The Witchcraftsy Podcast
In a short cast I share a few intimate details about who I am: Why I started Witchcraftsy, Why is it called Witchcraftsy? How did I arrive on this path of healing and uncovering my own magick? Most importantly, I share my hope and promise for you in 2018, Dreamweaver.
Huge love for the individuals I can mention that inspired this share: Glennon Doyle Melton for her personal memoir I read in 2016 called Love Warrior. Thank you to the dearly departed Louise Hay, she was a huge part of my healing and growth. Pam Grossman of Phantasmaphile (Check out Pam's new podcast Witch Wave and I reference her segment on Stories of Strange Women). Love to Barbara Carrellas for all things sexy tantra, and a big 'thank you' to my friend, editor, and supporter... the talented Kitty Crimes. Lastly, thank you to my sweet Courtney for her unending belief in me, and abundance of encouragement and laughter. I'm so grateful 2017 brought you my way via comedian, and dearest friend Elise Kearns!
Cheers to 2018!
Who were you before you were you, Dreamweaver? Do you remember a past life? Today's juicy episode of 'this month in magic' is with our beloved Andye Murphy, the Rock 'n Roll Shaman. We turn to the Akashic records that hold the mysteries of our past lives. Why does it matter? Our past life work can be helpful for healing and deeper self-discovery, but it's important to approach such work with the reverence owed to keepers that hold our secrets safe. To be direct, if you seek past lives to be entertained by some bullshit that you were Cleopatra, you'll be sorely disappointed. BONUS past life guided meditation at the end with music provided by Lauren Gale (episode 2 guest!) and owner of Heart Nectar Healing.
It's really easy to ignore the synchronicities our helping team of beloved Spirit Guides create to get our attention.These signs are meant to lead us down a path of our highest service. They show up in the form of numbers, 'coincidences,' animals, or other omens. Do you pay attention? Do you follow? What excuses do you make to stay 'stuck?'

It's your lucky day, Dreamweaver. Bonus Episode 4 Content! Stina French reading and virtually performing one of my favorite poems, "An Open Letter to the Young Woman Who Hate Watched Me Dance All Crazy near Her and Her Boyfriend at the Show." It's a poem about a sisterhood of shared experiences, and all the ways we get pushed out of our bodies.
"I came a long way to get here. Into this body.
So now I walk around like I own the place
Because I do."
Hospice Chaplain Cindy Pincus wants us to talk about the things we're all afraid to talk about... particularly death and the dying process. We have options, people! Don't let gripping fear about how to mourn according to 'the appropriate police' hold you back from embracing your own magickal process around losing a loved one. Learn how gracefully letting go in all areas of your life will help you prepare for death. We also cover the erotic nature of communion, Cindy's journey to Christianity, and how aspects of shadow work are crucial in helping those in need.
