Welcome to My Magickal Forum.  I would like to invite any witch, pagan, or spiritually open-minded person to let me know how they feel about anything that is taking place in the magickal or mundane or spiritual world. 

This is a place to share ideas with freedom from judgment on your opinion (of course if you invite it then you will deal with the fallout).

My online blog is not meant to be cruel to other people, but just to share my insight on how I see things. I know not everybody is going to agree with me, but I respect freedom of speech as long as it is done with intelligence and reverence. 

SurprisedI do not want hateful or profanity laden responses just because you learned a new word. Sealed These types of responses are only started to get people in a negative frame of mind. I don't want that type of negativity attached to something that I would like to have a positive effect on my small peace of the world.

My Birthday
On June 27th, I celebrated my birthday. Yeah, another turn of the wheel. I celebrated my birthday by doing mundane things like grocery shopping, replacing the tag on my car, and paying bills, instead of going out and throwing myself a birthday party.

I did not miss having to cook or pay for a bunch of people to eat and drink. I did not drink too much and regret it later, and I did not have to make sure everybody was having a good time.  Let's be real when parties are thrown someone always manage to ruin your good time because we expect to much from it.   

I have to be honest and say I thought I would be missing out on something. I thought I was going to be hurt or upset because I was not making a big deal about my birthday, but I wasn't. I told people it was my birthday and received well wishes. I did not receive any gifts, but I realize the pressure of having to give gifts to other people is now off. I do not have to give a gift unless I really want to and in this current economy, I know I will not be giving anything but well wishes and the occasional birthday card.

The gift pressure of birthdays makes me questions who started the gift giving extravaganza. I mean gifts are nice to receive but aren't you happier when you buy the things you want for yourself.  You don't have to tell people you like something when you want to throw it in the garbage. You don't have to re-gift it to another person and make them a link in the negative chain of passing the gift on to somebody else.  Also, the closer the person is to you the longer you feel you have to hold on to the gift. Then make sure you bring it out when they are around.  These actions don't cause resentment,  negativity or karma?  Right?

Also, you don't have to make sure you spent the same amount of money on them that they spent on you. Birthday gift giving is very much like Christmas/Yule/Imbolc gift giving, where people spend too much money and never feel the love or the spirit of giving.

What I have learnt about gift giving is that if you don't give it from the heart and spirit then it is just a waste of time and the pressure you put on another person just to impress them does more harm than good.

This is just my take on things.

Chat at you later!Cool

Goddess Blessed Be to All with harm to none!

I want to Welcome you to My Magickal Blog.

My name is Darkwings. My closest friends know me by this name.  I hope to find a whole new family of friends.

The reason I chose the name of the site is because I am a very fortunate witch. The Goddess, Fortuna, is great to have on your side when you want to bring success to a project that you maybe working on. The Goddess, Aradia, is Queen of the Witches (plus her mother is Diana according to Stregheria - Italian tradition) and who better to have for a Magickal or Spiritual Forum.

I am working to make this the best magickal forum, because I do not see a lot of credible information being offered to open-minded spiritualist.  I try not to label people because everyone tries to place other people in a box. This is a MAJOR pet peeve of mine, because individuals have so many layers that we should be compared to an onion or head of lettuce. Plus, labeling people, I know is not my calling. If you knew everything about me, I am a study of opposite contrast.

Just think about and try to compare your personal life and your professional life. Then look at the different layers that you provide in each of these two areas, whether you are a parent, a lover, a friend, an acquaintance or a stranger. Do you behave in the same manner? Then, why try to label people?  Just you see some in the light of a bitch does not mean that she is not beloved by her children, pets or significant other. 

What are your views? I would love to know what you think about this. So please let me know.  I love hearing different views, because if I agree with you, I will use it (
Of course, with your permission).
