The Divine Driver, our fellow friend, and I continued to drink in the Magickal Energy of New Hope, Pennsylvania, and we took a short break from going in to stores, and either browsing, buying or both, and took a look at the ducks and geese that were swimming and eating the bird feed that was left over from others feeding them.

We then went to a place that I have always wanted to go into, but never did before: Celt-Iberia Traders, featuring “The Art and Craft of Ireland and Spain.”

I have always been intrigued by this store, and always wanted to go in there, and now, not only did my two fellow Hispanic Witches and I do so, but I even purchased two items (gifts for another, by the way).

It was lovely browsing at the different items.  I must admit, being the Winter Baby that I AM, I kept looking longingly at the Merino Wool scarves and shawls, knowing that wearing them now would be akin to sitting on top of a kiln!  For some of you that get so cold so easily, maybe not, but I was sweating just looking at them!

Feel free to visit their Website http://www.celtiberiatraders.com

Then, we walked around and eventually found our way to this mini mall, that no longer had a store from which I had purchased a pair of “man-watcher” sunglasses.  They are also known as “spyware” eyeglasses, because the let the wearer know who is behind him or her.

I like them, because I can see a nice male butt as I keep it moving!  Ha!

We, of course, went to Mystickal Times where I could purchase some of their brand of incense, as well as some Wildberry brand “Isis” incense.

New to Mystickal Times were swords!  I must admit, I was a bit surprised because, first, they had not had swords there in all the years I went to that store, and second, they were a bit too close to the door, and in front of the counter.  There were several that drew me; one I would swear was a replica of Excalibur, and one had a crown-like orb in gold and blue on the hilt.  That one certainly drew me!

It was nice to be back.  I have learned a lot from Eric, one of the owners.  When he speaks, I listen!

Of course, at this point, the day was beginning to wind down, and we knew that the time was approaching to start heading back home.

And how could I forget one of my other favorite places to visit in New Hope: The Last Temptation.

I had my usual Café Olé (half coffee, half cream [or, in this case, half-an-half]), some sugar, and some cinnamon.  Uber DELICIOSO!!

And, I reminded my two fellow Hispanic Witches that there is a seating area upstairs, so we could sit and relax.  I immediately claimed the rocking chair, as I had not sat in a rocking chair in a long time, and took an opportunity to be photographed, again.

By the way, The Last Temptation no longer has Café Olé on the menu, but they shall happily make it for you.  Just remember, half of the cup is filled with coffee, the other half with cream (or, in their case, half-an-half).

Incidentally, I have had an Instagram account for a few months.  As such, I post photographs, from time to time, but not that often.

Although I love sweet treats, I did not feel inclined to eat any of the sweet treats, although one of my fellow Hispanic Witches devoured the dark chocolate brownie.  Personally, I can take or leave chocolate, but even I eyed this one with a great deal of interest.  For the record, there were two of them, but I digress.

Interestingly enough, there were a few other places that we checked out.  One of them specialized in gifts for men (given the merchandise, I would say heterosexual men).  Mr. Prosperity found a beautiful green candle, shaped like a $100 bill bundle.  Ironically, Mr. Prosperity did not spot it first, it was one of his fellow Hispanic Witches.

Nonetheless, once spotted, Mr. Prosperity made sure to purchase it.  The merchant wanted to make sure I knew that it was a candle, and I assured him that I saw the wick.

I have not decided what to do with it, yet, but I look forward to using it when the time is right.

Our last meal of the evening was at Fran’s Pub, although we opted for pizza.  In addition, to pizza, I also ate one of my favorite salads: mozzarella caprese.  Theirs was molto bene!!

I had a great time at Fran’s Pub, and although I rarely drink alcohol, there was a blue drink, appropriately called a “Blue Lagoon,” that intrigued me.

You can find out more about Fran’s Pub by visiting http://franspub.net and you can text FRANSPUB to 91944 to receive deals on “food & drinks & more!”

Of course, these last few months, I have been purchasing more journals and blank books, than actual books, and I happen to love Farley’s Bookshop.  I often state, both online and off, the importance of supporting one’s independent booksellers.

Every single time I have visited Farley’s Bookshop, I have found some unique journals.  This time was no different, although this time I purchased a set of three writer’s notebooks: one ruled, one blank, and one graphed.  I look forward to using them, also when the time is right.

Feel free to visit Farley’s Bookshop http://www.farleysbookshop.com

This Re-Minds me not only how much I love Pennsylvania, but how much richer, happier and more fulfilling my life is.  Indeed, I could not have asked for such a lovely, perfect, and Healing day for all of us.

I cannot wait to return.  In fact, I think it is safe to say I AM already planning the day!

Thank you, and good night.NEWHOPE_PA002.27220955_std

As I wrote yesterday, after we began walking from The Raven New Hope (and passing by without stopping at the New Hope Public Library’s book sale, le sigh), we went to the main part of New Hope and deferred to one of my fellow Hispanic Witches on wanting to go shopping, ASAP.

We first walked into Savioni, which was great for all of us to expand our Prosperity Consciousness.  This is truly, one of New Hope’s high-end stores.  I saw shirts that were priced from $58 to $175, and shoes and boots that were priced at $850 and up.

It proved a bit overwhelming for one of my fellow Hispanic Witches, who has recently forgotten his need/desire to ongoingly expand his Prosperity Consciousness.  Of course, I, as “Mr. Prosperity” have been Re-Minding him to ongoingly use the Sacred Tools and Metaphysical Methods that bring him ever-increasing Financial Supply, but I digress.

After that, we went to the New Hope Apparel Company (which does not have a Website, but it does have a Facebook page), and purchased a few things.  I found a beautiful black and heather gray hooded pullover from, of all places, Brooklyn Xpress (“Mr. New York” would be so proud of me!), and was amazed at the discount.

I also found a PD&C burgundy v-neck shirt (It took me a while, but I finally found out that PD&C stands for “Paper, Denim & Cloth; you can visit their Website at http://paperdenimandcloth.com), which is a light-weight fabric, perfect for wearing during warm months.

From there, we went to a place that none of us had ever seen before in our Divine Day Trips to New Hope: New Hope Funky Stuff.  The store is truly cool, and has a wonderful variety of merchandise from jewelry to Affirmation stones, to incense, to the owner’s personal brand of essential oil blend personal misters and room sprays.

The Goddess led me to “Clear the Air,” which is made with Orange, Cinnamon Leaf and Clove.  Not only can this one clear the air of negative energy, but it can also clear the way for Prosperity, as all of these essences have been used, Magickally, to manifest Prosperity and Financial Supply.

They even have VINYL records.  I love it!  I think Barnes & Noble Booksellers got the idea from her!

You can visit the store’s Website at http://www.newhopefunkystuff.com and you can also contact the lovely and Divine owner, Ms. Jessica Hammer, by Emailing her at newhopefunkystuf@aol.com.  If you do, let her know that you found out about her store from Robert Alvarez, the Psychic Witch.  If she does not remember offhand, tell her that I was Goddess Guided to give her my Sunstone and Freshwater Pearl pendant.

After that, it was time to stock up on Metaphysical Supplies.

I must say, I found it interesting that, in spite of leading a Goddess Course, I kept feeling led to purchase Magickal Supplies that correspond to Masculine Energies; specifically, Fire (candles) and Air (incense).

However, I did purchase a few essential oil blends (or, really, potions) and Crystals.  Well, actually one.  Since Broceliande, the owner of Gypsy Heaven, “The Witch Shop of New Hope,” is, like me, a Divine Child of the Great and Glorious Auset, the Ancient Egyptian Goddess more commonly known as Isis, I knew She would have a perfect gift for me to give my Celestial Mother, the Goddess Who gave Birth to my Soul.

And I found it: a Crystal called the Eye of Isis.  I know nothing about it, and have not found any information about it online, but it looks like a combination of both Snowflake Obsidian and Red Jasper.

Nonetheless, it was perfect for me, and of course, I was happy to see Broceliande.  She has always been one of my favorite people.

Although there are so many of us that feel and know that Auset Is our Celestial Mother, it becomes a family reunion, in a way, anyway,when we see each other.  I have no doubt the same could be said for those of us who are deeply connected to Diana, Brighid, or any other Great and Glorious Goddess.

By all means, visit http://witchshopgypsyheaven.com and if Broceliande is there, let her know that Robert Alvarez, the Psychic Witch from New Jersey told you about Gypsy Heaven, “The Witch Shop of New Hope.”

And now, I need to finish getting ready for my day.  Until tomorrow, when I conclude this three-part blog post.

Thank you, and good day, to all of you!witchshopneonsign

 

thetarotman:

I AM reblogging this for all of us who write, who love to write, who are true writers, and who love collecting and writing in notebooks, journals, and blank books.

Originally posted on Girl, Unoccupied:

I am 27 years old and I own over thirty notebooks. There, I’ve said it – I have a problem. This ‘habit’ has been ongoing since my early twenties, which is when I actually started keeping all the stuff I wrote down (all my embarrassing teenage stuff is gone, in other words).

The main reason I have so many notebooks is because, well, I am a writer. Or I consider myself to be, at heart. I am not alone in my notebook fixation, but having spoken to other writers on the subject, not all of them are as compulsive in their stationary habits as me.

Some writers have only one or two notebooks, or maybe just a few, each one having been filled to the brim before moving on to the next. Some writers make notes and then throw them away, but these are uncommon. Some writers do not make…

Since I began leading my very second, as opposed to my very first Goddess Course, “Goddess to the Next Level…” which began on Monday, March 23, 2015, I have been generally happier.

And I was especially happy that two of the participants of this Goddess Course, and I went to one of my all-time favorite places in Pennsylvania, New Hope, yesterday, Friday, May 22, 2015.

The Divine Driver, who also participated in my very first Goddess Course, “Goddess-Graced Guidance” picked up one of the other participants, and me at 10AM, and from there, we made sure we had everything we needed for the day, took time to go to the bathroom, just in case, then off we went to the gas station so the Divine Driver would have more than enough gasoline in her car for the Divine Day Trip.

The Divine Driver was happy to be Re-Minded how much money she can save on gasoline buying it in New Jersey, as opposed to NYC.  As I AM wont to say (or, in this case, write) the wonders of New Jersey.

After stocking up on gasoline, off we went to go to New Hope, Pennsylvania.

Indeed, there is something utterly Magickal about that place.  There is a Divine, Magickal Energy that makes me happy when I go there, and I have come to love sharing it with people who I love and adore, as well as introducing people who I love and adore to that truly wonderful place.

Of course, it also made me happy to have a Divine Day Trip with two people who are lovely, and Magickal, and, of course, fellow Witches.

And, all of us have Celestial Mothers Who Are Astrologically and Magickally linked to the Moon.  For the Divine Driver, Mother Mary, Who, for many, Is a Goddess, and often depicted with a Crescent Moon either above Her or at Her feet.

For the other “Goddess to the Next Level…” participant, Selene, the Greek Goddess of the Full Moon.

As for yours truly, Auset, the Ancient Egyptian Full Moon Goddess of Magick, Mystery, Wholeness, and Healing, more commonly known as Isis.

Once we arrived in New Hope, our first stop was to find parking.  Every time I have gone to New Hope, at least in the last decade or so, the Divine Drivers always opt for a parking lot, or commercial space reserved for parking.  Since the three of us knew we were going to be there for several hours, we opted for a parking space where we can pay for the day.

It may seem like a lot of money, but $15 to give one (or, in this case, three) Peace of Mind, and not need to keep track of time to go back and put money in the meter really becomes a very good thing.

The entire day, my Mastery in Manifestation was being confirmed and reconfirmed by several, if not many Goddesses.

For example, the parking lot was next to the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad (for more information on this wonderful ride, please visit http://www.newhoperailroad.com).  Why this was so amazing was that, sometime on Thursday, May 21, I searched for 1940s music on Spotify (and many of you know how much I LOVE Spotify!), and as soon as we arrived at this parking lot, right next to the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad, we were listening to music from the 1940s!

I must confess, I think I started to drive my fellow Hispanic Witches crazy with the thought of riding on this train.  Oh, my Goddess!  I so wanted to ride on this train, however, my hunger was getting the best of me.  And the three of us agreed that eating lunch/brunch was the order of the moment.

Although we had already parked the car, we decided to keep it there and walk to The Raven.  The Raven, New Hope, is not only the 2015 Winner of the Bucks County 2015 Best Happenings List, but also the Winner of the Best of LGBT Philly List 2014 for Best Suburban Bar and Best Suburban Restaurant.

I had no idea so many great things were happening for The Raven since my very first visit a few years ago, but was happy that the decor is just as beautiful, and just as lovely as my very first time there.

To find out more about The Raven, New Hope, you can visit http://www.theravennewhope.com

The food was uber delicious!  The Divine Driver treated both the other “Goddess to the Next Level…” participant and me to lunch, and the food was even more fantastic as the first time.  The service was wonderful, too, although we stayed a little too long there.

The Energy was so great, although some in my traveling party felt that the servers were not taking bringing our orders fast enough, although I think I might have been responsible for that, but I digress.

I had a fantastic appetizer of the Paté Maison, which was so incredibly delicious.

Now, as some of you know, I have been on a sodium-and-fluid-reduced regimen for a while now, so I rarely, if ever eat paté, simply because it is super loaded with sodium, and fat, and taste, and trop delicieux!

So, while I was basking and honoring my Inner Goddess with this Sacred Scrumptiousness, the servers were waiting for me to finish, before bringing our table our entrees.

By the time we left, it was already around 3PM, and there were other stops to make.  Alas, because of this, we  I could not avail myself of the New Hope Public Library’s book sale.  Oh, well, next time.

It is hard to believe that I AM already making plans for my return visit.  Although, part of me wants to tell my fellow Hispanic Witches, that this IS happening next time, but that would not be too nice on my part.  I know, I know.  Be nice, Robert, be nice.  Yeah, yeah.

It was a good walk, and although I cannot speak for my fellow Hispanic Witches, I certainly could use the exercise, and my doctors are very happy that I walked so much.

Once we were back in the main part of New Hope, we deferred to one of my traveling companions, because he was on the hunt for a shopping trip!

Alas, before I write about that, and the rest of my wonderful day in New Hope, I need to acknowledge my newest blog followers.  They are: “Roger’s Scribe” and “garyball.”  Thank you, both, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you receive a Divine Abundance of Peace, Health, and Plenty from following “This Is Who I AM.”

And for those of you already following or reading “This Is Who I AM,” thank you for continuing to honor who I AM and what I do.  May you continue to manifest Prosperity, Protection, and Peace; Love, Light, and Life; Honor, Wholeness, and Healing.

Thank you, and until tomorrow’s Part II, good night!newhopeivylandrailroad

Last month, I canceled two Events because the number of pre-registered participants was below my minimum acceptable requirements regarding participants.  Incidentally, my minimum acceptable requirement for participants in any of my Events is five.

I have often said that I do not want bodies in my Metaphysical Classes, my Readings (private or at public venues), my Energy Healing Treatments, etc.

However, what I feel Divinely Guided to begin to state more frequently, is that I AM only interested in having clients, students, and friends who are Loving, Spiritual and Prosperous, and who are willing to go deep within themselves and see if there is anything they are radiating or emanating that is preventing them from having lives Divinely Abundant with Money, Gifts, Love, Honor, and Joy.

In addition, I AM crystal clear that there is a great deal of poverty consciousness in the mentality of “some money is better than none.”  Also, if I do not honor what I do, then how can I expect any one else to do so?

And finally, I have since learned that the canceling of those Events were Blessings in disguise.  Last Friday, May 1, 2015, which was the date of a “Divine Prosperity Event,” was such a lovely and relaxing day for me.  It also made something possible, that could not have happened if I had, indeed, led a “Divine Prosperity Event.”

And tonight, which was going to be the date of a “Divine Love Healing Event,” I AM going to a part.  AT A COUNTRY CLUB!  I have never been to a country club before, and have no doubt that being there is going to expand my Prosperity Consciousness in a very big way.

On a personal note, I love having clients that honor their Intuition.

I have a semi-regular client who has been availing herself of my Psychic Services for about two decades.

I have been a full-time Psychic, I have been a part-time Psychic with a part-time position of employment, I have been a part-time Psychic with a full-time position of employment, and yet, every single time this client has been Divinely Guided to contact me, her Intuition has been right on the mark!

She is the only client that, in roughly twenty-five years of being a professional Psychic, has ever been able to have a Reading with me the same day.  In fact, she is the only one that has had that experience consistently.

And, because this client is not a new client, she knows all too well how fast I book up.  My long-time and regular clients know, that if they do not schedule the appointment they want, when it is available, then they run the risk of it being unavailable.

The client with whom I AM meeting tomorrow, Saturday, May 9, 2015.  She has been availing herself of my Psychic Services since September, 2001, and she had once asked me to send her a text message listing the dates that I had available.

Roughly three weeks later, she gets back to me and asks for a specific date.  I told her that date was no longer available.  She asked for another date, and that one was no longer available.  I then told her I would send her a new text message with the dates that I was currently available.  I asked her to confirm she received it, and she did.  I asked her which date worked best for her, and she stated she would get back to me later.

I felt Divinely Guided to Re-Mind her that she previously got back to me “later,” and two of the dates that she wanted for her appointment (a private Prosperity Class, by the way) were no longer available.

I then did something I rarely, if ever, do.  I used my “Words of Power” and told her that in less than three hours, I would book an appointment on one of those currently available dates.  And I did!

She was not thrilled, but I Lovingly and patiently Re-Minded her that my Psychic Services are in demand.  And, given how long she has been using my Psychic Services, she knows all too well how quickly I book up, and she certainly knows that better now!

All in all, I AM happy that I canceled the “Divine Prosperity Event” that I was scheduled to lead last Friday, May 1, as well as the “Divine Love Healing Event” that I was scheduled to lead tonight, Friday, May 8, 2015, and look forward to many more Blessings coming into the lives of the participants of those Events when they do take place, as well as the Blessings that shall continue coming into my life, too.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog followers.  They are: “enlightenedeva,” “Miss Goodwitch,” and “Tracie Louise.”  Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you receive Divine Healing, Divine Inspiration, and Divine Prosperity from following “This Is Who I AM.”

And for those of you already following or reading “This Is Who I AM,” thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do, too.  May you continue to live lives that are rich and opulent in Divine Protection, Divine Prosperity and Divine Peace.

One of my favorite images of my Celestial Mother, Auset, the Ancient Egyptian Goddess more commonly known as Isis.  I saw this on a greeting card, before I ever saw it in Doreen Virtue's "Ascended Masters Oracle Cards!"

Yesterday, Tuesday, April 28, 2015, I had the honor and pleasure of giving a fellow Witch, and a great friend a Reading.  He works like a dog (or, if you prefer, a wolf!) and neither his schedule nor mine allowed for me giving him his Birthday Reading while the Sun was Transiting in his Sun-Sign.

There was something that came to me from Spirit (or, as I have been referring to Her lately, Goddess), during his Reading, and I was Divinely Guided to share it with all of you.

First, I wish to go back a few years ago, specifically to 2012.  On Monday, October 29, 2012, there was a Full Moon in Taurus.  Not coincidentally, that was when hurricane sandy hit.

Two days after, was Halloween, or as my fellow Witches, Pagans, and Wiccans call it, Samhain, which is not only the Witch’s New Year, but also a time of honoring the dead.

This coming Friday is May 1, 2015.  In Magickal Traditions, May 1 is known as Beltane, sometimes Beltaine, and is traditionally the Celebration of the Goddess and the God in Their Sacred Marriage.  It represents the coming of Summer, the honoring and celebration of Fertility, and of greater Abundance.

Not at all coincidentally, two days after Beltane, is Sunday, May 3, 2015.  That is also the date of the Full Moon in Scorpio.

In the Witch’s Wheel of the Year, Samhain and Beltane are at opposite ends of the Wheel.

In Western Astrology, Scorpio and Taurus are Polar Opposite Signs.  Also, the Full Moon Sign is always the Polar Opposite of the Transiting Sun-Sign.  So, when the Sun is in Scorpio, the Full Moon shall be in Taurus, and when the Sun is in Taurus, the Full Moon shall be in Scorpio.

Professionally speaking, I have rarely cared a whit for making predictions for the new year, and even less about celebrities’ lives.  The “predictions” that come to me, come to me when they do.  I do not order, nor do I demand of the Goddess that She reveal to me the “predictions” for the coming year because, like Her, I have more important things to do.

However, the Goddess Saw fit to share this Illumined Insight with me, and She Divinely Guided me to share it in a blog post.  And here we are.

My Sense is that this Wave of Energy (Beltane/The Full Moon in Scorpio) shall usher in a powerful level of Divine Love Healing Energies that shall help many of us heal from hurricane sandy, as well as other maladies that have affected us, both personally, and globally.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog follower, “elizabethansonnets.”  Thank you so much for honoring who I AM and what I do.

And to those of you who are already following or reading “This Is Who I AM,” thank you for continuing to honor who I AM and what I do.  May this Beltaine Moon bring Bright Blessings of Healing, Creativity, Prosperity, Peace and Protection.beltane galasso

Yes, I AM almost done catching up!

This is probably one of the most beloved of Sonnets, and certainly of Ms. Barrett Browning’s works.

I think it is also one of the very first poems I ever read as a young adult.

And here we go…

 

How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday’s

Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.

I love thee freely, as men might strive for Right;

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints,-I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life!-and, if God choose,

I shall but love thee better after death.

 

Truly, this Sonnet does not fail to consume me!

Thanks go to:

for finding this poem, as well as the Google!

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog followers.  They are: Ngobesing Romanus and “elizabethansonnets.”  Thank you, both, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you receive Divine Love, Divine Light, Divine Prosperity, and Divine Peace from following “This I Who I AM.”

And for those of you already following or reading “This Is Who I AM,” may you continue Peace, Health, and Plenty.  In your lives, and in your worlds.
