The Audacity of Self Love
This month I'm excited to share with you a new book that has just emerged entitled 'The Audacity of Self Love - Voyage of the Self Made Woman". To anyone that's ever taken one of my workshops or read The Little Inspiration Book or the seen the newly published card pack the 68 Secrets of an Illuminated Artist, they will know how dear this topic - loving oneself - is to my heart is and how important it is for all people, and artists in particular, to specialize in self love and self care.
When I saw Christina Fior's Post on my Facebook newsfeed, I emailed her immediately and shared that I would love to mention her book her on this blog and how much it meant to be that she wrote it on this topic.
Without further ado, this book is about the guts it takes to be a Self-Made Woman. It takes audacity to bring our feminine genius forward in a world that has been set up for us to be ‘long suffering’ rather than self empowered.
The Audacity of Self Love --Voyage of the Self Made Woman speaks to the universal woman’s ‘heroic journey’ as she cuts through the layers of ‘love deprivation’ and deepens her sources of Self-Love.
This book provide a roadmap for unleashing our feminine genius and recapturing the original brilliance encoded within our souls. This time in history calls us to become feminine ‘change agents’ as we champion a bigger ‘idea’ for our lives, and co-create a new world of enlightened living.
It’s time to literally ‘liberate the genie from the bottle’ within us, and grant our deepest desires.
