I invite you to close your eyes and imagine what it’s like to be in a warm, playful loving, intimate relationship. Can you picture what it’s like to feel totally at ease with expressing your desires and needs. To feel supported and connected at the deepest levels?

Okay, now open your eyes. Is this your reality? If it is, I’m so happy for you. If it’s not, then I want you to know you’re not alone.

So many people feel awkward and uncomfortable in their intimate relationships. They don’t know how to ask for what they want, without feeling afraid, guilty or ashamed. They’re left feeling lonely and disconnected, robbing themselves of joyful intimacy.

Let’s take a closer look at the word “Intimacy”. To me it means “into-me-see”. You see, the key to real intimacy is first confidently connecting with yourself, and releasing the past hurts and limiting beliefs that hold you back.

When you do that, you can live your life in technicolour and surround sound — with passion and purpose. You create a life of vibrant intimacy, with and without a partner.

My own intimacy journey has elements of ugly to awesome. Growing up in a strict Greek orthodox family I was disciplined in the art of heightened awareness and self-sacrificing service. My mother’s words were heard: “if you don’t cook, clean and take care of your family, when you get married your husband will kick you out.”

As a result, I left myself on the back burner, putting others before me. I was forced into an arranged marriage at the age of 18, and never really got to know who I was. At the same time, I experienced a variety of physical and emotional traumas, including an abusive husband. I felt incredibly alone and disconnected.

 

To survive, my coping mechanism led me to create a protective armour around my heart. And in an effort to feel safe, my warrior side emerged and I became more masculine. I went through life feeling numb and disconnected, unable to feel and seek self-care. Not letting anyone into my heart and not fully living my life. 

Years passed, and I felt lost and tired of holding up my protective shield. My heart felt heavy and numb. Frustrated and struggling, I felt the need to breathe with deep breaths. I had a burning desire to live life fully  — in technicolour textures and surround sound. And so I began my healing and self-empowerment journey.

Finally, I realized my body, heart and mind must heal as a holistic system. I learned how to feel connected and empowered with myself. I nourished and cultivated my intimacy with authentic confidence. Bringing forward my playfulness, curiosity, creativity, love of life, joy of laughter and intimacy.

You too can get the vibrant life, love and intimacy you desire. You can bring back the balance of playfulness, curiosity, and fun on your empowerment journey.
