So the 30-Day Challenge is finally over and as it turns out, it has served a slightly different purpose for me than what I had in mind when I started it. The clarity I was seeking regarding one particular matter/aspect of my life hasn’t been achieved to the degree that I hoped. What did happen however was the sudden revelation of a core wound that is the underlying reason behind the lack of clarity, as well as the reason behind a big number of other situations and occurrences in my life. it’s one of those times when you can’t believe there was something so big, so blatantly obvious at play in your life for so long and you still managed to miss it. So deep and fundamental and old that it is totally and completely invisible because it has literally shaped you into who you are so you don’t even see it as something outside of you. You don’t even see it at all. “That is who I am. I have always been like that”. Wrong. Just another mask, yet a persistent one, one that I’ve been constantly wearing for so many years that I ended up believing that this is actually what my face looks like.
Starting today, I am going to be participating in a 30-day challenge organized by the Strategic Sorcery members. The previous 30-day challenge (which I ended up not taking part in because of other engagements) was about doing a different kind of magic every day for 30 days. This time, it’s all about doing the same spell/ritual/practice every day for 30 days. People have come up with all kinds of great ideas for this challenge. The Headless Rite (with or without the 4 Kings) as well as a month of devotion to Juno have been really popular choices.
It’s been a while since I’ve had a dream worth posting about. Until yesterday, that is.
I dreamt that I was in my home town and wanted to go to the post office to pay for a postal box.
There was this man I kept encountering all the time.
He supposedly was the sheriff, and was wearing a brown uniform with a golden star, complete with a brown hat.
For unknown reasons, this man really disliked me. I shared my thoughts about him with a few people, but they were all insisting that it wasn’t anything personal, that he generally behaved as if he had a stick up his butt no matter who he was talking to, and that despite this he was good at his job and was keeping the town safe from all kinds of threats.
Apologies for not posting much lately. I’ve been insanely busy with a number of things (too much work, business trips, homework, all kinds of projects, deadlines etc). I’m currently on vacation, but I’ll resume posting once I get back. In the meantime, you probably want to watch this video if you haven’t already (in which case, do you live under a rock or something? 😛 ). Jason Miller and Gordon White Talking Financial Chaos:
