Recently, I released a quiz to determine your Brand of Sexy. If you haven’t taken it yet, go to the link below after you finish reading this post.
In my effort to help women more easily tap into their femininity and in turn live more confident lives, I used information from the book Simply Irresistible by Ellen T. White, who segmented the feminine energies into five discernible “Sirens” based upon which male desire they fulfill in their being. (Very interesting reading, but there is more to it than her book allows.)
How I work with feminine energies
For the work that I am focusing on, I will be calling them Brands. These Brands are all unique and powerful in their own way, but can also inspire one to engage in maladaptive behaviors. I will explain further using the language from Carolyn Myss’ archetype work, Lights and Shadows.
I posted a bit about my personal introduction to archetype work in the blog here.
There are many energies swirling around and through us daily. They are what are called personas in psychological terms. Some days we are more sensual, others we are more competitive, and others more nurturing. Literally just like articles of clothing we wear everyday, we put them on and feel them as our identity. Sometimes we embody more than one at a time, which is how I snagged my love.
When we are in the light part of the Brand (tapped into the positive side of the energy,) we are focused on abundance and everything working out and are not worried about the future. We are present and generous in our interactions. Our closest tend to magnetize to us to bathe in the beauty of our light.
When in the shadow, we are in a shadow and not allowing the energy of the light to fill us. We end up focusing on lack or things not working out so we have to take action to manipulate the situation so that it goes well. Who wants to be known as a manipulator???
The perfect example of this is the Flirt. She is the epitome of sugar and spice. She knows when to turn up the naughty, and she knows when to turn up the nice. For example, when she is speeding down the roadway and gets pulled over by the police, she will determine which “angle” (feigned innocence or sultry vamp) to use when the officer approaches the vehicle. She then taps into that during the interaction and depending on her “performance” will learn if it works or not. I have tried this before, and usually fall on feigned innocence—works every time!
