I have been in Desire since my divorce 15 years ago. My Desire has been around creating conscious relationships with Self & Other.
I was emotionally severed from my partner; so lonely, so tired, so flat in my daily existence with him that it felt like I was literally dying a slow death.
Today my desire is ongoing, an unfulfilled quest. Some would say,
“Poor dear, can’t find her true love, if only…who can we find for her...hmm maybe she needs therapy…”
Look into the window of my soul, there is no sorry me, there is only a woman filled with a burning desire that will never allow her to abandon Self, her knowing of Self, her truth.
Knowing her ignites Desire. She wakes my wildish knowing, my aching heart is aching with Desire.
I slog through rivers of mud, fire swept forests, heavens hurling stones that pelt my bruising muscle, but I don’t stop, yearning for the One, the One who will meet me. Never will I retreat from my...
Welcome to episode 02 of The Revelation Project.
Today on the show, our co-host Monica will be talking about her recent "vulnerability hangover." She describes her dismay when it dawns on her that she wont be able to hide as much now that the podcast is live. She struggles to honor all the parts of herself in the face of overexposure, and shares what came up for her in this podcast launch and how her "mess became her message."
We talk about why knowing your truth is important, what you can learn from difficult situations, how to show up authentically and much more.
We hope you enjoy the show!

Welcome to The Revelation Project Podcast!
The Revelation Project was designed to disrupt the trance of unworthiness and reveal conversations that foster connection, healing, humor, and self-actualized love for the women of our planet (we aim to enroll men that are curious about changing the status quo as well!).
In addition, The Revelation Project podcast will host thoughtful interviews with other change-making humans who offer compelling perspectives and new narratives that move us away from traditional patriarchal influences and towards accelerated consciousness, ultimately shaking up old paradigms and waking up new insights.
Each week we hope you enjoy inspiring topics that un-pack deeper truths, and reveal the hidden gifts beneath the surface of everyday living. Soul-dive with us into vulnerable and courageous topics to reveal the animated spirit of our lives, and witness the revelations that bring meaning and healing toward the integration of the masculine and the...
Regardless of our gender, we are ALL created of masculine and feminine energy. When we take a deeper look we can see this “law” of nature in everything. The duality of the Feminine & Masculine nurtures everything in the world. This is a profound concept when we really take pause with it.
I have been taking pause with it these past few weeks as we have been exploring this topic. And, I am realizing how my wounded feminine has held me back from deeper more emotionally intimate relationships, by unconsciously leaning into my wounded masculine to help me cope with the fear of vulnerability. Can you see the racket that gets played out here? When one is out of balance it is inevitable the other will be as well. We have to recover to our Divine Feminine or Masculine to meet with the duality of the Divine Feminine & Masculine. One of the energies must recover to Divine in order for the other to recover as well. How the hell do we do this???
We soul-dive. We have to...
Did you see the 1968 film, Yours, Mine and Ours, with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda? If so, then you will have a pretty accurate image of my family, except we were a family of 11, not 20. I was the second to youngest and invariably got lost through the cracks of chaos. It's no wonder since my younger sister was born within months of our parents getting married, and everyone was trying to find their own place in this newly joined tribe of the Read/Willets family.
It was no one’s fault that I was “squeezed out” similar to “Philip” in the film, who was constantly forgotten. Looking back today I marvel at how well my parents did managing our brood. I have so many treasured memories and so much gratitude for my parent’s vision and courage bringing us together, and raising us all with an unshakable love.
And, I had my own story within this larger story. When my little sister was born she was diagnosed with Down syndrome and needed lots of...
To build a sense of trust with myself, I had to learn to connect to the deeper parts of my TRUE Self, even the aspects of myself I did not always "like".
I used to call my practice "Radical Acceptance" because to love myself well in a world that had trained me not to seemed just that, a radical act which felt deeply foreign. Loving myself went against how I was socialized, which was to disconnect from, abandon, objectify, criticize and deprecate myself.
As a woman, I was used to gathering with other women and I had many friends, but what seemed to bond us most often was our collective suffering or our complaints. We would find the talking points that put us on equal ground (equally miserable!) or air our collective grievances about what wasn't working in our lives, or worse, put on a facade about what was. Basically a collective stitch and bitch, or a show, putting a smile on our faces when we felt anything but content or happy. I noticed that what we...
It has been an incredible couple of weeks of revelations since returning from our TRP Fall retreat, "Revealing the T.R.U.T.H ™ of Who I AM".
My own truths surfaced like a freight train derailing at high speed and I had no choice but to dive in. Poetically I was faced with a huge disappointment literally within 24 hours of kicking off our retreat. I had received a rejection letter from CTI, a company that I hold near and dear to my heart and consider a part of my personal evolution to living my most honest, co-active, enriched, conscious life. The rejection was timed perfectly (a disguised gift) as it dropped into my awareness on the Friday night that we had kicked off our retreat, and as I was co-leading this retreat I had no place to hide, to pretend...I mean we were leading a retreat about personal TRUTH for Goddess's sake!
I could pretend (a lie) or I could be real, be transparent, and share it with our group to teach, to model, to lead for the highest of good, as well...
Think of all the fairytales we grew up with where the central female character is always rescued from danger through a force larger and stronger than herself.
From a young age we read or watch programs or consume images in our likeness who are very limited in their character roles. Some will be married to a handsome prince, some rescued from towers, some warned about the dangers of eating apples or straying off wooded paths. Our character choices are most often limited to innocence-lost, princess, step-mother, fairy -godmother or witch.
While modern fairytales and stories have worked to change these narratives, there is still much work to be done.
If women are going rise into positions of leadership throughout the world then we must be diligent in understanding and decoding the messages that are still rampant across our culture that objectify, undermine and shame us into the trance of unworthiness.
Instead we must begin...
