[The Empress🌹] "I've never heard anyone describe exercise in those terms before," says Josh, old friend, of @Jess__Naim, new friend. He laughs, shaking his head, clearly entertained. "There were a lot of things awakening." Indeed.//She's in my neighborhood, says her text, if I want to hang out. Come over, I reply. We're about to start a kettlebell workout out front. She's not dressed for it, but she's in anyway.//And so it is that a few minutes later, she strolls up in what Josh labels "David Bowie boots": royal blue leather with a sharp, pointy toe, and a little tiny bit of a heel -- not totally unlike lifting shoes, I reason. Together, the three of us press. Push. Dip. "I can feel long-dormant muscles awakening!" she exclaims more than once, squeezing and massaging her own arms and shoulders with relish. I keep glancing over at Josh. I can't wait to hear him tell this story later.//Jess, a fashion executive and intuitive energy worker, has a tendency to float around the cosmos, connecting people with their paths and communing on different planes, swirly and silly, abundant and sensual. More recently, she's expressed interest in grounding and strengthening and embodying. She wants to lift weights, and I want to help guide the way. She's a natural; she understands this is goddess work, too.//I saw her again tonight, as part of our monthly moon group, and she told me again how pleasantly sore and aware of her muscles she was afterward: "They each have their own little personalities, they wake up from their naps, they twitch when they don't like something," she observed. "Also, I tried to slouch afterward but my body said, 'Huh uh!' After one session, it's changed my posture and my confidence!" She pulled this card tonight, and says it suits where she is right now. The Empress knows the wisdom of her body, after all, and the expansive universe it contains.//#30daysofstories #april11 #day11 #tellmeastory #fastphysique #thekbversion #tarot #fullmoonshit
