Words for the Month

Recently I took a Crystal Grid class with Rhianna of The Dreaming Goddess in Poughkeepsie, NY. Although the class was Interesting from Beginning to End, the word that got stuck in my brain was, Manifest. Make it Manifest. Then I read for my QiGong instructor and his lovely wife. Again, the word Manifest came up alot in our discussion. In My Life, Ideas and Revelations come in when I encounter whatever it is, 3 times. So I write this as my Third Encounter with the word, Manifest. I'm setting my Intentions for the Summer. I want to Have Fun. I want to Laugh. I want to Meet New People. Try New Adventures. That is all. Not looking for My Prince, Not Looking to Make Millions, I'm Keeping it Simple this Summer. I Just Want to Have Fun Daily & In The Moment.

The Dreaming Goddess


I was very excited to find this wonderful store in Poughkeepsie, NY. I have been fascinated with crystal grids, yet never knew how to set them up. I took a wonderful class at The Dreaming Goddess store with Rhianna, the store's owner. It was an all day affair, but worth it. I learned so much. The headline picture is a grid I created. Rhianna's store is a wonderful road trip. It was nice to meet some like minds and make new friends. Her website lists events for the month and her pricing is reasonable. Her online store is great. I especially loved her Crystal page which lists alphabetically crystals and their meaning. Being ADHD, I cannot remember crystal meanings, so I have a tendency to choose intuitively. I plan to visit the Dreaming Goddess again soon for one of their New Moon ceremonies. You can find Rhianna and her Crew at,

Obiexu Botanica


I met Rafael Pena when I was at the Crossroads in My Life, 18 years ago. I had no idea he was a high priest in the Santeria religion. All I knew was, he was a funny man all dressed in white whose readings were on point. I ended up divorcing, selling my house and taking two small kids with me down a completely different path. I have not regretted it. 18 years later, I bumped into Rafael Pena again in my school. His children attend my school. No coincidences. Now getting ready to retire with no clue what to do next, this funny man has appeared again. One of the reasons I write this blog is to keep people aware that there are no coincidences. I ventured down to his botanica again for some much needed guidance. He has grown in his religion and I found his reading most interesting. If you are looking for direction as well as willing to try a different style of reading, you may want to take a trip to Yonkers, NY to see Rafael. You'll find Obiexu Botanica on FaceBook at, Obiexu Botanica. He's a popular guy, so you may want to make an appointment so you do not wait for hours. Please feel free to use my name.

The 7 Hermetic Principles


I received an email recently discussing the 7 Hermetic Principles. It caught my eye being, I am a Gemini, my Ruling Planet is Mercury/Hermes. Unfortunately, the witch that sent it was asking me to collect all 7 plaques at the price of $60 a pop and collect them all with their various snakeoils. I decided not to. I did start googling around to review this interesting topic and wasn't disappointed. Too vast to discuss here, but worth a Shout Out Due To Its Very Ancient Wisdom. There is a book for about $5 you can find online that discusses the Principles. Here is the best link I found on the Topic, The 7 Hermetic Principles. Oh and By The Way, My Blog is Free.

Next month, we will look at Botanicas & Spiritualism. Peace.
