Somehow I cannot seem to get well. While it is just a little head cold this time, it is once again slowing me down. I am so glad I have my #highperformaceplanner from #brendanbruchard so that I can at least stay on track at work, and track what isn’t getting done so that I can get it done once I feel better. We are getting to the end of the semester here, so finals and then grading are going to be my priority for the next week so that at least the job I’m paid for is done. I am … Continue reading Sick Again…
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
I haven’t pulled a card yet for today. I’m going to…and I’ll add it to the post before I publish. I wanted to just get a few thoughts down before I did anything else. It has not been easy. It has also only been a few days, even though we knew about 12 hours before the real decline that it was coming. I was able to process and be calm, call on the spirits to help him cross peacefully, and to bring healing energy to my husband and I and the house before it even happened. Even with my own … Continue reading Healing is a Process
I have this amazing friend, her name is Lady Lilyth. She is always introducing me to new ideas, deities, and things. She recently introduced me to The Universe Has Your Back, a deck of intention cards from Hay House (Find Gabrielle Bernstein’s stuff here). Well…they are more like reminder cards, but she had this great idea of turning each card that she drew into an intention. I loved it so much, that as I start this deck, I am going to borrow her idea. As I go through the last weekend in 2018 I am realizing that I didn’t follow … Continue reading End of the Year Reflections…
Every day is a New Day and a New Start. Never let yourself get so far down that you forget that the chance to start again, with a different attitude, even if it is to the same place, is literally coming in the morning. This is something I have been reminding myself every day for the past few months. Even as I pull tarot cards, sit at the altar, and continue on my studies at Sacred Mists, I find myself needing the reminder that it isn’t this way everyday. I make myself feel better by applying for jobs I want, … Continue reading A New Day, A New Start
As Fire is both destructive and creative it its nature, it is easy to use, but must be treated with respect. The qualities most often associated with Fire Magick are: Brightness, Thinness and Motion. It is considered to be continuously Active, with a mode of On all the time. From the beginning fire has been used to warm our homes, cook our food, ward off darkness, to light our path both from man-made and the sun and of course it fuels the passions within. We use it in modern times to bring us closer together, to sit within the warmth … Continue reading Fire Magick
Today I wanted to share a little more about some of the things I do on a daily basis (or as close as possible) regarding my beliefs and practices. However, I realized that before I delved into that perhaps a discussion and personal breakdown of the concepts out there was in order. Often the three words above are used synonymously. While most of us who live the life understand those outside don’t know the difference, there are those who become highly indignant or offended when someone refers to them as one of the others. While I am not one of … Continue reading Pagan, Wiccan or Witch???
