One of the best ways to create the feel you’d like in your home, or in your day, or to just get in the zone, is smudging with sage.
Along with its spiritual cleansing properties, it is also antibacterial, and releases beneficial negative ions into the atmosphere (the same kinds released by waterfalls and pink salt lamps).
Join me in a little cleansing ceremony to shift your energy for today, and experience how calm and powerful you can feel when embracing a ritual mindset for yourself during your day.
It’s a beautiful thing to make the decision that today, in this moment, you are creating a positive change. That you are doing something to make your life a little better.
Keep with these positive changes all along the way. And sooner than you realize, you’ll be looking back at the you from ten years ago so proud of how far you’ve come, and shining with a confidence you never knew you’d have.
And I’ll be here with you along the way, supporting you as a sister, however I can, Goddess to Goddess.
How do you view yourself? We all have certain layers or facets of ourselves that we give stronger focus to, but do you ever break it down and look at the many branches that make up… you?
Personally, I’ve always had extremely vibrant aspects of myself take over the show for a while when they’re having a good time, or need nourishment, and often, I feel like I’m twelve people on a vacation trying to coordinate priorities without missing the view, or getting lost, with the practical and the magical constantly swirling around, in my library of possibilities that make up how I view this world.
That’s why, when I read this page about the older Norse way of viewing yourself, and the parts that came together to make up one being, I was bug-eyed and basically glued ’til completion occured.
For once, there was a perspective that held a massive resonance to my own, in a multitude of mystical and mundane ways.
We live in an era where most dismiss magic, even though nearly every person you meet can tell you a story of something they just can’t explain, where most people refuse to acknowledge the miraculous, unless it was provided by the only deity they trust enough to deem “real.”
Yet, in the days of our ancient ancestors, people saw more to life. Words held power. Being filled with the energy of life and all of its cycles was an aspect of who you were, and was directly tied to your success and how life would unfold for you.
The physical body was a malleable vessel whose form could restructure when strong, and spirit companions, familiars and the like, were natural, and a part of who you were.
THIS feels more “true” than what I grew up with, in a world where magick is resting by your side, waiting quietly, invisible, alive.
So tell me, what is your magick, in your identity, the mystical about you, that you hide? And will you allow it, as the quiet, subtle nature of the magick, here, itself… to be real again?
To learn that these perspectives were a part of my distant heritage, it made me feel that much more… among my own. And that, in turn, inspired me to share this with you.
We ARE magick. Every fibre of your being is magick, and it is only through noticing this that we make it a home here… that we nestle its glimmer into all that we are, all we do.
This day, you are given a choice. To awaken what’s stirring within you, or let it slumber. Let this be the day that your magick arose and took shape.
