Q. Can you tell us about your journey to connecting with the Goddess?
A. As a kid, I was mostly exposed to Lutheran and Methodist traditions that didn’t put a lot of attention on the divine feminine, but I was always intrigued by the mystery and the magical. I felt a deep sense of peace and power in nature. Though I was drawn to stories of goddesses and intuitively aware of a difference between feminine and masculine energies of creation, leadership, and relationship, even now I’ve only dipped my toe in the water of really getting to know different aspects of the Goddess.
It was sort of funny, then, that as soon as I saw the invitation to write for Stories of the Goddess, I knew I wanted to be part of the book!
As I describe in my chapter, I at first thought I would write about the Earth Mother as a teacher on how we as mothers can show up as more of ourselves for our children. It turned out that the Goddess had something slightly different in mind!
Q. How has embodying the essence of the divine feminine impacted your life and work?
A. Throughout my life, and like most women, I have been exposed to a lot of judgements and definitions of what feminine is supposed to look like. As a girl, I would see examples in books or media or how other girls behaved and what was rewarded and I would try to be that. When I became a woman, I judged my body, my work and my relationships based on trying to be a good daughter, friend, sister, lover, healer, wife. When I became a mother, I tried to be a mother like my own mother and looked incessantly to outside resources to understand how I could get motherhood right.
It’s taken me a long time, and it’s still a day to day choice, to get that embodying the essence of the divine feminine really means embodying the essence of me, even the aspects of myself I have judged as less desirable or “appropriate”.
At its core, that is the path I facilitate my clients along as well. Most of them come to me asking, “What am I supposed to do and be? What’s wrong with me and why can’t I get this motherhood thing right?” As they work with me they begin to ask different questions, like, “If I was truly being me, what would I choose?”, “What’s right about this and what is the beautiful energy underneath?” and “What gift am I to my children that I have not acknowledged?”
Q. Can you offer any advice to women who are just starting on their journey with the Goddess?
A. There is a concept in psychology called “confirmation bias.” It’s the tendency to seek out evidence of what we have already decided is true. As you begin to explore the different aspects of the goddess, what if you looked beyond what you are hoping to see and be open to the unexpected?
One of the beautiful things about studying goddesses and looking at how the energies of the divine feminine have been honored, exploited, worshiped, and attacked throughout history is it shows that what we take for granted now as normal and true was not necessarily considered normal or true in other cultures or times.
It helps us to recognize we have choices available in how we express our own feminine energies and potency beyond the models we see in our families, communities and cultures.
Q. How do you integrate your feminine power and wisdom into your personal and professional life?
A. A question I’ve been playing with a lot recently is, “If I was willing to be more like Nature and less like a human being with this, what choices would I have?”
As human beings, we get so caught up in trying to control outcomes, manage risk, and stay within the lines of the acceptable. We judge some energies as “bad” and others as “good”. We think in terms of creating safety and comfort and we lead with our minds.
Nature doesn’t have that point of view. Nature doesn’t try to fix anything or anyone. Nature is less about safety and predictability and more about constant change, adaptation and creation, even when it includes destruction or death.
So, to give a practical example, say I’m overwhelmed by my three-page to-do list and I don’t know where to start. If I ask, “If I was willing to be more like Nature with this, what would I choose?” then for me the significance of getting it right, handling everyone’s needs, and being a “good” mom, wife, business woman, etc. fall away.
The one or two items that are actually required right now to create and change spring into focus. I can choose from the energy of creation, self-nurturing, and birthing the future, versus obligation, problem solving and risk management.
And one could change the question in any way to clarify choosing from feminine power and wisdom, such as, “If I was more like Freyja or Tara or Athena with this, what choices would I have?” Or perhaps better yet, “If I was more the Goddess I truly be with this, what could I choose?”
Q. Can you share your thoughts on the role of the divine feminine in creating a better world?
A. In our present time, human beings have created a world that is very much about the polarity of getting things right or judging things as wrong. There is a lot of competition and comparing to see who’s right, what’s right, and prove like crazy that we’re not the ones who are wrong. All of that creates separation.
If you’re always trying to get everything right and prove you’re right, while secretly being afraid you’re wrong, you have to separate from your true being to measure all that and come to a conclusion about whether you are succeeding.
If the first thing you do when you meet someone is try to define them so you can decide if they share your points of view and if it’s safe to connect with them, that’s also separation.
One of the most potent elements of the divine feminine is oneness. Oneness isn’t about sameness or rightness or only the comfortable and acceptable. If we’re willing to stop rejecting ourselves first, we’ll also be able to give up the polarity of right and wrong and see the choices that would actually create a better world.
Q. How do you see the Goddess Awakening and rising in the world today?
A. For a long time the energies of the Goddess and the divine feminine have been treated as something that is a nice adjunct to the “more important” energies of productivity, dominance, and control.
Like, “Your magic and communion are cute, honey, but we gotta put food on the table and secure the perimeter.”
That point of view is starting to crack – we’re seeing empathy training in corporations. Everyone now acknowledges that self-compassion and nurturing ourselves is important. Though mostly the world still functions from fight, polarity and judgment, people are questioning whether the status quo is actually working for themselves or the planet.
What you see, especially in young people, is that the division of masculine and feminine, and the cult of the masculine ideal, is melting and becoming irrelevant.
The more we can all draw from all energies, including the potency of the goddess that can be kindness, gentleness or fierceness, the more choices we have and the more possibilities become available for us, the future and the world.
Q. Can you speak to the importance of sisterhood and community in the journey of the goddess?
A. The biggest issue I see with the Mamas I work with as clients, is they come to me already having decided they are wrong, they are a problem and they need to be fixed.
Competition and comparison have been used to splinter feminine power and turn us against each other. When women, and people in general, are willing to drop their points of view, let their barriers down, and be vulnerable, there is a tremendous possibility to reflect back to each other the beautiful energy that we are.
It is also way harder to judge someone else than it is to judge yourself, so when you see another woman who you honor and respect struggling with the same things you are, perhaps you can then give yourself more grace. I often invite my clients to expand out and look at themselves and their choices as if they were looking at a friend.
Ultimately we each have to have our own back, but it is easier to do that when you know a trusted sister has your back too!
Q. What do you hope readers will take away from your chapter in Stories of the Goddess?
A. I hope that they will see that when they chop off parts of themselves to be “good” or “acceptable”, they are actually denying their own inner goddess. And when they deny her, they are actually taking something precious away from themselves and their children.
When you are willing to be all of you and bring whatever energy is required, even the intense or uncomfortable parts, you become a powerful creator in your own life, you are actually more present with your kids, and you truly invite your children to be their whole and magnificent selves.
Q. How do you feel about the overall experience of being a part of the Stories of the Goddess book project and working with Radhaa Publishing House?
A. It has truly been a gift to be part of this project. It has invited me to step up as a writer and challenged me to be willing to bring my message out into the world. Radhaa and her team have been supportive every step of the way. I’m so grateful for their commitment and expertise, so this amazing book can get out and become a beacon and a catalyst for change.
Q. What advice do you have for other authors looking to collaborate with a publishing house and get their work published?
A. Before I signed on to the project I looked around at quite a few collaborative book programs through other publishers. It was clear that Radhaa Publishing does an exceptional job successfully promoting their books and the authors who work with them. If you have a big message or purpose, if you have wisdom and experience to share, and if you have always desired to become a published author but didn’t know how to go forward successfully, I would highly recommend working with Radhaa.
Q. What are your specific offerings and how can people find you?
A. I work with clients from conception, through pregnancy, birth and beyond to experience more ease and joy in every step of their motherhood journey. Sessions can be in-person or online, including coaching, energy clearing, and techniques to include the client’s body and baby. I also work with spouses and partners on how to support their partner while still taking care of themselves.
