We had the good fortune of connecting with Monique Wenhold and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Monique, as a parent, what have you done for you children that you feel has had the most significant impact?
The most important thing I have done for my daughter, is showing her that it is okay to be yourself and live your dreams (with some hard work in there too). There will always be people who doubt you, but as long as you believe in yourself, that is all that matters. If you have a calling to something, its for a reason. I also love that I am showing her, that you can make money doing what you love, and you dont have to go get a “good job”, you can be the one creating the “good job” for other people.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Moon Mama Magic was created to bring more magic, self empowerment and healing to people’s lives. I focus my business around helping people, and delivering messages from the other side, in a not so spooky way. I also hand craft products for your spiritual journey. It took me a while to truly find my own potential and magic, and now I’m on a journey to help others do the same through my business.
My business started with a lot of tears and fears of judgment, but I knew deep down, this was what I was meant to be doing, so I pushed past the doubt and went for it (trust your intuition). I have met so many wonderful people and gained so many friendships, which has been the highlight of my business. I love when a client, turns into a friend.
Tarot and Energy Healing (Reiki) can help you in so many ways. You will never regret getting your chakras aligned, finding healing, feeling empowered, getting that validation or message from spirit.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Im obsessed with coffee and I love local shops. The very first thing we are doing is waking up and going to grab a drink at either Velorio, Descent Coffee, Jasmin Jo Coffee or Provision, (Im brining a tarot deck so we can pull a few cards). I always love making a stop at the Pueblo, Phoenix Art Museum and visiting my favorite place in town, the Rosson House or getting a tattoo at Gypsy Rose Tattoo shop. We might also make a stop at Transcendence Life Center for yoga or a sound bath. For lunch and dinner we are visiting Verdura, Green New American Vegetarian, Earth Plant Based Cafe and La Grande Orange (LGO’s). For desert we have to visit Novel Ice Cream. We might do some shopping at Local Nomad or making a drive down to Tucson to visit The Ninth House.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I first want to thank my husband and friends, who have always supported me. I want to thank my daughter who has inspired me to live my truth, and be unapologetic for who I am. And a very big thank you to my clients and the people have supported me, and allowed me to live my dream.
