As editor in chief of ecofemmag, each week, I listen to Ellen’s podcasts and write summaries of the interviews she conducts with extraordinary eco-business owners, empowered women and men, compassionate environmentalists, and fellow nature-lovers. I can honestly say every podcast of Ellen’s I’ve listened to has emotionally moved me or inspired me in one way or another.
But, dear ecofeminists, this week, listening to Ellen share her journey about speaking from the heart and her personal goal to improve her ability to stay present in her heart while in the company of others moved me to tears, accompanied by continuous waves of goosebumps. I related to her on such a deep level that I had to listen to the podcast twice before I could sit down and take notes to write the summary.
The raw authenticity of her voice, the gentleness in her words, the truth she reveals about herself to the world – wow – I am beyond fortunate to know and work side-by-side with this radiant, high-vibe woman.
“If I, the founder of this magazine & podcast can’t fully express myself, then what message am I sending to you, our beautiful listener? I feel this fire in me, this need to express myself authentically.”
I sincerely hope you take ten minutes of your day to listen to Ellen share about the struggles she has faced staying grounded in her heart center in the presence of others, and how she plans to overcome them.
Is speaking from the heart something you struggle with, too? Do you have advice you’d like to share with us, your ecofemmag team, or your fellow ecofeminists? Our goal here at ecofemmag is not only to share our wisdom with you, but we crave your wisdom as well. We want nothing more than to grow together, rise together, evolve together. To be raw, authentic individuals, together.
Thank you, for being you.
