What is a Goddess?

When I started the journey toward reclaiming my inner goddess several years ago, I always knew that one day I would share her power with everyone around me and inspire women of all ages from around the globe to embrace their inner goddess and use her magical feminine powers to do good for herself and others.  That vision became reality when my lifestyle boutique and goddess sanctuary was born on November 1, 2014.  I wanted it to be a safe and luxurious space where the modern day woman could experience a soothing, heavenly, inspirational, awakening of all her senses, and a magical world of feminine pleasures. And I believe we are accomplishing that goal.

As a busy executive goddess, I often feel that my inner Titan takes over.  So the sanctuary is my space and creative playhouse to release, recharge, and rejuvenate my feminine soul. The sanctuary is an intimate, poetic retreat for women of all ages, especially for the busy professional woman like myself to come let go, relax, let down her hair, put on some make-up, and celebrate the joy of being a woman and experience the awakening of her feminine energy from within. It’s very liberating I tell you.

One question I often get asked by our guests is, “What is a Goddess?” I am sure there are many definitions of a goddess out there, but read below for my definition.

A goddess is: a sensuous and passionate symbol of life who is brilliant and wholesome, confident and intelligent, feminine and charming, creative and self-expressed, kind and loving, honest and nurturing, earthy and spiritual, has self-respect and is self-aware, full of wisdom and inner strength, applies an attitude of excellence in everything she does and beautiful inside and out. Most importantly, she arouses beauty, pleasure, and spreads light to those around her. Lastly, she is respected and adored by many, including children, animals, and nature. She is one of a kind, a woman who lives life with only truth and love and who shares her heart freely without any emotional constraints.

I hope that was not too long for you. Are you a goddess? Did I just describe you? If so, I am so glad. I believe that every woman has an inner goddess that is waiting to be awakened. And I want to be the one to assist with that. 🙂

Goddess Diet for Youthful Looking Skin

Do you want to know the secret to maintaining youthful and healthy looking skin and keeping your inner Goddess or Titan energized? To continue my health and wellness journey, and in keeping my heart chakra balanced, I am having fruits and vegetables at every single meal and drinking lots of herbal teas and water as part of my daily diet.  In addition to that, I don’t even crave sweets, coffee, carbs, or wine at all.

I have been on this wellness diet since December 27th, and I can tell you, not only does it make a difference in the way I feel, but also in how my skin looks and feels: amazing. Make-up is now a plus (if I feel like it), but not a must…well, at least for the past 3 weeks 🙂 See my bare face in the photo below.

I am blessed to be in Mexico right now and missing Jonas back at home in the Washington, DC area. But even while on this Goddess Holiday and Design Inspiration Retreat, I have been hiking at least five miles a day as well as doing yoga and lifting weights. My breakfast is mostly plain yogurt, honey, chia seeds, and mixed fruits, and lunch and dinner are usually salads or fish tacos made from the freshest ingredients.

I took the photos below to share with you for inspiration in case you want to eat out less and start preparing your foods at home. Make sure to keep your food colorful and made with natural ingredients.  Oh, and did I tell you I also lost 6 pounds from it too? 🙂

The La Casa Que Canta kitchen staff will make any salad for me as long as they have the vegetables and seeds.

My skin, make-up free, just a little eyeliner that is all. 😊
