This week I had the opportunity to watch my best friend parent with so much fierce love. She desires her children to grow up feeling an immense sense of gratitude. To notice what they have rather than only seeing what they don’t have or what they lack. It’s beautiful to watch my dear friend establish firm boundaries and sacred practices to help her children be mindful human beings.
April has always been an especially painful month for me. One that I dreaded for it reflected back to me how alone and disconnected I truly was. During this time of “celebration” I always felt I was living a lie. Each year I turn, the more I found that April was the month that felt like a great energy had become the judge, jury and executioner of my life. I stood before this greater being, also known as my ego, and testified why I was ready to move onto another year of my sacred life. I shared all the learnings and tried to prove my worth. As this was happening, I noticed all the lessons from the past year were being re-created. Well crafted, finely tuned, and brilliantly executed for me as my final test.
Happy Equinox, cosmic warrior priestess!
Yesterday we felt the shift; the turning of the wheel as we entered Spring or Fall depending on whether we live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere. Did you feel the portal opening? Did you feel the jolt of energy as we cranked up the vibration a notch and are now learning to root into this new frequency. It feels a little unsettling and yet our inner desires are fueled with passion and purpose. Let’s not dial down the energetic pulse but rather learn to live life with this new sense of clarity.
Saturday evening Eric bent down on one knee with Sofia, my puppy right by his side, and asked if I would enter this sacred union. Three years ago I met him at a bookstore for tea and that evening, we were back at the bookstore creating new memories.
Sister Priestess, I’m engaged. Wow, sharing that with you feels incredibly special.
When I was a teacher I quickly learned that teaching is not just a natural talent but a skill that you can learn to master over time. For me the fundamental principle of teaching is that there is no one way to support your students. I had to get to know my 35 “children” very quickly and shift the way I communed with an individual child based on their energy, their personality, their learning style, and their needs.
The Goddess Road Trip, a 7 city Sacred Circle tour around Australia, began last week. Women from Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, and Newcastle have been sharing their call to embody the Goddess with a courageous heart and learn to step into the archetype of a warrior. I have a feeling as we continue our trip, sisters in Byron Bay, the Sunshine Coast, and the Gold Coast will also be sharing similar desires.
We fight not with swords but with our hearts.
We walk on the frontline with fierce devotion.
We honor the fallen, those that have come before us, by doing the work on ourselves now.
We embrace our strength shamelessly.
Living and working on the road, being a location-independent entrepreneur, flying first class from one country to another - it all sounds so fabulous, doesn’t it?
You may strive to have a business that funds your addiction to travel to faraway lands. You may dream of booking beautiful Airbnb’s or staying in luxurious hotels. Or you may deeply desire to travel from one city to another connecting with women in a more intimate way.
I get it sister, I do.
Imagine if there was a platform for you to share your genius, to have a way of getting your message out to a community that is so willing to listen. Imagine if there was a place for you to humbly learn, activate another part of you that you didn’t know existed within, and be inspired to create change from the inside out? Imagine if there was a virtual experience filled with beauty that supported you as a cosmic warrior priestess?
May this new gift be that for you.Introducing, Warrior Priestess Magazine.
This core wounding shifted how I saw myself. I was the one who was going to take over the world prior to this experience. I was vibrant, flirtatious, and full of laughter.
But as this betrayal was happening, I started to get quieter and quieter to the point where I started to not speak much. I was so traumatized that for a number of years I was incredibly shy and fearful of everything. I was afraid of other people. I was afraid of other people yelling at me.
Even then I was a rebel with a cause, a cosmic warrior priestess. A part of my essence was encoded with the desire to move through hesitation, fear, and the unknown. I couldn’t meet fear face on when I thought I was going to get in trouble by loved ones, but I could meet fear face on when I was given a choice of paralysis or living life.
This past weekend Tiffany and I held space for 13 Sister Success Mastermind women. They came from Hawaii, Canada, New York, New Jersey, and North Carolina.
These women made a conscious decision to carve out time away from their work and their family to join us on a 4-day retreat.
Our sisters intuitively knew that coming together in sisterhood, on retreat, is what creates magic and allows massive healing and transformation to occur.
My love for travel runs deep and it’s due to my soul’s essence. I am a traveler at heart. My curious nature desires to learn more about other cultures. My insatiable appetite to support women around the world gives me the energy to explore new places and have intimate conversations with women so I may understand their desires, their hesitations, their challenges, their fears, their perspective, and the way they live their life. I’ve noticed women can be very different from one another and yet we are also so similar. Our fears and our desires unite us and can create strength as a collective which gives us the power to create change.
Nine months ago, on the sacred lands of Bali, I met Tiffany Scott at a women's retreat. Little did I know that, that encounter would be the beginning of an extraordinary partnership.
I had been yearning for deep collaboration; to find a partner that could be the catalyst for my visionary self to truly be seen and encouraged to take flight.
I knew the Goddess was creating something big, I could feel the shift of energy in my system as I weaves new patterns with the Goddess without knowing where the threads were taking me. I could sense it was big and I was ready.
This past Tuesday and Wednesday I held a Sacred Circle Temple Gathering online. There were faces of sisters I've known for four years and sisters whom I have just had the privilege of getting to know. Though I have been holding circle and virtual circles for years now, I was extremely nervous.
Nervous not because I wasn't prepared or because I thought the women who carved out time to attend wouldn't enjoy it, but rather because I was showing up in a new form. Showing other sides of me that I haven't shared as openly. There was so much within me that was ready to burst open.
I am going through a metamorphosis.
Today’s Sora TV offers a peek into what collaboration in sisterhood looks like as I share my experience of a recent live event in Los Angeles with my mastermind co-leader, Tiffany Scott.
But first, here’s what you should know about me.
I love leading my own experiences and holding my own space in sister circles. I am also quite fiery and grounded in my ways which means I can be hard-headed at times....
Today’s Sora TV was inspired by a practice from Day 11 in the Stay Sacred journal. It is a powerful and simple message around being grateful.
It’s an invitation to explore a different aspect of gratitude than what you might be used to.
There are so many lessons this wise goddess has to share with us.
First, there are moments in time when you need to shed all of yourself, piece-by-piece-by-piece. It feels like you are dying. And from that place, transformation can occur and then you can put yourself back together again, piece-by-piece-by-piece, restructuring your entire system.
You are now upgraded and whole and divine and you have the ability to see yourself in more of a light than you ever had before because you powerfully went through the excavation process.
