Hey Team! I am designating Thursday to be Morrigan Thursdays, so I’ll banter and share a bit about my work in my Morrigan Priestess Training most Thursdays from now on.
As a starter in the course, we’ve been asked to get really clear on a couple of priestessy aspects. Namely:
What has drawn you to the path of a priestess?
Honestly I had no idea. I was always chasing a devotional way of being connected to the Goddess, even when I first got into witchcraft time at 13 years of age. I wanted to know about nature worship and the connection with the earth and the different goddesses – not just how to do a bunch of spells to get boys and good grades, but how to build up of real relationship with the Goddess, how to really feel the impact of the divine on it everyday life. It’s just something I have always wanted to be ever since I first heard the word, even if I didn’t understand how or even believe that I could do it.
I’m sure a lot of you peeps reading this relate to that.
I guess the hippy way to describe it would be “I had a calling to be a priestess,” but come on, how elitist and smarmy is that? Nah, it’s just something that’s been bugging me, nudging me, for the last five years especially. I’ve just been really interested and obsessional about all things priestessy, but completely unable to believe that it’s something I could actually do. Until the last year that is, when I realised it was my life, I was a grown ass woman and could do exactly as I pleased.
I want to be a priestess and because, and this is smarmy, I feel like to really be myself and connect with my authentic-ness and who I am really am in my soul, I need this connection, this link to the magic of the world, this dedication and surrender and acceptance of a Goddess bigger and wonderful and completely magical.
So how about you? What’s drawn you to the priestess path? I would love to hear your stories in the comments below!
Don’t Forget Y’all! Faeriedaughter is moving to a new home at www.priestesstraining.com – go there from Mabon 2013 to keep up with all the priestess training, interviews and witchy goodness!
Last year I bought a book by Stephanie Woodfield called the Celtic Lore and Spellcraft of the Dark Goddess: Invoking the Morrigan. I wrote a little review of it here and I loved it. Loved it loved it loved it. You should totally get a copy.
Recently Kelley Sheppard (one of my lovely priestess interviewees – read hers here) alerted me to the fact that Stephanie runs a website community for people who love the Morrigan and would like to learn more of her. I was really excited to join, and I was super excited to learn that Stephanie is running a priestess of the Morrigan class over the next year as a part of this site! Freaking awesome or what!
So I am excitedly taking this class and looking forward to learning about the different faces of the Morrigan throughout the next year. Woohoo!
Anyway I just wanted to let you guys do just in case any of you love the Morrigan too and would love to be a part of an online sisterhood dedicated to her, or are hearing the call to become a priestess of the Morrigan and wish to join Stephanie’s most excellent class. It’s called Morrigu’s Daughters, and you can apply for sisterhoodship here.
I’m loving this online community, and I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences of the Priestess Class with you all!
