A Ritual to Let Your Magic Out
I’m watching Magic start to come back into this world. Little flickers of hope are popping into our daily lives. Women are winning elections, which means we are ready to be empowered. Wounds that need to heal are surfacing. Movements like #MeToo and Black Lives Matter are creating change. I’m watching as our world is evolving quickly, and in a magical and needed way. We are ready for this change and can no longer ignore what we wanted to ignore. We are creating this with our lives, and underneath it all, Magic is guiding us back to what is divinely ours.
For the last year and a half, I have been struggling with health issues; an all-consuming illness that made me feel like I was wading through molasses. This heavy feeling especially weighed down my magic. What was once easy to access and filled my life with joy, suddenly started to float away, become dim and hard to be in touch with. I felt lost in this sea of molasses while I was also physically getting weak. Every month my life slipped away in small ways. One month I was too weak during the week to go out at night. One month I stopped going to the grocery store because it was too exhausting. Another month, I stopped going out on the weekends. Then I was going home before 6pm every night to crawl into bed with my heating pad. On and on it went until this New Magical energy started to come in.
Step by step, my life started to return. I could go out at night every few weeks. I could start to see friends again. I added in writing adventures and product-making. This year I was forced to give up my corporate life but now I start to see why. Step-by-step, I am rebuilding my life. Step-by-step, I start to see the path again. My health is quickly becoming my cornerstone of my life. Without taking care of myself, I can no longer effectively care of others. As I start to venture into my new, healthier, lifestyle and listen to my body more, I can feel the strength returning. I’m also watching women around the world find their strength. Some have already gone through a metamorphosis similar to mine, and they are ready to create change for others. Some are coming forward with the wounds that need to heal and leading the way to becoming healthier.
One great part of this healing is that it is not just happening literally, but on a larger, cosmic, scale. Women are empowering each other and ready to take on new roles in life. Women are ready to bring about change through healing; a healing we need.
Little by little, Magic is coming back.
I have seen a return to Magic in my daily life. There are little glimmers of Magic in the moments throughout the day where I find myself smiling at the Divine. I see sparkles of Divine Humor and sometimes I am stopped in my tracks by all the changes happening; happening to me and throughout the world. For me personally, I see how every part of my life is waking up. I can feel the magic returning and it feels like coming home. I feel like I can breathe again. I can see and feel Everyday Magic. I can relax a little more into faith that the Divine is still very much alive and with us. And I am being rewarded for doing my work. With every step I take towards listening to myself and taking care of myself, I find my life changing into a much better life. After not having a passport for 10 years, I just received a new passport, so I can spend time with friends in other countries. I have been so focused on my job in the last 10 years that the idea of traveling felt like something only other people did. I have visions of writing my Rituals by the fireplace, drinking hot tea while my friends ski. Because of my health issues, I can no longer ski but this does not mean I can’t feed my soul by snowshoeing or enjoying the scenery by a fireplace. I have visions of seeing friends that I haven’t seen in years. Sometimes 20 or more. I have visions of Scotland, Germany, Sweden, Australia and Japan. After not holding New Moon Rituals because I was so physically ill, I am now hosting New Moon events again. I am ready to hold space for others because I am taking such good care of myself. I am ready to create magic for others, because I can see it in my life again.
How can you heal to bring in more magic?
What can you release to bring more magic into your life? What can you release to make room for magic? What is your body and spirit trying to tell you that you have been ignoring? Let’s create some space in our lives to bring in more magic. Let’s release what needs to be released so that we have room for faith in the Universe. We need to care of ourselves so we can take care of each other. We need to call in physical well-being so we have the strength to make this world healthier. We need to call in magic because it’s our birthright and it is what makes the Feminine so divine. How can you take care of yourself so that you can make your life and this world a better place? All around us we see women doing this work on a personal basis and on a larger scale. As there is a lot of healing to be done, we need our strength and magic to survive.
As I continue to listen to my body and spirit, as I let go of my ego that is connected to my social titles, I am embracing more magic, more friends, more clients and more community. As I stop trying to live by rules built in a society that had no interest in Feminine and the Divine, I find myself gaining strength and magic and being able to help others. Not only being able to help others, but realizing it’s my duty, it’s my divine birthright. This journey is more about others than it is about myself. I am hear to help others create the life and community they long for. In return, I am rewarded with creating the life I want. As I release my old stories, and I speak my truth, I am feeling more Joy and Gratitude for my life. I am ready to witness women becoming stronger and I am here to help heal and change how we live our lives. I’m ready for the darkness to be shined out by the light. I am ready for healing on a world-wide scale. We all deserve to be loved, taken care of and the energy and space to help others.
Sit in silence for 5 to 25 minutes. Let your thoughts and feelings come up about what you can do to bring more Magic in your life. Where are you noticing Magic lately? Where do you yearn for Magic in your life? Where can you release the old wounds to make room for new Magical moments? Drink some hot tea if this will help you allow these feelings to come up. Write in your journal all these feelings, visions and insights that come up. Feel them, acknowledge them and let them out. Write them down, speak them, and prepare to release them. When you feel ready, light a candle and say a little release prayer. Let the words come out. These will be unique to you. Let these words release when you blow out the candle. Let them go.
Our world in changing. We are changing. We must live in this world in a healthier way and this change starts with our own lives and moves outward. Let’s call in this Magic to help end this year with Excitement, Strength and Love. We will certainly need it in 2018 in a very big way.
