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? 

 

 

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...

Bring It On

Bring It On

I. Still fighting the good fight with GG in hospital and hoping his brain will come back from this latest break with reality, which is taking up a lot of emotional bandwidth. I'm going in to see him tomorrow. Wish me luck and a COVID-free hospital visit. II. Journal...

I’d Rather Be Feral Than Fragile

I’d Rather Be Feral Than Fragile

I. Calling on all my holy helpers, guides, ancestors, and whatever powers stand ready to assist me in all the things, including healing from this motherfucker of a year and all that entails in this painting for New Moon in Pisces. It will be my praxis this cycle (from...

Invincible

Invincible

I. I took some time off blogging because I felt like I was just saying the same thing over and over again and it was tiresome. II. In the time since last we typed, GG was hospitalized. I don't want to talk about it because a) discretion and b) there's a lot of fury in...

#Mood

#Mood

I. It's been too quiet in here today and so I keep channel surfing, but to no avail. Nothing seems interesting enough to press play on and music isn't doing it either, so I'm just grappling with stillness and silence. It feels like a desert. Like my voice might echo...

Safety

Safety

I. Therapy yesterday. I started out whining that I find it frustrating that I always go into classes intending to *do the lessons* as they are offered as a way to learn new skills and develop my own style, but I always veer off at some point and do my own thing. "This...

I’m Ready For Easy

I’m Ready For Easy

I. Month end achieved. That was a SLOG y'all, but the results were just gorgeous. These tutorials all went up in Book Of Days 2021. This went up in Moonshine & Moonshine Lite for February. This was for Journal Jam, which we streamed live yesterday. The replay is...

Oh, Probably

Oh, Probably

I. Painted this happy thing live yesterday with my Coven. It is full of the rebellious joy I have been feeling lately. It's inspired by a meme that I saw floating around on Facebook which I will include at the end of today's musings. Perfect, I think, for Full Moon In...
