Like every yogi fashionista’s fine collection of gemstones and sacred silk scarves, a girl has got to have her go-to group of gal pals to lean on. From the wild haired bestie you’ve known since you were crackling pop rocks in grade five to the golden goddess you went road tripping with in college, we’ve all got a special collection of friends who help us through the peaks and valleys of life’s journey. There are a few types of magical boho friends that a girl has just got to have by her side to fulfill all of her auspicious dreams, create a life of wonder, and live completely fearlessly.
Here are the top five gal pals you should have in your life, right now!
The Big Dreamer
She’s writing her next novel, starring on a local television show, gets up every day at 5 a.m. and she’s seriously driven. This goddess has known her sweetest goals and aspirations since she was six, and she’s worked hard to make them a reality. She’s a staple in your life because she encourages all of your life’s hopes and dreams. She’s never jealous or catty, because she’s secure in her own dreams and trusts in yours.
The Soul Sister
You met her when you were a little girl and she’s pretty much your family. You could spend months, even years apart but your spirits are connected like sisters, so it never feels like it’s been long. You’re intuitively connected—she can tell when you’re feeling blue, and she knows how to make it right. If, by chance, you didn’t meet this gal long ago, the stars aligned when you met and you knew somehow that in another life you must have danced together barefoot on a beach somewhere. This goddess is a serious gem. She is your soul sister.
The Mama Bear
You go to her when mercury is in retrograde, you tell her all of your secrets, she’s your shoulder to cry on. This mama bear is wise beyond her years. She’s got all of the answers; from avocado cacao mousse recipes to the sacred stories of Kali, she knows it all. She’ll pick up the phone when no one else does (you’ve got her on speed dial.) She’s a special force to be reckoned with-she holds the moon up and keeps all of her besties safe.
The No Bull, A Type, Let’s Get This Done, I’m Talking Right Now, Kinda Gal
This fiery friend has your best interest at heart. She knows all of your magic and won’t take ‘can’t’ for an answer. She’ll tell you her loving, stone cold, honest truth, if she thinks it will help you achieve your highest potential. She doesn’t believe in ‘no’, and she’ll always find a way. She’s a light worker and power mama, who will have you help you to unveil anything that’s blocking you from seeing all that’s good in you.
The Barefoot Babe
This barefoot bella is your very best friend. You take her on all of your most magical adventures, throw dance parties with her below the honeymoon, and share secrets that are never told. This babe is your bestie because there’s a childlike wonder that’s unwritten between the two of you, which will never grow old! You both know that life is for unabashed, full-out living, and you do it together with arms wide open, face a-glow.
All friends are precious, just like the sacred Malas and stones with which we adorn ourselves. These are just a few of the rare and important types of gals you should have in your life to keep it whole, auspicious and full. I know you have a friend-type that helps you to stay sane and golden, and I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below!!
