Bright tidings wayfaring souls! If you're reading this, thank you! Allow me to introduce myself and let you know what you can expect from me here on the Wayfaring Witch Blog.
I'm Allorah Rayne. Operator and creative mastermind. In this post I introduce you to me as a writer, tell you about the magick you can expect to find here, and let you in on a little secret to finding your soul purpose.
I have been writing since I was a child, filling journal after journal. Admittedly, I am a more articulate writer than I am a speaker. I'm not a bad speaker but I'm definitely less clumsy with my words when I put pen to paper, or, rather, fingers to keyboard. Mitchell Osborne said that I remind him of a flamingo because I'm elegant yet awkward. I couldn't agree more! But when I write, that flamingo transforms into a swan full of grace and poise.
Writing has always been a form of catharsis for me whether kept in a private notebook or on display for the world in a blog. Something magickal happens when I empty my mind and just let the words flow. Granted, I get writer's block like everyone else but it's usually because I'm overthinking (imagine that from a Virgo!). Currently, I have 2 books (one fiction and one non-fiction) in the works and dream of being a published author sometime before I leave this world for the next.
So what can you expect to find on the Wayfaring Witch Blog? For starters, consistent content. You can expect a new blog post from me each Monday. I am going to use this creative writing space to share witchy tips and how to's, tarot ruminations and how to's, history and anthropology as related to spirituality, and my perspective on current trends and happenings in the world of magick and witchcraft. I'm really excited to be able to write in a public forum again. My hope is that my writing is that you will be entertained by my sass, gaining some insight and knowledge you never had before, and interacting with me through the blog to learn and grow from one another.
The creation of this site and this blog is an experience in dream fulfillment. I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that these pursuits are what I'm meant to be doing with my life because they are my passions. They leave my soul singing and my cup running over. It's kinda funny how the universe works. My word for 2019 has been, and is, purpose. Purpose has manifested in my life this year in gigantic ways. The biggest lesson I've learned in 2019 so far is that, if you have a passion - a desire to achieve something that burns in your soul like a raging fire - then don't waste one damn minute thinking about whether you should go for it! Our passions serve as our soul's compass. They tell us where we are needed most in this world and guide us towards our greater purpose. I'll leave you with one piece of advice:
If you're searching for your soul's purpose, start with your passion.
Thanks for hanging with me and be on the lookout next Monday for a new post!
