Today is all about the pause. What do I mean about that? Before we do anything we mustIMG_20170523_112224_756 first think of it. Imagine it. Before there is action, there is a slight pause that is expansive and full of potential. This would be were emotions are stirred up which makes it a powerful moment (regardless of how short). Relish in this pause. Allow yourself to experience it. Use it as a springboard for enthusiasm, motivation, and excitement. This is also the place in which fear arrives but that isn’t bad. Wanna know why? Fear makes our trust and desire stronger. With fear we have to trust even more in ourselves and the outcome. Tell me that isn’t beautiful!  It doesn’t have to be only for all things magick but mundane as well. Remember life is magick.

8 of Chalices Reversed

For whatever you reason, you may have found yourself switching directions in life, whether that be in residence, job, or lifestyle change. This was always as it was meant to be as we’re brought to certain points within our lives so that we may learn lessons and IMG_20170521_080448_717have experiences necessary to our journey in this lifetime. However, all because you are changing or about to make changes doesn’t mean everything must go. It’s like the old saying, “don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”. What does this mean? Well, simply put, you needn’t throw everything away and completely begin anew. There are always good aspects within a negative situation—you just have to dig enough. I’ve been through some challenging times myself that most people won’t ever have to deal with and believe me, I know how daunting and challenging such a task may seem.

Movement and action aren’t the priority today in this aspect. Instead it’s about returning to your center—to your heart space—and reflecting honestly about your journey thus far, where you want to go, and what you would like to take with you. Some things are meant to stay with us. If they had a positive impact on our lives or bring us joy then why deny them simply because we think we should instead focus our attention and energy on a new course? It’s about mixing and melding the old and the new. The dual aspects of life—past and future. Take some time today to really reflect, journal, set your intentions then create a course of action and list of goals in order to manifest this desired life that allows you to continue with certain aspects of the past that you still resonate with as well as the expansive, potential filled future of your dreams. Craft your life well, my friends.

Card of the Day
Milky Way (Perspective)

If we think about the vastness of our universe and the neverending space, we can already begin shifting our perspective as we begin to realize our problems aren’t as bad as we initially viewed them.
This is our message for today. Simply take note of how you view things and when you get down, feel frustrated,  upset or annoyed then find a way to shift your perspective of the situation,  like we naturally do when gazing at the stars and into space. Ask yourself: what you can learn from this situation? How can you use it as an opportunity for growth?  Shift your perspective from life happening to you to one where you are actively creating and dancing with your life. That’s exactly what it can feel like. A dance but guess what, YOU are the leader! You can change your life and shifting your perspective is a first step to creating the life you want.
You just have to start. I believe in you. Do you believe in yourself?

Undoubtedly, if your full moon experience was anything like mine was then loads of emotions came flooding to the surface, illuminating any hidden shadows and issues we may have been facing. There were emotions coming out of the woodwork for me that I hadn’t even realized I was still struggling with! We may be ready to jump into action to clear these emotions today but we’re being guided to not leave them behind just yet. Not to move on. Instead, we are being guided to sit and stay with them so that we may fully understand them and how they began from the start. Only with a full set of knowledge may we be capable of releasing them. I’ll be meditating and reflecting on mine today then using the residual moon energy tonight to release them and embrace the change I want.

Sunrise Magick

We awaken every morning and groggily begin our day. We immediately start thinking about the tasks of the day, fight the children awake and to school, ensure we have our morning brew, and just rush through the morning as our day begins. If you’re like me, you even complain about being up and just long to return to your warm bed and those wonderful dreams…Driving to work we may see the sun rising and being in our hurried, frazzled perspective only find it a nuisance as it keeps shining in our windshield. I’m so short that the visors do nothing!

This is our typical morning–for the most part. Agree? Well, think back to the last time you had time to yourself. Maybe you woke up before your alarm and were wide awake. Perhaps you were on vacation and wanted to soak up as much fun and pleasure as you possibly could. Either way, you might have had your morning cup of coffee and did a few minor tasks for the day. But did you watch  the sunrise? Recall the last time you watched the sunrise? What emotions and feelings did it evoke for you? Did it energize you? Give you a morning boost? Maybe that small act helped shift your entire day and allowed you a more positive and spiritually connected day.

Whenever I am able to watch the sunrise, I immediately am overwhelmed and inspired by the beauty and awesomeness of it that I grow completely silent. A smile comes to my lips as I sit quietly, observing. My heart seems to swell up with joy and I attune myself to the solar energies of the morning. I attune to the God–particularly the Boy aspect. Think about it, the sun is fresh and reborn for the day. Each day is a new chance for a new beginning! It doesn’t matter what shit happened yesterday as we have awaken renewed and refreshed. We have a whole new 24 hours (or whatever…I’m horrible at math!) and certainly don’t want to waste it rehashing the past!

Sitting in meditation, I do give thanks for the blessings in my life. If something amazing happened the day before then hell yeah, I’ll say a huge thank you! I just don’t like dwelling on the negative crap–which believe me, I am fully capable of doing! I give thanks then breathe. Those couple of deep breaths really help center myself and allow me to focus in on myself and my spirit. I can figure out how I feel and how it is the sunrise has left me feeling. What impressions did it give? By this point, I usually feel invigorated and begin setting my intentions out for the day while my eyes are closed and my face basking in the new day’s light. What an incredible feeling it gives you, my friends. That is Simple Magick. That small ritual, that little meditation, is immensely powerful and one of the most potent mood lifters while connecting you spiritually! When I feel a little exhausted or frustrated or whatever, I simply close my eyes and revision that moment. I feel the sun wash back over me and it does help.

I implore you to watch the sunrise sometime this coming week and journal about your experience. What sort of correspondences and magickal intentions did it seem to have? How did it make you feel? Did any Deities come to mind? How did it help your day? How did it spiritually and magickally assist you that day? If you feel inspired to, comment your experiences! I’d love to hear some sunrise magickal experiences from others.

Card of the Day-21 Dec 2016

Card of the Day

Fire (Passion)
During this time of year its easy to feel down and just disconnected. Though we are preoccupied with parties and getting ready for the holidays, we can still succumb to feelings of disinterest and depression. The Fire card reminds us to find what brings us alive. What lights that inner spark and inspires you? When we are passionate it’s easier for us to remember that we’re alive! We tend to be happier and wanting to enjoy all that life has to offer. Today is the first day of winter which is a holy day for Pagans as they celebrate the rebirth of the sun God. As we bring His light into this season of darkness, this reminds us that we must also rekindle our own flame–our own inner light. 

I challenge you today to find what brings you alive? What are you passionate about? Find ways to bring that into your life more! Especially during this time of year when we can suffer from the seasonal blues. 

Have a wonderful day and a very blessed Winter Solstice!

Ceremony (Invocation)
Today’s message is short and simple–take time to connect with Spirit, whatever that means to you. We’re all connected and a part of Spirit but sometimes we forget and feel isolated. Invoke Spirit/God/Goddess/The Universe/Etc. It’ll be worth it! 🙂
