Hey all you fabulous people,
I am stepping out into the social media arena for the first time. Officially, this is a pre post post because my official start date is to be February 1st for reasons that will be revealed then..
However, right now Elle's and my new book pre-order campaign starts today and I thought you would want a heads up....
You may be asking, didn't she already just write a book called Aphrodite something? Or didn't she break her arm in two places last year??
Yes. It's annoying to know that I have myself to blame for not having any more excuses to procrastinate.
All I can say is Elle, Brad, and the rest of my village, rock.
Never underestimate your support networks.
Here is my pitch:
Each of us defines our lives through our internal narratives.
Through writing Aphrodite Emerges I shared my story with the world in hopes of offering a tried way, a traveled path as it were, to finding peace with the self.
I gained energy from finding that lost lovely voice of my feminine by bringing to consciousness why she was hidden in the first place, and then intently listening to her.
Looking at her in this mirror inspired me to act.
Now, Elle Luna, author of The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion, and I have created a practical hands-on guide to show you how to uncover and understand your own stories in order to live a more conscious, confident, and unapologetic life. Published by Workman publishing we are unabashedly ecstatic to show it off to you:
YOUR STORY IS YOUR POWER
Free your feminine voice
The essence of what can be gleaned from this process is clarity about one’s dreams and how they relate to your self, life purpose, and your participation in the larger community of women.
Here is the link to the pre-order campaign if you want to get a head-start on this process and get the book.
Included is a journal for you that Elle designed to help you on the journey!
"I love that I play all of these strong women. But they're not just strong - they're women who have a really deep vulnerability and need to go through a journey in order to harness their power." - Idina Menzel
This quote encapsulates what I think the challenge is: how to go on that journey to be able to truly harness your power, especially your feminine power. For it comes from a very sense of vulnerability.

This is that "tend and befriend" tendency in women that is so wonderful and extraordinary. When under stress they collect together and make that village that we all need to thrive.
Relational intelligence is the key!
Something extraordinary at LAX today... (writing this on the plane). I was at the gate, waiting to get on my plane to Portland. Flights to two different cities ...were boarding on either side of the Portland fight. A toddler who looked to be eighteen or so months old was having a total meltdown, running between the seats, kicking and screaming, then lying on the ground, refusing to board the plane (which was not going to Portland). His young mom, who was clearly pregnant and traveling alone with her son, became completely overwhelmed... she couldn't pick him up because he was so upset, he kept running away from her, then lying down on the ground, kicking and screaming again. The mother finally sat down on the floor and put her head in her hands, with her kid next to her still having a meltdown, and started crying. Then, this gorgeous thing (I'm crying just writing this)... the women in the terminal, there must have been six or seven of us, not women who knew each other, approached and surrounded her and the little boy and we knelt down and formed a circle around them. I sang "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" to the little boy... one woman had an orange that she peeled, one woman had a little toy in her bag that she let the toddler play with, another woman gave the mom a bottle of water. Someone else helped the mom get the kid's sippy cup out of her bag and give it to him. It was so gorgeous, there was no discussion and no one knew anyone else, but we were able to calm them both down, and she got her child on the plane. Only women approached. After they went through the door we all went back to our separate seats and didn't talk about it... we were strangers, gathering to solve something. It occurred to me that a circle of women, with a mission, can save the world. I will never forget that moment.
