Wild Remembering: Words to Ignite Your Soul
Words can be magical or mundane. Humans have always had story as a way of learning, communicating, understanding, defining, creating the realities within us and around us. Bards were sacred beings in ancient times. We are all story weavers in our daily lives. So what makes a story special that it connects us to the Unseen world of sacred, magical, dreamtime? My featured guest, Christine Watkins, is a storyteller, author, and performance artist. She is a Priestess of Avalon and Storyteller Priestess. Enjoy her stories and our conversation into the Unspoken world behind the words.

Find Your Life Purpose Through Story
Do you love a good story? Well, I think it's in our DNA as humans to know the world through story. Story can literally shift the way the world is from within our consciousness as well as creating social norms and cultures. It's a powerful vehicle that can also be consciously harnessed for seeing into the Unknown.
Healing and magic happens when we can identify which part of what story we are in! This is what Cristina Craciun, sister Priestess of Avalon and member of the Order of Bards, Ovids and Druids tells me. She is consecrated to Goddess as a Bard Priestess and designated to hold the fire of ancient wisdom.
My guest, Cristina Craciun, is consecrated to Goddess as bard priestess, and she has been designated to hold the fire of ancient wisdom.Cristina is currently dedicating her work to prehispanic Latin American mysteries.

As part of her Latin American journey and apprenticeship, she is studying together with the Q'eros community in the Peruvian Andes to become a Nusta - priestess of Pachamama, Earth Goddess in the Andean belief.As a sociologist and semiotician, her purpose is to guide children into the beauty of discovering their soul purpose, through the skills of nature lore, sacred ritual, myths and proverbial wisdom.

Her cacao and herb lore ceremonies are children-friendly and they are not just entertainment, but a deep initiation into the sacred mysteries of Mother Earth.

Singing for and as Sacred Healing
The world opens when we face it with a yearning to connect. There are many entry points into the powerful, beautiful, and magical world of the unseen or Otherworld. One of them is through singing. Like any magical maneuver, one sings in this way when one can truly connect with the heart and soul capacity to listen with awe and reverence at Life. Listen to guest Shay Nichols, who is a magical, mystical, playful, soulful being who walks between worlds with her singing. I met Shay about 10 year ago and was blown away by the way she opened up all our voices to sing from our depths. It is a deeply moving, healing, sacred opening to sing from that place. In my view, she activates the Divine Feminine with her voice and how she guides us in opening our voices.
