Emotional Abuse Answers–at Last!

It’s funny how things come around full circle sometimes. If you make the effort to stay in tune with the rhythm of the Universe, you’re led to what you need. That’s what I believe, anyway. Three years ago, I had a vision of creating a website that goes into depth about childhood emotional abuse from the perspective of the adult survivor. I thought the desire to create it had died in me, but it hasn’t. Emotional Abuse Answers is the result.

It’s Not Fair–Or Is It?

It’s Not Fair–Or Is It?

A few days ago, I got a couple of emails from my sister about a financial issue that’s going on right now in my family. For anyone who doesn’t know, I ceased contact with my parents back in 2002. My sister and brother, however, are still in contact with them. My sister recently lost a source of income, and my parents have decided to help her financially by deferring repayment of a loan they got from my brother in order to send the money to her. This touches a sore point for all of us, including me, though I’m not directly involved.

My 2014 Tarot Year Card

My 2014 Tarot Year Card

Every year, I like to figure up my Tarot Year Card. I learned about the Tarot Year Card from Mary Greer’s book “Tarot for Your Self,” which identifies this as the card that represents your particular theme, challenge, and focus for the coming year. Last year’s Tarot Year Card was Justice, which involves assessing your life from a more objective, non-emotional point of view and recognizing where change needs to happen. This year it’s The Hanged Man, which follows Justice in the Tarot. It’s about surrender, taking a different point of view, and honoring who you are.

Summer Solstice/Litha/Midsummer

Summer Solstice/Litha/Midsummer

The summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, also known as Litha or midsummer, comes around about the 20th or 21st of June. It’s the longest day and the shortest night of the year because the sun rises as high as it can go, so we get more daylight. From here on in, the days will be getting shorter and the nights longer until the winter solstice/Yule, when things turn around again. This is a joyful festival to celebrate growth and abundance, energy, and blessings of the sun.

Ostara

Ostara

Ostara, which falls around March 20 in the Northern Hemisphere and September 22 in the Southern Hemisphere, is the spring equinox. Day and night are about equal. From this point on, the days will begin to grow slightly longer. It’s the beginning of spring, although we may not feel that everywhere. Symbolically, Ostara is a time for renewal, fertility, and balance. It’s also a good time to clarify your desires.

Story: The Unseen: Part 3

I tried sleeping for a few hours on the night of the autumn equinox, but it was no use. My stomach seemed to be folding in on itself. There were moments when I thought, No, I won’t do this. This isn’t me. But then I’d think of my mother’s sickening smile and how she spoke to me as if she had a right to rape my mind. If I didn’t go, I was letting her take something from me that I could never get back.

Story: The Unseen: Part 2

It was the middle of summer when my mother came up with the idea that I should volunteer to work the community fields. It was supposed to get me out of the house and in the path of a husband. I would be 40 at the end of autumn, and I wasn’t married. It broke my mother’s heart.
