Samhain Blessings!

Samhain Blessings!

My Samhain altar (Click for a larger view in a new window.) Blessed Samhain to all! Samhain (pronounced "sow-in") is an important Sabbat in the Wheel of the Year.  Many celebrate it as the Celtic New Year, as I do.  It is a day that also represents the end of the harvest and the beginning […]

Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned

Note:  I feel it necessary to remind readers of my disclaimer. Judge not lest ye be judged… This is such a universal rule to live by, yet it is one that is seemingly impossible to abide by all the time.  We all judge, on some level, whether or not we admit it to ourselves.  Sometimes […]

Wednesday Wishes

Wednesday Wishes

Today's wish is about saying "yes".  This sounds so very simple, the simple act of saying or thinking "yes," of giving yourself permission to do whatever it is that you need to do.  But there is nothing simple about it, at least not yet and not for me.  Why is it so hard?  There are […]

Making wishes on a Wednesday

Making wishes on a Wednesday

It's been awhile since I have "wishcast" but today's prompt is a good one, and an important one.  Today's Wishcasting is about expressing yourself, and just what it is that you want to express.  There are a lot of things I want to express.  My feelings, my soul, my creativity, my story.   But the […]

Monday Madness

Monday Madness

This has been an illuminating weekend, even if I spent most of it tethered to textbooks and my laptop.  It started with a post from Dominee of Blessing Manifesting, whom I adore.  The girl, while well over a decade younger than me, is one of the wisest and kindest souls I have ever met.  And […]

Fun stuff (and free!)

Fun stuff (and free!)

Way back in January, I got my first VoxBox from Influenster.  I had never heard of them until my friend Sarah started posting about them on her Facebook page.  Totally curious, I checked them out.   Influenster is basically based on word of mouth marketing and focus grouping via blogs and vlogs.  They are free […]

The path to enlightenment

The path to enlightenment

I am not a fluffy bunny girl.   That is just who I am.  I am not a pessimist, but I am a realist.  I have had more than my fair share of hurts and betrayals and disappointments and they have helped to shape me into who I am today.  I am okay with being […]

Crossroads & babies

Crossroads & babies

My card of the day scared me a bit today.  But, as in all things tarot and oracle, one can not take a death card literally!  Fortunately!  I have had more than enough of death and loss over the last several years, and I don't need any more of that right now. The Angel de […]
