"I knew in that moment I was strong. I knew in that moment I could handle anything. And I knew in that moment I was connected to something so much greater than myself, and that my voice need to Be in the world. And I think in a sense the priestess path is about being in the world." - Vanessa Sage

Feel the Echo of the Earth

March 8, 2017
00:0000:00

Over the weekend, in the midst of a very busy day, I saw this phrase written on the mall wall: "Feel the echo of the earth."

As I read those words, I felt those words. I felt my roots deepen. I felt myself sink in and trust at a deeper level.

Trust seems to be a theme that is up for a lot of people right now. The plans many of us set in motion with the new year are twisting and turning in unexpected ways and this creates an unsettled feeling . . . especially as we near the spring season, a time when the vision we nurtured through winter springs to life.

The thing is, many of us went very deep this winter. We did some deep healing and grew in profound ways. For many of us, this healing and growth has been triggered by all of the political turning over and just as rapidly as these political changes have come into effect, we too have been rapidly healing and transforming. We may not have sought out some of the transformation that is happening, and we may not yet see where it is leading us, but these unexpected twists and turns are bringing our vision into alignment with how much we have grown.

This is super cool and, this is intense. We are navigating new territory in our lives. Spirit is asking us to trust this new alignment by taking courageous leaps.

Feeling the echo of the earth is a powerful way to cultivate the level of trust we need right now. It is through the echo of the earth that we recognize this unique time in history and the unique role that we play in its unfolding. As we align with the earth's natural rhythm and feel the earth's natural timing, we come into harmony with that timing, we discover our natural timing and we trust ourselves to spring forward with bold and courageous action.

Our crystal friends are the bones of the earth, they carry the earth's echo and wisdom, and they are incredible allies for us as we surrender our defenses and open our hearts to possibility.

As you tune in for this week's episode of the Priestess Pathway Podcast, grab your favorite crystal and join me for a guided meditation to 'feel the echo of the earth.'

When Inspiration Strikes

February 21, 2017
00:0000:00

We are nearing a new moon (Sunday) and wow, the energy of inspiration is not only pouring in, but it is also beginning to become more and more focused! All of the ideas that came in with the full moon may be beginning to either come together and fall away as the most important idea emerges. This may be a specific goal or intention that begins to feel incredibly important to you for this year.

Over the weekend I really noticed this. Ideas for new jewelry collections began flooding in . . . in dream time, in waking time, while trimming trees in our gardens. I also know that when my inspiration begins to feel more focused there is a part of me that wants to rush into action like the honey-bees that emerged over the weekend looking for food (It's been unusually warm in Wisconsin right now and I share more about the bees in this week's podcast. Listen below). But it is still technically winter and it is still time to really receive what is coming in and allow it to become more and more clear before stepping into action in the spring season. 

But, with the energy flowing there are ways that we can open our creative channels and allow that current to guide us and create more focus and clarity around our intention or goal for the year. 

Listen in to discover three great practices for opening your creative channels . . .

Let’s Get Rooted + 4 Jewels for Strong Roots

February 2, 2017
00:0000:00

Let's get rooted!

This topic has been in my heart for the past couple weeks . . . especially as we, in the US, inaugurated a new president. Lots of changes. Lots of uproar. And Lots of uprooting of what many of us perceived to be the very foundation of our lives and of our country.

In many ways this feels like a point of complete turning over.

Right now many of us are experiencing some level of the chaos that ensues such drastic and unexpected changes. We are experiencing emotions that may feel unfamiliar. We are struggling to understand and at the same time finding ourselves not only called into a whole new level of action, but also taking action that may have been previously uncharacteristic. Action inspired by the deepest parts of ourself. Some part of self has awakened in this process and we are saying “I will not go back to sleep. I will no longer remain silent.” Yet at the same time we wonder ‘how?’.

During this time I have been finding myself called to work with my roots and my favorite root chakra jewels.

The messages that seem to be just pouring forward are that now is a time to rise. Now is a time to let go of any fear, resistance, and untruth that previously interfered with our willingness to stand in what we know to be true and what we believe at the deepest levels of our soul. 

Listen in and discover how you too can work with these beautiful allies to root deeper into your knowing of you and the unique ways you are here to contribute to the world at this time. 

2017 Crystal Forecast

January 10, 2017
00:0000:00

The ritual of creating a personal, yearlong forecast is a wonderful way to gain insight into the year ahead (we dove into this in last weeks episode of the Priestess Pathway Podcast: What's in the Cards for You in 2017?) . . . and along with creating a personal forecast I like to take a look at what is happening on a collective level.

The crystals have been telling me they are going to be playing a very important role in how this year unfolds (and personally I've committed to myself that 2017 is all about crystals . . . I'm so excited!). So with that in mind I turned to my deck of crystal cards and created a 12 month spread to reflect the collective for 2017. (want to see the gorgeous card images? . . . check them out here: http://loriaandrus.com/2017-crystal-forecast/)

So in this week's episode I share the 2017 Crystal Forecast and dive deeper into each of the crystals channeling their messages and wisdom for the year. Listen in and discover what the crystals have to say about 2017!

What is in the cards for you in 2017?

January 3, 2017
00:0000:00

Happy New Year! And welcome 2017!

I don't know about you, but I am so excited to be entering the energy of this new. Over the past couple weeks I have been feeling a sense of freshness, new opportunity, and a feeling that I can only describe as 'having a clean slate'. Even as I write this and I feel it, I know this sensation is much deeper, but those are the words that come forward to verbalize it.

So I'm curious, what are you feeling as you step forward into this new year? Are you too feeling the sense of freshness, new opportunity, and possibly a clean slate?

Well . . . I think many of us are. My numerology friends tell me this is because we are entering a '1' collective year, a year of new beginnings and fresh starts. I like that. It feels in alignment.

Today I'd like to share with you one of my favorite new year rituals! . . . A New Year Oracle Reading.

This is a ritual I do each year around the first of the year. It offers wonderful insight into what I can anticipate in the coming year.

Tune in and discover how you can do your own 2017 oracle reading and discover what is in the cards for you this year!

p.s. I reference a link for the reflection questions and the sheet to record your reading . . . here it is: http://loriaandrus.com/whats-in-the-cards/
