Light in the Dark

As I stare out at the gliding snowflakes, I am drawn into my memories of the past year and half. It wasn’t that long ago that I launched out away from Kansas City on a journey of semi self-care and part self-imposed exile. Though I had done nothing wrong, I felt as though I had…

Deliver Us from the Evil…Me?

Since the Fall, humanity has been on a journey to find its way back to the sacred Garden of Eden. The Garden is more than the shallow modern, hedonistic paradise that we have allowed ourselves to reduce it to. Rather, it is the manifest outcome of humanity in full, right-standing with The Divine!

Of Witches and Waiting

All Hallows Eve is upon us and as I sat writing up a cover letter for a job, going on and on about my skills and my thirst for learning, I realized that an area that I lack knowledge in is the area of witchcraft. Now, don’t freak out. Just because I lean Orthodox doesn’t…

Bloody Self-Acceptance

A couple of months ago, I watched a video by Sorelle Amore where she did an exercise in self-acceptance. The exercise seemed simple enough. You stand in front of a mirror naked for an allotted amount of time and simply observe your body without making any judgements or opinions about it. Just observe. After having…

Fight On

I never wanted to join the army. I always assumed that I would fail as a soldier. I believed I was both physically and emotionally incapable of serving adequately. Though this is untrue, I found myself fighting a different war anyway. It is a much older, intangible war. A war of the soul. Most importantly (to me),…

Invalidated

I remember walking through the pasta aisle one Sunday afternoon. I was planning my Italian dish of the day and narrowing down my choices when, suddenly, I was assaulted by the sound of bitter tears from a toddler in distress. I don’t know what caused the child to start crying. The cause became less and less…

Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda

Over the last six months, I have been undergoing intense transformation as life has been schooling me on a variety of lessons that I neither asked for nor wanted. Yet here I am, all the better for having been put under pressure and forced to take on the world. In this post, I desire to share…

The St. Louie Uee

“ Ya know something I learned about driving in St. Louis is that people tend to make a U-Turn wherever the hell they want!” My friend Murray and I had recently moved to St. Louis and after living here for about two years we are beginning to fit into the fast-paced culture or maybe it’s…
