Each year in September in Ancient Greece began the season of the sacred descent of Persephone to the Underworld, abandoning her mother in the Upper World and preparing the Earth for the season of winter. To honor this passage, initiates would walk the Iera Odos or Sacred Way from Kerameikos, the ancient Athenian cemetery in Athens, to Eleusis, the city of paradise and eternal life. This 11 mile walk was a pilgrimage through which the initiate would experience the deepest and most powerful transformation possible for a living human, and emerge on the other side whole, changed, purified, and prepared for eternal life after death.
Some part of this work is ours to do next year, and I have been called upon to create a perfume to honor our own descent and journey to paradise together. This is Part I of what will unfold in 2020. This perfume has to be created and shipped to you before the Fall Equinox, before Persephone leaves her mother, before she eats of the seeds of the fruit of life (pomegranate) that assure her ability to walk between the worlds eternally.
The notes in Sacred Way are Pomegranate, which represents the fruit of wisdom and the seeds Persephone consumed to bind her to Hades in the lower realm from Fall to Spring Equinox. Then, Mitti Attar and pure earth notes represent the lower world and shadow energies that surround and transform you from within. Belladonna in this blend represents the Greater Mysteries, while Cypress represents the Lesser Mysteries.
There is no label on this bottle because no image could possibly do justice to the energy.
If you are called to this blend, something in what is brewing within my heart is summoning you and I look forward to the unfolding of what is to come for both of us.
This listing is for (1) 10ml dropper bottle of the perfume that is going to open a doorway to your evolution. I hope you will choose to step through with me.
Amen, A’ho, So it is. Equinox and Descent Tidings, beloved, from my heart and hands to yours.
