Reflections of 2016 – How I Embraced My Power Words

Reflections of 2016

This time of year is a glitterbomb of the hustle and bustle of the holidays plus it’s that time of year again when all I see on social media are planners. I mean, I do love my glitter but there comes a time when it can get just a little too much. Planners, goal setting, resolutions, more planners and even more planners. Too much glitter for this chick! And yes, I...

Yule – Celebrating the Sacred Dark Within The Light

Yule Altar 2011 by ReanDeanna on DeviantArt

If there is one thing I absolutely love, love, love about this time of year, I would have to say all the lights, glitter (I adore and love glitter and all things that sparkle!), scents and decor. Creating a cozy, warm, happy and uplifting atmosphere is something I tapped into many years ago. When people walk into my home, I want them to “feel” the vibe I have created. I...

My Confession To The Kava Kava Guy

de8lrb9_16w-allef-vinicius

As the title of my website indicates, I will be sharing “Confessions” about my healing journey, lived experience, trials and tribulations in the hopes it may help others. I have found that when I have had the courage to be authentic and transparent, it opens up doors. It also allows others to not feel so alone and it certainly helps me feel less alone in the world. I heal when...

The sun, the trees, the birds, the seasons and all of the Goddesses’ gifts that are given to us every single breath we take! We only need to stop, step back, listen and...

Know Thyself

To Thy Own Self Be True

It all comes down to knowing thyself, doesn’t it?! Back in 2008, I had started a series of free online Wicca and Witchcraft lessons outlining key elements and the basics for those who were just beginning their spiritual path. Now that I have revived Confessions I still want to share all that has helped me on my earth based eclectic spiritual path. Wicca and Witchcraft are still a large part...

Warming Harvest Recipes

Warming Recipes

Autumn has a different look for me now that I live in Arizona. Early morning there is a crispness in the air that transforms into 80-degree weather during the day. At night it dips down again to about 50-60 degrees. Truthfully, I am in love. I get all the colors and scents of Autumn without all the cold plus I can still feel the warmth of the sun on my...

Kitchen Witch Basics: How To Boil Water

Kitchen Basics with a Magickal Twist

Yes, you read the title right, “How to Boil Water” is what this article is all about. Think about it for a moment. We all do it. We get our pot or tea kettle out, put it under the faucet, fill it and plop it on the stove, and if you’re anything like me, set it on the highest setting to make it boil faster. Well, kitchen witches, if we...
