Merry meet everyone! This past year and a half has been transformative for me like some others here whose introductions I have read. The pandemic has created a perfect storm of introspection borne of prolonged isolation (which, if I’m being honest was not hard at all for me), anxiety about life, the universe, and everything, YouTube and The Goddess. I am building relationships Cerridwen and Lord Ganesh as well as reading about Norse and Celtic deities primarily.
I’m in a period of great transition now as health issues have combined with realizing over the past year or so that I am autistic and am able to look at painful periods of my life in a new way and reframe those experiences with new understandings. I am also able to look at the many gifts being autistic has given me such as my very strong sense of fairness and equality that has always formed a core part of my personality and led me to appreciate a very diverse and interesting way of looking at life and am learning to think about the ways that the Goddess has been influencing my life. I also am learning to appreciate my ability to focus on special interests and get immersed in reading and research.
I’m very eclectic in my interests, witchcraft and the Pagan belief systems but am especially drawn to green witchcraft, tarot, crystals and would very much be interested in training in herbal medicine and would love to learn to grow my own herbs and plants for health and magick myself.
In my budding relationships with both Cerridwen and Lord Ganesh who are both patrons of the arts especially writing and artistic inspiration, I feel a monumental shift in my world view and am examining my life and starting to notice all the synchronicity that has awakened me in my Crone years.
As my 50th birthday came this past May, I’ve reflected on my life thus far and am trying to be kind to myself for there was knowledge about myself that had yet to make itself known to me. I only know how I’ve always felt out of place, different and not quite human. I’ve always had an affinity or nature, camping and hiking, and have a special affinity with animals.
I enjoy creating art, am learning how to paint and draw in different styles, writing stories and am trying my hand at poetry. I enjoy crafting all sorts of stuff. I’ve created mini shelves with amazon boxes, paper mache and paint. I find small containers and make travel alters, travel shrines and am so excited to see what others are making and to make friends and meet mentors as I ascend to the magickal life I’m meant to have.
Most of all, I am looking forward to meeting others who are drawn to magick and learning from everyone.
Blessed Be, Kat
