If you're looking to enhance your connection to spirit, and the dazzling connection we all have to one another, you've come to the right place.
Rogue Wood is a space for intuitive women.
I aim to write about spiritual subjects in a simple, easy-to-understand way for the modern woman. My goal is to inspire the busy and stressed millennial woman to reconnect with her intuition, femininity and sacred traditions. I love to do this with crystals and plants.
I hope to inspire you to carve out your own wellness rituals.
Here, you will find lessons, tips, and ideas about spirit teachers like crystals, plants and the moon. I also share and reflect on my journey through the hard side of spirituality, such as navigating religion, cultural appropriation and feminism.
You can find my weekly updates on the moon's phases, moodlets and influential energy on my instagram here.
My name is Vanessa.
I'm a writer, graphic designer, university instructor, and intuitive. As a professional storyteller, I believe it is so important to focus on our own stories, rather than putting our energy in a story that belongs to someone else; like the person we think our parents want us to be; the person our spouses want us to be, and even the person we used to think we wanted to be.
I grew up in the Canadian Prairies; a big, blue sky, endless horizon, frigid-winter-type of place, that brews some pretty beautiful places and creative people. There is an amazing creative community in this neck of the woods, and most of us believe since it gets so cold here, we all hole up indoors for a few months of the year and are forced to create these really interesting things - like music, stories, goods, and food.
I studied Creative Communications in college, a program specializing in journalism, advertising, public relations, and broadcasting. My career began in magazine as an art director, and spread through the communications field, largely in journalism, fiction and social media. I did spend five years working in finance, but I maintained a financial column in a local newspaper, and published fiction to keep my hand in writing.
In my experience, I have found that so many of us in creative and communications roles for careers, have a very strong spiritual and intuitive curiosity. Perhaps, once upon a time, we all came from the same place.
