Some Thoughts

If you follow me over at Instagram, you’ll know that I needed to step back and take a break. I’ve been feeling more and more uncomfortable with my level of involvement in the divination and pagan communities. I spoke a little bit about that in my last blog post. This last couple of weeks I watched some more drama unfold in the community. I then watched a lot of mental health terms thrown around with no care for who that effects. I’m actually disgusted at how the whole community responds anytime that there’s major drama.

So, I’ve decided to step back from the divination and pagan communities for the foreseeable future. I was going to say “permanently”, but I don’t believe in restricting my options.

That means that some things will change here on the blog and on my various social media accounts.

It’s amazing how toxic drama will push us to make the decision that we’ve needed to make for a while.

Just to be Clear

I am making these changes because the direction of my life is changing, drastically. I am coming to terms with some of these changes, others I am having a hard time with (such as being gender queer). My personal spiritual journey is just that, personal. I feel strongly not to share that in the depth that I have been.

I don’t know where my life is going at the moment. I am in that in-between stage. Some major things have ended, but I haven’t yet stepped into the beginning of the new things just yet. I’m working on that.

You know when you’re trying to break through to the next level in something and you feel like you hit a wall that more feels like a flexible membrane of some sort and it just throws you back? That’s where I’m at now. I have walked away from this moment so many times and returned to the safe things, which is talking about divination. This time I need to break through this membrane. I need to get to the next level of where I’m going.

Nothing changes if nothing changes.

Changes on the Blog

I will no longer be posting about divination or paganism. There are enough voices, and I don’t feel that I necessarily have anything extra or earth-shattering to add.

Instead I will be blogging about:

  • Creativity: including writing, reading, and my various art and craft projects, and
  • LGBTQ and Gender Issues: coming out as gender queer at my age is a big deal. Being gender queer puts me in the category of “trans”, meaning that I don’t identify with the gender I was assigned at birth. There’s a lot of issues here that I need to unpack, so I will be sharing part of my journey.

For the moment that will be it. I might expand that in the future. As I keep reminding myself, this is my blog and I’ll write about what I want to write about. If people are unhappy with my choices then they have the right to not read my blog.

My comments will remain moderated indefinitely. Know that any hate speech will simply be deleted.

Instagram

This is my favourite social media platform. I will no longer be sharing any divination or pagan/witchy stuff. I will probably unfollow quite a few people who blog about that stuff. I’m completely fine if people want to unfollow me.

I will be sharing:

  • Creativity: quotes, photos of my art and craft projects, and
  • LGBTQ and Gender Issues: quotes, regrams of other people’s stuff about these issues, etc, and
  • Social Activism: especially to do with intersectional feminism, LGBTQ and Gender, etc.

If you don’t want to see those sorts of posts OR if you are the sort of person who likes to argue and troll those sorts of posts, please unfollow me. I would hate to have to report and block anyone.

YouTube

I will be deleting all my videos and I have no plans to create any videos in the near future. In the long term? I have no idea.

Facebook

Like most people, I have a hate hate relationship with Facebook. I will be deleting my actual page. I’ll also be leaving a couple of groups. Once again, simply because the direction of my life is changing.

Other than that?

Other than that, I really don’t know where this journey will take me. Hopefully to a deeper understanding of myself and connecting with other gender queer people.
