* Sexy Service for the Planet

During this time of planetary transformation, we could all use a good dose of sexy. This enigmatic force that stimulates, titillates and excites may make our evolutionary journey more joyful and possibly influence a brighter outcome.  

     We normally think of sexy as a physical display to attract a sexual partner. But authentic ‘sexy’ is a positive, energetic vibration that emanates from the body and passionately embraces the entire universe and everyone in it as the eternal beloved. Those who come into contact with a sexy person are uplifted into a state of joy and become beacons of a higher vibration themselves, their own luminosity beaming to the next person, until the entire community is infused with a loving and joyful overtone.  

     A sexy woman doesn’t worry about pushup bras and heels. She adorns herself with a smile, an open-heart, non-judgment and full-presence, and establishes a soulful connection with each person she meets. Her genuine charisma turns heads, intrigues and inspires.

     Sexy isn’t a divine gift possessed by only a few special women –  all women have it. ‘It’ is raw, sexual energy, which resides in the pelvis and vagina, which can be boosted into powerful, personal energy and a positive, interpersonal influence with a couple of simple techniques. These techniques were developed centuries ago by Tantric arts practitioners, who discovered that harnessing and guiding one’s own physical energy, particularly sexual energy, will purify the body and prepare it to unite with the divine. The resulting, energetic radiance transcends the physical and encompasses the ethereal, and envelops both the practitioner and those around her with feelings of peace and love.

     For women, techniques include pumping the muscles of the pelvis and vagina to stimulate the energy and using focused breath to distribute it through the body. The following simple exercises, based on these Tantric techniques, provide a fun way for you to fully experience your feminine body, and generate your energy, boost your sexiness and become a heavenly influence on the planet.     

 Squeeze and Release

     This easy vaginal exercise can be performed anytime and anywhere – at work, while driving or talking on the telephone.

     Inhale through the nose to fill lungs. Once full, tightly squeeze the vaginal and anal muscles and hold for 10 seconds. Exhale slowly while gently releasing the muscles until completely relaxed. Wait five seconds, then repeat.

     Perform 10 times total, several times a day.

 Dance with Hip Thrusts and Breath

     Dance to rhythmic music and fully engage the pelvis by thrusting the hips forward and tilting back, moving to the beat.

     When the hips are thrust forward, squeeze the vaginal muscles tightly and exhale saying “ooh,” the sound to stimulate sexual energy. Tilt hips back so that buttocks stick out, inhale through the nose and relax vaginal muscles. Thrust forward again. Continue the thrust and tilt, fully experiencing the movement of your hips. Verbalize “ooh” with each thrust. Rub your hands sensually over your body as you dance. Proceed until you feel sexually aroused.     

     At this time, stand still, inhale through the nose and visualize the energy moving from the vagina into the body. Hold the breath and squeeze vaginal muscles tightly. Hold for as long as is comfortable. Release the breath and relax vaginal muscles. Repeat the breath process six more times.

     Perform several times a week.   


* Conversation with Karen Tate: Motivated by Goddess

Good Goddess! How does she do it all?  Karen Tate is an ambitious woman on a mission to raise consciousness of the Sacred Feminine. She works unceasingly and ingeniously, employing every media available, including web, YouTube, lectures, and even the pulpit, to share insights of Goddess thealogy (deasophy) and ways to integrate them into our world. Karen is the author of two books, including the popular Sacred Places of Goddess: 108 Destinations, a writer for Examiner.com, radio host, speaker, international tour guide to sacred places and priestess. Oh, I forgot to mention, she also has a day job.

Karen isn’t just an historian who teaches facts and figures about ancient women’s history, but makes history relevant in today’s social and political issues. Like many of us today, Karen believes that the world’s woes are due to the absence of feminine sacredness in our cultures. “We’re so much more than what our culture challenges us to be. We’re robots with wrong values and wrong priorities,” says Karen. Her desire is to help influence a positive change in our priorities by alerting us of the detriments of the missing feminine, and offer a new paradigm in which all are interconnected, respectful of each other, reverent of nature and influenced by Mother Goddess. 

Karen’s most recent appearance was at the American Academy of Religion/WECSOR, where she presented her paper, Goddess is a Democrat.  Her observations of a world without feminine reverence were applauded by many of her peers, though she expects to receive not so favorable feedback from people who cling to dysfunctional, patriarchal systems.   See the video of her presentation here:


It takes a lot of energy to take but one small step to make a change, let alone promote a spiritual idea that challenges the very core of a global society. Yet Karen’s steps are giant and frequent. Wishing to discover Karen’s secrets for her high levels of energy and productivity in the name of Goddess, I asked her for insights. I share her multidimensional strategies, so that you, too, can do what it takes to set the world afire with your ideas and gifts to make the world a better, more loving place.
Set Goals, Make Lists and Stick With It 
One of Karen’s long-time habits is to make a list of goals for the year, month, week, and day. “I’m a list maker, and every day I write a list of things to accomplish. If I don’t accomplish it, I write it on my list the next day.”  A seemingly mundane task, writing lists will propel you forth and keep you on track. 

Then, work tenaciously to meet those goals. And don’t let rejection get in the way. Karen received 35 rejection letters for her first book proposal, but that didn’t’ stop her from the next submission. She finally found the perfect publisher, and her book has been a success on the market. Karen says "Be tenacious - like water wearing away rock. Eventually we will reach our goals.”

Call Upon Goddess for Support and Inspiration
During times of difficulty or overwhelm, Karen calls upon the Egyptian Goddess SekHmet, Lady of Tenacity Manifested and remover of obstacles, giver of strength and passion. She also seeks comfort and strength from Isis, Goddess of love, joy and compassion. Karen was awakened from Catholic girl slumber and greeted by Goddess several decades ago, and her life changed. She is the founder of the Isis Ancient Cultures Society in Los Angeles, where she has organized public events for more than ten years. Now, Goddess is present in her every moment.

Often a response from her calls to the divine come in the early hours of the morning with ideas and flowing inspirations. “Often I get my best ideas at 3:00am, so I will get up and write things down. At this time, all the veils are down, and great things come through the subconscious part of ourselves, where we are closest to the Source, within us or outside of us.”

Learn and Live Passionately
One of Karen’s favorite endeavors is her radio show, Voices of the Sacred Feminine, because it helps her learn.  “I love asking questions. It feeds me.” And it fuels her passion. Keenly important to Karen is that everything she does follows her passion and her belief in what she is doing, even IF it doesn’t generate income. Karen is "doing Goddess's work.” She’s not looking for recognition, she’s doing her part to improve her world, and that is reward enough. 

Go with the Flow and Know When to Stop Pushing a Boulder Up Hill
Karen has been guided to where she is. “I sort of went with the flow and maybe just playing out my destiny.” She believes that if you go with the plan Goddess has for you, it works. If you don’t, you’re challenged in a way that is like rolling the boulder up-hill.  In this case, stop wasting time. “Goddess is saying, ‘this is not where to put your time.’ Often, Goddess's plan might appear as a bump in the road that takes you in a direction that is more authentically your direction.”

“We are here working with our monkey brains and we don’t always know what’s best for us. When you realize you’re not in control, you are actually liberated. Always do your best, but sometimes things go wrong, and when they do, there’s always a lesson or gift in it. Look for it, and don’t dwell on how bad it is.”

Surround Yourself with Supportive People
“When you surround yourself with people who support you, nurture you and believe in you, and who aren’t critical and jealous, you become a blossoming flower. Don’t be with people who use you or who don’t have your best interest at heart. Women, especially, need to learn from each other and support each other.”

Karen credits the support of her husband, Roy, in the completion of her books. Coming home from her day job at 5:00pm and working on her book until 2:00am, Roy helped along the way, taking care of the domestic duties while Karen wrote. “That’s why I dedicated my second book to him.”

Have Faith
Karen is often reminded that Goddess has always taken care of her. “Life is good, with enough money.” She has no pension, yet something in her core assures her everything is going to be alright.  “I’m not sure what that inner knowing is, but I don’t question it. I just keep doing what I’m doing.”

Karen used to work in corporate American, and decided that working in a cubicle or office environment wasn’t for her. And while her current day job as an apartment manager is far below her professional capabilities, it is fairly stress-free and gives her time to think about her work. “It’s a trade off. I’m trading money for experience.” 

Karen cites the work of psychologist Eric Fromm, who theorizes there are two modalities of people – one needs money and things, the other wants to ‘be’ and values experience over money in the bank. Karen is the second type, which is why traveling and doing all the she does is more important to her than money. “That’s the Goddess way – it’s about learning and sharing, not being capitalistic.”
“Once I found Goddess, I experienced personal empowerment. Now it has segued into cultural awareness and politics. Yes, Goddess has helped me, but can this also help the world?”

* Positive Energy is Success

We get a lot of pressure – from society, from our families, and especially from ourselves -  to be successful.  Success is often associated with high-level positions and solid careers, nice cars, beautiful clothing, ownership of a home or property, and at the very least, a steady stream of decent income. But often these are symbols of success and not necessarily true success.  Often these symbols disguise what is really happening to “successful” people – complete stress, disease, tremendous sadness, emptiness.   


I believe true success is much deeper than the superficial symbols of success.  The symbols of true success are:

1)  Joyfulness (i.e. positiveness) with where you are right now, at this minute.

2)  Excitement in becoming the best you can be in this lifetime on this planet.

3)  Enthusiasm for life’s journey.


If we are on a path of self discovery, constantly learning, maintaining an open mind, and applying what we learn and love to what we do in life, THAT is success.  And as we become inspired and express our inspirations through our work, our creations, or even our conversations, we evolve and grow more. THAT is success. Being joyful with what you’ve created so far in life, and using every day to explore, listen, and grow even more, and LOVING it is true success.


A Positive Energy Woman has a joyful and positive vibration, no matter what her circumstance, and is a successful woman.  She has ‘arrived’ and attained all of the things we hope to feel when we have the house, the beautiful clothing and nice car – high self-worth, a sense of achievement, and the great joy of expressing what is within. She feels joyful whether she’s driving an old Honda or a Mercedes.  She’s healthy, got a great attitude, a zest for life. She has the vibe of success. Her positive energy will attract opportunities, people, and a sense of well being.   


So you are successful right NOW.  And now that you know it, take success a couple of steps further. 

-  Appreciate all that you’ve created, all of the wonderful people around you, all of the potential opportunities in store for you

- Be generous with your positive energy, and smile, give love, give support to others.      


Have a successful day!
