Balance and centre the modern day Goddess
“Zone #1” is that heart-centered place that lays within us all. She is mother, she is compassion, she is ever wanting and needing to please you, soothe you and make sure you are at peace with yourself and the world. She is there for you now, she has always been and she will never give up on you. She waits with baited breath in hope that you shall return to her over and over again.
How regularly do you truly get back to Zone #1? Have you ever truly been there? And if you had, how would you know?
You would know if you have ever had that feeling of great gratitude fill your heart.
If you have ever relaxed so much that you feel your self floating.
Or If you’ve ever felt true gratifying contentment.
You most probably work full or part time. You're most likely a mother and or a wife, a dedicated partner and a house holder. Whatever you are I suspect you to could be caught up in this fast paced whirl-wind of a life.
If you tick yes to any of these, you would do yourself a favour to check in with Zone #1 now.
May I ask? Do you ever allow your instincts have a say, or do you only do what you think it is you should do?
Do you ever second guess your self? Or when was the last time you where truly clear on your life and your future prospects?
Can you focus on one task at a time, or do you do another ten jobs in your head whilst struggling to complete that one?
I bet that when you begin to enjoy your relaxing (if ever), you begin to tell your self that you should get up and go for a walk or a jog, or to get up and do some house work, or finish those papers or that essay, am I right?
On and on you go, you allow your mind to do anything but relax, you allow your mind to tell you how to run your life and you, my dear, buy into it. This prevents you from allowing yourself to step into Zone #1 and rebalance, relax, rejuvenate, live life with pleasure with put the guilt aside.
For us fast paced modern Goddesses, I have put together a couple of ‘quickies’ to get you back into Zone-# 1:
Walking is an amazingly quick and beneficial method. All it takes is a 20-minute walk in the fresh air to bring you back into Zone # 1.
Earthing Take your shoes off and walk around on the grass, in the sand, in the dirt, even mud if you’re lucky enough to have some. This brings you back into heart-centred Zone #1 every time.
Hands on healing You do not have to be a Reiki master to be able to use the art of hands on healing. Think about it, what is the first thing you do when you fall over and hurt your knee? You put your hand on it.
This is a perfect method and a very quick and available way to bring you back into Zone#1.
I use this if there is stress with work or my children. I use this if something has upset me and I need to calm, centre and quickly reground my self. You simply place your hand on your heart centre which is in the centre of your chest or place your hand on over your upper stomach area (Solar Plexus) and use your intention to heal, calm and soothe yourself back to Zone#1.
Listen to your favourite music I do this in my car, if I am in negative zone of ‘contraction’. I put on my favourite old songs really loudly and sing to my heart’s content. Get it? Sing to your heart’s content!
Meditate I am not going to tell you to sit and mediate for 40 minutes a day. Even I realise that this is unrealistic for most modern day Goddesses. Though if you are inclined to be a meditator 15 to 20 minutes is a wonderful carriage to take into Zone # 1.
Orgasm Surely it comes as no surprise that having an orgasm is really good for you. It gives you that sense of satisfaction, gratification, and that delicious whole body floating above the clouds feeling like nothing else in the world matters. Having an orgasm is a perfect example on how to live your life with ‘mindfulness’. Mindfulness teaches us to be in the moment and to live in the moment you’re living in, to be present and fully aware of the here and now. Of course this wouldn’t be the ‘quick fix’ during a work day situation, you’d need to make the time and space for this ‘back to self’ activity.
With integrity high on your list, having an orgasm is a beautiful way to touch the core of being in Zone #1.
Sensuality Take a bath, spoil yourself. Eat your favourite foods, wear your most comfortable, flattering clothes. Do what it takes to shift that mood and help you remember who you actually set out to be: A natural born, blissful, content loving human.

Next September I will have been a mother for twenty years. If you’re parent, either biological, foster, step or guardian, there’s probably no need for me to spell out the domestic duties involved with such a gift.
For quite some time before having my son and daughter I cooked, cleaned and shopped for their father right up until the day we parted. Then I fell crazily in love, took a new husband, and I have acquired two step children that stay regularly.
When I met my second husband I had two things that I needed to say. The first was that as soon as my daughter finishes school I plan to follow my dreams of travel. The second was “don’t tie me to the kitchen sink’’.
How does a mother and a wife get away with that? When you have a home to run and people you love coming and going, it’s really difficult not to be TIED TO THE SINK.
I can feel it brewing inside of me like a rebellious lighting storm. The closer my daughter gets to the end of her schooling, the stronger the instinctual urge is for me to burn the bra alongside with the dish gloves and modify my trusty kitchen broom into super magical flying machine and head for the stars.
How oh how do I come to terms with this? If I didn't step foot into another supermarket ever again I’d be a happy woman. What on earth will I cook tonight? Do I really need to mop today or will a good sweep do (again)? Surely there are some temples far off in another land that need discovering? See there I go off in another world again.
Brainstorm Annie, you coach people on shifting blocks like this. What would you tell advise them to do?
Gratitude is coming up.
I am grateful for the people that surround me.
I am grateful that I have money to go food shopping.
I am grateful that I have a beautiful home to clean.
I am grateful that I have all of the modern luxuries of domestic living.
Okay, is telling yourself to shut up and stop moaning and be grateful for what you’ve got going to truly help? The answer is yes, for now anyway. But it won’t stick long term. You need to devise a solution.
In 2017 both of my children will be adults, I know they can cook and use the washing machine. I’ve taught them myself.
Here is my plan, I am going to slowly wean this family of mine from the boob ‘YET AGAIN” and gradually hand over their domestic duties to them. I’ll replace the bot bot with responsibility and before too long they will be on their own.
That leaves me to look after my husband and I. This means I may still be tied to the kitchen sink from time to time. I’d better replace the dish gloves with a silk scarf.
Love and Blessings Annie Wilson
Assuming you are in relationship with someone you’re in love with, I would take a guess and say, ‘it may come as no surprise to you the value of making time for love’.
I mean, how the heck did December get its jolly holiday bags packed and be on well and truly on its way to us already?
Time flies like a rocket. So how can we possibly fit in ‘time for love’?
In my crazy world, my husband often works eighteen hour days and for 95% of the year, he works seven days a week. When he isn’t on the road we often work together and when we hit the hay we are (to put it politely) stuffed.
So apart from the hot impromptu quickies, time for good quality, hot steaming, long sexual romps are far and few between. Not to mention having any time for quality conversation or activities that don’t involved my ‘all husband’ consuming transport company.
At particular times, when the moon and I align, I have a deep instinctual urge to take my husband by the scruff of his shirt and drag him to the bedroom and have my ravenous way with him.
I have realised that this is only ever a possibility attached to a whole string of variables such as, ‘is he going to be home before 12am?’ Is he in the same state as me? The same time zone? Do we have a house full of teenagers?’
Last Saturday at 2pm we finally got away from work and headed one and half hours north along the coast to spend less then twenty-four uninterrupted blissful hours together in a small seaside village.
It very nearly didn’t happen.
We almost put it in the too hard basket and cancelled. If we had cancelled, we would have worked until 5pm or later then come home, had dinner and crashed by 9pm, woke up and did the same old thing over again.
We made the effort. No matter how tired, we chose to make it happen. We delegated tasks and finally took off for a night.
