Natalie Walstein on The 2021 Year Ahead (E177)
2020. Well...what can you say really. It’s been a year like no other in my lifetime and I am sure for many people decades older than me too. It has been filled with challenges, realisations, learnings, unlearnings, change and I would dare say for many if not all of us - uncomfortable growth and even loss and grief. And so as we near the end of this tumultuous year what is it that may lie ahead for us in the stars for 2021? Is there more of the same ahead? Or something new and fresh on the horizon? I couldn’t think of anyone better to ask this of than cosmic astrologer Natalie Walstein. Natalie is here with us today to guide us into 2021 and what the stars and planets have in store for us...remembering always of course that your own free will is your greatest compass and guide.
Annabelle Sharman on Yuma Healing (E176)
I never take for granted what an extraordinary privilege it is every time a guest is a yes to coming on The Priestess Podcast. And I certainly feel that privilege and honour today with my guest Annabelle Sharman. I first met Annabelle at a beautiful workshop about Indigenous wisdom and sharing, where she gave me a healing. And it was while Annabelle was holding space for me that I received a call, retrieved via message just moments after, that a dear friend of mine had passed. It was not a timing coincidence. Annabelle and I have remained in touch and connection to each other ever since and I am constantly in awe of the beautiful and deeply healing work she puts out in the world. If you are a coach, counsellor, healer or space holder yourself, I’m honestly not sure there is someone I could recommend more highly right now to explore your own capacity to hold space and BE the guide you most long to be. This is Annabelle’s magick - bringing out your own - through her Yuma Healing.
Pia Gaia on Building a Goddess Temple (E175)
In general whenever I have thought about Goddess Temples, visions of the ancient world have come into my minds eye from places such as Greece, Rome, Mesopotamia and Crete. Thinking about a Goddess Temple in modern times was not something regular for me until I had the experience of going to one in Glastonbury in 2019. It’s challenging to describe how truly special it was to walk into a physical space entirely devoted to the Goddess; a haven of beauty, wisdom, devotion and spiritual guidance there for the greater good of all. And so when I learned that an incredible group of people were renovating a very special space right here in my home town of Melbourne, Australia, I could not get my special guest on the show today quick enough. Priestess Pia Gaia has grown up in a world entirely surrounded by the Goddess and she, along with a group of devoted humans, are creating a Goddess Temple in Melbourne devoted to The Great Mother. Pia shares with us today the journey to making this space happen and how it still continues now. If you’re as inspired as I am from listening to Pia, you’re going to be putting it on your must do list of spiritual places to visit very soon.
Hayley Carr on Fearful to Fierce (E174)
Have you ever drunk a feargarita? Not a MARgarita but a FEARgarita? Well I didn’t even know that such a concoction existed until I read about it on the website of my Priestess Podcast guest today - Hayley Carr. And in this interview ahead you’re about to dive into the world of this mindset maven and world champion sportswoman who is going to encourage you to DRINK UP! Hayley is one of the most incredible coaches I know in the personal development field right now. She has a particular passion for supporting incredible people with their mindset and how they can, in particular, dance with fear and uncertainty and make it work for them in every aspect of their calling. And so...the bar is open everyone. Step up and have a drink with Hayley and I today to move from fearful to fierce!
Leonie Dawson on Embracing Your Dreams (E173)
I think it’s reasonably safe to say that if you are blessed enough to be alive and listening to The Priestess Podcast right now you have dreams that you would love to come true. Hopes, desires and wants for the life you want to lead - as a spiritual expression of your soul and who you truly are. What does it really take to embrace those dreams and make them happen? That is something of course that is going to be different for every person. What works for me or someone else may not work for you. And that’s what makes my guest on the show today - Leonie Dawson - so fascinating. As an author, course guide and artist, Leonie has created a multi-million dollar business doing what she is deeply passionate about, and she has touched hundreds of thousands of lives in doing so. She’s quirky, creative, has extremely strict but loving boundaries on her time and needs, and is living proof of what can be possible when you fully embrace your dreams and reach for the life that you most want.
Susanna Barkataki on Decolonising Yoga (E172)
If you do yoga or have it coming into your field as something to explore, then my guest on The Priestess Podcast today, Susanna Barkataki, is going to be Goddess sent to you. I have this small theory, (which is clearly untested in any scientific way but still pressing on my heart), that most of us do not really know what yoga actually is. What we think it is, is a version sold to us through a white and capitalist lens that has stripped yoga of it’s full spiritual and social meaning to just be about what we do on a mat. Susanna is here to share with us today how yoga is so much more than likely what we think we know and how to decolonise our practice and view of it. She is enlightening, warm and also challenging in true yoga practitioner form.

Wow, so informational and inspiring!!
When I first started inner work this past year I really had no knowledge of any part of this world. It’s been incredibly interesting, and uplifting! I can’t stop listening so I’ve been binging all the episodes!
I got it
Let me start with I LOVE this podcast! I am on a journey of rediscovering my inner priestess and femininity.
I definitely love the message of learning to accept help. It’s something I’ve been struggling with in my journey. I have an issue though. The perceived explanation of why we say “I got it”. I have worked in predominantly masculine careers, Airborne Medic, comercial fishing, sheet rock on and on. The reason I say no thank you is because it keeps me safe. While I appreciate help, I have found it is often used to exploit me in a time of need or as an example of how incapable I am at doing my job compared to my male counterparts. I got it syndrome has developed over the years as a form of protection. If a female mechanic walked up to my car I would be much more comfortable accepting help. I am from Alaska and we have to be very self sufficient because often there is no one else around. Moving to the continental United States, well things are very different. I find the help I receive here is usually an attempt to get my number or get me alone. I just think it’s important that women know it’s okay, that “I got it” Is a form of defense and at times accepting help can put you in danger. Thank you for your podcast! ❤️
Love this show so much. Found you from the interview with Alana Fairchild, and have been hooked since. Thanks for the fabulous content and can’t wait for what’s to come.
