The Full Moon crazy has hit me.
Since deciding this week to do readings for other people I decided to go one step further with the Full Moon. For the Full Moon weekend I will be offering free 3 card readings for folks who contact me here, through gmail or any of the other social media feeds I have. I made a short video this morning that goes over the details. I’m offering this until late Sunday night and even if it takes all week, I’ll get to everyone I can.
More later but I wanted to get this up here as soon as I could and before the day grew any later.
I’ve not written a real blog post in a while.
I realize this and I know I’ve been spending a good deal of the beginning of the year working with my Youtube channel. I’ve felt drawn to put a lot of energy towards the video channel and have been doing so. As we start to come out of Winter, I’m hoping to change that up a bit more, offering content there as well as here and trying not to mix the two as badly. (For instance, I doubt I’ll continue to cross-post the vlog video rambles. It doesn’t feel “right” to flood the blog with them. Feel free to throw in your thoughts in the comments.) What I do cross-post will mainly be focused on any dowsing, oracle or mystical work. There are also several instructional vids I have planned in the near future but I doubt I do more than just mention them here. If you’d like, feel free to subscribe to the channel. I would certainly appreciate it and it helps the channel quite a bit when you do.
However, I did realize I’ve neglected the blog quite a bit and for that, I apologize! Ultimately, I’m a bit better at expressing myself through the written word versus the spoken word. Yet, there are things I can communicate visually there that don’t translate well with the written word. Of course, this works in reverse as well. The main complication to do both has been, you guessed it, time.
A quick thank you for those of you still here and a promise that there is a lot more to come.
Spring is coming!
Once again, I can’t seem to keep my social media feeds straight! Back at Imbolc, I did my usual three card reading for the energies we needed to be aware of as we move from one seasonal marker to the other. This time, I did the reading for my Youtube Channel. Yes, I’ve been spending a bit more time there, more on that in a bit.
Below is the full reading done with dowsing rods. This reading picks up where the Winter Solstice to Imbolc reading left off, which is coming out of the murky, misty and confusing feel of the Moon card. However, the energy ramping towards the Full Moon is extremely positive. Give it a look and listen and let me know your thoughts!
Over the weekend I took to the park again to record another video. I enjoyed my first foray into doing a video log and wanted to continue. This time I wanted to create more of a “walk and talk” while I ask a very important question which has been on my mind.
If you don’t have the ability to watch the video then let me sum things up. The question at hand was how important is it for me to show my identity on my videos? Is it an aspect that helps bolster the connection and the communication or does it just become a matter of a talking head? I have concerns regarding my privacy which are addressed in the video. They go back for some time and I understand they are one of the major challenges the Morrigan has placed before me for me to resolve.
It’s not that she is saying I should show my face and, in effect, come out of the broom closet. Instead she simply wants me to become settled with a decision on a heart and soul level. The video above is part of that Morrigan-led shadow work which has become a focus for me the past few weeks.
I’ve enjoyed making these and will be making more. The time involved is surprising as I take the vid from the camera, render it into my software, edit, save and then upload it. Regardless, I’ll continue to make them for the time being.
What are your thoughts? In the video I ask everyone to comment or to email me or to message me on Facebook. I would really like to hear the opinions of others on this. Please give it a watch if you can. As said in the video, feel free to comment here or elsewhere what your thoughts may be. Hearing other’s opinions can sometimes help me find my way through the thicket of having too many of my own.
And, added bonus, there’s some small wildlife encounters along the way to cheer you up.
I took a break with the opening of the New Year to recharge my batteries a bit. I’ve been moving forward on my goals (and assignments from my favorite Goddess of War) and one of those is to create more videos for the Youtube channel. First of all, I’ve decided to continue with the Moon Phase readings over the entirety of this year as well as taking part in the Pagans of Youtube Challenge. More on that in the future.
I’ve been mulling over an idea for some time and this afternoon it finally dawned on me how to present it. As a new card reader I would often “fire and forget” my readings. Having acquired the information I would then move along and forget the implication of the reading instead of “layering” the old reading into the energy of the new reading. It’s a beginner’s mistake but over time I did begin to do this. As I grew more experienced I became interested in how the energies of one reading could and would blend into another, especially if two or more readings occupied the same temporal time space like, for instance, from the Winter Solstice to Imbolc.
This afternoon I struck upon an idea of how to show how my recent moon phase readings work and interact with the longer Solstice to Imbolc time period. I couldn’t find any other videos really discussing it and so, after some quick sketches and ideas coming forward at lunch, I was able to make the video this evening.
Enjoy! I look forward to your thoughts and comments.
More to come!
The problem with having a blog AND a Youtube channel is you occasionally forget you did one and did not update the other! For instance, here’s a reading I did on this past Full Moon last week and the energies/advice for moving toward the New Moon at the end of the month, December 29th.
This is part of a new series of readings I will be doing at every New Moon and Full Moon to help navigate the coming time. I frame the question and the reading to be focused towards anyone who might be watching it. After that, I just let the Universe do it’s thing.
More to come as I get my tripod and camera figured out a bit better!
(This is a very personal post which I did not want to initially publish. I believe that part of my work with the Morrigan is to show my process with her, to help others to see or understand. She has told me this isn’t for me. It’s helpful and is necessary. To be honest, I cannot guarantee I will keep this post up for very long. We will see how this goes.)
On Sunday, I took a walk out into a chilly morning right after dawn to have a little sit down chat with the Morrigan. You know, like you do… I felt called to shoot a little video before hand which I did. It’s over on my youtube channel if you want to see it. I think now it was just a way for me to calm my nerves and to have some record in case I disappeared, swooped up in a dark cloud of crow wings and fury. (Just kidding…I think.)
Shortly after filming I sat there and talked to her. Well, I talked, she mainly listened. Sitting on a log, nestled by some sheltering cedar from the cold breeze. I was alone in meditation. My eyes were closed, focused on my inner vision.
Unlike other spirits or visions, contact with her is crystal clear. There are no “halfway” ideas of what I saw or didn’t see. I don’t have to stretch for anything. It’s typically in high-def. Unlike the unclothed and long-maned Dark Lady from the Faeries Oracle, she was dressed in bulky, weathered, black leather armor, crow feathers and dark fur at her shoulders. Her hair was black and unruly, cropped short falling just above her eyebrows and just below her ears. It looked like it had been cut with a knife. On her back draped a long cloak that shimmered between dark blue, black and crow/raven feathers.
