It’s Thanksgiving week here in the United States, though the underlying notion of giving thanks, or gracefully receiving, and having some appreciation and gratitude (magic!), can be summoned up at any time, in any place. Of course, I’m thinking about the soon-to-be-feasted-upon turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberries, Brussels sprouts, various Vegan options for my beloved, and other […]

Blessed New Moon 🌚
It’s that magical thin-time of the year again, so here’s some refreshed Imbolc-Candlemas inspiration to take you into this deeply creative, deeply Yin-Feminine time of the year.
Imbolc-Candlemasis celebrated during the first few days of February, and the exact-point occurs when the Sun is at 15 degrees of Aquarius — February 3rd this year (check your own time zone for any variations).

The Energies of Now … have you noticed …
If you’re more sensitive to and aware of subtle (and thus not so subtle) energies, you may have been feeling tired and wired, teary and rage-y, almost-unbearably edgy; as irritated as ever at others’ more-idiotic-than-usual insensitivity, bullying, or passive-aggression; and more scattered as thousands of ideas and insights spark all at once.
Or you may have noticed (and sensed) this in greater abundance around you, or feeling the tension as if it was just about to burst up through…

There are two key things that we need to get out of an abusive relationship. These are the two things that your abuser will remove from your life, to keep you bound to them. Additionally, it is also likely that these are the two things that you likely gave to your abuser.
Later in this article, I will explain how you can rediscover hope, and build fresh opportunities, healing and recovering you, and your life in the quickest time possible.
Hope is something that we all need. It is the spark of life that keeps us going. Without hope, we are nothing. There are fewer times in your life that you will feel that there is NO hope left, than after or while you are still with an abuser.
The sociopath will dismantle you, and your life. This is almost always done with a smile, under the guise of ‘helping…

I was raised by narcissistic parents in addition to a narc brother. Trained by the narcs, I am a people pleaser, a fixer and I wear my heart on my sleeve. I love deeply. I am an empath. I don’t like conflict and strive for peace daily so I was perfectly suited for them. But […]
