Once again; I TALK TOO MUCH!!! lol! had to put the rest on a 2nd post:
They are still young, but they LOVE to do this with me. Mostly now, as I've gotten even MORE involved in my career and in training, and also started at an online Witchschool, the time before I go to sleep is perfect... (because its quiet! lol) This is my time. I've learned to not feel bad or guilty about the 'seemingly' small amount of time I spend in Spirit... it is definitely the quality of the experience, and not the quantity. I learned how to reach this spiritual place even faster through the studying of the Shamans. The Shamanic Journey is a very short read, but had an awesome effect on my ability to reach the god and goddess, the spirits, guides and helpers...(ALL of my Shamanic journeying is completely herb & chemical free btw!) lol. I had to say that. Some feel that it's needed to reach the plane... I have found a phenominal power within myself to fulfill my spiritual needs. And I go along my mundane life, with full understanding that my children will not be here forever, and this is their time.... and that's why mom has to work so hard now. One day, I will look back during a full ritual and remember these days and love them. The mind is the most powerful, the heart is where your mind can rest. It is also wonderful to journey before I go to sleep, as many times, the guides will follow me into my dreams. THOSE are the finest experiences. Just be free and know that it won't stay so hard for very long.
Love & Light Mechelle. Namaste
MM Mechelle! Sorry for late reply. I haven't been online in a while. I will be very honest and tell you that I don't have enough time in the day and hardly any left over for myself. By the time the day is done, and the kids are in bed... it's 10pm and I just want to crash. As for my practice, it has had to evolve into a new pattern. I truly don't have time for long rituals to show the honor and love for the God and Goddess. So, that is saved for very special Sabats and when I can coax someone into babysitting for me.... it doesn't always happen, So for me, I found within my soul, through quiet meditation, that I can reach the Deities and in that meditative state of mind, I can and do have time for Them nightly. I never forget them. I think of them often throughout my day. I ask for favors and love and whatever I need at any time...with my soul... I would LOVE to be able to go outside in the moonlight or even the sunlight for a full ritual. I do take my children out for fullmoon rituals on occasion... of course with them, the rite is condensed and changed some.
Hun it's quite easily done, if you would like to know how go to this site and read how to copy and paste, http://kathys-comments.com/ , then if you pass the cursor over most the graphics I send and click on them it will take you to the site I source them from. Blessed be Celticwitch
Why am I always right, I just knew you would come to me with the hardest problem of all, "matters of the heart", Hun I do not know the reasons behind what has happened in your relationship nor do I want, I understand little of the male of the species, there stomach and what hangs beneath it appear to me to be there prime motivators. I have love spells but refuse to use them for who would want a man following you around like a doe eyed puppy because he's been enchanted plus it goes against my primary rule, "never interfere with freewill". Hun in saying this I am sorry but if he has moved on it's time for you to do the same, true love awaits you for it wasn't this this time, if it's meant to be he'll return but ask yourself, can you ever trust him again. I will ask the Goddess to help your heart find love. Blessed be Celticwitch
