I am a nature, have been for all my life. I lost sight of that once or twice and tried many religions. I was baptized Roman Catholic, Methodist, and Gnostic. I studied theology and majored in it. Talk about a conflict of interest there, not really though< I got to find out more about all religions as I decided what resonated with me. I found that nature fits me like a glove! I love the whole aspect of this lifestyle. I do not think of living a natural lifestyle as a religion; I think of it as a life. I live this way every day of my life.
I believe there is one source from where we all come from. I think there are many spirits out there. I can not tell you how many, but I believe we are all connected and that we all have lived many lives together. I think that this life is a dream and in death, that is when we awaken to who we indeed are. I believe our loved ones can see everything and are with us always. I am a spirit having a human experience.
I use, grow and eat of the earth, I use the plants as medicines, and when I am down, I love to recite minor spells to displace them and send them out while being absorbed by love. I love being a witch. I love that a gem or stone can heal anything. Energies are very real. The earth speaks to us, and a witch knows that what she gives she gets back times three. Wish more people understood that!!
I speak from my heart and also get hurt by living with my heart on my shoulder. I am reticent, solitary and I love that! I am a healer, empath and an intuitive person. I can tell when someone is not well and what is going on before they know. As much as I would love to heal them, I am foremost a teacher. It is not my job to save others; it is their job to save themselves. I HAVE A HARD TIME WITH THAT!! That is my biggest hang up on this here earth. I want to heal others, but I can not make them improve. I get depressed because of this. I hate to see others hurt or be sick. I want to help them avoid these issues. I am not supporting them though by not allowing them to find their own way. DANG, IT!!
My home is scented with cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger in the fall. In the winter, the house is scented with peppermint, chocolate, pumpkin spices. Summer is roses, gardenia and every flower out there I can get my hands on. I love the scent of Pine in spring. it is my favorite for it reminds me of the mountains as they wake up. My favorite pastime is watching a river flow, to hear the wind blow through the evergreens, to hear the black Jay yell hello. I am at peace in the wilderness. I like quiet mornings with the warmth of the sun shining on my back. My favorite movie is Harry Potter.
I woke this morning feeling very sad, no reason for it. So I get busy cleaning house as I am meditating, yes you can meditate anywhere at anytime. Anyway, as I am watering the plants it hits me, this is not my sadness it is someone else, so as I make the bed I do a little spell ( prayer indeed) this is not mine, so I allowed it to go with love back to the one it belonged. They need it right now; they need to learn from it. Realize this.
I think of empathy as static cling. You can pick up good and you can pick up bad. If I had not allowed myself to be with it and let it to fully manifest, it would have clung to me all day. If I had gone off trying to find distractions, I wouldn’t have figured this sadness was not mine. How many of us could learn these things if we stopped, listened and allowed what every was manifesting fully? How much would we determine if we didn’t instantly react? HMMM?
The spell worked. I felt lighter; the sadness went away, and I got this idea for a blog. Wow, just how cool is that? It is okay to be whoever you are. I am a witch and my favorite day is today. It is HALLOWEEN!
I discover that there is no ritual involved with living magically at every moment of our life. In fact, Magic on the fly works better for me than all the pomp and circumstances. I have a hard time finding time to step by step when I really just want to enjoy the moment or need that spell. Not that I am knocking any other way others do their thing. I think we all should be able to be open and enjoy what we do in life.
I love I can create what I need or want. There are no rules in practicing magic. Magic is in everything. It helps to heal; it helps to remove dark energies; it helps to make everyday things better. Magic is beautiful, mysterious and unique. Magic works best from a loving place. I believe the heart is pure magic!
Magic is a state of being. It is a lifestyle; it is a whole. I am so proud of being who I am. I hope you have a very magical day today! HAPPY SAMHAIN: My witchy and non-witchy friends.
Prepare a Samhain dinner. Include a place setting at your table or at a nearby altar for the Dead.
