V is for Voodoo - Pagan Blog Project

I remember the first time I was introduced to voodoo.


My dad always had a ton of books around and one of them was about folklore.

In this book I found a section on hoodoo, or voodoo.

I was completely fascinated.

Growing up in the bible belt, it wasn't easy to find out what the rest of the world was learning/practicing/doing.

This was way before internet, way before I knew about other religions and spiritual natures.

This book even had spells! I had to try it out.

All I remember is - it involved an onion and breaking up a couple.

Which now I think back - isn't very nice!

I was in high school and ready to experiment. 
Totally NOT thinking about "do no harm" rules and all that.

I did the spell over the weekend. On Monday, the couple broke up. Coincidence? I don't know. 
Couples are always breaking up in high school. 

I tried out a couple more spells in the book - 
they both came to fruition.

Pretty amazing!

By Louis Martinie and Sallie Ann Glassman
Life happened, I stopped dabbling, and didn't think about voodoo until I was in New Orleans in 2000. Again, I was completely fascinated. I love the story of Marie Laveau. I love the candles, the charms, the love for ancestors, and the mystery.

I was gifted 
The New Orleans 
Voodoo Tarot cards. 
I still get them out from time to time. 

I still love voodoo lore and magic.

Let's get out the cards and see what they have to tell us today.

La Sirene ~ Congo ~Water
La Sirene is the mermaid. 

She is the great bridge between the 
depths of the seas and the dry land.
She is a loa responsible for the sacred songs 
of the Voodoo ceremony.
These songs combine spoken word and music bringing fascination and strong focus. 

Blue is her color.

Her power is empathy.

She is all about the emotional connection.

Beautiful card. I love her.
Do you consider yourself empathic?
I know I'm an empath.
It isn't always easy, but there is something special 
when you connect with others on a deep emotional level.
Your heart expands and 
it's a beautiful thing.

Tapping Tuesday - My Business is Prosperous

Welcome to I'd That That - Tapping Tuesday!

Today we are going to tap along with an
affirmation from Louise Hay's book
Inner Wisdom: Meditations for the Heart & Soul

Follow along with the video and let's watch our businesses grow!

My business is prosperous.
Inner Wisdom:Meditations for the Heart & Soul by Louise Hay

I am divinely guided, so my business prospers, 
expands, and grows.

I now choose to release any 
negative thoughts about cash-flow limitations.

I open my consciousness to a quantum leap of prosperity 
by thinking and accepting that 
large amounts of money flood to my bank account.

I have plenty to use, to spare, and to share.

The law of prosperity keeps 
the flow of cash moving in abundant amounts.

It pays my bills and brings me everything I need and more.

I now choose to be a living example of 
prosperity consciousness.

I live and work in comfort and ease and beauty.

I have inner peace and security.

I watch with joy and gratitude as 
my business continually grows and 
prospers far beyond my expectations.

I bless my business with love.

This week's tweetable -
I watch with joy and gratitude as 
my business continually grows and prospers.

U is for Uzume - Pagan Blog Project

Uzume
From The Goddess Oracle by Amy Sophia Marashinsky
Illustrated by Hrana Janto

~Laughter~

Before the Rock Cave of Heaven
where Amaterasu Omi Kami, the Sun Goddess
had hidden her radiant face
where all the assembled Gods and Goddesses had tried
and failed
to lure her out
I stepped up to the Cave
with utmost seriousness
with grave determination
with proper decorum and a lofty mien
and with a bump and a bump and a bump bump bump bump
lifted my kimono and revealed myself in ways
that caused the mouths of the exalted ones
to water and fall open
Then I played puppet with my labia
and paid myself a little lip service
I heaved my breast over one shoulder
then the other over the other
and landed on my ass
with a bump and a bump and a bump bump bump bump
amidst the explosions of laughter and merriment
of the esteemed crowd
With breasts tied in a knot
my legs spread like a welcome mat
I called in the Spirits
and offered them my body...
but they refused to take it
The crowd howled and laughed as I continued my dance
till Amaterasu Omi Kami couldn't stand it any longer
and rushed out to see what was what
And thus did laughter
win the Sun Goddess from her dark cave
and bring light and warmth back into the world
*************
Uzume is my kind of woman!
Bawdy dancing and letting it all hang out.

YES!

Uzume dances her free and fun self into our lives 
reminding us to
LAUGH.

Yes, laugh.
Laughter really is the best medicine.

Laughter helps us through difficult times.
It relaxes us. It makes us smile.
It increases our endorphins.
We feel better when we laugh.

No matter what you are going through, find the humor in it.
Laugh and see the humor in all of life's challenges.
