I awaken to joy.
I awaken to peace.
I awaken to magic.
I awaken to the sacred
in my life right now.
Welcome to #30DaysofGoddess for July! This month we explore orienting our lives by joy, simple practices, and keeping our promises. A 26 minute video is above, explaining the resources and options for this month.
NOTE: the first 12 minutes of the video are a basic intro to #30DaysofGoddess and the support materials. If you already know all of those things, feel free to skip ahead to minute 12, which is when I start talking about the theme of the month and about orienting our lives by joy.
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 July. Members of the Goddess Magic community on Patreon have access to further additional cards and resources in the patron-only companion post here.
And, I'm attaching our new "Prayers You Can Hold in Your Hand" booklet below! I'm really excited about this. (If you need a refresher about how to use these prayers, check out the last part of June's video.) This file is meant to be printed out double-sided ("long edge" or "side flip" so pages are right side up) and then cut in half and the halves stacked up like a sandwich. The page order only matters for a few of the pages and the center page--you will have to do some rearranging after cutting to put them in the right order. There is a brief explanatory video about this here.
Things to consider this month:
- How might you orient your life by joy?
- What practice might you let go of, what practice might you return to?
- Are you keeping it simple?
- How is your balance of novelty and familiarity?
- How is self-trust showing up for you? Might it be liberating to consider the idea that trust is not required?
#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.
- July prayerbooks in the shop.
- NEW: cut-your-own full color expansion packs for July
- #365DaysofGoddess devotional anthology: call for contributions.
- Companion daily practice decks and booster packs!
- Whole and Holy devotional book
Please remember: this practice does have its own website/resource hub and dedicated mailing list and in it in that newsletter that you will find a Daily Practice Starter Kit I've created which includes printable decks of both rituals and prayers.
In the temple of the ordinary
This is where we take root.
This is where we flower.
This is where we thrive.

Patrons at this level receive access to a patron-exclusive poem audio of the week which includes companion printable cards and an end of the year printable poetry book. This tier also gives you access to many of the other poems I write over the course of the year, our weekly ritual video and Facebook Lives, as well as some of the pdfs I create during the year and access to some of our patron-only audios, as well as many of my other patron posts in a variety of categories.

New for 2024: I'm excited to announce an overall theme of Living Our Magic. Each week will include written, video, Live, audio, and printable content focused around this broad theme. We are also working on a brand new Earth Runes system and members of the community will be the first to experience, use, and explore this new oracle method. 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.
You also have access to a private Facebook group, as well as most of my other patron posts in a variety of categories, including both audio and video as well as printable--on a variety of themes, including everyday magic, daily practice, goddess-centered spirituality, or just what I'm reading and thinking about. 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 (NOTE: kits are not offered during every month. We have approximately eight kits planned for 2024).
Goddess Magic Mail (+ Ritual Theory)
Magic mail! This tier includes periodic, surprise, card-based "magic mail" at random times during the year as I am inspired (4-6 times per year and one bigger surprise at the end of the year). Surprises will be flat items that can be shipped in an envelope. :)
As a Goddess Magic Ritual Theory member, in addition to being part of a rewarding, interactive goddess-centered devotional community with the benefits already described, you are also part of the "crucible of creation"--meaning that you will basically receive anything I make/record/film for Patreon during the year and periodic Magic Mail in your mailbox.

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.
