, yoga, dance and trauma resolution to help women access full-body presence and inner to outer radiance.
In this episode of Shakti Stories we are talking about:
~ What is "The Feminine"?
~ Why the focusing on pleasure matters now more than ever!
~ Healing trauma through finding our inner resources and leaning into what feels good.
~ What if you aren’t in the mood for sex?
~ How boundaries have been a teacher for Blaire.
Blaire says “forget everything you think you know about The Feminine”. But what does The Feminine means to her? She offers her definition (2:00).
She speaks about how pleasure is the medicine for patriarchal wounds (19:30).
Trauma from the Somatic Experiencing perspective - finding our inner strength, power and resilience (24:00).
Not feeling sexual? Blaire describes how to process that by being with what’s present with what you need and also remembering that turn on is medicine (37:30).
The importance of boundaries and taking care of our energetic hygiene in order to prevent depression and collapse (42:00).
