Goddesses Share Their Secrets
What is success to you?
Being the best version of myself, constantly growing, learning and evolving. Being of service to others and the planet whilst taking care of myself too. Success to me is having the time and abundance in all areas to be able to do work that is meaningful to me, to be able to be part of shifting the paradigm, to connect with and enjoy those I love.
What is magic for you?
It is the mysterious, divine, miraculous energy that is present at all times if we are open to it.
What is love for you?
It is all that really matters. The beginning and the end.
What is your beauty/health practice?
I am mostly vegan, although I do small amounts of wild meat on occasion usually when I am with indigenous people in remote places. I love to be in nature as often as possible so I hike as much as I can - nature is my temple, I walk, I pray, I meditate, I breathe, I dance in the woods. I use only natural products on my skin, I haven't used any FeatherEagleSky products but they look delicious. I use coconut oil on my hair, my skin, I oil pull with it. I turn to nature for my medicine and for my health. I work with shaman often and regularly do cleansing ceremonies and rituals in the Amazon and in the high Andes.
What makes your spirit glow?
Walking in the rainforest always but especially at about 4pm when the light is filtering down through the canopy in the most magical way. Hiking in the wilderness anywhere. Spending time with beloved friends, talking, being together. Adventuring and exploring. Working on projects that I am passionate about. Being of service. Laughter. Dancing. Playing with my nieces and nephew. Galloping on horses. Loving my man.
How do you stay entered in the middle of chaos?
Breathing! No matter where I am or what is going on I can always take a few moments to close my eyes and breathe deeply into my belly and then down into the earth, to take a sacred pause to remember what is really important and to ask spirit to guide me.
What causes/organizations are you passionate about?
The preservation of the rain forests is my greatest passion, especially the Amazon region. And I am equally passionate about indigenous cultures having the right to be the architects of their own futures and the management of their ancestral lands. I love nature and love being with those who understand her the best, I love to walk with them and learn from them. I work with many organisations that I am deeply passionate about I am Ambassador for Amazon Watch, an organisation which fights for the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon region and a Champion for Clearwater which provides clean drinking water for those affected by contamination from Chevron in the Northern Ecuadorian Amazon. I am a huge fan of WECAN(Women's Earth and Climate Alliance).
If you could say one thing to the world what would you say?
Love is everything.
What has been the greatest lesson you've learned?
I am constantly learning, sometimes it is very painful, sometimes delightful. I am not sure what the greatest lesson I have learned is, often is it the quiet lessons that create the biggest change in my life. I think the most powerful one could be that the more I choose love and the more I choose to be guided by the divine the happier, more abundant, connected and inspired I feel!
If you aren't a mother how do you mother the world with your presence?
I am not a mother yet, but I think the mother archetype is one I draw on strongly. If only we could look at one another and the earth with the pure unconditional love that a mother gives her child, cherishing and fierce protection, then everything could shift in a millisecond. I see the earth as a great mother and it is my responsibility to cherish, respect and protect her. In my work and in my life my wish is to constantly evolve to be more loving mama in all that I do.
