Meditations for Queer Femmes – Healing

Femme Love Heal World. You’ve heard me say it many a time, and each of you, my sweetest of plums, spread healing every day with your femme magic. It’s in how you notice small details. How you respond to unspoken hurts and needs. It’s in your smile and in the way you move. In how you make love. In how you receive love. Your art, your work, your genius, the air about you. Your laugh.

            Heal world and heal self.

            Today, lovebugs, sit for a moment within your busy life and ponder: is there room in the every day to receive femme healing? You give so much, so much of the time. What about you in all of that? Are you needing some queer femme tlc? If so, take a look at the work these two beautiful and generous femmes are doing and see if you might like to allow them to shower you in femme love and healing.

Femme Love Heal World.

Every Monday, I offer a Meditation for Queer Femmes, in the spirit of my maternal grandmother, Mimi, who was fabulous, and from whom I inherited her Meditations for Women. Would you like to offer up a Meditation of your own? I would love that! Send it along to me at

Since 2016, I here at The Total Femme have done my best to post thrice a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy Dingy on Wednesday, and Femme Friday on you know when. I’m pulling back the reins now, darlings, and going down to once a week, this Meditation. This doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear from you. Send me your poetry, your musings, your art, your wonderful you, and I will love you and hold you and feature you right here. So let me hear from you! And stop by on Mondays for a bit of sacred femme space.
