The water is turquoise and perfect. ~ His amber eyes are full of presence

IMG_0139.jpg

You know those moments
Where everything just falls into place

The water is turquoise and perfect
His amber eyes are full of presence
The sun hits my skin just right
And it feels a little
Like heaven

And yet
You know it's fleeting
Life will continue to flow
This way and that
And the moment slips through our fingers
Never meant to last
Because life
Does not work like that

I decided
Today
I would not worry
or fret
About what was
Or what is to be

But I would let myself understand
That it is me
That makes life
Happy

I am the center
Of all I live
And in every moment
I choose to see
Divine perfection

Deciding not to long for days past
But to embrace the tides

Years ago
I would have been content
To dwell
In longing

But I'm changed now
I know too much
Life is too good
To waste
Longing for
What was

Let's open to the flow
It's only natural for things to go
But this moment offers everything
Just as it always has

Just as it always will

The #1 Key for Creating Abundance as a Priestess

headerbrighterbluer.png

In the first 3 or 4 years of running my business, I struggled to make ends meet.

Yes, I was full-time with my work, and yes, I was absolutely loving what I was doing - but I felt this low-grade anxiety moving through my system about money all - the - time.

There were many, many times, where I didn't know how I would make my rent that month. There was also a time I remember when I needed to forage for berries just to eat fruit, because I literally had $0 in my bank account. (And I fucking love my fruit so I guess foraging for blackberries ain't so bad, BUT, it would have been nice to forage WHILE having money in the bank to eat, am I right?) 

Fast forward to 2 years later, and here I am - at a café in Greece eating a veggie burger, writing this letter to you, and looking forward to my flight to Egypt on Monday. I have an amazing hotel room with an awe-inspiring view here in Delphi... not the cheapest hostel bed I could find. I haven't had to touch my savings on this trip, because my monthly payments from my clients cover all of my expenses while traveling. I work on the road, and I feel deeply purposeful with what I do. It totally lights me up, beyond words are able to describe.

So... What the fuck changed? 

What changed was my understanding of how abundance comes to us, and undertaking a commitment to follow through on that new understanding, in my daily life. And I want to share this powerful shift in understanding today, with you. 

In this new video, I describe exactly how I create abundance in my life now. Watch it below + let's deepen into this journey of claiming abundance so we can actually do what the fuck we want to do in life... Shall we?

In the video, I also invite you to dive deeper into this topic with me, in a free 3 day course called Creating Abundance as a Priestess.

In this 3 day deep dive, we work with the Great Mother as the Source of our abundance, re-progam our sub-conscious energy around money, and I show you how to download divinely-inspired ideas that will resonate with your soul path, while bringing you abundance.

10 Tips for Sharing Your Vulnerable Stories Online

17807473_10210909441925291_306210526805483617_o.jpg

My heart was feeling a bit woozy. My mind was doubting whether I was doing the right thing, or if this time, it was simply “too much”.

I was just about to press “post” on a very vulnerable and real story for me… one that had only happened a couple of weeks ago. Usually when I post my stories, I’m confident and know I’m doing the right thing. This time, I think the pain was so fresh, and the subject matter so personal, that I had a moment of doubt.

But then my intuition came in and said “Get over it girl, you know this is well-meaning” and I hit ‘Post’!

I had just written a story of a recent heartbreak in Mexico, and I didn’t spare the details. (Well maybe I spared the super sexy details, but that’s besides the point haha)

I shared that story because I had some really big AHA moments that had come from that experience, that I knew could honestly benefit a lot of people. Not only that, but writing is a form of cathartic release for me, and this story was simply bubbling up in me to be told.

Over the next few days, hundreds of comments and messages poured in from women (and some men!) all over the world, that had real moments of awakening upon reading that post. Some women shared they cried, or said that they’d rarely experienced a piece of writing that “got to them” so deeply. I was really moved by those comments. I felt the camaraderie with my sisters, with my tribe, with the collective wounds around the Sacred Masculine - and I felt a deep understanding that sharing my stories is truly a beautiful thing.

The night I posted that story, I had a hit that I wanted to share some tips on how to share vulnerably online. Whether you’re a closeted writer that longs to communicate and express yourself, or a healer who yearns to awaken others through your own stories, there’s lots of reasons to express yourself vulnerably online. One of them also being that in this shiny perfect Instagram obsessed world… realness is hard to come by. Yet that kind of raw authenticity is exactly what’s going to heal this planet, because it brings us a sense of togetherness and tribe that nothing but honesty + authenticity can bring to the table.

So if you want to join me on this mission of authentic sharing, here are my top 10 tips for doing so!


MY TOP 10 TIPS FOR GETTING VULNERABLE ONLINE



1.  Share what feels real & present.

Speak about what feels pertinent and potent in the moment. Don’t go back to an experience you had that no longer brings up any feeling in you, and share that story. We want to FEEL you, we want to go on a JOURNEY with you. So come from a place of feeling. Ask yourself… “What’s real to me right now? What’s present for me? What’s on my heart?” —- And allow yourself to get into that place, and channel the messages that are coming from there.

You’ll know if you hit the sweet spot, if you are moved or have a reaction to what you write, when you go back to read it.

2. Get personal

Sharing vulnerably online is not for the faint of heart. But if you're reading this, you are probably the kind of person that is ready for the plunge.

So I ask.. get personal, and specific. I've read a lot of stories online when the person alludes they're about to get really real.. but then they brush over the actual content of the story that riled them up. For example, they say something like “And then this experience with a lover happened that made me feel ‘less than’ ”, and they move on from there and share their lessons, with little content in the actual story that triggered those lessons.

GIRL, {or BOY… if that’s the case} —- I WANT TO KNOW THE DIRT. Now again, this kind of sharing is NOT for everyone. But if I’m going to relate to you, and if you’re going to really awaken some stuff in me... please be transparent. What happened? Share the specifics of your story. I might have been there too. I might BE there. But I don't know, if you get all general and scared to dish the truth.

Bring us through your story like a fiction book, set the scene, the way it made you feel, the colour of the sky when you walked out of the house... whatever details you feel inspired by. Weave the web. Make us feel like we’re there with you. Get us, the readers, INVOLVED.

Please, of course WITH REGARD for those involved. Do not use names, and if in your story it is obvious who you are talking about, even if no names were used, please get the permission of that person first, before you press send.

3) Own your story first, teach later.

A post that comes from a place of first person storytelling is much more likely to resonate with your audience, than a vanilla statement of what you learned.

For example, let’s go back to my story about heartbreak. I learned a lot about my connection with the Sacred Masculine.

But what if I instead of sharing that personal story (see number 2) — I simply wrote my lessons, with no backstory of where they came from.

Like:

“Girls, it’s so important to honour your inner masculine! Go within and feel into how you are honouring your inner masculine. Do you let him out, or no?

If you don’t honour your inner masculine, you may magnetize experiences with men that hurt or make you feel like you can’t trust them. ”

Is that message true? Yes… but it doesn’t hit me. I don’t feel from it. If the goal is to really resonate with your tribe, and to touch people and affect change, your personal stories are probably the way to go.

Now, to be real, I totally post quick notes and lessons, quotes, and things like that… but if I’m really looking to create a post that’s going to go deeper with people and stir the pot, again - stories are my go-to.

4) Keep it empowered

Sharing our stories is not about us having a pity-party online… I think you get that. We’re not sharing our stories to garner attention, validation, or to use our online tribe as our counsellor.

That’s what our journals are for.

If you’re in the thick of a challenging experience, and haven’t found the lesson, I would suggest continuing to journey through that experience until you can find something empowering and uplifting about it, to include in your message.

Now sometimes you might be having a rough time, have not learned the lesson yet, but still want to share it, to be transparent with your audience. I get that. The empowering message within this simply might be… “I hurt too, and this is my truth right now.”

You’ll be able to tell what the vibe of the post is by how you feel when you read it.

However, I find it really fun to share experiences where I learned a lesson and I can articulate that lesson afterwards, towards the end of the post. Kind of like taking your reader on a heroines journey, and have them go through the challenges and come out the other side with some gold, even if that gold is simply more self-love, and or a shifted perspective.

Bottom line: Leave your readers with a sense of empowerment, rather than having them confused about what your actual point is.

5) Honour that some people just won’t get it

The online world is a crazy place. You’ve got to be prepared for feedback of all kinds. Most of the comments and messages I get from my stories are really powerful, positive, and introspective on the readers part. Often our stories spark meaningful dialogue that feels really good to be a part of.

But inevitably, there’s going to be some people who just don’t get it. Maybe your story sparked their ego, because it reminds them of themselves, and they’re not ready to face those demons yet.

Maybe they misunderstood your post, and think you’re saying something you’re not.

Maybe they’re just a big meanie. I don’t know. But sometimes you’re going to get comments that aren’t so nice.

Honour that, as a part of your journey to sovereignty, and as help in letting go of giving a fuck what people think.

Personally when I get negative comments, I still get upset, even if it’s just for 20 seconds. Again, this is a great opportunity for me to see where I’m still looking for validation from other people.

My advice? Don’t feed the fire. Ignore the haters. HATAS GONNA HATE. Just keep spreading the love, and shift your focus to how awesome you are, and how great your heart is.

6) Share a raw photo

I’ve seen some really beautiful and heartfelt sharings, accompanied by generic photos, or of paintings that are not by the writer. This creates a bit of separation, between the personal, vulnerable nature of your post, and the first impression people get of it - the picture!
I’d recommend a raw / real photo of yourself, or of something connected to the story to accompany your posts. I love high quality pictures - as in, photos with good resolution - however if that’s not available to you, that’s fine.

Keep in mind people are going to be reading YOUR words, so if you have a photo with your eyes, embodying an emotion that relates to the story, that’s going to connect with people more deeply. We’re hardwired for connection through eye contact! This picture is going to draw people in to read your story.

7) Keep some things for yourself

This is probably obvious, but you don’t need to share every single one of your vulnerable stories online. Keep what feels private, or even unhealed, to yourself or your close friends or family.

8) Share it!

You just poured a bit of your soul into a piece of writing, with the intention to serve both yourself, and your tribe. So honour that delicious effort you just went through, and make sure to share that story where your target audience can see it!

I don’t just share my stories on my FB page and Instagram, I also post them on my blog, send them out to my email list AND I post them to different FB groups I’m apart of, who I feel would resonate or be served by the message.

This may push you past your comfort zone..but ahhh fuck it. That’s where all the juice lives anyhow.

9) Don’t censor yourself

Notice how I just dropped an f-bomb? Yeah.. that’s because that’s how I speak, and that’s what just came through naturally. (My Mom hates it however, but guess what, she can share her own stories her way! Teehee. Love you Mom! ;))

Remember - this isn’t English class. You get to speak however you want to speak. If you want to swear, use slang, include smileys, make breaks in your writing, tell jokes —- have at ‘er! Show your personality! It’s all you baby!

And remember, the spirit of sharing your vulnerability is just that —- getting real, raw, and uncensored. Claim your truth! And if people get offended, refer to number 5.

10) Honour your intuition above all

And of course, last but not least, throw any of my tips out the window if your intuition tells you something different. Your inner guidance trumps all!

Lastly, I wanted to mention some reasons why you might benefit from sharing your stories online:

  • You'll be creating authentic connections, both on and offline
     
  • You'll be serving people, and helping other people who might need to feel like they're not alone
     
  • You'll attract clients to you, you can really help, if you're an entrepreneur who offers your healing gifts out into the world - they'll be able to know you, and trust you, because you're showing up in a very real way. People work with those who they trust and feel safe with. You'll also have shown that you've gone through what they might be going through, and have wisdom to share with them.
     
  • You'll feel the inspired movement of energy & creativity flow through your being as you share what's real


So there you have it folks, 10 tips for getting vulnerable online. I hope this served you!

She could see through my pain...

IMG_8901.jpg

Sitting in front of my mentor, as I had been for the past 2 days, in deep retreat, I couldn't hold the shadow in, any longer.

Here I was, sitting in front of 2 sisters who held so much unconditional love in their eyes, that it was both incredible and obvious... I was still grappling with wounds of not-enoughness, of not being worthy.

Here again, was this old, and in some ways, familiar voice, whispering...

"You don't really belong here. They don't really love you. If they knew who you really were, they wouldn't accept you. This unconditional love stuff does not apply to you. You are the exception."

 

I had become aware of this voice, in another of my mentor's temples, over the last year or so.

It's a really shitty voice. It makes me feel so separate.

And as I was feeling into this pain, my mentor Eden could see it clearly, and through my tears I connected with her eyes...

"Beloved, I love you unconditionally.

I already see you, I already love you. There is nothing you can do to make me not love you. There is nothing you can do to make me love you. I simply love you.

We don't do that anymore. We don't throw Priestesses out any more for not abiding by certain codes. That's over."

A huge well of grief arose within me and poured out as tears through my eyes, and as sobs through my gut.

The nature of alchemical work in a Priestess container is interesting. So often, as I walk this path of remembrance... deep feelings will arise within me, alluding to memories that I can't quite remember... reminding me of experiences that I can't quite put my finger on.

But there it was.

Clearly Eden had touched something very deep. And spoken words that needed to be spoken.

It is only me who keeps myself separate.

And in that moment, I was able to burst through the lie of separation, just a little bit more.

I was able to see the lie that I am unlovable in any way.

This, this is medicine. And I continue to walk this path. To remind myself that I am deeply lovable, in all of my shadows, in all of my pain, that there really and truly is, only love.

I share this with you today because I want you to know the places in which I am raw. I felt them today. Gazing over the Spanish mountains and knowing that I was in such beautiful place... and yet for hours, all I could feel was anguish and resistance. Something had triggered the shadows yet to be loved.

I have them.
These pockets of unworthiness.
I'm willing to guess you have them, too.
And together, we are lovable in them.

And when we honour that the pain we feel, lives inside all of us, we can find a togetherness in the shadow. A togetherness, and an understanding of our oneness, that is able to transmute it.

Because the truth is, you are lovable, I am lovable.

In all the places we've held back out of fear.

In all the places only we know about.

In all the places that drive us to addictions, or so called self-defeating behaviors.

We are lovable.

We are one.

And I am with you.

Medicine of the Snake - Full Moon in Scorpio Guided Meditation with Kali-Ma

🌹Happy Full Moon in Scorpio! What is Scorpio all about? 

In most traditions, even New Age ones, we honour White & Gold, cleanliness, the Divine from ABOVE, and Masculine energy (productive, direct, logical) --- above all else. Think of this as the white & gold snake.

While that aspect of us is rad, it is only half of the story... We are lovingly urged to honour the BLACK & RED energies coming from BELOW & WITHIN us. The FEMININE is rising, and Kali-Ma calls on us to embrace the black womb space from which we all originate. Sex, death, and transformation ya'll. 🌹Think of this as the black & red snake.

In order to step into sovereignty as we are destined to, we need to honour Spirit AND Soul, Light AND Dark, Masculine AND Feminine --- white AND black snakes!

Healing the Sting of the Shadow Feminine {Free Ceremony}

 

We've all felt it.

The sting of the shadow feminine.

Whether that was growing up and sensing gossiping voices talking about you, making you feel less than, or not lovable... Or whether you feel that today while you're on Social Media and you compare yourself to other women, labeling them as either "better than" or "worse than" you... I think as women, we all know what the wounds of Sisterhood feel like.

But here's the thing. Sisterhood, when it's in its truth, is so Divine - it's incredible. The feeling of love and support we feel from powerful and courageous women holding us can feel like a safe harbour, where anything is possible. A warm snuggly spot that both nurtures us, AND pushes us to grow into the beings we truly are.

But how do we get to this place?

I've seen alot about the virtues of Sisterhood online, and in the "spiritual community", so to speak.

And I love it, I love that Sisterhood is rising.

But what isn't talked about very much is our shadow, and our wounding, when it comes to Sisterhood.

In order to truly heal, and feel the very real benefits of sisterhood, we need to look at these wounds directly, and bring healing energy to them. These wounds have been in our collective psyches for thousands of years.

As second-class citizens, women have had to fight for resources, husbands, and more, sometimes just for their very survival. This has totally affected how we relate to one another.

It's time we heal, and I think we all feel it, to a certain extent.  But how, how to heal?

Well.. first off, healing the wounds of sisterhood is a journey. It won't happen overnight.

But as we each individually do the inner work necessary to find our self-worth + inner sister, MIRACLES happen.

Our vibration and embodiment of this healing ripples out energetically. We are able to support other women in ways we could not have before, and we are also able to let women in and be vulnerable as we heal our fears around intimacy.

This sets an example for the other women in our lives, and sparks a healing journey within them too!

And so, I wanted to offer a ceremony that we can all join in, to start to deeply heal the wounds of sisterhood.

This ceremony will be roughly an hour long, held on video, on Monday, May 8th at 3pm PST*. It will be live, and you'll be able to ask questions in real time, while communicating with fellow participants in the chat box, if you do make it live. {If you can't make it live, there will be a replay sent to you -- Sign up below}

We'll be working with Aphrodite and the spirit of the Dolphin to guide us in this deep exploration and healing.

Together we will discuss how the wounds of sisterhood affect us all, and we'll create a ritual around healing & dissolving these wounds together.

 

The result will be that you'll feel more connected to your sisters AND yourself, than perhaps ever before. You'll be able to lay down the weapons, and be more aware that all of us are just doing the best we can. You'll be less tempted to judge, and more open to love.

And this will spark a worldwide movement, that is already well underway!

3 Steps to Feeling Sexier --- {From a Spiritual Perspective}

I remember growing up, there was this girl who I found to be really beautiful. She was darker skinned and exotic looking, and all the boys seemed to want her. I felt like she was just born with that sexy energy, and I on the other hand... was not.

It was like I was on the outside looking in.

I remember wondering what it would feel like to be her... to know you were sexy and just claim it, every time you walked into the room.

Fast forward many years, and I started to realize that all people are born with that attractive, sexy, powerful energy - regardless of what they look like. It's just that due to societal conditioning, whether that comes from our parents, our school, or even past lives - we learn to shut it off, and deny this raw magnetism that allows us to feel sexy on any given day.

Once I began to investigate my sexuality, and started to peel off stifling layers of shame - I began to reclaim my natural feeling of BEING SEXY! Woot woot! I no longer wait on the approval of men or women to dictate whether I'm attractive --- I've tapped into a reservoir of magnetic energy that we all have access to, and now when I walk around - I know I'm sexy, I've claimed it - whether someone throws me a glance or not.

It's fun to live this way, and in the video above, I give you 3 steps you can practice in your life, to awaken your own understanding of your sacred sexuality. Practicing these steps often will allow you to work through years of conditioning, so you no longer have to question whether you're inherently beautiful.


Have fun with the steps!

Lots of love!
