There's this place we feel suspended in. This space between spaces. This dance of shadow and illumation. This sense of something...right there. Right beyond the slowly growing light that holds so much potential. So many answers.
This place is as important as it is uncomfortable; the discomfort comes when this slow revealing shows us the painful parts. The parts that are still there. The parts we need to learn to love, because those parts are the fragments we've denied. The pieces that are still transforming to help us build an entirely new puzzle; the one that only we can create. The one only we can complete.
It's been difficult trying to summon the words. It's been painful sitting in stillness. In stasis. But rather than fight this simmering fire, I think that thrusting our hands in will serve us better. I think we'll find that, when we pull them back, rather than the burning, dripping flesh we expect to see, we'll be met with something...else. Something unscathed. Something purified. A hand now ready to wield the swords of our elevation. Blades reflecting the eyes of a warrior ready to go forth not in aggression, but in acceptance. Not in a rage, but in understanding. Not in rush, but with patience and perseverance.
This is the beginning of yet another labyrinth, and although we don't feel it, we're shedding one more layer of armor along the way, lightening our load, quickening our hearts and our souls.
Quickening our entire essence, ensuring our readiness for our greatest, most fulfilling, most righteous quest yet...
The quest home. As we stoke our fires with our hard-earned anger, we WILL feel and know and see all that we need. We WILL finally, finally, see ourselves.
Just finished transplanting this gift from Mother Nature. A Red Bird of Paradise self-sowed itself, and I waited until it was large enough to transplant into it's permanent home. Better yet, there are more storms predicted for this evening, so it should settle in quite well..
Witchy Weed Wednesday: Nightshade. These are two common nightshade species you might find growing in your backyard. Black, glossy, and hairy nightshades all look fairly similar. They are small, bushy herbs up to 3' tall with white flowers and black berries. The flowers of the nightshade family look a little like inverted umbrellas, with very prominent yellow stamens and flower petals that peel back strongly toward the stem. You'll notice that your potatoes and tomatoes share this flower structure and are indeed part of the nightshade family. You may also have spotted similar purple flowers growing along your fence line, and this would be purple nightshade which is also sometimes referred to as bittersweet. Purple nightshade will mature into a large, woody vine with purple flowers and red berries. It is worthwhile to note that all berries of the nightshade family, including tomatoes, start off green and mature into their final color. While these plants are toxic, it would take a very large amount to give most children or dogs more than just an upset stomach. If your children come inside with purple or black stains around their mouth and you're not certain of what they ate, it might be worthwhile to call poison control just to get their advice. These plants are obviously not the deadly nightshade to become a leaping go, also called belladonna. That plant is a European species that rarely escapes into the wild here in the States. These plants are all baneful herbs, meaning they are excellent for repelling negative spirits or energies and curses. Hang them in your home or above your door. #witchyweedwednesday#weeds#herbs#herbalism#plants#plantspirits#nature#natural#vegetables#garden#gardening#poison#poisonous#nightshade#belladonna#bittersweet#pagan#paganism#kids#safety#wicca#occult#metaphysical#rootwork#greenwitch#hedgewitch
Another shot of this pretty baby🌹
I've been having to experiment with new outdoor backgrounds now that the neighbors chopped down the beautiful tree behind our house down that I use to use. 😡 I was thinking of getting a nice plant that would climb up the lattice. 🌿 we have an increasingly lack of green around us. 😦
Finished another corner in my workspace today - minus that massive gap between the wall and door that makes my OCD crrrrrazy. But hey, with no AC it's too dang hot to fix that mess today. #hurryupfixmyac#babyisfinallynapping

Fuchsite is a green form of mica with a wonderfully light-hearted yet grounded energy. It is an excellent stone for those working with their heart chakra and learning to express their true desires. It is a great stone to use with reiki and energetic healings. It has a compassionate and friendly energy and would be good for those who want to open up more to others. The green color of the stone combined with the mica makes it excellent to use attract abundance and wealth.

Ecco i risultati delle carte di sta mattina:
1) La Dea Nut (completamento, realizzazione, integrità): godete di ottima protezione e siete invitati a vostra volta ad impegnarvi nel proteggere le vostre imprese. Siete circondati da una Energia benevola dentro e fuori di voi, in grado di favorire anche l'autoguarigione. Approfittate di questo periodo per prendervi cura di voi stessi e dei vostri progetti.
2) Il Profeta (perfetto equilibrio, consigliere): in questa lama é presente il Dio Ptah protettore degli artisti e degli artigiani. É tempo di lasciare alle spalle le preoccupazioni materiali e dedicarsi alla creatività e alla meditazione. Produrrete in questo modo un'energia utile per ristabilire il giusto equilibrio e per la vostra crescita interiore e professionale.
3) Il Tramonto (crisi, tentennamenti, eccessi): dovrete misurarvi coi vostri limiti ed è bene che non perdiate il controllo se percepite la sensazione di non farcela. Calma. Fermatevi ad osservare con maggiore obbiettività la situazione e poi agite nel rispetto dei vostri tempi. A volte le cose non sono così insormontabili come sembrano.
4) Il Grande Giudizio di Osiride (ispirazione,gnosi,discernimento): è un periodo di grande ispirazione per voi, siete in cammino verso un'evoluzione spirituale e ciò che avete studiato fin'ora vi ha dato sufficiente esperienza per trovare la luce di cui avete bisogno. Non esagerate però! È il momento di recuperare le energie fisiche ed intellettuali.
5) La Purificazione (rinnovamento, trasformazione,scoperte): È tempo di rinnovare sé stessi prendendo le decisioni che credete siano meglio per voi senza farvi influenzare da persone o fattori esterni. Avete una buona Energia Vitale per intraprendere questa trasformazione, quindi fatevi coraggio e sfruttate a pieno questo momento.

post-eclipse vibes: the wanderer. "the wanderer is both an end and a beginning. one journey has already come full circle, and as you distill your life experience into sacred memory and put the past and its burdens to rest, the future waits patiently for you to make the next move. remember your wisdom, strength, and whatever personal experiences and skills you have may not help you now. the honest spirit of human inquisitiveness leads you beyond yourself into a new life. this unconscious energy creates a rainbow bridge that rises and greets your feet. it will carry you over the void, as you step, trusting and empowered, into the unknown." from the wildwood tarot 🌿🌻🦋🌲🍃
My last diagnosis I got from my counselor was a bit hard to handle and a weight lift at the same time. I have cognitive distortion. If you don't know what that is, it's a twisted way of thinking! It's when you can't think "normally" and everything is thought to be opposite of what is happening or you just blind out the good. Something happens one time and your mind says it "always" happens or I'm "never" good enough. You dwell on the bad times and ignore the good. You insist the good you do does not count. You jump to conclusions. You automatically think someone is talking, laughing, or looking at you. Picking out your flaws. You constantly point out your flaws and hold onto them. You criticize yourself and others about how you or they should or shouldn't act or respond. You blame yourself for everything. You constantly think "I'm a horrible person". I didn't realize I was doing all those things until I was sent home with papers that read my entire thought process! I can name each thing I say, do, or feel. Unfortunately, it's right. I have a twisted way of thinking. I can't even walk in my living room without tori sometimes. I often leave the mail in the mailbox or the trash bin by the road.
I want you to know that you are not alone in this! I know I'm not.
