I am absolutely exhausted, but wanted to post a quick update...
After a year of planning a wedding and starting my new career (which supports the acting...and new marriage), and then finding a new supportive, flexible workplace (that's right ~ I started at one place, left because of the horrible energy, and found a new, wonderful, holistic place!), I am finally getting BACK to my metaphysical studies!
I just completed 3 out of 4 Wicca workshops (the last class, which is actually the "first" class to be completed in June). At the start of my witchcraft studies (mainly by books), I knew I would be a solitary witch. We did a ritual tonight, in which we consecrated some of our jewelry and/or tools, and while I was grateful to experience it, and will consider attending a public ritual at some point (maybe), I am more convinced that I am a solitary witch. Going further than that, in a little research tonight, I believe I am resonating with a hedge witch...working with natural magick, in healing, and with the faeries. It all resonates! I'm loving it! I hope that as I continue my research and studies, this will continue to be the case for as long as it needs to be.
For those of you on Twitter, please feel free to follow me as I stumble along... @charmMoon. My regular blog will be located at charmMoon.blogspot.com
Thank you! Hope everyone is wonderful...and if you would still like a free angel reading, please contact me! I'm back to working on this skill...and hoping to get back into my studies for that soon, as well!
Wow, I can't believe it's been over a year since I posted! Coming back to my page instantly brought a surge of calmness over me, and I needed to fill this neglected blog with an update.
It's been a busy year with graduating from esthetician school, getting my esthetician license, followed by the holidays, and getting engaged!!! My fiancé and I will be tying the knot in 2 months in the every-so magickal Disneyland Resort...so, yes, the past 8 months have been taken over with decisions from décor, invitations, to what dresses my Maid and Matron of Honor will wear (even when I told them to decide on any dark brown dress ~ lol). It's been fun-filled! So, most of my blogs have been directed to my wedding blog. My focus can only go in so many directions! LOL
So, on my journey of a new - or dare I say, fated - life path, I'm
working towards becoming a certified Angel Reader (hopefully, soon to
be followed by certified Fairy Reader). In order to receive my
certificate, I need to do 4 Angel Readings...and I'd prefer to do
readings for people I don't know, and VERY preferably, like-minded folk
like the wonderful enchanted folk I've chatted with here! :-)
If you'd be interested in receiving a reading, please email me. Thank you so, so very much!!!
After so many months of not working, I finally found a part time job working front desk at a relatively successful spa in LA. It appeared to be a good fit seeing that I'm working towards my Esthetician license, and there was the opportunity to be trained in all of their treatments and be ready to DO all of them by the time I got my license. Fabulous, no?
Everything was going well the first week ~ even in handling difficult clients, I was able to let it roll off my back with ease. This past Sunday and Monday, however, not so much...not as easy. There were one too many difficult clients, very literally yelling and SCREAMING at me...or should I say, TO me? (*note: I was going to include these stories, but am SO tired of retelling them) Whether these situations were the cause to a spiked fever and dizzy spells within my body, or whether it was simply some other dis-ease, I had to call in sick the next day (Tuesday).
Later that day, the front desk manager called, leaving a vague message: "If you can, please call the spa." Umm...??? I decided I'd call the following day. ...I didn't call. Feeling better, I went out all day, enjoying the beautiful weather.
At 7:30 this morning, I made my 20 min. drive to the spa, with sneaking suspicions that I was called the other day for the message that I was not needed on Thursday...or that I was fired. Lo and behold, when I arrived at the spa, and pulled out our "Keep Me in the Know" binder (which includes our work schedule), there was a change in the schedule...and I was scheduled as OFF for the entire week, including the weekend. I alerted my trainer about this; she found it very strange. An uncomfortable silence followed. Awesome. Given that a couple of more girls have been hired, I very well may be fired. If that's true, a shift in the universe must have happened. I created and started my own "side" business while I was out sick. Kicking off my business is my Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) service! Soon, I'll be adding hot stone massage therapy, reflexology, and Advanced IET. Three friends have already contacted me to schedule sessions, and I'm looking forward to my business growing!
An email I sent to my lovely life coach this afternoon... :-)
I had a couple of interesting discoveries this morning...yes, MORE!!!
How ridiculous is that?! :) As I washed my face and put on a little
"greek isles" fragrance this morning...and thought about Andrew's
sister telling me yesterday how people WILL actually believe that I'm
really Greek once I marry Andrew (they're Greek), I froze as I looked
at myself in the mirror and thought "Oh my go****hink I spent a past
life in Greece!!! ...could explain my interest in Greek Mythology...I
don't really care for the 'roman' version of it...all there is to me is
GREEK mythology." I could see myself in Greek robes...during the past
life regression with Tina and Mark a couple of weeks ago, each time the
angels took me down to the beach, I was in a flowing white dress...very
Greek-like. The other discovery (more major than that) is that as I
looked at myself ~ seeing myself as a Greek woman or a Greek goddess or
something, I then saw myself as others might of seen me in another
time...as a witch. Something in our conversation yesterday spurred me,
I think. While, I didn't resonate with being burned at the stake,
thinking about Salem, or just thinking about Massachusetts in general,
it ALL started to come together. When I was younger, I wanted to live
in Massachusetts. I even looked at colleges up there when I got older;
I applied to Boston College. I was even attracted to Boston men for a
while ~ haha! ANYWAY ~ I thought my attraction to the state was because
my parents met in Boston, both of their families when they moved to The
States, moved to Boston (or just outside of Boston). And I had family
who still lived up there while I was growing up. They all moved away
eventually...but then my favorite aunt and uncle (originally from
Boston), who lived in Richmond, VA and Fairfax, VA (near where I lived
in D.C.) for about 9 years, are moving BACK to Massachusetts by the end
of the year. Massachusetts always fascinated me...along with witches,
as I told you yesterday. I always wished to be a witch; a good witch.
I was obsessed with this HBO movie when I was growing up called "The Worst Witch."
It was about this young girl who goes to a boarding school for witches,
and she was TERRIBLE at it! :-) I loved "Bewitched" (still do), and
wanted to be Tabitha (the daughter) ~ twitching my nose all over the
place. One Halloween, I dressed up as a witch. Even though it was
"unoriginal," almost every year, I wanted to be a witch. My mom always
scoffed and said "Why do you want to be a witch?!" And of course,
there's my obsession with Harry Potter.
In my last email to you, I told you that when I took the Doreen
Virtue quiz, I was "teetering" on being a Wise One. Honestly, it
originally came up that I had more "trues" in that section than
"falses." I was surprised by this...and didn't even know what a "Wise
One" was until I googled it. I didn't understand it...how *I* could be
a Wise One. I went back to look at the questions for the quiz...and
knew that two of my answers I was unsure of; it could be true OR false
~ for example, it asked if I studied astrology or tarot...well, I never
"studied it-studied it," but I have an interest in it. I take
astrology quizzes, I read my astrology, etc. So, that's why I said
that I was "teetering" on being a Wise One.
As I journaled, I examined my present life...A week or so ago, I was confused to as why I chose my parents to be my parents (or why they were chosen for me) if I was indeed a MerAngel. I
then realized that my dad could possibly be a mer-fairy...of course, not
totally recognizing that fact. ;-) He loves lakes, ponds, woods... he enjoys nature, and he's very playful.
My mom...on the other hand...while she can joke around and lighten up
from time to time, she's mostly serious. Practical. But looking back
on it all this morning...I think my mom was either my mom in my
past life as a witch or she was an older sister; she was someone who
looked after me, and someone I looked up to. Even though my mom is
conservative and pretty grounded in "reality," (a) I know she does
believe in spirits, and (b) she also LOVES Harry Potter ~ she even
reread all the books after reading the 7th. So, in looking at why my
parents now are my parents, I needed someone from that life and from my
mer-life to be with me and look over me in this life. My dad, I think,
was probably a good ol' uncle or distant cousin of some sort, but
someone I truly loved in my mer-life. Things came together more as I
thought about what might've happened in my life as a witch. I think I
died young, as a teenager. Like I said, I don't think i was burned at
the stake. What, I think, might've happened is that I committed
suicide. I think the people in the village found out or accused me of
being a witch and had sentenced me to death, but before that could
happen, I drowned myself. I have a fear of drowning ~ for some reason,
I feel like that would be the worst way to die...even though, I know
burning to death would be horrible, too!!! Drowning scares me more.
Funny that I should think that in knowing I'm a Mer-Angel...but putting
that together with my life as a witch, maybe I knew then that I was
from that realm, and perhaps I thought that in drowning myself, I would
be back with my mer-family. I'm also wondering if I might've used a
knife or some sort of razor to cut myself ~ my wrists, neck before I
jumped in because knives and razors give me the chills ~ especially
seeing or the thought of it slicing the wrist or neck...uuugggh...
There's a scene in "Psycho" where he's determinedly washing blood off
his hands, and that seems eerily familiar to me. Also, going back to
the burning at the stake ~ I was in a show called "Camelot" back in
2000...the show ended with Gwenyvere burning at the stake. I don't
exactly remember how they staged it, but I do remember the stakes being
up, and they might've put her up there, then closed the curtains,
darkened the stage, or had a skrim for the burning scene. But it
creeped me out...looking back on it, I might've remembered that being
my "fate" ~ the fate I decided to run away from. Oh, and funny enough,
I was in my high school production of "The Crucible."
Then looking back to when I was a baby...or at least the stories I
heard about when I was a baby...I cried A LOT. I wouldn't go to anyone
BUT my mom...sometimes my dad, I think. But definitely not anyone
else. I would wail and scream. Hm, could be a similar thing to what
you went through in not trusting any adults. This past also could
explain why my parents didn't have me join the community pool, or have
me around a lot of water activities ~ except for swim lessons.
This realization...especially with my mom, made me cry quite a
bit!!! And it seriously made talking to her today a lot easier than
it has previously. My mom and I usually talk for quite a while despite
the feelings of differences I feel between us. We don't typically lack
in conversation, but at the same time, I still don't tell her
everything because I know she won't understand. Today, though, even
though I still didn't tell her everything, the
conversation was much easier, and I was able to "look" at her with even
more love because I know that she was my support system back then...and
she really still is now. Her over-protectiveness and over-concern of
me is just her way, and it will always be there. And really, this is
something I should know or have known, but I like knowing that it just
always has been...even going back to Salem Witch Trials time. You
know, I think there's even a part of her that's upset with me for
leaving them like that. I think she believed that the ruling could've
And the fairy card I pulled this morning..."Trust Your Instincts." ...Wow.
