This week in Be A Goddess, the focus was primarily on (1) doing something just because it’s fun; and (2) continuing purification rites from week 3. Since I’ve been partially through the book before, the first time around, I did something a little more involved. I did the Earth Purification Rite from Week Three, but I also went ahead and created/adapted/remembered Purification Rites for the other three elements.
Well, it’s been some time since I’ve worked the Be A Goddess book. I had to take a short break because of work. Since I got that job, I had to do some training, which took a lot of my focus, and then do some hands-on work to get the feel of it all. Now that I’m on my regular shift working nights, I can pick it back up again. I haven’t really stopped saying the prayers – it’s just been on a few-times-a-week basis, rather than a daily one.

I have a job in a completely different field (Nursing is my primary, so it isn’t in Nursing) making more money than I would’ve been making as an entry-level Licensed Practical Nurse. My relationship has changed, as well, in ways I could’ve never imagined (good ways –
I can tell when Witches are working, when magic is afoot, when the power is awakened. I started my spiritual explorations when I was 13 years old. If you’ve seen any of my YouTube videos, you’ve probably heard me mention that fact. You might also know that I entered a Coven at a fairly early age. And part of my early training was what some people might today consider “New Age” – there was a lot of energy work in those early days of learning the ropes.
