And nodding, and laughing and even taking some notes.
This is NOT highly intellectual. It may not be 100% new material. What it does do is package its message in a way that is workable, applicable, engaging and enjoyable to read.
I found myself mildly annoyed in certain paragraphs though it certainly was not enough for me to set aside all the goodness just because of that.
It would be like turning down some double chocolate fudge because I didn't like the serving dish. Just not the right response.
Enjoy yourself no matter what the circumstances. Treat yourself on good days and especially crap days. Create a pleasure basket with goodies you'd enjoy for a trip, your purse, and your bedroom with snacks, toys, and whatever else that might strike your fancy. Play fun, inspiring music. Be confident; It will attract luck to you. Be gentle to yourself and others,not war-seeking (drama is not attractive). Write yourself a gushing love letter and read it often. Move your body like you mean it. Dress your best every single day. Celebrate your unique fabulousness. Screw the naysayers (not literally). Basically, treat yourself the way you want others to treat you, and you will attract the people and circumstances. You don't have to be loud-mouthed and diva-ish about it like her. You can be stealthily fabulous with your confident poise and actions. By treating yourself like a princess/queen/goddess, you are sending a message to the world that you deserve it.
How to win over and keep a man: Let him know when he's right. Give him a challenge to solve. Acknowledge his efforts. Let him know how you'd like to be pleasured. Celebrate him when he does. Repeat.
She graphically goes into spreading out your nether-regions to explore your body, then decorating it with glitter and colour pens, which in essence gives a good message in self-awareness and appreciation, but her delivery in this aspect is quite silly. Some might find it audacious.
You don't really need her exorbitantly-priced $5,000 program.Read more ›
This is a first class spiritual book. If you read carefully and look beneath the "darlings" and "beauties," you will actually see The Beloved smiling at you, beckoning you to enlightenment. If you are not spiritually inclined, you may well miss the invitation.
Do you have any idea that the following chapter titles are spiritual laws taught from Big Sur to Tibet? "Decide That Wherever You Are Is the Right Place To Be"; "Love Your Flesh"; "Expose What You Truly Feel"; "Follow Your Divine Intuition." To just name a few.
Mama Gena turns words that we Americans have come to distrust into truthful makeovers that give them a whole new upgrade in deeper meaning -- words like pleasure, greed, flirt, brag. For example, she says, "Flirtation is nothing more or less than enthusiastic self-love." And she makes you see that indeed it is! She takes the slightly sexual word, "gratify" and expands it into a soul-searing insight: "We behave badly only when we are profoundly ungratified." This has nothing to do with selfishness and one can see just how "gratified" Mother Teresa was or the Dali Lhama is with their lives! Mama Gena elaborates: "Becoming a lawyer or an accountant, or a secretary just to make your rent does not make the world a better place or you a happier person. Living your dream does." And she spends 181 pages teaching you how, beginning with the two most important laws of all: loving yourself and being yourself.
Yes, there's sex in it, but you can't be on a spiritual path for long without learning that sex is perhaps the most divine act of all.Read more ›
Thus it was sort of a shock to read her thoughts and how comfortable she is being a blatantly sexual person.
But I decided to open my mind to what Mama Gena shares in her book and I must say she has changed my outlook on life!
The goal of the book is to teach women to celebrate their gloriousness. She believes that many of us have let pleasure slip away. But we can become magnets with the power to attract good things by becoming attuned to our sensuality.
Mama Gena (Regena Thomashauer) feels women are Goddesses and should be treated as such. What do you enjoy? Do it. Of course there are many self-help books that support trying to discover your dreams. But Mama lends a new twist. She teaches you how to become attuned to your mystical and creative powers, to be fully in touch with your sensuality so you can be transformed into a glowing Goddess. As a woman pleasure is your birthright!
Buy yourself gifts, brag, flirt. Too much time in our lifes is spent focusing on what is wrong with ourselves according to Mama. Within the pages of her book are exercises, and inspiration to help you fufill your potential.
I read about Mama Gena in a popular woman's magazine. Apparently taking a course with her runs in the hundreds of dollars. But women report remarkable results, promotions, new beaus, weight loss and more.
Now you can fully enhance your feminity and claim the pleasure you deserve for the small price of the book!

LOVE this book. It's a bit raunchy in some parts, so be prepared. But that's life, and just what you would expect if you were having a woman-to-woman chat about life. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Em Zebra
