CANDLE MAGIC: INVOKING THE POWER OF FIRE
The spark begins
Can you remember the intense energy you put into making your wish as you blew out your birthday candles when you were a child? That moment may have been your first practice of candle magic. Have you ever wondered where this tradition comes from – why you wish upon candles? It is rooted in the simplest form of magical ritual – candle magic – which has been practiced for centuries. The difference is, now, as an informed spiritual being and magical practitioner, you declare your intention instead of just ‘making a wish’ which sends a much more powerful energy to Source. Wishes are intentions with training wheels. Candle magic is “sympathetic magic,” as it takes nothing more than your chosen candle, a flame, and the power of your intention to invoke its power.( Read more...Collapse )

"If I’ve learned anything from life, it’s that sometimes, the darkest times can bring us to the brightest places. I’ve learned that the most toxic people can teach us the most important lessons; that our most painful struggles can grant us the most necessary growth; and that the most heartbreaking losses of friendship and love can make room for the most wonderful people. I’ve learned that what seems like a curse in the moment can actually be a blessing, and that what seems like the end of the road is actually just the discovery that we are meant to travel down a different path. I’ve learned that no matter how difficult things seem, there is always hope. And I’ve learned that no matter how powerless we feel or how horrible things seem, we can’t give up. We have to keep going. Even when it’s scary, even when all of our strength seems gone, we have to keep picking ourselves back up and moving forward, because whatever we’re battling in the moment, it will pass, and we will make it through. We’ve made it this far. We can make it through whatever comes next."

Bo and I met through a mutual friend right before I moved to Arizona. We were on the Pimp list together and chatted on-line for a little bit. Then I moved back to Florida and he had left his wife. Our mutual friend told him that I would be the perfect match for him.
One night at RSC he came up to me and said "I'm really bad at this but would you like to go out on a date with me?" We went to see the Movie The Good Girl and then we went to the Boynton Beach Inlet to chill on the beach and stare at the moon.
Due to some miscommunication and some manipulation by people I thought were my friends, Bo and I went our separate ways and he got back together with his wife. We stayed in touch very loosely for years. He helped me get out of an abusive marriage where the guy I was married to was mentally and emotionally abusive. (he wasn't physically abusive though) We became super close at that point in time.
He went to New Orleans for about 6 weeks and I flew out there to pick him up. We spent a few days in NOLA! Came back to Florida and things got convoluted (he can tell his story if he wants to. I don't want to tell his side.) Then one day, out of the blue, he called me up and invited me over to watch the movie Bolt with him and have pancakes. We never finished the movie. At point he asked me "Are we done?" I said no. He said he wanted a committed relationship with me. I asked him if we could have kids. He said yes and we have been together ever since.
And I still haven't seen the ending to the movie Bolt !!!
