Merry We Meet!!

This is my space to share, rant, rave, and even do a little bragging about my life choices, family, and where each are taking me.

Many people think 'witch' and immediately jump to the conclusion that I am some weirdo who's home smells like stale incense and thinks Mr. Potter is end all be all of magick. I hate to disappoint, but I am as normal as the next person. As much as a person can be normal.

So, please read on. Enjoy my trials and tribulations. Hopefully, you can learn something from the mistakes I make and the good fortunes that come my way.

Time to listen...

Merry Meet Everyone!!

I am in a great mood today. I was finally able to get out of bed. I cooked dinner for the first time in 4 months! And we had a great sitdown family dinner!! It always makes me happy to see my family gathered around the table enjoying time together. Also, my son helped me prepare the dinner today. Completely unlike him but the help was greatly appreciated. Not to mention, it was fun to have him in the kitchen with me. Even if it did make the process take twice as long.

Now, time to dive straight in!

Many times we hear things, but we don't actually listen. This happens in almost every aspect of our lives. I know there are many times when my boyfriend will say something. I hear his voice... but the words just don't register with me. My son babbles on for hours about this or that. I hear him. But, I admit, I rarely actually listen to the ins and outs of how a clone trooper came to be.

This doesn't just apply to my small family either. Many times when I was outside I could hear the birds and crickets that dwell in the shadows of my breezeway. Until recently, I rarely took the time to listen to what was going on around me. Now when I step outside, there is a symphony of sounds and life buzzing around me. I swear, on my more in-tuned days, I can hear the grass growing!

Very few people actually take the time to step outside themselves and just enjoy the life cycles that are thriving around them on a daily basis. Now, even I don't do it everyday. Life happens and I get too busy with homework, household chores, or my crafting. But I try. Even if it's only for a few moments. I find that once I take the time to listen, my life not only takes on a different meaning but I feel more connected to the earth and all the living things around me. And in turn, the Goddess herself.

Listening is a skill that can be transferred to other aspects as well. I used to be a massage therapist before I acquired some health problems that prevented me from doing my job. I have always been really in-tuned with the human body. Even before my training I could always find the knots and pain spots in someone's back or shoulders without really trying. After training I was not only able to listen to my clients body's with amazing ease, but I learned a lot about listening to my own body. In turn, and even I found this slightly weird, I was able to better understand my vehicle. I could tell when things were going wrong with my car by the way the gas peddle reacted under my foot.

Also, listening to your own intuition...something a lot of people have gotten away from. I use my intuition on a daily basis. Rather than always following what my head is telling me is right, I follow what I FEEL is the right path. Of course, discretion is advised! You can't go all willy nilly with it. And it is almost like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it becomes! Don't mistake intuition for emotions though. That can simply get you into trouble. And there are times when even your head has to step in and say 'Wait a gosh darn minute, and just think about this first!' But on the whole, your intuition will hardly ever lead you down the path.

There is a great site that goes into to this a little deeper and offers help on using your intuition. I suggest that anyone who wants to delve deeper into this subject start here.

Well... that is all for today!

Blessed Be My Friends!
