Let’s Talk Witch – Respect for Water

Let’s Talk Witch – Respect for Water

Respect for Water Water, like all the elements, can bless, or kill. A real understanding of the immense force of all the elements is essential to understanding our true place in the world. The very noise of the ocean, so soothing when you meditate from the right distance, can buffet your sensibilities, too. Similarly, waves of emotion can cleanse us or, bursting out inappropriately, can be profoundly damaging. Water can glamour us; stay aware, to learn life lessons about balance, allowing grace and beauty to enter. We are small, but we have a right to our place in the world; we can also be mighty in our effect, so we should deal compassionately with each other. And, like the tides, our fortunes will wax and wane. This is being human, being alive. Be joyful!

Water takes the line of least resistance, yet remains completely itself. Waves may fret around large obstructions, but the river’s impetus carries it inexorably onward. Water constantly moves in a cycle, evaporating, becoming clouds and dispersing as rain, hail, or sleet to rejoin the earth or sea. Amphibians and many insects live dual lives between water and the land. These are seed-thoughts for visualizations, which will keep us on course in the changing, moving flow of life.

Whether presently in the shallows or combating the rapids, feel the joy of life! And remember water’s role in transporting us. In your mind’s eye, take a magical barge and then, by the power of magical imagination, allow the boat to travel with you to the place you wish to be— the safe harbour of the future you wish for yourself, where you are loved, secure, and content. A place where you can express your true self absolutely. Where the life you live is magical; where how you think reflects back into the world, connecting you to its subtle changes … Our brains are 70 percent water, the feeling element. Take the lessons of water deep into your being. Embrace love and life in all its fullness; drink pure water; gaze deep into the well… You are not only nymph, water sprite, or merman, but ruler of your life. Celebrate!

Wishing You A Super, Fantastic Tuesday, my dear brothers & sisters!

What’s Up This Fine Tuesday Morning? I guess it is fine if you are a Penguin, lol! I think the high today is suppose to be 4 degrees, a heat wave baby! You will have to excuse me for being silly. I have been up since 1:30 this morning. I woke up wide awake. So I couldn’t sleep and I went to working on the store. I have added lots of new items, if you haven’t visited since 1:30 this morning, lol! I also changed the name a little bit. I got to thinking “Witches of the Wild Woods” could be a blog or another site. It gave no indication we were trying to sell anything. So I changed it to The Wild Woods Apothecary, now that gives you the idea we are trying to sell something. I am beginning to think I just want a site with the word “apothecary” in it.

I was thinking as a grand opening special to all my dear friends here, I would have an extra special Raffle. How about a Raffle for a $50.00 shopping spree in the store? Would that interest you? You could use the ticket all at one time or a little bit at a time, whatever you want to do. I have got to make up the golden ticket and if you are interested, we will have the raffle. Just let me know if this sounds like a good idea or not.

Now I am going to run and get my rump busy before I fall asleep at the computer.

Have a very blessed day, my friends!

Luvs & Hugs,

Lady A
