Performing at our highest level in life, is living a beautiful and fulfilled life: THIS is BlackBeltBeauty.

Mar 17, 2022

This week’s guest is soulful artist and author of Ebb & Flow, Deja Rae. 

Deja is a writer, explorer, and dreamer. Since she was young, her inquisitive mind has led her on a perpetual journey towards enlightenment and self-discovery. Both introspective and analytical, Deja’s work focuses on identifying patterns in the world and articulating shared human emotions.

With a bachelor's degree in psychology and an ongoing master’s degree in international development, Deja hopes to use her education and creative skills to empower others to chase after their most authentic selves

What initially drew me to Deja’s work (which ironically is also the inspiration behind her next book) was this profound caption on one of her posts: “the capacity to love is based on the capacity to be alone.” Each poem and prose Deja has created is a work of art that echoes the BBB standard of SELF-love, SELF-trust, and SELF-empowerment. I’m so excited for you to discover her magic + wisdom in this episode.

In this conversation, Deja + I dive into…

  • How to use your creative channel to process trauma and heartbreak.

  • How Self-Love can expand you + help you express your fullest potential authentically. 

  • The levels of fear that can arise from sharing your heart-centered work.

  • Embracing duality, multiple passions, and using them to leverage your most optimal Self-expression. 

  • Seeking the fight by staying grounded and comforted in your truth.

  • Using failure to find your successes and evolve.
