Streetlights going out?

Merry Meet :)

So I decided to get out and take a quick walk tonight.  It looked beautiful outside as the sun had just gone down.  Beginning of the walk was beautiful I was loving the twilight. It's just so beautiful to see the mountains reflect the pinks and blues of the end of the day.  As I was getting closer to the end of my walk though it was getting dark really really quickly.

I was coming down the side of the mountain and going into the most heavily wooded area of my walk and when I looked forward it was pitch black.  Little unnerving for someone who's not all that comfortable in the dark to begin with.  Don't get me wrong, dark is wonderful if I'm with someone I trust, but while alone? Not so much lol :) Was honestly wondering why there were no streetlights lit up in the section I was on, as they had been on for the first half of my walk in the residential area.

I was thrilled when a streetlight flickered up ahead of me and came on.  I walked quickly to the light and looked up once I got underneath it, then poof! lol The streetlight just went out and I was in the darkness again.  Ok rather strange but I can see how that can happen.  So I walked really quickly down the rest of the hill and around the corner.  Could see a couple street lights up ahead though they were spaced pretty far apart.  I got up to the next street light and no sooner did I get almost underneath it then poof! Out it went again. This made me a bit more nervous and I started walking much quicker.  There was another one up in the distance and I was happy as soon as I hit the light.  Until I looked up and poof! Yes the third streetlight in a row went out as soon as I got underneath it.  I promptly started running through the remainder of the woods up to the main road up ahead with multiple streetlights. lol :) Maybe this is normal? I dunno but I'm happy to be back home now. :)))  I'll be taking a flashlight with me in the future :P

Anyone have any takes on this? Is it possible to have personal energy affect a streetlight or something? lol  I was in a really good mood.

Some Enchanted Evening

Merry Meet :)

On Friday I was lucky enough to have a few hours to myself to go out and about.  I immediately jumped online and looked about the area for a New Age shop in my area.  One in particular jumped out at me that was about an hour from my home.  I went to visit Some Enchanted Evening in Spencer, MA. The drive was amazing. It was a beautiful day out and it was wonderful to be alone with my thoughts just listening to music on the drive.

As soon as I stepped in the shop I immediately felt at home.  The shop owner Diane Hayes immediately made me feel right at home.  She was very welcoming and very helpful with some questions that I had.  Funny how you can go someplace and feel like somehow you were meant to go there?  I've been wanting to get a past life regression done for awhile now, but it has grown particularly strong in the past couple weeks.  I have some questions I would definitely like to try to get answered and I feel as if having this done will help me to answer them.  In talking with Diane I found out that Terri Jesson would be out at the shop on September 11th doing readings and yes she had a space available. So I am very excited.  She told me about a couple experiences she had with past life regressions and I loved hearing about them.  It was nice to speak with someone in person who was similar to me.

I actually spent almost two hours in the shop! lol :) I was floored when I got back to my car and realized what time it was.  I was so comfortable and at ease there.  I wound up leaving with lots of goodies as well.  I found a small opal that looks almost like a crystal ball that is now hanging alongside my pentacle.  I also picked up some white sage to use for smudging rather then the incense I have been using.  Overall it was just a wonderful experience and I am most definitely looking forward to going back there in September.

Her Name is Angie

Her voice rang out in the night and woke me from my sleep.  "Brandy"  I am a heavy sleeper by nature and I sleepily looked around to locate the woman's voice who was calling my name.  Seeing no-one I assumed it was part of my dream and started to close my eyes when I heard it again, "Brandy", this time with more urgency.  This time it woke me from my sleep and I sat up in bed trying to get a better look around.  I then heard noises from the kitchen.  My 2 year old had awoken from his sleep and was confused looking for me in the kitchen.  He is a heavy sleeper as well.  My guide had woke me up so that I could attend to my son who needed me.

It was the first time I have heard her voice that loud and that clear.  A voice I have become very familiar with but am just starting to realize that no, this isn't the inner voice that everyone refers to.  I am Clairaudient, without a doubt.  It is all starting to come together.  I am starting to be able to distinguish now which thoughts are mine and which ones come from my guides.  There is a definite difference.  The ones from my guides seem to come out of nowhere, they don't necessarily match the current thought pattern I am having.  A lot of times they can be insistant that I say something or do something which winds up benefitting someone but is something I would not have normally done or said on my own.  I am learning to trust my guide and listen to her when she tells me something.

I always question everything, hundreds of times, and that I'm quite sure she is aware of and is working to set my mind at ease and show me signs that yes, she is indeed there.  About a week previous to last night I did a meditation as I was falling asleep to ask my guide for her name.  As I drifted off to sleep the name Angie came to me.  The next morning I was struggling to remember the name because my memory seems to not like remembering names. It bothered me all day and I couldn't remember it. As I was drifting off to sleep again that night I asked her to reveal it again, and the name Angie jumped into my head.  I knew right away that was the name from the night before and I knew she had personally answered me.

Her voice actually sounds sort of similar to mine except for the tone is definitely different.  I don't know much about her as of yet but I am grateful for the experience to work with her and the love and trust that is starting to develop.  I am grateful to have a guide for me on my path as I am starting to come into my gift full swing.  This past week I have done so much thinking about all the things I have been through and I am finally starting to realize how much she has really been there with me through the past few years.  All the time I thought I was encouraging myself it was her. lol  So thank you. :)

As above, so below,
what is meant to be will all unfold,
follow the light and embrace the love,
when darkness pursues know you are not alone

A walk through time
A journey without end
trust in me as I am proud to be your friend

Lesson 14 Magickal Record Keeping

Merry Meet,

Tonight I turn in Lesson 14 Magickal record keeping.  Only one more lesson to go until I can take my final exam! I am wicked excited! :)  This lesson was pretty easy for me.  Some of it I have already been doing.  It went into the three basic forms of magickal record keeping, Dream Journal, Personal Journal, and Book of Shadows.

I have had my Magickal Journal since starting at the Mists since it is a requirement.  It is definitely a practice that I have come to love though I do need to get over and do it more often. :)) I see so many things as I go throughout my day that I would love to write about and seem to not get the time.  I am going to get a small notebook that I can put it my purse so that I can jot down notes.  I think this will make it easier when I do get time to sit down to remember all that I wanted to write about.

I have had a Dream Journal for a little while now though this is an area I really really need to improve upon.  A lot of messages I receive come to me right when I'm about to fall asleep or during my dreams.  I will remember them first thing in the morning but I always run to grab my coffee first and somehow never make it back to write things down.  So this is a personal goal that I am going to work on as well.  I have moved my dream journal closer on the alter to my bed so I will see it right away in the morning.  I've also made sure there is a pen there with it.  ;) Now if I could only get the pot of coffee next to my bed.......

My Book of Shadows :)))))) It's ordered! I am sooooooo excited.  This is something I've been looking into for a little while now but was apprehensive to start it as I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted.  I am getting a three ring binder so that it will be easier for me to add pages and reorganize.  Definitely a must for me lol :)))) It is soooooo pretty I can't wait to get it.  It is made by Zazzle and has an antique look to it.  The detail on it is just amazing for a binder.  It says Book of Shadows on the front and it has a pentacle on the back with the elements listed around it.  If you would like to take a peek you can see it here:   I was unable to get a picture for here due to copyright issues.   It is a requirement for the second degree so I am looking forward to get it set up and ready to continue on my journey.  I already have some ideas of things I want to put in it, such as a copy of the Wiccan Rede and copies of some of the artwork I've done throughout my journey with the Mists.  I will post a picture of it when I receive it :))))

New Corn Moon

Tonight I will attend the New Corn Moon ritual with Sacred Mists.  This moon phase can also be known as the barley moon.  The corn moon is known to be a fiery time and a good time to focus on your physical and spiritual health.  Two areas I am definitely concentrating on improving so I found it especially important to make sure that I attend tonight. :)

  •  Colors: Red, Yellow
  • Gemstones: Tigers eye, carnelian, garnet, red agate
  • Trees: Cedar and hazel
  • Gods: Vulcan, Mars, Nemesis, Hecate, Hathor, Thoth
  • Herbs: Rosemary, basil, rue, chamomile
  • Element: Fire 
It is also my first full day back from vacation and what a day it has been. :) I have definitely come back from vacation much stronger then when I left.  I am finally starting to heal from some of the pain that I have been experiencing in my life, and feel as if I am truly beginning a new chapter.

Amazingly enough my tarot card pulls that I do for myself are starting to reflect that as well.  I have been doing tarot readings for myself and others on occasion for almost 2 years now.  In the past year my tarot pulls were becoming extremely redundant.  I kept pulling the tower and death cards.  The reason for these was pretty apparent to me but I still had a hard time making a break that needed to be made in order to change the path of my life.  Since overcoming this obstacle my tarot card pulls are starting to look so much better.  They are much more encouraging and showing me that I am indeed on the correct path.  I just need to keep following my guides and my intuition and I do believe things will fall into place. It's hard to describe but I feel as if I have been given my wings back lol :)))

I've always lived by the quote that "everything happens for a reason", and I do indeed believe this to be true.  Although I must confess sometimes I am struggling to find the reasons for why I must go through some of the things that happen. :)))

I have been reading a lot of books by Sylvia Browne lately.  Her work is fascinating to me.  I recently completed her book Temples on the Other Side and was just fascinated by the information that the book contained and how well it matched with what I believe.  I'm now working on her book All Pets Go To Heaven: The Spiritual Lives of the Animals We Love.  A couple quotes jumped out at me during my reading and I wanted to share them with you. :)

"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night.  It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.  It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. " - Blackfoot

"We are all one child spinning through Mother Sky." - Shawnee

"The soul would have no rainbow if the eye had no tears." - Tribe Unknown
