What do you love about being a woman?
What she loves the most is inconsistency. She believes that all human beings, especially women, are an extension of Mother Earth, and just like the weather is different from day to day, women are intrinsically very inconsistent in every moment of every hour of every day. She thought this to be very inconvenient but now she fully embraces it and loves this aspect of being a woman.
A lot of people struggle with allowing themselves permission to just be and show up differently. Can you talk a bit about what permission means to you?
Elizabeth doesn’t need permission from other people. For her, permission comes from herself and God. A big turning point for her came in 2011. She was about to do something different and she has given her mother a heads-up. What she realizes later was that unknowingly she was seeking her approval because when her mother disapproved she didn’t pursue it further. According to her, permission has got to come from within because we cannot please everyone, keeping in view the consequences of our actions and the way we show up.
Tell us a little bit about Wild Soul movement?
Wild Soul moment revolves around the truth that everything you ever needed has always been inside of you. She emphasizes that it’s always been like that even in moments when you thought that you are not enough. The program combines sensual movements, yoga, mantras, and meditation aiming to connect to one’s body and to learn to become fluent in what she calls embody language. It’s about connecting to your body, building self-love and self-trust in the process and honing to our intuition.
In the Wild Soul Movement, what does soul pertains to?
According to her, the soul is what animates you. Soul has existed long before we came in this physical body and what will continue after this lifetime ends. The soul is an eternal part of you and what you have always been. She also believes that we come with knowledge and experiences from other times and other places. So, in a big picture, the soul is our divine essence.
Did you ever think of becoming an entrepreneur?
At the age of 19, she used to sell Cutco knives. She would go from house to house doing appointments and selling knives. She was quite good at it. That is what gave her the taste of entrepreneurship because she could do as many appointments as she like, making as much money as she wants. Later she realized that she isn’t built to work for other people and do something that doesn’t have any positive impact on people.
How has your podcast affected you? Has there been a conversation that made a difference in your life?
She just interviewed Light Watkins yesterday who teaches Transcendental Meditation. He talked about the difference between meditation that’s for householders and meditation that’s for monks. She always had suspected that there are a lot of practices being shared that are not appropriate for those who are living more complex lives; regular people who go to work and raise families. She now has a deeper faith in this truth because it has been validated. So sometimes having external validation helps with faith.
I heard in one of your podcast that you don’t want to have kids. You seem so comfortable in owning that and embody it as a woman. Can you talk a bit about being a woman in the twenty-first century?
While imagining, herself having kids or sharing experiences with her friends who already have kids, she doesn’t feel any desire to be a mother. There is no resonance in it for her. She also acknowledges that maybe it’s because she had never been in a relationship where she had felt the desire to have kids. But because of inconsistency, maybe one day she would decide to have children.
Why Wild Soul Movement? What really moved you with this Wild Soul Movement?
She stands by the idea that everything you ever needed has always been inside of you. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. All this pain and suffering is because people don’t love, honor and respect themselves. She believes that helping others to trust and connect to themselves can have a massive ripple effect. So much injustice and poor treatment of people is based on all kinds of factors that should not matter at all. In a big picture, it’s about dismantling these outdated systems like patriarchy and racism for instance. Primarily her focus was on patriarchy, but recently she realized that these things are all married. Ultimately, she wants to aid others to do what they always wanted to do and live their lives to the fullest.
