Show Topic: What does Passion Diva really mean?
There are a couple things that could pop into you mind the song Beyonce sang Diva or maybe Annie Lennox for her first solo album Diva. Or maybe you think of that somewhat off balance Brittney when she was shaving off all her hair. These are very recent interpretations of what a Diva is.
On Passion Diva Radio lately we have talked a lot about identify with feminine Archetypes in order to connect better with our true selves. Whether you connect with Andrea Carter and her Wealthy Woman Warriors or you connect with Susan Schackterle’s, Bitch Crone & Harlot, there is a lot of value in using an archetype to help us step into our personal power.
This got me thinking that now might be a good time to clarify exactly what Passion Diva means to me and why I consider every woman that I connect with to be a Diva Sister!
Beyonce’s Song Diva
Annie Lennox Album Diva playlist
Let’s look back to the origins of the word Diva.
From Latin, the feminine form of divus ‘divine one; notably deified mortal’
Goddess… that is what I am talking about!
If we walk forward in time to the 1800’s
Word Origin and History for diva
Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2010 Douglas Harper
Now let’s step into the 2000’s when I started using Diva
diva f (plural dive)
1. A brilliantly audacious woman, that stands in her personal power, is connected to her inner Goddess and creates life on her own terms.

I know right!, super cool!
Now let’s add Passion in
noun \ˈpa-shən\: a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something
: a strong feeling (such as anger) that causes you to act in a dangerous way
: a strong sexual or romantic feeling for someone
Combining both Passion and Diva together looks like this:
passion diva f (plural dive)
1. A brilliantly audacious woman, that stands in her personal power, is connected to her inner Goddess and creates life on her own terms, she does this with so much enthusiasm that everyone around her is inspired and excited by her vision.

This is my intention, this is the kind of woman that I aspire to be. This is what I teach/mentor/train through my experience, my example and my passion.
This is why everyone woman (and some really cool men) that I have the privilege of connecting with is truly a “Diva Sister”
Passion Diva Manifesto
Choice and Freedom
I spent a lot of time, trying to come up with the perfect “manifesto” I really want to share the depth of my passion for creating my own personal lifestyle. I wanted to share how I believe with the bottom of my heart that teachers and mentors MUST practice what they preach. They must walk the walk and talk the talk.
But here I sit in a the middle of a cafeteria with my iPad and my iPhone as my only source of internet and I am typing this blog post.
I was struck with the truth of the situation! I got up this morning, I decided I need to take a drive to work on a specific problem for a client in person. And while I wait for the meeting time.
BAMM! I am walking the walk and talking the talk. I choose and I have the freedom right NOW today to do what I love from where ever I am. Sure I have some things that I choose to do because I have responsibility and consequences, it is not like I am going to let go of my personal integrity.
