I have spent the last couple of days going through old entries in my dream journal. It was kind of strange because I had forgotten what I had written (hence, the journal) but as I was reading it, it all came flowing back to me. Some dreams stay with me forever like Vine World. Especially my empath dreams. Don’t get me wrong. I really don’t mind people showing me how they died when there’s no one else to tell their tale. Someone needs to do it so they feel better. It might as well be me.
I divide my pages in half in my journal. That way I can write everything down on the left hand side and go back to make notes on the right hand side at a later date. Of course, this would work better if I didn’t let a year go by without following up on things. I need to do better with that. Hey, if I can quit smoking and give up my daily soda then I can do better with my dream journal, right?
It stems back to not having the energy… or life the last several years. I get to start that ball rolling (downhill) on Tuesday again. I’m already bumming. Maybe I should look into my research and see what gem I should wear. I’ll make another bracelet with what I need. Yeah. That sounds like a plan.
I need to remember that it’s time to go forward.
There is a woman here in our town who has told me that she will give me private lessons to learn to hand spin and weave my own things from the start to the end of the entire process. Now this will be an adventure! I have always (at least since high school) wanted to spin my own wool (preferably from my own animals) and weave my own designs (preferably something Pagan). I’m so thrilled!
The next time that she comes in to where I work I’ll ask what her price will be and when we can start. I’ll have to shop around for some of the tools that I’ll need but I’m good with that. I actually feel like I’m moving forward again. I’ve been stagnant for too long. It’s time to start living again. I will be so happy when we get to where we are ahead of where we once were. We were getting close and we were on the right track and then everything just blew up in our faces. It’s time.
The same woman does beading. Maybe I’ll get her to show me that too. Or I could check it out on youtube. I have some ideas for some things that I would like to make. Who knows? Maybe I’ll start my own web site. It’s not like my husband doesn’t know how to customize the software that I will be needing for one.
I find this book very helpful. It is filled with spells using tarot cards. There are spells for families, friends, business, dreams, and more. I’ve done a couple of the spells and have been quite pleased with the results. The one that I did last night is from this book. I enjoy being able to use the tarot as a tool to tap into the unknown and I believe that they are a very rewarding tool. I would recommend this book to those who already enjoy and work with the tarot, and to those who are looking into new resources for their energy who have not tried the tarot.
That being said, this is kind of rare for me. I have lots of books. I usually only use a small portion of most of them toward my path though. I have my own idea of my path. Just as others have their own ideas of their paths. My path is one I choose to believe in, one that I feel extremely comfortable with, and that resonates with my soul. I believe that everyone needs to live their own path and be at home with their own path. If you agree with that… cool. If not… toss it to the side if you so choose.
For me that’s what it is all about. Making choices to see the person that I’m going to become, or be up to this point. If something sounds good, works for me, and I’m comfortable with it, then it becomes a part of my path. If something doesn’t work for me and I’m not comfortable with it, I’ll toss it aside and not give it further consideration. It’s kind of exciting… this road to becoming me. This path to discovering what I believe in and who I am. My path that, as I look back, I have designed all by myself.
I did a 5 card tarot draw today. I wanted to see what I needed to know at this time. I used The Steampunk Tarot by Barbara Moore.
I am to basically make Temperance my goal. To do the right thing at the right time in the right place. There is to be local travel. There will be a successful completion to this endeavor. And, I will receive recognition of achievement.
Well, that sounds pretty positive, don’t you think?
Am I to be perfectly poised to be in the right place at the right time to succeed? I may not be just yet but according to the draw, I will be. My husband and I are thinking about moving to another city. Not too far away but one with better employment opportunities. I need better work hours. I can never seem to get enough sleep and my life has been on hold for quite some time now. I really enjoy my job but I have no energy left for anything else. Since the hours are not going to change, I will need to find something else. My husband works from home so it doesn’t matter where we live but we would like to stay in this state.
We’re in the process of saving up for the move. I’m excited about being able to move forward with my life. It is time.
I have the next couple of days off and tonight I start anew with working on The Witch part of my life. I will be doing a tarot card spell for tapping the subconscious mind for knowledge. I have my dream journal by the bed to record any results in the morning. I wonder what will come of it?
