How did I come to the Goddess? “Naturally” is kind of the best answer. I began speaking with “The Lady” in my bedroom at night when I was five years old. There has always been a strong connection for me with the dead that has led to me forging deep relationships with the Dark Mothers. For my whole life, I have been able to “see” spirit and I have had prophetic dreams, usually about transitions. I was not exposed to organized religion until I was eight years old and I went to Catholic School. The poor nuns had their hands full with me because I was naturally curious and not afraid to ask questions. I remember being outraged as a young girl that I couldn’t be a priest! Thankfully, the Goddess made Herself known to me throughout my young life and I was a voracious reader and natural researcher.
The Universe and the Goddess conspired to deliver me to South Florida in 1993. Within weeks of moving, I met the woman who would be my best friend. We did (and still do!) an enormous amount of exploring, seeking, researching, experiencing, channeling and more together. In just a few months of moving, I found myself working an all night coffeehouse at a local metaphysical store every Saturday night. My full time job was in healthcare during the week. Weekends were magical and I met so many people – so many types of practitioners on every kind of spiritual path you can imagine. Members from the Pagan Community were frequent visitors and I got to learn firsthand about the different covens, beliefs, and lineages: Gardnerians, Welsh, Strega, Celtic Trad – they all came through the doors to hang out on the weekends, plus metaphysical practitioners and Ceremonial Magicians. It was an incredible education that lasted several years. Later, I would do the same coffeehouse at another popular metaphysical store and meet an entirely new community.
I studied energy work with several metaphysical teachers and began assisting, then leading, weekly Channeling Circles. All of my spare time was spent reading and practicing. When I expressed dissatisfaction over the rituals that I was finding in books, one of my teachers simply asked, “Why don’t you write your own?” So, I did.
In early 1996, the Goddess Hekate manifested to me. This manifestation led me to formally accept the Mantle of Priestess of Hekate. During the next several years, I stepped more and more fully into the role of Priestess. Life was busy and exciting and in late 1996, my son was born. I juggled motherhood, my career, my own spiritual path and study, plus ritual activities with an eclectic group of magickal practitioners that were from varied traditions – wiccan, pagan, ceremonial, even voudun. I led rituals that ranged from three people to over a hundred and gave lectures in community bookstores, on radio and at Pagan gatherings. In 1999, I began a study and practice group for just women. The Moons were women only but we would open other celebrations to men. Our focus was ritual development, energy work and exploring the Goddess in myth and meditation.
In 2000, I formally initiated with an occult esoteric order and pursued several further initiations in the next few years with them. I still maintained the women’s study group and as I was teaching, my own studies were focused on the Qabalah, ceremonial magic and advanced magical practice. I also went through a complete hysterectomy – the loss of my ovaries and uterus rocked my world and reinforced my ties to the Dark Mothers.
As my practice grew, I found that I loved working with women’s groups. Two Priestesses and myself began setting up a women’s temple with a two-year Priestess Curriculum and initiation process. I straddled two worlds for several years: Esoteric personal practice and Goddess teaching within the women’s temple.
In late 2005, my world completely changed. I met a man, fell in love, resigned from the women’s temple, and moved across country to Arizona. I maintained connections to the esoteric order and was very active there. Over the next few years, I got married, moved to London and then back to the USA. It was a busy time with an immense amount of focus on my professional career. My spiritual practice became very personal rather than outward. I also forged new connections with the Bright Goddesses and learned a tremendous amount about balance.
Fast forward to the present. At this writing, I am back in Florida – like the turning of a huge wheel. I am separated from my husband and after healing for some time over that split, I am coming back to MYSELF. What a joy!
As well, I have recently undertaken the path of Aborisha within the Lukumi religion to formalize my relationship with the Orishas. After many years of loving them and working with them as a non-initiate, I am delighted to be recognized as a Daughter of Oshun and to be formally studying. Maferefun, Oshun!
