Muses of a Priestess in Training, Keeper of the Flame

I figured that once you hit that mile stone, things would be a bit easier…NO!  I feel like I am making that last track up the mountain, along with many challenges that push me to see how bad I truly want it.  The Goddess calls many, but only a few make it, is what my HPS reminded us one day as we sat at the covenstead taking in our lessons.  Doing some shadow-work, I pulled a card with the question of “Do I walk my talk?” and the card I pulled is yes…but honestly I feel like running some days. Looking into the dark recesses of your soul is not a lovely, fun trip.  You do not want the t-shirt, the coffee mug, or the magnet…you just want out!  I have finally admitted to being depressed..No not by my path, but by my work.  So many hours and tied down too long, while I feel like my dreams and my wants pass.  I have to consciously pull myself out of that every day, and learn to look at things a different way.  For one, and this was one of my shadow questions “What do I loose my power to?” And yep, it gave me the 10 of cups…too comfortable.  Maybe even lazy, but it’s this way..there are many distractions placed in our lives like TV or FaceBook.  Sure, we can use these things to the positive, but many cases we get lost and find ourself sitting and just being mind bogged.  I am so guilty of this.  I like things that make me feel good, so I get lost in them as I just ride that feel good wave.  I know this can be a good thing, but it cant always be the main thing.  When I am feeling sorry for myself, and wallowing in my own pity party, I heard the Goddess say to me “Hunny, those fields arent going to tile themselves”. Boy is she right. No one is going to prepare your future for yourself…except you.  The Goddess is always with me, but its the God that works on me.  Like I’ve stated before, when I dedicated myself to the Goddess, the God showed up in full presence.  The God will throw you a sword and say “IF you are my own, you will stand up and fight me”, but some times I am like dang!  When is rest? Not during sleeping, because that is when your work in the astral begins.  Rest is the moments you spend with the Goddess.  Those times that you sit and talk with the Goddess, releasing all the crap inside at her feet…those are rest times.  There’s a lot of work to be done in the Pagan communities, as well as the Wiccan, or Wicce.  When you choose the path of the Priestess, the clean up falls at your feet.  And now, we are loosing many of our elders, much of our past is going as well.

Raymond Buckland passed a few days ago, and I felt that to my core.  I did not know this man personally, only through his books and others.  I still felt that connection to him as being an elder of the Path.  He was the first to bring Gardnerian Wicca to the US.  Even those Witchcraft existed in the US under different names, he brought that path to us and changed many lives.  As connected as I feel to my elders, as well as Nature, I still feel a resistance. In the US, we have been so conditioned to go to work, eat the food they give us, watch the TV for entertainment and then get up and do it again. As a society, we arent being urged to go out and be proactive in doing things, just being a slave to the economy. The importance to getting out in nature, staring at the stars, breathing fresh air or sitting on top of a big mountain is tremendous.  Staying inside doesnt help me much, it actually makes me worse, while being outside helps me greatly.  I am preparing my porch to be more suitable for me to move myself mostly out there.  There are several negative habits that I need to fix..and well I am working on them.  That is why many dont make it this far, looking deep into your soul making those hard changes that need to be made….its so much easier to lie on the couch eating cheese curls. Pulling the brain dead part of me out of stagnation is a job in itself, but my regular job isnt helping. Working for some one that doesn’t understand the value of personal time isn’t easy.  They are not doing it to be mean, just that’s their way, the one they’ve always known. Maybe by my work and my changes, I will help them out as well…who knows.

Those of you who can relate to these feelings of depression, know that you’re not alone. I feel they can be over came and I feel that it just takes us making some changes in our lives.  Do some little things, listen to some beautiful music, look at some beautiful art, see the beauty around you.  You have to get up and you have to go on.  I did have a car accident not too long ago, I was not at fault as I was stopped and rear-ended. But this has made me slow down and ask for help. It has made me a bit more humble and taught me the importance of movement.  So, today I take my sword and I stand up to my God and I fight him. I allow him to teach me the importance of intuitive movement, strategies, the importance of getting off my arse, and the wonderful feeling of accomplishment.  He has taught me so much about my inner strength in the past few months, building me from the inside out….and that is how a Witch is truly made…From the inside out! The initiations are you being birthed by the Mother, but its the father that sets your soul in action. The Mother’s love and the father’s action…priceless!

Blessings,

Becoming the Warrior

I was one of the ones that evacuated from the East Coast area.  Luckily, the only thing I have had to deal with is limbs, and our power was turned back on night before last. Irma, Goddess of War and Wisdom, Brought much wisdom to me at this time…and to everyone if they would just pay attention.  Irma was a very strong hurricane, they called her a catastrophic hurricane.  She did major damage to the islands in the Carribean, but eased up as she approached Florida’s coast.  Yes, there was flooding, property damage, etc, but it couldve been worse.  Irma showed us restraint in the midst of extreme power. She showed us that just because we can, doesnt mean we should.  We should know our own strength and harness it in productive ways.  One thing I feel is she brought people together again, while others are trying to divide.  She gave humility when we was at the brink of complete power.  Dont get me wrong, she did do some major destruction, but honestly, it could’ve been a lot worse.

Her message for me was to honor my power, and direct it in ways that will be most beneficial to me. Push that emotionally charged energy in a directed way to reveal what you are wanting…seeking.  We ask questions every day, but many fail to see the answers in front of us.  Sometimes, we get so fired up we cant see beyond our little box.  We must be able to look outside the box and see the entirety of what is happening.  This energy has intensified the water energy I am in now and has revealed to be things that I had thought I dealt with.  The thoughts of the little girl within me were quite painful. I know one issue many of us deal with is Self Worth….not being good enough.  I have looked at my previous relationships, and my present, noticing how I have in fact drew to me where I was in that time.  If I was wounded, I would draw some one wounded to me. The people were, and still are, a mirror of what I am going through.  This is why self inventory is so important in our lives, it allow us to deeply cleanse our Soul.

The thing about healing our deep wounds, and doing the self inventory is so we can live harmoniously abundant lives.  We can stop having these karmic relationships, and focus more on growing in our future.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  Well isn’t that exactly what we are doing is we keep doing the same thing over and over, but with different people? Healing the past to make room for the future just makes sense.  On this Spiritual path I am on, one isn’t carried, as that just makes you codependent….instead one is made to stand up on their own two feet and make their life work for them.  Being a Witch, you are connected to Mother Gaia (her energy) and you work with it to bring about the outcomes you want. Being Pagan, we are subject to the Laws of Nature and this is one thing we must understand.

Saying all of that, so whats next? Well, guess you’ll have to stay tuned to find out.

Many Blessings to you on your path, what ever it may be.  I am enclosing the link to a song that has really helped me during this time…hopefully you will find comfort in it as well.

The Priestess

3maidens

 

I am just days away from the ritual, and I am feeling the butterflies.  As I swim through this experience, this is not a comfortable experience.  I literally feel out of control as times as I am going through this initiation.  Things are not feeling the same, and I am really looking at my life doing some self inventory.  I would run from this if I didnt think the Goddess would hunt me down…..like she has done several times before. She is relentless to her priestesses.  The call will not go away, and will haunt you during your waking and sleeping time.  So here I sit, stressed out from today and crying like a baby.  I literally feel like a weak one.  It was not a good day at all.  Getting woke up early in the morning, having guests that are unhappy on their tour, then seeing a kitten get hit by traffic…yea it just has been a swirl of craziness.

This degree really gets you in touch with yourself, deeply.  It is a birth..rebirth.  Witches are born from the inside out, their High Priestess is their midwife.  A massive transitioning is happening.  Plus this energy of the Age of Aquarius with all this energy…and solar eclipse coming!!  Wow every thing in Gaia is shifting, transforming…rebirthing its self.  I have been working myself to death, dodging the energy that is surrounding me.  I am just blowing through it will no care…well now it is truly making itself known.  I can not longer hide from those issues/challenges I just close my eyes too.  I am not be observant of what is truly going on around me.  I am refusing to give myself a moment of silence to deal with this…this change.  As I look deep in to my own eyes, I am made to see my Soul and well its not happy about some things.  I work constantly at keeping others happy and it has become my pain.  My writing muse has been dormant, and with drawn.  She used to sit beside me whispering delicious words of intrigue…now she is alone in her corner.  I long to put pen to paper (so to speak) and compose a wonderful story to inform, delight, connect, help, inspire, heal some one out there.  Now there isnt even an echo.  But now, as the emotions rush in, my fingers can not move fast enough. There’s so much to say and not enough words to say them. The bottom of the pond is being dragged.  The long lost things that were hidden under the carpet are making themselves known. I feel like I am being turned up side down and inside out. My priorities are changing and I am seeing how fragile life is…and how short. Being so stressed that I cant think straight, being unprepared for important things because I am going so fast in the work lane.  WOW for what really?  It’s just too much, it’s so much as fast and trying to do this that and the other.  Plus with everything else…like a hurricane.  I have to breathe, I have to live, and I have to BE.

I know that I will walk the path I am supposed to walk and I will be a vessel for the Goddess to be expressed in beneficial ways.  The work is just tough some times.  Uranus will be going retro in August as well as Mercury going into retro on August 12th..and the eclipse on the 21st!  A lot happening in the stars as well.  I am already feeling this Uranus retrograde, I feel the hidden being made known.  I am spinning too fast, I need to slow down a bit and feel this and heal it so it can move on.  As a Priestess of the Goddess there is a lot of responsibility that comes with that and the preparation is not easy…and I have only just begun.  I keep saying I cant see what’s coming, but I bet if I slowed down and took a breath I would see and hear it.  What is real and what is the illusion??  It is now making itself known..with great clarity.

So one more step closer to the date. I know things are okay, but I have to ground.  I am excited by this and I am ready to move on into my role.  Just have to remember to BE..and most importantly to breathe…

Blessings,

The Mirth of the Goddess

The Mirth of the Goddess

We’ve always heard that the mirth of the Goddess is vast many who walked the path only wish to see the loving, all inclusive Mother, the lover the sexual power is that she is. But even the mother has another side. We like to see the submissive type goddess because she is easier to understand.  She is the one we run to when we’ve had a hard day, the one home we wish to run to when all of the world seems bad. And yes she can be that, but there’s also another side of our Great Goddess that we must acknowledge. Artemis for example is the goddess of the hunt she’s related to Diana which is also the moon goddess goddess of the hunt. To only acknowledge one aspect is a great dishonor to the goddess as we must remember the womb and the tomb are one and the same. The first thing that we are taught when we are taught to heal is that in order to heal we must first know how to kill. Now many will take that to an extreme that one not needs to take things, and that is why this path isn’t for all. The teachings of the Goddess are very, very deep and not for the mere simple mind.

Let’s consider the Faerie Goddess Aine. Aine, daughter of the sea good Manannan, was known throughout Ireland as a healing Goddess offering herbal remedies but that was not all she was capable of.  Aine had many lovers that would be consumed by her passion. She had a stone called the Cathair, all that would sit upon it would lose their minds….after the third time, they would be completely lost.  She, although sexual and healing, had a vengeful side and did not easily forgive.  This is something the King of Munster, Oilill Olum, found out first hand when he raped her. As he raped her, she bit one of his ears off which made him incompetent to serve as king (as she knew).  As this beautiful diety was known for her healing, love, and sexuality; she had another side of her that many others aren’t ready to comprehend.  

When many take to this spiritual path, they only want to see the rainbows and lollipops, failing to see the polarity.  when we do not accept all aspects, we limit and cripple ourselves.  When you choose a path, you take on the energy of that path…in all of its essence.  


To become the Priestess of the Goddess, is not a thinkless thing to do, as much responsibility comes with it….that some can’t emotionally comprehend. Priestess are her vessels.  She will love and protect, as well as challenge. The Goddess knows her children, she will call to them but only few will hear her.  Those that do will be blessed beyond compare….

The Goddess’s Mirth is very vast.  

The Mysterious Wicca

Emily-Balivet-2013

As many of you know, I am a traditionalist, but I wasnt when I began my path. I believe in the ways of my ancestors, and I honor those that have paved the way for me.  My lineage is very old, and predates Gerald Gardner by many, many years.  People do call Gardner the “grandfather of Wicca” and most believe that to be that he invented it.  If so, how did he get initiated into it?  You can not give yourself something you do not have.  No, he just brought the practice to the forefront.  In his time, Witchcraft was still pretty much outlawed, so he had to write the books in more of a fanatical way.  You see, it wasnt until 1951 that the last laws against Witchcraft were appealed in England.  He brought to the public eye a beautiful path, one he greatly loved, to try and teach them of the old ways and that they were not “evil devil worshiping” peoples.  His book “The White Witch” was based on what he was practicing at that time. This day and age, the path has become tainted as many can not even tell you the basics behind this beautiful religion. Many want it classified as a religion because a walker of this path should have the same equal rights as any other religion.   Many will take a path and bend and twist it til it is a mixture of many other paths….thus watering them all down. And this can be a not so healthy thing to do, as mixing isnt always a great thing.  I, and many others, call it a religion as for the acknowledgement of the path.  To me, when the word “Neo” is placed before any of the Pagan paths, I begin to laugh as  well as become sad. I am sadden because I know that parts of the culture is being lost.  Many believe that you do not need training…that again is laughable.  Would you go to a heart surgeon and allow him to operate on you when he has never went to school to train to become a heart surgeon?  Like I have stated many time before, I was eclectic for 15 yrs.  I promise you, the knowledge you gain with working with a seasoned Witch (1 yr and 1 day) is priceless and you will learn so much more than reading a book. Books are great, dont get me wrong, but in books there are things left out and you will not gain the knowledge of having hands on training and direct attention.  I have watched many people self destruct on the path of magic, for magic is a living being and demands respect.  When Raymond Buckland came to America after his initiation, he began to teach this sacred path. Now, we should all know that this one man could not train the masses all by himself. This path takes time, as there are many trials and tribulations one will go through with the turning of the Wheel.  One thing we have to understand as well, is that not all are ready mentally to deal with the responsibility of this path.  Therefore, many became upset that Buckland wouldnt train them, they began to piece together this path with what they thought it was….ever heard of Rosemary’s Baby??  Even Gardner himself stated that the only problem with this religion was “there’s too many chiefs and not enough Indians”.  In the 80’s with Scott Cunningham’s book “Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner”, Wicca began to have more of a new-agey philosophy and thus the watering down began.  Self initiation was at the hands of the inexperienced and then Wicca split into Wicca and Neo-Wicca. In the beginning of my path, I did a self dedication and there is nothing wrong with that.  I will say that when I stood there with my HPS and dedicated myself to the Goddess, the ground shook.  Initiations are a bit different, you can not give to yourself that which you do not obtain.  I am an Elder Wiccan, so I do understand that Nature has blueprints.  The Goddess is all encompassing, but the God will not hesitate to show you the limits.  In nature there are defined laws, and whether we acknowledge them or not, they are playing in our life every day.  Many of us try to become deity it’s Self…and we are far from it.  You can be very enlightened, but you are still in this 3D human form so there for you are subject to its boundaries and faults. We can not come to the Goddess and expect her to bow before us, this is a path of challenge and one that will break down your societal views, peeling layers of the falseness to expose the true diamond you are within. When you expect a path to bend just for you, you miss valuable lessons and training that you will never be privy of as well as it being selfish.  Now-a-days, we have a lot of people running around making noise like little children not knowing where they stand, not rooted deep in their foundation.  My goal is to educate and help bring others back to their core.  Knowing our myths and history is very important…just look at the story of Narcissus as that could help many right now.

Please do not think that I am saying I am above, holier than thou , or this path is above any other.  I am for the preservation of the Wiccan Path (as many may be for their path), and I honor my ancestors that came before me to make it possible for me to even know of such a beautiful path.  This path isnt for the weak.  It isnt unicorns and rainbows.  This path is hard work, it is great responsibility, it is one that will tear you apart, but teaches you how to rebuild stronger and wiser.  This path is a way for us to understand how natural law works.  Witches walk between the worlds and are healers of the physical and spiritual as well as the Earth.  They are made from the inside out, and they are capable of (by learning the laws) of bending the will to create the environment they want.  There are many different definitions for Wicca, and none I have seen on other websites or even wiki-pedia and other definition sites even come close to its true meaning….so here it is:

Wicca is a Feminine Nature based Mystery Religion that requires training with 3 degrees of initiation and is Oath bound.  

We do go by the 3 fold law…which is entirely different from the true definition of Karma. We have to realize our words and understand their true meanings, as this is what messes up a lot of things.  Be conscious of what you say and do, as words and actions carry great energy.  My path is Traditional European Celtic Witchcraft and I will be training after Samhain.  If you would like to take this beautiful journey, you are more than welcome to look me up on FaceBook, SironaRoseOwl. I will be starting a learning circle.  Let’s bring the sacredness back to the Wiccan path.

Many Blessings,

Sirona Rose

Healed Through Music

unnamed (24)

He was amazing–as amazing as a young man who has only seen the world through the eyes of a traveled young man could be.  He was handsome, with his long dark hair and dark eyes that looked as if they were going to devour me.  Did I love him? Yes, but not in the “let’s spend forever together” type of love.  No, I knew that we had loved each other in previous life times.  Now, our souls were just connecting again.  And my goodness, they did just that.  He loved me, in the best way that he could; as he said to me “I dont know how to be with you except to worship you”, and I let him do just that. We would talk most of the night, we danced in his living room, he played his guitar and sang lullabies to me to gently soothe my Soul.  His fingers would gently touch my face, he would softly kiss my lips, breathing in my breath as I surrendered to his touch.  I could feel his energy rushing through his body, our hearts began to beat as one.  He led me into his temple, where he proceeded to worship me. Our energies and bodies entwined, ultimately becoming one, broke down the walls around our hearts and healed our weary Souls.  I knew from our very first connection that he would not be able to enjoy the vastness of my ocean for very long.  You see, at these depths, he could not swim, for he has never journeyed depths of this nature.  He was used to sitting with the Goddess, but not having her to completely engulf him in her unbridled passion.  This wasn’t his fault, as he was still growing and healing.  Through our energy that intermingled, we healed parts of our Soul that was lost and broken.  I do not think he saw the bigger picture of our relationship, as we did enjoy each other very much, but in the now.

As I sit here on my porch, watching the sun set, I am reminded of him.  I am reminded of the passion my fellow fire sign and I shared.  I miss his songs, the way the music just bled from his fingers.  Oh how he showed me that healing relationships are one thing, a strong, equal beloved is quiet another.  As he stood before me, towering above me, staring down with those hungry eyes, I knew that I was too much for this handsome dark haired young man.  Seeing his vulnerability completely exposed, I knew he would not be able to endure the unexpected storms and the relentless passion that worshiping his Goddess would demand of him to do.  He could only accept the healing, the sacred bonding that this relationship would provide, so he could move on down his path. He has great things ahead of him, he just first needed his soul washed cleaned…..as did I.

Blessings,

The Journey and Shaman

I have been studying my Wood tarot.  Those cards have the energy of the ancestors, so they are a bit hard for me to read every day.  These cards are more of the energy of going inward, just more of a self examination type energy.  Now I am stuck on the Shaman.  My first card was the Journey card, that is the Death card in regular tarot, but that one is where I was introduce to “purification through fire”.  So, here I sit with the Shaman.  This is not an easy energy at all, as the Shaman does walk between the world as well as being one with all.  Intent, your gifts…becoming one with them.  Am I using my gifts to the best of my abilities?  What am I doing with my certifications…my intuitive skills…my connection to the Great Goddess and God?  I am feeling a bit of being stuck.  Even with my writing, that I adore, I hardly do it as it is like things go completely blank as soon as I sit down.

Today is the Summer Solstice with the New moon coming up in a couple days..and I havent even paid attention to what is going on in the cosmos or even tapped into Mother’s energy.  Looking into the mirror is hard, as things get real quick.  Am I being blocked?  Well then, I ask myself…when have I meditated?  when have I took time for ME just me not doing work.  The path of the Priestess is not an easy path.  You are the cycles, you are the changes.  You build and then you tear down….only to rebuild again.  The trick is learning how to do this all like its an every day thing.

The Summer Solstice is our longest day, the day the Sun is at his zenith.  After this day, the days will get shorter, preparing us for the God being struck down, to our ultimate harvest festival then to his rebirth.  The Goddess spins her Wheel, we have to learn to dance with it.

Dancing with the Wheel,

Summoning the Fate Verdandi

2013-09-10-ScreenShot20130909at4.45.47PM

I am nearing closer to the ritual, and I am feeling the anticipation soaring through my body. I have had my brain full of thoughts, ideas but when I go to write it just disappears. May be some things are meant to be out floating around the net. It has been so busy, I feel like some times I can’t come up for breath.  I am having to draw my boundaries and enforce them.  My job has been quiet challenging, as I am working a lot and not taking some time to myself.  We’ve had to let go 2 people, one has been a complete idjit and a total let down…but this was all foretold to the lady I work with. She asks for our opinion, we tell her what we see, and she just let stuff go on and on.  I do not understand why she keeps investing in people just because of their beautiful words. This frustration has made a lot of resistance develop with in my life, so I am having to step back.  There was a lot of energy placed in this person, on just a word.  At times, it feels as if those intuitive abilities that she wants in her people are not respected by her. She is so ecstatic that she let go of this guy, its like she finally worked up the nerve.  For me, if I am paying your pay check, you work for me and I am not intimidated by you.  I am glad she is learning to honor her own boundaries, and I do believe it is a ripple of the work that I have been doing ( this boundary thing is affecting my friend as well).

The phase of life I am in, is about learning what I want, focusing, and taking the bull by the horns.  I have became a master multi-tasker, and a bit of a workaholic.  I am having to learn to step back and take some ME time.  There is a lot of stuff I am wanting to do, but I am staying worn out (from working all the time and running here, there, and yonder) that I just want to chill for a while.  I do not like not having the ME time that I so need.  Balance.  I am having to learn how to juggle all of my life, having it work simultaneously together. The new moon is approaching, so I am feeling some time inner is needed.  I feel like some thing is holding me back…but what?  Is this just the energy I am in as I prepare for initiation?  I just feel like I am at a turning point. I am so not the person I was in the beginning of this journey.  I have become so guarded with my energy, and who I share it with.  The Maiden Goddess has fully turned int o the Mother Goddess as I see that all things have limits.  Even within myself, my flower-child-side has calmed down. I am not so free with myself.  I do feel some inner anger, and it comes about when some one tries to “figure me out”.  Really??  Is that anger an emotional reaction to fear? Am I just afraid of what is to come?  Laziness??  Past dreams keep coming back to me, and I feel like they are playing out.  I really am feeling this transition.  The new moon will be in Gemini, and She’s all about integrating the dualities of life.  Venus in Mars right now is really putting the focus on self, and what truly serves me for the greatest benefit. North Node in Leo is just bluntly asking me what works for me, what do I truly want in life, what is my authentic expression……What brings me joy, what does it look like to walk my own path, right here and now, what is my Soul’s desire?

I am feeling a great bit more transition, not really clear on what that will be, but I trust that it will be of my own accord.  I actually feel like the whole world is having a huge energetic shift.  I am beginning to see many things that I have been manifesting come into being and I feel really good about that.  I just got to trust in my magic more.  Witches are born from the inside out, so I am being birthed.  All these feelings cant be written, only experienced.

Blessings,

Solar Return

birds

I just had my birthday/solar return, and it is falling on a 7 year so this is a bit heavy for me.  I dont mean in a bad way, just one of “it’s time to get off ya booty” type feeling.  I feel the transitions a’comin.  When the Goddess works on you, there are things that happen that you just dont get at the present time, but as you allow the unfolding, makes perfect sense.  When I surrendered to my path, stop fighting and trying to deny who I am and my gifts for that matter I felt the roots dig deep.  I speak of roots a lot, because they are important for us.  That is one reason so many appear to be flopping around like a fish out of water…they do not have roots.  I do not care what any one says, training in any path is a great thing, as it has truly made a difference in my life.  One thing you get is history…..you have to know the history of your path and the people.  Far too many times, I see people post false stuff about things they have no idea about.  Then when presented with facts, they say well I will believe my brothers and sisters…never mind what the truth is.  Training in the beginning and experience are two things that are necessary. You can have all kinds of Phds and be all kinds of book smart, but if you havent had the experience you really dont know how it actually feels and what it truly means to walk that path.  This goes for anything.  Would you want a doctor operating on you that wasnt trained??  Why would you treat your spiritual health the same way?  But thats another story….

So, here I am on this threshold of new beginnings, as well as endings.  I am seriously tired of being held back, especially by people I have to pull along.  It truly amazes at all the ideas I have pop into my mind, only having to figure out how to produce them and actually getting them on paper is a different story.  I love my path, and I want to share it and teach it with all who want to walk it.  It is not for every one, and that is perfectly OK with me. The Goddess calls her own.  With this solar return, I am very much feeling her changing me within.  I feel the need of caring less of what others think of me, and focusing more on me…not in the selfish ways, but on the gifts that I have and can offer to others.  Training to be a Priestess, you put yourself in a teaching role, and I am really trying my best to learn all that I can learn in order to serve the Goddess.

As I march on my path, I am seeing how others have taken sacred words and spread them across the ether as if they are nothing.  There has been a watering down of my path, with so many twisting and turning it to fit them and their needs.  How selfish can one be?  I have witness folks wanting us to change our over 300 yr tradition just to suit them, really??  This type of selfish attitude is slowing taking the traditions (training you will not get out of books) back under ground….and maybe that is what it will take. In order to preserve, we must keep secret.  The problems we run into is that we believe people will take things in consideration the way we do….and then we sadly learn they will not.

Soon I will walk through the threshold of my second degree, where I will accept my role as a teacher of my path. Then, it will be my job to preserve this Goddess path, it will be my role to correct the misinformed. Not that I know all, but a tradition is a tradition. Change is inevitable, yes, but the core remains the same. My tradition, just like many Pagan Celtic traditions, teaches one to look to nature.  I will honor the Great Goddess, the Divine Feminine and I will do my part to bring back the sanctity of the gift of being a woman.  Honoring my God, I will see the powerful role of protector the Divine Masculine emanates.  I will listen to the ancestors speak with me through the wind. I will honor my elders who have gone before me, sharing their knowledge and experience.  Watch her cycles, watch her other creations; how do they respond and interact with each other, what are their cycles, what is their place in this world?  Reconnect with Mother Earth and just watch what she will teach you!  Compare it to the world around you.

Blessings,

Sirona Rose
