Winter Solstice blessings to you all!

It's been another busy week for The Witches Hideaway and another week of me counting my blessings. My work with spirit means so, so much to me. It's the best feeling in the world to be able to help others, either through readings or through my Witchcraft. There seems to be a greater number of people wanting to embrace the Craft in to their lives, and I think it's because they are seeking something which can help them to not only make sense of the world, but to also empower them to bring about the positive changes they wish to make in their own lives.

While the darker nights have been upon us I have spent time reflecting on the past year and how my journey has progressed, and wow what a journey it's been! Through my work in The Witches Hideaway I have not just gained wonderful and regular clients, but the dearest of friends, so much so they are like my family. We've shared so many good times this year, nights of laughter, fun, magick, trips out to magickal places and of course cake lol.

My list of clients continues to grow and sees people from all over the country visiting me, so much so that it's looking very like my work in The Witches Hideaway will need to go full time so I can fit everyone in lol. My Spirit Guides continue to reduce me to hysterics with the funny ways they pass information on to me and some of the things they come out with, well!... but bless them all for never leaving my side and supporting me (well more egging me on and dragging me along at speed sometimes lol) but my goodness they make my heart sing!

The way I work is so vitally important to me. I work in truth with love and integrity at all times because well, why wouldn't I! I want to serve spirit in the best way possible and hopefully show other people how it should work because let's face it, unfortunately there's a few people out there who are doing us a great disservice, and it's got to stop.

I've had a couple of readings myself this year, and they ALL say the same thing. They say my work will explode next year and that I'll have a shop to teach from, sell magickal products from and do readings from. Well who knows, I've not ruled it out yet that's for sure lol.

However you are spending the Yuletide season, let joy fill your heart and an abundance of good wishes surround you.

Much love x

It's been a weird sort of week. I bid farewell to one of my oldest and dearest Maidstone friends, Kev, because he's moved house to start a new and happier life for himself beside the sea. No one deserves the peace and happiness more than him. What a wonderful human being, one who made such an impact on all who knew him. Kev taught me everything I need to know about charity shopping lol. Only this week before he left he brought me this amazing brand new charity shop find below which was £2.50! They are well over £20 new!

We have years of amazing memories from our paranormal investigating days, to all the get togethers we shared with our amazing spooky friends (where of course it was all about CAKE). So much laughter, so much fun, so many fantastic experiences together on our adventures with spirit, and it will take me a very, very long time to get used to the fact he's not just around the corner any more.

Obviously we will be making some road trips here and there to go and stay with him, so here's your advance warning Kev - we may need to hire a bus to visit because everyone wants to come LOL.

It's my usual Psychic Development Circle tonight so I'm looking forward to seeing some gorgeous and very excited faces, they're all doing SO well! Tomorrow morning will see me on a mad crafting session in The Witches Hideaway to get some orders out before Christmas, so it's all go as usual which is lovely.

It's been so magical seeing ice and frost everywhere in the mornings but it really reminds me how fortunate I am to have a lovely warm home and food in the cupboards, which is sadly more than most in today's society, and isn't that shocking. Almost 2020 and people are sleeping rough in ever increasing numbers. Heartbreaking. I understand most people are worried about handing money over, but I bet a hot cuppa and a bar of chocolate wouldn't go amiss. However you make a difference, no matter how small, thank you.

Till next time!

Hi and welcome to my first blog post!

I recently went to my first Witchfest thanks to some fabulous Witchy ladies who bought myself and my Husband tickets for my 50th early ths year. What an experience (especially the protesting Christians outside, yes, even in 2019!). I met some amazing people and bought some wonderful magickal goods, and the necklace below was one of them. It's an Ametrine crystal which is great for calming the mind and stimulating creativity. It also has a strong healing energy and I love how I feel when I wear it. I was lucky enough to attend with some dear friends from The Witches Hideaway so we really did have a blast and we also ate an awful lot of cake lol, well it is part of a Witches staple diet you know! I also met Damh the Bard, eeek!

Having The Witches Hideaway and watching it grow from strength to strength has been the most magickal experience for me. I have been able to do the work I love and have met so many amazing souls, some of which are like family to me now and my life is richer beyond my wildest dreams for it.

Of course none of this would be possible without the endless love, laughter and support of my wonderful husband Roger and also my dear friends who have stood beside me and urged me ever onward. Next year will see The Witches Hideaway having another growth spurt, more on that another time.

Anyway, short and sweet just to get things underway. Sending you all love and Witchy wishes for an amazing weekend whatever you're doing.

Jo x
