What is a High Priestess? A woman who knows her worth, honors her intuitive heart and walks the journey with wisdom, integrity and love. She is a woman who leads, is the keeper of ritual, and understands the seen and unseen. In the Tarot, the High Priestess is the guardian of the unconscious. She sits in front of the thin veil of unawareness which is all that separates us from our inner landscape. If you’re interested in learning more about this Tarot card, I found this site to be the most helpful.
I used to shy away from labels like this…they always seemed so ‘woo woo’ or some how were too pretentious. Over the last few weeks and if I’m fully honest over the last few years labels like High Priestess, Goddess, and Queen seemed too royal, regal, and self-important yet I am drawn to them. They often come up in my visions and meditations. I am often told by my guides and angels that I am a Queen, a Priestess, a Goddess and have always been throughout my soul’s journey in past lives and in this life!
It takes a leap of faith, a trust and a confidence to own these labels as it requires one to step up the level of integrity, responsibility and willingness in which they live their lives. Personally, it has scared me to fully own the energy of these labels and more importantly the way of ‘being’ in the world. For a Queen is in service to
her people. A High Priestess is charged with holding a sacred space and a place of wisdom to instruct the fellow Priestesses within the Temple. And a Goddess holds a Holy energy where her courage, passion and wisdom is being asked to be shared in all her actions. It longer scares me. My heart and soul have accepted the truth and I am now in full willingness to be all that is being asked of me and all that I AM.
Today I was in Faerie Beads, a sweet store in La Grande, Oregon. Hanna Rose, the owners daughter is a gem. She truly is a creator of beauty and a lover of life. She created this beautiful head piece which also can be a necklace or bracelet but as a head piece it captured my heart, ignited my inner High Priestess and aligned with my soul. I plan to wear it as I write, do ritual, offer blessings and any sacred work as it shifts my energy to a greater knowing and reminds me of the Divine Lineage I come from which is the Light. I hold the triple Goddess energy as maiden, mother and crone. Combining the sweet innocence with the protective nurturer and the wise cosmic Being enables me to hold sacred space for myself and others to remember, heal, die and be rebirthed into fullness.
