Expectation vs. Reality

Expectation vs. Reality


Posted By on Jan 16, 2019

  Expectation is the subject of many spiritual conversations. Buddhists believe that having no expectations is the key to a joyful life. Some new age paths state that in order to manifest, we need to visualize how it’s going to be. Expectation is part of the human experience. To get excited or hopeful about something. To dream about how it will play out. To put faith in something yet unmanifested. In every interaction on...

I’ve always been the type of person who puts energy and effort into what I want. If i desire it, you bet I’m going to go after it. If it’s something that is worthwhile, I put my time, my energetic and financial resources into it. Makes sense right? That’s what we’ve been taught; we get what we put in, go after what you want, early bird gets the worm. Efforting, a term I heard from Esther Hicks, is when...

  The Winter Solstice beckons us deeper into the shadows. As the year draws to a close, we are called into the darkness, both in the external world as the days grow shorter, and within as we look towards all that was in the past year. Here we symbolically burn the old and embrace the beginnings that are unfolding as we dream of what we wish to manifest in the year to come. Death claims the husk of what was as we open to the...

Fighting Fair


Posted By on Nov 15, 2018

  I’ve never been very good at arguments. My Aries heart flares passionately, my Virgo Moon screams “build up the walls”, and my Libra rising coaxes me into talking it out, attempting to find a solution. Warrior, armed guard, and diplomat rolled into one. I get pulled in a million different directions all at once, my words falter and nothing makes any sense. It’s usually a mess. As a writer I’ve...

The Wisdom of the Witch

The Wisdom of the Witch


Posted By on Nov 13, 2018

  Where I grew up, Witch was a bad word. Within the deeply rooted traditions of the church, it was not a word one should associate themselves with. From the reactions of most of the people in my family, the clergy or those I became romantically entangled, it seemed distasteful, like the F word or swallowing something bitter. I didn’t understand. Witches were connected to the land, worked with plants, herbs, the weather and...

Gaslighting

Gaslighting


Posted By on Oct 30, 2018

What is gaslighting? Gaslighting at its center focus is emotional abuse that erodes the ability to make decisions, feel self esteem or self worth, feel confident or capable. It shifts the balance of power in a relationship to the one doing the gaslighting. This emotional manipulation can make you question your sanity. In a variety of ways and patterns the manipulator makes the target feel overly sensitive, paranoid, crazy, unbalanced,...

The Dog Days of Summer

The Dog Days of Summer


Posted By on Sep 27, 2018

  When we think of Summer, we think of warm, neverending days filled with fun. Laughing in the sunshine, endless moonlit nights and vacation time. Maybe take some time off and relax. I thought this Summer was going to be a rejuvenating time filled with adventure and possibility. Maybe finally finish the books I keep working on or take a trip or two. It did not go as I planned at all. In the Spring, one of my dogs Daisy had begun...

Autumn is a time for celebrating abundance. Waves of amber grain flow freely in the fields awaiting harvest. Ripe fruit hangs heavy on tree branches. The hot Summer sunlight fades and the warm days turn cool as Fall creeps in. The days grow shorter and magic fills the air, spiced with the transformation that Autumn always brings. As the Wheel of the Year spins the seasons, we come to the Autumn Equinox on September 21/22 in the...

  What we believe is a potent spell that becomes our reality. We are powerful creators in the world that surrounds us and what we know as truth shapes things profoundly. We are constantly adding fuel to these spells with out thoughts, our words and our choices. Everything feeds their flames. I hear people say that they don’t deserve things like love, or happiness or even a better job. The truth is there is nothing you need...

  We have been in the midst of very intense energy over the last few months. During this powerful time of great change, we are looking to the areas of our conditioning and belief that continue to hold us back and shape what we envision for the future. This is calling to what we have been taught from our family and society in a big way. We are facing what we have been trained to believe. So many things are rising to our eyes...

Creating Crystal Grids

Creating Crystal Grids


Posted By on Jul 2, 2018

Crystals are powerful allies that we can program with our wishes and intentions using them to heal, transform, draw, and manifest in our lives. Crystal grids are fun and easy to create. I’m a huge fan of creating crystal grids to amplify and supercharge the energy of crystals and really focus and combine their specific vibration and talents. It’s powerful to be able to team up the crystal energy and have them collaborate...
