As you all know, my life is a series of spiritual experiences and for this, I am very grateful. The moth that is depicted on this post visited me recently and the untouched picture on its wings reminded me of who I am….a queen…
The Woman in the Candle Shop (True Story)
Yesterday I had the awesome opportunity of visiting one of my favorite candle shops to pick up trinkets and supplies. When I arrived at the shop, there was a sign on the door that said the shop was closed for a few hours. I was sorely disappointed as I had driven quite a ways and to my wondering eyes, a woman appeared to unlock the door. I mentioned to her that I thought the shop was closed and she said, “Not for you.”
A young black woman came in right after me and was staring at me as the mystic behind the counter dressed my candles and we raved about Oschun. I did not pay the young lady any attention because people are always looking at me like there is something odd about your sistar!
The mystic behind the counter stopped talking to me and turned to the woman and asked her why she was crying. I had not even noticed because I was so engrossed in my conversation. The young woman then turned to me and said, “I want ‘you’ to help me.”
I looked at her and probably looked a bit confused since there was a very capable woman who was working behind the counter and who had even taught me some stuff. The young lady began to tell us about a problem that she was having leaving someone that she realized she needed to let go of. The gist of my message to her was, “Baby, you don’t need magick. You just gotta love yourself.”
Some years ago, I wrote the book Broken Heart, which you can find on this page in the right sidebar. The book started out as a journal that I wrote in during times where I could hardly breathe from the pain — somehow the writing soothed the discomfort of my heart. I had gone through an awful betrayal with someone who knew better, but who was not empowered to do better. In order to save my soul, I began writing, until a blog turned into a book recording the first few months after a devastating heartbreak and how I survived it. I make no apologies about what I wrote in the book because it was what it was.
The Actual Message from the Universe
Today I was thinking about the experience and I realized that the young lady was not just speaking for herself, she was the voice of all of the young women who had made the wrong choices in a mate and who, because of their intense love, was finding it hard to let go of a futile situation.
I write in the book about one particular situation where I literally felt I would die from the pain, however instantaneously a swift wind came into my basement room and removed the intensity of it and I have never since felt that type of pain again. Perhaps the entity that visited me that night left me a little medicine for you too, which I have done my best to infuse into the book and a song.
I felt like singing today and what came out was what I consider to be the theme song to the book Broken Heart. You may download this song, free for a limited time, if it encourages you……please note you will be asked to join my mailing list to receive the download, but I promise to always encourage you and I do not send emails often, perhaps monthly. If you do not want to join the list, you can still listen to the music.
