NATALEE MILLER, ARTIST
“When I am obsessed and feel completely electrified, I know I’m in my flow!”
Getting In The Flow
I know I’m in my flow when I can’t think about anything else but drawing! Its all-consuming … like falling in love, or a new crush. My mind becomes completely occupied by new ideas, inspirations, visions for future projects. I get giddy and want to visually and emotionally consume everything. It feels urgent and important to me.
When I was a kid, art was #1. And then during my twenties, I started doing drugs and drinking and didn’t create anything for over ten years. Once I stopped drinking, I did a lot of personal development and explored a lot of different avenues. But when I finally just started drawing again, I finally felt like that search was over. When I am obsessed and feel completely electrified, I know I’m in my flow!
The Beauty In Everything
The movement and expressions of humans and animals. How powerful just a look in the eye or a head or hand movement can be. Sometimes my favorite part of a song will be a slight nuance in the vocals, or an off note that makes the entire song that much more interesting. Mistakes, anything naturally occurring, self-taught artists, heartache, love, a hot rainy day, history, symbolism, mythology, ancient cultures and their rituals and beliefs, all inspire me so much.
The Big Message
The time of my life when I wasn’t creating was a very sad time and I feel like I had lost my dignity and personal power, especially on a sexual level. I make characters that embody what I felt like I was missing. I draw women who have harnessed some kind of power. I don’t really think about it too much, it just kind of comes out, but I hope that when people resonate with something I’ve created, its because they feel powerful in that way, or see something of themselves in it.
The Moon Club Inspiration
It’s easy to just go out and consume info on spirituality and the cosmos and read all the books and all that. But being part of an actual community of people manifesting crazy amazing ideas into their lives, seeing it actually happen, and connecting with other people who are making things happen is so rad.
It’s a motivating and encouraging environment without being brash or aggressive, which I love and appreciate so much! My life has definitely changed a ton in the past four months and I have met some true visionaries and manifested some crazy things through Moon Club!
HEBA TALLAH, LUMINOUS FEMME
“The medicine is in the remembrance. Cutting through the BS and the noise – going straight to the truth, and calling on it.”
A Luminous Femme is a woman who has remembered that her greatest power, beauty, and strength, have been within her all along.
She knows that her trials and tribulations are opportunities for more self-awareness, growth, and compassion. And she jumps into this journey of deeper and deeper self-love and self-awareness with gusto and no apology. She cultivates a deep love and respect for her Femmebody, for the way she waxes and wanes, and for her inherent superpowers along the way.
I have been called here to anchor the Light and the Divine Feminine (in the Middle East, no less) and across all borders on Mama Earth. I feel the deepest honor and gratitude for carrying this calling. And such reverence for this life!
Being a woman (or a human, for that matter) in today’s world can feel so draining, confusing, and sometimes downright infuriating. Claiming who we inherently, truly are—and our connection to Source that is right here, in our heart space, in our every cell, at any given moment—is the fast track to inner peace. The medicine is in the remembrance. Cutting through the BS and the noise—going straight to the truth, and calling on it.
The medicine is also in knowing that the divine feminine that is within us all is awakening en masse—and she is not to be tamed, or quieted, any longer. I created Luminous Femme as a container to facilitate a woman’s return to her inner core, which is already perfect and whole, and to remember how to live from that space on the daily. Because there’s nothing juicier or more healing for the world than a woman in her divine feminine element!
The Birthing Process
It has been at least five years (more like my lifetime really) since I’ve had this luminous gift and voice pulsing inside, wanting to be expressed. This has meant healing myself and my blocks, my stories, and working through them all. It’s been knowing I had a message to share but having life keep throwing me curveballs to fill in all the blanks and help me get over whatever held me back in the past.
Discovering yoga at age 18, becoming a teacher 12 years later, and the journey it takes me on a daily basis is humbling and so fulfilling. My mat is my healer, my sanctuary.
The Moon Club Inspiration
It really feels like the coolest place to hang out on the web. I’ve been a Numinous reader for years and a lover of all things Moon related, which is a big part of Luminous Femme philosophy—cyclical living and connecting to the Moon phases.
When I see how this conversation is so normalized in the club, and the presence of all the women in the group who are so strong and healing and brave, it fills me up with so much juice and passion for this way of life. We’re all so connected and willing to do the work—to show up, to accept, and to self-realize. It’s not only deeply informative, it’s also so much fun, like a cosmic pajama party! It’s such an honor to walk this way with you all.
