One of the things I like to do at Samhain is sit down and take stock. What worked for me? What ended in disaster? What can I do differently? How do I make the year ahead AMAZING…what if this year was my last year alive?
That may be a bit morbid to some, but it’s a reality that I prefer not to let slip too far from my conscious mind. I want to leave this realm and know that I lived as fully as possible. You know what they say,
“Waste not, want not!”
Now, I know Samhain is done and gone but I was going through my journal and found the information on The Troth of Nine. It’s never too late to figure out who you are, who you want to be and how you’d like to travel from point A to point B.
I got the idea from Yasmine Galenorn’s book “Embracing the Moon.”
There are nine main aspects of your life that you look at and balance. My oath isn’t the same as Yasmine’s and yours won’t be the same as mine. Each individual has their own set of ethics and values so it’s important to create a troth that meets your needs and challenges you to live up to your full potential!
If you have any questions, feel free to let me know in the comments section so I can help out.
We all know that when a Witch takes an oath in front of their Goddess, it is a binding agreement. The Troth of Nine resonated with me so deeply because it is a promise to my Goddess, not just a resolution slurred out after one too many rum runners. Think deeply about the oath you are making. Once you’ve bound yourself to the Troth, live it with all your heart! Let your actions be a true example of what you’ve spoken.
Love and Light,
Blessings of the Goddess✨
