I love him because…

He’s on my mind when I am in the presence of beauty and all living things.

Today is April 11th, the Full Moon is a little over a week away. I am seeing signs of his presence everywhere I go and even in my dreams. It was so real, so passionate, and so magical. I feel him so close, yet so far. Oh how much I miss him, his energy, his divine masculine existence that no other man I know has and no other man can compare. Even though we are not together in the physical, I feel it deep down in my heart that we are meant to be together and will be together when GOD has decided so. There was a reason for our separation. We each have to part ways so that we can heal, learn, and grow within ourselves.

I had a little bit of an emotional start to my day this morning and a conversation with a very dear and wise Goddess adviser in my life uplifted me, gave me hope and strength, and she reminded me of this beautiful love poem written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning to her husband, Robert Browning during the Victorian Era in which I have by my bedside table. The verses in bold are of significance to he and I.

I Love You

I love you not only for what you are
but for what I am when I’m with you.

I love you not only for what you have
made of yourself but what you are making
of me;

I love you for putting your hand into my
heaped up heart and passing over all the 
foolish weak things you can’t help dimly
seeing there, and drawing out in the light 
all the beautiful belongings that no one 
else had looked quite far enough to find;

I love you because you are helping me to
make of the lumber of my life not a tavern
but a temple,
out of the work of my every day
life not a reproach but a song.

I love you because you have done more than
any creed could have done to make me good
and more than any fate could have done to
make me happy;

You have done it without a touch, without 
a word, without a sigh;

You have done it by being yourself.
Perhaps that is what being a friend means,
after all.

And he has done it without much effort and by simply being him.

This is more than just a friendship. It is a spiritual bond, a deep soul-connection, a pure and eternal sacred love that no other can ever replace. I love him because he brings out the Goddess in me, the Goddess that I was meant to be. I love him because he is my divine masculine match. And I love him because he is LOVE in a man.

Thanks to my long time fan and photographer Charles Martin for always capturing the best of my Fashion creations and for allowing my vulnerable side to reveal through your lenses.




A Simple Irish Prayer

It is not easy being a highly sensitive and intuitive being. I absorb everyone’s emotions and physical pain that I encounter, both good and bad. Lately, it seems the whole world around me is suffering from some form of illness, … Continue reading

40 Ways to feel more feminine.

You have read my previous post on Finding Strength in Softness featuring a modern day goddess who has awakened her feminine power through her journey with me the past several of years. And lately, I have received many requests from busy-successful modern day women asking me to share my tips and wisdom on how they can bring back their feminine energy so they can feel like a woman again. Here they are below…

1. Sleep Au Naturale (my first and foremost favorite feminine experience). If not nude, then, in lovely luxurious lingerie.
2. Let your hair down – as often as possible – soft, flowing, feminine.
3. Wear make-up to enhance your beautiful features, not hide them.
4. Wear feminine sexy undergarments – always. I love a touch of lace in mine.
5. Wear dresses – and…. devoid of panties or go braless when so inspired.
6. Wear high heels when you need a boost of confidence and sex appeal.
7. Flirt – in the mirror – smile, entice, use the eyes to beckon.
8. Giggle and laugh to yourself or at yourself.
9. Pink.  Yes, wear more pink, clothing, accessories, or lipstick.

10. Cook, clean, iron, sew, or do laundry. Be a domesticated goddess one day a week. It is very therapeutic, especially with classical or opera music playing while you do those activities.
11. Sparkle – Add sparkles to your eyes, on your skin, sprinkled them on your baked goods, or wear fashion with touches of sparkles.
12. Wear flowers in your hair – with or without reason.
13. When with a gentle-man, demonstrate your feminine grace by taking small steps – as though you were on the fashion runway. Yes, he is to open the door for you, walk closest to the street, pay your way (romantic or not).  Encourage his chivalry and masculinity. He will appreciate you for bringing out his inner titan.
14. Flirt with a stranger by extending a coy smile, gaze, a look.  No need to speak just be tempting and mysteriously approachable.
15. Wear silk to bed if you must wear something or a sheer cotton sheath that allows your body to breathe and feel free.


16. Dance – Dance daily with or without an audience. Be your own audience in the mirror.
17. Create a painting or a drawing from your feminine heart center.
18. Go shopping in person and allow your sense of touch to feel awakened. Caress the fabrics and materials with your hands.
19. Walk daily and leisurely in nature. Be present to your surroundings along the way. Pick flowers, watch the birds, chase the butterflies, or listen to the wind softly singing in your ears.
20. Spend time with masculine men (especially the ones with dogs as pets…not cats… Trust me on this!)
21. Slow down, relax, breathe…. carry yourself with grace and ease when you feel your masculine energy is taking over.
22. Speak softly choosing loving and positive words.  (Completely avoid profanity as it negates femininity).
23. Nurture your over-all Well Being.  Eat nutritionally, exercise, stretch, pamper yourself with therapeutic massages and hot sultry relaxing bubble baths as often as possible.
24. Be loving, be open, be approachable. Don’t judge anyone until you have a chance to get to know them personally. 
25. Grow a little garden. When your seeds bloom in full, so will you. 
26. Sing with your heart and soul as though the world would be healed by the very sound of your voice even when noone is listening.
27. Play dress up from your toes to your nose – Enjoy being a feminine girl’s girl. Dress up for your lover and have fun.
28. Be vulnerable – open your heart to receiving love and sharing love.


29. Gravitate to confident women who embrace femininity as their gift and their strength and who will reflect your beauty and celebrate your light.
30. Play with Children and Animals. Share your love and light, your touch, your resonance with them. They are pure and honest and you can be yourself with them. 
31. Treat your skin to luscious creams and natural erotic scents. I make my own since I cannot seem to find what I like. 
32. Create your feminine space by candle light and natural scented oils nightly.
33. High Tea – Pour Yourself a lovely cup of herbal tea and slowly savor each sip from a delicate china cup (with a little dark chocolate).
34. Be the definition of a true Feminine Woman – show compassion, kindness, forgiveness, sensitivity, gratitude and patience always, and yes even to those who have not been good to you.
35. Take a Soul Retreat by yourself for reflection, expansion and ascension of your brilliant Feminine Nature.
36. Practice yoga and meditation regularly.
37. Go for a healing Reiki session once a month. I have a Goddess whose energy I love and I see her when my brain power has been on overdrive.
38. Give thanks. I rarely go a day without sharing and expressing my Gratitude through writing in my journal.
39. Pray. Did you know that prayers can heal wounds if you believe it to be so? I finally have gotten over a heart-break through many nights and days of prayers and meditation. God does love us, even when we are not perfect.
40. Lastly, touch yourself daily. Give your body and soul the love it craves. How can anyone love you the way you want to be loved if you don’t know what that love really feels like?

Happy Women’s History month!
I hope you are already doing some of the things from my list above. If not, I invite you to try it for the rest of the month and keep me posted on what surprises you experienced. Let’s embrace femininity and sensuality as our power and our BRILLIANCE and share it with the world around us!
Allow The Goddess within you to be apparent everywhere you are and everything that you do.
With Love Always  * *
