Some women walk into a room and just instantly grab your attention. They aren’t necessarily the most beautiful, well-dressed, smartest or well-known in the room, and yet somehow both women and men gravitate to her.
This magnetic energy, is the presence of a woman who has embodied her inner goddess. She has nothing to prove, not needing to compete with other women in the room, instead celebrating them as her fellow sisters. She isn’t concerned with how others may be judging her, how much cleavage she is showing or not showing for she knows that her true power lies not in her external appearance, or how she may be perceived, but in her deep understanding and acceptance of who she really is.
She has learnt that the most powerful and beautiful thing about her is not the clothes or make-up she wears, the position she holds in society, nor the words that come out of her mouth, but in the inner light she radiates.
When a woman finds and connects with this part of herself, forgives the disowned parts of her being sheds the masks of protection she has worn and allows herself to be completely authentic in her self-expression of all she is as a woman, she simply becomes a beacon of light.
And it is in her ownership of her own goddess light, she gives permission for others to shine their own light also. This is the way of the goddess - she is not just in some of us, she is in all of us and you can start invoking her today starting with these quick tips to tune into your inner feminine power, turn on your goddess light and amplify your womanly radiance for success and fulfilment at work, in relationships and in life.
Goddess Tip 1 - Bring more playfulness into life
In today’s modern society it’s easy to get bogged down in the masculine energy of ‘doing.’ To do lists, productivity, problem solving, outcome driven agendas. Whilst all necessary parts of who we are, we are only meant to be in this state of ‘doing’ some of the time, not most of the time – which in today’s world of economy and industry in not often the case!
For most women our natural state of being and where we are in our element, lies in invoking our joy. Usually this is through cultivating things like co-operation, collaboration, compassion, intuition, creativity, playfulness, movement, feeling and healing. When we spend too much time in ‘doing’ we become burnt out, overwhelmed and depleted of our life force energy.
Conversely when a woman is empowered through alignment with her natural feminine qualities she becomes exactly what the universe intended her to be: sexy, sensual, articulate, intuitive, joyful, radiant and magnetically attractive.
With all the responsibilities we have in life, it’s incredibly important to make time to let more playfulness in. If you’re feeling depressed, anxious or stressed ask yourself ‘When was the time I played? When was the last time I danced? Sang in the shower? Laughed out loud for no apparent reason? Rolled around on the ground with my kids? Had a food fight?’ Life’s way too important to be taken seriously all the time, let your inner child out once in a while.
Goddess Tip 2 - Be authentically YOU
’Always be yourself – unless you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn’ - Peter S. Beagle
You are born unique. That’s just how it is. You were not born to be anyone else and it is not possible to be anybody else. YOU WILL NEVER BE ANYONE ELSE. Of course you may recognise a quality in someone else you find admirable, or inspirational. But guess what? It is impossible to perceive something in another that is not already within you anyway.
Comparing yourself to anyone else is ABSOLUTELY pointless, you are never, ever, ever going to be anyone but you, so why try? (Unless you can be a unicorn of course!) I’m not going to get on a soap box here for too long, but a lot of the reason why we compare ourselves to others is because of mass media portraying an idea of what is acceptable, desirable, beautiful and important. There’s an industry built around trying to make you feel like you can’t measure up, making you feel inadequate for just being you, and it’s all B.S.
Always be the best version of YOU. You might have heard it before, but it REALLY is not about your looks, smarts, achievements, how well you can hold a conversation, or how good in bed you are. There is nothing sexier, more alluring, engaging or enchanting than a woman who is totally authentically comfortable in her own skin. It’s in the way she moves, holds herself, laughs, how she connects with people from a place of power and warmth at the same time.
Goddess Tip 3 - Express yourself creatively
Whether you think of yourself as creative or not, as women we are the master creators – we are specifically designed to bring new life into the world and breathe life into the birth of new things. Being creative does not mean you have to be an artist. Creativity is pure life force energy. Everything in life stems from creation, whether creating a meal, a garden, a spreadsheet or a work or art. Creativity engages right brain (intuitive) thinking, and is a form of expression of the soul.
If you don’t have a creative outlet, find one fast! Having a creative outlet is imperative for getting out of you what, if left inside, can manifest as destructive behaviours. Without being able to express ourselves creatively we shut off this extremely important part of ourselves which is needed to balance the rational/logical right side. Many women who don’t express the creative parts of themselves may see this unexpressed energy channeled into negative areas such as drinking, shopping or socialising excessively.
Create just for creations sake, not to show anyone, just pour your soul into whatever it is you enjoy doing. Schedule 10 minutes per day or 1 hour a week and notice how good you start to feel. If you can’t think of what you’d like to do, think back to what you enjoyed as a child, or take something up you’ve always wanted to.
Goddess Tip 4 - Do more of what you love
Sounds simple but this is the key to being happy. Being happy makes you joyful. And being joyful makes you the most attractive force in the room. Many of us sacrifice what we enjoy doing because we think we should be doing something else. Being responsible mothers, capable career women, compassionate care-givers, we tend to over-give and under-receive.
Let me let you in on a secret – if you’re not doing things you love often, chances are you are not as happy as you could be. And, if you’re not happy, neither are the people around you and they are not getting the best part of you.
Honouring yourself enough to make time for doing things you love to do means you’ll be more alive, awake and energised and you’ll end up having more to give, be more productive in other areas and feel vital and enthusiastic towards life.
This not only makes you feel good but a pleasure to be around.
Goddess Tip 5 - Cultivate your sensuality
A woman who delights in her senses is absolutely mesmerising to watch. Why? This involves getting out of your head and into your body, fully feeling the aliveness of the present moment and not getting stuck up in mind matters of the past and the future. It is what makes a woman juicy and ripe. Feeling pleasure in our physicality allows us to say YES to life! One of the reasons a woman who is having a lot of sex becomes more attractive to men is because she has been revelling in the pleasure of her body and her senses.
There’s plenty of ways to cultivate your sensuality without a partner too. Turn the music up loud and dance your heart out. Really taste and savour your food. Take deep slow breathes and feel the oxygen permeate your lungs with cool air. Take your shoes off and get out in nature, feeling the earth, sand or grass beneath your feet. Practice Yoga or some other movement meditation. Close your eyes and tune into the sounds around you one at a time. Take a bubble bath, and explore your body in the bubbles by lightly running your hand over your lips, arms, breasts, belly etc.
