Full moon – 10th February

Posted by jackiepope on February 10, 2020

Good morning to you all out there,

Last night, the moon shone down in all her glory. It was really quite magnificent, and the energy that it contained was amazing. This full moon seems to have kicked off a week that is going to be full of surprises, and full of good things. And that is for everybody.

On Friday night, the moon was waxing, and I was at the Adam Lambert and Queen concert. To see the sunset over the stage, and the moon rising as the music was playing was quite an incredible sight. How often do we stop and simply revel in the moment? How often do we stop and experience the magic? During the concert, there was the most beautiful light show, with lights playing on the smoke and mist around the stage. I looked around me and saw how many people were simply transfixed with this beautiful sight. There are very few moments, where we can stand in awe of something beautiful… Whether man-made, or natural.

It would seem to me, that this is the focus for me this week. To be in awe of what ever is beautiful around me; and take the time to enjoy it. Because these moments are very fleeting, the light show was maybe 5 to 10 minutes, and it’s gone. The moon hangs and sky for 12 hours, and then gives way to the sun. Which has its own beauty. But how often do you sit outside and moongaze?

Whatever catches my eye and my attention this week, I will pay it more attention, appreciate the moment, and take note.

Because the moon energy is so strong at the moment, starting the week off with a bang is important. Start the week how you mean to go on. Sit down with a cup of coffee and make a list of what you want to achieve, and if it’s a long list then just choose three. And let’s get it done.

If you are looking for a new job, take a photo copy of your CV, and placed it on your altar, or windowsill or shelf, then light a green candle every evening for five days.Light it at the same time, snuff it out when you go to bed, and relight the next evening. If you are looking for love, then draw a heart on a piece of paper, make it pretty, colour it in, and place it underneath a red candle and do the same as for the green candle.

If you are looking for healing, then a blue candle; and if you are looking for wisdom, knowledge and anything to do with study use a yellow candle.

The simple act of lighting a candle adds another layer of energy to your wish. You can add other layers of intent, by lighting some incense – something fresh and green for your job; patchouli or Rose for love; dragons blood for healing, and citrus for wisdom and knowledge.

You can add other layers, with music, meditation, flowers and herbs. And that is an art within itself. Creating layers of intent, and creating a moments of clarity, and beauty. Enjoy that moment of clarity, of beauty, and the energy that you have layered and created. Whatever it is you are focusing on, will happen very quickly. If you do this on a full moon, or even right now, while we are still under the influence of a full moon, whatever it is you intend will come into being within 28 days.

Have an amazing week.

Monday Muse 2020

Posted by jackiepope on February 3, 2020

This is something I did a few years ago – I would write a Muse every Monday; and now I do a live broadcast on Facebook from time to time. I miss the art of sitting and writing. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary – I am going to Monday Muse again.

What to write? Wyrdsisters has come a long way; and now I can work wherever I want, and whenever I want. I have fabulous clients and friends; and wish there was a word that describes the two joined together! For clients become friends, and friends become clients.

It has been a journey since I returned home from Australia in 2011; and this year I made a pledge to not talk about the past, and the events I have been through. It is interesting that when you make such a pledge to yourself – how many people want to start talking about the very subject you want to forget. Suddenly, I am being asked questions; and asked to help people out who are facing the same thing (breast cancer). And I just cannot do it. That sounds ungrateful and harsh; but I am not the person who can talk to another person who is suffering; why? Because when I talk to someone about it; it brings up the memories I am trying to put aside. My journey will never be the same as someone else’s. What I went through and experienced will have been totally different and irrelevant.

Everyone walks their own journey; be it with illness; broken heart; broken dreams. And when you reach a place where you feel healed; and you know there are amazing things out there for you, you do not want to recall the past.

Also, I am rather fed up of being told how brave I am/was; how I came out the other side with this new spark of energy and full on attitude. It was not brave; I did not battle a demon; or some dark monster. I was unwell; I had a growth, it was taken out; I was drenched in poisons; and now I am well. It is that simple. There are women (and men) out there with far worse things than a tumour – they are the brave ones.

Wow; I did not expect to write that – that is what I love about Monday Muse – it is my space to write what I want; and obviously this has been a little bit of a thorn in my side.

Someone suggested I write a small booklet or pamphlet on my cancer – how I coped with stuff; tips and things I did to get through it – now that I can do; and then I can just email it. That is now on my ‘to do’ list.

Remember to check the website; there are some interesting readings coming – and the greeting cards have just gone up… you will love those.

Over and out…

Time Travel

Posted by jackiepope on February 15, 2016

The past 16 years have bought all sorts of people into my life, and so many experiences I would never have had if I led an ordinary life.

So to celebrate I am going to do some time traveling over the next few days with stories and people I have met on the way.

I have recently reconnected with Alaina, who was with me back in the day in New Lynn, and she helped me establish Wyrdsisters in St Kevin’s arcade. She reminded of the time in the Delta Avenue shop that we had the most amazing evening for Beltane.

We had 100 candles burning in the shop window, and we had the best ritual ever, and the champagne was flowing, lots of good food. When suddenly we saw half a dozen people standing outside with their hands on my window (which I had just cleaned), Alaina and I went outside and here were these people praying. All with two hands on the window, and praying like there was no tomorrow.

Alaina and I thanked them very much for the good wishes, which of course was not their goal, and they spluttered and choked trying to tell us we were evil, wicked and the devil’s spawn (I don’t think my Mother considers herself the devil). It was such a delight. Here we all are in full celtic drag – cloaks, oak and swords, and the local born again’s in their anoraks and woolly jumpers. We thought it only right to give them blessings in return – now that they did not like, and left in rather a hurry.

Some of the things that happen in the life of an Esoteric Shopkeeper.

Monday Muse 7th December 2015

Posted by jackiepope on December 7, 2015
MONDAY MUSE
Good morning friends, neighbours, family, clients, enemies and anyone else who is happening to read this,
 
I am sitting in Pakuranga with the most divine dog Fry – he is sulking at the moment as everyone has gone on holiday and he is stuck with this pink haired woman who wants way too many cuddles and strokes! I am drinkin Dr Pepper cola – totally sugar… can’t help myself today, and yes I had coffee, and scotch fingers and it is one of those kinds of day. I don’t care…
Christmas is around the corner, my veritable nightmare, and I did have to have a daughter who adores Christmas and spent the weekend with the two children doing Santa Parades, letters to Santa, and making paper chains and Christmas trees. Thankfully I am now in Pakuranga in a house totally devoid of Christmas – sanity! Actually it was a great week out in the country.

I drove to Pakuranga with Tom Jones full blast on cd player, and at Te Irirangi drive the window washers were all out – I had my $2 because my screen is filthy and I welcomed the clean – the young man started grooving to Tom Jones and I got quite a show. What absolute fun! I handed over the $2, got a fabulous smile, and thank god he didn’t say happy Christmas.
Yes I know window washers are a pain to some of you – not to me, I don’t wash my screen you see, I keep forgetting and actually all of the ones I have met are polite – and if you smile – an extra scrub of the window is your reward. Smile…. Yes people SMILE. Last week I told you to put the BLOODY PHONE DOWN. Now this week DAMN WELL SMILE.
 
Yes it is hell out there, and yes I don’t have to sit in traffic, in the heat, avoiding idiots on the road; and no I don’t have to do late night shopping (I can go anytime) for food; and I already have the few Christmas presents that I wished to purchase. But, when I do drive out there, I let people in the lane, and I let people get out of driveways and I smile. Why? Because they are probably having a far crappier day than I am. I am probably heading off for coffee, maccers, cake or art supplies, or wool…. Or visiting someone nice. They are probably taking the Mother in Law to a dentist appointment, or Christmas Shopping, I don’t know which would be worse. But you see my point?
 
Oh and please blast music on the radio, I have realised I have stopped listening to music, it is something I could not stand during chemo daze (days). But a dear friend who has come back into my life gave me some CDs – Hot Chocolate, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond – perfect turn up loud and sing music. So today I am going to burn off a CD for the car with everything else that I love, and singing in the car is coming back into my life!
SMILE at the man making your coffee wearing the silly Santa Hat – the corporate coffee company said he had to, and now he has hat hair every day; and think about the woman in the department store who listens to the same Christmas Music all day – and her company said they had to start Christmas Music on November 26th. A whole month of Drummer Boy and Silent Night. SMILE at the harassed Mum in the supermarket who just wants to get her stuff and get out… but her child has other ideas. She needs a SMILE, and she needs to be told she is being a fabulous mother.
 
Yes, I am asking you to SMILE and give a COMPLIMENT. Do you remember what that is? We are so quick to criticise and give negative feedback. And yes, you have heard all this before, because I have written it all before, and other people have written it before. But I say this with extra fervour this year. And I ask you personally to commit to telling your children they are amazing (no matter what age they are); complimenting your partner; telling the coffee guy he makes the best coffee – of course he knows you are lying through your back teeth – but you said it, in front of others – you made his day!
And you say… who are you that you could ask us to personally commit? What sway do I have over you? Why on earth would you listen to an old tart who reads cards, has pink hair and is in love with Dr Who, and writes horoscope columns for a living? Well you don’t have to do anything I ask at all…
 
So why do I ask you to smile? Simple – there is enough crap in this world at the moment – the UK with a stabbing; USA multiple shootings (and good grief you would think by now that they have got the message – guns kill people); France, and Europe under siege. In New Zealand we have our own problems, of course we do. But we live in such a blessed country. Where I can smile at a gorgeous young man washing my windscreen in total safety; where I can walk around my neighbourhood with not a care in the world; where if I have only a few dollars in my purse I can buy a loaf of bread; butter, milk, tomatoes, cheese and avocado and still have change out of $20.00!
 
We live in a country where when I got sick no expense was spared, I am alive because of this country’s health system, and sure there are flaws, and it wasn’t the most scenic route I could have taken… but here I am sitting here telling you to damn well SMILE. Bit of a miracle isn’t it? Something to SMILE about.
 
I ask you to SMILE because we live in a country that is supposed to be friendly, where strangers can greet each other in the street. Being out in Pokeno in the new community out there has shown me that it still exists. People know their neighbours, walk the dogs, keep an eye out for each other, pass the time of day. The girl in the ice cream shop knows that Salted Caramel is my favourite, and I have it in a milk shake container with a lid. And she knows I love hotdogs and chips for lunch when I am out there.
SMILE because if you smile your children or the children around you will smile; and that is a wonderful thing. To see children smile, and to hear them laugh. Teach your children to be generous this Christmas, to show them that this is a privilege life we live here in New Zealand; again yes there are flaws – and where there are people there will always be issues; but what if one person drops the ball; what say one person does not care or feed their children properly… in this country there should be hundreds of us standing in line to give that child what it needs. Not through social services, or charity (they do a fantastic job) but perhaps more simply by paying attention to the children around you, their friends. There are ways and means of helping children and their parents without being condescending or waving the big charity flag. A box of groceries on the doorstep; a supermarket voucher; a warm jacket; a pretty dress. Smile at the children around you, and see who smiles back. And the one that does not smile back, pay closer attention… bring a smile to that child’s face.
 
So I have gone around the houses and back, and it might all not make sense, and you might just all think ‘she is on her soap box again’ – well yes I am, I quite like my soap box, I might bring it out a bit more often.
SMILE at the old lady with pink hair singing along to ‘You sexy Thing’ – it could be me. And if you don’t smile at me then may you be cursed with never being able to find the perfect jeans to fit your bum; or the right length trousers; or the curse of the knicker elastic – now that is one curse you do not want to experience.
 
So I ask you to SMILE at least three times a day – more if you can manage it. I will settle for two. But if you do not smile at least twice, then it is the curse of the knicker elastic or the curse of the open fly zipper for you!
Love you long time…

Monday Muse Full Moon September

Monday Muse Fullish Moon September 2015
 
Monday Muse Fullish Moon 2015
 
Good morning moonbeams, sunbeams and assorted beams, plus the odd unicorn who is watching.
 
Well Full Moon… quite wonderful to be writing on a full moon, and writing randomly – Goddess know what will come out of my keyboard today. One apology, I did not get the Workbook for Full Moon finished, and rather than rush it, I will have it ready for November Full Moon. It has been a busy week finalizing different threads of my life. Some are still needing tying up, but for the most part I am now on my Adventure.
 
I am looking out at the hills, I hardly notice the roofs of the houses in front of me, my eye is drawn to the green and drawn to the sky. The sky is amazing out here. It goes on for miles and miles with clouds, and colour especially at sunset.
 
How do I feel having had one week on my adventure? Well I have rekindled my passion for the internet, that dream to be accessible in some shape or form to people, and to add to the world a down to earth spiritual alternative. I always wanted to people to see how simple all of this was.
 
So many times when I show someone the way they can take, or give clarity about spiritual stuff, people say ‘it cannot be that simple?’ Well yes it can. Life is very simple, being able to enrich it with magic, ritual and blessings makes it all the sweeter. I don’t care if you are not ‘spiritual’, there is still joy in lighting a candle and some incense; enjoying the light the candle casts, and inhaling the aroma of a sweet incense.
 
You don’t have to be spiritual in any shape or form to enjoy that pleasure. Yet in its own way it is a spiritual experience. It is ‘other wordly’
 
So you might work all day, have a boyfriend or partner, and along with that goes all the caring, sharing and compromise; and life is full. You feel the need to do something for yourself, but not sure what. You have tried the crystals, and yes rose quartz works for you, and you love your amethyst ring, but that does not seem to be a philosophy or something you can hang your hat on.
 
You may have been to Yoga, this is something I have tried, but certainly not my thing, even if I can do the pigeon thingy, yoga is not my spiritual shtick. So yoga is not your thing, although the eye candy is quite uplifting at times; so you went and did a shamanic weekend, these can be a little in depth for a first timer, and you probably came out with more questions than you went in with. Don’t get me wrong, these weekend workshops can be amazing, but make sure you do something from someone reputable, that knows their stuff – for instance I would recommend Rosanna from Aroha Healing, her weekends are brilliant; they are safe, instructive and satisfying.
 
But workshops may also take up time for you, and you have not got the time to scour the internet to see if Wicca, Ascended Masters, Druidry or anything else suits. Life kind of has a life of its own. And yet, in your soul there is a yearning to do something.
 
And that something can be simple.
 
And when you start doing something rather than looking for something to do you will be led to what is right.
 
So now you are going to ask ‘What can I do then?’
 
So here are 10 things to do:
 
1. Light a candle and/or incense. Do it when you can. Get into the habit of naming someone you love when lighting the candle and incense.
2. Create an altar – whether you are spiritual or not, whether you follow a pathway or not – everyone should have a sacred place. A window sill, a chest, a shelf. Put your treasures on the altar; your favourit necklace, a photo of ones you love, candles, incense, crystals, flowers, leaves. Anything and everything. It is your special place, and you will find you will change it according to your moods.
3. When you cook a meal, create it magically… even if it is beans on toast. Light a candle, and cook with intent – sit down at a table and eat – even if you are alone. Dedicate the meal to someone.
4. Plant a tree, in a pot, or in the forest. Name the tree for yourself. This is where your roots are, this represents growth, depth and abundance.
5. Do something for someone else every day. You probably do this already.
6. Do something for yourself every day.
7. Keep a daily journal. If you are too tired to write, or it is not your thing, then start a photographic diary, or online scrapbook diary – with the iphone and ipad these days it is easy to take a picture during the day and save it to your journal.
8. Be with children regularly. If you do not have children of your own –find some… play in the park, listen to their point of view on life, listen and join in their pure laughter and joy of the day.
9. Be with animals (if you like them) and enjoy their total sense of self.
10. And lastly…. Don’t try so hard to find it. In fact don’t try and find it at all, it will find you.
 
Well that went somewhere entirely different to what I expected, but there it is… have the most fabulous day people…
 
Blessings
