Hello, my sacred friend! This winter has felt so long and I've been so eager to pull the camper out of storage and travel someplace new. So, this weekend Chris and I are hitting the road. Our little camper is packed and ready to go . . . and I secretly think it is as...
Hello my sacred friend, I hope you enjoyed a wonderful view of last nights full moon. Chris and I were deep in the woods looking up through bare branches fascinated by how the moonlight felt like a flood light upon the path. It felt magical. I'm always curious about...
Eagles, eagles, and more eagles. Last week I spotted about 30 eagles in one day. They were hanging out along the river: fishing, perched in trees, flying high over head and just doing what eagles do on a sunny winter day. In the summer of 2007, I saw a bald eagle for...
Rooted Life Radio grew its roots through my first podcast, Priestess Pathway Podcast.
The Priestess Pathway Podcast ran for 91 amazing episodes with over 65,000 downloads. The final episode was in May of 2017. In August, 2017 I relaunched my podcast with the name Rooted Life Radio. It is my desire to create episodes that inspire both men and women to create an adventurous, vibrant, and joy-filled life.
I hope that you continue this journey with me!
p.s. Below is a backlog of some of my favorite episodes and interviews. Enjoy!
Season 5 of the Priestess Pathway Podcast
S5E2 - Giving ourselves permission to pause
This afternoon as I came downstairs ready to head out to the garden for a little work time Chris said to me ‘just wait a couple minutes before going outside, there is a sparrow on the stoop centering himself.’ I thought to myself, what do you mean centering himself? I took a peek out the window to see just that; a sparrow, on the stoop, with eyes closed, just sitting.
Apparently he had just flown into the window. I would imagine that’s pretty startling . . . and while I’m sure we’ve all seen (or heard of) birds not quite as lucky as this little guy, there he was centering himself. He knew exactly what he needed to do before taking flight again.
So often we find ourselves overwhelmed by the busyness of life and in the process we lose our center, we feel emotional, triggered, sensitive, edgy, frustrated, depleted, and so much more. We find ourselves doing and saying things that are out of character, regreting them later, and wondering what is happening.
Chris and I needed to wait about 15 minutes for this little guy to collect himself and it felt like such a sacred gift to witness. So imagine what life would be like if instead of pushing yourself beyond your capacity you gave yoursel permission to pause, to breathe, to listen, to collect yourself and open your heart to the potential for beauty and joy that surrounds you within every moment.
What seemed so perfect about this little bird on my stoop is that what he was doing, centering and pausing is the topic of this weeks episode of the Priestess Pathway podcast . . . and while I had created the episode, and even published it, I was dragging my feet on sending out the newsletter to share it. Funny . . . this little pause was exactly the time I needed to center myself, write this message, and publish it to my blog. Love it!
So I invite you to give yourself permission to pause in the busyness of this holiday weekend.

Season 4 of the Priestess Pathway Podcast
S4E4 - Crystals in the Moonlight
The full moon is a time when the light of the moon illuminates what has been hanging out in our shadow so that we can surrender or shed the shadow beliefs and patterns that are holding us back from expanding into our wholeness. For that reason, this is one of my favorite times to make such energetic shifts through ceremony and sacred practice.
S4E3 - I went to Shaman School because I wanted to be an Artist
Sometimes the path we take to get where we want to be is not always the obvious path and I’m sure you have also come to know (and experience) that intuitive guidance is not always logical.
S4E2 - How to Keep Crystal Collecting a Sacred Practice
S4E1 - Activate Your Crystal Connection + Shamanic Journey
I’ve been running a live webcast series entitled: Activate Your Crystal Connection and wanted to share with you part two where we explore how to receive messages from crystals and stones and take a shamanic journey into the crystal realms.
Listen in to discover how dropping into our heart centers and opening the channels of connection to the language of crystals and stones offers so many insights and so much wisdom.

Welcome to the Priestess Pathway® Podcast
The Priestess Pathway Podcast is a weekly series that offers a sacred path for women who desire an intimate relationship with their Divine Feminine Soul.
I believe that now is the time for us, as women to create that relationship. I believe it is time for us to open our hearts and breathe in the wholeness of life. To listen to the voice within. To stand in our power. Our truth. Our wisdom. Our knowing. Our vision. Our radiance. Our beauty. Our love. Our divinity.
I believe now is the time to stand in who we were born to be with courage, strength, and passion.
It is time to answer our inner call, to answer the inner whispers and nudges from spirit. It is time to trust them. Honor them. And Awaken to the powerful sacred women we are!
We do this by bringing the sacred into every facet of our lives and powerfully living our sacred path.
