The Healing Journey

“I remember having a victim mentality where I felt like I did not deserve anything good in life due to all of the abuse I endured. I kept waiting for something bad to happen when something good took place and was always in disappointment mode when the bad overcame the good. I did not realize that I was putting all of this negative energy into the universe, and that it was my negative spirit that made those I cared for distance themselves from me because I was putting a damper on their day by the way I was living, thinking and speaking. I would sound like a broken record with repetitive crap coming out of my mouth because it was an addiction of being bitter and angry with the life I did not realize I was creating. It wasn’t until the love of my life explained to me in the most loving way of how negative I was becoming and how I was allowing life to pass me by with no sense of purpose, peace or happiness. Finally, I had decided that I had to make change happen within myself and that no one can do it for me. I chose to go through my process of healing, acceptance, self forgiveness for how I had affected others by my own hurt and pain, as well learning to embrace my faults, flaws and imperfections in order for the true Dhylles to come out and introduce herself to the world. It is amazing when one changes their frame of thinking how such a shift can take place within. But you have to be ready and willing with an open mind, heart and spirit. I was willing because I no longer wanted to live this way with such a pure numbness inside that it had prevented me from feeling love and compassion for myself. I love myself so much more than I ever did before, and I am still a work in process, but I can honestly say that I absolutely love my life and what I am creating for my future.”

Maya Goddess Juices

10470809_406982646117549_6590479447245819964_n Beauty comes from within. No wonder why “juice expert” Maya Chambers, who is a wellness coach, visionary and founder of Maya Goddess, exudes so much beauty. When we met for the first time in the West Village at Think Coffee, I knew right away who was responsible for creating Maya Goddess. Tall & sleek with a short ‘do, strong eyes with an inviting smile, a bold color red on her lips that just so happened to match the same hue on her nails, vibrant skin; beauty emanated from her. I introduced myself with confidence knowing that this was in fact Maya.


While we were on line choosing our style of hydration, (she chose cold and refreshing water, I chose a hot herbal tea,) Maya quickly apologized for pushing back the meeting time so that she could deliver a juice to one of her clients. Of course it did not cause a problem with me, I was super impressed. Like, hello she hand delivers… couldn’t wait to hear more.

Maya Goddess Juices

After finding a nice semi-quiet spot (it took a minute, we are in NYC after all) we sat, sipped and chatted for what seemed like minutes but were more like hours. This is when I discovered that her outer beauty was a reflection of her inner beauty.

Intrigued in how Maya Goddess came about we took it back, way back. Maya is a lovely blend of Latina roots. The women before her came from the islands of Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Spain and Turks & Caicos, a Goddess for sure. However, the inspiration, the guidance and so much more came from her mother, aunt, and abuela (grandmother.) Maya was raised by three naturally beautiful women who were strong and educated; all having master degrees…even abuelas mom, Nana, she was the first Puerto Rican female teacher. Can we say ‘Wow’, definitely picking up the sense that Maya had a very empowering environment in which she was brought up in. No wonder why, Maya says

“Education is key, awareness is key…be that vessel, spread the awareness.”
