    fiber craft for grounding

    This past year, my relationship with crochet grew tenuous. What used to be my saving grace left me feeling disconnected. I found solace in other fiber arts as well as journaling, but crochet was my first. It was special. I missed it, but the inspiration was…gone. In 2019 when I was on bedrest with my…

    CW: alcoholism, death, suicidal thoughts Edit: just want to add this addendum that I am feeling ok in my life now, and am quite happy at times. The state of the world and society is easy to drown in, but I am doing my best to educate myself and teach my kids. I just wanted…

    portals and prayers journal: prayers to everything

    Outside of the portal entries the other side of this journal includes prayers. Prayers to deity, animal spirits, plants, my higher self, my inner child, archetypes, colors, places, spirit guides, a piece of writing, astrological sign, or the universe. There is no limit here.

    animism: a call to the land

    Todays card pull, dreamland & soul check-in theme is connecting to this land. learning more about it, accepting it as my home. Having a cherished relationship with the trees.

    returning to my roots: light is the new black

    I, like many of us, dabbled in spirituality and witchcraft from childhood through my teens and early adulthood. It was edgy, it was fun, it was different — and it scratched a very specific itch that Christianity wasn’t touching.

    in the midst of further awakening

    Finally, one of the factors that has contributed to my further understanding of our spiritual world is my daily practice of sitting with my journal. I currently work with three journals: a commonplace book, a collage/junk journal that I have titled my Prayers and Portals book, as well as a daily journal which serves as…

    hidden messages: the realistic look of spirit communication

    I think messages from whatever spirits we’re connecting to are meant to sit with us. Make space for it. Pull some cards in reflection of that message. Journal or free write what that journey looks like for you. It’s about those liminal times between communing with your spirit team, and utilizing those times to lay…

    ethereal skies open my eyes

    ook back now, and trying to remember the overwhelming feeling of comfort, and magic that I felt in the air. I wish I could’ve bottled it up for the adult me, because I know part of it had to do with the time, and that things will never quite be the same. But, I think…
