My Year of Magic

Friday, September 30, 2016

Wouldn't it be wonderful if every day held a little more magic? Well, it does, but there are some days we have to dig for it. With my 39th birthday coming up tomorrow I've decided to begin it with what I'm calling "My Year of Magic." I think it's a nice sendoff of my thirties and a wonderful way to welcome my forties. It's my hope to be even more mindful of synchronicity & serendipity, to seek out joy and have a heart full of gratitude instead of a mind full of fear, doubt, or guilt, and to follow any little thing that brings me bliss.

So, yes, I'm kicking off my favorite month with magic! I think it's also perfect how it will begin with my birthday, a very special wedding, and the lingering positive energy of today's New Moon. I got a head start on the fun and am revisiting the pages of one of my favorite books: Big Magic, and I plan to watch my favorite movie, Practical Magic, of course. Next weekend, if not this Sunday, we'll be going to see Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. That's just the beginning of October! We've made some plans for a couple scenic trips and fun haunting events. You know I'm definitely excited about Halloween/Samhain!  

After a wild summer and a super-busy September, I'm definitely ready for this October to begin. In fact, I already turned the page on my calendar! I'm looking forward to My Year of Magic. Will you join me? I'll be posting daily magic as much as possible on Instagram, so look for #myyearofmagic. Be sure to share your posts, too!  

Wishing you all a blessed New Moon and a magical October!

Peace & Blessings,

Wisdom Walks...

Monday, August 29, 2016

I definitely believe this because when I go on my daily walks I often find the insight I've been seeking. You might call this a form of walking meditation, but I like to think of them as wisdom walks. Sometimes the only way to get clear is to get outside and get moving. I take the first 5-10 minutes to clean out the mind clutter. It's an opportunity to get current needless worries, to-dos, or critical thoughts sorted out, so after this allotted time I feel calm, relaxed, and have a better mind-set. 

Then I'm ready to get to the good stuff...the deeper part of myself where the heart of my creativity and truth lie. I can now focus on what's truly important. It might be a scene idea for the book I'm writing, or I need to work through new plans for my spiritual business. Often I'm looking to connect with nature or my guides, and sometimes I don't want to think about anything, but simply need to just be.

Thank you for stopping by to read my latest post, which was inspired by one of my walks!
