Lily l’Amour – tell me I’m beautiful
This is part of the Pants of Empowerment project, where women share the voice of their feminine nature and in return, receive a fantastic pair of pants to empower them. All names have been changed.
My womb is strong and my left ovary is where it should be, and the right ovary feels a bit crooked, low down and wonky, not quite right. That took my attention. Why would that be? I tried to put the ovary up, in my imagination, but it wasn’t having it. It felt a bit crippled.”
What would your ovary like to say?
“It’s around being in the world and making things happen, and she wants more support. There’s so much to do and so much is possible, that this paralyzes the action. And it’s in a nice way, there’s too much good stuff to choose from. I want it ALL and that’s too much of a burden.
There’s an urge for greatness, to do things out in the world and that’s a pressure, right? I can be an enjoyable process but it’s such a pressure, it almost collapses under the weight of that.”
What would your ovary like to wear?
“Something with sparkles, flowy with lots of folds, really delicate but grand, so it would have a real presence. Very feminine, maybe red, strong and feminine and powerful and sexy and floaty. Sexy high Priestessy.”
How will she feel in her pants?
“She will feel held and validated, maybe they’re magic pants and they’ll give her an access to what might be!”
What does your ovary need to heal or to feel celebrated?
“On a practical level, zooming out, my vulva, she needs someone to tell her she’s beautiful and mean it. I have told her this and that was healing, but I and she would like to hear that from my husband I think. That’s something I’ve never heard and I’d like to hear.”
How’s your ovary feeling now?
“It’s really nice to be listened to, to be in dialogue, she’s not broken, she’s just bowing under the weight of things, it doesn’t need to be that way. It’s like an exhaustion when you melt onto the sofa… it’s not that she’s deformed, it’s a temporary thing and she’ll perk up. I just need to listen and to use creative outlets to help me in conversation. There doesn’t have to be an end it can be a process of connecting. The output doesn’t matter, it’s a conversation.”
I love my power pants! I feel sassy and sexy and fit for a festival. Celebrated and gorgeous. Pretty and powerful.
