Shamanism and Wicca

Shamanism is often referred to as the first “religion.” Shamans were considered wise, the healers of their people. Shamans discovered, through the use of herbs, hallucinogens, and eventually drums how to transcend our physical plane and venture out into the spiritual realm.

Interpreting the Crone

Most of my days are spent running around, trying to make sure my three littles don’t hurt themselves or each other. It can be exciting and fun, or exhausting and frightening. I am a Mother.

The Low-Energy Wiccan

One of the beautiful things about Wicca is how you can tailor it to fit you like a glove. It’s all about intent. It’s a connection to whatever you feel connected to, be it a deity, deities, or even nature. I feel the connection. It’s much more than spells and crystals.

A Low, A Stream, and Some Tears

I’ve been low. Lower than I have been in years. It’s not uncommon with Bipolar disorder. You have your highs, and you have your lows. Both have cost me. A lot. But this time, I had an amazing support system that was in place to help me push through. When I didn’t have children, itContinue reading “A Low, A Stream, and Some Tears”

Off-Centered and Imbalanced

Today is day four of a monster migraine. It also happens to be my birthday. For the last few days I have drawn shut all the curtains, turned off every light, and subjected my family to living in a cave of silence. I tried my usual routine of water and caffeine to no avail. IContinue reading “Off-Centered and Imbalanced”

When the Well is Dry

I go to work with a smile on my face. I  laugh and play with my girls, andContinue reading “When the Well is Dry”
