“My definition of beauty is simplicity, elegance, and sensuality. I think that when a woman is in harmony with herself and remains true to her values, she will glow naturally.”~ Megan Fox
When is the last time you fully and completely enjoyed something? When is the last time you felt deep and overwhelming bliss or joy or excitement? Some of us may be blocked from our deeper feelings and senses an I want to work on changing that. Getting intouch with the senses and more sensual parts of self will increase your connection to everthing around you.
Sensuality is the act of experiencing or indulging in one’s senses, which can include anything that causes a person to feel physical, emotional, and mental pleasure.
So sensuality is not just about your senses…
It’s an expression of your whole self. Sensuality is a holistic physical experience and it’s time we embrace it.
Adding the element of sensuality to your self- care practice means we will be giving more attention to our bodies and what they need: healthy food, exercise, movement, and relaxation.
The idea behind sensual self-care is to tune into your femininity, your root and sacral chakras, your physical body, and use mindfulness to pour into your ‘self’ and connect with your ‘self.’ You have 5 senses. Become playful with them! Explore them.
Below there are a few tips for bringing more sensuality and femininity into your self-care this month!
Take some time to become curious about your body and explore it. How does it feel when you stretch like this, or how does it feel when you wrap yourself in this? Do you love a soft blanket? Do you prefer a hard mattress? Whatever it is, bring more o f that into your life.
Try new and exotic foods. Do you always go for the same dishes? why not take some time and explore a different cuisine or a different combination of foods. Do not be afraid of disliking something either – it’s part of the fun and helps you discover more of what you do like.
Incorporate more music in your life. Try to listen to music from other countries or genres. became curious about the appeal or culture of other things. Try listening to nature. Are you aware of how your neighborhood sounds at the still of night? Or how about early in the morning? Do you know what the birds sound like around you? Practice mindfulness and still ness and breathe in the nuances of life and the beauty of nature.
Try essential oils and aromatherapy. Buy yourself some flowers or candles. For nostalgic purposes pick up some old perfume and spray it around your space.
Go somewhere you haven’t been before. See something you haven’t seen before. Get lost in your city. Go down a different street. Go to a museum. Or consider your routine with new eyes and a new perspective.
So by discovering sensual self-care you open yourself up to connection, and embrace who you are. Increasing your sensuality will allow you to enjoy life’s pleasures on different new level. This is an amazing way to become present, connect with your surroundings and with your inner self. Think of ways that you can delve deeper into your self-care this month.
Femininity is not just lipstick, stylish hairdos, and trendy clothes. It is the divine adornment of humanity. It finds expression in your qualities of your capacity to love, your spirituality, delicacy, radiance, sensitivity, creativity, charm, graciousness, gentleness, dignity, and quiet strength.
