“You are the author of your own life, and you are in charge of crafting the story.”

 

When was the last time you gave yourself permission to explore your power?  

 

Power isn’t just money, status, or a title – it’s within you. In a world that so highly values climbing the corporate ladder to have power over others, it’s easy to forget the innate power within.  

 

In this episode, I talk with author Marisa Goudy, who recently published her first book The Sovereignty Knot: A Woman’s Way to Freedom, Power, Love, and Magic. Marisa shares her journey to Ireland 20 years ago, where she discovered the myth and magic of the Sovereignty Goddess, which lays the foundation for her book. Throughout our conversation, we analyze the relationship between the Princess, Queen, and Wise Woman, and why each archetype is significant throughout life. We also discuss the taboo topic of death, reproductive expectations for women, and so much more.  

 

Take a listen to learn more about how you can become an authority in your own life.
