90. Living In Your Goddess Nature: Cycles of Womanhood and Cultivating Sacred Selfishness With Nicole Devaney, Master CHEK Practitioner, Ex-Exotic Dancer and How-To Holistic Healer

Nicole Devaney is a shining example of a woman who is truly living in her Goddess nature. She is a faculty instructor at the world-renowned CHEK Institute and considers herself to be a “retired healer and self-employed way-show-er,” as she believes we all intuitively crave to be our most vibrant and healthy selves.

In this empowering episode you may feel as though you are eavesdropping on Nicole & I chatting like two old friends about our lives, dreams and beliefs about who we are as women in this modern culture. I resonate with her as a dancer, entrepreneur and fellow Warrior-Empress living from the wisdom of her soul. Nicole shares the story of her adventurous career in exotic dance and how breaking her spine led her to healing, love and purpose through the holistic health of the CHEK Institute.

We discuss the term “sacred selfishness,” and Nicole explains why it is absolutely okay—and even necessary— to defy the culturally-approved “martyr” identity and care for ourselves with gifts, acceptance (and sometimes chocolate) in a way that may be perceived as selfish. We also take a deep dive into the subject of feminine sexuality and how we can awaken our sacred power as women: from awakening the power in our hips through dance to addressing the myths of peri-menopause and embracing our ever-changing bodies. What would the world be like if we celebrated and acknowledged women’s major life transitions between the phases of Maiden, Mother, Empress-Warrior and Wise Woman-Crone? Lastly, I ask Nicole to share some tips on MANifesting your dream partner, and she gives us the inside-scoop on the spiritual growth she experienced through her past and present romantic relationships. Whew… describing this meaningful & intimate episode barely does it justice, so go get cozy and press play!
