What makes you feel most connected to your femininity?
“What makes me feel most connected to my feminism is being around mother nature and
other strong women. I say this because especially from where I am from, which is
Guatemala, and specifically a Garifuna background, the generational line of women in my
life are very strong.
The women are firm and providing, and I see qualities of them in my
What outfit do you feel most sexy in?
“An outfit I feel most sexy in, funny enough is no outfit at all! I have always had pride in
my bare skin. It is what I feel most seductive in because it is me at its essence.”
Has anyone ever judged you for showing your more feminine, emotional side? How did you deal with that?
“When showing my emotional side, it is only natural as human beings.
I feel judgements naturally too from others… but, it is extremely important as human beings to be empathetic and understand one another without releasing any negative projections.
It is simply about helping others ‘let it out’. Simple. I do not deal with it..
I just simply understand that everyone’s flow is different, but I know mine.”
At what point in your life did you start to really step into your femininity and the divinity that comes with that?
“There was no specific ‘point’ in my life where I stepped into my divinity.
It is in multiple layers revealing itself through everyday life. Divinity to me is a lifelong process. However, I notice that when I move on momentum with no thought and lots of self-control… This is my divine energy at its prime.”
What’s your favorite self-care ritual?
“My favorite self-care ritual is moving my body.
I have been dancing since I was about 10 years old and doing yoga since I was less than 7… It is important to understand and feel the tension in your physical body.
When you stretch and breathe, you feel your body grow spiritually 10 inches taller!”
What do you love most about being a woman?
“What I love most being a woman is that I have the capability to carry life within me. This holds plenty of responsibility, but it is something that obviously woman have the power to have.
It is a unique and special quality that I would not take for granted.”
What inspires your creativity most?
“What inspires my creativity the most is solidarity and being in nature. When I mean being in nature, I include traveling as well!”
How do you express your creative side?
“I express my creative side in multiple ways, but dominantly it is through my actions. Whether it is making clothes, photos, or short films if I feel in my gut to create something I say no more and just act.”
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?
“One instance where I felt called to tap to into my intuition is when I noticed signs of my
inner child within me – I have never changed my interests. I’ve always, since young, had a
calling to save the world and help others.
I remember seeing animals suffering through graphic videos on Tumblr and telling my mother immediately I want to go vegan etc… With discipline, and persistence, you notice qualities of your childhood and your ancestors.
That is your intuition, your gut… Do not think. Just do.”
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?
“I personally do not avoid confrontation, if I feel any energy shift I confront it head on or speak up about it.
However, your initial process of feeling any judgment or hurt naturally allows you to bottle up any issues.
I’ve learned overtime [that] if I feel something, to just address it right away.”
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 really started feeling confident in myself once I shut off external factors and physically
did things I wanted to do.
Whether it be creative projects or stay committed to my goals for the day/ week/ year. It takes major self-control to be like ‘okay no time to waste, let’s do this and let’s do it now.’
There are no specific moments, rather it is momentum.”
Was there a time you ever doubted yourself? And how did you overcome your doubt?
“It is natural to doubt yourself… I overcome this by understanding what OTHERS think is out of my control. I can only control my actions.
That again is my fuel. At the end of the day it is important to sleep with a clean and forgiving heart.
So, I do not take opinion’s personally because again I cannot control that, and quite frankly it does not matter to me.”
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?
“This is an amazing question. Yes, I do agree that as women we are picked at through
society and the concept of beauty is forever changing.
I honor my body by taking time to treat it carefully. Through the foods I eat, my attitude, exercise… Everything connects. I am not perfect, but I know that I can work on bettering myself endlessly.
What advice would you give to a young girl who isn’t confident in her body and femininity yet?
“The advice I would give to a young girl who is not confident in her body is, to ignore all outside agendas. It is your body from now until the end.
Either you will treat it with proper care or tear it down. I want all the younger girls to understand that it is a process, but once you realize no one will ever wear your skin, that is your power.
I hope that you use that perspective as fuel, and embrace it!”
Women are naturally highly sensitive beings, and we deeply feel our emotions. How do you honor your emotions and give yourself space to feel?
“Empathy. As human beings I believe this is one the most powerful tools to create
I honor my emotions by understanding that it will always be a wave, never
Therefore, I have to let it flow. The only way is up. So, stay focused, take proper
care and allow it to happen naturally.”
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 actually appreciate the women who are able to be upfront and say I do not want
children. I rather that then have future generations damaged or neglected from proper care/time.
BUT – I’ve noticed a common ‘mom-guilt’ quality among mothers. No one is a
perfect parent or human… It is just best to let your children form into their natural selves.”
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?
“My favorite way to spend time in nature and honor the planet is by giving back! Hopefully I am able to build schools/ resources for those who need it the most across the globe.
Until then, I do little things such as use reusable bags, less plastic waste, and utilize nature friendly products.”
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 notice my ‘masculine’/ ‘feminine’ energy every now and then, but the energy I have within me that expresses it the most is definitely just a balance between the two.
The dominance that right now I am focused on is creating healthy habits so that I can give back to those in need. Self-control is extremely important, tomorrow is never promised.
To whoever is reading and wants to create, do not think about it anymore. Start right now. Do it!”

Do This Simple Technique To Release Negative Thoughts and Feelings
Do This Simple Technique To Release Negative Thoughts and Feelings
I’m gonna be realllll bold here…
So you think you love yourself, huh?
I mean really. Do you think you love yourself???
I thought I loved myself.
I thought I had done the work.
I thought I had done enough meditating,
I thought I had done enough soul-searching,
I thought I had done enough shadow work and integration….
Self love is not a college degree.
It is not something you earn or tap into once you’ve “done enough of the work”.
It is a moment-by-moment, unconditional love.
It is constantly choosing love, over that little voice (or big loud scary voice) that tells you that you aren’t enough.
It’s choosing love over the voice that tells you you’re not good enough.
It’s choosing love over the voice that tells you that you should feel ashamed, or that you should feel guilty for the things you’ve done in the past.
It’s choosing love when you eff up.
It’s choosing love when you feel afraid, or when you feel worried about the future.
Self love isn’t a degree.
Self love isn’t something you earn,
It isn’t something that just stays with you, because you’ve felt it or tapped into it a few times, or even many times.
You have to constantly choose love.
Unconditional love for yourself, and really for everyone around you, as we are all really one.
When you constantly choose love, it becomes second nature to keep choosing it.
But yet, it is a choice.
Not a badge.
Not a degree.
Not a permanent state.
We can make a habit out of choosing love.
We can also make a habit out of choosing fear, worry, anxiety, self-judgement, judgement upon others…
We can make it a point to choose love. To consciously choose love.
And even when you’ve made a habit out of choosing love…
You still may experience times when you might choose fear, or worry, or judgement…
And that’s okay.
You don’t need to run away from those things.
You can acknowledge them, and move past them.
Call them out for what they really are – They are the absence of love.
These negative feelings and emotions, they don’t belong to you. They don’t belong to your true self.
If you feel yourself getting caught up in these types of feelings and emotions, here’s a simple tip/exercise that you can apply at any time, to relieve unpleasant feelings, thoughts and emotions!
- Take a deep breath. Breathe in for 6 counts, hold for 3 counts, then breathe out for 9 counts.
- Breathe in again, using the same breathing pattern – but this time, picture the negative or unpleasant thoughts and emotions jumping into an elevator (during the breath in and hold at the top), an elevator that’s appeared inside your brain.
- As you release your breath, picture the elevator going down, stopping at your heart center as you fully release.
- If you’re not driving or doing something else while doing this, place your hands over your heart. Feel your heart center expand. Feel the massive electromagnetic energy coming from your heart, into your hands, back into your heart, and spreading all around you into your auric field.
When we drop into our heart center, we can really FEEL whether or not what we’re thinking, feeling, etc. is coming from our Higher Selves. We automatically tap into the frequency of love.
And you have the ability to do this at any time, anywhere.
This is just one example, one reminder of how powerful we truly are – as spiritual beings, having a human experience.
And feel free to do this exercise often, as many times as you feel the need to.
Because remember, self love – love in general… does not come in the form of a badge. It does not come in a degree.
Choose love, in this and every moment… because this moment, now, is all that really exists.
I have so much love for all of you reading.
Arguing? Spiritual People Don’t Do That…
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 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.
