Respecting the elements: Water

Carrie JordanEarth Wisdom0 Comments

This leaf gathering drops reminded me just how sacred water is. It’s easy to take it for granted because it flows so easily through our faucets. So much water is wasted in our society… Building a relationship with the four elements invites a lot of gratitude. I often thank the water while I’m showering. When I fill my water bottle at … Read More

Halloween Ritual

Carrie JordanEarth Wisdom0 Comments

Halloween, or Samhain as we call it for cross-quarter holidays, is a sacred day where we honor our ancestors. We honor their wisdom, we honor our oldest ancestors, the elements (air, fire, water, earth) because we are made of them. We are made of the DNA of our ancestors and they have passed their traumas, their lessons, and their stories … Read More

Medicine keepers of the city

Carrie JordanEarth Wisdom0 Comments

I was getting off the bus and getting my mail, pondering the medicine keepers of the city. It can be a challenge to be a medicine keeper in the city. We belong in the wilderness. We want to live in the backcountry, maybe in a cabin deep in the woods or the mountains with a fire burning and a slower … Read More

Carrie JordanEarth Wisdom, Feminine Leadership0 Comments

What did you dream you could be as a kid? An artist? An archaeologist? A secret agent? What did you dream of doing while you were in college, preparing to enter the “real world”?

I went to Austin, Texas a couple of weeks ago with my girl friends and loved it!

What is your love language?

love language

A love language is how you need love to be communicated to you. Have you ever been in a relationship with someone who doesn’t need to hear “I love you” or doesn’t say it back? Maybe that hurts because you really need to hear those words. That is the language of words of affirmation. If you need physical affection to … Read More

making decisions

Making decisions can elicit confusion in our inner world. Sometimes it’s easy—If you know it’s snowing or raining out in the morning when you wake up, you easily decide to wear your rubber boots. If you’re having a friend over for dinner and you know he’s a vegetarian with an egg allergy, you make a vegetarian dish sans eggs. That’s … Read More

embodying the goddess

Whenever we see a commercial or ad for cosmetics, Alex mutes it and narrates the commercial with an announcer voice. It usually goes something like this: “You are not good enough.
