The women in my family have been reading our "tazas" for each other for as long as I can remember. We do these readings mainly when we all get together, which happens a few times a year.
After dinner, someone starts making the cafecito and we all know what's coming. These gatherings are spiritual, powerful, and this energy takes over us. We end up staying up really late, sharing stories and feeling the love and presence of our ancestors around us.
The older we all get, the deeper our intuition and the stronger our knowing and our bond to one another.
I have known that these moments together with the women of my family and these gifts - which always felt private and hidden - were my true inheritance.
For every time it felt forced to walk into a Catholic church in my youth, these nights with the women in my family feel like home in a way nothing else ever has. There is deep love in these moments - it feels ancient and so special.
I recently realized that when I decided to embrace living my intuition, it was taking these magical nights and deciding that I am going to live here always. That I carry that power, that knowing, that connection every single moment.
And I wholeheartedly believe that we all have access to this. That anywhere womxn gather with intention, this magic is possible.
It is my deep honor and privilege that I get to teach other womxn how to access this trust, knowing, and joy within themselves.
And from there, we can create whatever we want.
