You get out what you put in - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

What’s the difference between masculine and feminine presence?

What's the difference between Masculine & Feminine Presence? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stOne of the most important things when you’re interacting with people is to be present.

Whether it’s at work, with friends, family or your intimate partner, everyone wants you to be present with them.

In this world of constant distraction it’s unusual for someone to be completely and totally present without something being able to draw their attention away…whether it’s a phone, a laptop, a blackberry…it’s easy for something to beep and our presence to disappear.

So we want to know how we can bring more of our presence to other people, but are you aware that there’s a difference between masculine presence and feminine presence?

I’ve never heard anyone else sharing about this, so I’m really excited to be telling you about it today…

You get out what you put in - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stIt’s a concept that we’re all familiar with, we’ve heard it a hundred times…

…you get out what you put in.

We all know it…but do you always remember it?

I know that for me, I had an experience last year that took my understanding of it to a whole new level.

…not only that, but it also helped me to understand a new distinction.

It’s the difference that makes the difference, the missing piece that means that you get out ten times what you put in.

…and today I want to share it with you.

So what’s the difference that makes the difference?

Do you celebrate all the little things?

Do you celebrate every little thing? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stSo this Christmas I got to spend some great time with my family.

It’s one of my favourite times of the year, and getting to spend it with the people that I love most is wonderful.

One of the best things about this Christmas was getting to spend it with my 18 month old nephew.

Last year he was a little young in order to be able to really enjoy all the Christmas fun, so it was great this year to have him running around making the most of the festivities.

We baked together, he helped unwrap all the Christmas presents, we wore silly santa hats.

But what was really beautiful was that he taught me such an important lesson…and today I want to share this lesson with you.

The Feel Good Jar - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

My confession about the feel good jar…

The Feel Good Jar - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stThis time last year, I shared a video with you about how to feel more feminine in 2013, and in I talked to you about the concept of the feel good jar.

The feel good jar is basically a jar which sits somewhere prominent in your home and when something that you’re grateful for, or want to celebrate, or just simply makes you feel good happens, you write it on a little note and put it into the feel good jar.

Throughout the year the notes stack up, and then at the end of the year (or the beginning of the next) you get to open up the jar, and read, relive and enjoy all of the best moments from the previous year.

So I wanted to share with you today my experience of the feel good jar over the last year…including a confession which actually turned out to be very revealing…

Do you struggle with meditation? Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

Do you struggle with meditation?

Do you struggle with meditation? Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stGasp! I did it.

I used the “M” word.

It’s a word I’ve been careful to avoid since launching Feminine 1st two years ago…because it’s a word that can really alienate people.

“Meditation”

When you use the “M” word, it can provoke a really strong reaction.

Some people think that it’s “woo woo” and not for them, some people feel that they don’t have the time…some people think that they just simply can’t do it.

When  you look at the definition of meditation it’s literally “to take some time in quiet thought”, so when I’ve talked about meditation, instead I’ve talked about taking quiet time for you, taking time out of the day, creating some space.

What’s the challenge with meditation?

In the past when I’ve tried to meditate, I’ve really struggled.

As women we tend to have a lot on our minds, and finding the ‘quiet’ can be a challenge.

I’ve enjoyed it when I was able to listen to a guided meditation which has allowed me to focus on something other than the stuff in my head and has literally ‘guided’ me through the process.

But silent meditation has been a real challenge.

So on a recent trip away with a friend of mine I was delighted to have a real ‘breakthrough’ around meditation…and how to do it in a way that works for me…and I wanted to share it with you to help you find a way that works for you too…

A different way to review the year…

A Different Way To Review the Year  - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

At the end of one year and the beginning of the next we tend to look back and review the year that has passed.

The funny thing about doing this is that this can both work for us and against us.

Sometimes it can lift our spirits.

More often than not it can lead us to focus on what hasn’t happened, what hasn’t worked, and what we haven’t got.

So this year I would like to invite you to review the year gone passed in a new way…

The Feminine Way to Enjoy Christmas…

The Feminine Way to Enjoy Christmas, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stChristmas is one of my favourite times of the year.

The lights are sparkling, the tree is up…it can be truly magical.

As feminine women it can be a great time of year…we can indulge the playful, childlike side of the feminine, we can connect with people who we maybe don’t see as often throughout the year and enjoy feeling inspired by the festive season.

I love to indulge my creative feminine side at this time of year…whether it’s being creative with Christmas gift ideas or having fun in the kitchen.

But the challenge these days is that Christmas isn’t all fun and games.

In fact, Christmas can often be very very stressful.

The Christmas stress-fest!

We’ve all seen it, we’ve all probably done it…

We’ve let the pressure of a ‘perfect’ Christmas take over our lives, and have gone spiralling down into stress-central in the run up to Christmas…so much so that by the time you get to the actual day you’re run down, exhausted and just want it to be over.

But it doesn’t have to be that way…

Is it possible to have a Feminine Christmas?

We often do Christmas in this stressed manner, because we don’t know another way of doing it…and because everyone around us is doing the same thing, we assume it’s ‘normal’.

But there is another way….we’re just not used to seeing it.

So today I want to share with you some ideas and suggestions for a more Feminine way to enjoy the Festive season, that could completely change your experience of Christmas, if you’re willing to have a play with it…

It's not just about increasing your feminine, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

It’s not just about increasing our feminine…

It's not just about increasing your feminine, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stIf you’re someone like me who spent a lot of your life in a very masculine state (possibly without ever knowing it), when you first find out more about the masculine / feminine dynamic it is usual to focus on how you can increase your connection to your femininity.

Over the last few weeks we’ve been going through each of the different aspects of the feminine, looking at each of them individually and finding out more about how to find your unique expression of them.

As we know, your feminine is as unique as you are, so what flow, or inspiration, or intuition means, feels and looks like to you could be completely different to someone else’s.

 

It’s not all about the feminine

The thing is that it’s easy in this situation to make our masculine traits ‘wrong’ or to think that we shouldn’t be using them.

But we all have both masculine and feminine inside us for a reason.

Although we all have one of these towards which we ‘tend’…that doesn’t mean that the other one isn’t important.

It’s about finding the balance that is right for you.

…and when it is about the feminine, are you forgetting something?

But even when we are focusing our feminine we sometimes we forget one of the most important areas.

In fact, I don’t believe I’ve seen an article anywhere about what I’m sharing with you today, when it comes to looking at femininity and masculinity.

But without it, the other aspects will be less effective…or worse, won’t work at all…

Aspects of the Feminine, E - Energy, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

Aspects of the feminine…it’s time to add some energy!

Aspects of the Feminine, E - Energy, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stToday marks the end of our deep dive into the different aspects of the feminine…we’ve covered Flow, Emotional Connection, Magic, Inspiration, Nurturing, Intuition and natural.

And not only do we get to complete our understanding on the elements of the feminine…

….but we also get to dispel one of the common myths about femininity.

Because there are a lot of misperceptions and misunderstanding about the feminine…things that people believe it is, things that people believe it isn’t…and they cause a lot of confusion when we start to focus on our femininity and how we can connect more to it.

 

What feminine is, and isn’t…

A lot of people when they think of the word feminine call some words and images to mind like weak, submissive, compliant, servitude, domesticity…the list goes on.

The trouble is that none of these words have anything to do with femininity, and don’t represent what the word feminine really means.

Femininity has nothing to do with being ‘less than’…it also doesn’t have anything to do with ‘more than’…we all have both masculine and feminine inside us, and neither is any better or worse, stronger or weaker, more or less powerful than the other.  They are equal, and opposite to each other.

The feminine is supercharged…

So when we talk about femininity, many people believe that we’re talking about passivity…when nothing could be further from the truth.

The final aspect of the feminine that we’re looking at a little deeper today is energy…and the feminine is all about energy.

The feminine has a lot of different types of energy in it…passion, calm, excitement, playfulness..and we experience the full spectrum of emotions and the energy that they bring too.

So today I want to share with you how you can connect in more with the different aspects of energy in your feminine…

Aspects of the Feminine, N - Natural, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

Aspects of the feminine…it’s all natural

Aspects of the Feminine, N - Natural, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stWe’re now nearing the end of our deep dive into the different aspects of the feminine, as this week is our penultimate aspect.

We’ve already looked at Flow, Emotional Connection, Magic, Inspiration, Nurturing and Intuition…and today we focus on one of the most important aspects.

This is what I would describe as the foundational element of the feminine.

All of the other aspects and traits that we’ve talked about need to originate here otherwise they won’t have the desired effect.

 

To find your feminine you need to be real…

This week we’re looking at the second N in FEMININE, which is all about being natural.

What do we mean by being natural?

Being natural is all about being real, being authentic, being true to yourself.

…and as I said, this is the foundational element of the feminine…all of the other aspects need to come from an authentic, real and natural place otherwise they won’t be effective.

There’s nothing worse than fake feminine…

We’ve spoken about masculine masks in the past, and ‘fake feminine’ or putting a feminine mask on can be just as problematic.

When we take on the feminine aspects, without them being real, it just becomes more of a burden.

It becomes easy and enjoyable when it’s authentic, coming from the inside out…but when it just becomes masks on top of masks it can feel draining and cause us more harm than good.

So today I want to share with you not only how to be more natural with your femininity and tap into your intuition, but also an incredibly important learning that I had around intuition that could change how you view it completely…
