We had the good fortune of connecting with honeybee henderson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi honeybee, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Life has a way of gifting us opportunities to have our greatest desires met. My greatest desire has always been to help people fall in love with who they are, in service to a world that swirls in LOVING presence…yes, my desire and my dream and my mission!
While I can’t say there was much “thought” about starting my own business, I can say that the Universe prompted me to get off my ass, and do something about it. It was 2009, I was at a job i didn’t like…and I was fired. It would be the last “job” I would ever have, as I was never really cut out for selling people things, or working for anyone else, but I didn’t know what to do.
So I turned within, and tuned in to my Soul’s Master Plan, and I got a glimpse of my work in the world. And the day I was fired, I made the decision, kind of pact with the Universe, that if I took this step in helping people, I asked to be supported, held and guided each step of the way.
The Universe has definitely held her end of the bargain.
I was already teaching yoga, holding women’s circles, offering retreats and workshops, but it was time to serve in a bigger way. And that is just what happened. The business grew organically over the years, and today, it still evolves. I am honored to be living my purpose as a Spiritual Counslor/Life Coach.
I am here to love and support you connecting to the divine soul within, and help you to remember how freaking amazing you are. Yep, you. Every one of you reading these words, you.
Building a business hasn’t always been easy, or without challenge. This is more than a business for me, this is a calling. Sometimes a good cry helps me through to the next step, but this calling is birthed from Love. OHHHHH I have the best work on the planet!
Soul Diving was a name whispered in my ear in a deep meditation over 15 years ago, and that is what I help people do…Soul Dive. I am seeker, a seeker of truth ancient and new, tools to help me evolve and grow, and ways to work with and move energies….I love to share the tools I have learned along the way.
And yes, thank you Universe for having me leave a situation I had outgrown, and boost me into being of great service and support to the planet! thank you….
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
The work evolves as the needs of the clients evolve. However, the staple in my practice is Self Love. I believe Self Love will heal the world. Imagine…if everyone loved who they were, there would be more generosity, more joy, more people doing what they love. A world made of people loving themselves is the heaven on earth we came here to create together. A world with no competition, a world of peace and harmony….ahhhh one day, we will get there together, healing one issue at a time.
My work is to look at both the micro and macro. We follow and track consciousness as it shifts and changes, and we apply different tools to support people that in this now moment. There is no formula, only experimentation.
Recently, we finished our inaugural group program named Soul Diving Sessions. This work, is to date, the greatest work that we have done. It’s an 8 month journey into the chakra system. We uncover hidden parts of ourselves that are ready to be seen, healed and loved…and we vision what it is that we want to create in this world, for ourselves, for our children, for strangers…we create our reality.
With much success and women from around world, we will be offering this again starting in May 2021.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Oh fun. I am a beach girl, lived in Venice/Marina del Rey for 18 years. I would start with an early morning Sunrise Yoga session on the Marina del Rey beach, followed by a walk on the canals, and if it’s friday…head over to the Venice Farmer’s Market and grab some yummies for the weekend ahead.
I may invite you to hop on a scooter or skateboard and cruise up the boardwalk to Santa Monica, grab a bite to eat on the way at Cafe Gratitude, a place I always call home. If you are into water sports, we could paddle board, or go for a surf. I may even take you up to Malibu for an afternoon sunset treat.
If you are into hiking, I will take you up the sacred mountains of Topanga and invite you to ritual at the labyrith at Tuna Canyon.
I love how lucky we are in LA to have so much nature around us. what a delight. I LOVE LA!!! Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I consider myself a devotee of Divine Mother. You can think of her of the birther of creation. You know, no small thing?! Divine Mother is the energy of Unconditional Love that guides me and my life and in my work. It is for her that I do all that I do, and it is through her that I feel the energy and support to help people shift life long traumas and patterns in order to learn how to love themselves the way Divine Mother does.
This is not religious, at all. Divine Mother is the creator of everything you see, and everything you dream you may see in the future. She is the pulse of life itself. Some know her as Shakina, Sophia, Ma, Lalita, Shakti…Many traditions and each one carries a special place for the Mother.
I have spent years, decades, maybe even lifetimes cultivating a strong connection to the energy of Divine Mother. She is with me always, and especially, her presence is there when I work. If i sit and listen, she guides the entire process, which always delights me as a witness to her majesty and grace. The way she leads someone back to their own heart is simply stunning to witness.
I don’t like to use the words channel, but in these sessions, her energy is very present with me, and I have learned to listen and abide by instruction. She always has love to share, to offer to give, so the reflection of love is felt by all. Thank you Mother for always guided me, in my life and in my work.
