Firewalking truth weavers go deeper, own their problems, accept responsibility, and do the necessary work to claim their power. On the other hand, those Desperately Seeking Magic want someone else to do this all for them, usually for free. Step over those toxic firepits. Instead, weave your own truth from the flames.
Firewalkers like me and you choose truth. Boldly following our intuition. Taking risks. Doing the research. Vulnerability is our super power. Burning bright, but not out of control. Boundaries are our personal magic circle. We use our time wisely because she knows it is our most magical commodity. Our magic has no color. Our deities are our allies, not wish granting statues. We call the spirits who walk with us in the flames our companions. We walk our unique fiery journey, weaving our truth from the flames.
The Desperate Magic Seeker is pitied by The Fire Walking Truth Weaver, but she knows they probably can’t be helped, at least by her. Plus, it’s a waste of her precious time because The Desperate Magic Seeker most likely has absolutely no interest in doing the required work to sort their shit out, or they aren’t in a place to do so. When the DSM is a complete stranger, there’s no way the FTW is going to walk into that toxic fire pit.
The Chronic Desperate Magic Seeker
The Chronic Desperate Magic Seeker blames everyone else for their hot mess of a life. Life is not fair, they say. Everyone owes them something because of this. They want the insta-spells, the free magical advice, and especially, for you to interpret their tarot cards for them. To be blunt, they don’t want,to, or can’t, invest their own time in solving their problems, but expect everyone else to do so. I don’t have time for them. I cannot help those who can’t help themselves. I can send them love and a sincere wish that they find healing. Just to be clear: this is not sincere practitioners looking for advice and support. It is those who throw a picture on social media and expect everyone else to run to their aid. Invest time in what you seek. Show me it is important to you that way, and I will gladly offer you some of my time. Speaking of spells, I absolutely believe that a well woven spell can help us to achieve our goals.
Walking The Fire Walk
The proof of being a Fire Walking Truth Weaver is in the ashes, the residual of the fire-magic made. My spells are my fire made into form, the culmination of effort and the commitment to walk through the fire to manifest what I seek. I did such a spell to bless all things to do with Keeping Her Keys on New Year’s Day 2019. I danced in the flames, summoning my power and connecting to the spirits I wove into my spell. I burned away all that no longer served. Layers of spirits and correspondences were burned into my truth tapestry, including a tightly woven incantation. It took me weeks to get it ready. The spell was cast. Then I further activated it right here on this blog. Did it work? I have, in less than two years, transitioned to making a comfortable living off the proceeds of true magic. I am a single mother with two dependents. Everything I have achieved in my life I earned myself. By walking through the flames and weaving truth, not by watching others’ fires burn and wishing they were my own or by sitting idly by refusing to step on the hot coals.
Owning Our Firewalking Power
There’s this thing where we don’t talk about accomplishments, but I say we stop this nonsense. We are Firewalking Truth Weavers, aren’t we? We need to stop denying our power AND giving it away so freely to the DSMs that are unworthy (not all are, of course). Claiming our achievements is our right. Energetically, our deserved pride attracts more success. When we share our stories of success with each other in a closed space, like The Realm, we spread the power to each other. Like the Ace of Cups, our energy runs over. If only those DSMs would realize this and drink from our cup. However, they’re usually too self-involved to even notice. There can be very good reasons for this. Here’s the thing: it’s not my place to figure them out. Firewalkers step over and away from bomb fires that aren’t their own.
We Got Used To The Heat, So We Claimed It As Ours
FTWs have been very burned in the past: by heartache, loss and other types of pain. They often returned home after going straight through hell. We should not only discuss, but celebrate the flames that were our true initiation. Sharing our failures and pains is truth weaving. The more honest we are, the more likely that we are actively working to climb out of the pits we fall in. There’s a borderline between speaking truth and wallowing in misery. Choose which spiritual territory you reside in. That’s my advice. Walk proudly through the fire, head held high. Own it. It is your right.
Become The Chief Executive Of Your Own Life And Other Tips For Igniting Your Own True Fire
Time is our most valuable resource. Tending the fire requires your time. How you spend it determines your happiness. Where attention goes, energy flows.
What you consider your flaws are most likely your most amazing talents. These talents are the fuel for your fire.
Our finances can either be fuel for our authentic fire or a sort of toxic inferno that burns out of control. Know what you owe and how much you spend.
Accept the fires in which you burned that weren’t your creation. The times you were forced into hell at the whims of another. Extinguish those flames. This is not negotiable. As long as we continue to pour energy into thinking that life isn’t fair, it won’t be. What happened, happened. Acceptance is not approval.
Initiation comes with a price. Through hell and victory, keep going. Each crossroads and key taken moves you deeper into truth. Speaking of hell, the only way out is through. We can learn the lesson we are there for, or keep avoiding it and burn for eternity.
Cultivate and cherish your identity because it is your internal flame that will light the larger one that leads you towards your dreams and goals. Fire scrying on the inside. Learn who you are and what brings you happiness. It is shocking how many women, I was once one of them, have no idea.
Firewalking truth weaving is reconnecting to that internal, eternal flame wherein the answers we seek are found.
Get rid of what is dampening your fire. This won’t be easy or nice. Disappointment. Hard conversations. Making changes. Banishing all that no longer serves.
Fire needs air to grow, but creating space can leave us feeling empty and alone. That’s a necessary part of the journey. If there’s no space, the right people and the desired outcomes can’t get in. Use the power of this space to manifest your truth using methods that summon real power.
This all takes a ton of effort and time. Hard work and persistence is the secret to firewalking truth weaving magic.
The firewalker is not one who has never been burned. It is the one who drags herself up from the ashes every damn time.
Truth In The Flames: What I’ve Learned So Far
I was broken and sobbing on the bathroom floor when I realized that I had to change. I walked away from an upper middle class lifestyle to pursue my dreams. We lived in a run down cottage that barely had water and was heated by a fireplace for two years. One of my son’s slept in an uninsulated storeroom. As a family, we agreed to make sacrifices so we could have a better life. I needed to pay off a mountain of debt. I finally manifested the home we bought through the magic of hard work and persistence. I was beaten to an inch of my life by my first husband and then he left me there. I have been sexually assaulted. My upbringing was characterized by secrets, lies and invalidation. I could choose to believe in the labels assigned to the consequences of these things, but I flat-out refuse. That was not my fire. I chose, over years, to learn from those ashes. A few selected embers from the other-imposed fires helped me to reconnect to my internal flame and then create my own fire. There is wisdom in those embers.
Proof In The Flames: Shining The Torch So Others Can Walk Through Their Fire
Earlier today I received an email from someone who had read Keeping Her Keys. A get a few messages every day from someone who has taken their valuable time to share with me that my work has helped them to become a Firewalking Truth Weaver. This email was different. The writer described their utter hopelessness after a horrible heartbreak. One evening, as they prepared to end their own life, they stumbled across Keeping Her Keys, with their revolver sitting beside the computer. A voice told them to “read” and they did. Since then they have walked through the fire, weaving a new truth. Even in that fire of despair, they resisted desperation and did the work. If you are in the hellfire right now, let this message (which the author gave me permission to share) speak to you. Do the work. Go into yourself. Find the answers. Reconnect to your truth. Weave it anew.
Students in my Mystery School who choose to walk in their fire become powerful practitioners of truth weaving. They get the perfect job for them, buy houses, launch their own successful magical businesses, heal from trauma, release the death-grip of the past, get pregnant against all odds, and establish new relationships with each other that are mutually beneficial.
We Are The Fire. We Are The Magic.
We are the magic. No candle, botanical, stone or spell will ever do anything for us that we won’t do for ourselves. We are the fire.
