Inanna sumerian goddess

Above: Inanna, Sumerian Goddess of Love & Warfare, descending into the underworld. Originally published at Carolyn Elliot presents: WITCH. The way of the Priestess is intrinsically linked to the ancient feminine mysteries: we hear regularly about the cycles of the moon, the blood rites and the tantric principles of female/male polarities. Yet within these sacred mysteries, the most overlooked practice, and the one that gets me going the most, is womb magic. This magic is inherent in all women,...

The Earth speaks to us in a myriad of different ways. Our ancestors believed in an ensouled world where every bird cry and light flicker was a message from the inner soul of the world. We never had to feel alone, because everything around us was alive, brimming with consciousness and directing us through its benevolent embrace. I used to believe in this ensouled world myself when I was a child. Yet somehow it slipped through...

Self-love: it has never been my forte. Maybe power, creativity, intuition, world domination…but not ‘self-love’. Self-love always sounded too fluffy to me. Yet here I am, leading a self-love retreat in two days. How did this happen? We’ve all heard that it’s really all about love…that love is the matrix, love is all there is, love is ‘fill in the blank’. But what does it really even mean? I had caught a glimpse of the rapture of...

Orgasm. Not as in Climax, but as in the life force that runs through everything. It is like a secret fire within us. And once the fire is ignited, it has the power to wake everything up: our intuition, our creativity, even our genius. All orgasmic practice, in essence, is a process of alchemy. Wherein our orgasm -- our kundalini -- is the heat that transforms; while our body is the container that holds that transformation. The...

Being a Medicine Woman today is a very natural thing that requires no frills or fuss. We are all clear sentient beings, meaning we all have the superpower to feel our emotions in our bodies, and clear sight to know the truth. Yet arriving at this simple knowing takes building muscle. For me, the journey back to myself felt interminable. I spent most of my adult life hiding, disconnected from my instinct and my inner knowing...

I have a treacherous relationship with Amma, the notorious hugging saint that has graced over 33 million people with her loving embrace. When I finally resolved to see her, I fooled myself into thinking, based on the cute cotton replica dolls of her, the friendly glittering Ganesh’s and the flowers sprawled all over the stage, that it would all be fluffy love. Alas, Amma was about to reveal to me what she does best: her world-class capability...

I love Amma, the incredible self-realised being otherwise known as the ‘hugging saint’. She has brought joy and healing to 33 million people by extending her warm loving arms around them in an infinite embrace that melts even the most hardened souls. She was my compass when I moved to her ashram in India to stay with her one sweltering Spring and still is my go to place for a good dose of unconditional love....

There is an Italian saying, “La Donna e’ amore.” Woman is love. Indeed she is. As the mother, the daughter, the sister and the lover, we are the force of nature that is capable of instilling love into the hearts of men. It is an important job for us women, and one that can be fraught with uncertainty. What is required of us above all else is that we know ourselves, and that we explore the depths of...

I’ve always felt that everything around me lives in a process of alchemy. Every part of nature, every single living cell in my body, every emotion that I feel. There is no place where Alchemy is not. In the hot flushing of my cheeks, in the crackling of a fire raging, in autumn leaves softly falling to the ground, and in a bubbling hot spring. All of life is in constant synergy and motion with itself...
