Give Your Lover Three Wishes

Related to the New and Improved, Sensuous You … Tell your Lover about your Quest to become more in touch with your Sensuous Self.  Explain that you want to give him Three Wishes that are related to your becoming more Sensuous and Sexy. You may need to give him a few examples to help him get started.       
There are five senses, so you should give him at least one example for each. Here are a few ideas to help you get started, but the possibilities are endless.

Sight – You could dress in Sensuous, Sexy clothes . . . or role-play with costumes . . . or maybe look at Erotic Drawings together.  

Touch – You could brainstorm with him about ways that he’d like to be touched . . . or take a soapy, slippery shower together . . . or demonstrate to him… how you like to be touched.

Smell – You could buy a new perfume . . . or wear no perfume at all . . . or cook a pie with cinnamon and vanilla (both are aphrodisiacs to men).  

Hearing – You could watch sexy, music videos together . . . or you could listen to music to to find the best music for dancing or having sex together . . . or you could read a sexy story to him in a sultry voice.  

Taste –You could create a tasting experience by assembling a variety of items, like honey, maple syrup, strawberry, or chocolate syrup, and whipped cream to discover which one tastes best when licked off of your lover’s body, or your own.         

You could also explain how you are working on your Sensuality, your Imagination, and your Creativity, as it relates to Sex, and your overall Health Goals. Tell him that these are just a few suggestions.  Before he makes his Three Wishes, you may want to tell him that you retain the right to veto any idea …but that you will try to keep an open mind. You will probably find that all of this talk about Sensuality and Sexuality will lead to other things.  So, remember to be playful and have fun!  

Until later,

Experience Real Perfume Every Day!

Perfume can be nice, but natural fragrances are more gentle to our senses. Flowers are a natural source of real perfume.  In my opinion, the best way to experience real perfume every day is to surround yourself with real flowers. Grow or buy flowers, so that you have some real perfume in your life every day. In your garden, try to include flowers that are known for their fragrance. Some of the sweetest-smelling flowers include Lilac, Roses, Hyacinth, Lilies, Lavender, Dianthus, Sweet Peas, and Phlox.  Once they start blooming, be sure to pick a few for your home and office every day. Picking flowers actually stimulates the plant to put out more flowers.     
Growing flowers in containers is another way to add natural perfume to your life, and it’s not that complicated. Most summer annuals and tropical plants will grow on a sunny window sill, or on your porch. Citrus trees do well in containers, and lemon trees are especially beautiful. Few flowers smell as sweet as lemon blossoms. You can also grow sweet-smelling herbs, like lemon balm or basil. Basil roots in water, and can be grown in water. All you have to do is add some water every other day and a little fertilizer weekly. Both basil and lemon balm will also grow nicely in containers in a south-facing, sunny window in your home. Exceptionally fragrant indoor plants include Citrus, Jasmine, and Gardenia.      
You may want to stop by your local florist, and pick up a few flowers. Just visiting a Flower Shop can give you a real perfume experience. Tell the floral designer that you are looking for the most fragrant flowers. Be sure to smell them before you buy, because although they may be fragrant, they may not be pleasing to you.      Flowers tap into the emotional center of the brain. What might smell nice to one person, may remind another of something unpleasant. My favorite sweet-smelling, cut flowers are Freesia, Stock, and some varieties of Roses. Buying flowers for yourself is a Sensuous Activity! You don’t need to wait for a special occasion, or someone else to buy them for you. . . . Put it on your list of things to do to become a more Sensuous Woman. Adding flowers into your life on a daily basis will soothe your senses, and help you get more in touch with your Sensuous Self. 

Don’t forget to put a new Fridge Checklist on your Fridge (see previous Post) it will help you stay motivated every day.
Until later,

Almost Famous Quotes

“The key to Your Sensuous Self is your “Creative Imagination”. If you maintain a strong connection to your Creative Imagination… You will always be a Sensuous Woman”…” Peggy Durham
Sensuous Life Coach

I was writing a Creative Imagination exercise for my “Be Your Own Sensuous Life Coach” Meetup next week when my lover brought me breakfast out in my garden. I had just imagined something just like that 🙂

Power up your Metabolism ~”The Everything Shake”

Create your own personal Everything Shake ! Drinking one of these shakes everyday will help you in a variety of ways. This is a great alternative especially when you are too busy to fix breakfast.  I feel like it keeps my body humming smoothly, reduces food cravings and keeps my weight down without really trying. Also, having a high protein breakfast gets my metabolism fired up for the day… And, no matter what else I do that day I feel like I’ve improved my nutrition for the day if I start my day with an Everything Shake. It’s always one of the things listed on my Fridge Checklist! Your Shake can be made in a variety of ways depending on your preferences. You can choose a protein powder that is either vegan protein or whey. Currently my favorite protein powder is Arbonne’s Vegan Protein Powder* made with rice, cranberry and pea protein. It contains 20 grams of protein, 20 vitamins and minerals, has a low glycemic index and is gluten free.  To find a Protein Powder that meets your needs, just read the labels. I always prefer stevia as the sweetener. Do not use juice in your shake as the main liquid. It’s just too high in sugar.                                     

   Peggy’s Favorite “Everything Shake”
 Combine 1 – 2 scoops of  Arbonne Protein Shake Mix in blender with  1 1/2 cups soy, almond or skim milk (calcium), 1/4- 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (antioxidants), 1/2 Tbsp Flaxseed Oil (anti inflammatory), 1/2 -1 tsp psyllium seed fiber (regulates digestive system) and a few ice cubes. I also add a probiotic to improve my immune function. The best probiotic is  bacillus coagulans found in Arbonne’s Digestion Plus  or in a product called Digestive Advantage. Create a shake that you love by using your favorite fruit and if you like  you can add a few spinach leaves for additional nutrition.  Have fun and use your imagination to create your own personal  “Everything Shake” with all of your personal favorites . Add it to your Fridge Checklist to help you improve your Health and Well Being  every day! And that is vital to becoming a Sensuous woman.

Arbonne Shake mix can be found at HealthandWellnessLifeCoach.MyArbonne.com

Go out in the Rain and get Wet!

wpid-Rain.jpgGo out in the Rain and get Wet! On a warm Summer night, when it’s Raining … figure out a way to get out in Rain as naked as possible. It’s especially fun if you do this when it is Raining very hard. So the next time you hear a hard Rain, run outside so you don’t miss it. (Don’t go out in a thunder and lightning storm …of course.) Once you are outside remove all remaining clothes…if possible Then, as you are standing in Nature’s Shower run your hands all over your body to enjoy how silky your skin feels covered in raindrops. After the hard Rain slows down, find a comfortable place to sit. Spend some time becoming aware of how Nature enjoys the Rain. Notice how the rain drops hit the petals of a flower or fall onto leaves and gently masssages them. Breathe in the cooler, cleaner air and feel the overall “vibe” that surrounds you. . You can almost see the plants growing as the rain washes over them. You may notice that Colors are brighter and more vibrant. When the Rain stops you may become aware of  how calm and peaceful it feels. The world seems more relaxed and pure. It’s as if the plants and flowers are relaxing after their wild Sensuous experience with the Rain. When you are finished with your wild naked experience with the Rain, run into the house and turn on a Hot Shower. Climb into the shower as soon as it’s warm or for a different Sensuous experience just get into it when you first turn it on… As the shower washes over you can feel the heat of it pouring into your body. Use your favorite body products that are fragrant with natural flower essences. Stay as long as you like enjoying your shower, then wrap yourself up in a big fluffy towel or robe. Have a hot cup of tea and sit in a Sensuous Space and make a few notes in  your journal about your Sensuous Experience. You may also want to make a note of any messages that you may have recieved from your Inner Wisdom. Be sure to take advantage of hard Rain whenever you can to enjoy another Sensuous Experience with Nature.

Until next time,

The Art of Living in the Now

The past is gone, and the future is not yet here.  The only thing that you really have is the Now.This moment, and in every moment, you have the opportunity to be fully present.  Becoming more aware, and learning how to be present in each moment will help you stay in touch with your Inner Wisdom and Sensuous Self.  In every moment, you have a choice to go through it mindlessly, on autopilot, or to be fully present, experiencing the Now.  

There are times when we are brought into the moment very quickly and dramatically, and we experience the Now.  A few examples that come to mind are when a baby is born, when someone dies, or even when you are driving your car mindlessly, then suddenly slam on the brakes to avoid hitting the car in front of you.  But, there are easier and more subtle ways to experience the Now in everyday Life.    

Increasing your Awareness is key to Experiencing the Now.  In Sullins Stuart’s Book “Living in Conscious Harmony: A Spiritual Guide to being in the Now,” he calls this “Intentional Awareness.”  Intentional Awareness means bringing your Awareness fully to whatever you are doing in each moment.  As you are reading this blog, are you fully present in this moment, or is your mind dwelling in the past, or projecting into the future?  Living in the Now means engaging all of your Senses in this moment, and every moment.  Right now, as you stare at your computer, use your Senses to become aware of your surroundings.  Are you sitting in a chair?  Is the chair comfortable?  Is it hard or soft?  Are you sitting with good posture, or are you straining your neck or shoulders?  If you are drinking something . . . is it hot or cold?  Is your environment warm or cool?  Are you aware of any sounds or smells around you?  As I ask you these questions, your mind will generate thoughts.  What I am suggesting is to let go of these thoughts about the Now.  Let go of judgments, analysis, and expectations about what you are experiencing, and Just Experience the Now . . . with all of your Senses.  You will become more connected to your Inner Wisdom and Sensuous Self when you experience the Now!

 Living in the Now is a worthy aspiration.  It can help us avoid ruminating about the past, or attempting to predict the future.  The only thing that is real is the Now, one moment at a time.   Practice Intentional Awareness whenever you can.  Fully engage in all of your experiences with all of your Senses, and you will gain insights about Yourself, and the Universe without really trying at all.  Each and every moment offers you a new opportunity to practice.

  “We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.”                       – Marie B. Ray

Vibrate with the Universe … Make Noise !

When you are having fun… make noise! I’m thinking of Sex and Massage as I write this because for most people noise is a natural part of expressing Sensuous and Sexual activites. The next time that you are having Sex or getting a Massage be sure to take deep breaths and let Sound happen. You may notice that you find yourself trying to control the sound or judge it. This reduces your connection to your Sensuous Self. So… Stop controlling…stop judging… Instead just feel what is going on and let the sound come out as nature intended… Ask your Lover or Massage Person how they feel about someone being noisy or loud.  In most cases I’m sure you will find that being noisy is good and preferred. It lets the other person know what you like, and what you don’t like. Feedback In the form of unsensored expression of sound is an excellent way to ask for what you want and need without saying a word. A person really enjoying themself makes Noise. I also find myself being Noisy when I eat a Sensuous meal. Some meals are just Orgasmic. If you don’t know what I mean… you will when you read my book or a future blog! There are many pleasurable activities that just make you want to let sound out. After a cold swim in a pool or a day of skiing , a hot shower can make you want to moan…so do it. Start to become aware when you censor yourself as it relates to sound.  Of course there are some occasions when you do need to hold back… and that’s understandable.  But for the most part it’s important to let sound out of your body. The vibrations of Sound can be very energizing and healing. So be Noisy whenever you can.

  Singing is also a wonderful way to be Noisy. Sing everyday. My Lover walks around the house making up songs. If you have that talent…use it. If you are shy like me, about singing, do it in the shower, in your car, at home with the stereo playing loudly… or with friends if you are feeling brave.

If singing is not your thing, you could try Chanting. Chanting is amazing with a large group of people or just by yourself. OM is the sound that the Universe vibrates to… So chant it at least 3 times or as often as you wish. To chant OM  take a deep breath and and say Ohhhhhh for most of the breath and them Mmmmm for the ending. The deeper you breathe, the longer you can stretch it out. Breathe deeply again and repeat Ohhhhhh then Mmmmmm. Do this as long as you like and remember that you are vibrating to the sound of the Universe. This is very calming and even more mystical when done with a group of people. You can feel the vibration in the air that surrounds you. The next time you are with a group of friends ask them if they’d like to try to chant the sound the Universe vibrates to… Ok they may think that you are wierd but it is an easy way to see who needs help being Noisy or getting in touch with their Sensuous Self. 😉  You could also share this concept with them and help them get healthier by freeing the Noise that may be stuck inside of them.

To improve your connection to your Sensuous Self, use Sound to connect to your world whenever possible.  And whenever you feel disconnected from the Universe take a deep breath and Ommmmm.

Until next time,
Peggy
