Unleash your inner Goddess…feel balanced, powerful and free.
By exploring the goddesses, a person can understand the way that these energies are expressed and balanced in their own lives. We all have an inner goddess that is calling out for our love and attention. Developing Goddess Acumen means giving your inner goddess the opportunity to empower, inspire and guide you to abundant and successful living.
Meet Helen Johnson.
What is the key to finding freedom, purpose and balance?
The key is to start listening to yourself… Turning down the chatter and letting your inner voice come through – the voice that isn’t governed by fear, anxiety, scepticism, or anything else that holds people back. It’s a voice that comes from a loving, positive place and accepts you as you are.
You know how there are a lot of different layers and aspects to our lives? Well, the Goddesses are a way of making sense of that. Women are wonderful, complex, multi-faceted creatures. Sometimes we have competing needs and demands. Goddesses celebrate femininity and women’s lives and at the same time offer a way of balancing the different aspects of ourselves. Also, it’s a fun way of looking at things… Fun but very powerful! People get new insights and it opens up new possibilities.
Goddessness, what’s that all about?
Goddessness is about taking your place in the world knowing that your are fabulous. End of. Then the only decision you need to make is how to let that fabulousness shine.
How has your own personal journey influenced the birth of Goddess Acumen?
In short, I was brought up with the concept of being a goddess and eventually, years after my mum died, I read the book that my mum had got her ideas from (called ‘The Goddess Within’). My experience of reading that book was like my mother was guiding me. It was such a celebration of femininity and so wise that I decided more people should know about these Goddesses!
How does your work help others?
I help people to find their authentic self, to transform their lives, and to shine their light into the world. I enable people to release any thoughts, feelings or behaviours that are holding them back and to generate a greater sense of balance, purpose and freedom. As you help each Goddess to thrive, you thrive.
On a very practical level, I would say that everyone should learn tapping (also known as EFT) – seriously, tapping is insanely brilliant and effective! It is such a simple technique and really helps to transform your energy. It is a way of physically releasing thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that don’t serve you by tapping on certain parts of your body while addressing anything that causes you stress or distress. It basically helps to centre you. I have found it transformational.
What does Holistic living mean to you?
It means treating yourself like you are really special and important and like you have the time and energy to take care of yourself as a precious commodity. Not always as easy as it sounds but no-one said it needs to be done perfectly!
What is your message to cynics, sceptics, and the intrigued?
No matter who has come through my doors (and I’ve had a few sceptics!), they have always left a session feeling better and LOVING the Goddess work. Tapping is so effective that people are sold through just experiencing its effects. As for the Goddesses, they are used to explore different aspects of our lives as women. As a metaphor, this is both powerful and effective. It offers a new perspective and a new way of relating to yourself – no-one is asking you to ‘believe’ in anything! In short, it WORKS and it can be transformational.
Finally, what are your top five tips for self-love?
- Develop a daily practice that involves tapping
- Practice telling people what you need without being attached to the outcome
- Only say ‘yes’ when you mean it
- Forgive yourself, forgive others, forgive, forgive, forgive
- Set standards and stick to them (forgiveness doesn’t mean letting people/yourself cross boundaries)
