Some days I’m a Goddess.
Some days I’m a wild child.
Some days I’m a fragile mess.
Most days I’m a little of all three.
Every day I show up.

The problem is not that people don’t love themselves. The problem is people don’t know they don’t love themselves. People are so focused on war with everyone else, they don’t realize that they are at war with themselves. The first step in waking up my battered heart was courageously realizing that mindlessly repeating the affirmation “I love myself” was just a fabrication I was trying to convince myself of. Being aware and honest about that fabrication was my first act of self-love.

Meditative, devotional, and prayer practices that are seated, still, contemplative, serious and thought based — are so last century. Your enjoyment, your pleasure, your aliveness, as felt by your feeling, changing, cycling, moving woman’s body, are the preferred mediums for our collective soul to have a word with you. Cultivating your light and tending to your fire will let you hear the quiet, wise voice of your truth, and will give you the courage and confidence to follow what you hear.

Reach so high that you stand at the very apex of creation,
so far in the sky that you behold the crack in the cosmos.

80% of our attention goes outward
20% of our attention goes inward

You deserve a lover who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.
You deserve a lover who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.
You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.
You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.
You deserve a lover who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry.
~ Frida Kahlo
A beautiful, powerful and wise woman
Daughter of the earth and sister of the stars
Boundless badass creatrix
In this life, I got this.
My challenges are my teachers as a student of life
I choose to be empowered by everything
I’m exactly where I’m meant to be
Accepting all that I am and all I experience
As divinely aligned perfection
I focus on my radiance and not my flaws
I look in the mirror with admiration
Knowing it’s taken everything to get here
Washed clean of old stories, I stand an empty vessel
Alive and free
I breathe in possibility
I am walking abundance
And I trust life with each step
Easily bringing my dreams to fruition
Rooted in my womb I act on intuition
And my inspirations lead to orgasmic creativity
And I have a luscious, healthy, feminine body
I honor this temple and listen to her needs
And my self-care is non-negotiable
Because I am worthy and most of service
In a luscious overflow of nourishment
I love who I am body, mind and spirit
I am limitless Shakti incarnate
A bountiful emanation of Mother Life
Joy is who I am and pleasure is my birthright
And it is safe now to embody all that I am
As this world needs my gifts
And is asking for my medicine
I am a revolution
Here to write a new story of women
And together we remember
That we are untethered and so we take flight
And to this world we offer our light
Restoring the balance and sacredness of life
We claim our Queendom and welcome heaven on earth
In our lives, in our bodies, and for all beings now
We are in this together
I love you
I am grateful for you
And it’s going to be an amazing day.
