I’m Jules and I am one of the newest PaganPages columnists. I’m female and live in Las Vegas, NV with my family and cats. I first discovered myself as a pagan, witch, psychic and empath back in 1999 and I’ve been a strong believer in the Goddess ever since. I am a spiritual artist and I love to make things to brighten up people’s days. I sell my creations in a local store and on Etsy.
The advice column I’ll be doing will be called “Dear Jules”. I’ve always been someone who others go to for advice. In one of the groups I belong to I saw that PaganPages was looking for some new columnists and I figured I’d give it a whirl. I’d love for this column to be a safe haven where you can go to someone for advice who has an entirely objective perspective on your situation. I’d like to be able to help others with matters like love, relationships and life in general. I would love to see the column develop into something very down-to-earth and easy to relate to for all of us.
I am honored to be the newest member of the PaganPages family and I look forward to dispensing heartfelt advice. I’d love to help in any way that I can. Please send your questions to me at [email protected]. All printed questions will remain anonymous once printed – please sign your questions the way you would a “Dear Abby” submission with something along the lines of “Lonely in Seattle.”
Yes, they are upon us again already! The holidays can be stressful for all of us for a multitude of reasons – there’s never any shortage. One of the most difficult aspects of the holiday is dealing with depression and loneliness – others and our own. It is easy to get drained when people close to us are depressed, lonely or suicidal. Please take time to take care of yourself. Make sure that you eat and drink well and get enough rest. Know what your limitations are. If someone is depending on you too much be sure to let them know in a kind and gentle manner that you need to take care of yourself. You need to come first. You need to be taken care of just as much as anyone else does.
I don’t like to think of holidays as a time of obligation to others. Being around family and friends is a choice and it’s always okay to opt out.
Before getting angry this holiday season try to take 3 deep breaths and calm your mind and then react in the most understanding and compassionate way possible. This will ease your stress and will help you to avoid straining relationships unnecessarily.
Merry Meet, Merry Part, Merry Meet Again
