“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

Roald Dahl

This is what I believe…

I believe that this planet is much too small to hold all of my dreams and that is why my brain is always venturing off to other worlds.

I believe Magick is real and not only does it surround us—it lives within us.

I believe chocolate really is the cure for everything.

I believe in questioning what you are told.

I believe challenges are opportunities.

I believe love is the most powerful force ever created.

I believe cats are Aliens.

I believe mountain air will fix all that ails city lungs.

I believe water heals everything.

I believe a long, deep, intellectual conversation over hot tea is better than sex.

I believe passionate sex after that long conversation is even better.

I believe a day in the garden with dirty hands, and unmanicured nails is a day fulfilled.

I believe that my opinions are too strong, too bold and too revolutionary to keep to myself and so I became a Torchbearer.

I believe Hekate gave me no other option.

I believe Lucifer is a Bringer of Light, Knowledge and Wisdom and if there were to be any “True God” it would be Him.

I believe religion served its purpose but humanity is so far detached from its teachings that now the once holy words are words full of hate.

I believe coffee is the only drug you should be addicted to.

I believe that statement was incorrect and you should add marijuana to the list.

I believe many of you will not see the sarcasm in that last line.

I believe in all that is seen and unseen.

I believe all fairy tales have truth to them.

I believe in the unifying power of the collective conscious and unconscious.

I believe Carl Jung was one of the greatest minds to ever exist.

I believe we are living in some sort of Matrix.

I believe night creatures are secret keepers.

I believe stars are wishes being made.

I believe there is no hell, or heaven, but a place of creation we all stop at before moving on to our next incarnation or start the ascension process.

I believe people are scared to swim in my depths.

I believe most days I am scared to swim in my depths.

I believe Magick is neither black nor white but everything and nothing.

I believe in the power of the Serpent and Dove.

I believe that the Wild Woman will make this planet whole again.

I believe toxic masculinity has poisoned our Divine Masculine and He needs to be revived.

I believe plants are Spirits—

I believe just about everything is Spirit.

I believe in the grounding power of walking barefoot as often as possible.

I believe our hair is antenna.

I believe this list doesn’t truly begin to cover all that I believe.

I believe the complexities of my belief make me a divinely unique being.

I believe you are the same, too.
