I’m a mother, an artist, writer, professional Tarot reader and a witch! I‘m ordained through the Universal Life Church, so I am Reverend Amanda- which makes me feel special and more myself than ever. I’ve had a difficult past, but becoming Pagan and a witch has turned my life around. My blog posts are about a range of topics — always witchy related and always in support of one on the path towards self sovereignty. In addition to being a blogger, I write for Witch Way Magazine (I write the Pagan parenting column, Raising Little Witchlings, as well as contribute an assortment of articles regularly.)
I recently celebrated my 31st birthday (May 10th), and it got me thinking about past lives, and wondering:
How old is my soul?
The idea that I have lived in multiple bodies, over who knows how many years can be a bit mind boggling. I’ve had past-life readings done a few times, and they actually matched up to visions I’ve had of memories when I’ve gone into guided meditations to explore my soul’s past. Based on my experiences, past life readings by two totally separate readers, and a number of tarot card spreads, I know this much:
I was a witch in at least one past life, and during such time I was very powerful, well-known, and healed many people.
I died young in a few of my past lives
Romance has been an issue for my soul for at least 3 lifetimes
Having children has been a struggle for my soul in at least 2 lifetimes
The internet is a fascinating thing. It’s incredible in and of itself, but incorporating magick makes it even more awe inspiring. You can cast spell online, you can perform rituals online, and you can create a sacred space online. I would like to do the latter, but I can’t do it on my own! I think of my blog as a sacred cyberspace but it’s a place where I share my story, where I share my wisdom, where I seek to educate- enlighten if you will. But I want to know what you’re thinking. I want you to have a place to “go” to respond to my blogs or share your thoughts on the topic I’ve written about. I want you to be able to voice your story, your questions. And most of all I want that place to be sacred- which means there is no fear of judgement or rejection. There’s no degradation or even snide remarks.
I’m a Witch, so when I want to do something, and that something is feasible and for the good of others and will not cause extensive harm, then I find a way to do it! And I have!
It’s a closed group and you must answer some questions before you’re admitted. I will review every post to ensure that no one is going to ever be made to feel uncomfortable and have a zero tolerance cyber bullying policy. This group is for my readers, and anyone else with a passion for witchcraft.
I decided to opt for a social learning platform for the group. That means I can have educational units- this is where I can post resources and notes expanding upon topics I’ve covered in my blog. These are optional! Magical Musings School of Witchcraft (MMSW) is in the works as well, so the units aren’t going to go into great detail. MMSW will offer free classes, then I’ll have tiers where you can get a more thorough education as well as interaction with me for an affordable price. The units will expand on things I could only touch upon as well as provide links to websites and books about the topic so you could learn more on your own if you so choose.
Who is this group for?
As of right now, the group is like any other online group. But what will make it special is having people join. The energy of people from all over the world, people of any race any gender any social or economic class that all have two things in common: a passion for Witch things and the desire to learn more from our peers. Learning and connecting are two major aspects of witchcraft and when you add love to the mix you get sacredness, IMO. This Love is Love for life, love for witchcraft, love for people we have never met but know we can go online and have someone to vent to. Will you help me make this a reality?
As witches, we are naturally drawn to the outdoors. We are nurturers, mothers, caregivers, healers, and have honed our abilities to walk between the worlds. All of these qualities are exercised in gardening – whether it’s a rock garden, a pond, a succulent or zen garden, flower garden, vegetable garden – I could go on and on.
Building your fairy faith is one that takes time, patience, wisdom, and forethought. It was years before I decided to make a faery altar, officially inviting my Good Neighbors into my home. With the coming of spring, I had some faery musings I wanted to share with you.
Greetings my Gracious Group of Grateful Gals, Guys, and everyone in-between! I must apologize, I hadn’t realized that my scheduled post never published! But, as they say, better late than never! Remember the Magic That’s […]
