Wicked Veracity Podcast Show Notes | Episode 1

What does it mean to be wicked?

The dictionary has a lot to say about the definition.

  1. Going beyond reasonable or predictable limits: 
  2. of exceptional quality or degree
  3. Disposed to or marked by mischief
  4. Morally very bad⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

To me, it's a mixture of the first three, but there are people who would be all in for placing me in the last category ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The thing is, bad and good are subjective. Morality is subjective. They're all just thoughts roaming freely in the vast wilderness that is the mind. My mind, your mind, the minds of the people you like and those you think would be better off anywhere but near you. 

Think of a rampaging rhino - then you have an idea of what an unmanaged mind with all of its theories on good and bad looks like. A managed mind is much more civilized, it’s more like a herd of cows being moved just below the threshold of a stampede by a skilled and exhausted cowboy. You’re the cowboy, and it’s up to you to drive those bovine thoughts in the direction you want them to go. 

The point is,  it’s a challenge domesticating my own thoughts and impossible to control the thoughts of others, so I don't even try.

That’s not entirely true. I use to try a lot and sometimes still do in the form of people pleasing or not being my biggest most audacious self. But I know that my job is to manage my thoughts and become the wickedest version of myself I can dream up…. and to leave others to embrace their own wickedness as they will. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

But what I’ve found is, the more I focus on managing my own mind and the less I cater to trying to control the thoughts of others - the more likely I am to be placed in that last category - morally very bad.  

After all, how can I possibly be a rational, thought work advocating, science loving, Vulcan level logician and a stoic witch who uses astrology, magic, and works with a diverse pantheon of deities all at the same time.  

Because I’m all in to be the most authentic, wicked version of myself regardless of what anyone else thinks.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I'm SO excited to be on this journey with you and hope over time to hear all the ways in which you are wicked. To help you go beyond being reasonable and leap over predictable limits you’ve thought existed for you. 

I know you are exceptional. You are wicked. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So tell me... 

  • What was the last wicked thing you did?
  • What do you want for yourself that you think would be wicked - using any of the above definitions?
  • What would you want to be, see, do, or have if doing so would only result in you believing you were exceptional. 

Spend time with these questions and see what comes up. If you’re feeling frisky, hit me up on Instagram and share your answers with me.

Until next time, my wish for you is inspired by one of the wickedest witches of Oz. For you to realize the power you seek has been in you all along waiting to be set free.
