Hello. My name is Joanna, I’m 35 years old & living in London with two fabulous little cats. I hope that through my posts you will get more of a feel for who I am and what I believe in, but first I’d like to explain a little about how I arrived at the decision to create this blog, which I hope you will come to enjoy and share with others.
I spent around 8 years of my life living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I met a fabulous woman, who has helped me enormously in spiritual growth. Her work has enlightened and healed me in ways I can’t explain, and she taught me so much about the sacred feminine through Ancient Egyptian teachings, belly dancing, women’s circles, Oracles & Tarot, healing techniques and the power of the moon. It was a wonderful and magical experience for me, and having lost my own mother at a young age, my heart was craving connection with women. During this time I met many people with such amazing gifts, and when I moved back to the UK, it was difficult for me to accept that I’d lost something that was quite a significant part of my life. Back in London, I started to research alone, I ‘d get my hands on books on the goddess, and started to learn about how my body and emotions changed with the phases of the moon. I went to a goddess circle which was profoundly healing, but didn’t feel it was the right place for me.
I found myself unhappy at work, and focused on changing parts of my life, choosing more sustainable ways of living, I spent much time in the kitchen distracting myself with new recipes & became passionate about Persian cuisine. But it didn’t matter how much I tried – I just couldn’t shake it.
At the end of 2019, I made the decision to quit my job & I know in my heart it was the right decision. Shortly after, while I was running in the gym, and I’d been praying for inspiration, a new direction, a new purpose – it just came to me. I had already learned so much that could be passed on to others. Perhaps it was time to share it. Then I thought, it would be a lovely way to do this through a blog, where I write about my experiences, and also talk about the goddess – for she in her many forms has experienced much and has so much to teach us. I thought that this would be a wonderful way for us to heal our feminine sides and bring back so much love into the world, by transforming the wounds we have suffered into something good.
That is when it came to me, the idea of journeying with the goddess. Spiritual journeys where we can reconnect with her, learn and heal.
So what does Monday have to do with it? Well, it just so happens that Monday is the day of the Moon, and connecting with the Moon is wonderful for us all.
Besides, isn’t it time we transformed Mondays into a day we look forwards to? a day we enjoy and love? Wouldn’t that be fabulous?
