Time will tell.
Last night one of my sisters was online sharing a Women's Wisdom Live class. Sis is typically on point and insync with Divine Feminine. She's also an award-winning martial artist so her Dark Wisdom is also Master level.
She began by discussing a characteristic of the archetypical feminine in her martial discipline: Yin. How women are most powerful when acting in this principle. Also, how our masculine compliments are characteristically acting as the Yang. She elaboarated on what it means when both genders stay in their lanes. And what I received from her wisdom that pertains to this post is how Yin flows with Time. Time is not our enemy, despite what we are told. Yes, biologically we must respect the Laws of Earth. However, for the Witch, our initiations teach us how to flowwwww. We live in tandem with time; Saturn.
That said, she gave words to an intuitive understanding. He.. the composite 'He' in my above musing, has grown tired of our courting. Lol. And so his true colors are showing. I shared with him early on that I saw him and I was aware of his shadows. We all have them. I didnt place a value on either one the faces- the one he showed me, his mask or the one he thought he could hide, his truth- I simply acted in my Yin. Trusted myself and my discernments. And we proceeded with our dance. Or game. Both analogies fit. And we had fun. And now, here we are.
The slick comments. The sneak disses. The disrespects. I called it early. Saw it in him. Been there, Done that. And so I proceeded accordingly. Whats Gucci?
Im not implying I have all the answers. I dont. I do have some answers, some wisdom. Enough to combine with my experiences to help me know when someone or something is off. So while I enjoy a good time as much as the next person, I enjoy my peace of mind more. And Im a romantic so I require a slayed dragon from my Prince Charming... Which is a whole 'notha series of posts worth of breaking down what that means in 2019. So for this post, slaying a dragon means 'He' must slay those tendencies to put me under his foot... If you dont follow, God Bless You. If you know, then you know. That dragon is a formitable beast. And the reward is my trust. Lay the dragon's head at my foot.
Or leave my Witchy Ass Be. Cause Im on my own quest to master the feminine Yin.
Last night was a pleasure
Jo Burkholder, Ph.D is an interesting storyteller. Its late and Im tired. Will update tomorrow.
Proverbs 9:10 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding." One of the primary reasons we hold to Hoodoo is because Hoodoo holds to the traditions of our heritage. There is value in the ways of our Ancestors. While there is much we do not accept as our truths regarding religion, there is much we cannot deny. And if it works, we work with it.
The Bible. Best understood by occultists, the initiated priesthood and wise women. Proverbs. I've heard many preachers teach on this verse and the censuses thus far is 'fear' is not what the Hebrews originally wanted to communicate in this verse. The word 'fear' in the context most familiar to modern Americans is not the proper context for "Yirat/Yirah." The online resource, ancient-hebrew.org lends us this explanation, "The literal concrete meaning of yara is a "flowing of the gut," which can be applied to "fear" or "reverence." Have you ever been so scared or been in the presence of something so amazing that you could feel it in your gut? This "feeling" is the meaning of this word." This article goes on to further elaborate on the feminine noun "Yirah" and using ancient Hebrews ascribes "fear" to mean "teachings and character of God. Goddess (Divine Feminine.) http://www.ancient-hebrew.org/m/tlw_fear.html
When you began to see Magic in the mundane, the world becomes Wondrous. You will quickly realize that miracles are all around, and sometimes we have control over them; we can conjure our own wonderment. This is the power of the mantra, "Remembering Our Magick." Once had Knowledge of how to live in sync with our environments which allowed us to tap into the flow.
We Are Remembering. And it is wondrous.
Serendipity! A confirmation. This a.m. I sat with my Vision Board strategizing next moves and goal setting. I log onto FB and am pleasantly suprised. Dey say a picture is worth 1000 words! And this specific picture brings back memories about where I was mentally and emotionally during the 2013/2014 cycles. I remember wanting to display an image that conveyed a message to the algorithms and programs of cyberspace that I was ready for my next level. If you knew my (shared) theory on the 'ghost in the machine' perhaps that last statement wouldn't read as Willy Wonky...
Lol, it's so easy to be critical and short-change our own accomplishments. Lets not.
I revisited my Vision Board to gauge what has materialized that was once only inside my mind. Then I began goal-setting for what is still to come. Selah. Romans 4:17 says God “summons the things that do not yet exist as though they already do” (NET). Selah. So this old cover photo with the seeming juxtaposition; a leap. Like faith... Bold. Sustainable. Attached my Vision so it can transcend my outdated thoughts. buffalo&bayou was a message special fa'mi family. Not easily explained because its falls under the category of Mysticism. Serendipity. A Coincidence. Spiritual Confirmation. Divination.
Pray. Ask for a sign like the Bible peoples. You'll see. When you know, you know. It's a feeling.
1. Dream a Dream. Make a goal.
2. What does this goal look like? Sound like? Smell like? Taste like? Feel like? Funk like? Funk lyfe.
3. Create a board that best expresses your goal. Use whatever is required to develop the 'experience' of your Vision Board. The most common way is to collect magazines, cards, newspapers and journals and make a collage. However its your board so craft it to your needs and desires.
4. Stay mindful of your goal. Set the mood so youre comfortable and open to the process. Take your time b.u.t. Finish It. F.i.n.i.s.h. I.t. Okurrrr? Find an accountability partner if required.
5. Frame it.
I was told by a powerful, wise Conjure to write what I most want on paper, then pray and work towards getting it. Now days its a plethora of options for 'How To' do this simple magic. The old ways are proven to work. However since we have the technologies, I say integrate the best parts. A Vision Board is the step-up for writing spells on parchment paper. And while I prefer the hands-on approach, an online Vision Board adds the www into the Mental Magic exercise.
So which ever method you choose, like the brand with the Mercury sigil muses " Just Do it!"
Then send me a link, I want to see what youve created and are envisioning. Or contact me directly if you want to schedule a Vision Board party. I will bring some important materials and coach you through a few different methods. 713-338.9343.
