Episode 296: Commune with Yourself: How to Be a Woman of Grace, Joy, Sensuality & Presence w/Allana Pratt
Our culture struggles to allow women to be simultaneously motherly and sensual. What do we get so wrong about our understanding of sexuality? What happens when your vibration rises? Why should we be willing to face pain? On this episode, I have a powerful conversation with coach Allana Pratt who shares the journey she’s taken to an open heart.
The internal always creates the external. The masks don’t work, and our strength is in our vulnerability. -Allana Pratt
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
Sexuality isn’t just sex (07:36 – 09:00)
Our culture doesn’t know how to deal with the fact that women can be mothers and still be sexy. We have forgotten that sexuality is literally sacred life force energy. It is sexual, creative, life force energy, and we have wrongly compartmentalized it into the traditional idea of sex.
Connect with little you (11:16 – 12:39)
So many people seek approval through touch, sex, and relationships. What makes them feel good is from the outside-in, but it should be from the inside-out. You have to mentally go inside to “little you”: the child who is alone, and scared. Learning to soothe that person is a powerful step to inner peace.
When you get to know yourself, expect a lot of changes (14:44 – 14:59)
Be warned: if you’re going to really dive in and get to know yourself, be prepared to not like everything you have put in your life. Be ready to be strong enough to change those things.
There are consequences to finding and reclaiming yourself. As you rise in your vibration, whatever is of the old vibration won’t fit anymore and will fall away. It takes great bravery and great courage to make the changes that come with a change in your vibration. That’s why it’s so important to have a solid relationship with yourself. Remember: we have to experience both joy and pain for us to truly be who we are. There’s so much power in having communion with yourself, your truth, your body, and your heart.
