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 began to sleep a lot so I could revel in the rich, mythic dreams I had nightly. 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–had no idea how to help me.
If you’ve ever felt this way, you’re not alone, there are many of us in the world. The good news is that there’s a fun way to connect more deeply with your essential nature while becoming part of a community of people who get you and your gifts.
Dreaming of Your Ancestors
Long ago, so long ago you may not have any record of them, your ancestors lived close to the land. They may have been shamans, herbalists, healers, seers, or had any number of spiritually significant roles that helped their society thrive. To learn more about these ancestors you might be tempted to head over to Ancestry.com, but this type of information isn’t often found in books or genealogical research.
So how can you find out more? You can dream for information.
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 ancestors of this continent.
I now know that the seeds of soul calling are revealed in dreams, and I was simply being called to walk in two world.
What does it mean to be a Dream Priestess in modern times?
I am a dream walker, energy tracker, herbalist, invoking Soul Medicine to help women live from their Essence.
Historically, a dream priestess was one part healer and one part priestess, which was unusual for priestess roles in Ancient Greece. It was also unusual for priestess to preside over temples erected for a god, but the dream priestess, along with her fellow dream priests, dwelled in the temples Asklepius, god of dream healing.
In my work, I enter the dreamtime and travel between worlds to gather information. In the process I support my clients in healing mind, body, and soul by helping them 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, although most would call themselves coaches or consultants. Like me, they were at one point (or still are) confused about how to navigate their spiritual gifts so they can integrate them into their daily lives–relationships, career, income–with joyful satisfaction.
One of the reasons I began my work was to help usher in a new era of awakened and empowered women; to provide sanctuary for those who do not understand their initiation experiences, or their wild and crazy dreams. To create an authentic, spiritual pathway that is not steeped in other cultures’ traditions, yet honors the old ways.
Whether you are a transformational coach or healer, or a business consultant or lawyer, I am committed to helping you explore your own path.
That’s why I share my story with you. It’s my way of calling together a new tribe: a global group of healers, in the broad sense of the word, of dreamers, of conscious people who are ready to step more fully into the role of leader.
