Grumblings at 11 pm

Alright, back to the bitchin witchy grumblings for the evening. I don't mean to be a downer but I feel that my head is being done in lately keeping these things to myself. First, I will show you a picture that pretty much somes up how I have been feeling. If you are like myself, you probably have that one family member or friend that spends a ton of time complaining about their significant other, acting like they need to "replace" the person, or putting that person down. I honestly think it's so incredibly off putting!

Second little note, is that I would like to point out that just because someone doesn't produce "enough" income to make you "happy" doesn't mean that they aren't perfect for you. Honestly, I thought we had gotten past the times when women felt that they were entitled to stay home and only cook and clean, and moved on to a better time, where people worked together as partners and cared for one another. Pshh. Wow. The last month I have dealt with three different individuals, all of whom think they are entitled to complain about their boyfriends and husbands, just because they don't make as much income as they would like, and although they have no character complaints to speak of, they are intentionally dating other people who have high incomes, just so they won't have to work anymore.

This is very annoying to me. Not like I can really tell them that though, because it certainly wouldn't be received in the right way, so it's best I just talk to myself, here, instead. Getting it out of my system. Yeah, as a female, it's lovely to have a dream of a white knight and a life of leisure, but honestly, what's wrong with a Knight that makes a fair amount of money, maybe isn't rich, but treats his woman like a queen? What's wrong with that? I would think it would be more important to have a mentally healthy relationship, then one that is solely focused on material objects and financial freedom. Would we all love to have no financial worries? Of course! But why do some females still think it is the male "job" to provide all of the income for the family?

A little history lesson that most people with common sense already can deduce, but back in the day the REASON women were at home caring for the children and cooking, happened to primarily be because women were not equally treated, nor equally paid in the workplace. Obviously, it made more sense to let the men go off to work and make the large income, then to bother having the woman do the same job at the same workplace for quite a bit less. However, and important movement in American history involved ourselves, WOMEN, asking and protesting for women's rights and equality. WE said that we WANTED to work for the same pay and to be given the same considerations as the men, yet it still seems that some of my friends think they are being unfairly treated because they just MIGHT have to work, and somehow that has made their boyfriends and husbands inadequate as people. Sorry, but I just don't agree with that.

And on another note, don't people ever stop to think how their treating their partners has an emotional impact on the person? I mean, come on, you can't believe that your boyfriend, or spouse, went to work and said,"No, don't give me a raise, I'm quite content with my current earnings." And all three of the individual men/guys that I am thinking of actually make a fair amount of income, and pretty steady too. It's not as if they aren't providing, it's just that they are subject to their economy as any other poor bloke is right now.

I feel like instead of supporting and sticking by one another, I am seeing an increase in divorce and separation, because there is too much emphasis being put on materialistic ideals and no longer on love. Sorry for this rant everyone, but this is the third day in a row that people have been complaining about their sorry incomes and how they are "tired of being broke" and "need to find a man with real money." I feel like starting to say to people, "And what have you contributed to the situation?" I think people choose to see what they wish. They point their fingers and blame something, someone, anything else, rather than accept that they need to take a more active and concrete role in their own lives. Further yourself, get an education, get a job. If you are having trouble, don't immediately assume that it's not your own fault. That is all.

I'm in no way saying one should sell herself short or lower her standards. I wouldn't. I wouldn't go purposely picking out a bloke that had nothing going for him, for manifestation is one of the biggest keys to getting what you want out of life. All I am saying is that when you are in an incredibly loving relationship, and the only thing that you have to complain about it money, unless you are with someone who is not working at all, and refusing to help, I feel like you should at least look at what you can do to improve your own situation rather than throw away a good thing for dollar signs. Their are plenty of wealthy people that aren't nice people. It's as simple as that.

I think so many people forget this!

Monday Morning Blues!

Good morning Dear Ones,

It appears the holidays are truly over now. We are back to the weekly grind of work! This picture seems to sum up all that I am feeling this morning! Quite groggy actually.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I was thinking this morning that I wanted to let everyone know that we have received a new order of peace pipes and smoking pipes in and will be getting them on our website and on eBay this afternoon. These ones are all hand painted and are made of Bamboo. They are quite unique and have been a favorite of all our customers so far, so we decided to offer another set of them for January. We shall see, but I think you will find them quite impressive!

We are also going to be adding many new information pages to our website, so please stay tuned for that. If there is a particular topic that you are hoping to know more about, you could certainly always message us and we will see if we can put an informational page together on that subject so others that have similar questions can access it as well.

Had a particularly interesting dream last night. One of my jinn came through to me to let me know that my aunt who passed on last year was quite happy with my writing skills. She was a newspaper editor, so I found that quite enjoyable. She wrote a column for a while as well, so it's quite nice to hear that she is pleased with my ability to get my point across on here. It really prompted me to get on her this morning, groggy or not, and let everyone know that your spirits that serve you and your spirit guides always surprise you. They get and give messages that you aren't even expecting! I had been feeling someone hanging around me (spirit form) lately, which isn't very unusual considering our family line of work, but this being wasn't leaving much and seemed persistent so now I do believe that it must of been her watching me.

I woke up feeling so peaceful. Don't forget to thank your spirits for giving  you messages and bringing your passed on loved ones through to you like that. I think sometimes we forget that they are doing us such an honor by serving as the communicator and voice.

Anyway, going to pop over to the postman now to send out some of the magickals that people are waiting on. Hope you all have a lovely Monday!

Witchy Musings After The Holidays! Time is Precious!

Hi there everyone!

Sorry I haven't been doing many postings lately. We have been busy, both with the general holiday season, as well as doing a bit of traveling to see family. I can truly say I did all holiday shopping online this year, because I find it generally annoying and impossible to deal with the snail traffic and attitudes of other shoppers this time of year.
Why does it seem that the one time of year that we are "supposed to" count our blessings and remember what we have, happens to have become the most stressful, materialistic, expensive, and most ruthless time of year when people are so rushed and busy that they ignore the real reason behind it. Take religion completely out of it, because obviously I don't follow the Christianity based meaning behind Christmas, but we are still supposed to look at this time of year as a time to self reflect on the past year, love our friends and family, give them little tokens of our appreciation for them, and try to treat others with more kindness.
Instead, over the last few years, I have seen businesses staying open later and not paying their employees overtime or holiday pay, (something you are obviously not going to dare to make a scene about because you are probably just happy you have a job - and believe me, they know this, and that's why they are getting away with it) people cutting other people off in traffic, having arguments over the last toy on the shelf, my personal favorite, having accidents in department store parking lots and then yelling back and forth about whose fault it is, trying to attend all the concerts, events, christmas parties, new years parties, family gatherings, while still trying to plan and grocery shop for your own family meal, and the whole thing has gone from a humbling and joy filled occasion, to an absolute Hallmark style nightmare. Pretty sad really. Although I can say I was pretty happy with my online Christmas shopping this year, not only because it didn't cost me any gas mileage, but also because it saved me so much precious time. In fact, I am not even sure I would have had gifts for anyone had I not done the shopping online, because getting from one end of my town to the other end was taking over 30 minutes alone.
Anyway, the purpose of what I was getting at is that this Christmas I spent a lot of time doing self reflection about the meaning of life and why it is so important that we realize how precious our time is. Especially with those who are older than us. I got to spend some quality time with my Uncle who is suffering from cancer and I was so glad that I did. I don't keep in touch with him like I should and we don't know whether we will get another Christmas with him, so it was a truly magickal Christmas to be able to spend with him and the rest of my family. The chemo is killing him and he knows it. But what can he do? If he stops going, the tumors grow rapidly, and when he goes, they don't grow - so in effect its not cancer that's killing him, its the chemo. But the chemo is essential to stopping its growth. Time is the most precious thing we have. I was able to give him several Reiki treatments while we were there so I am hoping that will help him some, and we will be continuing to send him distance healing as well.
On a more light note, we are finally back home and back to work, and our cats are sure happy to see us! We are going to be working with some new vessels soon, and are quite excited to see what  2013 brings us for experiences and opportunities. Has everyone created some sort of new resolution for this year? I hope you all have. I can share with you that I have chosen to work more on my own healing level. What I mean by that is that I want to clear out all of my blockages and work on healing and forgiving. I also want to strengthen my Reiki healing, as I and my family have been Reiki Masters for many years now, but recently haven't been using it as much as we should!
I want to do more personal art this year - and even work with some intuitive painting and drawing. I will be working on that and will have to post pictures as I do some. Working on a lot of new things that I will be happy to share as I get going!

Well, that's all for now. Love you all. Remember that time is precious. That's really the most important thing. You are going to remember fun times you had and memories with your loved ones, not how you "always went to work" or "put work before your family." Its those people and animals that are near to you when you are having a hard time, and we don't have nearly enough time together. Good thing we are enlightened beings, we understand more what and where our loves ones go when they pass on to another dimension, but it's still never easy.

Talk to you all soon!
