The In-Between Places

Misty Autumn afternoons… Where the magick tucked in the in-between places, cannot help but spill out. Where the thinning veil feels ever the more present.

If you know how to gaze into the mist, certain hidden things can be seen on such a day.

The Way Through

The {Way Through} doesn’t always look like we expect it, and it certainly doesn’t come when called upon… It eventually comes from going deep inside ourselves and sitting with our confusion, with our questions, and with our thrashing.

The {Way Through} comes when we have silenced ourselves, given up our relentless questioning and surrendered to the Nothing. Then, of course then, is when our Truth comes rushing in; like a fresh gust of Air, like a wave hitting you in the face.

There it is.

The {Way Through}.

The Blood-Thorn Witch

Beneath the Sun and Moon,
Rooted deep in Shadow,
Always reaching up to the Stars.

Rose thorns and Blackthorn wood for the Blood-Thorn Witch.

Tis the season, the veil is thinning.

An Altar For October

AnAltarForOctober2017

Hello sweet October: How I’m elated to be with the chill in your air, the letting go of the leaves in your trees, and the quieting after the harvest season before the blanketing of snow.

This is our Waning Time. The thinning of the Veil and the season of remembrance. Like the trees we are to let go and let rest until the next promising bud of Spring.

Giving Back What Isn’t Ours To Carry

I’ve come to the Rich Waters.
To the Mother Womb of depths;
to return something that was not mine to carry.

I’ve climbed to the Windy Peaks.
To Father Sky’s vast expanse;
to release something that was not mine to carry.

I’ve pressed my face to the Dark Earth.
To the fecund under belly;
to bury something that was not mine to carry.

This was never mine to carry,
and so I let it go back into the World.

Rebuilding Altars

Dedicating them to The Great Mother:

To the Dark Goddesses,
to the Inner Flame of Re-Creation,
to standing unapologetically in Truth.

In Truth.

Let the rest burn away.

All That We Can Sense But Cannot See

It can be so simple; a sound made sacred, a lingering fragrance observed, a few words strung together in Prayer.

Ritual is when time is held still, for a moment, and our attention is turned to what is right in front of us, to what we are offering right now beyond ourselves.

Allowing a natural exchange with the breath, with stillness, and with what we can only sense but often cannot see.
