So the great thing about where I work is that we have these random weeks off. Not just the standard school breaks at the holidays, but weeks in the middle of February, which is awesome! This past week my husband and I went to New Orleans. We got there on a Saturday early afternoon and left Thursday late. This meant that we got to the enjoy the Mardi Gras spirit and early parades without the craziness of all the 20 somethings during actual Mardi Gras weekend. It was amazing. I have never been, so we literally spend 5 days in … Continue reading Vacation was fabulous!
Listen. So today’s Word of the Day is Outlets. That is in reference to doing things outside of what causes you stress! That’s right, I was told by the Universe to go out and be creative; to allow those things that are building up inside of me to flow freely and in the process get better at something, or create something, or simply move so that th energy isn’t staying pent up. What perfect timing as the extra assignment I got is not going well, and causing extreme stress. So what is it I want to do today? Well I … Continue reading The Universe is Speaking…
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
That is today’s message and daily intention. The message comes from the Oracle of the DragonFae and became a perfect daily intention for a Friday before a 4 day weekend. As we are settling into our morning here, and my 1st period class is almost done until next Wednesday, I decided to reflect on the message of the card I pulled today. Apalala – You are a peaceful being. The DragonFae Apalala and Buddha learned much from one another, including where to focus their energy. Today that message is meant to show us that it is making the peaceful moments … Continue reading You Are A Peaceful Being!
Brigid has lit the way for us to begin the lighted season of our year. What a wonderful time this will. As we say goodbye to Herne for the moment, and allow him the rest he so deserves, and the candles are lit to guide the light back into the world, we are all getting ready to let go of the shadows and step into the light. If you walk a pagan/Wiccan path then today is the day to bless your candles for the year. The time to give them the energy of the beginning of the light time and … Continue reading Blessed Imbolc….Blessed Candlemas
Today was the first day back to the real job, no students yet, but here I am, fixing up the classroom and getting ready. I teach at a school that is on a 4×4 block, meaning I have all new kids tomorrow, and new classes. So daunting to have two first days in a school year, but I’ve doing this for 7 years now, and getting used to the daunting is old hat. What I am also used to is the apathy and blah I feel when it is time, after the break, to come back. This has, unfortunately led … Continue reading Reminders…already
Often times we are told how we should live, where we should work, what is right for us, without anyone checking in on what it is we want. We allow others to create the reality that we live in, with little or no input from us. This is often the case with those who follow a “different” path in religion or beliefs. It is difficult when one does not “conform” to the holidays or the calendars of the societal norm. As we approach the season of Yule, I am often reminded of how intolerant and selfish others are. They focus … Continue reading Create Your Own Reality…and then live it
