Living Life Your Way.... Interview with Goddess Leonie

I've been working hard the last few months at overcoming my fears and following my dreams. So I'm running a series of interview with inspiring people to see what part fear has played in their life and how they've overcome it to live life their way...

This weeks interview is with Goddess Leonie

Hi Leonie, tell us a little about yourself and your family.

Why of coursicles!

Here's me in dot points:
  1. I'm totally in love with life.
  2. I see a goddess in every woman.
  3. I'm an artist, writer & goddess guide. And I help women to see what I see... the goddess inside them. Life is better when you know you are a goddess!
  4. I have an exquisite baby daughter, Ostara Faith Avalon.
  5. I am in love with a wise man who is also very hot.
  6. We live in my grandmother's old cottage in tropical paradise.

Have you always been self employed? And if not how did you make the change?

I'm very blessed to have a job that is my dream come true, and also manages to support my wee family so that my love and I can stay at home with our daughter.

I have been full time as a goddess for seven months, and was working part time as an editor before then as I grew my business. I took a few years of working part time to get my business to a point that it could really support my family happily.


Is your business as it is now something you've always dreamt of?

Heck yeah!

I love saying that my job is being a goddess!

All of us have our fears, some rule stronger than others. What part has fear played in your life?

Hmmmm. Good question.

For me, I use fear as medicine. As a teaching.

Fear is always leading me back home, to wisdom, knowing and love.

I was afraid of going full-time with my business. But it wasn't a fear that was based in practicality or logic. I knew that my business could earn enough. I was just afraid of the what-ifs: The what if I ran out of ideas? Or luck? What if, like Henny Penny, the sky fell in one day?

But I grew some cahones, and I leapt.

My love and I left the city and our public service jobs. We bought a small cottage {my grandmother's!} in tropical paradise. We did something that took our breath away. And it was perfect.

And you know what? Even if something does happen. Even if one of my fears does come true. I'll always be glad that we leapt. We will always just find the next step of what we need to do, and do it.

It's simple. 

What do you think are the three most important things you need to lead a happy and radiant life?

1. An attitude like my grandmother's. Her motto is this: "I woke up this morning, and I was still breathing, so I thought: Today is going to be a GREAT DAY!"

2. An attitude like my mother's. Her motto is this: "Everything is always going to turn out okay."

3. An attitude like mine: My motto is this: "Joy is an option."

and the bonus:

4. An attitude like my daughter's. Her motto is this: "I rock!"

When you have faced difficulties, what has been your inspiration to keep going?

The 5 Rule.

How will this still affect me in 5 minutes? 5 days? 5 months? 5 years?

Everything always gets better, easier, gentler, kinder.


What advice would you offer on following your heart and living your dreams?


That, and grow some cahones and share your gifts with the world, pretty pretty pretty please.

You are going to bless the world with your incredible talents. It is so flipping true.

Example: A beautiful woman took my Creative Goddess e-course two years ago. She hadn't painted for years and was feeling so lost and stuck in it. And during the course, holy dinger she opened up so much. It was like floodgates opened. And she sent me the most beautiful letter thanking me for helping her to heal that part of her.

This week, she opened up her store of her artworks. Selling art that heals the mother soul. And it really did heal my soul. My daughter is still so young, and like most new mamas, it has been an intense time adjusting to this new life of mine. When I saw Mel's artwork, I couldn't stop staring at it. It opened up a floodgate of healing and joy inside me.

And it felt like this incredible healing had come full circle.

I had courage, and shared my gifts with the world, and it helped to heal a woman.

A woman had courage, and shared her gifts with the world, and it healed me.

Imagine how amazing it would be to have your gifts healing other women.

We need you, sister!
