Boy, was I right.
So, I've been reading. Since I made the decision to turn back to Druidry to find my footing again in my Spiritual Walk, I've been looking for the best place to start. I picked up Bonnewits's Essential Guide to Druidism. I figured, him being one of the most well known & well respected names in modern Druidry, it was as good a place to start as any.
Boy, was I right.
So, I've been pondering the idea of doing a re-dedication. I've been floundering for a while, trying to find my Path again. Trying to reconnect. Trying to get back to my Place of Belonging & feel my Power again. I've had moments, some longer than others, where I did feel that. But I always end up searching again.
I have a friend who has asked me to guide her through an Element Walk. Since she lives in Florida, we're doing this via email & Facebook messages. She's the third person, other than myself, that I've guided through an Element Walk & I keep thinking I'd like to have a central location to record my thoughts & notes on the Elements as I go through it each time. Because I am essentially going through the Walk again myself every time too. So, I'm going to start entering those notes here. :)
Let me preface this by saying that we do not like going to traditional doctors. We have huge issues with Western medicine & don't trust it's practitioners. However, if we can't fix something ourselves, we WILL go. The biggest stumbling block for us in that regard right now is the lack of health insurance & an equally lacking bank account.
This is a quandry I've had for a bit. When I go to the table for a Working, I have a need. It's usually a pretty big need that I need some (fairly) immediate results on. As a result, I tend to want to throw fucking everything but the kitchen sink at it.
