“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


“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


“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.

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.

Beginning of a Spiritual Life Pt. 3

Part of my own spiritual adventure was recovering from traumas. I went through a lot of therapy and counseling as a child- still with that I struggled to really observe, process, and heal from it. There was still some sort of anger, remorse, self-blame, and most importantly: I didn’t understand why. Why was the biggest issue.

You’ll never hear me say: “Rape is God’s plan!” or “God throws the hard balls to those he think can handle it!”

Because that isn’t true- but spirituality helped me understand that I could come back from it. It helped me understand that there was nothing I could do but move forward, because it did not defeat me. I DID nothing. I DIDN’T deserve it. Most importantly, I could channel my energy into something more productive.

During my Theories of Chemical Dependency and Abuse class in college there was a Chapter called: The mixing puzzle piece. The Chapter reviewed the lacking element in any Recovery from a controlled substance: the health of the spiritual side. I think it may be a very important piece of recovery, people who are recovering need a lot of healing, a lot of balancing, and need to focus on staying and being grounded.

Spirituality is all about giving what you get, and understanding the give and take behavior of the Universe. Especially with someone recovering from drugs- understanding the idea that feeding into negativity only breeds more negativity is vital to moving forward. While yes, therapy teaches, I feel as though when you BELIEVE in these word, these idea, these boundaries it makes for a more divine, and profound recovery.

Beginning my spiritual path meant one thing for me: finally surrendering that I was not always in control and that it is okay to not always be in control.

 

Dreams: Guiding Through Your Soul

Back when I was 16 I worked with a paranormal group- I was in charge of their social media and with that- I started studying everything that was paranormal and occult related. One of the things was dreams interpretations and it slowly became one of my favorite topics. There was a point where I owned and studied multiple books and audio types on it. If you go through my tumblr account (theghoulgirls) you can actually find a lot of posts on this topic on how to interpret dreams and folklore on dreams.

In my first year old college I had a professor who was a fan of Carl Jung- which is mostly known for his ideas on the collective conscious and his ideology on the archetypes.  For those of you who follow me for my spirituality post and tarot work- I attended college and majored in: Addiction Counseling, Clinical Counseling, and was working on my undergrad for Human Services- all of which focus in psychology. One thing about the pioneers of modern day Psychology (Freud and Jung) is how they worked with the dream world. (Unneeded opinion- always go with Jungian theory. Less sexual and more to the point.)

The most interesting thing during my psychology class was this- was the studies that made dream interpreting a reality. I remember sitting in class when my professor told us a story about how he interpreted his sisters in law dream: she stood on the beach with waves crashing around her- with her family far ahead. She was pregnant at the time and withholding the information.

Shortly after this, I had a dream. One that, in a way, changed my life forever. In this dream, I sat in a wooden chair, unable to see anyone, but could hear my husband say, “theres my baby, theres my baby boy” and two weeks later I had a positive pregnancy test, and almost 5 months later my ultrasound revealed I was in fact having a baby boy.

Dreams, they’re fascinating fragments of our subconscious and unconscious mind. Things that our mind keep from us during the day. Stress, anger, despair, worry, hate- your mind will create images that hopefully you’ll take and interpret.

Alternatives to Saging:

There are reasons one might not want to sage, but there other alternative to cleansing your home and area. Sometimes its the cost of saging tools, sometimes it’s because of children in the home, or maybe it could be the time and energy. So here are some simple, cool ways to do cleanse your home with out saging!

 

  1. Try boiling flowers or herbs in a cauldron (or pot!) in your home. Not only will this give your home a clean, welcoming scent– but it’ll spread those positive, clean waves all over your home!
  2. During the New Moon or Full moon leave a pot or jar of water out to soak up those energy and then clean your home with it. It’ll replace/wash away negative, unwanted energies out of your space and place positive energies into your home.
  3. Leave Salt on windowsills, door steps, and closets. Salt absorbs bad energy and also prevents it from entering your home. This is not only a good cleansing method– it’s also good at PREVENTING the issue from happening in the first place.
  4. Healing, protection, and cleansing stones at the North, East, South, and West sides of your home.

For extra protection for these, it’s a good idea to charge all of these objects with love and light before placing them. Making sure the objects are clean, cleansed and filled with positive energy them self is always key for these things working out. It is also a bad idea just to use random tools you find or buy– always make sure you take it upon yourself to make sure they are real or cleansed yourself.
