Second Moon – Last Quarter – Part 2

Today was full of feeling ill, wonderful thunder storms, documentaries, and more sewing.  Meditation and ritual are still difficult due to coughing and throat congestion.  Still, the fact that I’m trying feels good.  It is so easy to fall out of a routine, thus even if it is difficult to experience a deep trance, continuingContinue reading “Second Moon – Last Quarter – Part 2”

Ferreted Away!

As it turns out, my journal was not fairied away – it was ferreted away.  Having thought I looked in every conceivable place, I realized I never looked under the television stand.  The ferrets are notorious for hoarding things there – slippers, shoes, balls, wallets…  They are a naughty pair of carpet sharks! Needless toContinue reading “Ferreted Away!”

Second Moon – Last Quarter – Part One

I didn’t really intend to blog today, but I cannot find my beloved journal!  I record my retreat experiences in there.  I always end up sharing some details here and save the more personal material for my paper journal.  Now I don’t know where it went…  I feel as if I’ve looked everywhere!  Who fairiedContinue reading “Second Moon – Last Quarter – Part One”

Thoughts Before Bed and an Extended Retreat Day

Family obligations, visiting friends, and general fatigue have kept me busy this weekend.  I plan to do my retreat day tomorrow and Tuesday evening.  As such, I will not be online except for short periods to check email and grove business.  I look forward to these times even though my husband shakes his head atContinue reading “Thoughts Before Bed and an Extended Retreat Day”

Second Moon – Full Moon (For Real)

Monday was not a fun day.  Well, there were moments of fun, particularly at the end when Weretoad and I started to watch an adorable anime series about a cat named Chi.  Otherwise, it was not a good day.  I don’t feel like going into it – at least right now – but I wasContinue reading “Second Moon – Full Moon (For Real)”

Nine Moons – 6th Night Retreat

Tonight I did an uncrossing ritual as part of my retreat.  It was great to bring together so many materials I’ve been creating over the past month into one ritual.  I used some of my homemade incense with charcoal.  Am I the only one who has trouble using charcoal discs?  They are a pain inContinue reading “Nine Moons – 6th Night Retreat”

Druid Fortress, Traveling Altars, and Nine Moons

I had a stressful and somewhat scary experience last night.  I decided to do the Druid Fortress exercise as a way to shield myself.  It worked very well and is calming and strengthening at the same time.  Feeling the energy is very assuring. I’m realizing that my traveling altar needs some work.  Doing rituals inContinue reading “Druid Fortress, Traveling Altars, and Nine Moons”

Second Moon – New Moon

Last night found me beginning a new lunar cycle with my weekly retreat.  Although my decision to avoid social networking, games, and the usual entertainment kind of annoys my husband (simply because he wants to enjoy those things with me), I find the escape refreshing.  I accomplish much during those hours – including catching upContinue reading “Second Moon – New Moon”
