Well…

I cannot believe it’s been so long since I have posted anything here.  Life has a weird way of catching up to you and before you know it, you’re stuck in traffic. Good news is that traffic always let’s up, it just may take a while.

So I’ve decided to get off the highway for a while

 and cruise down some backroads. Hopefully this will give me time to do what I love to do. Write.

Love, peace, and Blessed Be

You Don’t Believe? Then Don’t Worry.

So I was talking with a bar customer the other day and he made the statement “everyone who believes in astrology is crazy” and how he didn’t believe in astrology. That’s perfectly fine by me! We all have differing opinions about what we believe in. What I don’t understand is how you can’t believe in something but are afraid of it. For example:

If you don’t believe in magick, how can you believe that you have been cursed? That doesn’t make any damn sense. “I don’t believe that magick exists but please don’t curse me!” Really? That would be like saying “I don’t believe in God but I hope he doesn’t smite me for saying that.” If you don’t believe in God, there would be no ‘he’ and definitely no smiting. 

So anyway, this guy continues to tell me that he believes a certain person was going to or had put a curse on him. I explained to him that was not what was happening and tried an educational route. He responded with “I don’t believe in any of that.” *facepalm. I then tried to explain that if he truly didn’t believe in magick or any of “that”, he wouldn’t have to worry about being cursed. Ugh.

Yes, I am a witch. No, I will not curse you. That completely violates the threefold rule. That would be stupid. Going dark is not something you can come back from. I practice purely helpful magick, energy manipulation, meditation, spells for healing, spells for money, etc. I might occasionally bind someone but that’s as far as I go. 

So who do I worship? 

I worship no one being. I hate that word. I draw energy from the faces of the Divine diamond but I don’t worship anyone or anything. I simply call upon them for aid in whatever spell I’m working because divine energy is incredibly helpful. Yes I give thanks to those I call upon but it’s not worship. 

No, I don’t hurt people.  I also stay away from love spells. That’s a wishy washy subject. A “be careful what you wish for” topic.

My point?

People are stupid. Don’t be stupid. Believe what you want to. Your beliefs are yours and yours alone. Don’t believe in it? Don’t worry about it!

Blessed be.

Adventures

Adventures aren’t always traveling far away. They can be as simple as going to Waffle House at 3am or a spontaneous trip to the river five minutes from your house. Adventures don’t always have to be with someone else either. You could take a trip to a little hole in the wall used book store or take yourself out to lunch. 

It’s always fun with somebody though. Everyone needs that one person to randomly do shit with. That friend that will call you at 2pm and say “get dressed we’re going on an adventure”. 

Be that friend. Call someone close to you and go do something. Go get coffee. Go get tattoos. Do an impromptu photo shoot in the park near your house. 

Getting ready to move across the country, I’m looking for my adventure buddy. Be that a romantic partner or a friend…doesn’t matter. I’d love to have someone pack everything up and travel with me. On the way to Arizona we will stop at all the breweries on the way. Site see, stay in motels, sing loudly to every song on the radio, just enjoy being together. We can go anywhere and do anything. The world is our playground.

Now accepting applications 😉

Blessed be!

Not Everyone Matters

Once you stop living your life for everyone else and start living your life for yourself, you find out who your true friends really are. Those who just wanted something from you, to use you and throw you away, suddenly dissappear, and all who remain are those who actually care about you. This number may be small, in fact it’s usually about two or three, but those two or three people are always there for you no matter what. Sometimes a person you thought was your best friend ends up being one of those disappearing acts. It hurts but you are better off for it in the end.

By trying to eliminate things that are tying me down so I can seamlessly move across the country, I feel like I’ve lost a lot of people. One person in particular has used me time and time again and now that I’ve come to terms with it, they have basically left my life completely. Over and over again I have seen this person, my best friend, destroy everything they worked hard for and run to me to save the day. 

No more. I’m not in the saving mood any longer. I don’t want relationships, friendships included, that require me to save someone. I want all the people in my life to walk beside me, not in front of or behind me. I want people in my life that support me as much as I support them. I want people who work WITH me.

“The light from the fires of the bridges I’m burning will guide my way.”

I would love to find someone that will travel the world with me. An adventure partner. Be that a friendship or a relationship, it doesn’t matter. Will I find that person here? Most likely not. I’ve burned so many bridges here in my hometown, I’m surrounded by flames. Granted those flames are giving me the strength and the energy I need to go somewhere completely new and uproot my entire life and start over.

That being said, one soul has touched mine and stoked the fire inside of me, so to speak. This soul brought my name to me, constantly challenges me to think, and gives me a steady unlimited energy stream. I don’t know where this new found connection will take me but I do know that I am better for having met them. I’m putting this in the hands of the universe. Where ever it leads, it leads. If it doesn’t go anywhere, so be it.

Start living your life for YOU and everyone you don’t need will go away and leave those who love you standing there with open arms. Remember: NOT EVERYONE MATTERS. Only a select few matter and those are the ones to focus on. Stop focusing on how other people see you and just BE you.

Blessed be!

Don’t Waste It

A lot of people were shocked when I quit my teaching career. “You’re leaving a salaried position to go back to bartending?” Or “you’re leaving a respectable job to be a BARTENDER?” Or “your money is never promised in that line of work.” I was called an embarrassment.

I had to do something. I was getting sick every morning before I would get to work. I was having panic attacks three or four times a day. I HATED teaching. I HATED going to work. I didn’t want to wake up in the morning. I was miserable.

So I put in my resignation and got hired on at a bar in Richmond. I HAD to do it. Teaching was literally killing me. 

Now I am so incredibly happy. I get antsy waiting to leave my house for work. Bartending is an art and a science. I get to meet new people every day and I get to see some of the same faces. Every shift is different from the last. I don’t have to live in a box. I can go out and do whatever I want to do without fear of the public seeing me and then losing my job. 

I came across this today which prompted this post:

This is what I have been doing for the past year. Even through the heartbreak I have seriously been happier than I have in my entire life. I am no longer living a life that everyone else wants me to live. I am living for ME. I will eventually find a person that will want to share my life and appreciate me for who I am and what I do, but for right now I am doing what I want to do.

So, take the picture, take the selfie, go to that old bookstore, travel across the country, travel to other countries, go see the world, be happy with who you are and what you want. You only have one life so live it how you want to live it. I know I am and it feels amazing. 

Don’t waste your life.

Risk It

Oh so true. Pure happiness is way too rare and way too precious to not go after. If you never take the chance, you will never reap the rewards. The worst thing that can happen is you make a mistake. But guess what? Mistakes are how we learn our lessons in life. Don’t miss out on an opportunity because you are too scared of failure. 

Let’s look at the word FAIL. I cannot remember where I saw this but the word FAIL stands for First Attempt In Learning. Remember that movie Meet The Robinsons? The characters were so excited when the pb&j machine blew up. They were screaming “yay you failed!” Keep that mentality. In order to succeed you must first fail.

Take the risk, make the jump, and live life to the fullest.

Blessed be!

Raise Your Vibration Part 2

You are probably sitting there thinking “Well that’s great and all, but how do I accomplish raising my vibration? What does it mean?” 

Every soul buzzes at a certain frequency. Everything living and non-living has an energy, or at least the ability to hold energy. Crystals, for example, have a natural frequency of their own but are also charged by their owners. 

So how can you stop living at a low frequency? Here’s something I found very helpful in my journey:

If you feel yourself getting low, go dancing, hug a friend, cuddle with your pet, do some arts and crafts, write something, go take a walk outside and just listen and feel what mother nature has to offer, take a deep breath and re-center yourself. “Oh but I’m so busy. I don’t have time for that.” Yes you do. I live a very busy chaotic life yet I’ve started MAKING time for these things and I’ve really felt and seen a difference in myself. People close to me have noticed a difference too.

Just do it.

Blessed be!
