Q: TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF IRENE
A: I AM A FIRST GENERATION MEXICAN AMERICAN WHO IS ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH EXPLORING CONSCIOUSNESS, SPIRITUALITY, AND HUMAN POTENTIAL. I FELL MADLY IN LOVE WITH PLANTS AND DISCOVERED THE POWER OF RITUAL IN 2012, AND HAVE LEARNED TO WORK WITH THEM MEDICINALLY AND SPIRITUALLY SINCE THEN. I AM A CEREMONIALIST & A GREEN WITCH WITH THE MISSION TO CONNECT PEOPLE TO THE BEAUTY AND MAGIC OF PLANTS, THROUGH RITUAL.
Q: WHAT DROVE YOU TO CREATE HOLY WILD? WHAT HOPES AND GOALS DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
A: I’VE FOUND SO MUCH PEACE, BEAUTY AND INNER POWER IN WORKING WITH RITUAL AND THE WISDOM OF THE EARTH, AND I’VE BEEN INSPIRED TO SHARE THAT WITH OTHERS. TO BE CONNECTED TO EARTH INTELLIGENCE IS SUCH A TREASURE, AND HAS MADE MY LIFE SO MUCH BETTER THAT I COULD NOT KEEP IT TO MYSELF! CREATING THROUGH HOLY WILD ALLOWS ME TO SHARE ABOUT THE POWER TOOLS I USE TO INVOKE BEAUTY AND INTENTIONALLY CREATE MY REALITY.
Q: TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR NEWEST PROJECT, WE FLOURISH COLLECTIVE. WHAT LED YOU TO CREATE IT?
A: WE FLOURISH COLLECTIVE IS A 9 MONTH JOURNEY OF SISTERHOOD, NOURISHMENT AND EARTH WISDOM. IT’S A SANCTUARY SPACE FOR FEMININE WISDOM AND PRACTICES. WE GATHER MONTHLY TO USE OUR BODIES, HEARTS & HANDS TO CREATE BEAUTY & CONNECT IN A SAFE SPACE, WHILE EXPLORING DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES THAT HELP US KNOW OURSELVES MORE AND NOURISH OUR SOULS.I WAS INSPIRED TO CREATE THIS BASED ON MY OWN EXPERIENCE OF KNOWING WHAT A NOURISHED LIFE FEELS LIKE, AND WANTING OTHER SISTERS TO HAVE THIS EXPERIENCE OF CONNECTION TO THEMSELVES, EACH OTHER AND THE EARTH.
WHEN WOMXN ARE NOURISHED AND CONNECTED TO THE EARTH WE THRIVE, WE FLOURISH, AND OUR COMMUNITIES, PARTNERS & CHILDREN FLOURISH WITH US.
Q: WHAT DOES SUCCESS LOOK LIKE TO YOU? IS YOUR IDEA OF SUCCESS DIFFERENT FROM A PREVIOUS VERSION?
A: MY IDEA OF SUCCESS HAS DEFINITELY CHANGED THROUGH THE YEARS! TO ME, SUCCESS FEELS LIKE A NOURISHED BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT. IT FEELS LIKE HEALTHY LOVING RELATIONSHIPS, CREATIVE FREEDOM, AND BUILDING BUSINESSES THAT EMPOWER PEOPLE AND SPREAD ABUNDANCE.
Q:DO YOU HAVE ANY FAILURES, WHICH IN RETROSPECT, LED YOU IN A BETTER DIRECTION?A: MY FIRST YEAR IN BUSINESS WOULD BE CONSIDERED A FAILURE BY SOCIETY’S STANDARDS. I MADE VERY FEW SALES, NONE OF MY PLANS WORKED OUT, I RAN OUT OF SAVINGS AND I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING! BUT I DIDN’T GIVE UP ON MY DREAMS. I PERSEVERED, GOT CREATIVE WITH WAYS TO MAKE AN INCOME, AND LISTENED DEEPLY TO WHAT LIFE INTELLIGENCE WAS TRYING TO TELL ME. I LEARNED TO LISTEN AND SURRENDER TO A POWER GREATER THAN ME, TO NOT FORCE THINGS, TO TRUST MYSELF, AND THROUGH THAT REVERENCE AND CONNECTION I WAS LED TO CREATE WHAT I HAVE NOW. IT WAS THE TOUGHEST AND MOST REWARDING YEAR OF MY LIFE.
Q: WHAT IS A QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?
A: “VOY DESPACIO PORQUE VOY LEJOS” HAS BEEN MY MANTRA FOR MAKING LIFE DECISIONS AND BUILDING MY BUSINESSES.
Q: IF YOU COULD GIVE ADVICE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
A: I WOULD SAY, “IRENE, TRUST YOURSELF, TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS, BUILD YOUR INTUITION - THAT IS YOUR ANTENNA TO GOD’S WISDOM (UNIVERSAL INTELLIGENCE). THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU DIFFERENT ARE THE THINGS THAT ARE YOUR GIFTS. HOLD THEM CLOSE & KNOW YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED INSIDE YOU TO LIVE A LIFE THAT LIGHTS YOU UP!”
