I have been doing research and participating in some of the ‘Mother Nature and its signs and energy’s type thinking. I have declared I am now Wiccan. I come from a Catholic background, a practicing one until I heard the priest say same-sex marriages were wrong. Thank you very much bye. Even more, justified these past years.
I have a few friends who regularly participate in moon ceremonies and live their lives according to the earth’s energy. I don’t know everything about it. I just know how it feels for me.
I bought a book, oh I think I have already posted, ok well then an update. Neil has been having incredibly bad luck with things breaking down on him and so many obstacles and money in the way of fixing them.
Neil and I have been doing a lot of chatting and I am trying to make changes, be more attentive, and be nicer. Yes I can be a bit mean. I am sure everyone can be. Most of my moods come from whether I feel trusting or not. SO I am trying but in the meantime, I am trying to be helpful.
SO I say to Neil,
“Hey, it is a Super Moon tomorrow night let’s do a moon ceremony for us tomorrow.”
He has only seen me do it once over at friends when I did the ceremony to bring good luck into their homes. I thought that this could be a very healing moon for both Neil and I.
SO I brought my basket of moon ceremony objects, special coloured candles, stones and gems, incense, smudging sticks. Neil isn’t really into this stuff and always jumped at the chance to be home alone while I celebrated the moon. It was a nice change from his voodoo views on it.
June is the Strawberry Moon, I did look it up and felt it was a good one for Neil and I to do together. It is a moon to help you with personal growth, it is a moon to remove negative energy, both external and especially internally, which is something Neil really needs right now. I explained everything I had and I read from my moon book and used gems that were specifically used for each of our issues.
It was so lovely. And I told him, this could be something we do together. This is a good way to heal one’s self as It always gives you things to ponder, to stove toward, build self-confidence, and to dispel negative energy.
I had to do it. I had to buy something for Neil that would reflect our moon ceremony. I found that Labradorite suited his needs. Assists with self-confidence and positive energy and is supposed to be a good stone to ward off anxiety and negativity. It is on a cord necklace and looks stunning on him. Neil’s anxiety is through the roof and has started having panic attacks.
Ok CHristie, enough giving him a hard time and help him instead. So that is what I am trying to do.
I have a friend who did tarot card readings for Neil and I . While I was busy introducing Moon ceremonies to a new friend, I suddenly thought of finding tarot cards of my own, and that too can be something Neil and I do together, even if he isn’t 100% into it. I think he will actually look forward to it, I know I do. The cards we picked were uncanny for both of us. HIs reflected his hard times and then need for positivity, Mine, well, was a revenge card. Mine was a relationship card. Too fitting when I explored and expressed my limitations or bad traits.
My last post “Freedom” explores my issues with friendships and relationships. Am I angry and seeking revenge? Is it a warning card? That is certainly how I took it. Then I asked myself, what could I change? It talks about relationships. SO in my mind, it was telling me to let go of thoughts of revenge and focus on healing relationships or healing myself to save relationships.
I find doing this a great activity to grow with, get direction from, look for universal signs that things are ok, things that help show positivity.
For instance, Neil is having such bad luck. The day was miserable and grey. As we drove along there was a foggy patch of sun. I said,
“ Neil look, the sun is peeking out for you, it’s sending you positivity, hope. Everything is going to work out.”
Something else happened that I pointed out to Neil was signs from the universe.
It’s peaceful, life-directing, and meaningful, stop and smell the roses, and manifest good things. Faith? Religion? A way of living?. It is comforting and it is trustworthy. NO one has had fights, no one has had to die, no one has been hurt, it focuses on good vibes and giving your life a chance to take control of your life and the strength to work on the hard stuff. It brings out energy that is positive and focused on personal growth. I have always been spiritual, on my terms. I always look to nature to help me through things.
Am I wrong? Am I right? Do I still pray? Yes, it goes like this,
“Dear God or Higher Power or Mother Nature, I need your help.”
Have all my bases covered? -this is a funny.
It is a way of life. A life filled with personal growth. That is what I follow.
Welcome to my blog. I have been journal writing for years. I took a course in Creative writing and found I enjoy writing short stories and poetry. I write more when I am hypomanic or manic.
I went into Rehab for Alcohol Addictions and have been sober for fourteen years.
Shortly after I quit drinking I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2, I have since been diagnosed with Bipolar 1.
I enjoy talking about my story, for people to learn or relate. I try and have a healthy lifestyle and try to use my coping strategies. Life is just too boring without Bipolar, it is a blessing but yet sometimes a curse.
I am currently working on a book and dream of publishing one day.
I am so excited to have found Wordpress.
This is my new adventure.
