Feeling irritated or overwhelmed? Many of us can feel “bitchy” at times. Today, let’s have an honest conversation about why bitchiness matters, and what you can do to feel more grounded when it arises.
First of all, our inner bitch is here for a reason, and should be honored. She shows us when something’s off, and acts as a messenger, reminding us of what we need to give ourselves if we want to experience more ease, pleasure, & joy in our lives. Underneath the snarl, she reminds us to get back in touch with our own sensual, wild, creative nature.
Here at Amant we are all about being Less Bitchy & More Witchy!
We refer to our inner “witch” as the part of us who’s connected to nature, our intuition, other women, and never doubts whether our Love is received. This is the part of each of us that feels good establishing healthy boundaries in the moment, practices emotional impeccability, and loves feeling pleasure in our body. She enjoys engaging in natural alchemy, whether that’s through creating art, combining flavors in the kitchen, or making love.
Next time you’re feeling resentful, irritable, or otherwise bitchy, take a moment to return to yourself. Rather than placing your power outside of yourself, practice pulling the reins back into your own hands & give yourself some healing attention!

Stand outside with your bare feet on the earth. As you exhale, visualize yourself releasing resentment, blame, exhaustion, and anything else that’s making you feel contracted or unavailable to life.
As you inhale, feel the earth. Focus on your womb, and imagine yourself inhaling sunlight (or moonlight) & the freshness of the air into this beautiful part of your body.
Next, take a few minutes to visualize an ancient time before the onslaught of technology and patriarchy. Imagine a world where you’d often walk barefoot on the earth, living among bonded groups of women who pick herbs, bleed, and share stories & song together.
Try to imagine what it would feel like to live in total harmony with the cycles of nature: with the sun, the moon, and the seasons.
After you’ve taken a moment to sink into this feeling (of your own inner “witchiness”), ask yourself, “how can I bring more of this into my daily life?”
Your answer will be totally unique. It might be a special cup of tea that you brew every morning, practicing greater emotional impeccability, standing barefoot on the earth once a day, or spending more time with other women who are also committed to embodiment and self-expression.
Remember to practice emotional impeccability and not stifle your emotions. Bitchiness often comes from not expressing & suppressing needs & boundaries. You have every right to speak your needs right here and now, first to yourself, and then to others.
Now, go ahead and enjoy practicing your own unique, beautiful form of witchy creative self-expression! We can’t wait to hear all about.
