So I had my surgery on January 24th and have been recovering since. My post-op appointment is on Friday the 4th, and I am looking foward to it as my pain is increasgin again for some reason. With that stated ahead of time, I forgot both a podcast and a blog last Sunday, so I am currently getting both up for last week, and planning this Sundays. The podcast will focus on the next cards in the study, The Empress and the Emperor. I am excited to be able to discuss these two cards as we move forward. Right now … Continue reading This Week!
Smudging – Sage Bundles One of the most common cleansing rituals is the use of a Sage bundle. It is used to clear away negative energies from people and places, to cleanse crystals, to get rid of lingering spirits, and … Continue reading Smudging
Summer Self-Confidence Ritual Well we are officially into the summer season, even with the strangeness of the world around us, we want to be out and about, feeling good and soaking up those rays of sunshine and that fresh summer air. However, if you are anything like me, the COVID-19 has hit your emotions and confidence. When we are surrounded by negative words and fear it feeds into our own energies. So what did I do? I turned to my favorite candle magick. I started with a Gold candle (I’ll tell you why in a minute), got out a piece … Continue reading Summer Self-Confidence Ritual
Hello! I am so excited to be here again. I am working on getting a schedule down. I don’t have it quite yet, but I promise it will be more regular, even if it is just a quick recipe for an upcoming Sabbat, or a happy Full Moon Blessings. Right now, I have just received the landscaping plans for my back yard and I can’t be more excited because there is going to be a fire pit/altar area in the back of it which means I will have some outdoor area that will be dedicated to practicing my way of … Continue reading New Space
Good Morning! I hope your day is as beautiful as mine is here in Northern California. What a great way to swing into the Summer Solstice season. How are you celebrating? Will you be joining a ritual? I have two, one this afternoon and one tomorrow. Today’s will be at the @sagedapp (this is a great community that has an incredible free offering) and tomorrow will be with my Sacred Mists community. Both are going to be fantastic. Different in many ways, and yet both fulfilling. I am excited to be starting with Summer Solstice as my renewal season. I … Continue reading Summer Solstice/Litha
I love it when I do multiple things, pull cards from multiple decks, or different kinds of decks and the whole world just connects itself to the energy. It has not been an easy start to the year 2020. With the word of the year being LOOK, and me taking the time to really look at what is around me, and within me, I realized how much work there is. That of course overwhelmed me, so I had to pull back and think a little about how to approach it all. Today was the first day I pulled any cards. … Continue reading When It All Connects
As we sit in our offices, on our couches, in our cars, at our desks, we define ourselves in different ways. These are often simple masks we wear to fit what it is others expect of us, or that we must project based on the situation. All totally understandable, but what happens when you begin to lose who you are to these masks? When you forget to take one mask off before donning another, and they blend to a point where you can’t get out from under either? These are scary questions, as I often feel this way. I have … Continue reading Who Are You?
I am excited to be back writing, growing, and feeling like me. It has been a long season as my children had to find themselves, causing heartache and growing pains alike. One of the things I had promised myself was after I was feeling stable, I would begin here. Once a week to start, as I am just getting myself back from being overly invested in a number of things and losing myself to them. I actually took a day off work two weeks ago to simply clean my room and bathroom. I was hoping to get the whole house … Continue reading New Adventures
We are so much more than our bodies. Yes, I said it. I know that it is difficult to believe, and hard to remember, but it is true. Our bodies carry our spirits and our spirits are here to learn. We are having a human experience, to grow within. These emotions, these experiences help us to become the people we want to be, will help to create the peace within that we are searching for. Sometimes, it is difficult. When your body hurts, when you have a headache, or something isn’t functioning right it is difficult to remember that we … Continue reading The Human Experience
What I see, how I see it, what is makes me feel/think, that is all within my control. There is nothing buy my own thoughts, feelings, and look on the world that tells me how to see something, except of course when I allow those things to jade me. We often want others to tell us what they see, or to let us know when we see something different. The problem with that is that it can skew our own perception, influencing us to see things that aren’t there, or that aren’t accurate. When we rely on our own instincts, … Continue reading I Control My Perspective
