The Exorcism of SilkenKiera

"FOR WHAT YOU DO IN LIFE ECHOS FOR ALL ETERNITY"
-General Maximus

This weekend my younger bother came to stay with my husband and I while my parents went out of town. Now my brother is 17 years old, he could have stayed by himself, but we haven't gotten to see much of each other recently. He's been heavily into preparing for college. Since we were all together hanging out, he accompanied us to our weekly Saturday morning run to the farmers market where I get my produce, meat, and flowers for the week. At one point we all went our separate ways, (my antique and rare china hunt is a joy that I usually end up venturing on my own for, for some reason everyone tends to scatter) While visiting my usual fabulous but over priced antique booth, I stumbled upon a new booth next door. I was drawn in by the exotic and temping herbal smell that was wafting into the aisle way. The shelves were lined with handmade soaps and rows upon rows of bags of tea leaves toted to cure insomnia, bronchitis, fever, upset stomach and everything else. While standing there, I found an interesting display of Smugging sets. For those unfamiliar smudging is a ceremonial burning of a bundle of sage to clear negative energies around you. I have often ran around my office pissed off about one thing or another screaming that I was going to burn sage to rid us all of bad luck. Well, now was my chance.

I immediately bought the kit which came with a complete set of directions and buried it in my market bag. I viewed these bundles of sage as my last link to "saving" me from myself. My negativity has often grasped me by my own throat, not just now, but always. I have often tried the positive route, but I find that I just sound programed and insincere. So I am finally going to look my negativity in the eye and burn this sage. Now, I know some negativity is healthy, even necessary. We can't walk around with rose colored glasses ALL the time, that will turn you into a naive and gullible person. (NEVER wear rose colored glasses when you are talking to a politician, your ex, your banker, a car dealer, an attorney) However, I'm still resistant to let people remember me as a person who could always be counted on to bring up the flip side to a good situation. I don't want to be the person whom upon learning that you won 1 Million Dollars would say "Congratulations, you'll never see 40% of that because of all the taxes you'll have to pay."

This negativity exorcism of mine had me thinking the whole weekend. Breaking down negative behavior has to be tackled a little at a time, and being a women, my gender seemed a natural place to start. Therefore prompting my next little essay for tomorrow, WOMEN IN 2006 Also, having ADD there are some other issues thrown in for good measure. Believe me, this could end up being quite a ride. Imagine Kiera running around her bedroom in a caftan burning bundles of sage and fanning the smoke all over herself with a feather. Maybe I should post pics! Starting right now I am holding a positive image of this working. No, OK starting now. OK, no. Damn it! OK. starting now. Wait. OK, NOW!

I hope that it works for you. It took me some therapy sessions to look at the positive side of life. LOL
