The journey of embracing my inner WITCH came from seeing the magick in nature. The moment I acknowledged my plants to be magickal is when this blissful opening of the WITCH inside of me came Alive.
I begun to find holistic ways to be present & grounded, to be mindful, to look into thyself and be aware of the magic all around us. You become appreciative, you don’t take anything for granted that the earth and mother earth has given us.
My ancestral pandora boxes began to open up. I began to gather my gardening skills, herbal knowledge, intuition, and plant medicine and joined these skills together. I begin with creating a blog, which took me many endless days with no sleep! I self taught my media knowledge! I created my blog on mental health, to sharing love letters and now my witches magick! My blog has become a combination of all the magick and journey’s that make up who I am!
In sharing my smoke-bundles with the world has become an honour. I find grounding through creating spell-jars, smoke-bundles, sometimes fairy lands, mystic bath salts and many other inspiring crafts.
Each night I cleanse myself & space with a new mantra each time. I end my day in gratitude to help ease the chaos of the day. I want to always try to stay present within me so my spirit can continue to grow.
I take evening walks to observe and be connected to nature. I gather tools such as; juniper, pine and cedar, to add these to my spells or crafts.
Juniper is magickal in its scent, energies and its herbal magick! Juniper is so pretty due to its space & berries. The juniper represents in strength, carries wisdom, is useful in magick & health, and stunning. It can survive harsh weather and with very little water.
Pine is known for the hearths & home protection. Pine holds its colour all year round and is a beauty during a snowfall. It represents healing, protection, cleansing, and money. Burning pine needles brings protection to your home. Having pinecone s throughout the home wards of evil entities.
Cedar is known to repel negativity and bring in purity. It is as sacred as white sage. It helps the hearth and home balance. It clears your shadow and brings in a sense of grounding. Cedar is often burned during prayer and chanting.
Gather cedar on your walks and bring it home. Place a few branches along the doorways and at your altar.
Gather your cauldron or burner and place a charcoal disk. Light the disk and place one clove, piece of pinecone, small amount of cedar and s piece of cinnamon.
Allow it to smoke up and move the spoke around your self, space and outside under the moon.
Light a orange candle and state: mother earth embrace me with you magick to be able to share the brightness that shine within me with those around me.
Mantra: I am here for self snd others. I embrace the acts of kindness and paying it forward.
Then one day this week pay it forward to a stranger with a tea or coffee or food.
This will bring in grounding, abundance and gratitude. Make sure to explore with your herbs, flowers and begin manifesting and documenting your magical spells/ dreams and hopes.
I wish all of my followers a wknd that brings in new beginnings, moving forward, happiness and a tranquil heart!
I have pondered what should I share and where should I begin… I have encountered so many struggling as our world changes. I have to say I write this blog with a very heavy heart. I have been travelling the streets of Toronto and they are no longer the same. The streets are bare of shops that have closed down and you see way too many condo buildings being built. Toronto will soon be the concrete CITY. What saddens me… is how many are paying attention to the changes and its impact for the future. I walked along Trinity park and tears ran down my cheek, as all I see are too many tents with people with no homes. Our city states that its better for them to be in tents, as this reduces their changes of getting in contact with COVID-19. The homeless pandemic will now definitely be in peoples faces and maybe this will impact them to speak up? I will share with you all… so many people walk that park as if it is a normal day and nobody acknowledges these tents… that are home too many… in such a RICH city.
This is when I state, why are we able o get almost 2 million people to celebrate the RAPTORS win but not to protest our homelessness pandemic, addictions and gang violence? I will say this out loud I was happy that the RAPTORS lost as I do not want anymore distractions in our city! I keep pondering what is the outcome of this economy for the world as they rapidly change many services to online, possibly most schools. Many people are going to lose their jobs and benefits but many are still busy shopping online. I tell everyone around me to save their money but not many are listening. Many believe our world will be going back to normal but I do not see this happening. We have commercials and advertisements with humanity in fashionable masks, they keep saying this is the new normal. Why would all these fashionable masks come onto the market? I feel it is terrible to market masks during a time we are being told that it is a pandemic and truly only level 3 medical masks really protect anyone. Again a world government encouraging you to be the consumer… to keep buying when many are struggling to even make ends meet.
I hear many enlightenment workers state that the USA is winning the fight against human trafficking but in Canada all I see are cases of human trafficking rises. I know for sure that crime rate is up in so many states, cities and countries. I am heart broken for the world and have no trust in these leaders around the world at all. This week in Canada we will find out how they expect to recovery budget losses. This is the funny thing… is that all government establishments never closed such as; gas stations, liquor stores, Beer stores, online sales of marijuana, cigarettes and now we have photo radar everywhere. In the month of August over 24, 000 traffic tickets were issued through photo radar cameras. I am not speaking about the individuals that push the limits but I am speaking about the everyday folks that try to do the right choice daily. FOR me I will never understand this and they are already recovering some losses… wouldn’t YOU SAY! Listen many will excuse things but when you have a government who’s MP returned travelling spending money… well that RIGHT there… shows the corruption in all governments and I do not believe they CARE that much about US. Since when… HISTORY does not lie… GREED we are surrounded by it. I will leave these thoughts here as I am flooded with many…
Lets discuss how to manage fear and anxiety:
We often allow our fears to guide our decisions and control our emotions. Fears will always be surrounded around us. The escapes are limited since we now have social media and television bombarding the world with negative messages. I have often shared about creating a simple gratitude morning and evening routine. This would be a wonderful strategy to create with your children and young adults. As they need something that they can hold onto and there is still so much to be grateful for. Even in our most trying times, which we can always find something that makes us smile!
It is said that planting your bare feet on grass and soil which creates positive sensations in your nervous system! It grounds you to the creator and the universe! That alone we can always be grateful for… create a gratitude list that represents your life. Complete this list with your family and begin with just two grateful statements.
Also becoming in habit of having meditation music in the background during morning routines, dinner, homework time, baths, and settling time.

It is extremely important to get into these positive habits during a world that is consistently changing so rapidly. You have to take breaks from your phones, laptops, television and be in silence. Please get a book and read again. Actually hold a book, turn the pages and get focused. We are all developing an ADHD mind and can no longer focus too long on one task. Ask yourself when you read an article, book, watching a movie.. how many of you are scrolling through different forms of social media at the same time??? STOP doing that as it is terrible for the functioning of your brain. When you are with your friends actually don’t take any pictures, nor make any posts for that one outing. Enjoy it as you would many years ago! We do not always need to share our story from a hour to hour basis.
I end this blog with gratitude and a meditation. I am grateful that I have many of you taking the time to read my post, to practise some of my suggestions and to even like the post. I am grateful that the creator gave me creativity to write, to blog, to love, and to create! I am utterly grateful for nature and everyday I enjoy their beautiful sounds and the smiles that they create each morning!
