What does being an Everyday Goddess mean to you?

It means loving boldly, laughing easily and living with lightness. It means expressing yourself with freedom and confidence unabashedly. It means identifying and exploring what makes YOU uniquely feminine because it is different for everyone and then owning it with pride. It means knowing you are enough, just as you are…and committing to share your brilliance and magnificence with the world, no matter what.

 

At what age did you awaken to the presence of the Divine Feminine and would you describe it as a sudden awakening or a gentle unfolding?

I awoke suddenly when my marriage fell apart in my late 30’s. I had been living primarily in my masculine energy and let’s just say two men in a marriage doesn’t work! My husband at the time sought feminine energy elsewhere and that was actually a huge gift to me. I realized I had lost my core feminine essence. Although I thought I was doing everything right, I was way off balance, and had lost touch with me…so I went on a journey to find and reconnect with my authentic feminine self. It was a roller coaster of highs, lows, excitement, fun, fear and deep expansion – it brought me to where I am today.

 

What roles in your life had to transform in order for you to live authentically?

I had to give up the notion that the identity I had created for myself (successful career woman) gave me my value – understanding viscerally that who I am is enough. Let go of being a “rescuer”, when I was honest with myself and looked at the underlying motivation – that rescuing made me feel important and was very ego driven because I didn’t know how to tap into the importance of just being me. And I most definitely had to give up the role of being the man! Letting go of the need to prove my worth through achievements and accomplishments.

 

What have been some of the greatest inner gifts you’ve experienced since stepping into your feminine power?

Bar none I would have to say the sheer bliss that is not dependent on anything external like validation from others or incredible accomplishments. This is the bliss experienced by being in direct connection with God when your heart is so soft and expanded every breath of that connection brings tears of unparalleled joy. Being steeped in my heart is the happiest place I’ve been since stepping into my feminine essence.

 

Can you share some of your favorite sacred feminine rituals?

My favorite ritual is one I learned from my yoga mentor –I call it the Heart Opener Meditation. I love this exercise because when you drop down into your heart you automatically drop into your feminine – instantly. It’s also quite simple. Sit with your eyes closed and think about all the people in your life – as far back as you can remember – who have been there for you -shown you love and kindness, given you a shoulder to cry on, said something wise and comforting, given you a hug, a smile, their time and feel the gratitude you have for them. Do this for 5 minutes or until tears of appreciation roll down your cheeks. This will make you magnetic to love. :)

 

Is there a particular Goddess that you are intimately drawn to and why?

Not mythically speaking – but in today’s world I love Dolly Parton. She’s honest, warm and funny. She exudes feminine charm yet is incredibly strong – you feel it with her presence whether you see her live, hear her interviewed or read her book. She freely expresses herself, owns her talent, is comfortable in her skin and shines her magnificent self for all she’s worth. I admire her ability to let her feminine lead while dancing and singing through life. She simply sparkles!

 

Is there a personal message that you would like to share with women?  

Believe in your sparkling magnificence! Deep down, at the core of your being, you are a beautiful diamond – maybe it’s been buried for a while, maybe it needs to be dusted off, but trust that it’s there! And as you wipe the sludge off your shine, polishing every facet, living in integrity and honoring your truth, you change the trajectory of women everywhere – healing past and future generations of detrimental paradigms and patterns. Being in your feminine is powerful in the most loving way. Embrace it!
