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 [...]

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 [...]

Community Status

It's amazing to walk into work and everyone is all "Hey, Carol!" "Carol, how's it going?" "Morning Carol! We still up for game night?" Even customers are all "how did you get into work? You need a ride home? How's Syrus doing?" Slowly, but surely, community is working its way into my life, and I [...]

The Smallest Connection

To be human is to grieve, because if we grieve we are in touch with the swelling of emotions that make us so complex, the glue that permanently connects the puzzle pieces and fragments that make us human compared to the clinical diagnosis that seeks to pull us to pieces for fragmented labels of understanding.

I did my first ever Tarot reading today, and it was amazing! I asked what the year had in store for me based on the areas the spread provides, and after a good deal of time spent reading the meaning of the cards and interpreting them, this was what I had. Aries: Persona - The [...]

Happy Thanksgiving: The Day of Gratitude

OMG I overdid it this year! 😂 All this for 2 people; I should have bought a rotisserie chicken but hey, I pulled all this off for $50 and a free turkey!  Prior too the traditional dinner festivities, I put on my gratitude event! I left the baggies scattered around town in popular places where [...]

Reward Over Fear

At first I was hesitant about it... "Taking Syrus for a run probably isn't a good idea; he's a toe walker after all, and I don't know what the impact on his feet would be." Then I started running back and forth between my bedroom and the hallway like I use too when I did [...]

Happy Samhain

Samhain or Halloween is a pagan festival that honours the cycle of death and rebirth. This death and rebirth energy is further amplified this year due to the Scorpio New Moon, which falls one day before Samhain. Scorpio energy is all about death and rebirth. The death process is about going into the dark spaciousness [...]
