There is no greater test then life so sleep well my friend. We grow anxious and impatient far too often, to no end. For when it's all said and done, our minds may grow weary. But to live today and now we must stop to see clearly. 🌟
4 Warning Signs in Covens
1️⃣ Members that don't seem to get along with each other. If you have a group of eight people, and four of them are snarking at one another constantly, it may not be a coven you want to be a part they may be offering you membership in hopes that you'll take sides, and you'll find yourself caught in the middle of a squabble that existed before you even came along. Stay away.
2️⃣ Leaders who are on a power trip. If the High Priestess or High Priest is the only one who knows all the secrets, and is the only one who will EVER be privileged enough to know all the secrets, then they're on a power trip. These are the people who like to boss coven members around, they don't let any one member have too much information, and the coven is for their own personal gain.
3️⃣ Leaders who clearly don't know what they're doing. When you ask your prospective coven's High Priestess how long she's been Wiccan, and she tells you "three months," it's time to bail out. There's no set time on learning, but someone who's only been studying for a little while simply does not have the experience to lead a coven or teach others.
4️⃣Covens that demand you give up your money, family and friends. While it's fine to contribute a love offering to a coven's petty cash fund, if the High Priestess/Priest expects you to give him your ENTIRE paycheck, look elsewhere. No reputable coven will encourage you to forsake your loved ones, or tell you that the coven comes before any and all other obligations. A group that does this is not a coven, it is a cult.
Here are Bible verses for tradition.
1 Corinthians 11:2
2 I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I have delivered them to you. †
2 Thessalonians 2:15
15 So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter. †
2 John 1:12
12 Though I have much to write to you, I would rather not use paper and ink, but I hope to come to see you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete. †
3 John 1:13-14
13 I had much to write to you, but I would rather not write with pen and ink; †
14 14I hope to see you soon, and we will talk together face to face.
It is still crazy to me seeing how different I am now than even 2 years ago, much less 4 years ago. When I was 260lbs ish, I was definitely not happy. Hearing about how my friends found that guy attractive and this guy is hot, was disheartening. Most of all I felt unattractive and unhealthy. So I did something about it, I changed my mindset and put goals down that I wanted to attain. In six months I lost 50lbs. Then over the years I fluctuated up and down and found myself where I'm at now. Its taken a lot of work but I feel great and look wt myself in a different light now. I quit caring bout what other people think and focused on me. As long as we put our minds to it we can truly do anything. So if you have a goal go get it, be dedicated to it, don't half ass it and complain its not working or its too hard. You can overcome it all and be where you want to be, you just have to do it.
Every day before today, was preparing you for this moment. If you feel like you still need permission to be a Peak Player in everything, then your wish has been granted. Dominate more now, become more now, and give more now. Peace badass 😎. Leave your thoughts below! 👇🏼
Don't allow the world to harden you. Don't live your whole life sedated by the media, the celebrity gossip, running after a relationship, pursuing that career, chasing that next high. When you're moved with compassion by something, act on it without hesitating. When you see injustice, stand up and say something! When you don't feel a peace by a situation or environment, GET OUT. If you're feeling pressured to make a big decision, walk away, and take time to pray & medicate on it. Love hard. Don't be afraid to cry sometimes. Take a moment to breathe in deeply, and feel the breath in your lungs. Be present. Evaluate your own life, motives & intentions - even if what you see in the mirror scares you. Because that's the only way we'll truly grow, and the only way we can truly make a difference in this world. It's ok to feel deeply. 🙏🏾 #honeyvibe#jstdavid#writersofig#writersofinstagram#feelings#love#anger#sadness#compassion#happiness#thoughts#selfawareness#truth
