What is your definition of what a “wild woman” is?: I've always bucked the trend of definitions so I'll keep this loose and fast... Being wild is honouring yourself, doing whatever the fuck you want to do and making no apologies for it. Getting to the root of one's authentic self, not someone else's idea of what you should be. Connecting to what matters to you. Doing things that exhilarate you, that satisfy you, that delight you, that humble you, that scare you, that deeply reward you.
How would you describe your life was like before starting your journey of being a wild woman?: I've always had a bit of wild woman exposed, I've just been exposing more and more as I get older. As the authentic wild self manifests, the more free one feels. Confidence increases, things start looking different. Too many fucks were given in my earlier years.
What were your biggest insecurities before engaging your inner wild woman?: I don't think there were any insecurities, I think it's been a learning process that slowly uncovers the ignorance and complacency of doing what the status quo does. I find this gets easier with age and being more comfortable in one's own skin is really a thing that happens.
What is your life like now that you are actively engaging your inner wild woman?: I feel more connected to myself and others. There is a paradigm shift that has happened in how I see things and others. Surrounding myself with other wild women has been crucial to this. Immersing yourself with other like-minded women really catalyzes the growth and discovery aspect of the journey.
What are your five most favorite aspects of yourself as a wild woman?:
- I've got a great attitude about anything that comes my way in life
- I am very intuitive with my own body and mental state and have a great ability to treat myself
- I love the little things in life
- My thirst for knowledge will never die
- I feel free and true to myself
What was the biggest realization, experience, or transformation that most helped you to start unleashing and embracing your wild feminine nature?: Being able to embrace my moon cycle and no longer deny a massive aspect of who I am. I was shocked at how much of a difference this has made in my life. So many other things have happened that have greatly enriched my life by no longer blocking this natural and fundamental piece of me as a woman. I still continue to uncover massive revelations and learnings about myself with embracing all of my femininity.
What is your favorite part of expressing your wild feminine nature?:Nothing can replace the feeling of honouring oneself. NOTHING. We all try to fill that with other shallow, dysfunctional stuff and time and time again it does not work. This is the real path to happiness.
When do you feel the wildest?: Always with my animals, I love absorbing their energy and spending time with them, especially while walking my dogs in nature. That brings me pure joy in the moment. Secondly would be while I am traveling. I love how it pushes me out of my comfort zone, allows me to experience incredible new sights, meet and connect with new people. The feeling of growth and learning while traveling is something I want in my life always. It has absolutely shaped me into a better person.
Why did you decide to participate in Wild Women Unveiled?: I love to spread the WW gospel! I hope more women wake up and come into their own authentic self. It's women like us that will change the world.
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?: Trust the process. Trust yourself. Honour yourself. Push through the fear. Go at your own pace. Your path is your path, don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. You matter. You are special. Worthiness is your birthright.
