When religious needs arise, the funds follow
I have been in serious need of religious supplies for a while now. Back in our old place buying more things seemed like a waste of both money and space. But in this new place space is not a concern. Money, however, still is.
I promised my Patrons when we moved into this place they would be out in the open, not hidden away. I have kept that promise and it has been wonderful. Their spaces are a little cramped but I’m hoping to rectify that situation soon. I’ve also set up Hestia in the kitchen to honour the hearth and soul of the home.
So now it’s down to finances. There are things that I have needed that I just couldn’t afford. Not just things for Aphrodite and Hermes, but things to bless this home and sweep out the negative energies The Fiancée’s sister left behind. I wrote about going to the local shop with a spiritual friend of mine. I had a $10 budget. On the way there I found a hidden $5 bill in the car. The total for everything I needed? A little over $14.
I have been wanting to get things like incense and herbs for my Patrons and my home to reinforce the blessings and happiness, as well as a wash for the basement for when my sister-in-law finally gets her shit out ofthere (we’re going on over a month here, and she still won’t get off her ass to do it). I would also like to get those bookshelves to be altars. But once again money is my stumbling block.
A week ago another spiritual friend asked if I would be willing to do a reading for a friend of hers, citing a closeness to the situation that might impair her ability to do an accurate reading. And of course I would be paid for my time. $75 was accepted as a good price and I did the reading. At first we were going to use that money for bills, but then we got a bit of a financial break, so I was able to use my money I earned in a religious endeavour for religious things.
So I went on a mini shopping spree at the Magickal Cat. And today it arrived. Whoot! (Look at my beautiful hardwood floors!)
I still have money left over, but I’m about $4 short of being able to get the bookshelves, but I’m sure that will be rectified soon enough, considering The Fiancée has had several orders to fill at work. Even if I have to wait until next month, it’s a lot better than “when the old car sells, which will eventually happen, maybe soon, but maybe not”.
So things are moving forward. And I’m feeling really good about it.
