In the last few years, my social life in Los Angeles has blossomed and I’ve made some of the deepest, richest female friendships of my life.
Part of our connection, instead of going to bars or clubs, is getting together and doing wild spiritual practices in nature.
Recently, we’ve been looking at how our own personal spiritual practices and our collective feels pretty witchy.
Honestly, we’ll be out in nature doing breathwork, jade egg, and working with energy…and I can feel how this is so natural for women as a practice of organically connecting to our spiritual selves.
I asked my friends to come in and talk openly about what it means to live as a witch in 2019: Watch them below.
I used to have so many judgments around being a “witch,” but now I can proudly say: It’s a huge part of who I am.
‘Witch’ once meant “wise” or “the knower and seer” in European languages… Isn’t it interesting how we’ve all been subtly taught to fear the women who know and see with wisdom?
And that witches have green faces and eat children in the woods?
What if witches were the Goddess herself expressed in the female body?
What if she had a human face and birthed our wisdom traditions in the woods?
As we unwind the conditioned fears of our own power, it’s become clear to me: The Witches Are Back and we are no longer afraid.
Maybe the world won’t be saved by Western Women.
Maybe it will be saved by witches from all over the world birthing a new world order of spiritual magic, celebration, and connection to the natural world.
Let me know in the comments below: Do you identify as a witch? And how did this video make you feel?
