Following The Spiritual Path

          For those of us on a spiritual path of some kind it can be a bit overwhelming at times. Sure there seems to be a lot of responsibility, but it doesn't have to be unpleasant. Many people hear the term "spiritual work" and feel that this is indeed work. Most people associate work with negative emotions, and being somewhere or doing something which you don't want to do. But for me I do not see my spiritual work as work at all. I feel it is more of a blessing or a duty. For example recently we had some issues with our Dark Secret Creations Etsy shop being down. This really upset me, and I was genuinely upset to be in the predicament which I was in. I could not reach some of my clients, and those who contacted me were very distraught when they couldn't find our shop. Our shop was down for an entire week, and I was very saddened because I could not help those people. I couldn't help them, and that made things so bad. When I found out that while the shop was down they could not even send us an Etsy message I felt even worse!! It was then that I realized how deep my love for my spirituality runs. It wasn't really about the money, it wasn't about those lost sales, it was about those people with very important questions and burdens who were seeking out some assistance and I could not help because they could not reach me. 
        I recently realized all of that and I came upon the realization that this was my full calling, but just because I am a spiritual worker does not mean that I cannot have other goals. In my journey here I have come to realize that sometimes when people think of a psychic, medium, etc. they think that their gifts are their entire life. They see spiritual workers as only being able to do that. It is my understanding that some find it very hard to balance their spiritual lives with the rest of their lives. Yes, I admit, these kind of gifts can be a bit time consuming, but it doesn't have to be stressful and it doesn't mean that you cannot have other things to want to accomplish. 
        For example I have many goals for my www.DarkSecretCreations.blogspot.com website, and I also have many goals for this website. The other aspects of my spiritual calling I also have goals set out for, but this is only one fraction of what is going on inside my head. There is many other things that I would like to accomplish. For some reason I have always wanted to be a waitress, and one day I will get a job doing that. I have worked in restaurants, but never as a waitress. I also want to continue my path of being a writer. I have many book ideas floating around my head. They are each screaming to be written. I would like to see a mountain, and visit other places. The list goes on. But recently I had someone mention to me that they think they have to place their spirituality aside, because they want to pursue other things in their life and they cannot find a balance. 
          To people like this let me say that you are not alone. Many people find these issues within their spiritual journeys. This is a common problem for people just starting out, but its not just an issue for beginners. It can be for people who have been on their spiritual journeys for a long time. There was another I came across before who mentioned that she had to place her spiritual work aside because of certain demanding emotional issues in her life. It is fine to take a break, and it you are one, then do what you need to do to get back on track. But I have also found that people who drop their spiritual journeys sometimes find it hard to pick back up. Life is demanding, but you wouldn't find a Christian dropping their religion just because they were having bad times. Its all about faith, and faith is for everyone and not just churches. Faith is within Wicca, Paganism, Nordic Beliefs, Shamanism. Hinduism, Buddhism, Muslim Beliefs, etc. Faith is something that is beautiful, and we all need a reminder to have faith. There has been many times in my spiritual journey when I needed a hard slap in the face from faith, haha. It hurt but I got the hint. So to save you all that slap in the face, try evaluating how much faith you have in your own abilities. It will do wonders for you I promise!!

Dark Secret Creations Shop Updates


         Today I wanted to let all of our lovely regular clients and friends know some important updates for our shop. This also goes out to all of our wonderful new clients who may be passing by. Dwayne and I are currently working with this website to make it better. We want to keep it personal like a blog would be, but professional like an online store would be. This balance is what we are striving to achieve. The reason behind this is because Dark Secret Creations is growing, and we want the best for it. Since people trust in us, we want to give all of you a lovely place to come to browse our shop, read our blogs, or learn about new topics. We are striving to get this done as soon as possible, but quality takes time.
        Why have we decided to do this? Because we believe it would be easier for our clients to not have to come to our website and then be re-directed away to our shop through Etsy. We also do not want to answer to anyone else's personal beliefs about metaphysical items, psychic readings, and spell casts. Cooperations like Etsy and Ebay generally want to stay away from such things. But this isn't about them. It is about us, and what is best for our spiritual work and the shop. You will soon be able to come to this website and read, shop, browse, comment, etc. all in one place!! This is very exciting for us, because we have been trying to find an online shop template or app do use for a while, and finally we have found a nice one. We will also be getting a domain name.
        What else is new? Well I'm glad you asked, haha. We will be having a BUNCH more stuff for the shop. We're talking pendulums, necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets, metaphysical tools, our PDF Books, our Paperback Books, Spell casts, Psychic Readings, Various Healing through Chakra, Reiki, Elemental, Etc. We will also be offering implant removals and personal coding uploads. I know not everyone is aware of what those are, but I assure you they're important to know. Stay tuned for more about that. But the list goes on and on. We are very happy to be offering this all through our one website.
        One aspect we are going to begin soon is teaching sessions. We will be offering classes for various spiritual topics such as pendulums, automatic writing, channeling, meditation, spirit guide contact, etc. This is something we are very happy about and are excited to begin. We have a few people doing our Spiritual Guidance Sessions, and to those of you who know what that is... it will be simular to that but slightly better!! We will be offering Free PDF Books with the classes as well. Yes this is all time consuming for us, but we are working hard at getting this all together as soon as possible. We are working on balancing our finances to keep this a possibility, and are hopeful that all this comes together smoothly. We are happy to answer any questions anyone may have about the new updates. It won't be that big of a change. Shoppers will be able to pay through a secure checkout or have the option of using PayPal checkout. The only thing that will be different is we will not be through Etsy anymore. We are happy to have Etsy as a partner, but we're even more happy to be going our own way.

Stay tuned for more information on the Shop Updates. We will be posting the news as it comes through. <3 <3

Tree Magic Spells

Tree Magic Spells
Trees have been closely associated with magic for centuries. These beautiful members of the earth stand for thousands of years and can offer much to us. They tower above the mortal realm, and as such they are symbols and keepers of unlimited power. Trees offer so much to us, and it's a shame how many forests are being cut down for our own selfish needs. But it is within each of us to keep know knowledge alive. The trees with which you cultivate magical relationships are things to be treasured. Be sure to visit them often, even when you have no magic to preform. When you can arrive at the point when you accept the trees as friends, you have achieved a powerful bond between yourself, the Earth, and even the beyond!!

To Break A Bad Habit
Make a picture of yourself or the bad habit on a leaf or piece of bark. Take it to a tree and bury it at its roots. Place an offering to the tree in the hole with the leaf or bark and cover it up. The offering should be something beneficial to the tree. Think about some natural fertilizers like fruit and vegetable extras or even a stone. Pour some water onto the spot and leave it to begin to manifest. 

To Regain Lost Energy
Sit with your back pressed against the tree trunk and let the tree's limitless energy flow into you. This is extremely good if you have been walking or hiking for long distances or if you feel a bit sick. This is also a wonderful tip to help boost immune systems. 

To Divine The Future
Lay under a leafy tree and relax while gazing up into the ever shifting canopy of green above you. Watch the random patterns forming by the win's gentle lifting and pushing of the leaves. This should drowse you to a state where you open up psychically and receive messages concerning questions you have. 

A Tree Love Spell
On a small leaf make an image of yourself. This could be your name or a symbol relating to you. On another make an image of the type of person you wish to meet. Again this could be traits you're looking for in someone else or the symbols associating with what you want. Traditionally this spell requires you to take a green thread and sea the two leaves together so the images are facing one another. However, I feel this is unnecessary as long as you keep the leaves touching one another. Next you'll want to go to a tree that emits a loving vibration and find a natural crevice or hole in the tree, but do not make one!! If no crevices are available, perhaps the place where a branch is joined to the trunk can be used, as long as it's secure. Lodge the leaves firmly into the crevice and say the following as you do.

Tree of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.
Grant me the love that I desire.

Bury an offering at the base of the tree. The offering should be something beneficial to the tree. Think about some natural fertilizers like fruit and vegetable extras or even a stone. Pour some water onto the spot and leave it to begin to manifest.

Ocean Spells

        Ocean Spells

        The Ocean carries a lot of power, and many spells can be done on the Ocean. Here are some basics on doing Ocean Spells. 
        It will be important to go at around sunset or at night. During the day you may find more people on the beach as well as draw attention to yourself. Depending upon the size of your spell or ritual, that is something which you do not want to do. You may even think about choosing a night when it is cloudy or a bit cooler. Chances are not as many people will be out roaming the beaches. Basically what you want to do is be secluded as possible, but be sure that you're safe. Do not go alone!! In these times on Earth you never know, so it's always safer to bring a friend and let someone else know where you and your friend will be. This goes for people of all ages. 
       You will also want to check the tides before leaving your home. Traditionally spells of constructive nature, such as love, healing, money, psychic awareness, travel, courage, protection, etc., are performed when the tide is flowing from low to high. Spells which are aimed at destroying disease, bad habits, obsessions, and so on are better with the ebbing tide, which is high to low. But as for me and my own personal practices, I do not see why following rules such as those would completely hinder a spell. Sure, they will aid your spell. But if the only time you can be at the beach is around the wrong tide, do not worry. Do your spell and release your worries. 
        I also think its important to not bring too many items with you. Some witches will haul cauldrons, incense burners, knives, special cups, bottles of wine, food, napkins, books, recorders, cameras, cords, swords, herbs, stones, shells, and whatever else to the beach with them. I think you get the hint... Many times less is better. This is because being outside doing spells brings you closer to nature and the elements. The elements are around you, and ultimately that is all you need. It will also be best to wear something comfortable. You do not need to go out looking beautifully decked in full makeup or anything like that. Men will understand! Go as you are, natural is best!! 
       Before we get into any spells I also want to remind everyone that simple is best. You don't need a bunch of people dancing around a large fire near the roaring ocean or anything like that. If you do have a ritual already prepared, know what you want to say, know how you're going to do it, and keep it inspirational and flowing. Nature magic doesn't need a bunch of beautifully poetic chants and spells to recite. It should be natural and flow with ease. It is also best to respect the earth. No littering. Whatever you bring with you, take with you too!! Be sure to soak in the moment and enjoy it.

Ocean Magic Chant

Here between the land and sea, 
Where powers reign,
I create my destiny
And all I would attain.
Ancient ones here my call
Grant the power that I have seen
Here between the land and sea
Take me from this mundane world
Connect me with the powerful light
Help me know your mystery
Let my magic live

Afterwards sit in mediation for as long as you want or feel necessary.

Connection & Healing Ocean Magic

Go to the beach when its not crowded. The more secluded the better. Take off your footwear, and push your feet into the sand. Feel the grains beneath your feet. Walk  to the water, and feel its cool  touch caressing your feet. Feel the water, and know that it is welcoming you into its watery realm. If possible lay down on the sand and use your senses to really feel, see, smell, and experience everything. Feel in tune with the world around you, and let your mind wander. If you want you can meditate or simply lay there taking in the moment. This is best done at night time, but it can be done during the day. Basically what you're doing is connecting your body with the earth, and since you're near the ocean and the wind is all around you as well as the fiery stars above you will be surrounded by all the elements. This is one of the best ways to feel connection and to experience healing. The elements will draw out all negativity from you. 

 Symbol Ocean Magic

Basically in this one you will be going up close to the waves where the sand is wet. This should be done safely, but fast. Take a piece of driftwood, stone, or shell and draw a symbol of your choice for whatever you want to manifest into your life. This could be a rune symbol, a heart for love, a dollar sign for money, etc. The possibilities in this are truly endless. You can even write out the word or phrase or even your name, After its done step back and watch as the Ocean comes up to take away your writings and drawings. This is the Ocean's way of taking your intention and unleashing its power into the Universe. 

Sea Gems Stone, Driftwood, & Shell Ocean Magic

As you're walking the beach pay attention to any shells, driftwood, or stones that may catch your eye. If you see one that calls to you, pick it up and take it with you as a good luck charm. However, you can also go to the edge of the beach and pick a piece of wood, stone, or shell and hold it in your hands. Release all your energy and intention of whatever it is you want to manifest into that Sea Gem. After you are finished, throw it back into the Ocean and your spell or manifestation will be released and come into being.

I want to remind everyone that when doing spells please take into consideration the feelings of others. It is never advisable to cast a spell on someone who you don't have permission from. This will end up messing things up, and even if your spell does work... it will eventually do the opposite. Such as a love spell on someone you like. This is going against their free will, and even if the spell does make them attracted to you for a while... it will eventually fade and make things worse. Think about the wiccan law "ye harm none." Going against someone's free will is ultimately harming them. I know you will find many other witches online that say this is okay, but please do not trust them. So happy casting, and be sure your casting is done either on yourself or someone you have permission from. Never on anyone unsuspecting. 

Remember the law of three. Whatever you give out, you get back times three!!
3x3
You hold the fate of your own Karma...

Happy Casting!!

Random Chatting With Melody

        Above you will see a video that I recently uploaded. I am discussing recent events in my life, and basically its all random stuff. But I wanted to do this to update all of you on what I've been doing and how life is going. I also do this for my clients because they will be able to see me as I truly am. But since I shot this video some more things have unraveled, and I find it fun looking back figuring out which parts fit into which scenario. Life is funny like that isn't it.
        Well Dwayne and I have been having car trouble. Since the beginning of August 2015 (and right now it's October 4th) we had a coolant leak and couldn't find out where it was coming from. Now if you know us, you will understand that we don't go very far when we leave and having the newest best items is not important to us. The basics are fine. So as long as we can either walk or get a ride to the store it was fine, and we were not going to corrupt our manifestations by worrying about a material possession. However, our physical selves did have moments when we wanted to hurry and fix it, but we knew that it required patience and balance. So we went with the flow. We know now that it was all about a time of cleansing and self exploration. Through us not having our car running, we were able to place a lot more of our attention on our shop, our spirituality, our spiritual work, and our websites. We were able to progress more spiritually because we had the time to put into meditation, channeling, etc. Now that I look back I wouldn't have changed that for anything.
        Now up until recently the car has been driving around town. We are happy about this, because let's face it... bugging people for rides is rather annoying. But the coolant leak is for the most part fixed, and the culprit... the radiator cap. Now all of you out there who know stuff about cars do not laugh at us. LOL We didn't even think to check that dang cap!! But it is a laughing matter for us, because that normally would be one of the first things you would check. But noo we didn't, and Dwayne and I personally feel this has something to do with divine intervention through our Spirit Guides and the higher realms we connect with. We needed some more time to focus on things that actually mattered, and they made sure it happened. Well now we realize that the battery needs to be replaced. Its been in there for 3 or 4 years so it's about time. We have not got the car inspected to make sure its 100%, but it seems fine so far. Send us blessings!! haha!!
        Anyway, lately we have been working on our shops more and trying to progress it to be even better. We have also been trying to progress even farther with our spiritual mission through our spirituality. For us spirituality and our daily life goes hand in hand, and one cannot be without the other. As I type this we are each on a laptops working. So this is how much of our time and effort we put in to our shop and our spiritual life. We want to spread the light of truth and happiness to all through love, compassion, and spiritual progression. If you are one of our regular clients you probably know that we try our best to go above and beyond.

        These are two of the little reasons why I don't mind being home. The black one is names Hershey and the other is Gizmo. They do assist us with some of our spiritual missions such as working with lost spirits. These two cats are AWESOME at spotting out a new spirit and reacting when one needs our help. It is our belief that they were placed into our life for a purpose, other then being our cute little babies.
        Yes working with lost spirits is something we do. The more known term is spirit keeping, but I don't like that phrase. Keeping sounds like it is a hobby, and this is not a hobby and these spirits are not old coins we want to sell one day. They are a part of our spirit family, and we are accepting new ones who need our help daily. I cannot even name how many spirits we have around here, but they are a part of our lives on a daily basis. For those of you who are afraid of ghosts, simply speak with us and we can help. We'd be happy to.
        But spirit work is a part of the reason why we had that life transition not too long ago. We had to progress so we could help them more. Yes some of them are a bit lower on the energy vibrational rank, but that doesn't mean that they have to remain low. We work with them and try to get them to a place where they are comfortable and can do the things they wish, and at that point it is their choice when they are ready to progress into the next level of existence. But we have had some that have chosen to stay and act like protectors and help us on our mission to save other lost spirits. They are no different from us who are alive. We are one and the same, and that is the message I want to get out. I've dealt with this since I was a child, and it is a true blessing of a gift. Thank you for reading and don't forget to bookmark this page or follow me on blogger so you can get the up to date news on me and my shop. If I mentioned anything you have more questions about or want to learn more about please do not hesitate to ask.

My Rainy Day Experience

        Hello!! This is going to be a very random post. But I wanted to share with everyone the picture to the left. This is of Rehoboth Beach Delaware on September 29, 2015. My husband Dwayne, my cousin Xander, and I went to this coastal town to walk the boardwalk. We went inside I small little shop which had a lot of metaphysical items in there. They had a bunch of beautiful stone beads and trinkets for alter tables and even some jewelry. We enjoyed the shop, even though it was a bit pricey and the owner was a bit of a witchy grouch of a man, haha. But we found a few odds and ends, two of which being Rainbow Ore raw unpolished stones. They were so amazing, and I could not pass them up. Well it was only until we were about to check out when we realized it was pouring outside. This picture merely shows a small portion of what it looked like. As we began to exit the shop we placed out phones in a bag and headed out into the rain. Yeah... sure... we could have stayed inside and waited out the rain, but what's the fun in that!!  As we walked as rained unleashed from the threateningly grey clouds above we noticed everyone was shielding themselves from the rain. Yeah, we were completely soaked from head to toe. Each step made a squish  squish. But the point in me sharing this is the reason why we decided to step out into that rain.
        Dwayne and I had been having a rough few days, and Xander had been having some personal issues with close family. So we each needed a nice spiritual cleansing, and I believe each of our spirit guides placed us there at that moment to experience what we did. At first it was awkward, but it didn't take long before we were casually walking down the sidewalk stepping through large puddles as people laughed and stared us down like we were crazy. We went down some small lanes and enjoyed the wet autumn flowers which were even more aeromatic in the rain. It was a cool rain, but wasn't anything too bad. It was very refreshing, not just for our skin, but for our souls as well.
        Here you will see me looking wild eyed, haha. In this photo the rain had literally just stopped, and we were at the bathrooms getting some paper towels so we could take some photos. This was a moment which we had to document, because of the energy it gave us. That rain on that day touched more then mere flesh. It touched something deep down, and showed me what it truly means to be a human. It showed me how people long ago used to power through whatever they had to do no matter what the obstacle in front of them. Above all it showed me how simple it is to find peace in your life, if only you're willing to step out and take that leap away from the safe shelter. To me, this is what it means to be Wiccan. Living among the elements, and not worrying if you look beautiful. Not worrying if the rain will smudge off your makeup (mask). Not worrying if you look like a complete nutcase.
        To me that day showed a reality that we can each choose to live in. So many people now days want to stay where it is safe from people's judgement. People would rather hide rather than to have a little fun. When will our insecurities stop? When will us humans stop worrying what other people think, and when will we be able to get back to purely loving ourselves, and others around us. This is the symbolic steps we took that day in the rain, and those drops of aqua taught me a lesson. Embrace the elements, embrace my true calling, bring my Wiccan beliefs into everything I do, and above all follow my heart no matter what.

FOLLOW YOUR HEART

Cosmic Blessings,
Melody
