Home & Hearth Magick: Rooting into sacred space

Our home is our anchor, container and shelter that nourishes us so we can do our work in the outside world. Our home is where we should be able to relax, ground, feel safe & replenished. Some say the home is an extension or reflection of our inner self. It must feel like our own personal sanctuary that allows us to drop our masks and be our authentic selves so that we can successfully navigate the demands of our roles in the world. 

Living By The Moon: cycles & emotional well-being

Time was recorded by our ancient ancestors in a lunar fashion. If we follow the moon, there are actually 13 months of the year. The number 13 is still often considered ‘bad luck’, which is a symptom of old patriarchal beliefs equating the moon as feminine and the feminine as negative, dangerous or cursed.  The moon, however, isn’t phased by this (pun intended!)- she just does her thing, knowing the fullness of her power. The lunar cycle affects ocean tides, our blood and bodily fluids, the public at large, and of course, our emotions.

healing the womb space

Our womb space is an energetic as well as physical centre of our body, containing our pelvic & reproductive organs. The origin of the word pelvis in various languages stems back to ‘basin’, ‘bowl’ or ‘vessel’.  The womb space is an energetic bowl or container, and like these vessels, it holds the water of our emotions. It holds imprints of our emotional and relational history- what I like to call ‘womb prints’. These can originate from our childhood, our past traumas, toxic relationships, social oppression and from the generations before us.
