Welcome to Earth Water Spirit!
Earth Water Spirit is about creating strong relationships with Goddess, Self, and nature. Taking time to create and nurture these sacred connections is one of the best healing gifts that I have been able to give to myself, and I share the information that has helped me in the hope that others may strengthen their connections to Spirit, nature, and Self, too.
There are so many wonderful ways to create these relationships with our Self, Spirit, and the world around us. Some of the techniques that my own spiritual practice revolves around include:
- Personal journaling and art journaling
- Working with the tarot and other oracles
- Observing the Wheel of the Year
- Spending time outdoors
- Nature journaling
- Creating art
- Working with dreams
- Praying, especially with Goddess/pagan rosaries and prayer beads
- Working with crystals
My spiritual practice is earth-centered, and I work with the Divine as Goddess in her many guises. My spiritual journey has taken me in many different directions from Christianity to Buddhism, but when I discovered earth-centered spirituality, I finally found the path that nourished my mind, heart, and spirit. I have been practicing an earth-centered path since 2004, first through Wicca, and eventually with a focus on Women’s and Goddess spirituality.
I’m a big believer in taking time out for rest and self-care, because my body and mind have a tendency to collapse on me if I don’t. Sometimes that looks like a long walk, a cup of herbal tea, or soak in a bath with Epsom salts and a few healing crystals. Other times that looks likes potato chips (I’m especially partial to Boulder Canyon’s Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar), chocolate and a Netflix binge. Whatever works!
I have been obsessed with water (pools, bathtubs, rivers, lakes, oceans) and swimming since I was a toddler. “Splash” was my absolute favorite movie when I was a child, and I wanted to be a mermaid so badly it was almost painful. If I could have purchased a mermaid tail then like you can now, I think my career would have been settled! When I’m in need of emotional solace, I always head to the nearest body of water.
In my free time I volunteer at my local Humane Society, go on hikes, read (mysteries & fantasy, mostly), create art, knit, and sit on the deck watching the birds and squirrels at the feeders. I’m one of those birder-types who never goes for a walk without her binoculars!
I have a Taurus Sun, Leo Moon, and Libra Rising and recently took an astrology class to learn more about interpreting birth charts. Astrology is complex, but so fascinating!
I have a degree in biology, and over the years I have become a Reiki Master, a Certified Crystal Healer (CCH), and an Advanced Crystal Master (ACM). I love to read, to learn, and to share and teach on the subjects I am passionate about.
I live in southwestern Oregon where I am grateful for the many opportunities to spend time outdoors in incredibly beautiful places.
I am currently in the process of creating online and in-person courses on earth- and Goddess-centered spirituality, spiritual practice, and nature connection. Stay tuned!
