The journal is a way that I can connect with you, whether it be about the brand, books that have changed our lives, updates on our donations, photographs or interviews with people who inspire me. I want Seer & Wilde to add value to your life – so I’m excited to be able to connect and build relationships with all of you.
By all means, I am not a writer, so this will be filled with flaws – but it’s me, and I’ll do my best.
Firstly, I’d like to delve more into the brand name, where it came from, and what it really means to me.
The name came from my forever favourite book – Light Is The New Black.
(I will be writing about this book in more detail later on, as it’s a life changer)
The book discusses different types of women, and for me the Seer and the Wilde women I connected with most. I felt like all women I know are made up of both Seer and Wilde parts and are forever trying to balance the two.
SEER, is the motherly, loving, sensitive, nurturing part of us.
I always felt like my sensitivity was a curse. When I was younger I was constantly told that I was too sensitive, but as I age I’ve become so grateful for it.
It has allowed me to love fiercely, to be heartbroken, to cut through inauthenticity, to fight for the less fortunate and to feel the pain of others. Everything I am today is because of the Seer part of me. My sensitivity to others is what propels me forwards and burns a hunger deep inside me, to make a difference for all those less fortunate than myself.
Being sensitive makes you a better person. With sensitivity comes compassion, and without compassion what are we?
The Seer part of us can also open the gate for Anxiety and Depression. I battled with Anxiety all my life. I was given medication to suppress it, but it never worked. So one day I decided to stop taking the pills, and to try get to the root of what was causing my anxiety. Anxiety for me was always related to either the past, or the future. So either way it was out of my control. I also accepted that it was ok to feel anxious, and I started to embrace it and let it wash over me. I didn’t want to spend my whole life fighting against it – I also learnt how life changing taking three deep breaths can be. Seriously. Game changer.
WILDE, is the brave, fierce, courageous, activist of the world part of us. Our inner goddess.
The Wilde part of me, has only really kicked in over the past few years. As I grow, I become more brave, and more confident in who I am, and what I can bring into the world. Being mostly Seer my whole life, I’ve felt unbalanced for as long as I can remember. The Wilde part of me is starting to bloom, and it’s a game changer. I just wish I found her earlier.
I also think, traveling has opened my eyes so much, and made me realise just how lucky we are, and I couldn’t go home and keep living as I had been. The activist of the world part kicked in, and now everything I do is driven by helping others, and using every platform I can to allow me to do that.
The Seer & Wilde symbol is in perfect balance, but it’s important to note, that when I talk about balance, it’s not an exact fifty-fifty split, we are just aiming for harmony within ourselves.
“A Goddess. A women who is in the process of learning to know, accept and love herself on all levels. Mind, body, spirit. A women who, because she focuses on her personal growth and self awareness, experiences a life, increasingly filled with peace, love, joy, passion and fun. A women that understands that she has unlimited capacity to make her life anything she wants. A women who is inspired to give to those around her because of her gratitude and abundance”.
The symbol to me, represents all women. We are all flawed, but all doing the best we can with what we have. We are forever working on ourselves, and growing, so why not do it together?
This is a safe place, so I would love to hear your stories below.
