006: How to reignite passion and desire after postpartum depression with Lauren Venable

006: How to reignite passion and desire after postpartum depression with Lauren Venable

In today’s interview episode, Lauren Venable and I talk about postpartum depression, the loneliness of motherhood in the early days and how Lauren got matched with a counselor/energy healer that was able to help her get out of her undiagnosed depression.

 

In the interview, Lauren shares how it took 3 counseling sessions before she could even answer the question: “What do you want?” and how she went into counseling thinking she needed to fix her marriage only to be surprised that it was more about learning how to take care of herself.

 

She also shares how difficult it was to admit the level of support she needed in order to feel like a happy, whole, passionate and radiant woman again. We also talk about how your radiance and light is a much greater gift than your selfless service ever could be.

 

Learn how Lauren was able to reignite her passion and desire after struggling with undiagnosed postpartum depression as she chose to sit with fear, instead of waiting to overcome it.

 

Lauren is a meditation junkie on a mission to help women experience more wholeness, passion, and self-love in their lives. She graduated with a BA in Psychology in 2011 and went on to become a certified Yoga Instructor before settling in as a wife and stay-at-home mom at 24.

 

After 2 years of quietly struggling with Postpartum Anxiety & Depression, she began her journey of self-healing and become a certified Reiki Practitioner in 2015. Since then she has used meditation, energy healing, and empowered storytelling to overcome anxiety, depression, and deep-seeded insecurity.

 

When her marriage ended in late 2015, she knew it could do one of two things: break her down or break her open. She chose to be cracked wide open and transformed. Since then, she has built two successful businesses, worked through some major heart (& life) healing, and cultivated a deep sense of self-worth, passion, and excitement in her day-to-day life.

 

Through her private coaching/energy healing sessions, group programs, and online courses, she has seen so many women return home to themselves & discover a new way of meeting the world and the curve balls that it throws their way. Her clients have transformed their marriages, overcome depression & anxiety, made peace with their bodies, and discovered an inner source of power & wisdom to create positive change in their lives.

003: 12 ways to rewrite the narrative on sex and motherhood

003: 12 ways to rewrite the narrative on sex and motherhood

For the past year, I’ve learned the one thing above all else that MUST be in place in order to reclaim the fullness of your sexuality while mothering – sisterhood.

 

But, I’ve also learned 11 other key things that must happen to rewrite the narrative of sex and motherhood. In today’s episode, I’m going to show you 12 things you must have in order to experience rapid transformation in the area of sex/love/relationships.

 

In this episode, I lay out a blueprint you can model to re-write the narrative on sex and motherhood within your mama tribe – a sort of container, a safe space to re-write this story not just for you, but for the collective.

 

Here are the 12 keys in short-order:

  • No more competition, find true sisterhood
  • Create a container of accountability and predictability to share stories and reflect and hold space for other woman
  • When your needs are met first, you can help others meet there’s
  • Educate yourself on sex and money – Consider how little you were actually taught about either.
  • Define what a successful relationship means to you
  • Uplevel how you love, relate and communicate in partnership
  • Learn to ask for what you want
  • Understand that you’re worth investing in and taking care of – you are your best asset
  • Do the basics to survive and then do what scares you to thrive
  • Learn the difference between your authentic yes and authentic no
  • Understand that sexual energy is the energy of life – if it’s not moving through you, your creative and energetic flow will feel cut off and you’ll be tired all the time
  • Realize that all emotions are inherently good even the bad ones

 

Books I mentioned:

Come as You Are – Emily Nagowski

Vagina – Naomi Wolf

Pussy – Regina Thomashauer

Wild Feminine – Tami Lynn Kent

Money, A Love Story – Kate Northrup

Getting the Love You Want – Harville Hendrix

001: Meet Lacey Broussard – sex, love, and relationship coach for moms

The Multiorgasmic Mama Podcast is finally here!

In this very first episode of The Multiorgasmic Mama Podcast, I share with you the story of how and why being born and raised in South Louisiana in a conservative Christian environment led me to become a sex, love, and relationship coach for moms, Tantra and jade egg teacher, and why I named the podcast “The Multiorgasmic Mama.”

In this episode, I talk about my religious upbringing and how it effected how I felt about being born a woman, teenage love and the fear of abandonment, birth stories and how they cracked me wide open, sexual awakening through the jade egg and Tantra with my husband, what’s possible in the realm of relationships as we step into a new paradigm of how we love, relate and communicate with ourselves and our partners, and the taboo around sex and motherhood and how I aim to break it.

Episode mentions:

Julie Hughes soul midwife

Jenn Burton dating coach

Layla Martin tantra teacher

Marie Forleo b-school program

Now, it’s your turn to go grab yourself a cup of tea or coffee and listen by the fire or get outside and go for a run while you listen for a weekly dose of inspiration. You can listen right here from my website or from the Libsyn link here. Due to issues with submitting the podcast to iTunes, you won’t be able to find it in there just yet. Hopefully next week. In the meantime, stay tuned!

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed creating it!

To your pleasure mama,

The Four Phases of Desire Part 2: Slow Down

The Four Phases of Desire Part 2: Slow Down

(Inspired by Kate Northrup’s recent four-part blog series on the phases of creation, I bring you the second part of my four-part blog series on the phases of desire, sexual desire, in particular. (If you missed part one, click here.) We all have desire at some point in our lives, some times more than others. Just like the phases of the moon, and the planting seasons, a woman’s desire is cyclical, like her menstrual cycle. The level of a woman’s sexual desire is often dependent on what phase of the menstrual cycle she’s in.)

 

Are you good at agreeing to a night of love-making and then not following through with it in the end because you’re too tired and exhausted?

 

Sometimes, I give myself a high-five for getting 4 kids through a day without a hospital visit.

 

And that means I’ve put so much energy into my kids that at the end of the day, I just.don’t.feel.like.it. all the time.

 

Know what I mean?

 

But what if there was no goal for love making? What if the pressure was off and you slowed everything down instead? How would that affect your follow through? Would you be more excited about a night of really slow, sensual, relaxing love making?

 

In today’s 3 minute video, you’ll learn:

 

  • How the slowing down phase of desire is akin to autumn/the luteal phase of your cycle/the waning moon
  • What to do when you’re in the slowing down phase of desire
  • The benefits of slowing down
  • How to use the slowing down phase of desire to turn numbness and pain into sensation and pleasure

 

No matter what phase of desire you’re in, it’s important to honor where you are.

 

Don’t know how to ask him to slow down?

You know summer’s here when mom guilt sinks in.

 

Mom guilt for allowing the kids WAY more screen time than should be legal…

 

So you can work on launching your new project or business in as much peace and quiet as possible.

 

Well, last week, summer hit the Broussard house.

 

I was mom-frazzled by Wednesday struggling working from home and giving kids attention simultaneously.

 

One task I did manage to complete was a survey on sex and motherhood.

 

I asked women what their biggest struggles were in sex, love, and relationships after having kids.

 

38 respondents later, I was surprised at the results.

 

Learn what I discovered here !

 

In the 5 minute video you’ll learn:

 

  • The top 3 issues moms face in sex, love, and relationships after having kids
  • The 4 phases of desire and how the receiving phase of desire is akin to summer/the ovulation phase of your cycle/the full moon
  • How your cycle affects your desire
  • What to do when you’re in the receiving phase of desire
  • The benefits of receiving

No matter what phase of desire you’re in, it’s important to honor where you are.

 

Afraid to ask for what you want? Don’t know how to relax into receiving?

How to Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Body

How to Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Body

Do you often feel overwhelmed with your never ending to-do list?

Maybe ease and flow seem far off because you have a hard time getting out of your head when you want to be present with your partner or kids or in your yoga/meditation/spiritual practice.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with thinking, or with your thoughts…as a busy mama a few people might depend on you to get that to-do list done. But, sometimes, you’d love to turn it off for a moment to be more present and sensitive to what’s going on in the hear and now or in your body.

But, never being able to turn it off really dampens your experience of pleasure, of intimacy, a yoga practice, birthing a baby, or when you really just wanna be present with yourself or with your kids or a loved one.

My favorite + easiest + quickest tool to get out of your head and into your body is called Body Meditation and I tell you all about it and show you a quick demo of how to do it in the video below. Check it out here!

Tapping into ease and flow is SO much easier when you bring on board the wisdom of your body and your intuition, but that’s really hard to do if you have a hard time getting out of your head.

I hope you’ll take advantage of my FREE 10minute Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Body Guided Meditation so you can tap into ease and flow on a more regular basis. All you have to do is put your name and email in the box below or to the right and I’ll email you the link right away!

Enjoy!

With so much love,

Lacey
