As I was walking out of the house this morning, with my Alicia Shulman necklace consisting of three strands of beaded turquoise, my husband sighs:
” Where has my witch gone?”
I know what he was trying to say, where had the spiritual, alter making, meditatator/yogi, gone. Had I been transformed into a corporate, high heel, suit, Again?! WAKE UP!
I would like to share another story, fasten your seat belts. When I used to work as the Corporate Spa Developement Director for Orient Express Hotels, I became lost in the fame. I knew that I had gone far away from my herbal wise woman roots. So what does a witch do, quit. So that I did. I made the choice to stop being a creative robot and start finding a husband and family.
One month after, the feeling returned of the need for speed, travel, excitment, dinners, lunches, archichet drawings. So I did, what every corporate mind does, went on interviews. It was this moment that I remeber so vividly. The VP”s, (that would have been my direct boss) aura spoke to me. Meaning I could read through her dry skin, her perfectly polished shoes, and her designer suit. She looked sad, lost, and stuck in the rhythm of texting and phone calls. Her stress that radiated off of her, and that would have been mine if I continued on that path.
I remember laughing, (totally out of context) and feeling a light shining from the universal energy. I thanked her for her time took my high heels off, and walked down the streets of NYC in mid-autumn with no shoes. Connected to my inner rhythm. I was free of the stress, the ego, the need to be.
5 years later, here I am again. Need to find my inner witch. Does anyone hear me?
