We have come off-schedule a bit because I have been unable to contact Ashleigh either here or on FB, and Kelly offered to go this week if this was the case. I will re-shuffle the schedule in the sticky and go on to the next person in the list next.

Soul Sister of the Week this week beginning April 30th is Kelly (kaydee78)!

Kelly, here is the schedule for what you should post each day, but you can be flexible, and skip days, or post a few all on one day, whatever works for you.

This game works best if everyone asks the Soul Sister of the Week some questions for Friday! And you girls are rocking this up to now in a way I've never seen before on ANY board! You can ask the same questions for every lady and just copy and paste them, or think up questions when you've read a few of their posts. You can ask one question or ten! All entirely up to you.

Kelly, if there are any questions put to you that you don't feel comfortable with, obviously you need not answer, perhaps just say so on the thread or PM the member to let them know you weren't just ignoring them.

I will do a card draw and short angel message later in the week for the area of life you want guidance on. Other members who also read or draw cards are welcome to do the same.


MONDAY INTRODUCTIONS - An introduction in your own words - whatever you want to say about your life story. You should also say what area of your life you'd currently like guidance on here.

TUESDAY PATHWAYS - Your path and beliefs - copy & paste the questionnaire and answer as many of the questions as you're comfortable with and are relevant to you. Feel free to delete any which are not.


What faith, religion or path did you grow up with? What faith, religion or path do you identify with now? Or are you still seeking?

If different, what led you to your new path? If still seeking, what are you currently exploring?

What do you most enjoy about your current path?

If you identify with a faith or religion at present, is there anything in it you donít agree with?

What spiritual activities do you do the most often?

What would you say your three core beliefs or values are?

Do you believe in:

Angels

Devil

Heaven

Hell

God/Source

Saints/Ascended Masters

Past lives/Reincarnation

Prayer

Magick

Cosmic ordering/The Law of Attraction


PICTURE WEDNESDAY - You can share ten pictures of your choice, of your family, home, crafts, etc; photography you have created; or picture quotes, cartoons and other pictures from the internet which represent you in some way (if you have Facebook you probably already have a ton!).

THURSDAY SHOWCASE -
EITHER showcase your spiritual or creative skills or knowledge. Share a poem, story, piece of artwork, photography or craft you have created. You could share a channelling, piece of automatic writing, or pull oracle or tarot cards, runes or similar for a few members who've asked you questions. You could write a short piece on something spiritual or paranormal to share your knowledge.

OR showcase your newest spiritual tools, crystals, books, whatever you have bought most recently to further your spiritual development - or your wish list using pictures from the internet!

QUESTION FRIDAY - Answer questions from the other members.

So excited it is my turn!!!!

Okay an introduction to me, where do I even start!!!

I am the middle child,with an older and younger brother; but I was raised as the eldest. My older brother is my full blood brother but he was put up for adoption when he was born and didn't come back into our lives until he was 21 (I was 16). I think in a way this has shaped who I am, I always had a sense there was something my father wanted from me that I never quite gave him and I am guessing it was simple that I wasn't my brother. That said I had a good upbringing. My parents are kind generous people and my childhood was a happy one. The only cloud over it was my weight. I have always been big and while we ate really well we ate big meals. My weight still plagues me to this day, although this is the year I am going to win that battle.

When I was younger I always wanted to be something important and powerful like a lawyer or a politician and while that would still be good now my aim in life is to be a good wife and mother and good person. If I can do all of that I will leave more of a positive legacy than being someone powerful. I am a leader, an organiser and love working with young people. When my children are older I am hoping I can find myself a job that will fit in with those skills.

I live on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia which is just gorgeous. Our town is small and while living in a small town can be like living in a fish bowl, it also means everyone knows and looks out for everyone and I will take that any day over living somewhere where noone knows me.

I am four and a half years older than my husband and we met through my work. I had actually known him and was friends with his mother when suddenly one day he looked at me and I thought my god he is HOT!!! His mother thought it was wonderful until I was still around six months later and she literally told me she hadn't planned on me being around so long. The only thing I will say about her is that she is literally psychiotic, has munchenhausen by proxy (her children) and is not someone I spend any time with voluntarily.

Daniel and I dated for six months before I moved over here to see whether our relationship was going anywhere although I knew I wanted to marry him, I just had to wait until he realised it too. Three years later we were married on the cliff tops down here with an old fashioned country reception at the Town Hall. Eighteen months later we welcome our beautiful daughter Charlotte into our home and then 22 months after that our gorgeous son Xavier. We are now trying to bring our third baby over from the other side. I love many things reading and writing at the top of the list. I adore cooking and socialising with friends and family makes me very happy.

From a spiritual point of view nothing has ever quite felt right. I really want to be a part of the community that comes with mainstream religion but the teachings never felt right to me. Through reading and researching my heart tells me I am a Wiccan and it is now that I am starting to openly follow that path. I am scared of what sort of reaction I will get in a small town, especially if I involve my children, but I am just going to take it one step at a time and see how I go.

What would I like guidance on? At the moment I am about to launch a career as an Undercover Wear (clothing) consultant. Is this the right thing to do? Some extra money coming into our home would be most useful but heading out to work outside the home is complicated.

What faith, religion or path did you grow up with?What faith, religion or path do you identify with now? Or are you still seeking?

I was christened Uniting Church but we had no religious upbringing at all. My dad is Catholic and he and my mum were treated very poorly by the local church when mum fell pregnant with my brother so he swore he would never set foot in there again. As for now I identify with being Wiccan.

If different, what led you to your new path? If still seeking, what are you currently exploring? A need to find a name for my beliefs and a dislike for the "rules" associated with mainstream religion sent me looking for something else. After doing many years of study and research I find that I am most closely aligned with the Wiccan philosophy. Now I would just like to do further research into the different branches and see what suits me!

What do you most enjoy about your current path?
The snese that the whole world is my church and the ceremony and "magic" of it all. I love feeling constantly connected to the divine in way sbig and small.

If you identify with a faith or religion at present, is there anything in it you don’t agree with?
Nope I pretty much agree with evrything.

What spiritual activities do you do the most often?
Meditate, and I have just begun making offerings every morning to various dieties aligned with the day.

What would you say your three core beliefs or values are?
Balance - light and dark, day and night, male and female
Peace - both inner and world
The wiccan rede "..An it harm none do what you will"

Do you believe in:

Angels - Absolutely

Devil - Not in the sense he is taught in Christianity

Heaven - Summerland but yes

Hell - No

God/Source - Source for sure

Saints/Ascended Masters - Yes to an extent

Past lives/Reincarnation - Absolutely I was a witch and a nun both in the same life!!

Prayer - Absolutely

Magick - For sure

Cosmic ordering/The Law of Attraction - Yes

Questions for Friday...

2. What book has meant a lot to you because it opened your eyes to something new that you'd never thought of before?
3. Song that speaks to your soul?
4. One thing you'd want with you if stuck on a deserted island.

I love your positivity - "this will be the year that changes!" With an attitude like that, it will!!!

What an interesting background you have had! Loving reading this. I'll be back tomorrow with some questions for Friday.

I'm a bit behind on the card draws / mini-readings - I still have Tiff's and Leslie's to do - hopefully will mop them all up including yours when I get round to doing the ascended masters draws.

First of all, HOORAY for your transformation! I am so inspired by you!!!! What dedication that takes!

You are lovely and your kids are stunners!

Do you have or have you ever had a spiritual vision of yourself?

I'll explain that a bit, when I first found my path and began meditating, I had this vision of myself, sitting in lotus position, bathed in golden and white light with purple lotus flowers floating out of my chakras. I could not explain it then and can't now, but it's my spiritual vision.

What is your wildest dream (even if you feel embarrassed by it)?

What is the best part of your day?

What is your very favorite indulgence in life?

Your favorite meal?

If you could have your dream vacation, what would that look like to you?

Favorite book?

And your favorite color?

And, I'm back with more!

Favorite band/singer?

When do you feel that you are at your best? for some it's in social situations, or under pressure, or.....

Do you feel that you have a gift in this life? And if so, what do you feel that is?

I wasn't sure what to share with you all for my creative Thursday but I have been doing some meditations. This is one I did working with Hecate

I am standing at my tree waiting for Hecate to come and meet me. She arrives and I can not see her face, she is wearing a black cloak with the hood up. When she removes her hood, she is beautiful, ancient and so wise. Her hair is silver and her eyes are a crustal blue. She smiles gently and says "I have been waiting for you child." She takes my hand and we move into the roots of the tree. We are spiraling down , around and around, walking on a dark path. Even though I cannot see far in front of me Hecate has a torch and she walks beside me. We do not speak . As I move downwards I can feel all sense of confusion lifting, rising up out of me like a cloud. We get to the end of the path and Hecate holds the torch up high and illuminates a crossroads. She smiles and tells me the path we have come on is my past and the two in front of me represent my future. The choice is mine, which one I wish to take. She moves behind me and leaves me to look at them.

Both paths are illuminated by fine sparkles, one is red the other white. I am drawn to the red one, but when I step onto it it is quite hot under my feet. I step back off and look at Hecate. She smiles and nods, "That path is beautiful but there will be heat on it, should you chose to go that way". I look at the white path and step out on to it, it is like stepping onto the softest carpet. It is so soft on my feet but I feel empty inside. I step back to the Crossroads. Again Hecate steps up to me and says "That is the comfortable path, but on it you will be empty."
"Which one do I chose?"
"That is up to you, I can only show you the choices I can not make them for you."
"But what if I chose wrong?"
"You won't neither choice is wrong they are both fulfilling futures, just different. Your choice is between daring to be different and taking a little "heat" and being comfortable and happy but dealing with some emptiness along the way."
"Do I have to decide right now?"
"No and you can always come back to the crossroads and change your mind."
I sit down and think, I empty my mind out of any thoughts and send out a trial of feeling to the 2 paths. The first makes me tingle and zing, the second feels just nice.
"Can you come with me once I chose a path."
"Whichever path you chose will be yours but I can be there with you. Just remember this journey is yours alone to make."
I sit and think some more and then decide. I step out on to the red path and again the ground is hot, but I keep walking. The further down it I get the easier it is to walk on. It's never quite comfortable but it is bareable. We move upwards now, up and up and up. The closer to the top we get the lighter it becomes and finally we are back standing in front of my tree. I thank Hecate for her help and give her a single black stone I had picked up on the journey down. She smiles again and says "Welcome back. Now go and live your true life."
