We are talking all things jade eggs on The Priestess Podcast today. And I couldn’t imagine a better person to do that with than the wonderful Heather Rebecca Wilson. Heather explains to us the ancient beginnings of the jade egg practice and how it was used by priestesses then, to its eventual modernisation now. Heather in particular shares how using a jade egg can enhance not just our sex life but our pelvic floor health and even ability to be able to heal from sexual, racial and ancestral trauma. It’s amazing to listen in to a woman speak so passionately about such an ancient practice in a fresh and modern way.
All of us are transitioning in our lives constantly. We are moving, growing, ageing, cycling and changing all the time. It’s not a part of our lives we can resist if we want to have the privilege of living and growing older - no matter how comfy our comfort zone may be. Despite the fact that change and transition is inevitable in life, it often can come with a lot of personal and spiritual stretching - that let’s face it - doesn’t always feel the best when we are in the thick of it. Our egos can flare, we can feel out of control, and have a desire, even though we know it’s probably not best for us, to remain where we are. Rachel MacDonald, my guest on The Priestess Podcast today, has experienced some large transitions of her own in the past few years, especially since becoming a mother. She talks with us today about how powerful transitions are in our life if we embrace them and provides incredibly soulful and practical insights on how to manage transitions well if you are in the midst of a big one now yourself.
Starting a business can sound like there is a lot of freedom based fun to be had and that absolutely can be the case. What will also be the case - because it is for every business - is a lot of challenging work and at times really stretching personal growth. We can fall into traps of comparing ourselves to others, doing what others think is best for us rather than ourselves and following the crowd. My guest today on The Priestess Podcast - Kerry Rowett - works with entrepreneurs from all over the world to ensure that they remain in deep alignment with their own values and calling so that the work they do in the world is a true and divine reflection of who they are. This can be easier said than done when we are growing and changing all the time, but so necessary in bringing our spiritual and creative gifts to life in all we do.
Jane Hardwicke Collings is direct, bold and some would say unrelenting in her passion and purpose to help women reclaim rites of passage, long denied to them by the patriarchy. You will soon learn, as my guest on The Priestess Podcast today, that Jane is a no holds barred Priestess of powerful proportions, and her desire for women to feel more deeply connected to the cycle of life through birth, menarche, pregnancy, menopause, decay and death. Todays podcast is going to be of particular interest to you if you are a bleeding woman or one who is potentially going through the life stage of peri-menopause or menopause - or if you have ever birthed a baby. Such things are of course not synonymous with being or identifying as a woman, however for many of us they play a hugely significant role in our lives - and not always in a positive way. Jane’s mission in life is to change this which she is absolutely doing through her worldwide events, workshops, books, teachings and the School of Shamanic Womancraft which she founded.
