We are humans therefore we ache,
we are not some robot
who has no feelings,
who cannot cry,
who cannot feel hate.
We are humans who all wish,
we wish for the same thing,
we wish for love,
we wish for comfort,
we wish for someone to ease the pain.
We are humans,
we all have the same things
from a heart to a mind,
to blood racing in our veins,
so it is time to stop this war that is filled with hate.
The world works in mysterious ways, this saying has been around for quite some time and in all honesty, it certainly does work in mysterious ways. There are so many different times in our lives that each and every one of us will encounter specific block roads in our lives and then see the other door, per se, of where we are meant to be next. This can happen in every aspect of our lives from career, to love, to our own spiritual growth. And for most, this can be terrifying, due to the reason that some of us are terrified of things either not going the way we want it to or terrified by the fact that the very thing we are wanting is actually happening.
There are signs that make there appearance in our lives, to show us what will be happening and where we will lead us (not always clear, but it does give us hints). For the most part, most people tend to not even realize that these are signs and they just wave them away thinking that they are just a nuisance. In reality, when you begin to see the signs appear over and over again, that is when you need to realize that this is what is going to happen. The Universe is trying to help you in so many ways, and for the most part, its way is usually pretty subtle. It could be various little hints such as interview positions in a specific location, or it could be that gut feeling that you keep having about a specific person, or it could even be the 11:11 sign that most people see on a daily basis. These hints are here to guide you and they are here to help you get back onto the path that has been laid out for you.
When it comes to someone receiving signs, it can happen in different ways for each person. One person might receive the sign as 11:11 over and over again, or they might the hints through what they have heard slip from someone’s mouth or even from the radio. Another person might get a sensation rushing through their entire being and a whiff of a flowery perfume-like aroma may fill the air around them, and that aroma may give them a hint as to what is about to change in their life. Everyone is different, just the like how the Universe is different for everyone when they are trying to communicate back and forth.
The Universe is truly a unique mysterious place that holds the magic to our lives and how it tries to help us through our every day lives. Don’t take it for granted when the Universe tries to help you through the various hints it gives you, for those hints can help you learn what you are supposed to learn, and make it through this lifetime safely.
Dear future children,
You are not born, you are not even conceived yet; instead you are just glimmer in my eye and a thought in my mind and I have not met your dad yet. If one day I am blessed to have you, there are a few things I would like to say to you.
If one day you are a boy and you wish to play with dolls and trucks, that is fine by me, in fact count me in. There is nothing wrong with that. If one day you are a girl and wish to do the same thing, I will play tea parties with you and your transformers. When you have become a teen and you have started to figure out who you are attracted to and have a hard time telling me that you are gay or lesbian, I promise you that you can tell me this and I will love you no matter what. My lesson to you is love is love; it doesn’t matter if you are straight or gay, if you love someone with all of your heart then that is all that matters. This world is cruel, there will be others who will judge you, who will try to degrade you, who will harm you in anyway possible; just remember that you will have your dad and I by your side and will love you unconditionally. The only thing that matters in finding a partner besides being in love is compatibility, respect, passion, and finding someone who will push you to grow and become the amazing person you are meant to be.
Respect is a big thing that you will learn as you grow up. You will learn to respect us, your parents. You will learn to respect other family members and friends, you will learn to respect strangers. Most importantly, you will learn to respect yourself. Never judge another human being for their opinion, never judge another human being for what they believe in, and never judge a person for who they love. It is not your place to judge someone.
Life is about finding yourself and finding your personal legend. And I guarantee you that it will get rough and you might feel like you are lost, but you will always have friends and family there to help guide you. And remember you can always ask for guidance to whoever you may choose to worship whether it be God, nature, a Greek God or Goddess, Buddha , or if you follow the druid path of your ancestors. At all times there will be someone to help guide you.
Just remember that you will have the love and support of your parents, friends and other relatives who will always be by your side.
Many of you know that I’m a spiritual person. I believe that there is a higher power, God; and I also believe in a wide variety of things. I believe in reincarnation, spirit guides, ancient traditions of my ancestors, meditation, prayers, combining the philosophy and spiritual side to my life, that everyone has a purpose and lesson to learn among other things. And many of you know that I come from a diverse family that ranges from agnostic to religious to spiritual. I love my family, and I wouldn’t trade them for anything. But the ones who are religious don’t realize that I am completely different from them, especially when it comes to my spiritual path. They break the first rule of their religion, “Do not judge.” Yet they judge. And that’s not right.
I do not judge a soul on their spiritual path. It is something that they are discovering for themselves. They are discovering what they believe and who they are on a soul level. They are allowed to do such a thing because of free will and also it is what feels right to them.
When you feel like me, the black sheep; don’t worry what others say to you to try to change your mind. Let them say what they want, but you can still be who you are. You can still believe in all the things you believe. You can still be you. In fact, just be you.
For me, I’m brave and I’m allowed to be me. Are you ready to do the same thing?
When you look at me,
What do you see?
Do you see lost hours of sleep,
Or the scars on my back?
When you look at me,
What do you see?
Do you see the trials that I’ve faced,
Or just the color of my skin?
You see, I may just be another “white” woman to you.
But that’s all you see.
Several of my ancestors were raped and sold.
They became slaves.
They escaped their habitats for a new place to live.
But everywhere they went,
They were caught and sold once again.
You see, I come from a long line of strong men and women.
From Jewish, druid, and animism.
When you look at me,
What do you see?
Do you look past the color of my skin?
The very color that makes the difference between you and I.
Underneath this skin, lies a heart and blood.
Just like you.
We’re not that different,
You and I.
Tell me, when you look at me now,
What do you see?
Hiding in our homes,
Hiding in the forests.
This fear that is attacking us,
Is driving us away.
Driving fathers, mothers, sons and daughters into hiding.
You took an oath.
A oath to protect,
A oath to lead.
Yet, you do no such thing.
You hide in your home,
Afraid to come out.
Afraid to do the job you promised to do.
You wonder why no one likes you,
You wonder why no one wants you to be here anymore.
Once a person stands up against you,
They are suddenly shut up.
That’s not supposed to happen.
Stop hiding in the house,
Stop lying to the people.
Do the job you’re supposed to do,
And protect them.
Otherwise people will leave this country,
And you will lose your following.
Pretty much every living human being on this planet harnesses magic inside of them. We harness the magic to heal ourselves, the environment, and others. Some have untapped the magic inside and are using it on a daily basis. I’m one of those people. I have untapped the magic that lies inside my heart, body and soul. I use the magic that has been passed down to me from my mom’s lineage to help others and the environment. I use it to heal those around me (as you can see from the Herbalist Advice posts), and also use the magic to heal the environment that we live in, to protect it.
In order to untap the magic inside of you, what you need to do is light some candles, smudge yourself (optional), and talk to your guardian angels/spirit guides. Your guardians/guides are those who protect you, those who guide you down the paths you are meant to take. These guardians/guides will show you the magic that is inside of you. They will show you what you are meant to do with it. Everyone is going to be different. You may end up being a natural healer (like myself) or you may be a protector of something.
Now, most people (predominantly Christians, Catholics, and some Judaism) will see this as if it is connected to Satanism. I can assure you that it isn’t. God has produced guardians/guides to help everyone, he even produced all the magic that is inside all of us. It is only evil, if you use it for evil. Never ever use the magic that God has given you for evil. Use it for good. Use it to protect. Use it to love.
