Last week, I gave insight on how I entered the world of spirituality. This week, I was going to discuss feminine energy and sexuality but I lost the damn document in the process of writing it. Something wasn’t sitting right or resonating with me at that time anyway because my focus needed to be elsewhere. So, with that being said, I want to discuss the bold truth about spiritualism. Yes, it sounds scary and bad but don’t fret, I promise you’ll feel better at the end of this article. Let’s get to it.
Many have this misconception that because you’ve decided to be spiritual, you have no issues, you are always positive, and you are just waltzing aimlessly around. I’ll be the one to tell you, that is complete bullshit, okay? This shit here ain’t for the weak.
I am a lover of peace, it is true, but that doesn’t mean I practice it all the time. I get fired up and the 804 in me pops out in a flash. I get sad and cry. I feel everything so deeply, shit that is not even mine to feel because I am an empath. I see things, I imagined (lol sorry. I’m listening to Solange). But no seriously, I have visions of lives— past, present, and future. I have gifts that drain me and when I’m drained, I still have to speak life into those around me. I have work to do in this world that was ordained to me before I was put in my mother’s womb.
Nothing is peachy keen 24/7 in this realm. There are days when I vibrate low, I can be pessimistic and negative as hell. I even feel purposeless, angry, and judgmental. I forget that I am the Golden Bruja and I forget what I’m supposed to be doing.
Anyone that has come to me for enlightenment or advice on spiritualism will tell you I am quick to preach acceptance of all— good, bad, and ugly. Not even to strike fear, but to be honest. The “witches” that buy sage from Sephora will tell you this journey is rainbows and butterflies all the time, I AIN’T GONE TELL YOU THAT BULLSHIT. Ask one of them if that is what you desire to hear. I will not sugarcoat it to protect your feelings. You will deal with shit you never thought you would; spirits, people, and things, if you’re open.
Another thing I want to touch on is the “witches” that buy their Palo Santos from Spencer’s will speak on shit they don’t know about. Real brujas like myself are quick to tell you they do not know something and will place you in contact with someone who does or will help you research until an answer is found.
ALWAYS look for yourself too. Words from people with experience are great, however, everything ain’t for everybody, so search on your own anyway. And know it is okay to not know something. Shit, there is a lot of shit I have no idea about. I learn more each and everyday to help my journey and someone else’s.
Your journey isn’t going to feel perfect but know that every feeling, every up and down, every smile and tear what makes your path unique to you. Don’t forget we are all human. So get mad, cry, scream, but remember your purpose after you are done, refocus, and realign yourself. Be open to what is in store for you but protect yourself along the way. Walk tall and strong, you are divine.
