So Mote It Be

I work a lot with the breath. Connecting groups of people to the space available there and helping myself to remember what is available in every moment. The opportunity to receive through the inhale and the opportunity to give through the exhale. I see this relationship reflected in everything that I do nowadays. A constant flux of giving and receiving. I loved the way that this coat showed me something about letting go. I have maintained a stand at Redeux Vintage for the last few years as a way to stay in healthy relationship with the material object. I am constanlt acquiring things to photograph or create with and I have a very Venetion relationship to fashion, and well, life, and so this stand allows for me to flow in it without much loss. Every now and then a piece will come along that I want to hold onto, even though I know it is not for me. This coat was an incredible example of that relationship. It is the perfect coat. Soft, heavy velvet,  shiny, silver buttons,  a floral silk lining, and a movement that swings. It was so hard to deny that it didn't fit me perfectly. It was restricting my SHOULDers and the irony of " I SHOULD keep it anyway" was not lost on this symbolic Pisces. I realized quickly that the most magical thing this jacket was going to teach me was letting go of what is not made for me, the things that do not fit, the things that don't feel perfect. There are a lot of these things popping up for me, lately. Relationships with people, business, food, objects, you name it, all of the things that don't feel good anymore are leaving with my exhale and within their departure I am realizing how much more space is being made available for me to really receive what serves me; a deeper inhale. I really appreciate the magic of the material object as teacher and I am really looking forward to this coat finding it's rightful Witch. I am happy to be the catalyst for things finding their right place and witnessing the ways it puts me in mine. I am exactly where I belong, RIGHT HERE, breathing deep, in clothes that are fit for me.  

Wishing you all a very Happy Valentines Day. May it be filled with the things that feel really good for you and may everything else be BANISHED!!!!

So Mote it Be.

Mare Cromwell



Mare Cromwell is a Gaia Priestess, healer, author, and international speaker. Her newest book, The Great Mother Bible, is a testimony to her connection with Mother and a culmination of her deepest work. She is also the founder of the 1000 Goddess Gathering, which is approaching it's second year. I loved the opportunity I had to question her about the process of receiving this call to write and to gather and how she overcomes the urge to shrink when faced with visions so grand. She expressed that it comes with a deep trust and surrender to the Mother, or what is also known as Mother Earth.  It was such an honor to watch the ways in which she has truly surrendered in her presentation of the information she receives from this source and I felt the deep sense of support she experiences within it. Watching her offer her prayers, hold space, and channel was so inspiring to me and made me feel extremely safe to surrender to my own gifts. I would highly recommend checking out Mare's website for more information and keep your eyes peeled as she returns to York, Pa in March at Firefly Hollow to present  "Awakening Our Womb Wisdom"

Journey into the next dimension

We are now ending the second week of 2018 and I am feeling really excited about the way that it all feels. Thus far this winter has brought me so close to my earth. The pollution and fears that lurk the forests unseen but also the loving and nurturing love chord of the Mother. I am making a lot of bold moves this year, taking risks in my career, finding balance in my life, and organizing my money( for the first time ever) all as a means to offer myself to my community from a place of clarity. Moira is a big part of the transformation of relationship I am finding in myself. This place feels like a physical manifestation of my souls deepest yearnings. A place to bring together intention and celebration, magic, people, and art. All of the pieces fall together there like clock work and I can tell that what is being built is going to be strong and beautiful and transformational. We spent the New Year gathered with our nearest and dearest in an intimate event planned by Sky Society and produced by Lost Sugar Disco. The evening started out in a sort of timeless lounge scene vibe with Tuck Ryan Band. I created some Space to Breathe as we allowed ourselves to receive in meditation, Megan Woodland offered us her voice in celebration and it shifted into a hazy, poetic reverberation by Ehiorobo .  Sky Society and Joe Martin lead us into the very early morning of 2018 in a state of bliss as we created grooves in the floor boards and got low to the earth. All in all, it was the beginning of something undeniably beautiful, unifying,and intentional. I am so excited to be a part of this collective and can not wait to continue to expand my offerings to the city of Lancaster, here. It feels more clear than ever before.  It makes me think of the way it would feel when I was a kid and would take a really high jump without any fear. It is this beautiful mixture of excitement and anxiety but I know that the deeper I ground the higher I rise and holy shit am I ready!! Keep your eyes peeled because this party is just getting started and I really want you there!  I love you and Happy New Year! 

The Wild Hymns


It is such an incredible honor to have been a part of the creation of The Wild Hymn's first music video. I could not be happier to have this as my first offering of the New year. I am really opening myself to merge the healing arts with my photography and this video is such a beautiful token of what occurs when it happens. I am thankful for my community and all that we are capable of. 

Shanti! Shanti! Shanti!

Yesterday a wave of nostalgia came over me as I packed up a bunch of white doves from the props I had gathered at Redeux. My father's favorite Christmas ornament was an old dove he had carried with him and it was always revered as this sacred object in our family. We would laugh about finding the perfect spot for it on the tree and make a real fuss over his sentimentality. It was a really nice thing to remember as it had been lost in the attics of my mind, collecting dust with the rest of the holiday ornaments. Reflecting on this dove and my father's sentimentality offered me a moment of peace.  

There is a purity offered to us this time of year, as the light begins to return on the solstice and if by chance, we are blessed with a fresh snow..silent moments to reflect and connect with what really matters as we all find exactly what we need among a cold and barren earth. It felt really good to breath that in. It is so easy to get distracted, easy to forget that what we have before us is all we truly need. The gift of this season lies in these small moments of connection between human hearts. I am wishing that for you all and of course,


Holy Cow

On my journey to giving up dairy completely, once again, I decided to watch some videos yesterday morning about the dairy industry. Needless to say, it helped. I moved through my early afternoon with ease, transmuting some of the pain I saw through compassionate action. Joe and I packed up the car and headed East for a solstice gathering. On our way, while taking in the bare Pennsylvania landscapes, we were passing one of my favorite hill side cow farms. I laughed hysterically at one of the big mamas I saw, sprawled out on her side, utters loose and hanging, completely surrendered to the earth. Then it hit me, " WHAT IF SHE WAS DEAD?" Had this winter already become so twisted that I was now laughing at a dead cow? Quickly I grabbed my phone. GOOGLE: Do cows sleep on their sides?!?!? I found relief in the answers. Cows do sleep on their sides in the case that they have a partner to keep watch. My heart melted. What incredible medicine this holy cow had offered me. I reflected on the ways I relaxed in my sense of partnership to joe, in my friendships, and in myself when I found a sense of trust. I don't know too much about astrology, only what my sisters tell me and some things that I intuitively feel, but at the solstice I learned that as a collective we are all moving into the unknown. Into the darkness, the depths of winter. We are becoming more still, slower, deeper, allowing things to die away. I can see it in my life. I watch myself hold on and grip out of fear to some of the things I know don't serve me, or the things I can't imagine living without. A resistance to rest and surrender. A resistance to receive.  It seems natural as there are a lot of places I am not sure about but being nudged to move forward in. I am building strength and confidence in areas I have never been before. I am finding more ways to trust. Dana related this to fog. How, when we are driving through the fog we get to see only ten feet in front us. We move forward with what we have and we do it with the faith that we will see what we need to when we get there. I am seeing it in the way this cow mama showed me to close my eyes and rest. To let go and relax and to I have faith in the support I find in my connection to earth, the sacred body. In the watchful nature of my awareness and its soft and nurturing guidance.  And in the people of my community as they offer me the resources I need to be whole. 


I honor this sacred mother.

Her ability to feed,

to nourish,

to nurture,

and to die

for the whole. 

May we all come into right relationship with the ways we surrender and receive.

Miss Jess

There is a life force behind each of us. This energy propelling us toward




It whispers sweet nothings into our inner ear and sometimes we are listening and we follow and sometimes we are listening and we choose to ignore. And sometimes, the urge and the feeling to move towards that which is beckoning is so deep that it feels as though we might die if we do not get to know it, intimately. Within that intimacy, we open. Through opening we reveal the authentic nature of the energy that connects us all.

It is here that we truly give

our selves

our selves

as the other selves

the opportunity to love,

to entwine,

to rise. 

To feel empowered in what is rightfully ours. In our bodies, in our hearts, in our minds, and in what happens when we find a way to turn all of them on, simultaneously. This is where true purity lies. It is not in hiding, in staying safe, in keeping it all to yourself. It is in allowing yourself to be truly seen. It is in trusting this force to move you into the places you need to go, surrendering to the experience, and allowing your senses to lead you to the next doorway. Sometimes you will be without sight, listen. Sometimes you will be without understanding, feel. Go where it is leading you and you will find the way to open. 

Thank you for honoring me with this session, Jess.

You are the map and the destination. 

Thank you also to

Josephine Love


I have been working really hard on reorganizing my life and simplifying (Josephine has been an amazing role model for this.)  I am really sinking into what I value and letting go of the rest. One of those things being connection to the goddess. Is it obvious, yet? I feel like it is my work to continue to create space for us all to sink into the flow and surrender that is available there, within that quality of energy. One way I am working with feeling safe to do that is through these really, seemingly, masculine moves. I organize myself, I take action as soon as I think about it, I schedule in time to do the things I know my heart needs to do, I act with authority over myself and take charge to stay aligned with my dreams.  One of those dreams being the commitment I make to this blog. This blog was created as a way for me to encourage myself, my personal progress, to check in, to connect, and to have a platform to share. It is a place for me to witness my heart grow and heal and open.

My dream is to organize my time and my flow enough to show up three time a week here.  

As I move into what I truly value I am inspired by the connections I hold with the women in my life. The depths we reach and the love we share is something I hold very close to my heart. With that, I am now going to be presenting these women as a means to connect them to those who wish to know them, to encourage them to keep growing and showing, and to also honor the goddess that I see within the connection I have to them. These are my mirrors and I am so thankful to witness the beauty that each one of them have offered to my life. I am thinking this will be a Wednesday feature and I am looking forward to the way this encourages me to plan my shoots accordingly, to create space to be inspired, and to create a place to truly see the soul of a woman! With that being said...

This is Josephine.

I am pretty good at reaching out to people who attract me. In the age of technology the social butterfly in me has found ways to flutter as an advanced being in ways I never would have had the opportunity to before. I am grateful for technology and It was through the flight of my curiosity that Josephine and I first connected. I reached out to her to see if she was interested in working with me and I will never forget the way it felt when I saw her for the first time. She had a visible triple goddess moon tattooed on her and I knew in that moment there was a connection beyond my initial intrigue pulling us together.

We have been playing and co-creating for the last year and it has been such a joy to expand in heart and mind and friendship together. She has contributed to my personal growth through creative play, through humor and softness, and through encouragement to step out of who I think I am, to stay open,  and to not be afraid to recreate myself. She helps me to see the places where my true beauty lies, to find comfort in my sexuality, and to surrender to the luxurious folds of my belly. I have benefited greatly watching her grow a stunning new and improved set of wings over this last year. I see her freeing herself to fly in ways that only the sky holds limits for. She leaves in a couple days for a two month adventure with her cat, Elvira, and two beautiful children. This is one of the the many challenging steps she is taking in making space for the incredible goddess she always has been and is also still becoming through her strong decision making, risk taking, and deep heart healing. She dances through her fear, faces the unknown with grace, and takes ease in change.  I am so excited for all that is occurring for and around her, for the new ways in which she is supporting her life and her children. I am so excited to witness the creation that will rise from this place. I am so grateful to be a part of her journey, to benefit from the confidence she exudes, the style she embodies, and the ways she sways through the maiden, the mother, and the crone.

The Dreamthieves


As you look up into the sky
Heaven's above
The Starlight in your eyes.

Moving like a shadow
Disembodied and alone
Somewhere in the darkness
Beyond the dusk
Before the dawn.

Beneath the velvet
Cloak of night
Let go of your fear
And feel your spirit
Taking flight.

Lurking by the roadside
Hungry eyes and hearts of stone
Don't stray from the pathway
Until you see the light of home.

Moving like a shadow
Disembodied and alone
Somewhere in the darkness
Beyond the dusk
Before the dawn.

    Hell Hound

    She was a gypsy woman
    She was as cold as the day, yeah
    She said I'd got it coming
    And then she took me away, yeah

    She took me through the shadows of her sunken dream
    I thought it's over for me, she wasn't all she seemed

    She took my hand and then she started to speak
    She told me she'd had the call
    With eyes of fire that were burning my soul
    She looked into her crystal ball
    She read my fortune then she read my mind
    She didn't like my thoughts at all

    Taurus Moon

    In honor of this sensual full moon that is upon us, I wanted to share a few photos from a recent boudoir collaboration I did with Josephine Love and Britta Lipka. These images were used as a gift for Britta's then, husband to be, which she gave to him before the wedding. This day was so beautiful as we spent it preparing looks, playing in Josephine's closet, and allowing ourselves to reflect on the flow, expression, and empowerment of the divine feminine. What it means to embody the goddess. 

    I find myself consistently working within the sensual and sexual nature of my being. I am finding ways to truly understand my sexuality in a society that distorts it with guilt, shame, and objectification. I am always looking for my own conclusions on how it feels to be in my sex, to adorn my body, to seduce myself and my lover, and the nature of truly being an embodiment of the energy of divinity through creation. I think this shoot is a perfect example of what that looks like. I am open to what feels natural and good. I don't hold anything back and I allow myself to receive through the pleasure of beauty, desire, and the material experience of this existence in alignment with heart and soul. I flow with the expression of my being. I can give more to my partner and to my life when I orient from this place. I feel more myself, more at ease. I can orient from a place that truly allows the goddess to be seen. It is always so beautiful to watch my partner receive of the feminine when I am truly orienting from this place as well. He lights up when he sees my truth, when I express myself fully, and when I allow the uniqueness of my personal desire and dance to move through me. There is no shame there and I think one of my greatest endeavors while on this earth is to truly help women relax into who they are as sexual beings. ( Not that Britta needs any help with that! HOLY.)

    May you all feel into the energy of this beautiful, abundant Taurus Moon. It is a time of mystical and magical love and abundance. Look for the depth of your being, express yourself fully from that place, and receive the support of your earth. You are allowed to experience pleasure. You are allowed to experience connection. You are allowed to be here! Do it all with your whole being and show the world the truth of who you are as divinity. The energy of our sex is the energy of our creation. Surrender yourself to it. 




    I am sitting here thinking about Samhain and the place it holds in my life. In years past I have done more around the energy externally. I have built altars, created ceremony, found somewhere to externalize the celebration, but this year, it all seems a little different to me. It is presenting itself differently. I went out and shopped for a slow cooker recipe I found, I filled the trick or treat bowl with candy,  made the call to sell the tickets we had bought to see Goblin tonight because it feels like something is keeping me here, in my home, and I am listening. Perhaps I am listening more than I ever have before.  The voices I have been hearing  are angry and secluded and in pain but I am listening. I am staying home for them and I am listening to all of the parts  that want to hide in the basement behind the masks of suffering, of separateness, of ego and I am hoping that through me, through my heart that they feel heard. That they can sense how beautiful even the really ugly parts are as through those really painful, really dark places, I am able to locate the source of the wound. I am able to apply the healing. I can feel the cold grips of old values falling away and a new understanding of my worth here on earth revealing itself. Through the hearing, through the healing. The veils have been lifted in ways I have never experienced before allowing me to get a real good luck at the ugliest parts and when they show me their rotting, decaying face, I am gently tucking small roses behind their ears. There is beauty everywhere. 

    Sylvia Chang

    I was talking with a friend a few days ago about how sometimes people come into your life and you can tell it is angelic by the way that you immediately connect. That is what it was like when I met my angel, Sylvie. She immediately felt like my family. It is her birthday this weekend and I am reflecting so deeply on this vibrant and inspiring soul. She is otherworldly. She is both raw truth and glittery illusion. She exists in pale pink, sultry musk, and the glow of the moon. She is familiar, serpent, and queen. I am reflecting on her exuberant laughter and expressive eyes. The ways she will empty her purse on the floor, invite you to her nail polish party, and ask you to spill your guts on the carpet. I am reflecting on her honesty and her grace. Her endless love and loyalty. Her ferocious and protective nature, her just and honorable heart, and the way she loves when she feels safe. I  have never met a force like Sylvia before and I truly admire the strength, the abandon, the fearlessness of her character. There are no true words for the nature of this being but I really do love her. 

    Sylvia Chang,

    I hope this year brings you all of the love, support, and kindness you deserve. I hope it is filled with the best dresses, the perfect polish, Charlie perfume, all of the virtual stimulation you can get, a ton of money, and a deep understanding of your worth and your value to this world. Thank you for showing me mine. You are priceless. Happy Birthday, baby. 

    Forever and Always,

    Tifani Truelove
