I have spent a lot of time walking with some incredible souls on their journeys, each of whom imparts spiritual awe and knowledge onto me. However, there is one breed of woman that consistently shows up in my office, one whom I feel most connected to.

She is the badass.

Today starts a three part series on my speciality, the BADASS WOMAN.

Carl Jung calls them archetypes, the character which most fits your soul, your presence, your path and your baggage. Perhaps equivalent to Jung’s “ANIMUS” – masculine features in the feminine body or the “REBEL” or “EXPLORER.”

You may find yourself drawn to action and independence.

You most likely work in an industry or career where you are never static, always in movement, highly social, yet supplies frequent novelty and alternative schedules from the regular 9-5.

You thrive on intensity and though you enjoy downtime, may not often sleep well.

FOMO is your middle name.

Most likely you work in the service industry or on the night shift.

You live an alternative lifestyle that many people in your life may not understand or appreciate.

The face you show to most is strength and collectedness.

You are independent and strong with ease.

You may move frequently or feel the need to stay very active in your daily life.

You numb out emotionally and physically. Sometimes you don’t even know what you are feeling.

Underneath your very strong shell, you have an enormous heart that bursts with love. You want to share it with the world. Yet, at times your heart becomes barricaded and you cannot share your love due to fear or anger.

You want to connect at a level of depth and vulnerability that you are not always certain others are capable of. Trust can be very difficult for you.

AND YOU KNOW NOW THAT YOU ARE READY.  You are READY to DO THE WORK.

You want something more than just a tough facade and escape.

You want to TRUST, to CONNECT, to FEEL, and to FEEL GOOD – FOR YOU!

I know you. I get you. I commit fully to walk with you, bravely, towards your highest self. Like many before you, all you have to do is REACH OUT, and I will join you.

To journeying with your badass soul,
