Quotes are single-handedly one of my favorite things in the world, and I’ve been enjoying creating these very powerful, thought Provoking quotes lists.

“The fact that natural forces can be used before people find scientifically what they are is not a case for dismissing them as imaginary. If it were, we should know nothing now about electricity and the structure of matter.”
Witchcraft from the Inside
“Why worship a deity whom you cannot see, when there is the Moon in all her splendour visible? Worship her. Invoke Diana, the goddess of the Moon, and she will grant your prayers”
The House of the Wind: Aradia; Gospel of the Witches
“If you go far enough back, all our ancestors were Pagans. They practiced religions that had few creeds or dogmas. There were no prophets. There were myths and legends, but no scriptures to be taken literally. These religions were based on the celebration of the seasonal cycles of nature. They were based on what people did, not what people believed.”
Margot Adler, Drawing Down the Moon
“Always throw salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender for luck. And fall in love, whenever you can.”
Practical Magic
“Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft are written by men.”
Good Omens ~ Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett 
“You’re a witch. There’s never been a time when witches were cuddly and embraced by their people, my dear. Every culture has had walkers-between and that frightens people. We’re wild, with fire in our blood, wine in our bellies and the moon in our souls. We’re the frightening people who talk to spirits in the woods.”
Oakthorne
“Most people carry that pain around inside them their whole lives, until they kill the pain by other means, or until it kills them. But you, my friends, you found another way: a way to use the pain. To burn it as fuel, for light and warmth. You have learned to break the world that has tried to break you.”
The Magicians , Lev Grossman
“I know of witches who whistle at different pitches, calling things that don’t have names.”
Helen Oyeyemi
“Once upon a time, I thought faeries lived only in books, old folktales, and the past. That was before they burst upon my life as vibrant, luminous beings, permeating my art and my everyday existence, causing glorious havoc.”
Brian Froud
“Magic is the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with will. The will can only become magically effective when the mind is focused and not interfering with the will. The mind must first discipline itself to focus its entire attention on some meaningless phenomenon. If an attempt is made to focus on some form of desire, the effect is short circuited by lust of results.”

Peter Carroll, Liber Null & Psychonaut

Thought Provoking Quotes On Spirituality

“The laws of the universe exceed far beyond the rules of man. For me that means death, karma, and love; the only 3 things I believe to withstand any test of time and only true indication of a spectrum to it. Mastery of these puts us beyond the range of time itself; attainable only by God standards or some celestial essence not firmly planted onto this plane. May dwell amongst us, may watch from up above, maybe even be lurking underneath us for all we truly know but something more has to govern this seemingly mortal existence!”

“I aspire to be a giver of love, a giver of good love, a giver of good vibes and a giver of strength.”

“I am a kingdom that you can no longer wander in. So let her be the island of your exile.”

A. A.Roses


“To be sure, I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.”


Friedrich Nietzsche


“How I love those gloomy days, when the earth adorns itself in shrouds of mist. When the veil between the worlds feels thinner and I am in my prime.”

I want to reinstate a respect for soil. We must touch the soil. How many times do we touch our mobile phone every day? Maybe 100 times. How many times do we touch the soil? Hardly ever. We must give dignity to peasants, farmers and gardeners.

We are all part of this healthy web of life maintained by soil. The Latin word humus means soil. The words human, humility and humus all come from the same root. When humans lose contact with soil, they are no longer humans.

Satish Kumar, “The Link Between Soil, Soul and Society”


“Our consciousness sustains the Gods; the older the Egregore, the more powerful it becomes. When a cult disappears, then the Egregore sleeps on the mists of the Astral dimensions, but it can be awakened again when worshippers recall its name and perform its rites…”


Robert Cochrane

We’re wild, with fire in our blood, wine in our bellies and the moon in our souls. We’re the frightening people who talk to spirits in the woods.”

“When eye meets eye in knowing it does not matter if a mask is worn.”


Andrew Chumbley


“Most people carry that pain around inside them their whole lives, until they kill the pain by other means, or until it kills them. But you, my friends, you found another way: a way to use the pain. To burn it as fuel, for light and warmth. You have learned to break the world that has tried to break you.”


The Magicians, Lev Grossman


“Witchcraft offers the model of a religion of poetry, not theology. It presents metaphors, not doctrines, and leaves open the possibility of reconciliation of science and religion, of many ways of knowing.”

When You Miss A Call, The Universe Screams

I can’t tell you how many times the Universe has grabbed me by my shirt and said, “You’re going to start listening to me or I’m going to get mean.” Ah yes, there have been times when we have thought about how cruel of a mistress our universe can be, sometimes it’s down right nasty and unfair.

But think about it, when someone doesn’t listen to your advice or warnings don’t you get a little pissy? The Universe and the Divine are close to that, a force that sometimes has to get a little pushy for use to start listening.

The Universe is always sending us messages once we open up to it- but these bad boys can often be a little scripted and unclear. There have been many times that the Universe has been like, ” Look, Alexis this is a bad idea stop it.” and after I ignore it- BAM. Hits me harder than it ever had before.

 

Though, how do you know whats a message? Oddly placed things, or when you have two choices, the one your heart and gut tells you to choose is the one you should always pick. We notice them, but we brush them off. Stop brushing off those “”coincidences”” and start seeing those god instances. Nothing is a mistake, and everything has a meaning.

Recently, a good friend of mind suffered a great loss- her husband had died. Her phone started acting odd- playing her husband’s pandora list. She figure out why, and her phone kept glitching, bringing up music she hadn’t listened to on her youtube recents.

When she was on her way to my house- it happened one more time: but to someone who code decode the message. Her husband’s spirit had been trying to contact her and when she pulled down my road she realized: it was HIS recently played music. All of the music had meaning; it told her a story, a story of their relationship.

It wasn’t a mistake. It wasn’t a glitch- it was the work of a collaboration of the Universe and her husband: both telling her that it’s not her fault, he isn’t mad, and it’s time to fulfill her life’s purpose- which she was putting off because of him.

Why Being Spiritual Made Me A Better Mom

When I saw that plus sign- I knew it was going to get hard, harder than it had ever been for me. The hardest thing for me to keep balanced in my life was my patience and my temper. By no means has being patient ever been my best skill and to be honest, it was pretty much at zero percent mastered. To say the least, motherhood had been a very terrifying prospect for me.

Right before that plus sign I had exited an awful, toxic relationship that left me in need of healing more than ever. I found comfort and answers in my spiritual world more than ever. It taught me so much about balance, the gift of asking, and the power of my mindset. The sheer idea that my will could manifest all I wanted, and that it did. In those short months I had entirely rebuilt my goals and life- for the most part.

The issue was again, I had trouble with just how worried about my patience and temper. But I learned slowly, as I continued practicing mindful behavior, grounding techniques/ and mediating I handled issues being thrown at me. It was almost like the universe was giving me a crash course as to how to gain these such heavily valued skills for any new mother.

There is a funny thing about The Universe, and how it gives us what we need in such odd ways. I did my work for my patience and to finally grasp control on my temper. I was manifesting situations that gave me hands on experience with coping with everything.

Spirituality honed my intuitive nature, it helped me be able to more thoroughly feel my own feelings, helped me heal age old wounds- it helped me so deeply and prepared me for the moment my son was placed in my arms.

Due to my traumas I was a cold heart, miserable little child. I was selfish but in all the wrong ways. I learned from focusing on my spirituality that expressing feelings is not weak, but one of the strongest acts you can do.

How I Healed My Stomach Issues

After recovering from a long battle with an eating disorder I noticed that- food didn’t sit the same with my stomach. Dairy made me sick to my stomach and red meat became the bane of my existence. 

I knew at one point that my relationship with food changed forever. One of the hardest things was letting go of a lot of childhood memories from before I knew what the word “anorexia” would mean to me. My stomach discouraged my recovery at this point- what was I suppose to eat if my stomach hates everything ?

Well, here it is, this is the solution I found:
Mint is my best friend.

I once read that mint is great for digestion- so I worked it into my diet. In my house alone I have five mint plants. A lot of them time when I make green tea, I’ll seap mint leaves into my cooling green tea. 

Honey Honey Honey 

I really, really use to hate honey. But if you’ve been following my Instagram for awhile you’ve seen that I’ve introduced honey into my smoothies. Honey has a lot of healing properties that I benefit from.

Lighter Meals

Yep- I eat a lot of smaller meals through out the day and eat them slowly. I learned that while emotional and mentally I am recovering- but I also now understand my stomach needs time too. Large, heavy meals don’t sit well with my stomach anymore.

Replacing a Meal with a Smoothie

Ah, if you follow my Instagram again- you’ll see my smoothies are once a day typically in the morning. They range really- from oatmeal and banana for breakfast, or a green smoothie with spinach with coconut milk and cucumber.

Kicking Starting my Dead Metabolism 

After learning how to kick start my metabolism with the right foods and drinks my body seemed to learn how to process food again. Who would have thought, right?

Cutting as Much Meat Out

While I am still in the process of cutting all meat out of my diet- I’ve noticed the less meat I consume the more energy I have and the less stomach aches. Not to get gross either- but my bowel movements improved greatly too.

The Day of a Spiritual Momma

If you don’t know, I’m a young mother to a beautiful little boy who recently turned one. When my journey began I hadn’t ever thought a child was apart of my plan, especially at the age of 18. But he is a blessing, a light in my life that wasn’t expected. My experience with the divine and sacred motherhood was healing, uplifting, and powers me. It is powerful, and their is no bond, no understanding like the one between child and mother.

But days can be long and hard- sometimes I am faced with emotional blocks and physical fatigue that I’ve never knew could be possible.

5 am: Wake up- my breakfast for husband and his lunch, start coffee, drink water.

5:45 am: Yoga to soft music.

6:20 am: Read clients and/or work on blog posts and/or newsletter

7:30: Make morning smoothie, make son’s breakfast, wake son up.

8:00: Spend time with son, reply to emails and messages as they come in.

11:00: Feed son, put him down for nap time, make myself another meal, drink water, spend time in reflecting. Fit clients in as needed.

12:00-3:00: teach my son, play games, nurture him.

3:20: Greet husband, watch them play and interact, make wholesome dinner. Celebrate and talk about our days together.

4:00 Shower, cleanse myself, take time to reflect again. Through out my day I try to reflect and consider things- afterwards I fit replies and emails in.

7:00: Bedtime. This can sometimes take awhile since we do not believe in CIO. After this I relax, and reconnect with my husband and attend to  more business.

Indigo Children: The Truth

As a member of the Spiritual Community the term Indigo Child is one of the most known and used openly. You’ll see it a lot, “Known Indigo Child” or “My child the Indigo baby!” They are celebrated and boosted as a trophy. But in reality- what IS this? What the REAL story?

My issue with the articles floating around is that they don’t really explain much. All it is most of the time is an article listing personality traits and diet habits. I mean really- it’s the same recycled piece over and over. Most of the time is is the same list and format.

If you don’t know where the term comes from then Google: Nancy Ann Tappe. She’s a parapsychology writer. If you’re into this type of literature that’s AWESOME, just bypass the negativity of harsh critics.

Indigo children are also closely related to Crystal Children and Star Children. Often they are all lumped together and treated like they’re the same thing. They’re not. Indigo children are less developed- while they have natural powers and can come into it- they tend to almost never really tap into them fully.

They are also prone to being seen as bratty, self center- though this is partly because they aren’t understood. They are the beginning of a change- thus they are a work in progress. They have a the need for room, the need to be heard and understood, and the need to be respected. Sadly though, because they are a middle ground for change they are not fully ready to: A) accept or understand why B) to be accepted or understood. These were and are the pioneers- the ones to start ASKING for these things.

These types of people are the beginning of no longer keeping negative relationships- this is often seen as selfish due to them often distancing themselves from parents. Conservative ideas tend to not accept this as reasonable: this is seen as being none thankful towards family “”effort””. They see through abusive behaviors that are paraded as good gestures, they know and can sense the true meaning of behaviors.

Indigo children want to break down old structures that are no longer working- thus they are seen as trouble makers too. ‘Don’t fix what isn’t broken,” well, they know it’s broken and isn’t working for everyone. These power structures in our society- they know it’s only fitted to the little and not the majority.

They demand a change and that scares a lot of people.
