What does being an Everyday Goddess mean to you?

It means so many things but most importantly being am Everyday Goddess means stepping into my true self. It means that I'm comfortable in my own skin and that I've dropped the mask everyone else expects me to wear. I am who I am 😉

 

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've had glimpses of the Divine Feminine ever since I was 15 or 16 years old. I had a jolt of awareness one day in French class at just how powerful I was when it came to the opposite sex. Of course that awareness was lost to my teenage self but I never forgot the a-ha moment. Since then, it's been a gentle unfolding, along with one huge cosmic dope slap, as I walk along my own path. The Divine Feminine unveils herself in the right time…always.

 

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

The misconceptions I had of being a wife and mom – geez, I did a 180 on both of these. Instead of playing these roles the way we collectively see them and believe them to be, I re-wrote the script and I now play them my way.

 

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

Two of the greatest inner gifts have to be awareness of where I am in time and space and creativity. I no longer rush through my days on auto-pilot. There's this subtle (and not so subtle) awareness and mindfulness that allows me take my time, think things through, and notice things I've never seen. And the creativity I've experienced is sometimes mind blowing. Writing and photography are my creative outlets.

 

Can you share some of your favorite sacred feminine rituals?

The most sacred ritual I want to share is that I make the time to take care of myself – whether it's time to meditate or practice yoga or go to the dojo and practice Muay Thai Kickboxing. I make time for me.

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

There's no particular Goddess I feel I'm intimately drawn to but I do feel like I'm a little bit Athena, the Goddess of War, a little bit Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, a little bit Princess Diana of Themyscira (also known as Wonder Woman), and a little bit Tinker Bell, who's not really a Goddess but a fairy…and a mischievous one at that!

 

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

Ladies – take care of yourselves. When you say you don't have time to take care of you what you're really saying is that you don't value yourself enough to put you on your own priority list. You need to be first on your list. You are no good to anyone if your emotional gas tank is empty. Please, take care of you. Start today.
