Ask Anne-Marie: How Does The Integration of Feminine Principles Play Into Being an Embodied Leader?

Feminine ways of leading are often ridiculed and diminished, even by those of us who want to embody them! This is the impact of conditioned beliefs and world views of reality. The good news, is that these outdated scripts can all be rewritten. I’ve been on a beautiful and gritty ride as I unravel the stronghold these beliefs have had on my freedom to wholeheartedly express myself and come out of hiding.

Ask Anne-Marie: How Do You Cultivate Emotional Intimacy In Your Relationships?

I like this question because upon contemplation I realize that the experience, need and definition of emotional intimacy is diverse and so very personal. The book “The Five Love Languages” by Dr. Gary Chapman, is one of many avenues to begin this exploration. He suggests there are five areas in which emotional intimacy is built. He suggests that most people lean towards one or two as their primary melting point into emotional connection. However, I was coaching an executive months back and we discovered that her love language is Play.

Ask Anne-Marie: How Do I Rekindle Sexual And Emotional Intimacy With My Husband?

When couples begin to domesticate often the erotic charge can shift and sequence through diminishing cycles. And, from my experience, what also happens is that differences in communication, attachment styles, emotional availability and so on can fog our sexual desire channel too.  It’s a natural place for our mind to wander when we are hungry for something that is not present. The mind is designed to fantasize and point us towards our deeper needs.

May The Bridges We Burn Light The Way

I have been enjoying a rich life as a leadership consultant and executive coach. It’s deeply satisfying and inspiring to participate in a catalytic movement with leaders who want to access their presence and wisdom as the foundation from which they create and lead. I recently took a significant professional (and personal) leap when I launched my new business, Your Erotic Nature. I’m passionate about this because I know what becomes possible when we know how to access our creative life force of erotic aliveness.

Ask Anne-Marie: How Does A Relationship Operate When Each Partner Is In Touch With Self?

To be fully in touch with our “self” is a dynamic and ever-evolving journey. There is no end point to self-discovery and embodiment.  The system in which we create and operate in with our partners, and all the people in our lives, is a manifestation of how we operate within ourselves. No two connections are alike because each person brings their own operating system and beliefs about how a relationship engages and sustains itself.

The Trap of the Self Improvement Campaign

For much of my life I was caught in the web of what I call, ‘The Self-Improvement Campaign’. This ‘campaign’ is the false notion that somehow we are deficient. Therefore, in order to be happy,  successful and belong we have to improve ourselves.  In the process we compare ourselves to others and the ideas of who we think we should be.  What we end up feeling is a disconnect on the inside. The effort to try and improve ourselves feeds the belief that there is something wrong with us in the first place. This belief is simply untrue. The only obstacle we’re bumping into is our belief about ‘who we are’ and how life ‘should’ be.

Have You Fallen in Love with Potential?

Have you ever stayed in a relationship (romantic, work-related or friendship) that didn’t match what you desire in partnership, hoping that it would change because you saw the potential? What happens when we fall in love with the ‘potential’ of someone and forget to pay attention to the reality of the relationship dynamic? In the early stages of lust & fantasy we see what we want to see. Sometimes we even overlook red flags. It’s natural to do this but often an arduous process to unwind when the bubble of our fantasy bursts.
