The other day, the chiropractor whispered over me, “They say our babies grow up, but really they grow down. They’re these beloved souls taking their time landing into their bodies. And we — we’re landing with them — into our new role of Mother.”
I have a baby now. His name is Noah. Every day, he gets 2 ounces heavier. His squishy body breathes and squeals face smashed into my breasts, suckling his way down, down, down. With every guzzle of milk, he lands a little more. With every guzzle of milk, I land a little more, too.
I don’t yet know who I’m landing into. I don’t think he knows yet either. But 2 ounces at a time, we’re finding out together.
Before I actually crossed the threshold, went through the right of passage into Mother, I thought I knew who I’d be on the other side. Or at least, I tried to convince myself.
My journey with pre-conception, conception and pregnancy was a long, slow wintering process. I felt for sure with the arrival of baby, I would bounce into a professional spring. Would birth our child and with him, trail-blaze ahead into my next career chapter.
I’ve been wintering for so long! Let me at those ripe juicy buds of possibility!, 8-month-pregnant-Rachael insisted.
HAHAHHAHAAAAA, cackles the voice of my 2-months postpartum self.
Turns out, I’m not ready. Not in the way I thought I’d be.
Not because I’m nursing a baby every 2-3 hours without pause. (Although that certainly makes it harder.)
I’m not ready because I never really hit the bottom.
Let me explain.
I don’t believe all bottoms are rock bottoms. I think some bottoms are root bottoms, mycelial bottoms. Bottoms that make up the foundational fabric of everything interconnected and true.
I’m not ready because I don’t want to create what’s next from the top soil of my past. I want to create from the underworld of fertile, fearless truth.
So I’m devoted to waiting. For divine timing. For mythic sight. For those clear, synchronistic signs that point over and over again the direction of my next season.
And in my waiting period I’m taking the route I’ve always taken when a question is big enough, worthy enough.
The route of ritual and listening.
Which brings me to you, beloved. I want to tell you about my next small offering. My first offering, postpartum. And my first new offering in over two years.
It’s not necessarily the “new direction of my“ work, but it is my next coherent step.
It’s called MAGIC 4X, and the gist is simple, but so so exciting.
in magical places
with magical people
for magical purposes.
MAGIC 4X doesn’t fit into a logical business plan. It’s not a cash cow in any way, especially considering all we’re including. But it’s the medicine I need. The surest way I know for getting to root-level clarity. And the gift I feel most called to offer right now.
Plus, it’s gonna be SO. MUCH. FUN.
And lord, after the last few years we’ve been through collectively, we’re all worthy of way more fun.
In the last year and a half, I’ve invited people into my offerings mostly via private invitation. Emails to 20 or 30 people. Favorite students, past clients. I’ve been employed abundantly by a casting a small, curated net. And I’ve enjoyed that—maybe even needed it. To do my work more quietly & selectively.
I thought about doing the same for this. I know MAGIC 4X would fill quickly if I did.
But I have a feeling I’m meant to stay more open in this season of change. To not only cast a wider net, but to clear an energetically new space for the unknown to enter in. And maybe that unknown includes… you.
Whether we’ve worked together in the past or you’ve just walked into my lil internet world…
MAGIC 4X is a very intentional experience of synchronicity, divine listening and ceremonial coherence for a very small group of you. (8 beloveds, max.)
It’s a 3-month container for cultivating root-deep divine coherence, and it crescendos with a mystical retreat on the Big Island of Hawaii Sept 20, 21, 22 & 23. (OMG, wait until you see / hear about this incredible location!!)
It includes four 75 minute 1:1s with me, as well as four 2-hour zoom rituals bookending our 4-day, 3-night Hawaii immersion…
It’s $4444, with a 4-month payment plan available.
You, mythically and cellularly aligned to your next divinely inspired move.
Maybe you’re calling in a baby, or re-crafting your life postpartum.
Maybe you’re closing down a company, or birthing a new body of work.
Maybe you’re moving across the country, or transitioning a long-term relationship.
Maybe you’re asking gut wrenching questions about how to contribute to a regenerative future in the face of so much collapse.
If you’re amidst a big pivot energy in your life, and you want to ground, center, and radically align to spirit’s flow and plan, MAGIC 4X can support and nourish you at your root bottom beautiful truth.
Let’s let the call of our souls land all the way into our bodies.
Let’s cast spells and dance ceremonial devotion in service to our most resonant new moves.
Let’s grow wildly true together.
There’s so much more to share! One email at a time.
If you’re feeling full body chills, serendipitous alignment, or a quiet hunch of irreverent curiosity… reply MAGIC 4X and I’ll send the invite page and application to you as soon as it’s ready.
With love and excitement,
