Re-Wilding the Soul Through Fearless Authenticity
Hello Beautiful, Radiant Soul! Welcome to this safe and sacred space which honors all of humanity, the wild Earth, all genders, orientations and expressions of the Divine spark
As a wordsmith, Intuitive and solitary witch, it is my joy to share my work and creativity and to support you on your journey.
I’ve been following the setting sun—from Europe to Eastern Canada, to mountain and ocean life on Vancouver Island, B.C. – where writing is another word for breathing. A student of Carl Jung, Eckharte Tolle, Clarissa-Pinkola Estes, Osho and influenced by the classics in literature and poetry – my desire is to be of conscious benefit to the unfolding Consciousness.
My work focuses on sharing insights and offering guidance regarding relationships, sacred sexuality, soul-based business, and spiritual awakening.
You can find my written work at Elephant Journal, with over 250 articles written as well as at The Urban Howl, Vista, Natural Life, Vitality, Rebelle Society, Countryside and the Canadian Organic Grower.

Intent on Challenging Social Norms
Author of The Dark Pool Trilogy, a foray into past lives, unconventional love and erotic occultism.
I am non-conformist and encourage everyone I meet to explore their inner wisdom, choose the road less ordinary and revel in their wildest dreams. After all, we are here to experience, to love, to discover our on-purpose life!
As a Scorpio I am naturally drawn to magical pursuits, to exploring the dark side of the moon. If you work with me or read my books, you will be challenged to seek the Wild Feminine and may meet a side of yourself you never knew existed.
My philosophy includes compassionate treatment of the individual, the empowerment of humanity through education, preservation of bio-diversity in nature and sustainable living practices.
A life well lived and a heart generously shared, are what you’ll find me patiently seeking.
Join me on a journey of passion and purpose!

I enjoy reading about your journey.
I wish you well in all things may you prosper in your courage.
Thank you Colin!
Hi Monika – are you on Vancouver Island right now?
I live here and was wondering if you do one on one counselling sessions.
Shasta I just saw this! xo
I’d really like to get in touch with you about astrology! I’ve been studying it for a looong time and could use some help! Thank you:)
Hi Gabbi, in which area particularily?
Love your I AM statement.
I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and
let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
Now i’m very happy I came across this during my search for something relating to this.
Thank you so much!
From tge time I was a child I’ve had vivid dreams of past lives. ..one story came true when I lived in a house and could tell someone what happened in the house when I was a child in the early 1940’s. It was long before I was born…but I knew it exactly. The story was a true story actually experienced by the landlady. When she heard it..she refused to meet with me. No one had ever known this event because she never told a soul. The turning of the Skelton key to the house made me I’ll and frightened. ..I knew what happened. My entire life has been like this and until reading your article I thought I was the only person who had this happen to them. Thank you for sharing your story…I can’t wait to find out more about what’s happening to me. I can’t understand why I came so close to tge person this happened to other than I was told I was a messenger. Thank you again…my journey begins. Vickie
Vickie, trust your dreams and intuitions. There is nothing to be afraid of, life is a continuum, we come and go, the Universe recycles and renews everything, even souls. ❤
Dear Monika I just wanted to say your written piece in Elephant Journal on Being single and alone in a relationship was masterfully expressed . I have just experienced dearest love with someone who feels like family and yet I could never quite connect in the deepest way. There was always an invisible chasm which made true intimacy impossible and despite the love, I had to walk . So your article resonated deeply and I thank you for your gift in sharing it … Many Blessings Medyhne 🙏
Thank you Medyhne. I wrote this piece dredging up a relationship from long ago, and it is offering it’s wisdom to me now. I have to say that I was surprised at how many people are resonating with this, there has been an outpouring of letters! It is always a deep blessing to be able to connect with readers. Thank you for your kind words.
Love and Light, Monika.
Hi Monika. You published an article in Elephant in August 2015 entitled “Men Don’t Leave This Type of Woman.” I was wondering if you are still with the same partner you mentioned in the article for I was intrigued by your statement that you rarely travel together. My boyfriend took an early retirement and per his plans, house and pet sits in other parts of the country, sometimes up to 5-6 weeks. I still work and cannot join him, even though of course he asks. I feel this is too long for a new couple to be apart, even though we talk and Skype while he is away. And he is very happy doing this and I would not ever try to deny him of this. This has nothing to do with trust. I do have other interests, but instead of ending the relationship, I’d like to either become more comfortable with his absences, or find a compromise (less time per sit.) Do you have any advice?
This looks great my Lady! Well done ❤
Thank you so much Peter! Miss you.
‘i am woman. The magic that knits souls into flesh within my womb’ as become my mantra. i say it to myself when i feel weak and i say it when i feel strong. i am grateful.
I read “Choose a Woman…” in Elephant Journal today which led me to “Choose a Man…”
After listening to you your words I’m crying tumbling tears of loving, melted gratitude. You are describing my man.
Years ago I married my heart to him in a lush English forest, beside a trickling stream and fall, making offerings of raw chocolate into his soft, surrendered mouth and sending love into the stream of forever to take it where she wishes for it will never ever be lost.
My life changed, having at last met my dream, after nearly 60 years of knowing it so deeply and living my deepest self, fulfilled and open.
So, thank you for your reflection of my heart in your mirror.
Be well on your way.
Thank you so much for your words and for reading mine. My heart is full. How wonderful that you have met such bliss in another.
Hey! I would love to speak with you about embracing my inner Wild Woman. Would you email me? Thank you! You are an inspiration!
HI Emily, how can I help you? xo
Emily e-mail me @email@example.com xo
If you are at a crossroad or if you need a presence in human form that can be there for you unconditionally then I would say to you reading this now: pick up Mónika …connect with her…!
Why Mónika ? There are so many teachers out there ?
If you want to know why I picked her is first my intuition guided me to her…secondly I intuitively knew I had known her from some place before in the past or future that I cannot explain.
Mónika has been there for me constantly as a family member to me…anytime I contacted her…!
To me she is an embodiment of presence, safety and peaceful guidance.
I’m a very sceptical person when it comes to choosing a mentor or a so called spiritual teacher. With Monika I did not question my choice. I just choose her to offer her magical energy to me when I needed it the most.
There is so much I would add and write about her but I think this is enough for you to get a gist from my experience wit her.
Did you get permission from the copyright holder to publish I am My Mother’s Savage Daughter?
No I did not but was careful to add that it is the copyright of the author, not my words, I mentioned the author twice. On the journey of being a poet and author, I have seen my words re-posted on blogs, social media, etc, so many times, I have had to embrace that our words often belong to the world, and will be shared because people find healing and value in them. My intention is to spread the word about Wyndreth Berginsdottir (Karen Unrein Kahan) and her work. xo
