The Priestess is the spiritual and feminine leader of the tribe. She has a spiritual connection to the Divine, service to a congregation, tribe or community, knowledge and leadership of spiritual rites and rituals, dedication and self-sacrifice. The Priestess has a strong history in ancient civilizations and tribal communities that maintain an energetic balance between male and female importance. The Priestess has an important role in the physical, spiritual and emotional well-being of her community.
Where does she reside & how do I know?
Sometimes I was alone. Sometimes other women were with me. And the feelings that arose every time I saw myself in this way were ones of peace, calm, tranquility, connection and a quiet power that coursed through my veins and quickened my heart. I knew I was seeing myself as the Priestess I once was. And so when I began to immerse myself in the latest Divine Feminine archetype of my journey — which is the Priestess archetype herself — I was touched to learn that Her frequency is both deep sapphire blue and water. And I certainly know not just recently but for more than a year now, I have been gently and compassionately guiding myself to move throughout my day with much greater depth and gentle ease. And the result for me has been a much greater connection to my feminine self.
Who is The High Priestess & what is her importance?
I felt to share about the High Priestess and her symbology. I have been told through spiritual guidance that one of my purposes in this life is to integrate opposites and balance polarities I was told this by spirit when visiting sacred sites , which is also fitting with the archetypes of both Persephone and the High Priestess. The High Priestess holds many gifts for this time on earth, for bridging light and shadow, for walking a path of intuition, for embodying the divine feminine, and unveiling deeper truths and mysteries about self and reality and receiving spiritual guidance. She is not so much about making a decision as holding decision-making at bay while you take time to listen within and gain knowledge, wisdom and answers about the nature of yourself and the universe and what will most serve you and all. The High Priestess archetype is depicted in the original Rider-Waite Tarot deck with its metaphoric symbolism standing in-between 2 pillars, one white and one black. A central veil behind the High Priestess featuring pomegranates and a date palm tree connects the two pillars, again suggesting the integration of opposites.
Women are collectively, individually and across the world waking up to their own spiritual power. They are connecting to a force and power within and not to a power vested only through marriage, by culture, academia or traditional institutions. Women are listening to their inner voice, to their inner desire more than ever before.
