A Witch's Path. . .

a path worth taking. . .

4-4 against our children. . .

As I sit here and listen to the President speak about our fight as Latinos, to keep our families together, all I can think about is my neighbors, my friends and my family who all know, and some are, illegal immigrants trying to make a better life for themselves and their children. I am 4th generation Mexican American. My family is international. I have relatives from El Salvador, Columbia, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Brazil; whether they are married in, or adopted in, they are my family!

I think about all the children in my life and what it would be like for them to lose their mom or dad to deportation and tears spring to my eyes because  it devastates me! Now think about the 4 million immigrants who are here to get away from hunger, poverty, violence and their governments. Let’s say that they each have 1 child. . . Now let’s imagine that all 4 million get deported. . . . that means 4 million children. . . 4 MILLION INNOCENT CHILDREN. . . will be put into foster care, or group homes, or with family . . . but none of those people, will ever be mom or dad.

These children will probably have to change schools, they will adjust. They will probably have to make new friends, they will flourish. They will probably be bullied for not having parents, they will overcome. . . . Or they won’t, they may fall through the cracks and become delinquents. They may grow up to be drug addicts or worse. These are our children. These are our INNOCENT children.

Every single one of those children will fall under the responsibility of the United States Government. Can you imagine what anywhere from 2-4 million children entering the system would do to the system? What it would do to our economy?… What it would to to the children?

These are all what if scenarios, right? These are potential outcomes to deporting over 4 million people. Separating 4 million families. Are you one of those families? Do you know one of those families? Don’t take these suppositions lightly. Take voice, Speak up. Don’t let 4-4 against our children be the end of this war. We must carry on and continue fighting.

Don’t close the door. . .

The silence is so deafening, the tears don’t want to stop. There is so much left unsaid, so many memories yet to be made. Now, I’m the only one left to share this memory. . .

One sunny, and hot Texas afternoon, I was little more than 6 years old, a beautiful woman knocked on the door. I wobbled over and opened it. A beautiful voice to match, she said something along the lines of “Is Francis home?” I closed the door. She was a stranger after all.

That was the first time I met my tia Glenda. I was the first person in her biological family that she had the pleasure of meeting. Knowing that we never got the chance to share more of our lives together makes my heart ache in a way that I’m not sure I’ve ever felt before.

Today, I would like to ask for prayers for my cousins. May their lives be filled with love and light so that there may be some semblance of filling for the hole that has been ripped into their lives. May they have the strength and courage to get through every wave that is yet to come, because there will be many. Let every holiday, birthday or anniversary to come,  be filled with wonderful memories of the woman who was their world.

I would also like to send a thought into the universe: Love, because it heals all things, forgives all things and creates all things. May love fill the hearts of every soul, even if for a moment. When that wave of love I send knocks on your door like a beautiful angel asking to come in. . . . Don’t close the door. . .

… no words….

What do you do when there are no words to describe the way you feel? When the emptiness inside is too much to bear? When you realize that the grass isn’t always greener? When money didn’t buy happiness? When peace doesn’t come with peace of mind? When Standing up for what you believe is no longer safe? When the world you knew has become a hell you are unfamiliar with?

What do you do? 

I’m Angry; God is Dead !

​I just can’t stop being angry. Nothing anyone can say can change it. Just leave me be. It’s not you, it’s me… better yet,  it is you, all of you who remain silent to the atrocities happening in the world. So don’t tell me that I have so much to me thankful for, that I am lucky, that I don’t need for anything, I know that. I’m not angry with my life, I’m angry with life in general. Why does my friends grandbaby have to be in pain, why the fuck does Donald Trump have to ruin our country, why can’t we all go back to the way things were. When playing outside was good for kids, when cooking at home was mandatory and eating out was a luxury, when Good music made sense, and 14 year olds didn’t have cell phones. When people came together in times of crisis not divided into irrational sects. When the word God had value, had weight. Now it’s used as a means to an end. This world, this life, is crumbling before our very eyes and I feel helpless. Everyone has  that “Im just one person,  I can’t save the world”, attitude . YOU ARE  WRONG! We can save this world, one day at a time one person at a time. STOP BEING LAZY! GET UP and fight for what is right! Stop pretending everything is OK! 

Friedrich Nietzsche rightly said “God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?”

Dear Family,

This has been a hard year for me. I’ve been through so many emotional changes. I feel like it flew by because I was so busy putting out fires in my head and in my heart. I’ve fallen so many times in my life, I never found it as hard as I did this year to get back up. I’ve made all the wrong choices for all the wrong reasons. There is one thing that has forced me to keep getting up, to keep wiping away my tears and dusting off my ass: Family. My Dad, my sisters, my brothers, my nieces, my nephews, my cousins, mom. You all have kept me going.

This holiday season, as everyone goes out shopping and has all these special requests for specific gifts and such, all I want is for my family to know that I’m sorry for not being around, for not calling, for not reaching out. I just felt like I need to battle this out on my own. I want you all to know that all of you, are my reason for not giving up. Y’all are all I ever wanted all those years I was off drifting alone, doing who knows what with who knows who. Now, I have what I wanted: Family.

Now, I’m finding it hard to be a good daughter, a good sister, a good aunt, a good niece, a good friend even a good witch. I feel like if I get to close I’m, going to burn it all to hell. LOL So, I keep pulling away. I keep “keeping my distance”. So, I’m writing this because I give up, I need your help. I need help being a good everything. If I don’t call, call me. If I don’t text, text me. If You haven’t heard from me, reach out. Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning and your text, phone call or sticker might be the one thing I needed today.

As I write everyone’s Holiday cards, I think carefully about what each one says, reminding all of you how much you mean to me. Please know I’m trying, I’m fighting and I’m keeping on, for all of you, because I know you are rooting for me. . . and I’m not one to “leave the stage in the middle of a song” . . .

Merry Christmas, Merry Yule, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Diwali, Ramadan Mubarak, Happy Kwanzaa, and a Joyous Winter Solstice to everyone the world over.

“It is often in the darkest skies that we see the brightest stars.” – Richard Evans

Contrast. This is what this world is based upon.

Good and evil, dark and light, suffering and happiness.

It’s the only way to find a balance, the only way to equally experience everything.

Guardians come forth . . .

 

Lately all I see in the world is division. We are divided by our race, by our color, by our religion, by our bank accounts (or lack-there-of), by our language, by how many followers we have on Instagram and Twitter.

. . . Divide and conquer. . .

We are taxing our friends and family. Favors are done for favors, not out of kindness. Altruism has become selfish and giving isn’t free. Everything revolves around power. Power over money, power over others and power over the earth.

. . . Give to the near of kin his due, and also to the needy and the wayfarers . . .

We have become a world of greed. Greed for food, greed for material things, greed for power. We have abandoned our morality, we have abandoned our spirituality, we have abandoned our humanity. To be humane was having or showing compassion or benevolence. We do this no longer. Compassion is attributed to weakness. Strength is the equivalent of power and money.

Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth are now Virtuous. Humility, Kindness, Abstinence, Chastity, Patience, Liberality and Diligence are the new Seven deadly sins. The world is upside down and backward.

The only salvation that we have left is reform. We need to reform the way we think, reform the way we feel, the way we learn, the way we walk and the way we treat each other. Hell is upon us. It is not some faraway place as described in religious books. It is here, on earth and we have made this its home. Evil is not the Devil or Satan or demons, Evil are we who have corrupted everything that is beautiful.

The more things change, the more they get worse. . .

. . . and somethings will never change.

No matter how I see it, no matter how I try, the only solution to all that has gone wrong is for the guardians of this earth to come forth. Come forth and reveal. . .

Let’s change the world! #wearehere

It seems that I’ve forgotten what my worth is. I’m disappointed! I’m disappointed in so many things I don’t even know where to begin. I’m disappointed in myself for letting things get this complicated inside my own head. I honestly don’t know why I expect so much from others. I should have learned by now that no one will ever be invested in anything more than me. I am the most loyal and most passionate person that I know. What saddens me the most is that I know I’m never going to find someone who is loyal and passionate as I am about anything. so maybe I’m destined to be alone. For some people it’s big things like cheating and financial stability, and people say don’t sweat the small stuff; but I do I do sweat the small stuff.

For example I will never understand why men think it’s okay to enamor more than one woman at the same time. Do men not value themselves? Do they feel like in order for them to be real men they need to have more than one woman? As a woman, I don’t want a man who makes every woman feel special; I want a man who only makes me feel special. I’m really not a jealous person but what is mine is mine I don’t want to share it. And why would any man want to share himself with more than one woman? Most women are high maintenance!

I read somewhere that gentleman look for ladies. So when ladies ask where are the gentleman, we really want to know. I don’t feel like I ask for too much. I just want someone compassionate, understanding, loyal, respectful, ambitious, you don’t have to look like a supermodel. I want someone who keep their promises. Don’t tell me you’re going to call and then not, don’t tell me you’re going to text and then not. Be a man of your word. Set yourself apart from the boys that are out there today. There are boys and there are men. There are girls and there are women. Same species, different breeds.

I really don’t know if it’s just me. I feel like every woman deserves to be treated with kindness, respect, loyalty, and above all like a woman, like a lady. I know I get it, there are some women out there who act like men. Then go around with that nonchalant casual sex attitude. I used to be one of those women. But at 30 I realized that its not about how many people you can f***. Life is about being here living, I heard a song recently, by Alicia Keys.  We are here. She talks about why we are here and what’s wrong with the world!

We are here to care for each other. We are here to be there for one another. It always surprises me when I see someone talking negatively about someone else or saying things that could potentially harm the other person in some sort of way. I never understood that. I don’t understand that. I know sometimes you just want to let people know, “hey this is what’s up”. There’s a way to do that, and not look like a fool, like a hater, like a person who is a negative Nelly.

At the end of the day I think that was wrong with this world is that there are too many good people who don’t speak up. Too many bad people who talk too much. Because there are bad people out there with intentions to destroy everything around them. God willing, Goddess willing, you’ll get tired of this, we will all get tired of this.

I live by this simple rule: do what you will and harm none. People ask me what does that mean exactly? It means that you should never do anything that will harm you or the people around you. Not just the people, the creatures on this earth. We should never do any harm to anything that sustains us, not just in the physical sense, in the emotional sense, in the spiritual sense, in the mental sense. And again we should never do anything that will bring harm to the harmony in those around us. If you speak ill of someone, and it causes turmoil in their life, you are harming. Littering, you are harming us. Smoking, you are harming yourself and everyone around you. Driving drunk, you are creating a potential situation where you will harm yourself and others. I believe we are all connected. We are all connected through the energy given off of this earth. We are all connected because we are all the same.

You see, we are all just souls contained in physical bodies, passing through this current life. We are a soul, trapped inside, this physical body. We are all light! Some of our lights shine brighter than others, but we are all light. A friend of mine once told me, you are like a walking fortune cookie. She’s right. I’m a motivator, I’m a go getter.

So with that said go out there you! Go out there be the change you want to see in this world. If you don’t like something change it, if you can’t change it, change your attitude. Be the rainbow in someone’s day! Love deeply. Live everyday like its the last day of your life. Help those who need help. Be there for your neighbor. Don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep. Be a good man. Be a good woman. Be a gentleman. Be a lady. Treat everyone with love, kindness and respect.

most important of all! Love yourself! Respect yourself! Take care of yourself! because if you can’t help me change the world, who will?

Pent up

Everyday I feel as though its never going to end
This sorrow that i feel inside is hard to comprehend
Its almost like my feelings have been locked up so long
I can’t control them ever even when I know I’m wrong
