Taking Back Our Feminine Truth As Women Starts Here

You’ve probably noticed there is a movement going on.

A movement of women waking up from the shame-based belief that their bodies are not good enough.

I believe this part of the reawakening of the feminine or “goddess” energy on the planet today.

While a “women’s movement” has been going on for centuries in different forms, this current wave is waking us all up to be more conscious about the truth of our bodies and our feminine energy.

Dove was one of the original “big brands” that started to show women that we had these shame-based beliefs about our bodies when they launched their “Campaign for Real Beauty” back in 2004—the same year I started to teach Beauty Profiling and created Dressing Your Truth.

If you are a woman today, you are naturally a part of this movement. But how are you actively taking back the truth of who you are?

20 Tips for Working Harmoniously With These 4 Types of People

But the upside is that conflict shows up in our lives as a teacher.

Over the years I’ve come to appreciate workplace conflict as an invitation both to learn more about myself and those I work with—and to be more open to growth.

For me, that growth accelerated once I began to understand these 4 Types of people—and discovering which one I was, too.)

This Life-Changing Book Helped Me Heal From Back Pain

Last year I did a 3-part series about my experience of healing my chronic back pain (Watch those here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.)

When the back pain first started, it was foreign territory for me to be faced with the experience of daily pain, and the limitations that my back problems caused for me.

On a particularly challenging and painful day, when I felt I might possibly have to live with my pain the rest of my life, I happened to be searching online for some answers.

I found the answer in the form of a simple book, which changed my life and helped teach me how to heal the pain.
