:: Spiralling ::

Hello peeps! The warm(er) weather brings so much life and movement and I am so ready!

It's been a tumultuous spring. It is every year. We have this idea of springtime being soft and beautiful and gentle. Flowers and sun and baby animals! It is all those things, and in reality it's a time of deep shifts as the light returns to the earth in the form of fire (from the Sun's increased presence, from Aries and Beltane). Fire is purifying, burning away all the debris and stagnant energy we accumulated over the winter. It's a lot to handle! For even as desperately as we want change, the process required is another thing entirely. It takes guts to change, to heal, because it requires us to step into the unknown. Giving up what we know, even if we don't like or want it, takes tremendous strength. Sometimes after a shift I don't even know who I am anymore, or what I want. I'm entirely new, and it feels really weird sometimes. 


After I've integrated and things feel more normally again, it can be jarring or disappointing to run into old situations again, or thoughts, that I've worked so hard to move past. I used to think I was regressing, or that I hadn't worked hard enough, or screwed up in some way to find myself in an old, familiar, unwanted pattern. But healing and growth isn't linear. It's a spiral. On our journey upwards, we will always revisit old situations and beliefs, this time with new skills, tools and understanding. These are opportunities to clear and transmute old energies. It's about perspective. From one point of view, looking down, it looks like we are circling around and around with no real direction. If we can stick our heads out of this circle, we can understand that we are actually on a path that is spiralling upwards -- and we have the opportunity to revisit situations and beliefs to see the deeper truths. You get to choose how you want to look at it. You also get to decide if you want to spiral upwards or downwards. Isn't that amazing? We have the power.

This month, I am offering Breathwork on the New Moon this Tuesday the 15th. It's also the same day that Uranus moves into Taurus for the next 7 years. It's such an auspicious day to breathe new life into our desires and dreams, and use this wild and fresh energy to catapult ourselves into the wild unknown. 

I also have the pleasure of co-leading a special workshop, Crocus: Awakening the Body Electric, with my priestess sister Sunder Ashni on May 20th. We're going to shake things up using our bodies, mind, spirit and plant medicine. It's going to be a blast!

As always, let me know if you need 1:1 support. Wherever you are in your journey, I am grateful that ours have aligned for this moment in time. 

Spiralling upwards with you,

Breathwork for the New Moon

Tuesday, May 15th
7:00pm | MINKA brooklyn

If you're ready for a change, ready to let go of pain, stuck energies and old stories, we’ve got you. Learn how to clear your body, chakras and aura and raise your vibration with the life force already inside you.

We'll use this life force to move stuck and stagnant energy in the body. This ancient eastern healing practice allows you to access higher and deeper states of consciousness, connects you with your Higher Self/Spirit, and helps you release baggage and heal at a rapid rate. It's nothing short of alchemy, and it will change your life. Plain and simple!

Crocus: Awakening the Body Electric

Sunday, May 20th
3:00pm | Brooklyn Strength

Crocuses emerge from the soil as the first messengers of spring. They bring first light, new openings and needed release, like the first crack of light through a tightly drawn curtain. Crocus medicine helps to cast off skepticism and limiting beliefs so that you may open in softness to the world. Their petals resemble arms, reaching out towards the Sun to receive its vibrant light.

In this two-hour workshop, we awaken our bodies, supported by breath and movement to help us drop down deep into our hearts.  We will begin with a Kundalini meditation to to shake off stagnant energies ready to be released. Afterwards, we will use an ancient Pranayama Breath technique to continue to move stagnant energy up and out of the body. Release what no longer serves you and leave feeling renewed and refreshed.

Tarot Symbolism 101

Tuesday, May 22nd

8:00-9:30pm EST | 5:00-6:30pm PST

Symbols serve as messages from our higher selves and the Universe, and is one of the oldest forms of communication. In the Smith Waite deck, each individual card is loaded with symbolism from Kabbalah, Christianity, Judaism, Paganism, the Golden Dawn and Astrology. Oh, and also numerology! It's a lot to take in, but we will learn how to make it fun and easy! What's important is your own personal and intuitive connection with the cards.

In this workshop, we will explore the myriads of symbols and themes in the Smith Waite deck to gain a deeper understanding of the Tarot, as well as use them as visual clues to aid in learning. Learning a few key symbols that run throughout the deck is an easy way to connect with the cards -- and it's my favorite way to read the Tarot.

Join us for a fun and inspiring deep dive into the Tarot! If you can't make it live, I will send you a recording of the class.

What others are saying...
"I love Ostara Apothecary medicines and essences! My seasonal remedy duo keeps my immune system up and my body healthy. They both taste delicious! I know exactly what’s in these medicines and that makes me happy. I take my flower essences daily, I believe they have been helping me on a vibrational level and with internal healing. Jordan is lovely, she definitely pours her love into her work!” — S.M.

“I just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful session yesterday. Your lightworking is so powerful and cosmic. I’m still in awe over what I experienced throughout our session. You helped me move through intense, deep blocks of energy that I wasn’t even aware were still an issue. I feel so much lighter, more connected and aligned — just beautiful plant medicines and lightworking. I can’t recommend your work enough!” — A.G.

"I admire Jordan’s creative intersections of different healing modalities and her honesty about her healing process. What really made me invest in a session was how she explained this service on her website. I was searching for an energy clearing session and I had several options to chose from, but this was most culturally relevant to me... Unlike other healers I have encountered, she helped to draw forth THE DEEPEST of the deep wounds. 

I am glad she helped me to complete an integral part in my healing. Prior to the healing, I was in a daze and vibrating at some of the lowest vibrational state possible. But after it, I was able to see Jordan in all of her Highest Self glory. I literally kept saying ‘I see you’. Like her eyes even looked different. I was able to see her as the Spiritual leader she definitely is... I am beyond grateful for what she advised for me to do. I will definitely book her and refer her to those who are seeking to heal. THANK YOU!" — E.D.
