Tonight's Black Moon ...

 

... means I'll be making some necessary changes to the things in my life that no longer benefit my future. I'll be cleaning the friends list on Facebook for the monthly cleansing, the blogroll will find those that haven't posted in a while being removed, AND I'll be doing a deep spiritual cleansing to remove the excess negative energy that seems to have attached itself to me once again. Tomorrow when I wake, I'm looking forward to a brighter day, an existence filled with positivity and friends who I know I can trust with my life. Because that is what I've given them... my life. Now having said this, here is the beginning of the weeding, the culling of the chaff from the wheat.

I am not easily intimidated and this last go-round of negative energy will end up hurting others more than it will me. Unfortunately, those that have spoken negatively against me and mine are beginning to experience the fallout from their actions. They are becoming more and more accusatory, more paranoid, just more... they have begun to feel the consequences of the return to sender spells so many of us have put in place to deflect their actions. It doesn't matter if the words they speak or the spells they cast have little or everything to do with me, mine and our tightly knit closed circle. Protection spells work that way, especially when there is an entire community casting the protection magic. And when more than one person *sees* the same outcome before ever discussing it, you KNOW there is truth in that vision.

Since a big deal has been made of my blog post from yesterday where others think I've been stalking their Facebook pages for material to blog about, I'd like to set the record straight. But then again, this is one of those things where I could proclaim anything I want and since the almighty's have already made up their minds, my words are inconsequential. But for those of you who may find yourself in the middle of their latest uproar. Here's the TRUTH of where I got my material for said post and what I do.

Fact: I do NOT stalk or otherwise visit anyone's Facebook page or Blog. They have nothing I'm interested in knowing about. I do NOT use their information for *blogging material*. As a matter of fact, I believed I had blocked all of them so I couldn't see what they post on Facebook, unfortunately, I found out today there has been a glitch with Facebook and many people are seeing where those they had blocked are now once again visible. Not to worry, you have been BLOCKED once again... I'll just make sure I'm more diligent in checking that block list more frequently. You can block me as many times as you choose, unfortunately, as long as we have friends in common you will still see some of the things I post, as I will with yours. You are supposed to be an adult ... Deal with it.

Fact: I have quite a few friends in common with many people I have removed from my Facebook friends list. Some of these common friends feel it is important to keep me up to date on what is happening, being said on Facebook or written in a blog about something I or others in my tribe may be doing in our life. Since sending a PM (private message) to these friends in common, most of the unsolicited advice has stopped. There have been a few who still do it and when they refuse to stop after I've asked once again, they are removed from my friends list. This happened as recently as this morning after I was sent the comments regarding my blog from yesterday.

Fact: I READ!! The newspaper, articles on the internet, BOOKS (gasp!), and even the shit that comes across my Facebook news feed as stupid as some of it is. And I watch TV, even though some of the shows could be considered questionable. I make my own decisions and write about what I FEEL.

Here are a couple more things you may or may not know about me:

Since August 2013, I have made many changes in my life which have turned out positive and productive. I'm too busy with the everyday mundane world to worry about what people are saying or thinking about me. And to be more than honest, I DON'T care what others have to say about me. I'm not in this world to win a popularity contest. I've always been a Bitch and I will be until the day I die. If you can't handle the truth and not just what you perceive to be the truth, you should just walk away now.

This morning in the same message I received giving me the details of how my blog upset so many people, I was called a snake.  Evidently, the person who made this comment didn't know about the snake's power. I used to have a deep fear of snakes and serpents. However, I've been able to work through that fear and have recently found that Snake is one of my totems. Things are ever changing with me and as I work more closely with my Gods/Goddesses, the world as I know it changes as well. My spiritual journey is just that ... a JOURNEY. I don't look for the end of the road, I'm ever searching, ever thirsting and refuse to let myself become stagnant or complacent.

OH! By the way, YOU are the ones with the stalking problems. If you hadn't read my blog you wouldn't felt the need to point out your insecurities and YOUR penchant for keeping up with me and my life. SNAP!

  3. People who behave like high school freshmen should be treated as such. I'm so glad you are cleaning house. You don't need this crap in your life. I commend you my dear.

  5. Sound like paranoid is the key word. You are obviously doing something right! Keep it up! A couple of things you said yesterday...was that you would probably be stepping on some toes...Haha and secondly, how someone is going to get hurt, from the nonsense. Some have already...but I love how you are standing up...because if even one person wakes up and sees the bulIshit its worth it. I applaud you! Xoxo

  6. Well said! And, remember that Snake medicine is very powerful, very healing. It is all about rejuvenation as they shed their skin. I dress the way I need to dress to do the things I need to do. Just because I dress casually when I am sculpting Muses or in a black shirt when I am doing aromatherapy oils (black hides oil spots) doesn't mean that I am not invoking the Goddess because I am not it witchy, ritual clothing. Thank you for both yesterday's blog and today's.

  7. Thanks Serena, this has been a challenge. I'm more than tired of keeping my mouth shut and letting them believe they've bullied me into silence. I am Vickie ...hear me ROAR! LOL!!!

  8. Sharon! Thank YOU for stopping by, reading and commenting. I appreciate your input. Hopefully more people will begin to realize that just because someone believes and tells you they are all knowing doesn't necessarily mean it, then will be able to find their own road to travel without walking in someone else's footprints.

  9. Sorry to hear all this is cropping up once again. For some reason I've never feared snakes. My sister has a pet snake I visit with quite a bit and he is pure love. Funny thing about snakes/serpents and the feminine symbolism they possess; I notice all the boys/men in the family (including my sons) seem nervous around the pet snake while the girls/women naturally gravitate toward him. Best of luck in your re-cleansing... love ya!

  10. Thanks Darlin! This past week sure was a challenging one, BUT! I've made some changes, did some cleansing and adjusting and my world had righted itself on it's axis once again. As far as this creeping up again... eh it happens. Some people have no respect for others and when they get full of themselves they must act out. It is what it is. There was a big thing a few months ago about a few calling others out on what was perceived to be blatant acts of plagiarism. It was nasty and drove a huge wedge in the community. Now these same people are calling others out on copying crafts ideas when in reality it is these accusers who have done the copying. And I mean really! WTF is that all about?? If craft ideas weren't *copied* we'd have NO crafts.

  12. Thanks Gina! Sometimes I don't feel very wise. But I'm learning ... slow and steady.

  13. Some things I've noticed, since social media has become so popular, and I am really not sure how to express my thoughts on it. Being a pagan, I have been scouring the internet for like minded people, since I became active on the internet, in 2000. I've found, sooo many wonderful people over the years. Some, I have made life long lasting friendships with, both online, and in the real world. The world is changing, no doubt about that. I've always been one to roll with changes...but I see something about paganism, reaching a main stream...acceptance, that I am a bit hesitant about. While, on one hand, I can rejoice, as a pagan, that it is getting the recognition it deserves, and the *muggles* of the world ( for lack of a better term) are becoming more accepting...I also, hate that it is becoming an accepted main stream religion...because...I left main stream religion...for a reason. With paganism, getting a more main stream edge to it...these, that are spewing on and on with their *vast amounts of knowledge*...are giving it that *christian-like* feel to it ( for me ). I am not wiccan, so I do not follow the wiccan rede...but I am a Witch...so as I read through and see some of the things they spout about, and tell people how to think, feel, and do...the Witch's Creed, keeps playing over in my head..." Hear now the words of the Witch's, The *Secrets* we hid in the night.....By hidden quintessence we know them, and Will and KEEP SILENT and Dare."
    Maybe I am overthinking it. Maybe this isn't the right place to express this at...but, its literally been knawing at me for a couple of years now.

  14. Serena, I completely get where you are coming from and agree to a point on keeping silent. Keeping silent to me means I don't share the *mysteries* of a ritual performed either as a solitary or in a coven or circle setting. I belong to a coven, we do not speak of anything that happens IN coven, outside of coven with anyone other than coven mates. I also belong to two circles. In my experience circles are a little less formal and to speak of the events after the ritual is over with someone who may not have been attending is not among the familiar *taboos*. I have been able to comfortably share some of my *circle* experiences with others without the fear I've divulged secrets that would have been better kept quiet.

    I'm all for Paganism to be brought into the mainstream of every day life. I'd love to see a Pagan High Priest/ess do the invocation for a baseball game or NASCAR race. I'd love to know my granddaughters can go to public school without the fear of being bullied for their belief. I'd really like it a LOT if people were educated enough to stop believing we are evil.

    I had so much more written but decided I'd save the things I wrote in a response and just blog about it at a later date...

  15. I look forward to that blog post! Would definitely like to hear more about this. I agree seeing a pagan high priest/ess do a public invocation, would be spectacular. This is something, I am torn on. Of course, being seen as non evil, would also be nice. ;)
