The Priestess Path is ancient and modern.
It is a path
walked by countless women throughout time
who love the Divine
and wish to be of service.
This is an eternal path, available to all and owned by no one.
At the dawn of recorded history,
the Priestess Path was available to all women
as a valid and honored station in society.
Priestesses held positions of influence and power
and were afforded a beautiful, sensual sovereignty.
Then, the dark times came,
and the Path and the priestesses who walked it were forced underground
in order to survive, we honor them.
And now, the Priestess Path is being recovered.
A woman who walks this path is a lover of Spirit.
She is beckoned by the Divine,
as a lover beckons its beloved.
You will know this calling as a yearning in your heart
for sacredness, peace, harmony,
You will want to unify with the power of Spirit
to heal yourself and help this world.
This yearning will tug on you
like a small child pulling at its mother’s hem
beckoning you to remember
who you truly are.
THE DIVINE IS THE SOURCE
of all we know and love.
A priestess knows this and
sings love songs, writes poetry, dances in bliss
and offers her soul to care for the sacred —
Just as a fierce lioness protects and loves her young.
If this is alive in you, you will know it.
A priestess feels it in her bones
that the Divine is the fabric of her being
and she sources her power from this place.
Initiations naturally occur and if they are met,
they temper the soul
like a sword that has been
time and time again
until it is sharp and clean.
And then, it is ceremonially dedicated to protect the sacred.
And yet, our true teachers are like a watery oasis on a long desert journey.
A priestess is a Vessel
who has made herself open to be filled with light.
She is married to the light of Spirit–
because this is her wish and will.
Some priestesses walk in silence,
And some are called to build temples.
The Priestess Path is intimate and unique —
a Beauty Way
meant to be walked as a Blessing.
