Lily’s Choice Reading


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Afternoon all, it’s Liza the Owner of The Wandering Path. Last night was one of those “struggle to sleep” nights…and so the day started much later with so many things again to accomplish. For over a week I’ve had extra energy; been desiring to bring in more pagan focused items (i.e. altar tables, chalices, etc..) things that normally I try to balance out with other spiritual paths as I like the store to feel open for all to enter not just those of one spiritual/cultural exploration or another.

I admit I’ve been extra worried as the outside job search has still not panned out to anything but here I am spending money to bring in stock. Well, with the late hour start…while trying to drink my coffee and decide where to start on the “to do” list…one of my felines decided to jump on a oracle deck I had and spew them about. She never does this so…I decided to take a look…perhaps since I have not been able to do my normal focusing, centering, meditating; inquiring….she is trying to tell me something.

After completing the look at the cards she placed face up…she may be onto something. Hopefully this means that even though I am a bit pensive about the monetary store purchases this is a good thing and I need to see where this approach takes me which could be what I needed to do … which could also mean why the outside job search has not panned out…because things are going to pick up.

I also need to get on task of updating the website with a kind of BOS/Research section…or a knowledge base of things I advise in person for those that do not have a chance to visit…which is something I have been trying to figure out what to say; what to name (Drui Keep; The Keep; ZCDWW…putting Zen Celtic Druid Witchy Ways on a page name is too long lol)…in other words still TBD on how I want to organize and have it look.

Wonderfully Numb (Body wise)


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Afternoon all, it’s Liza the Owner of The Wandering Path. I apologize for the lack of blog postings but rather than post things negative or down-trodden I wait until I have something I want to share with you that is helpful, hopeful, or just a bit of fun educational. The past six months I’ve been battling on/off a re-occurring sinusitis coupled with other physical ailments including massive insomnia that just aggravate my normal pain tolerance levels.

Last night…rather than just putting my “Sandman I’m ready” blend just on my face to make me sleepy…I decided the forearms, feet, and shins were all aching a bit too much and I wasn’t about to get up again and go look for the other blends I usually use on those (Help my Sore body – forearms; Help my Achy Feet for…you guessed it…the feet).

Well…hmm…I actually slept much longer than I have been in some time (3 am went right on by without needing to announce itself to me). I got up at a decent hour but was very comfortably “numb”. For those that live with chronic pain…this is an incredibly blessed experience to have….although…I admit, driving to the store I was more “hmm…that’s nice” mode than “pay attention to the tourists why don’t you!” So safe to say I did the bare minimum so I could come home. It is now mid-afternoon and so far the only things that have started to “pang” is the face (stupid allergies acting up…need to take another Wellness) and my feet have begun to complain a bit…but the rest (back, legs, arms, etc…) are all still wonderfully numb.

For the first time in months I was able to eat a meal without swearing…if you’ve had bad sinusitis you know what I’m talking about as your teeth and muscles in your face really complain when you try to move them. I thought I’d share this new bit of “that’s interesting..hmm…” option of something I had made up to help me combat my insomnia that apparently if you put on all over….may actually help beyond just resting …. First thoughts are I am breathing so much of the relaxing the body& brain (make that melatonin) that I’ve kinda given myself an aromatherapy mega relaxant…ha! Here’s to hoping I can continue to at least enjoy a few more hours of feeling perhaps like I did decades ago.

–Blessings to you all & here is to hoping that when I read this later it is a cohesive thought process and not a “oi….yep, even the brain was super relaxed”. Liza M; Owner, The Wandering Path LLC.

Winter Solstice


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Afternoon all, it’s Liza the Owner of The Wandering Path I’ve been battling worries, body sicknesses and so many empathic emotions from others the past few weeks but today….at least for a brief period of time (as I write this it is more settled) things seem to feel better…and lighter and I only hope that it continues.

I put on movies that remind me of things (Practical Magic the one that truly set off goose bumps and a sense of calm); consulted my pendulum; lit a candle and burned some sage…I also made sure to put on my “lift my mood heal my face blend” and even though the rain falls and winter weather seems to be holding off the foggy future no longer feels so daunting but rather as if the Winter Solstice has started to open at least a path to wander ahead towards things that I need to learn, discover, and that the outlook is again hopeful.

–Blessings to you all & here is to hopeful ways in the coming year. Liza M; Owner, The Wandering Path LLC.

Good Morning all, it’s Liza the Owner of The Wandering Path. I realize I haven’t posted in quite some time and it has come down to one word echoing in my mind more frequently lately…disheartened…the state of being where one begins to lose hope and confidence in what they are doing.

After two years in business…I recognize I’m not the most “money minded” business person. I run my business more on my gut and moral instinct. I can’t bring myself to overcharge. I try to be fair minded and kindhearted.

I regularly share my personal struggles; listen to the struggles of others; share my research into my products as well as how you can use them to help save you money and also make your own items to help you heal in both body and spirit.

I could, like many places I seen, mark up my items or even mark them up and then put them on “sale” so you can seem to get a better deal. I could take extra funds and print off prettier labels or even hype up things to make it seem as if it is an item you absolutely must have rather than keep the prices much lower and let you decide if it is an item that will improve your life and outlook.

I rely on word of mouth rather than on paying for spam advertising. Even when the cost of re-stocking items goes up; I take a hit rather than raise the price. If a time period comes around where particular items could be used or given I drop the prices because I truly want you to enjoy them and let them help you enjoy your lives.

In the New Year I shall have to try to find another position (again) to help supplement my income as you cannot live in society today necessarily doing what you love doing….although I’m trying my best to be hopeful for the future and that perhaps one day, very soon…my approach will be rewarded and that consumers will recognize the value in supporting businesses that operate with the care of people in mind instead of the size of the income earned.

I do wish you all the best holiday season and the brightest of blessings to you all.

Neglected Connections


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Afternoon all, it’s Liza the Owner of The Wandering Path. The holiday’s are upon us and I know myself as well as many others may feel disconnected from people…that while we love them…we don’t seem to know them anymore.

Relationships…need to be tended. Some connections can come back quickly while others take more effort. Then you have the ones where you realize that your time together has passed but that doesn’t mean you can’t become friends again but in another way; to learn again about what the journey has been like; how you can be that support for one another; have respect for one another; or bid them farewell and wish them the best of luck in their journey ahead.

Life is a journey we all take; and those that travel with us will change; but it is on us to make sure that those we want along our journey stay with us for they may find another path and fade away before we even know it.

Brightest of Blessings to you all.

–Liza M; Owner, The Wandering Path LLC.
