Tune in for a frank discussion about feminine power and how to embody it.
This week, on The Conscious Consultant Hour, Sam welcomes Social Media & Marketing Strategist, Certified Hypnotherapist, Master Leadership Coach, Speaker, and Bestselling Author, Laura Rubinstein.
Laura fuels entrepreneurs' visions through profit-generating strategies, her influencer marketing platform, blog, and boutique marketing agency at TransformToday.com. As a Feminine Power Mentor for women visionaries and thought leaders, she facilitates retreats and the Ignite Your Feminine Soul program.
She is the creator of the Feminine Power Cards (endorsed by John Gray, Ph.D. author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus) which offer practical tools that offer guidance, inspiration, and coaching to make profound shifts in their relationships and professional life.
Sam reads a section from his book Everyday Awakening titled True Connection Is about Presence. You can find a copy at EverydayAwakeningbook.com. The section states that a true connection is less about common interests and more about being comfortable in another person’s presence. When you can be with another person, sam says, that’s a true connection. Sam asks his listeners how connected they are you with themselves? How connected are you with others? He explains that we are so consumed with our lives and worries that we are not living in the present. Sam shares the importance of inner work and the benefits that can come from it. Sam recommends his listeners find a spiritual practice that helps them stay more present. He introduces his guest Laura Rubinstein, a social media and marketing strategist. Laura is a feminine power mentor for women visionaries, where she conducts retreats and the Ignite Your Feminine Soul Program. Before the break, Laura shares how she went from a successful social media strategist to a feminine power mentor.
Since she’s become a feminine mentor, Sam asks Laura what has changed about her life. Laura shares how through workshops and support, she was able to lean in on her feminine energy and find comfort in herself. She reflects on her journey and mentions how someone told her that her power was in her softness. Sam asks her what difference she has seen in professional women over the years. Laura says she’s noticed women embrace their nurturing and intuitive side, but there is still apprehension to commit fully. She says to let the feminine energy guide your thoughts and masculine energy guide your actions. In other words, lead with confidence and act with empathy.
Laura shares the beauty of embracing your feminine energy and the benefits of balancing your masculine energy. She talks about the power of feminine energy and how it can be the savior of our world issues. Sam asks Laura what the challenges women find in coming together. Laura blames it on the hyper-masculine values in our society. Sam and Laura discuss our value system and how it stems from money and power. They share how we can flourish if we change it to where our values stem from presence and connection. Laura states that the most powerful energy we hold is through feminine energy.
Laura picks a card from her Feminine Power deck, which reads let the process be the process. The deck is filled with principles and practices to help embrace your feminine side. Sam and Laura discuss the possibilities that erupt when you let the process be as it is. It’s about giving up control and riding the wave. Laura gives some advice for women leaders who want to accept their feminine presence. You can purchase a deck of feminine power cards at FemininePowerCards.com.

00:02:10.740 --> 00:02:16.230 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Can we truly be present for each other that's a big one.
00:02:17.580 --> 00:02:40.080 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Can we just be present with another person without judgment or expectation when when can when we can do that, we have true connection when we can just sit in someone's presence and be comfortable without having to do or say anything that's real connection.
00:02:41.160 --> 00:02:46.770 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: When we can just simply be with another human being, that connection.
00:02:48.360 --> 00:02:50.010 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How do we get to that point.
00:02:51.120 --> 00:02:54.960 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: By just simply being with ourselves.
00:02:56.370 --> 00:03:04.950 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: being present with ourselves without judgment or expectation, then we can include someone else.
00:03:06.930 --> 00:03:19.680 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Then we can truly be present and connected with someone else, then we have the capacity to maintain encouraged and grow that connection.
00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:27.840 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How connected, are you with yourself how connected, are you with others.
00:03:29.040 --> 00:03:42.930 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: This is really important, and my loyal listeners know that i've talked a lot over the years about presence on my show, and the reason why to me presence is such an important topic.
00:03:44.370 --> 00:03:56.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And this is something that i've learned over the last eight years of my life, doing the somatic work that I do and really doing a lot of deep inner work myself.
00:03:58.200 --> 00:04:06.420 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: is first of all, when I started to experience real presence, I was amazed at how not present I was.
00:04:07.410 --> 00:04:16.260 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Most of us are running around and we don't even realize how much we're not here we're not here in this moment.
00:04:16.890 --> 00:04:27.180 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: we're busy worrying about what happened yesterday or what's going to happen tomorrow, what are you going to do later today, you know i've got to call this person back and there's and we're constantly taking ourselves out of presence.
00:04:29.370 --> 00:04:35.700 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And it was really a big Aha moment for me, a big revelation when I realized, you know.
00:04:37.020 --> 00:04:39.930 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I often don't feel safe enough to be present.
00:04:41.910 --> 00:04:52.560 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And then I realized, because I wanted to be present, because I saw the beauty and the opportunity of being present with people and having that real connection and really.
00:04:53.310 --> 00:05:00.360 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know bonding with people I wanted more of that, and so, then I had to learn what what does it take to get to that place.
00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:06.990 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And in doing my own inner work it really was about being present with myself.
00:05:08.550 --> 00:05:16.140 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We all have these traumas and these things that have happened to us in our lives and we make all kinds of stories about them.
00:05:17.160 --> 00:05:23.820 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And they affect us in all kinds of different ways, and most of the time we're not even aware of how they're affecting us.
00:05:25.890 --> 00:05:42.300 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So when we sit with ourselves when we do our own deep inner work and it doesn't matter, what kind of deep inner work doesn't matter whether it's therapy, whether it's meditation practices from chronic work plan medicine work whatever kind of.
00:05:43.500 --> 00:05:47.070 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: process you use for your deep in and work and really dig in.
00:05:48.870 --> 00:05:59.520 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And we start unraveling and unwinding these knots that we've tied herself into over the years, as we unravel them as we unwind the.
00:06:00.990 --> 00:06:05.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Payments just like we breathe a sigh of relief it's like ah.
00:06:06.750 --> 00:06:12.180 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And it's just getting to that point where it's okay to be who we are.
00:06:13.410 --> 00:06:18.840 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I mean for me that was just such a big revelation that it's okay to be me.
00:06:21.510 --> 00:06:25.050 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And it really shocked me.
00:06:26.490 --> 00:06:37.230 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How when I learned to just be present with who I am be present with how I was what I was feeling be present to.
00:06:38.340 --> 00:06:45.030 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: To just what was going on around me that I was able to be so much more present with the person with me.
00:06:46.560 --> 00:06:57.120 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I was able to feel them so much more and look by this is by no means, am I saying that, like, I have the ultimate presence, no, I mean I know people who are so much more present than I am.
00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:07.590 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I just know that i'm a lot more present than I used to be and that's the key and that's the direction of moving and and that's what i'm really.

00:07:14.460 --> 00:07:22.230 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: To just find a practice that helps you to be more present with yourself with what's going on inside.

00:07:30.180 --> 00:07:31.200 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and your spirit.
00:07:32.640 --> 00:07:43.440 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: To really learn to notice the subtleties to notice, where do you take yourself out of presence What are those things that that pull you out.
00:07:45.270 --> 00:08:01.200 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and see if you can make those Okay, maybe follow the breadcrumbs and so like Why am I not being present in this moment, what about what's going on right here, right now is uncomfortable for me, makes me want to go somewhere else.
00:08:02.070 --> 00:08:17.730 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: That can be a really exquisite exquisite gold for doing the deeper you know work so that's the section for my book it's called true connection is about presence out halfway through the book.

00:10:11.820 --> 00:10:15.120 Laura Rubinstein: Well, I have a secret for you not such a big secret now but.
00:10:16.140 --> 00:10:20.760 Laura Rubinstein: The feminine power work was before my digital marketing agency work.
00:10:21.330 --> 00:10:22.680 Laura Rubinstein: Though you know.
00:10:22.770 --> 00:10:33.840 Laura Rubinstein: I was ignorant about the feminine until I was about 31 years old, but when I found it I started exploring it I embraced it, I wanted to embody it.
00:10:34.770 --> 00:10:49.380 Laura Rubinstein: My entire life changed and it became a passion project of mine and it's always been in the background, ever since and i've been on various interviews, since I came out with the deck in 2007 but I.
00:10:49.440 --> 00:10:50.850 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: thousand seven you came out with.
00:10:50.910 --> 00:10:53.400 Laura Rubinstein: I came out with a deck in 2007 but.
00:10:53.400 --> 00:11:01.830 Laura Rubinstein: Now i'm circling back to it because, so you know, I was studying the feminine back in 1999.
00:11:03.210 --> 00:11:09.330 Laura Rubinstein: And it wasn't there wasn't many people doing that many women talking about it and.
00:11:09.660 --> 00:11:13.170 Laura Rubinstein: When I heard I, of all places, I heard a woman get on stage at a.
00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:16.020 Laura Rubinstein: Networking event she had her 32nd talk and she said.
00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:23.100 Laura Rubinstein: feminine powers, the most powerful form of energy, there is, I was hooked I got curious I was.
00:11:23.100 --> 00:11:23.280 Like.
00:11:24.690 --> 00:11:35.310 Laura Rubinstein: I don't know what you just said, but I think it's key for me right now in my life I was at a turning point, where I was kicked out of a job and and relationship on the same day.
00:11:35.850 --> 00:11:36.720 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Oh wow.
00:11:36.810 --> 00:11:38.010 Laura Rubinstein: Both were long term.
00:11:39.420 --> 00:11:44.460 Laura Rubinstein: And it was kind of like the universe saying something's gotta change here.
00:11:45.510 --> 00:11:47.490 Laura Rubinstein: And I also noticed a lot of other people.
00:11:48.240 --> 00:12:05.460 Laura Rubinstein: i'm getting shift that the world was shifting into when I met this woman, it was just like it was awesome because up until I was miserable before I started that journey and I didn't know why I mean, I had a great great relation, I had a great guy.
00:12:07.080 --> 00:12:14.040 Laura Rubinstein: And I did self help programs and did therapy, but nothing gave me answers.
00:12:14.520 --> 00:12:17.550 Laura Rubinstein: No, and I started on this path and.
00:12:19.080 --> 00:12:36.990 Laura Rubinstein: It was a lot of what you were talking about today with your chapter connecting to myself being learning to be present acceptance there's so much that I didn't know, I was blind to that was sabotaging my happiness.
00:12:37.650 --> 00:12:39.480 Laura Rubinstein: Because of the paradigm I grew up in.
00:12:39.660 --> 00:12:54.360 Laura Rubinstein: which was you can be anything go out there conquer the world right and I love that i'm not discounting that at all, but I wasn't bringing in anything else about my joy my heart my passion, I was just my inner critic was running the show.
00:12:55.980 --> 00:12:56.880 Laura Rubinstein: That has to change.
00:12:57.270 --> 00:13:07.530 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So, would you say that you were more in your masculine energy more new masculine side, then your feminine side when all this started like coming to you and.
00:13:07.770 --> 00:13:08.640 Laura Rubinstein: yeah cuz I.
00:13:09.000 --> 00:13:16.770 Laura Rubinstein: When when my mentor asked me what this feminine mean to you, it meant Laura Ashley prints and I don't like them.
00:13:18.450 --> 00:13:20.310 Laura Rubinstein: So I must not be feminine.
00:13:20.790 --> 00:13:23.940 Laura Rubinstein: And then I started understanding this energy within me.
00:13:24.270 --> 00:13:34.260 Laura Rubinstein: That always been there multitasking creative thinking out of the box being able to see things that others don't feeling things and i'm like oh.
00:13:35.340 --> 00:13:37.320 Laura Rubinstein: On it baby, you know it's like.
00:13:37.560 --> 00:13:47.670 Laura Rubinstein: What is that, why have whoa there's this like this thing that i've just been kind of like, no, no, no, you know it's bad to multitask it's bad to this it's bad you know.
00:13:48.120 --> 00:13:56.520 Laura Rubinstein: I you can't trust your your you know what is that that you know subtle feeling and then I owned it and I, you know things started.
00:13:56.820 --> 00:14:03.060 Laura Rubinstein: manifesting with ease I had so much more joy, was able to connect I was able to it wasn't even safe to like.
00:14:03.450 --> 00:14:14.880 Laura Rubinstein: Express to little children like play with them and baby voice, you know that wasn't OK, for me at the time, and it was there, it was just like you don't do that when you're masculine right.
00:14:14.940 --> 00:14:17.070 Laura Rubinstein: Like I don't have I didn't have that word right.
00:14:17.850 --> 00:14:28.110 Laura Rubinstein: right but that's what it was, and then I was like let me play with every part of myself and and so when I started on this journey I started writing down back.
00:14:28.590 --> 00:14:39.120 Laura Rubinstein: The principles that I was learning to embrace and I wrote them on index cards, and when I be in a stuck place or I find myself a little down or sad or melancholy.
00:14:39.570 --> 00:14:51.360 Laura Rubinstein: I would go through this or struggling with how do I resolve this and get back to Joy I go through my little index cards and go like ah oh I just need to I need to read i'm being hard on myself oh i'm.
00:14:51.960 --> 00:14:53.250 Laura Rubinstein: I need to you know, like.
00:14:53.370 --> 00:14:59.190 Laura Rubinstein: It would just bring me back to stay with something i've been so used to pushing away.
00:14:59.580 --> 00:15:01.470 Laura Rubinstein: And that's where the feminine power cards came.
00:15:01.470 --> 00:15:03.180 Laura Rubinstein: Out there were really for me.
00:15:03.540 --> 00:15:04.230 Laura Rubinstein: You know, to.

00:15:06.930 --> 00:15:23.670 Laura Rubinstein: yeah and but then I remembered you know, I was in corporate at that you know early on in my career and I was like wow if I just had a deck of cards and my desk that I could just flip through and bring me back to a centered place you know back in i'm going to use the word loosely balance.
00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:25.980 Laura Rubinstein: Back to me.

00:15:36.960 --> 00:15:51.090 Laura Rubinstein: A couple years into my marriage, so it was like seven years on my journey, you know studying the feminine embracing the feminine and then working with others and and actually teach them teaching others and transforming my own life.
00:15:51.300 --> 00:16:07.110 Laura Rubinstein: My entire once I found it started exploring it I just you know you said, like watch your life, you know be present, with your I can watch things now unraveling and notice the perfection and the beauty of it all, you know, but it totally changed.

00:19:24.330 --> 00:19:37.440 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Welcome back to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity so Laura you've been working with this idea of sort of feminine energy feminine the divine feminine or feminine power.
00:19:39.420 --> 00:19:48.090 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What has sort of shifted to you like, if you look to where you are today versus where you were before you created the deck.
00:19:48.420 --> 00:19:57.420 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What what's the difference, what would people you know what if you know you had an old friend who knew you back then that you haven't seen in a while and they meet you today, what would they say is different about.
00:20:00.420 --> 00:20:04.560 Laura Rubinstein: Well, I have i'll tell you what somebody told me was different.
00:20:06.540 --> 00:20:12.300 Laura Rubinstein: And she said when I first met you and you came into this class that I was in she said you were like the ice Queen.
00:20:14.280 --> 00:20:21.420 Laura Rubinstein: And I was like mortified wow and that was actually the class that I was learning about feminine energy.
00:20:23.730 --> 00:20:31.080 Laura Rubinstein: And I was like whoa I I came i've come a long way, you know and.
00:20:32.280 --> 00:20:45.990 Laura Rubinstein: You know I grew up on the east coast rough around the edges, though I did go to the south, for schools, so I got a little more socialization, but when I did all my feminine work I could soften I could relax and you were talking about it in your chapter that you read.
00:20:46.800 --> 00:20:50.070 Laura Rubinstein: That when you become present and accept who you are.
00:20:51.120 --> 00:20:53.820 Laura Rubinstein: The the whips and chains on myself went away.
00:20:54.270 --> 00:20:57.180 Laura Rubinstein: And they allowed me to take them away on everybody.
00:20:57.210 --> 00:21:02.640 Laura Rubinstein: else to like if i'm going to be hard on myself i'm likely hard on other people right.
00:21:02.790 --> 00:21:03.210 Right.
00:21:04.260 --> 00:21:24.090 Laura Rubinstein: Especially in more intimate and more intimate relationships, so that was probably the biggest thing I softened and then I remember being in another self help program and and somebody said to me Laura your power is in your softness and then I knew I had arrived, because if she saw that.
00:21:25.590 --> 00:21:29.850 Laura Rubinstein: And she also saw that I was hiding behind my power suits you know.
00:21:30.240 --> 00:21:46.350 Laura Rubinstein: she's like let's put a scarf around you let's lighten up your hair let's you know take off the padded shoulder pads at the time, you know let's let's just you know you can shift worlds with your softness.
00:21:48.330 --> 00:21:59.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: i'm curious because, as you mentioned, like back then, when you first started working on this, it wasn't the idea of like the feminine coming into the conversation wasn't really.
00:21:59.310 --> 00:22:10.470 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: very widely use, I mean yeah and john Gray come out with this book and there were a couple of authors are a couple of books about it, but it wasn't really in the conversation in general conversation as much as it is today.
00:22:10.980 --> 00:22:20.940 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What have you seen in working with fellow women is practice specifically like professional business women, what have you seen is the difference over the years.
00:22:22.200 --> 00:22:37.950 Laura Rubinstein: A willingness to embrace their nurturing and intuitive side, bringing that fully owning it, however it's not we're not fully there because a lot of the women today are saying to me.
00:22:38.940 --> 00:22:47.490 Laura Rubinstein: I don't I want to be taken seriously, I don't want to be seen as weak, so how that we're still wondering how can we I know.
00:22:48.090 --> 00:22:55.830 Laura Rubinstein: I love my feminine side I love that you know that we're in the conversation now, before we were like infants now we're somewhere between toddlers and.
00:22:56.220 --> 00:23:00.420 Laura Rubinstein: elementary school, you know preschool type of thing so it's like.
00:23:01.050 --> 00:23:19.260 Laura Rubinstein: we've gotten a facility with it, we are starting to feel it out and express it in the world, but we hold back because we're not sure the world is ready for it, there were we can handle what happens or we're going to be as effective we're still at the effect of.
00:23:20.370 --> 00:23:26.760 Laura Rubinstein: The value in the culture of this highly masculine forward.
00:23:27.330 --> 00:23:28.200 Laura Rubinstein: Right paradigm.
00:23:28.590 --> 00:23:39.570 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right right and and there were even women who are still perpetuating it and I think of haven't read the book myself, I think it was sheryl Sandberg lean in.
00:23:40.380 --> 00:23:47.640 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Where i've heard some women sort of criticize it a little bit where she where a lot of the things that she talks about in the book is actually.
00:23:47.940 --> 00:23:58.440 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: encouraging women to be more masculine in a way when you're in the corporate environment which in some ways, I understand is necessary because of the environment, but the point is to try and change that right.
00:23:59.460 --> 00:24:00.810 Laura Rubinstein: The point is.
00:24:02.220 --> 00:24:07.860 Laura Rubinstein: And if we if we all can body, this will see a massive shift in our world for the better, which is.
00:24:09.210 --> 00:24:13.890 Laura Rubinstein: Allow your feminine to be a wise guide.
00:24:14.640 --> 00:24:24.660 Laura Rubinstein: hmm and then allow the masculine to take heed of what the feminine wisdom is and put it into action.
00:24:26.430 --> 00:24:33.720 Laura Rubinstein: When we come into concert concert with our energies and we use them in a way.
00:24:35.430 --> 00:24:46.200 Laura Rubinstein: That really doesn't stress us out but it recreates flow, it creates magnetism it creates love it creates harmony creates create creativity, it is creative.
00:24:48.420 --> 00:24:50.010 Laura Rubinstein: We will see.
00:24:51.330 --> 00:25:01.260 Laura Rubinstein: Such harmony come, we will see the ship, we will, that is where my vision is, I see that coming so it's not that we just have to bring in the feminine, we have to.
00:25:01.650 --> 00:25:17.970 Laura Rubinstein: You know, understand how they best play and absolutely there's a place for the masculine, this is not about replacing it, this is about leveraging you know leveraging both of us want to talk in masculine terms it's like this is good for everyone.
00:25:18.210 --> 00:25:25.530 Laura Rubinstein: I like I like to say it, why wouldn't every male person on this planet who's in their masculine be a feminist.
00:25:26.280 --> 00:25:26.640 Right.
00:25:28.350 --> 00:25:38.130 Laura Rubinstein: Because when you're in harmony with that feminine energy and your life your life is super it is heaven on earth so.
00:25:39.270 --> 00:25:40.680 Laura Rubinstein: Why wouldn't you want that.
00:25:41.250 --> 00:25:50.160 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And it's interesting I didn't because it was before you even said this William on the Facebook live said how will the feminine helping man improve.
00:25:50.670 --> 00:26:02.610 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right and and it's so the same dynamic it's like knowing when is appropriate to to embody what side of ourselves because we all have masculine and feminine within us don't really.
00:26:03.540 --> 00:26:11.160 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right and and so, and you know people talk about balance and I tend to think of it more as harmony.
00:26:11.730 --> 00:26:20.520 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: of getting the two sides to work together, because sometimes whether you're a man or a woman, you might be in a certain situation where you do need to be more in the masculine energy.
00:26:20.940 --> 00:26:29.100 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know something that does need to get done and you need to be the one to do it, but there are times when it's more important to be in the feminine side.
00:26:29.610 --> 00:26:43.080 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: The little more passive maybe relaxing or connecting with people what have you and it's not about one is better than the other, but it's just there are different situations where one type of energy might be more appropriate.
00:26:43.230 --> 00:26:44.520 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Appropriate than the other.
00:26:45.270 --> 00:26:59.400 Laura Rubinstein: And if you think of it as a continuum like feminine masculine masculine feminine whatever on either side and you're constantly you know a little like sliding piece on that continuum in your daily life.
00:26:59.910 --> 00:27:07.470 Laura Rubinstein: Right and, as you notice it like your said, be aware of where you're at go deep, is this the best.
00:27:08.010 --> 00:27:22.920 Laura Rubinstein: Harmony for you right now is this create is this location this place you're putting your energies the right spot for you right now for the harmony you want or the joy you want a piece you want, and if not, you need to soften.
00:27:23.340 --> 00:27:25.260 Laura Rubinstein: Do you need to energize.
00:27:25.320 --> 00:27:34.200 Laura Rubinstein: beef up the muscles get feeling stronger in your body stronger in your command of you know your team whatever.
00:27:35.220 --> 00:27:45.540 Laura Rubinstein: But do you have to listen and sit back because things are too intense you know, like you just constantly slide with this so that you can take away moving with the wave of life.
00:27:46.440 --> 00:28:03.210 Laura Rubinstein: So if there's nothing wrong with them ask them, but when we do something too much and we don't bring in anything else that's available and can make it juicy or a good life easier, you get stressed, we have a world that doesn't work it's over done.
00:28:03.870 --> 00:28:15.540 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right and and I also just want the audience to be aware, this isn't just talking about people who I identify as a man or a woman was born a man or a woman it doesn't matter whether your.
00:28:16.470 --> 00:28:37.950 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: binary non binary trans or LGBT Q plus whatever it it's these energies exist within all of us it doesn't matter what our appearance what our orientation what any of that is because this is talking about archetypal fundamental energies within ourselves.
00:28:38.730 --> 00:28:41.400 Laura Rubinstein: Yes, I agree completely awesome.
00:28:41.670 --> 00:28:47.910 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: OK, I see patty also checking in loyal listener patty from Illinois this time I don't know patty you're always.
00:28:48.330 --> 00:29:05.460 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Going all over the place girl power, she says my daughter toward her daughter, to be strong, before she left this space sorry to hear that she left, but I hope your granddaughter will learn better alright so we're going to take a quick break and then we come back Laura i'm curious about.
00:29:06.570 --> 00:29:09.990 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You you had said early on that this is something you had.

00:32:01.080 --> 00:32:17.550 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: He says, I, like the word harmony, you said what I was thinking, I guess, I wanted validation of my thoughts you're quite welcome welcome i'm so Laura what brought this back around I mean you said you'd created this deck back in 2007 I mean that was like 15 years ago.
00:32:18.570 --> 00:32:25.530 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What is kind of brought this for you lately front and Center and why are you focusing so much on this now.
00:32:25.740 --> 00:32:37.530 Laura Rubinstein: huh well it's always been with me right, I it's kind of been my little secret tool and I i've been doing things here and there, with it, but.
00:32:39.270 --> 00:32:50.610 Laura Rubinstein: I am feeling the pool within me to go deeper myself to come out of the preschool and go into elementary school now right and I don't want to do it alone, I find that.
00:32:51.840 --> 00:32:56.610 Laura Rubinstein: A lot of women are talking about the feminine now but we're doing it in silos you know.
00:32:57.870 --> 00:33:09.990 Laura Rubinstein: And i'd love to connect with the other women leaders, so now that other people are talking about it let's just get on a base, you know, have a baseline conversation and come together.
00:33:11.310 --> 00:33:16.830 Laura Rubinstein: And embody the feminine like never before, like let's go explore it.
00:33:17.430 --> 00:33:33.090 Laura Rubinstein: Because there are those questions out there, we have to stop getting stop silo and get out of our silos come together because that's what we really love to do we love to do use that power of connection be present, with each other, provide that safe space to let our hair down to.
00:33:34.110 --> 00:33:36.900 Laura Rubinstein: Practice explore expand.
00:33:37.980 --> 00:33:59.400 Laura Rubinstein: Just embrace nurture each other, like where is the feminine leader getting nurtured now a lot of us, you know, will take ourselves to the SPA will do our meditation practice, and yet we still feel something's missing in our nurturing and it's that connection right and when women tap into.
00:34:00.450 --> 00:34:07.950 Laura Rubinstein: Our full or feminine essence and i'm mostly working with women and that's just because i'm.
00:34:09.390 --> 00:34:11.550 Laura Rubinstein: The orientation, I am and.
00:34:12.930 --> 00:34:15.030 Laura Rubinstein: That the power we have.
00:34:16.380 --> 00:34:26.730 Laura Rubinstein: Is is, we need to heal there's you know it's more and more anxious world and we have to learn to become a peaceful presence in the face of that.
00:34:27.870 --> 00:34:29.940 Laura Rubinstein: And I believe it's only going to happen together.
00:34:30.930 --> 00:34:44.580 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And, have you seen sort of a shift over the last couple of years, so many things have changed in the world over the last couple of years, have you seen a shift in how women are responding to your message and just the last couple of years.
00:34:46.230 --> 00:34:57.360 Laura Rubinstein: I think it's more common place to talk about it, like before really had to justify really explain why we need this feminine and everybody's like yes, we need it.
00:34:57.930 --> 00:35:10.140 Laura Rubinstein: Yes, and in fact I was just at a women's meeting last week and one woman who has been in law enforcement, for most of her career said the world's got to change and women are the ones we're going to do it.
00:35:10.560 --> 00:35:11.970 Laura Rubinstein: And then I turned to her, and I said.
00:35:12.030 --> 00:35:12.990 Laura Rubinstein: You know, being a.
00:35:14.040 --> 00:35:16.470 Laura Rubinstein: sister leader how.
00:35:18.720 --> 00:35:28.770 Laura Rubinstein: right because I don't have the answers I know it's possible to, but I was letting my hair down and she goes I don't know, but we are the ones, and I go I know.
00:35:29.520 --> 00:35:30.210 Laura Rubinstein: So let's.
00:35:30.510 --> 00:35:37.920 Laura Rubinstein: So that's why I want to come together because something's going to emerge and it's not going to emerge from our masculine just thinking it through.
00:35:38.370 --> 00:35:42.150 Laura Rubinstein: Right, we got to be it through, we got to feel it through.
00:35:43.620 --> 00:35:48.840 Laura Rubinstein: And it's going to emerge in a way that we can't even can't conceive of right now.
00:35:50.760 --> 00:36:04.560 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What do you think is the challenge for women to come together behind these kinds of principles, what is it that, like kind of has kept it from happening so far, let me put it that way.
00:36:05.280 --> 00:36:17.370 Laura Rubinstein: I think it's are highly masking lies world and values, and we have to be you know where the breadwinners a lot of times we're, the ones who have to get stuff done and we were so.
00:36:17.940 --> 00:36:32.220 Laura Rubinstein: we're so masterful in our masculine that letting in something else is at times in certain sometimes we're really good at the masculine and our work, so those were really good at in our relationships.
00:36:32.670 --> 00:36:49.170 Laura Rubinstein: And then we're good at the feminine in our work or in our relationships we haven't done that sliding you know harmonizing in both so we're we're learning about it, we just haven't figured it out and we're still in a paradigm, that is.
00:36:51.000 --> 00:37:05.340 Laura Rubinstein: Affirming keeping that masculine front and Center instead of in harmony with with feminine energy and so we're just not it's like a blind spot right now yeah that's my that's my opinion and I am open to.
00:37:06.180 --> 00:37:19.110 Laura Rubinstein: hearing what else is going on, because I feel like i'm a little bit like this is the people I can see that answer through there's probably a whole bigger answer to it, I don't purport to know the answers of the workings of the universe.
00:37:20.910 --> 00:37:28.950 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know, one of the things is interesting, what you say, because of the principles that sort of society is organized around yeah and my teacher.
00:37:29.400 --> 00:37:41.460 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Armand once said that you know society is sort of organized around the principle of power and influence and money, but he says it doesn't have to be that way.
00:37:42.060 --> 00:37:52.380 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Actually, if you organize around the principle of presence and connection, we would have some a totally different value system and him coming from.
00:37:53.010 --> 00:38:00.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: You know, as a small child from a village in Peru, you know the there were different principles around so.
00:38:00.390 --> 00:38:05.190 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It doesn't have to be this way and I think because we're so inculcated into this.
00:38:05.490 --> 00:38:13.950 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: This way of thinking in this way of being from the time that we're born, we think like Well, this is the only way it can be because it's the way it's been for thousands of years.
00:38:14.730 --> 00:38:31.500 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: However, you know, there are lots of evidence of cultures hundreds, thousands of years ago that were much more matriarchal that actually we're much more in touch with that that archetypal feminine in the tribe.
00:38:33.000 --> 00:38:48.180 Laura Rubinstein: Agreed, I mean if I could have could have an experience of immersing myself in that Peruvian paradigm, and that you're talking about and that's what I want to do, I want to bring women together because we're we each have maybe little pieces of that.
00:38:48.360 --> 00:38:51.270 Laura Rubinstein: And examples of that in our life it's not that it's totally missing.
00:38:51.660 --> 00:39:01.170 Laura Rubinstein: But I may have it in one area and another one when they have it in another area, another person i'm open to men may have it another, but I want to come together and.
00:39:01.830 --> 00:39:10.560 Laura Rubinstein: And piece them together and like embody just like how did how I had to do in the beginning, I have to in order to embody it, I have to be given some awareness of it.
00:39:11.580 --> 00:39:19.680 Laura Rubinstein: And I can meditate till the cows come home and I may not get that awareness, because that may not be in my.
00:39:21.060 --> 00:39:21.750 Laura Rubinstein: come through.
00:39:21.840 --> 00:39:42.240 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right right and that's one of the reasons why I love the the demonic work that I do because i've seen women really transform doing this work where they learn to embody their feminine presence in such a way that it's so it's totally feminine but very, very powerful.
00:39:43.350 --> 00:39:46.200 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And there's really something beautiful to behold.
00:39:46.500 --> 00:39:48.270 Laura Rubinstein: And I think you just hit on something.
00:39:49.290 --> 00:39:55.920 Laura Rubinstein: The power of the feminine, this is what the woman, said to me 20 whatever years ago.
00:39:57.060 --> 00:40:18.810 Laura Rubinstein: To me, when she stood in front of the room, the most powerful energy we have is feminine power, and I wanted to understand why I was open to it it's not week has nothing to do with week it takes courage to be vulnerable it takes a men strength to go deep like you said to listen to intuition.
00:40:18.990 --> 00:40:20.850 Laura Rubinstein: And they did direct your masculine.
00:40:20.910 --> 00:40:36.360 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: To do that, if you look at some of the ancient archetypes I mean look at cali right Kali is a is the Hindu goddess she's the goddess of life and dad because when you think about it, I mean look.
00:40:37.470 --> 00:40:44.370 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I don't care what you say, women are still child bearers women are people who give birth to life.
00:40:45.600 --> 00:40:46.080 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right.
00:40:46.140 --> 00:40:47.100 Laura Rubinstein: And magical.
00:40:47.160 --> 00:41:01.320 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: that's a powerful that is more powerful than anything else in this world um i'm curious we've just a couple of minutes before we go to break, but you like to work, specifically with women leaders.
00:41:01.860 --> 00:41:15.930 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Do and i'm curious like what's The biggest challenge in getting women leaders to really not just understand what you're talking about, but really embody this idea of feminine power.
00:41:17.040 --> 00:41:25.650 Laura Rubinstein: likely, you know, like I haven't really sat with this for long but likely it's the fear within of letting go of the paradigm they're currently working in.
00:41:27.060 --> 00:41:28.140 Laura Rubinstein: And so.
00:41:30.150 --> 00:41:36.450 Laura Rubinstein: there's nothing wrong with it, but when they're ready to have more access to more of what they want.
00:41:37.470 --> 00:41:40.890 Laura Rubinstein: My invitation is to explore and embody the feminine.
00:41:42.150 --> 00:41:44.190 Laura Rubinstein: in whatever way, that means for you.
00:41:45.480 --> 00:41:52.710 Laura Rubinstein: You know everybody's definition of feminine is going to be different and to start where you're at you know.
00:41:53.520 --> 00:42:11.340 Laura Rubinstein: When the challenges internal and external it's what we know what we know and we don't know what we don't know right and we haven't thought it through, we haven't been been presence to this we don't have enough women role models, who are leading in their feminine.
00:42:11.820 --> 00:42:12.930 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right right.
00:42:13.110 --> 00:42:14.130 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And that's why I work with.
00:42:15.420 --> 00:42:18.720 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Most of the women who are.
00:42:19.890 --> 00:42:27.780 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: are out there who are famous who are in the media and stuff they tend to be very masculine women leaders aren't they.
00:42:28.650 --> 00:42:32.130 Laura Rubinstein: A lot of them are, and there are a few emerging.
00:42:33.570 --> 00:42:39.000 Laura Rubinstein: You know, and there are a few holes past that we can look to I mean I look at Mother Teresa.
00:42:39.300 --> 00:42:40.680 Laura Rubinstein: or princess Diana.
00:42:41.100 --> 00:42:46.200 Laura Rubinstein: In our to I mean they could they could pick up the phone to any world leader, they wanted to.
00:42:47.640 --> 00:42:51.240 Laura Rubinstein: raise money millions without having a diamond their bank account.
00:42:52.950 --> 00:42:53.910 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Absolutely.
00:42:54.150 --> 00:42:55.290 Laura Rubinstein: Yes, they were always taking.
00:42:55.290 --> 00:43:00.390 Laura Rubinstein: Care of you know it's just there's totally like when you think about that you're like.
00:43:01.920 --> 00:43:04.350 Laura Rubinstein: huh you're right there is another paradigm.
00:43:05.610 --> 00:43:15.510 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right exactly exactly and you mentioned Mother Teresa just PENA reminds me of that quote from the Dalai Lama or attributed to the Dalai Lama, who said that.
00:43:16.500 --> 00:43:27.420 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: The world will be saved by the Western woman yes and and you know I think it's something that we can all be much more present to.
00:43:27.870 --> 00:43:37.290 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Is the fact that here in the West, we live a very privileged life compared to majority of people on this planet.
00:43:38.100 --> 00:43:47.820 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And we have the ability to really shape and change things, regardless of what seems to be going on around the world and it's really up to us.
00:43:48.360 --> 00:44:00.870 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: To set the example and to to really make a stand for these ideas that that we know are so important and really need to get out there.
00:44:01.710 --> 00:44:09.840 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: All right, it's time for us to take our last break of the time flies, so much so quickly when we're having fun when we come back Maybe you can.

00:46:48.180 --> 00:46:56.010 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Welcome back to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity okay Laura did you pick a card for us for audience.
00:46:56.100 --> 00:46:57.150 Laura Rubinstein: I did.
00:46:58.020 --> 00:46:58.470 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Which one.
00:46:58.500 --> 00:47:00.690 Laura Rubinstein: deck here and okay.
00:47:02.400 --> 00:47:03.300 Laura Rubinstein: drumroll please.
00:47:06.240 --> 00:47:14.490 Laura Rubinstein: So this is the cards, first of all, are designed in two ways or they're designed with two sides that do different things.
00:47:15.210 --> 00:47:31.620 Laura Rubinstein: The principles on the pink side and on the multicolored side is the practice So these are feminine power principles and practices, so the principle today, I chose that shows us is allow the process to be the process.
00:47:32.370 --> 00:47:35.520 Laura Rubinstein: Sometimes a logic and strategy are ineffective.
00:47:38.190 --> 00:47:43.590 Laura Rubinstein: Sometimes they have to just allow right, this is the concept of allowing so.
00:47:44.370 --> 00:47:56.310 Laura Rubinstein: The practices in the cards that we have three different types one is something to do and that's what this is what the star indicated at the bottom sometimes it's an affirmation and sometimes it's a contemplation or journaling.
00:47:57.540 --> 00:48:09.420 Laura Rubinstein: question, so the practice is quiet your mind place your attention on your feelings and instead of making something happen allow for something to emerge.
00:48:10.170 --> 00:48:10.920 i'm.
00:48:13.560 --> 00:48:23.790 Laura Rubinstein: Using the power of your body wisdom and your inner wisdom is about allowing the process to be the process and I think that is a message for.
00:48:24.600 --> 00:48:35.580 Laura Rubinstein: me as an answer to a question, you said how are we going to get where we're going to go, what is this it's we've got to allow the process to the be the process we have to quiet and.
00:48:36.690 --> 00:48:45.630 Laura Rubinstein: allow for something to emerge there's this allowance were to trying to force, and you know square peg round hole whatever.
00:48:46.710 --> 00:48:49.710 Laura Rubinstein: We have to let go a little bit and.
00:48:50.850 --> 00:48:51.720 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Trust right.
00:48:51.750 --> 00:48:55.500 Laura Rubinstein: Trust the trust is big trust the universe trust yourself.
00:48:57.300 --> 00:49:00.180 Laura Rubinstein: and stay awake.
00:49:01.410 --> 00:49:02.550 Laura Rubinstein: Stay awake to.
00:49:02.610 --> 00:49:03.420 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Remember that.
00:49:03.600 --> 00:49:23.970 Laura Rubinstein: To yourself mostly so the part in here, this is place your attention on your feelings I think we're we are so used to numbing out our feelings right keeping ourselves busy going shopping trying to go to the next, whatever event because we're so tired of being cooped up or you know.
00:49:26.250 --> 00:49:27.750 Laura Rubinstein: Drinking whatever it is.
00:49:29.550 --> 00:49:35.040 Laura Rubinstein: Eating just to avoid feeling not saying don't do any of those things i'm just saying.
00:49:36.630 --> 00:49:39.060 Laura Rubinstein: notice what you're feeling.
00:49:39.570 --> 00:49:58.290 Laura Rubinstein: In every or any given moment, because our feelings our emotions, I know some people distinguish them but i'm not distinguishing it right now use the word that works for you, they are wisdom messages from our soul and when we push them aside, we are dissing our soul.
00:50:00.450 --> 00:50:03.930 Laura Rubinstein: And they're the answer to the gold.
00:50:04.380 --> 00:50:04.740 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: mm hmm.
00:50:04.800 --> 00:50:21.060 Laura Rubinstein: they're going to guide us they're going to allow something to emerge I can't tell you how many times when i've stopped judging myself when i've stopped pushing through when i've stopped avoiding or keeping myself busy boom my whole world changed.
00:50:22.170 --> 00:50:23.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Absolutely.
00:50:23.520 --> 00:50:32.040 Laura Rubinstein: solution arrive somebody else did it for me the world changed, you know it's like let it go people let it go and let it allow.
00:50:32.280 --> 00:50:33.060 Laura Rubinstein: That flow.
00:50:33.570 --> 00:50:41.250 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Absolutely, I cannot tell you how many times over the last 12 years that me and my wife have been running the wellness Center in the station.
00:50:41.760 --> 00:50:48.540 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: That when we would go away on vacation after maybe having not taken a vacation for a while, how, when we came back.
00:50:48.780 --> 00:51:06.540 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Like something happened that that we've been waiting for that we didn't even expect that, just like took us to the next level and it's so funny how, when we get out of our own way and just allow life to happen it completely supports us doesn't it.
00:51:06.780 --> 00:51:13.770 Laura Rubinstein: Yes, and and allow and we allow something greater to come in and do we don't have to be the master of the universe.
00:51:14.070 --> 00:51:15.600 Laura Rubinstein: Right and control everything in fact.
00:51:15.930 --> 00:51:19.800 Laura Rubinstein: You know a lot of times i'll talk myself off the ledge during to do that and say.
00:51:20.700 --> 00:51:39.570 Laura Rubinstein: Please just resolve this for my highest good allow this to be resolved for my highest good and then I can let it go now a lot of people say like oh my God that kind of thing, yes, so that's a good reminder for me today too, so I appreciate that opportunity to do that.
00:51:40.290 --> 00:51:46.950 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Great great Thank you Thank you so much um we just have a few minutes left of the show i'm just wondering.
00:51:48.780 --> 00:52:02.580 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: If you were to talk to two women leaders like right now what one piece of advice would you want to give them that we haven't already said on the show like what's one thing you want women leaders to know.
00:52:03.990 --> 00:52:12.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: That can support them into accepting that feminine presence their own feminine presence more.
00:52:18.840 --> 00:52:22.410 Laura Rubinstein: Men love, a woman in her feminine essence.
00:52:24.000 --> 00:52:29.730 Laura Rubinstein: Because we haven't talked about that you know, like if we're talking that or the masculine loves the feminine.
00:52:30.030 --> 00:52:46.920 Laura Rubinstein: mm hmm the healthy Honorable masculine adores and embraces and wants to see her light, not only that this masculine needs that light our world needs our light yeah yeah, we need to cultivate it.
00:52:48.510 --> 00:52:56.160 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Right right um okay so so the card deck is out and and where can people find it.
00:52:56.550 --> 00:52:58.740 Laura Rubinstein: At feminine power cards calm.

00:53:05.910 --> 00:53:14.370 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: um, and so what else, are you doing around this I mean, besides the card deck and stuff what else, are you doing to to help women in this way.
00:53:15.180 --> 00:53:26.610 Laura Rubinstein: i'm creating the space and place now metaphysical like what come together in a physical place but it's called the ignite your feminine soul retreat and program and.
00:53:27.300 --> 00:53:41.250 Laura Rubinstein: it's really for women leaders to come together to let their hair down to stop to come out of the silo not stop it come out of the silo and join our energies boost each other's you know.
