Women and Anger

Many women don’t allow our anger. We invalidate ourselves or avoid it at all costs. Especially women following a spiritual path…somehow, we consider anger a “negative” emotion, when in fact, it is an emotion that can inspire us and motivate us. It can actually serve as fuel if we will allow ourselves to feel it  and take action that’s in alignment with our inner sense of justice. Women, we NEED our anger. We have every right to be angry. Unfortunately, we tend to either talk ourselves out of it, stuff it, invalidate it or lash out unexpectedly for no reason but it’s a delayed response to something that pissed us off.

Anger happens. It isn’t a choice. It can be a catalyst. But are we going to let the anger control us or are we going to control and direct it?

My husband says women can process anger better than men. But I don’t know that it’s being processed. It’s being shoved down. After I found out that my then 4-year-old son was molested, I lost my mind.  I screamed to the sky. I cried to my husband. I shook and I raged. But I didn’t know what to do with all of it. So I didn’t do much. I called Child Protective Services and reported it. I scheduled help for our son at the Sunflower House. I talked to my close friends, desperate to understand what had just happened. But the action I took felt like nothing compared to the intensity of my emotions. And so it burned me up. It boiled in my esophagus, felt like I drank a gallon of whiskey any time I ate so I couldn’t eat. I wanted to punch walls, punch the people who allowed this to happen. I found that I didn’t know how to feel the intensity of my rage without it burning me completely up so I misused it.

Misuse of Anger

  • Stuff it
  • Talk ourselves out of it
  • Invalidate the feeling
  • Scurry away from the feeling as quickly as we can
  • Lash out at someone close to us
  • Road rage
  • Become impatient with our kids, ourselves, our spouses
  • Eat rather than feel
  • Numb it with substances
  • Scrutinize ourselves to try and discover what’s lurking in our “shadow” that would cause us to be angry at another person and blame ourselves for our anger response. Introspection and misplaced accountability rather than simply acknowledging our anger
  • Blame ourselves somehow
  • Become apathetic
  • Convince ourselves that it doesn’t matter and nothing would change if we voiced our anger anyway
  • Allow it to fester until it becomes a physical dis-ease within ourselves
  • Fear of our own anger
  • Fear of losing control of ourselves
  • Fear that if we feel it, it will become completely unmanageable.

So what do we do with our anger? We need to take action. Let the anger galvanize us. I write in order to process my emotions. When I publish a piece for the public to read and it tells part of my story and what happened to my son and to me, I feel vindicated. I feel that I’ve told someone. I feel that at least I’m on record with the truth.

Validating my own anger, my own response rather than looking outside of myself for how I should feel and respond has been crucial to my process. How do we do this?

How to Work with Anger

  • Acknowledge what you are feeling.
  • Sit with it. Don’t try to rationalize it or talk yourself out of it.
  • It can be helpful to sit with your journal and write “I feel…”. Let it pour out.
  • Ask yourself what, if anything, you need to do. What action is the fire of anger calling for?
  • Let it inform you. Engage with it as a Messenger. What is your Anger here to tell you?
  • Find a safe space with a friend or family member to talk about what is bothering you. This person should be able to hold space for you without trying to talk you out of what you are feeling or make suggestions of what you “should” do.
  • Communicate. See Conscious Communication for great ways to prep for a conscious conversation.

We’ve got to learn how to work with our anger if we are to be empowered women. This isn’t about running around griping all the time or perceiving offenses that no one intended. But it is about working with anger as a fuel, a dynamic energy that can help us move forward on our path in way that values our emotions for the internal soul guidance they continually offer.

Full Moon in Aquarius

Happy Full Moon in Aquarius! There’s a partial lunar eclipse happening as I write this. Eclipses are acceleration points for the cosmic consciousness and the Aquarian energy is the archetype of the Visionary dedicated to uplifting the consciousness of humanity. As a soul with Aquarius Rising and the North Node also in Aquarius, I am the Visionary of the Visionaries, incarnated on Earth to serve as spiritual midwife to the people of the New Earth.

What is the Vision I am activating?

I call forth the collaborative team of Light Workers, Starseeds, visionary women, men, and children to come together in helping me build a Temple of the Goddess in the Heartland-Kansas City by 2022. I call forth the financial abundance, resources, the building, the land, the design, the permits, the lovers, artists, dancers, and musicians necessary to pull this Vision from the ethers into physical manifestation here in Earth. I see myself working with my creative team to do the work, step by step, to create this beautiful sacred space for all people seeking Spiritual Connection and Soul Truth to gather together in harmony on a regular basis as we affirm our birthright as co-creators with Divine.

The Temple of the Goddess is a place of healing, wholeness, and Holiness. It is a place of Ecstatic Dance and music. There is a Goddess Choir. There are Sunday morning services. There is a place for the children and a Director of Children’s Services who has her own team designed to serve the children.

We honor Rites of Passage from conception to transition through BlessingWay Ceremonies, Baptism in the Name of the Mother and the Father, Honoring Mother-Father-Children-Grandmother-Grandfather-Family, First Moon Ceremony for girls and Solar Initiation for our boys, Completion Ceremony (ages 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81 and beyond), Conscious Death Ceremony, Weddings, Unions, and Commitment Ceremonies whether with a partner or with Self, Shamanic Death ceremony when Life encourages us to let go and let die so something new can be born, Sacred Re-Birth Ceremony, Cleansing and Claiming Ceremony, Croning Ceremony for our Wise Women and Men, and always, Healing Ceremony for whatever we need for our precious spirits as we journey through our EarthWalk incarnation.

There are rooms for healing: herbal consultation, energy medicine, shamanic journey, sacred sexual healing, clearing the energy field, spiritual counseling, chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage. There are a couple of Sleep Rooms which are dark and cozy, comforting and nurturing so people can rest after an intense session or relaxing massage. There is a Library and a Wise Woman Librarian there to assist you in finding the resources you need to support you. There is a kitchen where we not only provide delicious healing teas and foods for our congregation, we also serve our hungry public by putting together food donation so no child, no woman, no man goes hungry. The Goddess will provide. There is a Meditation Garden with water flowing and plants, flowers, and medicine growing. There is a yoga-dance-movement studio for our sacred vessels to move and heal. There is a Glitter Room with art supplies and constant creation! There is always music.

There are Priestesses. Women fully connected to their Feminine Power are present to serve the people in every kind of way. Different Priestesses practicing their field of expertise offering support, guidance, resources, and connections. We are the hub for the Priestess Resource Network and able to dispatch Priestesses all over Kansas City in times of need. New mama? We send a Priestess. Family member dying? We send a Priestess. Super sick and alone? We send a Priestess. Received a scary medical diagnosis? We send a Priestess. Child with night terrors? We send a Priestess. Ghost in the house? We send a Priestess.

Mama Kim’s School of Magic and Medicine is headquartered at the Temple. There are always classes available so we can train the next generation of Priestesses and Shamans. What we don’t offer in house, we offer through our extensive network of holistic health clinics, reliable professionals in the fields of health, healing, finance, education, conscious businesses, environmental conscious organizations, non-profit resources-you name it, we know a trustworthy professional who can help you.

You drive by an enormous sculpture of the Goddess and She speaks to your heart immediately. You park your car and walk up to the Temple doors, path blooming with flowers and plants. You open the heavy, exquisitely carved wooden door laden with sacred symbols and enter. The candles are lit, the music is playing, the scent is comforting, luscious, and somehow familiar. A Priestess radiating pure love welcomes you and you feel safe and seen and nurtured. Welcome Home.

And so it is. Monday, August 7, 2017 with the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo. The Sun is linked with the Moon. The Moon is harmonizing with Jupiter, the planet of Opportunity and Expansion. The Moon is linked with Mars, essence of the Divine Masculine and the planet of Focus, Will, and Action. The Moon is cooperating with Saturn, the planet of Structure, Form, Foundation. Amamma! Blessed Be!

May 2017 Committed to Building the Temple of the Goddess in Kansas City

I created this resume for potential clients, partners, donors, and Mystery School students to have access to detailed information about my lineage, my teachers, mentors, and extensive training I have completed over the last 25 years. I have always been a counselor; assisting suicidal classmates who would secretly call me desperate for help in junior high eventually serving on a Teen Suicide Hotline in high school. Although I went to university to become a Theatre Arts teacher, God/Goddess had another plan for my life. Passionate about natural health and wellness, I sought herbal remedies for common ailments beginning in 1994 and have been gathering information and practicing herbalism ever since. I moved from Texas to Kansas City in September of 1997, intent on finishing my bachelor’s degree. After the birth of my daughter in 1999,  I helped establish the Kansas City Wellness Magazine and went on to co-publish The Red Fruit: A Woman’s Musepaper to serve the holistic health and spiritual wellness community with a focus on the Divine Feminine within us all. 

My life changed in 2000 when I met Kahla Wheeler, Susun Weed, and Chief Phil CrazyBull. The birth of my daughter was an absolute activation and the catalyst for me to remember why I incarnated here on Planet Earth. I was an apprentice, a student, an initiate for seven years and would have been content to quietly continue learning forever without ever stepping up to embody the Spiritual Guide I am in this lifetime and in many other lifetimes. When I was laid off from my job as City Marketing Director for Wild Oats on February 2, 2007, I knew it was time.

February 2nd is a Solar Holy Day in the Goddess Tradition and in earth-honoring spiritual traditions. Known as Imbolc or Candlemas, it is the Promise of the Return of the Light and signals an Initiation Cycle beginning. I was terrified but I knew what I was called to do. And I’ve been doing it ever since.

I work best with people who are already on a spiritual path, committed to their own Awakening, who need deep soul guidance they can intuitively trust and feel resonating in their energetic field. I work with mental and physical health professionals to address the soul root of many of the issues that manifest as anxiety, depression, common ailments, and illness. 

For more information about me, please visit www.KimMacy.com There you will find description of services as well as a link to my blog which outlines my spiritual beliefs and perspective. For more information about my teachers and mentors, please visit the websites provided.

I Didn’t Know

I didn’t know it was going to be like this…

I didn’t know that we were going to do this

I didn’t know that we weren’t going to do that

I didn’t know that it was going to be this deep, this painful, this illuminating, this exhilarating

I didn’t know that it was going to force me to look…

At myself

At my shadow

At my power

At my powerlessness

I didn’t know that it was going to kick up deep-seeded feelings of low self worth

I didn’t know I was going to feel stupid, ill-equipped, dumb, like a child

I didn’t know that it was going to hurt

I didn’t know if I could make it

I didn’t know if I could handle it

I didn’t even know if I wanted to.

But I do.

I want to know.

What is this Mystery that is me, that is the Earth, that is Power, that is Source, that is Container, that is Shadow, that is Following the Thread, that is the Trigger, that is the Gold, that is the Wound, that is the Medicine, that is the Wisdom?

My Wisdom.

My personal Medicine, the salve that heals my own wounds and may in turn help so many others.


I want to do the deep dive.

I want to plumb the depths of my soul in order to recover all the pieces of myself.

I embrace my wholeness, my Holiness, embrace the sacred in all things, including this piece and that trigger and this shadow.

For you are all my teachers.

And I honor you.

Why I LOVE RuPaul’s Drag Race

My daughter kept telling me about this show featuring drag queens, female impersonators who perform all over the world as gussied up, gorgeous versions of their selves. The first time I watched an episode with her, I thought the queens were too catty and bitchy with each other and literally couldn’t watch them be so petty with one another. But one episode hooked me. There is a part on every season of the show where they get to the final four contestants competing to be the top Drag Queen. RuPaul, in full glorious drag, pulls out a poster sized photo of the contestant at age 4 or 5 or 6 and asks each queen to speak to the little boy in the picture. This is totally Inner Child Soul Retrieval and part of the work I do with my clients. I bawl every single time. The Mama in me just wants these little babies to feel loved. So what if they’re effeminate? So what if they’re girly? So what if they’re different? Why is the world SO CRUEL to these boys? Do ya’ll realize that they kill themselves over this shit??

I love this show because in a world that forces everyone to fit in the tiniest, tightest box of “appropriate” self-expression, these bitches are fighting for their very lives. They are determined to not only BE who they are, but CELEBRATE who they are. And it is absolutely beautiful. They are creative and catty and funny. They are SURVIVORS. They made it through their horrible childhoods where they are belittled and rejected, kicked out by their parents, even abused by those who are supposed to love them and still, they find their way to Beauty and Expression. They are fearless.

The show inspires me every time I watch it. If these men who long to feel pretty and feminine can find a way to love their feminine side, surely we women can also find a way. Big, small, fat, skinny, young, old, funny, serious, smart, dumb-it doesn’t matter. Each queen transforms her insecurity and pain into entertainment, joy, pleasure, and laughter. GO GIRLS GO! I bow down to your courage and strength. Thank you for having the fire within you to show ALL of us how to love ourselves. Now sissy that walk…

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.
