What is the Priestess Path?

Updated: Mar 23, 2019

If you're reading this, you feel the call of the priestess, but may have some questions about what this path even entails.

Becoming a priestess and starting the priestess path was the greatest gift I could have given myself. It opened my eyes to belief systems that I shifted for the better, allowed me to become more aligned with the world around me, and I became intrinsically and extrinsically connected to all that I yearned for in the sacred. It took a lot of courage to step onto the path and to realize that this was a lifelong work of deep inner transformation, of evolving love for self, and of helping my community in ways I had only dreamed of.

A Priestess is an initiate of the divine goddess. As she seeks inner healing, she raises her vibration and deepens her connection with both herself and the divine feminine. She initiates a process of transformation, alchemically awakening her connection to source.

A Priestess is a conduit to the divine, a hollow bone and vessel of eternity. She is able to heal, both herself and others. She is a mystic with a sacred connection to spirit.

Priestesses of the Past

Priestesses have been around since nearly the beginning and held authority, wisdom, insight, and connection the the highest realms. In today's ever evolving world, it is time for us to claim that power back and bring the priestesses into modern times. We must also honor the lineage and those who came before us.

In ancient Rome, the Vestal Virgins were priestesses of Vesta-- guardians of hearth and home. Only six were chosen to maintain the flame and thus, the security of Rome.

In ancient Greece, the priestesses known as. the Oracle of Delphi (or Pythia of Delphia-- Senior Priestesses/High Priestesses) held the authority. Many would come seeking their wisdom, especially kings and those in business to find out how their future would unfold.

In Egypt, there was one Priestess that was chosen as God's wife who would become just as powerful as the king himself (look up Priestess Hui).

Some believe that the ancient site of Avalon is now where present day Glastonbury stands. There are and were devoted Priestesses to her lands.
