“Hi ladies! (I got engaged this year to the love of my life.) This Christmas for me at home with my family and traditions, with him, was magical. It felt so amazing to have him there with me. I woke up on Christmas Day to him staring at me with a smile on his face. That was my favorite part of the holiday. He was everything for me at my home; he was absolutely amazing. This was the first time I've taken a man home for Christmas my betrothed (engaged). This was kind of a huge deal to me.

My time home with my man was magical. He was magical. He was steady and calm and loving. He brought me coffee in bed, cooked for my family. My family made fun of us for staring at each other lovingly "too much." (Okay...after what feels like 16 years of being un-committed to a man, I don't think any loving moments between us are too much). I want to give you all hope that what you seek is out there. Truly. I felt like having my love at home with me was ... all my dreams coming true, and some parts are just too precious and fulfilling to put how it feels into words.

I read my personal journal entry from January 2018 (before EFW.) I had written my goals for the year, one of them was that (a new relationship) and that a great love of my life would propose in a surprising and magical way. Every single goal I wrote about in detail this way came true for me in 2018. I'll do the same practice for my 2019, I'm so thankful to be entering 2019 with all of you here at EFW!  ❤” (her photos below!)

***2. Boundaries.*** 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍I did not understand what 'leaning back' was properly or 'boundaries' at first. I thought, Why would I set boundaries if I'm leaning back, that makes no sense. Isn't leaning back about 'being cool' and giving space? What do boundaries have to do with space? 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍Also, because I 'don't have the right to exist at all,' I should be happy even receiving someone's crumbs, what right do I have to set boundaries? Then I could lose even the crumbs, what a terrifying idea. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍This led to me not setting boundaries for well over a year with my man, as he grew increasingly more narcissistic in some ways, boy-like, not only taking less leadership on but going back on his word in other areas too. It was a nightmare. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍I even broke up with him for 8 weeks during EFWI. Well you better believe I set boundaries then and there, like a Goddess (not like a jerk - which was my past life way of doing it, if I did it at all - it came out in a fiery explosion of over-due boundary setting). 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍He stepped up like NO tomorrow after that. He bought us a house, he changed locations. He took up leadership. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍But mistakenly? I went back to my old ways, thinking I have to 'lean back' so much and be cool. Guess what.... He starts showing low value behaviors again - not taking care of the house, complaining about his health, his job, his life, his mom. Making his problems my problems. Expecting me to lead and take care of things. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍Well, almost a month ago I laid down my boundaries again. Very Firmly. And I get now what it means to do this in a feminine way, I tell him how his actions make me FEEL, I don't demand he change, I tell him that I'll have to step away as my needs aren't being met. There are no threats, no ultimatums, no low value tactics. Just a conversation of These are my needs and my boundaries, this is what I accept and reject. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍I think boundaries turn him on. Because he has stepped up yet AGAIN on new things this time. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍There's some growth necessary with him because when we met, he still lived at home. He's had to learn and grow through moving out to a condo, and now to a house, and he hasn't inherently *known* how to do these life tasks the way I do (having lived on my own from a young age). But each time we uplevel, and he doesn't step up, it seems me having the boundary discussion has him catch up to our new level - and then surpass me in the leadership department. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍He is now taking supplements, has more energy, signed up to a boxing studio, started fixing issues with his mom, is not complaining about it to me anymore, is enjoying his work and appreciating it (rather than complaining), is taking initiative on reno projects and chores and more. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍He WANTS to be a Masculine leader, and I can tell, his Dad died and he didn't have a role model in this department, his mom emasculated him. But I see him growing because of me becoming more feminine. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍

***3. Third thing I got from EWFI - 

A Sense of PEACE and Safety with a man.***

These two times I really set boundaries, the man my man became - I have never in my life felt this way about a man. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍I used to think people got married 'just because' it was the next step. When he proposed to me 1.5 years ago I said yes but was still terrified (hence why I joined EFWI). 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍I never felt like I'd ever find a man that I'd truly feel happy to marry or fulfilled with. I loved him and had multiple levels of attraction to him but I didn't get why people got married. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍I'd see my girlfriends getting married, swooning over their men and I just didn't get it.

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍Seeing my man step up has elicited such a sense of calm and peacefulness in me. I have no doubts now that he adores me and is attracted to me - he shows me now through actions, affection, touch, his words. I have no doubts he would step up and do things for our family. And I think that's what was in my way - doubt. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍I wasn't being feminine, I was using low value tactics, and none of it brought out the Hero in my man. It just pushed us further into me being masculine and him being lazy as hell. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍Now I have that and I *COMPLETELY* get it. I completely get why a woman would marry a man. When he is this way, I don't have eyes for anyone else. I am completely fulfilled. Marrying him becomes a no brainer. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍This is what I created out of the Embodied Feminine Woman Institute. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ I routinely refer my patients to it. I get nothing out of this other than seeing you succeed. I think we are reclaiming our femininity as a society, and allowing our men to reclaim their masculinity, and this is so important. I want my daughter to have that to model after. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍I write this because maybe you too stand to get a lot out of it, not just a dream relationship with a man, but also with yourself. 

‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍PS - I feel no shame or guilt about myself anymore. I actually weigh my heaviest right now (which is not that much but still) yet have more self love, radiance and confidence than ever. Learning that your Power all comes from INSIDE of you, and none of it from the external - is the best thing ever. None of your Worth is reliant on things outside of you and I can't believe how powerful, radiant and beautiful that makes me feel.

*Growth moment* My heart is so overwhelmed with gratitude to the point I’ve been sobbing happy tears the last half hour. It feels so good to see my own growth in multiple ways. I’m so proud of myself and happy for the possibilities in front of me. While I was home for Christmas my family actually had a blow up with my mom. The whole time, I was able to stay centered in my heart and express my boundaries while also expressing empathy. I didn’t get caught up in the keeping score of who did what when. I just went straight to the root of what was happening in my heart and my mom’s heart and let her have her time to process her own stuff. I kept it short, sweet, and honest and just let it be. The response I got back from my mom was waaaay different from the building heated back and forth everyone else got from her. And I felt good about myself the entire time knowing that I was giving myself exactly what I needed. I also had another super cool moment of realizing how some childhood stories of being the invisible, never chosen twin have played out in other spaces that kept me from feeling like I was loved and liked. And really I was very much loved and liked and always have been. I just couldn’t see/feel/receive it before.  And as for dating, I’ve noticed how I would have jumped on the opportunity to be exclusive with someone I liked before now. Now, I take my time. Even though I very much wanted to say yes to the last three asks to be exclusive by the newest man I’ve been posting about. And I’m not playing hard to get with him either. I just want to be sure this is a good decision for me before I shut down all the wonderful options coming my way on all my other profiles. And he’s been sooo wonderful and dreamy and attentive this whole time. Very much energy coming toward me in the yummiest ways. I can’t even tell you all the sweet things he says and does on the daily. He loves to tell me to “ask my heart” about stuff, and it makes me laugh so hard. (He listened to a few minutes of Gio introducing a topic with me, and that’s what he got out of it.) And he’s so serious when he says it to me. It’s adorable. I don’t know where this will go with him specifically, but I feel so good about my ability to call in high value men. I’m very much enjoying how organic this feels with him claiming more and more of my time while I get to just decide if this is a good fit for me instead of trying so hard to make something happen or move forward.

Ladies, guess what?! I'm engaged to a very high-value man! He is everything Gio teaches us here about attracting and keeping. I'm a very lucky girl 😊 He's everything I've ever wanted and more than I could ever dream of having. ❤️ I just wanted to share with everyone here. Great things are possible, and the right one will not leave you hanging and wondering where you stand with each other. We have a very open communication line, and while we might not appreciate and like everything that's said at times right away, we always work it out and make things better than before.
