I am Emelie Manawa.
Manawa means the power of the heart in Maori. For me the power of the heart is Love and Love is my life.
I have a big heart and a big smile!
I’m born in Den Helder, a place in the Netherlands surrounded by the sea. The sea is what connects all the places I call home. The Netherlands, Avalon, Aotearoa (New Zealand). Though I live in Utrecht, the Netherlands at the moment, I am a global gypsy, traveling the world to connect with all my beautiful sisters and brothers worldwide.
I’m doing my priestess work from an early age, I will share my story with you here.
My whole life I feel this deep connection to the source of Love and Life, Call it God, Goddess, the Great Mystery, Source…
A big part of this connection to Love I find in connecting with nature and natures spiritual beings as my teachers. When I grew up I found out that not everybody was conscious about their spirit guides, not everybody was traveling back and forth dimensions, not everybody could see energy and not everybody could feel their ‘being part of’ nature. This was very confusing for me as a child.
when I grew up I tried to find the words and names for this way of experiencing the physical and spiritual world, but that was not so easy. Still I feel I didn’t find the right words for it yet. Is it shamanism? paganism? nature religion? I don’t know and it doesn’t really matter.
What matters is the experience of being connected, Love flowing through you, being one. The connection I experience I would love to share with others.
