If your heart feels heavy, if you are feeling sad or fragile or lost or irritable, consider that maybe it’s because your heart is with Mexico City, as her ground quakes and crumbles, and that maybe would feel some relief to provide some relief, even just a little…Visit Sister Damiana (also the maker of this image) @laluneria and click the link in her profile to send some help if you can🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

Just a few of the previously mentioned Yogini/ Priestess /Witch women courageous or intelligent or bored or desperate or wise or foolish enough to choose to step over the threshold, and say yes to the journey to know your own medicine, know the plants, and know the profound pleasure of sisterhood and magic in this life!

New Moon Contemplation: I let go of self judgement and accept the perfection of the journey unfolding...Maybe just maybe you are not immature, or “addicted to the bad boy”, with low self esteem, unable to require someone to meet you on your level because of self worth issues. MAYBE, you are a highly skilled, if unconventional, initiate who understands that sex and love are most effective means of accessing accumulated shadow material and accomplishing inner time travel, the chemicals released when in peak pleasure functioning as powerful psychedelics capable of providing you with clear visibility into old wounds and traumas so you can clear them and be liberated from identification with the compensation strategies we mistake for personality traits that our traumas inspired us to adopt. Maybe you feel empowered to be your own priestess/ shaman and are overseeing a complex self-soul-retrieval journey, intelligently selecting said “bad boy/ bad girl” “inappropriate” “peter pan syndrome” person and partnering with them not financially or to bring children into the world but to access younger parts of each other that where abandoned or buried in moments of acute pain or trauma. Maybe those “bad boys/girls” are highly evolved beings who don’t mind being projected onto and cast in the role of villain if it means it will help you grow. Maybe they have THAT MUCH love for your spirit that they agreed to temporarily tolerate your blame in the name of your growth. Maybe they agreed to wear the costume of your father, or your high school boyfriend who you gave your power away to when you didn’t yet know how to say no or make requests, just to chemically recreate the scene together now and give you the opportunity to experience saying no now, just so you have a chance to see how much (continued)

I can’t decide weather to call this post Our Family Is Growing! OR The End Of An Era… We met in art school when I was 18. I’m 36 now. He says the first time he saw me I was wearing a handmade patchwork leather hoodie and a beehive of dreadlocks, and that he was terrified of me. My first memories of him where of his strange bright purple sweatshirt and his way of making his point by telling an emotionally evocative personal story rather than rattling off a list of facts. I wanted to be friends and didn’t know how to make that happen. It would be 8 years before we started dating. In our courtship, he came direct, made offerings and made no excuses, met me fully, patiently, generously. And yet, we don’t always know the directions in which we will grow. At this point, we have been married for 8 years and consciously uncoupling while still living together and raising our son together for the past 2 years. We go to therapy together as one of our main hobbies. I hang out with his girlfriend, who is one of my best friends, he makes space in his heart for my new love, (and her love, who is also becoming my good friend) Last week we began the legal disentanglement, driven in small part by the fact that laws originally designed to keep men from ruining women’s lives by abandoning them with children don’t account for the possibility of amicable unweaving of the ties that bind, and that the man in question may be a great guy who doesn’t deserve to be financially ruined just because our relationship evolved to no longer fit the standard definition, and in large part because of his engaging the journey of Vision Quest, in which he was shown that there were things in his life that needed to be untangled in order for him to be well. SO I am seeing that to evolve beyond old paradigms and old versions of ourselves, we need to at some point make the inconvenient effort to actually divest from them. We have mutually agreed to move through this in a way we can be proud of, (continued)

Melting into the velvet void of Durga...Just when I think I get Her, she surprises me with unexpected strength or grace, puts me so lovingly in my place, wisks something daunting off my plate, gives me the wisdom and patience to wait...

I heard an add on the radio the other day saying “Food shouldn’t cost a lot of money, require long hours in the kitchen or lots of messy clean up…” This is nothing short of black magic! We are being programmed to believe that one of the MOST important things in the world should be quick, odorless, and convenient, so we can hurry up and get back to…what? What are we doing with all this free time that our conveniences afford us? For an alarming percentage of the population, the answer is anything we can to numb the anxiety of being disassociated from the basic functions of life like growing food, cooking food, eating food with our family, cleaning up our kitchen, and then repeating the process. And many people raised this way have a secret shame about not cooking. It’s a contemporary form of eating disorder, thinking it should always be fun and easy and if you don’t like it, maybe its just not “your thing”. I will tell you, I don’t love cooking. I actually cry about once a week in frustration because I don’t want to cook, and yet I understand that I have to grow up and take responsibility for the way I feed myself. And I love plants, and eating, and discovering new flavor combinations. I love feeling strong in my body and able to be a channel for forces of nature that require more calories than I could have possibly imagined to do their thing and not leave me a crippled husk in the wake of their departure. I love feeling connected to the seasons and all the things that come alongside healing my relationship with food. So I will laugh at myself and all of my frustrating, messy mistakes. (I have spilled 32 oz. of coconut oil into my shoe…more than once!) I will roll my eyes at how I used to try to convince meat eaters to be vegan and now I actively teach conscious meat consumption. I will cry like a child who doesn’t want to do their chores, but I will not...(continued in comments)

You know me, I am a huge advocate for getting as much rest as you need, even if that means 14 hours a day- get as much rest as you need to do your work in a joyful way- to thrive and share wellness generously in any area you have found it, to identify what's not working and have the physical and emotional strength to make the changes needed in your inner and outer reality. So I think the sleep that we (me and Bjork, embodied Goddess of Evolutionary Creativity) are talking about here is something else. It's not restful regenerative sleep, but rather a nightmare where we do mindless, destructive things that we can't explain why we did them...the prayer is that we can shed old oppressive regimes like waking up from a bad dream, by making better choices starting wherever we are, with whatever "other" we may find in front of us, and that we find ourselves seeing more clearly, having the courage to take a deep breath before we react, looking each other in the eye and finding our humanity and choosing to act in ways that reflect the massive amount of love in our hearts...and that we may do this quite naturally...starting...right...now🙏🏾🙇🏽‍♀️🙏🏾 (music- submarine by #bjork, original image by @lesliesatterfield )
