I took a month off from blogging to begin journaling again. I had actually bought 2 very nice leather bound books from an etsy creator only to realize when they came that they were really big and bulky and not at all what i was hoping for. However I can see one becoming my BOS n the future and the other may become a gift to someone (not sure yet).
Instead I picked up a leather bound small journal and began writing. The words slipped onto the pages effortlessly as I begin address my Lady Goddess and communicating with her in a way I had not in several years (2010-2011) During my trials in Stephenville, TX.
Surprisingly I thought it would be awkward to keep a journal when my husband could peek at it in any time. However, he has been more than respectful and even promotoes my writings. I have finally gotten to the point where I can write while next to him in bed and he pays me no mind.
Its becoming more and more of a necessity for me to have the time to write down my thoughts and ponder like I use to.
The Big Ponders are the life coaching training I recently got for free and how I want to take this blog to the next level. I’ve always had a problem with trying to have a specific theme/topic blog and all of them, fading away because it was too singular focused.
What I would love to do is write about Light working, spells, Wicca/ Witchcraft, crystals, home therapies, positive thinking, being fat and working out, meditation, my artwork…see I am very much all over the dang place! I’m like one of those faceted crystal balls you hang in a window and rainbows explode everywhere!
I am thinking about returning to more Craft based topics as a way to reteach myself the 101 and 201 information but take my own spin on it as I approach the faith more from a Dianic tradition view. This means that the Goddess (my Matron) is the centerpoint of worship while the Gods are HER consorts and play a lesser role. This is different than most other Wiccan traditions and that I don’t really have the Balanced “Lord and Lady” in my Craft. Though I am still in a small self debate over this (do I include? How? Why? Etc.). Or maybe I am being pulled into discovering the feminine mysteries after being a tomboy my whole life? Again much more introspection on that note needs to be addressed.
This rise in Spirit has been having an interesting side affect on my job. I am getting more and more detached from the drama that swirls here. This is a good thing for the most part.
