I wanted to make a topic that addresses some of the not so great times in what we do. This retrograde has been rough and I have seen post about people being down. This is to let you know newbie or old timer you are not alone. (It’s also a little bit of me getting a grip on myself too.)
I know coming to this forum especially for a newbie it could be really overwhelming. Some many people have success with Magick and are connected to their high self/ godform (whatever your care to call it). They seem to have success that as a new practitioner you can only dream of. It’s all too good to be true.
What isn’t seen is how it isn’t always rainbows and sunshine.
*A spiritual marriage with Xyz demon could come with a heavy pact to the point that it destroys your human physical relationships.
*The millions of fail spells that are never spoken about. This something that happens to all of us. I can’t how many times something doesn’t go as planned. It does the opposite or it goes too well and it’s too much of what is desired. I just had a jar spell work a little too well and now I need to cast something else to balance it out.
*To find out “who” you are. Only then to find out what you path is. Then to realize that you now put into motion something that you may not have signed up for it you knew before. I have especially lately looked at myself and asked out of billions of people why me?
*The depression with all highs come lows and some of those lows are rock bottom. I have many times thought of escaping with a sharp edge or long leap. This is when having a support system is important to pull you back from the edge and why so
Many on here will rush to the rescue of those that fall into this pit.
*Questioning your sanity daily. Sometimes I am just like there is no way this is real. Again this is when that support system helps.
I have actually been struggling a lot lately. I was born the way I am, but even then know my path, and it terrifies and overwhelms me sometimes.
I can not tell you how many times in the last weeks that I have broken down and cried because everything I have been doing over the past year has just hit me that it’s all real and it is deep.
When I get super down I go to Tarot. Doing readings for others helps me.
I also just took a trip to the beach. I got a hotel packed up the dog and kid and went away from our home for 24 hours. Walking in the sun and sand. Seeing, hearing and feeling the waves just grounded me. I got some much energy and felt so relaxed just because of it.
These are things that help me. It could be different for you.
I welcome anyone who is needing to vent and blow off steam to post below if you need to.
