Is Your Creatress Running the Show?

There is a ‘She’ inside of you that is unstoppable.

‘She’ is the High Priestess of Manifestation.

‘She’ is the Warrioress.

‘She’ is the Confident Goddess.

‘She’ hunts down fears, insecurities and feelings of inadequacy.

‘She’ is the full embodiment of feminine strength, power and beauty.

All women have a unique ‘She’ screaming to come out.

Craving to be fully self-expressed.

Seeking to live the full potential of her purpose.

‘She’ is also hungry for something that we don’t talk about that much….

‘She’ has a lust to bring to the surface secret desires, sexual fantasies and yearnings for mystical encounters. And the most interesting part is that most of the time, women don’t even know it.

Why?

We are so busy taking care of business, taking care of others, that we numb ourselves from our most intimate desires. We don’t even know they are there. But we feel them!

I see this in every intimate conversation I have with women. Even women who tell me they have it all. There is always something deeper; it’s an intuitive feeling that they might be missing out on something.

That something is having ‘Her’ be in charge of the show. And for that to happen, you have to find ‘Her’ and turn ‘Her’ on.

And when ‘She’ is turned-on, you have access to your most intimate longings and desires.

The desires that you have repressed because you don’t believe you can have them, you think they are wrong and crazy. It’s simply because you haven’t activated all your power to attain them.

‘She’ is Spirit talking to you and working through you.

‘She’ wants to access higher dimensions and to be immersed in spiritual knowledge and service.

‘She’ is the one that wants to say yes to her intuition at every moment, so there is no reason to worry about anything, ever.

‘She’ is the one who is so damn sexy that she calls into her life exactly what she wants.

‘She’ is so powerful that she always knows what to say, do, be or act.

‘She’ is the one that experiences orgasmic pleasure.

‘She’ is the real you.

Esther Perel: Gender, Fluidity, and Desire

More exciting news, Feministas! We are thrilled to tell you that Esther Perel will be joining us at Emerging Women Live 2017 October 5-8th in Denver, CO. Why are we so pumped?

We find that stepping into your sexual power can be crucial to stepping into your full power as a feminine leader. What does one have to do with the other? If we’re disconnected from the flame that’s inside of us, nothing’s gonna happen. People will feel it (or feel something missing) and we’ll be exhausted from running on fumes.

Esther Perel is a penetrating observer of social and cultural patterns shaping our relationships: with our partners, with our desires, with our sexuality, with ourselves. At Emerging Women Live 2015, she invited us to imagine we were gathered for happy hour, favorite cocktails or mocktails in hand, and she asked us what she calls the 5 essential questions:

Why does good sex fade even with couples who continue to love each other? Why does intimacy not guarantee good sex? Why does sex make babies while parenting kills sex drive? Can we want what we already have? And why is the exotic so erotic?

We were HOOKED.

Here’s a few snippets from our Emerging Women podcast “The Fluidity of Desire” to help you get a feel for Esther’s brilliant perspective on women and desire in the modern age. Listen to the full podcast to hear more (plus get the benefits of hearing Esther talk about desire in a French accent).


Enjoy!

Excerpts from The Fluidity of Desire with Esther Perel & Chantal Pierrat

EP: Many women in this age of perfection have to learn to just say, “It’s enough for today. And now me,” rather than, “Wait!” She’s exasperated or frustrated or something beyond, and then she doesn’t know how to experience desire because then she experiences deserving. Now she’s in the realm of resentment and now she doesn’t just say “I want,” she says, “I deserve,” right?

“Deserving” is wanting a prize. Some people don’t feel that they are allowed to want so they have to be at the end of their ropes to finally say, “Now me!” But then they say it with such violence and with such an aggression that they can shake up the whole house.

That’s what happens many times in relationships. She doesn’t say it earlier when it’s just, “Hey, I feel like it, I want to,” she screams it: “I deserve! I’ve had it! I’ve had enough!” And then she blames him or her or whoever else is around her for not being allowed to say this sooner.

In fact, she just doesn’t feel like she can say it sooner because she first needs to be perfect, have it all done, and then she feels that desire is a reward rather than that desire is basically part of her human right.

CP:When we’re living in that loop of perfection, then that criticism can’t help but spill out. Because we’re putting so much on ourselves, we bring those standards to our relationships, and then it’s nothing but “lack” and “criticism” and “not good enough” on both the inside and the outside.

EP: It’s really kind of an epidemic at this point, yes? You’ve got the most confident, successful, powerful group of women in history walking around constantly with an inner voice of “flawed, and critical, and not enough.” It’s just tragic. And, I should add, resentful, because, “How can you sit down when there is so much to do? Don’t you see?” But why don’t you just sit down? Does it really matter? Is that going to be written on your epitaph? “You cleaned when…” or “You organized and labeled when…” or whatever? Or, “You deprived yourself nicely”?

It’s a very interesting thing to help women allow themselves the permission to experience pleasure, which is really where desire resides. To experience freedom, to experience autonomy, and all of that, we end up instantly feeling selfish and guilty.

CP: Well, what’s interesting about what you’re saying is that because we’re kind of hardwired to touch into our desire through the other, it’s hard to get in touch with that. It’s like a muscle we have to flex to find the source of our desire within.

EP: We rekindle desire by rekindling, first of all, the permission to think about oneself and not in the productive, instrumental way. The erotic is totally unproductive. You accomplish nothing. It’s just a state of aliveness and of vitality and of sensuality.

We are sexual beings, and sexuality isn’t how often she has sex and how long the sex lasts and how many orgasms she has. It’s basically a connection with her erotic self. It’s a much broader definition of sexuality, one where we talk about reaching desire, and that’s the progression that she needs to go through.

CP: I think a lot of what holds us back as women is this lack of ownership on that individual level of our own desire, and also lack of self-acceptance. We’re working on freeing ourselves from this perfection and actually kind of falling in love with ourselves so that we are a turn on, not just in terms of our relationships, but that we can have that juice and charisma and energy, frankly, to lead in a way that’s empowerful and impactful.

EP: But then we will need to learn that our appreciation of ourselves doesn’t become perfect, but more like how Brené Brown talks about it, because we welcome the gift of imperfection. If we actually are more compassionate with ourselves, we accept our imperfections, we’re not agreeing to sell everything, and we seem like ourselves and can even get a good laugh at it, then we will be in a much better place.

CP: What do you recommend for women, especially, to grab onto in this era of… “chaos” is kind of a strong word… but an era of new? Everything’s  being re-created and we’re rethinking everything. What’s something solid that we can hold onto that we can fall back on and know that it’s always going to be there?

EP: People. People. Community. That’s the only thing we have in this world. We don’t have the traditional pillars, we don’t have the models. What we have is conversation, which is really what your gathering is about, creating real-life, embodied experiences where people come together and discuss all the dilemmas of love and living.

And in those conversations, bit by bit, we dismantle and we challenge the old hierarchy. It’s time for women to be angry without being considered bitches or aggressive or masculine. It’s time for them to not constantly worry about being liked. It’s time that they think that they can ask for the same amount that the men are asking. It’s time that she feel that she can be seductive without thinking that she’s a slut. It’s time that she can integrate femininity and power as part of her success and her activation story.

It’s all these divisions, basically, dismantling the patriarchy, if you want to put a name on it. But what will replace it isn’t a matriarchy and it’s not genderless, it’s gender-fluid. It’s different. We are just living way too long these days to just abide by one model. And they understand it in the professional world, in the business world, the tech world. Everything is about multiplicity. When it comes to gender identity and relationships, we are left with very little monolithic, narrowly thought out models that don’t serve us anymore. They just don’t serve us.

So what happens is that people get blamed for not succeeding, right? You get blamed because you’re divorced, but nobody ever questions if the model of marriage is so sound. Why do we think marriage is a sound arrangement? And the people who don’t succeed, they’re the failures? And [it’s the same] for everything else. If you can succeed with children, it’s not because there’s a lack of childcare and a lack of good schools and a lack of this and that. It’s because you [know how] to juggle your schedule.

And so we are privatizing social problems and making the individual responsible for it. And I think that if women come together, the biggest challenge is not to think that it’s just a matter of each woman on their own, coming up with societal solutions to society’s problems. They need to be connective solutions for connective problems, in which she is a piece of the voice, that she’s not responsible on her own to deal with the lack of support that the system should provide her. To me, that is going to be the biggest shift that women can offer these days. It’s actually a challenge to the excesses of individualism.

I can’t even tell you, just from this week, with the amount of women I met, how often my eyes fill up. I’m thinking, “You carry a load, don’t you, and you actually think you should. And you still think that you’re not carrying it well enough.” I’m thinking, “My God, can we stop personalizing difficulties that are systemic, as if they’re your personal challenge?” It’s not like that, it’s really bigger than you, and we have to remember that it’s bigger than you, and then all come together and address it and make those changes.

And then our lives will be better and so will the lives of the people around us, because we will be less upset. And rather than thinking we’re upset because we can’t do it all, we will be upset because we are thinking that we should do it all.

CP: Amen, sister. May it be so!

“The Crossroads of Should & Must” with Elle Luna

Have you ever asked yourself the question “How can I find and follow my true calling?” That moment is what Elle calls “standing at the crossroads of Should and Must.” “Should” is what we feel we ought to be doing, or what is expected of us. “Must” is the thing we dream of doing, our heart’s desire. And it was her own personal journey that inspired Elle to share her story which, in a few short months, has touched hundreds of thousands of people who’ve read it or heard Elle speak on her new book: The Crossroads of Should and Must.

Starting out or starting over, making a career change or making a life change, the most life affirming thing you can do is to honor the voice inside that says you have something special to give, and then heed the call and act. Many have traveled this road before. Elle’s keynote will share how you can choose must, too.

“MoneyType: Learn How Your Values Impact Your Money”with Amanda Steinberg

How do your values impact your money? No matter your level of financial knowledge, you have a MoneyType that shapes your unique perspective on your finances. Amanda Steinberg, CEO of DailyWorth and WorthFM, will discuss how everyone is a unique combination of 5 MoneyTypes, each with their own gifts and sabotage patterns. Learn how to make your money work for you.

“Outrageous Openness: Letting the Divine Take the Lead” with Tosha Silver

Tired of running yourself ragged? Of constantly efforting, striving, and pushing to manifest your desires? Come join Tosha Silver as she speaks to a different way of Being, of a life of aligning with Divine Source. When the Divine is invited in fully no problem is too big or too mundane; everything becomes holy.

The first step in this invitation is the sacred act of Offering. Offering isn’t about giving up, it’s actually impassioned, soul-deep surrender. It allows miracles and surprises far beyond what the mind can conceive.  The right actions get shown at the right time.

Offering navigates that tricky space where Desire and Detachment meet. It’s truly the key that opens the door to Love and yet it’s actually very, very practical! Solutions arise in ways the ego would never imagine.  When all is Offered, life begins to happen through you rather than by you.

Check out more workshop choices HERE.

Looking for guidance? Dive in to the Divine.

Dear Emerging Women,

As long as I can remember I have wanted to be “psychic.” As a young girl I’d squeeze my eyes shut and beg for a sign, a flicker of communication from a higher power to help me navigate all the unknowns, a life raft of certainty when the waters got murky.

I still yearn for the comfort that comes from knowing that an All-Powerful Force has my back. The difference is that now I try to keep my eyes open – leaning into the world, looking for miracles, love taps and gentle whispers that show up as synchronicities, timely opportunities or the right person at the right time.

girl

Life around me is constantly reaching out trying to get my attention, and the more I can open up to this, the more “held” I feel.

This hidden but felt guidance becomes reliable and consistent – to the point that I am able to accept all in my life as purposeful and intentional.
In this state of receptivity I have been able to move through some very challenging times as an entrepreneur. I feel like an Aikido master in a beautiful dance with the Divine, embracing, not fighting, all that comes my way.

This is why I love Tosha Silver. She points out that when we do this kind of work all the time, everyday life becomes OUTRAGEOUS. We are able to trust the guidance and just enjoy the extraordinary ride that is life.

Sure, I may still revert and try to claw my way through tricky spots when I am not on top of my game – but I am quickly learning that the shortest route to making anything happen in this world is through relationship to spirit.

Are you dialed in to your Divine guidance? I want to hear about it! Check out our Outrageous Openness Grace & Fire podcast with Tosha Silver and share your story in the comments.

Miracle Makers – #EmergingNow

Dear Friends,

I first discovered Gabby Bernstein through one of her inspirational and empowering videos. With big, open eyes she leaned close to the camera and said in a fierce voice: If a book falls off the shelf in your office, even that has significance. I thought, “Wait – really?” I felt skeptical. I mean, what about Sigmund Freud: sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, right?

That was almost two years ago, before I was deep in the throes of launching a feminine-power based company. The more immersed I became in developing Emerging Women, the more I noticed special synchronicities, surprise connections, and creative collisions with the universe, all directing me in taking action and making decisions for EW.

When I am in tune with my feminine power of receiving, I see these signs more clearly, more frequently and with more trusting eyes. I am amazed at the feeling of ease that comes when I’m navigating with this sign-minded compass. Now I strive to be in constant communication with the universe – it’s so important to the process and unfolding of Emerging Women as a platform and a movement for women’s empowerment.

The more I pay attention, the more I am able to engage with what is coming next, and welllll…. let’s just say that miracles DO happen!


Big love,

Chantal Pierrat

The Power of Story – #EmergingNow

Dear Friends,

I am so excited that Karen May will be speaking at EWlive this year. She’s the head of learning, talent and career development at Google, which was rated the #1 Best Company To Work For by Fortune Magazine this year. As one Googler puts it, “Simply by being here, I feel very naturally motivated to be (and also very proud to be) my best possible self.” While there are a lot of factors that contributed to Google winning the #1 position, I can’t help but admire Karen and her commitment to developing the whole person within the corporate structure. This is the future!

I was watching Karen’s interview with Eckhart Tolle from our friends at Wisdom 2.0 (you can watch the fabulous video on our site) and was struck by her framing of the question, “How do we integrate story in a healthy way into self, particularly in connection to others.” It got me thinking about the power of our own personal stories.

Since the dawn of civilization, humans have been using story-telling to record history, disseminate wisdom, and foster connection within communities. Yet in our Western culture, we are taught to keep to ourselves, share as little as possible, and put on a show that we have it all together. The result is that we have built a society devoted to image and illusion and reverence of the fantastic, rather than one the celebrates the magic of our everyday experience.

Hearing the stories of others helps us to make sense of our world. As women, we need to know that we are not alone in our struggles to be seen and heard. The best mentoring-moments I have ever had are when a woman more experienced than myself opens up honestly about her journey. Hearing the stories of the women who are blazing trails ahead of us helps us to identify with the strongest parts of ourselves – giving us that powerful “If she could do it, so can I” feeling.

That’s the power that Emerging Women speakers are able to bring to the audience, and that Emerging Women participants are able to bring to each other. It’s a place to show up, get real, and be strengthened by the reality of each others’ stories so that we can continue to do meaningful work in the world. Thank you so much for being a part of it.


Big love,

Dancing to Emerge – #EmergingNow

Dear Friends,

In this modern world of innovative ideas, sophisticated thinking, complex systems and change, I find myself spending more and more time in my head. Meditation, yoga and spiritual practice all help to temper my overactive mind and bring in some space from which to witness the unfolding of my deepest self. But nothing feels as real to me as when my inner life comes alive through dance and movement.

I have been dancing my whole life, starting with ballet at age 4. By the time I was in my mid 20’s, I was fully committed to the rave scene. There was an incredible freedom in this kind of dance that I had not experienced in the more form oriented dance classes of my youth. I discovered the real sense of freedom that comes when we move our bodies unabashedly, without judgement, in community, and in the flow of the present moment.

I began to explore African, Latin and Rhythms classes. By my late 20’s I realized that dance for me was much more than performance – it was about feeling my emotions, connecting with my sensuality, and expressing my being in the fullest way possible.

“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.” ~ Martha Grahamtwitter

I have been teaching dance “on the side” for the last 12 years: through a full-time job with lots of travel, through two births (and a few miscarriages), through traumas and joys, creativity and day-to-day routines, and now through my emergence as an entrepreneur. It has been my practice 2-4 times a week for well over a decade, and I feel like I am just scratching the surface of what I can learn about myself and others through this practice.

It is only natural that dance has become a metaphor for our unique expression within Emerging Women, and that movement has become such an important part of the Emerging Women Live event experience. What better way to connect with and practice powerful feminine principles than through dance?

I’d love to hear what you’ve discovered through your own relationship with dance – check out my 5 Reasons for Why I Dance and leave a comment!

The Feminine Superpower of Receiving

Dear Emerging Women,

If you’re like me, you might find it a little challenging to trust the “feminine superpower” of receiving. For the past several years, I have been challenged to stop relying on the perpetural doing-mode that has served me so well in the past and to start opening up to more abundant resources to achieve my goals.

When we learn to receive, we learn to truly communicate with our lives – noticing feedback from the world, feeling more deeply into our bodies, and finding solutions to challenges we never thought of before. It’s not easy! And it takes trust.

But, when I practice this simple concept, it feels like pure magic because I didn’t have to DO much to make things happen. How foreign! For years I led with my masculine side – workin’ it like a dude – because that is how I was taught to achieve success. And I was successful, but it took a lot of energy and a lot of pushing, and I was finding it exhausting and completely unsustainable.

When I am in conscious receiving mode, things seem to fall into place more perfectly than anything I could have planned or strategized – plus I have more energy to draw on for the next leap. Finding our way back to our feminine superpowers is the only way to access the unique strengths that will sustain us as we work to make real and lasting change in the world. The momentum is there, ladies – we just need to open our hearts to it and bravely ride the wave! I am going for it – you?

Big love,

Chantal Pierrat

Special Gift for Early Birds: Tara Mohr’s “Playing Big”

“You know that woman. She’s a good friend or a colleague from work. She’s smart and insightful. She gets it: whatever the situation at her company, or in her community, or in the news, she has great ideas about what needs to happen. She’s high integrity too—no greed, no temptation to corruption, no big hunger for power. Sometimes, you listen to her talk and think: if only people like her were in charge…

So here’s the thing: the way that you look at that woman? Someone looks at you that way. In fact, many people do. To us, you are that talented woman who doesn’t see how talented she is. You are the woman who—it’s clear to us—could start an innovative company, improve the local schools or write a book that would change thousands of lives. You are that fabulous, we-wish-she-was-speaking-up-more woman.”

“Playing Big is about bridging the gap between what we see in you and what you know about yourself.”twitter

That’s a passage from Tara Mohr’s new book, Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message. Slated for release by Gotham Books on October 14, Playing Big is about bridging the gap between what we see in you and what you know about yourself. It’s a practical guide to moving past self-doubt and creating what you most want to create—whether in your career, your community, or in a passion you pursue outside of work. It’s playing big according to what playing big truly means to you. And if you don’t know what playing big looks like for you yet, the ideas and tools here will help clear away the blocks so you can discover that.

Does Tara’s message of playing big with your calling resonate with you? It sparks a fire in us, and we want to share that fire with our community. That’s why when you sign up for Emerging Women Live ’14 before the Early Bird deadline, you’ll receive Playing Big as a special gift at the conference.
