Redefining Consistency as a WOMXN

Redefining Consistency as a WOMXN

In our industry, we are often told “consistency” is KEY to building trust with your community.

You must post 1 x a day on Instagram.
You must send a newsletter once a week.
You must launch the same shit at the same time each year.

The problem with this statement is that it causes immense pressure on every entrepreneur to show up ALL the time – no matter what.

And if they don’t, it assumes that they are somehow not trustworthy and not deserving of their clients trust… code word -> their clients’ money.

I call bullshit.

And I say I want no part in this rhetoric.

Part of why I decided to run my own business was to free myself from:

  • The Rules
  • The “Should”s
  • The Patriarchal Standards
  • The Capitalistic Standards
  • The inhumanity of never-ending productiveness
  • And the complete disregard of feminine cycles in our bodies.

I would like to redefine “Consistency.”

I would like to offer a version of consistency where I show up consistently as a WOMXN!

And I am consistently honoring my cycles.

A female body resides in 4 different hormonal bodies PER MONTH!

Each week, her hormone levels allow her to be a genius at different things.

Instead of being a part of the old rhetoric, I plan to embody the feminine leader that shows up consistently within her cycles.

Let’s look at my friendships in my life. Every woman in my life at this point understands that canceling because I am bleeding or texting back that I am under-resourced does not mean I am not trustable or that I love them any less. It simply demonstrates that I am loving me as well.

Both can exist.

You don’t have to sacrifice your own needs to show up consistently for your community and clients.

This is the equivalent of being in a codependent relationship.

Part of freeing the feminine body of oppression means allowing her to ebb and flow.

And part of being a feminine leader means normalizing that we are cyclical beings, of nature…

And that love can be consistent in both action and inaction, in both outward communication and inward introspection.

I argue we are all consistent. Consistent in honoring ourselves. Which means consistent in honoring YOU.

Being that we are at the beginning of a new year, I wanted to let you know of a few things you can depend on me for in my own cyclical consistency:

  1. Moving forward, the intention is set to send ONE main newsletter out a month that offers you all my blog posts of the month plus awesome events & podcasts I want you to know about! I personally don’t love getting TONS of emails from one mailing list and prefer a magazine-style monthly box. That’s what we are working towards. The only exceptions will be when I’m launching a program or when I am suddenly overtaken by something I MUST tell you about RIGHT now! Lol..
  2. Last year, Embody spent a lot of time getting clarity on what our community guidelines are and what we are devoted to as a family & community with regards to diversity & inclusion. You can read about that here.
  3. My intention is always to offer sensual delights in different forms in your inbox. Poems, Musings, Sonic Experiences, Juicy Conversations and inspiring collaborations. Just like opening a box of chocolates, I invite an experience of surprise and delight, and hope my letter to you keeps you connected to the magic in the mundane and the deep love in your heart.

I will be putting more love and care into my newsletter as I slowly work on releasing my own codependent relationship with the Z*ckerburg Empire.

I hope you stay for the delights, and if you are no longer feeling resonant with my work, I wholeheartedly urge you to declutter. It can feel amazing!

I love you all. Thank you for being here.

Embody Teacher Feature – Lindsey

Embody Teacher Feature – Lindsey

Each month we feature one of our Embody Teachers. This month is Lindsey Winkler!

Lindsey teaches classes in Louisville, KY.

Lindsey Winkler has been a pilates instructor since 2011. Her love and passion has been to help her clients move from the inside out and have a deeper understanding of body awareness. She has also been on her own healing journey since her early twenties. It wasn’t until she started dabbling with other healing modalities that Embody came into her life. All the “hard work” she had been doing to heal fell away when she started to dance away the stuck emotions that couldn’t be reached or expressed through words.

Lindsey believes that the internal wisdom of our body knows the way to healing. A dancer at heart. Lindsey likes to live her life like she’s dancing in the streets. She is thrilled to offer Embody to help empower, heal, transform, and expand more openness in the lives and bodies of womxn in her community of Louisville, Ky.

For information on Lindsey’s classes in Louisville, check out @pilates.louisville.

The Magnetism Myth

The Magnetism Myth

One of the most powerful and moving memories I have is watching a woman in my sensual movement class take her entire 3:30 minute dance to move her fingers from her ankles to her knee.

This was the entire dance.

Her taking her time to just feel herself deeply.

I had never been more mesmerized.

It was in that dark-lit studio 10 years ago that I learned one of the most important lessons about the feminine.

The most magnetic force in the universe is SLOW.

Slower than you think. More Indulgent. More Juicy. More Luxurious.

I could not take my eyes off of her. No one in the class could.

She could have filled her 3 minutes with all sorts of floor work and pole tricks.

Instead, she just got really slow and felt herself.

And the entire room was suddenly right there with her. Fully attentive. Sucked in. Magnetized.

The same exact principle applies to making money.

And running your business.

We keep thinking we need to shove in all the things into our “3 minutes”. Start a podcast, post on insta every day, write a newsletter once a week, run those FB ads, create that masterclass… and the list goes on.

And yet the most magnetic, the most potent, the most powerful force is the feminine slowing the fuck down and deeply feeling.

And somehow, we have allowed the patriarchy and the bro marketing paradigm to convince us otherwise.

Womxn… it’s time we spearheaded a new feminine paradigm of leadership. 
One that allows for the doing and the feeling.
One that creates spaces for the slow, luxurious yumminess of a 3-minute stretch
… on your terms.

This woman followed what her body wanted.
This was her truth.
And her truth was absolutely the biggest gift she could have offered us (and herself) in that moment.
It enriched the moment.
It enriched her cells.
And It enriched my life.

What if you ran your business this way?
What if your entire Monday was a delicious dance?
What if your whole 2021 plan felt like a deep, spacious inhale?
And what if your to-do list was dominated by your desires?

2 more spots left in the Embody Certification. We are doing it on our terms. 

We begin in a few weeks. The deadline to apply is the end of this week – January 17th.
