Still doing a lot of thinking about my Qadishtu path.
Listening to a book right now with some ideas that i’d really like to put in practice. She is talking about somatic counseling. i’ve been lucky enough to have had a somatic counselor and have wanted to follow in his footsteps, but when he offered his class locally it was during the day while i was working. So, i didn’t get to take it 🙁
But, the ideas she talks about are things that i’ve done before. So, i’m thinking of putting another workshop together.
AND i just taught a class last week on being a survivor in a power exchange relationship. i’ve taught this class before, but with the political climate that seems to be so against women, it’s time to bring it back and teach it in more places. i’ve already had someone reach out from NYC that wants me to bring it there. Dan teaches this one with me and him sharing how he has dealt with a traumatized survivor that he helped turn into a thriver is very powerful.
More….there is more for me to study and more workshops and rituals for me to put together.
And it’s time for me to schedule the next POTQ2 (Path of the Qadishti) course for those that have graduated from POTQ1.
Angel Card drawn today…..
Take Back Your Power!
Archangel Raziel: “Use your God-given power and intention to manifest blessings in your life.”
Message: “You are a luminary: a sage, a wise one, a high-priestess/high priest, a wizard, and a supreme manifestor. Now is the time to summon up your spiritual strength and power and put your authority into action. Lovingly and firmly transform your intentions into reality. Say prayers about your intentions, and ask for guidance and signs to shape your manifestations to the highest possible level.”
Wow….i’ve never drawn this card and the feeling that it’s leaving me with is ….powerful.
“My God-given power and intention”……I wonder what that could be? Yes, I’m a high priestess but I don’t think I’ve ever figured out what my “God-given power” is. If I could figure that out, maybe I would know what my next step is.
For now, my next step is to join the HardPink Sisterhood. But, I’m not sure if that is the next step on my spiritual path. Creating OWAL (older women in alternative lifestyles) is part of my spiritual path, but I’m not sure how. It just feels like it.
Someone asked me tonight if I was going to have a Samhain ritual this year. I hadn’t planned on it because people haven’t been attenting rituals I’ve scheduled for the last year.
Looks like I have a topic to meditate on. Again. It’s not the first time I’ve meditated on what the next step on my spiritual path is.
So, after writing yesterday’s blog and sleeping on it and then while finishing listening to a book this morning ‘American Gods’ and starting to listen to a Wiccan book….I figured out why it is that I’m wanting to move forward on my path of sacred sexuality – it’s because it’s through sacred sexuality is how I connect with the Divine.
The Divine is within as well as without. It’s easier to connect with the Divine that is outside of us. We can see it in the cycle of birth and death. We can see it in miracles. We can see it in things of beauty that we can’t explain, in the birth of a child, in the gaze of creatures, in the growth of plants. But, we also have Divine within us and the easiest way for me to tap into that is through sexual energy.
Sexual energy is one of the most powerful energies to work with. I want to further my spirtual path and growth through using sexual energy. The depth of connection that is involved; the vulnerability; the compassion; the empowerment….all of that is part of my spiritual path. I need to embrace it, even if that means I travel the path alone.
