Wild Woman Story: Towards the Edge with Christina Radvak

Christina is a timeless beauty. A soft power radiates in her eyes and smile. As a bi-racial woman, she has navigated through some complex terrain, yet her presence provokes a profound depth of self-acceptance. She knows exactly who she is. Not only that, she knows how powerful she is. We wandered down from the forest towards the ocean. We were both called by the calm waves as the tide came in. The water was warm and inviting. Without hesitation, she waded in, pausing momentarily to adjust to movement that now surrounded her.

Water symbolizes emotions and when we wade in we are embracing the currents that shape our experience with the world around us and within us. Tides roll in like clock work, pushed and pulled by a cosmic thread between the moon and the earth.

In the Secret of Water Masaru Emoto advises, “If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.” Finding our way back to ourselves, by submerging our mind and body within the infinite wisdom of water, will renew aspects of ourselves that we did not realize existed.

Wild woman needs water to survive. She needs it to live to her fullest. She needs it to rest back into her wholeness and float upon its surface until she arrives.
