Darkness Before Dawn

We were soooo young when we got engaged, too young for sure!! We were a couple of the 80's, baby, ready to take on the world with no fear! We got engaged on March 18th, 1988 and planned a beautiful June wedding. 

As I look at the innocent girl in this photograph, full of rich hope and marvelous dreams for her future, yet knowing how life is actually going to turn out for her nearly thirty years later, realizing it will be nothing like her expectations, wishes, or dreams, 
I can still, in all honesty, say...

I wouldn't change a thing! 

We were wed, much to my parents disappointment, outside of the temple. As Mormons we were taught to aspire to a temple marriage. We refused to follow the crowd and conform. We planned a wedding where all of our loved ones could attend and celebrate with us, none would be excluded from sharing in our joy! June 10th, 1988 we vowed to work together for better or worse, in sickness and in health, til death do us part. Vows we've taken very sincerely!…

Pandora's Beautiful Box

"They gave Pandora a box. Prometheus begged her not to open it. She opened it. Every Evil to which human flesh is heir came out of it. The last thing to come out of the box was hope. It flew away." ~ Kurt Vonnegut 

On election night while the majority of Americans were glued to their T.V’s watching the demise of our nation with the election of, to put it in Jon Stewarts words, ‘FuckFace Von Clownstick’, I was in a bedroom with my husband acknowledging the demise of our marriage. Needless to say, it was a horrific night for me and most of America. 
I went to bed that night still believing with all my heart that Hillary would win. To say I was surprised the next morning seeing the results is putting it mildly. Chevy Chase from Christmas Vacation spoke my feelings precisely when he said, "If I woke up tomorrow morning with my head sewn to the carpet I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now!" Wednesday, November 9th was filled with many, many tears; tears for a glass c…

Goddess Warriors Wearing White

“We women suffragists have a great mission ~ 
the greatest mission ever known. It is to free half the human race, and through that freedom to save the rest…. 
I would rather be a rebel than a slave.”                   ~ Emmeline Pankhurst
“On October 23rd, 1915, over 250,000 suffragists marched down Firth Avenue in Manhattan, fighting for their right to vote. While some of the suffrage groups present chose to wear colors unique to their group, many of them chose to wear white. Just over a century later, feminists supporting Hillary Clinton are promising to do the same on Election Day… What’s the significance of the color white? According to the Belmont-Paul Woman’s Equality National Monument website, the National Woman’s Party chose three colors to represent their organization: purple, gold, and white. Purple was chosen to represent the ‘royal glory of womanhood,’ gold was for the ‘crown of victory,’ and white was chosen to honor ‘purity in home and politics.’” ~ April Jones

Do You Believe In Magick?

"And watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magick will never find it."
~ Roald Dahl

Magick in this post is defined as ~ Knowing and using your own pure power. Magick will always be spelled with a ‘k’ in this blog to separate illusion (magic) from power (magick)! Any time you read the word magick or magickal in my works, you can just as easily substitute the word power, or powerful, because the meaning will stay the same. Power is magick and magick is power!
Magick is naturally a part of who you are. It is the right, and the authority, within you to create the destiny you honestly seek. Magick happens when you live your Life consciously with complete awareness, genuine authenticity, and total integrity standing strong in the eternal truths of kindness, compassion, empathy, understanding, acceptance, and True Love. You are a glorious and momentous magician! You have…

The Wounded Healer

Wounded healers are spiritual warriors who have found the courage to defeat the darkness of their souls. Awakening and rising from the depth of their deepest fears, like a phoenix rising from the ashes. Reborn with a wisdom and strength that creates a light that shines bright enough to help, encourage, and inspire others out of their own darkness. ~ Melanie Koulouris

Wounded healers are not born and they are not made. Wounded healers create themselves through conquering adversity, by trial and error, and by rising above the shadowy side of life in order to let their Sacred Light lead their way, while still keeping the darkness within reach. They conquer their fears, and find a way to speak their truth even when they are afraid, and even when it is not well-liked. In doing so, they shine their Light for others who are lost and feeling alone, then in return, their own inner Light re-ignites with a renewed purpose, a purpose greater than they ever could have imagined.
