About


Snake & Wild Roots is an Australian based business dedicated in providing high quality authentic folk magic and witchcraft products and supplies along with unique earth inspired art works and weaves, from the magic of my ancestors. This is my ancestral work. I proudly come from a Romani and mixed Asian heritage. The focus is on creating an earth conscious and creative community through a range of teachings and services to reclaim and heal your ancestral roots. The primary focus is to support ancestral healing, self expression and embrace individuality. With 29 years of walking the path of witch, I have crafted my work with clarity and accuracy and driven to share it with as many who are open to receive it. 

 

 

That's my business statement above from me to you.

 

 And here's a little more...

Everything that is meaningful has lost it's importance in the white wash of marketing and the oppression of patriarchy. Our earth is seen as a commodity not as a living being. The magic and mystery of life, the depth of what love really is seems to be what many people are searching for and trying to understand. The oppression is growing. It feels like suffocation and a yearning for genuine connection with both people and land. 

The only way to breathe and create profound change through this suffocation is to stand in what's real. Mystery is real, and where there's mystery, there's magic. Earth is real. Breathe and take in both, let it be your first step to returning home. 

Come back to your roots

 

My work is dedicated to our Mother the earth and my beloved ancestors. I am here to support the wildness of the earth. 

 

With my love always,

Witch to witch

I am an ancestral shamanic witch. I primarily support and assist BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of colour) & BIPOC LGBTQIA+ to enter and navigate the mystery, the wild loving darkness. I am willing to work with non BIPOC loves if they are committed to live and action the ongoing unthreading of white supremacy and internalised racial stereotypes. It is preferable to contact me and begin with discussion via email and have connection via social media so I can get to know you further. 

I am devoted to our beloved Mother Earth and I'm a traditional ancestral healer and shamanic practitioner, and I share this:

My work is powerful, deep and transformative, it’s not for everyone. I’ve been teaching and guiding people how to reclaim their power and heal for 22 years, and children for 17 years. I believe it’s one of the many things I am here to do. I began walking the feminine mysteries when I was 19, and this is where I really started to ask questions no one around me would. Please understand, feminine mysteries is stripped down to no gender when it's truly lived and walked in it's depth. The mystery isn't gendered, that is one thing "feminine empowered leadership' does not consider, nor offer the space to grow past to live the essence of true mystery. 

When it came to spiritual teachings and practices, I watched people take on blindly what they were taught, and I could not, because I knew inside myself what was truth and what was not. Having courage to ask questions in a field that wants to be fixated on beliefs with hidden emotional wounding driving it, instead of living knowing that is felt in the bones of who we really are. Beliefs are ideas with no proof they are real. Knowing is truth, wisdom and clarity. We need to challenge the delusion too many are choosing to live instead of truly transforming and evolving. I’ve gone much deeper than most, and trust me when I say there’s fuck all fluff here. My work is an all inclusive space for BIPOC (black indigenous people of colour) of all genders and will consider working with selective non BIPOC people. One on one ancestral work sessions once a month are available to cis white non bipoc people if they are committed to unthread white supremacy and to truly de-colonise. 

I work with people on the edge of enough, or on the edge of finally choosing their real self. I work with those wanting to deepen their relationship with self and earth with the primary focus of reclaiming their ancestral roots. I work with those who want to confront their own personal shit head on. I work with people that are not afraid of the truth, and not afraid to live it. I work with witches that are not afraid to be liberated and seen. I work with people who want to transform over and over again. I work with loves that choose to live with integrity and self respect.

My work is honest, and not a lot of people are ready for truth and honesty.

If you feel the pull to work together I give you truth, honesty and support to empower and assist you to navigate through the mysterious world of you, so you can walk your knowing and fuck off oppression once and for all. I will teach you to make friends with fear, and teach you to navigate and understand your emotional body which holds the patterns of self sabotage and assist you to find the authenticity that you are here to live. That is found when you reclaim your ancestral roots. I will support you to rip the chains off and be the person you are… nothing less will be given. I teach what I live.

I offer a decolonised way of healing, one that is inclusive to all earth and your own personal unique life experiences. I am a qualified counsellor, mental health art therapist and permaculturist with further focused study on psychology, psychotherapy and somatic therapy but I’m not here to use these qualifications in the way I’ve been taught (besides permaculture). I am here to liberate and show you how to return home, and although these qualifications have taught me some things, it comes nowhere near to what I have learned through my own knowing as a shamanic practitioner, the clarity and wisdom from my ancestral practices and my strong connection to spirit and earth. This gives my work the depth and uniqueness that many seek but many cannot put into words. 

I am a person of colour who remembers. Come to me with no expectation of who you think I am and a fuck tonne of respect and integrity for all life or don't approach me at all.


Decolonise and fuck the patriarchy, it's killing us all.

 

With love,

Astara Lin Nguon
