Good afternoon beloved community members :)

Thank you all for the most amazing community experience and for sharing your hearts with both my Sister Noa and I .x

Coming to you all with an open, humbled heart. Calling in honesty and trust to help me find two items that I seemed to have lost at the Solstice Gathering.

The first item is the patterned piece of material I use as a throw seen in this photo and a pair of maroon leather sandals (there are angels imprinted in the leather on the inside sole of the shoes)

Both of these items were gifted to me by my grandmother - Somehow I have misplaced them which really rips my heart out because I am generally so "Holy" about them both- Not sure how this happened-

If anyone has seen these items, picked them up and looking after them for me - I am truly and deeply grateful and will take better care of them once found - I promise!

Thank you from my heart to yours

Thank you Vincent. Looking forward to speaking to you on Thursday afternoon.

I have a DREAM ... YOU are in it

Wow are we really in the last six months of this year?

I am in the mystery
My life is changing
Love is my master

I used to be the Wonder Woman
Of Planning
Now it’s seems my Strength is
Surrendering

Yes I am strong
But now true power lies within
Vulnerability

Like many I am
Reinventing myself
Dreaming a new life
Calling in more love

Manifestations and Collaborations
Twin flames and soul mates
Sisters and bothers
Conscious Community

This month I land and plan what lies ahead
It's exciting and I can't wait to share more

I will share my Conscious Parenting Course from Havoc to Harmony at Home with the World and finally finish my book

https://www.mariettecarstens.com/online-course

I want to rewild and ride on a motorbike in October
Losing my mind and coming to my senses

I want to meet my sisters at the Red Tent gathering and howl at the moon, celebrating every sacred stage of the Feminine in October

We will celebrate the Spring Equinox with Gatherin Eden as a tribe in September, with Anja Bock and Dion Viljoen

We will host another womens retreat and come full circle with Elemental Wisdom Goddess Retreat, tapping deeper into the elemental power of the land to call on the feminine in Nov here at Well-Being Sanctuary with Kat Zijl and Selah Joy

I am deeply grateful and excited to be a part of and support the incredible work of IYX Africa with Q Seven Beckett as they change the lives of youth and communities ... Pls follow and support them www.iyxafrica.com

We will camp and glamp and dance and feast and swim in the lake again at Summer Solstice in December.

Bookings for your Glamping experience early is essential for all the festivals.

We will also hold a conscious gathering space till the new year ... For those of us who want to step into 2023 fully recharged and reconnected to the land, self and each other.

Thank you to everyone that shows me so much love and support my dreams.

Much more is to come in 2023... Exciting new life changing Offerings, Retreats and Festivals

Watch this space ... It's unfolding beautifully and magically

I have cleared out the past, old patterns and programs,
No more self limiting beliefs
Anything and everything is possible

This field is open
Powerful

Let's create a new reality
Consciously

I feel myself falling

… into the Mystery of the Feminine

They say it's a rising tide

That it's the end of the divide
The Split that we all suffered

Are we good or bad?
Do we say Yes or No?
Do we Please or Resist?
Do we Submit or Rebel?
Do we Loose or Protect our Self?

The Feminine Longs to Connect, Surrender and Trust

Before, due to the split, we made longing "bad", it’s a NEED, and being "needy" is a weakness we were told

That pushed many of us into exaggerated Masculine power
To be fiercely independent

We are So blessed to be experiencing the coming into balance of this polarity

How I long for every woman on earth to experience this marriage within herself !!!!!

It’s our birth right
It’s who we are

Through the Moon and Cycles we are Connected
In Circles and Silence we sit Holding each other

Love and Feminine Light

Contact me to enquire or sign up for the next Elemental Goddess Retreat in October and come

FULL CIRCLE

Self care and self love

The Well-Being Sanctuary is the perfect place to recharge and retune yourself back to the essence of who you are.

I have a confession to make
Sometimes.... I roll my eyes

At the constant talk
about self love and care
It is not about talking
It's about walking

If we are talking about it
It's still part of the plan
The result is in the Future
To remedy the Past
It's a Projection of Perfection

Self care For me
Is about focusing
On what is in front of me
It's about Showing up with
Presence in the Present

And its about listening
To the whispers of my body
Long before it starts to scream

It's about my 100% rule
Do what you are doing 100%
Play, work, or rest 100%

Basic self care is our access point to our intuition and nurtures our life force

We are always plugged into the Source of all Creation
If we are out of balance
We should Find the Source of that

What external source of energy are we plugged into?
Why? Is there a need, here?

Follow the Compass of health...
North - Nutrition
East - Exercise
West - Water & a detox life style
South - Sleep & Sacred Sexuality

And here are some of my other "rules" to access, build, preserve and maintain my energy

STOP being who you are not
Never stop playing
Pleasure is your birthright
Happiness are in the small things
Clarity is the new high
Create safety - it is sexy
Return to Mother Nature

Love and Light

During the Elemental Wisdom Goddess Retreat we reconnected with all the Elements, dropping into Fire as such a primal force.

We need Heat. From the beginning of time, it was clear… fire means survival.

Nothing is more beautiful than looking and losing yourself in the Flames.

Fire can save lives, or destroy it. When it Burns, it Hurts and it’s an Element that we respect.

When Fire and Desire hold hands the Spark Ignites Passion.

Fire can dance and jump and we can dance and jump with it, like we did with Selah Joy during the fire workshop and play.

Fire has a voice…popping, crackling, roaring or rushing and it helps us find our own voices.

It’s cleanses and discharges, helping us let go of what no longer serves us, while powerfully calling in what we yearn to manifest.

Full moon and Fire … yes!

During the Elemental Wisdom Goddess Retreat we opened with Cacao and the Earth lodge as Sacred Ceremonies on the first day.

Both the plant medicine Cacao and the sweat lodge are integral parts of Native South and North American communities and cultures.

The cacao opened our hearts to the experience and we bonded with each other in our powerful sisterhood. We released what no longer serves us and called in our deepest desires and manifesting power.

For me it was like coming full circle. Sitting inside the lodge and looking up in deep reverence at the blankets separating us from the sky. I have been called to prepare for a sweat lodge at Well-Being Sanctuary before anything else. I bought blankets for a lodge six months before I was called to do my first sweat over a year ago.

We followed the guidelines and songs for a deeply spiritual experience, tapping into the wisdom of these ancient medicines.

We gratefully welcomed each grandmother and grandfather stone at the center of the sacred geometrical ceremonial space. Being on Earth from before the beginning of time, they know it all. The union of stone and fire is supported by the trees, or standing ones, as they give themselves to this sacred ceremony in the fire. There is balance in this blessed union between the elements, trees and stones as they are the doctors delivering the medicine through the songs of our open hearts.

During each round we are opening the doors to healing with our heartfelt intentions, calls, cries and prayers . We breathe deeply and with every pour of water on the stones, the grandmothers and fathers speak to us and imbue us with their wisdom. The steam cleanses us and we take their wisdom into our lungs.

The sound of each element in and outside the lodge is medicinal, as it penetrates each cell and wash away every negative thought or fear.

We hear the fire speak and see our futures in the glowing of the stones, we drip water back into the earth. We give up the silly notion of control or staying clean and surrender to the hum of the humid earth.

Thank you Kat Zijl for a beautiful intentional hold of these sacred ceremonies and Selah Joy for your presence and clarity as you both powerfully weaved this dream into reality.

DM me if you have any questions regarding our next upcoming Elemental Wisdom Goddess Retreat in October. Send your WhatsApp number to +27 66 25 68468 to receive further notifications

We encourage you to do the experience as a pair
Mother and daughter ( 13 years and older)
Sisters, soul-sisters or single sisters … there is magic in sharing this experience as women, even when we are initially starting off feeling like “strangers”

We mirror each other very powerfully

The Elemental Wisdom Goddess Retreat at the Well-Being Sanctuary this weekend was NOT a Retreat …

it was a NEW BEGINNING

I want to thank the women who journeyed so deep with the feminine in themselves, each other and the elements.

We walked the Earth, we danced with Fire, we breathed Air and we flowed with Water. We were deeply supported by Mother Nature. Only our Bell-Tent canvas separated us at night from the Milky Way as it lit up the sky.

The New Moon perfectly synced with our NEW BEGINNING.

We are all fundamentally changed and for ever bonded.

We dream weaved our deepest desires into a manifestation phase. We tapped into the subconscious and went into the layers of being beyond mind where our true potential and healing abilities live.

I feel beyond grateful, nourished, loved and appreciated. Words cannot explain the beauty we experienced this weekend. Over time the gifts will continue to unfold and I will try my best to share what we tried to capture. But in truth… you had to be here… to experience the magic

Join us next time … please… it is truly an unforgettable Reset and Recharge and Retunement

Love and light

At the Well-Being Sanctuary you can truly experience the healing energy of horses and what it feels like to connect human soul to animal spirit.

21/12/21 Summer Solstice -

That quiver you felt …
was the tectonic plates of Mother Gaia shift as this tribe of real people, free humans, critical thinkers and dream weavers came together for 14 days to honor our true nature, celebrate love and deepen in connection to each other and the Earth.
Earth's lithosphere, which is the rigid outermost shell of a planet, upper crust or upper mantle is broken into seven or eight major plates. The relative movement of the plates typically ranges from zero to 10 cm annually, but on 21/12/21 we as a tribe tapped into the unified field, our hearts beating as one.

Thank you to each and every soul that gave all of themselves. Thank you for your precious prayers and potent presence on the land.

Love and Light
