my little storm

I love thunderstorms, even ones given to me via magick from certain people; though it’s not wise to play with the storms, especially as a witch can harness powers from them and blow it back Miss Scarlet, said; the Golden Witch one day.

12 – Thunderstorms

12 – Thunderstorms

Thunderstorms, although sometimes tragic are also very beautiful in my opinion; they are dark and they make wonderful patterns and colors in the sky as they’re forming.  The smell of the thunderstorm is wonderful, like the sea, you can taste the saltiness in the air and how quiet and still everything becomes in anticipation of its coming.  Such respect founded by all life in nature, like the suspense of a royal visit.

I love watching the show from my window, the lightning, the rain, sometimes the wind and how quickly the clouds rush in the sky; very much like a royal pass by, where it’s full speed ahead for the King or Queen of nature, make way, make way, with such deafening trumpeting processions following with it.

Then, everything goes back to normal quite quickly once the show is over; his excellency has passed, everything back to normal, nothing more to see here and as a gift for being so good, all the colors of our plants and vegetation becomes brighter and happier looking, like excited gossips within crowds.

If has been a particularly hot day before the storm came, you’d be thankful for the break in humidity after the visit too, I love to run around in thunderstorms, it gives me some kind of energy, probably from the electrical charges in the lightning – some people, particularly spirits and witches are very electric by nature, so will feel at one with the storm and regenerated after it.

11 – Night

11 – Night

Night time is perfect for me; it gives me energy, as night progresses the more awake I become, it seems strange that the more daylight I am around the less energy I have.

Night is beautiful and has been given a bad reputation over the centuries.  Why people fear the dark I have no idea, but I love it.

I like the bluey hues you get most nights amongst what I call dark light.  I like the peace of the night, I like the respect people give it, I like the quiet and I especially love the almost abandoned streets, the feeling of a ghost world a world without an influx of humanity.

If you want to socialize at night time it also seems easier than during the day.  People become quieter and more respectful to one and other and yet there really isn’t any difference to the day.

Unlike most people I don’t find the concept of sitting in the garden in the dark and listening to birds still singing around me as eerie; I like it, it’s soothing.

I get so fueled with dread whenever I see the sun rising again, because I know as soon as it pops up my energy will get drained and I will feel crap again.

10 – Meadows

10 – Meadows

Meadows are wonderful, I like helping to create meadows by throwing around meadow flower seeds on empty grassy fields, whether the council likes it or not.  It helps the bees, bees help me and I like honey, so why not?

I dislike the notion that humanity believes they own everything without regard for other types of creatures around them, fine build your houses, build your cities and skyscrapers, but work around the nature that surrounds you.

I lose all known respect for humanity every time they destroy greenery or erect a new building that’s not environmentally friendly to those outside of humanity.

Meadows are beautiful; they shouldn’t become extinct like they seem to be in the UK these days.

Preserve them, don’t become like another human being who lacks regard for birds, insects and other creatures; keep them in your mind at all times, you want a home?  You want a city?  Then build one that will include, not exclude other creatures like foxes, squirrels, rats, birds and bees.

Prophecy or not all see?

I had a dream last night that I was visiting my grandma and my cousin Anthony was living with her too; I was moving in with them, so it seemed.  I was unpacking large boxes and having a lot of fun with them both.

The entire dream was very pleasant and I enjoyed it very much, but when I woke up in the morning and remembered the dream I became worried.

My grandmother died in October 2012 and my cousin aged only 17 died of a heart defect in December 2010.

I told Paul, my husband about this dream and we’re both worried that it might be a prophecy of some sort, particularly as I’ve become progressively sick with an unknown illness that’s knocking me for six; the doctors can’t pin point what it might be, my immune system isn’t coping with anything I come near, I’ve been ill with various colds, flu, viruses, infections almost constantly since December.  I have almost permanent swellings in all my glands and always tired. Still the doctor can find nothing wrong.

9 – weeping willow

9 – Weeping willow

I love sitting underneath a weeping willow on a bench in summer, though sometimes it can get messy, but it’s always lovely, especially when they’re in their prime location (beside a river or some other embodiment of water), ducks, geese and swans always like to creep up the bank and shelter under them with you, particularly if it looks like you’ve got snacks for them.

To me the willow doesn’t seem sad, it shouldn’t be called “weeping” willow, it should be called the sheltering willow or something similar.

Aspirin is made from its bark which makes this tree all the more important.

8 – dandelions

8 – Dandelions

Contrary to the fact that 99% of people think that dandelions are weeds, to me they are beautiful for many reasons; they are edible, their roots are a substitute for coffee, you can eat their leaves in a beautiful tasting salad, their flower heads are sweet and their seed heads are fun to play with and watch in the summer breeze.

They are lovely in drinks too, tea, or cold drinks such as dandelion and burdock which is always a British favorite.

They have many health benefits such as; being high in vitamin A, C, calcium and iron.  Dandelions help repair liver disorders strengthen bones, help diabetes patients produce insulin and the sap can be used to treat ringworm, sores, bites and eczema.  There has been some medical speculation that it may contain an ingredient that helps combat cancer and assist in liver regrowth.

I adore dandelions and I even deliberately grow them; dig them out of your garden and put them elsewhere when they crop up, do not kill them, they have so many benefits to them, they really should be upgraded to herb status again, like they used to be in ancient times.

Many once known herbs have been downgraded because the use of herbs was seen as witchcraft and even early doctors and physicians were regarded with suspicion by the church, so let’s upgrade these wonderful and tasty herbs now that paganism is becoming more widely accepted.
