Ritual Coaching had been coming to me in pieces since I was a very small child. Then starting in 2013 it began to come in large, life changing chunks. Often I felt confused and unsure of what was going on. Then one year ago I received a download so clear that everything suddenly made sense. I sat with this information for a while to digest what was happening and to clear my energy system out. In this down time I had a magical mentor step in that changed my life. Jen Lemen is her name and she is pure earth magic.
Jen helped me to do a threshold ceremony which became the cornerstone of Ritual Coaching. We spent the day on a local Island in the Puget Sound, stomping around in our rain boots in nature, building fires in the log cabin, resting, talking and laughing. We build outdoor altars to seal what I was leaving in the past and other altars to build my future. She built an altar to me as an offering for our work together. She was the first person I told about my big dream and she said she could see sparks flying all around me. That I had find my path. We came across Deer and Owl medicine while we were doing our work which has stayed with me this whole time. Even one year later almost on the same weekend, I took a trip to the woods and found an owl feather along with multiple deer crossing my path.
Two months ago I hosted an evening with Jen at my place in Seattle and it was beautiful. We made secret scroll jars and candles for everyone. Jen told the most beautiful stories and I just sat back in awe of grateful I am she has come into my life. I am hoping we can host another retreat later this year and actually make some outdoor altars and do some Ritual Coaching work. Intention Set!
A month ago Jen sent me the link to her new site and I cried with Joy. Finally I have a place to send people when I talk so highly of my magical mentor. Finally she is ready to be seen! Another one of Jen's clients Shelley Modes has been publishing this beautiful series about working with Jen. You can find it here. Start with the first entry as the story unfolds from that moment.
Sometimes people step into your life at just the right moment when you are ready and open to working with them. I am so grateful I took the leap to work with Jen. It has been life changing for me.
