Bruja Alikchihoo's Profile...
Let me tell you a little about me. I am called Bruja. That is a name/title gifted me by my spiritual mentor many years ago. My last name, Alikchihoo, is pronounced Ah - lick - she - hoe, and it comes from two Chickasaw words: Aliktce - which means healer, and ihoo-himita, which means woman. The name was chosen in 1995 when I felt the need to redefine who I was after having been someone's daughter, and then someone's wife for way too many years.
I'm an elder in the pagan community, I identify as lesbian but am currently not in a relationship and in fact, have been celibate for many years. I am the proud mother of 2 gorgeous women, age 43 and 41, and grandmother of three sweet little boys.
I was raised a fundamentalist Christian, but left the church at the age of 34 when the Goddess, furious with my silliness, made herself known to me in a very dramatic and unforgettable way. I've never looked back.
I've been involved in the Dianic tradition for 28 years, having studied with a teacher who trained in the Circle of Aradia and Moon Birch Grove in southern California, so I guess you could say that I'm a second or third-generation student of both Z Budapest and Ruth Barrett. I have been co-facilitator/co-priestess for 2 local Dianic teaching circles (Moon Mysteries: A Circle of Women, and Bloodfire's Circle of Lilith) , from 1993 to 2015. Our core group of 13 women was very active and involved in community issues, from creating food drives, to doing volunteer work for battered women's shelters and children's homes, to participating in ecology clean-up days and anti-war protests.
I have participated in both the Denver metro Pagan community, and national Pagan one in several ways. . facilitating song and chant workshops, teaching RitualCraft; Dianic Wicca 101; The Five Blood Mysteries; Incense, Oil and Herbcrafting; Divination. I've been a guest speaker at Wings Metaphysical Bookstore, co-facilitated three large Dianic community rituals, and have been involved in Denver's Grand Coven as a frequent volunteer..
My practice now is more focused on helping other womyn help themselves, from creating healing or empowerment rituals for their own use, to helping them see the broader application of their magickal acts for their lives and the lives of their families and communities. My primary personal focus right now is expanding my horizons - learning how I fit into the universe and about the different ways I can manifest Goddess and let her work through me to accomplish change.
I recently retired from the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing. I have a small business making Goddess rosaries, Chaplets and bracelets, head-dresses, Goddess-themed Water Bottle Holders, Pagan-themed Badge Reels and matching Lanyards, and specialty custom-made "Totem" or "Intention" dolls. I also create oils, incenses and ritual bath items, and am refining the use of sacred herb for healing (in edibles, salves, and lotions) .
