Hola mi Gente! I felt called to record another episode on the fly LOL on the Moon in Gemini! I just took a request from IG from Heiddi and just recorded an episode that I hope you enjoy!
* Please note that on the podcast I said the Spanish Inquisition started 1300s but its official start is listed as 1478. Heretics were targeted since 1022 in France. Even though the clergy and judges in the Middle Ages were skeptical of accusations of witchcraft, the period 1300–30 can be seen as the beginning of witch trials.*
In this episode of the Biz Bruja Podcast, Vanessa Codorniu discusses what it's like to be a "baby Bruja" in your forties and how to release fear. She explains the concept of Brujeria and its connection to Latin American and Caribbean cultures. Vanessa shares her personal journey of growing up in a South American home that embraced mystical practices and how she reclaimed the term "Bruja" as a way to honor her ancestral lineage.
She emphasizes the importance of balancing spirituality with practicality and entrepreneurship. Vanessa also provides guidance for those who are just starting to explore their spirituality later in life, encouraging them to embrace their age and wisdom, define their own path, and trust their intuition.
- Reclaiming your Bruja-ness in your forties allows you to bring your life experiences and wisdom into your magical practice.
- Understanding that our spirituality and psychic abilities will not keep us from loss, death, illness, betrayal and the usual human experiences.
- Embrace your age and wisdom, as they enrich your magical practice.
- Explore different types of Brujeria and find the path that resonates with you.
- Trust your intuition and connect with nature to draw inspiration and guidance.
- Prioritize self-care and maintain a healthy balance in your life.
- Build a supportive community of like-minded individuals to share experiences and knowledge.
- Affirmations to begin transforming energetic patterns that are no longer needed at this time, reinforcing new beliefs.
