Since my last blog post my life has been turned upside down, in a sense. At the beginning of this year I suddenly found myself faced with the fact that I would be moving from Texas to California. I was born in California and I have family there, so this will not be the traumatic culture shock I experienced when I moved to Texas 14 years ago.
I have also had to close my business, and that, plus changing houses, has caused me to have to reinvent myself….again.I use the popular phrase “reinvent” because I feel that is what I have done over the years. I decide how I will express myself to the world. Five years ago I went from being a teacher of 5 and 6 year olds to a healer, therapist and counselor. I was doing pretty well at it, too. I got a spot doing readings at the top psychic fair in the metroplex. The phone rang all the time. Life was good.
So why did I agree to the move? Well, I expect to become a grandma in the next year or so. I have also missed my family enormously over the years, and even though my magickal cottage has been my haven and source of constant energy, I must leave it behind. People, especially family, are more important.
So we found our perfect new home. It will be a wonderful magickal cottage; of that I am sure! I know all will be well, but THE LAST FEW MONTHS HAVE BEEN SOOOO STRESSFUL! Pardon my venting, but the energy in my home has been so chaotic. You see, we decided the expense of hiring a moving company would be too great, so we are moving ourselves with the help of Uhaul and PODs. At one point the boxes were stacked so high it was hard to move through the house. Next week the final load will be taken (via a POD) to our new home in California, so right now the house is fairly clutter free. The dust is starting to settle, as they say.
One of the biggest lessons (I always look for the lesson ;-)) that I have learned is that there is really something to all this energy / fengshuy stuff. OK, I already knew that, but sometimes we need a slap in the face to remind us. Yesterday I cleaned, lit candles and enchanted the space I have called home these many years. I feel much better. Whew! What I failed to remember in the midst of all this chaos was that the sanctity of my home was not lost. I just failed to see it from behind all those boxes. This morning I reread my post of Feb. 24, 2012 about the Divine Domicile. Ah yes, recognizing what is there is what is needed. There is really nothing to be found because it was never lost.
A little less than two weeks and I will be discovering the magick in our next magickal cottage. I look forward to all the wonderful energies and good entities I will meet. Oh, and I have been reassured by my own guardians that they will be coming with me on the move, with the exception of the earth dragon who sits atop the house. He will remain to guard my son and his family who will be taking care of the house for the next year. Our new magickal cottage already is being watched over by a blue water dragon, and she is doing an excellent job!
