When Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome repeatedly brought me to my knees over a period of 5 years I knew that I needed to be doing something different to receive or experience something different.
However, I was too tired and too overwhelmed to figure out what needed to change and, instead, kept doing what I always did when I was overwhelmed – I added more things e.g. supplements, a special diet, rules about what was ‘good’ and what was ‘bad’ (all based on external sources) and I did more of whatever I had been doing because hard work and effort always pays off right?
Or does it?
What I finally realised was that it wasn’t about adding more or doing more. It was very much about letting go. Letting go of all the old patterns – ways of thinking about life, ways of responding to life and ALL the things I was holding so tightly together and holding for everyone else. Only then could I make space to RECEIVE more of what I needed to become healthy – more nourishment, support, rest, energy, love, and mostly, receiving intuitive guidance from my own body about my own unique needs.
Then my body had the ingredients it needed to come back into balance using its innate knowledge.
That is why the Assessment phase, Connection phase and Release phase is followed by the Receive phase in my 1:1 Fatigue to Flow Coaching program. We have to become aware of what doesn’t work, feel safe enough to let it go, then actually let it go, to make space to receive what is right for our own bodies and our healing.
The work of my mentor, Juliet Haines, has played a profound role in my healing journey and adds to all the phases of my coaching. I was attracted to her focus on the masculine and feminine energies because most of us who burn out express and operate in life largely from an out-of-balance masculine energy which is disconnected from the feminine energy.
Through Juliet’s guidance I learned to become more conscious of the masculine and feminine; to feel the softness and nurturing of the feminine while experiencing the stillness, presence and structure of the masculine; to feel more safe in my life; to be able to deeply surrender and, finally, to receive – a profound sense of being supported, guided by a deep knowing, and nourishment. THIS was what really took my healing journey up to a whole new level.
Juliet is currently offering a 6 week Awakening Intimacy Immersion (starting 19th March). This spiritual and embodied process can honestly be the missing piece for many women when it comes to healing fatigue.
Our fatigue happens because of a disconnection from the body and a disconnection between masculine and feminine energy (which creates physical imbalance). Healing happens when we remember and re-connect to ourselves.
The bonus is that this inner re-connection also results in a mirrored connection and intimacy in relationships outside of the self as well as increased balance, joy, vitality and healing.
Juliet has the capacity to create the most incredibly sacred and beautiful space for transformation, healing, being, feeling and remembering who you truly are as a women during these transformational times on our planet.
It is in the connection and the remembering of your truth and power that the layers of exhaustion fall away and the conditioning that creates the exhaustion is purified.
If you wish to receive a taste of what Juliet teaches take a look at this free workshop she offered and recorded 2 weeks ago.
Remember that life force energy is sexual energy – it is the feminine creative energy that forms and gives life. It is what nourishes our cells and provides vitality. When we drop into the body – the heart and the belly – we come back to ourselves with renewed intimacy, we balance masculine and feminine and we allow the fullness of health and wellbeing to come into being.
If you feel you’re ready to RECEIVE then Juliet’s immersion will be a great step on that journey. If what she offers does not resonate with you let me know and let’s chat about what can support you.
