We have been curled
in the in-between
deep and safe,
resting and waiting.
Now we feel a summons,
a wild urging,
a call to the cracking open.
There is a time
for being small and quiet
and there is a time for fierce insistence,
on being present and heard,
a time for stretching out,
for taking up space,
for pushing beyond the edges
and daring to grow.
The time for reemergence
Now we rise.
Welcome to #30DaysofGoddess for May! This month we explore sacred space tending, creating practices, Earthprayers, and the power of repetition in ritual. A 24 minute video is above, explaining the resources and options for this month.
As referenced in the video, I've also opened a new #30DaysofGoddess class for May with an Earthprayer theme. This class can be explored as a stand alone experience, regardless of your 30Days participation. Registration is here. A 33% discount is available with code "MAYMAGIC" and members of the Goddess Magic and up tiers at Patreon get access for free (see private post for access code).
- Card only Earthprayer add-ons are in the etsy shop here.
- Home Ritual resources referenced in the video above (printables are attached to the post).
One more reminder that you do not have to use or print all of these materials--pick and choose what works for you and how to use them. You may wish to make a card deck to draw from and just journal about it in your own journal in May instead of making a book. You may wish to combine the questions with a tarot or oracle deck daily draw--as in, use the card to "answer" the question you chose from the Earthprayer deck. You may wish to just read one of the prayercards aloud to yourself each morning or evening. You may wish to carry one of the word cards with you during the day or keep it in your pocket or by your computer. I have continued to make additions because I really, really love this practice and I enjoy having new/fresh things to add into my own prayerbooks. If you like keeping your own practice more simple and basic, you can even just continue using the same original 30 prompts and method and not add anything else to it.

Attached below you will also find our usual fresh start resources that will get you going with a #30DaysofGoddess practice, right here, right now. No need to go backwards or catch up. I promise!
You will also find a sampler pack of new prayercards and resources for May. Members of the Goddess Magic community on Patreon have access to further additional cards and resources in the patron-only companion post here.
I am taking a social media break in May to focus on writing my new book, though I have advance scheduled a daily affirmation post to align with this month's prompts.
Things to consider this month:
- Where is your sacred space and how do you tend it?
- What practice might you revisit or explore this month?
- How might you incorporate a photo into your practice?
- What is calling for your attention?
- What is your Earthprayer?
#30DaysofGoddess is a unique, multi-layered experience, the heart of which is creating daily practices that nurture, support, nourish, and sustain you on a goddess-centered path. Something I continue to emphasize is that there is no behind and there is no right way. Daily practice is infinitely flexible as well as infinitely personal, variable, and powerful. My purpose is to gather together all the tools, resources, and offerings that I can to help encourage you on your path. #30DaysofGoddess is intended to be readily able to fold into your existing practices, spirituality, as well as being compatible with the other teachers/resources that you enjoy.
#30DaysofGoddess helps build and nurture a personal, living experience of thealogy and the sacred that permeates the day. It opens the eyes, settles the spirit, nourishes the heart, and helps us return to trust over and over again. It offers a holding container for sacred experiencing, a sacred space for listening, and reminds us of how we are connected to the pulse of the sacred in each day. It helps create space for ourselves in our very own lives and reminds us that the Goddess is a near to us as breath, as heartbeat, as song. From this daily practice flows an awareness, a sync up, an attuning, and a faith in the threads of the holy that wind their way through all aspects of our lives. The prayerbook itself is much more than a journal, it is a temple on paper, a chamber of discovery, a treasure trove of wisdom and insight, a compilation of magic as it breathes its way through your world.
I really find that there’s something extra powerful both about having the container/the dedicated space AND having it be time-linked (only 30 days at a time) that makes this process special. This way, there is room to change and adjust and recommit and keep it fresh—no shame, no blame.
Something I try to emphasize is that this practice is not about creating something rigid. It is not about creating a formula, or a checklist of to-do's and things that you have to do. In fact, it's a creative process of turning away from rigidity and a returning to experience. All #30DaysofGoddess attempts to offer is a space to hold experiences, a container to hold you, a blessing basket for the sacred, not a list of things that you have to do.
Please remember: this practice does have its own website/resource hub and dedicated mailing list. You will need to be on the mailing list to get the new full deck of Mini Rituals that I created for June.
In daily practice,
our trust can flourish,
our faith can deepen,
and our joy can grow.

Weekly inspiration oracle cards, monthly guidebooks, and more will also be provided at this level in 2024.
NOTE: In 2024, our #30DaysofGoddess monthly practice will be shaped around specific goddesses each month (broadly--practices will still be applicable to any focus/practice, you do not have to be a specific goddess devotee to benefit) and I will continue to make monthly practice snapshot cards to deepen, expand, and evolve the practice.

This will be an up-close-and-personal look at the intricacies and raw magic of in-person priestessing, but also of the theories and philosophies that underlie ritual priestess work and some exploration of "self-priestessing" or personal devotional work as you tend your own hearth and the temple within. You will also receive a standing 15% discount in the etsy shop and have access to purchase patron-only surprise kits in the etsy shop when available as well as all the perks of the preceding tiers.
