I believe that we all deserve to feel good in our own bodies. We deserve pleasure and fulfillment. And the prescription to get us there is really quite simple.
Over the years I’ve discovered that many women complain of being unhappy in their relationships, at work, with their role as parents. They felt like they were missing something and no matter how much they worked at being good, accomplishing great stuff or taking care of others, they still didn’t feel fulfilled. And when it came to their intimate lives, especially in the sex department, so many women told me that they just didn’t enjoy sex. Even though they explained that their partner was really loving, attentive and actually had great lovemaking skills.
Now not everyone had the same problem, but when I started to dig deeper into the mindset these women shared one surprising thing appeared – they didn’t actually believe that they deserved pleasure. Either they felt they needed to earn it with good behavior, being beautiful or as a reward given for some mysterious action they could never understand.
Any of this sound familiar to you?
When it comes to orgasm, we must accept and surrender to pleasure in order to reach the heights of ecstasy.
Denying yourself pleasure won’t get you to heaven.
Research to the rescue!
My research and professional experience has led me to create programs to help women learn to love themselves – flaws and all. I even taught an applied positive psychology course at the University of Monaco and gave a TEDx on the topic of Become Who You Really Are. (You can get a free audio and e-book on How to Liberate + Love Your Authentic Self, based on my programs here.)
This Fall I am releasing a new book, retreat and online course based on my new book The Orgasm Prescription for Women. Currently, I teach a mindfulness & yoga sensuality enrichment program, I provide mentoring and coaching to VIP clients in Monaco and I lead workshops around the world to help women really get these concepts deep in their hearts, body, mind, and soul.
Still, there are so many women around the world who are not hearing the message of how perfect you are – just as you are – there are so many women who still find it hard to fully embrace their femininity with boldness and confidence.
There are women who are denying themselves the pleasure and fulfillment that comes from being in a healthy intimate relationship because they still haven’t claimed their right to pleasure and joy.
Too many women are denying themselves the pleasure and fulfillment that comes from being in a healthy intimate relationship because they still haven’t claimed their right to pleasure and happiness.
The Limiting beliefs that hold us back
> Some women think they are abnormal or broken if they don’t have the same desires or achieve pleasure as others do.
> Some women dislike their body because it looks different than others.
> Some women feel inhibited by their religion, beliefs, or body image.
> Some women find it hard to achieve orgasm through sexual intercourse alone.
> Some women expect their partner to ‘give’ them an orgasm.
> Some women limit their sensuality to sex.
How many of these apply to you???
How to accept & surrender to more pleasure
If you find that some of those limiting beliefs are rattling around in your subconscious mind, it’s time to replace them! Now is the time to affirm your right to pleasure for the mere fact of just being alive!
Step 1: Begin by asking yourself, “is this true for me now?” Step 2: Next ask yourself, “what belief is equally or even more true about me and pleasure?” Step 3: Then commit to look for ways to bring more pleasure to yourself.
Here are specific ways you can enhance your sensual fulfillment and sexual enjoyment
* Treat yourself to a spa day, just because.
*Take time to fully enjoy a hot bath, cup of tea or quiet time in the garden
* Be fully present and tuned into the moment with your partner.
* Tune into to your bodily sensations, rather than numbing yourself to how you feel physically
* Let go of internal mental chatter and worry.
* Accept and trust that your partner really does find you sexy, just as you are.
* Treat sex as a sacred, even spiritual experience that is good for your soul
Anytime guilt or a funny feeling like you’re being too indulgent creeps in, affirm your right to pleasure by saying:
I am a divine being with a right to pleasure, joy and fulfillment.
