Healing: Ovaries, Uterus, Female Reproductive Organs

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

Chances are that if you are an organically born female, you have an ovary, or two, plus other relevant female anatomy. Some little girls dream of growing up, getting married, having babies. And some don't want to. Don't want to grow up, don't want the responsibility, the anxiety, definitely don't want want to have children and definitely want nothing to do with sexual activity, at least outwardly. For women who can recall some sort of childhood conflict with our divine feminine, in our youth we may have perceived that sexuality and giving birth was at best embarrassing and at worst, shameful, dirty and...

Why Am I Still Here?

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

Sometimes we feel stuck. My story is that I do not feel stuck in my life, but lately I've been having chronic dreams, unresolved dreams, mixing in past relationships, that leave me with the impression of feeling stuck again.  At least this time, I feel curious about the stuckness rather than miserable and imprisoned. Curiosity, I believe, did not kill the cat, but rather, saved her. Dreams, among other things, are a means to heal us...aka enable us to release feelings that we repressed in our past. They allow us to request, seek, and receive that which we wanted but did...

And most of us in Western culture chronically live in a low grade of self inflicted torture. What we didn't realize was that we were 1) taught to constantly berate ourselves in the guise of improvement, which has 2) kept us hurt, fighting, efforting, suffering and 3) that this subliminally installed mechanism has allowed...

How to Heal: Underlying Current of Emotion: ROOT CHAKRA

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

I was faced with responding to a negative review on Yelp the other day, a negative review of my family's business Rubini Jewelers. A business that I love to be in both because of the innate creativity involved, and because I love our customers. They are sometimes gentle, sometimes anxious, sometimes loving, sometimes open, enthusiastic, worried, psyched, creative...everything human and endearing. So when we received a poor review, I felt immediately off balance. My livelihood felt threatened, my family felt attacked, I wanted to defend the issues the review brought up with ferocity. But, I created exactly what the reviewer offered:...

Body Love, Shame, Hate, Pride

Body Love, Shame, Hate, Pride

We are all here, blessed on earth as little sentient intelligent beings, most of us reading this are in the form of human bodies. That's my topic, let's go: there's much talk in the spiritually awakened field about how we are not our bodies. Almost as if, to be perceived as spiritually awakened beings or to become a spiritual awakened being, we must let go of all attachment to our bodies. On the other hand, most of us running around with chronic  Western culture stress, and physical aches and pains, and constant striving for body perfection or chronic body shame,...
