A Little Backtracking

Posted in Tarot Decks and Workingd with tags , , , , , , on 04/12/2022 by Keona-Mlh

As I was going through my draws, mind you I only drew 4 cards so far, I felt unsatisfied. So I am going to modify what I do and how I go about it.

The whole point of learning the Tarot deeper, is to build a stronger connection of the cards and what they represent and present to me. Of course they have universal correspondences but you aren’t going to receive the same reading with the same cards from different people.

I am still going to go about shuffling them and just breathing my energy into the cards and relax while I shuffle them. I want my energy to be imbued in these cards since these are going to be my personal cards.

I am going to draw two like I have been. Write about what they mean from research, and then what I see and how I interpret the cards. Then what I think the two are trying to tell me. After that I am going to mediate on each card and just write what I see. What I feel. Carry the card with me. If I can spend a good week with both cards I feel that should be enough so when I start to really get into doing spreads I will be very comfortable in reading for myself. And applying the concepts to myself.

That means I should be spending a few months doing this and I am totally fine with that. I will still be purchasing other cards and going through them and working with oracle decks and reading for people during this time. Incorporating them into my workings and for meditation and devotionals.

I’m liking this plan a lot better. What do you do when working with a new deck?

Workings and Wakings: Is there a difference?

Posted in Rituals and Workings with tags , , , , , on 04/02/2018 by Keona-Mlh

Over the past few years I have just personally noticed that people say that they don’t do path workings or walkings , and that they always just work with their Deity of choice. And it got me thinking, what is the real difference? Is there a difference? Or is this just word wording that we use just for the fuck of it?

So this is what Working with a Deity and Walking with a Deity means to me. *MY OPINION SO DON’T GET YOUR DAMN PANTIES IN A BUNCH*

Working with a Deity is what I do on a daily basis with the House of Baal. It is what I do when I connect with my Patron and Matron, when I work with other Deity’s and during rituals/rites. It is what I do when I meditate to them, when I celebrate them.

When I walk with them, I get a deeper connection to them,  with them, and definitely for them. I have spent a month walking with Hecate, going through shadow working with her, and really learning myself. I have done walkings with the House of Baal for 30 days in learning more and more about the Elder Daemons and how I can connect to them and how we work together. I have spent 4 years, soon to be 5, walking with the Goetia Demons. Every time I walk with them, I learn something new, I am exposed to new methods, I have a break through, or I am broken down for better understanding. I will be doing a 2 month Walking with my Mother, Lilith later on this year as well.

I feel both are very important when you are on a spiritual path and when you worship to, work with, pay homage to, or whatever you want to call it that you do in interacting with your Pantheon; walking with them will give you a greater insight into the relationship that you share with them. Without it I feel that you are missing a key component that can help improve your workings as an individual and a group if you do majority of your workings with your coven or group of people or friends.

Doing both, or one or the other, is good. I just suggest if you haven’t done a long working with one Deity that maybe you try it out and see how you like it. If you don’t care for it, no harm no fowl. Just continue what you are doing.

It never hurts to try new things.
