Finding yourself after death

These last two-three years have brought immense changes for me. I came out as non-binary, left my husband, changed my name, found my soul mate, shed a bunch of weight after surgery that I have likened to Herne’s accident with the stag. I have shed so much of my old self, through the shedding of… Continue reading Finding yourself after death

To the Sabbat I will Ride

Brightest Blessings of the Solstice to you all. I’ve always loved the Winter Solstice. I’ve always loved being cold, knowing I could rug up. I love the sound of rain on the metal roof, the freshness in the air, the greening of the hills and how the eucalyptus leaves get this different haze as the… Continue reading To the Sabbat I will Ride

How “coming out” strengthened my relationship with the Gods

Recently this image has been recirculating on FB. It is a capture of a tweet by Sir Ian McKellen expressing how he’s never met a person who regretted coming out [as LGBTQIA].

The Changing Relationship with Divine and with Self

Since “coming out” as non-binary, since changing my name within my community, I’ve entered this new level of self discovery that I wasn’t ultimately prepared for. Having some-what of an identity crisis at 34 wasn’t something I expected to happen, nor was I expecting what was the follow: so how does being non-binary fit into Paganism… Continue reading The Changing Relationship with Divine and with Self

Journey of the Fool at Midwinter

Sometimes you need to do what is right for your mentality, even if it puts your body under physical stress. Feel free to disagree with me, but the back/knee/hip pain was absolutely worth the drive to Stanwell Park Beach to watch the sun rise on Midwinter’s Day. Six weeks ago I hurt my back and… Continue reading Journey of the Fool at Midwinter
