Ever hear the phrase “fake it ’till you make it”?
I often send out tips and “homework” to my readers; things to practice and perfect. But I´ve gotten emails from women who worry that the “moves” will feel artificial.
And I’ve gotta admit, there have been times when I would stand in front of the mirror practicing steps and stances, trying on smiles and gazes…and feeling a little ridiculous.
But you know what? The more I put carried myself as though I was a strong, confident and sexy women…the more I believed it! I changed how I perceived myself from the outside in, and you can too. The trick is to practice over and over until you begin to believe it yourself.
So yes, admittedly, the exercises might feel choreographed, and even awkward at first. I challenge you to push through those moments, to let go and trust in these exercises – and in me — to guide your body to experience something you were meant to feel.
Be compassionate with yourself for making this effort; it´s not unusual to feel very disconnected from your sensual side at first, but remember that you are bridging that gap between your body and your spirit. It will come in time, I promise. Your body will awaken, and you´ll feel your spirit expand.
