Oh I remember it like it was yesterday….30 years ago laying on a blanket listening to a woman read Creative Visualization to our group…Years and Years later in my 30s being called by my coven to come watch this dvd called the Secret..
And how it blew our minds that somehow Esther Hicks and Abhram Hicks could like almost summarize witchcraft in a hour on a cruise.
And we all sat back when Jerry died.
Why? Because suddenly it all felt just slightly fake.
It wasn’t fake. Postive thinking over all is infact better then wallowing and being stuck being a grouchy ass asshole
Untill the day you truly have a shitty week and allow yourself to play I’m a Asshole by Dennis Leary and laugh so hard you really genuinely raise your actual vibration.
That’s where this completely unfortunate toxic positivity word and conversation even had to be brought up
Look what’s negative to one person is perfectly appropriate and healthy to another.
None of you are the positivity police or expert or divine God or Goddess of positivity for all.
The most underheard overlooked part of the secret was about setting your intention*spell casting,* then letting it be.
What was the sentence if meditation feels good do that. If making a grilled cheese feels good do that.
I myself will take a good grilled cheese over meditation any day..
Blame it on my adult ADD or my cheese addiction…I dont care
But when I’m eating a warm soft comfy grilled cheese I no longer give a shit if I’m poor,fat, single, imperfect ect.
I’m eating a grilled cheese and for those few mins I’m not forcing postive thoughts or judging my grouchy crappy thoughts
I’m in the moment connecting with my grilled cheese and really not giving a shit about much and probably not even having a thought but yum this is good.
Ok that’s genuine authentic “postivity ”
Weither it be a grilled cheese or steak or veggie or laughing at Dennis Leary being a Asshole Or binge watching Orange is the new black.
It doesn’t matter.
Whatever shuts your head up from the constant chatter or helps you forget long enough to allow better vibrations in. Whatever makes you smile even if its Christian Slater in Heathers is your personal postivity.
And if anyone judges what is vibrational raising for you because it doesn’t fit in their rules of what happiness and allowance looks like.. slap them lol jk I really dont promote violence as a violence survivor but that’s just it. I’ve healed enough in my own ways to even crack a joke like that and that is actual real postivity being able to laugh at the human condition and accept it.
To a certian extent.
Obviously with the child sexual trafficking crisis we got some exceptions if you can only spark your joy by hurting a child or even a adult physically or sexually this post isnt for you and your sick and need help .
But for most of us not suffering from pedophilia or some sort of need to seriously harm others.
If eating a grilled cheese brings you peace …eat it
If going out into the Gardnerville Ranchos sandpits and shooting a gun brings you peace do that
If watching raunchy comedy brings you laughs do that
If crying brings you release do that
If burning their photo while screaming cusswords at the top of your lungs brings you peace and release do that
All I really ask is that it feels real for you and not a chore or a I “should”
And that you don’t judge others
You heal and let go and allow and find your real..let others find their own
The only toxic in toxic positivity is when one person decides what is postive and what isn’t.
Thats not your job or your business. Except for yourself.
And if you still get stuck on postivity
Its actually a word from science…we need both positive and negative ions to even have a universe
So you know drop those dam words
Use being in the moment
Trying something new
And my personal favorite as a witch..LMFAO
Cuz there is no higher magick then Gut laughing
Blessed Be 🙂
I will be making a video of this later this week , just in time for New Year’s Vision Board making.
One of the best things about making a vision board is its easy cheap and fun. I’ve actually seen life coaches charge like 30.00 a person for Vision Board making workshops, for some reason that annoys me to no end. If the hairstylists on Jerseylious can do it, trust me, you can.
But for free , no workshop charge even, I’m gonna teach you to make not just a vision board, but a witches vision board. Yours will rock my loves and it’s not even that much harder, you will need a few extra supplies and a little extra time, but the extra umph to your manifestations will be amazing!
1. Buy a poster board , how big is up to you, you could get like a big school project size or a smaller one. You will be hanging this up somewhere, in your bathroom, your closet, your work cubicle , your kitchen, where ever.
If possible do try placing it near your altar if a witch, or facing a sunny window that also let’s moons shine through. Or near houseplants .
Now that you have your base paper and figured out where to hang it , your next step is to A. put the paper in direct sunlight through a window or outside (a small amount of rain or snow is fine just will need to dry and not soaking .
Or B. Leave it near a window, balcony or outdoors, under a New Moon or Full Moon depending on which is nearest your time frame and needs.
You can do both A and B but really one or the other is just fine , if your vision board is more material, physical and financial you may prefer sun energy, if more about moods ,emotions, and deep love , the moons energy might be best choice.
Now your paper is charged , if you can not do either of these steps, here is a alternative, also if you did the above steps you can also do this for a extra charge.
Take your phone put it on a good speaker . go to You Tube and look up Isochronic Binaural Beats. They must be Isochronic when not using headphones , Look for one for helping manifestations or one designed with happiness, joy, etc and play music near board for as long as you can, you can leave it and go on with your day, try to get atleast a 30 min total charge going though.
Now to get really witchy lol
Get you a spray bottle
Your gonna need Basil leaves ( grocery store spice rack is fine )
Rosemary, Cloves , Cinnamon , Sugar, just plain old white sugar,
A little coffee already made, just a little,
And Vodka and just a little orange or pineapple juice or a combo
And jasmine oil if possible
Put your basil in, really use alot! Basil is just a magical mojo!
Now just pinch on in , no particular amount the Rosemary, Cloves , Cinnamon, Sugar,
Now pour in just a swig of coffee ( pre made liquid) Instant is fine
Your jasmine oil if you have some
And then a good splash of orange or pineapple
Now fill rest of bottle with vodka
Shake the hell out of it and let sit if possible near a window for 24 hrs
Now after that’s set your gonna spray that paper like crazy, get it pretty damp, while spraying you can chant or say, As long as it harms none so Mote it be, over and over again or just at the end with passion
Now let it dry, while its drying if you want you can play it either more Isochronic Binaural Beats or Reiki Music (also on You Tube or Spotify)
After its dry the last thing your gonna do is make a few symbols on it, hand drawn, This is where you can hit Google and find something personal .
Ideas Google Witches Rune Symbols or Regular Rune Symbols ,find symbols that represent your intentions and draw them on there . You can Google Sigils for your particular intentions. As long as you hand draw them on there, that’s all that matters! You can do just one or as many as you like.
Now on your board I want you to write As it harms none, So Mote it Be.
You can later paste a picture over that just make sure it’s on there 🙂
Now you are ready to proceed to the regular vision board making process.
Which basically is cutting out pictures and phrases and words from magazines which build a vision of what you want to manifest in your life. I do mine yearly in January . But you can start whenever. Birthday Vision Boards are always fun,Doing a mutual newlywed one together is fun too.
There is hundreds of examples of regular law of attraction vision boards online for free, just Google if unfamiliar with that part.
Take your time making it, it takes me a shit load of magazines myself lol
Most libraries have free magazines, look for one’s that represent what your intentions are , business , money, travel, yoga, Cosmopolitan , gardening, better Homes and Gardens, also catalogs with things you like are great starts!
Have fun everyone and may your year be magical!
I’m posting my 2016 one, about 85/90 percent manifested in one way or another.
So I remember back when I was first involved in a local manifestation support group. Not just Witches, but it was formed after the movie The Secret hit, and all types of people were starting to understand the law of attraction. Which we Witches knew about for years, just used different words and ways for.
Anyways so I was younger when I was in this group and had goals and desires just pouring out of me left and right. But others sometimes seemed to struggle with not knowing what they really wanted. I remember not really understanding how one couldn’t want something . How do people stop having dreams.
As age started catching up with me and having a third child and life and health taking some strange turns, before I knew it I was now the older woman of the group going, omg I don’t know what I want except a nap and maybe new glasses or some new orthopedic shoes lol
I went from creating with Erin back then a Television crew knocking on our door to make a show about us as Witches to barely being able to hold on to my job as a professional witch and having people find me at all.
One thing I have noticed and may help others who due to age or life distractions just wearing you down is first of all, its OK to not care about being famous and gorgeous anymore, I think those two things were the heart of my first years of manifestation, and we did pretty much get there maybe not super famous, but we were well known enough to be stalked !
And I look back at some of the old eBay photos of me and Not to sound egotistical but I was more gorgoues then I knew when I was in full shine connected mode.
But my understanding of beauty has changed over the past ten years and Its just not something that makes my top ten anymore.
Neither is being famous.
The things I crave as a older woman are harder to label, harder to make a actual goal of and most of it I do already have, so hanging on and protection of what I have has become important and I think this is subconsciously what may block some people, change happens, and when we shift to enjoying what we have so much that our desires become protective, we start resisting change. And if your in the mindset of resisting change , it gets a bit tricky to focus on wants, desires and goals , doesn’t it?
The way out I think, is instead of protective resistance is simply gratitude.
We all have heard it so much, but its true. Gratitude is amazing.
When we are grateful instead of clingy protective, its such a different vibe.
Gratitude has a way of bringing back connection to ourselves.
So I say to those facing new years resolutions or trying to make desire lists or vision boards and just not getting far.
Don’t force it.
Make a gratitude list, or board or celebrate the good things of last year, before even trying to co create next year.
And spend some time in the present moment, its really ok to just be where you are , enjoying things.
Your power to manifest is infinite, your not gonna run out of wishes, your not gonna shrivel up because you didn’t make a new years resolution . You still lived and had good times before you knew about the law of attraction or witchcraft etc. You’ve used them consciously now to really make changes etc.
But never be afraid to just run on gratitude and present moment enjoyment.
If you run on auto pilot for awhile as long as gratitude is the energy behind it, you will be fine.
It’s when fear, resistance and anxiety fuel the auto pilot that it gets messy lol
And if that’s where you are it can be hard to switch out of. Gratitude can be that simpler little step. If change is too scarey or confusing to focus on. Simply focus on what is good in your life right now.
It will put you back into sync and flow even if your not sure what you want to create. You’ll be right where you need to be when you eventually do figure it out 🙂
And if nothing else , my personal fall back , is to always wish for joy and well being.
It’s general and if the word joy is too intense to connect too, I’m really a fan of well being. It’s from Esther Hicks Abraham of course . But such a soft soothing safe word.
I dream of my highest well being, comfort, ease, enjoyment, pleasure. And you may not have a image of exactly what any of that looks like, but the words bring about feelings you really just can’t go wrong with!
How’s that for a resolution 🙂
