How are you?
I wanted to ask you a favour.
I’d like to ask you to decide if you still want to receive emails from me? And, if not, can you please scroll down to the end of this email and click the Unsubscribe link.
I promise I won’t take it personally and I won’t be offended. I’ll still love you!
Don’t get me wrong, I’d LOVE you to stay. You’re important to me! I put a lot of time and thought into writing you these emails, so whilst this call to action may seem counter intuitive there’s a couple of reasons your choice to stay or go matters.
Firstly, life means growth. Things change and maybe what Dragonfly has to offer moving forward doesn’t interest you.
As mentioned in my previous email, I’d Rather Be Whole then Perfect, Ron and I have joined forces to collaborate on some new offerings for 2021. This is because we have complementary skill sets that when joined together create something greater, I like to call it the Alchemy of Yin and Yang. I asked Ron if he’d write something for this email but he wasn’t comfortable with this. He pointed out that you might not like him appearing in your Inbox without consent and he makes a great point.
And that brings me to the second reason.
I believe one of the most important skills needed to meet the challenges coming in 2021 is BOUNDARIES.
So when I ask you to decide whether you want to keep receiving emails from me (and this may include input from Ron’s perspective as a Life Coach) or not, what I’m actually offering is an opportunity to practice asserting your boundaries.
One of the things I believe is really important when working with clients – especially women – is reinforcing the mindset of personal SOVEREIGNTY. What this means is acknowledging you’re the creator of your own reality and not a victim of your own life circumstances. You’re powerful.
Asserting personal boundaries can be particularly scary for women because historically women have not had personal authority or body autonomy. Women were the property of their father or husband. Believe it or not, it wasn’t until 1981 in Australia that rape in marriage became a criminal act! I’m sharing this tidbit of info not to trigger you but to give context as to WHY it can be so hard for women to assert personal boundaries and authority. 1981 was only forty years ago. That’s only 40 years to break free from thousands of years of cultural programming.
And whether we like it or not, this is the same level of consciousness from which the Western medical model – including mainstream birthing practices – has evolved.
So if you find it hard to say no, to speak up yourself, hate having to assert yourself or rock the boat in order to step into your own sovereign power then there’s good reason for this. If you feel disconnected from your body, fear trusting your intuition, or feel crippled into paralysis at the thought of coming up against conflict it makes sense. Having worked with thousands of women over the years, I assure you you’re not alone.
Now here’s the thing I’d really love you to know about boundaries because it’s a game changer: Your ability to assert healthy boundaries depends on BEING IN YOUR BODY.
This is because in order to have BOUNDARIES you must have a CENTRE, and your centre isn’t found in your head it’s located in your body.
This is where embodiment practices are a game changer. Learning how to get out of your head and into your body connects you to the fullness of your power, your inner authority.
Your ‘centre’ corresponds not only to your personal power and authority, but also your sense of self and self worth, self love and the ability to shine the light of your own radiance out into the world. To be the star you are!
To find your centre you have to claim your land, hence the phrase sovereignty. Your ‘land’ being the energetic space you inhabit: your physical body as well as your mental, emotional and spiritual body, all of which makes up ‘you’.
Part of learning what it means to be sovereign is your willingness to wield the SWORD OF DISCERNMENT when you sense something isn’t energetically aligned with your highest good within your physical and energetic space. This may be internal such as a behaviour pattern, unconscious belief or self sabotaging thoughts, or external influences such as other people, the media, social and cultural messaging, or simply the emails you receive in your Inbox. This also includes awareness of your body autonomy and ability to say no to anything that that feels like a violation to your sacred land.
It’s your land! Your body! Your energetic space.
The only true way to know if something’s right for YOU is by monitoring how you feel in your BODY.
Does it feel good? Does it create feelings of spaciousness? Ease? Flow? Do you know the signals your body sends when something is right for you and when it’s not? Do you find yourself feeling tense? Perhaps a gripping in your stomach or a clenching in your jaw? Do you follow this guidance? Do you ignore it?
Sovereignty is claiming your power to assert your boundaries and taking responsibility for your energetic space. Every time you turn your attention to something it amplifies. You have the power to choose what you want to amplify in your life. Clarity and discernment are key to being a conscious co-creator of your life.
So, please tune in and listen and give yourself full permission to wield the sword. Dragonfly represents a vibrational frequency that may not be a match to you and you may not want to amplify this frequency. That’s ok. Learning how to cut away the old is one of the most powerful ways you create energetic space to let in more of what you do want to amplify in your life.
On the other hand, if you resonate with the Dragonfly frequency then it’s exciting to have you here! This is the place to be if you want to step out of being a passive observer in your own life and into the power of your own sovereignty.
What Ron and I want you to know is we don’t take being invited into your Inbox lightly. We don’t want to sell you stuff you don’t need or trespass on your energetic space without adding value to your life.
One is a little taste of the feminine path to spirituality through embodiment (Earth), the other represents the masculine path to spirituality (Heaven). See if you can feel the difference.
Either practice is great in it’s own right. We personally use these all the time. But if you want to go next level – the Alchemical Union of Yin and Yang, Heaven and Earth – set aside an hour and by journeying down and in with Queen/ King Pose (always follow the Yin!) before journeying up and out with You are A Star. Don’t fall asleep!
Remember, the magic doesn’t happen by reading about it. The power is the moment you step in and do the thing. All you need do is click the images and you’ll be directed to a Dropbox account where you can download the files.
We hope you enjoy and would love to hear from your experience.
Peta & Ron
