Sovereignty: my ability to consciously choose to attract and reflect; Individuality, Health, Wealth, Happiness, Pleasure, Freedom, Love. … more
For me, sovereignty is about knowing who I am and what I truly am as an individual; knowing my unique role, contribution, and responsibility to my divine mission and humanity, and masterfully using my body and mind as vehicles to deliver those gifts. Sovereignty is truly me being a responsible creative force and conduit between spirit and matter for the extension of the good, the holy and beautiful. It’s my choice to teach love and offer a pathway for others to know themselves as Love.
“Sovereignty is profound yet illusive concept;
it is natural state of being inherent to the feminine.”
When I was child, I didn’t know how to recognize my own power; my right to steer the direction of my life. My life was in chaos and I learned how to survive. At the age of 17, I left foster care. I was afraid to take control of my life completely. Often, I handed my power over to another, seeking safety and security. I didn’t do this consciously; it was a subtle and hidden dynamic. My family’s dysfunction developed in me codependency. In the shadow of dependency, I often felt like I had to go along to get along; to be safe and secure.
I didn’t fully know my own value and worth, so I unconsciously was seeking someone else to assign it for me, especially the unconscious masculine energy, whether within a woman or a man. In doing this, I served to meet their needs and wants as a way of getting my own needs met.
I had relinquished my personal power within relationships, in my career, in life, in general. Eventually my suffering turned into a call from the Source within me to grow, expand and reclaim my Sovereign- Self; to fully awaken my Feminine energy seeking greater inspiration and meaning. This increased my receptivity to intuitive guidance so my more rational side (masculine energy) could then externally act upon it. Because I lacked confidence in the external world, I first needed to awaken courage to act upon my convictions before I could empower my inner masculine to act.
When I answered the call of Source to grow, and expand, I reawakened my connection to the Divine and honored myself accordingly by creating harmony and balance of the sacred feminine & masculine through the embracing of alchemical teachings and practices, which foster my upward spiral of wholeness and reconnection to my Sovereign Self.
This dynamic occurred both internally & externally in my relationships.
When I made this commitment to embark on a path of spiritual growth; seeing every experience as a lesson, I made the transition from the child who blames others and feels sorry for herself while unwittingly hurting others- into a conscious woman. I learned to examine my thoughts and actions, so they become wise and humble through self-reflection and the seeking of a higher truth.
When I learned to focus on the Divine (an eternal source of love) and to see myself as reflection of the Divine by delighting in my archetypal Gods & Goddesses, I became filled and inspired with love.
This fuels me to create situations that reflect Love. Then it is possible for me to live Heaven on Earth in every aspect of my life, as I am the embodiment of love, so I attract a reflection of it in every moment.

Dysfunctional aspects of patriarchy that we have experienced in more private, personal moments are now being openly exposed on the national stage.
People are feeling triggered, venting and processing.
Woman and men around the world are getting in touch with feelings they may have locked down years ago, feeling that they didn’t have a safe place to speak in the past are now – surfacing to be addressed, publicly and privately around the world.
By the age of 15 I understood what it felt like to be repeatedly and violently violated mentally, emotionally and physically, to not feel safe enough to speak about my experiences and to be abandoned by my family, religion and the justice system. And then how that “not feeling safe or secure” drove my empty relationship cycles of rejection, victim/villain, blame/shame, right/wrong, good and bad – and when I looked out into the world what I saw reflected was much of the same. Behind my brave face I was hiding accelerated swings of successes and failure, I felt defeated, confused, depressed, and full of anxiety and terror all the time.
My story is like many other women in the world.
By the age of 21 I had left organized religion, had no faith in our justice system and political platforms and began my deep dive into the – spiritual roots of my human experience. In doing this I learned I needed to grow, to take personal responsibility for my perspective of what had and was happening within me and around me in the world.
I decided my life was a call to rise, expand and transform my story and personal legacy and in doing so extend the good, the holy and the beautiful to the world, in turn transforming our collective legacy.
This became my passion, purpose and intention: to know myself as Sovereign Goddess of my own Universe, Source Reliant, Interdependent and Free! And to be the walking permission (needed now more than ever) for each woman to do the work necessary to set her soul free from the weight and baggage of her personal identity, her story, her cherished beliefs and opinions; to unchain herself from all that keeps her bound to limitations within her ego mind and within the society she finds herself contained and to be a Sovereign Goddess of her world, uplifting and Inspiring a New World collective!
