As you might have seen, I kinda flew off the band wagon by not posting any sort of blog updates for most of 2016 (since May! Oops!). As I have seen across the board, 2016 was a challenging year for many individuals, especially in the pagan community, myself included. Still, I am here to share a little bit of a life update and what I plan on doing with this blog as well as my sacred business.
First things, first. Happy New Year! I was so ready to get rid of 2016 and to just forget what happened to me when the holiday came around. I wished the year away for the troubles I had with work, my health, my relationships, basically everything. And yet, I can learn from my errors in 2016 and apply them for my future. Most issues have been resolved, as they should be given that it was a 9 year (numerology for those who have no idea what I am referring to) and my sense of dread is shaping into one of positivism.
Overall, I believe I kept my relationships, for the most part, in tact and have been able to balance my social and work life. I've followed one of my soul callings and have began volunteering my graphic design skills for a local animal shelter, which I am extremely proud of and excited for. I've kept up my studies and am maintaining a 3.7 GPA. However, I have slacked off magickally and am ready to focus on this aspect of my life this year.
As for my crystal business, I am currently working on a new product and am getting the final touches on it to see if it's something I'd be willing to share with you all. I am SO excited for this project but I can't tell you anything about it yet.
These are my goals for 2017:
- Write More (specifically my blog. I do write some fan fiction books on the side but I would like to write a chapter each week as opposed to once or twice a month)
- Exercise and Eat Better (this seems to be a yearly thing with me, here's to hoping it will stick this year)
- Move Into My Own House (which this might be manifesting in the works! Stay tuned)
- Graduate College (this will happen at the end of February!)
- Own My Power (more on this at a later post)
Here's a bit of what I am into for January:
Moonology: Working with the Magic of Lunar Cycles by Yasmin Boland
Magickal Attack: Silence, Bind and Crush Your Enemies With The Art of Occult Warfare by Gordon Winterfield
Tarot of the New Vision by Lo Scarabeo
As always, thanks for reading my update! Here's to an AMAZING 2017!
