I knew a witch who was offended because a woman went to church and prayed to Jesus to help her find a husband. The witch referred to the woman as a fake Jesus-Loving- Bible-Toter and refused to sell her a love spell to attract a husband. I am just going to call a spade a spade; this was one of the most ridiculous things I had ever heard—and maybe
I was ignorant for not speaking up-- but I didn’t have the courage at the time. So I am writing now what I wanted to tell the Witch at that time—in my heart this is what I believe happened when the woman went to church and prayed to Jesus.
The woman went to church and prayed for a husband—and Jesus inspired her to seek the services of the baddest- the G.O.A.T Witch that he knew of that the woman could get in contact with who would deliver her a husband. This is what I believe. This is how I think.
Everything works together for our highest good. I believe that magic is simply a practical way of bringing forth from our subconscious our deepest and most sincere desires so that we can align our thoughts and actions with our desire so that we can recognize when we have what we say we want.
The reason I say, “What we say we want” is because we are eternal beings. We don’t need anything and this is why after people get what they want they become bored with it and want something else—just like babies. When we finally give babies the thing that they have been crying for—the baby will play with it for a few moments before letting it drop to the floor.
I believe that as we progress spiritually we need less physical matter to help us manifest what we want because we have learned how to use our imagination and utilize our mental powers. In addition to the fact that we want less material things and attune to the feeling nature of what we want to experience-- we realize that we have come to this planet for a brief moment in time to love and be loved.
People who go to church hate people who practice magick, people who are involved in the occult are intolerant of people who are Christians, Muslims, etc.
Even though all religions declare and acknowledge that nothing is more powerful than Love they are mostly all intolerant of loving and respecting anyone who does not abide by their rules, ideology, beliefs, and religion. This is a blatant contradiction – in my opinion—of what Infinite Love is.
I teach at a community college and in my classroom, we do a lot of group assignments. In one of my classes, I had a Nun in full habit (They are now called Sisters), a Muslim dressed in her Hijab, and a male Witch in a group together laughing, cracking jokes, and sharing their stories with each other while working on their project.
I broke down crying in tears of joy. I will never forget this day as long as I live. I am crying tears of joy as I type this. The number one rule in my classroom is that we all grow, learn, and evolve through each other’s truth. The more we share our stories from our heart space and not from our egos the more we expand as infinite, loving, and powerful beings.
I am a spiritual slut. I am a multi-spiritual being. I practice Feng Shui, I carry an orange bible with me that was given to me while I was skipping high school in the ninth grade by an old white man. The old white man asked me if I accepted, Jesus Christ in my life as my Lord and Savior, and I put down my jumbo size olive green Tupperware cup filled with Southern Comfort and Ginger ale on the swing, and took the Eve Light 12o cigarette out of my mouth and stepped on it—and said yes.
I was 15-years-old at the time. This Bible is still in my purse. I took it with me to the abortion clinic, to take my GED, to take my Doctoral exams, to every job interview, and to say Good bye at my father’s Grave.
When I became enraged at work and called my co-worker a mother-fuc$@#r at a meeting, I went to my office, called home, and told my daughter to burn my protection candles made by my favorite witches. My magick candles have never failed me. I know that when I am using my “Sh@T” I must be in the right head space because karma is real.
While fasting, I have taken my bible, my magick candles, Gemstones, spell jars, incense, and cauldron, outside under the full moon to petition and cast a spell for the Universe to bestow grace and mercy upon my life.
When people ask me, why my life size Jesus is white—the question seems small and mundane in the big scheme of who I really am. In my Jungle Beauty Goddess Book series, Jesus’s Mother and Father are Black, and his brother, Shiva is blue. I would think one would have bigger concerns.
I don’t believe in or prescribe to any religion, however; I do believe that there is some truth, knowledge, and practices from all religious dogma, metaphysics, and spiritual practices that can help people heal themselves and take control of their own lives. I believe in God, I believe in angels, spiritual guides, and of course I talk to and hug Trees.
