Service as part of spiritual practice is an old idea and its constantly being reworked by modern day mystics. As I look around, more and more people are living their life’s purpose through creating work that feeds their soul. Being perfectly imperfect means to me that we were created with all that we need to fulfill our soul’s purpose and that a divine mission no longer means you are a monk, priest, nun, martyr, or saint.
This whole idea of being perfectly imperfect inspired me to focus on New Yorkers that truly highlight their “Soul work” with how they show up for life. Their mere presence in the room, in the world, makes this Earth school experience a better place. By highlighting these amazing people I hope that each person who reads this connects to their own beautiful magic they have to offer the world, and also notice the everyday beauty, compassion and love that surround them.
When I think of Yolanda Shoshana, or Shoshi, I imagine her head thrown back in full-ON rich laughter. Or, in some sexy leggings looking at you with a devilish smile as if she knows what you are thinking. The fact is that this Clairvoyant Courtesan probably has an inkling or two about what you are wanting and won’t be shy about showing you how to get there!
It’s my pleasure to introduce to you this modern courtesan, who has made her Soul work her occupation. Her multi-talented badass self has parlayed her love of life into a multi-faceted career: Courtesan Coach, Seduction Alchemist, and Clairvoyant.
From magazines, radio shows, events, blogs, and personal appearances this lady is always growing, learning and sharing with everyone how to add more love and pleasure into their daily lives. Shoshi is curious, quick, and has an ability to connect with anyone about almost anything. She is all about leaving behind the “good enough” life and engaging your senses to live a life by design and not by default. What she likes to talk about the most is…Sex, love, spirit, AND living an incredibly luscious life!
Here’s to ROCKIN’ your most luscious life and getting some inspiration from our Clairvoyant Courtesan!
VC: How would you describe your spiritual/religious beliefs or relationship to God/the Divine?
“I am Jewish, but would say that I am more on the spiritual end when it comes to religion. My relationship with the divine is my “everything.” I always take time for the divine. Every day I give it up for gratitude for the things that the universe and I are co-creating together. I love being in tune with the divine feminine, the power that comes from that is unbelievable.”
VC: What is your spiritual practice like?
“I do a lot of meditation and talking to the universe. Plus, I listen to the soul whispers that guide me everyday. I would say, however, that my spiritual practice is like a spiritual smorgasbord, it’s a mix of all sorts of things depending on what I need spiritually at the time. It can be anything from reading a book about the divine, taking a class, going to an event, or dancing in the streets of New York City like nobody is watching. I believe that things that make a person feel good are a part of a spiritual practice.”
VC: Do you have any advice on how to connect with your calling?
“The best way to connect to your calling is always to listen to your soul (some people call it their gut). Listening to yourself is the best way to stay true to you. There will always be people who want to volunteer their opinion about what you should be doing and in a lot of cases it will be negative comments. The great news is no one else’s opinion has any bearing on your destiny. Follow your divine spirit, because that inner voice is always talking to you and guiding you on your life’s journey.”
VC: Is there a book/film you highly recommend?
“There are so many great books and films out there; I would love to recommend a whole list of them. I am however reading a fabulous book at the moment called Mind Blowing Sex by Diana Cage. I think every woman should read it. While sex is not everything, it is a whole lot of something. Sex gets downplayed sometimes for women because we keep getting told it is not everything. Sexual energy is creative energy, as well as energy that affects the divine feminine. Mind Blowing Sex is packed with information about myths, history, facts, and more importantly, let’s you know that you are not alone with a lot of your thoughts about sex. I give it a huge thumbs up and say that it is a must read.”
VC: What would you like to see more of in the world?
“I would like to see more true love in the world. I have been talking to so many people lately about their mediocre or bad relationships. True love is completely under-rated, because people are staying with people just so that they are not alone. Being with the wrong person is far worse than being alone. I want to everyone to know that true love rocks and that they can have it if they believe in it!”
