Bridget Bishop was the first person ever executed for allegedly practicing witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. There are some discrepancies in the historical interpretation records. One of those is that she was a resident of Salem Town and not the tavern owner as was believed. She had stated at her deposition that she never saw the people s\she was being associated with nor was she ever where they said she had been. She was a housewife accused of Witchcraft and Conspiracy with the Devil. She was executed by hanging. After her hanging her criminal status was vacated. She had been confused numerous times with Sarah Bishop who was also accused during the Salem trial. A;though men were also being accused of witchcraft, those being indicted were mostly women during that time. There was very little time between being accused and within days they were sentenced to death. The sad part is that Bridget Bishop had already been deemed innocent a decade following up to the whole witchcraft saga.
She had been married three possibly four times. During her first marriage she had two sons and a daughter. She married a second time after her first husband died shortly after their marriage. She married a widower who was a prominent businessman which produced another daughter. After this marriage she was accused of causing her husband's death via bewitching. She was, however, acquitted due to lack of evidence. Her third husband was a prosperous sawyer and founder of the First Church of Beverly.
Bridget and her third husband ran two taverns together. Due to her exotic attire and bright colors she didn’t meet the standards of someone who associated with the devil.
She was accused of bewitching five young women in April of 1692. People who testified at her trial alleged that there was a shape that looked like her that would do things to them. This shape would also threaten them if they didn’t write her name in a specific book. It’s alleged that during her trial she would look at those accusing her and they would immediately go down and only her touch would bring them back. There were other accusations of her being able to harm people with just her look. Her own husband said she worshipped the devil. Her trial lasted eight days and she became the first woman to die from hanging which was the official start of the Salem Witchcraft Trials.

Do you take your uniqueness serious?
Do you have a positive tribe alongside of you?
Does fulfilling your purpose make a difference for you?
Do you own your shit?
Do you believe in sharing your gift?
Do you step out of your comfort zone to make things happen?
Do you meditate to connect with your true self?
Well guess what you are a "Spiritual Badass". You share your gift to help others and do good in the physical world. You have a very giving heart and are a beautiful soul. With your positive energy there is no stopping you from healing others and also obtaining what you set your mind to. Why, because you are a "Spiritual Badass", that's why.
Have you ever felt like you were different from others, as if you were put here on earth but you don't really belong? Or have you ever wondered when your true people are going to come and get you? Well guess what, you may just be an Earth Angel. We distinguish Earth Angels by the passion they have for healing, teaching or just helping others. We can also be Earth Angels and have relationship issues, substance abuse issues or other types of challenges. If you absolutely cannot stand violence and are highly sensitive you are most likely an Earth Angel. Although we all originate from the same divine sources our personal history and our environment play a huge role in shaping our personalities and our physical characteristics. Let me be clear, not all everyone is an Earth Angel. Those that are not Earth Angels live life for their own enjoyment and/or growth. They appear to be nonspiritual and their lives are dedicate to human earthly concerns.

Do you ever wonder what to do with essential oils? There are many things that can be accomplished just by diffusing oils. Diffusing oils is a natural way to get relief from allergies, relaxation for mediation and also to give your home or office a spring clean scent. If you don't wish to invest in a diffuser you can always use a regular cooking pot with water on the stove and just add your oils to it and let it boil. Remember to use a pot that you won't use for cooking as not all essential oils are edible. Below I will post some recipes for different oils and what they are for.
Allergy Relief Mediation
3 drops peppermint 3 drops cedarwood
3 drops lemon 2 drops patchouli
3 drops lavender 3 drops lavendar
Spring Clean Scent Clean and Fresh Scent
2 drops lavender 3 drops eucalyptus

Ways to take care of yourself if you are an empath during these difficult times.
For those of us who are empaths times like these can be even more difficult than for the ordinary person. As empaths we tend to pick up on everyone's energy be it fear, anxiety or just plain helplessness. I’m going to give you a few tips to help you stay focused and positive.
♦ Drink plenty of water
♦ If you need to go out set your intentions and surround yourself with the white light of protection
♦ Ask yourself if what you are feeling is yours or if you picked up on someone else's energy
♦ Use our crystal especially the black obsidian
♦ Ask the universe to release whatever it is you are feeling
♦ Most importantly stay away from the news you don't need to absorb all the fear they are putting out
