It Gets Better


I wanted to talk this morning about turning things around. A few days ago, my Facebook memory from 3 years ago was “I would like to catch a damn break!” I remember exactly all the crap I was dealing with at the time. Never enough money, car dying, and a metric shit ton of negativity in life. I was mired in low vibes no matter how hard I tried. I should note that I had not come back to my magic yet – so I was stuck with mundane solutions. Those will only get you so far.

Not too long after that post, I remembered who I am. I am a witch. I do not accept the shit other people give me so they can ignore their own problems for a moment to watch others suffer. I am fucking magical and I can take control of my life again.

So I did.

The first thing I did was get back to gratitude. I got a cute little journal that made me happy to look at, and I made a list every morning of all the things in my life to be grateful for. I discovered there was far more than I had been allowing myself to see.

Then it was time to address the negativity that permeated my home.

I got some uncrossing spray from a Hoodoo shop online. Every week, I sprayed the crap out of my house. Every corner. Every door. Every window. I would spray myself after my showers. I would banish negativity with every spray and speak gratitude into the energetic space left open.

Slowly, I could see things changing. I felt lighter. The energy in my home was no longer thick with negativity. The weight of the world was coming off my shoulders.

Within 6 months, the energy of my life had vastly improved. 

I got a little raise (which is better than no raise at all). Eventually I managed to get enough money together to buy a fairly new car. And best of all, I was working my magic more and more into my life again. I was taking back control.

Things certainly weren’t perfect, but they were better. And they kept improving.

Now here I am, 3 years later. I live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country doing something I love for a living – all because I found my magic again. I decided to believe in myself once more. I allowed my guides (who had been patiently waiting for me to get my shit together) back in and started listening.

It gets better. Believe in yourself and keep going.
