If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

This is just something I need to remind myself everyday!

This will be short, maybe -I am beginning the energy shift. My life is in a funk and I have to find a way to climb out of it. So I am cleaning, putting some music on the old I pod ( it is truly old it is a mini)! And starting in the living room. I wont be posting pictures for it because if anyone saw it they would have to take me away. The reason for this is that many years ago I was called Martha Stewart by those near and dear to me and now I live like a bad episode of COPS.

The reasons are too numerous to explain but I have them and I want to shift them. One of the issues I have is cleaning makes me angry, again I have a reason for this. Once I get a job I will be paying my therapist soo much money, until then magic. I have come up with a way to deal with my anger using the tools of the spirit.

1. light incense - one that will be used as I do each room. I am using one that is a blend for Isis. I will burn it on the charcoal.

2. Eat- I tend to be in better spirits with food in my belly, and since I have been starving do to lack of funds I understand now how hunger can really screw with your reality.

3. Play festive music - Pagan or anything that makes me smile. Also I have a vinyl player so I can put on tons of oldies but goodies.

4. Have my boys help- give them each five chores to do and then leave them alone when they have finished them.

5. Supplies, supplies supplies,- Have everything I need to clean in one place

6. Move whindershins- change the energy on way and bless it the other way.

7. burn on candle to use for the whole house - This is a red house blessing candle as I clean each room it will go with me.

8. Make peace with my flipping gnomes- Have issues with these guys but it is time to meet at NATO

Things getting better

So as I write this I am sitting at home. The kids just opened their first night of Hanukkah gifts and I am less stressed. This last week I blew a fuse to my house so I am without electricity in one part of the house. I was in my woes big time. To top it off my phone just decided to stop working so for one week I was without a phone, all this while trying to apply for jobs. Then something amazing happened; I started to work with the Sun God and bring more masculine energy into my life and surprise, surprise life began to get lighter, really! I see more than ever that I have to allow more light into my Scorpio nature.

I started working with the sun when I realized that I was drawing too much water and moon into my magic. I believe that Dorothy Morrison's book: Everyday Sun Magic (which sat on my shelf for over a year), has been most helpful in pulling me out of my funk. Also the tremendous support of my coven brothers and sisters has been indispensable in helping me see I am not alone. Gratitude is the most powerful magic right now as I face so many changes in learning at the right old age of 43 how to grow- up.

Yule Truffles

Okay, this recipe was part of an annual holiday cooking I did with my friend. I hope you enjoy them.
See full size image

1/2 cup half and half
1/4 cup heavy (whipping) cream
3/4 lb imported bittersweet chocolate,finely chopped
4 tablespoons ( 1 1/2 stick ) unsalted butter softened and cut into pieces
1/2 cup grated imported chocolate for coating
1/2 cup dutch chocolate for coating
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts for coating

In a 2- quart saucepan, combine the milk and heavy cream and heat until boiling. Remove the pan from the heat and immediately whisk in the chopped chocolate and butter until melted. Stir until completely smooth with a wooden spoon, but don't let the mixture form bubbles. Pour onto a baking sheet covered with parchment. refrigerate overnight or for 6 hours, until completely firm.

Making the Truffles: Take the chilled pan out of the frig and shape the the truffles with a melon baller into rough balls about 3/4 inch in diameter. Place balls on cookie sheet lined with wax paper, place in freezer for 30 mins, so that they are firm to handle without melting from the heat of your hands. Place the coatings on separate plates and roll balls in coating. Return to wax paper and refrigerate. They will keep up to two weeks. Enjoy!

Blogging what an idea!!!

So since the storm I have been thinking about my life and all of the things as a woman of the world I need to be taking care of. I have so much to learn. Like how to Blog, meaning setting up my account and designing my page. I am fairly illiterate when it comes to computers and I am seeing that this is holding me back. So what are some things I will be blogging about in the future, let's see...

1. Cleaning my home
2. Finally having the magical tools to heal
3. Magical makeup
4. SGB (Single Girl Behavior)
5. SMB ( Single Mom Behavior)

This list is to keep me on track, hopefully

Making the change I want to be

So it is storming outside and todat is the first day I have felt the change that I had asked Isis for earlier this year. I have other things to say but first I must get moving. one of the things that I realize is that being a witch/wiccan is about constant change and growth. Sometimes I can keep up with the growth and other times I have to let it go until I CAN CATCH UP! More on that later.
