As a Witch, it is my understanding and belief that I am in control of the energies of myself, both body and spirit, and I am aware of the energies that exist within my environment; whether that environment is the natural world or that which has been constructed by human hands. I recognize that I am attuned and aligned with these free-flowing and ever-shifting energies and it is because of this knowing and understanding, that I do not perceive myself as a victim of anyone or anything. If I find that I am injured or harmed by someone or something then it is because I have aligned myself with that
The moon emits a dark
Light. Bright stars twinkle
In silent contemplation, wisdom
From the ancient
Voice of the Dark Mother.
Black feathers flutter across
A field drenched in sorrow.
Birds peck the eyes
Of the recently fallen
A thoughtform is a nonphysical entity that resides on the mental and astral planes of existence. It is created by our thoughts and is fueled by our focused emotions. We are made of energy and every thought we have generates a vibration within our aura. This thought takes form assuming a color and density that can be seen by clairvoyants. Anger, hate, greed, and thoughts that align with fear create thoughtforms that are denser, while thoughts of joy, love, charity, and those that align with love create thoughtforms that are lighter. A Witch that has created denser thoughtforms, whether intentionally or unintentionally, and spends their energy focusing and contemplating these thoughts will “feed” the
I have been having very profound visions and experiences in the other realms … there is great change and transformation taking place within me and within my Craft. Some of the experiences have been intriguing while others have been confusing with the most recent one is beyond words … I cannot accurately describe with my vocabulary what I experienced … an experience that was both fascinating and terrifying; an experience I begged the gods to end, but when they ignored my pleas for release and instead assumed the role of passive witnesses to my ordeal – I seriously considered suicide as I saw it
“Hello my name is [online alias]. I am a [self-given title] with [false number] of years’ experience. Even if you have no idea who I am in real life or what I really know; come take my class and you too can be a [self-given title].”
I’m sure you’ve come across this type of introduction on a website or facebook status and perhaps you might have considered the sale’s pitch and clicked the link to check out the impressive looking website with all the fancy and attractive images that accompanied the enticing words promising you influence and power. Perhaps you even watched a video they posted on that website or their affiliated YouTube Channel; but
“On this night of darkest blue,
May the burning flame call you,
As we welcome who came before,
Through the veil and open door.
This season of life and of death,
The old year taking its last breath,
And as it’s turning out to leave,
We remember our ancestors on this eve."
On Friday, October 13th I attended the funeral of my Dad’s uncle (my Grand Uncle?) with my parents and nephew. Uncle Rae, as I knew him, was a surrogate father to my own Dad since his father, my Grandfather, died when my Dad was just a child. While I knew my Uncle Rae and had only pleasant childhood memories of him, I didn’t really know him well. The most recent memory that I could recall of Uncle Rae was when I with the parents, visited the home he shared with a previous wife and step-children in the town of Marion, which had to have been in the late nineteen-seventies.
He had five sisters: Helen, Dorothy, Beatrice (Betty), Isabel (Izzy), and Mildred (Millie). I never met Helen or Dorothy; they died either before I was born or when I was just a baby, but I knew his other sisters. Betty lived with Izzy, my Dad’s mother, when I
“We have a whole definition of what a woman is, what a man is, how a woman should behave sexually, how a man should behave sexually. Men are always too macho or too wimpy depending on who is judging. Women are always too thin or too fat. We have all these beliefs about how a woman should be in order to be beautiful. You have to buy the right clothes, create the right image, so you can be seductive and fit that image. If you don’t fit that image of beauty, you grow up believing that you’re not worthy, that no one will like you.”
- The Mastery of Love, by Don Miguel Ruiz
Chakras are energetic points, nodes, or vortexes within the subtle body, which is composed energy or etherical matter, and are connected by energy channels called Nadi. There are various chakras, usually seven, depending on the tradition there may be more considered, running the length of the torso. When there is a blockage of energy in any of these chakras the physical body experiences pain or distress and depending on which chakra it is that is blocked, will determine how that pain will manifest in the physical body; sometimes if the blockage is in the crown chakra, the individual will experience a headache, in the solar plexus – stomach distress. The ideal condition for over-all well-being and health is to have free flowing energy throughout the body and to have chakras that are neither blocked nor hyperactive or over stimulated.
This morning I had a fellow Witch, who is just discovering or rather rediscovering herself and her Craft, message me about her recent experiences with a spirit board. It is a tool she is building a relationship with and through this process has discovered that she holds some energetic resistance to it. She is clearly aware that she is skeptical, but there is some deeper resistance and was seeking my insight to her experiences. The resistance she is experiencing I suggested was fear.
Spirit boards carry a bad reputation, in part I believe, because of the plethora of movies that have been made filled with the prorogation that they are
I recently watched a recording of a LIVE stream on YouTube where the individual asked:
"Are we dealing with the Shadows of others when we deal with judgement from others? Are their Shadows being forced upon us?"
I wished I could have been watching when the stream was live because I would have shared my thoughts then, but I wasn't so I will share them here in a blog post.
The simple answer to these questions is “No.”
So I was sitting here at my keyboard since yesterday, wondering what I was going to post about this week and it seemed that I had nothing to say, which is unusual because there are always thoughts and ideas dancing around in my head; character development ideas for Secrets of Syn, plot points for the novel I’m in the process of writing or just ideas of videos, and I considered that perhaps I felt uninspired to write because of the grief that had quietly and unassumingly resurfaced as it does every year at this time.
It’s autumn and Mabon is just days away, which will be quickly followed by Samhain, my all-time favorite holiday, but since 2011 it has become less fun and more bitter-sweet. It doesn't help that she was autumn
I am the author of an on-going paranormal fictional series titled Secrets of Syn. You can purchase a bound copy of chapters 1 - 35 through Amazon by following the link in the side bar.
In this witchy series the main character, Angie, an angsty teenager with a fractured psyche and unusual abilities direct descendant of Abigail Williams of Salem fame, identifies herself as a poetess. I've decided to share some of Angie's writings with you this week because honestly, her words are my own. I hope you enjoy.
The world is going through a great energetic shift, which will ultimately lead to a spiritual evolution, one in which many of us have been anxiously waiting, but these great shifts do not come without pain and suffering. We can look at the natural order to see that with every manifestation that occurs on this plane of existence within this shared reality there is always some type of destruction and with that there is usually pain and suffering. Human beings are born into physicality through their mothers, who experience the pains of labor followed by the physical stress and discomfort of child birth, but these women endure and some willingly experience this pain more than once during their lifetime because they possess the knowledge of what joys are to come. There is truly nothing more valuable to us than that which is
I have been asked by an online friend and Witch, Adam Balan, to address the following quote that he shared with me. He explained that he read this comment in a post on a video that they had watched on someone else's YouTube channel. It was not stated by the YouTuber he was watching, but was left by a viewer of this particular channel. Adam recorded his own thoughts on this quote, which can be found on his channel under the video titled: The Witchy Show: "My Craft Is Better". You can access it through this link. I agree with his opinion and thoughts on this, but I have some things to share with you, my readers as well. Let's begin with me sharing the quote with you.
