This card is just what I needed. This reading took plaCenter on July 28, 2016.
Earlier this morning I was having a body image problem. It was severe and I was ready to give up the fight to not just being skinny but also to being healthy.
Between the support of family and friends and then this reading I decided no matter what I’ve been through I will continue to fight to be healthy. Yes, I want to be skinny but healthy is the top priority.
No matter if I’m 450 pounds or 150 pounds I’ll probably continue to have an image problem. That’s just the way eating disorders work. My focus is to be healthy and that includes suppressing the eating disorder symptoms, too.
Being healthy comes from how and what we think about ourselves as much as it comes from the way we eat and exercise if not more. I’m extremely health conscious, most of the time.
Last night while reading I learned something about myself that I didn’t know and that’s I’ve been practicing magickal practices all of my life. Not only am I health conscious I’m trying to live the green. Lifestyle, which is what I was taught. I recycle. When camping or going into nature always leave it cleaner than you find it.

Third reading in a row the moon cycle card was drawn. The current position is the middle card. This time is set a side for deep breathing and meditation. What will happen will happen. There’s no need to stress of er what might be. The card to the right is the one for resolution or out-come. “Outdoors” or nature is the way to go. When I need to relax and re-enter nature is my friend. When I need to be able to focus on my writing, nature is usually where you can find me.
Being cooped up and inside can bring on stress, rid you of creativity, and bring home negativity. It’s time to get out, get moving, breathe fresh air, relax and more.
I walked out on to the front porch yesterday to do some coloring and writing. Just wanted a day all to myself to relax and do what I love to do but to my surprise there was this kitten jumping at my living room window trying to get it. She’s absolutely wonderful. I know we were meant to be together the moment I saw her. I sat down and took the lid off my cup so I could take a swallow of milk but then this little paw pulled my cup away from me. I looked at her, patted her head and said this is mine. She did it again so I sighed, not remembering whole milk is bad for kittens, and let her drink 2-3 ounces. She sat there and purred, marked and cuddled with me for about 2 hours. Her kitty momma came over to see where she was. Momma was skittish but eventually she came to me and I gave her some milk.
This is Patches, the kitten.
My bff came over after work and we went to town. We came back with a food dish, collar and are waiting for a engraved tag to come in from McKees (Chubbuck, Idaho). Bff went back to town and got a bag of kitten food and two plastic containers to put it in.
This is Patches kitty momma. I believe she is pregnant, again. She’s finishing some milk that was on the table.
When we got back from the first town run momma was gone but Patches was lying in the sun on the porch in a flower box. I was so excited to see her.
After my bff went home Patches and I came in the house then I brought in Cotterpin, my dog. It was like a tornado had gonever through the bathroom. Patches had been hiding in there when Cotterpin found her. For hours Patches hid behind the dryer. About midnight she came out of hiding. She is now hiding again, but this time she’s behind a chair in the living room. She cries and Cotterpin goes to check on her. It should mellow out soon.
I thought y’all would like a peak into my personal life and see our new addition.
I’m sure her kitty momma is staying close, after all they do live on my block (she and Patches siblings)
My last reading before surgery on June 28, 2016 and my first reading after the surgery on July 10, 2016 both had Moon Cycles involved. Also while reading one of my books on becoming a witch it talked quite a bit about moon cycles.
I love the way the moon looks and how its pull affects the actions, feelings, emotions, energies and more of the universe. For many years I was a skeptic about just how much the moon affects the universe, but not anymore.
Each phase of the moon has its own ceremony. There are some ceremonies that may cross over from one phase to another.
First off, thank you for continuing to follow my posts even though I’ve been down.
Tomorrow will be two weeks since my back surgery. I am recovering nicely. We go see the PA tomorrow and find out if the staples can come out and what restrictions are still in place.
My bff is really proud, and so am I, about the way I can get around. Because of the way things are set up I spend more time carrying the walker than actually leaning on it. Last night I tried to do some light cleaning but found it to still be a little much.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been getting stronger and spending more time sitting at the table doing research, writing and reading/editing.
In the past I was having trouble staying positive a day was just plain ready to give up but that has passed and now there’s so much to do and to look forward to.
I have started sending queries to traditional publishers in hopes of having my series picked up. The day before my surgery I received my first rejection letter. It the past it would have torn me up but now I look at it as one step closer to a yes. Having a positive outlook is an amazing tool and it’s a lot healthier too.
If you have any questions or comments about things you’d like to see more of or just something in general please feel free to post. I enjoy chatting with others and making new friends.
I want to let you all know the surgery went well. The Dr found more damage than he thought would be there. Instead of having a one inch incision I have a seven inch incision. For as big a surgery as it turned out to be in am doing well. Slowly every day is seeing improvement. I’m walking and sitting at the table. For the first time since surgery I was able to spend a few minutes sitting outside, today.
I want you all to know I wouldn’t be this far along with out the support of y’all. It’ll take about six weeks for a full recovery and my Dr is more hopeful of a full recovery than he was. Until then my posts may be sporadic but I will make an effort to keep y’all posted as well as doing some regular blogging.
Today, for the first time in a while I was able to write for a couple of hours and after this post I’ll be doing some critiquing for a a friend. It feels good to be working again.
Peace be with you.
