6 ways to Rev your Radiant Feminine Energy!

1). Revitalize Your Cells

tidepoolsNot only is the gut responsible for 80% of your immune system, but it’s the foundation of optimal health, gorgeous glowing skin, a fast metabolism, a clear mind and a good mood. All of which contribute to your radiance.

Every cell in your body lives on food and releases the toxicity. So when you eat toxic things, the cells are not only under nourished, but the lymphatic system (the body’s sewer system) is overloaded and becomes stagnant. This causes a whole host of unsavory issues from breakouts, eczema and cloudy eyes that actually indicate more serious issues lurk beneath the surface. Toxicity causes aging and dulls vitality.

Your body is your friend, your home, your support system and your vehicle for navigating your human experience. The more you nourish it with nutrient dense food and love, the more you will shine.

Quick Rule of Radiance:
People are all over the place these days when it comes to eating and I while I believe while there is no one size fits all, decreasing the amount of acid forming foods like coffee, alcohol, bread, pasta, rice, and sweets in favor of alkalizing foods like veggies and fruit, will boost your glow instantly.

Fruit has gotten a bad rep in recent years for having too much sugar. But after many YEARS of avoiding fruit for this very reason, I can tell you fruit sugar really isn’t the problem.

The difference between fruit sugar and a say… a chocolate brownie sugar is that fruit sugar (fructose) comes wrapped in fiber, which slows the absorption into the blood stream. Every bite is nutrient-dense, packed with antioxidants, vitamins and phytonutrients. This magical food simultaneously detoxifies your lymphatic system, making it the most efficient fuel for your body.

By now you’ve heard every celeb under the sun attribute her wrinkle free skin to water. However to really boost your hydration, get your water through high-water-content food that has enzymes and life preserving elements that can penetrate the body’s individual cells more effectively than water alone. High water content foods should predominate our diets, the highest of which is fruit.

Citrus fruits have the highest detox properties as act as an astringent for the lymphatic. Squeeze some lemon in your water to boost its power. Take care to always eat fruit an hour before any other food and two hours after. When mixed with other foods it can causes fermentation in your digestive tract, which leads to gas, bloating and a bunch of other unsavory things that deplete your radiance!

Radiant Secret:
What you eat is an immediate investment on how you feel, a medium investment on how you look, and a long-term investment on your health.

2) Slow Down to Rise Up

IMG_2465 (2)You are meant to move, but the difference between moving to keep busy and moving to feel alive is dramatic.

Our culture glorifies busy, but packed calendars and contiguous planning carry the very dense (masculine) vibration of “doing” rather than the feminine frequency of simply “being”. Running masculine energy through a female body is like pouring beach all over your innate radiance. Not to mention a big obstacle if you want to attract a masculine man.

 

Quick Rule of Radiance:
Moving in ways that deliver you to the present and remind you that that it’s ok to just BE YOU will rejuvenate your radiance immediately. Swaying your hips to music (in a figure 8-like motion) delivers you to your sexy, sensual self. Yoga, the practice of stillness within movement, returns you to your breath which is your foundation for calm in spite of any challenges you are facing in your life. Being allows you to vibrate in the soft openness of your innate femininity.

Radiant Secret:
You do not need to prove or earn your value each day by having a long list of things that you’ve checked done. You are a human being! Which means you have value just because you exist.

3) Be the Beginner

IMG_2456 2I grew up believing you were either genetically blessed with the creative gene or you weren’t. I didn’t understand that I was unconsciously freezing myself out of this deeply fulfilling, soul affirming, radiance generating part of myself

Turns out creativity is an energy that’s a natural part of being human. So when we have I’m not good/talented/experienced enough (dense) thoughts, we block this light creative energy from being expressed.

Usually this is so unconscious, it shows up as a general apathy for creating things like: art, music, dance, writing, poetry… Paper Mache, whatever it is.

Quick Rule of Radiance:
Creative passion is the lifeblood of the human experience. Inspiration connects you to who you are and why you are here. In moments of inspiration, sadness and past regrets fall away, while fear and anxiety for the future vanish. It is enough in that moment and so are you. This is a superfood elixir for your radiance. Without knowing this magical part of yourself, your life is rampant with fear and exhaustion as you tirelessly search for meaning and fulfillment everywhere except for where it really lives (in your passionate heart).

Radiant Secret:
You don’t need to be perfect to participate. Your radiance doesn’t care. You just need to give yourself permission to be the beginner; the beginner isn’t supposed to know anything anyway, so as the beginner you can never fail. It’s the ULTIMATE FREEDOM.

The beginner’s mind returns you wonder and joy… the epitome of a light-hearted, radiant woman.

4) Radical Personal Responsibility

IMG_2457Your information feeds your beliefs and your beliefs feed your thoughts and your thoughts either feed or deplete your radiance.

The thoughts inside your head are yours. That’s obvious. Or are they? Well, not exactly. You’ve actually been accepting “programming” from the day you were born from those who have come before you, and those around you. Things like, boys should wear blue and girls should wear pink to believing you need to live in a certain zip code, drive a certain car, affiliate with a certain political party, and so on.

Are there any thoughts you maybe agreed to a kid that aren’t serving you?
Are there any messages you received about you that aren’t serving your highest good?

If you believe you can’t do it, or believe you can, you are correct. EVERYTHING in your life is a reflection of your inner world.

Quick Rule of Radiance:
Taking personal responsibility for every single thing in your life— the good, the bad and downright crazy is not only utterly sexy, but the fast track to all things good. Ask yourself, why did I create this? And then find the gift. The gift is a shift in perspective, a recognition, or a moment of clarity that leads to greater compassion for yourself and others. This allows you to vibrate in a gratitude which is like vitamins for your radiance.

Radical Radiant Ritual:
For the next 21 days (and hopefully beyond) first thing in the morning when you wake, write down 10 things that you have gratitude for and why. The reticular activating system in the brain magnifies whatever gets attention, or in other words whatever you focus to grows. 

Radiant Secret:
Gratitude is the most powerful emotion for attracting abundance into your life. The universe is not some benevolent being that grants some blessings and others hardship. It is simply a mirror that boomerangs back to you the energy you are putting out.

5) Make Space

IMG_2863At your deepest core, you want to be fully seen for you are and loved for what is seen. Every human does. Having a rainbow of relationships that inspire, honor and nurture your authentic self is essential for your radiance. Unless you feel safe to be vulnerable in your relationships, you are performing on some level. This is a stress level that releases cortisol, compromises adrenal function and depletes you.

Quick Rule of Radiance:
Take an inventory on the everyone in your life. Are those closest to you people who:

  • Really have your back?
  • That you can call up and laugh and have fun with?
  • That you totally be yourself with?
  • That inspire you?
  • That encourage you?

Radiant Secret:
Your radiance has no time for toxic people that don’t make you feel seen and loved. When you let go, you make space for new people that share your present time alignment to enter your life.

6. Become BeautyFULL

IMG_6617 (1)Contrary to what the beauty industry would like you to believe, radiance can’t be applied, plumped, implanted or frozen. Now, please know, I’m in full support of you doing whatever makes you feel good. Truly. It’s just those things don’t have anything to do with that alluring energy that commands every head to whip around the moment you walk into a room.

Shining in the full expression of your beauty starts with accepting yourself—even with your flaws. Radiant beauty blooms when you celebrate your uniqueness, your spirit, and humor.

Quick Rule of Radiance:
-Others will adore you to the degree you adore yourself.
-Others will find you captivating to the degree you captivate yourself.
-Others will desire connection with you to the degree you are connected to yourself.

When you are feelin yourself, go out and share it with the world. Have a good flirt! Even when you aren’t feeling yourself, go have a flirt! Flirting is utterly empowering. Will you get many invitations? I’m sure you will. But that isn’t actually the goal. It’s purely for your pleasure and enjoyment. So next time you see the UPS delivery guy, the doorman, or the guy who collects your ticket on the train, think of something you delight in about yourself and flirt up a storm. Try and it see how radiantly alive you become!

Radiant Secret:
When you are lit up by yourself, your life and your passions it is physically, spiritually, universally, cosmically impossible for others to not be drawn to that light. Promise.

Xo,
Emily
