Something Brave and My Name

I hesitated to upload a profile picture.  My spirituality has mostly been private out of fear of condemnation.  There is safety in anonymity.  However, I know I like being able to apply a face to the posts of those I read.  It aids in a sense of connection, and my blog aims to achieve connection with like-minded souls.  Thus, I have posted a profile picture.  It is an older picture.  However, not much has changed in my appearance.  The photo seems to be a wonderful expression of my spirituality.  This small action may not seem very brave to some, but it is for me.  Additionally, it seems I have found my magickal name.  I have not yet received dream confirmation of it.  I might not receive dream confirmation of it.  It seems right though.  The magickal/spiritual name I have settled on (at least for the foreseeable future) is Persephone Rose.  Rose has been with me for years.  The Persephone is a recent addition.  You may address me with that full name, as Persephone, Rose, or Ms. Rose.  Much love to my supportive readers.

  1. I understand. I blogged for many years about New Age material in Secret before I had the courage to post about it on Facebook. I am still hesitant about how my family will react. It was personally important to me to come out of hiding. There is no shame in hiding, only if/when you are ready should you do otherwise. There was much learning I had to learn before I felt ready. I needed to truly respect others beliefs, and understand that my acceptance of myself was more important then how others accept me.

    1. My family is mostly unaware, and largely should remain that way. I am on the Bible Belt after all. I am thankful that my fiance, although not particularly spiritual himself, is accepting of my general witchiness/eclectic spirituality.
