Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

OctPoWriMo Day 8

 I'm going to attempt to write a poem on my phone since using the keyboard for my tablet takes too much brain power for my creativity to wake up.

When the world leaves you breathless.
One must ask, "Am I doing this right?"
No one gives you a handbook on doing life.
Do's and don'ts people have plenty to say.
Eventually though you have to figure it out.
For otherwise we are stumbling and fumbling in the dark.
Unnecessary steps taken that lead nowhere.
Life feels harder than it has to be.
Little cuts tearing open.
Yes or no, does it even matter?

Shadows swallowing you whole
Trolls coming out from the between places
Random acts of horror next to kindness
Allowing the chaos to grow
No wonder people are flailing about.
Got to wonder if the merry go round will stop.
Eventually it must, it must, it must...

This was difficult on my phone, too. Hopefully I'll be able to get another laptop soon. How are your words flowing on this OctPoWriMo journey?

OctPoWriMo Day 1

 I didn't participate last year because I was having such a tough time. This year I feel like a completely different person, lighter, freer and more myself. I'm really looking forward to writing poetry with the other participants of OctPoWriMo

The prompt for day one is, Shine Your Light and the poetry type is, free write. I decided to free write and see what falls to the page.

I dance upon the carpet, 

moving my hips,

shaking things up as I invite my muse to join me. 

My heart is more open than it has ever been, 


the shadows are welcome too as 

without them I'd not be able to see the light. 

My light leaks out of my 

broken places, 

reminding me of where I've been, 

of what I've endured, 

but that I don't have to stay there, 

in the dark because to grow 

I need the light. 

I need the now. 

Smiling into the sun, 

I'm open to where the light leads me 

on this journey of words 

and I'm letting more light in.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll share your word love below.

Crystals and Chakras

Since I am now treating this like a business, I'm working on posting more regularly and that means almost daily on my Patreon and those posts that are going live a week later I'm sharing here.

I've decided to combine Crystal 52 with the Chakra work (Crystals and Chakras) I've been doing. I'm still using the same list of crystals in the meme below.

Not sure how this is going to look as I'm figuring it out as I go along. This weekly post will focus on one crystal per week and how it affects the different chakras and any other chakra work that I do that week.
One of the things I should mention, in case I haven't before, I work the chakras by day.
Monday - Root
Tuesday - Sacral 
Wednesday - Solar Plexis
Thursday - Heart
Friday - Throat
Saturday - Third Eye
Sunday - Crown
I may work other Chakras as time goes by, but for now this is it.
When I decided to get back to writing about what I'm doing it was Saturday - Third Eye. I can't think about the Third Eye without it activating and it feeling pretty intense. It feels tight and kind of throbs. None of my other chakras respond like that when I think of them. Not sure if it is a feeling of it opening or of a block that I need to clear. 
My first thought is to remember my word for the year is, Vision, to see more clearly what I need to see to heal and move forward in my life.  I must admit my dreams on early Saturday morning were quite vivid and intimate. So much so that when I woke up, I felt the loss of the people I was close to in the dream. I can't help but wonder if it was my third eye opening and seeing possibilities. I will have to ponder and meditate on this further.
Amethyst is the Crystal for the week. It is one of my favorite stones and I use it quite regularly. I always have one in my car for protection, in my home, and sometimes I wear one on a necklace. The Amethyst corresponds to the Crown Chakra which is Sunday, which is today.  I am visualizing the Amethyst floating within my Crown Chakra at the top of my head. I can feel it coming alive, opening up and it makes me smile. Crown chakra work always makes me feel connected to the oneness of life, how we are all connected to each other and to everything around us. I plan on going to sleep while envisioning the Amethyst hovering within my crown. I will come back in the morning and add anything I see in my dreams that may be related. 
* That was interesting. I did dream vividly, but it wasn't a pleasant dream, more like a nightmare. I will be going into further details around that within the, Uncensored Me post later in the week. 
I will continue to work with the Amethyst within my crown and see what else comes up this week. I will add any further observations in next weeks, Crystals and Chakras post.
Next Sunday I will be infusing water with an amethyst, then drinking it and noting any differences I feel. 
I hope you will come along on this journey into Crystals and Chakras with me. I'd love to hear about your experiences with them each week.
Have some witchy fun this week exploring Amethyst and your Chakras.

Much love,

Poetry and Prompts 1

Wednesday is the day for Poetry and Prompts. I've had trouble writing poetry with any regularity since 2014 when a woman decided it was her mission to convince me what I write isn't poetry. I allowed it to damage my self confidence in my poetry.

Now I am pushing myself to write poetry again, at least once per week, and share a prompt for you to join me on this journey.
Today I pulled cards from Sacred Rebels Oracle and the over all feeling I get from them is to trust in the process.
37. Focus on the Light
41. Bring it into Form
6. Shock of the New 
I felt like it was telling me to focus on the light to be able to shift my energy. Bring it into Form I think is about my creativity, writing and art and making space and time for me to create, hence, bringing it into form. And the Shock of the New, I believe if I stay the course, change my energy by focusing on the light and keep creating, everything will change for the better which might be a little difficult at first but I will adjust. 
The things I think keep holding me back, my subconscious thoughts about money. My lack of self love, my self sabotage, how I have begun to expect the worst. How I keep pushing people away because I’m afraid of getting hurt or because deep down I don’t really think anyone could love me, not the real me.

Love inside
So hard to find
When doubt clouds the mind
Small opening to let light in
Love kicks away doubt
from inward out 
Loving light

I choose to focus on the light, to continue to create art and write, and embrace the new life I create for myself.


How can you encourage your self-love to grow? Are you allowing self doubt to cloud your mind? You can also use the words from the cards I pulled above.

When I decide to choose a form, poetry type, I just begin playing with words until something starts to click, either free form or I create some kind of pattern like the one above. Other times I go to Shadow Poetry and search through to find something that feels right for what I'm writing. During OctPoWriMo I encourage trying new forms so you can discover what types you like to play with, but during the year I highly encourage you to play with your words, arrange them, move them, rhyme them or not until you find something that works, or use your favorite forms you discovered during the challenge.

If you write a poem from the prompt, feel free to come back and share your link in the comments below.

Peace to you,
Morgan Dragonwillow
