What We Are

Dragon Woman Awakens Book
This will be a story about Mother Mary- but not as we know Her.
She will not be a meek, silent peasant woman in this story.
Or a woman who was holy only because She was chosen by God.
This will be a different perspective, one where She is at the center, and Her own hero’s journey.
One where She is a Priestess, a trained mystic, a holy woman because of Her dedication to growth, spirituality, and the rising of the human consciousness.
This will be a story where She is empowered and chose to become the vessel to birth the savior.
This will be a story where She has a voice, and Her teachings are more than one line in a book.
This book will be a fantasy story, infused with what I know about the truth about who She was-
Mary was a noble woman, born of a line of royalty. She was trained in the mystic arts, and knew about Immaculate Conception, from Her Mother, Anne- who also immaculately conceived Mary.
The story will weave in the other realms, and mystical creatures like Dragons, Angels, and Elves. (got to through in my love for Middle Earth 🙂 )
So here, in the Basilica of Mary Queen of the Universe, where for the first time, I see Her with a cloak of a Priestess, I began writing.
I will be travelling to shrines dedicated to Her and praying for inspiration, and clarity as I tell story that has not been told before, through the eyes of one of the most powerful women in our History. And shifting it into Herstory.
During these times of illumination, one of the places I am targeting, is where the tear in our system happened. I continue to come back to the church: it’s dogma, it’s perversion, and it’s stealing of knowledge and wisdom. This was the rise of the Patriarch, and the abolition of feminine power. Mother Mary remained, but She is not even named in the Holy Trinity. She is silenced, and behind a veil- though Her power remains as one of the most celebrated dieties of all time.
So for me, shining light on the feminine aspect of this story feels vital, to reconnect something that was attempted to be severed.
I’m so excited, and grateful for the opportunity to dive into the story of a woman who has brought Grace, Compassion, Forgiveness, and Love to humanity for thousands of years…
