Solitary: A Self-Directed Spiritual Life

Let's talk. Come sit with me under a tree or by a lake while we chat about being alone in our practice and our beliefs. Solitary practitioners choose this path for many reasons and have a unique perspective. As a solitary witch, I want to share how I keep true to my beliefs and practices whether I'm working on my own, in a small group or attending a large group gathering. Author of Moon Affirmations, meditations based on the phase of the moon.

My daughter and I were driving through rural Wisconsin.  She was complaining about the blandness of the landscape. I said I see the potential. Spring is a Time when you can look out a crossed everything a field your life and it's a blank slate it's a blank canvas that you can decide what it will be as used take a step forward throughout the year.

What will you paint on your Kansas this year.  There is a myriad of options ultimately it's about what you want to harvest at the end of the year.

Looking at the blank canvas at the potential is can be difficult. There are so many options you can feel overwhelmed. You may not see the one that stands out the best for you.

Spring can be a hard time for me because there are so many options. What will I focus on this year? Will it be writing? will it be painting? will it be crocheting? will it be family issues? what will it be what what does the next year hold?

The potential lies they are just beneath the surface. particularly at this time of the year when we aren't done with winter and spring is just a hint on the breeze.  We have days that are at ease of 40 degree weather maybe even edging towards 50. Yet we still have wind chills below zero and the dampness and cold of winter.

This means we can still spend some time meditating and determining what path is best for us to take what potential we want to fulfill. At the same time we can look forward and see that potential and see the different options and in order to try out what we think we might want to do.

Spring is messy. It's about the land coming back to life. it's the mod and the grit and the dirtiness of the previous year's debris. At the same time it's letting go of all of the last year and looking forward to what comes next. It's the new flowers peeking through adding a layer brightness. it's the light green of the first Spears of new grass. It's about the first steps in the next phase of your life.

There will be some things that are the same. Yet spring offers a fresh start a new beginning and a new hope. It offers an opportunity to remake yourself and your life to better fit who you want to be and how you want to behave.

Spring is the time when we have a chance to look at Who We Are and who we could be. It's is the moment when we make a choice, whether we will be the best person we can be or the worst. Ultimately we land somewhere in between but on the precipice of spring we have that moment of decision and hopefully clarity. Spring is potential. Spring is about renewal, opportunity and choices.

As a solitary, I consider myself a pagan witch who is seeking. Residing in rural Wisconsin, by day I work as a clerical worker and at night I spend my spare time writing. Writing is my way of expressing my feelings about my world and life. Raised on a farm, I have a love for nature and am inspired by the beauty and power I find there. I've been married for 33 years and have three adult daughters. Some of my other interests include cooking, genealogy, reading and crocheting.
