Personal Bio

Remember these three words and practice them constantly: Patience, Effort, and Discipline!

"Do not posture yourself for the adversary or obstacle, instead let it be them who posture themselves for you." ~ Myself, during a quiet moment of reflection and contemplation.

Like beauty, morality and and much else is in the eye of the beholder. We all see, think, and perceive things differently, thus truth is subjective to our own experience.

"In studying ourselves, we find the harmony that is our total existence. We do not make harmony. We do not achieve it or gain it. It is there all the time. Here we are, in the midst of this perfect way, and our practice is simply to realize it and then to actualize it in our everyday life." - Maezumi Roshi

I study and practice a variety of different magics but I rely heavily on Element, Nature, and Spirit Magic. I am a Shaman, Witch, Healer, Seer, and Herbalist. I strive to be healthy and of sound mind, body, and spirit. And though my journey has been difficult thus far, I know I must work harder as I have a million or so miles to go. My core practices and areas of study are: Shamanism, Herbal Medicine, Philosophy, Spellcasting, and Divination. I am here only to learn and share what I know with others; to make friends with like minded individuals. I have my beliefs and my opinions and I speak freely about them, just as I respect the opinions and beliefs of others even if they don't agree with mine. If you need help with something I encourage you to ask and I will manage to do what I can.

Blessings, Othala
