Holy Whore


I am the One who is the Holy Whore
I am the Sacred Prostitute
I am the One who is called many names

I am Inanna
I am Ishtar
I am Astarte
I am Isis I am Venus
I am the Magdalene and the Madonna
I am Lilith I am Eve

I am the daughter of Hieros Gamos
I am the Rose of Sharon
I am the Radiant Star

I give you access to the Soul through the senses of the body
I give you the Twin Flame of Spiritual Force and Sexual Joy
I give you sex as prayer

Like the rose I am sweetest when fully opened to my spiritual, sexual, creative core

I want you to embrace the Divine Feminine, the Inner Sanctum, the Goddess Within
I want you to honour your Holy Spirit
I want you to bare witness to the Secret Joys and Silent Wisdom of a vulnerable heart center
I want you to be a guardian and an inspiration for the poetic soul

You will remember when you engage in honourable interactions of ecstatic intimacy with the Anointed One

You will remember when the pomegranate seed between your tooth and tongue bursts open and that tart juice trickles across your lips and is met with a kiss from the Divine

As spiritual beings having a human experience, physicality is part of the divine. Wonderfully worded and captivatingly captured.
