Tell us about yourself!: I'm a Cancer Sun, Taurus Moon, Aries Rising -- I love astrology, intuitive dance, plants... I love new ideas around healing and I love you. :)
What is your definition of what a “wild woman” is?: My definition of a wild woman is a woman that is in touch with her soul. She listens to the quiet, loud, passive, strong, or child-like voice within and listens with compassion. Listening and taking action to the requests of this voice makes her unique, makes her crazy, makes her wild!
How would you describe your life was like before starting your journey of being a wild woman?: My life before starting my journey as a wild woman was anxious, scattered and insecure. I was trying to fit in at school and in college. By the end of college, I knew I couldn't be tamed anymore. My restlessness had grown and I gave up on the ambition to be a 9-5 Non-Profit office baby. I realized that I would work toward my visions in my own way and, thus, I've been on a journey of self-discovery since.
What were your biggest insecurities before engaging your inner wild woman?: Not having myself together. I have struggled with perfectionism and, as an entrepreneur, I have strived to discipline myself and to diligently schedule my days. I was using the same tools and standards as everyone else, so I wanted to be super productive, super active, super healthy. I wanted to achieve a model of perfection that was unreachable.
What is your life like now that you are actively engaging your inner wild woman?: My life today is made up of travel. I trust my inner guidance and go with the flow. I am always surrounded by abundance, beautiful company with beautiful souls. I am living a new reality every moment. I indulge my imagination and travel realms. I love myself, I sometimes move slowly, sometimes fast, but mostly slow. I take care of my body with oils, with stretching, with moving my feet, with feeling the fresh air on my skin. I live mostly in other dimensions beyond ego. I want to join others in this dimension to truly love one another, to challenge each other to be our highest selves. To be in a state of total LOVE!!!
What are your five most favorite aspects of yourself as a wild woman?: Visionary, loving, nourishing, expanding, flowing.
What was the biggest realization, experience, or transformation that most helped you to start unleashing and embracing your wild feminine nature?: I continue to have all of these experiences, but I recall my senior year in college I wanted to follow my passion and I did everything in my integrity to make the most of that year only to be faced with so many obstacles. I realized I needed to get out there and put everything to practice. I let myself experiment with it. I let myself try it and grow.
What is your favorite part of expressing your wild feminine nature?: My favorite part is being myself. Knowing that my wild, feminine nature is me at my core. And me at my core is oneness, is the spirit, is universe. There's no wrong or falsehood in that. I can't go wrong, I can only enjoy the ride.
When do you feel the wildest?: I feel the most wild when I'm dancing barefoot in nature. When I'm outside, grounded, feeling her, listening to her, sensing her.
Why did you decide to participate in Wild Women Unveiled.: I decided to participate in Wild Woman Unveiled because I want to share my message and to strengthen the wave of messages that are reJOYcing to be heard!
What is your message to other women out there who are just beginning their journey as a wild woman, or haven’t started yet but feel the call of the wild woman speaking to their soul?: Observe everything that you feel, think, perceive, desire... Observe it ALL. Judge none of it. The key lies in learning to filter out what it is you truly want and engaging in that which makes you fully happy, but you have to start allowing it all to be. It all starts with recognition of where you are right now and loving that place. I recommend that you move slower to listen more, move your body to free it, and laugh to fully enjoy this journey!
