#BEYOUROWN MEETS EMMA BETH ROBBINS
Emma Beth Robbins went through a number of life-changing experiences in a tremendously short space of time that plunged her into the darkness and forced her to completely let go of control and what she thought she knew as reality. Without any idea of the path she was about to embark on and with only a faint whisper of an intuitive voice as her guide she surrendered everything and began a holistic journey to discover her true essence and spirit.
During the process, she successfully healed her cervical cancer, arthritis, psoriasis naturally and reclaimed and reconnected with her wild dark and messy cyclical nature. Now fully awakened to her divine sexual expression and feminine power, Emma now guides and facilitates women to coming home to their same authentic truth having gained her training and experience in a number of areas including spiritual sexual healing and awakening, intuitive spiritual guidance, energy healing, shamanic drumming, plant medicines, theta healing, sacred feminine embodiment, emotional mindfulness, and mind/heart/body connection.
Hey Emma, can you introduce yourself to us and tell us your story?
What a remarkable platform to share and be witnessed. Thank you for the opportunity.
Hello, gorgeous inspiring woman! I’m Emma, a single mother of five incredible boys who are 8 and 6 years old. (four of them were born on the same day). Yes, I know! it was a massive shock to me too! We live in Wales in the UK, surrounded by rolling hills and countryside. The forest is our backyard and playground. Divine Feminine embodiment and conscious, sacred sexuality are my soul passion and my gifts to share, awaken and heal in the world. I am here to bring balance back to the masculine and feminine expression and presence on our planet, and to transform the way we hold our sexuality; both individually and culturally. My path is divinely guided. I draw on her magic and powers to bridge the gap between the worlds, co-creating my life and work so that I can serve through my highest expression.
Getting to this place has been a bumpy and exhilarating journey. After a number of life-changing experiences in a tremendously short space of time plunged me into the darkness, I was forced to completely let go of control and what I thought I knew as reality. As I began a holistic journey to discover my true essence and spirit, I had only a faint whisper of an intuitive voice as my guide.
Oh thank you, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what the incentive was to launch Untamed Goddess?
My journey of remembering and healing began for me through necessity. A dire need to heal and awaken my heart, mind, body, and soul. At the time I was fraught with confusion, and my body was torn apart by illness. I had two choices. To succumb to what I was told was my reality, the life that lay ahead for me, or to find a different way.
Up until this point, I had never considered anything other than what I’d been lead to believe was my experience of life, and the reasons things just kept ‘happening to me’. I had no idea that I could have control over my health by addressing the underlying root cause rather than just putting a plaster over the wound. I had no idea I had the power to create and manifest my own dreams and reality. I had no idea that underneath all of these masks and beliefs lived a profoundly whole, connected, intuitive feminine force.
I was just living. Getting by. I was hurting inside and out. The turning point for me was a day back in January 2016 when I had returned to the doctor once more to ask him if there wasn’t anything else I could do to try and get off all the pharmaceutical medications I was on for diagnosed psoriasis and arthritis (which were now creating more side effects). Instead of receiving a solution or advice I was I was given another heart-wrenching diagnosis of the cancerous cells in my womb. I was told that the only solution would be to have a hysterectomy. It was in that moment that something called to me. I heard a call loud and clear, to heal, love and respect my body. To remember who I was and why I had come to this earth.
I was desperate and so wholly open. I was awakened by concepts and ideas that in the past would have seemed so ‘far out’. The more I uncovered, opened up to and started to practice and implement in my life, the better I felt. I felt connected to my body, my heart, and my soul. I learned to love myself and look after myself in a way that I had never done before. It made me feel alive! Not only that during the process, I healed my cervical cancer, arthritis and psoriasis naturally.
And so I was initiated into my Divine Feminine essence. The crazy thing was it had always been there! But I had unconsciously chosen to ignore and repress it because of the world around me. I learned her, honored her, turned back into her cycles, rhythms and the gifts and the lessons she offered at every glance. It was hugely influential and life changing! However, at the same time, it was tremendously painful. Becoming conscious of why I had been living so much in my head and striving for success and financial gain.
Learning why I had lost touch with my feminine nature and essence. Why I viewed my body and my womb, my menstrual cycles, and my emotions and wild nature in the way that I did. Because it had been suppressed for hundreds and even thousands of years. My ancestors had been killed just for being a woman and having gifts and powers that could heal and serve the world. It was so hard to remember and to address these aspects of Self that had been so blocked, shamed, judged and repressed. But each time I surrendered, and I let myself sink into the darkness and the places I was scared to go something incredible happened. I came out the other side freer, wiser, more trusting and in tune with myself and my intuition.
It made me so aware that if I had these gifts inside of me, then we all do! We all have a gift, a purpose, a dharma in this lifetime. Something that is entirely unique to us to share with the world. So the incentive was more of a calling,
I was inspired to share what I had embraced and embodied with others, to help them to experience life in a new way if they too were searching for something more. I trusted in the messages and the guidance that I was receiving to go out and share the truth of women’s mysteries and activate the path that has been forgotten by women. So that they could reconnect with their essence and open the doors to explore, unlock and express their fullness. Awakening sacred gifts, passions and purpose at the same time as healing wounds, self-limiting beliefs, and health problems.
Can you give us the definition of an Untamed Goddess?
She is a woman on a path of discovery; a journey of remembering. That will uncover the elements of her heart, mind, body, and soul that make up her full vibrant wholeness. She knows that authentic self-love and acceptance comes from embracing her dark and her light. She makes a commitment to allow herself to go to the places she may be afraid off, to heal her wounds and her conditioning.
She is a wild and natural creature, dancing to the beat of her own drum. She feels deep down in her bones that there is more. She’s focused on her desire to experience a life filled with peace, love, joy, sensuality, and passion. She is a woman that understands that she has unlimited capacity to make her life anything she wants, a powerful force filled with instincts, innate wisdom and endless knowing.
What was the process of launching Untamed Goddess and how much research did you do prior to launching to know there was a demand in the market?
I felt a call deep within me to share my gifts with the world, and as soon as I connected to that truth things just unfolded for me organically. I am still in the stages of building awareness and educating, to raise awareness and consciousness. Market research happened organically for me too. Once I stated my intention and began to share content and teach mini-workshops on the topic I was inundated by women showing up in my life, resonating with my story and feeling the collective pull to return to their essence and truth.
Why do you think so many of us struggle with self-love and self-worth?
I feel the reason we struggle with self-love and self-worth is due to the culture we live in. The vast majority of us have been conditioned to a patriarchal view of the world and what it means to be a woman. We have grown up being told that when we express the fullness of who we are, we are ‘too much’! Our spectrum falls in the middle with the roles of mother and the good girl being the acceptable archetypes that we are ‘safe’ to express.
When we express the fullness of who we are, the Wild Woman, the Dark Goddess, the Lover and the gifted Medicine Woman we are immediately shut down. This has caused havoc with our sense of self-love and self-worth. It has also created competition with our own sisterhood of women as we try and fight for our position, worth, love and acceptance outside of ourselves. These aspects of self are far deeper than we realise, as we are collectively carrying wounds from our mothers and grandmothers (We are an egg inside our mother at the very time she is a growing fetus inside our grandmother). So literally we are carrying the DNA or the wounding that our grandmothers experienced in their lifetime.
If you go back a few hundred years women were made to turn against each other to spare their lives during the horrific times of the witch trials. This struggle lays at the core of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual beings and then is compounded by the society we live in. Trying to fit ourselves into this box that has been defined for us is an incredibly hard thing to do, especially when collectively we are being awakened to the truth that there is more.
How would you say you are helping women tune into their sensuality and sexuality through Untamed Goddess?
Our sexuality is a powerhouse of healing, awakening, and creativity at every level. It directly impacts the quality of life that we experience. Our sexuality and our sexual energy are filled with power and potency when used in a Divine expression. Its a portal for our connection into our physical and spiritual bodies, and it has the intensity to allow us to manifest a life of joy, love, and bliss. Tuning in to this energy tunes you in your core self, your authentic self, your values and your radiance. I am helping women activate this within themselves by opening doors that may begin this journey of remembering, at the same time as helping them to release the energetic blocks that are trapped in their bodies that are keeping them stuck.
I invite women to look deeper into themselves to uncover what lies hidden underneath. Before we were made to conform to an ideal of what it means to be a woman, there was a time when sexual women ruled the world. They were independent, empowered and embodied love. Their energy flowed through every crevice of the earth with the capacity to heal and restore. The traits of these women are within us all. If we are open to uncover the truths that lay hidden underneath and work through the blocks, then we can access the gifts that will tune us into our potent power.
Can you talk us through what has been your most seminal point since launching Untamed Goddess?
As a guide and facilitator of the Divine Feminine, I continue to allow myself to embody the work that I share. It’s a constant spiral of refining. It’s a continuous journey of discovery. One that if we are open, allows us to reach in and find what the truth of life, of freedom, of joy and of love means to us in every moment. As I have gone along my path of sharing my passions of Sacred Feminine embodiment, I have always felt deep down that there was more, something that made my offering unique. I knew I had the gift of awakening women and men back to the Divine, but I was yet to uncover the path that was deeply and truthfully authentic to me. This last spiral has brought my soul gift entirely to the light and has to be my most seminal point since launching Untamed Goddess.
The Goddess is calling me to express her through opening up and sharing her most pure and potent life force energy that runs through the core of our existence, our sexuality! All of the pieces of the puzzle of my life, all of my experiences have suddenly slotted together. Everything I have been through in this and past lifetimes has brought me to where I am now. As I surrendered, I have awakened to the truth that the gift of our sexuality is how we can start to create this new paradigm, of a balanced masculine and feminine planet that is so desperately needed.
The most rewarding moment in your personal life?
This would have to be the birth of my sons. They are my tribe! They have come here to teach me many lessons and at the same time have chosen me to be their guide-ess. I have the opportunity to guide them into the new paradigm of an awakened conscious masculine embodiment on our planet. We are drowning in a sea of unhealthy sexuality and sexual expression that is impacting everything around us. Our children are being influenced, and their realities are being shaped by a distorted view, of love, intimacy and relating to the opposite sex. I am deeply called to be a part of a movement that will shape their future.
Have you ever had a mentor? If so how has this benefited you to grow?
Yes, I have had many mentors. Each one has brought something uniquely valuable to my path. They say we are the sum of the 5 people that we spend the most time around. Having a mentor and guide as you evolve and grow I feel is essential. It has helped me to stay on track. It has helped me to continue to work through the cyclical path of my own healing and remembering.
Even when we stand in a position of leader or facilitator, there are parts of our higher self that we still can not fully witness. My mentors have always provided that unconditional love and accountability ensure I continue to seek the truth and to reach my highest potential.
What outlets do use to market Untamed Goddess?
I use word of mouth, influencer collaboration, Facebook, Instagram and targeted events where I can network.
Which methods are you using to build your audience and expand your network?
I am currently building my audience and expanding my network through education and awareness. Providing valuable content and information, guidance and a safe community for people to explore and expand through my closed FB group. I also have a book club, for women who find that within their circle of friends they are inspired and reading books that they aren’t able to share and talk about to the depths that they would like too. I am also about to launch a free 28 day ‘Love Your Sexuality’ journey to invite women to activate what lies within.
What is the best piece of advice you have received to date?
We are all on our own journey, that is unfolding at the perfect time in the perfect way. When you stop comparing yourself to others and trust the process, your life will take on a whole new meaning of rhythm and flow.
What is the number 1 critical lesson you have learned since building Untamed Goddess?
That nothing is fixed in stone, that I need to allow for change and evolution. That there are always going to be people that don’t agree or resonate with my message and what I am doing, but that I need to stay true to my heart. When things don’t go to plan, we have the choice to criticise ourselves and judge ourselves, or we can learn from the experience. We can harness that excitement and plough through the doubt.
There may be times when we don’t feel quite ready to birth something, but we are still called to it. Sometimes the world might not be quite ready for your message or product, but with faith and courage and a sense of adventure and curiosity in our hearts, we can take steps every day to break boundaries and push past our fears.
How do you create an evenly balanced work and personal life?
Being a conscious mother of my five little boys, supporting and guiding their mental, emotional and physical needs at the same time as building my business can be quite a challenge for me. I work on ensuring that when I am with them I am fully present in their lives. I won’t work until they have gone to bed or before they get up.
When I have any free time I ensure that I spend time on nurture and self-care to ensure that I have enough in my cup to give to my family and my clients. I feel it comes down to being aware of what you personally need to stay connected and grounded in yourself.
Which other leading entrepreneurs and leading female pioneers do you also admire and why?
Sabrina Lynn Domenosky – She is the founder of Rewilding for Woman and has been a guide and mentor to me throughout my whole journey. She is a pioneering voice in this work. Marianne Williamson, her message, and fierce but unconditionally loving presence are what will bring us back to our truth.

What does success look like in your eyes?
I was been brought up to believe that you gained freedom through success in business and the financial rewards that came with that. I spent my entire 20’s striving and achieving this before I got ill. On the outside, it looked like I had this notion of happiness and freedom. However, I had completely lost touch with who I was.
My soul longed for deeper meaningful connections and love. I continually looked outside of myself for validation, seeking what I thought I was missing from my intimate relationships, my friendships, and my family. I learned that instead of hoping for and seeking love outside myself I could be love and allow the life force of the Universe to flow through me. Trusting my own inner authority and wisdom to keep me grounded and peaceful in my heart no matter what the outside circumstances.
I learned that freedom is a state of mind, and not what conditioning and society had told me it was or should look like. My freedom came from following my soul’s true purpose in this lifetime. Success to me is to feel and live my deepest hearts yearning and soul purpose, a life that is 100% my authentic path and truth.
What does #BEYOUROWN mean to you?
It is a path of the ‘Wayfinder’. The pioneer that is expressing her creativity and passions with the world in whatever expression that may be. In the words of the Dali Lama, ‘The world will be saved by the Western woman’ This is a powerful statement that holds so much deeper meaning. As we step into #BEYOUROWN, we will awaken and inspire the hearts and minds of other inspiring women who can help to make an impact on the world.
Lastly, what is next for you and Untamed Goddess?
This year is going to be an exciting breaking of new ground for me and Untamed Goddess. After my focus on building awareness and educating I will be hosting events and retreats for men and women to come and explore and experience the power of healing and awakening, their sexuality and sexual expression hold for them. I am incredibly excited to be adding a certification in spiritual, sexual healing and awakening to my body of work.
It will allow me guide and heal men and women in releasing sexual wounds, past relationship trauma, and sexual conditioning. As well as awakening the power and potency of life force in the lower chakras. Complementing my practice of Sacred Feminine embodiment through these events, retreats and online offerings, I will work with the Goddesses and Gods of sacred sexuality and healing.
To bring awareness, healing, and purification internally to any distortions of the Sacred Feminine and Masculine. Bringing reverence to sexuality as a tool for healing health issues and bringing a greater sense of self-love, acceptance, and worth. As well as activating new paths of using this sacred power to awaken creativity and bring healing to personal relationships and professional en devours.
