Why Purple?

Yet another post days or weeks in the making

Purple, to me, is a colour of leaning, of magic, of personal growth, of beauty, of richness (not just monetary), of inner calm.

The purples and violets are my favourite colours some thing draws me to them.

My favourite crystal, and the one I first bought when learning about crystal healing for the first time, is amethyst.

Is my Aura purple? No - my aura is blue/green (or at least it used to be) but my heart is.

Purple is associated with the crown chakra and thus our connection with the cosmos.

Emily Gems says:
Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple is a good color to use in meditation
I think that has a lot of truth for me within it!

And No..... nothing to do with the "purple haze"!

About This Blog and Me - Attempt Two

As I had to post before the last one was finished I thought I'd try again!

This blog is all about my journey along my path and where it takes me (Or I take it).

It is for me to see where I have come from and what I have learnt and it's to share that with anyone who's interested or maybe just nosey. It's about my emotional and spiritual growth. About my quest for wisdom and knowledge.

I feel a call to nature and healing. I want to follow in the footsteps of the wise woman and midwife. I want to use herbs, energy work and magic for good, for healing and helping people. It is in may nature help.

I hope I will be able to document each landmark I pass and use this to understand my self better and help me with where to go next. This may and up as a long list of questions or a collection of experiences - I'll find out when I get there.

A little about me:

I'm in my mid 20s and already feeling old. I was brought up an Anglican christian but it was never forced on me - I just happened to have a Christan family and went to an Anglican school.
I think this might have something to do with why I occasionally will blaspheme with a christian slant. I have also been know to use "Gordon Bennett" and "Blooming Nora" but that doesn't mean I believe in them either! ;)

I have interests in:
  • Healing using herbs, crystals, energy work and naturopathy
  • Photography and photo editing
  • Computer games (PC mainly but a little PS3 now)
  • Paganism and witchcraft
  • Midwifery
  • Reading (factual stuff about what I've put in this list and Fantasy)

Not quite sure what else put put here so I'll post it and I'll see if I have anything to add later and I'll add it to a new post (this post has been in progress for at least a fortnight of lunch times - good grief I'm slow)

Any comments are appreciated - it's be nice to know if there's anyone out there reading this and anything that gives me something to think about is always good.

My Poor Love!!!

I just cannot concentrate today!

My cat is having his leg amputated after a cancerous bone tumour broke/dislocated his elbow joint.

The vet seems pretty positive that he will make a full recovery but I suppose we'll see after the surgery. They haven't been able to find out if it's spread at all but I suppose we'll find out in time.

I am miles away and I feel so useless!!! I'm not versed in magic as yet and I have never learnt distance healing. Even if i were next to him I don't think I could get into the mindset to heal anyway!

Please - if anyone is out there reading this - send love, healing and positive vibes! Anything you can do I will be grateful for!

About This Blog and Me - Attempt one

The unfinnished post below was written this afternoon and saved before I had to dash out! as I left my office the rain started. When I got the where I was going it began to thunder. When I left the sun was shining brightly and the birds were singing in the trees. Some times I wonder if my thoughts are listened to!!!

I suppose an explanation of this blog may be in order should anyone stumble upon it!

This is a log of my wanderings along the path to find myself and my spirituality.
I believe it is probably a pagan path that I am walking, but that is one thing I will find out by learning about both Paganism and myself.

I am drawn to nature and nurturing. I love the smell of the rain and the rumble of thunder. I love the feel of the sun on my skin. I love the sound of the birds singing to and shouting at one another. I want to help people in a way that truly makes a difference. I feel my vocation is to be a midwife. I wish to be like the midwives and wise women of old (in my own way).

A Few Steps In

Well I thought I would have written in this more by now but I have really been to0 busy.

I'm writing in it now as I'm waiting for someone and I can't concentrate on the work I am supposed to be doing - it's not the easiest of things being all concentration and no fun!

I have got though a lot of Complete Idiot's Guide to Wicca and Witchcraft - by Denise Zimmermann and Katherine. I was reading this when I had my worried about Gods and Goddesses and Iam now not bothered by my worries. I am happy with the stories about the Lord and Lady and don't mind right now what I believe and what I don't about it. Just because I don't feel comfortable with the concept of entities does not mean they do or don't exist and I think I'll find a place I want to settle in with my beliefs in my own time.

I am truly loving my journey along my path - the scenery is beautiful, the birds are singing, the weather is warm and I'm sure I can hear some interesting folk just around the next bend!
