When you realize you have magic (intuition, BIG dreams, psychic ways of knowing…), it’s not uncommon to feel a bit alone in the world.
That’s because Western culture is not set up to help people who have strange experiences and see invisible things.
We’re often labeled as weird or woo-woo or any number of pejorative terms.
But I’ve met countless people who have crazy dreams and unusual waking life experiences who are quite sane and grounded, yet who have no idea how to work with these gifts.
I know what it’s like. I was one of them.
Waking and Walking Between Worlds
If you have spiritual gifts like being empathic or psychic, it’s likely you didn’t get the guidance you needed to joyfully express these gifts in useful ways. More often than not, people in the Western world feel isolated and weird when they realize they are different than those around them.
My initiation into my spiritual gifts happened when I was five. I remember very clearly waking up one night to find my mom standing next to my bed, holding a glass of water out to me. As I reached for the water, though, she vanished into thin air. I wasn’t sure what to make of the unusual hypnopompic experience, but it stayed locked in my mind, drawing me deeper into a life spent living in two worlds. I slept a lot so I could dream.
The more I dreamed, the more my dream life took center stage. But when I was 22 something shifted.
I started doing shamanic journeys without knowing that’s what they were, and received verifiable information during my quests.
I received psychic information in my dreams and in waking life.
And then I began to have spontaneous OBEs (out-of-body experiences).
I was confused. I felt alone. I had no idea what was going on. And the only people I could think of to ask for help–my parents–would never have known how to help me so I didn’t ask them.
If you’ve ever felt this way, you’re not alone, and there’s a fun way you can begin to connect more deeply with your true nature while becoming part of a community of people who truly get you and your gifts.
Dreaming of Your Ancestors
Long ago, so long ago you may not have any record of them, you probably had ancestors who lived close to the land, who were deeply empathic, maybe even psychic. They may have been shamans, herbalists, healers, seers, or had any number of roles. To learn more about them you might be tempted to head on over to Ancestry.com, but this type of information isn’t often found in books or genealogical research.
So what can you do? You can dream about them.
Decades ago, my ancestors started visiting me in my dreams. They showed me my ancestral drums and ceremonies. Nordic ritual drums. Jewish mystical dances. Welsh ceremonies to help pass down power from generation to generation.
But I also had sleeping dreams of American Indian medicine people. They taught me, protected me, and led me on vision quests. I even dreamed of Sun Dances and ceremonies which were not of my people, but the people’s of this continent.
I know now that the seeds of soul calling are revealed in dreams, and I was being called to walk in two world.
What does it mean to be a Dream Priestess in modern times?
In my work, I enter the dreamtime and travel between worlds to gather information. In the process I help my clients retrieve lost soul parts, confront their demons, and clear energetic blocks and ancestral wounds that prevent them from living in alignment with their soul’s purpose.
Many of my clients are healers in their own right, who like me were at one point (or still are) confused about how to navigate this tricky calling.
One of the reasons I founded the Dream Priestess™ Apprenticeship Program was to help usher in a new era of dream healers; to provide sanctuary for those who do not understand their initiation experiences, or their wild and crazy dreams. To create an authentic pathway that is not steeped in other cultures traditions, yet honors the old ways.
I am committed to helping people like you explore your own path, whether you are a transformational coach or healer, or a business consultant or lawyer.
That’s why I share my story with you. It’s my way of calling together a new tribe: a global group of healers, of dreamers, of conscious people who are ready to step more fully into the role of Big Dreamer.
