Bringing your magick to life as you create a life you love living

DO YOU WANT MORE MAGICK EACH WEEK?

Join the newsletter below:

This week we see the turn of the wheel with the Northern Hemisphere welcoming the beginning of spring and the Southern Hemisphere beginning to wind down summer.

These transition times are the perfect opportunity to check in with how you’re feeling, what’s working for you and what you’re feeling called to change.

Today we use the MMM’s to give yourself a moment to check-in with yourself and receive the wisdom from these seasonal changes.

1. Magick: Something for you to journal about

What’s changing in nature around you and how is this affecting you?

Perhaps, if you’re in the Northern hemisphere, you’re beginning to notice that nature is waking up around you. Here in the UK the snowdrops and daffodils are starting to appear, letting us know that the earth is beginning to wake up from the slumber of winter.

Maybe you’ve noticed the mornings getting lighter and your commute or school run is now in the daylight?

As you notice these external changes, become curious about how they might be influencing or reflecting how you feel internally. Perhaps you also notice an awakening of an idea, a stirring of a longing or desire from within?

As we become more connected and observant about the world around us, we can become more connected to our own inner nature.

 

★ Tip: Each day become curious about something new or different that you notice about your surroundings.

2. Mastery: Something for you to think about

Every season is one of becoming, but not always one of blooming. Be gracious with your ever-evolving self.” B. Oakman

We live in a world that often equates success and achievement with production and being busy. Rest can be seen as frivolous, a waste of time, even as selfish.

And yet rest is as important as doing.

When we look to the seasons, they remind us of the need for production and growth, but also of the importance of the need to rest.

In spring the seeds that have been planted begin to grow. In summer they peak with their full and beautiful blooms. In autumn they begin to return to the earth and in winter the earth rests.

Just as any project you work on, you create from the seeds of your ideas and intentions so that you can then enjoy the rewards of your work. You then benefit from reviewing what worked as you let go of anything didn’t support your idea come to fruition. Finally, after all your efforts, you rest and take time to connect with and dream about your next projects, until it’s time to take action again.

And yet instead of working with this natural cycle of life, the ebb and flow of your energy, productivity and creativity, we can feel pressured to produce, produce, produce and create, create, create.

When to do your best work, to feel nourished and fulfilled, it’s essential to honour all stages of the cycle.

 

★ Tip: Think of a project that you’re working on or want to work on – what season is it currently in? Is it time to take action, or does it need more time to rest and incubate?

3. Momentum: Action for you to take

Give yourself what you need.

What do you need?

Such an important question, but so easily overlooked or pushed to the bottom of the to-do list.

Focus on the needs that you can meet in the short-term.

You might ‘need’ a holiday, but that might be months away. So, what is it that you need, that a holiday will give you?

Perhaps it’s some rest. If so, how can you make room and prioritise some rest now, it could be to take a five-minute break from your desk or commit to going to bed early.

Other needs you might consider:

    • Saying ‘no’ to something so you have more time to do what you actually want to
    • Saying ‘yes’ to something that brings you joy
    • Drinking more water
    • Moving your body
    • Getting some fresh air
    • Reading 5 pages of a book
    • Calling a friend
    • Asking for additional help

Try and focus on what you can give yourself, rather than what you need others to do.

However, if what you need is for someone else to change their behaviour, then you can meet that need by having the conversation with them about their behaviour or asserting your boundaries.

 

★ Tip: Each day for the next week, get into the habit of asking; ‘What do I need?’ You might not always get the answer, but as you get into the habit of asking this, it creates a deeper relationship with yourself.

 

I’d love to know which of the three MMM’s you’re going try so that you can honour your natural rhythms, let me know over in our community.

Let’s express more magick!

Today on the A Pinch of Magick podcast I talk about how connecting with the changes of season can help you (re)discover your own rhythm.

 

I discuss:

  • The importance of finding and honouring your own rhythm
  • The sabbats / earth festivals
  • How the changes in season impact us, even f we don’t notice them
  • How we can lose connection to our inner rhythm, but it’s always there
  • The things that can disconnect us to our inner rhythms
  • Noticing how the land and light around you impact your energy
  • How connecting with the land can reconnect you to yourself
  • How planning events according to your own energy can improve relationships
What are you noticing in the changing land around you right now and does that reflect how your energy is currently feeling?
