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.

Unexpected gifts...

Today I was given a very unexpected gift from a very unexpected source.  A friend of mine's mother, who sings in the Catholic church choir near my house, came to visit me today with her daughter. They were bringing me some books for my son. Before she left she took a pendant out of her pocket and handed to me. It was a brass pendant of the Goddess. It was just a little trinket that she had picked up at least 20 years prior because she liked the look of it. I was so touched by the gift I could barely manage a thank you.

I have found, since my "coming out", that some of the most staunch Christians have been some of my biggest supporters. I have never felt judged or persecuted by them. Now on the converse side, I have been verbally attacked by other Christians that think they are being Christian. In all honestly, I believe that these "so-called" Christians could take a lesson or two...maybe even a thousand, from the real Christians who 1.) don't judge others 2.) never condemn someone because of life choices and 3.) understand that their is more than one path, even if it doesn't agree with their beliefs.

When you open up your world to others, you may be surprised by the responses and support you can receive. It may not be from who you expect. And those you wish would support you, may not. But the happiness and freedom you gain from being yourself and standing up for your own beliefs are unmeasurable.

Far too long...

It has been far too long since my last post. I apologize. Unfortunately, I ran into a horrible stint of writer's block! I have been trying and trying to come up with a interesting topic for all my readers. Even as I write this I am still sorting through different topics.

I was given the suggestion, via facebook, to write about how I find the Goddess in the dead of winter when everything is covered in snow (or in the case of this winter, covered in mud!). I do believe that this topic has won out among the others which just don't seem nearly interesting enough!

It is easiest to find the Goddess at night when the moon is hanging serenely in the sky and her light washes over everything beneath her. But during the day when I look out and see the dead mud browns of winter, the leafless tress (which I find beautiful in their own way), and nothing but biting cold it tends to be a little harder to find her beauty. Everything slumbers, even a majority of the wildlife (if you can call the city animals wildlife ^_^) nestles into their burrows and nests, sleeping away the cold.

Occasionally there are indoor plants to remind you that spring is just around the corner (We don't have any at the moment. We just moved into our new house and indoor plants were just not a priority at the time.). Now is the time when the earth itself is sleeping. Renewing herself for the coming seasons. Preparing to offer us the bounty of foods that we so depend on throughout the year. Now is the time to plan gardens and rest, just like our mother earth. That is how I find the Goddess in the dead the of winter.

Now, at this time in the season I should be planning out my garden, picking and sorting through seeds and other plants. But this year...I know that I will have too much going on this year to spend my spring/summer buried in my garden. That and...well... I rarely get to get out of my bed as it is right now. But soon enough we will be welcoming our newest family member into our lives and we will all be consumed with nurturing and caring for our new arrival.

So next year I will get to have my glorious garden. That is the wonderful, and sometimes scary, part of life... plans change and evolve. I am so excited for this new path to start.

Blessed Imbolc!!

Wishing each and everyone of you a very blessed Imbolc, with the hopes that the Goddess Brighid will bless your homes with health and happiness this coming year!

Now is the time to bust out your brooms, mops, dusters, and mops! Imbolc is a wonderful time for spring cleaning, even here in Michigan this year it's warmer than any other year I can remember. I did some major cleaning earlier this week. Being pregnant I have to do things when I have the energy to do them. Today, I am spending the day at my mother and father's doing the household laundry. Usually this is something I would do at home, but we currently have a gas leak in the line that leads to our dryer...needless to say the line is shut off so the dryer is USELESS. Carrying wet clothes upstairs and across the street to my friend's house is just not feasible for me. So I am here.

I am in the process of planning out my first Imbolc ritual that includes my son! He is very very excited for tonight's ritual. He really enjoyed the Yule ritual we celebrated together. I, however, can not take the credit for writing that one. A friend of mine did, I just tweaked it a bit to fit my son's age. Once I get something written out I will post it for you all.

There are some very common elements I want to include this year, such as:

  • Sweeping/Vacuuming out the entire house - to rid the house o negative energies
  • A home blessing/cleansing
  • Candle lighting - this step is a must in my opinion!
  • Burning of the Yule blessings - I think this is what my son is looking forward to the most.

Now, unlike a lot of witches I know, I don't usually cast circles unless I am working spells or doing divination at the same time. There is no real reason why. I would love to cast a few circles with my son, I believe he'd enjoy calling the elements and the energy in the circle. So I have been toying with idea of doing this sabbat ritual within the confines of a circle.

Well, I do believe that I am running out of time. I would like to get this written before dinner time tonight. More than likely I will post, on the Sabbats page, a little later with the ritual I come up with for me and my son.

I hope you all enjoy this blessed day! Keeps thoughts of peace, happiness, and spring on your mind throughout the day!!

Blessed Be My Friends!
