As the first born daughter in a family of highly successful architects in Argentina, I felt a lot of pressure growing up to set a good example for my sisters and to make my family proud of me. My father is a very tall man and my mother very beautiful, and I remember at a young age being told by people around me..."Look at those long legs! You could be a model!" And so a seed was planted deep inside my mind.

The truth was, I was not feeling pretty or attractive at all. On the contrary, I felt like the ugly duckling most of my puberty and teenage years. In 1995 I turned 20 and finished my studies at a very prominent high school within Buenos Aires. Following in my family's footsteps, I continued my education studying Industrial Design at University. There were not very many women is this field at this time and it brought many challenges to my life.

At the same time the seeds which had been planted years before began to sprout and grow...maybe I could be a model after all. I was at the age where fashion, clothes, makeup, art, travel and all things glamorous are desirable.

We all have moments in our life when we feel unauthentic or stuck.

Many women come to me at a time when they are feeing disconnected from themselves and can no longer remember their Dream. They are lost inside their own thoughts of who they "think" they should be, who they "think" they are, and how they "truly" want to be.

“I am not being myself.” “I do not feel authentic.”

Can you relate ?

And here is the thing : there is no way to not being authentic. You are always being who you think you are. The way you show up at any given moment is based on how you are thinking and feeling.

To me, being authentic is 100% related to being aligned in mind-body and heart and acting from a place of integrity every day : showing up based on your values and what is truly important to you. Not compromising and endlessly adapting to external circumstances and people.

I recently gave a speech on women’s leadership and wellbeing at one of the UN Women’s Networks where I shared these 3 top sources of stress, and practical solutions to overcome them. It is important information most of the time totally overlooked at the workplace, so I decided to share it with you here today :

Source of stress #1 : The illusion of “Separation”. The belief that “I have to do it alone” . Until recently, scientific research has proved that humans react to stress with a “fight or flight” response. But … did you know that over the last 4 decades, 90% of scientific research on stress (or any other on hormones, for that matter) has been done exclusively on men ? Why ? Because the female hormonal system is too unpredictable and changing. Until two female researchers, Dr. Klein and Dr. Taylor, in late 90’s did a research on stress hormones on women. They demonstrated that during the male response of “fight or flight”, men produce testosterone, the hormone that reduces stress hormones (such as cortisol) in men. Women's response is completely different because they need a very different hormone to lower the stress levels. They called the female response to stress “tend and befriend”, which helps the female body to produce oxytocin, the hormone that women need to lower stress.

Let me tell you this straight away : Lead from your Womb.

What ?
Yes.
What is so shocking about it ?
All women have a womb. We all develop inside a womb. It has been everyone’s first home.
Can we take its presence in our bodies for granted ?
Do we really think the pain many women suffer with their menstrual cycle is actually “normal”?

What if this pain actually comes from ignoring its teachings ?

If we aim to create a life, career, businesses being the most authentic expression of ourselves, we need to feel fully comfortable with the word, and existence, of our womb.

OUR STRENGTH AND POWER LIE NOT WITHIN ONE PHASE BUT IN THE FLOW OF CHANGING PHASES, EACH SUPPORTING THE OTHER & CREATING THE WOMEN WE ARE.

The number #1 question my clients bring to Dare To Glow is “How do I find balance in my life, when I feel pulled in so many directions ?”

After so many generations cultivating our intellectual knowledge and developing our mind powers, we have constructed a dismembered image of ourselves, and our lives. Hence, the pull.

The journey of the Glowing Woman, she who sets herself on a quest for balance, creativity and freedom, starts with the initiation and integration of the four feminine archetypes : The Wise Old Woman, The Maiden, The Mother and The Enchantress. There are two of them, who “work” intimately together creating balance, that are the ones calling you back home.

Are you interested in creating a life and career you absolutely love? So am I. Join me here for a special practice to make Soul Centred Resolutions to manifest exactly that in 2015.

The way we close a cycle, is the way we open a new one.

To close 2014, I want to share my deep gratitude to the most challenging situations that actually helped me to leap into the woman I set myself to become this year.

Back in 2008, I committed myself to living a Soul Directed Life. It has been a bumpy road, as I had to unlearn many, many things I believed about myself, life and business.

By 2013, I felt I had enough roots to expand by glowing even more who I really am. In a nutshell, my Soul Centred Resolution for 2014 was “I am expanding by my full self expression.” And so life provided me with the most funky teachers and lessons for me to experience just that.

As the year draws to a close, I want the Universe to know : I am deeply grateful for the greatest teacher of all, Life itself, and the following lessons :
