Ep#52 Humanizing the Healer: The Path of Devotion with Taj Savitri
In this episode of Your Story Medicine, I welcome Taj Savitri. She is known as a “Business Priestess” for her ability to support future female leaders of our planet bridge into the physical concepts and ideas that cannot yet be understood by the human mind. Her gifts of psychic mediumship and understanding of the holographic nature of reality makes her work in leadership, business, and inner evolution truly unique. Her work has helped thousands of women step into a level of wealth that overflows into projects that help create a more loving and unified planet, anchored in service. She also serves as Mexican Medicine Woman, Conscious Investor of the “New World’, and an influential figure for Ascension. When she is not in High Priestess mode, she is developing “Mother Tree”, an intentional 22 Acre community on Maya land in Tulum, MX.
Main Topics Discussed:
- How to reclaim your ancestral lineage and the gifts that they possessed if you have no physical connection to those ancestors
- How to express or teach wound healing your own way without appropriating the customs of other cultures
- How to embrace your unique path of mastery and stop becoming a slave to other people’s truths.
What are you celebrating about yourself today?
Taj: I’m celebrating my ability to trust the timing of what’s taking place right now in my life. I’m working to just be okay about what I’ve accomplished today. I have a very big vision, but I know that transformations need to take place along the way. We can’t rush that. Who we become is the most important part of the process.
How would you describe your medicine?
Taj: I’m obsessed with wealth and abundance, but also its backbone: legacy and how we can give back to our community. And I’m focused on how we can take that big picture vision we all have and break it down into what we can do right now.
How has your ancestral lineage influenced your path today?
Taj: I was at Burning Man when I was called back to Tulum. I remember writing down my desire to open a healing center in Mexico. I met this woman when I was in the Amazon rainforest who introduced me to medicine people in Tulum who wanted to sell land to those who wanted to co-create and restore it back to its sacredness. My partner and I stayed in touch with her. But I was really driven to Tulum after my miscarriage, as a grief relief trip. We sat and watched an Ayahuasca ceremony and it was really, really healing. The next day, we went to look at a couple pieces of land. On one of them, these big, blue morpho butterflies appeared, which was a sign for me. I knew that was the land we would buy. That same day, I put down a deposit for the land. And since then, I’ve been struggling to discover why I was brought here to this land on this trip. I realized that it was to see a deep and real aspect of my lineage be healed, and for me to get to know about my ancestry. I had to let go of my shame of being half-Mexican by connecting with the local people here, the Mayans. A lot of my work here is connecting with the land and the water and restoring it all back to its sacredness. I come from a family of witches, but I never learned anything from them. Every single one of us from this lineage is gifted with telepathy. It’s just a matter of deciding whether or not we want to heal that wound and unlock those gifts.
How do you claim your identity as a healer and, by extension, how can you justify making money from your gifts?
Taj: I have a lot of views on using the term “healer” because we’re all healing for each other. We’re all conscious creators. We’re co-creating the perfect people, places, and experiences to show us who are becoming and taking responsibility for our own healing. Being a “healer” or a “shaman” or a “priestess” or whichever role you see for yourself is a devotion to living a life of depth and service and writing those initiations. My initiation was my miscarriage. I didn’t seek to become a priestess. But after that experience, I started seeing the ankh symbol everywhere. At the Ayahuasca ceremony I attended, my womb started bleeding again, but it was somatically healing and shaking at the same time. I actually asked permission from the spirits of the land of Tulum to buy land to co-create and bring it back to its sacredness. And it was during that time that I got an invitation to become a priestess. It was a seat within myself that was being offered to me. It was the higher aspects of myself that were communicating. It was an invitation to step forward into a deeper path of service and devotion to our Creator and the creation and restoration of our humanity, of our planet—of Gaia. I didn’t know what it all meant at the time, but I just accepted it. I may not have understood it, but it was a “yes” in my soul. You know in your body and in your being if you’re truly devoted to this path of service. That’s what it means to be a healer, a shaman, a priest, a priestess.
What are you doing to stay grounded and what is it that you’ve learned to release?
Taj: I realized how important my morning devotions and practices are. It’s easy to lose track of that because life happens and so much new shit happens every day. When so much is changing so quickly and so many paradigms and illusions are crumbling within ourselves and around us, it’s vital to connect to your truth every single morning. It may not even make sense mentally, but your body and your feelings will always communicate to you what your truth is.
What is a ritual or practice or words of wisdom that you want to leave people with?
Taj: We can start with being okay to feel our feelings. Our feelings hold an abundance of information about our truth, about our desires, about a lot of what we truly want, and what our next step is. The collective problem is that we become so distracted and fall into other people’s truths and other people’s ways. We need to be okay with how we’re feeling and allow a whole range of expressions to come through. Then we calibrate, come back to center, and notice the information we received from going deep into that expression without actually putting it on someone.
If you could envision yourself as a future ancestor, what is it that she would say to present-day you?
Taj: Follow the yeses—even (and especially) the ones that scare you.
Conclusion: Embrace your path of mastery by learning to trust yourself. Take note of what every emotion and experience teaches you about yourself, about others, and about the world. Instead of looking to hire coaches or mentors all the time, learn to trust the voice within yourself. And your best voice comes through when you’re at the zero point when you feel good and at home in your body.
Action Integration: Get to your zero point by solidifying your daily rituals and practices. We put ourselves in danger when we let our mind sway us to and fro according to the latest distraction or heightened emotion that leads us astray from our path. Reconnect to your truth every single day and everything will fall into place.
