You Can Take Me Out of The Domestic Witch, but You Can't Take The Domestic Witch Out of Me
About a week ago, I fully intended on leaving behind The Domestic Witch blog, Twitter, and Facebook page. I created another blog, another Facebook page, and even renamed my Twitter.
Two days after announcing I was doing just this I began having nightmares. I rarely have nightmares much less have them days in a row. This was the first sign that what I was doing wasn't quite right.
My new blog, Facebook page, and Twitter was about politics and feminism and I absolutely loved it. I poured myself into it. Yet...something was missing.
At first I thought it was just because I lacked fans and readers. It wasn't easy going from several thousand to around seventy. Yet I was thoroughly enjoying what I was posting. Even with the several thousand likes I usually only got a few responses to my political and feminist posts, so that wasn't it.
I went on posting but I still could not shake the feeling that something was missing. It felt like it was something that should be obvious.
Then today I was meditating and I opened myself up to the Divine in a way I hadn't done in a long time. I mean a looooong time. For those of you that regularly read this blog or my Facebook page, you know that I've felt rather abandoned by the Divine in the last months. Goddess finally reached out to me and she said...
You are denying the most important aspect of feminism to you. You are denying that you are a witch. You are denying Me. You will return to The Domestic Witch.
I wanted to cry. It felt like I had made a huge mistake but a very embarrassing one. To announce that I was leaving The Domestic Witch and then come back after such a big dramatic exit made me feel like a complete ass.
Goddess had a response to this. She said...
It'll be okay because writing The Domestic Witch is how you honor me. This is how you serve Me.
What am I going to do? Tell Goddess that I refuse to serve Her? Of course not. However, She did advise me to take The Domestic Witch in a new direction. Goddess worship, feminism, and celebrating being a woman will be a huge focus of the blog, my Twitter, and my Facebook page.
This is why I had grown bored. I knew that I wasn't supposed to keep blogging about the same old things. While I love Paganism, Wicca, and Witchcraft, I wasn't writing about the things that are most important to me spiritually. I also want to post more about the environment, politics, and things like Monsanto.
So here I am. Crawling back with my tail between my legs, hoping very few noticed that I had actually left in the first place. Even if you didn't notice that I left, I hope you will notice the blog, Twitter, and Facebook page from here on out is different. It goes deeper. It's about things that affect us deeply. The posts are more spiritual and less religious. Because to be honest I feel like my posts have been overall fairly shallow.
I forgot what it means to be a witch.
