Sometimes this world is so surreal, I can barely stomach what is happening… then I remember that through ‘pressure’ coal turns into a diamond and this celeb ‘sexualization’ is just that… ‘pressure’ to help inspire us toward a more empowering view on sexuality for our precious children, and ourselves. I’m a Family and Relationship Expert, very open about sexuality and what true feminine empowerment is to me. I clearly tell the teenage girls I speak to and the college interns who work with me… that they are not a piece of meat, they are a piece of Art. The media is fear based. If you are afraid, you will buy their creams, clothes, music etc. If you are empowered from the inside out, sales decline. So see the media for what it is, emptiness seeking validation from the outside in, making you doubt your worth so you’ll buy something. Not EVIL, just a business. Self esteem, true feminine power, radiance that comes from our core creativity… this is all source from the inside out.
Literally have your daughter start to fall in love with herself. Write on her mirror in fabulous glitter lipstick that I Am A Glorious Radiant Kick Butt Goddess Who Is A Gift To the Planet Exactly As I Am As I Joyfully Lives My Dreams with Ease and Flow! Invite her, as you are each painting each others toe nails to tell you 10 reasons why she is enough. Make sure you hook her up with a trusted cool aunt/friend/alley to talk to her about things she may be too nervous to ask you about. Remind her that when she believes she’s not as good as another girl, she drains her power, becomes needy and boys who aren’t conscious, could manipulate her. Yet tell her when she sees her self as fabulous, and her sister friends as fabulous, she’s full, she keeps and grows her energy and radiance and she attracts boys that honor and respect her.
We all know what we focus on expands, so shift away from the media that dishonors her and toward conversations and practices that remind her she’s a piece of art, and when she chooses to become sexual, that she is a Divine Sacred Temple to be adored, honored, cherished and valued… yet ONLY if she first values herself.
