So here we are, the first work day of my week. I have now been hit with 3 surprises, and some conflicting information. Always fun. Good thing my word for the day was Focus, and my card pull was The High Priestess. I put my focus word to good use. Closed out all the apps I was using to distract myself, grabbed some quartz to carry around and use as a focus object, and got to work making sure I was totally prepared for the rest of the week. Now I can make sure that the new student teachers I … Continue reading Tuesday as Monday…
Yes I know it is the trend, but I love the trend. No resolutions, although I have some goals (pretty typical ones), but I also have the word I will be keeping close to me. My word: LOOK You’re saying “What?! Heather you are crazy, how is that even a word to choose from?” Well I am here to tell you why it is what I think is going to be a great word for me. LOOK is so much more than just using your eyes. When we want someone to explain their feelings, or search for what is going … Continue reading My Word for 2020!
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?
Storms are amazing. Here in California we are experiencing some weird weather…snow in the elevations, and rain, lightening, and high winds down in the Valley a bit. This type of weather is perfect for bringing natural cleansing and energy into your magick and home. Wind and rain are amazing cleansers. I’ve been known to stand in the midddle of the yard in a big wind storm and accpet the wind into my body, sweeping out the negative and leaving me feeling refreshed and with room to fill my thoughts, my soul, my energy with positivity and balance. Rain will do … Continue reading Magick in the Air
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
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
Yes, that’s right, I have finally kicked the nasty creep and crud. That means we should be getting back to regularly scheduled blog posts and some interesting information. Today I wanted to discuss altars. What an altar is, what is can be used for and why you might have one, no matter your beliefs. Merriam-Webster.com defines an altar as: 1: a usually raised structure or place on which sacrifices are offered or incense is burned in worship —often used figuratively to describe a thing given great or undue precedence or value especially at the cost of something else sacrificed his … Continue reading I’m Better!
