I was speaking with my partner, Toby, yesterday and he gave me a very interesting insight. I usually get very emotional about other people's problems, world problems that I just cannot help. I get frustrated and disgusted with how other human beings can treat one another, the environment and animals - I cannot understand how someone can be capable of such things, even down to simple spitefulness.
I get very worked up about these things. Then Toby made me realise that I have been given many blessings in this life time so far, God/dess has given me so much to be greatful for and it seems as if he/she has designed my life to give me the gifts to live a happy life. So why then am I spending so much time being upset about world issues? Surely this goes against what Divinity was trying to do for me?
He also said that the God and Goddess must look upon their world unable to help such issues and so if they can't help, how can I? -- This is not to say that I can't get involved in activism and try my best, but it is just suggesting that I should not allow it to overrun my life.

I have had blogs in the past by now I am entering a whole new stage in my spirituality and I really want to start afresh.
To introduce myself: I am an Eclectic Pagan Witch, following a path centered on the God and Goddess in nature. My named Matron Goddess is Nut and my Patron God is Osiris, although often I just refer to them as God and Goddess. I have a very Eclectic path and am constantly developing. My path embraces all world religions and spiritualities, including Abrahamic religion.
I celebrate the Wheel of the year and moon phases, aim to heal and help others, and make a difference in this world.
With regards to things outside of my spirituality, I am studying Egyptology at University and am a Belly Dancer and writer as my hobby. I am a typical Capricorn and so can come across as very serious, bossy and focused. I am all of those things but I am also full of life, positive, hyperactive and I think my jokes are hilarious (I am also half Sagittarius!).
To introduce this blog: As I said before, I feel that I have come a long way since the beginning of my path 4 and a half years ago. 4 years isn't that long to have studied Paganism, but my dedication and love for it has sped up my learning and so I now here I am. This blog will be a fresh start to my journey, and I hope I stick to it in recording my experiences. This blog is as much as it is for me as it is for you. This is a place where I hope I can record my learning, read back on it and also share it with others in the hope that it will also benefit them. That's also what my Youtube Channel is for. I record all the videos I do to reflect on my journey - and boy, do I see a difference looking back!
I hope you enjoy following this blog, and I hope it is beneficial to all who come by it!
