What’s up witchy pals?!?

What a world we are living in right now! If you’re feeling some intense energy right now, it’s because THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF SHIT GOING ON.

What’s up witches??

You may have already heard humanity is in the midst of something called a consciousness shift, meaning many people are waking up to the knowledge that there is more to life than what we have previously been told.

You know you’re a witch when…

Did anyone else find themselves deep in feelings this weekend? I am forever committed to a positive attitude, yet I couldn’t help but notice the weight of our stark world reality creeping in. I decided to go for a (socially distanced) walk and when I returned, something magical happened! You know you’re a witch when…

…the local cats come to hang out right outside your window! First I noticed one adorable little guy chilling in my backyard. Soon after, a friend joined him! They hung out with me for quite a while as I repeatedly cooed compliments on their cuteness through my window.

As dark as the world can be, it is still full of magical moments! Keep your eyes open for small signs. Keep your eyes open for blessings, and you will find them!
