Hello, and welcome to my corner of this portal of light we call the Internet. My name is Effy ‘Bird’ Wild, (she/her, INFJ, Libra with Libra rising and a Cap moon, soul number 9, in case you were curious) and I am an artist, writer, and teacher. I believe I was put on this earth to hold space for the part of you that yearns to be creative, and through creativity, come into alignment with your best, most healed, most authentic self.

By some awesome stroke of luck, I have managed to gather the most loving, compassionate, authentic, and inspiring community around what I do, and if you’re here, I’d be willing to bet you’re one of them. Why don’t you join us? 

 

 

Witch Adjacent

Witch Adjacent

My Witch Adjacent is having surgery today, (Sigourney is finally being cast into the outer darkness!!!) so I am pretty much just holding her body and soul together with my thoughts because that's how I roll. Carly is keeping me posted. Meanwhile, I'm painting. That's...

Storytime

Storytime

I. I watched the documentary series entitled "Q: Into The Storm" over the course of last week and WHOA. Fascinating. Everyone should watch it if they want to understand how the fuck QAnon happened, who is behind it, and how *creepy* it really is. II. Mentioning it on...

Go Frolic Yourself!

Go Frolic Yourself!

Today will be just a few things since I spent the weekend getting loose ends tied up for A Year Of Mary + did some art for me, and I have literally nothing to say except YAY ART OMG SQUEE! This is my offering for A Year of Mary for the month of April. I am IN LOVE...

Pass It On

Pass It On

I. The news is all "dire dire emergency catastrophic apocalyptic do not leave your fucking house on pain of death" + the funeral of Prince Philip. II. I watched the funeral and pretty much felt nothing but annoyance with the focus on the relationship between Harry and...

Giving It My Some

Giving It My Some

I feel like this is all I've got today, but *this totally counts*. I found it on the book of faces and yoinked it because I felt an immediate sense of relief when I read it. And since I've got nothing more (if I pushed for more, it would be whiny - weather, artist's...

#Goals

#Goals

I. Yesterday, I tossed two wet teabags into the paper bag I had sitting on my kitchen table - the one that was holding all the little bits and bobs of garbage I was tossing into it as I went about the business of clawing my kitchen back from the chaos that happens...

The Long Work

The Long Work

Today doesn't have ten things in it because the sameness of things is getting me down a little bit. I am not here to pretend to be up when I'm not. I'm here to tell the truth, so hey, hi. I'm over *waves at all of this* and if you're looking for a pick me up, I am not...

Anxiety Girl

Anxiety Girl

I. The lower right torso thing seems to be resolving, finally. I'm still a bit tender, but it's totally manageable. Phew! I'm not dying! Take that anxiety girl! *Giggles* II. I have rested myself into a corner of "so behind" though, so I'm annoyed, but I'll get myself...

Safeword

Safeword

I. This came across my feed and I felt it in my whoooooole body. II. My safeword, in this case, is "more, please". III. I'm still tender in the lower torso and yesterday, it triggered yet another trauma response, but this one was of the "what if I'm dying variety" so...

Witching In All The Ways

Witching In All The Ways

I. Yesterday was super busy, but super good despite the lower torso thing that seems to be getting better but slowwwwwwwly. I did a live with my witches, which was awesome, and then LLMJ, which was also awesome. Kimi came over and we watched 2 episodes of New...

I Am The Storm

I Am The Storm

I. It is astonishing how easily I forget that pain - especially pain in the lower torso area of my body - is a huge trauma trigger for me. I remembered last night, but not until after I got whipped up into a frenzy of abandonment depression. It doesn't come up often...

I Am Loved. All Is Well.

I Am Loved. All Is Well.

I. I have reached the age where I hurt myself IN MY SLEEP and have no idea wtf happened. I woke up at 2 in the morning with my right lower back *on fire* and was terrified for a little while there that I had a kidney infection or stone (I've had a kidney infection...

Misanthropist In Training

Misanthropist In Training

I. Next up on the tour is "Language" and as I read the prompt, I sighed deeply, because words are one of my love languages. If I love you, I will offer you carefully selected words. Poems. Song lyrics. I will write you letters. I will spend hours in conversation with...

Laughter

Laughter

I. FBT prompt #5 is about laughter, and I'm here to tell you very simply that I am fucking hilarious and I love my sense of humour. I don't know where I'd be without it. It is the glue in so many of my relationships, and if we're not laughing together on the regular,...

Contentment

Contentment

I. Prompt #4 in FBT asks us to consider our senses. As I sink into morning coffee & contemplation, the first thing that comes to mind is how grateful I am for the work I've done to get more and more into my body and out of my head. When you have C-PTSD, being...

I Just Wanted You To Know.

I Just Wanted You To Know.

This came up in my memories yesterday, and though it was written in 2017, I thought it was worthy of a repost because much of it is still true. I've included some footnotes, because I'm 100% that nerd.  If you’ve followed me on social media (or been in my classes) for...

Obsessions

Obsessions

I. Another day of playing catch up in Full Bush and today we're talking about obsessions. I *love* having obsessions. I love the way shared obsessions cement friendships & love affairs. If I love you, I want us to share at least one or two obsessions. More is...

Rider

Rider

I. I am in Full Bush with Renee this year, but I stalled somewhere around prompt six, so I've decided to reengage as part of my blogalong. There are 23 prompts to explore, which should pad my blog fodder nicely! Find Renee here.  II. The first prompt is to write one's...

A Ramble & A Rant

A Ramble & A Rant

I.Shiny brand new month! Spring! The month-end list is SLAIN! I feel like the queen of my own domain. II. March was a bit gnarly - there's been a lot of ups and downs in the realm of vaccine rollouts. Things are going much more slowly than anyone would like. Variants...
