Feminine Insight

You may have heard of the term feminine intuition, but the feminine woman of excellence has feminine insight as well dear reader.




Insight is defined as the understanding of a specific cause and effect, in context or the apprehending of the true nature of a thing, especially through intuitive understanding.

Feminine insight is the gift or ability that a feminine woman of excellence has in identify a situation for what it is (or Seeing Things As They Are) and responding appropriately.  The feminine woman is also insightful, meaning that she is perceptive.  She reflects often and understands the interconnectedness of all of life.


Tone down the makeup, remove the earrings, and this would be perfect:


The advantage of having insight is that the feminine woman of excellence spots patterns more quickly and instantly read any situation, be it an interpersonal conflict, a relationship issue, or even a workplace problem she’s been tasked to solve.

“People in a better mood are more likely to solve problems by insight.”

“Research has shown sleep to help produce insight.”


She takes care of herself and her body first and foremost, with right diet, nutrition, exercise, and sleep.

This can sometimes be easier said than done, however.  Proper self-care truly requires management of all aspects of one’s life and will be covered separately. (:


Living from the Inside, Out

Many women, dear reader, will react to a problem in their life by attempting to directly change the external factors that are involved.


Long ago in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia women understood the importance of our feminine soul.:


For example, if a child, friend, lover, or coworker isn’t behaving the way she desires them to, she reacts by either ordering the person involved to change or by complaining and arguing about the undesired behavior.

While simply suppressing one’s feelings and saying or doing nothing doesn’t work, neither does this.

And the reason it doesn’t work is because such a reaction comes out of not understanding that your world is simply a reflection of who you are, and that the only thing you can control  directly is yourself, never the world outside of you.

It’s as though you are looking at the events of life through a mirror, and when you don’t like what you see, you attempt to change what is in the reflection, rather than the source, which will in turn change the reflection.


Blush and Bubblegum:


This is all a bit abstract, but try it for yourself – the next time there is something in your world you aren’t happy with, stop and figure out what is inside of you that is causing that to show up, and once you identify it, you’ll have the power to change both it and the reflection in your world.

There is a common parable that captures this phenomenon well:

A man who was traveling came upon a farmer working in his field and asked him what the people in the next village were like. The farmer asked “What were the people like in the last village you visited?” The man responded “They were kind, friendly, generous, great people.” “You’ll find the people in the next village are the same,” said the farmer.
Another man who was traveling to the same village came up to the same farmer somewhat later and asked him what the people in the next village were like. Again the farmer asked “What were the people like in the last village you visited?” The second man responded, “They were rude, unfriendly, dishonest people.” “You’ll find the people in the next village are the same,” said the farmer.

Best of luck, dear reader! (:


Welcome to the blog of beautiful dreams about everything classy, elegant, chic, feminine, luxurious,...:


Being Open to Life’s Possibilities

The feminine woman of excellence, dear reader, is a joy to be around – she is full of life and she attracts both men and women alike to her.


Iconic Indian Beauty and one of the most famous Miss World's and Bollywood actress Aiswarya Rai is still the most beautiful woman in the World. Always a hot favourite on the red carpets including Cannes in France. Even after leaving the limelight to marry into a very wealthy Bollywood family and to start a family she remains one of the most sought after actresses and beauties of all times and will always be remembered for her perfect beauty and devastatingly beautiful eyes.:


She is so attractive, because she is open to life’s possibilities.  Many people, dear reader, become closed to what life has to offer as they grow older.  They experience defeat, perhaps betrayal and misfortune, and they are impaired by it.

The woman who remains open to life’s possibilities is not somehow a “teflon” woman who has miraculously dodged and deflected these things, dear reader.  She has experienced them as well, and been hurt by them.  But she accepts that such is a part of life, and she doesn’t take them personally.  She doesn’t beat herself up endlessly for experiencing a misfortune.  Rather, she has learned to cope by seeking the support of those close to her and by using what she’s experienced to become a more intricate, complicated, and interesting woman.

A comforting thought, in that situation, dear reader, is that a woman who is truly an alluring and intriguing queen cannot become that way by only experiencing the positive elements and lightness of life.  She has gotten in touch with her darker emotions as well, and explored all sides of herself.


Camel and Fur, Divine:


Once she has accepted whatever has happened to her (or that she herself has brought about) in life, she is free to remain open to what the world has to offer her, just as she did as a child.

She wakes energized and excited to start each new day, and expects good things to happen to her (on the whole, not all the time, of course).

And it is, ironically, this attitude which often creates that very same result in reality.

“Our lives are filled with endless possibilities.  We just have to open our minds to see them.  This means making smart choices.  For example, we can choose to act or to react or to sit by and watch life pass us by.  And in everything we do, every day, we have a choice to make.  Are we going to be great? Or are we going to be mediocre?  Why not choose to be great?  Why not wake up every morning and ask yourself what you are going to do today that is different and better from what you did yesterday?  Why not open your eyes to the endless possibilities that exist when you make a commitment to live the life you dream of living?”

Feminine “wiles”

Before an explanation of exactly what feminine wiles are, and how to develop and use them, dear reader, you must understand that they are only a tool and must be treated with discretion and caution.

Like any other tool, they may be misused – this is your warning to use your powers appropriately and wisely, dear reader (;


Elegant French style Fashion | The gift of Beauty | Chic lady in black with a bicycle | #Thejewelryhut:


A woman with carefully cultivated feminine wiles is a woman who knows how to use her gender and her femininity to her advantage, both to get what she wants, and to fight for what is right and good.  There are some women who abuse their powers, but those who do you will find, dear reader, develop a distasteful reputation that prevents them from ever coming close in grace and charm to the women who use their charms tactfully.

wile, dear reader, has a generally negative connotation, fitting with its definition as “a stratagem or trick intended to deceive or ensnare.”

However, the word also has a secondary definition and meaning: “to influence or lead” or “a disarming or seductive manner, device, or procedure.”

You may think of the feminine wiles as anything you do or say, dear reader, to disarm whoever it is you are trying to influence, whether that be your husband/boyfriend, a child, or anyone else.  And it is arguably much more distasteful to try to force your will on another person, than to gently coax and influence them, dear reader.


Na rua, no mundo, em qualquer lugar:


You have surely seen a young mother with several small children in tow, attempting and failing to get them to behave by yelling at them and acting in a threatening manner.  Isn’t the mother who devises a game to distract her children or promises a treat later if they are good the much better and more civilized caretaker?

Other ways a woman might use her feminine wiles are when she gently coaxes her husband, asking if he is stressed and needs a massage rather than approaching him angrily or forcefully in attempt to get him to empathize with her and see from her point of view.

It is honestly shocking how many women continue to believe that this will work when it goes so much against human nature that it fails virtually every time.


Robe magasin destockage:


You will find, dear reader, that you feminine wiles will be much more effective at getting you what it you that you desire.  Pushing others, or directly asking for what you want sometimes works, but more often than not it fails miserably and tends to irritate and alienate all involved.

Never win by force, dear reader, what can be taken without a fight:

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” – Sun Tzu

This is much like the common saying, “pick your battles”, dear reader.  By using your feminine wiles for common and every-day issues, you save your energy for the “battles” that are truly significant and matter.

Elle España, June 2012

Coconut can be purchased in several forms – milk, water, oil, extracts, or even as the raw fruit itself.   The water is packed with nutrients and minerals, and lacks the dense lipids (fats) present in the oil that comes from the white flesh of the fruit.  It is also fully pure and sterile – army doctors even used it in place of glucose during IV treatment on the Pacific front in the Second World War.

For women, the coconut is a symbol of fertility and is especially beneficial as an all-natural health and beauty aid.
