It's been a while since I've posted anything here on the blog, but it wasn't because I hadn't been thinking about it. I have been - constantly. I just wasn't sure what I had to say as I've been transitioning within my own practice, my own Craft since we relocated from the East Coast to the West. And honestly, it has been a challenging transition for me. I mean, I knew I was going to experience a shift in my practice, but I was naive to think it was going to be easy and simple and quick. It has been anything and everything but that. We, as Witches, experience changes within our Craft because, well we are human beings and as we all grow, right? We are not the same person now as when we were five years old or fifteen, as we live our lives we have experiences ... some are profound like a messy divorce or the death of a parent while others are
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
My sister, who is four years younger, is visiting with my two nieces from Texas. She moved to the Lonely Star state about three years ago for a number or reasons, but that is her story to share, and has come home for my nephew’s college graduation. She arrived in Massachusetts the first weekend in June and is planning to drive back to Austin at the end of July. And I’m going to miss her. To be completely transparent concerning my feelings about her departure; I don’t want her to go. I simply don’t want her to leave. And as surprising as it was, when I sat here at my PC and typed out the proceeding words, tears rolled down my face. I understand that my desire for her to stay is completely selfish and that these feelings are premature because she still has two more weeks in Massachusetts, but I can only imagine that my desire will not diminish, but grow. And, yes, I realize that it is completely necessary for her to return to Texas, but if I had the ability to keep her here without compromising her and my nieces’ well-being, I would. Seriously, I would cast a fucking powerful spell and it would manifest.
This is definitely a time for severing ties for me. These times aren't always a peaceful and joyful experience: sometimes it is painful and filled with sorrow. This is one of those times. I find myself reflecting on what has transpired over the span of the time that I was bound to the person or situation and what has now manifested into being from that experience. It has always been difficult for me to let go of relationships in my life, though I realize that it may appear otherwise. To those observing my actions and responses to the cutting of ties, it may seem as if I am detached and cavalier, that severing a relationship is a simple task for me, but I can assure you that it is not. Inside I am unsettled, troubled, and an emotional wreck.
No one can force someone else do something they are not willing to do. You cannot create a life experience for someone else. You can only create it for yourself. We can only live our life for ourselves. And it is you who can change things in your life for yourself. It is when a number of individuals have the same intention and are shifting the vibrational frequency of their own life in unison with others doing the same that we experience a change within society. It is me changing myself, changing my own life at the same time that you are changing you, changing your life, him changing his own life at the same time that you and I are changing ours, and her changing her own life at the same time that you, him, and I are changing ours. Together we create a vibrational shift that builds
In the past I have described myself as a "people person" I generally have looked for the best qualities and the potential that people hold within themselves. A friend and I might engage in a conversation about a coworker of theirs and they would describe a situation where they witnessed actions that seemed to be motivated by spite. They would then label that individual as “an asshole” but I would pleasantly and honestly explain how that “asshole” had qualities that would balance their personality. I would highlight the wonderful things that my friend had told me about this person before. I did this without hesitation and with ease because I truly could see these positive characteristics and I believed the words I was saying.
An example of how I did this would be when discussing the overall concept of The
Something is occurring within me. I am not certain what it is but it is ‘something’. It is probably a vibrational shift or realignment but usually when these have occurred I knew it was approaching and was prepared for it but this one, well, I can’t say I was prepared. It seemed to have been sprung upon me. Or perhaps I wasn't paying attention and was distracted by other things ... more mundane concerns. Unless, this isn't even an energetic shift and something entirely different. I just don't know. I'm not sure how to proceed. My husband has suggested that perhaps I am under some low level pressure ... if this is the case where is it originating and why is it here? What is the purpose of this experience? I am baffled.
For the past few days, maybe a week, I’ve been feeling energetically drained and physically tired. It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep my eyes open and mind focused as two o’clock in the afternoon saunters through my day.
As we pass through this shift, this spiritual transformation, there are many who will be distressed, angry and irrational. The world is changing in ways that are beyond our physical control and this may create distress for most of humanity who are so rooted in this physical plane. Empathic individuals will experience much of this emotional turmoil.
This time of transformation may be difficult if you are an empath that is just coming into the understanding of your abilities. All humanity’s energy both elevated and distorted, as well as that of the animal kingdom (also in transition), will flood an empath’s psyche and may be overwhelming. Gaia, the living goddess energy that is manifested as physical, will also be sending out waves of energy. It is because of this influx of vibration,
