Hello, and welcome to Rose Petals Witchery! My birth name is Sierra, and my Universe-given name is Rosaleihna (that’s a story for another post!)

I started out on the Pagan path many years ago, at the ripe age of 14 after experiencing years of disillusionment and discomfort in the religion I was born into. The first pagan book I ever picked up was Scott Cunningham’s Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner and I fell in love with a new path I could really make my own. I find that most people who start off into Paganism naturally fall into Wicca first – it has a lot of set rules and ways to do things, which one, we’re used to, and two, is really helpful when you don’t know all that much. Some people stay in Wicca, and some people use it as a foundation to grow into their own unique, personal practice. I am one of the latter.

My ancestry is heavily based in Scandinavia (as per my DNA, apparently I am over 64% Scandinavian – mostly from Sweden, but also peppered over Norway and Finland). During what was supposed to be a ‘normal’ sound healing event, I found myself sucked into a journey state unable to move my arms or legs (like having sleep paralysis). In that journey, I was taken ‘home’ and for the first time stood face to face with Odin. It was impressed upon me that they had been looking for me for a long time. The experience was a very warm, emotional family reunion. I felt that I had finally landed onto my path – with the Norse gods. I work very closely with the goddess of medicine, Eir, as well as Thor, though I regularly commune with Odin, Frigga, and Freyja. I am well versed in Northern folk magic and traditions, and some of my practice contains elements of both Heathenry and Asatru, but is not exclusively either.

As the years have gone on, I’ve learned a lot, from a plethora of different teachers spread across different fields. As a Gemini Sun, I look back on my birthdays and remember what I learned that year rather than the celebrations! I was attuned to Reiki I and II in 2018 at the age of 22. That same year I also completed my Bachelor’s degree in Biological Science from Purdue University. At 23, I earned my 200-HR Yoga Teacher Certification. 24 was a busier year – I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Metaphysical Science from the University of Sedona, I was attuned to Reiki Master status, I was certified as a sound and vibration therapist from Harmonic Waves Healing, I earned my 300-HR Yoga Teacher Certification, and to top it all off, I was certified as a Crystal Healer and Priestess after completing a yearlong program with one of my mentors and close family friend, Dr. Athena Perrakis of Sage Goddess. Suffice to say, I am a forever student and always looking to advance my practice. As of this post, I am currently working towards my Master’s degree in Metaphysical Science as well as an alchemy program offered by Sage Goddess.

My offerings to my community include metaphysical counseling, energy work, astrological analyses, and readings via rune casting, Tarot, and oracle.

As above, so below.
