About Blogs....

I feel like maybe I might make this blog my only one. I have another blog, Morph-Ma, that I started a few months before this one. Before my Pagan awakening. Now that I have delved so deeply into researching and living all things witchy I am having trouble separating the two blogs. I feel like this one has become a lot of the same talk as I try to censor much of my life from it. My other blog has become meaningless dribble as I can't speak freely about how interesting my life has become. I still haven't "come out of the broom closet" but I feel like it is a bit premature for that. My family and friends read my other blog (although readership has been down a lot lately) but I wouldn't feel comfortable letting them read this. This is my private blog. If you look up my profile I do not list this one.  I had tried to do it in WordPress but having started in Blogger it was too difficult to figure out for me. I needed an outlet for all of my discoveries, something someone might acutally read.

I am not very good at do not like keeping secrets. I enjoy having something new to tell people. It is killing me not spilling my guts to everyone I know. One thing holding me back is the fact that I do not know enough yet to be bombarded by bigoted zealots asking crazy questions. I get nervous under pressure so it is best for me to wait it out a little longer. Maybe until my initiation into my coven (about a year from now). 

I really want a nice silver pentacle to hang around my neck. I have this fascination of "looking the part" in everything I do. Even when I started dating women (about 6 months before I met my husband) I went out and bought some men's clothing and got a short haircut.  My new Pagan mentors are so normal aside from their pentacles. That is how I see me. I can be myself and still be and feel witchy. It is probably a good idea to wait for that particular adornment. I am sure that would start some pretty fervent conversations I would not be ready to have. Not to mention I have no money to waste on my appearance.

I checked out this book from the library today, Hedge Witch: Spells, crafts and rituals for Natural Magick by Silver Ravenwolf. I absolutely love it! It seems to be the perfect book for me at this point in my Pagan lessons. I can't tell you much about it yet, as I am only about 20 pages into it, but that it really speaks to me. If you have never heard of it, you should definitely check it out! I really like her writing. It is not dry but not far-fetched. It works with you for a 14 day period of time to help you clear out the negative from your mind and reach your goals quickly.
