FAVORITE CRYSTALS TO WORK WITH?
Amethyst // Malachite // Pyrite
Amethyst // I use Amethyst to balance the mind, body, spirit and receive with ease. This stone invites one into the place where one can channel the guidance and love from our highest self and our guides. I call this stone, the grandmother stone. Amethyst holds the loving vibration of a kind grandmother telling a story before bedtime. Soothing.
Malachite // The travelers stone- Malachite is one that is always with me as I travel the west on WYLDER Journeys. In addition, it brings me visions of the landscape where the forest meets the river - the place where life meets life force.
Pyrite // A Goddesspreneur knows her abundance. This glittering stone holds the beauty of the Rainforest and the textures of nature’s unique organization. A marvel to look at, this stone grounds one into the glistening reality that is this Earthly existence. Pyrite reminds one that living in the physical plane is a pleasure.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR DAILY RITUALS TO KEEP YOU FLOWING WITH GRACE?
Yoga is the practice where I can truly let it all go. No matter what is going on in the world around or within me, getting on my mat is the time to open up to the reality of that which is. Every time I go to my mat, the continued lesson is that ‘All is simply love’. The breath continues to take us back to that space of love and the asana gives the body awareness to move with this intention. No matter how many times I learn this lesson, the daily yoga inspires me to act from a calm and focused place in my business and life.
HOW HAS EMBARKING ON THE PROBIOTIC COFFEE BUSINESS CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
The honest truth is that shifting my career from Garden Designer to Coffee & Health Connoisseur was the most trust I’ve ever put into the universe. I loved designing gardens and I was successful, but I also knew that a highly credible team who were ready to make WYLDER a success surrounded me. I could see how WYLDER was going to fulfill my deep desire and purpose of connecting humans and nature through an Amazon Rainforest give-back and the ethical sourcing of our ingredients. I had to surrender into WYLDER and let go of all of my ideas of what I thought I knew to be my destiny.
This deep trust stemmed fruitful on many levels. My lesson in the success of WYLDER has been to get out of my own way and let that which wants to come through me be a reality. The deepest version of this lesson is to simply enjoy all the synchronicities that occur when we are in flow. Trusting that deep inner knowing on big things like career and survival has been incredibly empowering and rewarding.
WHY IS CONSCIOUS ENTREPRENEURSHIP PIVOTAL IN TODAY’S TIME?
Every action we take in life forms our reality. These actions ripple outwards into the whole world. If we truly desire to live in a beautiful world of kindness, nature, and love for our community and ourselves, then we must focus that intention into the things we create. Because of this, it is pivotal to take action towards the world envision. We do this by making conscious choices of how we do business in the world.
WHAT DOES BEING A GODDESS MEAN TO YOU?
Being a goddess is a celebration. The goddess celebrates life in all of its stages of light and dark. The goddess celebrates the goddess in others.
HOW DO YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE AS A SOVEREIGN AQUARIAN WOMAN DURING THIS POWERFUL TIME?
I find my sovereignty through self-care. The more loving I am to myself through nourishing foods, time in nature, and yoga, the more unstoppable I am. The more vulnerably I show up with a childlike curiosity, the more powerful I feel and am able to help others feel. I know that the healthier I am within, the more loving and helpful I am to the world. Sometimes this means choosing the challenging over the easy, but believe me- it’s worth it!
