5 Radiant Femme-Boss Hacks to Uplevel your Game

When we step into ‘boss mode’ we often step into our masculine. We make to-do lists, schedules, non-negotiables and get hyper-focused on the bottom line. Having the ability to integrate our masculine is an invaluable tool that really anchors stuff getting done, and effectively. However, when we are too busy pushing and grinding, we can forget to open to unknown variables and flow with spontaneity.

When we are driving hard and fast in our masculine, we often finish the day exhausted, depleted and drained. The masculine essence is very penetrating, using his strong will and determination as the motivating driving force. The feminine essence is receptive, open to emotions expressing and plans shifting. She is tuned in and turned on to life. She uses her 6th sense to be in the right place at the right time, thus being more efficient and effective with her time and energy.  

By adding your soft, sweet and sexy feminine into your day you’ll be amazed at how much you can get done while actually enjoying yourself!

See if you can notice the difference when you are operating from your masculine essence versus your feminine essence. Make it a fun experiment to find that sweet spot where you can remain receptive and effective.

Here are 5 femme-boss hacks to spice up your day.

 

  1. ‘To feel’ list rather than ‘to do’ list

Rather than beginning your day with your ‘to-do’ list, get your day jamming with your ‘to-feel’ list. Write out 3-5 desired feelings for the day. How you wish to feel is usually at the core of what you wish to achieve. Instead of landing an account, how will that account make you feel when it lands? Instead of prepping dinner before your kids get hangry, how will it feel to have a beautiful nourishing spread waiting for your hungry family? By focusing on your feels, you will set your day in motion for success!

We don’t have control over our external environment, however we do have control over our emotional body and reactions. By focusing on our feelings, and creating a list that aligns with them, we set a day in motion for success and magic!

 

  1. Prioritize Pleasure

Yes mama, I know you have SO much to do, and trust me, I get it! However, hear me out. I know from experience that if I am juiced up, have endorphins flowing, feeling beautiful and freshly orgasmed then my work is 3x’s more effective, creative and focused!

When we prioritize pleasure we amp up productivity! It can be a difficult switch to make when we already feel like we don’t have any extra hours in the day to give to anything, let alone pleasure. Pleasure may often feel like a luxury that only comes on the weekends or special occasions. Trust me , when you prioritize pleasure or add it into your to do/feel list you will get more done in less time. Try it out!

After a juicy night of love making, the next day my house is clean, things are baking all day, meals are made on time, work is flowing and I am more playful and engaged with my daughter. Did I suddenly find a time hack?! YES, play and pleasure!  

 

  1. Wear clothes that allow your belly to breath

This is an important and often overlooked one.

Ever heard the saying, “dress for success?”

In order to align with our divine feminine, our belly needs space to breath. Our belly is the foundation of our feminine essence and carries all the wisdom of the ages. In order to tap into her fully, we need to allow space for her to breathfully. Imagine the difference you feel when you wear tight yoga pants vs a long flowy dress. Our feelings and energy can often directly correlate to our outfit and how comfortable we feel both physically and emotionally.

Even when I have a home work-day I love to put on my fav dress, dangly earrings and gold glitter because I choose to feel good and look beautiful – for me.

Try wearing clothes that allow your belly space to express herself and take little breaks throughout the day to take some deep belly breaths.

 

  1. Hydrate with Blessed Water

The divine feminine is water, flowing and embracing. She can be soft and gentle or wild and rapid. Water is receptive to intentions infused into it. This is proven science;Dr. Emoto showed how human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. Take a moment and bless your bottle of water. Speak your intentions for the day, your goals and/or your to-feel list, into your water and witness how your day mirrors these back to you.

Our bodies are about 60% water and are constantly shifting at a molecular level with the words we speak. Staying hydrated is number 1 for staying on your game no matter what your role is. Blessing your water is a sure way to get the results you want while embodying your Divine Feminine.

 

  1. Make everything an altar

The feminine loves to beautify everything she touches. She places flowers on her desk, arranges meals in aesthetically pleasing ways, places crystals in her water and pulls tarot cards to start her day. Whatever your day brings, make it your job to make it more beautiful than you found it. Entering and working in a clean and beautiful space is invigorating and inspiring. When we see beautiful, we feel more beautiful. Take an extra moment in your day to make your desk, or your kitchen, or your car an altar. By adding that sacred feel, we are actually letting the universe know we understand it’s bigger than us. We are allowing and inviting the universal forces of creation to weave through our day. When we make everything sacred, it’s amazing how much it divinely aligns naturally and effortlessly for us.

Get it gurl!

Protect your Assets, Magnetize your Magic and Strengthen your Energy Field with Kundalini Yoga

Are you constantly trying to protect your energy and ward off danger?

Are you wary of things being ‘too good’?

 

I know you’ve been hurt before. It makes total sense that you have built protective mechanisms to feel safe in the world. I understand why you are constantly smudging your space and clearing your belly.

 

The thing is, if we constantly continue to give our attention to clearing and processing we will continue to magnetize more and more to continue processing and protecting. My friend Matt Kahn lovingly calls this the ‘Cosmic Janitor’ – it’s time to put the broom and smudge stick down, we no longer need to sweep the karmic basement.

 

As the feminine, it is our nature to want to open, to surrender and to allow. When we build walls around ourselves, we begin to close off to the magic. We stop talking to strangers and allowing people in. We may find ourselves  in a constant state of judgement or spells of protection.

 

In a universe of ‘all is energy’ how do we find the balance between completely trusting the flow and also holding practical discernment?

 

Imagine this: the world is our external mirror, reflecting back to you what you  put out. So every time we drop a token of love into the collective, another reason to love returns. Every time we judge, criticize, or dramatize, the universe will continue to feed that story. This means we get to choose what we desire to have reflected back to us.

 

If you look into the mirror and smile you will receive a smile.

If you look in the mirror and frown you will receive a frown .

This is a micro-cosmic lens of the macro-cosmic reality.

 

Ok, stay with me.

 

Obviously we don’t have complete control over our external circumstances and how other people around us behave. However, we do have control of our emotions and our thoughts. We have control over how we wish to perceive our external environment.

 

We have control over our sensing of danger lurking or magic awaiting.

 

Here’s the secret, if we spend consistent quality time strengthening our energetic body, refining our mind and focusing on the good, then we can spend less energy on protection and discernment. With a strong auric field, which you can think of as  an extended energetic outline of your physical body, danger won’t even be attracted to you. . When we take the time to fill ourselves with love and light, that is exactly what we will magnetize. So we can spend more time celebrating and less time processing – hallelujah!

A refined human has an aura that can extend up to nine feet. A strong aura automatically uplifts and improves mood, as well as the whole body system. It is a subtle space that interweaves us with the universe and allows us to attract opportunities, vitality and wealth.

 

Our aura provides natural protection against disease and a negative environment. When the aura is weak, there is a sense of vulnerability to everything around us, like germs, attitudes, and emotions. When our aura is defragmented we feel shrunken, confused and dim.  

 

“The aura changes. You are ten trillion cells. They change every seventy-two hours.  A person can lie, but the aura doesn’t lie. You can very rhythmically read it; it will tell you everything. We want to grow in our strength, right? That’s the purpose of life: to be vital, to grow, so we can face every day, every person, every relationship, everything with excellence.”

-Yogi Bhajan

 

Let’s experiment. Here  is an invitation to spend the next 40 days taking 5-10 minutes daily  to strengthen and light-infuse your auric field. Do this at the beginning of the day to set the tone and intention of the day. Journal your progress and report back.

We want to know how it feels when you can open and trust more.

We are eager to hear how the magic flows into your experience as you focus more of your energy on strengthening from the inside out rather than protecting from the outside in.

 

Here are 3 easy and potent Kundalini Yoga practices or Kriya for Strengthening the Aura.
