Big Things Heading Our Way!

It’s been awhile since I have updated things around here. I have been asked to be a part of the Ask A Witch Panel in October at a local shop. Once they’ve created the event page on Facebook, I will post an event here.

I have been recently asked to take on students and have decided that this is something I am willing to take on. I am fleshing out curriculum and logistics. No getting excited just yet, this won’t be rolled out until AFTER October. I simply have so much planned for right now that I want to give this a lot of care and nurturing before I do it.

Today I am meeting with someone to discuss volunteering at the hospital and hopefully start working with people who are alone and dying. It feels important to start there when it comes to death midwifery. Who better to teach me then those who are afraid and alone? So many people see this vision of mine as an act of compassion, and it certainly is, but it’s also very much going to be my teacher. I am both nervous and excited for this leg of the journey!

Lastly, I have been trying hard to keep up with my personal writings. Journaling and poetry are my main focus. At some point I hope to write essays but not quite yet. I have recently submitted a poem to an anthology for Medusa and to We’Moon datebook for 2018. This morning I learned that my poem for the Medusa Anthology was accepted! You can see it on their blog, The Girl God. I won’t hear anything back from We’Moon for awhile and that’s okay. I am putting lots of good juju around it because I would love to see my name published (yea, that’s a bit of ego right there!).

Overall, things are incredible and feeling like I am getting them glued together into a solid picture. I am in love with my life and wouldn’t change it for the world! And as these new directions flesh out, there will be lots more posted here on the site to keep you all updated.

Blessed Be My Lovies!

Changes Abound

So I recently left a job……without a backup plan in place. And I have been taking this time to not only find some sort of income flow but also to consider a career change. I have been wanting (and have been called to) work in Death Midwifery. Overall the vision is for me to start working voluntarily through the hospital with people who are left alone while dying. Beyond that, the final outcome is one in which I still sit vigil but I have a business in which I offer funeral planning services. Think wedding planner but for death. It’s in my 2-5 year plan range. I have a few things I need to do in the coming weeks and then hopefully by the end of the year I will be actively sitting vigil.

It’s a slightly scary endeavor with changing careers later in life but also heading into unknown territory and how will I make this work? I have lots of support though and I am certainly grateful for all the people offering info and support. As more takes place, more will be posted here. Eventually this site will change to all the things I am doing rather than just the classes and scrying. Exciting, isn’t it?
