I’ve been hearing from a lot of people this last week who are just plain burnt out. The latest surge in the pandemic, the after holiday blues, the cold of Winter, all seem to be taking their toll.
So what can we do?
How do we find hope? How do we refuel? How do we rekindle our flame without burning ourselves to a crisp?
A few simple suggestions:
Come back to yourself. Come back to the earth. Even in places where snow blankets the land, or the landscape is grey as far as the eye can see, there is medicine in the soil, in the bare trees in the animals that are making their way through this winter time.
Take moments outdoors, let your eyes reach toward the horizon and then intensely focus on things that are right up close. See if you can discover the beauty in the world around you.
Take a class. Is there something magical you have been wanting to learn more about? I bet there is a class to support this. There are many offerings out there catering to all the levels of learning and interests, as well as price points. (You’d be surprised how many free quality classes exist on the internet). This is a great time to deepen your practice by learning new skills. Having a place to focus your energy and mind on can really help to beat those winter blues. (I have several free classes available HERE for those who haven’t seen these yet)
Do some divination. Perhaps using the question “What would nourish me the most right now?” as your focus, spend some time with your cards or runes or scrying tools or pendulum and charts and dive into your inner wisdom.
How about some kitchen witchin? Make some medicine. Whether it’s elderberry syrup, tasty tea to support your wellness and warm you up, fire cider, or cooking up some delicious seasonal dishes (think root veggies and warm soups). Brew your intentions into the crafty creations you are mixing up.
The Priestess Path is opening its doors January 23rd. This year long journey has space for 12 wise ones, in this cohort.
We come together 2 times per month over 13 moons, learning foundational practices, then building on these with explorations into our inner realms, so we can harness that inner wisdom as we learn about magical tools and allies.
The entire voyage concludes with an initiation ceremony, that invites you to fully step into and embody your Priestess Self.
Curious about what being a Priestess is all about?
Join me for the FREE class Priestessing in the Modern World, where we will explore the ways Priestessing is appearing in the world around us and I will lead you on a journey to meet your Priestess Self.
There are two opportunities to join this class live, Jan 23rd at 9:30 am and Jan 28tth at 1:30 pm PT.
I’ll send out a reminder and link as we get closer.

Veronica and I synced up our schedules to record some new episodes of the Witch Next Door.

Be gentle with yourselves Wise Ones.
