Bathe Like an Egyptian


The beauty secrets of the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, are well documented in both fiction and history. After the 1963 epic blockbuster film Cleopatra was released, we have forever associated the femme fatale’s face with the Hollywood icon, Elizabeth Taylor. However, many historical accounts report that she was on the homely side, yet was able to hook (despite her large, hook-shaped nose) any man that crossed her path.

Cleopatra still is the symbol of the feminine power of seduction.

The greatest aphrodisiac is power. She claimed it with abandon–seducing some of the most powerful statesmen the world has ever known: Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.

Cleopatra mothered three sons with Mark Antony and together they plotted to rule the Roman Empire, which was their undoing. After deifying themselves in public ceremonies as Dionysus-Osiris and Venus-Isis, they forever became immortal lovers.

The Egyptian queen was not just a political powerhouse. Cleopatra even wrote a medical treatise about cosmetics, hygiene and makeup! She knew the value of smooth silky hair and dramatic, kohl-rimmed eyes. Her mastery over her image rivals the trendsetting shape-shifters of our own culture: think Madonna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga.

She befriended decadence and good skin exfoliation with her infamous, daily milk bath. I’ve done this bath twice in my life! Truly, I’m asking myself at this very moment of typing, why I’m not doing this at least once per week?

This week’s edition of the Voice of Venus is entitled, “Bathe like an Egyptian: Cleopatra’s Famed Beauty Secret, The Milk Bath.”

I give you my favorite recipe that will make your skin feel like VELVET. No joking here. Take time for yourself today and treat yourself to something sumptuous.

You deserve it!

On another Venus-related note, my 6 week mastermind Venus Soaked Business has been going splendidly well!

We’ve been gathering each week and being 100% transparent about our businesses and our money! In fact, this week we shared the biggest money stories we have that limit our ability to expand into a better version of ourselves in business and in life. There was a lot of release and a lot of tears! I was surprised how emotional I was as each woman told her story in the group. I cried during every one. I’m not much of a “crier” either, but the stories were incredibly poignant and vulnerable.

Being a Venus woman requires incredible courage and vulnerability.

We have 2 more weeks to go and I look forward to seeing how each woman in the group continues to transform. One woman has already nearly paid off all of her credit card debt. A couple of the other women are completely overhauling their websites for upcoming services and retreats they are offering.

I asked them to tell me what they loved about the mastermind after the first three weeks and here’s what some of them said:

“The money manifestation exercise you gave us has been the most powerful for me. Up until now, NONE of the budget exercises in other books and courses made me feel ANYTHING! I was pretending and trying to be modest and working within certain parameters. It didn’t move me! It didn’t motivate or inspire me. It actually sucked energy away from me. This time, I let myself focus on enjoyment, and I felt the floodgates of inspiration open! With these possibilities, I feel in my soul that I will be even more inspired and motivated to do my work.”

“I love you Kris and the energy you bring. I love the small intimate group. When we meet, I can feel the care and love and need for expansion of our gifts that excites me to see in other women. I like that we meet weekly and have end of the week check ins. I love the support and perspectives you bring. My mindset has shifted positively for sure.”

“I love the intimate group size. I love my fellow Venuses. I LOVE that you participate, Kris, and make goals alongside us and share your own progress. I feel like I have started to embrace my sexy and sensual side more in all ways, and a lot of that is because I’m seeing all of us do that together. It’s very empowering for me.”

Good news: I’m offering it a second time beginning on October 30th!

I can take 8-10 women for this journey and won’t be doing this mastermind again until April 2020 (yep, that’s 4/20, wink wink)! I’ve had a few requests to do this as a 1-1 coaching, so I’m offering that option as well.

Learn more and sign up by visiting my programs page, HERE. Registration closes on October 25th.
