I have never been one to sleep naked.
Yep, admittedly even as a Nude Yoga teacher I have never understood how or why people would choose to sleep naked!
You must get so cold!!
As a little girl I used to get sick a lot – mostly with asthma and chest infections – so my Mum would always cover me up head to toe in pyjamas, socks, jumpers and blankets.
Even leaving the house I rarely leave without a jacket, scarf and maybe even a beanie!

Your libido is greatly affected by where you live, just ask anyone in a relationship who lives at home with their parents! #instantmoodkiller And recently I have had a lot of my clients unhappy with their home life, and hence unhappy with their sex life. The thing is, to be vulnerable, surrender and let go sexually we must feel safe - both emotionally and physically.
I haven’t met a woman yet who is not interested in developing her orgasms. Orgasm can be just a few seconds peak experience (raise your hand if this is you? It's OK it's been me too!!). Actually this is what most women who orgasm experience, if they do experience them at all. Or, orgasms can be delicious pleasure waves… they can take us on a journey into bliss… they can open us beyond what we ever knew was possible… they can make every cell of our being vibrate with joy. These big, vaginal O’s are the ones that can literally change your life. I am referring to the G-spot, A-spot, cervico-uterine, vaginal entrance, orgasms experienced in various chakras, multi-orgasms and full body orgasms. The fact is – every woman is capable of having those. And so are you! So, lets get down with this one – why may you still not be experiencing those profound, at times earthshaking orgasms?
The other day I was walking down the stairs at home in my short (very short) yoga pants. My partner’s Reiki client was sitting in our lounge room and she looked up at me as I was coming downstairs and says [with much enthusiasm] “Wow, what powerful, strong legs you have!”
The old Rosie would have taken offence to this comment, thinking she meant I was fat. Ego-driven, self-sabotagey Rosie would have been embarrassed, insulted and ashamed of her ‘shapely’ legs.
However, what flew out my mouth surprised me!
I said “THANKS!!” with a big smile on my face.
And it was genuine.
I was chuffed that she admired my curvaceous thighs. And even more chuffed that I f*cking loved them too!
The way we are showing up sexually is a good indicator of what is going on deep within us.
"As in the bedroom, so in life".
They are not separate; in fact, they are VERY linked.
This is pertinent in my life at present as in the past week that I have not been prioritising my pleasure. In fact I have been putting off delicious love making sessions with my partner - saying something along the lines of: 'Oh maybe later, I just have a few things to do at the moment,' or 'After my cup of tea,' or 'Hmm, I have a head ache,' or 'I want to have a shower and wash my hair first,’ or ‘I’m just too tired right now’.
The list goes on!!
Recently I was sitting in a sister circle with about 25 women and we were sharing our experiences with sexuality.
A broad topic of conversation, yes, but deeply healing when discussed openly in a safe space with other conscious women.
As we all opened up, became vulnerable and shared our experiences I realised one thing: the women all had a similar story around sexuality and their relationship with sex.
And most stories were along the lines of one of these…

Much like all aspects that offer us empowerment, societal conditioning has created a culture of taboo & shame; a woman’s menstrual cycle is one of those. Look at how many women see their menstrual cycle as a ‘burden’. In a fast paced masculine dominated world where we are always DOING, there is no room to rest & surrender, to reflect, to simply BE.
If you’ve found yourself in an toxic or abusive relationship, which is not serving either of your highest good, it’s time to cut chords - physically and emotionally. If you didn't get a chance to read my previous article on determining whether you’re in an emotionally abusive relationship, you can read it here. I am all for working it out after a fight, argument or disagreement and not running away as soon as things get a little tough, however there is a difference between normal relationship niggles and settling because you don’t believe you're worth more (or because you believe he/she will change).
Over the past couple of months I have attracted a handful of clients into my realm who currently are or have been in emotionally (and physically) abusive relationships. And I believe I have attracted these women into my field as I am now…ready. Ready to share my story and help women who are…trapped.
When we disconnect from our Yoni, or let's say our "Sacral Chakra", we disconnect from our life force. When we are in touch with our flow of sexual energy and creative energy (it's the same thing), we feel alive, vibrant and radiant. Even before I knew anything about Kundalini energy, I knew when someone was or wasn't in touch with their sexual energy. School teachers were the most obvious example! Often my teachers in school were elder, overweight, grumpy, divorced women who had a strong belief in Christ (and therefore likely a lot of shame around sexuality). I would often pray for them to get a good ol' fashioned 'shagging' as I felt this is what they needed. And I bet you it is what they needed, and still do!
