Dave and l love creating sacred space together, behind close doors and in the Intuitive Goddess Academy and I do it even on my own.
I create sacred space by smudging the space either with sage or Palo cento, it depends on what I’m intuitively drawn to at that present moment. I prepare an altar, get my self ready and open circle. I open Circle by casting a circle, calling in the elements and Goddess and God and any deities if needing too.
There is a deep feeling of magic when creating a circle. I feel deeply connected with in and to the universe. There is excitement with in however its with groundness
I love how over the years creating sacred space through ritual has allowed me more and more to step into my power and own my power. I’ve seen and felt how it allows me to be consciously aware of how l create my life. We are all creators of our life. Whether we know it or not. When we create subconsciously life doesn’t seem to go the way we really want too. When we consciously create our life doors open up, after we close doors to what no longer serves us. And even at times creating consciously doesn’t go to plan we know the universe has a divine plan and we can tweak what we do and keep taking baby action steps to making it happen.
You always have a choice in your life. You can choose to continue to live and create subconsciously or become consciously aware and create a life you want, deserve and feel bloody amazing. Remember life isn’t meant to be where you feel like crap all the time, unless you like it and if you do then this blog isn’t for you. However if you want to start feeling grounded and amazing then your in the right place. I am here to tell you no mater what has happened to you in your past, all the past hurts, pains and traumas you can move to a place of having a amazing life and feeling happy and unconditional love. Love is your true vibrational nature as a spirit being. After all you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
Fear is an illusion. What the heck does this mean?
It means that fear (as a low vibration) is not your true nature. It is something created as humans. You get caught up in it, believing it’s real cause it does feel real but it isn’t real to your true nature of love.
What creating sacred space in ritual can do for you:
1. Connect with your higher self
While you are in sacred space through ritual you step out of the mundane world and into a space of high vibrational energy. You set the space of the vibration of love and only that of love can enter.
Your higher self is your spiritual true form. Where there is no fear, no hurts, no pains and no traumas. It is you. This aspect of you knows what’s in your highest good and is there to guide you in this human experience to learn what it is your needing at that time. It guides you to fulfil your sacred contract. The beautiful thing about your higher self is you can access her at anytime. At this point you may not be aware of her and through creating sacred space through ritual you can do this. Connecting with your higher self is there for all to connect with it. It isn’t exclusive to certain people. You can do this. I believe in you and feel deeply that you can do this. And no you can’t do it wrong.
If you could ask your higher self for guidance in your life at this present moment, what would you ask?
Today’s world is busy and at times crazy, right?
How does this leave you feeling?
Does it allow for you to sleep at night?
How is your body feeling? Relaxed? Calm? Grounded? Or tired, sore, stressed or anxious???
You have a choice on how you want to feel. No one can make you feel a certain way unless you allow it. If you feel triggered then there is some healing in side of you needed.
Feeling relaxed, calm and grounded is attainable through creating sacred space through ritual work.
Creating sacred space through ritual work is about self care and self love. You are worth this time. Look at it this way, you are a cup. You are a cup and when you get run down, tired and stressed your cup is empty. You try to push through but then the things you love leave you more tired and more stressed and resentful. This understandable, however it doesn’t have to be this way.
Take time out for you. Yes it does mean less time with your loved ones HOWEVER when you are with them and you have filled your cup up, you are over flowing and the quality with loved ones is at its peak. It’s about quality of time, not quantity of time.
Which would you prefer? Lots of time with a stressed out and anxious person or less time with a grounded and calm person who is fully in the present moment with you?
I know which l prefer!!!
4. Decrease anxiety, over active mind and quieten the gremlin mind
How are your thoughts?
Are they filled with loving and groundedness?
Or is the gremlin in over drive and having a party?
By gremlin mind l mean telling you you aren’t good enough, you can’t do that, your ugly, your too fat and you can’t do certain things, etc. Remember the 80s movie The Gremlins? In the movie the gremlins are trouble makers and have no intentions of doing things that are beneficial to anyone. And this is what the gremlin mind does. It does not have your best interest at heart.
Creating sacred space through ritual doesn’t kill the gremlin however it does quieten it down and gives you the opportunity to choose to either believe the gremlin or believe in your higher self.
I have found after ritual for the next few days I’m on a natural high. My to do list is just as long however I’m not stressed about it. Such a great feeling. No overwhelm of how am l going to get it all done, instead l feel calm, relaxed and grounded. I also feel connected with in and have a sense of knowing things will get done and can focus on what l can do in the present moment.
Being grounded is a fantastic feeling. Although something that is a daily practice. Things happen in life and knock us about.
When grounded you respond to life
When grounded you make decisions that work for you
When grounded you stay present in the moment, not stuck in the past or worried about the future
6. Clarity and direction
When the gremlin mind is quietened and your grounded you gain clarity and able to to make decisions that work for you and decisions are actually easier to make. You don’t have the gremlin telling you all the things you supposedly can’t do, remember your gremlin isn’t your friend and does not have your best interest at heart. Decisions made from the gremlin work against you. When you create scared space through ritual the gremlin is quietened
7. Improve relationships with all you connect with
Things that bothered you don’t bother you as much when you regularly create scared space through rituals.
When grounded decisions are made more with intuition and aligned to you and you are able to respond to what is happening rather then react. Reacting to someone else’s reaction is explosive. It adds more fuel to the fire. Nothing gets solved, things go even more down hill.
Creating sacred space for yourself in ritual will open up a whole new world for you. A world of grounding, inner peace and feeling of deep connection to yourself and the universe. When you feel connected to your higher self and the universe you are able to connect easily with others from a place of love, rather then fear.
Creating sacred space with other women is also magical. When being asked what is circling with women like, I still can’t find the exact words to describe it. It’s magical and that is the closet l can describe it and say you need to experience to see. When women have then done this and l ask them to describe it, they too can’t.
When l hold sacred space for women in circles it is a ritual. We have an opening and closing of circle, l smudge, we meditate and talk and listen to each other. This sacred space isn't about solving each other problems and telling each other what to do. This is something that is strongly not recommended. We aren't counsellors and there for not able to do this. What we do do is provide a sacred space for women to talk and be listened too. How do you feel when you are being listened too and not told what to do??
I have found this to be very affective in the healing process. Also too when given opportunity to speak openly, women come to their own answers. Other women can share their experiences but not give advice.
I started holding Women’s Circle in 2010 in my home and now for the last couple of years hold them on line. Doing on line has allowed women to come together in Australia and over seas and connect in the different sacred spaces. In the Intuitive Goddess Academy we have Women’s Circle, Red Lotus Circle (connecting with our womb space), Shaman Night and Rainbow Labyrinth Mystic Arts Circle, each month. It has been an honour connecting with women in these sacred spaces and watch them unfold each time every month. To find out more visit HERE
We now have a monthly Wellness Circle in the Awakening Spiritual Tribe!!
The Awakening Spiritual Tribe is a sacred space where Belle and Dave have created for like minded women to come together and support each other while each woman is on their own unique path. It is a safe place to come and unfold. To ask questions and share insights and open up your inner self with out any judgements.

Every reader has their own unique way of tuning in and reading. This comes from the readers life experiences and learnings. Everyone is unique and has a unique path. No one is the same. Sure there are similarities but not the exact same. If you find a reader and you love the way they work their magic then go back to them. Don’t expect a different person to read the same way as another. As a reader myself l am always fascinated with how others read
There are so many different oracle and tarot cards out there. Can never have too many hehehe. Even if you have a reader that reads the same deck as another reader they will read differently. I know for me personally I go through stages of using the same oracle card deck and when I have pulled the same card but for different people l can get very different messages off the same card. I do find this fascinating however l realise that when this happens it is the energy of the person l am reading for and the cards are just tools. The cards are tools, it is my intuition that I use. I have also have pulled a card for a women and the card has given me nothing to what my intuition has and each time I have got gotten feedback that I was spot on and this is from trusting buy intuition, not the cards. My hubby, Dave and l do one card Facebook live readings on our Facebook page and we do personal readings as well.
Doing the one card fb live readings has taught us so much and has really opened up our gifts. The readings usually go for an hour. We take in turns to read. And there is a LOT of energy, hence why l smudge a lot during the video. We get lots of energy come through and pick up on different energy from each women. We are blessed to do this as we have had a lot of feedback how much these readings have helped them. This is why l love doing readings. It is amazing how much even a one card reading can impact someone. I also love offering tips and suggestions to move forward. It drives me nuts when readers tell you something but you don’t know how to achieve it. I have taken these experiences of mine and now when l read l love offering tips and suggestions to help.
Why you have the power in readings???
You have the power because the reading is about you. It is your choice with what you do with the insightful information that comes through.
What happens when you don’t like what you’ve heard???
You can choose to make a change. When hearing something you don’t like isn’t always nice however in a reading this can be a blessing. It will depend on how you choose to look at it.
You can choose to let it get you down and be in a low vibe state
You can choose to look at it as an opportunity to make a change and it not happen.
In any form of reading you have the power. The reading is about you, not the reader. The reader is connecting to your energy and reading what is currently there for you
What to do if you like what the reader says???
Take action. Sitting around for it to happen won’t make it happen. Action is needed
Readings are just a moment in time. Lots can change from moment to moment.
The reader is picking up in the energy in that moment they are reading for you. Before l get a reading l make conscious effort to breathe deeply and ground. I ask my guides to come through and pass on what is needed for me to hear at this point of time. I ask this because yes there are things I want to hear about however doesn’t mean that is what l need to hear at his point I time. I truly believe that my guides have my best interest at heart and will guide me on my path. I surrender any expectations from the reading. Having expectations can lead to disappointment however surrendering them has always lead me to good surprises. Also surrendering any expectations also clears my mind and leaves me with an open mind.
Next time you go for a reading try these tips and see how you feel and what comes through for you!!!
Tips on getting a reading:
Record or take notes of your reading. Many things may not make sense at the time but at a later time you can go back and see if it was accurate or not and if it makes any sense.
To give the reader any information or stay tight lipped???
This is always interesting on what people choose to do.
For me when I go to a reader for the first time l tune into my own intuition and see what vibes I am picking up. I allow them to talk and see what comes through. If I pick up they are genuine l do speak up and give some information and confirmations for them.
Because l would like deeper insight. I don’t want them to keep telling me things that I already know. This works for me!
If the reading feels off, l listen and allow them to speak. I still record the readings because even though they may seem off at the time, down the track they may not be so off. But I am less likely to pass any information when the vibes feel off.
If you are you are going to get a reading to get the reader to prove themselves to you, then don’t bother. It is a waste of time and your money.
When people do this, they are have a huge wall up and generally the reader can’t read anything. You have put the energy out with a big wall up, so no information is getting through. It is a waste of everyone’s time. You can go using the tips above and not give any information and the reader can read for you. But if your after them proving to you who they are and what they do then your wasting your time and money. And as a reader myself and have had this happen a fair few times, it says a lot about the person, not the reader.
If you are a reader and have this happen to you. You can ask the person to do a little grounding exercise. I get them to close their eyes, breathe deeply and ground by visualising or feel their feet on Mother Earth/Pachamama. I do this till l feel their wall to start to come down. I do say to them l feel a wall up and because of this nothing is coming through. Being honest and up front with the person has sometimes caused a shift and their wall starts to come down straight away.
Readings are what is happening for you in that moment and you have all the power with what you decide to do with that insight!!! And readings are just that, insight. They aren’t set in stone!!!
Don’t give away your power. Next time you receive a reading take what feels right for you and make changes in your best interest, only you can do this!!!
Dave and l offer different offers with our readings. We do single readings and we also do duel readings. Duel readings are where both Dave and l read for you in the one reading. To be honest these are our favourite. You get two readers fro the price of one!! If you would like to know more about our readings visit HERE

Are you apart of our Book of Shadows Sacred Space??? A sacred space where you receive our Reawakening the Witch With in & Remember ebook, Journaling eBook, information on crystals and herbs, invocations and messages. This is all free, more information visit HERE
There is also the Sacred Circle shop!!!
What is a Book of Shadows?
According to google it is
“Is a book containing religious texts and instructions for magical rituals found with in the Neopagan religion in Wicca..”
This is only one definition and not necessarily one that will fit every witch.
For me it is a book that will vary to each unique witch. It’s where you put in what you feel is right for you and your beliefs, values and way of life.
Different ways to have a Book of Shadows?
You can have a beautiful book and divide it up in sections. You can buy a book or make one
This is my personal favourite and what l use, is a folder.
I love with folders how l can add things and take things out and re arrange it at anytime. I have lots of fun decorating the folder too. When I’ve grown and folder no longer feels me, I get a new folder and it’s easy to put in the personal information and re arrange it.
Electronic. There is many ways to do this now in today’s modern world of technology. I love using canva to write up spells and printing them out and then hand writing in my experiences. My writing is hard to read on a good day and canva is an amazing free app l can let my creativity flow and read what l have written. We make all our quest books for the Intuitive Goddess Academy in canva.
With electronic you can add videos
A Book of Shadows can be a personal one that only you see or it can be with others. The choice is yours.
What can be found in a Book of Shadows?
Personally l feel you put what feels right for you in your Book of Shadows.
Things you can add:
And anything you feel needs to go in. Always follow your intuition.
It isn’t about comparing to others, as this is personal and we are all on a unique path. Honour your uniqueness and honour your intuition.
Why writing it all down is important?
If anything like me and most people you forget. We like to think we will remember but we don’t. It’s hard enough remembering yesterday let alone years of spiritual practises.
In the Reawakening Witches Tribe and the Intuitive Goddess Academy membership l am always talking about journaling and how important it is to write your experience/s straight away.
After meditation write down what came through. It is fresh in your mind and later on when you re read you will be grateful you wrote it down. Also some messages may not make sense at that time however later they will.
With all rituals and spell work l have created and shared, l have at the end a journal section.
So women can write what worked, what didn’t work, what followed afterwards and was there anything they would change. I do this so if they do it again they can read their journal and do it so it works for them. They don’t have to try and remember, as it is all there for them.
It is fun and nice to go back over your Book of Shadows and see how far you have come. We tend to focus on what we are yet to do and what we haven’t done. I feel it’s really important to stop and look at how far you have come and celebrate!!! You will be amazed at how far you have come and it will be further then you realise.
I have lots of journals and note books. Can never have to many l say. I write in a note book and then will transfer into my Book of Shadows. I have messy writing and when in the zone my hand can’t keep up and the writing is really messy. Writing in note book allows for me to get it all out and then spend time re writing it nicely in my Book of Shadows.
Decorate your Book of Shadows any way you want. Let your creative juices flow. Make it colourful or black and white. Paste, paint, add dried herbs. You can write or use dot points. Have a mixture of writing and print outs. There are no limits
At the Intuitive Goddess Academy we have created a Book of Shadows Sacred Space. Here we are sharing juicy Witchy things you can either add to your Book of Shadows or change the information to work for you. I am very big in taking what works for you and leaving what doesn’t work for you. The only right way is the way that feels right for you. When you do what feels right for you, you attract more of this in your life, you grow and learn the way that is right for you.

Awakening Spiritual Tribe is women coming together to remember and awaken their spiritual path in a sacred space with Dave and Belle.
It is a scared space for women to explore their inner witch and to know thyself!
Why Know Thyself?
When you know thyself you get the most out of your life. You begin to respond to your life, rather then react causing more drama.
You feel grounded and the sense of inner peace expands.
I love supporting, sharing simple but affective life long tools to help women know thyself deeply and have a life they truly love and deserve.
When you know thyself and your triggered you are able to stop, breathe, ground and see the true meaning of a trigger and not just someone pushing your buttons and pi$$ing you off.
When you know thyself you do the shadow work, you reveal the gems that are with in you. Although doing shadow work isn't always easy and joyful, you realise that its a journey worth taking and the gems you uncover are truly amazing and you can't wait to uncover more gems with in.
You begin to heal from past hurts, pains and traumas when you begin to know thyself. When you continue to stuff things down and not heal, they play out every day. This occurs in a subconscious way. You don't realise it, however do you notice some things keep happening, its the same sh!t but different day?
When you heal you raise your energy vibrations, therefore the past hurts, pains and traumas don't keep playing out.
What can the Awakening Spiritual Tribe do for you?
~ The As Above, So Below Readings give you a deeper insight to you and your journey. Having deeper insight allows for you to move forward and have direction that is aligned to you!
~ The Remembering every month is about remembering what you already know. We know deep with in you you already know this stuff. However at times unlocking things on your own can be challenging. We provide a sacred space with remembering videos and tools to guide and support you in unlocking what is already with in you.
These remembering also give you simple but very affective tools for life. Tools to:
- go with in
- when life’s little things come up, these tools guide you into being present in them moment, coping and moving forward
~ Connect with likeminded women. In this amazing Sisterhood there is no judgment especially since we are all on our own unique paths. If you aren't in a space where you can come out of the closet, then this sacred space is for you. Share your witchy side, all questions and be supported.
~ Ritual/Spell work is to allow you to go deep with in and expand your light. It also you to connect more with the divine and your higher self. You stand more in your power and use your power to consciously create your life. In other words manifest and bring into your life what you want more of.
~ Reflection call on zoom. This gives you the opportunity to speak with Dave and l and the Sisterhood. Sharing experiences is a huge source of inspiration, even when we don't think so, it is!!! It is also opportunity to ask questions and all together there is a huge wealth of knowledge. It is a space where everyone wants to lift each other up and see each other shine.
~ Meditation. Meditation is about quietening your mind down for you intuition and higher self to be heard. This is where all your knowledge and wisdom is. We want to support you and guide you unlocking all of this with in you. Meditations are around 10 minutes give or take few minutes. We understand most people don't have lots of time to sit and meditate.
Why this space was created?
We created this sacred space as we are passionate about what we do and it comes from our own experiences in life. For me personally l have had a fair few dark nights of the soul. The darkest came in 2015 when at 27 weeks pregnant my son, Isaac, was stilborn. The next few months got darker and darker until l couldn't take it anymore and wanted to check out. As i was planning this a divine intervention occurred. I heard, well had this strong knowing message come through. That if l ended my life l would be repeating family history and leaving my two kids with out a mum. You see when l was 17 years old my mother committed suicide (thats another blog for another day). In that moment l made a promise to live my life fully, with passion, fulfil my purpose and be a great role model for my kids. Then begun the crawl out of that big dark black hole. It wasn't easy, however worth it. I was able to turn my life around very quickly, from the darkest to the best its been and keeps getting better. My grief is still there, l have learnt and still learning to live with it. However l don't let the grief run my life. Life is too short and precious. I focus on what l learnt from my son. Although he was here for such a very short time, he taught me a LOT!
While crawling out of that big dark black hole, l did it on my own. I was blown away with the inner work l did and how l turned my life around and how quickly too. From this experience l spoke to a lot of women and realised how many others knew my pain. I realised it didn't have to be this way, there is more to life and l wanted to support and guide women to having an amazing life, no matter what past hurts, pains and traumas they had. I dug deeply into myself, my inner witch and inner healer. I looked at what l loved to do ~ like women’s circles that had been holding since 2010 and how connecting on a deeper level with my inner witch shifted everything and was time to share. Was time to create sacred space for women to explore themselves and to get to really know themselves and bring back the power of Sisterhood.
I am super blessed that my amazing hubby, Dave, is my biggest supporter and is apart of all of this. You see when l did the inner work (and still am, always learning and growing) crawling out of that big black hole, Dave and l got together. I finally was with a man who loved me for me and supported me fully. Truly an amazing blessing!!!
