Truths appear in drips, streams, flows and pours. Drinking from the fountains of truth holds pleasures and benefits galore. Yep, truths poured in and truths poured out -- to constructively share. Truths sure can favorably do our lives well.

Initially, truths don’t always please our thirsty appetites. Often, though, when we allow them to rest in soak formation, to marinate and then to sink in thoroughly, our thirsts are satisfyingly quenched. Acceptance of truths adds to successful accomplishments of our action plans -- with relish.

Certainly, digesting truth proves good for our systems.

Magickal Self Healing

Hi -

In a group, here's the first sentence of what I posted there:

Don't be discouraged when you don't always get quick results from your spells.


I'm struck profoundly by responses made by Camille E. Reed (used by permission):

She expressed:

"Essentially, witches are and have learned to manipulate nature and spirit to forge an intent/power. If we aren't using our skills to address our own weaknesses, we are vulnerable to being manipulated, controlled and abused.

"I just see a lot of power fascination without awareness of healing. A woman in love with herself and healing, is a force of power in the universe.

"Sandy Thaxton-Hicks, you can post my name with it, it's all good. Truth is truth. If someone out there in the ether doesn't like it, then may a heart opening healing be attached to it.
"It molly-whopped me when I learned it. 😂!"


Here's the whole of my post that garnered the subject responses from Camille:

Hi -

To Whom It Concerns:

Don't be discouraged when you don't always get quick results from your spells.

Sometimes there are processes involved where you need to self transform. Yes, sometimes YOUR viewpoints need to change. Times when YOUR ego and emotions need to be put in check. YOUR priorities need to be reevaluated.

Yep, there are instances when the universal rhythm will deem it more needful for you to learn valuable lessons . . . Thus, you need to wait -- or even have your desires overruled for the best interests . . .

One main question is -- how will you handle what unfolds -- in the processes?

Gratitude is magickal, too . . .

- A witch’s power lies in being unafraid of the unknown

- A concentration on fear attracts things to be scared of

Here's the link to the entire article:
