Witchcraft and extended work breaks.

Last week I made an announcement that I took a mini vacation from blogging. The reality of it was, I needed a longer break than I thought. I recently was offered a gig running the social media for a entertainment and party company. It is to work hand in hand with my event planning, internet personality, and blogger lifestyle. It is proven to be possible BUT still a lot of work. Because of this, I needed sort and organize my life which took a little longer than expected. I am officially back and ready to share celebration, love, and geeky greatness with you guys.

To kick off the series of blogging/internet madness that is about to unfold before your eyes, I want to share some magic with you all. I think we all should embrace our inner magic. I’ve been anointing mojo bags, burning candles, and pulling oracle cards.

We all have some form witchy magic we take part in. Whether it is meditation or having a good luck charm, there is something we do to get that extra boost of magic. We all want that extra help to make life easier and wonderful. I think my need of magic comes from my Native American roots. I love the idea of using nature and the magic within to bring abundance into my life. I’m a modern day native witch and proud.

My good friend made a Mojo bag for me recently and it’s my new favorite thing. A mojo bag is basically a prayer bag that is filled with herbs, roots, some personal items. You must feed your bag with oils, waters and sometimes even whiskey! Yes, your bag can ALSO be a lush. Your bag is alive and full of spirit and energy. Mojo bags can be one of the most powerful pieces of magic you can own. They are not to be seen by others, touched by others or wet. You are to keep this object as your personal piece of magic as a modern day witch. Sexy, right?!

Above all, I have been focused on putting more positive into the universe to receive positive back. Modern magic comes from within. Think of all of the wonderful magic you want within your life and give that to the universe. It will most definitely come back to you. We all contain the courage, guidance, and power that we need and the tools we use are an added bonus. Never be ashamed of who you are and your beliefs. Be bold, share love, and share magic. And as always…

A magical evening with Paige Zaferiou.

I’m all about creating my own magic. You know sparkly, glittery, fabulous magic. Last week on the twitter-verse, Gala mentioned that there was going to be a night of greatness in NYC. She mentioned a super new and super exciting Tarot Magic Workshop held by the fabulous Paige Zaferiou. And exciting and magical it was!

I got on a train and headed into NYC for a fun filled evening of tarot cards and new friends. Sadly, Paige and I had the same bad luck with delayed planes, trains, and automobiles but we eventually made it there to get the party started.

The workshop took place a day before a lunar eclipse and a full Moon in Sagittarius. I mean a regular full moon does something magical and sometimes weird to the world, so this super moon was perfect for a night of manifesting magic. Sadly, we never got to have tea due to delayed transportation, but we did get to go over a great deal of information.

The workshop was intimate and hand-crafted. From the worksheets to the personal experiences Paige shared. It was lovely and perfect. We learned about some of the spreads from some of the greatest such as The Tarot Lady and Paige shared some of her own rituals of magic. We all made three very specific wishes to set into motion. I can wholeheartedly say that I feel completely different and more positive since this reading/workshop.

Color me insane if you want, but I think magic is everywhere. There are always magical things and hints from our surroundings and it makes life beautiful and AWESOME! I think this workshop is perfect for people that find tarot to be a challenge, terrifying or if you’re just curious. If you put positive into the universe, the universe will have your back. We all have a little Harry Potter greatness in us. We are all here to have fun and take in the wonderful gifts around us. It is up to all of us to take care of ourselves and in turn take care of the world around us. It’s a cycle that is beautiful and generates love, and the world can ALWAYS use more love.

The workshop was held at the beautiful Atmananda Yoga Sequence.The studio seemed very big from what I can tell but the workshop was held in the kitchen/lounge area. As Paige mentioned we had a very “Hobbit-style”, and cozy gathering. The staff seemed super friendly and helpful. We definitely all got a warm welcome. I am even considering taking a class or two at the studio.

This was Paige’s first workshop (and it was free this one and only time) so the night was doubly special and dear to my heart. She did a wonderful job and definitely filled us in on some love infused knowledge. I had the honor of meeting another magical blogger, Kayla. She brought a couple of friends and we rocked it out…magic style! If you get a chance, when Paige does a world take over, definitely check out one of her workshops. You will not regret it. We can all use more love and light in our lives.

I’m happy Paige followed her heart and came to NYC. I made a new kicks ass (and magical babe) friend. She is a stunning human and I am happy to have met her. By the way, did I mention she is also a Blogcademy babe like myself?
