I never take for granted what an extraordinary privilege it is every time a guest is a yes to coming on The Priestess Podcast. And I certainly feel that privilege and honour today with my guest Annabelle Sharman. I first met Annabelle at a beautiful workshop about Indigenous wisdom and sharing, where she gave me a healing. And it was while Annabelle was holding space for me that I received a call, retrieved via message just moments after, that a dear friend of mine had passed. It was not a timing coincidence. Annabelle and I have remained in touch and connection to each other ever since and I am constantly in awe of the beautiful and deeply healing work she puts out in the world. If you are a coach, counsellor, healer or space holder yourself, I’m honestly not sure there is someone I could recommend more highly right now to explore your own capacity to hold space and BE the guide you most long to be. This is Annabelle’s magick - bringing out your own - through her Yuma Healing.
In general whenever I have thought about Goddess Temples, visions of the ancient world have come into my minds eye from places such as Greece, Rome, Mesopotamia and Crete. Thinking about a Goddess Temple in modern times was not something regular for me until I had the experience of going to one in Glastonbury in 2019. It’s challenging to describe how truly special it was to walk into a physical space entirely devoted to the Goddess; a haven of beauty, wisdom, devotion and spiritual guidance there for the greater good of all. And so when I learned that an incredible group of people were renovating a very special space right here in my home town of Melbourne, Australia, I could not get my special guest on the show today quick enough. Priestess Pia Gaia has grown up in a world entirely surrounded by the Goddess and she, along with a group of devoted humans, are creating a Goddess Temple in Melbourne devoted to The Great Mother. Pia shares with us today the journey to making this space happen and how it still continues now. If you’re as inspired as I am from listening to Pia, you’re going to be putting it on your must do list of spiritual places to visit very soon.
Have you ever drunk a feargarita? Not a MARgarita but a FEARgarita? Well I didn’t even know that such a concoction existed until I read about it on the website of my Priestess Podcast guest today - Hayley Carr. And in this interview ahead you’re about to dive into the world of this mindset maven and world champion sportswoman who is going to encourage you to DRINK UP! Hayley is one of the most incredible coaches I know in the personal development field right now. She has a particular passion for supporting incredible people with their mindset and how they can, in particular, dance with fear and uncertainty and make it work for them in every aspect of their calling. And so...the bar is open everyone. Step up and have a drink with Hayley and I today to move from fearful to fierce!
I think it’s reasonably safe to say that if you are blessed enough to be alive and listening to The Priestess Podcast right now you have dreams that you would love to come true. Hopes, desires and wants for the life you want to lead - as a spiritual expression of your soul and who you truly are. What does it really take to embrace those dreams and make them happen? That is something of course that is going to be different for every person. What works for me or someone else may not work for you. And that’s what makes my guest on the show today - Leonie Dawson - so fascinating. As an author, course guide and artist, Leonie has created a multi-million dollar business doing what she is deeply passionate about, and she has touched hundreds of thousands of lives in doing so. She’s quirky, creative, has extremely strict but loving boundaries on her time and needs, and is living proof of what can be possible when you fully embrace your dreams and reach for the life that you most want.
