So the term “empath” has been overused lately and I’m worried it’s starting to lose its significance due to how desensitized people are to emotion and showing sympathy towards others. Sympathy and empathy are not exactly the same, but are closely related. In addition, those who are skeptical about the power of emotion elevating to a psychic level have flagged the term “empath” as another way to con people with phenomena we can’t explain yet. However, there are empaths who experience the emotions of others so strongly that it does elevate to physical pain. It’s not at all the same as being offended or “being too emotional”, even though empaths are known for their heightened sensitivity.
I wrote about how all empaths have the potential for psychic empowerment for the sake of informing other empaths who either want to explore the psychic avenue or start finding ways to ground themselves. Whether they want to believe in psychic abilities or not, skepticism will not encourage an empath to understand what’s happening to them. In fact, they’ll just feel more ostracized and be ridiculed for “trying to be special”.
First of all, that sounds like a cool title for…something.
Second, synchronicities are nothing new for me. I really don’t care who thinks it’s all just coincidental silliness. I care more about the signs themselves. Numbers are more direct, but words, phrases, or pictures are a bit obscure. I’ve been getting signs about London and the UK since March.
Let’s discuss what a synchronicity is in general real quick. I recently found a post that sums up what most of us see when we first run into them:
Like I said on the post, this has been happening to me for five years. Numbers I’m used to, but when it’s a word, specifically a location, that often means I’m going to be heading there or should be trying to get there as soon as I can. It first happened with Seattle, which significantly changed my life (that’s for another blog post). So what’s happening in London or the UK in general? No idea AND I have no idea how I’d get there.
So I do kind of wonder if maybe it’s a person or a company? But it’s gotta be the city, right? I’d love to go. Don’t know how it’ll happen, but maybe I’ll manifest the funds and accessibility to get there.
Just wanted to share this experience. Synchronicity is a strange phenomena that few understand because “coincidence” is more convenient. Why can’t coincidence be meaningful?
Celebrate your power today. Harvest all the progress you’ve made so far in this year and years before. You may light a candle or make a bonfire today and tomorrow; just don’t forget to tap into the fire inside yourself. Let it grow, let it shine, let it burn. Let it keep you warm as daylight wanes.
To those in the Southern Hemisphere, have a blessed Imbolc. The light on your side is growing. Welcome it.
The energy from the reason and this season isn’t about “positivity”. It’s about empowerment and confidence. We spent a good deal in Cancer season reflecting on many of the deep wounds our inner child went through with a cameo from father Capricorn to help us stand on our two feet again. Now it’s time to march on. The wounds are healing and we’re stronger now. It’s time to fucking show that off, but not for attention’s sake, for my sake.
Shit lol. My cynicism really likes canceling out self-worth wtf. This came to me after meditating with malachite and burning some sage in the space, by the way.
In my last post I discussed practicality and how that’s been helping me with the recent events that have happened with my room being flooded and all. I haven’t felt the need to try to push myself towards a positive look on everything, but rather just a productive view.
But my tarot reading and rune casting this morning basically said: “Yeah, a lot of inconveniences and obstacles have been coming up and it’s obviously aggravating…but it’s going to turn out for the better! There’s a lot of awesomeness ahead!” And I wish I could say I wasn’t trying to be cynical…but yeah. I thought the energy was so weird. I knew the message was genuine, but I really, really wasn’t feeling it. I spent most of the day wondering why I got such a high energy reading. Well, it’s Leo season. This is “believe in yourself” season. It’s “time to shine” season. Even though I’m a Leo Rising, my Aquarius energy outweighs it lol. And it’s just…strange.
I felt it too. There’s a balance in play right now to make it so the light and dark are not only balanced, but also cooperating. We’ve neglected the cycle of life, death, and rebirth for too long now. We won’t let certain traditions die and let new things grow. We won’t give innovation and change a chance because we’re told it’s a terrifying process that no one is strong enough to handle. You can’t “love and light” your way out of this change. Love is in darkness too; a nurturing love that sees your truest, rawest self and takes in every iota of who you are with acceptance. Your inner truth is in the darkness; your deepest secrets are in the darkness; your greatest passions are in the darkness. Your nature started in the dark, in the womb, and when you were fully grown you were born. As you live now, you’re going through cycles of being born and reborn in different ways, but we’re encouraged to shame the times of needed rest or letting go of something that no longer serves us. Change and the unknown can be frightening, but exploring the unknown, the mysteries that dominate in the dark, is necessary and healing.
The energy we’re feeling right now exists to encourage intuition and self-trust. The darkness eclipsing the full moon is the perfect visual example of the light of the full moon resonating while navigating in the dark. Although this lunar eclipse was partial, it must’ve still been a beautiful thing to witness. Now we can identify with it. You have the power to get through your own darkness and the darkness surrounding. The darkness isn’t an “evil” thing that you should be ashamed of. Darkness and light become evil if one chooses to make it so. Your shadow is who you are and understanding ALL of who you are is what allows you to be free. That’s when you’ll shine.
That may sound paradoxical because The Dark Goddess often is…
I’ve been studying Earth’s associations in life for a long while. Many sources had similar answers so eventually I decided to describe what Earth represented in my own way. I think what I loved most about writing this was being focused on life and death; those two things are truly tangible, inevitable truths all of us witness and will experience. She is our first and last teacher.
What I’m going to discuss is nothing new to fantasy writers. I’m just expressing my excitement. I discovered a more analytical way to explain the magic system of my world without infodumping. Because if you’re going to be a hunter of mages and witches, you better know your s**t. Although my hunters fight fire with fire (literally and figuratively), I don’t want the combat scenes to be the only way my audience sees magic in action. As someone who performs witchcraft, I know there’s so much more to magic than fighting, healing, cursing, banishing, empowering, and the like. There’s a way you should study magic where you do your best to understand its limitations and potential when it flows through yourself and others or else things backfire and get messy. I think the best magicians in history and now are the ones who developed a sort of classification for types of magic that are not just informative, but also personal while avoiding permanence. There should be a balance or correspondence like the hermetic teachings emphasize. I don’t believe all magical techniques are meant to be uniform because sometimes magic is just an experiential whirlwind, but there’s something really tantalizing and sexy about analytical breakdowns for the sake of efficiency.
Or maybe my sapiosexual, Aquarian energy gives me weird kinks. I don’t know. Don’t judge me.
