Issue the Third Ezine
Attention: This is an EPUB document. We have linked information about how to use EPUB documents at the end of the product description.
Often in witchy circles, we give lots of attention to the transformation process, setting intentions and discussing manifestation techniques, but we don’t always talk about what happens when the transformations we’ve been cultivating take shape and come to fruition. What happens when it’s time to to harvest and gather? Is this a time of beginning or ending? Or both? How do we integrate? How do we stay in that moment without immediately pushing back the goal posts?
We often talk about “reaping” and “harvest” as joyful times, full of abundance. What about other facets of this idea? We live in a time where we are actively dealing with the consequences of systemic policies and actions that are violent and filled with terror. We are living in the reaping of what our ancestors have sown; how do we strategize and cope with that? How do we plan for a future where our descendants are not bound to reap the terrifying consequences of the events we set in motion now?
Issue the Third: Reaping is a tribute to the idea that reaping is about more than successful manifesting. Reaping is about the consequences for our actions, the beauty of harvesting failure, or making beauty out of sorrow.
