Awakening from Within to Attract the Love You Want

What inspired you to do the work you do?

I was 22-years-old, modeling internationally and a foreign correspondent journalist. Neither career nourished my body/mind. I was working hard and my body was being pushed to the max. I was isolated. I ended up being hospitalized with a cyst on my ovary that ruptured, and my heart flatlined four times.

I was so sick, I could no longer be a model or a journalist, and all my identities were stripped away. I decided to go back and get my masters in women’s studies. From there, I created Stella Muse, and added all the certifications along the way. Being of service was the most important thing to me.


What does ‘service’ mean to you?

When you tap into your ability to serve with your gifts, it shifts your joy. How we serve our beloved stems from the same place of light and wanting to serve, because you believe you’re here to be of service.


What’s do you mean by ‘awakening from within’?

This is about the three laws of equals. Mind, body, heart (how we feel). Work on these three areas, and you become in alignment with your true self.

Check in with your body, emotions, mind. Are you always tired, late, easily hurt?
Start to see your patterns, and you’ll begin to awaken from within.

This work will benefit you and everyone you’re with.

Live from authenticity and break away from the things that don’t serve us. Honoring your truth helps you meet someone on that same level, or at least someone who wants to work on their truth.

Start with the body, mind or heart, the area you need to work on most. It’s not overnight work, but it’s so worth it. It takes dedication. It’s a lifestyle, so start now!


Can you give our listeners an exercise to move away from fear and illusion into courageous love and mental clarity?

We can forget our feminine nature, the ‘being’ part of us (men and women alike). We neglect it. Women feel guilty for taking ‘me’ time. Slow down and create space.

Could be five minutes to wit with a cup of tea in the morning, take a bath at night, walk in nature during the day. It’s about taking non-negotiable ‘me’ time on a daily basis.

Close your eyes and begin to notice breathing. What’s it like? Soften your belly and let it just be as you inhale. As you exhale, draw your belly button to your spine. Take ten of these breaths, and it will help calm your nervous system. Look at it like a lotus, opening. The mind is tricky. You’re ‘doing being’!

When you’re ready to build on that, look for opportunities to BE. Check in with your body, mind, and heart.

Ask yourself, “What’s one thing you can do today to attend to a part of yourself that needs attention?”

Go from ‘being’ to creative action. What do you need to be true to you? Find your truth in that moment.
