This weekend I abandoned my computer. I have been spending far too much time with my face in the screen. My phone was still in my pocket, but the freedom of stepping away from my laptop was not only exciting, it was rejuvenating too!
I worked in the yard.
I scrubbed my floor.
I went to the river.
Then to the ocean.
I had so many creative ideas and I jotted them in notebooks and journals, but left their crafting for another time.
I spent some time creatively writing and working with my tarot deck.
When we open up space for being, suddenly new ideas arise. Creativity needs space to become.
When we spend time listening to the sounds of the natural world, when we see the awe and wonder that exist in a blade of grass or the screech of a hawk, we land in our connection with the earth energies and we allow our relationship to deepen.
Where are you opening to the earth energies?
Where are you making space for awe and wonder?
You know what else happens when we reconnect with the natural world?
We REMEMBER that we are a part of it. That our existence is woven into that of every living thing around us, every organism, animal, plant, tree and stone.
We are all intertwined and it is here in this confluence that magic is born. This intersection where we are no longer just “me” and instead feel the river of “all” is the center of our magical practice.
Your invitation is to let yourself sit here, in this flow, maybe for a minute, perhaps an hour or a day. Sit here, feeling the thrum of the tapestry of being and notice what unfolds. What ideas? What inspirations? What other invitations arise?
Notice and then decide what you will do with this summoning, this request from the universe.
We all have a Priestess that lives inside of us. Sometimes she is bold and spends her days bringing her gifts into the world. Sometimes she is shy and hides in the shadows hoping she will not be seen.
Often our relationship with our inner Priestess is flirtatious, we see her and feel her we might even fully embody her, only to step away knowing she is there but avoiding the reconnection for a time.
Our Priestess Self is a powerful force. When I fully stand in my Priestess Presence I can feel the vibration of her energy coursing through me. I can feel that tapestry I referred to moments ago.
When was the last time you connected to your Priestess Self? What kind of space does she take up in your life? How do her gifts make their way into the day to day of your life?
I want to reacquaint you with your inner Priestess.
I have created a FREE class “Priestessing in the Modern World”, where we explore what it means to Priestess in the world today and then we journey through a guided visualization where you are led to meet this powerful part of YOU!
There are two chances to catch this live, January 23rd at 9:30 am PT and January 28th at 1:30am PT.
I hope you’ll carve this time out and join me for this journey.
I’ll send you a reminder and links to join as we get closer to these dates.
In the meantime, I’d like to leave you with some information about the Priestess Path,
A 12 lesson and 13 moon journey into Self. The next cohort begins February 5th.
This course takes you through foundational practices, self exploration, magical tools and workings and culminates in an initiation, where you step fully into your power.
You can learn more about this path and get on the waitlist here.
(The waitlist gives you access to early registration)
