I made this website to share my life in priesthood and the gifts the Goddess brings me. Be it music or enlightment of any kind. She told me She needed me to share my thoughts and my music because those are now not my own, but rather my service to Her, to the world: I believe in change, but I believe we first need to change individually, in a deep personal level, to change our mentality, to awaken, be aware of ourselves and the world around us, THEN and only then will we change the world… And that, my friends, will take a very long time. So my job here is to help by doing my part: learn about myself and Her, and help other to learn more about themselves, about the Goddess and about the sacredness of every single thing that exists, because all those things are Her. All of it.
My inspiration came from my very first pagan contact: Pocahontas and Grandmother willow. I was fascinated by the movie but most important, even as a child I knew, what they believed was what I believed already, just couldn’t name it yet. As the songs says:
You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends
And so on, but most importantly, as I grew up and found the Goddess and learned about the trees and their meanings, their lessons, I realized what great teachings and incredibly hard lesson Grandmother Willow, above all other character, still has to teach us.
To listen with our hearts.
