Lady Beltane Is Home

Thank you all for your kind wishes and words, for the candles lit and healing energies and thoughts sent. I am still off duty by doctor’s orders until Monday around 10:00 AM CST. In the meantime, I have lots of loving to give my familiars and they have missed me and I them. They are some of the best things in my life to bring me happiness, joy, and unconditional love. I am truly grateful to Epona for bring them into my life. I also need to spend some much needed and overdue time with my beloved husband. WE need to talk to finish bring stress down in our individual lives that have been directly messing up our life as a loving couple who spend time together and talk about things besides dinner, shopping, work, and our girls. In other words, rekindle the spark that brought us together almost 19 years ago. I know I had begun take=ing him for granted for a few years now and it got worse with my fibromyalgia diagnoses about a year after he had a very traumatic thing happen in his life the drugged on for over 2 years. You might be asking why I am sharing some of my personal life with all of you. The reason is not only am I here to co-run the coven, school, and 2 websites with Priestess Hypatia and others. I am also here for you to talk to about anything you might need and ear to lesson too and to show you my life is not a bed full of beautiful flowers and wonderful positive things all the time. Just like you, I too go through rough patches with my children, husband, and friends. Becoming a High Priestess does not magickally change a person into a Zen Guru or anything. Next week I will be starting to be in the chatroom once every day for an hour or two for anyone who wants to chat. In the chatroom, we can even go into an area for a private discussion. During the time I am in there for you, I will be turning off the constant feed so if we stay in the main room no one else can see what we are talking about unless they log in at the same time we are there. This is something I have felt I should be doing for a while now but wanted to get some of my emotional problems worked out first. I have been talking the talk of a spiritual leader but I admit I have not been walking the walk for that I owe each and every one of you an apology. I promise you to start walking the walk better as your Spiritual Leader. I am an ordained minister meaning anything that I talk about with only you present is confidential and even if I am made to appear in court or have to give a deposition or to testify for or against you I do not by law have to say anything about what we discussed even by email whether you just read or follow the websites and are not a student or even a coven members these laws of us talking apply if you name me you spiritual leader either in the chatroom before we talk or in the email you may write me,. You will be noticing a Disclaimer in every email starting Monday basically stating it is a confidential email from Witches of The Craft and/or and/or Heart’s Spirit Coven. On your lessons, it will also list me, Priestess Hypatia, and Dawn of the Day as we are the ones review lessons at the present time. This brings another layer of privacy for those still in the broom closet as anyone else reading an email for one of us is doing so illegally.
