Phoebe Silva Strives To Make Every Action A Manifestation Of Love

Nice to have you today!  Tell us about your road to success

I’m still on that road! Maybe I will be my entire life... success to me means setting goals and working towards achieving them, so there’s never an end destination, that we keep ourselves motivated for our entire lives. For me, my current circumstances are a product of lots of time, experience, self-reflection, self-awareness and healing. I’ve been performing and creating my entire life. I’ve done so many things in so many places. It took me until I was 30 to really know myself. Now I’m liberated from previous constraints of trying to mold myself by other people's standards and expectations. It’s been hard and painful but so rewarding. I love the things I’m making now and am very proud of them.

If you could be in two places at one time, everyday...where would those places be?

On a remote tropical beach somewhere and also in the homes of my loved ones. I’m constantly torn between wanting to be alone and escape and adventure... and wanting to connect. I crave extremes. I need a lot of stimulation and a lot of alone time.

How do you get pumped up before a big event?

I pamper the hell out of myself. Take a couple hours to get ready. Luxuriate in showering, hair and makeup, feeling myself like crazy. Mediate or stretch. Speak lovingly to myself and pump myself up.

What is your mantra?

The only control I have is over my actions and choices. Also: we are only love. I strive to make every action a manifestation of love.
