My son is going in surgery tomorrow

My Daddy used to say “The boy needs a trip behind the barn.” But you can’t do that today.
At this point he has made some very poor decisions that are ill effecting his family. He is responsible for his actions. No one put a gun to his head and said do drugs or else. Patience is something you have given him in spades. As with the chronic alcoholic, there comes a time when you can no longer enable them. You tell him that you no longer will allow him to destroy his family, no more. He is your child and you will always love him, but he has to grow up and man up. Once he is no longer a minor, the judicial system won’t treat him so kindly, he may be destined for hard time.
As for your brother, I think that’s a wonderful idea! It might just give you the closure you need. So sorry about your Gran. I’ll keep her in my thoughts.
Take care my girl and remember your heart is good and you soul clean.
Be blessed. G



Life has thrown many challenges at you recently, @Jeannie1- this is a huge burden for anyone to bear. Sending you so much love and light in this though time :pray::heart:

You and your son are ever in my thoughts, Jeannie. I also hope that he gets the help he needs and can find his way onto a better path. Like you, I wish that we could do everything for those we love, but it is true that sometimes they must find their way on their own. We can only support them with love and believing they can eventually do it :handshake:

I think you are so strong and brave for continuing to move forward despite the hardships with your son. There are dark moments where everything piles up and it can seem impossible to keep going- just remember that you have a coven full of light at your back! We are here to help you keep your beautiful flame of hope burning brightly :candle:

Stay strong, my friend! Love and light to you :fire:


I’ll keep you and your son in my thoughts :pray:


I found a couple of lovely rituals for saying farewell:
On this site, look up " Wiccan Prayer for Death of a Loved One / Loss of a Pet and/or Spell for a Loved One who Passed Away. Let me know what you decide and I’ll do the ceremony with you on the same day and time. xoxox


Rowan that was well said! Sometimes you just need to say something you already know is true, to believe.
You can look in the mirror and say blah, blah, blah…I think. But if someone else tells you the same thing, you look at it differently and can say “Yea! That’s right.”


Hi Coven,
Update with my son the judge ordered him to go into rehab. All the prayers and there is light at the end of the tunnel! Know all’s I need to do is believe.
Thanks so much for all the light that has been shined on me!
Blessed Be!


That’s wonderful news :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: This is the motivation your son needs to get stronger :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I will keep lighting that candle :candle:


Light, love and prayers your way for you, your son and family…

Blessed be


Thank you Lisa that is the motivation we all want!!! :kissing_heart:
Thanks Walter :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Hopefully the Judge saying will give him the kick in the pants he needs. I’ll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. :candle: :purple_heart: :pray:


The Coven is with you @Jeannie1!! No degree of darkness can extinguish that flame :candle: Many Blessings!! :pray:


Awesome news @Jeannie1 ! That’s what you needed to hear. It’s a step towards his recovery. I know you’re heart feels a bit relieved.
Blessed Be,


I am practicing taking the mask off, putting my heart and soul in the flames! So many years I put on mask so that way people would like me. Know I am practicing being authentic! I appreciate your words that are ow so powerful! Tomorrow is court and I will advocate for my son and hope that the justice system will give us the help he needs. I will be wearing green to help me with the throat chakra! I will tell the judge that my brother and mom died due to drugs and it is my sincere help that he uses his power to bring justice. Tomorrow I will shine in court!

That was so empowering thanks Francisco!
Many Blessings back at you!
Blessed be!!!
Let the wheels turn!!


You’ll do great @Jeannie1! I have faith in you!


I went to see my son Andrew in the juvenile court system and asked the tarot, what can you tell me before I go see my son? I used the shapeshifter tarot! I did a past, present, future spread.

Fire element (swords) 2 blindness
So if you notice there is a viper
Polarity, fear, transformation

Six of wands
Success, news, advancement

Pretty good reading I thought!


I hope this means he will be renewed in the future and it will stick. I’ll keep praying for you! :candle:


I’m so sorry to hear this, sending love and support for you and your son, my heart truly goes out to you @Jeannie1 :


I so understand what you mean, Jeannie, I spent the better part of 60 years being “on”. Like an actress on the stage when you perform, you’re “On” and when you aren’t, you’re ‘off’, that’s just it, On= best daughter, excellent nurse, great sister. But somewhere along the road, I, Barbara, got lost, became invisible and after a while, I became a robot.
When you said, Mask. It all clicked, I had been hiding behind a mask, to the point where it hurt to take it off. I had become so merged with that “perfect person” and no longer knew who I was. I’m just now learning. And, you know what? I kind of like me. I didn’t always.
Oh, My darling Girls and Boys, live and learn. Grab life with both hands and hold on tight. Respect your elders, of course, but remember, there are times when there is a need to assert yourself.
Do not get trapped in being everything others want you to be because it is a trap. Done from love on their part! They may say “You should be a nurse or a doctor.” But what if it’s not what you wanted?
You, as a human being have every right to be anything you want. Artist, singer, race car driver or Witch, don’t wait 60 years and say to yourself, “I could have been so much more.” or “What if.”
Regret is a bitter pill to swallow.
For life and love, Blessed Be.
And so mote it be!


My apologies for not responding right away! You are right on you said,

For once in my life I am trying to make Jeannie Happy and your right if that means being a witch or anything! I Jeannie am trying to figure out what makes me happy! I don’t want to live my life in pain and agony! I would like to find my peace.
So I wanted to share with you the good news in regards to my beautiful son. He was recently sentenced for a violation of probation, and he went to court and the judged ordered him to go to rehabilitation. I am so happy, because I heard him say out loud that he wanted to get better and stay clean. The blindness has been lifted and he is taking the mask off and taking a look at himself.

As for me I can finally rest on my pillow at night without fearing that my son will die anymore. I have some relief knowing that he will in treatment for 3 months and when he comes back he will have a new perspective on life.

I just want to thank the coven for and you Garnet for allowing me to vent when I was feeling very low! I feel l wont be dragging my feet in the morning anymore. There has been so many prayers and I just want to share my gratitude. Thank you for praying for me and my son!

What I have learned is that it is okay to have a soft heart for others but even though I have a soft heart does not mean that I will take any shit! Yes I have compassion for others but that does not make me week. I have strong bones from the crown to the root. I am going to shine and wear my crown on the top of my head for it to shine. I am a Goddess and my Goddess loves me! But dont take any shit!
Now I have the time to dig in with my dear Goddess Hecate and find her keys and her wisdom and she will help me to do my part. I hope that you all will continue to pray that I continue my healing journey with Hecate and help me to keep her keys!
Thank you all so very much for sharing all your wisdom with me!
Garnet I just want you to know I accidentally didn’t send this out last time and this was the last report. I guess I didn’t hit the reply button.

I just wanted you to know that Andrew as of a couple days ago left the rehab he is now on the run again and he has hepatitis c!
I will keep you guys in touch thank you for all your prayers love and light just know that I am still going to be OK! Even if I didn’t get what I wanted I know that somehow it’s all gonna work out!
Sorry I didn’t send this earlier!



Thanks for the update, Jeannie :pray: It sounds like the situation with your son continues to evolve- I am glad you have found more confidence in yourself and discovered the strength in your compassionate heart :heart:

I hope your son continues to heal, and that he knows what an amazing mother he is blessed with! You are both in my thoughts. Love and Light!
