I want my husband to desire me.
I want my body to forgive me.
I want to trust fully again.
I want to show my husband this part of me – all of me.
I want hot, passionate, window-breaking, earth-shaking sex.
I want to open my heart.
I want to be vulnerable.
I want to accept love.
I want to heal the scared little girl inside.
I want to be seen.
I want to love myself completely.
These were the deep yearnings that women had at one of the S-Factor retreats I attended. Mine was, “I want to free my voice”. Saying those words broke me open and started to heal me all at the same time.
What do you want? Deeply? What whispers do you hear when you sit quietly alone? What is your heart asking of you? What does your body need from you? What does your soul cry out for?
I know that some of us live our lives never really hearing our own truth. And it’s easy to do that. We have so many distractions these days – social media, Netflix, constantly being surrounded by people, being really busy and eating, drinking and shopping to numb our yearnings. I know what that feels like. And sometimes it’s easier to ignore our truth than to hear it….because of what it might say. What it might shake up. What it might threaten. What it might expose about our lives and how we are living them.
The thing is, when we don’t go into that space, we never fly high. When we don’t know and live in what is true for us, we are never free. Never released. Never as powerful and beautiful as we are capable of being.
The truth shall set us free.
One of the components of the Juicy Woman Revolution retreat (coming up on July 16th in Toronto) is that we get to spend time in our own truth. Just by granting ourselves a full day of being immersed in who we truly are, we are living in our truth. And it is a glorious place to be. Not always easy. Not always comfortable. But deeply real, deeply nourishing and deeply releasing.
My gorgeous and brave warrior-women, telling yourself the truth about who you are, how you feel and what you want, is a revolutionary act that has the power to transform.
Are you ready to hear your truth? Can I help you by giving you a safe and sacred space to do that? If any of this calls to you, read about the upcoming JWR retreat here. And if there is another woman in your life who you feel could benefit from this work, please stand up for her journey in life and forward this email to her.
In the comments below, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what living in your truth means for you. And as always, thank you.
