Growing up I've always been fascinated in all things witchy and magical like healing crystals, mysticism, high vibes, and lightness. But on the other hand I was also curious about all things gothic and ghoulish. There was this other side of me that loved everything creepy and spooky like UFO's, the paranormal, Halloween, watching horror movies, and reading scary stories! There was something so romantic and seductive about the darkness. And for a while I thought I was a little bit weird and strange but also fickle and so I wrestled with the constant questions of who I was and what I liked. I wanted to fit into one particular mold but I was becoming this paradox and I thought to myself how I could go back and forth between two completely separate worlds. At least separate in my mind.
It wasn't up until the past few years that I began to play with the idea that I could create a cobweb for both worlds to come together. From then on, I noticed how this metaphor between light and darkness began to show up in my life everywhere I looked. Like when I needed to be the light I found that I listened more, I was softer with others, I forgave, I loved, I healed. When I needed to let go of trying to control everything or even take back my power, when I need the bravery to speak my truth, or when I needed the guts to stand up for myself and others I sought out the darkness to light a fire and fan my flames. It was like this Yin & Yang effect and I realized that by finding my balance between both worlds that one could truly benefit from the other.
For me, Lilith represents the darkness and Sage represents the lightness. I don't ever think of these entities as two separate beings, either, but rather as one whole being. And neither is particularly better than the other, just different in their own ways. Without the light there would be no darkness and vise versa. They need each other to exist and I've come to embrace both equally.
Over time, with Life's little nudges and whispers here and there, I decided I wanted to create Lilith & Sage; a place where I could mesh all of my favorite things that represent light and darkness to me and put them all in one place so that they can coexist.
So with all that being said: I welcome you to Lilith & Sage!
