When you can regularly connect with these aspects of yourself, the possibilities both within and ahead open wide.

About Victoria Erickson:

Naturally, I spend most of my time with words. I write for myself. I edit other peoples’ content. I help brands and individuals inject creativity into their public personas, speeches, and books. I work with soon-to-be brides and grooms to find the perfect selection of sentences for their vows. I spent years as a ghost writer writing behind other people’s names, have written fifteen children’s books for a media company, and have also worked with various local magazines and newspapers.

I love the way the sound, shape and texture of words can move off of a page and through a body, weaving through one’s veins, circling to the heart.

I have an extensive background in holistic healing and I believe in wildness and wellness. Everything I do stems from these two words, for they are the two words that make up a life filled with fuel, with wisdom and with beauty.

When you’re creating and choosing paths from a primarily intuitive place, life can be wondrously free, fiery, energetic, and extraordinary. I know. Seems impractical. But it’s real, tried, and true.

You can also find me, my writing, + daily cups of universe in these places:

My bestselling book, Edge of Wonder and Rhythms and Roads, Huffington Post, Rebelle Society, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Yoga classes everywhere.

Remember that it’s beautiful to live in a body built for feeling, and live intensely on a planet exuding intensity.
