Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you need to get creative?

Blog - Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do you need to get creative - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stIn our day-to-day lives we tend to get a little dominated by logic.

With so much to do and so much going on you can understand why.

We need to use our powers of logic and organisation in action in order to feel that we can manage it all.

But when we’re logic takes over our lives, we can end up losing a part of ourselves that can be important for connecting with our femininity.

Let’s get creative…

We’ve all heard about the left-brain and right-brain.

The left-brain is all about logic, language, numbers and reasoning.

…and it’s not surprising that this is the side that often ends up taking over.  We feel that we need to logically work out how to get everything done.

But the left side of the brain is the one that is more closely associated with the masculine elements inside us, rather than the feminine.

Do you allow yourself to get creative?

It’s not surprising then that the right side of the brain is more associated with the feminine elements…connecting with and expressing our emotions, creativity, colour, intuition and music.

…and today I want to share with you some ideas and suggestions for how to get creative with your unique femininity formula.

Once you’ve watched the video, scroll down because I want to share with you my own personal experience of the battle between the left and right brain…and how I found away to overcome it…

Your Unique Femininity Formula – What makes you feel most feminine?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - What makes you feel most feminine? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stI’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…your femininity is just that YOUR femininity.

So what makes you feel most feminine is completely and totally unique to you.

In fact, what femininity feels like to you is probably different to how it feels for other women.

But we’ve spent so much of our lives trying to be like everyone else around us…trying to fit in, belong, feel accepted that we often forget that the most important voice is our own.

Does it matter what feels most feminine to other women?

Well, learning what works for other women is a great starting place.

A place to test the waters.

To get ideas.

To begin to explore.

But with everything we experience we need to stop and ask ourselves one simple question “does this work for me?”

Finding your unique flavour of feminine

The unique femininity formula is all about finding what works for you.

What is the combination of experiences that bring out the femininity in you.

But the list of suggestions is not exhaustive….

…its just a place to start.

So this is where you get to really start having some fun…because this is where you get to take the training wheels off, and begin to explore for yourself.

…and today I get to share with you the key that will open this exploration up for you and make it much easier and enjoyable…

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you need to make time for yourself?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do you need to make some time for you? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stMost of the women I know are the epitome of organisation.

If you need something doing, scheduled, arranged, or planned…give it to the nearest woman and she’ll have it done in a jiffy.

Give her a calendar, a notepad and pen to create the inevitable lists that will be associated with it, and she can pretty much achieve anything.

So if we’re so good at organising and managing our time, why is the one complaint most women have “I don’t have enough time?”

How do you manage your time?

As women, our to-do lists tend to be overflowing.

There’s a never-ending list of tasks that need to be accomplished and completed.

We have a lot to ‘fit in’.

But it’s OK.

We know the priorities, and we make sure that all of the ‘musts’ get done.

Don’t we?

Where’s the time for you?

So how to we prioritise our lists?

It’s easy…generally speaking, whatever shouts loudest, goes to the top of the list.

Kids, bosses, partners, parents….if we know that someone’s going to be on our case if something doesn’t get done, then we make sure it happens.

And therein lies the problem.

We don’t shout for ourselves.

In order to get everything done, in order to keep everyone happy, in order to keep putting one foot in front of the other and NOT having a nervous breakdown, we have to look after ourselves first.

If we wait until we’ve done everything else so that we use the time left for ourselves, we’ll be waiting a long time.

So today I want to give you some suggestions about ways in which you can make time for yourself, and what to do with it when you’ve got it!

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you need to nourish yourself?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do You Need to Nourish Yourself? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stHow often have you felt drained?

Burnt out?

Exhausted?

Like your energy levels are on empty?

If you’re like most women, the chances are that the answer is pretty often.

Have you forgotten to nourish yourself?

Over the last few weeks we’ve talked a lot about women’s to-do lists and the fact that looking after themselves is often at the end…and most of the time never gets reached.

The real problem with this is that in trying to accomplish everything on our to-do lists we actively drain ourselves.

Do you need to nourish yourself?

We get up early, we go to bed late, we rush around looking after everyone else and don’t take even the slightest second to look after ourselves.

We work overtime to hit deadlines.

We push ourselves in the gym.

We cram our lunch at our desks without stopping to pause from working.

So today I want to give you some ideas and suggestions for ways to nourish yourself along the way so you don’t find yourself running on empty…

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you need to get into your heart?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do you need to get into your Heart? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stAs we’ve talked about before, these days women spend a lot of days stuck in their heads.

We are distracted and overwhelmed by a never-ending to do list that leaves us caught in our minds analysing, over-analysing, planning, thinking and organising.

There is so much to do and so many people to help, support and please that we don’t ever seem to have any downtime from it in order to relax and take a holiday from our permanent residence in our brains to explore the other areas of the body to visit.

Have you forgotten about your heart?

The real problem with getting caught in our heads is that it cuts us off from the other areas of the body, and then distracts us into staying there.

We spend an endless amount of hours worrying about the things that have happened in the past.  What happened, how did it happen, how could if have been different?

We constantly think about all the things we need to do right now.  What do I do next, what is the priority, what could wait (for now)?

…and we are continually concerned about the future.  What if this happens, what if that happens, if I did this, then what would the outcome be, how can I get the result I’m looking for?

It’s exhausting, and it cuts us off from experiencing what we’re feeling in the here and now.

Do you need to reconnect with your heart?

As we know, the head is a very masculine place to be, and conversely the heart is connected with the feminine.

Masculinity is about logic, femininity is about emotion.

But women have spent so much time being told “Don’t get so emotional”, “You’re so sensitive”, “Big girls don’t cry” and a variety of other common remarks that we’ve made our natural emotional connection wrong.

When we disconnect from our heart and our emotions, we disconnect with the truth of who we are.

…so today I want to share with you a little reminder about getting into your heart, and some ideas for how to begin:

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Are you doing or being?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Are you doing or being? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stIf you’re anything like me, you always have a lot to do.

In fact most women run their lives around a never ending to do list.

When we meet someone new, our first question is often “so what do you do?”

We identify ourselves by what we do for a living.

When we have some free time, we look for something to do.

When there’s a problem we want to know what to do about it.

Is all this doing a good idea?

So what do you have on your to do list?

Things to do for your work?

Things to do at home?

Things to do for your health or fitness?

Things to do with your friends?

We’re always looking for the next thing to do.

With all of this ‘doing’…do you ever get to stop and enjoy life?

What affect is the doing having?

The challenge with having our focus on doing is that ‘doing’ is a very masculine trait.

The masculine is all about action…making things happen.

It’s go-go-go all the time in the world of the masculine…which is great if you’re masculine at core.

But if you’re not masculine at core, spending all of your time doing can be utterly exhausting.

…and there is an alternative, and today I want to share with you about it:

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you know how to get into your body?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do you know how to get into your body? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stThese days, we women spend a LOT of time in our heads.

We think, we analyse, we wonder, we consider all the options.

It doesn’t matter what the topic, we like to make sure we’ve thoroughly considered every aspect of it.

We’ve got so used to thinking things through…that we have a tendency to over-think them!

Have you forgotten about your body?

We want to figure things out, find the solution…we’re intelligent creatures, so it’s natural for us to want to use our brains.

Think about your relationship.  How much time do you spend thinking about it, thinking about what’s great about it, what’s not so good about it, what could be better about it?

If there’s a problem you want to figure out the answer, look at the possible options, and potential outcomes and decide which course of action is likely to be the ‘best’.

But we’ve got so caught up in our heads with all this thinking that we’ve completely disconnected from our bodies.

What’s your body got to do with it?

The challenge we have as women is that logic and reasoning is a very masculine trait.

Now that’s not to say that it’s not something that women can do, far from it, but it also isn’t wise for a feminine women to spend all her time in her head stuck in the paralysis of analysis.

Getting stuck in your head is the fastest way to end up feeling overwhelmed and stuck…circling round and round with no real way out.

So the solution for us it to get out of our heads, and into our bodies…and today I give you a few ideas to get you started:

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you know how to let go of control?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do you know how to let go of control? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stControl.

We all like to feel that we have an element of control, that we have the ability to affect what happens in our lives.

But is control a bad thing?

I mean, if we lose control everything will fall apart, right?

Not necessarily…

Is control really a bad thing?

There are a couple of challenges when it comes to control.

The first is that, control is a myth.  We can’t ever really be in control of what happens in life.

Our lives get affected by events and other people, which means that trying to keep control is futile.

If we can instead realise that control is nothing more than illusion life gets a lot easier.

Why should I let go of control?

The second challenge for control for a feminine woman is that it puts us squarely in our masculine.

Trying to keep control brings a lot of tension to our bodies.

Just think for a moment of trying to control something…then think of trying to control a number of things at the same time.  Can you feel the tension beginning to creep in?

Often the muscles in your stomach, back and shoulders begin to tighten and draw in.

Tightening and tension in the body is a sign of the masculine, as opposed to relaxation and flow which is much more connected to the feminine.

So today I want to talk to you a little bit about control and how you can begin to let it go:

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you connect with your animal instincts?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do you connect with your animal instincts? - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stWhen I was a little girl, whenever someone asked me what I wanted to do, they always got the same reply.

No it wasn’t to do with chocolate.

No it didn’t involve shoes.

No it didn’t involve a bouncy castle.

The answer was always the same.

“Can we go and feed the animals please?”

Have you forgotten your animal instincts?

It didn’t matter where we were in the world, or what we were there to do or see, I always wanted to find a way to be with the animals.

When we were in London I always wanted to feed the pigeons in Trafalgar Square.

If we were in the country I would be making a beeline for the nearest farm.

If I had the opportunity I would want to go for a horse ride.

Ducks, horses, goats, deer…you name it, I wanted to be with them.

I forgot my animal instincts…

But as I got older, and life got busier, I forgot about my animal instincts.

I always had a lot to do, people to see, places to go.

I travelled a lot so having animals of my own wasn’t feasible.

But none of that diminished the affect that being around animals had on me.

So today I want to remind you about your animal instincts, and give you some suggestions for how to reconnect with them in a way that works for your life:

Your Unique Femininity Formula – Do you Nurture Yourself?

Your Unique Femininity Formula - Do you Nourish Yourself? Claire Brummell, Feminine 1stSo last week we started to look at your unique femininity formula, and how you can create a practice which will help you to feel more feminine every day.

The challenge that so many women have these days is that we’ve got so much on our plates…and looking after ourselves and our needs is always at the end of the never ending to do list.

…and the problem with it being at the end of the list?

We never get around to it.

Why is it important to nurture yourself?

Often us women have a lot of people whose needs we’re taking into consideration.  Our partners, our families, our children, people at work, our friends…the list goes on.

…and we don’t tend to remember that life is a little bit like a trip on an airplane.

When you get onto the airplane they take you through the safety procedure, and tell you what will happen if the cabin loses air pressure.

The oxygen masks come down and you are told that you need to put on your own oxygen mask before you help anyone else with theirs.

Why? Because you can’t help anyone if you’re passed out on the floor due to lack of oxygen!

So how can I nurture myself?

Well the same is true in life as well.  You need to make sure that you nourish yourself and look after your needs in order that you are in a position to be able to consider the people around you as well.

So today I want to share with you some ideas and suggestions that you might want to add to your Unique Femininity Formula to make sure that you stay nourished and you are in a position to bring your best to the people you care about…
