First let me begin by saying what a beautiful picture this is above?! Me and one of my very brave 2019 speakers ‘Lauren Love’ in a loving embrace, which i’m sure we both needed! This picture is one of my favourites for many reasons and reminds me of just how courageous Lauren and the other speakers were to stand up in front of a crowd and share their hearts so vulnerably, even through the fears. I'm extremely proud of each of them and wish them all so much beauty on their ever evolving journey - Speaking, being, and expressing their hearts truth always!
As for my 2020 gathering I just had to share how i’m nervously but SO much more excitedly listening to my very wise heart more deeply than before by gently yet abundantly allowing all of my future Gatherings to now expand in many beautiful ways! This will allow more feminine hearts to share, more connections to me made, more words to inspire, and most importantly will allow my own energy to feel truly at peace with this vision of mine and continued birthing, by giving myself, the speakers, and pretty much the whole gathering more ‘un-rushed’ time so it may ‘flow with ease’. After all, everything has to grow and evolve eventually so it may rise even higher in it’s purpose.
As next year will be my Third annual gathering (I have a HUGE affinity with the number three, being a very feminine number), and has great meaning for me, this new expansion will mean that from March 8th (International Woman’s day 2020) will mark the beginning of ONE DAY LONG AWAKENED WOMAN® GATHERINGS!!! and no doubt, eventually, will rise to a few days…who knows?…but for now it’s just one unfoldment at a time (the way I like it). I will also be opening up the speakers spaces for TEN Women to share their hearts, so even MORE beautiful stories can be heard to inspire!
Go where the heart flows…
Many of you may (or may not) know that one of my biggest passions and teachings is the importance of listening to the hearts intelligence to guide us, whilst getting out and connecting fully with Nature in order to help this connection. Now, one of my evolvements is where the next gathering will be. As much as I love London (my birth place and where my last two gatherings were), travelling to the city for these beautiful days is just not where my heart is, so, due to this truth within myself (and I have to stay with MY truth), I will be holding this next gathering much nearer to my home, surrounded by the countryside in a beautiful little village called Tewin. I feel this will make it easier for a different crowd of Women in the Hertfordshire and surrounding areas to join us, whilst keeping the beauty of Natures energy even closer. Also, I always feel more myself in the morning and day time, rather than the evenings, and i’ve learnt that when we are creating our own vision we must always do what feels right for us and trust that when we do, everything will unfold just as it should. I’ve also decided to bring a little more of Mother Earth into my gatherings to add HER feminine touch into the room, so I will be placing beautiful bunches of Roses around and spritzing the corners of the space with gorgeous scents of essential oil to help each Woman (including myself) feel more deeply connected to her womanly, awakened, wildflower heart.
Meditation comes in many forms
Unfortunately (for some) I will no longer be giving my Awakening the Shakti guided meditation. As beautiful as this 20 minute meditation is, I no longer feel it ‘fits’ well in my gathering, or with myself. The truth is, I haven’t meditated in this way for years! (you know, eyes shut, sitting still etc) because in all honesty this ‘way’ of meditating just doesn’t resonate with my essence and the Woman I am anymore, plus I just have WAY too much passion and ‘aliveness’ flowing through my heart that I would never be able to sit still long enough! HaHa! It’s funny how when we truly let go of all which we were (old habits, ways of doing things etc) and all which we thought we ‘should’ be, we FULLY begin to realise all which we NOW are, which then allows us to make changes where needed - letting go of the old to welcome the new, and quite frankly, I only wanna be still when i’m dead!
The truth is, meditation comes in many forms, what works for some may not work for others. Think about it - what is meditation to you? To me it’s purpose is to help release energy which no longer serves us, ease anxiety/stress etc, calm over thinking, whilst awakening us more deeply to the answers within. All this (and more) I personally can now achieve through what I call ‘Movement Meditation’ (basically meditating when on the move!) whether it’s going on my long walks through Mother Earth, up Mountains, through nature, OR when I am dancing and connecting with my more sensual side. Either way these few forms of meditating do so much more for my energy, my heart, and my spirit, (whilst keeping me in shape and my endorphins flowing) than my old ways of meditating ever did…
You never know, I may just throw in a little feminine movement meditation for you all on the day!
So my darlings, whether you are simply in need of some inspiration, OR your own Feminine heart feels called to finally let that beautiful voice of yours publicly soar, break free, and speak your truth, then please do keep your eyes peeled for more info coming later in the year, including how to apply to join me as a 2020 Awakened Woman® speaker!
