Beginner, Seasoned, or Basic Witch Own It!

I recently read that being a Witch or practicing the Craft isn't synonymous with self-care and to think so is being a "basic witch". 😒 The thing I love most about the Craft, is that person could be right, but I beg to disagree.

Here's the thing why I feel like the Craft is self-care{to me!}: majority of being a Solitary Witch or an Eclectic Witch is that you're doing things for yourself. Be it to better yourself (hello Abundance/Prosperity Spells!😻), to banish bad people or situations out of your life, or to attract love. Even helping or healing someone is some sort of self gratification, amiright? You don't help for that sole purpose, but it makes you feel good.

The person *did* go on to say that the Craft and self-care do intertwine from time to time, with this I wholeheartedly agree! The person just believes that the Craft doesn't equal self-care. [Craft ≠ self-care] 💁 IDK, to each their own I guess.

This ish is therapeutic for me, and once I continued to let my third eye open, the world around me started to make more and more sense. I found my calling, my path. My cake is herbalism and the frosting just happens to be magick.

Don't let someone who is seasoned tell you that you're right or wrong on your path. The Craft is about learning and honing in on your skills until it becomes second nature. Spells can be tweaked to fit you and do what feels right to you. The Craft isn't cookie cutter.

How do you feel about labels surrounding the Craft? Are you for them or against them? Do they hinder or guide your practicing?

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
