Her Invitation

Just a week ago a friend indicated that I was keeping myself a bit in the background with my work through Sacred Circle Retreats. Well, she more than indicated – she flat out said so. I could feel she was right, however replied that I’m not feeling called to lead any particular groups or bring something through that space as a guide myself. And I meant it.

Within about three days time, that all came to a screeching HALT! Very little of what felt like actual effort occurred, although some very powerful, Sacred-Feminine-infused conversations transpired and Viola! – I’m now preparing to lead my first ever ‘event.’ My mind, that old recording we all have, wants to keep butting in: ‘Ahem, shouldn’t you be nervous? Do you really think you have something to say about this? Are you even going to be able to keep your thoughts and your self together? You’re terrified of your own voice. Seriously?!’ Nothing happens. No freak out, no physical response from my body to include heart palpitations, sweating in my armpits – NOTHING. She cannot and does not validate that old story. Because it’s no longer true.

What IS true is that I’m very excited about this. As soon as I said yes to Her invitation to step out, to speak up, to let my heart’s whispers take the lead, there was a very clear guiding path laid out before me. I could see and feel Her so clearly, illuminating from the center of my soul.

As part of the Awakening Woman series that has been so much of my vision for several years now, I’ll be joining this gorgeous group of five women (now six) and the stories and gifts they have to share. Not only will my senses be stirred through each one of them, but I will bring that inner stirring to those who are present and taking part. The focus for my session is (uhuh, you guessed it) sensuality. And the deeper I delve into this truth through my own body’s wisdom and ancient knowing, the more I discover this is NOT about sex. For too long, sensuality has become synonymous with ‘dirty’ sexuality. I was shocked and disgusted to find these definitions of sensual on Dictionary.com:



1. pertaining to, inclined to, or preoccupied with the gratification of the senses or appetites; carnal;fleshly.
2. lacking in moral restraints; lewd or unchaste.
3. arousing or exciting the senses or appetites.
4. worldly; materialistic; irreligious.

The most accurate description here is #3, and even that does the true essence of sensual very little justice. It’s time for us to speak up in favor of what our hearts, our souls, our bodies know to be true. Sensuality is not a dirty word. There is a fire and a beauty intermingling in my being around this conversation, and I’m very much looking forward to radiating on Her behalf in my upcoming session: Invoking HER Sensuality.

All are welcome to join, if you feel so called. I’m elated to be offering this series and my own personal contribution. Our world needs to remember, we need to dissolve the programming we feel from the patriarchal energies–both within and without. It’s our time, Beloveds. It’s our time….

    1. That truth becomes more and more real to me everyday, Barbara – how we are creating in our own UNIQUE way. The more we can look inward and truly SEE ourselves, the more radically our lives change. It’s amazing.

      Thank you for sharing here….xo

  1. Wonderful. I found my way back here through our dear friend, Joss. I also am stepping out a bit more..starting to write a book as I continue on this path of being who I am. You are inspiring gor sure. I still remember the feeling in the words you left on my blog a while back. Much love and blessings to you as you continue. I am beinga bit quiet right now as I wwork on this project but am excited to join with others too. ♡Laurie

    1. Hello to you, my luv. Thank you for circling back. We all need that blessed time to be ‘quiet,’ and to give space for our inner voice to whisper, to speak and sometimes to even scream out to us. I’m looking forward to hearing more about your project….xo

      1. Hi! I have been continuing to look at who I am and to heal generational pain in my family – working with my mom and my little daughter..through art…and exploring how to share a new way of recovery..that is gentle and pleasant and focused on wholeness. I also like hearing about what you are doing. Much is happening in this way. It gives me much hope to see how people are awakening and being who they are. 🙂
        Much love to you – Great to circle around 🙂

  2. I am so excited about this Jackie! You have so much to offer us, especially when it comes to sensuality. Not only am I honoured to be a part of this series, I am beyond thrilled to have you stepping out of the sound booth and joining as a guide!

    1. Oh gosh – you know, Joss, I am SO EXCITED about this too! And I never would have imagined myself to be so. We are a powerhouse of energies descending upon this planet and into women’s hearts. It sends chills from my head and down into my most intimate – well you know – places. For too long we have mistaken, mislabeled Sacred Feminine energy as something that is only ‘pure, nice, acceptable.’ NO MORE. SHE is raw, gritty, sexy and alive with pulsing, throbbing energy. We know it because we FEEL HER. No more pretending we don’t. It’s time to come out of the secret sensual closet and breathe heavily right out into the open!

      I can’t imagine a more amazing group of women than these who are calling home our Awakening Woman series. AMAZING. So much awaits us even while so much is awakening WITHIN us….Wow!!

    I am beyond excited that my beloved Jackie is now a contributor to this wonderful series that I am a part of. We have made this very affordable and would love to have you join in with us. As Jackie says so beautifully: “All are welcome to join, if you feel so called. I’m elated to be offering this series and my own personal contribution. Our world needs to remember, we need to dissolve the programming we feel from the patriarchal energies–both within and without. It’s our time, Beloveds. It’s our time….”

I always love to hear your thoughts....xx
