What is a wild woman, you ask?
What does it mean to be a wild woman and why would I want to be one?
More and more I’m noticing a desire that is burning within women as a collective to be fully expressed in their authentic nature. Women are wanting to be seen, heard and felt as the inherently beautiful creatures that they are.
I'm doing the "holidays" differently this year, and decided to have a "staycation" this week, rather engaging in the normal seasonal hustle and bustle.
I spent the majority of the week snuggled at home with my loved ones, watching entertaining movies and documentaries, visioning out new projects, drinking tea, and eating yummy food - while also taking the week (mostly) off from working.
One of my biggest passions in life is herbalism and working with plants in various ways.
For the last several years, I've made a hobby out of learning how to use plants as medicine, how to identify edible and medicinal plants out in nature, and how to make my own homemade herbal remedies out of them.
I don't know about you, but one of my favorite parts of the day are those moments after I shower when I get to take all the time I desire to adorn myself in clothing, jewelry, some natural makeup, and whatever else feels good on my body for the day.
You might be thinking, "Well, that's not very wild. Clothing, jewelry, and makeup? I thought this was about being NATURAL."
Do you ever have that feeling like you are constantly striving to meet an ideal for yourself and the journey toward that ideal never seems to end?
I think we all fall prey to the quest for perfection sometimes, especially living in a society where the idea of the "perfect body", for example, is a woman's figure is photoshopped to be ridiculously skinny, blemish free, and perfectly symmetrical.
As I entered the bathroom and happened to glance down at my exposed legs as I happened to be half naked at the moment, I noticed my furry legs looking back up at me.
I stood there for a moment, as I was reminded of what an controversial topic body hair on women can be, as well as a topic that women often have an internal conflict over.
"Working with Ali has been one of the best decisions I've made for my femininity and search for my own truth. She gave me real resources and practices to help me connect to my Divine feminine, to truly find direction, and to love and respect who I was created to be. I have seen amazing growth since working with Ali and can't wait to see what the future holds."
