….it’s also equally important that we have tools to deal with these pains so that we don’t hurt other people on OUR sharp edges. Through this post, I hope to give you some tools and access to a new perspective.
Pain and heartache suck, and I’ll make no bones about it. We don’t like going through difficult things in our lives, and sometimes life can be really damn unkind. When it feels like life’s goddamn unfair and we’re getting battered at every turn, it can feel like there’s no way to win, and that feeling of situation-enforced helplessness is AWFUL. It’s a saddening, sinking feeling & I don’t love it.
BUT, we are blessed to have magick at our fingertips. As witches and witchy folk, we’ve got the opportunity to use these difficult situations as a catalyst for change. As witches, we’ve got the ability to find a way to win, and it all starts with being able to redefine winning by intentionally getting the marrow out of every bone placed before us.
Every obstacle is a lesson, every lesson is a gift. They may not fucking feel like it in the moment, but when you’ve made the situational and behavioral changes the lesson’s meant to articulate, you win. When you make those changes and reorient yourself towards the success you wish to be having, you become more successful and more capable. Every hurdle you surmount and every challenge you overcome makes you stronger and more capable; let those wins make you more confident & the next time you encounter an obstacle like the one that hurt you before, remind yourself that you’ve already been here before and that those lessons from the past are now helping you architect yourself and your future.
Sure, you can get mired down and stuck - sometimes that happens - point being, though, is that it doesn’t NEED to happen. If you’re stuck in that mental space, reach out; I won’t process your trauma for you, but I can facilitate you doing so more easily by working with angels, demons, and all kinds of spirits in-between.
