FEMININE - I - INTUITION - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

Aspects of the feminine…Do you use your intuition?

FEMININE - I - INTUITION - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stSo on our journey into the different aspects of the Feminine so far we’ve covered Flow, Emotional Connection, Magic, Inspiration and Nurturing.

Today we get to look at one of the aspects of the feminine that can cause the most confusion, and be the most challenging to understand and embody.

…but it’s also one of the most powerful aspects of the feminine, and the one that can make the biggest difference to your life when you begin to tap into it.

Today we’re looking at the aspect of intuition.

We’ve all heard of female intuition…

Female intuition is a long debated phenomenon, and one that has been the source of much discussion and even some mockery at times.

We’ve all experienced it at times…

..that little feeling that something is (or isn’t) quite right…

…the small voice inside that is whispering in your ear…

…a sense that is nudging you in a certain direction.

So what is female intuition?

There are a lot of different ideas about female intuition and what it is.

Some believe it’s a supernatural ability that women possess.

Some believe it’s the combination of awareness and experience that is processed so quickly our conscious minds aren’t aware of it.

Some believe it’s due to women’s ability to read emotions through facial expression and body language.

But whatever it is, it’s powerful, and it has the ability to transform your life.

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

FEMININE - N - NURTURING - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

Aspects of the feminine…Are you in touch with your nurturing side?…

FEMININE - N - NURTURING - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stSo we’ve now passed the half way point on our deep dive into the different aspects of the Feminine…

We’ve looked at Flow, Emotional Connection, Magic, and Inspiration…and today we look at the first N…Nurturing.

Nurturing is fundamental to the feminine…but quite often it’s not a quality that a lot of women connect with or relate too..mainly because nurturing has a bit of a bad rap.

When people think about nurturing they tend to bring to mind a fussy mother trying to take over or baby someone…but real nurturing is nothing like that.

We’re born to be nurturing…

As women we’re designed to nurture…our bodies are physically designed for it.

We are built to be able to nurture a few little cells into a full formed human being…which is nothing short of remarkable…and something that a lot of younger women tend to forget.

So if we’re designed to be nurturing…what does it really entail?

So what does nurturing really mean?

As I said, the default image that comes to mind for lots of people is an overbearing mother interfering with her children’s lives…but nurturing has nothing to do with control at all.

It’s all about supporting growth.

It’s about creating the environment in which something, or someone will flourish.

…and there’s one element of nurturing that most people forget about entirely.

So today I want to share with you two different aspects of nurturing, and some suggestions for how you can bring both of them into your life…

Aspects of the FEMININE - I - Inspiration - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

Aspects of the feminine…What’s your inspiration?

Aspects of the FEMININE - I - Inspiration - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stIt’s time to take another step deeper into the aspects of the feminine…and at the end of this video we’ll be halfway there along our journey!

It’s so important for you as a feminine woman to be able to really get to know the different aspects of the feminine, and to understand what they mean for you personally.

…and I’m really curious to hear how you’ve found the different aspects of the feminine that we’ve spoken about so far, and the difference that getting to know them better is having for you.

So please do get in touch and let me know about your experiences.

What’s your inspiration?

Inspiration, as we know, means different things to different people.

Some find inspiration in other people, others in nature, some in a piece of music, others in a game of sport.

But the great thing is, that although we do it in different ways EVERYONE has the ability to become inspired.

The power of inspiration…

…and when we tap into what inspires us, it’s like connecting into the mains.

We feel lit up.

We feel energised.

We feel alive.

We feel motivated.

It completely changes us.

When it comes to femininity though, there are two different perspectives on inspiration…and as a feminine woman it’s really important to understand them both.

So today I’m going to share with you a little more about them, and how you can bring both of them into your life…

Aspects of the FEMININE - M - Magic - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

Aspects of the feminine…It’s all about magic…

Aspects of the FEMININE - M - Magic - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stSo our journey deeper into the aspects of the feminine continues this week, with an element that is so often forgotten.

Life as an adult woman can get a bit tough…we have a lot to do, we tend to feel overwhelmed and under pressure.

We have so many hats that we’re trying to wear and so many people that we’re trying to please that it can all get a bit much.

Life get’s very serious and we’re constantly in our heads trying to manage it all and keep on top of everything.

What’s magic got to do with it?

When we get serious…life gets a lot less fun.

Our focus on deadlines, to-do lists and ‘checking things off’ can make things feel a little ‘all work and no play’.

Getting into a masculine mode of ‘do’, achieve, get the result can have a huge affect on how we feel.

It feels heavy, it feels like ‘hard work’…it’s not very enjoyable.

Where’s the magic gone?

When we talk about magic, we’re not talking about Harry Potter, or Siegfried and Roy…

We’re talking about the playfulness that is so fundamental to the feminine.

The lightness, the childlike element that so many of us forget in our adult lives.

So today we look at how we can bring it back…

Aspects of the feminine…diving deeper into emotional connection…

Aspects of the feminine...diving deeper into emotional connection... - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stSo having begun to deep dive into the aspects of the feminine last week with the F of F.E.M.I.N.I.N.E. looking at flow and how to can introduce the two aspects of flow into our lives…this week we get to look at one of my favourite aspects.

Today we’re looking deeper at the first E of the FEMININE acronym, Emotional Connection.

 

The feminine connection to emotion

Unlike the masculine, whose default position is the mind and logic, the feminine’s default position is that of the heart and emotion.

That’s not to say that either side doesn’t have an appreciation for or an ability to tap into the other’s ‘home base’, it’s just that when all things are equal and we’re being true to our core nature, this is the place that we go to first.

By better understanding the concept of emotional connection and what it means to the feminine, we can begin to explore and understand what it will mean for us personally to embody and express it.  As we know our femininity is unique to us…and so is our expression of emotional connection.

Connecting with your feminine through emotion

When we can begin to really understand and embody emotional connection, we naturally feel more feminine as a result, so today’s video is all about helping you to understand emotional connection better, and giving some suggestions for how you can start to experience more of it.

…and as with the aspect of Flow though, there are actually to elements to the feminine aspect of emotional connection, one of which you may not have considered much up to this point….

How-about-we-lose-the-balance-in-relationships-1024x640

How about we lose the balance in relationships?

How about we lose the balance in relationships? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stThere are a whole range of people out there giving advice about relationships.

Why?

Because relationships are so important, so fundamental to our lives.

There’s not a single area of our life that isn’t affected by a relationship in some way shape or form.

For the most part, a lot of the advice that is given about relationships is pretty similar.

There are a few fundamental ideas, principals and concepts that are consistent for almost everyone who advises on relationships.

Communication, trust, honesty, humour, support…the usual suspects tend to come up time and time again.

Is all advice about relationships the same? No.

One of the reasons that people come to me is that I offer advice, ideas and suggestions that no-one else is recommending.

Why?  Because I’ve discovered and created them through learning what works (and doesn’t work) in my own life, with my own relationships.

I know that the stuff I share works, because it’s tried and tested, by me and the people who are closest to me in my life.

Now I’m not saying that my partner and I are my guinea pigs for my latest content, it’s more that I get my content through the experiences that we share, the ways that we have discovered to overcome challenges, to work better together and to have the best relationship that either of us have ever experienced.

You might be surprised about today’s advice about relationships…

So every now and again I say something that has people stop, pull a strange face and exclaim “really?!”

But whatever I share, it’s because I’ve put it into practice myself, in the real world, and it’s worked.

So today I want to throw out a curve ball…and share with you why I think it’s important for us to lose our constant focus on balance in our relationships…you might be surprised to learn why…

So why should we lose the focus on balance in our relationships?

What’s the one thing you need to know to resolve conflict in all of your relationships?

What's the one thing you need to know to resolve conflict in all of your relationships? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stLet’s face it, when you bring two people together for any period of time, sooner or later there is going to be a difference of opinion.

I’ve not yet heard of two people anywhere who always think the exact same thing, at the exact same time with no variance whatsoever.

..and so regardless of whether the relationships are intimate relationships, business relationships, family relationships or friendships, there is going to come a point in time where you have different points of view.

The man / woman divide in relationships

When it comes to relationships between a man and a woman the opportunity for a difference of opinion comes up more frequently than in relationships between men or between women, mainly because we’re so fundamentally different inside.

We think differently.

We have different motivations.

We feel differently.

We have different priorities.

We have different fears, worries and concerns.

We have different approaches.

We have different meanings for the same words.

In fact, it’s a wonder that we agree on anything!

But it’s not just relationships between men and women that have problems!

As I’m sure you know, it’s not just relationships between men and women where you can have differences of opinion that lead to problems.

Though they might not happen as often, these can happen in relationships between women and between men…it’s natural when you bring two different people together.

Now, if we lived in a culture where we all enlightened and took the approach of accepting and respecting that we all have slightly different points of view, without taking it personally or allowing it to cause conflict in our relationships…we’d be fine.

Unfortunately, this isn’t often the case.  

Often when someone has a different point of view there’s an assumption that they believe we’re ‘wrong’ and so we defend our point of view to show them otherwise.  Or otherwise we feel that they just don’t understand our point of view, so we take it upon ourselves to explain (sometimes forcefully and in a lot of detail!) what we mean, because if they understood it, they’d agree with us, right?

The downside of this, as I’m sure you’ve experienced at some point is that a difference of opinion can quickly switch to a debate, conflict, arguement…or worse!

In my experience, knowing the one thing that can help reduce, or resolve conflicts in any and all kinds of relationships is pretty helpful…because you can use it any time a difference of opinion comes up, to prevent the conflict before it even begins.

So today I want to share with you this nugget that has transformed challenges in my own personal relationships, and that I share with anyone I work with who is having challenges in their relationship…

So how do you use this to resolve conflict in any and all kinds of relationships?

Do you know the key to having great relationships in every area of life?

If relationships are the key to life, what is the key to great relationships? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stWe all know that relationships are important…but do we realise just how important?

Feeling connected to other people can have a profound affect on our emotional state. It’s even been proven that when people feel excluded from others the part of the brain that is active when we experience physical pain becomes engaged.

There is a lot of research to show that connection to others is also linked with better health and a longer lifespan…but that’s not the only reason they’re so important.

Relationships are the key to life

I’ve often shared that relationships are the key to life.

Why?

Because every single part of our life is affected by relationships in some way shape or form.

Think about the different kinds of relationships you have, or would like to have:

Intimate Relationships

Relationships with Family

Relationships with Friends

Relationships with Work Colleagues

….your relationship with yourself.

If there’s an aspect of life that isn’t affected in some way shape or form by relationships then I’m not aware of it.

Relationships have the ability to change our world

Think about what happens when you’re in a really fulfilling and enjoyable intimate relationship.

When you’re feeling happy and in love, everything seems possible. Anything seems possible.

Everything is manageable.

It doesn’t matter what happens in life, your can cope with it…events that otherwise would be hard and challenging all or a sudden feel a little easier.

Now think about what happens when you’re going through a breakup, or there are really big problems in your intimate relationship.

When you’re in this space, everything seems to have a little black cloud hovering over it. Everything seems a little darker, a little harder, and a lot less fun.

Small problems elsewhere all of a sudden feel bigger, feel more overwhelming.

As Anthony Robbins says “The Quality of your life is the quality of your relationships”.

So if relationships are the key to life, what is the key to having really great relationships? Today I share with you one of the simplest ways to quickly improve any relationship in any area of life…

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you spend enough time with other feminine women?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do you spend enough time with other feminine women - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stI don’t know about you…but my journey of experiences with other women has been an interesting ride.

Having been bullied by girls at every school I ever went to, I found it incredibly difficult to trust, rely on, open up to or really connect deeply with other women.

I’d learned through school that the girls (and guys) around me were my competition.  We were always been scored and compared to each other.  Who was the best in the class?  Who came first?  Who was better than me? Which led to us constantly judging ourselves against everyone else.

Were women your competition?

Then came the teenage years…and the onslaught of the media through magazines, TV and film.  Everywhere you looked people were judging others…especially the women.  Who looked better in the same dress?  Who had put on weight?  Who had cellulite?

Magazine articles such as “New Celebrity Bikini Diets” or “Find out how ________ lost her baby weight in two weeks!” had us reaching for impossible (and often unhealthy) standards…and continually measuring ourselves against the women around us to see if we were ‘winning’ or ‘losing’ in the attractive stakes.

Do you allow other women in?

Every step of the way we were learning to judge others and compare ourselves to them.

We had female friends, of course, but the friendships were often tinged with a hint (or more) of competitiveness.

We wanted to support our friends, to be there for them, to enjoy fun times together…but we also compared ourselves to them and felt bad when we didn’t feel that we measured up.

Only recently I learned that a friend who I negatively compared myself too throughout most of my teenage years, was actually doing exactly the same thing but comparing herself to me in return!

These more masculine traits of judgement, competition and comparison have denied us the gift of real friendship with other women. Without us even knowing it they’ve created barriers, distance and blocks to the kind of connections that are available to us when we take a more feminine approach to friendship.

So today I share with you an unusual suggestion…a suggestion that whoever you are, whatever other elements you’ve included in your unique femininity formula that this is one you definitely add in…
