Ep. 55: Brujas of Brooklyn on Honoring Your Womb, Spiritual Health Realignment, & Their Dominican Mother

The Brujas of Brooklyn, Afro-Latina identical twins Gricelda and Miguelina, open up about their spiritual journey led by their Dominican mother. Led by academia but still using the spiritual tools they grew up with, they’ve organized a tight collective of women of color in their community to empower, protect and educate in hopes of going beyond limitations they were exposed to while growing up. Miguelina also goes into detail about the health scare and traumatic breakup that ignited her spiritual healing and Gricelda talks about what inspired her to become a doula. 

We also go to see these practical magic makers before their pink tent event which retroactively honors the moment when women got their period because in our culture there is a lot of shame tied to it. Their expertise in womb-healing will inspire you to honor about this pivotal moment in your life. Tap and own your womb-power, brujas.

Ep. 36: Mestiza Magic Founder Valeria on Why Coming Out as a Bruja Was Harder Than Coming Out As Queer

Valeria of Mestiza Magic is not a traditional woman. As she puts it, she’s “that bruja that has really long armpit hair and likes to cuss out loud.” We were instantly attracted to her knowledge of Mexican curanderismo, owning her bruja identity as a form of healing and complicated but touching journey on coming out as a bruja to her mother. Her mom tries to sway her to not identify as a bruja because as she put it, "it's not something that's embraced in her family.”

The Massachusetts-based queer mestiza bruja is on her way to New Orleans to expand her creativity in reading and designing tarot cards and recently launched blog which came to her in a vision best described as "just a little bit of poison and a whole lot of consciousness."

Check out her Instagram account @MestizaMagic and website at MestizaMagic.com where she crafts her existence outside of the patriarchal world that tells her she’s not powerful.

Ep. 26: Nat and Cindy on Embracing Your Inner Darkness

On our journeys to self-love, we've both come across a sort of darkness that at first made us uncomfortable. But we learned that in order to truly explore, accept and love ourselves we had to acknowledge and embrace the dark parts as well. Psychologists refer to that dark side, or shadow self, as repressed ideas, impulses, weaknesses, desires, and even embarrassing fears. The wild and chaotic side that for many of us are the source of our creative energy. But, remember, shadow cannot exist without light, brujas. 

Listen as we get into our recurring dark and strange dreams, lucid dreaming, fears, and morbid side of ourselves and how we embraced our dark side in order to see the light.
