"“I wear my soul on my sleeves."
My story is a 60-year crash course through all human emotions in one little lifetime; feeling and understanding them fast and furiously.
I took on different personas in different countries, diving fully into successes and failures to come back up to emotional and spiritual highs of magic and awareness. Climbing up a deep, dark, and hilarious spiral, my journey floated in and out of doing and understanding.
I was a good girl and a rebel, a Catholic and an Atheist, a mother and a warrior, a priestess and a punk, a martyr and a goddess, a boss and a waitress, rich and poor, hilariously happy and terribly sad.
My spiritual explorations weaved itself through decades and entailed breath work, play therapy, psychodrama, guided imagery, symbolic modeling, active imagination, movement therapy, dream work, role playing, Gestalt therapy, sand tray, journal therapy, archetypal psychology and regression therapy, Numerology, Astrology, Tarot readings, Afro Haitian dancing, and shamanic journeys with Native American leaders.
Phase 1: the literature, philosophy and writing world.
My MA in literature and sociology and my traditionally published self help book, “Free Theater” opened the doors into journalism, which I passionately pursued for 5 years in Germany and England.
Phase 2: 10 entrepreneurial years in Portugal.
It included a construction company, an art gallery, organic restaurant and a clinic for natural treatments.
Phase 3: Boho mom explorations.
A single mom with son Santa Fe, NM, living the enchanted life and studying art therapy. I also lost my stock market investment in day trading, which brought me, broke, to Los Angeles.
Phase 4: Jobs and a new business
I fought back out of the slump with various jobs, writing art and design stories for German Vogue in the early 2000’s and opening my eco friendly company Eco and the Princess in 2006.
Producing events for a busy restaurant I planned and set into scene about 1000 events in 15 years also coaching wedding couples and families in their wedding planning process.
I had to see, feel and taste a crazy bunch of experiences before I could let go of my limiting beliefs: I was hanging on to childhood blame, shame and guilt. Hitting 60 and the “old-shaming” of Ageism was like a bucket of cold water; wake up!! Be who you truly are; now or never.
I had to see, feel, and taste this crazy bunch of experiences before I felt ready to share my discoveries and to intuitively understand and inspire others. There’s a huge difference in having felt and just having theorized about things.
Phase 5; Fashion and Words, the fascinating world of styling from the insight out
My book “Outfits Talk”, which will be published in November, will tell you my life through the stories of my outfits.
