Peace As A Process

January 14, 2013


I’m low on energy this morning. I was low on energy yesterday too. How can I tell? I can tell by the fact that Ego – that little voice that likes to criticize and nit-pick and complain – is carrying out its business in stentorian style this morning. The messages cascading through my mind are […]

2013 Dawns Brightly

January 2, 2013


On this path, it is essential, I believe, to learn to honor the ebbs and flows that exist in our lives. Were I still on the Path to Perfection, I very could easily flay myself on a mental level for having been so absent from this space. I recognize, however, that the period proceeding was […]

A Journey Toward Healing

December 3, 2012


Greetings, dear friends. I am coming to you on my iPad this morning from the extreme comfort of my bed. The past week has been a particularly intense one for me. A surge of spiritual growth, the likes of which I cannot say I’ve experienced in sometime. One, which I strongly suspect has landed me […]

So What? – Wisdom From My Dad

November 5, 2012


Thursday was a really challenging day for me…  One thing or another seemingly tried to push me down and keep down.  If it weren’t for my husband, who has been helping to keep me as sane as humanly possible for over twenty years now, I don’t know what I would have done. He helps me to […]

Being In This World, Not of It

November 2, 2012


Be in this world, but not of it. It’s a concept that I am trying really hard to implement in my own life.  It’s not easy, though, I realize.  It’s a balancing act really.  (There we go, again.  Isn’t that what I already told you it all comes down to for me?  Balance.) I find it difficult. […]

Balance: A Conscious Decision

October 26, 2012


With November quickly approaching and NaNoWriMo riding its coat tails, I’ve plunged into the process of preparation this week.  I’ve been inspired. In-spirit.  My inner child delighting in world and character creation.  I know this because my days – with the girls at school – have quickly flown by.  Time has seemingly lost all integrity. […]

Changes On the Horizon

October 17, 2012


The “New Year” is nearly upon us… Within the Pagan tradition I developed quite a few of my beliefs, it is believed that Samhain, which falls approximately at the end of October and the beginning of November, begins the New Year.  I say “approximately” because the Sabbat (or holiday) is actually based upon the journey […]

Unconsciousness Moments: The Freedom to Be Human

October 5, 2012


Friday has arrived!  Just as it always does I suppose.  Being a stay-at-home-mom, one might think I wouldn’t look forward to Friday and the weekends.  Indeed, I enjoy having my family at home, about me, but there is something I look forward to just as much.  The ability to sleep in. Normal wake up time […]

Spiritual Tools: Meditation

October 2, 2012


One of – if not the most – potent tools we have available to us in our quest to connect with Spirit is meditation.  The biggest problem many of us have with utilizing it, though, is based upon a couple of thoughts… “It’s too hard/complicated.”  “I don’t have the time.” These are false beliefs, though. […]

Seek Not Without, Go Within

October 1, 2012

Comments Off on Seek Not Without, Go Within

Quiet and solitude… I’ve been contemplating the necessity of these things for what seems to be weeks now, having first been inspired by a post from my dear friend and heart sister, Ashtoreth Eldritch, then by a couple from the Mystic Mamma (We Need Time Alone and Woman Is the Axis). For a couple of […]
