Welcome to Midnight Pages

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.  Don’t go back to sleep.
–Rumi

You’re awake for a reason.

Is being up at night your obstacle or your opportunity? True night owls are neuro-divergent. They were the baby who was up all night, exhausting their care-givers, waking the household.

Night owls say things like “I do my best work at night.” That might not come until years of trying to conform to the eight-hour sleep they’ve been recommended. Finally, they surrender to their nature. They say goodnight to the rest of the world, and they do their creative work.

Insomniacs on the other hand, struggle. Sleep eludes them and being up at 2 am frustrates them. A desperate need and want to sleep makes them sick, unable to focus during the day. Pills and practices don’t help. But, there is another option: consider it a season of your life, not forever. Listen to the night and see what it has to tell you. See if there’s something you’re supposed to know, or do. 

Midnight pages is a practice to help you listen to the night. It’ll help you in your creative work and let you find out why you’re up when you don’t want to be. 

Midnight Pages is a book for magic-lovers and mystics, for writers who like a little woo and for anyone ready to explore the archetypes and symbols of darkness. It’s for breaking the rules of what we’re supposed to do – so we can do what we came here to do.

This book and practice is for anyone charting a course by moonlight to where they really want to be. 

Intuition, the s/hero’s journey, automatic writing, creativity, story-telling, soul writing. 

“Finally a creativity guide for those solitary insomniacs who are most inspired in the darkness; a clever counterpoint to the insufferable 6am morning people crowd who seem to dominate the self-help genre.” 

Derek Murphy, Creativindie

Decisions, decisions…

Decisions, decisions…

I don't know why decisions are coming up so frequently lately. In posts, in my classes, when I speak at Spiritual Activism... (that's a Sunday 12:15 ET group you can come to if you want. Speakers share about magic (me), Gnosticism, Automatic (channeled or "direct")...

Owl Moon

This morning at dawn the crescent moon was up, and my son and I heard owls in the woods: a Screech Owl for sure, the low hoo, hoo of the Great Horned Owl and one more... When I was growing up my mother said owls were an omen of death or if you were lucky, just an omen...

The Magical Self

The Magical Self

Magic is when your spells for the small but important things work: locating your keys, growing flowers, finding lovers. You will smile because inconveniences are less pesky and chance encounters become the very thing your heart desired. Also Magical If you're not into...

Is Writer’s Block a Thing?

I have a little company called Earth and Soul Coaching and Publishing, which helps women write and publish their books. I also guide women who want to use writing for spiritual insight and intuitive guidance. It adds a physiological touch to personal and spiritual...

Resisting resistance

Where do you go for advice? Experts, teachers, guides, ancestors, doctors, "studies show"? The school of hard knocks, a trainer, coach, yogini, talkative massage dude, the inbox? Whose opinion do you trust? Three out of five dentists surveyed, statistics, Hannity,...

I’m not sure what this means

God is in the body not as you will, but as She wills. — Max Shüpbach I found this quote a while ago and kept the file open. So, it must be important. This morning I decided to get to the bottom of it. I closed my eyes and instantly got a jarring awareness. The Goddess...

The ego, the witch and the pilgrimage…

I did some automatic writing this morning because the non-automatic kind --where we muscle ourselves into the chair and stare at a white screen and cry and sweat-- was blocked. It only took two seconds for the answer: Ego. Of course my ego is the block. It's...

Whose Belly?

A smart friend said, "I like your blog. But, why Belly Witch?" How did I not know to start out with that? Here it is. Belly Witch is a reaction to the labeling some witchy/shaman-ish friends started offering up several years ago. Urban, Kitchen, Moon, Sun Witch. I...

New Moon

How do you feel today on the new Moon? There are stereotypes about how the moon phases make us feel, but it's different for everyone. For me, New Moon feels like possibility. For you, it might be a blank slate, a down time or something else. Some of us don't consider...

Full August Moon

“I’m never going to be a Witch,” a friend wrote me after my first post. That’s groovy. She already has powerful magic. Writers are supposed to have an “ideal audience” and she’s definitely part of mine. She’s a seeker, giver, gentle and fierce; someone who has tried...

Seasonal Magic

Once I was a minister. Now I am a Witch. I am free and out of the broom closet. But if I had gotten out of the box of patriarchy's religion sooner, things would've been different. But more on that another time. Today is July 31st, Lammas Eve and I want to talk about...
