    **Please note that this is the last event I am personally hosting at the Moon Lodge before I have my baby! If you’ve been wanting to come experience the magic we create when we’re together in this sacred space, this is the time!  

    Women have been gathering under the Full Moon since the beginning of time to celebrate, practice magic, and connect with the divine energy that flows through the stars, the trees, and our blood.

    Something truly unexplainable happens when women gather in a sacred space. You’ll have to come and experience the magic for yourself.

    Whether you’re a devout Catholic or a seasoned Witch… a maiden, mother, or crone… a lawyer or an artist or a teacher… you are welcome, just as you are. All I ask is that you come with an open mind and a pillow to sit on.

    I can’t wait to be with you.

    Happy Spring Equinox! Ritual inside

    Happy Spring!

    Today is the Spring or Vernal Equinox when the days and nights are (pretty much) of equal length and the official first day of Spring! In Celtic tradition, Spring Equinox is called Ostara, and it is the celebration of new life, fertility, love, and planting new seeds of ideas, dreams, and desires (as well as actual seeds since this is the beginning of the planting season). They spoke about the Sun God coming back to lie down on the Mother Earth and make love to create new life. Hot, right!?

    Today is a very powerful day to get in touch with your desires and set intentions. I’m going to walk you through how to do it. 

    Celebrating these seasonal holidays deeply connects me to Earth, which helps me to embrace, celebrate, and feel my wild, feminine soul. I’ve also experienced firsthand how powerful it is to set intentions (ask for something I want) during times when the Earth’s energy and magic can support those intentions being brought into reality. To translate: when the Earth is sprouting new life, it supports me sprouting my dreams and ideas into life. 

    What’s cool is that many of the secular traditions of Easter (which is comes from the word Ostara) are the exact same traditions people have been practicing in Earth-based religions way before Christianity. Dyeing eggs, covering tables with daffodils, and bringing in other symbols of fertility (like bunnies) were all adopted by Christians when they were promoting the religion. So you’re already doing a lot of stuff that connects you to the Earth – it’s just nice to really know why you’re doing it and put some intention behind it.

    I believe that holidays take on a whole new meaning when we wrap them in ritual, which to me is using symbols and infusing them with personal intentions.

    In my new Moonly membership program, Whole Woman, our community receives steps to do a new ritual every Moon cycle to support them in a certain area of their lives. Wrapping personal growth with ritual and other feminine practices has had the biggest impact on my life and my clients’ lives over the past few years. Today, I want to share one of those rituals with you!

    And if you feel called to check out Whole Woman, you can read all about this unique program and see if it’s a fit for you here: WholeWoman.Me

    Simple Spring Equinox Ritual:

    Here is a ritual for you to do today on your own, with friends, or with your family. I do this with my kids every year!

    1. Buy some seeds at the grocery store or your local gardening store, and a pot and soil if you wish to plant them inside instead of in the ground.  
    2. Prepare a place to plant them, whether it’s in your yard or a pot with soil in your home.
    3. Gather the seeds and fill a watering can with water.
    4. Gather around your planting place with everyone who is doing the ritual.
    5. Bless the soil by holding your hands over it and saying a simple prayer like, “I am grateful for the fertile ground where my dreams with grow. May my home, my health, and my relationships be full of love and safety so the seeds of my dreams may grow.”
    6. Pass out the seeds and hold the seeds in your hands.
    7. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths and bring your attention to your heart.
    8. Ask your heart her greatest desire.
    9. When each person is ready, they can speak their dream, wish, or desire while holding the seed.
    10. Once everyone is done, take a minute to imagine that intention going from your heart, down your arms, and into the seed through your hands.
    11. Plant the seeds in the soil.
    12. Say a simple prayer like, “I plant these seeds of dreams in this fertile ground. I trust in the genius of my dreams to grow in their own time.”
    13. Then everyone waters the seeds a little bit with the watering can and says a simple prayer like, “Help me to know when I need to nourish and nurture my dream to help it grow and when I need to allow the magic of time and nature to support it.”
    14. Hold hands with the people you’re with and close with, “And so it is!” (general spiritual) or “A-Ho!” (Native American) or “So mote it be!” (Witch).  

    That’s it!!

    I did this ritual last year and asked to own the retreat center I was looking at in Massachusetts.  A month later we had an accepted offer. Magic!

    Please let me know in the comments on the blog or on Instagram how this goes for you. I would also love to see pictures so tag me on Instagram!

    If you’re desiring more ways to feel connected to your unique, creative, feminine soul and the magic of the world around you in a simple, approachable way, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read about Whole Woman. We already have hundreds of women connecting and learning together in the membership, and I know everyone would love to have another like-minded woman like yourself in the group.  Enrollment is open until 11:59Pm ET on Thursday, March 22nd.

    Happy Ostara, my dear! Sending you blessings for all of your dreams blooming into form.

    Love, 
    Sarah

    Struggle with balancing motherhood, work and self-care? My radical approach may trigger you.

    This post might trigger you. But since I’m more dedicated to my truth than your comfort, I’m going for it.

    When I lived by the belief that “nothing was more important than my kids,” I really struggled.  Leaving them every morning to take my laptop to a cafe to hustle from 9-5 sent me into a spiral of guilt.  

    I’m such a terrible mother. They really need me at home. They are going to feel so abandoned. Are they going to go through life feeling unsafe?

    Then I’d spend my days doing all of the things a “good business woman” should do. So much adrenaline, anxiety, and pressure pumped through my veins as I designed Facebook ad campaigns and marketing funnels that followed all the rules. 

    And when it was time to go home, I dreaded the evenings with my kids. I was so tired from work that I felt like the least qualified woman to be a parent.  

    After weeks of pushing, I’d finally force myself to get a massage and I’d feel so guilty that I was on the table doing something for me instead of wanting to spend time with my kids.

    So many “shoulds.”

    So much guilt.

    So much pushing.

    Does this happen to you?

    It wasn’t until I invested 6 figures in a huge program launch and didn’t make it back, not to mention I didn’t make the 6 months of living expenses my family was counting on, that I completely lost it.

    I wasn’t happy with my business and I wasn’t even making any money.

    I wasn’t happy with my kids and I never got to see them.

    I wasn’t taking care of myself.

    And Jonathan and I were constantly fighting.

    All of the sacrifices weren’t paying off. 

    But I just felt so caught in the spiral and had no idea how to get out.

    I started with crying. And crying and crying. 

    At the bottom of my despair was a message:

    What do you want?

    Such a simple question…and I had no idea how to answer it.

    I had been so caught up in the rules, thinking that if I followed them then I’d make a lot of money, have time for my kids, get the self-care I needed, and would feel rested and bubbly enough to be nice to my husband… but the rules kept me from tuning into what I wanted and what was going to work for ME.

    I had damaged the phone line to my soul and the silence I felt when I tried to tune in scared the shit out of me.

    I started to notice all the ways I was letting everyone else’s opinion dictate how I lived. I was like a sailboat with no rudder, just being tossed around and capsized with every gust.

    So I got help.  

    I became a Priestess in a Mystery School, did therapy with Jonathan, my son, and solo, and I enlisted Katina Mercadante, a spiritual innovator and strategist. I went to Tulum, Mexico, to reawaken my sensuality, I bathed naked on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean to meet my soul with Sera Beak. Became a Spirit Weaver, danced naked in the rain with a Brazilian shaman, made a deerskin drum in ceremony with Brook and Shola from The Golden Drum Community, learned sex magic from Achintya Devi of Goddess Rising. 

    I’ve worked with functional medicine doctors to reach a new level of health I’ve never experienced before and moved from San Francisco back to the land of my ancestors in order to carry out the next season of my work.

    And through it all, I realized that my only option is to do whatever I want.

    (This is the triggering part.)

    I stopped thinking about what my kids wanted.
    I stopped thinking about what Jonathan wanted.
    I stopped caring about what my clients and audience wanted.
    I stopped asking about what my friends and family thought I should do.

    All I cared about was what I wanted.

    But here’s the cool part…

    When I allowed myself to think about how I wanted to spend my days, how I wanted to feel with my kids, how I wanted to mother, the memories I wanted to have with them, what I needed from my marriage, how I wanted to express myself through my work, what my body and soul needed in self-care, travel, spirituality, friendship and fun… I realized that I wasn’t as much of a monster as I thought I was, and I didn’t need a bunch of rules to keep me in line.

    As I started to create a life around what I wanted, I saw so many amazing changes…

    1. My son, who had felt distant and unsettled since he was born, became calmer and more connected to me and started sleeping better.
    2. My business had the best profits I’ve ever experienced.
    3. My relationship with Jonathan was less explosive and more loving.
    4. My energy, sensuality, and glow returned.
    5. I felt a deep connection to my soul and the magic that exists around me.
    6. I manifested a pipe dream of owning a retreat center in Massachusetts.

    We’ve been taught that doing what we want will make everyone else worse off. This is a lie to keep women from accessing our power.  

    Think about it, if we’re running around exhausted and confused about why we’re so miserable, we’ll never challenge the status quo.  

    So I’m curious, what do you want?  If you could just start over, what would be your ideal?

    You can have your ideal… Maybe not today, maybe not even this year, but if you start the process of asking, you will wake up one day and have a life that blows your mind because it is in total alignment with your soul.

    If you get caught in the lie that having what you want is just for “the lucky ones,” then you’ve written your own sentence.

    If you want this to be possible for you or you’re craving a community of women who are standing up and saying, “WHAT I WANT MATTERS!” then I’d love for you to consider joining me in Whole Woman: an online sanctuary and monthly membership to get support in creating a life that is yours.

    You can learn all about the program, what’s included, and if it’s right for you here: Whole Woman Enrollment Page.

    I really hope we get the opportunity to sink into this new way of living, parenting, and loving together. Please reach out if you have any questions.

    Love, 
    Sarah
