EPISODE 004 // SHIFTING THE PARADIGM THROUGH SACRED SISTARHOOD
In this episode of Sovereign Goddess, Sabrina Riccio embarks on a multi-dimensional journey with Spiritual Business Advisor Rachael Webb. We are in a time and age where spiritual activism is more important than ever before. As we witness history in the making with events like Standing Rock and the #NODAPL movement, we are called to gather the troops and come together in unity. Rachael and Sabrina get real vulnerable in this episode as they share their rising of the phoenix stories. The challenges and opportunities that have recently risen have been the playing ground for these goddesses to harness their magic to be the alchemist and transmute what's been thrown at them in recent weeks. They are dedicated to heal and overcome the energies that have been carried from previous lifetimes. Both of these sovereign goddesses are stepping into the limelight as sacred rebels, sharing their truth unapologetically.
IN THIS EPISODE WE TALK ABOUT...
↠ honoring Standing Rock with the Beauty way
↠ understanding the blessings that have come with the US election results
↠ the power of collaboration + coming out of the magic closet
↠ the importance of creating a dedicated sacred space in your home
↠ shifting our relationship with social media, especially with Instagram
This episode is jam packed with juicy insights including out-of-this-world conversation topics pertaining to past lives, psychedelics, Standing Rock, Burning Man, healing sisterhood relationships from previous lives, anchoring in a Unity Consciousness known as the Christ Consciousness or 5d, light language, elemental relationships, and so much more. This conversation could go on for hours. Hearing this episode helped me recommit to my life's mission and purpose to go out in the world and create something real and authentic. Both Rachael and I recognize the truth - we can use our voices and knowledge to go out into the world and create something beautiful, unique, and impactful. We recognize that we are here to support one another and humanity as we all awaken to our fullest potential. Rachael is here to honor the sacred rebel within each of us. Her commitment and her self-expression has gifted so many, including myself, the permission to go out into the world and let our magic out! As we come together, we will move mountains and create a postive impact not just in the world, but for all existence.

Warm Lemon water + Dream journaling + writing in my Five Minute Journal each morning, and at night my Hue lights change colors with the time, so I know when to transition from work to play and get ready for bed.
WHY DO YOU FEEL THERE IS A RISE OF SACRED REBELS STEPPING UP AND COMING OUT OF THE SPIRITUAL CLOSET?
I feel there are more and more sacred rebels coming out of the magic closet because we’ve past the marker (the decision point for Earth) of 2012. We didn’t annihilate each other and destroy the Earth, so now it’s game on. The time has come! We have stayed hidden “in the closet” for some time now, waiting for the energy to shift. Over the years (I’m talking lifetimes) we’ve had to hide because the world wasn’t ready for our magic. We were persecuted and even killed in some situations for being the intuitive, empathic, magical people that we are. However, once we crossed the end of 2012, the energy shifted. There’s a lot more to it (re: quantum physics and the area of space our solar system is moving into), but in essence, people are tired of the old ways, and are finally ready to open up to something different! These are the times we have been waiting for! We have been preparing for this time for all of our past lifetimes, and now there is no more practice, there is only application. We are clear in our mission, and we can see the work there is to be done, and we are EXCITED because we are no longer doing the work alone!
WHY IS SISTARHOOD MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER BEFORE?
The healing of the deep rifts that were created in the sisterhood during the times of the witch trials left a deep deep wound in our psyches as women. The power of the Divine Feminine has been fragmented for far too long. But what I'm talking about specifically is the Magical Sisterhood - the Sacred Council of the High Priestesses, and the Covens of Witches. Together we are healing from the trauma of the witch trials. So many of us still feel the intensity of past lives in which we were burned, stoned, hung, or otherwise persecuted for letting our magic out.
The real focus of this persecution wasn't just on the magic, but on the power of the Sisterhood itself. The fear crept in and began to fray the fabric that bound us together. Fear, jealousy, and resentment among women spread like wildfire. If one woman thought that another woman looked at her husband in the wrong way, all she had to do was say the right thing to the right person, and that woman wouldn't be a problem anymore…
They say united we stand divided we fall, and this was especially true for the power of the Magical Sisterhood during this time. Divided we were, and fall we did.
That is why it is essential for us to come together again. To heal these wounds of separation that we were forced to create within the sisterhood out of survival. Now we are moving into a time of thriving instead of surviving - now we get to CHOOSE how to relate to one another, and we are choosing love and sisterhood as opposed to fear and separation. AND there are still sometimes when the old energies come up and we get triggered into jealousy, comparison, and self-judgement. This is our work, for ourselves and our sisters. If we can navigate through these murky waters….. I don’t know exactly what it will look like but it will be the RISE of the Goddess in all of us!
WHAT DOES BEING A GODDESS MEAN TO YOU?
Walking the path of the Beauty Way. Doing, living, working, creating and destroying all in beauty. Being sovereign in the way in which I live my live and the choices I make. Considering all the options. Considering the environmental impact of my choices. Considering the social impact of my choices. Considering my community as I make decisions that in the past I would have thought only affected me. Considering that I am part of the whole, and that all of the parts of the whole are part of me, and making empowering decisions for all of us. Watching how I speak to myself and others. Choosing love over fear as often as I can. Choosing to respond with thoughtfulness and compassion, instead of reacting from survival. Walking my edges. Pushing myself in my creative expression in the way I dress, the way I speak, how I design my website and my courses, and what/how I choose to share on Instagram. Letting my magic out more and more everyday. Being a living example that there is another way of being than we were taught in school or through the media. Being a living example that magic is real and miracles happen everyday.
HOW DO YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE AS A SOVEREIGN AQUARIAN WOMAN DURING THIS POWERFUL TIME?
I really try to listen to the energy of each day. I pay attention to the astrology and the frequency in the air. I've learned not to push things, and not to say yes when I really mean no. I really try to witness myself and be aware of the unconscious motivating factors in my life. I always try to ask myself why am I doing this? Is this in alignment with what I want my day to look like / the goals I'm trying to accomplish / the way I want to be living / the kind of example I want to share with others? We are not separate from one another, so even the thoughts you think in your head are not said in silence. I know I heard this for YEARS, but now I really get it, and have SEEN the repercussions of thinking poorly about someone and how that manifests back as a mirror in my own life.
And I'm not kidding about doing things with beauty! That totally makes me thrive! When you make everything beautiful around you, you are exercising your creative power and therefore the Creator inside you - so you are allowing more life force, source energy, to flow through you, which always brings more abundance! So bring your own creative flair to ALL you do. Here, I'll tell you a secret: when you see someone else who is doing/wearing something that is just AMAZING - it's not about their handbag, the designer of their sweater, or the content on their website - what you are sensing is ENERGETIC RESONANCE. You are picking up on the energetic alignment of their spirit with their expression. That's why copying someone never looks or feels as good as the original - because you are trying to funnel their interpretation of Source Energy into your expression - so there's dissonance! But when you do you - when you access your OWN creativity, and do things your OWN way - even if it feels CRAZY because no one else is doing it... THAT is when you've struck gold. That is when you are THRIVING because you are a direct and clear channel for cosmic intelligence to flow through you! And everyone will be asking you what you're doing, where you got that _____ and how you did _________- so when this starts happening, just smile to yourself and remember your creative journey. ;)
