Thank you to everyone who commented on my post from yesterday. Each of you helped me a great deal and I am very appreciative. I have figured out, thanks in large part to your comments, that what I have been feeling is doubt and fear. I'm determined not to give into it this time. So, thanks for all your help and support.

Oh, and Happy New Year!

how do you know...

how do you know if that voice in your head is doubt or intuition...or something else? how do you know whether you are making the right decision? how do you know?

really... i'm asking... how do you know? when you are trying to make changes in your life, taking on a new project or just to answer the simple question of 'these are my options, which should i choose' do you know? the fear is always there, isn't it? but how do you know if fear of failure is really what is telling you not to take a certain path...couldn't it be intuition? if over and over you hear the whispers telling you it won't work, don't do it, is that intuition...or doubt? how do you know?

i really need some help here...please... how do YOU tell the difference?

making wishes reality...

I've been a busy witch today. I've been working on making my wishes a reality. I have an appointment with the bank loan officer this afternoon and I'm going to inquire about the loan for my dream home. In anticipation, I have made a mojo bag to carry with me and also begun a honey jar spell to "sweeten" the bank officer. I can't get this house/property out of my mind. When I was getting the paperwork together to take to the bank I found the paperwork from the listing agent that I received over a year ago when I went to see the property.

Last week, when I talked with one of my good friends, she was thrilled when I told her that the house had become available again and she also believes that it is supposed to be mine. I tell you, I am determined to make this happen. I know I belong there, I believe... I believe... I b.e.l.i.e.v.e!

light returns

I'm trying to brighten my outlook and get in the spirit of the season. I think I'm going to leave up the lights even after the holidays are over. I love the way twinkle lights look.

I can't believe that Yule is less than two days away. I am almost dreading it. It seems that the moment that winter officially arrives, it starts to leave. I would like to have a longer winter. It might help if I lived in an area that actually had a real winter, with cold air and lots of snow.

There has been no knitting in this house this week. Too many new toys to play with, so I'm easily distracted.

In case I don't get back online beforehand, I want to wish you all a blessed Yule.

I'm looking for someone from my past, and I'm wondering if I should. A person that I was best friends with, as close as sisters, has come back into my life, in a bad way. Over the last few months, my mum and I have both received phone calls from collection agencies looking for this person. Apparently they gave my mum and I as contacts for emergencies. What balls they have!

I have had no contact from this person in over 10 years, probably closer to 15. It astounds me that they would do this. Our friendship ended very badly, I was living in my grandparents house and she had been living there also, sharing the bills, etc. She moved out and stuck me with all the bills and several of them over $500.

Anyway, I've been trying to search for this person to find a way to contact them. I found an email for them and have sent an email off. I'm afraid that in doing so, I'm opening Pandora's Box.

Wish me luck...

I did it!

Despite a raging migraine that started right before I left work yesterday and grew to unbelievable proportions (I could barely hold open my right eye it hurt so much! and still does!), I have completed my homework. This morning when I got to work, I printed out all my written documentation to go with it. Now I just have to get them boxed up and shipped out. I am very excited about this.

I began this class in February of 2006. It took me over a year to finish reading the course materials and then the longest time to even begin working on the homework. At one point, I really thought that I would stop doing the course and just give up. Hoodoo has a lot of what I consider catholic overtones, lots of saints and bible verses used. This has been a sticking point for me as I'm not very fond of Christianity.

I decided to stick this out and to do what I do with all religions. I take from it what makes sense or works for me and leave the rest behind. I guess you could say I'm a very eclectic witch. :-)

So, now that I'm done and hopefully will pass and get my nifty certificate, I'll be able to incorporate what I've learned into my vast melange of my practice.

If I pass...I'll also be able to say that I'm a certified root worker or conjure. :-)

I think I've mentioned before that I'm taking an online Hoodoo course. I started in February of 2006 and have very slowly worked on it since. It took me a while to even finish reading the book, then I began working on the homework to turn in. There are eight total assignments, that we are to complete and mail in to the instructor. The last 2008 homework grading is on December 19Th and if I don't get at least some of the homework turned in for the grading, I'll become an inactive student. I really don't want to be deemed "inactive". I don't know why... I think it is the stigma that is associated with being an inactive student. It has been suggested by several students that becoming inactive is an insult to the instructor. I don't know if I agree or not. However, I am going to finish my homework and get them turned in. I really want my certificate!

I have already completed five of the eight, including the documentation to go with them. I have number six almost ready, just have to bag it up and type up the documentation. Number seven is creating an oil. I just finished mixing mine up, I had to come up with my own recipe and everything. This is something that I have never done in my almost 25+ years as a witch. I realized that as I was mixing it together. I'm constantly putting together herb mixtures for candle rubs, or herbal bags, but I had never tried oils. I wonder what I was afraid of. :-)

So, now I have one homework left. I have to make a "mojo bag". I don't expect it should be too hard. I think the hard part is deciding what type of bag I want to make. I'm leaning toward something like a blessing mojo.

Well, I'm going to finish typing up my current homework and then try to get started on number 8. Hopefully, I'll get to the knitting today. Speaking of knitting, I had to frog part of my second sock last night. I was turning the heel when I realized I'd forgotten to go to a smaller needle when I finished the leg. I've also started another pair in light blue that I hope to finish before Dec. 24Th as they are a gift for my mum. I guess I'll be busy knitting... no more early to bed. :-)

And because I really like to have a photo in my posts... I'll leave you with a photo of last night's moon.

I am completely digging on this song right now. not because of the movie it is associated with... just the music and the lyrics... love it...
