Everything Changes

Today I have been thinking about how everything changes, and how nothing remains static, even things you think don't change do.... 

Eventually the river will erode the rocks, making them pebbles and then even further into sand. The rocks that fell into the river at the top of the mountain, will eventually become the sandy beach on a tropical island. 

Nothing remains the same..... and that is true of me, I am not the same person I was when I was 20, 30, 40 .... I have adapted into the role of wife, mother and grandmother... I was not taught how to be a wife, I was guided by the examples around me.  There are no exams on parenting, you face each day with the hope that you are doing the right thing for you and your child. 

It's the same with your faith, when I started this Path, I was a Witch, I'm still a Witch but I'm not the same as I was, I was studying Wicca and quickly realised that wasn't for me, I didn't 'diss Wicca but felt that all the rules and rituals sucked the joy out of it for me... I'm still not a great one for following doctrine on what should be on my Altar, but I have realised that I do need a bit of structure or I'm apt to not do anything at all..... 

I have learnt to flow with what I feel I need, at one point I was Solitary and didn't feel that I needed anyone else to help me to practise my Craft, at another I was surrounded by a Coven sharing ideas and practises.... I am again a Solitary and whilst I don't want nor need anyone else around 24/7 I do miss being able to discuss my Path and get feedback, but as I've evolved so has my Path, I'm still a Witch, but now I don't feel the need to label myself as a Kitchen Witch, Hedge Witch etc.  In fact, I don't believe their is a name for my practise.... which is great as I've long felt that labels were for food items and not for people. 

Today, I have purchased two books written by Thich Nhat Hanh and I'm really looking forward to reading them..... but that doesn't make me a Buddhist.... 

Everything changes...... nothing remains without change.....

Starting Anew - 18th July 2018



It has been a long time since I have felt the urge to put finger to keyboard and blog / journal anything, but recently I was asked by my Higher Self via a message to do just that.... that posed the problem what the heck to blog/journal about.

I have spent the last 4 years hiding my authentic self due to having my confidence and faith well and truly crushed by certain someone's, but as the image says - that needs to be forgotten, forgiven and I need to move on. 

I will never know the why's and being honest, right now I don't even want to know, it's enough that I've finally forgiven myself and stopped blaming myself for the fact that it happened. 

Guilt and low self esteem is a horrendous thing, being an Empath to boot just adds to the mix.  I have finally realised that there are always going to be people that will believe the lies and those people are not ones I can help.... until they find out for themselves where the truth lies. 

My job and journey is to be true to ME and only me and the Divine need to worry about what I've done, doing, or will do..... it's my life, my Soul and my journey to walk as it needs to be walked! 

So, what exactly is my Path, what journey is my Soul to take?  Well, tonight I will meditate on that question, I will open myself up to the discovery of something wonderful and I will 'look forward to what's coming next'.... 

One thing I know is that I have allowed my light to dim, now is not the time to make excuses and hide, but to rise Phoenix like and shine my light ..... 

love n blessings to all
