So you want to unleash your inner wild woman?

While growing up, we women never attend a class on how to love ourselves or how to shine like the magnificent f*ckin’ queens that we are.

That is why it is up to us to help one another become the beautiful goddess that we were all born to be.

Because regardless of where you are in your life right now—you have magnificence breathing and pulsing inside of you, just waiting for the moment when you’ll decide to let it loose upon the world.

It’s not easy to awaken— it’s not a one step process.

If anything, it’s more like the cha-cha—a few step forward and then a few steps back—but progress none the less.

I have received numerous inquiries, asking about my personal reading list from women all over this beautiful planet who are searching for more.

The thing is that we are all unique, so what helped achieve my own higher level of awareness may not do the same for you.

That is a unique formula that you will have to experiment with, in order to find what works for you.

That being said, there are some amazing pieces of literature which can help inspire even the drowsiest of goddesses that sleep within us.

Above all, have faith in yourselves, and never doubt what your intuition is directing you towards.

The most sacred and beautiful aspect of a woman is her heart—so follow it, my beautiful wild woman, and see how amazing life can be when you let yourself bloom as only you can.

Blessings and love to each one of you, on your journey to become a wild woman.

Together we can change the world.

Great list! I would add “Ines of my Soul” by Isabel Allende. It recounts the astonishing life of a daring Spanish conquistadora who helped build the nation of Chile.
