Rapture. How long has it been?

Rapture.
That place, that space, that time.
When everything feels, and is, euphoric.
So good, so right.
You know your place and space in the world.
And you want it to last forever.
Because every second is better than the last.

Rapture is that sense that not only is everything alright—it is better than alright.  It is fucking ecstatic.
In fact, when we experience rapture, we understand what it means to be truly alive, truly living, connected to all things, feeling both on-the-floor grateful for the gift of life, and on a rocket to the moon with euphoria and exultation.

When was the last time you felt that way?
Do you feel that that place called Rapture is at your fingertips, at your disposal whenever you wish?
Or is it elusive?  Just outside your grasp?  Impossible to find when you need it most?
Once you had it, now it’s gone. How do you get there from here?

Rapture is something little kids feel all the time.
Every day.
Every moment of every day.
Isn’t that what is so captivating about a baby?
They are saturated in the exquisite rapture of being alive, experiencing fingers, toes, sights, sounds, gummy first smiles.
We touch our own rapture when we encounter a baby.

Does it ever seem to you that rapture cranks down as we grow up?
Why is that?
There isn’t time.
It isn’t appropriate.
It doesn’t belong here.

And where are we taught that rapture does belong?
Where are we supposed to feel it?
Dancing at a rock concert?
When we are high on drugs and alcohol?
In the arms of our most deeply longed for Prince or Princess?
Watching a sunset?

Then again, how many times have you had one of those experiences and NOT felt rapture?
Because you were too busy, or too stressed, or too exhausted?

And what happens to a woman’s life force when rapture vanishes?
What happens to her joy?
Her enthusiasm?
Her sense of self?

Well, I have to let you in on Rapture’s little secret.
She has nothing to do with the Prince.
Or the Princess.
Rapture is YOUR birthright.
The gift YOU bring yourself.
A product of being born a woman, with the gift of 8,000 nerve endings dedicated to pleasure.
Rapture is the food that fuels a woman’s soul.
Rapture actually means more to a woman than food, than clothes, than shelter.
It is a place where her true essence comes into full flower, and the sense of connection and meaning returns to her everyday life.

Most of us have had the experience of being enraptured by something or someone.  Who hasn’t been enraptured by a painting?  Or a performance?  Or a crush?  What women fail to realize is that we are the generators of rapture.  Rapture exists because we cast our spell.  Because we decide.  We are the possessors of the pixie dust.  It glitters because we say so.  And women have no idea that we hold all the cards.  So we go chasing rapture—in someone else’s eyes or in someone else’s image, or in someone else’s opinion—because we have not embodied what is rightfully ours.
If I don’t take ownership of my rapture, someone else will.  And they will sell it back to me at twice the price.

Every woman deserves to know the address, the location, and the directions to her own sense of rapture.  When you know rapture can be yours, no matter where you are, no matter what is going on, no matter what you are doing, no matter who is—or who isn’t—in your life, then you are free.  Flying at an altitude that serves your soul and fuels your desires.

ABSOLUTELY! One of the things I love most about the School of Womanly Arts is the ridiculously strong friendships that are created, AND I would be absolutely delighted for you to bring your friends, your sisters, and/or your mama.

It’s come one, come all, and I’m relying on each of you to gather the troops so we can turn Miami into Pleasure Central.
