Shifting tides, shifting seasons, shifting #moon, shifting ME. I'm traveling back to NM from a two week trip to California. I went to assist @rachaelmaddox's Sex After Trauma retreat. But now, integrating these weeks in the car ride back home, I'm feeling into powerful shifts happening within me, perhaps the true impetus for leaving my nest. I've been listening to Witch: Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic. by Lisa Lister. This book speaks to my soul. Each word fills me up, offering goosebumps of resonance and truth speaking deep into my bones. Everything I know I am. Everything I am here to reclaim. At Rachael's retreat I was gifted the name Fiercely Expressive Witch by people who didn't necessarily know me, but who deeply saw me. I was surprised by the fear this label brought up. What will people think? How will they perceive me? Will they be afraid? But within this recognition of Self from others, I have felt a deep pull from within to truly claim my space as a witch in this world. Not just any witch... but an embodied witch. A sexuality witch. One who casts spells with her embodied, intuitive being. One who uses her sexuality to empower the world, to heal the land, to commune with spirits, to transform darkness into light. One who uses her energy to manipulate energies around her. One who uses her own power to remain rooted in the face of conflict or adversary. One who doesn't weaken herself just to make others happy. One who is not concerned by others simply not liking her or feeling threatened by her presence. Lisa writes, being a witch is about being a woman who can recognize, navigate, claim, trust and use her Goddess-given powers of creativity and #manifestation, her vision, her #intuition and foresight, her rhythms and cyclic nature and her ability to experience FULLY the dark to serve the light. And she does it to heal not only herself, but her family, her community and ultimately, the world.” This is my power. Here I am. #witchesofinstagram

I did a thing to my hair and it feels SO GOOD. This week has been a wild ride of transformation. On Tuesday I had a 4-hour #Shibari session. I went in with the intention to surrender. I didn't quite get the intention. But what I DID receive was a massive learning of how my body resists pleasure due to the intense shame I hold inside. The regulation I put on myself of when and how I can experience pleasure. The struggle I have to get out of my head. Then yesterday I had an incredible inner psyche journey where I reclaimed the 15-yr-old in me who felt like she lost everything when she had sex. She lost her virginity. Friends. Religion. Self-worth. Everything. Mary Magdalene came into the space and explained that no, she hadn't actually lost anything. In fact, she gained so much. A knowing of where and how she could utilize her power, especially her sexual power. How she could break away from a faith that kept her tethered to something lacking alignment with her soul. How she could embody her truth in the world. Unfortunately that journey didn't come with a guide or initiator, which Mary Magdalene apologized for. It's been a painful journey these 15 years since that point in my life when I created a belief that pleasure and desire led to me loosing everything. Essentially, to death. But now is the reclamation. Today I walked past a hair salon and knew I needed change. And here it is. Here is me reclaiming who I am. Here is me reclaiming my divine sacred witchy pleasure-filled and orgasmic path. Here is me reclaiming my initiation into Mary Magdalene and the sex priestesses of Isis. Here is me reclaiming my wisdom, truth and innate knowing that has existed in me for as long as I can remember. Here is me reclaiming my beauty, sexy, DESIRE and PLEASURE! Here is me reclaiming my capacity to be a sub. To surrender. To allow ecstasy into my entire body. Here is me reclaiming my right to manifest my destiny. To take up space. To be HOLY in my work. #sexmagic #marymagdalene
Taking a break. I have a tendency to be on the GO mode. To DO, DO, DO. I just finished up co-facilitating for @rachaelmaddox's Sex After Trauma retreat. It was a beautiful experience -- one full of magic and transformation and deep healing. But what I saw through it was how much my body cries out when I need my own rest. How much it makes it apparent when I haven't been giving myself the appropriate medicine. The jade egg practice + other sensuality practices have helped me tune into my body's barometer in a POWERFUL way. I used to be able to override my heart's and body's desires through sheer will-power. Thankfully, that capacity no longer exists. It's like I've gotten so in touch with my body/heart that they make it wildly apparent when I'm not treating them with the love or respect they deserve. People think the jade egg + working on our sexuality means just that... healing our trauma, re-finding desire, having epic orgasms, etc. But the reality is that it does SO MUCH MORE! All the way down to signaling to our body when it's time to rest. To integrate. To bask in glory of self-care, deep appreciation and love for all our glorious body's do for us. I never knew my pussy was the access point to my ENTIRE body, but it turns out she was. If you want to take a break, tune into your body and find some deep healing magic, there's still 2 more days to join Reclaiming Your Sacred, Sexual Power, a 6-week jade egg intensive that offers you multiple practices for grounding into yourself and your sexual power. Let me know if you want to sign-up for a 15 minute chat about this powerful experience. (I extended the deadline because I myself needed some deep integrative rest — the medicine of journey work, tarot cards, journaling and sexual play. It works wonders to move toward your heart’s needs and desires. Join us, if this had egg intensive is calling your heart in.) . . . . #tarot #takeabreak #spirituality #sexcoach
When it comes to our sexuality, something none of us are taught is that our body is an ecosystem. The whole thing works together. There isn't such a thing as compartmentalizing different aspects of ourselves... though so many of us do, because that's how we cope with life, ailments and experiences. But the truth is that if one thing is off in the body, everything is effected. When we begin doing work with our sexuality, for example when we pick up the jade egg practice (*for more info, link in profile*), we actually begin improving our entire ecosystem. Which means not just improving the health of our sexuality and connecting it to our sacred, sexual power, but also literally healing our body from the inside out. We start seeing shifts not only in our sensations and feelings and experiences around sex and relating to others, but we start recognizing our emotions more, connecting to our physical body when we're experiencing tension or difficult situations, recognizing our psychological needs and being able to resolve the traumas and triggers that come up more thoroughly on our own. We learn to self-regulate. And we learn to tap into deep resources of wisdom from within. And to top it all off, we begin cultivating a deeply spiritual relationship to the Divine, to our sexuality and to the amazing capacity of our bodies to feel, experience and move in this world. Gratitude increases. Self-love grows. Personal empowerment expands. Utilizing the jade egg as a modality for tapping into your sexual power, you basically begin up-leveling on every level. My passion is for women all over the world to feel free from their trauma, numbness, disconnection or lack of desire. To understand boundaries and safety within their body. To speak their truth. To know their SELF. There's only TWO MORE DAYS to sign-up for the April Jade Egg Intensive... *link in profile* (Photo by @feelspeaklisten) . . . . #femmepower #femalepower #tantra #jadeegg
One of the women in my last jade egg intensive made this incredible yoni out of earth elements. At the beginning of every practice and gathering in the 6-week intensive I take time to speak into an invocation to set our time together; to empower it as time not just for our sexual healing, but for planetary sexual healing. An incredibly important aspect of this planetary healing is mother earth--a lover who I am deeply devoted to, perhaps my most important relationship, and yet a relationship where I often fail in my love. I asked the other day if people wanted me to write about eco-sexuality, and I heard a resounding yes. To me, ecosexuality means having and engaging in a sensual and sexual relationship with earth. Some in the ecosexuality camp say we shouldn't call the earth mother as it gives permission to stomp all over her, expecting her to be there for us regardless, taking our abuses and loving us through them. I understand this perspective and simultaneously disagree because, just like a baby is 100% dependent on her mother, so too are humans 100% dependent on the earth. But instead of recognizing that we must take care of her as we would a lover or a mother, we instead begin abusing her, turning out back, ignoring that this relationship is mutual---we need to give back to her as she gives to us. Seeing her as consensual lover--one we embrace with care and affection, one we want to work out our wrongs with, one we appreciate and adore every aspect of--brings us into greater union, penetration, and surrender.... greater relationship with our earth. To me, the earth has every answer. She holds all the wisdom I could ever want--both internally within, plus all the universe's greatest secrets. She is an oracle of Truth. A Sexual lover. A pleasurable beacon of light. A self-sustaining organism that doesn't need us, but who loves us regardless.

Happy equinox, lovers. Up on the mountain I’ve felt spring in the earth and air for the past two weeks. Birds are singing brighter songs (mating songs), collecting twigs and materials for their nests. The grasses are shining a brighter green after the yellow of winter. Even the sunsets shine a particular light that only exists as a springtime glow. The Taoists believe our sexuality moves like the earth’s seasons, and from my own experience, I agree. Spring is a time of rebirth and regeneration. Of waking up. Coming alive. Opening up. Delight. Warmth. Coming out of the cave, the cocoon. Awakening energy. Spring is a time of intention setting. Planting the seeds. Or more like waiting for the seeds to sprout. Spring is a time of desire. Looking into your wildest dreams. Allowing full expression of yourself to shine. Spring is a reminder that we are ALIVE. That we are worthy of rebirth. That we are POWERFUL. That we manifest our reality. That we possess magic in our bones. . . . Sign-up for my webinar tomorrow. Link in profile. I’m going more into the seasons of sexuality + offering a powerful practice for women and humans with vaginas to harness your sexual energy for creative purposes—to feel the magic waking up in you. . . . . 🌼 Picture + photo words by @che.che.luna — follow for more badassary, sensuality, queer talk + magic 🌸 . . . #springequinox #taoism #yonieggs #sexualhealing #pussypower
Wild Womyn Womb Wisdom is one of the module’s in my jade egg intensive. One of the women from my last intensive said I was the “strongest” this week, which I took to mean that I held the fullest and deepest container. And I would agree. WILD is a state I feel like I was put on the planet to reclaim within womyn. I am here to let the wild out of the cage. Why is this important? Because WILD is one of the most repressed states in women. It’s also one of the most abused. WILD is exploited. You see it in pornography, on stages, in movies and magazines. WILD is a state used for others (typically men) to capitalize on. WILD is also feared. Little girls aren’t encouraged in their WILD. Women are often insulted for their WILD. Bitch. Slut. Out of control. Crazy. WILD is the way of the witches. Those burned on the stake. The druids. Those pushed out of existence. The earthmama’s. Those ridiculed and judged. The medicine women. Those kept from practicing the wisdom ways. WILD was stamped out by patriarchy. By The Church. By religion as a whole. Why? Because WILD is a threat. WILD evokes “rebellion.” Independence. Free-thought and uninhabited actions. WILD is a free woman. And I firmly believe that most of the issues women deal with today—low self-confidence, lack of worthiness, depression, restlessness, self-esteem issues—comes directly from the repression of WILD. Where does WILD reside? In a woman’s womb (and if you don’t have one you can still access the energy of this sacred source). In her power center. It’s a gateway to all things sacred. All things sexy. All things intuitive and natural and based in instinct. You, Mama, have permission to be WILD. You can reclaim your WILD. You can live from your WILD. And I am here to help you surrender fully to that gateway within your being. ***Link for the jade egg intensive in my profile.*** . . .
