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.

Divine Purpose in Times of Shadow

I believe in Divine Purpose. This belief has pulled me through the death of my father as a young girl, the loss of my sweet precious MeMa, soul-crushing depression, divorce, getting laid off from my super profitable corporate job, and the molestation of my baby boy. And this belief is pulling me through this time in our country in which the popular vote elected our first woman president and the antiquated electoral college elected a man who is on record admitting that he sexually assaults women because you can do that if you’re rich and famous.

I’m listening to a story on the radio this morning where a female reporter is in Kandahar, Afghanistan, stronghold of the Taliban, speaking to young girls. Young girls determined to obtain their education. Young girls unafraid of acid being thrown on their faces for going to school. Young girls stating that the oppressive power cannot eradicate their inner light. This is what we are called to do and to be. I bring light here…light unencumbered by my fear…light that will never waver, never falter, never stop shining. We can all make the decision NOW to connect with the Light of the Divine Source in our hearts and radiate it into the hearts of humanity, send it into the hearts of all leaders, send it into all structures, all systems, all governments. If you are wondering what to do now that Trump is the president-elect, it is this: SHINE YOUR LIGHT. Shine your light in the way that you are called to shine it. It could be through individual conversations with other mothers, with your children, your lover, your friends. It could be marching in protest. It could be running for office yourself. It could be prayer and meditation. However you are called to show up, show up in all your glory!

There is purpose in this. This election is lighting the inner fire in the hearts of women and their supporters across the nation and the world. We can make Divine Purpose out of this by consciously choosing to create the world we envision. Now is not the time to lose hope. Now is the time to see solutions, to engage in our democracy, to make our voices heard however uncomfortable that might be. This is not about hatred-nothing good can come from hate. But just as a mother guides her children with fierce love and strong boundaries, so must we guide our local, regional and national governments with that same determination. We choose to come together now, no longer isolated in our own thoughts and belief systems. We come together as Women of Earth and we claim our Divine Feminine Power as Change Agents all across the planet. “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” AND SO IT IS!

Anchoring the Light

I call on all Beings of Light, both physical and ethereal, to help me in anchoring the good.

Anchoring the Light

 

I’m sure that if I’m feeling the waves of despair, sadness, hopelessness and righteous anger over the horrific shooting in Orlando over the weekend, that many other conscious people are feeling it too. I tried to block the news as I was in the Chicago area to celebrate my buddy’s wedding this past weekend and I was fairly successful until we returned home. The night after we returned from our trip, I drove my teenage daughter to work then went to get gas, listening, as I  often do, to NPR.

I lost it.

Overwhelming grief completely took over and I cried and cried, allowing myself to feel the pain in my heart for this world we live in, this violence enacted by one crazy human, and I have to tell you, it was almost too much. I want to insulate. I don’t want to hear Donald Trump’s opinion about anything, much less this tragedy. I don’t want to watch the media work its angle of divisiveness, exploiting every opportunity to trigger various sides of debate: gun control, terrorism, Muslims, gay rights, Democrats, Republicans. This is NOT the world we live in, despite the efforts made to separate us from each other. There is a collective voice of conscious human beings who want PEACE. We intend to live in harmony with each other. We seek to discover the places within each of us that unite us, not divide us. We refuse to believe that the world is this ugly, this hate-filled, this scary. Because it isn’t. I was wrapped in a bubble of love and celebration, participating in a beautiful wedding ceremony Sunday. We danced, we ate, we drank, we created an energetic field of pure goodness, anchoring the light on Earth, without even knowing how powerful, necessary and meaningful this energy would be to the cosmic consciousness. It occurred to me Monday that, around the world, pockets of celebration, of joy, of love and laughter are happening ALL THE TIME. Yes, tragedy is happening too. But I cannot focus on all the horrors of the world and expect to keep myself centered in the good, emanating Light, Hope, Faith, Love, Compassion and Understanding. I have an obligation to myself, my family, the people I love (and I love EVERYONE!) to keep myself from being pulled under by the despair wreaking havoc across our planet.

My son just turned six. Every night, we say prayers. His sweet innocence, praying to God, saying, “Let all people be protected and safe, let the world be safe” is so precious me. Even at his young age, he knows what is important. He doesn’t know what happened this past weekend because he doesn’t need to know. I’ll keep him protected from these horrors as long as I possibly can. His prayers ignite something in me: Peace Over Power. Peace Over Power. Peace Over Power. I silently pray beside him, generating light from my heart and sending it to all the people of Earth. I wrap the whole Earth in this lovelight, whispering peace into the hearts of our leaders, hidden and known. I sense the outpour of heart-centered compassion flooding from so many who were touched by this tragedy. I choose to anchor the light on this planet, to see the good, despite the fact that all that is right and beautiful in the world is rarely televised. I, who live in a comfortable home, with a loving family, have a duty to walk in peace and amplify the vibration of peace into the places of shadow and pain. I call on all Beings of Light, both physical and ethereal, to help me in anchoring the good, to bring peace to conflict, to show kindness in every moment, to take conscious action to create the world we dream of living in and to celebrate the good that is in our lives. Our collective vibration can lift the hopelessness, the sadness, the grief and create a path forward into our peaceful future. It’s all we really want. Peace.
