Do you feel that your struggling with intimacy in your relationship, or its been a pattern throughout your relationships?

Feeling lonely and depressed with and without a partner. The rabbit hole of frustration, awkwardness, and discomfort with any level of intimacy with yourself is challenging. Not clear on how to ask for what you desire without feelings of fear, guilt and shame.

You see yourself living, loving and sharing intimacy in a numb and disconnected with a partner and with yourself. Your heart has too many protective coping mechanisms that you are unsure of how to live a techni-colour textured and surround sound life. A life of vibrant intimacy with or without a partner.

A closer look at the word “Intimacy”. To me it means “into me see”. The path of seeing into yourself. Empowering you to connect with confidence to your intimacy first. Then the rest of life’s intimate moments, experiences and relationships are a piece of cake.

My personal empowerment journey has ugly to awesome elements which kept me from folding within myself and into the shadows of society.

Growing up in strict Greek orthodox family I was disciplined in the art of heightened awareness. “if you don’t cook, clean and take care of your family, when you get married your husband will kick you out.” The family training of service did not prepare me for the variety of physical, emotional and energetic traumas with people who were identified as family and friends and the most profound being my arranged marriage at the age of 18 to an abusive partner.

My survival coping mechanism turned up the volume on my sense of numbness and fence layers around my heart. Not fully living any more. My awareness for safety was heightened, and my warrior side emerged to protect myself. I became more masculine and my ability to feel and seek self-care was diminished.

I was tired of holding up my protective shield and feeling numb. Frustrated and struggling I felt a grasping need to breathe with deep breaths. A burning desire to have the ripple effect of living fully, in techni-colour textures and surround sound. 

As a result the connection was made! My body, heart and mind must heal as a holistic system. Giving me the gift becoming connected with confidence to myself. Finally, with bold confidence I was able to live, love, laugh and have the intimacy I desire.
