Well, I did it.
I danced naked in the rain.
I walked barefoot at night, in the woods, up the mountain, under the moonlight.
I stopped shaving (why bother?!).
I refused to wear a bra (seriously, every time I would try to put one on my boobs would scream-NO!)
I said exactly what was on my mind.
I ate whatever I wanted…..sometimes ice cream and chocolate twice a day. ;-)
I cried loud and freely and allowed myself to be supported in a powerful group of women... to REALLY be seen.
I laughed until my stomach hurt.
I faced my inner patriarch and matriarch and showed ‘em who’s boss.
I faced my inner shadow…..that voice that tells me I’m not enough and my ideas aren’t worth sharing.
I claimed my worth out loud and felt it be received with love.
I felt SO alive and free, more then ever before! I was liberated!
This was my Priestess Process.
It was a remembering of a time past when we, as women, were the healers in the community….the “seers”…the wisdom keepers, the ones to lead ceremony and ritual….
who communed with nature and her rhythms every day…who gathered together to vision and dream during our moon time. We served the Goddess in all her magnificent forms.
I have felt a call to the Priestess Path for quite some time now. Years ago I started having visions of gathering with women at night, outside in circle. We were dancing around a fire and commanding the elements…..howling at the moon and claiming our power. We were Wild Women and we were Divine!
I also had past life memory of being burned at the stake and horrifically tortured because
I was a Priestess and a visionary healer.....me and millions of other women. No wonder we are scared to really step out and share our truth and visions with the world!
Little did I know, all of this was my inner High Priestess calling me to remember who I have been, and who I am becoming. She is asking me to awaken even more deeply to my powerful, visionary self that holds the big dreams and goals for my life, and for the world, with the ability to manifest exactly what I desire…because I know that the desires in my heart are the desires of the Goddess and are meant to be manifest!
From this first stage of Priestess Process, I came home with the clear realization that, “Visionary entrepreneurial women are the modern day High Priestesses!” I believe the most impactful way we can access and use this part of ourselves in this lifetime is to step into purposeful work and create the life of our true hearts desire.
If we can dream it, it is meant to be so!
This is becoming the current platform from which I take a stand. This grounds all of the work I have been doing for years and solidifies it into one cohesive vision!
Does this resonate with you?
If you’re interested in this conversation and want to join me for more, I am leading the next Magdalene Circle for Women this Sunday here in Charlotte. For those of you outside of NC and the USA, I am finding a way to share more of this information with you through my writing and I will be launching a High Priestess video series as well as an immersion program for women who are ready to step into their High Priestess Selves!
Stay tuned by joining my mailing list here.
p.s. here's the link for the circle this Sunday will all the details: Magdalene Circle
p.p.s. if you'd like to learn more about our matriarchal history before the violent inquisition where over 9 million women, men and children died (yup, you read that right) for sharing their gifts of healing and vision with the world and speaking out like I am right now, I highly recommend watching "The Burning Times" movie. It is POWERFUL and a must see for
all women. You can access it here: The Burning Times.
I am working on having a viewing of it here in Charlotte soon.
To Your Highest Vision,
Marcela "Magdalena" McBride
