Reclaim Your Body

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey SuperSTAR! How many times have you felt like you needed to alter the way you dress so that you would be treated better? Whether it was making yourself look sexier or hiding your sexy self so you wouldn’t get harassed, most of us goddesses have felt like we had to manipulate our authentic self-expression to be safe, get ahead, be seen, be respected or just be in the world. My guess is that there…

Confessions from the Dork Side

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey SuperSTAR! Are you a reformed dork like me (I’ve actually reclaimed my inner dork)? You know who you are. You used to make sure you sat at the front of class so you didn’t miss anything and your Trapper Keeper was full of notes you took in class because you actually wanted to remember and understand what the teacher was saying. Maybe, too, like me, you were also horrified of being made fun of,…

Plant Medicine Magic

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey SuperSTAR! We’ve already talked about cultivating relationships with Nature: plants, animals and the elements. But sometimes we forget that Nature is in our everyday lives, even when we’re not outdoors among the trees. What about what you put in your body to feel good? Whether it’s an aspirin, tea, flower essences, supplements, tinctures, prescriptions or herbs that alter your consciousness, we rely on plants almost every day (beyond our food) to help us have…

Sexual Sovereignty

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

What were the values and ideas about sexuality that were practiced in your home? For me, it was one simple phrase that covered sex, drugs & rock-n-roll: “Just say ‘NO!’” And I did . . . for a while. But when I finally decided to step outside the lines of expectation, there was a whole world of possibility and I had no clue how to navigate it. It’s taken me an embarrassingly long time to…

Exchanging Rage for Bliss

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey SuperSTAR! Of course you’ve never done this yourself, but have you ever been aware of someone feeling a lot of rage and suppressing it? Putting a tight lid on that pressure cooker so no one will know there is a bubbling molten lava explosion just aching to bust out and level everything? You may also be aware that if that pressure cooker isn’t given an opportunity to let off some steam, the consequences can…

Jesus & Kali walk into a cemetery . . .

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey SuperSTAR! I thought it would be amusing to check my “Schedule for planned newsletter topics” that I created recently so I could have a more concrete structure for how I organize my offerings. HAA HAA HAA! So much lately is uncertain that setting up structure has sometimes seemed like a ridiculous obsessive and pointless ritual. But, when I tuned in to what I had planned, Presencing Beauty, and felt into all that I have…

Priestess Lip Service?

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey SuperStar! There has been a LOT more use of the word Priestess these days. Women are calling themselves Priestess left and right. In some ways, it feels so good that the word can be used without hesitation, without fear, without recrimination, BUT, ironically, I often feel like women are giving themselves that title to serve their egos and their public personas, and that is completely contradictory to my personal definition of a Priestess. If…

Are you starving the Holy?

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey Beauti-full! Have you been withholding your brilliance because you’re afraid it’s “not good enough?” Way too many of us SuperPowered women (and men) on the path of service are withholding our most delicious offerings to the Holy and the rest of the world because we compare what we are putting out there to others. We keep those beautiful – even if slightly lop-sided or ragged on the edges – gifts to ourselves, afraid that…

Sacred Sign Language of The Priestess

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey SuperSTAR! As The Living Wisdom School emerges from the Chrysalis Temple with the Sacred frequency of the Goddess of Compassion, I am reminded of the potency of one of the Goddess’s Power Tools: Mudra (it’s a yoga for the hands). I also like to refer to it as Sacred Sign Language for communication with the Holy. My first practices, just out of a book (Healing Mudras by Sabrina Mesko), brought potent, quick and clear…

Empowered in the Hospital

By Amanda Elo’esh Johnsen, M.A.

Hey SuperSTARS!

As you probably know, it can be a really stressful place to be on top of the pain and other discomfort of being treated in the hospital. I was reminded of how…
