34 weeks pregnant and really trying to be patient...

I've been feeling really guilty because I am sooo tired of being pregnant. I am so excited to be a first time mom and I actually love being pregnant, at least I loved the 2nd trimester. The third has been allll mood swings. I'm lashing out at my family, friends, and feeling very depressed. I really want to go into labor naturally, but I'm terrified that I'll carry her as long as my mom carried me (2-3 extra weeks!). She had my brother a week early though so maybe not. I'd like my daughter to be… Continue

What is Wicca?

What is wicca?

I've come to learn that asking this question can be like opening Pandora's Box.. Chaos ensues..

That doesn't stop people trying though.

So, I shall give my understanding on such. Please feel free to add and correct.

Wicca is a neo-pagan religion/craft tradition that was founded in the mid 1940s by a ex civil servant of the name Gerald Brosseau Gardner.

It is an amalgamation of ideas, practices, rituals and occult symbolism… Continue

N.A., daily today, is about "you can only keep it by giving it away".

I know today i am not that person, i try ti live to a higher honor as a witch, but i am human, i fu#k up.

But today i dont, so as i walk my path of sobriety and of spirituality,… Continue

I like todays N.A. meditation alot.. it refers to taking the first step of surrending, but how even as you surrender, you still have to take daily actions.

This ties into where i am at very much right now.

As we work on changes and growth and sobriety, we, as addicts, usually want what we want when we want it.

And we have to remember that the Mighty Mother has a plan for us, and we have to let her chart our path.

So today, i believe i will go… Continue

Witches Memorial Day

March 1, 1692 a day which shall live in infamy. It was tha date the Salem Witch Trials began and many people, (ironically few actual witches) were tried and convicted of the "Crime" of Witchcraft. I propose tha we make it a National Day of Rememberance of those tha died and the atrocities tha we who follow the old ways face even in the 21st Century! If yer interested in more on tha please contact me.

Pope's blood built into alter

smh - A vial containing blood drawn from Pope John Paul II shortly before he died will be installed as a relic in a Polish church soon after his beatification this year.

Piotr Sionko, the spokesman for the John Paul II Centre, said the vial would be encased in crystal and built into the altar of a church in the southern city of Krakow that is opening in May.

The exact date of the opening is not yet known, but it should be shortly after John Paul's beatification at the… Continue

I keep having to remind myself, "it's a textbook" ...

This was another of those books that came to me from the good folks at Wiley as a review copy, no doubt in anticipation of being featured in my The Job Stalker blog over on the Tribune's “Chicago Now” site (which I figure it will be next Monday). This is the… Continue

hTodays N.A, talks about learning to live anew..How things were most likely very unblanced when we were not sober, to passive, to angry, etc...

I get pretty shocked at myself sometimes at the balance i am achieving in my life..I'm like 'wow , whos this grownup and what did she do with me"...But its actually pretty cool, and not permanent, and takes daily working on...

I always say that every step i take, every action i do, represents how people perceive me as a witch and pagan, so i… Continue

Who Are the Otherkin?

Original Author: Lady Gwendolynn O'Danaan (me)

Note: These are my own personal notes and research of what I have found to be some of the most basic fundamental questions and concerns you may wish to address when explaining the "Otherkin" culture to others. If you use this in reference at all, please pay your respects and give credit where credit is due. That is all I ask. Thank you!

What is an Otherkin? Is it a state of mind or a state of… Continue

The end of a wonderful life

A few of you were keeping up with my mom's health on here, and some were even friends with her as well. She hadn't been able to get online or get more into her studies because her health kept deteriorating. She passed away this past December 17. The breast cancer had spread throughout her body and she lived maybe a week or two past what the doctors told us. She lived long enough to find out the sex of her grandchild. We are having a girl. She didn't get to see the 4d u/s but she did see the… Continue

Meeting Women and Making Friends...

So, how does someone like me go about meeting women or making friends to do stuff with, which is something I have never been good at? I am 35 years old, and have very little experience with women or dating. I also have a very small group of friends, primarily coworkers, but for a variety of reasons, am not able to actually socialize with them very often, if at all, so most of my time is spent home alone, when not working or with family. Most of my “friends” from the past have long since stopped… Continue
