Courting the Divinity of Pleasure: The Fire Has Already Been Lit

December 27, 2020

Today we explore the sacred threshold of endings and beginnings.

We dive deeply into our vision and trust with the poem:

The Truth About Gathering Joy 

There is a story I will tell 

about not compromising
living a life of big love
trusting truth
this story is rooted in magic 
beautiful but not always pretty
moments down on the ground 
do not be fooled
these times are perhaps the (w)holiest 
I will build a circle of sacred for you
to embody the desire you are holding
this is the medicine for all of us now
the fire has already been lit
many are waiting for us
to join them there
wisdom keepers are pouring gifts through the dense mists of fear
you will hear how to love your passion 
into creation
taste the truth perched 
on your lips
some of what you love will choose a new form
you will let your sadness want you
float in your blood like eager lanterns of hope
you will close your eyes and trust
your hands know what to hold onto 
and how to let go
you will let your desire council you 
visit the place where longings live
your soul will make itself known in your body
a new song will emerge from your bones
this is how you will know your own fierce story
the only one you can live
so many of us making new stories
from the ones already undone
it’s closer than you think
this is a story about deep love.
~Wendy Candida Havlir Cherry, 2020
Holding hope and fear, joy, and sadness at the same time.
Working with trust and the ways your body knows what to do. 
What will you hold onto from this year (and your entire life) and what will you let go of?
How will you be held?
A short guided meditation—flowing with the divinity and grace of your breath—available right here, right now, in the home of this moment.
The sudden uprising of yes in your inhale & the rest and letting go in the descent of your exhale—and the pause in between.
In the length of our longing, belonging arrives.
The Mistress of Longing comes to us as a dear friend and companion of deep love. She is hope and a reminder that we are never alone.
Moving into a deeper relationship with your life—and permission to (be)long. Imagine moving beneath what you perceive you long for and into the holiest and wisest doorways of your soul’s true knowing—an oceanic love—longing is an ever widening expansion into true home and union with the sacred.
Life is a constant divine invitation—a divine hand reaching for you—how will you reach back? What parts of yourself will you step toward? What parts of yourself will you no longer reject but instead gather and embrace? With wild and holy abandon?
Wind & Water poem from my first book, The Reach is (W)holy.
As you move toward 2021, how are you holding death and life? And the idea that grace is infused in every moment, even when you feel dismantled? 
Meeting ourselves and others from a place of compassion and messy alchemy. 
Writing prompt: How am I wild AND holy? When have I felt wild and free, liberated, holy, truly myself? When have you chosen yourself regardless of what might be the result? What is true about you now? What are you willing to choose no matter what? How is life asking you to come out of the darkness and say yes to something new and into the light? What am I willing to no longer compromise?
May you know boundless blessings. Thank you for listening. 
As always, YOU are sacred. This moment is ceremony. You do get to live your wildly naked truth. May it be so! 
Big love & rose petals,
Courting the Divinity of Pleasure: Behold the Blessing Bowl

Courting the Divinity of Pleasure: Behold the Blessing Bowl

December 20, 2020

This is a channeled episode and part of a special series, Courting the Divinity of Pleasure, dedicated to the Mistress of Longing.

Consider how you are living your wildly naked truth and/or how you would like to?

We explore a poem from my first book, The Reach is (w)holy, entitled Blessing Bowl.

Move softly in

caress your strength

it doesn’t have to be hard

write a new story

rest inside that place

where grace and fierceness reside.


How can your softness be fierce? How can you be a blessing bowl for your life?

How have your own ancestors taught you about strength? What alchemy is calling you to transmute that which feels hard?

There’s no part of you that isn’t holy. 

Each story of you is part of the great book of life. There is a remedy in every store. 

The difference between a nightmare and a dream.

The New Moon & Solar Eclipse—how darkness mantles the light and then makes it better known—something new is being revealed as another line being added to the story, to the blessing bowl, of your life.

Channeling the Mistress begins at 13:18.

Moving past closed doors and taking the leap into the now.

“Darling, this is a rebirth.”  

This is a new fresh life.

Connecting with the earth and being bathed in a new vision. Mirrors that connect us. The Mistress of Longing pours healing ambrosia over us—

this is the nectar of Hummingbird medicine. It is time for our voices to quiver and release the sweetest sounds of truth, love, and grace to be in the fullest expression of who we are.

We are wearing the coat of a Hummingbird.

Let the doors that are closed be closed. Open your eyes to the new life around you now. 

What is the wildest vision for your life at THIS moment? 

Trust what you see/feel/know now.

An invitation to play with a blessing bowl practice for the rest of the month (or as long as you wish) to activate, call in and live your wildest, most expansive truth with reverence and attention.

Working with the both/and space—two more short poems shared, “heart door,” and “wild woman within,” from The Reach is (W)holy.

For the rest of December, I’m gifting a signed copy of The Mistress of Longing when you purchase a “she wants you to know” session. These are channeled sessions from the Mistress of Longing specific to you and your life. These are great gifts, too!

May you remember that you are sacred. This moment is ceremony. And you do get to live your wildly naked truth.

Thank you for being here. 


Courting the Divinity of Pleasure: Let Yourself Be Held in Sacred Surrender

Courting the Divinity of Pleasure: Let Yourself Be Held in Sacred Surrender

December 13, 2020

Today Wendy channels a message from the Mistress of Longing about surrender and being held.

Surrender is a sacred practice and one where ultimately, we can find softness.

We are reminded that we are Spirit in human form.

We are invited to step into the stillness of surrender now.

We are given a release ceremony—

—effortlessness is available

—we are being held

—despair = des|pair is to be severed—or a perception of being separated—which leads to a coming back together

—longing is what leads to re-union.

”Surrender is what happens in the great cathedral of life. You came here to live and have this experience as fully as possible.”

”I am here smoothing the worried wrinkles on your forehead.”

If you’d like your own copy of The Mistress of Longing, you can order here

If you’d like to dive into a deeper, more personalized channeling, you can sign up here

—for the rest of December, I will include a personalized, signed copy of the book as a complimentary companion to your session. 

May you know every blessing. May you remember you are sacred. This moment is ceremony. And you get to live your wildly naked truth. So may it be. 




Courting the Divinity of Pleasure: A Sacred Channeling and Ceremony

Courting the Divinity of Pleasure: A Sacred Channeling and Ceremony

December 6, 2020

Today I channel guidance from beyond. We are provided with a guided visualization, ceremony, and a new way of seeing.

Guidance and ceremony begins at 3:38 minutes in.

We are crossing over a bridge and into a new threshold. There is reclamation here now. We are being courted by and choosing the divinity of our own pleasure. This reclamation is an act of baring one’s soul and confronting the fears that are masquerading as truth, keeping you from moving through to the next part of your path. This recording is a ceremony for you.

There is a wall you have been bumping up against. A glass wall. Look down at your feet now, you’ve been shattering this wall and the pieces are there to be cleared away. We are opening into the vision of the heart to help us understand what it is we are clearing away. What has already died and is ready to be dead?

You are ready. Stand in your nobility. The wall is removed. You have done so much work. Step into the new part of your life. What newness is running toward you? What experience feels complete inside you? What do you wish to experience completely? Softly? Freely?

A sacred water blessing ceremony is given.

A poem within the journey arrives:

“Be fragranced by your love. Your inner smile is your regalia. All this time, your deepest longings have been the holiest of prayers.”

You are being ushered through a doorway of hope. This is just the beginning. Let yourself begin to wear this familiar newness. 

A journal prompt to respond to the guidance that came through your ceremony.

Stand in your victory.

Giantess: a poem.
