Jessica’s Personal Story
Even though I considered myself a “sexually empowered woman” in my 20s, it always felt like something was missing. The first time I had sex with my college boyfriend, I asked myself, “Is that it?” “What’s the big deal?” “Why is this considered such a sin?”
It had taken months of deliberation before I finally “committed the act.” While growing up, I signed a petition of abstinence until marriage because that’s what “good girls did.” By having sex, I felt like I was giving myself away to someone. It hadn’t occurred to me that men didn’t feel the same way. They weren’t giving themselves to me, they were getting what they wanted. Once this realization dawned in my feminist mind, I made a vow to use men before they could use me.
The problem is, it didn’t quite work out that way. I felt obligated to please my partners, even if I wanted to say no. Somehow, my body became theirs. They could choose for me, as it was all about “making them happy.” If I didn’t, they would leave me, or get angry. I dared not ask for what I wanted. Doing so would be “selfish.” Often, they chose to focus on their own pleasure while leaving me dry.
Yet I continued to seek connection through sex. I felt simultaneously liberated by my desire and ashamed of it. Was something wrong with me for enjoying physical pleasure? Would I be punished for doing so? Did it make me a whore to have sex outside of marriage?
This shame resided deep within me until I looked more closely at how sex became associated with sin. It was a concept created by men who believed that god existed only “up above” and outside of earth. Women were turned from priestesses to prostitutes when men began to impose the belief – through extreme warfare and violence – that women were inferior beings who lacked an innate connection to the divine.
The ancient priestesses knew differently. By learning of them, I remembered the sacredness of my own body. My womb belongs to me and no other. They taught me how to root down into my Self and recognize my own holiness. How to connect with the divine through my senses. How to receive the pleasure that is my birthright.
A woman became a prostitute when her soul was ignored, and only her body was used. It has been incredibly liberating to fully unite my body and soul – here and now – in order to experience the holy communion of the priestess.
About Jessica Falcon:
Jessica offers an embodied, soulful approach to reclaiming your power. After seven years of practicing law, she left the legal profession to embark on a spiritual pilgrimage. Years of meditation and yoga had created too much of an internal disconnect between what she was doing and how she felt.
After traveling to sacred earth sites in honor of the feminine, Jessica settled down for awhile in Europe. Years of living up in the head left her disconnected from her own body. She taught herself French while accessing her soul’s wisdom through intuitive energetic practices. A tortuous relationship finally helped her see the truth of her own self-betrayal. No longer could Jessica deny her own power, her own sexuality, or her own voice.
Upon returning to the States, Jessica authored the book Prosecutor Prostitute Priestess, which weaves research of ancient civilizations and religious history with her own humbling journey. After years of official and unofficial study of the body, energy systems, healing modalities, nutrition and holistic health, she finally took a Subtle Yoga Teacher Training in 2018. Learn more here.
