I am Priestess of the Mysteries of the Dark.
I walk with you into and through your shadow lands offering you a cloak of protection for the journey.
I retrieve your blazing heart from the entombment of despair, pain and shame.
I am Holy hell raiser.
I am the one who watches and waits whilst you put on the armour of procrastination, bypassing, denial, gossip, projection, competition, neglect and criticism until you realise it's too heavy to wear.
I am protector of your maiden, mentor of your mother, fuel of your lover and trainer of your huntress.
I am hermit and oracle, lone wolf and guide of the pack.
I am receiver and transmitter, reflective and invisible.
I have no interest in small talk. I am she who sees. I am she who places the mirror in front of you until you see your truth and power. And own them. Fully. And it embodies them. Fully.
I am Mistress of the Goddess. The embodied expression of the gift of new beginnings through living death.
