Thanks! I’m glad you liked it!
They are very good, I always to do the ritual or spell right away & do them all! But I’m getting through the book first. Some of them just are tweaks to things you may already do. I have found that with a couple of the meditation things & relaxation before any ritual or any tools you’ll be using. It’s a great book for motivational walk-throughs.
that’s so cute. Bless her!
Merry Weekend to All!
I know you have already closed the challenge, but I still wanted to share my New Year…hm… I would call it a huge achievement for my mental and spiritual self, which I think applies to this challenge.
To highlight the importance of it to me, I need to tell you something which still doesn’t come easy… I’m not looking for sympathy, it’s a part of my recovery to talk about what I’ve been through.
Just over two year ago I went through a literal hell. I met a guy, who claimed and showed me that he can be the best person in the world. He will protect me, support me and give me what I need in life. Everything was honky dory while we were dating. Until I said ‘yes’ to him and we entered into a full relationship… All hell broke loose… He turned by 180 degrees to a maniacal, possessive, controlling and aggressive freak. I didn’t understand what happened, I gave my heart on a sleeve and got abuse in return. To this day I’m not quite sure what happened, because everything was happening so fast. At first I tried, but the minute he put his hands on me I took my beloved kitty (bless her, she was protecting and watching over me the entire time) and ran for our dear life. To be honest I was more afraid he will harm her more than me. That would be something I would not be able to forgive myself. He was stalking me and trying to get in contact for a while, but I didn’t want anything to do with that man. Thank the higher powers he left the country and I truly hope I will never see him again.
But in running like this I left this door slightly open and it was influencing and weighing on my psyche for all this time… My current relationship is suffering, because I have a lot to deal with and sometimes I don’t know how to channel the negative energies that gather up what the past comes chasing…
However, on the night of the New Year I wrote him a message through a channel he can’t get back to me by. I wrote what he did to me, how it affected me and the truth that I still hold a grudge to his actions. I just kind of let it pour out there. Everything I was holding inside towards him just went there. And honestly? I felt a huge weight lifted from my chest. I felt free from his influence, first time in all those years. I finally felt like those doors have closed shut for good. I still know I have a long way before I recover from those events, but this was a huge step for me and I’m grateful to the Wiccan path for giving me enough peace and courage to face my demon head on! I finally feel that I can move forward with my life and develop in every aspect.
I’m shaking writing this, but I know it’s good and I hope you will not mind me sharing an experience like that on this forum.
Merry Meet Saturday!
I’m sorry that you had that experience, it certainly is jarring to the mind, body, & behaviors. I’m happy that this year you were able to release those thoughts & feelings to start of your New Year!
Even though the challenge is closed it’s perfectly fine to share any experiences related to it on this thread while the thread is still open for comments. You can also start a thread in A Sacred Space category, you must be logged into your account to interact with that category & have an active subscription.

I hope that it serves you well! I’m so happy that you feel lighter & things should or hopefully will start flowing easier for you! If you ever want or need to talk, feel free to send a message if you need to & it will get answered as soon as we see it.
Absolutely be proud of your achievement & movement forward on your path!
my dear @Viss you are amazing! I can resonate with so many things in this post. You are so strong, what you’ve been through is not easy. Also, my husband had to go through a lot too helping me heal from past trauma. You are a Warrior woman!! I know it’s sad too, but I feel so strongly that your kitty was happy to be taken if it meant keeping you safe. Good grief just imagining that happening in my head is giving me knots in my stomach for you. So amazingly proud of you for letting him go and I am so excited to see how you as a free soul move on to new heights.
Thank you so much for the kind words and support @Siofra_Strega and @LadyAuld.ofChico, I’m so glad I came across this wonderful Conven. You’re such an accepting and amazing community
You’re very welcome @Viss, I hope you have time to look around & join any topics that may interest you!
You are amazing, Viss- that was no easy nor simple thing that you did and I completely understand that it was an emotional experience for you! Yet nonetheless, you overcome your fear and you took a huge step forward for yourself. Gosh, I’m so proud of you- you are so amazingly strong!
Thank you for taking the time to share- your story is really inspirational. Everyone fights their own demons, and although they all go by different names and we all have different struggles, hearing a story like yours is really powerful. You are a real beacon of light for everyone going through troubling times!
Beautiful work and thank you again- sending big hugs and lots of love your way!
