What we may not necessarily know a great deal about however is the role that we can play in healing the earth metaphysically and spiritually and even what a commitment to our own personal health has to do with that work as well. My incredible guest on the Priestess Podcast today Dr Mahdi Mason is a passionate environmental consultant and is here to share with us today ways we can metaphysically heal the planet in ways that don’t just reduce our harm but can in fact reverse them.
Have you ever had a memory of a past life? I want to be honest with you and share that I THINK I have - but truth be told am not really sure. It’s an area for me that I’ve never really given deep thought to however I have now come into contact with many people for whom it is a significant part of their spiritual journey and who they consciously believe themselves to be today.
Andrea Lewis has had many past life memories and experiences and she shares those with us on today’s Priestess Podcast episode AND how you can know if dreams, thoughts, feelings or experiences you have had may be just a memory of yourself from a past life too.
I have always been fascinated by people’s journeys and experiences with the Goddess, most likely because it has been such a rich and beautiful part of my own spiritual path. And of course I am sure it comes as no surprise to you that no two journeys are the same - just as there are no two Goddesses the same either.
My guest today on the Priestess Podcast is High Priestess Je Tuan Jones and she shares with us in an incredibly powerful and also vulnerable way her own spiritual journey and work with the Goddess. How She came to her at a time when she was so needed and also how Je Tuan believes (just as I do) that the Goddess is a reflection of who we are at any given time and that is something that can change, grow and evolve over time.
When you are called to walk through life as a priestess how does that path show up if you are also a business owner? Is it possible to mirror the sacred magick of the priestess path with being an entrepreneur and needing to juggle a hundred balls at one time and also make decisions in what can feel like a sometimes competitive and challenging space?
My incredibly soulful and successful guest on The Priestess Podcast today Sarah Jenks is a living example of how you absolutely can. Sarah is a powerful priestess who presides over a modern temple that services thousands of women every year. She does so with grace, support and calling in the guidance of the Great Mother in everything she does. Sarah’s path and story will inspire you on how you can use priestess skills and magick to bring your business and even career further to life.
One of the things that I love most about my spiritual practice is having an altar. It is a special place for me to express my creativity, connect with my inner world and deepen my relationship with the Divine, Goddess and Universal spirit. And yes, besides all that it’s simply a beautiful space that for me is most often filled with candles, flowers, crystals, oracle cards and treasured possessions that ignite my soul.
My special guest on The Priestess Podcast today is Rachel Ross and Rachel if it’s even possible has a deeper love of altars than even I do. She is a divine expert in their creation, intention and sacred meaning and how creating your own altar can help you get in touch with the deepest parts of yourself. If you have never created an altar for yourself before - get ready to be inspired by Rachel to do so very soon.
Is it possible to have a presence on social media that is soulful and even sacred? You could be forgiven for thinking it isn’t with the literally millions of people on there and the fact that it sometimes means we have a device in our hands or in front of our eyes seemingly all the time. It is however possible - more than possible - as my guest Ellie Swift shares with us today on The Priestess Podcast.
Ellie is a social media strategist who is always up with the latest trends of social media and online business. This means she has incredible insights into the ways we can show up and use social media for our life, career, business, content creation and even client attraction in ways that mean we can use it smarter and not harder. And being smart with social media is all about you expressing it and using it in a way that feels right and soulful and reverent to YOU - not you thinking that you have to do it one way, or like someone else, or that somehow you are not in control. Here’s to us all using social media in a way that is authentic, genuine and truly lights us up. Because when we do that - we attract towards us more beautiful people that align with us meaning we can really bring the ‘social’ part of social media to life.
Is there anything more important for a woman in life than to own and stand in her power and use that to create a life that is sovereign, strong and in service? My amazing guest today on The Priestess Podcast, Kemi Nekvapil, would likely say there isn’t because so much of our joy and conscious achievements in life stem directly from our relationship with power and how willing we are to claim it for ourselves.
In this episode Kemi serves up her special magic that has come from decades of working in the wellness and personal development industries and why she believes that it’s time - more than time - for women to change their relationship to power both individually and collectively. To do it for themselves and all other women around them in example and inspiration of what it can truly mean, look like and feel like to be the sovereign Queen of our own lives.
I have many important and valued relationships in my life and I hope that I could say that I put time into nurturing them all as best I can. One of those relationships is with Mother Earth, or in the Celtic lineage that I am, from The Great Mother. Connecting with her more deeply and feeling her neverending love and nurturing for me has been a huge part of my priestess path and so when I get a chance to speak with other passionate people about Her greatness like my guest today Jamie Marloo Thomas - I get incredibly excited.
Jamie is an indigenous man who is devoted to earth connection and healing through his discipline of Wayapa Wurrk. Today we dive into what this practice is all about, Jamie’s passion for the healing gifts of the Mother and how we can all benefit from seeing the direct connection between our spirits and the land we walk on every day.
I’m very happy to admit to you that I am a bonafide fan girl of my guest on The Priestess Podcast today - Sera Beak. Sera is an extraordinary religious scholar, author and speaker whose work in the world I feel has just begun. Sera’s latest book - Redvelations - is right up there with one of my favourite books of 2018. It’s searing, poignant, beautiful, tragic, hopeful and mysterious. In Redvelations Sera takes us on a journey of soul and finding herself again after reaching a point in her life of feeling lost, untethered and broken. Her experiences along the way including her encounters with Jesus, Mary Magdalene and especially their daughter Sarah, make for a rich and incredible journey - one that Sera shares so openly and with such courage. Suspend your belief or disbelief for the next 30 minutes and allow Sera to take you on this journey. You won’t regret it.
Sometimes when you’re doing something live things don’t quite go to plan - or - do they? My brilliant and truly inspirational guest today Dr Danielle Arabena comes from a long line of indigenous people who honour the gift of life through story-telling and our interview today has in fact turned out to be more of a story and sharing of Danielle’s life and gifts as an indigenous doctor, healer, witch and blood priestess. Her story is one that has lessons and guidance in it for all of us. It’s one to tune into with your whole heart for the messages it contains within that are especially for you.
The beauty industry that targets women in deliberate ways to make them feel bad, unattractive, less than they truly are and small, is a patriarchal oppressive construct that needs a total shake down. There! I said it. If you, like me, are totally over being sold bs wrinkle creams, lightening spot pens, cellulite fixers and more - all of which detract from our true spiritual essence and beauty - you’re going to love my guest on The Priestess Podcast today Bronwyn Stange. Bron has created an incredibly powerful new range of beauty products called BoPo Women and is disrupting the beauty industry as she does. Even more than that she’s started a movement to support women to feel truly beautiful and empowered as.they.are and is a part of the new wave of body positive feminists who are making a true difference in how we can learn to appreciate all body shapes, sizes, colours and abilities.
There is a first time for everything and today’s episode is the first time a guest has cried, and I have cried with her, on The Priestess Podcast. It was a spontaneous and natural response to pain, and expressed pain, and it shines a light on how desperately we need our spiritual communities, work and lives to be more inclusive of black, indigenous and people of colour. My guest today Sonali Fiske helps us to understand that while every one of us likely knows what it feels like at some time to be excluded from something, when that erasure and inclusion stems from the right of each of us to practice and express and lead in our spirituality the way that fits and feels best with our culture and practices, it is beyond painful and damaging. Sonali’s presence on the podcast today is a spiritual call to action for all of us.
Mary Magdalene was the very last person I ever thought would come to me as a guide in my life. Why I had that thought I am still not really sure but come to me she did while journeying through an intense shamanic experience and I am so blessed to say she is still with me and a large part of my own spiritual counsel. Mary to me embodies love, heart, faith, courage, strength, commitment and my guest on the Priestess Podcast today Mariaestela Gullestrup is right there with me. As the host of The Magdalene Voices podcast, Mariaestela shares her special love of Mary and her own thoughts on who Mary the woman was - which are quite different at this point in time in my life - to my own. It makes for a rich and wonderful conversation about the extraordinary spiritual leader that Mary was.
My guest on the Priestess Podcast today, Thérèse Cator and I were supposed to have an interview all about your light within and shining that out to the world. And while we have done that, truth is when you are in the presence of a truly beautiful light and human being like Thérèse, that’s just the surface of what you dive into. Thérèse shares with us her special thoughts on everything from love, liberation, getting free, letting our true selves be out and whole in the world and stepping into great roles of spiritual leadership. It’s an episode you’re going to want to return to again and again.
Academic. Nurse. Theologian. Psychotherapist. Life Coach. Priestess. These are just some of the extraordinary roles and paths my guest on The Priestess Podcast today Eva Cruz Peña has been in her life. All of them have helped Eva arrive at a time where she is fully embracing her Puerto Rican heritage and spiritual leadership role as a Latina Priestess. Eva shares her special culture and spirituality with us and her own journey to wholeness in this episode, after a childhood of disowning and leaving parts of herself behind, only to have them be reclaimed and an integral part of her life as a priestess now.
Medicine Priestess. Even just saying those words feels so gentle and healing to me and I think gentle and healing is a perfect way to describe my guest on The Priestess Podcast today Yaya Erin Rivera Merriman. Erin has been a true plant medicine woman since she was a child and as she explains to us in this episode she comes from a long cultural line of family who have done the same. Erin is particularly passionate about plant medicine as a healing tool for those who have experienced bullying or emotional trauma, and she shares with us the special magic of her off-grid modern mystery school and her hopes, dreams and desires for that for the future.
As my special guest on The Priestess Podcast today – Simran N’Golet would say – we are about to dive into the deep end of ‘the woo.’ And that deep end in this episode involves talking about galactic heritages, planets, other dimensions, aliens and most of all starseeds. And why not? This is a podcast about all forms of spirituality and spiritual connection – and that’s why I wanted to have Simran on to talk about her life as a starseed, what that is and how she believes – and I now do too – that there are many people who are starseeds emerging in the world and who may not even realise it. It’s a fascinating and rich conversation that may just open you up to a whole new dimension beyond this world – and even beyond that as well.
It’s likely that you have heard the word seer, but maybe like me, you are not sure exactly what one is or does. Tracy Neely, my guest on The Priestess Podcast today identifies as many extraordinary things and a seer is one of them. This special gift has been with Tracy since childhood but didn’t truly come forth in her life and work until a health crisis unfolded in – of all places – her dentists chair. That moment and experience changed Tracy’s life, opening her up to her own seer wisdom. She shares her journey to this space with us and also how you can begin to access your own powerful healing questions, inner world, and love of silence, to support you to ignite your own seer wisdom.
There are so many ways we can more deeply connect with our spiritual selves - and rituals are one of those. You may just think that a ritual is something witchy and involves really complex mantras or crystal grids or various other spiritual accoutrements – but truly, rituals don’t have to involve any of those things at all if we don’t want them to. My beautiful guest on The Priestess Podcast today – Alexandra Roxo – is passionate about the power of everyday rituals in our life and in particular how they can help us with our own healing. Rituals can be small or big, short or long and involve lots of beautiful tools or none at all. This episode will inspire you to find sacred meaning in so many things that you may already be doing in your life – and can further create as well.
I am thrilled today to have on The Priestess Podcast Leesa Renee Hall who I consider to be an incredible guide and mentor to me in my life right now. Leesa is a creative word artist and social historian with a passion for helping people unpack their internal biases – especially whiteness – and show up in the world as more compassionate and whole human beings. Today Leesa and I discuss a shared passion around ancestry and our cultural lineages and why these are so important on our spiritual journeys, especially in efforts not to appropriate other cultures and spiritual practices, and truly ground ourselves in our own rich heritage. Learning who you truly are and where you truly come from requires you to go beyond the grave and I hope my conversation with Leesa today inspires you to do just that.

Priestess Grace Funk is passionate about rites of passage such as menarche, menopause and death and in this episode of The Priestess Podcast she shares more about what these rites can mean to us on a spiritual level and why it’s so important we embrace them.

Sharyn Holmes is a deeply powerful and sacred leader in her own way. Infusing her own blend of spirituality, sacredness, introverted leadership and activism, Sharyn is a truth teller of the highest order - with a call to action in her words, poetry and actions. In this episode of The Priestess Podcast, Sharyn shares what she believes to be glaringly missing from the spiritual and entrepreneurial worlds right now and how it is white people who need to be the ones to initiate deep and prolonged change in those worlds for the betterment of us all, but mostly for those who identify as black, indigenous or a person of colour.
What does power mean to you? Have you ever thought about it in the context of your spirituality and sacredness? In this episode of The Priestess Podcast Women’s Healing Educator Kim Bady shares her journey from being a pastor’s wife to a divorced sacred feminine leader, embracing and waking the Goddess within her, reclaiming her sacred power and embodying the feminine face of God. It is a beautiful personal journey that may just have you reflect on where you can and may even need to reclaim your own sacred power.
