I have listened to that voice to many times. No More! I will be bold. I will be bright and I will be seen. To proceed is to be. Allowing my nothingness to be something.. Anything. The rest will sort itself out. 💙
Brightest Blessings Sisters and Brothers,
While it is usually Christians and other mainstream religions we hear them say in rough times to “Never lose your faith” or “God will never give you more than you can handle.” This is also true for pagans except to change the wording a little to something like”Your Gods and/or Goddesses will never give you anything in your life that you can not handle without their help.”
As many of you know I have had many negative things happen in my life starting the Beginning of last August with my mom going into a coma and crossing to the Summerlands and me trying to cope with it. I also found out a dear friend of mine has breast cancer and an infection that could have possibly killed he. My oldest daughter has been diagnosed with a temporal malformation which in the right set of circumstances could kill her. Also, my husband was laid off work this past Monday. Last but not least the small restaurant I work at, business has slowed way down because of the time of year it is. so I am not working as many hours.
To be honest, with you dear ones all these things happening had put me into a deep depression but never once have I turned away from my spirit guides, gods and goddesses. I may have blocked their words of wisdom and comfort out to wallow in my own self-pity but I still believed deep within my spirit they are there to help me through this.
After reading a new book, written and published by my dearest spirit sister I came away with a different outlook on some of what has been going on in my life. She was concerned that someone had hexed or cursed me for some reason. Through talking with her, I discovered I was cursing myself with my depression thus bring about more negative things in my life and in those of my loved ones.
Remember it is not our Gods and/or Goddesses that give up on us it is we that give up on them and thus give up hope of things getting better. So with this in mind, I am taking a spiritual/mental/physical health day. To accomplish this, I plan on napping or resting as much as I can, doing a couple of intense meditations and a ritual to help turn the negatives in my life into positives. I will ask the divine Triple Goddess and my spirit guides for guidance, Mother Earth to help re-ground and center, RA for his warmth and energy to motivate me into living this lifetime to its fullest, Archangel Gabriel to wrap me in his wings of comfort and love and Archangel Micheal to protect me with his sword and shield while I find my way back to me. I also plan to re-dedicate myself to the Pagan path I have chosen, give all my Chakras and home a good cleansing with White Sage and Sweet Grass, Goddesses and God I chose as patron deities and The Craft. I might not get this all done today but I will before the week is out. I feel it is important to set realistic goals for one’s self so I Will break my goals down to be accomplished throughout this week.
