Today, I drew Teiwaz and it couldn't be more apt - I am the biggest doubter, worrier and self-sabatouer that I know ...

If there is a doubt in my mind it will build and build and build until it blows up out of all proportion and then I will cage myself into feeling that I am not worthy, not valued and not doing what I should!

Fortunately, this Path lends me the strength to know that I CAN do the things I attempt - I CAN be the person that I want to be!!!

But, (you knew that was coming didn't you??) as an Empath, sometimes the doubts, worries and insecurities aren't mine - but I can make them mine - owning my feelings is something that I work at daily, but I can, and often do, make mistakes ...

Nobody is perfect, nobody is exempt from feelings and no-one is above the basic of human feelings - and that includes the Spiritually Enlightened - LOL - in fact, I would say that we are 'more' prone to those 'baser' feelings - as 'enlightened' beings we are supposed to be above such things - but all that being enlightened means is that we have the tools to deal with our issues ....

This is a lesson that I am continually learning, and the biggest lesson I have to learn is to release these issues that do not serve my highest good to the 'big, blue yonder' and learn to trust that the Goddess will always be by my side.

Rune Draw - Sunday 31st March

TEIWAZ ~ The Warrior

The only way is up!!!

This is the Rune of the Warrior - and with most Spiritual journeys the person we are battling the most is ourself... Self-sabotage, doubt, fears, ego - all these things will lay traps and obstacles on our Path - Teiwaz is here to remind us that we should not fear to cut away the old, the answers we seek lie within and only by being clear and honest with ourselves can we move forward ..

Lurgy.... Laptops....Rituals

Phew - what a fun packed couple of days I've had ....

I succumbed to the flu virus that is going around and spent the majority of a week in bed ... it's no fun when you are ill - but it did give me a chance to have a good long think about where I am, where I am headed and what I want to do...

I have, for many months now had the same meditations and guidance where I've been told that I need to be more creative, poetry wise (I think that's what it means) and so, I'm going to look into maybe getting some/all of my poems into some kind of book - whether that's a collaboration with someone or on my own - but it's what I think I have to do.... will there be any call for that kind of book - dunno - that's not for me to decide!

I have a new laptop now - ohhh - the trouble I have had setting it up - but, fingers crossed we are now all set up and running and I've joined the 21st Century!!! - Windows 8 is a major PITA but I will crack it :)

Tomorrow, we will be heading to QECP to the Ostara - Alder Moon ritual - and I have to say I am really looking forward to this one - it's been a long time since the last ritual and even longer since I've had a chance to meet and laugh with the KW'ers...

Right, that's it from me for now - more clicking and sighing as I figure out this lappy!

love to all

About time too....

Yeah, I know I've been staying offline for a while which has meant the blog has suffered a wee bit...

I haven't really had anything worth blogging about as I've been very, very busy not doing what the Divine has wanted me to do... but today I feel much better and feel that I am 99% back to being me and what better way to celebrate that then getting creative with my Blog and re-jigging my Altars ....

Mundane stuff will always want to 'kick butt' and if you let it (as I did) it can overwhelm you to a point where you don't know if what you are doing is right, wrong, crazy or genius....

This month marks the anniversary of my Mum's death and that hit me hard round Mothering Sunday, then I was laid low by this cold virus thing but, I also feel, that this illness was in part some releasing, but also the Divine's way of saying "Sit down and listen to me" I know I have a lot of Soul searching and choices to make in the very near future and I've been resisiting the changes I'm to make as they are going to hurt!

But, no pain, no gain as they say - and I know that I walk the Path that I am meant to walk - and I know that I do not ever walk this Path alone - I may feel like I do - but in reality I have my Sisters, I have the Goddess and I have my Faith and even in my darkest moments they have never forsaken me!

I am blessed to be able to proclaim loudly that I am a Witch, I do not need to hide any part of my life, I don't need to struggle alone - for that I give thanks every single day - so, today I will put up my Ostara altar and give thanks for all that is in my life - and for all that is to come!

Who knows, maybe the poetry will start to flow again as well :)

love and blessings to all

Rune Draw ~ Tuesday 5th March

URUZ ~ Strength

This Rune reminds me of the Yoke that goes round an Ox's neck or a cow and the message it's bringing to me today - bring it on my shoulders are broad - and that's really what this rune is about, accepting the challenges that the Universe throws your way, accepting them and knowing that you have the strength to endure any difficulties, and can adapt and flow with the changes ....
