SELF CARE

“Self-care is building a life you don’t need to regularly escape from.”

As a mum of three, more than half of my life has centred around my children. I know how it can feel to have a disconnect between the life you are living, and the life you dream of living. I want to help you find time for yourself because it’s your time to grow and bloom. 

I’ve been on my own, personal journey from adversity to healing. Embracing my inner feminine and blooming into the courageous and kind woman I am today. Like you, I spent too many years putting others first, giving so much of myself to my family, friends, and work, all the while, wondering if I was enough. One day, I stepped into a dried flower workshop where I felt like all my tightness unravelled for the first time. It was like I was a flower ready to bloom. The feeling of blooming I experienced that day, opened a desire within me to live my whole life feeling like that. It showed me that life could be, and is, extraordinary. I let go of the labels people had given me, and questioned the labels I had given myself. I gave myself permission to be my authentic self, and no longer measure myself by our society’s definition of success. I am many things, a mother, a partner, a business owner, but above all else, I am Desley. I love all things pretty, pink and floral. I am drawn to the ethereal, embrace my feminine energy, and am my authentic self unapologetically and without judgment. There’s a power that comes with embracing the gentleness and softness of your feminine essence. As an ICF certified Professional Transformative Coach, with a Certificate in Creating Positive Change, over ten years of leadership experience in the education sector, and “Dare to Lead” and Sister Circle training, I want to help you rekindle your relationship with yourself and remember all the things that make you extraordinary. I know that experiencing blooming is available to every person – this is absolutely possible for you too. I would love to guide you on your journey to give back to yourself, embrace your feminine power, and bloom into your most authentic self. Together, we can build a meaningful life that you don’t need a regular reprieve from.

TEND & BEFRIEND

Did you know that when research was initially conducted on the fight or flight response in humans, women weren’t included? That means that the data we have about this stress response may accurately represent what happens to the men around us, but doesn’t necessarily capture what happens to us as women. As it turns out, now that research has been conducted on how women respond to stressful situations, we don’t instinctively jump to fight or flight – we need to tend and befriend. In times of stress, women feel drawn to tend to themselves, their families, and the space around them, or they need to befriend – make or take comfort in friendships with the powerful women in their circle. Think about it, what was your response the last time you felt stressed and overwhelmed? Did you call a friend, or maybe stress-tidy your house? And, in lockdown, when you were cut off from your circle, did that exacerbate your stress, maybe more than the men in your life? It turns out, that is normal! 

Blushing Feminine Bloom n Wellness’ Tend and Befriend is all about making those meaningful connections with other women, and tending to each other so that we’re all better equipped in times of stress. It’ll look like regular gatherings of like-minded women, getting together in person, or via Zoom, sharing coffee, talking, and occasionally trying out creative projects like dried flower arranging, or whatever else your circle feels drawn to. It’s about tending to your femininity, supporting your intuition, and embracing your unique essence. Join a gathering at a time and place that works for you, and start tending and befriending.

TIME TO BLOOM

Are you ready to BLOOM? 

Are you ready to open, fully embrace and share your beauty with the world? Are you ready to feel expansive and filled with the extraordinary? Are you someone who has spent too many years putting others first, giving so much of yourself to your family, friends, and work while wondering if you were enough? Do you crave a life that you don’t need to regularly escape from? Have you been wondering if this is as good as it gets?  Have you asked yourself what you could be doing, if you weren’t living how you live now? Are you ready to scream, “What about what I want?” But the words don’t come out. Do you have everything you believed that you needed to be happy, but there’s still a nagging feeling that something is missing, you’re just not sure what…

Would taking time to truly nurture yourself, explore your very essence and remember what makes you you help?

Embracing my inner feminine and blooming into the courageous and kind woman I am today. I know how overwhelming it feels to open yourself up to discover what you truly need, but I will provide a space for you to explore, without judgment. I will hold space for you to open your mind, and heart, and discover what is truly possible for you. There’s a power that comes with embracing the gentleness and softness of your feminine essence.

SISTER CIRCLE

Blushing Feminine Bloom n Wellness Sister Circles are a unique take on the Global Sisterhood Circles. I’m Desley, and I have experienced the beautiful strength that comes with embodying your femininity and feeling connected to a sisterhood. I trained as a Global Sisterhood Sister Circles facilitator to share this power with more women and make a positive change in the world. Sister Circles are traditional monthly rituals, during the new or full moons, that nurture healing and awakening within ourselves, while connecting with, and honouring our inner feminine, and the feminine in those around us. A chance to rise into your feminine power, gain clarity, and confidence and feel a deep connection with yourself and your sisterhood. As women, we are cyclic and feminine beings. Throughout history, women gathered in circles to heal, connect, and teach. Living in a masculine world, it’s easy to feel disconnected from the power of the feminine inside us. Joining a monthly ritual Sister Circle can help you feel more in tune with yourself, embrace your feminine energy, meditate on previous experiences, and prepare for the month ahead. Sister Circles will empower you to:

Fiercely stand by your boundaries. 

Connect with your inner feminine. 

Trust your intuition. 

Value yourself, and attract others who value you too.

Be part of a circle of support that extends beyond the rituals. 

Feel ready to share your beauty with the world. There’s no commitment to join every month, but being part of the Sister Circles regularly will deepen the support you feel in your sisterhood. Interested in giving it a go? Join a Sister Circle online, or in person here.
