Hey friends! I hope you’re all doing well and taking care of your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health as best as you can! As our world seems to change at the drop of a hat, it’s important we are consistent in taking inventory of who we are and what we’re doing, that includes our place in our world and what we are feeling. How often are you checking in with yourself? Someone said that talking to yourself is weird, but it’s honest and raw, and incredibly therapeutic. Take a moment, and ask yourself some of these questions, and be as honest with yourself as you can. If you don’t like the answer, you have the power to change it absolutely, but for now just focus on getting the answer honestly.
How am I physically feeling today? Are there any new sensations in my body? Do I recognize any old sensations? What can I see around me? What can I hear? Taste? Smell? Touch? If my physical body could speak, what would it say to me?
How am I mentally feeling today? Are there any new thoughts that have arised? Do I recognize any old thoughts and patterns? What was my first thought when I woke up? What are my thoughts about my day today? If my mental body could speak, what would it say to me?
How am I feeling emotionally today? Are there any new emotions? Why are they here? Do I recognize any old emotions and beliefs? How did I feel when I woke up? How am I feeling now? How do I want to feel in this moment? If my emotional body could speak, what would it say to me?
How am I feeling spiritually today? Are there any new beliefs or experiences? Do I recognize old beliefs? Have I shed any beliefs to make way for new growth? Am I feeling connected spiritually? If my spiritual body could speak, what would it say to me?
Happy check in, friends!
Love & Light!
We are different expressions of the Divine. Not just physically or emotionally, but Spiritually. All of us have different beliefs, views, and experiences that have shaped what we see as our Spiritual understanding. Though some may say that it all leads to the same place, the expressions and understandings are all vastly different. They’re all just as beautiful.
While different views and experiences are often compared and contrasted, we need to remind ourselves that our experience is our truth, and someone else’s experience is theirs. Our views also change and evolve as we do, and what worked for you back then may need to be shed in order to make room for what’s working for you now – you never stop growing as a Spirit.
Spirituality in itself is fluid, as is Divine expression. Allow it to move and mould you as you move and mould it.

Manifesting + Doing the work
I’m loving this cultural shift of people taking more of an active role in creating the life the want to live, specifically though manifesting. Manifesting is everywhere I look on social media, in conversations with strangers, it’s everywhere!
While it is a beautiful step to take in claiming your power, a lot of people don’t realise there’s a lot of steps you need to take after that in order to actually create what you want. Manifesting, spellwork, prayers, wishes are only the first step in a long journey.
For those of you who know, I’m a huge Disney fan. In The Princess & The Frog, Tiana wishes on a star to help her get what she wants, but her Dad pulls her aside and says, “You wish and you dream with all your little heart. But you remember, Tiana, that that old star can only take you part of the way. You got to help it along with some hard work of your own, and then, yeah, you can do anything you set your mind to.” This is a perfect example of how manifesting works.
Wishing and wanting is a great step to get your intention out into the Universe, but the Universe doesn’t just hand away things for free. The Universe wants to know that you’re willing to do the work to get where you want to be – it won’t do the work for you. ‘Manifesting’ as social media presents it, isn’t a quick-fix to life.
What does doing the work look like to you?

Plain and simple.
Keep in mind this is not meant to invalidate or attack anyone for their thoughts and feelings, but more of a reminder to not only claim your power, but accept responsibility with it.
Thoughts are energy. Energy is power. Therefor thoughts are power. And with power comes responsibility. As we navigate our world in our own way, our experiences have two responses – action and reaction. Both of these responses start with a thought. This thought may be one constructed over time with various experiences to back it up, or it may be more impulsive. Either way, these thoughts have feelings attached to them, as we are sentient beings. The reactions themselves may be impulsive, as we tend to feel ‘in the moment’ which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but living our lives solely impulsively can have some pretty dangerous consequences.
Now as a Spiritual person, we tend to focus on being ‘intuitive’ and just ‘trusting’ and ‘going with our gut’. Discernment is key in these moments. Remember, our Ego isn’t our enemy, just something we need to work with. Ego is here to protect us and help us make rational thought of our impulsive feelings. Ego wouldn’t be a part of us if it didn’t serve a purpose – and that purpose isn’t to hold us back, but to get us to examine and deconstruct our experiences before we make a decision that inherently changes the world around us, no matter how small.
Being mindful and taking the time to check ourselves saves us in infinite ways. You also have a responsibility to yourself, those around you, and the very Universe you live in to control your thoughts and impulses. Make informed and educated decisions towards a goal that ultimately benefits you and by extension, everyone around you. Your thoughts really do create the world around you, so you need to decide if those thoughts are conducive to the world you want to live in.

Stop blaming yourself for what you did in the past.
We know that identifying the root of an issue can be helpful when trying to solve, heal and release it. But when you’re caught up in identifying and blaming, you don’t take an active part in the correction of the issue. Constantly blaming yourself for how you thought, felt, acted in the past isn’t going to help you move forward at all.
With Spring freshly sprung, we need to look to moving forward and turning over a new leaf within ourselves. So much growth has happened for all of us in the past few months (let alone the past few years) and it’s important that we honour that growth by using the lessons we learned to move forward. If we’re constantly looking back and beating ourselves up, we can’t possibly expect The Universe to help us pave the way for new things if our consciousness isn’t in the present.
Self-depreciation is a rabbit hole I’m sure we’ve all gone down. Beating ourselves up can turn a learning opportunity into our own personal Hell. We’ve all made mistakes we aren’t proud of, we’ve all been involved in something out of our control that we wish we could have avoided. Hindsight is both a blessing and a curse, depending on how you see it.
I urge you to break your cycles of condemnation. Stop blaming yourself for growing. We’ve all made mistakes, but if you continue to let them hold you back, you do no justice to the lessons that they taught you. You let them win by keeping you in a place of stagnation. It’s time to grow beyond the restraints we’ve put on and work towards being our authentic selves.
Intention. Intention. Intention.
Everything starts with intention. Life itself, started with intention. You need to have a strong intention in everything you do, otherwise it won’t have true meaning or purpose. Intention should always be your starting point, and remembered each step of the way. People have often forgotten their intentions and asked themselves how they got where they are now. Your intention is everything.
Blessings (Whispers Of Lord Ganesha – Angela Hartfield)
Hey Friends! Spring 2021 has sprung – and if you’re in the GTA we’ve been off to a great start so far weather-wise! As the season started, it felt like a good idea to pull a card. Optimism is really the word I want to use. Spring not only brings a refreshed and revitalized outlook on the year ahead, but also hope – hope that we can really make this year whatever we need it to be.
There have truly been many Blessings this past year or so, but Blessings can sometimes come disguised as lessons. Sometimes the Blessing is the fact that we’ve been given the opportunity to learn another lesson, and grow because of it. There have been so many opportunities for growth, even in the last few months alone. We’ve re-examined ourselves and our place in the world time and time again, though it has been overwhelming at times, we’ve grown into better versions of ourselves because of it.
Now for those of you who don’t know, Ganesh is the head of the Hindu pantheon, considered the ‘remover of obstacles’. While that’s an easy box you can put him into, he’s much much more than that. He does remove obstacles for us, but he also places them in our way when we need to learn or grow. A lot of the time, he challenges us to think outside of the box – if there’s an obstacle on our path, we may need to find another way around or simply redirect. As the petals fall from his hand, they are only pieces of the whole – the blessings never stop, and neither do the lessons. A lot of our lessons and blessings are only a fraction of what’s to come for us – they’re meant to prepare us and propel us forward on our path. He makes getting comfortable, very uncomfortable when we need it to be.
Our Blessings come in many different ways, wearing different guises. Sometimes we fail to recognize them at all, but even that is part of our learning and growth (hindsight is both a gift and a curse depending on how you look at it). With the seasons changing we need to take what we’ve learned and Spring into action with it. There’s so much more ahead for all of us so it’s important that we keep moving. Think of these Blessings (lotus petals in the card) as breadcrumbs – they’ll lead us where we need to be.
Spring is just around the corner! I can feel my need to break out of the slumber-state of Winter. It’s about time we start putting the energy we’ve just rejuvinated into action! Clean out the old, and plant new seeds!
What are ways you clear and reset? What are ways you plant new seeds?
The growth never stops. No matter who you are, what your path is, where you come from, what your beliefs are – your purpose is to grow and evolve. When you resist growth and your lessons, life itself will make getting comfortable, very uncomfortable. It’s a right, it’s a duty – grow into the best version of your Spirit you possibly can in this lifetime. 🌱

Even us Spiritually inclined people get burnt out. Yes Source is infinite energy, but that doesn’t mean our beautifully human bodies are equipped to always be vibrating on such a high frequency all the time.
If you’re familiar with the 7 Chakra system, the Crown (top of the head – Divine connection) and the Sacral (lower abdomen – passion, creativity, emotions) I find they’re more related than we think. The lower Chakras are considered to vibrate lower, as they’re more ‘human’ so to speak, but when it comes to the Sacral, passion, creativity and emotions all have a direct connection to the Divine. When you create Divinely-inspired content like I do, it comes from both the Crown and Sacral. I can literally experience Spiritual burnout intertwined with creative blocks, as I’m sure many creative and Spiritual people do. Because it is my Divine purpose to teach, heal, create, I feel like I always need to be honouring and exercising that as it is like a birthright and duty. Yet again, I ignore the fact that I’m human.
I get lost in the expectations that I put on myself in the human world, and try to tackle them Divinely. Even creating the content that I post here, though Divinely inspired, with a tired Sacral Chakra I don’t feel like I can produce the content I need to. I feel like my head is running a mile a minute and my body can’t keep up. But as I sit here writing this, I’m watching the snow fall – it’s peaceful, and the snowflakes fall at their own pace, in their own way. I don’t even know what I’m trying to write here. The words which usually come to me Divinely are melting as soon as they enter my head. I think this is probably the most personal, and most human post I’ll write.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, continue to be kind to yourself. Get rid of the expectations you have and sometimes just allow yourself to be. The Divine understands, so should you. When you do something you love, it’s a passion – when you feel like you HAVE to do it, it becomes a chore. I don’t want my Divine purpose to feel like a chore, so I’m going to take a break and allow myself to fall in love with it again.

3 Nice Things
This is your reminder, right now in this moment to honour and appreciate yourself. Find any mirror if you can, if not outloud then in your head, say 3 nice things about yourself. Any 3 nice things. Believe them with all your heart.

We are our Ancestors returned. I’ve said this before - our blood was once theirs, our flesh was once theirs, the only difference is the footsteps we take are new, and continue where they left off.
Some of us have the luxury of tracing our Ancestors back for generations, some of us may only be able to go back to our grandparents, if that. In either case, our Ancestors are no less a part of our history –this includes Ancestors from past lives.
When it comes to our Ancestors, some of us may have a tricky relationship with them. As with all of our family on Earth or otherwise, they have qualities we vibe with, and some we don’t. I know I do. It becomes tricky when I feel I want to look up to them, but don’t vibe or agree with them wholeheartedly. Cultural, religious, political, social beliefs can all cause divides in the relationship we have with our Ancestors. Not only that, but our Ancestors in whatever generation played an active part in creating what we consider ‘generational curses’. Now this gets in the way, especially when trying to strengthen a bond that we have to them. We may even feel guilty at times accepting their gifts and blessings, while also playing a part or being a product of those curses. Those gifts and blessings can be incredible to accept, but sometimes we may ask ourselves, ‘at what cost?’
You can accept the blessings while breaking the curses, and without feeling apprehensive about it in any way. You have a responsibility to your Ancestors yes, but also to the current world you’re living in. You decide what traditions to uphold and which ones to dismantle. Part of continuing on their legacy is that you keep evolving, so they can evolve alongside you. That is part of your responsibility to them. Though it’s not your duty to right their wrongs, but deciding to do so can help you feel closer to them by helping them grow as Spirits, beyond what their human counterparts were able to do. As with all energies, you decide what you accept into your life. You can still allow your Ancestors to be a part of your life, but you can do it on your terms.
Stop looking for Spiritual solutions to Human problems
I completely get it. You’re like, ‘what?’ There’s going to be some re-wiring that needs to take place, but that’s okay.
Now I’ve been caught up in ‘raising my vibration’ and ‘elevating’ and ‘rising above’. It sounds fine and dandy, especially when I’m here to serve a Divine purpose. It is however, not my only purpose. I’m human. I sometimes forget that I’m in human form, navigating this human existence.
Now a lot of Spiritually inclined people that you follow (myself included) tend to speak to raising your vibration and ascensions and whatnot. They are real concepts that we all need to tap into now and again - but for some, when you focus too much on the Spirit side, you dismiss and end up harming the human side. Humanity is a beautiful thing, and sometimes I’m guilty of forgetting that. I focus so much on being Divine I forget I’m also supposed to just be human, and in the most humanly way possible. I forget to feel, think, act like a human should. I find myself literally walking around with my head in the clouds (forgive the expression).
Some have used their Spirituality as an escape. I’m guilty of this as well. The first thing I do whenever I have a very human issue is to turn to Spirit, God, Witchcraft, whatever it is. In some cases it helps, but in others I’m just running from the problem – looking for an ideal solution where I don’t actually DEAL with the issue itself. I’m so guilty of this I find myself disconnected from my humanity.
When you’re Spiritually inclined, being human is sometimes seen as a fault, or solely a ‘condition’. In fact, it’s a beautiful experience. Some of us I think have flat out FORGOTTEN what it means to be human - especially with the world being the state that it’s in, it’s understandable that we’d rather focus our consciousness elsewhere. But here is where we belong – we were put here in this experience for a reason right? So let’s focus on that.
I’m going to reiterate some points I made in a previous post Off the Natal Charts because people still aren’t quite grasping the idea that they have full control over themselves.
For CENTURIES people have blamed the Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde on their behaviour. The Celestial Scapegoat. The Moon and Mercury, as well as the other celestials definitely do influence us. Key word is influence. Though they may give you a nudge in a particular direction (usually to TEACH you something about yourself and how you interact with the world around you) you are responsible for everything you do, say, and think. Hard pill to swallow? It should be. Taking responsibility for yourself can be overwhelming sometimes, especially when we feel that we made our decisions based on our situation being out of our control.
But who said it was out of your control? Who said YOU were out of your control? The Moon don’t make you act crazy. Mercury don’t screw up your schedule. I believe the fear in taking responsibility is directly in relation to the fear of our power. Power and responsibility go hand-in-hand. In Off the Natal Charts I say, ‘The natal chart is like a set of loose blueprints (…) They are a framework, but YOU decide who you want to be as a person’ and that is as true as ever. Blaming the Moon is no different than blaming your adversity to grow on your Sun sign.
Take responsibility and control over your every aspect of your life. Claim that you are powerful enough to make your own decisions, and set boundaries with the cosmos - yes you can do this! It really comes down to how ready you are to own your life. Do you want to spend the rest of this existence feeling out of control?
How do you exercise your power beyond the cosmos?
Energy is Currency
Energy is limitless. Energy is infinite. We never truly run out of energy, but we can be depleted.
Like currency, energy is always exchanged – it’s exchanged during interactions with objects, places, people, and yourself. You do have power over the energy that you emit and absorb, but there will always be an exchange, simply because everything is energy.
You control your energetic surroundings a lot more than you give yourself credit for sometimes. You wouldn’t spend your money on people, places, things that don’t serve you, so why spend your energy where it won’t be returned the way you want it to be? Your energy is the most valuable currency you have, and again though it’s not a finite amount, you can deplete yourself. Decide every moment you get if where you are, who you’re with, what you’re doing is a good investment for your energy. If it isn’t, time to spend it somewhere else.
Your Craft is YOUR Craft!
When it comes to your Craft, you need to do YOU. Yes tradition says this, the old ways say that. I’m a stickler for following traditions. But you need to remember the whole point of you following your path is to discover your individuality and your personal connection to Spirit/God/The Universe. No one can walk this path for you – they can only offer guidance and experience.
If you’re looking for advice or guidance, the best teacher is Spirit. You can’t go wrong when you get your information from The Source now can you? While it is great to have people and teachers to look up to, make sure they have YOUR best interests at heart. The second someone tells you ‘this is what it is, no if’s, and’s, or but’s’ and they start to sound like Danny DeVito in Matilda, then they may not be the best person to look to for guidance. Books and courses are also great starting points – but if it doesn’t resonate with you, it may be time to re-evaluate your sources. Same thing when it comes to social media – WitchTok and Witchblr and Witchstagram.. It can all get overwhelming keeping up with the trends – but your Craft isn’t supposed to be ‘trendy’.
If your Craft doesn’t speak to your soul, it’s not your Craft anymore. Learn to speak to the Spirit in all living things – that’s where you’ll get the best information. Or don’t – like I said, it’s up to you to discover your path. Hands down the best teacher I’ve ever had has to be Spirit – they have yet to lead me in the wrong direction.
