We Welcome You to Sacred Space

News of the Women’s March planned for Saturday, January 21, 2017 spread across Facebook like wildfire. I first planned to go to Washington D.C.but after searching for an affordable hotel room or Air BnB and coming up empty, I decided maybe my efforts would be better utilized closer to home. I evaluated the best way to make an impact with the movement and discovered the perfect way to expend my energy: Self, Home/Family, School, Community, City, State, Country, World. As a busy mom who is self-employed, I had to prioritize my focus and work with my energy in a way that was sustainable and collaborative.

Five days before the March, I had a brilliant idea. I contacted the organizers of the event and asked if I could create a “pop-up” Goddess Temple on site and invoke the Great Mother at the beginning of the March. Unbelievably, they said YES to the Temple! They welcomed me to offer an Opening Prayer and Call the Directions just outside the Temple before the Women’s March began.

Saturday morning, my little brother, my daughter, and one of my priestesses-in-training arrived super early to the downtown location where the March would begin. We got to work, each of us contributing to this community effort. We set up an altar at the back of the Temple featuring one of our most ancient Goddesses, Inanna, nestled on an elevated platform, the table draped in a rich purple and gold altar cloth. Tall, thin, wooden praying priestesses flanked the centerpiece with candles shining across the surface. FullSizeRender (1)

At another table, We created a Cleansing Station with holy water that I blessed and scented with essential oils designed to clear the energetic field. A ceramic pot with fragrant dried lavender and cedar sat ready with the feathers used to smudge people.
Another station displayed instructions to use Flying Wish paper to write intentions, prayers, and wishes and set them on fire, watching them burn up and float magically into the air, leaving only wisps of ash!

Make a Wish Station

After hanging strands of jewels and placing a Welcome sign out front, we were ready to circle up and call on Spirit.  FullSizeRenderThe circle of women and men, mothers and daughters that gathered for prayer were many more that I expected. I asked a friend to help us sing the Cheyenne Water Blessing song the women sing and many sang during the fight protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. My friend had asked how we in Kansas City could support their efforts and they said, “Sing our prayers with your people.”We drummed and sang then prayed together for the leadership in our country and around the world. We prayed for the hearts and the conscious minds of all of our leaders. Then we sang to each Direction and called each Element while casting a circle of Love. I was so overcome feeling the presence of Spirit that I half-cried, half-sang the Call. After all 7 directions were called, we vibrated with so much energy, I was shaking! A friend suggested we give all that energy to the crowd and we did-all 10,000 of them! It was exhilarating!

Goddess Temple at the Women’s March in Kansas City January 21, 2017

We talked with hundreds of people about the Goddess that day and helped mothers with their children to light their wishes. My priestess-in-training smudged people for hours! We prayed with people, sang with people, cried with people…we couldn’t help but ask ourselves, “What would it be like to have an actual Goddess Temple?” The opportunity to serve our community in that way was so powerful and rewarding. It lit up my soul purpose, activating a vision of pop-up temples all over Kansas City, visiting regional festivals and offering people a sacred space to gather and feel the warmth and comfort of the Divine Mother. It wasn’t until Beltane* weekend that I allowed myself to imagine the True Vision…a permanent Temple of the Goddess in the heart of Kansas City.

40% of Americans describe themselves as spiritual but not religious. Communities are leaving churches in droves as people seek a more authentic connection with their spirits, faith, and something greater than themselves. We know that our current modern culture and pace does not support peaceful, soul-centered living. People are more stressed, more anxious, more depressed, and more isolated than ever before. How would our lives be different if we had a place to congregate with one another, showing up soul-to-soul, heart-to-heart, in our personal spiritual truth? How would our children feel, supported by a community of women of all ages, sharing their life wisdom in the way our grandmothers used to? How would the mothers feel, knowing they are not isolated and alone in the challenges of mothering but lovingly held by wise women mentoring them through various stages of life? What if we eliminated sin and sinner from the conversation and replaced it with the message of Beloved Child of God/Goddess?


Jesus Calling the Children to Him, this is the way I was raised!


My Beloved Children

We need the Return of the Great Mother. It’s time to live in right relationship with the Mother Earth, She Who Gives so freely everything that we need: our food, our water, our shelter, our clothes, our cars, gas to power our vehicles, our medicine, plants, herbs, supplements. Everything comes from the Earth and we no longer disregard Her unconditional love and support, Her constant giving without acknowledging the Source of All Life as this Divine Feminine power. We look to the natural rhythms in nature to harmonize our businesses, our families, our education, our medicine. How has Mother Nature existed and sustained life on Earth all this time? She is constantly evolving and changing, adjusting according to the ebb and flow of Life Force Energy on the planet. She knows the secrets to Life itself and will share them easily with those who will listen and open their hearts. Let us gather together as Her precious children and heal ourselves as we heal our world.  Women's March 2017

*Beltane is an ancient solar Holy Day celebrating fertility, fire, and Sacred Union between God and Goddess.

The Ego and The Soul, The Caterpillar and the Butterfly

The Ego and The Soul, The Caterpillar and the Butterfly

Any time we embark on a spiritual journey with a personal commitment to discover our soul truth, our ego FREAKS OUT! The ego’s job is to keep you in a comfort zone, actively using all your unconscious and subconscious coping mechanisms. The ego takes its job very seriously-it is the source of your Identity here on Planet Earth. The trick is to allow the ego to serve the heart and soul. That is how to keep it in right alignment.

The moment you make your Commitment, your “stuff” may start to get kicked up. As the facilitator of the Temple of the Goddess Mystery School, I continually refine and refine my own life and experience to release trappings of the fear-mind. I am able to work through the layers of my own story, aligning myself with my personal truth at deeper levels of my subconscious and conscious mind. It doesn’t make the work any less work! But the awareness of what I gain personally as I claim and express my soul truth unencumbered by a self-imposed cage of limitation serves as a comforting guide to my own process.

When a caterpillar feels it is time, she begins to process of weaving her chrysalis around her. She spins her cocoon and settles in for metamorphosis. She does not ask how long it will take, nor does she know what she will encounter. She exists in the cocooned state. She begins to generate her butterfly self through imaginal cells. I love it! These imaginal cells vibrate at a different frequency than the caterpillar cells and so, unfamiliar with this new vibration, the caterpillar’s immune system perceives them as the enemy and attacks them, successfully fighting them off. Or so she thinks…enough of the butterfly cells survive the attack and link together to mount another attack. As Norie Huddle writes in her book Butterfly:

These new imaginal cells continue to appear. More and more of them! Pretty soon, the caterpillar’s immune system cannot destroy them fast enough.  And then an amazing thing happens! The little tiny lonely imaginal cells start to clump together, into friendly little groups. They all resonate together at the same frequency, passing information from one to another. The clumps of imaginal cells start to cluster together!… A long string of clumping and clustering imaginal cells, all resonating at the same frequency, all passing information from one to another there inside the chrysalis.”

The battle between the caterpillar self (the old form) and the butterfly self (the new form) results in the caterpillar dissolving into total mush. The butterfly actually feeds on the caterpillar mush until the strength of this new vibration overtakes the old and the butterfly fully forms. The chrysalis, described as “an enclosing shell that limits the caterpillar’s freedom for the duration of the transformation” (Anodea Judith, Waking the Global Heart) serves its purpose as Ground Zero of her metamorphosis. Her struggle is not yet complete, however, for now, she must break out of the comfort of her cocoon. And so it is with the Temple of the Mystery School container. You are in the cocoon. Your Feminine Power and personal truth are contained in your own imaginal cells. Your limiting beliefs, perceptions of lack and self-worth, deepest inner fears, and life-long coping mechanisms are held within your caterpillar self. The inner battle you experience is simply due to the introduction of the new vibration. You will battle yourself. You will resist the transformation. But at some point, your old belief systems become the food that feeds your new perspective as your imaginal cells strengthen and devour your old way of thinking. Your butterfly self is ready to emerge.

It is said that if you help the butterfly out of her cocoon, she will die. The struggle of Emergence is part of the process, for it forces air into her wet wings so that she is able to fly. “The pushing forces enzymes from the body to wing tips…strengthening the wing muscles, and reducing body weight allowing it to fly. This process started with struggle and ended with the butterfly flying the moment it came out of the cocoon.” (Nutrition for Mental Health).

My best advice during this transformational time is to Be Present to your own self, loving and nurturing yourself throughout the struggle. I encourage you not to resist but to surrender to it while trusting yourself to emerge as the Beautiful Butterfly! With love and blessings within your chrysalis…Kim.

What is a Priestess?

A Priestess is a woman dedicated to her sacred work, clearly connected with her soul purpose.  She listens deeply to the voice of her spirit and lives in harmony with herself and others. She gathers wisdom from every challenge and sees them as golden opportunities for growth. She dives deeply into her subconscious mind, always seeking understanding as she unlocks her own Great Mystery. She lives in harmony with the Earth and honors the bounty of abundance that the Great Mother shares with all of us. She activates healing through love of self, love for others, for our planet and all Life. She listens. She hears. She assimilates.  She dances with the light and the dark, balancing the shadow and the light of her being.

She uses everything she has, all her gifts, talents, connections and resources and honors all of it. She serves her family and community. She holds the vibration of her infinite and eternal spirit with ease, while staying firmly rooted in the energies of Earth. She exists as a clear resonant field which others may sense and discover their own clear path to connecting with their spirit selves, to remember what they are at the soul level. She honors the feminine and the masculine as equal energies contributing to the whole. She is empowered from the spark of light within and does not look outside of herself for approval. She loves herself through her fears, accepts herself and her perceived “weaknesses” and honors all of it for the brilliant gift of life it is. She easily holds a space of non-judgment, honoring all expressions as a vibration, frequency, archetypal pattern, system, specific energetic flow… She is crystal clear in her discernment, unafraid of “rocking the boat” for the sake of truth and justice. She is the pure expression of her Soul Self, reflecting multiple lifetimes filled with challenges, opportunities, loves lost and gained, lessons about power, manipulation and clarity, forever seeking out and claiming more of who she is as she travels the Earth Path again and again.

She allows for all possibilities. She does not limit the lens through which she perceives Life.

She understands the quantum nature of reality and consciously chooses to be present on Earth, here and now, while connected to her infinite and eternal soul, Star Family, Ancestors, Spirit Guides, Angelic Team, higher dimensional beings offering support and assistance while anchoring on Earth with lovers, friends, family, colleagues and community. She does not value the Above more than the Below, Heaven more than Earth, God more than Goddess. She values the mundane as the magical, in harmony with the creation that exists all around her and within her.

She is a Ceremonialist, creating ceremony to honor the Turning of the Wheel, the Solar Holy Days, the Lunar Cycles, bridging Heaven and Earth within her own body to bring healing lovelight to the Earth and Her people. In harmony with the cycles of Life, Death, Rebirth and the Void, she feels these rhythms in her own spirit and intuitively creates Living Ceremony to honor the passage of time and the gathering of personal wisdom through physical, spiritual and emotional  experience.

She trusts herself and the deep wisdom flowing within her that is her birthright.

Women’s Spiritual Health

Mission: To position Women’s Spiritual Health as the foundation for mental and physical health.

The Path: Empowering women to nurture personal spiritual health as we support our children and families.

The Lost Tribe of Women: We stand here today because of the lineage of Women’s Wisdom that have kept our children and families alive and healthy. Each woman holds within her keys to healing ourselves, our children and our society. Uncovering our own intuitive wisdom is central to the emergence of Feminine Power that is rising all across our planet. We can do this by setting the intention to Awaken our Feminine Power and nurture our deepest inner knowing. But we cannot do this alone. We need a supportive community, a network of Awakening Women so that we do not wind up feeling isolated, overwhelmed and lost. We are meant to live as a tribe but modern society does not support this way of living so we find ways to recreate community connections that will nourish and sustain us.

Ancient Ways for Modern Times: Ritual and Ceremony* are the backbone of society. As more people describe themselves as spiritual but not religious, the need for non-dogmatic ways of connecting with our soul selves comes to the fore. Women, sometimes without knowing it, create specific rituals for their families around birthdays and holidays. We are masters of ceremony when we hostess baby showers, bridal showers, even bachelorette parties! Learning how to create rituals for ourselves and others can strengthen our spiritual health as we strengthen our families and our community.

Some of the ancient ways that are re-emerging in this modern time are Rites of Passage Ceremonies. These include BlessingWay Ceremony, Child of Earth Baby Blessing, Completion Ceremony (at age 9) and First Moon Ceremony, New Moon Ceremony and Full Moon Ceremony, just to name a few. 

*A Ritual is a set of actions performed for symbolic value and a Ceremony is an official gathering to celebrate some life event.

Ways to Nurture Women’s Spiritual Health

Women create our feel-good hormone, oxytocin, by speaking and being heard. This is why women feel rejuvenated after venting to a close friend or ally. Creating safe, sacred space for women to share and be heard, without judgment or criticism, is vital to our spiritual health and well-being. We can nurture our spirits by:

  • Learning to nourish ourselves by asking, “What do I need right now?” and resolving to provide it to ourselves.
  • Tending to our personal energetic field. Building and strengthening the aura, releasing energies that do not belong to us, becoming willing to receive, developing healthy personal boundaries.
  • Learning tools to keep our souls in alignment with our physical existence.
  • Coming together in circles of women. Drum, dance, sing, share, prayer.
  • Creating safe space for ourselves and other women by identifying the voice of the Inner Critic and learning techniques to silence it.
  • Validating our intuition and learning how to tell the difference between the voice of the heart and the voice of the mind.
  • Honoring our monthly cycles as a powerful, magical time in which we can shed that which we no longer need and receive what we do need.
  • Teaching our children self-care by taking care of ourselves.
  • Learning more about our specific soul path through astrology, life purpose numbers, past lives and intuitive readings.
  • Learning the cycles and rhythms in nature and how to honor our own natural cycles and rhythms.
  • Developing and sustaining our connection with Mother Earth and with our own bodies.
  • Healing shame and low self worth. Reclaiming our worth as Women of Earth.
  • Trusting our gut when it comes to mothering our children.
  • Being GOOD ENOUGH.
  • Validating ourselves and others through kindness to self and others.
  • Opening our hearts to love and pleasure while releasing fear and pain.
  • Embracing sacred sexuality as our birthright.

Women’s Wisdom Workshops

Teach what you know! We all know something. It feels AMAZING to be able to share your passion, your hobby, your wisdom with others seeking to learn, grow and expand. What have you always wanted to learn? Many women feel pulled toward things such as crystals, stones, herbs, dream symbols, animal symbols, natural healing techniques, meditation, chakras, auras, angels, spirit guides, past lives, etc. but either deny the inner calling or feel they don’t have time to learn about such things. Value your inner calling. Value your interests and feed them. This is how to feed your spirit: by listening to your Wild Wise Woman Self and honoring her. This keeps us juicy, alive, inspired! rather than drained, overwhelmed and stagnant.

The Big Picture

Ultimately, my dream is to create or support a Women’s Spiritual Health Center complete with classes, workshops, events, child care, community cooking, Full Moon Circles and holistic healing services. Rites of Passage Ceremony are scheduled as needed for our community. We support Conscious Birth, Conscious Parenting, Conscious Communication (for couples) and Conscious Death. This central hub for women’s health and healing dispatches priestesses to tend to women and families in times of need. It serves as a training center for women to explore their innate soul gifts, develop them and eventually, share them with the community. We establish a reputable Women’s Resource Network listing quality, reliable healers, doctors, counselors, teachers, midwives, doulas, herbalists, sitters, etc. and the services they provide. This network serves as a curated list based on first person recommendations who have had actual interactions with providers. The creative arts: music, dance, writing, film, poetry (and more!)  are celebrated and supported. All cultures, religions, and traditions are respected and valued for the Light they offer. The opportunity to explore various spiritual pathways in a safe and sacred space, with a community of conscious women and their families, and to speak about personal soul paths is the foundation of the center. And so it is!

Trump, Shame and Feminine Power

I interpret the happenings in the world through signs and symbols, lending a mystical perspective to everything in my personal life and in the world at large. So when Trump was elected by the electoral college, I searched through my own shock and horror to find some shred of meaning in this strange turn of events. I landed on his lack of shame regarding his statement: “And when you’re a star they let you do it. Grab them by the pussy, you can do anything.” REALLY??!!! I thought about my own shame around being called a witch because I am a Priestess. I thought about how I would take my bindi off my third eye when I was headed into Target or going to pick my son up from preschool. I didn’t want the other moms to think I was weird nor did I want to draw unnecessary attention. I thought about the struggle I have had explaining to my own mother what my spiritual beliefs are and how I know I’m not going to hell because of my choices. I shrank myself. I played small out of fear of what people would think. I hid.

No more.

What I have learned from Donald Trump is how not to hold shame for who and what I am. If this man, this mysoginist, racist, immature, chaotic lunatic can be elected to the highest office in the land and literally have NO SHAME for his actions, words and behavior, why am I over here worrying about what the other moms will think?? I have never intentionally hurt anyone. I have never tried to block anyone’s path-I exist to SUPPORT each soul’s path on the planet. I have no evil skeletons in my closet.

Guess what? I am a witch. But not in terms of the Merriam Webster definition which suggests evil doings or an affiliation with Wicca. I am not Wiccan. The root for the word “witch” is “to wick, or to bend.” I apply this to the way I work with my own mind and manifesting reality. I can bend my perspective, I can work with energies and move them in beneficial ways, I can transform myself, ever-evolving into more love, compassion, and understanding. I connect with the elements in nature and call to them, humbly asking their assistance in healing and strengthening myself and others. There is no shame in the way I work with intention.

I am a Priestess of the Goddess.”Made in the image of the Creator, male and female, God created them.” God contains both energies-the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine. I grew up loving God, loving Jesus, having a close personal relationship with the Heavenly Father and His Son. In 2000, I discovered the Divine Feminine, a concept I had never heard of but immediately recognized in the fabric of my being as holy, sacred, and calling to me in a way I could not deny.

So on this day, when the transfer of power goes from our first African American president, a Visionary Servant of the people, to a man who serves only himself, I am firmly rooted in my Feminine Power, without shame, without hiding, without shrinking myself. Thank you, Donald Trump, for galvanizing the Divine Feminine Movement, for awakening the Sleeping Giant that is the mothers, the women, the children, the conscious people of Earth who will not allow this tyranny, this oppression, this madness to go on unchecked. We are awake. And we are taking appropriate action to protect the women, children and families you intend to harm.
