Mother Daughter Soul Contracts : Part 1

By Lhamo | Apr 17, 2018 | 0 Comments

Every child is born with a soul contract with her mother. She has a gift or teaching to give her mother, soul to soul. Some soul gifts are easy for the mother to receive they could be opening to love, stepping into power, trusting her value, sharing her wisdom. Other contracts feel like pulling teeth, almost like our babe has exactly the right medicine, just by being herself, to push us to the edges of who we know ourselves to be. Her strong will pushes us to grow a backbone. Her clinginess pushes us to look at our own collapsed...

Mother Daughter Soul Contracts : Part 2

By Lhamo | Apr 16, 2018 | 1 Comment

Of all the hurts a daughter can suffer from her mother there are two that cut the deepest. The first is the betrayal of not being seen. Not being loved, appreciated or seen for our authenticity or uniqueness can be excruciating. It is a painful awakening for a daughter to realise that to be true to herself she has to leave her family. This fight between belonging and selfhood, autonomy and acceptance, stability and self-freedom can then become a dichotomy that a daughter lives with long after her vulnerable self left home. This pattern of stay and conform or leave...

Awakening your Key to Sacred Sisterhood

By Lhamo | Jan 29, 2018 | 0 Comments

Many years ago I was attending a Women’s Rite’s Retreat with the sublime Anna Davidovich and in a throwaway comment, she gifted me with one of the most profound teachings I have ever received.   Her simple sentence changed my life.   While the words she said are not exactly the words, I’m about to give you now, the simplicity and power of this sentence has the capacity to awaken one of the most profound blueprints of your soul. I kid you not.   But before I tell you what she said I have to let you know that the...

Three reasons why I charge for my women’s circles and why you can too.

By Lhamo | Jan 24, 2018 | 3 Comments

Before I start, I’d like to say it takes courage to hold a women’s circle. Any woman who is has heard her Spirit given call and is clear about her desire to be with women in circle and says “yes I am going to hold a women’s circle and learn and share and heal and grow” – is brave. Any woman has been to the depth of her soul wounds and not only survived but has healed and created a wisdom path in the process and then says “This is me. This is what I know, come learn with me.“...

The big test for spiritual people

By Lhamo | Sep 22, 2017 | 0 Comments

  It really is easy to appear spiritual on Facebook.    It’s even easier on Instagram.   A few beautiful photos, some great quotes, a strategic comment, a smattering of crystals, flowers or essential oils and voila! there’s your brand.   Don’t worry, I’m not judging. I’m doing it too.   The harder thing, if not the hardest thing to do, is to stay your spiritual self when you are around your family.   Especially, when your authentic voice happens to speak a language of beliefs, opinions or lifestyle choices that conflict or oppose your family values or culture. This...

How Ancestresscy was created

By Lhamo | Aug 24, 2017 | 0 Comments

GIFTED TO ME BY MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER IN A DREAM A WEEK BEFORE MY REDHAIRED DAUGHTER WAS BORN, I was heavily, very heavily, pregnant, and it was a balmy Sunday afternoon in late November 2006. I was hot and also more than ready to birth. So I did the best labor prep I could do – I laid down to nap. She was beautiful and so completely real. She walked into my bedroom dressed in her late 1800’s clothing and came over to where I was lying on my bed. She, was Ethel Nellie Johnson, the mother of my Grandmother....

Tyranny of shiny. Dropping the masks in your women’s circle

By Lhamo | Aug 21, 2017 | 0 Comments

The music is on. You’ve smudged the room and reverently (if not slightly excitedly) your women have settled themselves in the room. You breathe in, you open your eyes and catch their expectant gazes. “Welcome” you say with reverent tones. Feeling your body soften and voice deepen, you are about to launch into your mystical opening of sacred space then BANG! That one late woman has just tripped on the cat at the front step and her glass water bottle has shattered all over the porch. Now due to an ensuing litany of f-bombs (she is one of your tribe after all)...

She in the Centre. How do you call in the Sacred in your women’s circle?

By Lhamo | Aug 21, 2017 | 0 Comments

I’m about to admit something that isn’t exactly PC when it comes to women’s circles, I fully own that it has a little to do with my shadow gremlin of cynicism and a lot to do with experiencing a multitude of things called sacred women’s business. But before I make my grand confession, I want to know, how do you call the sacred into your women’s circles? Which tradition do you follow? Do you open your circle space with a Wiccan protocol? Or are you following your teacher’s way, if so, what is his or her lineage of wisdom? Is it...
