Well ladies, we are the playful spirits of the world! If we are not engaging, enticing, alluring ourselves and others in this way, we are not engaging our true essence of being a woman! Youthfulness, flexibility, communication, beauty passion and charm are the qualities of woman in the yoga system. The petals of the Svathishana they are called, our area of creativity, where the womb and kidneys are housed. If we do not engage in these fluid, playful ways, our health will suffer for the energy in this area will get blocked.
This nonfluid way of our lives in the current society, creates all kinds of health issues in our body. Flowing is a key word about woman. We have a cycle which is rhythmic, cyclical, fluid. We do not realize what this tells us of ourselves. We are the negotiators, the flexors in most all situations. We are the nourishers, the gatherers, the ones who bring in fun and play to life. We are not moving about in a flowing way, our body is designed to operate best when it is flowing, at a slower pace where connection and communicaton can occur. We are using the pace of men, marching. Thus we have adrenal burn out, cortisol and no oxytocin which is our healer.
I encourage you to seek out this woman in you, your playful spirit. Consider when a group of woman or girls gather. What is happening? Playful, giggles, chatter, dancing, fun, food, laughter, support, silliness. Yes for these are the healing powers of woman. We are acting out the traits of the svadisthana chakra! Communicating with each other, being flexible together, acting youthful, sharing our passions, feeling beautiful and often helping each other to be that, and being our charming girly self. It is no accident that we have the children and usually raise them. For we are youthul and childlike in our essence and it is good we are this way.
Embrace these qualities in yourself and cultivate them daily. It is not hard for us to be healthful as woman. We just do the things that are natural to us. We enjoy them. Our world has kicked these ideas out of our everyday life and it is killing us and those around us. Know these 6 qualities of yourself as the power of woman. Spend time each day using them in consciousness. Pull them in your life in whatever way you can. This creates relaxation, oxytocin, the parasympathetic nervous system to engage and heal our body. You will gain such health and peace of mind by riding in this flowing way. It is who we are. It is easy to be a woman for we are them. We just need to embrace our natural ways and live more fully in our beauty!
Play with life!
