Today was much lighter at the Salem job than expected because of the weather, which is cold and rainy and very winter-like. Bleh. Wanted to hibernate all day. Had lots of fun however.
Downside to being a medium: getting messages from your grandmother that she’d really prefer you to be a nice Jewish girl instead of all of that Greek god pagan stuff.
I don’t think there is any way I can qualify for unemployment at this point because I’ve been making entirely too much at the Salem job. I didn’t think I’d either have those extra hours nor that I’d be so successful. I owe Apollo AND Hermes some major thanks.
Another day in Salem, Halloween was a bit less crazier than I had expected. I fully expect that the real crazy will come tomorrow. Whee!
Very, very long day today. I also don’t know how I can go back to my regular job after this, I really don’t. There is such a massive difference between the skills I use in this one vs the ones I use in IT.
I’ve realized that my days and nights are filled with doing divination, magic, seership, mediumship past few weeks. If this isn’t alchemical I don’t know what the fuck is. I’ve been getting my taste of full time magician, witch, and priestess and I’m finding that it comes entirely too natural to me. I feel at home.
Morning rite went well, managed to get noon prayer rite in.
Clearly I have found my niche–not that I didn’t already have a sense of it anyhow. Got a LOT of compliments today on my readings: I have a real gift, I’m a headliner, etc. Doing my best not to let it go to my head but happy to hear that I’m helping so many people doing something I enjoy.
I’ve also been offered the opportunity to act as a regular backup psychic on weekends. Definitely going to do it. Could help a lot towards transitioning out of IT.
So many people seem surprised at how long I’ve been at this rite now. Honestly…end date is up to the gods. I figure receiving my almond wand will be a signal as to about when I need to make the final preparations for the last part of this operation.
Another day in Salem. Went well although nowhere near as busy as yesterday. Yesterday was nuts.
Very, very aware of how much that needs to get done this week. Glad I have some time set aside to relax, go out to eat, get a massage, etc. I need the downtime. Also, need some kitty cuddle time.
I’m spending so much time in altered states that being in the rest of world is starting to get weird.
Once again finding myself in a position of having to stick to my ethical principles even if it means bowing out of a group. A shame but so it goes. I keep finding more and more issues with the Hellenic polytheist community; there are a number of good people in it but too many assuming roles of leadership who really have no business doing so. More and more I am realizing I will need to strike it out on my own, maintain friendships but ultimately do my own thing. I don’t know if I reacted the right way about it online; I got a bit fired up about it. But it’s an issue which has come up before and has shades of the whole “x deity told/commanded me to tell you all xyz” which I find incredibly distasteful.
I also got to finally communicate how I feel about a difficult issue with someone, which makes me incredibly relieved.
Evcening rite went well. I need to spend more time in meditation and offline in general.
