Description

Feminism, but connected. The Divine Feminist is a deep dive into feminism for today; the kind of movement that recognises the everyday struggles as symptoms rather than causes of our toxically unbalanced society. So how do we fix that? By reconnecting with ourselves and remembering that there is another way... a way to the sacred balance that represents the road to fulfilment for each of us, and paves the way to a more balanced and fulfilling world.

It's so easy to think that this journey from restriction to expansion is a simple, linear path. But in reality that's rarely the case. We have all experienced our fair share of frustrations, disappointments and unexpected outcomes along the way, and will undoubtedly experience more on the road ahead of us. But so often, finding ourselves in those places will either see us curled up in a ball too afraid to move forwards, or faced with people who tell us to keep going no matter how we may be feeling. Neither is necessarily the right answer. And each can be as damaging to us and our journey to self-alignment as the other. In this week's episode of the Divine Feminist we look at exactly this; acknowledging and dealing with the challenges presented to us on this journey in the way that is truly right for us.

Having broken free of our restrictions and moved into a place of our own expansion, this week's episode of the Divine Feminist asks us all to consider what comes next? Or, more specifically, what could come next?  After all, when it comes to expanding our lives further and further, one thing that is often likely to rear its head for us is the simple question, "what if?"  And although all too often that question will be one of fear; the two words that try to remind us of how scary the world could be if and when we dare to take a step outside of the ordinary, there is another way.  So this week, Ceryn invites you to see that question in a different way. To embrace the energy of possibility and allow your what-ifs to become the keys that open up new doors and opportunities, rather than the barriers that keep you small.  Join her for a discussion into the idea of possibility, and how we can all invite more of that into each and every day of our lives.

What would it mean to take up proudly and unapologetically space?That's something we're so often deterred from; from the childhood conditioning that tells us to stay quiet; to the societal rules that remind us to look, think and behave a certain way and convince us that we should simply be grateful for the space we are offered. It can lead us to believe that asking for more is ungracious, rude and to the detriment of other people. I'm here to remind you that those stories were never true; and never in our best interest. And what's more, I'm here to remind you that it's time you stepped out of the shadows, broke free of the restrictions those have led to and claimed your space in this world and this life wholly, completely and unapologetically as you are. Episode notes As mentioned in the introduction to this episode, Ceryn is thrilled to be offering a number of free Soul Sessions this month - a 45-minute chance for you to join her for a 1:1 chat about your own journey back to alignment.

Fresh from our deep dive into the subject of restriction, The Divine Feminist moves to focus on where we find ourselves outside of those walls, and invites you to consider what the idea of expansion means to you.After years, generations and lifetimes of being told to stay small, that concept can feel challenging at best and completely alien at worst, but is something that is so important to consider as we all continue this journey towards a new balanced world.Join Ceryn to consider what natural, flowing expansion means to you, and how you can begin to align yourself more fully with that energy of expansion from and in a place of your own wholeness. Episode notes Within this episode, Ceryn references two books specifically:We Should All Be Millionaires by Rachel Rodgers, andThe Big Leap by Gay Hendricks.If the journey of your own aligned expansion is something you want to lean into more deeply, then head over to The Divine Feminist Community for support and guidance.

Continuing the theme of restriction from our last episode, Ceryn invites you to consider what it takes to break through (/ fly over/ escape from) those walls that have for so long been placed around us... Not to consider what we may find when we do. The decision to step outside of the known and carve a path of our own can be a terrifying one, even more so when we consider the persecution that so many have experienced, and continue to experience, for doing just that. But the wildness that exists outside of those walls isn't just being talked about now, but is being encouraged by some in society. So is it time we broke through those walls once and for all? Allowing every one of them to crumble so that we can all live a life of possibility and freedom, now and in future?Episode notes Within this episode, Ceryn references Starseed Sacred Circle, the first book from her friend and teacher Yolandi Boshoff (and sister to the forthcoming Divine Feminist book!).

What if the world was always meant to be more than we've been told? More than that, what if each and every one of us was always able to be more than we've been told?Our societies are often all-too-keen to give us the blueprint of how we could be, of what is possible for us if only we buy and achieve the "right" things, act and look the "right" way and follow the well-beaten path to happiness and success. But what if that path was only ever meant to take us part of the way?From the Garden of Eden to the cage of consumerism, Ceryn talks about the ways in which our ways is keeping us small - even when it promises us expansion. From the demonisation of the first woman and our own patron Goddess Lilith to the imposter syndrome that might just be trying to connect us with our own fullness, this episode invites us to think bigger, rise up and look for more as we consider life outside of the walls of what we've been told is paradise.

As we venture into  Gemini season, it is time to talk about all things air. And with Ceryn having finally completed the manuscript of the Divine Feminist book, it seems the perfect time to talk about the subject of using your voices.  No, this isn't a "how to write a book" episode, nor is it a "you should start a podcast and here is how", but instead is an invitation for you to consider your voice and how and where it is shared in the world. After all, between old wounding, lifelong conditioning and the parameters we are given for what makes someone "worthy" of sharing their voices, there is often so much holding us back from speaking what is right, true and important for us. Join Ceryn on this week's episode as she invites you on a deep dive into this subject and reminds you of just how much power there is waiting to be heard in your voice. Episode notes In this episode, Ceryn talks about the soon-to-launch Divine Feminist community. For the latest news on that be sure to sign up for the Divine Feminist newsletter.

As we move into the Earth energies of Taurus season, Ceryn invites you to journey with her around the idea of beauty.That word in itself may trigger something in you around a concept that has for so long been weaponised against us and used to play us off against one another. And certainly to even talk about the idea of beauty we have to dive into that concept of physical attractiveness which has become so conflated with it. But what if we considered the broader idea of a beauty that fills us and what it means for us to align with that experience within our daily lives?

As we continue our Aries season journey with the qualities and concepts associated with fire, Ceryn invites you to consider the power of your own creativity.So often we're told that creativity is a label which references only a limited number of activities, all associated with beauty and art, all of which are considered a "waste of time" unless we are "good" at or able to make money with them.But to see the force of creativity through such limited terms is to rob them - and us - of the power that creativity has to offer to us, our lives and the world.From beauty to wildness, Ceryn surrenders the structure of this one to her creativity and invites you to consider the power of your own creative force along the way.Episode notes As Ceryn prepares to launch the Divine Feminist Community, this week's episode comes with a sneak peek of what you can expect from that source.

As we navigate our way through Aries season, when better to connect with the elemental energy of fire and with one of the emotions most closely associated with fire: Rage.Rage is and can be a powerful force, and maybe that's why our world is so keen to keep it under wraps, encouraging us to feel scared or ashamed of our own anger.Yet journeying through that fear and shame to understand and befriend our true rage can bring us so much; insight into our passions and unhealed sadness; an understanding of the societal messaging in us that still needs to be unpicked; and perhaps most importantly of all the fire that ignites our drive to change the world. Come with me on a journey to befriend your true rage.

Trigger warning: The introduction to today's episode contains mention of recent news around Meghan Markle and Sarah Everard, including a content trigger warning for racism, suicide and violence against women.Fresh from a journey into the idea of choice and expectation, Ceryn invites us to dive into a discussion of our our legacies within this life.From the  passions and overall purposes that drive us to the everyday actions that will form stories long after we're gone, it's time for us to consider the legacies we're creating for ourselves, those that will follow, and maybe even the wider world around us.Episode notes In this episode Ceryn again references Danielle LaPorte's work around Core Desired Feelings.

TRIGGER WARNING: Within this episode is a brief mention of abortion, which is spoken about for approximately two minutes at around the 36 minute mark. The world we live in likes to set us very clear expectations. Wherever we are and whatever roles we do or don't take on, you can guarantee we'll be given - subtly or otherwise - a checklist of what it means to "succeed". Yet the path to fulfillment is never and should never be the same for everyone. So how to we break free of those expectations in order to truly understand what that path looks like for us? And then how do we go about making the changes that will put us onto those paths for ourselves. In today's episode Ceryn goes on to speak about choice, and invites us all to dispel the myths that a choice must be "perfect", not only for now but for always; and that we must be happy and comfortable with the choices we make. Bringing it all together we consider the journey back to ourselves and our truth; from the Fool or Novice setting out on their journey back to that place of unification with all of the wisdom that is available within us.Episode notes In this episode Ceryn references the Major Arcana of the Tarot, specifically the Fool and World cards. The deck she reads from is the Modern Witch Tarot by Lisa Sterle. Ceryn mentions the Everyday Goddess Revolution Project that she is involved with.For more on the free Everyday Goddess Revolution Summit taking place on 8th March, visit the project website here.To pre-order the book on Amazon.co.uk click here.Or to pre-order on Amazon.com, click here.To sign up for the Divine Feminist newsletter, visit the website at www.divinefeminist.com/the-newsletter.And remember, to keep up with the latest from Ceryn and the podcast follow @divine.feminist on Instagram.Music is Start again, copyright Alex (2014), sourced through YouTube and available to hear in full here.
Putting boundaries on our time and energy is one of the most important things we can do to care for and respect ourselves. But in a world that so regularly tells us we should be caregivers whose worth is judged by their productivity and by how exhausted they are at the end of a week, the whole subject can be tough.From stepping back from the constant busy-ness for long enough to discern what our needs are to bucking the trends of society and expectations of those around us enough to put those containers for ourselves in place, the work of understanding and implementing those boundaries can at times feel as draining as the possibility of continuing. In this week's episode, Ceryn shares insights gained from her experience of burning out, the lessons she's learned along the way and the ways in which boundary setting can be a vital part of not only self care and creating a life of greater balance and fulfilment; but also of reminding the rest of the world to do the same. Consider this a reminder that your time and your energy are important; that you are worthy of boundaries, and an invitation to consider how those would look for you. Episode notes Within this episode Ceryn mentions the great work of The Nap Ministry.

Once something heard only in the most spiritual of conversations, those from all walks of life are increasingly realising the importance of grounding themselves and their energies. In a world so full of noise and mistruth, it's never been easier for us to be distracted, caught up in anxiety or thrown off course, making it more important than ever to root ourselves deep into the Earth, the present moment and our own truth.But what does grounding really mean, what are the benefits of a regular grounding process for ourselves and this planet we call home? Check out this week's episode of the Divine Feminist to hear Ceryn's thoughts on the subject.

What does the word power conjure up for you?For so many of us it's something that the chosen few have access to; the prize offered to those who won the lottery of privilege or checked off the qualities on a list that immediately gives them permission to control others around them.But who says that's the case? And what if that were to change?From presidents to witchcraft and superheroes to the coaching industry, Ceryn delves into the subject of power and invites you to consider the power you have, to change not just your life but maybe even the wider world.The Divine Feminist will be taking a few short weeks break after this week's episode, but hit subscribe or follow @divine.feminist on Instagram to make sure you're the first to know when we return!Episode notes Ceryn recently wrote about the seven powers of witchcraft for Elephant Journal.

The world likes to tell us our fears are bad.   It likes to tell us they're unnecessary and evil and more than likely need to be vanquished like some sort of beasts that are actively working to keep us from our full potential. But what if that's not the case?  Lately I've come to believe that our fears have been given a pretty bad rap; that in fact maybe they're the gatekeepers of our potential - the voices that can signpost us towards our true fulfillment.  And what's more, I've come to believe that the key to removing ourselves and moving forwards on the road to our dreams isn't in hiding from or fighting our fears, but in befriending them and moving forwards together - bringing those gatekeepers along for the ride.   Listen to this week's episode for more on this, and the four questions you can ask to befriend your fears.  Episode notes Ceryn has written about the subject of fear for Thrive Global.

At the start of each episode I ask "how are you? How are you really?"This week with my hand on my own heart the answer came through plain and simple: "Exhausted." I'd like to tell you I listened first time around, but as you'll hear, that wasn't quite the case. Let's talk about why that is; about why so many of us have a problem with stopping, pausing and giving ourselves the permission to take a break.And meanwhile listen as I share my story - and the stories of so many of those I've worked with - about moving from that place of constant action into the golden feeling of resting, of pausing, of simply being.Episode notes Within this mini episode Ceryn speaks about the fantastic Nap Ministry.
