Meet the Warriors behind our new campaign. This fall, we called on real-life leaders who aren’t afraid to go within to let their light out. From the symbolic pieces they wear to the powerful stories they tell, see why these spiritual trailblazers are redefining what it means to be a warrior.

______

Tell us who you are in a few words:

I am an author, wellness facilitator, Doula, yogi. I am a FORCE, I am a Spiritual Warrior.

What does being a spiritual warrior mean to you?

Being a spiritual warrior means being resilient despite the circumstances. Sometimes, being a spiritual warrior, you have to go against the grain, you won’t always be liked or approved of…but you are at peace because you are walking on your destined path and you are living in your truth. Being a spiritual warrior means trusting the forces that guide you.

Tell us a little about each of your picks for your curated boutique. What inspired your choices? What do you love about each one?

Each of these pictures represents what I am about and hold deep significance. What my spirit is called to inspired my choices. I love that each piece is completely unique, they are delicate and intricate, but together they weave a story.

How are these symbols connected to your life’s story?

These symbols are connected to my life’s story on a Spiritual level. The elephant is my primary spirit animal. The essence of the elephant has been with me for decades. I am a creator. The ankh represents the masculine & feminine energies within me, as well as outside of me & with the balance of the two, life occurs.

The Hamsa (Hand of Fatima), as well as the Evil Eye, has been around me for years. It is a reminder that I am protected as I do the work; no weapons formed against me prosper because I have forces surrounding me.

The symbols of the Buddha remind me of an oath that my Spirit has taken to help those I come in contact heal & release their suffering in a gentle but sure way; reminding them that the power that they seek is within, they simply have to change their perspective.

I have always had an affinity for India and other Eastern cultures since I was a child, even though nothing around me encouraged it. I later found out in my twenties, that I was actually an Indian woman (who was a healer of sorts) in my last life. The symbols I chose are all focal points for me to remember that all is as it should be.

Which symbol do you find yourself turning to the most in a time of need or a time of triumph?

The symbol that I turn to the most in a time of need is the Hamsa (Hand of Fatima). Whenever I am nervous or if energy feels weird around me, I gravitate towards that symbol to reassure me that I am protected, all I have to do is breathe & be.

Tell us about the moment that changed the course of your path forever.

The moment that changed the course of my path forever was when I remembered Who I Am. I could no longer play small or give my power away. I was given knowledge and awareness, and with that came great responsibility. Once I knew what my soul/sole purpose was, my perception and my life changed.

What gives you the courage to keep going?

Faith & trust in my guides gives me the courage to keep going. I know that I have been given my mission and my vision for a reason, therefore I know I am given all of the tools that I need to succeed. I am provided for, there is no need or room for FEAR.

What three words would you use to describe our products?

Intentional, timeless, story-telling
