The ROOT to RISE & SHINE Pathway!

Welcome to the ROOT to RISE & SHINE Pathway, siSTAR!! It’s like a yellow brick road to more magic, synchronicity, and connection! It’s going to help you to Sparkle Shamelessly in a sustainable way out in the world. This pathway is also foundational to our journey in SISTERHIVE, which is why we recommend going through it when you come into our Sacred Sanctuary. You can download the accompanying PDF here.

When you journey with this (r)evolutionary map as your guide, you’ll begin to root back into your body, the earth, the ancient sisterhood lineage and the Great Web of All Life so that you can remember who you are and why you’ve come at this most powerful time in human history. It outlines core practices to be able to RISE into your full power & sovereignty as a womxn, so you can SHINE with your full light & unique #SOULSPARKLE in the world.

Most of all, it’s an easeful & graceful way to eliminate overwhelm and receive deep support while navigating the spiritual path and walking it with practical feet in our busy world.  It will also help you develop beneficial habits and powerful accountability structures to support your thriving.

You also happen to get a badass cheerleading squad of sovereign siSTARS that are walking right beside you, fiercely holding you along the way!

This journey is a return, a homecoming, a spiraling inward to your core truth & authentic essence so you can be deeply nourished in your mind, body, heart and Soul. By practicing and walking this path together as siSTARS in the HIVE, it allows us to become Divine Manifestations of Love on the Earth plane, just like the bees!

NOTE: Not everyone who joins SISTERHIVE will be starting in Stage 1 – some may be further ahead in their journey than others AND THAT’S AWESOME because we can help each other to RISE. By watching the short intro video that goes along with the PDF and reading through the qualities of each stage, you’ll be able to identify which stage you’re currently in. Please come over and share that with us in our online sanctuary!

Here are the milestones and action items along the ROOT to RISE & SHINE pathway for you to follow along with. (Note: This is the same as what’s on the PDF so we recommend downloading the PDF and printing it out, so you can check the items off as you go!)

slow down and listen.jpg

Intention: I slow down & listen regularly to the pulse of what matters most.

If you’re in Stage 1:

    • You come into stillness regularly and tap into the wisdom of the body

    • You unhook from mass consciousness and have designated times to interact with the internet, social media and news media instead of allowing these into your nervous system at all times. You are a responder to social media and not a reactor: you choose when you want to tune in, and you don’t allow yourself to be on call 24/7.

    • You take designated ritual time each week, month and year to deeply listen to what is moving for you. You take a pause and time out for spiritual retreats and contemplation to hear the voice of your soul.

    • You turn down the noise of the outside world - media, news, tv, etc - and find silence in your life.  You listen regularly for the (r)evolutionary call of your soul and the next set of clues on your path, mining for inner gems along the way.

    • You use regular sacred practices to tune into your body during the day and notice how you feel.

    • You engage in what I like to call SOUL CARE, including slowing down regularly so you can feel more and take time for deep rest.

    • You treat your time and energy as sacred resources to be used mindfully and with great intention.

Celebratory Milestones:

    • You engage in embodied movement practices, meditation and other practices to help you slow down on a daily basis.

    • You turn your cell phone on silent or airport mode and take time to just BE regularly.

    • You create regular scheduled sacred space in your life just for you to tune into the voice of your soul.

    • You go on spiritual retreats & gather in sacred circles to help make space for and nourish your body, mind, heart & soul.

Sacred Actions:

    • Dance Qoya with us each month so you can slow down and stay close to the felt sense of truth in your body. Join us LIVE or for the recording after.

    • Use the Full Circle Health daily tracking pages

    • Watch the Sacred Slow Down practice video

    • Engage in the Labyrinth Practice or another of your choice as a navigational tool to return to your center, your truth -- to come back to what is real and where you feel most ALIVE. (video coming soon)

align and root image copy.jpg

Intention: I align with my body & root into the earth and sacred sisterhood

If you’re in Stage 2:

    • You understand the cyclical nature of all of life including our ROOT to RISE & SHINE Pathway. You experience the cycles of life-death-rebirth, and observe the seasons through the wheel of the year. You connect back to the land & our Original Mother. You honor your roots, deepen with your ancestors, & commune with the spirits of the land to help you ROOT to RISE.

    • You’re regularly aligning your schedule and your life around your personal moon cycles, the seasons, astrology or the wheel of the year. You’re deeply attuned to the earth and her innate rhythms as well as your own. You track your monthly cycle with an app or on paper and take time out to honor the change of seasons.

    • You are aligning with ancient wisdom and deepening your connection with the Divine & Sacred Feminine, honoring and integrating the deep feminine mysteries that have been suppressed for centuries. You tap into your innate rhythms & cycles, Moon wisdom, blood rites and more.

    • You stay close to your body and essence, tapping into your own inner compass of discernment and enhancing your intuition. You are aware that when you’re fully in your body you are more able to be fully in your power.

    • You know how you want to feel in your life so you can align to that. You stay close the the felt sensation of truth in your body through embodied practices.

    • You move your body the way she wants to move instead of forcing or pushing. You harmonize with yourself and your surroundings, attaining balance, ease, and effortless flow.

Celebratory Milestones:

    • You regularly track your cycle if you are still in your bleeding years, and if not, you track the cycles of the moon.

    • You have begun to unpack and heal through any shame around your cycle, your sensuality, your femininity or your sexuality.

    • You have a connection to astrology and the Heavenly Bodies, knowing that they deeply inform and affect our own embodied journey here on earth

    • You’re beginning to embrace and nourish your wildly radiant, powerful, magical, courageous & sacred self. You remain in the consistent inquiry of “what does it mean for me to be fully nourished?” and take action towards filling your chalice first each day. Then ask "How can all beings be nourished?"
