Digging Deep with Alêtheia
In all of our workings, one must truly use discernment as a means to reach those deepest of truths. Some of the discoveries we make are for us and us alone. The “to be silent” that our own teachers and mentors instilled in us. Knowing when the creative ideas and endeavors fall under that tenet can be tricky, for many reasons.
When we happen upon an idea that sets us on fire, we WANT to share. First, take a deep breath. Next, write it down in the greatest detail possible. DGC started as a much smaller endeavor and then grew exponentially from there each time we spoke about it. Spend time revising and refining. What seems like a good idea first thing in the morning may end up being a cog in the overall idea that, in a week, doesn’t seem quite as feasible.
We all have people in our lives that we trust implicitly. Once you have a good handle on what you hope to achieve, talk to those one or two people that will be honest with you. Not everything should be laid out for the masses. As much as there are energy vampires, there are also those who will take your ideas and run with them. Listen to the Divine. If they’re steering you away from someone/thing, it’s with good reason.
As with all of our Goddesses, I tend to practice sigilcraft. It helps me to connect with the deeper themes of the areas which they hold dominion over. The one above, should you choose to use it, will help with connecting to her on a much deeper level.
Looking at yourself and your relationships
It is important to be honest with yourself about what you will allow in your life. Setting boundaries is not just healthy, but necessary. Revisiting those boundaries, from time to time, is important. This includes not allowing negative self-talk. Thoughts are part of the basis of effective magic, they can become self-fulfilling prophecies very quickly.
When it comes to those in your life, who try to breach the boundaries you’ve set for yourself, speak up. No is a complete sentence. You do not need to have a reason why. Only you can look out for your complete well-being.
