Expressing your truth can be an uncomfortable, tedious and sometimes, terrifying experience. But it also doesn't have to be. I recently had a session with an incredible healer, who, whilst doing Reiki on my body, found a huge blockage in my throat Chakra. On the drive home, whilst feeling lighter but also highly emotional, I realised how much I wasn't expressing...or if I was expressing, it was not in a very healthy way (i.e. mini tantrums, passive aggressiveness, bottling up). As it turns out, I had communication blockages with my partner, in a business relationship, home-life, family and friendships. Some major and impacting the direction of my life, others minor frustrations amongst housemates. And of course, the way life works, they all came at once! What I realised is that true communication takes courage, healing takes work, and walking around on eggshells with people is damn painful!
Guest post by Ares Chaplin Anyone who classifies themselves as a 'sex geek', has ever watched porn, or who has a genuine interest in sex, is most probably familiar with the recent ‘explosion’ of female ejaculation or ‘squirting’ videos ‘flooding’ the internet. If you are like most people, including me, and you have ever seen one of these videos online, you probably thought the girls were just peeing and in some cases you may have been right. Not withstanding, the phenomenon of female ejaculation is indeed very real and I know this because; not only is there lots of very real and valid science behind it, I also have had personal experiences with it… as has my partner, and many of our amazing friends.
I met Susana Frioni back in 2013 when I was in a less-than-healthy space. At the time I was in an office job I resented, I was still binge drinking myself to an oblivion on the weekends as a coping mechanism, smoking cigarettes regularly to 'calm' myself, and in a secret relationship with a man who was completely...unavailable. I was unhappily single and lost, but still extremely determined to pull myself out of this mess. *Having experienced all this personally makes me such a damn good coach because I have been there, done that. And I GET IT.*
Tantra isn't just for people in relationships, and it certainly goes beyond sexuality. In tantra, the most important relationship that exists is the relationship with the self, as this effects our external relationships - everyone is a mirror. We are the internal microcosm with the external macrocosm (our inner landscape reflects our outer landscape) and it's key that we harness and cultivate that relationship with the self - both human (physical) and divine (God/spiritual) - first and foremost.
------------------------------ I am competitive by nature. It all began in Grade 5 when I ran my first ever Cross Country race. I noticed a girl called Bianca 10 meters in front of me...winning...we were edging close to the finishing line...and she was about to BEAT me! I thought to myself: 'I can't be beaten by Bianca!' In this instant of 'I-must-win-at-all-costs' I experienced my first ever 'runner's high' and my first glimmer of competitiveness. My compact, little legs became like go-go-gadget legs and I full-steam-ahead-kicked-HER-ASS!
What makes Tara Bliss so damn sexy is her conversation. Her chat is awesome (just read this interview and you will see what I mean!) but so is her soul mission. Bliss is a coach, author and fellow Kundalini Yoga Teacher (with swagger) and is deeply passionate about guiding women to stretch beyond what is reasonable, or what feels possible. Named a ‘self-help guru’ by ELLE magazine, her teachings have been featured in Cleo, The Sunday Mail, The Daily Love and Mind Body Green. So keep an eye out for this shining star! And read on for how she embodies 'sexy'...
As a single woman trolling through Tinder for the better half of 2014...I ended up meeting my boyfriend organically, i.e. by natural causes. Go figure! The truth is, as soon as I let go, did some serious soul work, cut energetic and physical chords with other men hanging around, and incorporated a daily 'sensual self-loving sadhana'...I had an amazing man walk into my life. But boy oh boy it took almost two years to get to that point!
Christal is a Las Vegas-dwelling entrepreneur, who runs a successful coaching business for women called 'The Ladies Coach'. Christal's videos and musings are not only ridiculously empowering and educational they are also hilarious, sassy and super-creative productions. I discovered Christal through being a mutual Tony Robbins groupie and felt I needed to share her enthusiasm for Beyoncé, the word 'AROUSE' and chocolate coated strawberries. Read on to see what these three things have in common...
Happy New Year beautiful people! For me 2014 was a year of TRANSITION and TRANSFORMATION. I changed many aspects of my life, beliefs, habits and environment. I hung up my high heels and desk-jocky recruitment gig and began channeling my precious energy into a more aligned field; my soul purpose - RELATIONSHIP COACHING & KUNDALINI YOGA. The more I practised yoga and raised my vibration (totes became 'ultra spiritual'), the harder I found working in a job that was just a job. Of course I loved finding people jobs (especially in this economical climate) within multi-national companies and making big bucks, but I was yearning for something more, deeper, more fulfilling; something where I could fully be ME.
