I recently decided to step away from my coven for a year. I feel called to spend some time teaching myself so I can better teach those who have come to our group. This leave will be starting at Imbolc (February 2). Imbolc is a time of new beginnings and it seemed like the perfect date to start my inner journey into more advanced studies.
I am pretty excited about this and plan on writing about my advanced year and a day experience. I haven’t decided if I want to go about it on a weekly or daily basis. I am still working out some of the details on what I want to learn and work on. I will probably start with meditation as I still have some problems in that area.
Lots of cussing involved in this one. If that offends you, do not read this.
What to do when other Pagans threaten you…
I was just dragged into a “thing” without wanting to be. I even said a few times, “I do not want to be involved. I don’t know these people and I feel like I don’t know the whole story.” Somehow that became skewed and I am now an instigator in some sort of coven coup. I fucking hate people sometimes. It’s shit like this that makes me realize why I am such an antisocial nobody. I am happier that way.
This has now evolved (or devolved… depending on how one looks at it) into what has been termed a “Witch War.” I didn’t call it that. I didn’t even realize this was even going on. However, I have taken offense to it as I see someone has threatened not only me, but my family. My reasoning is thus: Wars have collateral damage. It is part of what a war is. Whether it is bullets, missiles, or energy, there is some sort of splash involved and an innocent has a chance of being hurt.
My response to this:
First, I saged and set up protection for my house and family.
Then I messaged everyone involved. I told them they were ALL a bunch of fuck-ups who needed to get their heads out of their asses, sit down and actually talk to each other.
I am still pretty ticked (as can be seen by my potty mouth) that I was dragged into something that I felt I had no reason to be involved in at all. I know some of these people have tried to message me back, but they are just going to have to wait til this momma has calmed down. I have enough drama at home with my own children. I should not need to babysit adults too.
