Changes in the wind

It's said that good things come in 3's, and after 16 grueling months of trying to survive, we're finally moving into a place of our own. I despise Rochester, and both the crime rate and poor education scare me, but at least we'll finally have a place of our own. Originally I'd driven down Chester [...]

My Second Podcast

I wish I could snag the first podcast off the other app, but it won't let me. I switched too Podbean because it allows for more talk time, easier layout, and it's designed well. From now on my podcast will be through here. My second one was more of a spur of the moment thing [...]

Not sure if I'm gonna stick with this app, but I'll give it a shot http://www.spreaker.com/show/carol-simpsons-show

Renouncing Seventh-Day Adventism

It just occurred to me that now that I'm becoming a pagan retailer, my membership with the SDA's was never formally dissolved... where I plan on eventually opening up a Coven under Church exemption status, I should probably do that... however, I need to wait until the business is actually generating momentum beforehand, as I [...]

Adventures in EMDR Part 3: Decoding What Crazy Means (All Aboard)

About an hour has passed since I came out of therapy. The healing mind is still attempting to nurture me with messages that present an authentic level of self-compassion that feels new to me on some level, as the focus of this session was to pick a sentence associated with multiple memories of varying levels [...]

Adventures in EMDR Part 1: The Athame turned on it’s end

I'm drawn to think of Pia Mellody and love addiction.... the process of overusing imagination as a dream world for escape. I'm amazed in truth that Keri was able to take what I thought was a weapon of destruction and use it as a tool of healing so suddenly. The Athame, the magical sword on [...]

Tales of a Tarot Reader Pt. 1

About 2 or 3 weeks ago I started my own pagan consult business, but it's mostly paid tarot readings. I sat at the computer, typed up a flyer, printed out 10, and on the second hand-out at 5 monkeys tattoo, the woman was like "Oh my god, you do tarot readings? You have time to [...]

The Karma Carrier

I'm more or less reposting this article for self-reflection, as I seem to strongly feel this applies to me and would like to dig a little more.... recently I've wanted to do a very technical spell to cut the Karma chord with my mother, since I can't help but feel in part that the circumstances [...]

Soul Baring

Why does falling for someone have this weird obsessive intensity to it? For the past couple of days I find myself wanting to lie in bed and think of him... Endless sarcasm, deeper connections, too many positions and bedroom games that I've rehearsed before I've ever laid a finger on him.  Thankfully he likes me [...]
