HoneyLuneHivery’s 11 Questions:

  1. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
    I would go to Glastonbury in the UK because it is a spiritual destination that appears beautiful and rich with history.
  2. What is your biggest fear and why?
    Perhaps tornadoes/strong winds are my biggest fear.  I used to have scary dreams in which tornadoes were coming at me from multiple directions and I was struggling to find shelter.  It doesn’t help that I saw a news report some time ago in which either a tornado or straight-line winds caused an oak tree to fall on a woman’s house and kill her.
  3. What is one of your most memorable experiences thus far?
    Visiting Northville, MI with my guy and his family.  We explored Mill Race Village and took a guided cemetery tour with members of the local historical society that wore period costume.
  4. What’s your favorite animal?  Cats.
  5. What is your favorite piece that you’ve written?
    I suppose my favorite blog post of my own is “How Do You Know You’re A Witch? – Explaining the Natural Witch“.
  6. What is your creative muse? What inspires you?
    This varies.  I can find inspiration in dreams, nature, or the words of others.
  7. Where do you see yourself in five years?
    I honestly do not see myself anywhere in particular in five years.  I am taking life day by day.  I do see myself with my significant other wherever life takes me.
  8. If you had one way to influence this world and invoke change, what would it be?
    I am already doing it with this blog.  My way is to teach things of a spiritual or metaphysical nature to those who are interested and learn from others to make myself a better person in this world.
  9. What is a book you’re currently reading?
    I have been reading The Temple of Shamanic Witchcraft off and on.
  10. What is your favorite vegetable?
    Broccoli or potatoes.
  11. Who do you think you were in a past life?
    A priestess or wise woman of an old-world European tribe.  I am not sure if that tribe would be Celtic or Germanic.

 

Random Facts about Me:

  1.  I have crushed on Jareth (the Goblin King).
  2.  I refuse to use an outhouse.  I am convinced there is a spider in all of them waiting to get me.
  3.  I am fascinated by past life stories, especially when they can be supported.
  4.  Although I feel I was a priestess type figure in past lives, I haven’t had any knowing or certain memories of past lives.
  5.  I used to love Merlin starring Sam Neil.  My favorite character was Queen Mab even though she was antagonist.
  6.  I have thought of myself as a “crystal witch”.  This is because working with crystals in an integral part of my spiritual practice.
  7.  I adore Jane Austen movies even though the society of the time would have been far too oppressive for me.
  8. I have a little bit of a crush on Nathan Fillion.
