Some of you may have noticed my absence (and the lack of new posts since the beginning of the year). I was away on a trip across Europe, which -apart from being great fun- gave me the opportunity to collect dirt from a few interesting places. Which was no small feat, considering the temperatures were very low and the ground was frozen.
2016 has been a difficult year for many of us and in many ways. The main pattern I have observed (both in my own life and in the lives of other people) is the removal of things that needed to go – whether you wanted to let go of them or not. Most of the things that were stripped away from my life were things that I knew needed to go, even though letting go of some of them was still difficult. Others weren’t so lucky, and spent a year experiencing shocking loss after shocking loss, not knowing if it’s a streak of impossibly bad luck or if it’s for the best.
Christmas is fast approaching, and it’s the time of the year when I get to make one of my favorite alcoholic beverages: Glühwein!
Glühwein (literally “glow wine” ) is mulled wine traditionally served in Christmas Markets in Germany and Austria. It is named like that because when you drink it, it gives you a nice “glow” (that’s one theory at least). Since it contains a number of ingredients commonly used in magic, it makes an excellent drinkable potion to bring luck, love and money to you and your loved ones, essentially giving everyone a magical “glow” too.
I used to have a serious guilt problem.
For years, I felt really guilty for a number of things I shouldn’t be feeling guilty for. It was my biggest obstacle in manifesting many of the things I wanted. I’d throw tons of magic to shift specific situations and nothing would change, because deep down I felt guilty for wanting specific things. I’m not talking superficial guilt here; I was deeply, honestly, 100% seeing myself as guilty and nothing anyone could say or do could change that. It got so bad that (after different attempts from spirits to shift me out of this state) I had an archangel manifest (the shit-your-pants terrifying manifestation, colossal in size, covered in eyes etc etc) just to give me the message that God (at least his god) doesn’t judge me, I’m the one judging myself so harshly.
