Today is a day of rest and reflection for me. A time of integration.
After two fabulous days of the Cauldron of Wisdom virtual conference, I feel full and grateful (and a little tired too).
Each time one of these events take place, I am reminded of the sacredness of connection, of sharing, or openness and the gift that comes with both giving and receiving wisdom.
Even within a Zoom room sacred space can be created and connections can be made. Even across miles we can find our roots and intertwine them into a circle where magic is born.
With Spring traipsing across the land here in the Northern Hemisphere and that ongoing quickening pushes us forward, I invite you to pause and ask yourself what you are integrating in this moment.
What have you been learning, practicing, working on?
How is this integrating into your awareness? Your body? Your way of being?
Yesterday one of the classes we took was about altar magic.
Altars are a favorite practice of mine and one that anyone can do at any time.
Drawing off Jen Untalan’s class, here is a simple practice for you to play with.
After asking yourself the questions about integration, take ten minutes and look around your house or outdoor space and grab items that stand out to you in relationship to this integration process.
Maybe there's a crystal or rock that speaks to the way this thing you have been absorbing is routine into your body.
Maybe a statue or flower that sparks a connection for you.
Whatever these items are, gather them together and set them out on a table, or counter or the top of your dresser.
Set a candle in the middle and light it.
Let this space be your ally in your integration.
Sit here and journal, meditate, gaze…
Add and subtract items as you feel called.
Opportunity to Connect
The conference might be over but there is still the opportunity to connect.
The next cohort of the Priestess Path begins May 20th.
I’ll be sharing about this and leading you on a journey to meet your inner Priestess this coming Friday at 4:30 pm PT.
Priestessing in the Modern World is a free 45 min class that explores the concept of Priestessing and invites you inward to connect with this part of yourself.

We will gather together in a co-created sacred space where we will move through ceremony, spell work, connection with each other and with the land.
