What makes you feel most connected to your femininity?

“​The biggest thing that makes me feel most connected to my femininity would be my emotional, mental, physical, and financial independence. I do not rely any other person except myself to take care of me.

I think this gives me such a sense of security and happiness; I feel like I can accomplish anything!

Being completely independent forces me to take full responsibility for my life and dreams, when I succeed or fail I have nobody to credit for it but myself.”

What outfit do you feel most sexy in?

“I am very girly, so I absolutely LOVE getting dressed up for a night out with my girls in a fun mini or midi dress.

I will say that no matter what I wear, it is necessary for me to be fully comfortable! Wearing something that either doesn’t fit right or is not comfortable even if it looks sexy, doesn’t make me feel sexy so I will not wear it!”

Has anyone ever judged you for showing your more feminine, emotional side? How did you deal with that?

“I feel as a women, society expects us to fit into a very confined box emotionally. If you are a women and you express too much emotion, you’re labeled as “irrational” or “crazy”.

If you don’t express enough, emotional people may think you don’t have that caring or “motherly” instinct.

I feel like often times in life – specifically with men – I run into the problem of being told I am overreacting for letting them know how something they have said or done makes me feel.

As far as dealing with it, I simply don’t. If a man or any person for that matter isn’t willing or able to try and understand my feelings or emotions, then they probably just aren’t meant to be in my life. Anyone who really cares for you will always do their best to understand.”

At what point in your life did you start to really step into your femininity and the divinity that comes with that?

[trigger warning, sexual assault/rape]

“It was a few months after New Years of 2017. I was about 24 years old. I was living in San Diego, renting a room from my ex fiancé because I couldn’t afford my own apartment and didn’t have any of my own friends at the time.

I was very dependent on him financially and emotionally. It is safe to say that I was incredibly lost in life – I had no direction.

For New Years I decided to go on a date (Tinder – this is why I do not recommend it). I drove up to Oceanside, CA and we went to a bar, Cabos, for some drinks and tacos. My date had offered to go to the bar and order our drinks… the bar is not busy and I remember finding it odd how long it took him to come back, then I noticed he had disappeared.

He finally came back and continued our date, it seemed to be going well I remember I was having a fun time. Unfortunately I do not remember much after that. I have some faded images in my head of what happened next, but I won’t get into the details.

The next clear memory I remember is being woken up in the dirt of military barracks by a marine that was on duty. He asked me if I was ok and instructed that I needed to leave immediately. I explained that I was unsure where I was and that I did not have my car. He was very kind and helped me get off of the base and even called an Uber/Lyft for me.

I got back to my car and eventually got myself home. I was violently ill for about two days. I had been drugged and raped.

The next few months were awful. I was in and out of doctors offices and hospitals and on and off of medication. I got so depressed I couldn’t handle it anymore and was ready to end my life.

I’m not sure what exactly changed, I just know I looked at my dog (he is my baby) and I realized if I was gone nobody would take care of him. He needed me, even if it was only him, someone needed me.

I decided it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself, and it was absolutely time to stop relying on men or anyone for that matter.

From that day on every single action I took or decision I made was to better my life and to make me a stronger woman. I wanted to use my experience to help others, but I couldn’t do that unless i pulled myself together and set a positive example for others.”

What’s your favorite self-care ritual?

“My absolute favorite self-care ritual is running myself a bath, dropping Dr. Teals in the warm water, pouring myself some wine and relaxing.

After that I will watch my favorite Harry Potter movie and then get some good sleep!”

 What do you love most about being a woman?

“​I LOVE being a woman. I love being a woman because I truly believe we are the toughest group of people on the planet.

I love pushing boundaries and proving people wrong, even proving myself wrong. I love how I personally am able to be so feminine, yet so strong… as this is not a social norm for much of the world.”

What inspires your creativity most?

“I definitely feel that I am most inspired my other women.  I see all of their beautiful accomplishments and it makes me want to be the best woman I can be.”

How do you express your creative side?

“I am not very artsy, but I would say I express myself through writing and just simply sharing my experiences and story with others. I love to help people so I try to do so any way I can.”

Women are intuitive beings by nature. What’s one instance where you’ve felt called to really tap into your intuition and listen to that voice inside of you?

“​I feel whenever I am around another sexual or domestic assault survivor… I can just tell.  I can see it in their face and eyes, and I just know I want to do anything I can for them to be as supportive as possible.”

Women have an intrinsic trait where we tend to avoid confrontation, and handle issues passively. Because of this, we can often manipulate the situation and get our way without fighting. What’s one time that you’ve seen this trait show through you?

“This one is definitely a harder question for me to answer. I try to really be mindful of my thoughts and actions in life and be as up front and honest as possible.

I work hard to be a direct person as a whole – a no-bs type of woman. I feel that I personally have gotten better results in my conversations and situations when I am more direct.”

When did you really start to feel confident in yourself? Was there a specific moment or event that caused you to embrace yourself with love and step into confidence?

“I started to feel confident once I started setting small goals and I began reaching them!”

Was there a time you ever doubted yourself? And how did you overcome your doubt?

“I doubted myself when I was first fully on my own in California. I felt like I was failing and disappointing myself and my family.  

I simply kept going, pushed through and believed in myself!”

As women, we are too often told we need to change the way we look, and the media and beauty industries can pick on our insecurities. How do you like to honor your body and remind yourself how beautiful and perfect you are? 

“It is definitely hard at times to have a good self image as a woman when media and society are showing you all things that are considered imperfect on the female body.

Personally, I choose to surround myself with supportive, strong, beautiful women. I also feel it is important to never think negative thoughts about other women or their bodies (yes this includes celebrities who seem to have no imperfection) because no woman ever became stronger by bringing others down.

I know I give my 110% into every aspect of my life, and because of this I feel secure and confident in myself.”

What advice would you give to a young girl who isn’t confident in her body and femininity yet?

“The best advice I can give to any young woman reading this is to believe in yourself. If you feel like believing in yourself is difficult, just take everything with a grain of salt.

Take everything one day at a time and remember nobody gained any success overnight. Remember that people will try and bring you down and you will be told no a million times before you are told yes.

Don’t listen to those no’s. Sometimes the ‘no’ may even come from people close to you.

Find a strong group of good positive women to surround yourself with, and never give up on yourself. Lastly, remember that you are the only you there is in this world, and this makes you beautiful and unique.”

Women are naturally highly sensitive beings, and we deeply feel our emotions. How do you honor your emotions and give yourself space to feel?

“I am a introvert, so I always make sure I have at least one hour to myself at the end of the day.  I use this time to just decompress and relax.  

If I ever feel strong emotions throughout the day, I make sure I don’t react until I have had time to relax.  I think this is necessary for me to be the best person I can be.”

As women, and divine feminine beings, we’re given the precious ability to create life. In our society, we’re told we need to be mothers and raise a family. While having the incredible ability to create life and give birth, not every woman decides to become a mom, and that’s okay. What are your thoughts on this topic? How do you feel about being able to create the most precious thing on earth – life itself?

“I think a woman should be able to do whatever she wants. Personally, I would love to be a mother. But I only want this if it is with the right man because I refuse to settle.

Some women simply do not want to be mothers which is okay! Whatever a woman would like to do, she should do.

Women do not need permission to make their own decisions.

The divine feminine energy within you is inherently strongly connected to nature – Mother Earth. What is your favorite way to spend time in nature and honor Mother Earth?

“I absolutely love hiking.  Hiking is a way for me to feel peace within myself and also give me the chance to admire the nature and world around me.”

As women, we are the embodiment of Divine Feminine energy, but we also have Divine Masculine energy within us. Do you often feel like you have more feminine energy than masculine, or vice versa? How does the energy that you think is most dominant within you often express itself through you? 

“I feel like I have more feminine energy. I think feminism is often expressed through my thoughts, feelings, and actions.  

I love being feminine and being a feminist!”

Arguing? Spiritual People Don’t Do That…

Published

on

blog cover pics 4

If you’re reading this, you’re probably human…

Which means, you’ve probably been in an argument a few times.

Arguing is something that we’ve been taught to do since we were really little. 

Everyone was programmed by their parents’ conversations, siblings, teachers…

We were programmed to respond in certain ways depending on our environment growing up. 

We soaked in everything around us as children, without discernment (which was of no fault to us as we were probably not taught discernment), without knowing that what we’re soaking in and absorbing is shaping us, likely for the rest of our lives.

The way you argue is likely the way you saw those around you arguing when you were growing up. 

Is arguing a bad thing?

No, because nothing is good or bad unless you give it that meaning. 

The real question, in my opinion, is “Is arguing serving me?”

The title of this article (completely sarcastic BTW) is to play on the fact that many people think that spiritual people shouldn’t, or don’t, argue. 

That’s completely false. 

Spiritual people aren’t perfect and we all have moments where we fall back into the program of the matrix. 

The goal is to care so much about how you feel, your state of being, your emotional frequency output…

that you don’t want to do anything that brings you in a state where you’re not feeling in alignment and in a space of unconditional love for yourself, and for those around you.

That’s what it means to be dedicated on your spiritual path. 

Nonetheless, spiritual people aren’t perfect – as you’re probably already aware of! 

And while you’re an amazing, beautiful, powerful soul who’s reading this message..

You’re not perfect either!

And that’s totally okay, because like I said in the beginning of this article…

You’re human. 

You came here to be human, which means to be perfectly imperfect. 

Love on the parts of yourself that feel they need to enter an argument from a place that is not of unconditional love. 

If you need to get your point across, do it with love, in a way that doesn’t breed fear, hate, or hard feelings.

A reminder that arguing only breeds that in which we do not want. 

Love you.

What makes you feel most connected to your femininity?

“Dressing up, and doing my makeup really helps me tap into that feminine side.”

What outfit do you feel most sexy in?

“A bralette, some flowing goddess pants, a kimono, my snake necklace, snake sandals, my lion rings, and gold bracelet, and my chandelier earrings. Also can’t forget a full face of makeup!”

Has anyone ever judged you for showing your more feminine, emotional side? How did you deal with that?

“Yes, I’ve had a couple of people. At first it hurt my feelings, but after doing some healing I realized it was because I myself used to judge this part of myself. Once I healed that relationship, I stopped attracting people that judged me for that.”

At what point in your life did you start to really step into your femininity and the divinity that comes with that?

“Actually at this point right now. I feel more connected to this aspect of myself than I ever have before.”

What’s your favorite self-care ritual?

“Definitely giving love to my physical body. Whether that’s through self pleasure, rubbing myself down with oils, doing my nails and hair, and taking reiki infused baths.”

The sacred elixirs flow from me, and I drink from this source. It provides me with vitality, with nourishment, it grants me access to infinite creation energy and unlimited potential. From this nourishment I can bring forth life, alchemize lead into gold, transform and transmute, I can create and make all the love I wish to! Life to me is a lover wanting to give, and it basks in joy when you moan out in gratitude, and when you say “yes, more!” Life has infinite ways to love you, and wants to love you. It is you loving yourself, so how do you wish to be loved? Life kept whispering to me all the things it wanted to bless me with and asking me “what makes you feel good?” This voice was a temptress her fragrance was erotically magnetizing, yet when I realized this temptress was me, I gave in. She was not a threat, but she was liberation. I let her seduce me, I let her open up my eyes, I received her, and she lit up my senses and reminded me of my worth. She reminded me how orgasmic life can be. How wonderful this connection exists in harmonious union, how she pours into me as I pour into her. 💦🔥 #goddess #shakti #divinesensuality #earthenergy #nectarforthegods #lifeforceenergy #tantra #selflove #selfworship

 What do you love most about being a woman?

“Ahh so many things! Being a woman is amazing. But I’d say how intuitive we are, and that we are powerfully connected to the realms of the unseen, and magick.”

What inspires your creativity most?

“Being outside in nature always sparks my creative fire.”

How do you express your creative side?

“Through doing my makeup and taking pictures, writing poetry, drawing, and cooking.”

Women are intuitive beings by nature. What’s one instance where you’ve felt called to really tap into your intuition and listen to that voice inside of you?

“When I was ending a karmic relationship. I had to really ask myself from a deeper place, “is this healthy for me?” And it led me to letting go of something that wasn’t serving me anymore.”

Women have an intrinsic trait where we tend to avoid confrontation, and handle issues passively. Because of this, we can often manipulate the situation and get our way without fighting. What’s one time that you’ve seen this trait show through you?

“It was with my sister. We’d sometimes bump heads about how [to do] certain things. But instead of me fighting about it, I’d suggest going to get some food and that I’d pay for gas. I knew what to say, and how she’d react to avoid it turning into a bigger problem.”

I’ve been in this space of radical self acceptance, forgiveness, and compassion. Last week I did a guided meditation to heal my womb, and it truly shook up my world. Up came all the self hatred I felt towards myself, the trauma I’ve experienced, that the women in my family have experienced, our ancestors, and the pain that has taken place to gaia and her children throughout history. I trembled, tears pouring down seeming not to end, my womb contracting from all the pain, but through my breathing I allowed it all to leave. My guides surrounded me, ancient womb healers placed their hands on my stomach and spoke blessings over it, over me. There in that space my womb came alive, the woman within me now rising up in deep remembrance of her power. I’ve been still integrating all of this. But over this past weekend with the full moon energy, I felt myself coming alive even more. I felt my desires fully for the first time and spoke on them, and said yes to them. I looked at myself with pure love, acceptance, and forgiveness. Forgiving the times where I didn’t appreciate myself, forgiveness for not knowing what I do now, forgiveness for putting myself through certain things, forgiveness for denying myself the love I deserve, forgiveness for speaking negatively about myself and this body. This body is sacred. My womb is sacred and wise, and it’s time I fully accept that. I accept the stretch marks, The scars, The plumpness of my figure. All of me deserves love. And so I vow to commit to loving myself, everyday, in all forms. #selflove #wombhealing #gaia #motherearth #ancient #nurture #goddess #meditation

When did you really start to feel confident in yourself? Was there a specific moment or event that caused you to embrace yourself with love and step into confidence?

“It was another romantic situation. I had fallen for someone that didn’t feel the same way, and he mentioned some traits about myself that I needed to look at.

That moment sparked me to look deeper at not only my shadow, but my light. I started to embrace what was within, what I had to offer to the world.

It made me realize I don’t have to chase anyone or anything, but simply be as I am. And that She is enough. Once I did that I started to feel better about myself, and it was genuine confidence that emerged.”

Dear me, I fucking love you. I love your beautiful expression of the Divine. I love your soft supple skin, and the way the sun shines upon you like a radiant diamond. Your magnetism makes it so nothing can resist your pull. Your eyes are deep like the roots that run through this earth, they say “tell me the truth and don’t hold back” Your soft lips that speak words of love and praise. How powerful you are when you command presence just from your very energy. People can’t help but to sit up and LISTEN. You are a queen, the powerful embodiment of the feminine ways and keeper of ancient wisdom. You are so unique and complex, a mystery that I still have yet to figure out, I simply am grateful to witness your magnificence. You defy all logic and there truly is no one way to describe you. You are a continuous expanding ever changing piece of art. The Divine knew what it was doing for the world when you were created. I love you and will continue to explore your depths and unknown places with joy, curiosity, respect, and acceptance. – Derricka #selflove #goddess #queen #beauty #grace #divinederricka

Was there a time you ever doubted yourself? And how did you overcome your doubt?

“Oh yes, many times actually. One was when I started to really express my gifts to the world. I doubted if I was all that I felt I was. I doubted if I’d actually make a difference in people’s lives.

But the way I overcame it was when I went into the part of myself that was doubtful, I spoke to her and we had a honest conversation. I reminded her that we have what it takes, and that we were born with these specific gifts for a reason.

It took time but the doubt started to ease up. But in my moments of doubt, prayer also is my go to.”

As women, we are too often told we need to change the way we look, and the media and beauty industries can pick on our insecurities. How do you like to honor your body and remind yourself how beautiful and perfect you are? 

“I write love letters to myself. I also sit in front of the mirror naked and speak out loud how beautiful I am. I speak to every part that I ever felt self conscious about, and I shower it with love. I also thank my body for all the work it does. Gratitude has shifted my self worth in major ways.”

What advice would you give to a young girl who isn’t confident in her body and femininity yet?

“Don’t ever compare yourself to another for you are absolutely perfect as you are. No one else in the world could do what you are meant to, or be you. Your uniqueness is what makes you special.

The Divine made you exactly the way you were meant to be for a reason. Within you is an infinite source of beauty, wisdom, love power, and potential. You carry the codes of the women that have gone before you, and they are guiding you every step of the way.

You are never alone in what you feel. You are valid, you are worthy of all of your hearts dreams and desires. You don’t ever have to chase love, or validation because your worth was already set before you came into physical form. You could never be without love because it’s what you are.

Honor what it means to be a woman, and celebrate yourself throughout all moments because you deserve to be celebrated. Remember you are loved unconditionally forever, and always.”

Women are naturally highly sensitive beings, and we deeply feel our emotions. How do you honor your emotions and give yourself space to feel?

“I make sure that I always have a private space I can go to and be alone with the divine, and myself. In that space I’ll write about my feelings, I’ll cry and release, I’ll scream, dance, I do whatever is needed to let the emotions move through me.  I also remind myself that it’s okay to feel what I feel.” 

As women, and divine feminine beings, we’re given the precious ability to create life. In our society, we’re told we need to be mothers and raise a family. While having the incredible ability to create life and give birth, not every woman decides to become a mom, and that’s okay. What are your thoughts on this topic? How do you feel about being able to create the most precious thing on earth – life itself?

“I feel every woman regardless if they choose to be a mother or not, have the divine mother codes within them. It’s not just birthing a physical child, but maybe a creative project, or something you’re manifesting.

We have this powerful ability to breathe life into anything around us. That could be our love life, ourselves, our friendships, our career. All of that is tied to our feminine ability to create life, and nurture life.

I do feel that we should be more respectful to women who consciously choose not to be mothers. It doesn’t make them any less of a woman.

But for me, I do know I want to and will be a mother to physical children. I think it’s so beautiful that women have this ability to bring spirit into human form. It’s powerful to witness what women go through, and their ability to literally carry life within them.

How they were designed with everything they needed to make this happen. When I think about what I’m capable of as a woman in birthing life, it’s a power I can’t fully describe into words. It’s an ancient remembrance for sure.”

The divine feminine energy within you is inherently strongly connected to nature – Mother Earth. What is your favorite way to spend time in nature and honor Mother Earth?

“I love just being present in nature. Putting my feet on the grass, feeling the pulse of Mother Earth beneath my feet, listening to the birds, feeling the wind, the sun. Experiencing her with all my senses. I love to speak with the spirits of the earth, sing to them, dance with them, and just sit with them having conversations. I also love to leave offerings for Mother Earth. I’ll leave her flowers, or I’ll send her reiki.”

As women, we are the embodiment of Divine Feminine energy, but we also have Divine Masculine energy within us. Do you often feel like you have more feminine energy than masculine, or vice versa? How does the energy that you think is most dominant within you often express itself through you? 

“I used to definitely be more in masculine side, but now I feel my feminine is much more dominant. It shows up in my ability to communicate easily with The Divine, and be a channel and vessels for it to express itself through me. Also my ability to be unconditionally loving to everyone.”
