Strong Spirit Woman ~ A Total Life Makeover To Reveal Your True Greatness

Strong Spirit Woman is designed to help both women and men live a more whole-ly aligned and authentic life for greater health and life satisfaction.

Strong Spirit Woman is especially devoted to helping women ~ both young and old ~ heal from old wounds and alien belief systems that have taken them off course from the traditional ways in which women lived more meaningful, healthful, and joy-filled lives.

I believe that as women, we often overlook our true source of power, strength, and personal fulfillment while chasing a nebulous identity that runs counter to our natural wiring.

A growing number of women are on anti-depressants, or are riddled with anxiety, insomnia, digestive issues, and/or hormonal imbalances.  The rise in 'feminism' has not been found to have helped women experience greater joy, meaning, or health.  In fact, the opposite may be true.(1),(2) 

Strong Spirit Woman encourages women to strengthen their body and mind and harmonize their inner and outer lives.  

In order to uplift others, and restore healthy relating between men and women, we must first uplift ourselves.

Healing is an integral process that involves unraveling what is not authentic,  so the true light within can shine.  The right food, fitness  and lifestyle habits will help strengthen our body, but we need to heal our fractured mind and spirit as well.

When we are living harmonious to our true nature ~ with care, integrity, and mindfulness in all we do ~ we will experience greater joy, freedom, and more vibrant health.

Strong Spirit Woman also believes that the divinely feminine and traditional roles as the chef, nurse/doctor, teacher, and nurturer of the household are a sacred, valuable, and fulfilling form of expression that some women may be missing when relegating these important functions to outsiders.

Unfortunately, during the previous decades when women's lib was on the rise, many women with traditional values began to be the target of much scorn and conflict from women who opted to seek professional careers rather than be 'stuck home with the children.'  

The role of the stay-at-home-mom was being usurped by institutional pressures, subliminal indoctrination, and economic demands.  

Women developed erroneous beliefs that maintaining a safe, welcoming home and raising children was somehow less valued, especially when compared to going to a university to obtain a degree, and start a career. 

As a result, we have lost our connection to the most sacred expression of our Divine Feminine power, and we along with our children, families, communities, and extended tribes have suffered the consequences. 


Tell Me More About What I will find on the Strong Spirit Woman Website

Strong Spirit Woman synthesizes the wisdom, values and traditional diet and lifestyle practices  of our ancestors with modern fitness training, intuitive & holistic health coaching,  and domestic / home-arts designed to help anyone ~ male or female ~ who is earnestly ready to focus on becoming more self-reliant, self-confident, and realize their full and divine potential.  

I am especially passionate about coaching women (both young and old) to experience better mental, physical, and emotional health and spiritual alignment.

As a holistic health practitioner, and one who has worked to transform my own life, I have spent years learning what it takes to manifest our dreams, and realize our ideal visions for ourselves, and our lives.

What each of us needs to most focus on will vary depending on our life experiences and training, however in order to become a truly sovereign being, there are certain steps that are involved to free ourselves from limiting and alien belief systems that hold us back, and old emotional wounds that keep us stuck.  

We also must learn to eat right and take care of both our physical health, and our home spaces.

I have developed effective strategies to help people clear obstacles to living a more 'illumined' life ~ a life that is best aligned with who you are, your gifts, desires, temperament, vision, and sense of purpose. 

I especially hope to inspire younger women to return to the sacred traditions of raising a family, and the domestic arts as a path to greater meaning, purpose, and inner contentment.

Strong Spirit Woman is about invoking a Spirit of Strength, Fortitude & Right Alignment as a means of elevating the quality of our lives, and the quality of our relationships ~ with our partners, children, parents, and extended family & tribe.

Strong Spirit Woman also inspires having faith in the divine to guide us, and support our choices, even if they run counter to current trends.  We can call upon the archetypal  deities to help us emulate or manifest various skills or character traits they represent ~ such as the Gods/Goddesses of hearth and home, health, courage and strength, personal empowerment, compassion and appropriate boundaries ~ to become an ever-better version of our own selves.

I have an intimate understanding of the profound  pain we can experience when we deny expression of our True Nature.   

My hope is to inspire all  women, to not only be strong, healthy, and fit, but to live virtuous, meaningful lives.  

I especially hope to help the younger generation  avoid my mistakes, while offering access to the tools, support, wisdom and guidance  needed to cultivate true inner and outer strength.  

This includes adopting healthy lifestyles, prioritizing the time to prepare healthy and nourishing meals, getting physically fit, taking care of one's personal environments, healing old emotional wounds, and harmonizing all aspects of one's life.  

Women of all ages, especially the younger generations will need to adopt a spirit of willingness and dedication to do what is necessary to become sovereign, including radical self-reflection  and exploration of all beliefs and attachments.

It is only by doing so that one can become truly free, and hopefully make choices that best align with one's authentic Self.  In this way, living with regrets and remorse later in life can hopefully be avoided.

Strong Spirit Woman emphasizes holistic lifestyles, and the domestic home-arts as a path to joy and a meaningful, satisfying life.

When we have a sense of purpose, we feel fulfilled.  Our health improves too.  

Prior to the propaganda campaign to stigmatize being a stay-at-home mother, women took great pride and joy in their equally important support roles to not just surviving, but thriving and raising a healthy family.

Men and women have complementary, yet different inherent strengths.  Neither is more valuable; both are equally important.  Both contribute to the process of creating, nurturing, protecting and sustaining life.  

Why be something you are not?

The intention for the Strong Spirit Woman website is to first and foremost teach people to trust their true nature, whether with respect to choosing what to eat, or while crafting a vision for one's life.  In this regard, the site is welcoming to all ~ men and women alike ~ who are seeking to be uplifted and realize their full and divine potential.

Secondly, I hope to reignite a reverence for the domestic arts, including our role as stewards ~ of our Selves, families, homes, communities, extended tribes, and the Earth.  I consider cleaning, organizing, and setting up a beautiful home sanctuary to be a sacred, divinely feminine expression, which some men equally enjoy.

I also hope to awaken a sense of the sacred through our daily practices ~ whether while cleaning our homes, fixing a nutritious meal, guiding our children, or caring for our parents ~ and while marking the passing of the seasons and traditional holidays.

And finally, Strong Spirit Woman is my way of helping women fully realize their own unique expression of femininity, within the greater context of understanding the  full embodiment of the Divine Feminine expression

I further hope that in so doing, relationships between men and women can improve.  

Not too many decades ago, men and women equally strived to meet their ideal partner once they became legal adults.  The urge to raise a family is part of our evolutionary development as a species.  We are still, by and large, hard-wired to these desires.  

While I realize not every person will fit this mold, it is my goal to be among those who are encouraging the choice to be once again considered a normal and healthy choice, and to embrace the domestic arts as an honorable and sacred path to personal fulfillment and self-realization.

Even those in 'unconventional' pairing can still relate to the hard-wired drive within to create a comfortable home, and feel welcomed and supported among their own family, loved ones, and extended tribe.  It's natural to seek fellowship.

A Strong Spirit  Woman will recognize her true nature is sacred, and to be revered.  

When you break free of the cultural teachings and impressions that dictate what a woman 'should' be, do, have, or look like, and allow your most primal and true heart-felt desires to be illumined, it can be the most enlightening and empowering act you take in your entire life.

The most satisfied and happy women I have ever met are those who are most aligned with the Truth of Who They Really ARE.  They are an exalted expression of what a Strong Spirit Woman exemplifies.  More often then not, they are wives and moms.

A Strong Spirit Woman is true to her self, and does not try to be like someone or something she is not.  She expresses her most authentic, divinely designed version of herself ~ with all her imperfections, vulnerabilities and challenges ~ doing everyday activities from the right place of alignment.
